New VEI Loader Scales Offer a Better Look at More Data

Montreal, QC – VEI Loader Scales, represented in North America by RMT Equipment, has introduced new versions of two of the firm’s most popular models, each updated with enhanced displays and data capabilities.

The Helper X is the new top-of-the-line loader scale from VEI, providing today’s most advanced data management capabilities for in-motion weighing. The Millennium 5 model offers a lower cost version with the same weighing accuracy, ease of data entry, easy readout screens and should it be needed, an easy upgrade path to convert it to a Helper X.

The new Millennium 5 and Helper X loader scales from VEI share a new high-resolution display and faster weight capture system, while offering flexible data management software to suit different business needs.

The new Millennium 5 and Helper X loader scales from VEI share a new high-resolution display and faster weight capture system, while offering flexible data management software to suit different business needs.

Both systems are equipped with new high-definition color displays, automatic brightness control and high visibility in any light conditions. The easy-to-read information is now presented in a more compact layout, allowing the displays to fit a smaller footprint in the cab.

VEI’s latest weighing technology includes faster microprocessors and advanced algorithms for greater precision, especially in rough terrain. Both new units now include USB data transfer as standard for weekly or monthly exports of all logged loading data to an MS Excel file or other similar spreadsheet applications. VEI’s iPot web-enabled payload analysis software can also be accessed directly by both systems. The VPrint thermal printer is now faster and smaller, and can be integrated with the monitor or mounted separately, as required due to the layout of the equipment’s cab.

Compatible with virtually any make or model of wheel loader, skid steer or fork lift, the Helper X and Millennium 5 can be configured with model-specific data by simply loading the required information from a USB key.

Powerful load data with Helper X
Helper X introduces significantly more data management capabilities with numerous options for customization. Its built-in database can now manage up to 20 operator IDs with a capacity to program up to 500 customer names and addresses into the system. Up to 500 vehicle IDs can be attached to customer names. Customer entries can also be expanded with custom messages and details to be included on load tickets. The number of pre-configured destinations has been increased from 19 to 100.

For current users of VEI loader scales, the Helper X is compatible with all previous generations and will plug into existing wiring harnesses.

Operator-friendly Millennium 5
The Millennium 5 system has been reduced in overall size without compromising visibility or usability for the operator. An articulated bracket lets operators simply swivel the display into the most comfortable position for viewing. A new keypad data entry system design provides large, lighted “bumpy” buttons that make the scale easy to use and program, even when wearing gloves.

Millennium 5 now offers many data features similar the Helper X for managing customer load information. For customers who find they need expanded capabilities as their business grows or for special projects or to meet specific contract requirements, their Millennium 5 unit can be upgraded to equal Helper X capabilities with a simple firmware upgrade available from their RMT dealers.
