ON-BOARD SCALE

Air-Weigh has announced a new sensor and software configuration designed for vocational vehicles equipped with the Mack Camelback drive suspension. This new configuration is available for Air-Weigh’s LoadMaxx product line, adding to the already available scales for the Hendrickson Haulmaxx and HN series suspensions. Air-Weigh digital on-board scales feature an in-dash display that shows GVW, net payload, plus steer- and drive-axle weights.

The scale can be installed on dump trucks, mixers, and refuse vehicles that use the Mack Camelback drive suspension. The scale incorporates Air-Weigh’s patented deflection sensor technology, which is said to provide accurate weight measurement on steer and drive axles with mechanical suspensions.

The new scale provides critical axle and GVW weight information in a more cost-effective package than load cell systems, the maker claims. Air-Weigh scales offer user-programmable alarms to indicate warning and overweight conditions, multiple digital data interfaces capable of transmitting weight information to on-board computers, and PIN-protected dual-point calibration. They’re claimed to be easy to install, calibrate, and maintain.
