WS 500 light capacity platform scales provide a low cost solution for general purpose weighing of any item up to 500 kg capacity. With a 1 part in 5000 resolution these platform scales give a weighing performance of 500 kg x 100 g. These well designed low profile platforms incorporate four full load bridge loadcells with self levelling, anti-slip feet to give a solid base in use.
The large 915 mm x 915 mm, platform has a tough, mild steel understructure and a stainless steel top. 5 metres of cable connects the base to the stainless steel indicator pod which features clear 17 mm high LCD display digits. A plastic display pod bracket is included to enable the indicator to be wall or bench mounted.
Key display features are: on/off, push button tare to enable container weights to be removed and net weight only displayed; kg/lb switching to give readings in either metric or imperial measures and hold/print, which allows the weight to be either frozen even when the item being weighed is removed or the weight to be transmitted to a printer or other peripheral device.
The scales feature auto zero tracking to automatically compensate for small fluctuations in zero such as a build up of material on the platform.
To extend battery life an auto-off feature is standard, with the scale switching itself off after 2 minutes of inactivity.
