General Electrodynamics Corporation (United States) - Press Release: The “new” GEC MD600L mechanical wheel-load scales are NTEP approved, light weight, low-height and extremely durable. This fully-mechanical, intrinsically safe, unique measurement design makes the GEC MD600L wheel load scales the most desirable unit in the world.
The new GEC wheel load scale is designed for use on uneven – unimproved surfaces and with extreme temperatures in mind. From over 60 years of a field proved patent, (after the MD400’s and MD500’s), the MD600L wheel load scale is now available.
The MD600L has a 19¼ inch x 14¼ inch “active” weighing surface, weighs only 46 lbs., 1.8 inches tall, and will accurately weigh on virtually any surface. The MD600L is accurate to +/- 1% and easily read with a magnified lens in pounds or kilograms.
The MD600L meets and exceeds all accuracy requirements Per NIST handbook 44 for Class IIII Devices (NTEP certified)
Since 1956, we have engineered portable wheel load scales for determining the weight of heavy vehicles. Our wheel load scales are manufactured in the USA (Arlington Texas) and used for strict law enforcement, commercial and harsh military applications.
