7563 Truck Scales

Orthotropic Steel-Deck Scales

Model 7563 is a steel deck scale for weighing over-the-road legal trucks and certain off-road vehicles. The design is flexible and can be tailored to match your specific application requirements. The orthotropic design provides reliable weighing over a long service life, while POWERCELL® load cells transmit an extremely powerful signal for accurate, dependable weighing. In addition, the steel deck design is ideal for operations that need their scale up and running quickly.


Orthotropic Design

  Model 7563 easily handles the forces generated by normal truck traffic, distributing concentrated loads more effectively than standard I-beam deck structures. The robust orthotropic design is similar to the one used on the Golden Gate Bridge and many other highway bridges around the world.


Lightning Protection

  The specially designed StrikeShield™ lightning protection system helps prevent costly downtime by using multiple levels of protection to safeguard your entire scale system: load cells, cables, and terminal. It is the only system that has been tested by third-party laboratories and withstood multiple lightning strikes without failure.

Options and Accessories 

  Choose from a large selection of options and accessories that let you tailor a truck scale to fit your application. Whether you are adding a manhole, side rails, wireless remote display, unattended terminal, or other options, upgrading your scale is simple.
