Knight Hawk Coal

PRODUCT:

Interact® SE truck scale software with DataSync and Image Capture Modules. RFID based Real-Time Scale Appliances (RTSA) and Check-in Terminal with custom interfaces to their in-house order entry and loadout systems.

CHALLENGE:

Knight Hawk Coal (KHC) operates several mine sites in southern Illinois. They were looking for a solution provider to upgrade a custom system that was developed a number of years ago. The hardware was becoming outdated and unreliable.

In addition, office personnel did not have timely access to transaction data at the mine sites. KHC was in the middle of an expansion that was going to increase their production levels at their Prairie Eagle site and needed a system that would more efficiently process these transactions.

SOLUTION:

A multi-phase solution was necessary for this installation. During the initial phase, KHC installed an RFID based RTSA system with Interact SE software at each mine site. Information is dispatched for each truck to the RTSA so truck drivers enter minimal information at the terminal.

The final phase involved synchronizing the mine site databases with the central office in near real-time. This system is interfaced to KHC’s in-house order entry system. KHC now has the ability to dispatch trucks to their dock loadout facility faster and more efficiently.
