Airtec obtains OBM system type-approval

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has announced the type-approval of Airtec Corporation’s On-Board Mass (OBM) system model 89AXM Series (category A).

Category A OBM systems electronically display mass information to drivers or loaders.

Airtec Corporation co-founder and Managing Director, David Hewett, said that after TCA released the OBM System Functional and Technical Specification to stakeholders, his team designed, manufactured and engineered a ‘smart’ OBM solution for Australia’s heavy vehicle industry.

“OBM systems have a diverse range of use, and type-approval brings reassurance of having met high levels
of accuracy, reliability and robustness requirements, as well as meeting tamper evidence and security levels relevant to the type-approval category,” he said. “Airtec’s experience within the transportation sector, and its expertise in developing on-board mass and inflation systems for over 20 years, contributes to a strong and focused mass management solution.”

TCA confirms these systems help transport operators to optimise and manage vehicle axle load weight in real time to improve productivity.

Earlier this month, TCA announced the type-approval of an E-Max Australia OBM system.
