Cardinal Scale Offers New SB-500 and SB-500M Remote Displays

Webb City, MO - Getting the message is no longer a remote possibility. Cardinal Scale now offers the giant, new SB-500 and SB-500M remote displays, which are clearly visible for highway applications and flexible enough for use indoors or out. Their 5" (127 mm) high-intensity LED displays are viewable in direct sunlight with a viewing angle of 140° and have high visibility combined with extreme distance viewing. These units feature ten levels of brightness, which change intensity automatically via ambient light sensors to automatically adjust the display intensity between day and night settings. The painted mild steel, weatherproof enclosures meet NEMA 4/IP65 requirements and incorporate mounting tabs for mounting on a vertical surface. Built-in rain hoods are standard and the overall dimensions of the SB-500 are 32 1/8" W x 16 ¾" H x 5 ½" D.

The SB-500 utilizes Cardinal's autolearn mode allowing the remote display to plug and play with virtually any digital indicator via standard RS-232 connection, 20mA, RS422/485. Cardinal's Smart Configurator software allows a custom configuration through the upload of serial data. Alpha display of units makes the SB-500 easy to read, without confusing status lamps. The SB-500 supports alpha character descriptions for weight units and mode of operation (gross, net, tare descriptors).

The SB-500M employs message board capabilities. Whether the user needs to direct vehicles on and off the scale or simply display scrolling messages, the SB-500M provides a clear display of moving and static alpha characters. Each digit consists of up to 24 segments for greater readability. Custom design the SB-500M to display messages directly from a programmable indicator or PC environment.
