Weighbridge Controls: Protecting the Integrity of your Weighbridge

When purchasing a weighbridge there are a host of weighbridge options you may wish to consider, particularly if your site is unmanned. These weighbridge add-ons not only cut down the man hours it takes to look after your system, but also improve your weighbridge integrity and can prevent weighbridge fraud

Additional weighbridge controls can be used as stand-alone options, or as a complete package. Each additional piece of weighbridge protection will raise the integrity of your weighbridge and improve your site security and efficiency.

From simple touch-screen driver operated consoles to automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), our weighbridge systems can help keep the throughput and profitability of your site to a maximum.

1. Touch Screen Driver Operated Console (DOC)

A weighbridge driver operated console enables the driver to complete weighing transactions 24/7, allowing your weighbridge to run smoothly without a dedicated operator. Our touch-screen DOC’s are simple and intuitive to use and can be paired with proximity readers to automatically identify the driver or vehicle from long or short range.

2. Traffic Barriers & Safety Loops

Weighbridge traffic barriers help to control the flow of vehicles on and off the weighbridge, while the safety loops ensure the barriers raise and lower correctly.

3. Vehicle Detection Loops

Weighbridge detection loops sense the approaching vehicle and control other add-ons such as traffic lights to regulate the flow of vehicles. They also ensure the weighbridge is at ‘zero’ weight prior to weighing.

4. Weighbridge

The weighbridge can be installed in a pit or above ground, either on a concrete slab or piers, all depending on the environment in which it will be used.

5. Weighbridge Guide Rails

Weighbridge guide rails protect the vehicles from accidental drive-offs.

6. Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

Automatic number plate recognition is used to detect the vehicle registration as it approaches the weighbridge.

7. Traffic Lights

Weighbridge traffic lights control and direct the vehicle movement onto the weighbridge.

8. Remote Displays

Remote displays are ideal for showing high visibility scale weight reading at considerable distances.

9. Vehicle Position Sensors

Weighbridge vehicle positioning sensors ensure that the vehicle is located correctly on the weighbridge. They are ideal for ensuring the entire vehicle is on the bridge when it is weighed.

10. Video Surveillance

Weighbridge video surveillance deters site vandalism and allows remote viewing of the weighbridge and the vehicles using it.

11. Wind / Solar Energy

Some weighbridge operators are choosing to power their site through green energy. Avery Weigh-Tronix weighbridge solutions are compatible with these energy sources, and can supply systems powered by wind or solar energy.

12. Weighbridge Software

Avery Weigh-Tronix weighbridge software provides a data management solution for either single or multi-site operations. The software can be stand alone or integrated into the plant enterprise system.
