VANWEIGH LITE | Overload Protection and Load Optimization

VanWeigh Lite Wi-Fi Connectivity to Mobile Device.

All the features of VanWeigh without the need for an in-cab device. VanWeigh Lite can connect directly to your smart phone or mobile tablet

Axle Load Monitoring The VanWeigh® Lite axle overload monitoring system is specifically designed for two axled vehicles with standard coil or leaf spring suspension and/ or air suspension. Each axle is monitored with a patented solid-state sensor which monitors the load applied to each axle. The information is displayed to the driver on the twin channel digital indicator and an audible alarm sounds if the total vehicle or axle weight maximum is infringed. Audible alarm must be activated by the user. This is due to the operating system of any mobile device.

The driver has a choice of three screens:

  • Screen 1: the standard dial screen view.
  • Screen 2: a graphical van display with the actual weight in lbs or kgs, and the percent of payload vs load capacity.
  • Screen 3: an actual weight over each axle plus the GVW in lbs or kgs, and the percent of payload vs load capacity.

The driver will be alerted to three conditions:

  • Safe: indicates loads up to 90% either front or rear axle and total load.
  • Warning: indicates loads between 90% and 100%.
  • Overload: alerts the driver to an axle or vehicle infringement above 100% load
VanWeigh Lite Screens

VanWeigh® Lite has no moving parts and is not susceptible to wear or slipping out of calibration because of stretched springs, which are common in other axle overload monitoring systems.

VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

Nick HatchettStores Supervisor, Booth Dispensers Ltd, UK

I have just ordered our fourth VanWeigh system in two years for our growing fleet of VW Crafters. VPG Onboard Weighing fitters are polite, courteous and well trained in their knowledge of the units being fitted. Vehicles are left clean, tidy and ready for work. 

The VanWeigh units themselves are worth their weight in gold. There is no fiddling about to add up weight, just load the vehicles and the unit does the rest. Drivers can see straight away if they need to alter their load to spread the weight.
