5 accessories available for truck scales

Truck scales are integral to the trucking, transportation and shipping industries. They provide precise measurements on the go to maximize efficiency, ensure proper invoicing and help you adhere to regulations. To get the most out of your truck scales, make sure you have the right accessories. Here are five products for truck scales you may want to invest in.

1. Remote displays

A remote display allows drivers to view weight readings and messages at a distance in large LED letters. Certain remote displays can also be customized with red and green stop and go lights. Remote displays can be placed indoors or outdoors and either near to or far away from the scale.

Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. carries a range of top-quality remote displays. These products feature high-intensity LEDs that are easy to see in both foul weather and direct sunlight.

2. Automated ticketing kiosk

These state-of-the-art devices offer fully unattended or remotely attended ticketing and include advanced features such as vehicle recognition. Automated ticketing kiosks instantly print custom-formatted tickets for drivers at the end of a transaction and collect relevant weight data. The user-friendly interface integrates with your existing office and accounting system.

Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. offers custom automatic ticketing kiosk (ATK) systems with optional integrated accessories such as traffic lights and remote displays. The ATK systems we carry are designed to automate traffic flow, maximize productivity and reduce labour costs.

3. Data management software

Many companies decide to digitally collect weighing information for data analysis and other purposes. There’s data management software tailored to a wide range of industries, including transportation and shipping.

Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. offers a range of scale software options, including SMART1 programs, which allow users to design their own applications and tickets, as well as unattended vehicle software for automatic ticketing.

4. Side rails

Having guide rails alongside the scale helps ensure that trucks don’t drive off the edge, which can cause damage to the scale and truck and pose a safety risk to the driver.

Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. can equip your scale with custom rails made with robust materials.

5. Gates

Having gates at the entry and/or exit of your truck scale allows you to control access. Electronic gates are available that can be opened and closed either remotely or by the scale users.
