Intercomp Company (Ukraine, Canada) - Press Release: Intercomp’s Weigh-In-Motion strip sensors have been selected as the preferred sensor supplier and installed within High Speed Weigh-In-Motion (HSWIM) systems in Ukraine for commercial vehicle weight enforcement sites.
Based on proven strain gauge technology, which is widely recognized as the most accurate means to weigh a vehicle, the Intercomp WIM sensors were selected because of the technology’s inherent accuracy, temperature stability, and ease of calibration and operation over time. Already employed in hundreds of WIM sites in the region, the sensors also have international OIML R134 certification as independent validation of their performance.
The virtual WIM systems’ roadside equipment and WIM software is provided by Saskatoon, Canada based (IRD) International Road Dynamics, Inc, a company experienced with providing integrated WIM solutions throughout the world. “Intercomp is excited to add this project to our existing partnership with IRD,” states Jon Arnold, Market Specialist at Intercomp, “building on our extensive experience with strain gauge scales and sensors which provide the integrator the best possible value for WIM data.”
Installed in 3-inch (70 mm) channels cut into the pavement, the WIM sensors detect and measure axle and gross vehicle weights at speeds at low and high speeds. The sensors operate in pairs installed in the roadway surface, enabling rapid installation, calibration, and low-maintenance operation over time.
