New Air-Weigh Entry-Level Scale

27/03/08

Eugene, OR - Air-Weigh is expanding their on-board scale product family with the addition of a new entry-level weighing solution. The new scale, named QuickLoad, incorporates state-of-theart hardware and software technology packaged in a compact in-dash display. The QuickLoad Scale offers many desirable on-board weighing features currently offered by Air-Weigh in an affordably-priced configuration. QuickLoad is designed for use on dedicated tractor-trailer configurations and straight trucks

Up to four axle groups (including steer, drive and trailer axles) can be monitored on the in-dash display and the scale automatically calculates GVW and net payload. Weight information consisting of steer axle weight, drive axle weight, trailer axle weights, gross vehicle weight, and payload weight is displayed in the cab. Like other Air-Weigh scales, QuickLoad features warning and overweight alarm outputs, dual-point calibration, and easy installation. There are several air and axle deflection sensor kits available that allow you to tailor each QuickLoad scale to a variety of truck, tractor, and dedicated truck trailer configurations.

The QuickLoad on-board scale converts tractor and trailer suspension loads to an accurate on-the-ground weight. By comparing empty and loaded axle group weights with empty and loaded suspension pressures, the scale can be calibrated to display accurate weights at any suspension load. QuickLoad accuracy is not affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity and is easy to operate, install, and calibrate. All Air-Weigh on-board scales, including QuickLoad, feature a patented dual-point calibration system. Coupled with several unique proprietary technologies, this allows customers to accurately know their specific axle group weights at the loading site. Air-Weigh eliminates weightrelated costs including fees, time, out-of-route kilometers, fuel, overweight fines, and delays in truck stops. QuickLoad scales are priced at the entry level of the market. Product deliveries are scheduled to begin in April 2008.

Air-Weigh Makes On-Board Scales Smarter Than Ever

23/10/07

Eugene, OR – Air-Weigh unveiled a new in-cab electronic scale. The new scale, named LoadMaxx™, incorporates stateof- the-art hardware and software technology packaged in a new Air-Weigh ComLink hardware device. The Air-Weigh LoadMaxx™ Scale offers innovative and exciting features including an interface to J1939 / CAN bus, two programmable weight alarm outputs, an interface to an inclinometer, and enhanced self test diagnostics.

The J1939 / CAN bus interface allows dash displays and on-board computers to easily obtain weight information for wireless transmission to fleet headquarters or for viewing by the driver in the cab. Two alarm outputs can be used to warn the driver when an axle group weight or GVW
exceeds legal limits.


Parking on an incline can result in uneven pressure on a vehicle’s suspension, which affects the accuracy of a scale reading. With the inclinometer option for LoadMaxx™, the weight display, J1939 outputs, and alarm outputs, are turned off when detecting an incline that will affect weight reading accuracy.

The Air-Weigh LoadMaxx™ scale is available with or without an optional Air-Weigh display device. Weight information consisting of steer axle weight, drive axle weight, gross vehicle weight, and payload weight, is displayed on the optional display. The weight information may also be transferred to an on-board computer for display and use by other vehicle applications.

The LoadMaxx™ on-board scale converts tractor and trailer suspension loads to an accurate on-the-ground weight. By comparing empty and heavy axle group weights with empty and heavy suspension loads, the scale can be calibrated to display accurate weights with any load. LoadMaxx™ accuracy is not affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity and is easy to operate, install, and calibrate. All Air-Weigh on-board scales, including LoadMaxx™, feature a patented dual-point calibration system, automatic trailer scale to tractor scale communication, and, coupled with several unique proprietary technologies, allow customers to accurately know their specific axle group weights at the loading site. Air-Weigh eliminates weight-related costs including fees, time, out-of-route miles, fuel, overweight fines, and delays in truck stops. Air-Weigh products are used by fleets worldwide and are available as a factory option through major tractor and trailer OEMs. LoadMaxx™ is currently being beta-tested at several fleets and OEMs. Product deliveries are scheduled to begin in late 2007.
