Discontinuation of certain Load Washer Sensors
RJG has discontinued the sale of the following load washer sensor models: 214M10, 215M10, 216M10, and 217M10. We will continue to offer the 211M18, 212M18, 213M10, models. To find out which sensor is right for you, contact Customer Support.

eDART Software v10.4 Released
The 10.4 software now has these added features:

  • The ability to create custom sensor location names
  • You can now view Summary Statistics from the Summary Graph by simply touching a curve to get the specific stats.
  • Improved the way the software works when pressing on a sensor to identify its location. Now you can simply use the feature from one screen without needing to know how to activate it.
For further details or to upgrade contact Curt Otto via email or call 231-947-3111 x151.

RJG gives back during a great year!
At RJG we are so fortunate to have energetic, caring employees that do so much to support our Goodwill Committee. Our committee is busy all year helping to fill needs in our community and helping families deal with many crises. If an employee has a neighbor in need or knows of people in their church, they bring it to the Goodwill Committee. The Committee buys gifts for the aged and works with elementary schools to help low income families. Employees fill the requests that are on our Christmas Tree, which is decorated with items for the needy. And we have a "hat and mitten tree" that employees can decorate it with warm clothing to donate. Committee members and other fellow employees wrap these gifts to get them out for Christmas. Because of you, we are able to give back to our community.
