Plug-and-Weigh™ weighbridge installed at Royal Air Force site in UK
13th September 2006
A large digital Plug-and-Weigh™ weighbridge has been installed at RAF Brize Norton in UK. This weighbridge not only weighs each axle of a vehicle as it comes onto the weighbridge but also automatically calculates the position of the centre of weight of the vehicle and total vehicle weight, giving important management information for the loading of military vehicles into aircraft. The system uses a special piece of software which reads each Weightel™ digital load cell individually to calculate the centre of weight when the vehicle is fully on the weighbridge. Without the digital load cells this calculation would have proved to be impossible.
