Deflection Transducer System Onboard Scales for Straight Body Trucks

Accurate and reliable payload measurement is an important element of profitability and operating safety in bulk hauling. Whether for municipal, county, state or private operations, Vulcan on-board scale systems allow optimum, safe use of a truck’s payload capacity-both for maximizing loads and preventing the liabilities of overloading.

The Vulcan Deflection transducer can be installed on several types of truck and trailer suspension components including: steel walking beams, front axles, and thru-trunnions including Mack camel back suspensions.  The transducers mount directly on suspension components, measure the component deflection, and convert the deflection into a corresponding weight.  Deflection transducers can also be placed on load carrying members to provide solutions for other on-board weighing and custom applications.
  • Easy to install - mounts on vehicle suspension components or load carrying members
  • Easy to operate using proven Vulcan electronics
  • Eliminate overweight fines
  • Monitor loading or unloading of weights at remote locations
  • Save time loading, weighing and adjusting the load
  • Reduce time and mileage by minimizing trips to commercial scale
  • Reduce maintenance costs by not overloading the vehicle
  • Prevent hauling freight in excess of contracted weight
Deflection Transducer System Accuracy: Typically +/- 2-3% of full scale load.

No more Overweight Fines: The expense of operating overloaded is already prohibitive in many regions and is becoming a serious issue nationwide. Enforcement is increasing and penalties are becoming more costly.

Eliminate Legal Liabilities: The potential costs to a hauler from lawsuits resulting from an accident involving an overloaded truck can be severe.

Ensure Operating Safety: Overloaded trucks have significantly impaired braking distances and cornering abilities, and are more likely to experience premature failures of truck components.

Cut Maintenance Costs: Hauling legal payloads reduces maintenance expense on springs, brakes and tires, and increases the operating lifetime of the truck and body.

Increase Driver Efficiency: Our on-board scales give your drivers the assurance of hauling legal. With scales, drivers finish trips more efficiently and faster with full, legal loads.

Installation times are estimates on first time installations only. Actual installation times are dependent on the skill level of the mechanic and number of mechanics, shop equipment, on the need to possibly relocate other equipment on the truck or trailer.
Deflection Sensors on Hendrickson 462/463 and Haulmaxx Equalizing Suspension Beams (Includes Models HN 402, HN 462, HN FR, RT 463, RTE 463, HMX and HMX 400.)
For the best scale system accuracy, one sensor should be mounted on the forward arm of one suspension beam. The other sensor should be mounted on the rear arm on the opposite beam, as shown in drawing.
