Automated online documentation

Published:  01 July, 2014

UK flowmeter specialist Litre Meter reports it has introduced a new electronic documentation system which uses a combination of QR codes and mobile technology to deliver quick access to flowmeter information on the fly.

The QR, or quick response, code is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached using numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary and kanji encoding modes. Because the codes have greater storage capacity than a standard barcode they are said to be ideal for product tracking, item identification, time tracking and document management.

Details of each meter which the company supplies as part of a single project - for example, all the meters supplied for a particular chemical injection skid - will be held at a unique URL. The website will include all the relevant documentation for each meter including calibration certificates, PMI certificates and material certificates as well as specifications, manuals and instructions.
