Company, which manufactures fixed and portable scales and sensors that incorporate strain gauge technology for static and weigh-in-motion (WIM) applications, is celebrating its 40th anniversary of manufacturing scales. The company is using the World Congress to highlight notable successes for new and existing weighing products.
For fixed weigh-in-motion applications, Intercomp’s in-ground strain gauge strip sensors used in low and high speed WIM (HS-WIM), and the LS-WIM axle scale have each successfully passed OIML R134 weigh-in-motion testing. These fixed WIM scales and sensors give product options delivering stable and accurate readings at speeds ranging from 3 - 80mph (5 - 130km/h).
The scale developments don’t end with fixed units: the wireless LP78 low-profile portable scale has received NTEP certification for enforcement in the US, and is in queue with other Intercomp scales for OIML R76 product testing this year.
As Intercomp points out, countries throughout the world differ with what equipment is approved for weighing applications.
In some regions, weigh-in-motion supplies the required performance, while others involve static scales to verify weights. With the diversity of available scales and sensors, Intercomp says it manufactures an option for almost any weighing application.
Intercomp is inviting ITS World Congress attendees to stop by its stand to celebrate the history and success of the company and view its vehicle scales and sensors.
