The Challenges

Delphi Measurement had designed and built an in-house solution for the shipping container industry that ran on an embedded device with a small LCD screen and a small attached thermal printer which produced a printed slip showing the weight under load.

Delphi wanted to build a new, up-to-date product that could produce and email Adobe PDF certificates and email them at will to the customer.

The whole solution needed to operate wirelessly, reliably and rapidly to ensure heavy loads of up to 500 ton (or more) could be weighed and a Verified Goods Mass certificate produced.
Operate on rugged devices
Touchscreen operated
Handle different load types
Weigh loads in almost real time

The Solution

Over the course of ten months and multiple installations, Delphi Measurement was able to shape and mould the final solution that matches the exact needs of customers.

Beginning from a simple one page application concept, the final solution resulted in over forty-five user interface screens, multiple permission levels of access, a full formula editor, customised dashboard screens, a secondary administration console application and connectivity to multiple types of protocols to mix and max load cell weighing devices.

The solution is fully cloud connected that syncs multiple devices on different platforms (i.e. Windows UWP, iOS and Android), yet operates off-line for underground (i.e. mining) as well as remote locations.

All data synchronises at sub-second speed, is touch screen and fully backed up transparently in case of disaster.

Industries utilising this solution are varied and include mining, shipping, shiplifting and more.
