This weighbridge with CCTV monitoring and intercom was installed to ensure trucks are correctly positioned on the weighbridge for weighing. These monitoring systems are necessary due to weighbridge office being positioned nearly 100 metres away from the weighbridge deck.
As this weighbridge is trade approved and used for weighing both incoming and outbound trucks, the CCTV cameras had to be fitted at both ends of the weighbridge deck. This was required to ensure the weighbridge operator has a clear and unobstructed view of truck positioning from either direction.
Intercoms are also fitted at both ends of the weighbridge to allow the weighbridge operator to communicate directly with truck drivers, without requiring either party to leave their posting. A separate monitor in the weighbridge office is used to display the camera images.
Due to the remote positioning of the weighbridge, away from available mains power, solar power systems were fitted to run the sensitive weighing electronics and monitoring systems, while the rest of the weighbridge office is powered from a local generator.
This weighbridge is also fitted with the Ticket Aid Pro+ Weighbridge Software Package from AASoftware to record all traffic movements over the weighbridge.
