Kimax 2 radio fits your DIN slots ....

and offer you a load control of you vehicle, either as a solo instrument including interface for SG Sensors, or as a display unit which needs contact to one or more Kimax 2 Sensors through the power line device bus, which can act on the existing electrical system on your vehicle.

  • Kimax 2 calculates the current axle loads based on input from SG sensors and displays this figure as a three-digit value.
  • The Kimax 2 On-Board Load Control is an electronic weighing system which can be used in all vehicles whose axles or axle groups are equipped with  steel spring suspension system.
  • Due to the modular construction, the product is very flexible and can be individually adapted to most vehicle conditions.

 

... and warns when limits are exceeded

Kimax 2 has two separately adjustable alarm levels. Exceeding alarm level 1 is indicated by a flashing diode for the individual axle which has exceeded its limit.

Alarm 2 switches in an internal electronic “relay” when the total weight for the vehicle is exceeded. The relay signal can be used as ON/OFF input for another unit, for example a tracking GPS or an external lamp.

Kimax 2 helps to achieve economical transportation, avoids fines and simultaneously optimizes the cargo weight.

* Tractor/trailer readings call for a Kimax 2 radio installed in the truck and a Kimax 2 sensor installed on the trailer.

Axle load measurement

Kimax 2 uses the linearity between strain in the front axle and the load above the axle.

For the rear axle group Kimax 2 uses the relation between strain in the leaf springs and load above the axle.

By using two reference points for each axle (empty weight and weight at maximum load) and the currently measured strain/air pressure, Kimax 2 calculate the current axle load with an accuracy of 2% of the maximum load for each axle

Basic operation

The strain in the front axle will increase linearly with the load above the axle.

Load of the front axle is measured by one SG sensor installed in the center of the front axle.

Depending on load of the vehicle, the rear axle springs will deflect.

Load of the rear axle group is measured by two SG sensors, one on each spring left side and right side.

 SG sensors and air circuits

Kimax 2 radio air is available in several versions, each P/N in above tabs is tailored for a specific No of axles and configuration of suspension system.

A SG sensor installed on a leaf spring suspended steering front axles offer you same accuracy as known from an air suspended steering front axle.

For a double axle group the axle load is measured by two SG sensors, one on each spring. Kimax 2 calculates the current axle load for each axle based on the current SG sensor signals.

• When less accuracy is enough for you, one SG sensor on each axle or axle group is available too

Optional:

Kimax 2 is exactly as flexible as your vehicle:

Do you have a tractor equipped with air suspension on both front axles and rear axles combined with a lift axle? No problem!

Do you have a truck with 2 front axles equipped with steel springs and two rear axles divided in left hand and right hand air circuits? No
problem!

Do you want to couple a trailer or semitrailer on the above vehicles? No problem!

Do you want to couple a low bed trailer equipped with hydraulic suspension on a tractor equipped with air suspension? No problem!

Do you want to swap from one trailer to another trailer? No problem!
– Individual calibration values are stored in the Kimax unit installed on each vehicle.
