Take advantage of our Explosion Proof Scales that provide intrinsic safety at an affordable price. They feature a power-efficient Cortex-M microprocessor incorporated on a single circuit board. Their extremely low power consumption provides long battery life from three (3) rechargeable AA batteries. They also support external power supply through an intrinsically safe safety barrier. The scale features stainless steel load cells giving the scale superior overload protection for years of trouble-free use.

Other features include easy installation, easy to read graphics LCD display, full numeric keypad, easy to use menu-driven interface and large memory capacity. The indicator also offers Units Conversion, Net/Gross, Tare, Zero and many other secondary functions. Its housing is made from impact-resistant nylon. The optional communications interface allows communication to non-hazardous areas, giving RS-232, USB, Ethernet TCP/IP, analog 4-20mA, and setpoint outputs.
