WATS™

Overview

WATS™ (Weighbridge Automated Transaction System) is a weighbridge automation system used for unattended or operator-supervised control and recording of weighing information for vehicles and their cargo. The weighing information can be stored in WATS™ own database or it can be configured to write to a third-party database.

WATS™ has the ability to interface to and automate the control of weighbridge indicators (scale instrumentation), traffic lights, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) systems, RFID devices (including contactless smart card, MIFARE, and NFC - Near Field Communication technology), digital imaging cameras, receipt printers, boom barriers and tyre-shredders.

WATS™ stores the weighbridge transaction information to its own or third party SQL database, and comprehensive reports and statements can be generated via our WATS™ web-based reporting system.

Features

  • Reduction of operator error
    • Depending on the type of weighing transaction, little or no operator input is required.
  • Reliable weighing information
    • Using traffic lights and boom barriers controls the flow of vehicles over the weighbridge and ensure vehicles are correctly positioned on the weighbridge.
  • Quick weighing time
    • With the use of contactless smart cards, the vehicle, client and goods being hauled are quickly and accurately identified.
  • Reduce tampering
    • Using cameras, booms barriers and tyre-shredders, ensures that the weighbridge is used correctly and that the vehicle's mass is measured accurately without abuse.
  • Transaction snapshot
    • Using digital cameras, photographic evidence of the weighing transaction and the product/goods being hauled can be automatically taken at the time of the weighing.
  • Data Exchanger
    • WATS™ can be used in conjunction with our Data Exchanger™ allowing for the transmission of transactional information to an off-site database.
  • Web-Reports
    • Our WATS™ web-based reporting solution provides users and customers with access to a variety of reports, invoices and statements as well as the ability to managing vehicles, products and accounts.
