Newcastle Weighing Services’ IT Division has a range of automated and driver operated weighbridge systems which increase site security, reduce staff involvement and allow access to site 24 hours a day.
Driver Control Stations allow a truck driver to enter the details of a weighbridge transaction without needing to leave their vehicle. Transaction dockets can be either printed on an external weighbridge-mounted printer, or emailed to the vehicle driver, carrier and/or customer.
RFID vehicle recognition systems allow vehicles to be authorised for site entry, and image capture and licence plate recognition systems enhance site security. Where transaction details are fixed for specific vehicles, a transaction can be completed merely by presenting an ID card.
Data entered can be automatically transferred back to an administration facility for backup and reporting and where limited network capabilities exist, data may be transferred via mobile network. Inbuilt authorisation facilities restrict the data a driver may select so that transactions are accurate and limited only to authorised vehicles.
Our unattended weighbridge systems may be integrated with traffic lights, boom gates and sliding gates where required.
