Request Quote


  • Sends raw and analyzed values from the scale to the cloud
  • Supports long-term efficiency by providing scale and throughput records
  • Expandable with support for multiple data points from indicators, junction boxes, auxiliary equipment, sensors, web relays and IP cameras


  • Enhanced onboard diagnostics identify cell noise, tests for linearity and zero-reference, and monitors drift
  • Diagnostics are complemented by a unique load cell emulation feature which compensates for a failing load cell until a repair can be made
  • Unmatched reaction time (500 cycles per second) brings accuracy to new levels


  • Online portal to monitor scale status in real-time
  • Receive alerts when scale is outside of programmable tolerances
  • Remotely identify service needs and review technician notes
  • Hosted on a cloud platform

Rice Lake’s VIRTUlink™ IoT System connects weighing equipment to the cloud, enabling data from networked devices to be utilized for a wide variety of business and operational decisions. By combining the iQUBE2 digital junction box with the latest cloud technology, VIRTUlink provides access to diagnostics and can automate service alerts.

VIRTUlink supports long-term efficiency, and is expandable with support for multiple datapoints from weight indicators, junction boxes, auxiliary equipment, sensors and web relays, and IP cameras.

VIRTUlink-enabled systems can automatically report scale status and individual load cell information. iQUBE2’s unique load cell emulation feature allows it to compensate for a failing load cell until a repair can be made. With an unmatched reaction time, accuracy is brought to new levels.
