PERMANENT WEIGHT IN MOTION

These dynamic scales are excellent for high traffic locations where vehicle speed is reduced to under 20 km/hr. Common applications include toll booths, border crossings, shipping gates, or factory floors where vehicle speed is reduced. Permanent weight in motion scales require a pit to be poured to mount the weigh bridges into.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Permanent, dynamic weighing process
  • Obtain truck and vehicle weight quickly
  • Reliable scale system limited maintenance
  • Truck weight accurate to 3% GVW, 95% CI
  • Slow speed applications (less than 16 km/hr)
  • Exceeds ASTM IV guidelines for slow speed WIM
  • Windows 32 bits compatible Weight In Motion Software; automatic vehicle classification; overweight indication; not Vista supported
  • 4 year warranty on frame, 2 year for load cells

 

INSTALLATION

Installation of Massload's permanent weight in motion scale is simple. An approximate hole must be cut through the surface of the roadway where the scale will be placed. Scale frames are then bolted together with braces which will later be used to keep the scale flush with surrounding concrete.

Proper drainage is provided to the cutout and the scale frames are then suspended over the cutout. The braces ensure the permanent pads are installed flush with the surrounding concrete to ensure a level approach to the scale and a level departure from the scale.

The first pour creates the bottom of the scale pit. After the first pour has had time to cure, the second pour fills the outer portion of the scale cutout. Load cells, cables, sum boxes, LCIB computer interface, and WIM software are now ready to be installed to finish the scale installation.

 

SYSTEM COMPONENTS

  • 1 Permanent WIM pad (for shipping purposes, separated into 2 decks)
  • 1 Summation box for the WIM load cells
  • 1 Cable for summation box to LCIB computer interface in the scale house
  • 1 LCIB Computer Interface Device
  • USB cable to connect LCIB to computer
  • 1 Weight In Motion (WIM) software package

 

WEIGHT IN MOTION SOFTWARE

  • Static and dynamic weighing mode
  • Automated vehicle classification with configurable classifications
  • Overweight indication based on vehicle classification
  • Optional vehicle detection loop to start and end vehicle weighment
  • Dual traffic light support
  • Inductive loop support
  • Configurable report generation
  • Configurable main screen - show only relevant data
  • Post weighing screen allows you to fill in additional information
  • Program security on settings and user logins to protect weight data
  • Convertable language library

120" x 30" x 6"
Sealing Standard IP-66: totally protected from dust; protected from strong jets of water
Power This dynamic scale is powered by the LCIB, which is powered from the USB port of the computer (draws < 500mA)

VEHICLE DETECTION LOOP

Inductive loops are another presence detection device that detect the electromagnetic signature of vehicles. They are used to begin or end a WIM process, and in this sense are similar in function to light curtains. Installation of inductive loops requires a 1/8" saw cut that is 1" deep and installed with copper wire and sealant.

TRAFFIC LIGHT

Massload software can control traffic lights to help you manage the flow of traffic before and after weighments. Traffic lights are useful to stop vehicles that are overweight or to direct traffic that is underweight. They can also be used to start and stop vehicle weighing through manual or automatic (presence detection) devices.

RFID TAG READER

Radio frequency identification tags can be placed in individual vehicles. When a vehicle with an RFID tag passes over the RFID reader at the scale site, their identification is tracked along with their weight. This allows you to track a fleet of vehicles easily and weight data can be sorted and analysed to understand fleet activity. Ideal candidates are mine sites with RFID tagged trucks to monitor truck weight and material flow.

REMOTE SCORE BOARD

The remote score board displays vehicle weight at a long distance. Remote score boards can come with 2" lettering (visible to 50 feet), 4.5" letter (visible to under 250 feet), and to 6.5" lettering (visible to over 300 feet). Remote score boards can also come with traffic lights as seen here to direct the flow of traffic. Score boards allow you to check weight quickly and easily.
