Onboard Axle Load Indicator

Multi-drop loads, with their constantly changing weight distribution can easily catch drivers out leaving them at risk of an axle overload.

Axtec OnBoard axle load indicators solve this problem.

Constantly displaying axle and gross weights, enabling drivers to distribute their loads safely and legally at all times.

From light vans to 32-tonners, the simple colour-coded display has no manual controls which means no driver training and nothing for them to break.

Optional outputs are available to vehicle tracking systems, and data storage.

Since their formation in 1991, Axtec, a privately owned and managed, UK based world leader in axle weighing and load monitoring solutions have gone from strength to strength by offering innovative products backed by unrivalled service. Having formed a strategic partnership with Transport Waste Solutions Australia, Axtec products are currently utilised in helping several state utility companies meet their Chain of Responsibility obligations, by providing accurate and reliable vehicle load information in real-time as vehicles perform their day-to-day operations.

Changes to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws, which aligned them more closely with workplace health and safety laws, were introduced on 1 October 2018. COR is intended to make sure that everyone in the supply chain shares responsibility for ensuring compliance with the law. As a consequence, everyone named as a party in the chain of responsibility who exercises (or has the capability of exercising) control or influence over any transport task, has an interest in making sure that every vehicle that leaves the depot is compliant with all legislation, including the various HVNL Mass Limits

Axtec’s first product was a dynamic axle weighbridge which is used by agricultural, distribution, transport and waste management companies to maximise their loads whilst ensuring they operate within the law. As it is certified for commercial, public and enforcement use, it is also used by the governmental agencies responsible for enforcing those laws.  Axtec’s dynamic weighbridge will fully automatically weigh all road-going vehicles, including abnormal loads, as they drive over it, and determine both individual axle and gross vehicle loads. A 6-axle articulated lorry can be weighed in under 40 seconds.

The innovative Axtec OnBoard Axle Load Indicator was introduced in 2007 and is used to provide real-time information to the drivers of thousands of vehicles from 3.5t van-based derivatives through to 26t and 32t rigids.

Axtec OnBoard provides the driver with information on axle and gross vehicle loads via a very simple, easy to read, colour coded bar graph display. Visual and audible warnings can prompt the driver when overloads are present, whilst load data can be simultaneously written to the built-in logger and transmitted to a tracker system. The colour touch screen can automatically display images from rear-view or side-mounted cameras and can be set to dim when the vehicle is in motion. All of these functions take place with absolutely no input from the driver, so he is not unnecessarily distracted and can focus on his daily tasks.
