46 • September 2018 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS The new DPM-300 scanner monitors and displays material levels from a variety of BinMaster sensors via a super-large, superluminous, six-character LED readout housed in a durable enclosure. It can communicate with any Modbus-enabled sensors, functioning as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. Additionally, the device includes two independently programmable analog process input channels for a total monitoring capability of up to 16 process variables—enabling the DPM-300 to display real-time data that makes it easy for users to measure, monitor and control multiple vessels. Convenient for drivers or other production personnel to read levels from up to 100 feet away, the DPM-300 is the biggest, brightest, and toughest in the BinMaster line of digital panel meters. It features a NEMA 4x, IP65 rated enclosure and UV-resistant, sunlight readable display with extra- large 1.8-in. characters, and suits high dust applications such as concrete, cement or aggregates. — BinMaster, Lincoln, Neb., Modbus large digital display A new catalog from a global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems includes data related to product part numbers, measurements, weights and replacements. Current offerings include: Exterra belt clean- ers, impact beds, transition zone solutions, belt covers, sensors and scales, auto greasers, and safety solutions. Beyond the accessories offering, the company's Components Division publishes catalogs for conveyor idler and pulley lines. — Superior Industries, Inc., Morris, Minn., 320/589-2406; Conveyor components accessories The axleWEIGH In Motion Truck Scale dynamically measures each axle and prints a receipt with individual axle weights and total weights, provided drivers slow to 3 mph but do not stop. It also calculates net vehicle weight regardless of truck length or configuration. Drivers stop at the controller, enter tare weight or truck I.D. to recall a stored tare weight in a single pass, or can use two-pass weighing and the controller will calculate the gross, tare, and net values. Featuring factory calibrated load cells and a preprogrammed indi- cator, the axleWEIGH In Motion Truck Scale yields better than ±0.5 percent repeatability on average. Preconfigured for easy installa- tion, the dynamic weighing truck scale can be installed on a gravel driveway, eliminating the need for ramps. Suitable for a variety of applications, the controller can provide a CSV file with job numbers for every transaction. — Alliance Scale, Inc., Canton, Mass., 800/343- 6802; IN MOTION SCALE WEIGHS BY AXLE Migrating corrosion inhibitors have been added to the single-component ChemSpeed 75 and ChemSpeed 75 ES (Extended Set) mortars, each suiting 0.50-in. thick to full depth structural slab, bridge or parking deck, column, beam and pavement repairs. The high early strength mortars offer versatile placement options, including hori- zontal trowel, vertical and overhead form and pump applications. ChemSpeed 75 reaches initial set in 13 to 19 minutes, while ChemSpeed 75 ES has an extended initial set of 40 to 50 minutes for increased flow and easier use in hot weather. The mortars resist the effects of freeze/thaw cycles; the addition of migrating corrosion inhibitor ensures protection for rebar and structural steel. Formulated to reach 2,000 psi compressive strength within one hour, theys can be placed at temperatures down to 20° F and primed or coated with as little as four hours' cure. — ChemMasters Inc., Madison, Ohio; 800/486-7866; Corrosion inhibitor-dosed structural repair mortars
