Tramanco system granted TCA approval

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) yesterday announced the type-approval of a Tramanco On-Board Mass (OBM) system.

Chris Koniditsiotis, TCA CEO in an issued statement celebrated the annoucement.

“Tramanco Pty Ltd is to be applauded for obtaining type-approval of its CHEK-WAY Eliminator offering,” he said. “This makes Tramanco amongst the first suppliers to have achieved type-approval of an OBM System.”

Tramanco’s CHEK-WAY Eliminator is a Category A OBM system.

As a Category A OBM system it electronically display mass information to drivers and/or loaders.

“All categories of type-approval are subject to an assessment of the performance-based requirements contained in the OBM System Functional and Technical Specification, comprising the accuracy, reliability and robustness – as well as tamper evidence and security relevant to the type-approval category of OBM systems,” said Koniditsiotis.

“TCA type-approval also extends to a business and probity assessment of OBM System suppliers, which verifies the capacity of suppliers to meet the expectations of consumers and end-users.”

“With OBM Systems serving many end user needs, type-approval caters for a range of uses without being hardwired to one policy need,” said Koniditsiotis.

Roger Sack, Tramanco Managing Director said he was proud to have the CHEK-WAY Eliminator OBM System type-approved by TCA.

“The Australian-made CHEK-WAY weighing products are modular systems designed to cater for multiple axle groups, which can support up to eight connected axle groups at any one time,” he said.

“Mass measurements can also be displayed through our Phone-WAY product, an Android-based remote weights display, which offers greater flexibility for users.”

“The CHEK-WAY Eliminator system can be used to monitor the loading and unloading of a vehicle and provides overload warnings, calibration adjustments to allow for axle lifting and other conditions, and the remote reporting of alarms and weights,” said Sack.
