Air-Weigh has expanded its low-cost QuickLoad on-board line with the addition of a stand-alone trailer scale. The new model uses the company’s proven electronics, software and sensor technology packaged in an environmentally sealed enclosure.
The scale is designed to be mounted on the outside of any trailer and can be installed in about 20 minutes with either permanent adhesive or hidden through-bolts. It features an advanced graphics display with touch-screen technology and moulded electrical and air connections. The new design completely eliminates any openings in the enclosure for buttons, switches, panels, connectors or air fittings.
Other advanced features of the new scale include an icon-based touch-screen user interface for quick setup and simple operation, says Air-Weigh. In setup mode, easy-to-understand icons guide the user through initial installation and factory calibration. All of the scale’s other features and options are also easily accessed through the icon interface. In weight mode, large numbers that can easily be read from several feet away are shown on the backlit transflective display.
The QuickLoad trailer scale also features built-in warning weight and overweight alarm LEDs that shine forward, rearward and outward. The alarm LEDs can be set to flash at any warning weight, and then go solid at a programmable overweight threshold. More new features include built-in weight sensors for single and dual applications, a low-power battery mode for untethered applications, and an industry standard serial data interface that can be set to J1939 or RS485 protocols.
