					              Portable Low Speed Weighing In Motion
                              MASS-5000L-WIDE Truck Scale
                             Superior on-site weighing logistics
The MASS-5000L-WIDE is a portable Low Speed Weigh In Motion (LSWIM) axle scale from Mikros
Systems. Weighing is accomplished while a vehicle is slowly driven over the system, thereby saving time in
comparison to static weighing. The use of extra wide (1,5m) sensors greatly improves the weighing
logistics on-site as no time is wasted with vehicle alignment.


• The MASS-5000L-WIDE is ideal for low speed screening
  of trucks for law enforcement purposes thus reducing
   the workload at time-consuming static scales.
• Loading of vehicles to ensure proper weight distribution
  according to regulations. This maximises load efficiency
  and reduces the risk of prosecution.
• Bulk yard stock control for semi-permanent installations.
• Collection of high quality load
  statistics at remote sites.

                                                              • Cost effective.
