Virtual Weigh Stations

With ever-increasing construction costs and the need to streamline and economize commercial weight enforcement, Cardinal offers a tool to do just that.  For less than the cost of one standard weigh station, you can install multiple virtual weigh stations to increase your level of commercial weight enforcement.  Using a Cardinal QWIM series high-speed in-motion vehicle scale, a high resolution camera, over height detector and cellular interface are added to form a complete virtual weigh station.  As the vehicle passes over the quartz sensor array, its image is captured along with its axle weights and speed.
