The CompuWeigh™ System supports integration with a number of peripheral devices to automate your scale lane.
A popular unattended terminal includes a thermal receipt printer; color LCD monitor (sunlight readable at 1550 nits), QWERTY Keyboard, Proximity Card Reader and intercom system. The driver will pull onto the scale and the display will state “Waiting for Scan” (or other wording based on your requirements. The driver will wave a proximity card in front of the proximity card reader and the system can prompt for additional information from the driver (if required)). The driver can make the entry on the QWERTY keyboard based on a selection list on the display. Once all additional information has been entered, the system will capture the vehicle weight.
If the vehicle has a stored tare weight, the system will complete the transaction and print the driver a ticket. If the transaction is not completed the driver will be required to return to an outbound scale and complete the transaction either from an unattended terminal or by a scale operator.
The system can also integrate to RFID Readers, gates, lights, photo eyes, external displays, loop detectors, intercom systems, radiation detectors, and more. With our proven solution used throughout North America we have the most integrated solution to meet your needs. The display and QWERTY keyboard can be replaced with a complete touch screen computer.
