Access-IS barcode readers help take the hassle out of silo loading

Reading, UK, November 2017

 

TMT Solutions has integrated Access-IS LSR116 barcode readers into its specialist TCS Sand application. A solution designed to enable the automated loading of trucks with frac sand from overhead silos.


Designed to tie sales systems to transport and delivery resources, TCS (Total Controls Solutions) improves facility throughput, accountability and provides numerous metrics to aid in reducing running costs and maintenance.

 

When an empty truck approaches the TCS "lane", a ticket is printed at the entrance kiosk, this tells the driver which loading lane to go to in order to receive their assigned product. The driver must then scan the barcoded ticket to gain access past the lift gates and onto the silo scales. Once in position, with guidance from a remote operator, the product drops from the silo.

 

Once loading is complete, the driver leaves the scales and pulls up to an exit kiosk. One final scan of the pick ticket and the driver receives a transaction receipt and is on their way.

 

The use of TSC Sand with Access-IS barcode scanners remove the requirement for multiple manned transaction points, therefore removing potential bottlenecks and substantial cost overheads from the system.

 

The LSR116 device that has been integrated by TMT Solutions is designed to read 2D barcodes from smartphones, tablets and paper. Its unique design with a 2D omnidirectional barcode imager ensures read reliability and high-speed performance, capturing and decoding barcodes in less than one second in any orientation.

 

It has a small-footprint, slot-in design to enable fast, and easy integration into third-party public access kiosks and gates. Furthermore, its rugged, dust and water-resistant construction, with no moving parts, enable it to withstand years of indoor and outdoor public access use.

 

“The Access-IS readers do exactly what we need them to and they do it reliably” said Andrew Ober, Business Development, TMT Solutions Inc. “Our design team love the ease with which they are integrated into our solution, meaning they add real value without requiring development resource”.
