New Digital Portion Scale Is NSF-Certified

August 14, 2014

Detecto’s new model PS30 compact countertop portion scale boasts a hefty 30-lb capacity. The NSF-certified stainless steel PS30 is versatile enough for use in food service portioning, industrial, shipping, plant processing, and general purpose weighing. The digital scale weighs in lb, oz, both lb and oz, lb and oz with fractional 1/8th oz, and kg. These selectable units may be preset to display only those desired by the user.

The scale’s IP65 washdown rating signifies that the durable PS30 is protected against dust and low-pressure water. The roomy stainless steel lift-off platform may be easily removed for frequent washing in food and chemical applications where a clean, sanitary surface is required.

The PS30 features five large 1-in.-high digits (plus fractional ounces) and a brilliant backlit blue LCD display that may be toggled on or off. Operation of the scale is simple with only four convenient buttons: Hold, Tare/Backlight, Units, and On/Off. Auto-zero circuitry ensures that zero is established on the power-up routine and is maintained throughout operation.

A low-battery indicator and automatic shut-off with adjustable timing conserve battery power and extend the life of the four AA batteries (not included). By adding the optional batteries, the PS30 has up to 110 hours of continuous use with the backlight off for all mobile weighing tasks such as farmers markets and roadside stands. An AC adapter is also provided with the scale for more fixed portioning applications.
