One person can easily install weighpads on any compacted, level surface for weighing vehicles because they are lightweight and portable. These weighscales are useful in mobile enforcement and also for checking truck axle weights. As with any other weighing machine, proper maintenance and calibration are required to ensure its accuracy and reliability. 

Here are five important tips on the maintenance and calibration of weigh pads:

1. Regular Cleaning: Regular cleaning has to be undertaken to remove dirt, soil, compromise, or other elements that might affect the functioning of load cells. A soft brush may be used to wipe away dirt on the surface and around the sensors. A soft brush may be used to wipe away dirt on the surface and around the sensors. The display screen may be cleaned with mild soap. No harsh chemicals or abrasives should be used, which will damage the digital unit.

Essae Digitronics, India’s leading weighbridges, has developed the most versatile weighpads for use in mobile enforcement and highways.

2. Prevent Damage and Corrosion: Regular inspection of weighpads is required to check for dents, cracks, or corrosion. The load cells have to be checked, as well as the cable connections. Physical damage can compromise the accuracy of weighing data.

3. Calibration: Calibrating the weighpads according to manufacturer recommendations helps ensure weighing accuracy. Calibration is usually done by setting the scale to zero and keeping known weights on it to observe the reading. Calibration is useful to sensitise the sensors in weighpads, known as the load cells, as they are extremely sensitive. The firmware and software may be upgraded to fix bugs and improve functionality. A weighpad is a convergence of digital and physical devices.

4. Protecting the Device: When not in use, protective covers may be used to prevent corrosion or damage. The device has to be sorted in a dry, temperature-controlled environment.

5. Handling and Storage: Weighpads have to be handled with care. Avoid dropping heavy weights that may cause damage to the device. Proper handling and storage help keep the machine in good working condition.

Regular functional checks ensure that display units and load cells are functioning properly and take preventive measures before major problems arise in the weighing system.
