Each weigh pad comes with two attachable ramps for static weighing. Should dynamic weighing be required, we recommend extra long weigh pads (1 meter) and leveling track. See portable weigh-in-motion for more information on using Ultraslim weigh scales to obtain dynamic weight.
These weigh pads are not legal-for-trade in obtaining static weight or dynamic weight.
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.
The permanent in-ground WIM system comprises:
|Rated Capacity (pounds)|
Dynamic weighing: 50K per axle weight
Dynamic weighing accurate to 3% of gross vehicle weight, 95% CI
150% full scale safe overload
-40ºC to +80ºC (operating)
50 lb standard
670 lbs / deck (2 decks per system)
High strength steel
Infinite cycles (axle loads) per day
Accuracy is significantly affected by the scale foundation. This scale system must have a level and flat concrete approach and departure that is level within 1/16″ for the most accurate vehicle weight
144″ x 30″ x 6″
IP-66: totally protected from dust; protected from strong jets of water
This dynamic scale is powered by the LCIB, which is powered from the USB port of the computer (draws < 500mA)
