WinVRS TOUCH offers all the same great features as WinVRS, but comes with larger fonts and buttons for convenient touchscreen navigation. When a user enters into any WinVRS window with input prompts, an on-screen keyboard appears. Pressing the “Symbols” button brings up additional keyboard options.
WinVRS-LT Vehicle Recording Software will add efficiency to your truck scale operation at an economical price. WinVRS-LT’s easy-to-use Windows®-based system allows for multiple operators and is versatile enough to provide detailed reports on vehicles and materials weighed.
WinVRS-LT is the culmination of over 50 years of Cardinal truck scale industry knowledge and programming expertise combined to create an economical software package that gives you control over your truck scale operation. From the simple to use start up menu, navigate directly to the transaction screen by pressing just one key. Simply enter or select the vehicle ID and WinVRS-LT will immediately recall the information stored for that particular vehicle.
Each vehicle can be associated with a unique account, material, and one user-defined ID field for extended control. Multiple materials and accounts can be assigned on the fly or designated for manager control.
During any of the operations, the operator can have immediate assistance by pressing the F1 key to receive a detailed help guide to answer specific questions.
Editing vehicle information is easy. Either from the transaction screen or the menu, select the vehicle to edit or create a new one. Any of these features can be under specific manager password control.
For applications that require networking, unattended operations, accounting software interfaces, or custom applications, Cardinal offers WinVRS, the ultimate Vehicle Recording System.
Cardinal's WinDDE 2.0 Server communicates with up to 20 weight indicators attached to a computer. Weight indicators may be connected using standard computer serial ports or via ethernet using TCP/IP. The weight and status of the weight indicators is made available to spreadsheets, databases, and industrial control applications by means of Dynamic Data Exchange, or NetDDE for networked computers.
Microsoft Excel®, Microsoft Access®, Wonderware InTouch®, Automation Direct®, Lookout Direct®, and Rockwell Automation RSView® are just a few of the well-known applications which can be used with WinDDE.
Weight and time stamp information may be automatically captured to Excel® creating a new row of information for each stable weight above threshold. Alternatively, the capture feature may be based on the indicator print button to capture a row of data each time the print key is pressed on the indicator.
iCan and iSite
ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
Cardinal's iCan system provides a digitally-controlled, high-performance weighing and diagnostic environment for your scale where every step from installation to operation to maintenance is not only simplified, but closely monitored by the latest ISP flash micro-controller-based circuitry and reported using advanced internationally standardized CAN serial bus. What this means is the cost of ownership for your scale just got smaller since system faults are automatically detected and reported, resulting in less downtime and fewer service calls.
DIAGNOSTIC DISPLAY IN THE BOX
The iCan diagnostic display provides a scale-side weight indicator where the scale technician is working thus saving them time going back and forth to the indicator which saves you service call money. The on-board display provides a 6-digit display of load cell millivolt output, weight, and total scale weight while a single character identifies the load cell source. The iCan system controller module is housed in a IP66/NEMA 4X junction box and is connected to the 788 indicator with transient-free plastic fiber optic cable, twisted-pair copper wire, or optional glass fiber optic cable.
CARDINAL'S 788 PROGRAMMABLE INDICATOR
The 788 indicator provides on-screen viewing of individual load cell report data, ensuring quick and concise information on your scale's performance. Cardinal's patented SmartCal® feature allows quick single-pass calibration without the need for manual adjustments. iCan's diagnostic software automatically identifies and reports potential problems before they can interrupt your weighing operations.
REMOTE MONITORING OF SCALE PERFORMANCE
Cardinal's iSite software and hardware facilitates electronic communications from dealer or support locations to iCan scale sites. The communications can be performed via network TCP/IP connections, direct serial port connections, or dial-up modem connections.
Status reports may be electronically requested from each iCan site at any time. These reports include weight information and millivolt readings for each load cell of each scale. An automatic request feature may be used to obtain new status reports from a site automatically at a specified interval.
Gravitation can constantly monitor the status of your weighbridge from our own offices, saving the customer costly call out charges!
iSite software automatically updates a summary report for each site as individual reports are requested. The summary report for a site provides quick comparison of load cell readings over the history of the site, and may be opened with Excel® to allow further analysis or graphing of the data.
IP66/NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure provides rugged, corrosion-proof protection.
• Real-time load cell diagnostics identifies load cell problems before they cause inaccurate weighing, so scale downtime is minimized.
• Troubleshoot directly from the indicator with Cardinal's model 788, giving real time operator notification of potential problems, including zero drift, instability, and load cell failure.
• On-board diagnostic displays (7-segment display with 14 LEDs) in the iCan provide load cell and diagnostic data right in the junction box, displaying current values where your scale technician is working.
• Cardinal's patented SmartCal® allows quick calibration with no manual adjustments, so there is less handling of test weights which saves time and money. Trim and calibrate scales in one pass.
• The CAN bus multi-drop interface overcomes the limitations of daisy-chaining where if you lose one connection, you lose them all. The iCan system can handle up
to 32 load cells divided among up to 8 scales.
• CAN bus connectivity - Separate fiber optic or copper wire transceivers.
• Individual cell interface cards.
• Ethernet interface from Cardinal's 788 indicator allows networking capabilities.
• Transient noise isolation by fiber optic connection between the indicator and junction box.
