About TradeRoute HL Onboard System Series:
TradeRoute works with many common straight-truck and trailer designs, but consult us here at the Precision Scales to see about your specific application as frame styles and axle configurations vary greatly. It uses a system of weigh modules that install around the truck frame. But what makes this system even more unique is the hydraulics. With TradeRoute, the load doesn’t rest on the load cells while the truck is in motion. TradeRoute can only be used while the vehicle is parked and the hydraulics engage the load cells. This prevents a lot of excess wear and tear on the load cells and greatly extends the life of your system.
TradeRoute systems include the weigh modules in addition to a stainless steel j-box, and a weatherproof control center that houses a 920i® indicator and Epson® TM-U295 ticket printer. By avoiding trips to a certified scale, imagine the driving time, fuel and vehicle wear savings from being able to buy and sell product directly to and from your payload. Then multiply that savings across an entire fleet of trucks. The 920i, customized for each application, records specific weight data from every stop and can then transmit that data back to a central office, eliminating a lot of paperwork and potential errors.
For a driver, knowing his or her truck weight at any given time can be critical. Like any onboard system, TradeRoute allows them to make the most of their capacity without going over, and avoid potential overload fines. Avoid a few of those tickets and an onboard system pays for itself pretty quickly.
