E-Max weighing tech gets TCA type approval
E-Max has gained TCA type approval


E-Max Australia’s on-board mass (OBM) system is the newest recipient of a Transport Certification Australia (TCA) type approval.

Its Air-Weigh LoadMaxx truck and trailer scales are classified as Category A OBM systems, which electronically display mass information to drivers or loaders.

The weighing technology "allows seamless communication between prime movers and trailers", TCA says.

All categories of type-approval are subject to an assessment of the performance-based requirements contained in the OBM System Functional and Technical Specification, and must meet high levels of accuracy, reliability and security.

"We feel a great sense of achievement in gaining TCA type-approval for the Air-Weigh LoadMaxx onboard weighing system," E-Max managing director Phillip Carthew says.

"TCA’s type-approval of OBM Systems is a world first, showing global leadership in the transport industry, and we are very pleased to be a part of that."

 "We’ve drawn upon the best resources from around the globe to satisfy TCA’s performance requirements, and to meet the needs of stakeholders.

"Being independently assessed provides a high-level of confidence for our products’ performance both from a software and hardware perspective."

TCA also notes that certified service provider Pinpoint Communications has changed its name to Netstar Australia after being acquired by the latter two years ago.

Pinpoint Communications had been a certified provider of telematics applications in the National Telematics Framework since November 2010.
