Rice Lake onboard scale

Trailers | November 16, 2012

Rice Lake’s new Legal for Trade onboard scale, TradeRoute, lets drivers bypass local truck scales and conduct business directly to and from their payload.

TradeRoute operates from a parked position via hydraulics. The scale’s load cells support the vehicle’s load only during the weigh cycle. It’s 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, the company says, and the system can be customized for individual customers’ needs.
