WWSB ANALOGUE AXLE PAD

Description

“WWSB” AXLE PADS

Platforms designed for creating weighing stations for small sized vehicles (automobiles, carts, vans, etc.); particularly accurate and sturdy.

CASED INDICATOR FOR EXAMPLE PURPOSES ONLY.

FEATURES

  • Platform dimensions: 400x410mm. Height 58mm. Weight approximately 14,5kg.
  • Loading surface: 400x300mm.
  • Very handy.
  • Sturdy structure, made with special aluminium, which guarantees lightness and makes these suitable also for harsh working conditions.
  • Cable with quick connector, platform side.
  • 10m cable for connecting the platform to the indicator, complete of connector.
  • IP67 nickel-plated steel loading cells.
  • IP68 stainless steel load cells, in the WWSB versions with 6t and 8t capacity.
  • Hermetic junction box with IP68 protection degree.
  • Special vulcanised nonslip rubber applied under the platform, for good grip on all types of surfaces.
  • Extremely simple and reliable connection of the scale to the weight indicator.
  • The WWS platforms are patented; the number is 1.342.302.
  • Availables in legal for trade approved version.
  • Availables in high resolution version.
  • Availables upon price estimate in Atex version for 1&21 e 2&22 zones.

NOTES ABOUT THE CE-M LEGAL FOR TRADE APPROVED VERSIONS

  • The platforms are for legal for trade use:
    – In the single-platform systems, not used to weigh vehicles.
    – In the wheel weighing systems in which the number of platforms is equal to the number of vehicle wheels.
    – In the axle weighing systems composed of one or more multiples of WWS platforms, except possible limitations of use for some European States.
  • The CE-M legal for trade divisions indicated in the “version” table are available with ECEM option. ECEM option is needed for each legal for trade platform of the system.
  • Legal for trade systems with more than one WWS, are fitted with the approval of the weight sum and related division:
    Exemple for a 4 pads system
    Single CE-M Platform: Max=1500kg and e=0,5kg
    CE-M SUM: Max=6000kg and e=2kg

AXLE WEIGHING SYSTEM INSTALLATION: USEFUL INFORMATION

RULES FOR AN OPTIMAL INSTALLATION OF THE SYSTEM

    1. The resting surface below the modules should be coplanar and well levelled; this surface should have a hardness of at least 100 kg/cm2 (usual value for the reinforced concrete).
      NOTE: a too high inclination can sensibly lessen the precision of the system.
    2. In the axle weighing, create a well levelled area and then the weighing pads, with a suitable length.
    3. The bottom beneath the weighing area must sustain, without sinking, concentrated loads equal to at least 1,5 times the maximum capacity of the module.
    4. The weighing performance can be influenced by the type of weighed vehicle and the status in which it is maintained.
    5. In the axle weighing it’s advisable to not weigh vehicles which transport liquids.
    6. Once the system is optimised, it is advisable to maintain always the same direction.

WHEN CREATING A LEVELLED AREA BEFORE AND AFTER THE PADS, IN THE AXLE WEIGHING APPLICATIONS

  • The levelled area is necessary when one needs to weigh vehicles with more than two axles. In any case, these are advised in all the axle weighing applications, in order to guarantee better performance. To create the levelled area the levelling modules WWSLM (WWSD/WWSE) or the frame for the pads flush floor installation WWSCTF (WWSC), WWSDTF (WWSD) and WWSETF (WWSE) are available.

CHOICE OF THE LENGTH OF THE LEVELLING AREA

  • The advisable minimum length of the area depends on the vehicle type, for example for a vehicle with 5 axles the length is 3.5m before and after the pads, in order to simultaneously maintain at the same level all the axles of the truck and of the trailer.NOTES: The best weighing condition is obtained by creating a levelling area of a length equal to double that of the longest vehicle to be weighed.
RULES FOR AN OPTIMAL USE OF AXLE WEIGHING IN STATIC MODE
    1. The vehicle wheels must be positioned correctly within the guiding bands, avoiding to touch the area around the loading surface.
    2. Once the vehicle is positioned, release the brake and turn off the motor.
    3. Carry out the necessary weighing operations.
    4. It is advisable to not weigh vehicles which have flat tyres.
RULES FOR AN OPTIMAL USE OF THE AXLE WEIGHING SYSTEM IN DYNAMIC MODE
    1. Transit at the lowest and most constant possible speed (5 km/h), avoiding braking while weighing.
    2. It is advisable to not weigh vehicles which have flat tyres.
