On-Board weighing is a common application for load cells. On-board weighing can sometimes be referred to as an “overload protection system”
On-board weighing involves using load cells to monitor the load applied to a vehicle, commonly used for example on tipper trucks, tankers and bin lorries. The load cells will measure the weight of what is “on-board” hence the name. This enables the vehicle user to potentially load the vehicle to the maximum capacity without the danger of over-loading. It also means that accurately understanding what is added or offloaded allows the vehicle operator to calculate costs and charges accordingly, which in summary shows that by using load cells for on board weighing ensures that haulage companies operate at maximum efficiency without compromising safety.
On-board weighing has many benefits;
On-board weighing can be used anywhere where a load requires weighing on a vehicle, here are some other example applications;
All of these vehicles need to be loaded efficiently so that they carry just enough to make their journeys effective without compromising safety.
We have supplied many load cells which are used in on-board weighing systems and are happy to discuss opportunities for this type of application.
