28 Feb Tipper body S1G with the montage of weighing system
Tipper body S1G
The Iveco T-way 8×8 dump truck belongs to the heavy category and is mainly used in quarries and mining sites. It is fitted with 17 cubic meter of tipper body S1G from Hardox 450 – highly resistant to wear and tear. Floor, sidewalls and fron wall are in thickness 18/8/8 mm. Tailgate is in thickness 8 mmand it is with an overlap of 10 mm to 2/3 of the height and opened by a rope mechanism. The lenght of the mentoned tipper body is 5,8 m.
Innovations on the tipper body includes an on-board weighing system and a new camera system for the cargo area.
The weighing system on the truck has a very important role in ensuring safety and veryfying the correct weight of transported goods. His role is to measure the weight of the load and ensure that the maximum allowed is respected and that an unsafe means of transport is avoided. Vehicles and roads are therefore subject to less wear and tear, fuel costs are saved and CO2 emissions are reduced.
On tipper body S1G is mounted five-sensor onboard weighing system LANX HD MDO. The control unit of the system is installed directly in the cabin and displays the weight loaded on the tipper body in real time. Values are shown net and gross or partial. LANX 2.0 uses a number of pressure sensors located on the rear storage of the tipper body, the hydraulic system of the vehicle and displays all data on the display. In addition, the weight data can be printed using a mini printer.
The accuracy is +/- 0,5% with full loaded vehicle. To weigh is necessary lift up the lifting cylinder 10 – 15 cm so the tipper box do not touch the frame.
A special camera system is installed on the vehicle for the sake of work safety and control of the rear part and cargo on the body. The cargo compartment camera provides an overview of the cargo in the muld. This reduces the risk of accidents for the driver, as the camera can be used to conveniently monitor the loading process from the cab, and the risk of injury to people behind the vehicle and not visible in the rearview can be minimized.
