Loadrite Communication Interface (LCI)


LCI Information

The LOADRITE™ Communication Interface (LCI) is a monitoring application with control functionality for Loadrite conveyor belt weighing systems. It is a collection point for weighing data from multiple conveyor belt scales throughout a plant. Weighing and operating data including flow rate, total weight and conveyor belt running status are displayed. The operator can view the current production or review the production of up to 24 hours. In addition, the operator can also clear and zero all connected LOADRITE™ belt scales remotely and enter downtime reasons.

The LCI works seamlessly together with the LOADRITE™ INSIGHT reporting software to form a tailor-made solution.
