was developed by drawing on more than thirty years of experience in producing
weighbridge software.It runs under Windows 7 Pro or Windows XP Pro and is
exceptional easy to use.The software makes use of Microsoft Access © database,
a standard for industry and one from which data is very simply exported should a
different database be in operation.

The RonWeigh III Weighbridge Fleet Management System is the latest version of the original RonWeigh, designed to make the operation of a modern weighbridge installation as simple and quick as possible. This is achieved by holding on a standard Personal Computer all the information that is in regular use, whether this be about customers, lorries, materials or other categories.

The current version of RonWeigh III, 3.0.1, will run under Windows 7 Pro 64, Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit and Windows XP Pro.

RonWeigh III is operated entirely from the normal PC controls – keyboard and mouse. Anyone used to using Windows will find RonWeigh III very easy to learn and will quickly become proficient in its operation.

The computer holds files with details of Customers, Suppliers, Vehicles, Hauliers and Materials on its hard disk. These may be retrieved instantly by code or by name. Customised versions of RonWeigh III may hold other files in the same way.

Any vehicle, identified by fleet or registration number, may be associated with any or all of the above files. By this means, merely entering the registration number when the lorry arrives at the weighbridge will automatically bring to the screen all the details known about it – for example, the owner, material required, etc. If necessary these details may be changed at the time of weighing.

The first weighing may be of a loaded vehicle (gross weighing), or an empty vehicle (tare weighing). Full details are recorded by the computer into a Transaction file and held ready for recall when the vehicle returns for the second time. When it does, the computer uses its registration or fleet number to find the incomplete record, and adds all the details of the second weighing to complete the Transaction Record.

A major benefit of
RonWeigh III is that the Transaction File is in MS Access format. This means that in addition to the internal reporting system built in to the software, the file may be read using standard Microsoft Access, which many companies already use. Data can readily be exported into Excel, Word, or other utility.

Regular vehicles may have their details and tare weight logged so that they only need to be weighed once each trip, the recorded tare being used to calculate the net weight of material on board.

Public Weighings are handled by a single gross weighing of the loaded lorry, a weigh ticket being produced for the driver. Details of the weighbridge user's products are not included or recorded.

Reports may be printed out by selecting Transactions from the Menu button. The type of report is chosen and then the computer will scan through the Transaction File and print the report in the specified format.

New RF Smart Card Facility

RonWeigh III has the ability to accept data from RF Smart Cards. This feature may be used on both manned and
unmanned weighbridges and in either case it dramatically speeds up weighings and guarantees data integrity.
The operator or driver offers up the card to a reader; no physical contact is necessary — and whether the vehicle is
on its first or second weighing, the rest is fully automatic. The system knows if he has weighed once, finds the
partially completed database record, and completes the details of the second weighing, calculating the net weight.

If the tare weight is stored on the computer, only one visit to the weighbridge is needed.

The standard cards are credit-card size, but for special applications many alternatives are available, some of which
can be read at distances of up to 1 metre from the sensor.

More flexible reporting now comes as standard, with customer, material and vehicle movement reports available
over chosen timescales. But as each transaction record is an Access record, users can, if they wish, write
customised reports to suit their own operations.Rontec will of course provide full customisation facilities for any
requirementsusers may have.

Accounting Packages and Electronic Data Transfer

RonWeigh III has the ability to accept data from RF Smart Cards. This feature may be used on both manned and
can be interfaced with the Sales and Accounts offices to accept orders for fullfilment at the weighbridge
and allowing the option of producing invoices.

RonWeigh III can also be configured to accept orders and send invoices by Electronic Data Transfer (EDT).

We can arrange with a Sage Solution Provider to link RonWeigh III to accounting packages, allowing sales
invoices to be raised based upon the net weight and product cost per tonne to individual customers.

What are the advantages ?

RonWeigh III First of all, simplicity. The screen looks just like a typical Windows application. This means
that the user feels comfortable comfortable from the outset and can get to know the system much more quickly.
All the normal Windows facilities are available and the operator just has to fill in the known details, either by typing,
selecting from a list using the mouse or clicking on a button to call up the weight information. Just fill in the known
details and leave the rest blank if they arecompulsory fields, the system will prompt you to complete them

Secondly, because the data is on your hard disk in MS Access format, you have enormous flexibility.
Without any further formatting, you have at your disposal the full power of the MS Access © database.
What is more, the standard Microsoft © facilities for exporting into say Word or Excel are instantly available.
Logging into an XML Schema is also possible.
