Air-Weigh has introduced a new in-cab electronic scale dubbed LoadMaxx. The new scale packages existing hardware and software technology in a new ComLink hardware device. The scale features a J1939/CAN bus interface allowing instantaneous dash displays of vehicle weight, which can also be transmitted to a fleet’s headquarters. Two alarm outputs are available to notify a driver when an axle group weight or GVW exceeds limits. The new scale also features an inclinometer option which compensates for uneven pressure on a vehicle’s suspension which can occur when parked on an incline. For more information, visit www.air-weighscales.com or call 888-459-3444.

A new “intelligent” dipstick that uses sensor technology to determine when motor oil needs to be replaced is being introduced to the trucking industry. The IntelliStick monitors oil condition by measuring the additive conditions and oxidation/acid build-up in the oil, while also scanning for water, coolant and fuel intrusions, the company says. A PDA can be used to read the test results. The company says the IntelliStick reduces unnecessary oil changes and eliminates the cost of oil analysis. For info, visit www. intellistick.com.
