VWS Launches New Solar Powered Weigh Pad at the CV Show 2015
February 2015

Vehicle Weighing Solutions (VWS) returns to The CV Show with a raft of new and improved products, including a solar powered version of its popular drive-on portable wheel weigh pad – the Apollo PT300.

With a capacity of 2,500kg to 12,000 kg per pad and an accuracy of +/- 1% the Apollo PT300 provides a simple, cable or cable-free, way to check vehicle weights.  Manufactured from 100% high resistance avionics grade aluminium alloy, it withstands all weather conditions and is easily carried by one person.  Solar power charges the internal battery and enables the system to be used for longer periods.

VWS will be showcasing its full range of axle weighers, including the Apollo Portable Weigh-in-Motion axle weigh bridge, which can weigh up to 30,000 kg per axle and with up to 16 axles.  The Apollo Fixed Axle Weighbridge offers a low cost, high spec axle and gross vehicle weigher that can be used either as a static axle weighbridge or for dynamic ‘in motion’ low speed weighing.

All the systems can be linked to IT systems and database facilities so that vehicle registrations can be stored against vehicle types to ensure vehicles are compliant with legal requirements.

Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, VWS said: “The CV Show was a huge success for us last year and our Apollo range went down a storm. We are really excited about presenting our latest innovations at this year’s expo.”

VWS will also be demonstrating its market leading vehicle on-board weighing products and sister company, Applied Traffic will be on hand to speak to about its range of standard and bespoke traffic monitoring solutions.

VWS and Applied Traffic belong to a family of complimentary British companies known collectively as AW.co.uk specialising in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of load cells, weighing and traffic monitoring systems.
