Air-Weigh says its new in-cab display option for the LoadMaxx series of truck and tractor scales includes all standard features in a small rectangular package that’s just 1.8 x 3.3 in., or about the size of a credit card, and only 0.8 in. thick. It can be mounted on any flat surface with permanent adhesive tape. This makes it ideal for quick retrofits or vehicles where mounting the original round gauge display in the dash is not practical. An optional dash swivel mount is also offered.
The LoadMaxx converts tractor and trailer suspension loads to an accurate on-the-ground weight. Unlike air gauges or other air-gauge-based load indicators, the company says this scale uses true digital two-point calibration to compute and display weight for steer, drive, and trailer axles. Accuracy isn’t affected by altitude, temperature, or humidity and the scale is easy to install and operate, says Air-Weigh. Programmable alarm outputs that indicate warning weights and overweight on any axle or GVW are standard. Fleets may also integrate their on-board computer to LoadMaxx via J1939, J1708, or RS-232 to monitor, record, and transmit vehicle weights.
