If you’ve ever pulled up to a weigh station with a poor truck scale intercom system you know how frustrating it can be to communicate with the weighmaster. We provide a noise canceling intercom system to produce better clarity of communication from the truck driver to the weighmaster.
There are two problems to be solved for a truck scale intercom system:
1. The trucks are very loud and scale operators can’t understand the drivers.
2. The truck scale intercom needs lots of volume to overcome engine noise.
It’s easy enough to amplify sound so the driver can hear, but the hard part is the scale operator side. Two technologies are required to make this work well: Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). Acoustic Echo Cancellation is required for full duplex and is used to cancel feedback (squealing noise) on the truck scale intercom. Acoustic Echo Cancellation is required for full duplex and is used to cancel feedback (squealing noise) on the truck scale intercom. The higher the volume, the harder AEC has to work. It takes expensive processing power and complex, patented software algorithms to make this happen. Now add noise cancellation and it takes even more processing power. Lower cost systems don’t work well because they can’t use the quality components and engineering needed to give you both volume and understandable conversation.
- Drivers don’t have to try to reach past their mirrors to press a button since an optical sensor can be connected to the scale intercom.
- The scale intercom automatically calls the scale house giving drivers totally hands-free operation!
- The scale house operator can also press a button on the inside phone and the scale intercom will answer automatically.
- Scale house operators can talk to drivers through the full-duplex hands-free speakerphone, or an optional wireless headset.
- You can have multiple inside and outside units and you can selectively call any one of them. Scale operators can even call each other if need be. Works great for multi-lane scales
