Truck Scale

TruckWeight’s next-generation Smart Scale system is now available for trucks and tractor-trailer combinations with air-ride or mechanical suspensions. The system features a wireless handheld receiver to allow drivers to maximize payloads and avoid overweight tickets in field loading applications such as aggregate and liquid/dry bulk hauling. A new backlit handheld receiver and expanded memory capacity is one of the key upgrades from the first-generation system. The receiver features a display that’s easy to read in all lighting conditions. Also, with the added memory capacity allows the unit to store configuration data for up to 2,000 different trailers, an important feature for drop-and-hook operations. By providing a signal range of up to 500 ft. (155 m), the Smart Scale system allows a driver to monitor loading from the cab, loading station or at a safe distance away from the truck. The system’s Smart Sensors, available for both air-ride and mechanical suspensions, can be installed without any special tools or skills. Using two common AA batteries in each sensor, typical battery life is 8-12 months in normal use. TruckWeight,
