  • Analog input required on third party controller or PLC
  • Uses proprietary Power Supply that provides better protection against power surges and lightning
  • Requires 1 HL-10A for every bin

HouseLINK 10D (HL-10D)

The HouseLINK 10D (HL-10D) provides a user configurable pulsed output as weight is removed from the bin.

  • Digital input required on third party controller
  • Simulates a dump scale
  • Compatible with ChoreTronics® II or III controller
  • Utilizes the Power Supply from the BinTrac® bin weighing system
  • Requires 1 HL-10D for every BinTrac® Indicator.

HouseLINK 10P (HL-10P)

The HouseLINK 10P (HL-10P) provides a 2-3 mV/V output proportional to the bin weight.

  • Simulates analog load cells
  • Get power through the excitation of the control
  • HL-10P is compatible with Rotem® controls. The Rotem controller will require a scale card, silo plug and scale card power supply to work.
  • HL-10P (Low Voltage) is compatible with Maximus controls when connected to the Maximus scale card
  • Requires 1 HL-10p or HL-10P (Low Voltage) per bin.

HouseLINK 10S (HL-10S)

The HouseLINK 10S (HL-10S) provides an RS232 or RS485 serial interface to peripheral serial devices.

  • The HouseLINK 10S supports broadcast or polled protocols via ASCII or MODBUS data formats.
  • Used with proprietary power supply that provides better protection against power surges and lightning.
  • Compatible with AEI, PMSI, MTech-Systems or other PLC.
  • Future development to include communication hub functionality
  • Requires 1 HL-10S per connected Serial device.

HouseLINK 10E (HL-10E)

The HouseLINK 10E (HL-10E) provides an Ethernet data connection to the BinTrac® bin weighing system.

  • The HouseLINK 10E supports Modbus TCP or XML for communications with a PLC or other devices.
  • Used with proprietary power supply that provides better protection against power surges and lightning.
  • A built in web server provides easy setup and access to weight data
  • Maximum of 8 Bintrac indicators per HL-10E per connected PLC or other device.
