Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has type approved a Right Weigh on-board mass (OBM) system in Category A.

US firm Right Weigh supplies its OBM systems to the Australian market through local distributor Smart Truck Solutions.

There are three categories of type-approved OBM systems – A, B and C – that meet the needs of different stakeholders through the National Telematics Framework.

"Category A OBM systems offer accuracy and reliability, load management, compliance and safety, electronically displaying mass information to drivers or loaders," 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, comprising accuracy, reliability and robustness requirements, it adds.

"At Right Weigh, our focus is to create quality products with the truck driver in mind," Right Weigh president and CEO Andy Mount says.

"The exterior digital load scales interfaces with Android and Apple smart phones, giving industry professionals easier access to truck or trailer weight data.

"It’s an affordable, easy-to-use system that creates operational efficiencies and gives transport operators a quick return on investment.

 "We’re proud to work with Smart Truck Solutions to provide quality Right Weigh products to the Australian market."
