IN-MOTION RAIL SCALES
LMI rail scales are inserted into an existing tract of rails. A length of 2.7 m of rails gets cut to insert the scale.
The scale is provided with 4 loadcells of 30 ton capacity each (total scale capacity = 120 tons).
The scale works in motion, with a maximum train speed of 10 km/h. First the train gets weighed with empty wagons, in order to obtain the tare. Then the train is loaded, and it gets weighed again. The software calculates the difference (nett weight), and it allows to record and store: single bogie weight, wagon weight, total train weight.
