Control Equipment:

The scale is controlled by our top of the line GMS-4000 controller including:

  • SmartTech that automatically monitors the scale for correct operation
  • SmartRead that automatically reads the rail cars and calculates the optimum amount to load into each car.   This information then feeds into the SmartCar database to calculate the optimum amount to load into each car so the that the loadlimit is not exceeded or the car physically runs out of space on light materials.
  • Super SmartLoad that ensures that while the next car is moved into position the scale can start working on that car by filling the lower garner and the weigh hopper with two drafts, saving around 45 seconds a car.
