Air-Weigh, a manufacturer of onboard weighing systems for commercial vehicles based in Eugene, Oregon, has debuted the BinMaxx Cloud. The product combines the features of its front-loading BinMaxx Scale with a cloud-based portal. With the ability to access container content weight for individual commercial containers, pickup location and detailed customer information from any smart device or computer, back office users can view, manage and export data.
The BinMaxx Cloud’s new front-end loader arm scale uses cloud-based technology to collect and store data automatically via Bluetooth technology. BinMaxx Cloud identifies and records each lift daily.
“This is an exciting product that is going to serve the industry well,” Martin Ambros, Air-Weigh CEO, says. “It’s an opportunity for customers to better understand who is over utilizing and who is underutilizing their services, which is invaluable knowledge for managing operations.”
In addition to storing data securely, BinMaxx Cloud is designed to give users the ability to view and manage detailed customer information. A portal displays container weight, lift locations, pickup fees and expected landfill charges. Additionally, a user can generate detailed lift reports in spreadsheet and PDF formats.
BinMaxx Cloud is a weigh-in-motion scale with arm mounted sensors. It comes with a Bluetooth transmitter that uploads daily lift data to the provided base station upon a vehicle’s return to the yard. Once the upload is complete, data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed through the user portal from any computer or smart device.
“You’re purchasing a scale, but you’re really purchasing weight information that will allow you to optimize your company’s profitability. However, this weight information is useless in the cab of the truck. It must be available to management back at the office, where the analysis of the data is most valuable. BinMaxx Cloud is how this data transfer is seamlessly achieved,” Jack Ewing, Air-Weigh’s east region sales manager, says.
