Jack Weigh Kit
Technology to the Limits... and Beyond
ISO 9001:2000
Intercomp’s wireless and
cabled Jack Weigh Kits
are the aviation industry’s most user
friendly, accurate and widely used top of
jack weighing systems.
ISO 9001:2000 Registered
Intercomp’s field proven weighing
technology utilizes the world’s highest
quality load cells for the utmost in
accuracy and ease-of-use.
With the most precise load cells
available on the market today,
Intercomp makes your weighing
program as efficient as it is accurate.
Intercomp has over 25 years of
experience in building high
capacity/high accuracy weighing
equipment and can meet your
most stringent weighing requirements
with ease.
• Intercomp features the
industry’s highest quality
load cells which only require
3 calibration points. Other
inferior load cells require
10 or more.
• Intercomp’s high quality load
cells feature User Configurable
Calibration points for optimal
linearity calculations.
• Higher quality load cells
reduce the calibration
workload by only requiring
3 points rather than multiple
fixed points.
Load Cell Output
Calibration Point
• Lower quality load cells
require numerous calibration
points to correct poor
linearity performance.
• More calibration points require
more time and money be
spent in the calibration lab.
JW ™ Digital Output Load Cell
At the heart of the Jack Weigh Kit is Intercomp’s technologically advanced digital
output load cell. The JW DOLC’s have revolutionized the weighing of aircraft. With
DOLC’s, the analog to digital conversion is performed at the cell itself. This means
each cell is its own independently operating scale.
Any JW DOLC can be plugged into any channel or wireless node - there are no
precalibrated or color coded channels. And, if a cell, cable or wireless node is
damaged, simply replace the unit with an off-the-shelf spare. All Intercomp CPU's,
cables, wireless nodes and load cells are completely interchangeable, there's no
need to return the entire kit to the manufacture for repair or recalibration. This
feature sharply reduces repair and shipping costs, yet ensures you will seldom be
without your Jack Weigh Kit.
Our advanced digital output signal is so
powerful that it eliminates EMI/RFI, but yet
maximizes linearity to provide full range
accuracy of ±0.1%. This field proven
technology increases repeatability and virtually
eliminates side loading.
• Low profile design ensures each load cell will
fit nearly any jack to jack point envelope.
• Interchangeable adapters accommodate a
wide range of loading fixtures as described
in SAE-AS33559
• Flexibility to weigh a wide variety of
aircraft with a standard load cell used in
conjunction with readily available custom
interchangeable adapters.
Jack Weigh Kit™
Intercomp’s Jack Weigh Kit comes complete with the AC100 CPU, JW load
cells, interconnect cables, jack and a/c adapters, battery charger, manuals and
MIL-SPEC 810D carrying case to fully protect and transport the system.
A leveling kit complete with all accessories is available as an option. Intercomp
also manufactures a complete line of calibration systems traceable to the National
Institute of Standards and Technology.
Each Intercomp Jack Weigh Kit is
designed and tested to meet the
stringent United States Air Force
specifications for accuracy, reliability,
serviceability and performance. The
design criteria, combined with proven
field performance, ensures that the
Jack Weigh Kit is the industry leader
for aircraft weighing systems. With its
combination of cells and capacities,
the Jack Weigh Kit can weigh any
aircraft in the world.

Wireless Jack Weigh Kit
AC100™ Central Processing Unit
Intercomp’s wireless Jack Weigh Kit eliminates the use of cables. No
longer will the user need to run cables between each load cell and the
CPU. All Intercomp wireless Jack Weigh kits include:
• Complete Interchangeability: If a wireless node is ever broken or
damaged, simply replace it with a spare radio. The load cell does not
need to be returned for service
Intercomp’s cabled Jack Weigh Kits come standard with the proven
AC100 Central Processing Unit. The AC100 gives you the most sought
after functions and features, yet remains user friendly at all times.
All Intercomp cabled Jack Weigh Kits include:
• Easy to read jumbo sized 4 line x 20 character alphanumeric
LCD screen.
• Multiple Display Options: The Wireless Jack Weigh Kit can be used
with either a PDA, AC100 CPU or PC. If any of these devices are
damaged and rendered inoperable, another display device can be
used as a spare without programming or calibration.
• Push button menus for computations, memory storage, and full
c.g. printout.
• Cable Backup (optional): Intercomp offers a wireless load cell kit
that allows for the use of cables as a backup system.
• Calibration performed through use of the keypad.
• Allowing this cable backup is critical in ensuring that the kit is
operable in all conditions. There are many conditions that can
affect the ability of a load cell kit to transmit over a wireless signal.
These include: interference in a hangar, deployed overseas, or rules
on transmitting a wireless signal. Not having a cable backup renders
the load cell kit worthless if there is ever a problem with the wireless
signal. By having this cable backup, you are ensured to always
complete your weigh job.
• Operates on all power sources.
• Plug-and-Play capability with no switches to flip or knobs to turn.
• Meets EMI-RFI requirements of MIL-SPEC 461.
• Fully weatherproof.
