How SmartCan and SmartCell Will Pay for Itself Over Time

October 4, 2021

Getting the right digital load cells and digital conversion kits is crucial to your business. If you rely on accurate measurements for everyday work, consider investing in Cardinal SmartCan and SmartCell devices. Cardinal’s new line will help owners keep an eye on their scale’s health, reduce downtime and cuts down on the time needed for repairs.

But what is a Cardinal SmartCan or SmartCell? Read on to learn more about what Cardinal SmartCan and SmartCell devices can do for you.

How will Cardinal SmartCan and SmartCell help me?

Cardinal, a company known for industrial scales and scale accessories, has launched a new line called SmartCan and SmartCell. These are a series of digital load cells or digital conversion kits that will tell the user and the technician when something has broken down or failed. While this is not cutting-edge technology, they include Cardinal iSite technology for free. iSite is “a Cloud-based remote monitoring system that can send dealers e-mail and/or text alerts for digital load cell issues.”

By having iSite incorporated with this system, it notifies the scale company when an item fails. We receive the notifications via text and/or email. This greatly reduces the customer’s downtime—but it also logs the scale’s health status at least once every hour. iSite stores this data online.

This is where Cardinal is leading the industry. By taking advantage of iSite and having it added to your system, you’ll save time and money. It will not only notify the scale company, but it can even allow us, as your trusted scale company, to monitor your scale’s health and identify potential issues—before they shut your scale down due to failure.

To date, Texas Measurement & Calibration Solutions, LLC has caught over 10 cell failures before they actually failed, ended up shutting the customer down and had them wait on a repair. That’s right—the digital conversion system and digital cells cuts hours off a repair. This minimizes the customer’s total cost in lost operating expenses and lost revenue from the scale being closed, along with additional repair costs. This could save the customer hundreds if not thousands of dollars, depending on the size of their operation.

When you consider the benefits of iSite—that it allows the scale company to catch just one cell failure before it completely shuts down—that means the repair can be scheduled around the customer’s availability and time frame. That cuts their downtime down to zero—and that alone will pay for the system. In fact, just one catch will pay for 10 Cardinal SmartCan or SmartCell systems.
