Vulcan Refuse Front Loader Truck Scales

 

System Accuracy: Typically
+/- 1% of full scale load or better.
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.
Vulcan On-Board Scales can be installed on all types of vehicles including, hook lifts, logging trucks, flatbed trailers, chip trailers, front loaders, rear loaders, side loaders, roll-offs, transfer trailers, and many other commercial vehicles requiring scales. Axle group weights, payload weights, gross vehicle weights, and individual pick-up and drop-off weights can be measured using the Vulcan On-Board Scale System.
The Vulcan On-Board Scale System consists of:
• Load Cells or Air Sensors - to sense load or air pressure.
• VSL Vulcoders - to convert the signals from the sensors to weight and communicate with the meter.
• V600 Meter - to display the weights and run the scale system.
The number of VSL Vulcoders needed depends on the number of channels required. The number and type of load cells needed depends on the truck's configuration, such as length, type of suspension, load capacity, etc. Only one V600 Meter is required per truck.
The new Vulcan Single Line (VSL) technology is a revolutionary way that the V600 Meter communicates with each VSL Vulcoder. VSL technology uses a single 2-wire cable to provide the communications between the meter and VSL Vulcoders. The single 2-wire communication cable sends power and set-up data to each VSL Vulcoder while receiving weight data from each VSL Vulcoder.
Important Notice for Front Loader Refuse Truck Operators using load cells to support the body:
To avoid weight measurement errors, the forks must be in the down position and the body lift cylinder pressure must be relieved at the time of measuring for all methods. The pressure relief valve should be engaged during weight measurements. If the truck is not equipped with a pressure relief valve, relieve the pressure manually. In addition, all packing should be done after the weight is recorded.
System Accuracy: Typically +/- 1% of full scale load or better.
Digital Graduations: 10, 20, 50 100 or 200 lbs/kgs
Displays: Total Truck Gross Weight, Net Payload Weight, Steering Axle Weight, Drive Axle Weight.
Note Displays: For other configurations, the channel weight may not be the actual axle group weights because some of the load is being shared by other axles. For short log and refuse trucks, the scales can indicate a weight on an axle group that should not be exceeded in order to keep the truck legal. Load the truck close to the legal maximum according to a certified platform scale. The number displayed on the channel of the meter corresponding to the axle group represents an approximate rear axle group weight and may be used as a reference weight to avoid exceeding the legal limit. This reference weight may be different from the weight shown on the certified platform scale display. Note: Channel "A" does not represent the steering axle weight when fully loaded.

The Vulcan V600 Electronics System combines the most advanced electronics with a user-friendly operation. Works with existing Vulcan load cells and sensors. Ideal for applications requiring more than two channels, set points, recording weight information, interface to on-board printers and computers, or operators who wish to mix tractors and trailers.
  • Easy to Calibrate
  • Uses Vulcan Single Line (VSL) technology
  • Unlimited mixing of trucks and trailers without any adjustment, just plug in and go
  • Handles up to 6 channels
  • Adjustable cycle time (between channels)
  • Brilliant display - large, red LEDs with 4 brightness setting for easy viewing inside/outside the cab
  • 16-character, LED, dot-matrix secondary display for user-friendly meter interface
  • Simple operation with auto-calibrate feature
  • Lockout feature allows full operation of scales while safeguarding against accidental changing of calibration settings
  • Reduced wiring - a single 2 wire cable provides power and communication for all channels
  • Printer interface with date and time
  • Set points with relay drivers to control lights and alarms
  • Interface to on-board computers
  • Configurable for custom applications including weigh-in-motion
  • Can capture up to 2000 events including date, time, and weight for down loading (depending on application)
  • RS-232 port

R-506 Manual Front Fork Scale System
The unique Vulcan manual front fork scale system fits all types of front end loaders for refuse applications. The rugged, bolt-on weight sensing forks replace the truck's existing forks. The V600 electronics displays individual bin weights and total net payload weight. It can record up to 1,500 events including: date, time, stop number, pick-up weight and exceptions. Bin weight measurements are initiated by the driver pressing the control button. This system is ideal for audit applications when some or all containers are weighed.
Ship Wt: 500 lbs.  Estimated install time: 16 to 20 HOURS

R-516 Weigh-In-Motion / Static Front Fork Scale System
The unique Vulcan weigh-in-motion / static front fork scale system fits all types of front end loaders for refuse applications. The rugged, bolt-on weight sensing forks replace the truck's existing forks. The V600 electronics displays individual bin weights and total net payload weight. It can record up to 1,500 events including: date, time, stop number, pick-up weight and exceptions. Bin weight measurements are automatically initiated by a proximity switch.
Ship Wt: 500 lbs.  Estimated install time: 16 to 20 HOURS

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.
