Remotely Access and Monitor Your Rice Lake Scale Systems with Web Servers
The ability to remotely access your scale system is becoming increasingly popular, as operators need to access scale functions without physically accessing the weight indicator now more than ever. The process to connect a local indicator to a secondary (remote) indicator to monitor the scale from a second location was once complex and included adding a second weight indicator, essentially creating a scale with two digital weight indicators. Today, however, built-in web servers in Rice Lake’s digital weight indicators have made it easier than ever to remotely access and monitor weighing operations.
Benefits of Remotely Accessing Scale Systems
The main benefits of remote scale access include viewing weigh data from a distance and performing some functions without physical access to the local indicator.
Operators can monitor process status and managers can review operations from their offices or other locations. This is especially useful when there are weighing functions happening in multiple locations that need to be supervised by the same operator or manager. With scale web servers, the operator can control functions at multiple weighing workstations and managers have oversight of total weighing activities throughout the facility.
Additionally, your local scale technicians are able to perform remote calibrations and can troubleshoot scales, simplifying routine scale maintenance and emergency repair processes.
