VPG to Showcase Revere and Evergreen Weigh Aircraft Weighing Systems at the 64th Annual NBAA Meeting and Convention

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) today announced that its VPG On-Board Weighing division will be demonstrating its Revere and Evergreen Weigh brand aircraft weighing systems at the 2011 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) meeting and convention, being held Oct. 10 to 12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

At booth N1533, VPG On-Board Weighing will be exhibiting its Revere JetWeigh-5™ and wireless JetWeigh-W™ jack point aircraft weighing systems, in addition to the Evergreen Weigh Road Runner™ platform wheel weigher. All solutions offer a system capacity range of 15,000 pounds to 600,000 pounds and high accuracy of ±0.1% of applied load, or ±0.02% of channel capacity, whichever is greater. For robust and reliable operation, the systems feature hermetically sealed stainless steel load cells.

The JetWeigh-5 and JetWeigh-W both offer three to five channels, with synchronized sampling of all weight channels for accurate measurement and G-factor compensation between calibration and operation locations to enable simple operation. The JetWeigh-5 offers a user-friendly color touch screen display and features automatic CG, MAC, LEMAC, and %MAC calculation functions. The wireless JetWeigh-W features a handheld PC terminal user interface and provides an operation range of more than 220 feet.

The Road Runner platform wheel weigher offers one to four channels of input for weighing, RS-232 for PC data storage, and an operating temperature range of -10ºC to +50ºC. The Road Runner is designed for easy transportation and quick setup in a matter of minutes. Using the digital indicator, operators can display the weight of each weigh pad individually, or the sum of any combination of pads.

Further information about the JetWeigh-5, JetWeigh-W, Road Runner, and other VPG On-Board Weighing products is available at www.weighingonboard.com.
