WeightLink™ is an innovative weight verification system for balance testing, which provides fool-proof identification and traceability of the test weights used.
Greifensee, Switzerland (PRWEB) October 03, 2016
Weights are the most important and most frequently used test equipment for the testing of balances. A correct testing procedure relies on the accuracy of weights and the correctness of the values in the weight's calibration certificate. Although a great deal of time and effort is invested in order to avoid mistakes, it is never possible to completely exclude errors whilst human interventions are still required in the balance testing procedure. However, the innovative WeightLink™ functionality can eliminate the risk of human-related errors, giving confidence and peace of mind for the process of adjustment and testing of balances.
The new White Paper from METTLER TOLEDO, "Secure Traceability in Balance Testing – With Verified Weight Identification", explains how data entry errors and weight mix-ups can be avoided. What is the result? No more mistakes in manual data entry and no chance of testing with the wrong weight. The outcome is improved productivity, enhanced security, and assured, proven traceability.
The security and compliance of balance testing can be assured by using WeightLink™. WeightLink™ is an innovative weight verification system for balance testing, which provides fool-proof identification and traceability of the test weights used. It consists of test weights, a data matrix code (DMC) scanner, and balance firmware to read the information. This innovative approach makes it possible to use validated test weights with unique identification. Input of weight serial numbers and data from calibration certificates can be achieved electronically by scanning 2D matrix codes to enable automated data transfer and balance configuration of weight specific data. Most importantly, the verification that the weight matches the allocated data is automatically carried out by WeightLink™. By employing this approach, laboratories can regain the flexibility to use a single weight set for testing across multiple balances of the same weighing range without risk of mix-ups, with a significantly increased level of security in the process.
This white paper will be of interest to anyone responsible for testing and maintenance of weighing equipment in industries where strictly regulated conditions prevail, such as the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical and food industries, and anyone who is highly concerned with the recording of process data.
