Red Forge Ltd are proud to announce the release of the latest in their range of Axle Load indicators. An addition to the LimitliteTM range, the Tradesman display has been created at the request of existing customers, in order to provide a simple visual guide to the loading condition of your vehicle.
Using the same tried and tested sensor technology as the market leading LimitliteTM Plus range, which has had thousands of units installed across many years, the Tradesman allows an ‘at a glance’ check for both front and rear axle loads, as well as Gross Vehicle Weight.
Equally suitable for new or retrofit applications, the LimitliteTM Tradesman has the added benefit of quicker installation thanks to data transfer via laptop or handheld programmer. The display is smaller than those in the existing range, meaning an easier installation in the cab away from the swept area. The new display uses a ‘Traffic Light’ system - showing green for safe loads, changing to amber for near full load and red for overload. It has built in display damping and requires no driver input. Vehicle Telemetry (VTS) output comes as standard and allows for remote overload warnings and fault reporting.
Accurate to within the VOSA/DVSA guidelines for roadside spot checks, this latest application is the most economic means of ensuring that a driver protects both himself and the company from fines, penalties or loss of license. In addition, the LimitliteTM Tradesman benefits from a lifetime warranty on parts and labour, subject to regular service and calibration, meaning that long term costs are kept to a bare minimum.
