Understanding Portable Vehicle Weighing Scales

Portable vehicle weighing scales are designed to measure the weight of vehicles efficiently and accurately, no matter where they are used.
These scales are lightweight, easy to transport, and can be set up quickly, making them ideal for on-the-go applications or situations where moving your truck scale frequently is necessary, like construction sites.
Due to their mobility and compact size, it is important to consider that these scales are not legal for trade. For a scale to be legal for trade, it must measure the entire truck at once, which requires a portable or permanent weighbridge truck scale.

Importance for Traffic Solutions

Accurate vehicle weight measurement is essential for effective traffic management and safety. By ensuring vehicles comply with weight regulations, we can protect road infrastructure, enhance public safety, and improve the efficiency of transportation networks.
On the company side, portable vehicle weighing scales help avoid heavy traffic fines, distribute cargo to reduce uneven truck wear, and more.


Law Enforcement: Monitoring and controlling overweight vehicles to prevent road damage and accidents
Commercial Vehicle Weight Enforcement: Protecting road infrastructure by enforcing weight limits on commercial vehicles.

How Do Portable Truck Scales Work?


Portable truck scales function based on load cell technology. But what is a load cell? Load cells are sensors that convert the force of the vehicle’s weight into an electrical signal, which is then processed to provide an accurate weight reading.
In the case of a weigh solution that aims to capture the weight of vehicles without stopping over the platform, the other important part of these equations is the weigh-in-motion software.


There are three main types of WIM systems:

  1. Slow speed < 10 mph.
  2. Medium speed <~30 mph.
  3. Highway speed.


Setup Process

  • For static weight
    • Position the scales on a flat surface.
    • Drive each axle of the vehicle onto the scales.
    • Read the weight displayed on the connected device.
  • For dynamic weight
    • Position the scales on a flat surface. Dynamic WIM requires levelling tracking to be used with scales.
    • Drive the vehicle onto the scales.
    • Read the weight displayed on the connected device.

Typical Scenarios

  • Roadside inspections
  • Temporary weigh stations
  • Agricultural and industrial site checks


Factors such as calibration, surface level, and environmental conditions influence the accuracy of portable vehicle scales.
Regular maintenance and proper setup ensure the highest precision. Good practices recommend calibration, which is due once a year.
