Rice Lake Weighing Systems’ iQUBE² Digital Diagnostic Junction Box performs the same diagnostic functions as a truck scale that uses a digital load cell, but at a more affordable price. All truck scales perform an analog-to-digital conversion to display weight as a digital readout.

The primary difference between current digital truck scale designs is where that conversion takes place: At the load cell or at the junction box.

Some truck scales use an analog-to-digital, or simply “digital,” load cell. Diagnostic activity then takes place at the load cell. However, with analog load cells and an iQUBE², a truck scale can conduct diagnostic functions at the junction box. iQUBE² performs analog-to-digital conversion inside the junction box, meaning sensitive electronic components are less susceptible to damage from vibration and moisture.

 

Superior Load Cell Diagnostics with iQUBE²

iQUBE² offers the same load cell diagnostics as a truck scale using a digital load cell, but for a fraction of the cost. This advanced junction box runs diagnostics for failed cells, weighing errors and system health.

For mission-critical applications and unmatched performance, iQUBE2 is the equipment of choice. Its high-speed ability to update up to 500 times per second on multi-channels makes it the fastest smart junction box available. Unmatched reaction time brings accuracy to new levels, increasing precision and profits.

Enhanced onboard diagnostics will identify noise, test for linearity and zero reference, and monitor drift. Diagnostics are enhanced by a unique load cell emulation feature which compensates for a failing load cell until a repair can be made.

 

Cell Emulation

With cell emulation, iQUBE² is capable of calculating what the weight of a failed load cell should be based on comparisons to functioning load cells. iQUBE² ensures your scale can continue weighing temporarily even after a load cell failure. This can mean the difference between continuing an efficient process and having to shut down the plant early.
