Data manage your forklift scales

12 December 2012

An automated data management system for forklift scales aims to boost efficiency.

Avery Weigh-Tronix has introduced automated data management system for forklift truck scales for ISO 9002 or ISO 14000. 

Using an optional Wi-Fi link, data from the forklift scale transfers to a back office system in real time.

Chris McAllister, product manager for Avery Weigh-Tronix says: "Many people understand the advantages of using a forklift scale to lift, weigh and move loads in one operation. To improve efficiency and to provide a traceable audit trail, an organisation must improve the way the data is captured, recorded and then used.

"Our system can capture, store and transfer the information to a back office system automatically." Available with the Avery Weigh-Tronix forklift truck scale, the FLI 425 in-cab indicator has a windows CE.NET platform and a 7" touch screen colour LCD display. It offers four data capture options, a standard configuration, a counting application, checkweighing or a data manager solution. All four options can be accessed via the touch screen menu.

After collecting and recording weight and other data, the FL 425 can transfer it in several ways: by serial ports, using a USB memory stick, by Ethernet, using a Wi-Fi link or via Bluetooth.

The system will store up to 2000 transactions.
