Air-Weigh adds QuickLoad entry-level scale
Aug 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Air-Weigh is expanding its on-board scale product family with the addition of a new entry-level weighing system. The new scale, named QuickLoad, incorporates state-of-the-art hardware and software technology packaged in a compact in-dash display. QuickLoad is designed for use on dedicated tractor-trailer configurations and straight trucks.
Up to four axle groups (including steer, drive, and trailer axles) can be monitored on the in-dash display, and the scale automatically calculates GVW and net payload. Weight information consisting of steer axle weight, drive axle weight, trailer axle weights, gross vehicle weight, and payload weight is displayed in the cab. Like other Air-Weigh scales, QuickLoad features warning and overweight alarm outputs, dual-point calibration, and easy installation. Several air and axle deflection sensor kits can allow you to tailor each QuickLoad scale to a variety of truck, tractor, and dedicated tractor-trailer configurations.
QuickLoad converts tractor and trailer suspension loads to an accurate on-the-ground weight. By comparing empty and loaded axle group weights with empty and loaded suspension pressures, the scale can be calibrated to display accurate weights at any suspension load. QuickLoad accuracy is not affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity and is easy to operate, install, and calibrate.
