How Portable Weigh Scales Work
Portable weigh pads are low profile truck scale systems that have a simple flat surface weighing platform in which trucks drive over to calculate the load weight. When trucks drive on to these surfaces it displays and records the weight on a remote terminal.
At the core of each of these pads is a highly sensitive truck scale load cell. This load cell measures the weight and transmits the data to a remote terminal through a physically connected cable. These load cells are protected by durable casing and has two ramps on each side. The ramps make it easier for the trucks to carefully drive on to the middle of portable truck weigh scales. This why this form of truck scale is often called a portable wheel weigher system.
In order to measure the gross weight of a truck, all the axles need to be measured separately. Once the terminal records the weight of the axles, a simple addition gives out the total gross weight of the vehicle. A farmer who already knows the empty weight of the truck, its easy to calculate the net weight of the goods carried. We offer Truck weigh scales for sale.
