Applications of Vehicle Enforcement ScalesTransportation officials throughout the world use vehicle scales and Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) scales and sensors to monitor and classify traffic, identify overloaded vehicles, and enforce weight limits. Vehicle weight enforcement increases safety for the drivers, and allows officials to protect infrastructure such as roads, bridges, and tunnels from being damaged by overweight vehicles. To achieve these goals, portable and in-ground weighing is used at speeds ranging from static weights up to 65 mph (105 kmh) and above.
Intercomp manufactures vehicle weighing scales and systems for High-Speed (HS-WIM™) and Low-Speed Weigh-In-Motion (LS-WIM™), as well as static vehicle weighing applications. We offer in-ground fixed or portable designs that can operate as standalone scales, or can be integrated into systems with software, cameras, and traffic control accessories.
Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) sensors are used for a variety of data collection applications in the transportation industry. Our products are used to collect vehicle data such as speed, vehicle weights, classifications, and traffic volumes for traffic monitoring and highway planning.
For commercial weight enforcement applications, our Weigh-In-Motion sensors and scales are used to detect and identify overloaded vehicles on roads and highways, minimiz
