Cart Tipper weigh in motion

Accurately and Easily Weigh Individual Residential Waste Carts

LoadMan Weigh-In-Motion Scale combined with LoadMan Load Management software provide a critical solution for haulers to access essential data for analyzing their business, tracking customer waste and recycling habits, and reporting waste diversion rates. LoadMan can connect with GPS or RFID readers to automatically track each customer pick-up with no driver intervention or distraction.

Technologies We Use

Loadcells

LoadMan’s C242 loadcell for cart tippers uses a unique capability that automatically compensates for the change in moment when the center of gravity changes. So what does that mean to you? Superior, Consistent, and Repeatable Accuracy. Competitors loadcells have issues when the center of gravity changes, causing a change in the moment. A change in the moment causes large errors in weight readings.

The LoadMan Cart Tipper scale utilizes a series of C342 loadcells that are built using 4340 alloy steel plate. (The quantity of C342’s depend on the make, model and size of the commercial cart tipper.) After machining, the loadcell is heat treated to RC40 specification; providing 180,000psi strength. Each loadcell has approximately 1000 lbs. (453kg) dynamic capacity. A typical two loadcell cart tipper scale system provides a combined 2000 lbs. dynamic capacity (907 kg).

The loadcell’s angle, speed and load on the cart lifter are measured every 10 milliseconds, and the system’s high-speed microprocessor, and proprietary load/angle algorithms make calculations and corrections all while the cart is in motion to deliver a highly accurate weight. LoadMan cart tipper scales are built to typically maintain their accuracy within two percent of the capacity of the cart lifter over an annual period.

LoadMan loadcells are positioned between two high-strength A514 plates and feature a low-profile locking mechanism. This design removes stress on the bolts ensuring less wear and tear and a longer life of the components.

  • Dynamic capacity of 1000 lbs (453 kg) per loadcell
  • Withstands temperatures of -40°C to 60°C (-40°F to 140°F)

Warranty: Twenty-four month loadcell electronics from the date of installation. Also, new loadcells are warranted from physical breakage for a period of 60 months from the date of installation

In Cab Computers & Displays

LoadMan LM300 Scale Meter

The LM300 Meter is a single box computer using proprietary micro-code to determine the exact weight of a load (typically within 1%). The computer collects 100 weight samples per second. These samples are then processed with sophisticated analog load and angle curves that reside within the weighing firmware; ultimately providing a single digital load weight. These proprietary load/angle curves were first developed over 15 years ago and are continuously refined as new revisions of load and angle sensors are updated with the newest technology.

The LoadMan system is completely automatic and the driver/operator does not have to press any buttons or take any actions to obtain a weight reading. Using the LoadMan LM300 Route Assistant, the 16 character display provides all the information needed to understand the status of the weighing system.

LoadMan LM400 Route Assistant

LoadMan’s LM400 Route Assistant brings a modern color touch-screen graphical user interface with an intuitive driver interface. The screen is one of select few in the industry that can withstand an extreme temperature range from 60°C (140° F) to -40°C (-40° F).

Software

LoadMan's Load Management Software (operating in the back office) allows remote tracking of trucks, drivers, customers, routes and products by account or job.

Testimonial

“The LoadMan Cart Tipper Scale is an exciting new product that the Region of Peel has been eager to test and integrate in an innovative pilot project using RFID technology to track and report on waste generation rates in the multi-residential sector. As weights differ from one recycling cart to another depending on its contents, it’s important that we have...
