How IOBridge.Net works:
IOBridge.Net supports 2 ways of operation. Operator Based solution & Unattended /
Unmanned Solution. Below is a full description and walk through for both solutions.
Operator Based Solution:
On this type of operation, the weighbridge operator has a full access to all
IOBridge.Net Parts and is the main responsible person on system operation.
IObridge.Net supports either One Way or Two Way weighing procedure Modes.
One way weighing Procedure mode:
On this mode, operator has already configured all Vehicle Information like plate
number, Driver Name, Tare & other Vehicle related Data.
Page 7
USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
He also needs to prepare all necessary data about the Materials which the Vehicles will
carry.
Page 8
USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
After that, he is able to pick the Vehicle & Material for this Weighing, get the Current
weight & print the Weighing note as system will select automatically all info about Vehicle &
its tare & will calculate the current weigh.
By using Vehicle mount RFID Tags, IOBridge.Net will automatically get all Vehicle
Info, speeding up the current process.
Two way weighing Procedure mode:
On this mode, you can use IOBridge.Net as all classic Weighbridge Systems. Vehicles
enter the Weighbridge & you follow the procedure described above for the first weighing so as
to get their Tare. On the Pending 2nd Weighing Table a new record is added.
Page 9
USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
After the Vehicle is loaded, it gets back to the Weighbridge for the second Weighing.
Operator can easily pick the 1st Weighing Data from the pending weighing table & click the
button so as to get the 2nd weighing weight & Print the Weighing Note.
In case of Vehicle mount RFID Usage, IOBridge.Net can automatically call this procedure &
Print the Weighing Note.
IOlabs can provide a huge variety of Weighing Notes, or customer can ask the one he
may prefer & our Support Team can easily customize it for him.

USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
Unattended Solution:
IOBridge.Net supports any type of Semi-Automatic or full automatic processes based
on sensors & Indicators that can easily be configured on the System Settings. Any combination
of Sensors & Indicators described below can be easily configured on IOBridge.Net and
transform your system to a full automatic system.
Vehicle Arrival / Departure Sensors:
These sensors are used to recognize Arriving or Departing Vehicles from the
Weighbridge. System can manage their signals to as to determine the traffic in/ out the
weighbridge.
Traffic lights / Traffic Barriers:
After Sensors send a call to IOBridge.Net, system will proceed on Indicating by Traffic
lights or barriers to prepare the vehicle driver enter or leave the weighbridge.

USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
Vehicle mount RFID:
After Sensors send a call to IOBridge.Net, system will activate the RFID Read, so as to
get the Vehicle ID & load all necessary info about the Vehicle.
RFID Cards:
IOBridge.Net also supports RFID Cards. In this case Vehicle driver needs to get of the
Vehicle and pass the card in front of the RFID Reader.
Weighbridge mount touch Screens / Weighbridge mount buttons:
Page 12
USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
Used in combination with RFID Cards, Vehicle driver using a touch screen or buttons
can enter into the system the load Details like material type etc.
Remote control External calls to IOBridge.Net:
Remote controls can also be used so as to enter predefined commands to IOBridge.Net like
Start / Stop Weighing procedure & select Material Info.
CCTV & Camera based controls:
IOBridge.Net can also use Cameras for Vehicle management automatically and in combination
with all previous components.

the IOBridge.Net Rights of Use having each one or he can delete a User Code.
This regards the backbone of IOBridge.Net Security System and access to these Settings
only by the man Responsible for IOBridge.Net Operation. In this way maximum security and the
correct automation system operation is achieved. It is well known that an error setting to the
main IOBridge.Net settings can cause undesirable Problems to its Operation.
Weighbridge Calibration.
Page 15
USER MANUAL
IOBridge.Net
In order the operator of System to enters in Weighbridge Calibrator he will be supposed
to put the suitable code access that is fixed by the Technician.
The Operator has the possibility to transport from the central window of application to
the Scales Calibrator making right click under any Weighbridge.
After he imports the code access he is transported in the following picture and he has
the possibility to make the following Settings:
Choice of Scale: User Selects the Weighbridge is about to make the Calibration.
Value 1: Indication in Volts is appeared saved when used saves the Weight 1.
Weight 1: User Selects the Weight matches to the Value 1.
Address ΙΟ: Is the Analog Port to which the Weighbridge to the Controller is connected.
Current Value: Indication in Volt having the Weighbridge at that Time.
Value 2: Indication in Volts is appeared saved when used saves the Weight 2.
Weight 2: User Selects the Weight matches to the Indication 2.
Steps for a Scale Calibration
1. Select the Weighbridge you wish to Calibrate.
2. Discharge the Weighbridge.
Page 16
USER MANUAL

3. Make sure that context Weight has zero (0) value
4. Press the button Save as Weight 1
5. Put to Weighbridge a Model Weight (ex: 200kgr)
6. Type the right Weight to the context Weight (ex:200kgr)
7. Press the button Save as Weight 2
That’s it!! Weighbridge Calibration has Successfully Completed.
System Maintenance / Backup Restore.
The Administrator of the System through the General Options has the possibility of
