AccuOnboard’s innovative BinWeigh system is Australia’s only in-motion weighing system trade approved by the National Measuring Institute (NMI).
Development of the system has been driven by demand for dynamic, accurate, on-vehicle weighing systems that enable waste truck operators to collect bins and obtain accurate weight measurement readings without interrupting collection and tipping processes.
The BinWeigh system is particularly valuable because it provides forward- thinking waste management companies with new capabilities around transparent invoicing.
The technology enables them to satisfy increasing customer demands for the supply of invoices based on the measurement of the individual weight of a bin’s content, rather than charge them on a bin’s volume capacity, whether full or not.
BinWeigh’s NMI legal for trade status means waste management companies can now confidently charge waste producers by weight, free of fears about the risks associated with overcharging customers and costly NMI penalties.
The product of extensive engineering research and development, BinWeigh includes a number of proprietary technologies and features that enable waste management companies to optimise operations.
The BinWeigh system employs sophisticated DigiSens technology and a METIRON data processing computer, which generate high resolution, net weight calculations. These are then combined with time, date, bin and client data to meet invoicing requirements.
This technology is used by all major bin lifter manufacturers in Europe, which is why AccuOnboard chose to take time to develop the product rather than use standard strain gauge or pressure technology.
The METIRON computer is able to communicate through successive interfaces with the container identification system, on-board computer, METERM display system, printer and other linked hardware.
With off-the-shelf or customised adaptation mountings available, AccuOnboard’s robust BinWeigh system is suitable for front, rear and side lifters providing accurate weighing of individual waste bins.
