The EU Directive 2015/719 requires the vehicle weight measurement to protect infrastructure and to reduce the impact on the environment. Overloaded trucks not only pose an increased traffic risk, but also wear out roads and bridges.

Eltek OBW (On Board Weighing) Sensor is measuring directly the load by means of “strain gauge” technology.

Main benefits:

  • Easy assembly (no need of manual cleaning/reworking of the axle/Springleaf surface).
  • Universal sensor (the same sensor can be used for a wide range of axles) – easy recalibration procedure (the sensor allows the truck owner to do an easy recalibration procedure at the service and to compensate the influence of ageing and the influence of the axle tolerencances).
