FPayload Monitoring System for Darwin City Council Side Tipper

A payload monitoring system was recently fitted to a side tipping truck for Darwin City Council to eliminate instances of accidental truck overloading.

The Isuzu truck was fitted with the very cost effective payload monitoring system to ensure the driver is fully aware if the truck has been overloaded and is not legal to drive on public roads. The payload monitoring system displays the net weight of timber logs as they are being loaded into the tray and the side tipper will be used to empty the load at the destination.

Due to the weight variances in the logs, the payload monitoring system was fitted to take the guesswork out of loading the truck within legal axle/truck weights. To ensure the driver is aware of instances of overloading, both visual and audible alarms are automatically initiated.

Accuweigh’s payload monitoring systems use sensors mounted on the truck suspension to accurately monitor the weight over each axle. As there are no moving parts, these weighing systems are not prone to weighing errors caused by stretched springs which are a common problem with other types of payload monitoring systems.

The digital weight indicator of the payload monitoring systems is fitted in the cab and simultaneously displays the following truck weights on a single screen:

  1. Front axle loadings displayed as both weight and as a percentage of legal load

  2. Rear axle loadings displayed as both weight and as a percentage of legal load

  3. Combined front and rear axle loadings displayed as both weight and as a percentage of legal load

Accuweigh can provide the ideal weighing solution for all types of vehicles, with all systems fully backed by eight branches across Australia.
