One of these sensors is installed on the front steer axle of every truck or tractor, and possibly also on the rear axles and/or trailer axles, depending on the suspension types. The Wireless Deflection Sensor is needed for any axle or suspension that isn’t air ride: Walking beam suspensions require two sensors, and leaf spring suspensions require one or two. With our Easy Clamp system, the Wireless Deflection Sensor quickly and easily installs on most axle beams, walking beams, or trunnion tubes. Weldable brackets are available for special cases.

As for the rear axle(s) of your straight truck, the type and quantity of sensors depends on the suspension type: Air ride suspensions use the Strong Weigh Wireless Air Pressure Sensor, which easily tees into the air line that supplies the suspension’s air bags. For typical air ride suspensions, all of the air bags share a common air supply line, and thus require only one Wireless Air Pressure Sensor. However, some air ride trucks are configured with each axle having it’s own air supply, usually so that one axle can be lifted when not needed, and in this case one Wireless Air Pressure Sensor is required for each axle.Walking beam suspensions, like the Hendickson Haulmax suspension for example, use two Wireless Deflection Sensors installed on the walking beams – one sensor on the driver side and one on the passenger side. Leaf spring suspensions on drive axles will typically have one Wireless Deflection Sensor installed on the trunnion tube.
Uncommon Truck Designs
StrongWeigh can be configured to work for many different kinds of vehicle designs. If you have an unlisted, uncommon, or unique vehicle design we can work together to make StrongWeigh work for you.
