QuickLoad On-Board Scale
April 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Air-Weigh has expanded its on-board scale family with a new entry-level weighing solution.
The new scale, named QuickLoad, incorporates state-of-the-art hardware and software technology packaged in a compact in-dash display. The QuickLoad Scale offers many on-board weighing features currently offered by Air-Weigh in an affordably priced configuration. QuickLoad is designed for use on dedicated tractor-trailer configurations and straight trucks.
Up to four axle groups (including steer, drive and trailer axles) can be monitored on the in-dash display; the scale automatically calculates GVW and net payload. Weight information consisting of steer axle weight, drive axle weight, trailer axle weights, gross vehicle weight, and payload weight is displayed in the cab. QuickLoad features warning and overweight alarm outputs, dual-point calibration, and easy installation. There are several air and axle deflection sensor kits available that allow you to tailor each QuickLoad scale to a variety of truck, tractor, and dedicated tractor-trailer configurations.
The QuickLoad on-board scale converts tractor and trailer suspension loads to an accurate on-the-ground weight. By comparing empty and loaded axle group weights with empty and loaded suspension pressures, the scale can be calibrated to display accurate weights at any suspension load. QuickLoad accuracy is not affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity and is easy to operate, install, and calibrate, according to the company.
