The Smart Scale wireless scale for commercial vehicles built by TruckWeight is now an installed option on Benson International flatbed trailers, as well as available for sale and aftermarket installation through nearly 70 authorized Benson dealer locations in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.

Smart Scale measures temperature and pressure changes in a vehicle’s air suspension and wirelessly sends this data to a handheld receiver using a low-powered radio transmitter, said Peter Panagapko, president of TruckWeight. It provides an axle weight and gross vehicle weight measurements that are within 0.3% of the actual gross vehicle weight.

He noted that the Smart Scale wireless reader has a range of up to 500 feet. The unit comes in a waterproof, shock-resistant, and non-corrosive housing and is powered by AA batteries.

“Benson customers depend on their equipment to help them optimize payload,” said Panagapko. “Our wireless Smart Scale produces fast, accurate axle-weight and gross vehicle weight readings so Benson customers can load efficiently and to their maximum rated capacity.”
