Mobile App for Truck Weights and ID Storage Remote Control

June 9, 2014

Cardinal Scale’s Pathway mobile app provides all of the standard truck scale ID storage functions that are normally performed at the weight indicator directly in the palm of your hand with your smart phone. Pathway provides the power of the NTEP 825 Spectrum indicator’s weight display in a mobile device that allows truck drivers the efficiency and safety of remaining in their truck while weighing.

Using S2WIFI or the customer’s wireless network for Wi-Fi connectivity, Pathway provides truck scale operations with unattended weighing for a minimal cost. All transactions are recorded automatically on the legal-for-trade 825 indicator’s onboard memory and may be retrieved later with USB memory stick or by Ethernet. Additionally, these individual transactions may be e-mailed or printed directly through the mobile device at the time of weighing. Pathway places the 825 indicator’s remote keyboard and display in the cab of the truck to operate standard ID storage via Wi-Fi.

Once the truck driver pulls onto the scale, the Pathway mobile app self-prompts through four different customizable IDs such as truck number, product type, customer, job number, etc. These IDs are easily set up through the 825 indicator’s QWERTY keyboard during configuration. Pathway prompts for in-and-out, two-pass weighing with transaction tickets generated for gross, tare, and net, which may be printed and/or e-mailed through Android or Apple mobile device.
