How Secure is Your Weighbridge?

NUWEIGH offer a range of weighbridge accessories and options for both new or pre-existing weighbridge systems. These additional features are designed to ensure your weighbridge is user-friendly, highly functional and always operating at its full potential.

NWS introduced the Anti-fraud System to our range to assist in the protection of your weighbridge from fraudulent transactions. We offer the NUWEIGH Anti-fraud System in two sizes:

  • RIDGE Series Y201: 300mm in height and is engineered to suit our concrete weighbridges.
  • WHITERIDGE Series Y901: 900mm in height and is engineered to suit our steel weighbridges.

Both of these size variations can be installed on any make or model of weighbridge system to prevent the occurrence of weighbridge fraud. Common means of weighbridge fraud include:

  • The manipulation of the weighbridge
  • Mis-handling by the operator
  • Tampering with vehicle weights
  • Leaving rear axle off the scale
  • Electronic manipulation of the weighbridge system

NUWEIGH’s Anti-fraud System comprises of two pressure sensors that are fixed to the weighbridge deck at the entrance and exit which are activated when it detects the motion of a vehicle moving past.

Once the vehicle has entered the weighbridge, it must be positioned within the correct weighing region. When the vehicle is not positioned correctly within the weighing area, the weighbridge operator will be alerted by a red flashing light on the anti-fraud indicator located within the weighbridge hut.

The weighbridge operator will then direct the driver to correctly position the vehicle on the weighbridge so that both the front and rear axles are placed correctly on the scale. Following this, the transaction will proceed under the direction of the weighbridge operator.

This durable product is completely waterproof, finished with a purpose designed base plate and a high-quality yellow powder coating for visibility and safety that will withstand the toughest Australian environments. We recommend combining the Anti-fraud Sensors with our Boom Gates, Traffic Lights and Video Cameras to create a fully secure and complete weighbridge system.

Increasing the security of your weighbridge by eliminating fraud and embracing advanced technologies can reduce financial losses to your business. Contact us today and speak to a weighbridge expert about how we can ensure a safe and secure weighing solution for you.
