Container weighing at the twistlockInnovative weight verification

At a glance

  • Long lifetime
  • In preparation of OIML certification
  • Precise measurement results

The new SOLAS regulations require the weight of the freight containers to be verified prior to loading. In order to meet these requirements, WIKA Mobile Control offers a sensor concept with force measurement inside the twistlock.


Weighing takes place while a container is being lifted: by measuring forces at the twistlock. Static or dynamic weighing takes only moments, and the system is quick and easy to integrate into existing logistical processes.

  • Precise force measurement
  • Static or dynamic container weighing
  • Comprehensive communication to TOS (e.g. VGM, eccentricity, overloads, error codes, time stamp...)
  • Measurement accuracy < 1 %
  • Insensitive to mechanical shocks and vibration
  • Replacement of the twistlock does not influence the lifecycle of the sensor
  • IP67 protection rating
  • Acc. to EMC standards (2004/108/EC directive)
  • In preparation of OIML certification
  • Salt water resistance
  • No zero drift caused by overloads
  • No wear, deforming or sensor rupture
