The dynamic bin
The key features of the c-trace dynamic weighing process are that it is consistently accurate and it does not slow down the bin lifting operation at all.
- It achieves this by using top quality load cells to weigh the bin as many as 30 times as it is lifted, to produce an accurate gross weight. Then it weighs the empty bin – as many times again – as it is lowered.
- The c-trace software instantly calculates the net weight of the materials collected and attributes this weight to that specific bin.
- This can be determined with total reliability by an RFID tag or simply by the time and location the bin was emptied which is produced via a GPS tracking device in the vehicle.
- It can accurately weigh bins up to 500kg. It does so in increments of 1kg for two-wheeled bins and 5kg increments for four-wheeled bins. The ‘weighing window’ is set up during fitting and calibration.
- Only valid weights can be billed. Sometimes, customers chose to have the data sent to their own in-cab or back-office order management systems.
- Our software team simply agrees an interface protocol with the Order Management System provider so the data flow is, once again, seamless.
