Axtec’s market leading OnBoard axle load indicator has received approval from the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) allowing it to be fitted as original equipment by vehicle manufacturers.
The system is the first and only one of its type to receive this approval.
Approval from VCA for use in Europe not only meant rigorous testing of samples of the Axtec OnBoard but also stringent checking of the company’s quality system, testing methods and procedures to ensure national and international requirements are met.
Keith Gresham, Axtec’s Managing Director, says: "Obtaining VCA approval means that Axtec OnBoard can be fitted by vehicle manufacturers anywhere in Europe. It’s a huge endorsement for the product together with the manufacturing and testing functions we have".
Also known as e-marking, the VCA approval permits vehicle manufacturers to install the system without compromising their Whole Vehicle Type Approval.
Gresham says: "Vehicle manufacturers are increasingly being asked for systems to enable their vehicles to be operated efficiently and legally, without contravening weight limits. This important advance enables them to offer their customers Axtec OnBoard Axle Load Indicators, installed at the factory".
