Freight Terminal Truck Scales-InterComp

Intercomp weighing technology can be integrated into automated gate systems, supplying vehicle weights at the entry and exit points of ports, rail & freight yards by using in-ground Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) scales or sensors. These scales remove a source of bottlenecks for gate operators and roadway freight companies by replacing large, in-ground, stationary static scales and integrating weight information into existing vehicle transactions.

LS-WIM® Weigh-In-Motion Freight Terminal Scales


Intercomp’s in-ground WIM system tracks and displays individual axle weights in addition to gross vehicle weight (GVW). With a full-length truck scale, this data is hard to collect. The smaller weighbridge of the WIM system also requires less effort and time to install and maintain.Capture vehicle weight dynamically at a permanent facility:

  • Small installation and operational footprint compared to full-length truck scale
  • 1-2% dynamic accuracy up to 6 mph (10 km/h)
  • Static Accuracy ±0.1%
  • Available components combine into standalone system
  • Integration into existing gate systems, if applicable
  • Capture individual axle and total vehicle weight
  • Available in capacities up to 100,000 lb (45,000 kg)

Typical Sensor Configurations for Freight Terminals

Intercomp’s strain gauge based Strip Sensors are a unique alternative to traditional static truck scales, or low-speed axle scales where vehicle speeds and sites do not allow large civil works.  Strip Sensors allow for higher throughput for high-traffic applications. Strip Sensors provide reduced installation and operation cost when compared to alternative scale systems due to minimal installation and maintenance requirements.

  • Constructed Using Strain Gauge Load Cells in Sealed Enclosure
  • OIML R134 Weigh-In-Motion Certified for Accuracy
  • Used for Weight Compliance, Inventory Tracking, Ports and Other WIM Applications
  • Use to Address SOLAS Verified Gross Mass Container Requirements

LS630-WIM™ Portable Freight Terminal Scales

Portable WIM is a hybrid system that brings together our experience in both WIM technology and our long history of developing innovative portable truck scales.

Portable WIM Scales can operate in dynamic or static mode:

  • System includes two scales, roll-up ramps and indicator
  • Deployable by two people in less than 15 minutes
  • Capture individual axle and total vehicle weight
  • 2-3% dynamic accuracy, ±0.5% static accuracy
  • Push-button conversion to static mode
  • RFX®; Wireless Weighing with cable backup
  • 60,000 lb (30,000 kg) individual axle capacity
