A Digital Weight Indicator with Stainless Steel Enclosure is a good choice for almost all applications. At Central Carolina Scale, we have many different ones to choose from. The Rice Lake Legend Series blends quality and design with new ideas for tomorrow. As the flagship of Rice Lake’s Legend Series, the 480 digital weight indicator has been perfected to provide the very best in performance and value. This indicator replaced the IQ355 which had been around for many years. With its stainless steel enclosure and advanced gasket system, the industrial-strength 480 is built for dirty, wet environments and demanding workplaces, inside or out. Advanced circuitry also withstands electrical noise, power disturbances and transient spikes that are common to industrial applications.
Rice Lake’s 480 is the industry’s first choice for readability. With its large, ultra-bright LED display, 0.8 inch digits and sharp contrast, the 480 provides superior display visibility. Its six-button tactile keypad allows for quick navigation and programming. Connect the 480 to a printer, PC or remote display and make use of configurable print formats, time and date function, and local/remote capability. Whether it's used in heavy capacity or batching operations, the 480 powers as many as ten 350 ohm load cells in parallel. Engineered with Rice Lake’s advanced digital filtering, the 480 Legend Series promises top speed without sacrificing weight stability. We also highly recommend indicators from Avery Weigh-Tronix, GSE, Doran Scales, Pennsylvania Scale Company and Cardinal Scale Manufacturing.
If you're existing scale is located in an industrial environment, go ahead and spend a little extra money and buy a high quality digital weight indicator that has a stainless steel enclosure. These are typically much more durable than our economical plastic enclosure readouts. If you're looking to buy an entire scale system, we also recommend you purchase the system with a stainless steel readout if you can afford it.
We also recommend buying a reputable, brand name indicator for several reasons. First, the reputable brand is more than likely built using quality standards and has an IP rated enclosure, as opposed to certain manufacturers who like to boast of having a stainless steel readout but when you press them to actually provide a number for their enclosure, they can't. Please contact us (919) 776-7737 and we can work with you and review and compare certain choices you have and let you know which models are the best for the money.
Secondly, we also like the S.S. indicators for their durability and performance as well. No indicator can take everything but if you were to accidentally drop an indicator, you would have a much better chance of limited damage with the higher quality enclosure.
