Connected Axle Load Monitoring (CALM)

A total of 25% of prosecutions are due to front axle load violations. It is essential to re-distribute the load following drop-off or when picking up a new load.

Why is Axle Load Monitoring Important?

Multi-drop loads are continuously changing in weight distribution. Drivers can easily miss this, resulting in axle overload risks. Following drop off or pick up, loads may need to be re-distributed. Adding load sensors ensures a safe and regulation-compliant journey.

Trips are tracked in real-time, with drop-off points highlighted to show changes in the axle load and load distribution.

The in-cab monitor also provides this data for driver feedback. Data analysis from TPMS and load measurements provides critical insight into safety, efficiency, and the overall carbon footprint.

TPMS and Load Monitoring

TPMS: Foundation for CALM

Tire pressure has a heavy influence on the safety and efficiency of your fleet. The load cannot be maximized if the tire pressure is not optimal. TPMS is an essential addition to any fleet.

Unauthorized Stops

It is important to know if the driver is unloading goods along the way or if the full load did not arrive at its destination. Axle load monitoring offers real-time journey analysis for the fleet manager. Readings taken before and after loading show any reductions or additions and highlight notable changes.

Fleet Management of Axle Load Monitoring

ATLAS Insight offers the ability to manage the entire fleet in real time and provides an audit trail. Alerts regarding axle or vehicle overloading arrive through email or SMS and appear on the dashboard for immediate action.

ATLAS is flexible with a range of available sensors and sensor inputs/outputs. It is well suited to a wide range of vehicle functions but can also be easily customized for use in other electronics.

OEM integration can monitor all aspects of a machine or vehicle and provide a superior customer service platform. An ATLAS system could save months' worth of time and R&D dollars.

In Partnership with Ax-tec

Axtec OnBoard axle load indicators resolve the issue of changing weight distribution on multi-load trips. By consistently displaying the axle and gross weights, drivers can distribute their loads safely and legally at all times.

From light vans to 32-ton trucks, the easy-to-use colour-coded display does not have manual controls, so driver training is unnecessary.

Axtec offers solutions to run your vehicles at maximum payload within the law.
