An Iveco road coach was recently fitted with onboard scales supplied by Accuweigh to eliminate instances of accidental overloading which could be caused by excessive passenger and luggage weights.
Iveco partnered with Accuweigh to supply and install the onboard scales to ensure the coach driver can be aware of the coach weight at all times.
The lack of onboard scales posed several issues for the coach driver and operator. Without them, both could have been liable to rigidly enforced RTA vehicle overloading fines.
In addition, if the vehicle was involved in an accident while being operated in an overloaded condition, the operator’s client’s insurance could have been voided.
To allay these concerns, Accuweigh's Sydney branch fitted onboard scales manufactured by PM Onboard in the UK to the coach’s air suspension weighing system.
The 1155 airbag onboard scales employ the latest CanBus communication technology for transmitting the weight data between the air bag sensors and the digital weight indicator.
