The EPR+ Plus truck scale is available in impervious hydraulic or electronic load-cell types. Featuring durable baked-on, anti-corrosion powder paint, the legal-for-trade [NTEP] standard EPR+ Plus arrives fully prepared for easy installation, as each scale bridge's interconnecting load blocks and receivers require no bolts. The system includes factory-assembled DB75,000-lb. stainless steel load cells, which can withstand the weight of up to 150 percent of published load cell capacity. A wide selection of EPR+ Plus capacities, platform sizes, and types suits various applications.
Rodent protection is now standard via integral conduit throughout each scale module. Heavy-duty, no-bolt access covers over load cells and surge-suppression boxes offer protection of all components, yet are easily removed for routine cleaning.
Owing to the company's Con-Lock system that enables material to flow through I-beams and lock into place, the concrete deck EPR+ Plus arrives ready for pouring of the mix Û no rebar is needed. Every scale includes receiving brackets for installation of optional side rails; and, mounting brackets are flush with the scale deck to accommodate pit-type applications.
A range of weight indicators supports the ability to print and send weight data to a PC. Options such as Ethernet communications or badge readers provide additional truck weight management.
