Weigh-in-Motion Systems provide an important tool in commerce. Whether at the mine, on the road or across the country on rail, vehicle scales accurately determine the weights of transported commodities and finished goods.

If it weren’t for scales, how would you weigh items like a train locomotive, a tractor trailer or a plane that can weigh as much as 1.3 million pounds? Several types of truck in motion systems are available for use in the enforcement, monitoring and analysis of vehicles on the road. Motion truck offers a cost-effective solution to help contain infrastructure expenses by monitoring the weight of commercial vehicles as they travel over the highway. Truck in motion technology can measure the per-axle weight and gross weight of vehicles while they are travelling at highway speed. It detects axle-spacing so that vehicles can be identified by class, and also records the vehicle’s speed.

Weigh-in-Motion truck scales provide the ability to weigh large commerce objects in order to maintain compliance and ensure safety. METTLER TOLEDO manufactures a wide variety of truck scales designed to meet specific uses and performance requirements, while keeping roadways safe. Several types of Weigh-in-Motion Systems are available for use in the enforcement, monitoring and analysis of vehicles on the road. They offer a cost-effective solution to help contain infrastructure expenses by monitoring the weight of commercial vehicles as they travel.

How does a weigh in motion scale work?

These systems provide the ability to weigh a truck in motion in real-time. Weigh-in-Motion Systems include load cell platforms that weigh a tractor trailer at a particular location, such as a weigh station, or it may include quartz piezo sensors. At weigh stations, enforcement officers may track the trucks as they pass through the facility, for example. This enables weigh station operations to become more efficient because operators are able to sort out potential violators for static weighing and inspection, while permitting vehicles of legal weight to continue without interruption. Virtual Weigh-in-Motion technology can even be installed on routes that bypass weigh stations to help ensure that vehicle-load regulations are enforced. Traffic planning systems also use this type of technology to help monitor traffic. Weighing in motion involves the weighing of a motion truck.

When quartz piezo sensors are installed, Weigh in Motion Systems measure the per-axle weight and gross weight of vehicles as they travel at highway speed. This technology detects axle-spacing so that vehicles can be identified by class. It also records the vehicle’s speed. At the heart of the Weigh-in-Motion Systems' technology is the IND9W lane controller. This controller performs all command and communication functions to acquire and communicate data from the roadway weight and vehicle-position sensors. Its high-speed A/D converter ensures important information is captured quickly and accurately.

How often do trucks have to stop at weigh stations?
Weigh-in-motion or WIM scales can make weigh-station operation more efficient by sorting out potential violators for static weighing and inspection while permitting vehicles of legal weight to continue without interruption. Virtual WIM installations on routes that bypass weigh stations can help to ensure that vehicle load regulations are enforced, while traffic planning systems use WIM technology to monitor traffic. Local governments carry different laws pertaining to how often a truck must stop at a weigh station. To avoid any legal ramifications, check local laws. To install WIM scales in your region, contact METTLER TOLEDO.

What trucks must stop at weigh stations?
Local laws regulate which trucks must stop at weigh stations. When weighing is required, weigh-in-motion or WIM scales can make weigh-station operation more efficient. These specialized scales allow operators to sort out potential violators for static weighing and inspection, while trucks of legal weight continue without stopping. Virtual WIM installations that bypass weighing stations altogether can help ensure that load regulations are enforced, while WIM technology allows traffic planners to closely monitor traffic. To avoid any legal issues, check local laws in the areas you operate in. To have WIM scales installed in your area, contact your METTLER TOLEDO representative.

What happens if you don't stop at weigh stations?
WIM scales—also known as weigh-in-motion scales—make weigh-station processing more efficient. Potential violators can be sorted out for further inspection and static weighing, while vehicles of legal weight are able to continue without interruption. Virtual installations on routes bypassing weigh stations help to ensure that regulations regarding load weight are met. Traffic planners can also use WIM technology for traffic monitoring. Local governments keep different laws on the books with regards to vehicles that don't stop at a weigh station. To avoid legal issues, review your local laws. To install WIM scales, contact METTLER TOLEDO.
