Scale System

On truck and chuteside computers, Fusion can be connected to a scale system (see Physical Computer Management Window). During normal usage, Fusion will automatically connect to and disconnect from the the scale system as needed. It also manages opening the Scale Indicator window and placing it and the rest of the system in the correct mode, whether it be for weighing animals or loading and delivery feed in a truck. However, there may be times when you need to manage the running of the scale system manually. For example, if you are setting up the hardware and need to test it or if you are using Fusion Truck as a dumb scale indicator before transition day.

You can place the scale system in different modes manually by choosing the following options from Fusion Admin → Utilities, Fusion Truck Main Menu → Options, or Fusion Truck Main Menu → Options, depending on where you are working from.
