Air-Weigh Receives Australian TCA’s Certification for LoadMaxx Scale
Eugene, Oregon, USA – April 12th, 2019 – Air-Weigh, the global leader in electronic on-board weighing technology, announced that its LoadMaxx scale has received the On-Board Mass (OBM) System Type Approval from Transport Certification Australia (TCA). Following a complex and detailed approval process, Air-Weigh becomes one of only three scale manufacturers in the world to receive this certification.
Air-Weigh has been serving the transportation industry since 1987 and its continued innovation in providing weight data to telematics solutions makes them a natural fit for receiving the TCA type-approval in Australia. E-Max, Air-Weigh’s longtime distribution partner in Australia collaborated in obtaining the OBM System, Type A certification for electronically displaying mass information to drivers and/or loaders.
The Intelligent Access Program (IAP) is a national initiative overseen by TCA which uses satellite tracking, wireless communication technology and telematics to remotely monitor where, when and how heavy vehicles are being operated on the road network. With this data, IAP allows heavy vehicles improved access to the Australian road network in return for monitoring compliance with specific access conditions.
“Our focus is on efficiencies for fleet managers and the ability to expand those capabilities with more data.” Said Bob Zirlin, Air-Weigh’s Director of Business Development. “The independently assessed TCA type-approval provides our Australian customers with a high level of confidence in LoadMaxx performance. We are delighted to be part of a program that supports productivity gains for participating fleets.”
The type-approval requires compliance to accuracy, reliability and robustness standards. Air-Weigh’s LoadMaxx scale has become an industry standard and features accurate measurement of steer, drive, trailer, GVW and Net Payload weights. Its dual point calibration with PIN protection along with the proprietary power line carrier communication protocol speaks to the security level requirements necessary for the TCA type-approval certification.
