Accuweigh’s Perth branch recently outfitted two Giacci Bros trucks and dog trailers with PM onboard AW11 airbag weighing systems for protection against axle overloading while hauling synthetic rutile from the Tiewest Chandala processing plant.
The PM onboard AW11 airbag weighing systems use the air sensor principle for measuring the load in air suspension systems on trucks and trailers.
The Giacci trucks are also fitted with PM’s AW11 airbag weighing systems using wireless transmission modules that eliminate the need for running airlines or data cables the entire length of the truck and trailer.
The wireless hand held control of the AW2 truck scales displays the individual weight readings of each axle group of the truck and dog trailer to the driver while the driver is outside the cab supervising loading.
Power to run the digital transmitters in these PM onboard AW11 airbag weighing systems comes from the lighting circuit used when the loading lights are activated. PM’s airbag weighing systems will be fitted to another four trucks and trailers of the Giacci Bros’ trucks.
