A digital weighing scale or balance from METTLER TOLEDO is a sophisticated machine that measures weight or mass with high precision. We offer a diverse selection of electronic balances and scales for use in laboratories, industrial environments, transportation and logistics, and retail settings. Designed specifically to provide highly precise readings, our scales weigh with exceptional sensitivity.
Using a digital weighing scale or balance is very easy. Turn the scale on, make sure that it is calibrated correctly, and place the sample on the scale. The digital display will then show its weight. Your sample is weighed by measuring the force applied to the load cell. The result will be converted to mass and presented in a variety of mass units.
To calibrate a digital scale or balance, you first need to place it on a level surface and choose a test weight. Then, turn on the scale and enter calibration mode. Place the test weight on the scale and wait for the machine to calculate the total weight. If the weight isn't correct, press the calibration button and wait for it to recalibrate. You should see zero on the display after removing the weight.
You must be sure that your results are accurate and within specification while using a digital scale or balance in any process. METTLER TOLEDO's calibration services validate and document your weighing scale's performance, ensuring that your operations satisfy compliance or quality standards. Our calibrations are also in accordance with ISO9001, ISO17025, and other standards.
It is very simple to read a digital scale. Weight is measured on digital scales in pounds (lbs), ounces (oz), kilograms (kg), or grams (g). After placing an object on the scale, check the number that appears—there will be a unit of measurement next to that number, which is the weight of that particular object. For example, if it weighs five kilograms, it would normally be displayed as 5kg.
A digital scale is a highly accurate weighing device. Compared to analog scales, digital scales and balances are more robust and stable, and they resist electromagnetic interference better than analog scales. This is because they have advanced algorithms built into the scale. These algorithms work to filter out “noise” such as vibrations or environmental changes that can interfere with the weight signal.
Depending on what went wrong, there are numerous ways to fix your digital scale or balance. There may be a simple fix, like calibrating it correctly or cleaning it more thoroughly, or it may be more complex, requiring a professional's assistance.
With POWERCELL® digital scales, you are equipped with condition monitoring capability, which supports with real-time troubleshooting and operator guidance when errors occur.
If the problem is more complex, it might mean that there is an internal problem with your digital scale and you should ask a professional to help. METTLER TOLEDO offers a fast and reliable repair service performed by certified service technicians. They have the right tools and skills to diagnose the root cause and fix your digital scale or balance.
