VanWeigh makes sure you don’t overload your van

A new generation of VanWeigh, launched by VPG Onboard Weighing, helps drivers ensure their vans aren’t overloaded.

The latest VanWeigh axle overload monitoring system is designed to fit any light commercial twin axle vehicle with standard coil or leaf spring suspension or air suspension.

Gross vehicle weight (GVW) and per axle load information is displayed to the driver on an easy-to-use colour touchscreen and its telematics output connects to GPS tracking systems.

This second generation VanWeigh system, available in easy-to-install retrofit or OEM configurations, has no moving parts and is not susceptible to wear and tear or slipping out of calibration. It features solid-state sensors that monitor the deflection in the springs, complies with UNECE Regulation 10.05 on electromagnetic compatibility, and is four times more accurate than the original VanWeigh technology (measuring 80 increments for every one degree of deflection, up from the current system which measures 20 increments).
