TruckWeigh II (Overload Control System)
Ensure that the safe & legal loading of your HGVs isn’t based on guesswork.
AccuOnboard’s TruckWeigh™ on-board overload/ payload control system provides a solution to an industry-wide problem by enabling operators to avoid overloading, maximise payloads and reduce WHS risk.
This essential aid to equal load distribution provides:
- Drivers the knowledge they need and security they deserve
- Keeps your operation compliant with National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) requirements and demands of good practice
- Cost effective payload optimisation, and
- Essential load monitoring for both load and distribution
TruckWeigh payload monitoring system is specifically designed for most spring suspension vehicles and trailers. The system monitors spring deflection for single steer and multiple dual and tri-axle groups.
OPTIMISED FOR MULTI-TRAILER VEHICLES
TruckWeigh II is specifically designed for all vehicles with mechanical and/or air spring suspension. VPG Onboard Weighing has combined features of its patented axle transducer technology and the proven 1155 digital indicator has led to the development of the 1160 digital indicator for semi-trailers, B-double and road trains, providing allow cost overload monitoring and payload optimisation system.
TruckWeigh II is simple to install and offers cost effective overload monitoring for new and existing vehicles.
AXLE LOAD MONITORING
TruckWeigh II has no moving parts and is not susceptible to wear or slipping out of calibration because of stretched springs which are common in other axle load monitoring systems. Combinations of our patented axle transducers and/or air pressure transducers obtain the loading condition of each axle or axle group.
Where tractor and trailer combinations are swapped, TruckWeigh II automatically recognises the overload monitoring system on the trailer, so there is no need to recalibrate every time the trailer is swapped.
PACKER PLATE SHUTDOWN
The packer plate shutdown function ensures overloading is prevented by inhibiting the compaction unit when the gross or net alarm point is reached. An override key switch allows the compaction unit to be switched back on by an authorised person.
Connection to third party tracking systems is easily achieved via TruckWeigh II’s standard telematics output.
