Update Truck Tare


SMSTurbo allows for Weigh Masters to update a truck's stored tare weight "on the fly"  from the SMSTurbo ticketing screen or from the Truck Maintenance screen.  See steps below to update a truck's stored tare weight.


Update a Truck's tare weight "ON THE FLY" via SMSTurbo ticketing


Note: In order to use stored tare weight on a truck you must have purchased the tare option for SMSTurbo v10.

If you did not purchase and enable this option you will not be able to save a tare weight with a truck.

If you do not have the tare option and you attempt to save tare weight in the truck maintenance record you will see:



You will be able to enter weight onto the ticket in the tare field to store with that ticket.



1. Launch  the SMSTurbo Ticketing window.


2. Click the lookup icon next to the truck field and the Lookup Trucks window will appear.


3. Find the truck in the list that requires a new stored tare weight.


4. Right click the truck from the list that needs a new tare weight.


5. Click "Tare this Truck".



6. Enter in tare weight and click the OK button.


NOTE:  If the ScaleCOM interface is configured, the live weight will appear if the truck is on the scale,

otherwise manually enter the weight.


7. The tare confirmation window will appear.



8. Generate a New Entry Date and a New Expire Date for this truck to be stored on the truck maintenance record if

desired. Use the buttons to set a date in the future for the Expire Date. Select the blue check box to the left of the New

Expire Date to use that date to generate a warning message when exceeded. Use the Truck Warning Days value

on the General 2 tab to define how many days in advance of the Expire Date a warning message will be displayed when this truck is selected. Select the green check mark on the bottom right to save your changes. Unless you manually enter the dates here and save them, the dates will not update on the truck maintenance screen.


9. The truck's stored tare weight is now changed.
