Weighing Scale integration with SAP ( Packing Station)

Hi All,

We need to have our Weighing Scales integrated with SAP to capture the READINGS for parcels / cartons / shipments automatically.

I observe there is a provision for maintaining RFC connection , Scale Checkbox etc in SPRO--->Logistics Exec ---> Packing --->Set profile for packing w.r.t HUPAST tcode ...

Would you plz help me with some work-arounds ...???

Regards

Jamna

    Hi,

    Please press F1on RFC field in packing station profile ther you will get the information about integration.

    Also a thrid party software is mentioned which will act as a middleware between SAP and weighing scale.

      Hi Folks,

      There is XMI technology available that can be potentially leveraged for this type of requirements in integrating any electronic gadgets talking to SAP ....

      I think SAP XMI will be vry useful for this.

      XMI is having ability to capture real time data from other system and update accordingly.

      It has have connectors which will capture values from other system and pull in SAP.

      How to Integrage Weigh Scale with OPC server via xMII 12.0

      Hello Experts,

      I am new to xMII. We want to integrate shop floor weigh scale into SAP PI Sheet to read the value from weight scale into PI Sheet. We have the infrastructure Ohaus weigh scale, xMII 12.0, SAP ERP 4.70, Kepware OPC Server, installed xMII framework for UDS and UDS 4.0. We are able to integrate the OPC Data tags into SAP PI Sheet successfully. But we need help to integrate weight scale with OPC server to read the scale value into OPC data tag.

      ERP-Scale from Pocket Programs provides a standardized u201Cplug & playu201D interface for weighing equipment. It is SAP Certified and can be used for integration of weigh-scales with the SAP Packing Station transaction (HUPAST) or with custom ABAP developments. Major international companies are already gaining benefit by implementing ERP-Scale in their plants worldwide.

      What have to say folks about the possibilities with the above ? But shouldnt SAP have some standard FM / RFC / BAPI owefully facilitating the same???

      But the available FM HU_GET_RFC_DATA doesnt have any documentations attached to it ?

    Hi !

    we use ERPScale from PocketPrograms.com. It offers an interface with almost any type of scale (RS-232, USB, Ethernet) and the integration with HUPAST is working out of the box.
