For many years the standard weight indicator was a simple digital display that showed the weight of an item placed on the scale platform and possibly had a few buttons that allowed users to control the scale. While this type of display served its purpose well for many years, thanks to advances in technology, today’s industrial scales now offer much more advanced display indicators that offer a whole host of new features that would be impossible to utilize with a basic display indicator.
At Arlyn Scales, we’ve long been investigating how we could completely revolutionize how the standard display indicator works, and, in doing so, recently released a state of the art display indicator that’s nothing like anything else currently on the market. This new display indicator is called the Arlyn UpScale Touchscreen Indicator.
In this article, we’ll start by introducing our company to you and then dig a bit deeper into why you may be interested in our programmable weight indicator.
Why Choose Arlyn Scales for Your Industrial Scale Needs?
When you’re looking for a new industrial scale, you have quite a few options when it comes to scale manufacturers. Because of this it can be difficult to know which company to turn to for your scale needs.
At Arlyn Scales it’s our intent to make the entire buying process for an industrial scale as painless as possible. We’ve been headquartered in Long Island, New York where we’ve been in business for well over 30 years. This commitment to our local community and to our employees gives us a number of advantages, in our opinion, when compared to some of our competitors.
US Based Manufacturing
When you’re purchasing a scale from Arlyn Scales, you’re buying a scale that was actually manufactured in our US-based factory in Long Island, New York. This means that our design and manufacturing teams work hand in hand to ensure each scale that we produce meets our incredibly high standards.
Factory Direct Pricing
Because all our scales are manufactured here in the US, we’re also able to offer factory direct pricing for all our industrial scales. This means that you can order one of our scales directly from our website or over the phone. We do not utilize any distributors, which allows us to keep our prices competitive, and invest some of these savings into new innovations for our scales.
Expert Customer Service
When you have a company that manufacturers products overseas, it can sometimes be difficult to get in touch with someone that’s intimately familiar with the product you have should you run into any problems after purchase. At Arlyn Scales, everyone that you would talk to over the phone or via email is extremely involved in the entire scale design and manufacturing process meaning that they’ll either have the answer to any question you may have, or they can quickly get the answer from another colleague located in one of the neighboring areas in our facility. This level of expertise is hard to come by, especially in an industry where the majority of products are manufactured overseas.
What’s So Great About the Arlyn UpScale Touchscreen Indicator?
Our Arlyn UpScale Touchscreen Indicator is truly in a league of its own when it comes to display indicators for weighing instruments. As opposed to a simple digital display, this device is powered by an Android touchscreen tablet which puts the full power of our industrial scales in your hands. Below are some of the impressive specs of this touchscreen device:
- Color touchscreen display
- 7-inch HD IPS capacitive touchscreen
- 8 GB of on-board storage
- Quad core processor
- 1 GB of RAM allowing the device to handle a variety of tasks at once
- Easy to use graphical interface
- Water resistant
In addition to these impressive specs, there are a number of other scale features that will have you wishing you invested in a display indicator of this caliber many years ago.
Sophisticated Setpoint Functionality
While our basic display indicator supports our setpoint controller, the Arlyn UpScale Touchscreen Indicator offers additional setpoint functionality. If you’re not familiar with our setpoint controller, it allows users to control pieces of equipment based on output readings. This can be beneficial to help automate filling, dispensing and mixing of complex chemical formulations. With the Arlyn UpScale Digital Indicator, users can not only control equipment based on saved weight readings, but an email or text can be sent to designated recipients when a certain weight value is reached.
Improved Datalogging Capabilities
In addition to our basic data logging capabilities which allow data to be stored to a USB flash drive, with this upgraded touchscreen device, users can email the data log file with the simple click of a button, or have an email generated at a specific date and time.
Array of Communication Options
The Arlyn UpScale Display Indicator also offers support for a variety of communication protocols such as USB, WiFi, Ethernet, RS-232, and others. This way you can easily transmit weight data across your corporate network with ease.
The basic digital display indicator can sometimes be difficult to read. With the Arlyn UpScale, the screen resolution is an impressive 1024 x 600, which should make measurements easily readable even from short distances. This is important especially if you’re worried that individuals may have difficulty reading the correct weight values, which can lead to transcription errors.
