Overview
1.1
Important Information
These instructions cover all Loadmaster Alpha variants unless stated otherwise.
NOTE: FITTING, CALIBRATION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE LOADMASTER SYSTEM MUST ONLY BE
UNDERTAKEN BY A TRAINED INSTALLER. ANY ATTEMPT BY UNQUALIFIED PERSONNEL TO
INTERFERE WITH OR ALTER THE INSTALLATION OR SETUP OF THE SYSTEM, MAY RESULT IN
DAMAGE TO THE MACHINE, PERSONAL INJURY OR POSSIBLE DEATH!
This manual provides general guidelines that will enable the experienced installer to adapt the system
successfully to the majority of machine makes and models. If you are in any doubt regarding an
installation detail for a particular machine, then further technical guidance and specific installation
detail is available from RDS Technology. Log in the website, or contact the RDS Service and Support
Department at the factory.
RDS Technology Ltd does not accept responsibility for faulty operation of the system or consequential
damage, as a result of poor workmanship of installation, or any aspect of component installation that
does not comply with the requirements for correct operation as stated in this manual. The installer is
responsible to ensure proper fitting.
1.2
Important Safety Precautions !
In addition to observing site safety requirements, before working on the machine always :-

Make sure that the Attachment is down on the floor, and all pressure is released from the hydraulic
system, before slackening off any hydraulic coupling

Prevent the machine from being accidentally started while working on it e.g. remove the ignition key,
place a warning notice in the cab etc.

Keep other persons in the vicinity of the machine fully aware of your immediate intentions during
installation and initial calibration.

LOADMASTER ALPHA 100 CALIBRATION
Touchscreen
The instrument has a 5-wire resistive touch screen. 5-wire technology offers superior life and reliability without
requiring re-calibration. However, it consists of a polyester film outer layer that must be treated with respect,
compared to a non-touch display with toughened instrument glass. Therefore, please observe the following,
DO NOT use a sharp-pointed object - the screen will be damaged beyond repair!
Do NOT wipe or otherwise attempt to clean using any kind of solvent cleaner!.
Do NOT wipe using a dirty cloth or gloves. Use only computer screen wipes designed for the purpose!.
You may use a blunt, smooth-ended plastic object (e.g. a pen body / cap) as a stylus, if found
necessary!
1.4
Power On
Both the Head Unit and the Weighing Module are permanently powered to avoid unnecessary delay when the
machine is switched off and then restarted. The On-Off switch on the Head unit switches the system into a
hibernation mode. If the power supply is interrupted (e.g. for maintenance purposes), the system will take
approximately 60 seconds to reboot into the normal operating mode.
NOTE: The system will not boot into the weighing mode unless the SD card containing the Loadmaster Database is in
place.

Unit and Metrology
Set the Units first.
'Max Rated
Capacity'
(Approved Weighing Systems) - the maximum weight for which the system is to be
certified to measure.
'Min Rated
Capacity'
(Approved Weighing Systems) - the minimum weight for which the system is to be
( certified to measure.
Various other software settings are automatically determined by these values.
'Scale'
Scale Interval 'e'. - the smallest weight increment that you wish to operate with.
(Approved Weighing Systems) - the smallest weight increment for which the system is
to be certified to measure.
'Unit'
For all units, the smallest Scale Interval 'e' is set by default. See above.
'Alarm Weight'
Sets the maximum weight above which, the weight cannot be added to the total weight
(or printed).
(Approved Weighing Systems - MID) - Set to the 'Maximum Rated Capacity' plus 9
divisions (9 x 'e').
E.g.
M.R.C. = 10 tonnes, and 'e' = 0.05 (50kg),
Alarm Weight = 10 + (9 x 0.05) = 10.45 tonne.
M.R.C. = 10,000 lbs, and 'e' = 50 (lbs),
Alarm Weight = 10,000 + (9 x 50) = 10,450 lbs.
NOTE: 'Alarm Weight' is set independently from 'Maximum Rated Capacity', so as to
enable compliance with non-European (MID) Approved Weighing standards that may
specify a value other than 9 x 'e'.

Speed
Compensation
Mode
The choice of Speed compensation mode depends on the amount of back
pressure there is on the return side of the lift cylinder.
[Pressure]
For machines that have greater back pressure.
General guideline: This setting should be selected for wheeled loading
shovels, for more advanced dynamic weighing.
Time
For machines that have low back pressure, using the standard, more
traditional Loadmaster sampling method.
General guideline: This setting should be selected for telehandlers.
NOTE:The 'Dynamic Bounce Filter' setting should be set to 100%.
'P' Ram Ratio
The ratio of the area A1/A2 of each side of the main Lift cylinder piston.
The default value of 1.3000 is OK initially, for almost all makes and models
of machine. You can determine the correct ram ratio by the following
method. Do a slow lift and then a fast lift. If the weight readings are the
same, the Ram Ratio is correct. If the fast lift reading is greater then reduce
the ram ratio, and vice versa.

(i)
(ii)
To establish the Self-levelling Compensation setting (%), proceed as
follows,
Do the normal "auto" calibration routine.
Now check the self-levelling compensation as follows,
With the lift attachment removed and the carriage crowded back, lift
through the weighing point several times (allowing the self-levelling to
operate) and note the average weight reading.
With the carriage crowded back, again lift through the weighing point
several times to get an average weight reading, but this time holding the
crowd lever fully back to override the self-levelling function (pressurizing
the compensation hydraulic circuit).
(iii)
3
If the second (crowded) average weight reading is LESS than the first
(self-levelling) average weight reading, then INCREASE the % setting
slightly, and vice versa.
Repeat step (ii) until the crowded and self-levelling readings are as similar
as possible. 1- 2% difference (or +/- 10 kg on a small loader) should be
possible.
Repeat the normal "Auto" calibration routine as per the calibration manual.
The system is now calibrated.

Time
NOTE 1: If using the traditional, time-based speed compensation weighing,
the 'Dynamic Bounce Filter' setting should be set to 100%.
NOTE 2: The 'Corr %' readout on the diagnostics screen indicates the % of
weight sampling points that are being corrected, as a result of the 'Dynamic
Bounce Filter' setting. This figure should be about 20% with normal loading
activity.
If the 'Corr' %' is much higher than 20%, the 'Dynamic Bounce Filter' setting
should be increased (smaller shaded areas = less correction) and vice
versa.
'Bounce Limit'

Sets the threshold above and below the bucket weight, at which the Bounce
Alarm activates, and weighing is inhibited.
A larger value produces a less sensitive Surge Inhibit Alarm.

'Nudge' - Adjusting Weight Calibration
After performing the initial weight calibration and loading a few trucks, you may find that the load readings
from the instrument are consistently different from weighbridge (weighscale) readings. This situation can also
occur after maintenance or repair to the loading shovel e.g. changing a bucket.
Also, use the 'Nudge' function to adjust the weight calibration factors for individual attachments, where the
initial factors were set using the 'COPYCAL' function.
Adjustment by Weight
1
The Nudge function is switched on by default. If
switched off, switch on from the 'Sensor and Sampling
Setup' menu.
Load a truck and note the weighbridge total against the
instrument total for that load, e.g.
Instrument reading ('Measured')
Scale reading ('Actual'):
23.96 tonnes
24.78 tonnes

Calibration Factors
The detailed calibration factors resulting from the Autocal routines for Weight calibration, Inclinometer
calibration, and Slope calibration, are viewed as follows.
'Calibration'
'Select Attachment '
UK720-43.JPG
For ease of setup, the 'COPYCAL' function on the above page, maybe used to copy the calibration factors of a
calibrated attachment to other attachments.
Subsequent values may be manually adjusted for individual attachments, without recourse to the full Autocal
routine. With notes as follows,
Dynamic / Static Cal Factors
'Cal Factor'
The Weight Calibration Factor dimension is kg / % Pressure.
Example:
For a 250 bar pressure sensor, 1% pressure = 2.5bar. With a cal factor of
150, an increase in pressure of 2.5 bar will equate to a weight measurement of
150kg. An increase of 10 bar would equate to 1500kg.
'Cal Zero Pressure'
Applicable for Trade-approved Weighing Systems (MID)
The pressure recorded for the zero weight setting during calibration.
'Switch-On Zero' Offset'
Applicable for Trade-approved Weighing Systems (MID)
The change in the zero point from the zero point established during initial
calibration ('Cal Zero Pressure').
"Switch-on Zero Offset" is updated each time you zero the bucket weight (the
'ZERO SYSTEM >0.00<' routine) after switching the instrument on.
It indicates how much the zero has drifted and if re-calibration may be
necessary. If the change exceeds ±10% of the 'Cal Zero Pressure' figure,
weighing will be inhibited.
(ref. section 2.3 - Operation manual)
'In-Use Zero Offset'
Applicable for Trade-approved Weighing Systems (MID)
The change in the zero point from the zero point established each time the
instrument is switched on ("Switch-on Zero Offset").
'In-Use Zero Offset' is updated each time you zero the bucket weight during
daily operation (the ZERO SYSTEM >0.00<' routine). It indicates how much
the zero has drifted and if re-calibration may be necessary.
If the change exceeds ±2% of the 'Switch-On Zero Offset' figure, an alarm will
activate, with the message "???????".
(ref. section 2.3 - Operation manual)
25
LOADMASTER ALPHA 100 CALIBRATION
Speed Compensation
Applicable if the Speed Compensation Mode is pressure-based ref. (section 2.7)
'Empty Load Speed
Correction'
Result of Step 2b of the Weight calibration routine (3.2).
The correction for the change in lift speed with an empty bucket.
If a fast lift gives a lower weight reading than the slow lift, the figure should be
decreased (%). And vice versa.
'Full Load Speed
Correction'
Result of Step 6 of the Weight calibration routine (3.2).
As above, for a full bucket.
NOTE: If greater than 500%, then change to Time-based Speed Compensation,
and redo the Autocal routine.
'FLSLP'
(Full Load Slow Lift Pressure) An additional correction to the 'Full Load
Speed Correction' factor above.
Do not change unless advised.
'ELSLP'
(Empty Load Slow Lift Pressure) An additional correction to the 'Empty Load
Speed Correction' factor above.
Do not change unless advised.
Applicable if the Speed Compensation Mode is time-based ref. (section 2.7)
'Curve Factor'
A compensation factor for the change in lift speed.
NOTE: This is normally a -ve value.
If a fast lift gives a lower weight reading than the slow lift, then the figure
should be decreased, and always –ve e.g. changing –11.0 to –10.0.
'Offset Factor'
Also a compensation factor for the change in lift speed.
Proportional Factor
The reduction in speed compensation for an empty bucket compared to a full
bucket. Sometimes after an "Autocal" calibration, it is found that the speed
correction with a full bucket is OK, but with an empty bucket there is a larger
error.
If with an empty bucket, the weight reading is lower at a slower lift speed than
at a fast speed, then reduce the factor by 2 - 3% until the error is removed.
'Fast Speed'
These are the alarm thresholds (seconds) set by the Autocal Weight
calibration routine, at an alarm will activate with the message "Lift too Slow",
or "Lift too Fast".
'Slow Speed'
Increase or decrease the times as necessary to allow a sensible margin
between them, so that the alarm will not activate unduly often.
Applicable if the Speed Compensation Mode is time-based ref. (section 2.7)

Empty / Full Load Pressure Maps
The weight calibration routine calibrates the lift at 20 points through the full lift range, for the empty bucket
(points 'Z0' to 'Z19') and the full bucket (points 'F0' to 'F19').
Each point value is in effect a correction factor that is applied to the Weight Calibration Factor. This enables
accurate weighing at any boom position within the calibrated lifting range.

Edit Points
It may be necessary to manually edit either load map,
if for example, the graph resulting from the Autocal
routine displays an irregularity. This may occur if for
some reason, the lift was not smooth enough.
Example;
To edit the load map, use the arrow buttons to select
the point along the graph (Z9), and then adjust the
point value until the graph is smoothed out.
Repeat for other points as necessary (Z10).

Linear Compensation
NOTE:
Linear compensation applies to all weighing modes
Correction
factor
Displayed
Weight
Normally there is a linear relationship in the calculation
of weight from the sensor frequency signal (Hz).
However, on certain machines, and/or with wet, sticky
materials, the relationship can become non-linear
above a certain weight threshhold.
If it is found that the weighing accuracy gets
progressively worse above a certain weight, then you
can enter a correction factor to compensate for the
error.
It is a process of trial and error to establish a suitable
factor (+/- %).
Sensor Frequency signal
'Correction' – Correction applied between 'Wf' and 'Wt'
on graph.
'Weight from' (“Wf” on graph) and 'Weight to' (“Wt” on
