TruckWeight Inc's new Smart Sensor extends the wireless range of its Smart Scale onboard weigh scale to as much as 500 feet.

Designed for trucks, tractors, and trailers with air suspensions, the Smart Scale is for truck owners and operators who demand fast, precise axle weight readings. The Smart Sensor and wireless reader let measurements be taken where it's convenient and safe, whether in the truck cab or on the loading machine.

Smart Sensor measures temperature and pressure changes in a vehicle's air suspension and wirelessly relays this data to a handheld receiver using a low-powered radio transmitter. A small computer in the handheld receiver interprets the information and provides an axle weight and gross vehicle weight measurement accurate to within 150 pounds. It produces readings once per minute, and every three seconds when the sensors detect the truck being loaded.

The result is an axle weight and gross vehicle weight measurement within 0.3% of the actual gross vehicle weight.

The new sensor uses AA batteries for power, and the sleek new anodized-aluminum housing design makes it easy to mount anywhere on the vehicle without a mounting bracket.
