No matter how demanding your application is, METTLER TOLEDO has a railroad track scale to handle the job. VRS241 scales are available for static weighing or coupled in-motion weighing. Choose between two deck options: a concrete deck with manholes and a steel deck with removable plates. Both provide easy access to the load cell network. VRS241 scales are designed to handle the massive loads applied by rail traffic. They are built to last, with the strongest structural components fully supporting the rails. METTLER TOLEDO scales are designed to weigh rail cars safely, accurately, and reliably.
The coupled in-motion (CIM) version of the scale weighs rail cars that are coupled together and moving across the scale at 3 to 5 miles per hour. It makes weighing quicker and safer by eliminating the need to uncouple rail cars and position them on a static scale.
The specially designed StrikeShield™ lightning protection system helps prevent costly downtime by using multiple levels of protection to safeguard your entire scale system: load cells, cables, and terminal. It is the only system that has been tested by third-party laboratories and withstood multiple lightning strikes without failure.
