VEHICLE Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) has launched a ground-breaking new product development giving customers WiFi connectivity to their vehicle weighing systems and access to live operational weight data via a phone or tablet.
The VWS WiFi HUB integrates with the VWS LIVE portal to give operators immediate remote access to transactional data such as weights, alerts and vehicle(s) location. VWS has also developed its own app – VWS LIVE – to enable all authorised personnel to access the same data using a phone or tablet. The WiFi HUB actively monitors real-time diagnostics which are then relayed back to the VWS Service Department, providing information for analysis and future product development.
The WiFi HUB can be used on tippers and vehicle overload protection systems and is compatible with VWS VOPS™2 and LOADWEIGH FOR TIPPERS.
Trevor Evans, Operational Director, VWS said: “We are incredibly proud of the WiFi HUB and what the team have achieved over the last few months. The Wifi Hub doesn’t need to be installed inside the vehicle, simplifying the installation. Live weighing and load data can be accessed wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet via the VWS LIVE app. This means that operators and business owners can view real-time operational data from any location.
“The vehicle weight is visible from outside the cab and operations can run more smoothly because shovel loaders, drivers and operators have access to the same information. The system has additional messaging features to help improve communications.”
A British company, VWS is the market leader in vehicle on-board weighing, axle overload protection and bin-weighing solutions. The company manufactures all its own load cells and installs its equipment here in the UK. VWS systems are widely used in municipalities and commercial waste contractors all across Europe.
