Intercomp has launched a low-speed Weigh in Motion (LS-WiM) system which it says allows fleet managers to collect the weight of vehicles without hampering traffic flow.
The system is suitable for high-volume entry and exit gates and, unlike full-length truck scales, does not require incoming and outgoing traffic to stop every time a vehicle needs to be weighed, the company adds.
According to Intercomp, the system’s small footprint allows it to be installed at most facilities at approximately half the cost compared to traditional full-length truck scales. It can weigh vehicles travelling up to 10mph.
The solution is expected to provide efficient verification of individual axle weights, axle groups and gross vehicle weights, which law enforcement agencies use to determine compliance of commercial vehicles.
