SAW III Axle Weighers

Portable Enforcement Scales

The SAW III is a portable wheel load weigher suitable for commercial vehicle weight enforcement in North America and internationally. Rugged designs and long service life have made the SAW series of scales popular with commercial vehicle enforcement agencies around the world. SAW III portable scales are EC approved with OIML R76 and CE certificates of conformity and NTEP Certified to NIST Handbook 44.

The SAW III has a large backlit display making it easy to read weights from the scales when measuring wheel loads. SAW III scales can also be connected so that axle weights may be read from one side of the vehicle being weighed. Using a laptop with IRD's software and a Bluetooth connection is an option that allows enforcement personnel to view weights from a safer distance. The software also permits printing of wheel and axle weights to a thermal printer.

The SAW III maintains the same durable weigh pad as previous SAW models, while offering many updates and improvements:

  • Wheels to simplify maneuverability
  • Single NiMH battery pack
  • Battery status display bar
  • Improved charge cycle (2 hours)
  • Charge control LED indicators
  • IP 65 rated interface connectors
  • Faster analog-to-digital converter for higher output rate
  • New Zero-Setting function
  • Bluetooth® capability and IRD software enable multiple scale outputs on a single display
