Axle Load Indicators
Basic Overload Protection – designed to give a warning of ‘approaching’ and ‘exceeded’ legal load limits on individual axles and Gross Vehicle Weight. Using spring deflection, it is usually not as accurate as loadcell based systems, but still falls well within the guidelines for DVSA enforcement of overload prosecutions. These are the most common form of system suitable for commercial vehicles.
Axle Load Indication is easily retrofitable, but as with all types of systems does require occasional calibration to ensure it retains the best possible accuracy.
