There are three categories of type-approved OBM systems (categories A, B and C) which meet the needs of different stakeholders. Category A OBM systems electronically display mass information to drivers or loaders.

All categories of type-approval are subject to an assessment of the performance-based requirements contained in the OBM System Functional and Technical Specification, of which the E-Max OBM System meet.

The Managing Director of E-Max, Phillip Carthew, said, “We feel a great sense of achievement in gaining TCA type-approval for the Air-Weigh LoadMaxx onboard weighing system.

“TCA’s type-approval of OBM Systems is a world first, showing global leadership in the transport industry, and we are very pleased to be a part of that.”

OBM systems are used for a diverse range of use, and type-approval brings reassurance of having met high levels of accuracy, reliability and robustness requirements. It also gives assurance of meeting tamper evidence and security levels relevant to the type-approval category.

“We’ve drawn upon the best resources from around the globe to satisfy TCA’s performance requirements, and to meet the needs of stakeholders,” said Mr Carthew.

“Being independently assessed provides a high-level of confidence for our products’ performance both from a software and hardware perspective.”

E-Max’s Air-Weigh LoadMaxx weighing technology allows seamless communication between prime movers and trailers.
