Fraud prevention at the touch of a button with new indicator software

Avery Weigh-Tronix has just launched new indicator-based software applications for weighbridges, making it possible to create a highly personalised traffic management solution to improve weighing efficiencies – and even crack down on fraud.

The two applications – Weighbridge Fraud Prevention and Weighbridge Traffic Management – run on the recently launched Avery Weigh-Tronix ZM510 indicator.

The high performance ZM510 not only captures weight data, but its added functionality means it can provide additional control and interaction with the weighbridge operator.

From control of traffic lights, barriers, positioning sensors and remote displays – to calibration reminders, the Weighbridge Traffic Management application provides a bespoke traffic management solution that can help make operations more efficient.

The ZM510 Weighbridge Fraud Prevention feature is another new, bespoke solution to help protect weighbridges from fraudulent activity. Integrated with custom-fitted sensors, the system can verify whether each vehicle has fully entered or exited the weighbridge weighing zone, highlighting potentially fraudulent weighments.

Paul Hines, Innovation Director at Avery Weigh-Tronix, said: “We’re excited to release these new software applications which ultimately make weighbridge operations so much easier for our customers”.

“Fraud in the waste industry is understood to be taking place on a large scale, reportedly costing the tax payer hundreds of millions of pounds a year. We developed the Weighbridge Fraud Protection software to help tackle this increasing issue and protect customers’ profits.

“Our Weighbridge Traffic Management software provides the highest levels of control without the need for an additional PC or PC management software, allowing total control over the weighbridge system via the indicator.

“Coupled with the robust, user-friendly features of the ZM510 such as brushed stainless steel housing, bright green graphical display and a QWERTY keyboard, these new applications allow users to simplify, personalise and optimise their weighbridge systems.”
