What talents and skills does a leader need to have?
Perhaps, among the many necessary ones, there are also those that TLM8, the weight transmitter with 8 independent reading channels, demonstrates in its work every day.
Let’s together see what they are!
1 - IS ALWAYS ON THE FRONT LINE.
A leader doesn’t hesitate in the face of difficulties but tackles problems in the field, alongside his team members.
This is what TLM8 does, which gives the best of itself even when mounted to the back panel, but it really expresses itself fully when installed in the field.
Ideal in situations where the PLC is far from the weighing system (for example in a tank depot), TLM8 brings them closer ensuring an effective communication.
Remaining next to the structure to be weighed, it receives and supports the very fragile electrical signal of the load cells, and ensures that the stronger one of the fieldbus can travel undisturbed even over long distances, thus taking its reprocessed message to the PLC.
2 - IS RELIABLE.
Its reliability in this type of installation is ensured by the IP67 protected polycarbonate box housing it.
The back of the box, with PG9 cable glands, ensures a perfect seal.
3 - CAN INNOVATE ITSELF.
TLM8 is constantly evolving to meet new challenges: it is soon to be available in the IP68/IP69K stainless steel box version for the most demanding industries.
4 - CAN MEDIATE AND COMMUNICATE.
TLM8 receives, joins, translates and transmits: it is charismatic in every type of communication.
As a true mediator, it links the weighing system with the PLC, harmonizing their different languages.
To achieve this, it interfaces with as many as 14 different fieldbuses, it has 3 digital inputs and 5 relay outputs and by default has both an RS485 Modbus RTU serial port and a 16 bit analogue output.
5 - IDENTIFIES AND SOLVES PROBLEMS.
There is no complexity or challenge that TLM8 is unwilling to face and solve to make everyone's job easier.
When installed in the field near the weighing system, it avoids using the junction box: it becomes a “smart” box itself, thanks to the integrated functions of diagnostics and digital equalization, which equalizes the response of the connected load cells (watch the tutorial).
The backlit LCD graphic display facilitates diagnostics by graphically showing the operation of the 8 channels, load distribution and response signal in mV on each active channel.
Diagnostics are made even more immediate by the TEST key: an exclusive shortcut that allows accessing them directly without having to go through the instrument Menu.
6 - CERTIFIES ITS RESULTS.
Its skills are tangible and proven:
▪ OIML R76 (NAWI) certification
▪ UL certification (compliant with U.S. and Canadian regulations)
▪ EAC certification (compliant with the regulations of the Eurasian Customs Union (Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan)).
As a leader, TLM8 feels responsible for the success of a project and goes the extra mile, for the weighing systems in which it is called on to work together.
It draws together and communicates, it focuses on the problems and solves them quickly: if also your team needs such a profile,
All the advantages of custom load cells, now also for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
