                                 1
What is Unattended Vehicle Weighing?

 A vehicle weighing application
  where the customer wants the
  driver to independently operate
  the scale and complete the
  transaction




                                    2
What is Unattended Vehicle Weighing?

 An unattended installation consists
  of:
    - Software (PC based or embedded)
    - Weighing indicator
    - Operator display
    - Data input devices
         Keyboard
         ID reader (RF, etc.)
         Intercom and Speaker
    - Printer for receipts
    - Traffic Control
         Lights, Gates, Loops
    - Weatherproof enclosure mounted
      next to the scale
         Climate control




                                        3
Why Unattended Vehicle Weighing?

 Customer Objectives for Vehicle
  Weighing
   -   Reduce cost of weighing vehicle
       loads
   -   More efficient use of existing
       operational personnel
   -   Immediate access to weighing data
       for operational analysis, billing, and
       inventory control




                                                4
Why Unattended Vehicle Weighing?

 Benefits of an Unattended Weighing System
    -   Avoid need for weighing attendant – personnel cost reduction
    -   Avoid need for building near the scale – reduce construction and operating
        costs
    -   Improve data accuracy – use preprogrammed information on proximity cards
    -   Faster weighing throughput – transaction is completed without driver leaving
        the cab
    -   24 hour per day operation – greater facility operational flexibility
