Top Physician Beam Scales for Doctors Offices and Hospitals

We’ve all seen these scales over the years when we visit the doctors office. It’s the scale that you step on and then the nurse slides the weight across in order to get the beam to line up in the middle. Once the beam stops moving and is centered, your weight is determined.

The scale actually takes awhile to display the patient weight when compared to a modern digital scale. But, the traditional “doctors office scale” with the beam is generally very reliable and are built to last a long, long time.

The top choices of physician beam scales are typically the brands you would expect. HealthOMeter Professional manufacturers a wide lineup of mechanical doctors office scales which are easy to use and reliable like the model 402KL. These scales typically feature long warranties and can be ordered with or without height rod, wheels or the ability to display kg or lbs.

Seca is another popular brand of physician beam scales that hospitals and medical centers like to utilize. The model 700 from seca features slip resistant cast iron base and anti-tip column design, which also allows patients to be safely measured and weighed. The scale is printed on both sides, allowing both patient and nurse to read the weight. For the ultimate in versatility, the model 700 is also available in five other versions: kg only with stadiometer, lbs only with a stadiometer and handle, lbs only with stadiometer, lbs/kg with no stadiometer, and lbs/kg with stadiometer.

Detecto has long been a brand of choice for physicians for decades. Their world renowned eye-level mechanical weigh beam physician scales feature a heavy-duty platform, a dual-reading die-cast weigh beam which may be read from either side of the scale. Featuring long-lasting, durable steel construction with an electrostatic powder paint finish for optimum quality. Height rod, wheels, and handpost features available as options if needed.

Over the years, these are the top physician beam scales in our opinion.

BUILDUP UNDER THE TRUCK SCALE

The next step in a truck scale inspection is to inspect all critical components. Depending on the scale, the technician checks for buildup of dirt, sand, mud and debris underneath the scale. Dirt buildup under the scale platform is often one of the top reasons for scale inaccuracy.

If the scale has bumper bolts, the technician will examine these and adjust if necessary. It’s also a good time to look at any other areas that may need to be addressed periodically such as junction boxes, grounding, rubber t-grip molding, load cell caps, pit cleanliness and more depending on the type of scale. The technician also checks cabling, structural steel, and concrete approach pads.

Next, the scale technician will drive the fully loaded test truck across the scale and check the sections for consistency and accuracy. Weights are recorded and used to assist with adjusting.

certified weight cart

Next, the technician unloads all the certified test weights into a specialized weight cart. This cart is also certified by the state weights and measures department and is traceable to NIST. Then, the technician checks each section of the motor truck scale.

When we mention the word “section” we’re referring to an area of weighbridge which bears on two supporting platform points. Once the section testing of the motor truck scale has been completed, the scale can be adjusted and calibrated if needed.

scale test truck on platform

The technician can once again drive across the sections with the fully loaded test truck which includes the certified weights and certified weight cart. The section weights and the overall weights should be consistent and accurate. The calibration and inspection is now complete.

The technician loads his vehicle and reopens the scale for traffic. Once the technician has moved off the scale and the scale has reopened, the technician completes all the necessary paperwork. The inspection detail report shows both the condition of the scale and components, as well as the as found and as left test results.

Central Carolina Scale has the factory trained technicians, certified test weights, and certified test carts to accurately and thoroughly check your vehicle scales.

Frequently Asked Questions about the CAS S2000 Jr Commercial Scale

This time of the year it’s always good to start talking about price computing scales. If you currently own a set of scales, then you need to get them out and make sure they are weighing correctly and displaying correctly on both sides. You also need to make sure the battery is working if you have a built in rechargeable battery. 

The CAS S2000 Junior retail price computing scale is popular with customers who want a reliable scale that they can use at the market when selling their fruits, vegetables, candy and more. Sure there are less expensive scales out there, but often those scales are constantly needing parts while the s2000 jr keeps on working.

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve been offering this scale to our customers since 2006!  In that time, we’ve accumulated more than a few questions from our customers, either before the sale or after the sale.

So, below are the top frequently asked questions about the CAS S2000 Jr scale. Hopefully, if you’re in the market for this scale, your question will get answered below. If you still have questions be sure to contact our sales department.

cas s2000 jr price computing scale

Q: CAS S2000 Junior operation instructions?
A: Basically, the way the scale works is as follows. Place your items on the scale. Items could be strawberries, bananas, pumpkins, fudge, frozen yogurt, nails, screws, bolts etc… whatever you need to charge the customer by the pound, kilogram or ounce. Then enter your price per pound that you want to charge the customer. Once you do that, the scale will display the total charge on both the front side (operator view) and back side of the scale (customer view).

Q: Does the S2K JR scale have a change calculating function?
A: No, it does not. You might want to see the Rice Lake RS-130.

Q: If the scale includes a certificate of conformance number (CoC#) do I still have to get these scales tested and calibrated for commercial use by the state?
A: Best answer is, contact your individual state weights and measures department. Each state has their own rules regarding certified scales. Generally, you will want to purchase a NTEP approved scale with a CoC# (which the S2000 Jr has).

Q: Can you tell me if the increments are by 0.01 or 0.02 or something else?
A: The s2000 jr is available from Central Carolina Scale in three different capacities. 15 lb, 30 lb and 60 lb. Each of those is what we call “dual range”. Dual range means that the scales display a certain increment until they reach half capacity, then they display a different increment from half way to full capacity. For example, on the 60 lb capacity model… the scale will display increments of 0.01 pound on weights that range from 0 to 30 pounds. Then from 30.02 up to 60 pounds, the scale will display in increments of 0.02 lb.

Q: Does this scale weigh in Ounces?
A: Yes it does. Great for frozen yogurt shoppes.

Q: How long can the unit operate on a single charge of the battery?
A: Manufacturer says around 200 hours with no backlight and auto off functionality.

Q: What capacities are available and which should I choose?
A: 15, 30 or 60 pounds are the capacity choices. With the dual range capability, this scale is kind of like having two scales for the price of one. Most customers selling berries or smaller fruits and vegetables would choose a 30 lb or 60 lb capacity. Candy or yogurt stores might choose the 15 lb capacity.

Q: What is the battery life between charges?
A: According to CAS, Approx. 200 Hours LCD (no backlight) with a 12 hour charging time.

Q: I have your quote for the CAS s2000 JR. It costs more than the ____, why should I buy the S2000 Jr instead of the cheaper scale?
A: The s2000 JR is a reliable scale that is popular with customers. We have sold just about every retail scale out there and the s2000 jr is, in our opinion, the best overall value in price computing scales that we currently offer. Who knows, that might change sometime down the road, but as of now, this is the best scale for this type of application.  The cheaper scales, in our experience, tend to have components that fail more often. So with those scales, you tend to be replacing AC adapters and keypads more frequently. 

Q: Hi, I own a frozen yogurt shop. Will this scale read in 0.1 ounce?
A: Yes, the 15 lb capacity scale and the 30 lb capacity scale would be the best choices for you to consider.

Q: If I was interested in adding a label printer, would this scale allow me to put a custom logo or company name on the label?
A: Sorry, but the CAS S2000 JR has limited capability in this area. Logos and customization would be something you might see with CAS advanced label printing scales like the LP1000 and CL5000.

Q: Do you offer a replacement battery for the CAS S2000 JR scale?
A: Yes please call our sales department.

Q: Is this NSF certified in the US for deli usage?
A: No, this is not NSF certified. However, the scale is NTEP legal for trade.

Q: Does this scale have a rear display for the customer to see?
A: Yes this scale has rear display for weight and price info.

Q: What type of battery does the s2000 JR take? What is the replacement cost for the battery?
A: Takes a Rechargeable Battery, normally in stock. Call our sales department for price and availability.

Q: What is the platter size?
A: 12 (W) x 8.75 (D) inches.

Q: Where is the CAS S-2000 Junior scale made?
A: To the best of our knowledge, this scale is made in either China or South Korea.

Q: Do you have a better Owners Manual / User Guide?
A: Unfortunately, no. Several customers have complained over the years about the manual.

Q: How many Price look ups does the scale have?
A: 3 Direct PLU’s and 197 Indirect PLU’s

Q: Does the S2000 JR scale arrive calibrated?
A: The scales are calibrated at the factory or by us before you receive yours. So in most instances the scale should be accurate when you receive it. Note, every now and then, a delivery company will decide to treat the box like a football and that could lead to the scale being out of tolerance when you receive it.

Q: Is this scale legal for trade?
A: Yes the S2000 JR model is NTEP approved and legal for trade

Q: Why should I buy this scale from you when I can get it from other websites online?
A: We are an authorized CAS dealer and have a direct relationship with them in New Jersey. We also typically stock the scale. That means fast delivery and accurate calibration, so when you order your scale from Central Carolina Scale, you know that you will receive it quickly and it will be accurate.

Q: What are dimensions of the scale?
A: 13 x 13.6 x 4.2 inches

Q: Does the scale have dual display?
A: Yes, it has displays on the front and back showing the weight, price and total cost.

Q: Does the S2000 Junior have a battery included?
A: Yes

Q: Can this scale add up multiple transactions for a total for the customer?
A: For that, you might want to take a look at the Ohaus Aviator 7000, or many customers just have a calculator beside the scale.

Q: Can I attach a pole display to the CAS s2kjr model?
A: No, in order to have a pole display, you would need to order the pole display version of the scale.

We hope that this page has helped you out regarding the CAS S 2000 Junior retail scale. If you’re looking for a reliable price computing scale, this would be a great choice. The fact that the scale has three different capacity choices, each with “dual range” capability, make this a great choice that is both versatile and accurate.

Impacts That Factor in the Price of a Truck Scale?

A couple of years ago we discussed the ever popular how much does a truck scale cost? Today, we answer a similar question. What factors impact the price of a truck scale?

When purchasing a large piece of equipment, such as a truck scale, it can be hard to look past the price tag. However, to ensure you are investing in quality equipment that will last your business a generation or more, it is important to understand the factors impacting total purchase price. Elements such as design, craftsmanship, components and foundation of a truck scale all impact the final purchase price.

Truck Scale Design

Although the weighbridge (the structural body of a truck scale) can have varying designs depending on the manufacturer, it performs the same basic function across all brands and models: weighing trucks. Manufacturers who use a wide flange I-beam weighbridge design often have a higher steel content in their truck scales than manufacturers who utilize bent plate or steel tubing designs.

The number and size of beams in a weighbridge can also impact steel content. Designs that place larger beams closer together offer more support for vehicles than designs with smaller beams placed further apart. The support from larger beams means the deck won’t bend as easily, so the truck scale will provide accurate weighments for a longer time.

To better understand the cost of the truck scale steel content, divide the cost of the scale by its shipping weight to get the price per pound of the scale. This can be used to compare the price per pound of similar scales from different manufacturers. You may find the scale with higher steel content actually costs less on a price-per-pound basis.

Value in Scale Quality

Quality craftsmanship also contributes to a truck scale’s integrity. Purchasing from a company that invests in engineering and manufacturing ensures that there is a highly skilled team behind each and every truck scale.

The components that make up a truck scale are just as important as the team behind it. Companies who take the time to source high-quality load cells, steel, cables and other components often have a higher quality product.

Truck Scale Installation

The installation of the truck scale will also impact the final price. Installation includes excavation, the cost to pour the concrete foundation, off-loading and positioning the scale, installing electronic components and performing the initial calibration of the scale.

The truck scale installation should be performed by professional scale technicians who have experience working with scales from the manufacturer you chose. This expert installation will ensure proper scale operation and reliable weighments over the life of the scale.

A truck scale is a significant investment, and design, quality and installation all impact the final price of a truck scale. Choosing a truck scale with a heavy-duty design, superior engineering and components backed by industry experts gives you a scale that will last for a generation or more.

Weighing Trucks at the Weigh Station

Let’s see how a truck scale weigh station generally operates. In many states all across the United States, Weigh Stations are an important part of truck size and weight enforcement efforts. They help protect DOT investments in road and bridge infrastructure by identifying overweight violators. State DOT’s typically own and maintain multiple weigh stations around your state and usually the State Patrol, or some other related state agency, is responsible for their operation.

In addition to catching trucks that are overweight.  Another purpose of weigh stations is to increase highway safety by identifying defective vehicles and unqualified drivers. Hundreds of thousands of vehicles are weighed at the various weigh stations each year. For many years, the standard weigh station consisted of a small structure on each side of the interstate. Beside each structure was usually a couple of large truck scales. Depending on the number of vehicles that travel that particular road, some weigh stations might have many more truck scales on each side of the road.

In today’s modern world, some weigh stations even utilize weigh-in motion technology in addition to the stationary deck scale. As a truck goes by, usually there will be a lighting system and that will tell the truck which direction to go and if it gives them a green light to go to the by-pass lane. If it gives them a different signal, then they need to approach the actual truck scale. Then at that time, they will drive over the scales.

Many weigh stations have locations on each side of the road, so they are able weigh trucks going in each direction. Law enforcement usually watches as the trucks come through and are usually looking to see if there’s any weigh violations. Then after that they are also looking at the equipment to make sure a truck is in compliance with proper names on the side of the doors, DOT numbers, annual inspections that have been done on the equipment as well and making sure that everything is working as it should, as they drive over the scale.

If law enforcement find any violations, they will interact with the truck driver and collect some information. Then, sometimes the truck is pulled to the side and an inspection is conducted. DMV officers are not only looking for weight, but they are also looking for vehicle violations; such as headlights, flat tires and so on. Inspectors also look at permits, making sure that they’re in compliance within the State. Officers also monitor watching the traffic as it’s coming up to the scale. As it’s coming up to the scale, if it starts backing up where it’s backing up out onto the roadway, they can shut the scale down so they are not causing any issues on the road itself.

When a truck actually drives on the scale it usually goes something like this. You enter the lane where the scale is located. Now you need to wait for the truck ahead of you to clear the scale. The truck ahead of you is okay to go as the sign indicates. Now the sign says, pull on to scale or perhaps you see a green light. Now you will slowly drive on to the scale and the system will automatically position the driver to stop at the correct location. The sign usually says, stop or displays a red dot. The truck stops and the weight of the truck is examined. If everything is good, the driver will be given the green light from the inspector and allowed to drive off.

truck scales for weigh station

Weigh stations help to make the roads safe for all users. Weigh stations help accomplish this by creating a level playing field holding all trucking companies accountable for the same vehicle and driver regulations. And these inspection results, in turn, help trucking companies improve safety and performance. States must remain committed to providing facilities and equipment that easily and efficiently identify violators of size and weight requirements. Preserving and maintaining a states infrastructure as well as providing a safe roadway and bridge system is important for every state.

And finally, it’s important that states commitment continues regarding data collection and technology as well as investment in important weigh scale system. As many state leaders have seen, weigh stations are an important part of the overall truck size and weight compliance program. State DOT programs need to remain committed to working with partner agencies and other stakeholders in developing effective truck size and weight compliance strategies.

Central Carolina Scale, located in Sanford, North Carolina has provided truck scale sales and service for these types of scales for decades. The company understands that high quality weighing equipment is paramount when you are weighing the quantity of trucks often seen at a weigh station.
