WeighIn settings

Before you can use the WeighIn module, you first need to set it up. This is done by pressing the Settings button in the Options command group in the WeighIn module application. Start by opening the WeighIn app via shortcut or Windows Start menu.

Press Settings to open the Settings window.

Basic Settings

Here you can specify how the WeighIn module connects to JudoManager Desktop application (server). If the WeighIn module is installed on a computer in a local network with the server computer, you can select Local location and type in the IP of the server computer. You can also browse through all available server computers in the local network by pressing the Search button. After selecting the desired computer's IP you can test the connection by pressing Test. 

If however the computer with the WeightIn module is not in the same local network as the server computer (computer running the JudoManager Desktop application), then you can choose Remote location. When you choose this option and press OK, you will be asked to log in with your credentials. After a successful login the Select competition window will open. Select your competition and your main view will populate with current registrations. You can now test the connection with the scale and start the weigh-in process. Note that every weight will be synchronized with the cloud database and consequently with the server computer. 

When Local location is chosen, it is important that the Service in JudoManager Desktop application (top right corner) is set to Running, else any weight-ins done will not be synchronized.
When Remote location is chosen, it is important that the Auto Synchronize function in JudoManager Desktop application (top left corner) is turned on, else any weight-ins done will not be synchronized.

Scale Com port - choose which COM port should be used for the connection with the scale. By default an active COM port will be selected.

Advanced Settings

  1. Language - override the default language used in the module. The default language is the same as the one chosen in JudoManager Desktop application (server) or English if on a remote location.
  2. Main server - which port should be used when connecting to the server computer.
  3. Synchronization - choose whether to enable Auto synchronization and set its interval. Auto synchronization will automatically push any new weights to the JudoManager Desktop application (server computer).
  4. Weighing scale - select the Baud rate of your scale. Consult the manual of your scale to find out which Baud rate it is using and type it into the input box. By default it is set to 9600, which is the most commonly used Baud rate.
