Thames Side Sensors central to vehicle weighing.
In a close working relationship developed over
eighteen years, Thames Side Sensors has provided
Central Weighing with a range of bespoke load cell
solutions which are incorporated into the company's
vehicle weighing systems.
Thames Side Sensors has supplied over 10,000 load cells to
Central Weighing which have enabled the company to keep at
the forefront of axle weighing technology.
Central Weighing is one of the world's largest manufacturers of
specialist truck weigh-in-motion systems, used for law enforcement
and fleet management applications. The company's Supaweigh
dynamic "In Motion" axle weighbridge incorporates four 10,000kg
stainless steel, fully welded T95 load cells. These are fitted into a
unique tension loading assembly, developed by Thames Side-Maywood
in conjunction with Central Weighing, which gives optimum weighing
results under harsh conditions.
The fully welded version of the T95 is manufactured from 17/4 PH
stainless steel and is hermetically sealed to IP68. The unique
design of the load cell allows the loading assembly to be used in
compression whilst keeping the load cell itself in tension, ensuring
that weighing accuracy and reliability are maintained at all times,
even when the assembly is subject to considerable movement or
The Supaweigh axle weighbridge enables all types of vehicles to
be weighed quickly and accurately. The Supaweigh system was
the first to gain both EU O.I.M.L. and UK approvals for Trade Use
setting the standard for weigh-in-motion systems worldwide.
In a recent export contract Central Weighing supplied over twenty
systems to Syria for law enforcement, to prevent overloading of
the country's roads.
