Avery Weigh-Tronix has launched its new automated weighbridge control station AVS-7, which it claims offers more functionality and flexibility as standard than other solutions.
The AVS-7 is an automated control console with an advanced E1310 indicator and thermal printer inside an IP56 enclosure. It is supplied with a standard qwerty keyboard, ID card reader and intercom. The new system has an easy to read display with clear and simple driver prompts.
Says product manager Chris McAllister: "The advantages of fully automated weighbridge access for 24/7 operation, to ensure accurate data capture and to lower costs are well rehearsed. We have introduced this new system to offer customers maximum flexibility from a standard system. Other manufacturers offer many of the features found on our standard unit as optional extras."
The E1310 indicator is an advanced controller that features network capabilities. This allows monitoring and reporting via the web, email and FTP. It can connect to a LAN or WAN via wireless RF.
Typically the AVS-7 would be installed as part of a complete unattended vehicle weighing solution. It acts as the interface between the truck driver and the weighbridge system.
Other possible components of an unmanned weighbridge solution might include a vehicle detection loop, barrier gates, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras, traffic lights, a remote display and the company’s MI Payload PC software package for complete data management.
