Remote Display Series Offers 8- and 12-Character Models with Alphanumeric Messaging Capability


Avery Weigh-Tronix, Inc. introduces the XR 8M and XR 12M, the latest additions to the company’s XR Series of bright-red LED remote displays—designed to convey weight, time/date and other key data in scale transactions. Each model delivers a 5x7" matrix display that allows operators to easily slide, scroll or flash any alphanumeric message.
The XR 8M and XR 12M display up to eight 4" characters or twelve 3.5" characters, respectively, and provide excellent readability at ranges up to 250 (XR 8M) and 200 (XR 12M) feet.

Utilizing advanced Auto-Learn technology, the XR 8M and XR 12M remote displays allow for simple connection and communication with the controlling device, such as an indicator or PC, automatically learning the data string of virtually any instrument for true plug-and-play operation. The units also include four annunciators for GR (gross), NT (net), lb (pounds) and kg (kilograms), plus decimal points indication. To provide an easy visual reference during loading or unloading operations, the displays additionally feature a full-width bar graph to verify process status.

The XR 8M and XR 12M displays deliver excellent readability in outdoor and in-plant conditions, including in applications such as unattended truck scale systems, batching and process control, and government weigh stations. A robust enclosure design made of weatherproof, powder-coated mild steel additionally defends against challenging application environments.

These new models pair increased messaging capability with the rugged, high-visibility design of the XR Series family of remote displays. The XR Series offers models with LED digits ranging from 2" to 6.5" with bright, easy-to-read characters that deliver high visibility indoors or outdoors—including in direct sunlight. To ensure optimum viewing at all times, the displays include an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts LED brightness for night and day. All models are also equipped for the easy-to-install RF option, allowing wireless communication to a remotely located PC or scale indicator.

Additional features of the XR 8M and XR 12M remote displays include:

• Mirror function for displaying information in the correct orientation when viewed in rear-view or side-view mirrors
• Power-saving mode assures efficient operation during periods of inactivity; user-selected time/date or optional temperature reading will display when inactive
