Ice Machine Weighing
A customer would like to check the amount of ice in the ice machine without leaving their vehicle. If the amount is below the desired weight, they will add more.
Interface suggests using their Bluetooth® Telemetry System as an easy wireless solution to this application. Four SSB Sealed Beam Load Cells are mounted to the feet of the ice machine, and connected to the BTS Bluetooth Telemetry System. Force results are wirelessly transmitted to the customer’s using the BTS Mobile App.
Interface’s solution is to attach the WMC Sealed Stainless Steel Miniature Load Cell to the actuator of the test rig. The airbag connector is held in place at the bottom of the test rig. Forces are applied and measured using the 9330 High Speed Data Logger as the connector is pushed down to latch together. Results can be logged, downloaded, and reviewed when connected to a PC or laptop.
Interface’s Bluetooth® Telemetry System successfully measured the ice machine’s weight and wirelessly transmitted it to the customer’s phone for quick and immediate results.
