We’ll be making our debut at FleetManagement Live at the NEC in October.
The decision to exhibit is a logical step and recognises the increasing number of van operators in the UK. And we have systems that are extensively used by van operators.
Axtec’s OnBoard Load Indicator for instance is ideal for multi-drop or diminishing load operations. Overloading has a detrimental effect on many major components of a van – tyres, brakes, steering, clutch, suspension – and can lead to prohibitions, prosecutions and, if you run larger vehicles, may even affect an ‘O’ licence.
|Axtec OnBoard - Preventing Overloading on Vans.|
With more new vans registered each year joining already heavily-congested roads, driver and road-user safety has never been more important for fleet operators.
But, with DVSA figures showing 93% of 10,000 vans stopped in 2015 were overloaded, it seems the safety implications of carrying additional weight are not always fully realised.
The Axtec OnBoard Load Indicator can help solve that problem though.
With a simple colour display that shows all the axle and gross weight information all the time and no manual controls so no driver training is involved. Axle and gross weights are all displayed the second the ignition is switched on.
The colour display allows information to be displayed graphically. Legal weights are shown in green, loads over 80% in amber and overloads in flashing red. There’s even an audible alarm selectable by management if required.
And outputs for connection to a tracking device are included as standard. So incidences of overloading can be recorded and reported back to base.
And the customer calibration facility means that keeping the system accurate can be done quickly and simply by our own people.
No expensive service visit is requird.
So if you're operating vans that you need to keep legal, come and see us at the NEC. We’ll be on stand P62 on 3rd and 4th of October.
