Abstract

Accurate weight measurement systems are crucial in markets ranging from manufacturing to agriculture and retail. Nearly every sector of modern industry relies on precise instrumentation for determining product weight. Modern weighing modules rely on load cells which are inherently prone to error over time and can never be made perfectly accurate. Frequent calibration is necessary to maintain scale accuracy, but calibration is costly and time consuming. To reduce scale failure rates and improve accuracy, the RemoDi scale system implements a Remote Diagnostic approach that analytically tracks scale loading data in real time and distributes it to a web-based platform. Multiple load cells are simultaneously measured and compared such that the nearest-true value of measured weight can be mathematically determined with extreme precision. The resulting system prevents scale failure by alerting the user when load cells begin to fall out of calibration and allows scale interface from any computer, without removing the scale from the production line. Weighing systems with RemoDi remain in use longer between calibrations and maintain higher accuracy than other systems.
