High Speed Weigh-in-Motion

TDC’s HI-TRAC® range of high speed WIM systems are installed along highways to weigh vehicles at normal highway speeds (20-120kph) and detect, count and classify vehicles from 5kph-200kph. They can achieve accuracies from COST 323 Class A(5) +/-5% Gross Weight to COST 323 Class C(15) +/-15% Gross Weight at 95% confidence depending on requirements.

The HI-TRAC® EMU3 WIM & Classification System

The EMU3 is both a highly accurate Weigh-in-Motion and a real-time Vehicle Classification System that uses low-cost renewable energy supplies. This makes the location of roadside installation flexible rather than being dictated by the availability of power supply connections. Its integrated communications module with GPS and unique sensor interface card enable accurate vehicle, Weigh-in-Motion and classification data to be sent in real time every five minutes from the roadside to the command centre. In practice, the system is able to operate wherever a mobile phone service is available, and can record motorcycles at the same time as weighing a Heavy Goods Vehicle.

The HI-TRAC® 100+ WIM

This system can connect to eight lanes of WIM sensors and has a long and excellent track record. This is being used in Saudi Arabia to help the Ministry of Transport protect their bridges and highways from the damage caused by overloaded vehicles (see case studies for more info). TDC has integrated Kistler Lineas® Quartz WIM Sensors with the HI-TRAC® 100+ WIM/ANPR System to provide the accuracy needed to identify and weigh vehicles within very high enforcement tolerances.

Low Speed Weigh-in-Motion

The LO-TRAC® 300 system is a configurable multi-function Vehicle Axle Weighing System. It provides a means of measuring axle and gross vehicle weights either statically or dynamically, providing either enforcement of vehicle weight limits for government authorities or overload prevention for transport companies.

The LO-TRAC® 300 is designed to be configurable and can be supplied as a basic control unit interfacing to the TDC Axle Weigh Beam WB40L providing axle weight and gross weight data, with the option to supply additional interfaces to provide full vehicle weight enforcement functions.

If a desktop computer is connected, LO-WEIGH 100 Windows® software is available to provide a graphical interface to the operator to enable functions for printing user-specified weight tickets, recording data, and generating reports. The design of the LO-TRAC® 300 enables easy system upgrades.

Software

LO-WEIGH 100 SOFTWARE

LO-WEIGH 100 is Windows based and is available for Windows 98 / ME / 2000 / XP.

LO-WEIGH 100 is a powerful software package providing a user-friendly, graphical, interface to the operator using the LO-TRAC 100 or LO-TRAC 200 axle weighing systems.

The software allows the operator to weigh the vehicle in an axle-by-axle static mode or in a weigh-in-motion dynamic mode. Individual axle weight data appears on-screen as each axle is weighed and the gross vehicle weight is displayed automatically at the end of the weighing process.
