Hubodometers

Veeder-Root Hubodometers are used to record distance or area covered by rolling stock, primarily commercial Over-The-Road trailers, large buses and agricultural equipment. They record every revolution in either direction. The design uses a counterbalance to prevent orbiting (which could stop measurement or undercount the distance) ensuring accurate counts at high speeds or rough terrain.

Veeder-Root Wheel End Hubodometers Are Well- Known For:

  • Durable Design – A rugged, hermetically sealed enclosure protects high-quality components from harsh road and weather conditions such as water, dust, and fog.
  • Unwavering Accuracy – Veeder Root hubodometer are uniquely designed with weights to counteract occurrences of orbiting, avoiding inaccuracy.
  • Reliable Readings - whether electrical or mechanical, all Veeder Root hubodometers will dependably provide distance traveled through an easy-to-read window.
  • Over a Century of Experience – Veeder Root continues to build on a solid foundation of building industry-proven counting devices

What is a hubodometer?

Hubodometers are measurement tools mounted to the wheel end hub of various types of rolling stock equipment, designed to count each rotation of the wheel, translate wheel size to a unit of measurement, and present the count on an electrical or mechanical display.

What is the purpose of a hubodometer?

Fleet operators and managers depend on hubodometers to accurately measure the distance or area covered by their equipment, often rented or leased. Common applications include maintenance scheduling, determining lease charges and calculating cost per mile for rentals. Hubodometers are the least expensive, most accurate way to record miles or kilometers on a trailer or commercial bus.

How does a hubodometer work?

A hubodometer is mounted to the center axis of the wheel. As the wheel turns, forwards or backwards, the hubodometer enclosure also turns. However, the interior drivetrain of the hubodometer remains stationary allowing it to count each revolution of the wheel and translate the revolutions into miles, kilometer or acres.
