Many industries use scales to keep track of inventory, weigh important mixing materials, and more. In some operations, placing an item on the scale, logging its weight, and removing it is good enough. Other situations require a container being placed on a scale indefinitely to monitor changes in the weight of its contents. In these situations, an automatic alert at certain weights can make a big difference in how smoothly your business operates. With the Arlyn UpScale Indicator, you can use your scale’s Setpoint Controller to send you an email at specified weights.
The Arlyn UpScale Digital Indicator
Available exclusively from Arlyn Scales, the UpScale Indicator is a high-definition color touchscreen indicator designed for use with industrial scales. These indicators are extremely user friendly with an easy-to-read screen, intuitive interface, and a swivel bracket that lets you see the screen from any angle. You can even mount the bracket on a post or wall. The Arlyn UpScale also features Enhanced Setpoint Functions that will email you weight print frames when a target weight is reached.
Email alerts based on weights and setpoints can serve many industries, including those working with gases like helium, manufacturing facilities, and paint mixing operations. An automatic alert emailed at a specified weight can increase safety, let you know when you’re running low on something, or give you a warning if a container is about to reach capacity.
Email Alerts for Target Weights
Enhanced Setpoint Functions are often used to alert users when the contents of a container reach a certain weight. For example, you can configure your scale to send you an email when the weight on the platform is 60lbs. In order to configure the Setpoint Controller to send you email alerts, you need a scale that is equipped with Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
Setpoint emails are easy to set up. All you need to do is enable the Setpoint email function and specify which email address should receive alerts. Then you will need to create a Setpoint Command Line Configuration, enter the value at which an alert should be sent, and select “Yes” for the “Email” option. Finally, on the Setpoint Definition screen, ensure the checkbox for “Email” is checked.
Email Alerts for Low Inventory
Email alerts are typically used for monitoring weights on cylinder scales. If the weight of the cylinder drops below a certain point, you will receive an email. This function can serve other purposes, though. If you use parts counting scales for inventory tracking, email alerts can be extremely useful. By storing parts containers on scales and monitoring their weights, you can be alerted when your inventory gets low. This can help reduce downtime during operations and ensure you always have the parts you need on hand.
