Wheel loads, axle loads and total weights of a vehicle can be determined with the wheel load scales from OMEGA Waagen GmbH. The vehicle simply runs over the mobile modules and is dynamically weighed in the process.
Unlike some other manufacturers, it is not necessary to stop the vehicle on the scale. In addition to the wired, we also carry wireless wheel load scales with radio modules for the transmission of the measured values.
Weight determination by wheel load scale
The wheel load is determined when the wheel load scale is passed slowly. During the measurement, each module determines a single value. All knife harvests are then combined in the evaluation. In addition to the wheel load, the axle load and the total weight of the vehicle are also output.
The weight distribution on the individual platforms is not critical. If a platform is loaded more, this is represented by the higher wheel load. Weight distribution can play a crucial role in loading. Optimal loading can be guaranteed with the wheel load scales. The determination of the individual wheel loads makes this possible.
Versions of our mobile wheel load scales
We carry wheel load scales in different weight ranges and different dimensions. All weighing tasks can be solved with this. Cars, trucks, construction vehicles and agricultural vehicles can be weighed quickly and easily. The determination of the center of gravity is also possible using the individual weights. The following table shows the different sizes:
Weighing range up to
Wheel load scale RW-01
400 x 300 mm
Wheel load scale RW-02
500 x 400 mm
Wheel load scale RW-03
700 x 450 mm
Wheel load scale RW-04
900 x 500 mm
Wheel load scale RW-05
900 x 700 mm
Wheel load scale RW-06
560 x 400 mm
Wheel load scale RW-07
750 x 450 mm
Wheel load scale RW-08
950 x 500 mm
Exclusive to OMEGA:
Wheel load scale RW-10
1,250 x 900 mm
In particular, the RW-10 wheel load scale is only available from OMEGA Waagen GmbH. Designed for large agricultural vehicles, this platform was developed as a special solution for a manufacturer of harvesting vehicles. The determined weight is output directly on every digital platform. Optionally, it can also be transferred to the WA-08 evaluation. The WA-08 enables the evaluation of up to 8 platforms. The individual wheel load, the axle load and the total weight are shown on the touch display.
This shows a very big advantage of mobile scales compared to a fixed vehicle scale. The modules can be transported to different locations and deliver precise weights. Depending on the application, almost any number of platforms can be connected to an evaluation. The quick and easy change of location results in a wide range of applications. The wheel load or the drawbar load of a trailer can be determined with a single platform. If two platforms are used, the axle load can also be determined in addition to the wheel load.
The high mobility also allows other uses outside the vehicle area. Machines and systems often have to be weighed before loading. With the mobile modules, individual weights and total weights can be easily determined. These can then be used to determine the center of gravity.
Also note our remaining range of mobile scales for other areas of application. At OMEGA you can also get high quality bench scales, crane scales, pallet trucks with scales and lifting tables with scales. Feel free to contact our sales department at any time.
While vehicle scales are mostly calibrated according to class IIII, the mobile modules reach class III. This results in a significantly higher resolution. When using one platform per wheel, higher resolutions can be achieved. The individual weight is taken from each platform. Here's an example:
Ø Class IIII vehicle scale
Weighing range 40 t, calibration value 40 kg
Error limit up to 60 kg or 120 kg
Ø Class III wheel load scale
Weighing range per module 10 t, calibration value 5 kg
Error limit up to 7.5 kg or 15 kg
Due to a different calibration class, the mobile solution achieves significantly better results with every measurement. Both the calibration error limits and the traffic error limits are not related to each other.
The platforms are made from a specially hardened aluminum. Stainless steel load cells round off the high-quality use of materials. Due to the high material strength, it was not necessary to use additional stiffeners. This would significantly increase the dead weight and thus restrict mobility.
Degree of protection
The entire construction allows an IP68 version. This also enables permanent immersion. This is essential for predominant use outdoors. Wheel load scales and axle load scales are used almost exclusively outdoors and are delivered to the prevailing environmental conditions. A protection class lower than IP68 is therefore excluded from the intended use alone.
Accessories for wheel load scales
You can find high-quality accessories tailored to the requirements of use in our product range. This can compensate for unevenness in the subsurface, simplify use and make it even more efficient. If you have any questions about accessories, please contact our trained sales team.
Calibration, conformity assessment, calibration
The consistent implementation of our quality guidelines naturally allows ISO calibration and calibration according to DAkkS. Many of our wheel load scales are also approved for custody transfer. After the conformity assessment by the manufacturer, use in accordance with the measurement and calibration law is permitted.
If a conformity assessment (verification) has been commissioned, the balance may be used by you immediately on delivery in custody transfer. The only thing that needs to be considered is the notification requirement. On delivery, you will receive a notice of the obligation to notify with the pre-filled document for each delivered conformity-rated scale. The data only has to be transferred to the form and you as the user have complied with the legal requirements.
On our home page, we offer added value, which we would like to underline again here. In addition to the implementation of calibration or verification, we also offer measuring equipment monitoring for our customers. This allows you to concentrate on your core business. The measuring equipment list is kept by us and is permanently available for you to call up. We will inform you about upcoming examination dates in good time and we can carry out the tests for you on request. As a competent partner, we support you in all matters relating to calibration, verification and the subject of scales.
