We are the first company to develop and introduce SAW or surface acoustic wave sensor scales to the international market. This new technology has revolutionized the quantification of materials, which makes SAW an ideal process for the precise weighing of materials of all kinds. The affordability of our Ultra Precision Scales is comparable to strain gauge scales. We are proud to introduce you to SAW technology for the weighing of your products. The precision of SAW scales enables you to eliminate waste and measure exactly what you need when you need it.
Considering how the market is these days, it might seem rather brazen for Arlyn’s engineers to refer to this as the most accurate scale in its class. There are always people out there who will check facts and figures to see if a claim is verifiable.
That’s why you don’t see marketers saying things that they can’t back up with statistics like they used to. However, we’re confident that these scales are going to produce consistently accurate measurements when they’re utilized in a manner that’s consistent with their labeling.
As a result, we’ve been able to suggest them to a number of engineers and technicians in fields that require extremely exacting measurements. Since they rely on a radically different technology from what most people would be familiar with, it’s perhaps useful to have at least some kind of primer on how it works so you can make an informed decision regarding whether or not it’s best for your particular use case.
Types of SAW Scales
- SAW bench scales range from 10 to 200-pound capacities. For example, the Series 6200 scales give excellent readability of 0.02 lb with a capacity of 100 lb. The D-620C doubles that readability to 0.01 lb, with the same capacity. Our SAW-C Ultra Precision unit provides an incredible readability of 0.001 lb, also with 100 lb capacity.
Each industrial weighing application requires different levels of accuracy and resolution. But every application needs bench scales that are well designed, durable, cost effective and easy to use. A stainless steel load cell means you’ll have a scale that can handle rough use and still provide precise weight results.
- Platform SAW scales can take on additional weights from 200 to 1,000 pounds. Recent advances now allow the SAW scales to take on as much as 5,000 pounds. the Premium Ultra Precision Scales. These scales have 2x the resolution of the current generation of Ultra Precision Scales as well as 40x the resolution of regular strain gauge scales. The highly sensitive acoustic wave sensor delivers its piezoelectric punch not as hardware, but as technology.
This powerful scale comes in a very compact, fixed table-top form with built-in keypad and display that makes it easier to be used in clean rooms and other laboratory or industrial environments.
SAW Scale Specifications
Our Ultra-Precision scales are backed by a three-year warranty and are made to last. The scales are constructed of a die-cast aluminum shell with a stainless steel weighing pan and toggle switches.
The rock hard substrate with IDT metal is manufactured to endure any weight your industry might demand. The extremely rigid cell block is built to take large loads. In fact, SAW scales can take twice the load and twice the shock of any previous scale.
We fabricate our SAW transducers using semiconductor-grade crystalline substrates and deposit sensitive electronics thereon using the same photolithography process used to manufacture advanced semiconductor devices. This ultimately makes our SAW load cells inherently more accurate than strain gage ones because they produce a fully digital output stream that results in precise, high resolution measurements.
This combination of accuracy on so many different levels must lead to clear readings with many different connectivity options that will work with these scales.
For instance, you may need a special device that has an extremely high readout resolution because extremely slight differences are considered to be significant figures in your line of work. Should this sound familiar, then you might want to check out some of our special displays.
These scales offer easy-to-see large, back-lit LCD dual display with multiple weight units. There are parts counting and check weighing functions, as well as automatic zero trackings and stability control. You could also consider using any of the various computer interfaces that are available for our platform, which allow you to hook up peripherals to the equipment that you’re working with. Since these are based on standard technologies that you more than likely already have the gear to interface with, you shouldn’t have any issues.
Consider, for example, how some displays use USB jacks. This is a nearly universal standard at this point, which is included on so many different devices that it can be difficult to count. More than likely, you’ve even seen consumer-grade radios that have USB ports! As a result, it wouldn’t be difficult at all to find a computer in your department to plug into and get a stream of data from the most accurate scale you’ve ever worked with.
Computer enhancement options include RS-232 and Ethernet. There are rechargeable battery packs and set-point controllers for automatic filling, and other upgrades. SAW scales require no professional set up. You can easily start using the scale immediately, and no calibration is necessary.
