What is onboard weighing?

        • Measuring the weight of a load while it’s on a vehicle, such as a tipper truck, tanker, or bin lorry, is known as on-board weighing. This is accomplished using load cells, which monitor the load applied to the vehicle and determine the weight of what is carried, hence the name “on-board weighing.”

Areas of application

        • Logistic companies.
        • Waste collection.
        • Raw materials collection.
        • Farm produce- milk tankers, avocado trucks.
        • Petroleum products, petrol, diesel, LPG.
        • Gas and chemicals.
        • Building materials.
        • Scrap materials.

Key features

        • Real-time weight monitoring
        • GPS-based location tracking
        • Compliance with regulations and standards
        • Load capacity management
        • Driver behavior monitoring
        • Cumulative weight check
        • Abnormality alerts- email, SMS, alarms
        • Record keeping
        • User-friendly interface
        • Integration with other systems
        • Customizable alerts and reporting
        • Data storage and retrieval
        • Wireless connectivity

Advantages of onboard weighing, why onboard weighing?

        • Onboard weighing helps in monitoring real time weight of the vehicle’s content hence reduces chances of ‘content manipulation’. –spillage, theft, fraud.
        • Helps in monitoring of real time location of the vehicle.
        • Helps the operator to work within the vehicle’s loading capacities to avoid conflicting with authorities as well as maintaining good health of the vehicle.
        • Helps in monitoring drivers’ behaviors – Time management, routes management, unauthorized loading and offloading.
        • Onboard weighing also acts as a cumulative weight check- weighing platform just like a weighbridge.
        • Abnormalities alert.
        • Record keeping.
        • Customer satisfaction.

Why choose onboard weighing over the other systems of weighing?

Onboard weighing systems (weighing systems built into vehicles) have several advantages over other weighing methods:

        • Convenience: Onboard weighing systems eliminate the need to travel to a separate weighing facility.
        • Speed: The process of weighing a vehicle with an onboard system is quicker than with other methods.
        • Increased accuracy: Onboard systems use sophisticated sensors and algorithms to provide accurate weight readings, even when the vehicle is in motion.
        • Cost-effectiveness: Onboard weighing systems can save time and money compared to other methods, such as taking a vehicle to a weighbridge.
        • Improved safety.
        • Real-time data: Onboard systems provide real-time data that can be used for analysis and decision-making.
