Product Models

Digital Load Cells can provide an all-in-one, single point solution to the problems defined above. Since they are designed with built-in electronics for signal processing, they are ideal for applications that require compact solutions without the extra bulk of a digital display or an external amplifier board.

Arlyn Scales’ Digital Load Cells provide a fully processed output. This means there is no need for additional processing, filtering or averaging to be done when they are integrated to your system. All of this is done within the electronics housed inside the digital load cell.

Arlyn Scale Digital Load Cells

Digital Load Cells (DLC) from Arlyn Scales not only provide the tried and tested reliability and ruggedness that is known for the brand, but they also come with ease of use.


Our DLCs can come with many different types of connectivity such as RS-232, USB as well as RS-422 and RS-485 for multi-load cell applications. Our Digital Load Cells can also accommodate Ethernet TCP/IP connectivity which allows our customers to connect to their systems.


Our simplified protocols allow our users to directly test the DLCs out of the box using typed commands on any serial terminal (such as PuTTY, RealTerm, TeraTerm, etc.) to retrieve human readable, ASCII formatted weight values.The Digital Load Cells have a dual layer protocol;

  • Simple Protocol
    Complex Protocol

The Simple Protocol allows users to use our unique, simplified 2-character “star command” system to retrieve weights from the DLC. Other functions available are ZERO, TARE, NET/GROSS and UNIT commands.

The Complex Protocol allows for even greater control over the DLC. This protocol allows our users not only to retrieve weights but to perform complicated functions such as load cell calibration, configure filter settings, tracking, and other parameters. The Complex Protocol was also designed in such a way that it can be performed on any serial terminal without the need for special equipment.

Factory Direct Pricing

In addition to the unique features presented above, our customers will be able to utilize these features at a much more reasonable price point as compared to our competitors. These Digital Load cells are Made In USA and are supplied Factory Direct, a fact which most of our competitors cannot proclaim.
