Weigh in Motion

Weigh-In-Motion Strip Sensors

Weigh-In-Motion Combine Accuracy & Longevity in a Minimally Invasive Design for High Volume Weight Enforcement & Data.

Weigh-In-Motion offer a unique alternative to traditional WIM scales. Candid strip sensors use strain gauge based technology which is utilized in the most accurate vehicle scales. This technology takes full advantage of the fast response times and large sampling rates to achieve long term accuracy and stability. As with traditional WIM sensors, Candid strip sensors are installed into just 375 mm channels in the roadway minimising required time for installation and maintenance.

WIM can be configured in set of 2 pairs of strips depending on the application and required accuracy. When combined with FalconEye LPR cameras, detectors and data transmission devices, they are capable of serving as stand-alone virtual remote weigh stations.

Candid WIM-HIGH Sensors utilize strain gauge technology which is widely accepted as the most accurate and reliable means to weigh a vehicle. This revolutionary Weigh-In-Motion strain gauge based design provides an alternative to traditional sensor based technology. Candid WIM-HIGH Sensors are capable of meeting or exceeding and COST 323 A(5), Bperformance requirements. Installed within 75 mm wide channels in the pavement, the sensor delivers lower cost because of the minimal time & labor associated with installation and maintenance.
