Designed to work exclusively with the My Weigh Ultraship U2 scale, ScaleDCU2 collects the weight data sent from the U2’s usb port. This data is then formatted to suit the user’s requirements and saved as a serial numbered record in the daily output file. These files which are in XML format may be easily imported into other applications such as Microsoft’s Excel for further weekly, monthly and yearly analysis.



Once the program has been set up to the users format simply place the weight on the scale and press the send button on the U2 scale.



The My Weigh U2 has a fixed output so this parameter  is not adjustable. It is a simple weight output which can be placed in any of the up to 5 allowed fields in each data record. To make each record more readable there are 5 internally generated fields which may be added to each record. These are Date, Time, Scale# and 2 User fields. These fields are added or edited by way of a filter settings page from the settings menu.

There is also a live data window  which can be enabled from the settings menu. In the above screenshot the filter is set up for 4 fields with the headings  Scale, Weight, Serial Number and Time.

The folder where the daily output files are stored is selectable by a “browse to” window and can be changed by the user.

All these settings are saved in a configuration file.
