TruckWeigh’s Mechanical Suspension Onboard Scale is designed for quick, easy and inexpensive aftermarket installation and to be accurate to within 1 percent on level ground. The gauge mounts directly to the suspension with a high-strength adhesive and requires no welding or special tools; it typically can be installed in one hour on tractors and trailers with walking beam, leaf-spring or other mechanical suspensions.
Suited for refuse, aggregate and logging vehicles, the scale consists of a set of strain gauges or sensors, transmitters and a handheld receiver. With a range of 500 feet, the receiver displays axle group and gross vehicle weight readings in three-second intervals. The scale may be integrated with existing telematics systems.
