Cardinal Scale’s 825 Spectrum weight indicator can send automatic e-mail alerts through an Ethernet connection to the
client’s internal SMTP e-mail server for submission to up to three recipients per scale. The 825 features up to 10 scale
inputs per indicator by installing additional option cards to the multiple slots available, and each of the scales connected has completely-individual configurability for the e-mail alerts.
Originally programmed for a company to use with a series of tank scales, this 825 custom application allows users to receive instant notification on stocking levels, such as when it’s time to order refills.
Easy set-up for this application is enabled through the 825’s touchscreen LCD and QWERTY keyboard where users may assign the e-mail address the alerts are sent from, which also acts as a return address (any address may be configured). There are four preset weights available per scale for user-definable targets such as Over, Accept, Under (Reorder), and Extremely Low, which may be labeled whatever the user chooses. E-mail alerts may be assigned for up to three of the presets per scale. For instance, e-mail alerts might be sent for Over, Under (Reorder), and Extremely Low, but not for the unnecessary Accept weight status. Additionally, up to three recipients per scale may receive each e-mail alert via separate e-mail addresses.
The 825 Spectrum’s vivid color display is effectively utilized in this application by assigning any of eight different color options (black, blue, green, red, yellow, white, gray, or cyan) to each of the four preset weight ranges (both the color block and text color are user-definable). All of the scales connected to the 825 may be monitored onscreen simultaneously with easy weight status visually identifiable by their current color mode and preset weight identifier. View up to ten scales onscreen simultaneously with the 640 x 480 pixel color LCD. By touching a scale’s weight onscreen, the indicator will bring up that individual scale’s information and current weight status.
E-mail alerts are sent in the form of text file attachments containing the Date, Time, Scale Number, Commodity, Weight, and its current status when sent. This provides remote weight monitoring anywhere in the world that the user can access
their e-mail. Screenshots shown below.
