Accuweigh’s Brisbane branch have recently fitted truck overload monitoring systems to two tipper trucks for the Brisbane City Council (BCC). The truck overload monitoring systems ensures truck drivers can accurately monitor the loaded weight of the truck to comply with recent chain of responsibility requirements.
Accuweigh’s onboard weighing system use two PM Onboard heavy duty loadcells fitted under the hinges of the tipper with a pressure transducer fitted into the tippers hydraulic ram. This load cell and transducer combination achieves accuracy and repeatability. It is a cost effective solution to alleviate potential overloading on tipper trucks.
The tipper trucks were supplied by Brisbane Isuzu with the truck overload monitoring systems fitted prior to delivery of the trucks to BCC. The onboard weighing equipment installation was straightforward with approximately one day required to complete each install, including full testing and calibration.
