LabGen is a highly configurable labelling and grading system. The system is available in either a standard version or an advanced version. The advanced version adds support for multiple scales and functionality to interface to external equipment via an optional remote serial I/O interface.
The system connects to one scale in the standard version or multiple scales in the advanced version via a standard RS232 serial interface. The system records weighing transactions to a central database and has provision to automatically grade transactions based on weight and automatically print a label after each transaction is saved. The advanced version also provides functionality to grade transactions based on one or more external inputs allowing product classification to based on operator input or input from any device involved in the weighing process.
All weighing transactions are associated with a transaction batch, which nominates the product that is being processed and details for the batch. As each product is weighed the system records transaction details including date, time, weight, unique label ID and up to five grades based on weight or an external grading input (advanced version only). A label can be produced for each item weighed.
The system includes a label design utility allowing an unlimited of labels to be designed and stored within the system database. Default labels can be associated with each scale, each product or assigned at the time a batch is commenced.
The system allows up to 5 user defined grading categories to be associated with weighing transactions. An unlimited number of grades can be specified within each grading category. The system can automatically grade an item based on weight or grade an item based on an input from an external source (advanced version only). In addition to grading at the time of the transaction, grades can be manually edited via the transaction edit facility. Some example configurations include
- Grade Category 1: Size (Based On Weight)
- Grade1: Size 10
- Grade2: Size 12
- Grade3: Size 14
- Grade4: Size 16
- Grade5: Size 18
- Grade6: Size 20
- Grade Category 2: Quality (Based On Input)
- Grade1: Reject
- Grade2: Acceptable
- Grade3: High
- Grade4: Premium
List and Queries
Through out the system fully customisable lists are used to display details of information stored within the central database. User defined views can be added to the system to provide views of data that include user selected fields, customised sort orders, data filtering, data grouping and column summaries (including sum, average, count, minimum value and maximum value). Information contained within views can be exported in Microsoft Excel, CSV, HTML and XML formats.
The security manager allows an unlimited number of fully customisable security profiles to be created and associated with one or more system operators. Access to every form within the system can be controlled and in the case of maintenance forms operators can be restricted to read only access.
