In weighing and labeling applications when handling boxes etc., it is becoming more and more common to have different systems involved in weighing and labeling, where integrations are desirable to transfer data between systems.


  • Scales and printers cannot always be in the same physical area, so weighing and label printing do not happen like a sequence in a single system.
  • Solve the almost impossible task of legally approving all systems and transfers involved, especially when managing system modifications and updates.
  • Verify legal data is printed on labels, i.e., actual weight is not tampered with or modified.
  • Use standard approved scales without programming any particular logic into the scales.


The CodeIT approach used unique, scannable ID codes on the boxes and created a Weight Record together with a calculated checksum at weighing, using an approved software solution and supported hardware. The Weight Record and checksum can then be transferred as a data pair between systems. Later, when a label is to be printed, a component from the approved solution can be used inside the labeling software to verify the Weight Record and Checksum before sending data to the label printer. If verification fails, no label is printed, and an error message is generated.

Simply put, the service provides a legal print even if the label is issued after a process between scale and printer.
