Works on fixed & tipping body trucks that can be isolated from the truck frame.
Installation Time
Due to variation of conditions for clean chassis space, location of drive suspensions, location(s) of lift axles, possible obstructions, need or not for new 12 Vdc hydraulics lifting kit, and general requirements of module positioning with respect to COG, installation of a complete Traderoute system to a straight chassis truck can be anywhere from 2 to 3 two-man 8 hour days. This installation estimate does not include scale dealer time for system calibration with test weights, post-installation, which is typically a 4 hour job, performed with a test weight truck on site.

Easy to Use:
The Low Profile OnBoard™ Scale System is equipped with automatic hydraulic controls that lift the scale into and out of weighing position in approximately three seconds. The whole process of lifting the scale into weighing position and running the required instrumentation is an easy one-man operation.

Legal for Trade Weighing Anywhere:
All RiceLake's On-Board Weighing systems can weigh on slopes up to six degrees off-level. Perfectly level ground is not required to get legal-for-trade accurate results.

Bolt On Installation:
Installation is quick and easy. RiceLake's Low Profile OnBoard™ Scale systems come complete with all the required hardware and installation instructions. The assemblies simply bolt onto the truck’s existing frame. No modifications to the existing frame are required. Low Profile Systems are available in two types of assemblies, single and double, as well as three capacity levels. Refer to Table 2 under the Technical Info tab for a breakdown of what systems are required, dependent on the total capacity required.

Conveniently Mounted Display and Printer:
The OnBoard™ Control Center is conveniently mounted on the exterior of your transportation frame so that all transactions are easily viewed by the operator. The weatherproof enclosure protects the instrumentation and printer, for years of trouble free use. A legal ticket can be printed for your records.

Patented Weigh System:
RiceLake's patented weigh system ensures accurate weights in all conditions. The integral hydraulic system ensures the load is completely removed from the load cells during transport. This prevents shock loading damage and guarantees accuracy for many years of use.

Improve Business Accuracy:
By adding a Legal-For-Trade scale to your existing delivery or collection system you eliminate the guesswork from charging “by the container” or other volume-types of measurements. Accurately weighing and billing for the materials delivered or collected will improve business efficiency while improving overall customer satisfaction.

Durable Frame Hugging Design:
Low overhead clearance is not a concern with RiceLake's frame hugging design. The addition of this scale adds a mere 2 3/8” (60mm) to the overall height of the collection unit. The system is designed to be compact, leaving the truck’s center of gravity unchanged. RiceLake's patented, field proven lift mechanism, is able to accommodate hundreds of “lift and lower” cycles each day.

Some of the key features include:
Easy one-man operation.
Integral hydraulic system ensures the load is completely removed from the load cells during transport.
Load cell not engaged during transport prevents shock loading damage.
Weighing position in approximately three seconds.
Can weigh on slopes up to six degrees off-level. Three or Four point system.
Three or Four point weighing system.
Some of the key features include:
The assemblies simply bolt onto the truck’s existing frame.

Operating Modes
The Weigh Center operates in two modes: single weigh mode and batch weigh mode.
Single Weigh Mode is a simple mode that allows only independent weighments. Product ID's are not available in this mode.
Batch Weigh Mode is a mode with more functionality. It allows the use of product ID's so that more than one product can be delivered and weighed (multiple compartment containers).
Normal Single Weigh Mode Operation:
1. Park the vehicle in as level a location as possible.
2. Raise the platform to enable the scale. If the level lamp does not indicate that the unit is level lower the platform and move the truck. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
3. Turn the power switch located on the instrument panel to the ON position. The M2000 weigh indicator should power up. The readout on the indicator should be positive. Note: The M2000 will shut off after 10 seconds if the vehicle is not level.
4. Insert your ticket into the TM290 ticket printer. Note: The delivery hoses must be in the storage position before pushing the START button.
5. When the reading on the M2000 has stabilized push [START] once. The printer will print the current time and date, and the starting gross and net weights.
6. The M2000 will go into NET mode automatically when the start button is pushed. The display will show zero with the net light illuminated.
7. Connect the delivery hoses. Unload or load the amount as desired. Then disconnect the hoses and place in the storage position. Note: The delivery hoses must be in the storage position before pushing the END button.
8. When the reading has stabilized push the [END] button once. The printer will print out the amount unloaded in units of weight.

9. Lower the platform to disengage the scale, visually check to see that the scale is down completely. The cab alarm light will go out when the scale is in the transport position.
Note1: Do not move the vehicle until the scale is in the transport position.
Note2: The LB/KG and the NET/GROSS keys on the M2000 have been disabled. NET and GROSS modes are automatically selected during operation.
Note3: It is not necessary to turn the power switch on the control box off between deliveries. In fact, if the truck will not be turned off between deliveries it is recommended that the power switch be left in the on position. When the truck is going to be shut down, power down the control box prior to turning off the truck.

Vehicle requirements:
1. Truck frame width (outside to outside) must be between 33½" and 35".
2. Truck frame behind the cab must be as long as the container plus 6 to 12".
3. There must be enough axle capacity for the container, product, and scale components.
4. Truck must have a bumper attached to truck frame.
5. Trucks with fenders: Fenders must be attached to the truck frame. (Fenders should not be attached to the container body).

Hydraulic Requirements:
Truck requires a hydraulic pump with the following specifications

1. Maximum pressure capability of 3000psi (pressure is usually set to approximately 1800 to 2000 psi).
2. Minimum flow of 5 GPM (lower flow is acceptable, but will increase the time to raise and lower the scale into and out of weighing mode).
3. If used with NORAC supplied control valves, the pump must be open center (constant volume).
4. If used with other hydraulic control valves, pump must match the control valve (i.e. open center pump with open center valve).
How to select a system:
The typical installation is a double/double (2 - OB20-DBL10)assembly so if you had a 20,000lb requirement the net price would be OB20-DBL10 + OB20-DBL10 + (meter with printer) = Total for the hardware. Refer to the System Capacity Selection Table below.
