The Trimble Loadrite L3180 SmartScale is now available as an option on Hyundai wheel loaders across the European Union from Trimble and Hyundai Construction Equipment.

The Loadrite L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence and solid state sensors for more accurate and faster loading, according to the company, and connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of data via built-in WiFi to InsightHQ reporting portal.

InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble Loadrite devices on loaders, excavators and conveyors across the site to provide near real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing and load-out operations.

Trimble’s loader scale platform features weighing, data management and an interface. The weighing software and hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to load quickly and more productively.

“Payload measurement is a great way to ensure every truck load is optimized,” says Kevin Garcia, general manager of Trimble Civil Specialty Solutions. “Trimble Loadrite onboard weighing technology on Hyundai loaders enables our customers to maximize productivity and efficiency on every bucket loaded.”

Weighing

According to Trimble, the Loadrite L3180 offers more precise weighing than any previous Loadrite system in a wide range of conditions, including adjusting for rough terrain, operator technique and machine movement using weighing intelligence. The system also features digital CAN-bus sensors for noise immunity and ground slope compensation as standard.

Data Management

The L3180 now offers in-cab key performance indicators (KPIs), including tph, tons and truck count to enable operators to monitor performance and achieve daily targets.

When using Trimble’s cloud-based InsightHQ quarry reporting portal, personnel can gain access to site production and operator performance KPIs on desktop or mobile devices. Data is presented in dashboard or graphical formats, including a load-out performance heat map powered by built-in GPS. The system caches data locally and syncs it with InsightHQ.

Interface

The L3180 features a 5.7-in. touchscreen display, which is twice the size of previous Loadrite generation displays. Cleaner interface design, graphics and a touchscreen allow for faster menu navigation and interaction. Loading information details, including customers and products for each job, can be customized on the interface by each operator to match their workflow and make it easier to see the right information.

Availability

The Trimble Loadrite L3180 SmartScale is available now as an option from Hyundai Construction Equipment dealers across Europe. Loadrite scales are installed and supported by local Loadrite dealers.
