Application for Web-IO Analog-In:
Sending measurement values from a truck scale over the network
Definition of tasks
The weights of a truck scale for a transport company need to be saved to the internal FTP server for archiving and verification. There is an available network port to the house network of the company.
The Web-IO Analog-In can be connected directly to the 0...20mA output of the scale. The FTP server is already in place. The device uses an entered limit value to recognize that there is a truck on the scale and sends the weight to the server.
1. The scale was connected directly to the 0...20mA port on the Web-IO Analog-In.
2. The Web-IO Analog-In was connected to an available Ethernet port and provided with power.
3. An IP address was assigned to the Web-IO Analog-In.
4. The browser was used to configure a limit value which represents the trigger for an arriving truck. After configuring the FTP parameters the application is ready to use.
