BPAL Automation

Access Control (optional module)


  • Bar coded ID card identification with real-time authentication.

  • Audit logging with pop-up alerts to security officer.

  • Can be configured to control inbound and outbound vehicles.

Delivery Point Control (optional module)


  • Control access to specific delivery (unloading) points in the yard.

  • User defined maximum number of vehicles per delivery point.

  • Red / Green signal lights indicate whether system will accept another vehicle at the highlighted delivery point.

  • Integrated with Registration at Weigh Scale to disallow entry of vehicles assigned to a specific delivery point when the maximum number of vehicles for that delivery point has been reached.

Sample Collection (optional module)


  • Sample collection can be performed manually or by a BPAL interface to automated sampling equipment.

  • BPAL offers a unique method to reduce the volume of sample testing and can be configured by Product or by Vendor Contract without giving advance knowledge that a specific vehicle is to be tested.

Weigh Scale and Registration


  • At entry/exit, for manned or unmanned operations, plastisized reusable or multi-stub consumable Bar Coded ID card is used to identify information such as Vendor, Origin, Product, Contract, Vehicle, Delivery Schedule and much more...

  • At the weigh scale, traffic lights ensure proper vehicle flow. Detection sensors are used for automatic truck scale zeroing and proper vehicle positioning.

  • Easy-to-follow automated sequencing guides the entire operation from entry to exit.

  • Whether weighing in loaded and weighing out empty or weighing in empty and weighing out loaded, the net weight will be calculated as the absolute value.

  • Traffic Control option allows for recording of vehicles not using the weigh scale.

Unloading and Receiving (optional module)


  • Bar coded ID card scanned to identify delivery and ensure the product is authorized to unload at the specific delivery point.

  • BPAL interfaces with dumper PLC and issues a Go/No-Go signal to the controller preventing the unloading of a product into the wrong delivery point avoiding accidental product contamination.

Quality Analysis (optional module)


  • Test parameters can be any defined contaminant. Quality Analysis protocols and limits are user defined by contract, product and individual data collection element.

  • Test results are saved in real-time using a direct link to the specific delivery based on Transaction ID or unique Bar Coded ID.

  • Menu driven testing procedures define automated steps allowing for single or composite testing of many samples.

  • Testing procedures are tailored to increase productivity as computer-interfaced laboratory equipment makes manual recording a thing of the past.
