California - Mountain Pass CVEF Weigh-in-Motion

Project Description:

This project provides a Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) sorter system for a new Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility (CVEF) near Mountain Pass, California (just west of the Nevada/California border).

The Weigh-in-Motion system will be used by California Highway Patrol to select and direct commercial vehicles into the CVEF.

A total of sixteen Single Load Cell (SLC) scales have been installed in double-threshold configurations at the Mountain Pass CVEF site. These double-threshold configurations include full-lane-width WIM scales at the advance, sorter and ramp locations to achieve the highest level of WIM accuracy possible.

In addition to the SLC scales, IRD supplied and integrated many new features including a very complex and newly designed PLC console, a camera system, Variable Message Signs (VMS), an over height detector, a piezo compliance site, and iSINC® WIM electronics.
