New Van Overload Protection System for the CV Show

Vehicle Weighing Solutions will launch its latest Van Overload Protection System (VOPS2) at the CV Show.


More accurate and easier to fit than its predecessor, VOPS2 comes with an in-cab indicator displaying clear graphics for front and rear net, gross, and axle weights.

Monitoring a vehicle’s weight is vitally important for commercial drivers. In the UK, VOSA and DSA’s Your Van Best Practice Guide warns that overloaded vans could land operators or owners with a fixed penalty or court appearance. If a vehicle is involved in an accident, this could escalate into a custodial sentence.
The VOPS2 load sensor, installed between the axle and the body of the vehicle, can be fitted to any commercial vehicles ranging from 3.5-7.5-tonnes.

VWS will also exhibit its full range of on-board vehicle weighing products and axle weighers at the 2015 CV Show, including a new solar powered version of its drive-on portable wheel weigh pad, the Apollo PT300.

VWS will be at stand 4H02 at the CV Show.
