The intent of this paper is to design an efficient and effective micro controller weight based alarm system that can be used in industries to monitor products during packaging. A package is placed on the weighing system, if it exceeds 50kg; an alarm system is triggered indicating a faulty package. The weight of the package is displayed on a screen and is simultaneously sent to a remote computer or device for storage. The PIC16F690 micro controller was used to control the system. To program this micro controller, the integrated environment used was MPLAB. WinQcard and Proteus were softwares used to develop circuit diagrams and come up with the printed circuit board. After implementing the components on the circuit board and programming the microchip, the system worked as expected.
