Arlyn Ultra Precision Scale: The Most Accurate Scale In Its Class
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. Our Ultra Precision scales are comparable to strain gauge scales in affordability while offering exceptional accuracy. These are truly the most accurate scales in their class.
Types of SAW Scales
SAW bench scales range from 10 to 200-pound capacities. For example, the Series 6200 strain gauge 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 1,000 pounds. 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 a built-in keypad and display that makes it easier to be used in cleanrooms and other laboratory or industrial environments.
Intrinsically Safe Ultra Precision Scales are ideal for any industrial environment classified as hazardous due to explosive fumes, liquids, or high concentrations of dust. These scales can be configured in multiple ways to meet a range of unique applications, including AC powered systems and Safe Area display configurations. These scales are intrinsically safe for use in Class I, II and III; Division 1; and Groups A, B, C, D, E, F and G.
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.
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 gauge units because they produce a fully digital output stream that results in precise, high-resolution measurements.
This combination of accuracy and features lead to precise readings along 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 have significant importance in your line of work. Should this sound familiar, then you might want to check out some of our special displays.
These scales offer an 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 tracking and stability control. You could also consider using any of the various computer interfaces that are available for our scales, 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 connectivity. 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.
How Does SAW Technology Work?
SAW technology is a breakthrough in precision and accuracy. Before our experienced engineers crafted SAW, many scales used either strain gauge or force restoration technology. Strain gauge measures the change in resistance of a spring element load sensor. While this type of technology offers great value cost-wise, it often lacks accuracy. Force restoration measures weight based on the amount of electric current needed to support the object. This type of technology is great for precision, but it tends to be more expensive.
SAW technology offers the best of both worlds. Our SAW scales have two transducers: one that works as a transmitter and the other as a receiver. The transmitter sends a bulk wave to the receiver when an object is placed on the scale’s surface. The receiver amplifies this signal, and the signal is applied to the transmitter. The spring element within the scale bends as the process is repeated. Weight is determined based on how long it takes the wave to travel between the transducers. This technology not only provides great accuracy, but it also is extremely affordable.
Why You Should Use Ultra Precision Scales
If you need more accuracy than a standard gauge scale can offer, then you need an Ultra Precision Scale from Arlyn Scales. These scales provide 10 times the accuracy of standard scales and feature a rugged design perfect for rough industrial use. They can offer sensitivity ratings as low as .0001, and their accuracy falls between .01% and .005%. While you should be careful of overloading, accidents happen. That’s why Ultra Precision Scales can accept up to 2.5 times the rated load without damage.
Who Can Benefit From Using These Scales?
We believe anyone can benefit from a more accurate scale, but this especially applies to those working with pharmaceuticals, chemicals, industrial paints and adhesives, and electronics. When you work in these industries, the slightest inaccuracy can have severe consequences. With our Ultra Precision Scales, you get the accurate measurements you need as well as a durable design that can stand up to spills and heavy loads. Don’t forget about the Intrinsically Safe Ultra Precision Scale that is appropriate for hazardous environments.
Benefits of Ultra Precision Scales
The main benefits of our Ultra Precision Scales are accuracy, cost, and durability. These scales are primarily 10 times more accurate than strain gauge scales, which are similar in cost. Most other precision scales aren’t built strong enough for industrial use, but our scales are. They can handle two times the capacity and shock of many other scales. We also understand industries working with large loads still need accurate measurements. That’s why we offer the Large Ultra Precision Scale that can withstand up to a 1000 lb capacity. You won’t to find scales as versatile, stable, accurate, and affordable as these anywhere else.
Upgrade to the Best Scale at the Best Price from Arlyn Scales
You get all this for less than the price of a high-end strain gauge scale for a fraction of the cost of force restoration scales. Our Ultra Precision Scales can take you into the world of high technology and high precision today. It’s about time to make an investment on a scale that will deliver tomorrow’s accuracy today and into the future.
