Rice Lake Weighing Systems: TradeRoute

By |  November 18, 2013

Rice Lake Weighing Systems’ legal-for-trade onboard scale lets drivers bypass local truck scales and conduct business directly to and from their payload – printed ticket and all. According to Rice Lake, TradeRoute is one of a few legal-for-trade onboard scales available in North America. This particular scale is unique, the company says, because it operates solely from a parked position where hydraulics are used to engage the scale. TradeRoute’s load cells support the vehicle’s load only during the weigh cycle, eliminating the potential for premature load cell wear from constant engagement. TradeRoute is designed to install around the frame of many common straight-truck designs, using a combination of frame-hugging weigh modules, a stainless steel junction box and a weatherproof control center that houses Rice Lake’s 920i indicator/controller and Epson TM-U295 ticket printer.
