ARE TRADE APPROVED OPTIONS AVAILABLE?
Will you be using the Platform Scale to package or sell items by weight in New Zealand? If so, then the law requires that you use a scale that’s been approved for trade. That’s why our range features a number of Trade Approved options, including the MP4252 and MF Series Floor Pallet Scale.
WHAT IS THE BATTERY LIFE LIKE?
When you’re reliant on a scale to stand up to the rigours of daily use, it’ll need a battery to match. Our range of Platform Scales include options that operate on both mains power and rechargeable batteries. The CAS PB Portable Platform Scale, for example, boasts 300 hours of continuous use via battery power, which makes it a great option for weighing on the go.
WHAT ABOUT PORTABILITY?
Not all weighing tasks take place within the confines of the factory floor. In fact, many businesses require a more agile solution that offers the portability of a Bench Scale while still being able to stand up to the rough and tumble of heavier-duty tasks. In cases such as these, your best bet is the Trade Approved CAS PB Portable Platform Scale. Robust, lightweight, and with an added carry handle, this scale can be transported with ease while the 300hrs of continuous operation via rechargeable battery makes it ideal for remote operation in home delivery companies, hospitals, and fitness centers.
WHAT ARE THE MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM WEIGHING CAPACITIES?
From heavy to heaviest, our Platform Scales are up to the task. The MP4252 Scale, for example, features models capable of 60, 150, and 300kgs respectively, through to a more significant 1,500 to 5,000kgs found in the MF Series of Floor Pallet Scales.
HOW LARGE ARE THE TRAYS?
Chances are if you’re considering a Platform Scale you’re weighing large objects, but how large is large, exactly? You’ll find Platform Scales here that are perfect for most oversized weighing tasks, with tray sizes ranging from 420 x 520mm and 600 x 800mm in our MP4252 scale, through to the larger 1200mm x 1200mm and 1500mm x 1500mm of the MF Series Floor Pallet Scale.
