Wireless Platform Scale Works Most Anywhere

Wall-Mounted EOS-F Wireless Platform Scale Module

Taking a digital platform scale to the job rather than the job to the scale is easier with the new Kern EOS-F wireless platform scale now available from Tovatech.  What sets it apart from conventional platform scales is a 3-channel integrated radio that communicates between the display/control module and up to 3 weighing platforms. Connectivity extends to 10 meters clear sight. The system operates on standard current or up to 70 hours with optional battery power.

This wireless platform scale works as a non-automatic balance. Operators manually and carefully place material to be weighed in the center of the weighing plate. Once a stable weighing value is reached (the scale is stabilized) the weighing value can be read.  Data should be manually recorded for record-keeping.

A grab handle and 2 rollers on the 36 x 22 x 2.5 inch weighing platform facilitate transport between locations.  The compact display/control module, which is also wall mountable, fits nicely into a veterinarian bag, backpack or shoulder bag.

Simple Platform Scale Control

The EOS-F wireless platform scale has a contact-free tare function activated when the operator waves a hand over the control panel sensor to tare up to three balances.  A conventional tare key is also used in programming the scale to various functions.  These include unit (pounds/kilograms), animal/dynamic weighing, and plus or minus deviations from a programmed target (nominal) weight. 

Channel selection for three weighing platforms is simple and direct.  Platforms have a switch module that can be set to accept either the default channel (1) or channels 1, 2, and 3 when multiple platforms are being monitored by the display/control module.  A button key on the control module allows the operator to contact the three platforms individually and obtain weight information.

Two Wireless Platform Scale Models

EOS-F wireless platform scales are available with a maximum weighing to 150 kg (readout 50 g) and 300 kg (readout 100 g).  Respective linearity is ±100 and 200 g.  While they can be moved to different locations they should be operated in a stable environment and when moved be allowed to stabilize in new locations.  A simple adjustment or calibrating procedure should be undertaken at permanent or new locations, and is described in the operations manual.

About Rachel Kohn

So how did an MIT Ph.D. end up selling refrigerators? When I figured out that a lot more scientists buy lab refrigerators than innovative leading-edge instruments. I hope that my many years of lab experience will help you find the right equipment for your work. Before co-founding Tovatech I worked in business development and project management at Smiths Detection, Photon-X, Cardinal Health, and Hoechst Celanese. And before that I spent 12 years as an R&D chemist at Hoechst Celanese and Aventis working on advanced drug delivery systems, polymer films and membranes, optical disks, and polysaccharides. Some day, eventually, I’ll make enough money to develop an innovative technology that will change the world. Read More
