Truck scales are manufactured with steel decks or a steel frame into which concrete is poured (concrete deck). All scales manufactured today are load-cell based and the load cells are mounted to allow some platform movement. Consequently they allow dirt and debris to fall through and preserve the scale’s accuracy. OTR axle truck scales weigh in-motion and are mounted in shallow pits to be flush with the road. Truck scale software allows data management for vehicle scales. In addition, weighing-in-motion (WIM) scales can check axle overloading and under-inflated tires at highway speeds.
SURVIVOR OTR truck scales accommodate a minimum of 250 trucks per day for 25 years without weighbridge fatigue. To clarify, this is equivalent to more than two million weighments. Rice Lake’s warranty covers load cells, junction boxes and suspension systems to ensure worry-free operation. SURVIVOR OTR scales also include a lightning protection package, and weighbridges are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty is available for a choice between five and an industry-leading 12 years from delivery to the Caribbean region.
Rice Lake’s reputable SURVIVOR OTR Axle Scale handles in-ground, shallow-pit truck axle weighing for applications where above ground ramps aren’t practical.
Rice Lake’s TransAct® scale software makes new scale management installations or upgrades virtually effortless. As a result, even operators with little or no computer experience are immediately comfortable with its intuitive, graphically-enhanced user interface. But don’t let its simplicity fool you—TransAct serves as a powerful central database. It seamlessly integrates your entire operation with transaction information. Consequently, from the scale, to the office, to the customer, the built-in computer quickly generates all relevant data for each step in your enterprise.
OnTrak software is an effective data management tool for vehicle operations that use Rice Lake Automated Ticketing Kiosk (ATK) systems.
IRD supplies Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) scale and sensor systems. For example, weight enforcement, weight-based tolling (WIM@TOLL®), traffic data collection, border/port security and weighing at freight terminals. IRD’s scales have been used in commercial vehicle weigh station bypass systems in the Caribbean region for over 30 years.
IRD’s weigh in motion and TACS scales can detect under-pressured tires by their footprint as well as checking axle weights for overload.
