    Overview:
    Rail ScaleTM is a software system for use in managing the collection of railcar weights. It can link to a variety of scale controllers to automatically capture the scale weight. The system utilizes an AEI reader to automatically capture the car number, and interfaces to UMLER or a locally-available database to obtain tare weight for calculating net, and to obtain max gross weight to identify overloads.

    Rail ScaleTM provides simple instructions to the scale operator and can be configured to provide special instructions for exception handling. Output can be provided in several formats and can be configured to send weigh data directly to Rail Manager, to serving railroads or to common or proprietary customer systems.
