Air-Weigh is expanding their on-board scale product family with the addition of a new entry-level weighing solution. The new scale, named QuickLoad, incorporates new hardware and software technology packaged in a compact in-dash display. The QuickLoad Scale offers many on-board weighing features currently offered by Air-Weigh in an affordably-priced configuration, the company says. 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. There are several air and axle deflection sensor kits available that allow users to tailor each QuickLoad scale 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. QuickLoad accuracy is not affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity and is easy to operate, install, and calibrate.
All Air-Weigh on-board scales, including QuickLoad, feature a patented dual-point calibration system. Coupled with several proprietary technologies, this allows customers to accurately know their specific axle group weights at the loading site. Air-Weigh eliminates weight-related costs including fees, time, out-of-route miles, fuel, overweight fines, and delays in truck stops, the company says.
QuickLoad configurations are available starting as low as $400. Product deliveries are scheduled to begin in April 2008. For more information on QuickLoad or other Air-Weigh products go to www.Air-WeighScales.com or call 1-888-459-3444.
