NSK has developed a hydraulic load detection device that prevents the overloading of commercial vehicles and improves safety. This hydraulic load detection device is easily attached to the suspension of vans, light trucks and other commercial vehicles and enables precise weight measurement on the go.
This on-board device features a flexible diaphragm that deforms under load, thereby increasing pressure in the fluid chamber. Load is calculated based on the increase in pressure.
A double layer seal is employed to prevent leakage. In the unlikely event of a hydraulic fluid leak the suspension spring will only extend a tiny amount to close a gap above the piston, resulting in no adverse effects on the suspension system. The load detection device also features an ultra-thin (25 mm), compact design to avoid significantly shortening the suspension stroke.
