Ray’s Auto Salvage, in operation for more than 35 years, buys and processes scrap metal for recycling and reuse. After deciding to install a used truck scale to determine the weight—and therefore cost—of the metals purchased, co-owner Laura Yesul and her associates asked Advance Scale, headquartered in Lindenwold, New Jersey, for an up-to-date indicator.
Joe Carr, service manager at Advance Scale, recommended the Evolution E1110 indicator by Avery Weigh-Tronix, used in conjunction with the XR Series Remote Display, to control traffic at the scale. Since putting the system to use last October, Ray’s has found ample opportunity to corner its market in Dennisville, New Jersey—and the surrounding county.
“It’s nuts around here,” Laura Yesul said with a chuckle. “It’s never quiet.”
Trucks carrying scrap and precious metals to Ray’s Auto Salvage for purchase and processing are constantly going in and out of their new weigh station. With a busy schedule that makes many weekdays feel like Mondays, Yesul said she finds the E1110 an invaluable resource for her business’ success.
“We love it—it’s the greatest thing we’ve done so far,” Yesul said about installing the E1110 and XR Series Remote Display. “The customers love it to death.”
The E1110 indicator is a multi-application configurable indicator and process controller. It simplifies the weighing process by offering a dependable and cost-effective weighing solution while the XR Series Remote Display provides large, bright LED digits for enhanced readability of scale information indoors or outdoors, even in direct sunlight. Customers can quickly and easily determine the weight of loads being transported with these quality products by Avery Weigh-Tronix
“The E1110 controls the XR Series Remote Display built-in red/green traffic light with no extra modifications or labor costs,” Joe Carr said. “It’s an easy, out-of-the-box solution. The E1110 makes daily processing of weights more efficient while still offering a more reasonable cost than its competitors.”
Chris Santarpio, general manager at Advance Scale, agreed that the E1110 indicator was an ideal choice for controlling the traffic at Ray’s Auto Salvage’s scale.
“We suggested the E1110 because it has relays already built into the product,” Santarpio said. “For a programmable indicator, it was the best choice for price, time to set up and ease of use for the customer.”
Offering built-in applications and flexibility without requiring custom software for operation, the E1110 is an economical solution. It stores up to ten recipes, each with up to 50 programmable steps, and it indicates when target weights are within taught limits with a flashing Target light. The indicator also offers an alarm mode with 20 independent cutoffs and records both total weight and the weight of each individual product in a package.
The standard E1110 features dual RS232 serial ports to enable a connection to printers, laptops, or in the case of Ray’s Auto Salvage, remote displays such as the XR Series by Avery Weigh-Tronix. Localized process control is possible with an included Ethernet port, along with three relay outputs and three logic level inputs (expandable to 8 I/O utilizing the optional TIU8). In addition, the E1110 is available with an optional Fieldbus card for industrial networks.
The indicator also offers a wide variety of specialized weighing applications. Along with general weighing applications, the E1110 also offers checkweighing, counting, in-motion weighing, peak weight capture, batching and filling applications, and a full suite of truck scale applications. Its stainless steel enclosure also makes the E1110 suitable for washdown.
The E1110 pairs quality with convenience while offering a lower price than the competition—representing ideal value in configurable weighing instrumentation and control technology. In conjunction with the XR Series Remote Display, which features intuitive Auto-Learn Technology, the E1110 simplifies Ray’s Auto Salvage’s weighing operations while providing reliable and efficient results.
“It’s a simple, out-of-the-box solution, yet it’s robust to offer advanced features,” Santarpio said.
At Ray’s Auto Salvage, this means more time to focus on customers—and the busy environment they create.
“Avery Weigh-Tronix’s models are up-to-date and easy to run,” Yesul said. “And they’re really maintenance-free. With tractor trailers in and out of here all the time, it’s still as accurate as can be.”
The weighing process is more efficient with the E1110 as it displays dynamic status information throughout the weighing operation and is programmable for a specific target count and high/low limits. Both the E1110 and XR Series Remote Display are easy to read—something both Yesul and her customers appreciate.
“You can just watch the monitor–you don’t have to watch scale,” Yesul explained.
In addition, the E1110 offers the option to detect products entering and leaving a weigh station. Yesul said that in order to ensure a vehicle has come to a complete stop before weighing, the E1110 at Ray’s Auto Salvage is programmed to indicate exactly when that measurement can be taken.
“When it’s busy and hectic, you just watch for that signal,” Yesul said. “You can hit down the weight, push the button so that the light turns green, and off they go.”
The E1110 offers unparalleled value and accuracy. When combined with the XR Series Remote Display, for Ray’s Auto Salvage, it also stands as one of the best business decisions Yesul and her associates have ever made.
“It makes my life a heck of a lot easier,” Yesul said.
