New entry-level Air-Weigh scale targets dedicated vehicles
May 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Air-Weigh has expanded its on-board scale product family with the addition of the QuickLoad Scale, an affordably-priced, easy to install and use weighing solution designed for dedicated tractor trailer configurations and straight trucks.
The new scale provides many of the on-board weighing features currently offered by Air-Weigh, integrated with state-of-the-art hardware and software technology packaged in a compact, backlit in-dash display. It monitors steer, drive, and trailer axles on the display and automatically calculates gross vehicle weight (GVW) and net payload.
Similar to other Air-Weigh scales, the QuickLoad comes standard with warning and overweight alarm outputs and dual-point calibration.
With several air and axle deflection sensor kits available, the new scale can be tailored to a variety of truck, tractor, and dedicated tractor trailer configurations.
The QuickLoad on-board scale 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.
The scale's accuracy is not affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity.
QuickLoad configurations are available starting as low as $400.
