“A few years ago I was in breach of weight regulations sitting behind my office desk. Whilst collecting castings from a foundry, our driver accepted an additional pallet. Stopped, weighed and subsequently prosecuted, the driver and I found ourselves pleading guilty at Burnley Magistrates Court…never again! We have recently installed VanWeigh systems to all our vehicles.” Glyn Brown, Managing Director, Archerdale Limited
Diverseco’s VanWeigh™ on-board overload/ payload control system provides a solution to an industry-wide problem by enabling operators to avoid overloading, maximise payloads and reduce WHS risk.
This essential aid to equal load distribution provides:
- Drivers the knowledge they need and security they deserve
- Keeps your operation compliant with National Heavy Vehicle Regulator requirements
- Cost effective payload optimisation, and
- Essential load monitoring for both load and distribution
VanWeigh™ payload monitoring system is specifically designed for most spring suspension, two axle light commercial vehicles – vans, utilities and light trucks – and trailers of 1 to 3 tonne capacity. The system monitors spring deflection for single steer and multiple dual and tri-axle groups on rigid vehicles.
Using patented solid state sensors that are mounted directly onto spring suspension and axle systems, Diverseco’s VanWeigh™ is a low cost weighing system designed to eliminate accidental overloading of light commercial vehicles by alerting the driver if the total vehicle or axle weight maximum is infringed.

Easy to read LCD display
The PM Onboard VanWeigh onboard truck scales use a high-density back-illuminated liquid crystal display. The 8mm high back-light characters are clearly visible to the driver, night and day. Brightness and contrast can be adjusted by the driver to suit all ambient lighting conditions.
The display unit provides individual axle readings on the twin-channel display, informing the operator with constant, clear and precise information in kilograms, on the loaded weight of the vehicle. An audio and/or visual overload alarm will be activated to inform the operator of the overload infringement.
The all-electric system requires a minimum amount of maintenance and comes with a full 12 month parts and labour warranty.
