Something that might not be immediately obvious is that an operator can get more than one life out of the Axtec OnBoard Axle Load Indicator.
Designed with the minimum number of components which means there is less to go wrong in the first place, it also means the system is fast to de-install.
And that means it can be reinstalled onto a new vehicle.
So when you buy a new van, there’s no need to buy a new OnBoard Load Indicator. And because the system uses the same sensors regardless of the van, it is pretty much interchangeable with any van on the road.
So if you’re switching from a Movano to a Transit or a Daily to a Crafter, the system will simply transfer over.
Size doesn’t matter either. Replacing a 3.5t van with a 4t van makes no difference. Even moving up to a 7.5t truck wouldn’t cause any problems either. The system is simply reprogrammed with the new calibration information and it’s ready to go.

The system is pretty much future proof, using the very latest touch screen technology, which means you wouldn’t be installing old technology into a shiny new van.
Axtec OnBoard shows all the information a driver needs all the time. Axle and gross weights are all shown the second the ignition is switched on. Using a colour display, legal weights are shown in green, anything over 80% is shown in amber and all overloads in flashing red.
Outputs for connection to a tracking device are included with every system using a standard output. That means if you change your tracking system too, Axtec OnBoard will be able to communicate with it.
And the customer calibration facility works with all vans or trucks old or new too.
The age of the system has no effect on its ability to be recalibrated. So it could be fitted to 2, 3 or even more vans.
We have a number of customers who take advantage of the ability to de-install and re-install.
It’s a great way of keeping the cost of running a van down.
