Caution
you’ve replaced a mechanical sensor, air
transducer, or flexmeters.
Your Cleral onboard weighing system is a
tool. Learning to work with it can only make
it more efficient. Read this manual before
using your Kiload.
Slopes
A slightly sloped terrain will not affect the
accuracy of your scale, but the bigger the
inclination the higher the error margin.
Learning to work with your Cleral system
will ultimately give you better precision in
these conditions.
Weigh bridge (certified)
Acquire the weights needed to calibrate
using a certified weigh bridge (Platform
scale). Whenever possible, record the
weights while sitting on the weigh bridge.
Technical Support
Pneumatic connections
For technical help, consult your local
authorized Cleral dealer.
Make sure that all air connections are
made according to the installation
diagrams.
Warranty
Cleral products are warranted against
defects in workmanship for a period of one
year from the original date of purchase.
The defective covered product will be
repaired or replaced by the manufacturer.
The defective product needs to be sent by
your local dealer to Cleral with proof of
purchase. This warranty does not cover
injury or damages caused by the use of
this product. It also does not cover all costs
connected with the replacement part
( labor, shipping and handling or other).
Cleral will not be liable for fines issued for
overweight violations while using its
products.
Lift Axles
Lift axles should always be in the UP
position while acquiring and recording the
weights in the Kiload. If the vehicle is
equipped with an automatic lift axle
activation device, then you must acquire
and record the weights while the lift axle is
engaged (touching the ground) for both
empty and heavy calibration. And use the
system with lift axle down.
Fuel
Contact your local Cleral dealer for repairs
and replacement parts.
To enhance the performance of your
Kiload, fuel tanks must be full to acquire
and record the weights.
Thank you for choosing and trusting
CLÉRAL CANADA
Air leaks
To contact Cleral Inc.
A leak in the pneumatic system will falsify
the pressure readings for calibration.
Thus , you will end up with erratic and false
weight readings. You most likely have a
leak if the readings are not stable while
your vehicle is stationary. A frequent start
of the compressor is a good indication of
an air leak.

Acquiring straight body truck weights 4X2 6x4 and 8x4
The first step in the calibration of a straight body truck is to weigh the steering
axle (Channel A). The next step is to weigh the entire vehicle (Total weight) Then
determine the weight of the drive axle(s) (ChannelB) by doing the math.

Acquiring tractor-trailer weights
The first step is to weigh the tractor (Channel A) then weigh the entire rig (Total).
The difference between the total weight and the weight of channel A is the weight
of the semi-trailer (Channel B).

Acquiring steering axle weight ( Instrumented or Virtual)
The first step is to determine the weight of the steering axle (Channel A or S) and
then weigh the tractor. The tractor weight minus the weight of the steering axle
gives you the weight of the drive axle(s) (Channel B). The weight of the trailer is
acquired by weighing only the semi-trailer or by taking the total weight of the rig
and subtracting the total weight of the tractor (T-(A or S + B))

Determining calibration points
Calibrating the 3 points of Multi-Cal
This function requires three FULL
calibration points instead of one. Here
is how to determine the optimal
multicalibration curve.
After determining the 3-point loading
target, move the loading and
calibration of point 1, 2 and 3. It
important to observe the loading
progress from lightest to heaviest.
First, determine the average weight
you are carrying on the channel to be
calibrated (F2 = 14000kg). Next,
determine the weight above the
average weight that will never be
exceeded (F3 = 17 000 kg). Then
determine the minimum load you
w o u l d c a r r y ( F a 1 = 11 0 0 0 k g ) .
Thereafter, it is necessary to calibrate
these three points depending on
weight targets.
IMPORTANT
Before doing the MultiCal calibration, it
is mandatory to have previously
calibrated the empty weights.
Steps to follow
1 - Load the truck according to point 1
2 - Go on a platform scale to determine the
weights.
4 - Go to the full calibration menu.
5 - Adjust the weight according to point 1
Repeat these steps for point 2 and 3.
Note!
You must respect the legal load limits
at all time.
Example based on channel A
In the case of our example, the curve
of Cs suspension illustrates the
deformation of the suspension by
weight. Dp1 segment represents the
calibration curve to a single point. As
noted, there are differences in weight
between this line and the curve Cs
Dp1. The curve is the curve of Cp3
multi-calibration. Note that the
differences are considerably reduced.

TARE (Zero)
Tare resets the original weight of the empty
truck. To do this, you must be sure that the
vehicle is EMPTY and is on as flat a surface as
possible or on a weigh bridge. It is
recommended that the tare be done when the
fuel tank is full.

Configuring weight limits
You need to enter three weight limits. The first one is the weight at which you
would want to start the light to start flashing. The second is, the weight at which
you want the light to stay lit. The third is the weight which you want the light to
turn off. The closer you get to the second weight, the faster the light will flash.
When the light stays lit, this is when you want to stop loading because if the light
turns off on its own, you are OVER the weight limit. The following legend shows
the progression.

IMPORTANT

If you enter heavy weight values in the EMPTY CAL with a loaded vehicle, an
automatic Zero will be performed by the unit. When this happens, operators
usually realize that it is not possible to enter the heavy weight numbers.

ERROR CODES
No AIR
This error code indicates that the sensor does not detect pressure in the air
transducer. No Air code is triggered if the pressure is below the selected limit. See
Limit No Air. Physically verify that there air pressure reaches the transducer. If
there is no pressure, find the source of the problem. If there is pressure and it is
not detected by the transducer, make sure that everything is connected and
powered. If the problem persists, consult you local dealer.
Unstable air pressure readings
When in Gage reading, if the air transducer relays unstable readings that
gradually go down to raise after a while, you may be in the presence of an air
leak. Find and repair the leak(s). The leaks makes the reading go down and when
the compressor reacts, the readings will raise again.
Non repeatable air pressure readings
In most cases the problem comes from a faulty height leveling valve. To check if
your valve is ok, in gage reading mode, dump and fill the suspension at least ten
(10) times. If the air pressure does not repeat within 0,5 psi, check and replace or
repair the faulty valve.

Factors
The factor is the coefficient multiplied with the Gage less its zero that produces

You can manually adjust the factor on the
channel. You can increase it, decrease it or
reduce it to zero. However, remember that
this changes your calibration.
When the factor is flashing, press the arrows to

channel A. The S is for the virtual channel of the
steering axle. You can change the factor, but not

previous instructions.
In the multi-point calibration, you erase a factor
or factors specifically to redo calibration points
that have similar weights to the point that just
reset. It is recommended in cases where the
calibration is questionable to erase all three
calibration points and recalibrate.

There will be two new calibration points and FA2’ and FA3. The new curve will
pass through: FA1 - FA2 '- FA3. If the error point would have been FA1, it would
be necessary to delete all three factors and redo a complete calibration again.

Precision problems?
It is easy to detect a precision problem on the total gross weight. However we
need to pin point the source of the problem in order to fix it. In other words, we
need to know from which channel the error is coming from.

The first step is to compare the Kiload and Weigh Bridge empty weights per
channel
Note and compare the empty weight for each channel. If there is a significant
difference, proceed to adjust the empty weights as previously explained. Make
sure that the vehicle is empty when adjusting empty weights.
Then we compare the heavy weights for each channel. If there is a significant
difference, proceed to adjust the heavy weights as previously explained. Make
sure that the vehicle is full when adjusting full weights.
If the error is still there, repeat the previous steps to confirm that you have found
the source.
Note!
Follow the same steps for each additional channel.
