Motus decided to complete and extend the certificate according to the OIML R134 standard for dynamic truck weighing.

MHS enables a truck to drive over a scale and be weighed with high accuracy.
Motus Weighing's product MHS has been awarded a type approval in the United Kingdom by Brittish NMO (National Measurement Office). The type approval has been issued under "Section 12" in the Brittish regulation and is "legal for trade" in the UK as well as in all Member States of the European Union under the regulation "mutual recognition".

During several days the British National Measure Office (NMO) has tested MHS at Malma Gård in Sweden. The tests are performed according to the international standard OIML R134 which are used for vehicle weighing without stopping - or dynamic weighing which is the technical term. Several vehicle combinations are tested - loaded and unloaded - and...
Today Motus completed, together with the partner Precia-Molen, the installation of a shorter weigh bridge (6 m) at Scania's production facility in Södertälje, Sweden. It enables Scania to weigh all produced chassis without stopping. All transports from Scania will also be weighed - both total weight and axle weights.
The first version of Motus Weighing's IT-system for identifying, registration and administration och weighing results is ready!
The Swedish Patent Office (PRV) has approved yet another Motus Weighing patent today covering a part of the methods Motus uses to calculate very accurate weighing results.
Kristjan Stefansson starts Motus Weighing and will be focusing on sales and project management.
Scania buys dynamic weighing from Motus to be integrated in the production facilities. All produced vehicles will be weighed individually when driven over a 7 m weigh bridge.
