Accurate, reliable and maintenance free.
The WIM Tech Strip Sensor Scales are the ideal solution for roadways where there is limited room for access lanes and where site space restrictions prohibit the use of large-scale weighbridge equipment.
It only requires a small footprint compared to a conventional weighbridge and is perfect for compliance purposes, providing dynamic weighing at speeds of up to 100 km/h. Sets or rows of strain gauge load cell sensors are inserted into the road surface in a minimally invasive installation that requires only a 90mm deep trench, which can be applied to an existing roadway or new road base. Their insertion into the road surface itself means there are minimal installation costs, and they are maintenance free. Their simple installation method also significantly reduces downtime due to road closures.
Once installed, our Strip Sensor Scales use technology that takes full advantage of fast response times and large sampling rates to provide highly accurate weight measurements.
We also offer a relocatable version of the Strip Sensor Scales. The sensors are inserted into four precast concrete slabs along with the loop sensors. The control cabinet containing the CPU/PC along with the scoreboards is also positioned on a relocatable concrete slab.
The Strip Sensor scales solution offers International Organisation of legal Metrology (OIML) R134 Weigh in Motion certified for accuracy of 2-3%.
Portable, lightweight, compliance in minutes.
