Payload Monitoring Systems were recently fitted to two Dennis Eagle side lift waste trucks for use by a City Council in South East Queensland. Supplied by Accuweighâ€™s QWM branch in Brisbane, the Payload Monitoring Systems are being used to eliminate instances of accidental vehicle overloading.
Fitting Payload Monitoring Systems to the waste collections vehicles gives the drivers/operators the tools required to make informed decisions on when the vehicle needs to be returned for emptying. Axle weights are displayed individually as well as the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) to ensure the driver is aware when each axle and /or the vehicle is nearing legal weight limits.
Accuweighâ€™s TruckWeigh Payload Monitoring Systems is ideal for a wide range of trucks and trailers due to its ability to be fitted to both spring and air bag suspension vehicles. This dual sensor capability allows vehicles using either or a mix of both suspension types to be fitted with a very cost effective Payload Monitoring System.
The TruckWeigh Payload Monitoring System catered perfectly to the Dennis Eaglesâ€™ 6×4 chassis which is fitted with leaf springs on the front suspension and airbag suspension on both the rear axles. The weight readings from the sensors fitted to the suspension system are transmitted in a CAN bus digital format to the digital weight indicator mounted in the truckâ€™s cab.
The Payload Monitoring System provides both audible and visible warnings to the driver when nearing or exceeding the alarm programmed weight of rated axle capacities and total truck gross vehicle mass (GVM). In the Dennis Eagles, the weight indicator is mounted in an overhead control console with other control electrical devices.
Accuweigh provides invaluable assistance to clients wishing to avoid instances of accidental vehicle overloading which can incur huge fines and other penalties through Chain of Responsibility Legislation (CoR). Eight Accuweigh branches across mainland states provide Superior Product Support on all onboard vehicle weighing systems.
