Shawnee Mission, KS December 11, 2008: The Bulk Materials division of Command Alkon, a global leader in integrated solutions for the construction materials industry, is pleased to announce the release of its new Scale Watcher II product for the aggregate, cement, and asphalt industries. Scale Watcher II is the next generation of hardware and software to provide photo verification of a truck™s weighing process.
Scale Watcher II is an integrated photo verification tool that overlays ticket information onto a photo of a truck on the scale. This image is then saved in a PDF, HTML or other image friendly format by ticket number. The ticket number provides easy retrieval of image to email to customers. Scale Watcher II provides you and your customers proof of vehicle pickup without signatures.
The new optional Gate/Valve anti-theft module alerts authorized personnel of potential theft of materials. The anti-theft module sends an e-mail alert to one or more designated addresses whenever the gate/valve is opened and closed on a loading system and a ticket is not printed. The Gate/Valve anti-theft module is not reliant upon the scale or software to function and will work after hours when a plant is shut down. Our new Scale Sensing feature will send an alert if: A truck has left the scale but no ticket was generated; The tare weight is above the set threshold; The gross weight from the scale does not match that printed on the ticket; The weight on the scale exceeds the truck GVW; Or the ticketing system loses connection with the scale indicator.
