On-board Weigh Scales (Air)
The Plastecnic On-Board Weigh Scale is a system for vehicles with air suspension and comes as a complete kit, designed for easy self-installation.
The system consists of a single-DIN in-cab unit which displays the gross vehicle weight (GVW), net weight and the axle group weights in real-time.
The system is also able to transmit live weight data via Bluetooth to a nearby Android tablet or mobile phone, allowing weight data to be viewed remotely outside the cab – particularly useful for single-man loading. In addition to displaying live weight values the phone also displays a traffic-light style weight representation.
Both the phone and the single-DIN in-cab unit produce an audible overload alarm when a pre-selected weight level is reached.
As an optional feature, weight data can also be transmitted to on-board telematics devices (including TomTom LINK) via either RS-232 or Bluetooth, from where data can be integrated into a third party fleet management program (e.g. TomTom WEBFLEET).
This system is ideal for multi trailer “drop & swap” and is suitable for all trailers types, including:
- Walking Floor
- Flat Bed
- Curtain Sider.
The system is accurate to within ±0.5%. An in-cab printer option is also available.
Note – this product is for vehicles with all-air suspension.
