The pads are positioned at 6 m intervals, in order to allow weighing of both 20’ and 40’ containers.
Each steel pad, of dimensions 2.8 x 1 m, is equipped with 4 loadcells.
Capacity of each pad is 30 tons.
The readout instrument allows to memorize the weight of empty containers, which is then automatically subtracted to give the nett weight. The instrument can be connected to a PC for data storage and statistical analysis.
