Truck scales are made with steel decks or a steel frame into which concrete is poured (concrete deck). All scales made 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 improve the scale’s precision. Survivor OTR axle truck scales weigh during motion and are mounted in shallow pits to be flush with the road. The truck scale software allows data management for vehicle scales. In addition, weighing-in-motion (WIM) scales can check axle overloading and tires that are not fully inflated at highway speeds.
SURVIVOR OTR truck scales allow a minimum of 250 trucks per day for 25 years without weighbridge fatigue. To clarify, this is equal to more than two million weighments. Rice Lake’s guarantee covers load cells, J-boxes and suspension systems to ensure operation free of worries. 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 and 12 years, which leads the industry, from delivery to the Caribbean region.
Rice Lake’s popular 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 very easy. As a result, even operators with little or no computer experience are immediately comfortable with its easy to understand, graphically-enhanced user interface. But don’t let its easyness 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 handles all relevant data for each step in your company.
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 and truck scale software 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.
