Winner of overload protection award

Vehicle Weighing Solutions (VWS) has won an award at the Van Fleet World Honours 2017 for its VOPS2 (Van Overload Protection System).

VOPS2 load sensors are installed between axle and body of a vehicle to detect the load applied to the axles. The system provides data via an in-cab indicator display, giving the driver clear net, gross and axle weights for the front and rear of the vehicle.

VOPS2 can be fitted to most types of commercial vehicle from one tonne and upwards, and does not rely on springs or transducers.

One of the judges, Dan Gilkes, editor of Van Fleet World, said: “We were really impressed with the system. As more than 80% of the vans stopped and weighed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency last year were found to be overweight, VOPS2 could provide a vital safety resource, particularly for fleets that regularly run near or at full weight capacity.”
