Smartload Demo

SmartLoad
GMS automatically runs one draft of the next car and waits for the operator. This can save up to 20 seconds per rail car or 36 minutes per unit train

Super SmartLoad Demo

Super SmartLoad
GMS automatically runs two drafts of the next car and waits for the operator.
This can save up to 50 seconds per rail car or 90 minutes per unit train

Railcar Tag Reader System

Railcar Tag Reader SystemAutomatic reading of rail car RF tags

SmartRead II provides the following benefits:

  • Maximizes profits by loading cars to legal maximum
  • Eliminates walking the track for rail numbers & weights
  • Eliminates work & errors of entering info into computer
  • Wheel sensor system alerts for cars with missing tags
  • Choice of wavelengths to avoid interference
  • Adjustable signal strength to ensure accurate reading
  • Highly visible signal lights for trouble shooting
  • Can add extra antenna for bi-directional loading

What's the problem?

  • You are throwing money away if you rely on the load limits stenciled on the side of rail cars
  • It's time consuming, error prone and potentially dangerous to have staff 'walk the track' to write down car numbers and load limits, and then to type this information into the scale controller.
    The solution is SmartRead II from CompuWeigh

Initial Setup

Every facility is a little different so we will provide you with a layout drawing explaining where the antenna, wheel sensor and SmartRead II should be located.

We will also show you how to install the wheel sensors and the numerous options for mounting the antenna and SmartRead II box.

If you load from both directions, or are using two tracks we will supply you with a second antenna and an RF switch so the correct antenna is reading the cars.

SmartCar Database

The North American RF tag system was developed by Rail Companies for their benefit only. Important information like the Tare and Load limit of the car are not on the tag. For this reason we provide the SmartCar database that contains rail cars in North America. It also has the cubic capacity of each car so that we can optimize the amount that is loaded into a car to allow for light materials that would overfill the car long before the load limit was reached. Twice a year we update our customers with a new database.
