48 • September 2018 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS The Model RS-23 thread-less eyebolt is the newest accessory item for the manufacturer's line of pull cords and safety stop controls. The main advantage of the double eye is that no drilling is required to install; users simply place one of the two eyes under an idler with the existing idler bolt, and then thread the cable through the other eye. The Model RS-23 can be used on most troughing belt conveyors at a recommended 10-ft. spacing. Device can be used with the models RS or RSB, and model PC pull cord devices. — Conveyor Components Co., Croswell, Mich., 800/233-3233; CONVEYOR IDLER EYEBOLT Armor Digital Truck Scales can be moved to multiple locations for changing job sites. A modular design with expandable bulkheads allows operators to vary platform sizes depending on weighing needs. The scales feature IP69K-rated waterproof digital SmartCell load cells; capacities up to 135 tons; heavy-weight 50-ton CLC; 5/16-in. thick checkered steel deck; anti-corrosion baked-on tan powder paint; top-side access to all electronics; and, NTEP and Measurement Canada approval. Armor Scales have a low, 18-in. profile and versatile design. The scale can be set on compacted ground surfaces or concrete piers. The floating center module makes it easy to add or remove sections to fit application requirements. The clearance gap below the lower frame allows for easy washout cleaning. Set up is expedited as there are no junction boxes used in the scale and the digital load cells plug and play with each other and provide digital diagnostics for each individual load cell at the indicator. A debris-inhibiting load cell stand design limits obstructions to the scale's performance, the cells mounted high within the stand near the scale deck. Stands are fabricated from 1-in. thick steel to minimize rust and corrosion damage and ensure long-term strength and durability. Cloud-based iSite remote monitoring software offers e-mail and/or text alerts to ensure scale is performing during peak operations. — Cardinal Scale Mfg., Webb City, Mo., 800/441-4237; Portable digital scales
