Kistler Lineas WIM Sensors
The Kistler Lineas WIM sensors can be installed in any kind of road pavement like solid asphalt, drain asphalt and concrete. The installation is quick since the sensors are easily grouted into a slot in the pavement. They do not require any maintenance and in case of pavement rutting, the sensors topcoat can be re-ground to match the profile of the road surface. Thanks to the outstanding stability of the measurements and durability of the sensors, there is no need to perform frequent re-calibrations. You can fullyrely on the quality of the data, as performance of the Lineas WIM sensors is not affected by changing weather conditions such as large variations of temperature or humidity, rain or sunshine. The Lineas WIM sensors, in combination with the Kistler Data Logger, will provide you with reliable and accurate results for
many years.

Kistler WIM Data Logger
The Kistler WIM Data Logger is specifically designed to process signals from the Lineas WIM sensors and can be easily integrated into your overall system. Just plug it in and your system can further process a wide range of traffic data like vehicle weight, axle loads, vehicle length, axle distances, vehicle imbalance and driving behavior. The Kistler WIM Data Logger with the unique Lineas WIM sensors will guarantee accurate and highly reliable data.

System Design
From high-end to entry level WIM equipment, Kistler can provide specific products that allow you to customize your specific WIM System and meet your customer's needs. The Kistler WIM Data Logger receives signals from the Lineas WIM sensors and inductive loops installed in the traffic lanes. The software processes the sensor signals and calculates key vehicle information. The data can either be stored locally on the computer at the measurement site or sent directly to a central database. Kistler can help you select the proper WIM network and specific site locations, train employees to successfully install sensors and calibrate the system.
