Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) vehicle scales offer a cost-effective means of measuring truck axle and gross weights without affecting the flow of traffic. WIM scales are routinely used in commercial weight enforcement to screen trucks entering a weigh station returning legally loaded vehicles back to the main roadway while directing over weight trucks to the static scales. In-motion scales are also used in Virtual Weigh Station applications to monitor traffic identifying
those vehicles with weight violations and sending their image and weight information wirelessly to an officer located downstream of the scale site. Still other in-motion vehicle scales are used to weigh bulk commodities where real time information on the flow of material is required.
Cardinal Scale offers a full line of in-motion vehicle scales utilizing strain gauge load cell, piezoelectric, and Kistler LINEAS® technologies. These scales meet or exceed ASTM E1318-02 performance requirements and can be used with a variety of peripherals like over-height detectors, off-scale sensors, image capture cameras, DOT and ALPR readers and others. Custom software allows the WIM-based
system to fit your exact requirements while modular hardware design ensures the ability to upgrade in the future. Cardinal Scale’s team of ITS professionals are ready to help you with your next project.
