The precision sensor attached to the center of the axle detects the strain in the axle. This strain is then measured and converted to pounds or kilograms by the Right Weigh digital scale system.
The trailer weight puts strain on the axle because the load is coming straight down on the springs and an equally opposite force is coming up through the tires. This strain on the axle is then measured by the precision sensors and converted to pounds or kilograms by the Right Weigh digital scale system using the calibration information entered by the user during initial setup.
- The spring suspension sensor can only be used to monitor the weight for trailers
- Compatible with most axle diameters and shapes
- Each axle in the axle group must have one sensor installed
- Only one digital scale is necessary to read all the sensors per axle group
