How many times have you seen overloaded vehicles on roads and wondered about the safety of road users and the damage they cause to roads? Overloaded vehicles reduce the life of roads. They can also cause accidents or lead to traffic jams. To reduce overloading of vehicles, road authorities enforce charges for overloading. Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) is extremely useful to ensure safety and aid road-making/maintenance companies to identify overloaded commercial vehicles and charge them penalty as applicable.
Rajdeep Info Techno Pvt Ltd’s Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) system is designed to capture and record axle weights and gross vehicle weights of vehicles as they drive over a measurement platform. Since the vehicle doesn’t need to come to a complete halt, like in static scales, the process is quicker and saves you time.
WIM is installed at toll plazas to determine the weight of moving vehicles up to a maximum speed of 20 km per hour and does not require them to halt.
The WIM system has the following components:
- Weighing Scale Platform: Made of carbon steel Q23B, the platform is super strong and easy to service and maintain. It measures individual axle weight along with the gross vehicle weight (GVW). Our WIM platform complies to all requirements of the BIS 2016 standard. It is duly tested against the BIS 2062 standard from NABL-accredited laboratory and Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).
- Load Cell: This compression type load cell ensures high accuracy. It is constructed with stainless steel, is hermetically welded, oil- proof, waterproof, anti-corrosive gas medium,and is also protected from lightning, It works efficiently in all kinds of environments. It is CE certified (acclaimed CE,OMIL R60 standard).
- Weighing Indicator: This easy-to-calibrate component indicates the axle weight, the GVW and the vehicle speed. It has a bi-directional detection function (can detect whether the vehicle is moving forward or reverse), unique speed compensation for higher accuracy and is password-protected.
- Junction Box: The junction box has inbuilt surge protection and with an IP 68 rating, the box is water-resistant and well-protected from dust, dirt sand and does not really require protective gear.
