The Cane Receivals package is a complete Management Information System for the recording and tracking of the sugar cane product from the field through to the factory. It is a comprehensive suite of application modules designed to satisfy all requirements of the industry.

Capture of Consignment Details

As the cane is harvested, the consignment details are recorded. The methods used to record these details are:

  • Data Entry from manually recorded consignment notes
  • Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) coupon
  • Telemetry over 4G network. Using an Android device, consignment details are transmitted to the central server at the mill as the cane is harvested. This data is sent via the Telstra 4G network. Find out more about our TeleCane package.

Weighbridge and Tip Control

Road

Road vehicles are usually processed automatically by the AWCS. The system can handle vehicles fitted with RFID tags and if OMR tickets are used. Order details are selected using a touch screen.

Rail

The weighbridge and tip areas are fully automatic with PLC/Distributed control interface. When the bin fleet is fitted with RFID tags, the operation of separate weighbridge and tip, or a combined weighbridge/tip occurs in a fully unmanned situation.
