What is the B-100?
The B-100 is Marsden’s best-selling waterproof weighing scale. The IP68 certification means this bench scale can withstand use in some of the most punishing locations. This version is powered by non-rechargeable batteries meaning there is no need to recharge the scale when battery power is low or find a mains socket for charging - simply replace the 6x AA batteries.
What does the IP rating mean?
The B-100 is IP68 rated. The scale’s IP rating refers to the scale’s level of protection. The first digit (e.g. ‘6’) shows the scale’s protection to dust. The second digit (in this case ‘8’) denotes the level of protection against water and other liquids.
IP65 rated scales are protected against moisture when wiped down with a damp cloth. Scales which are IP67 are splashproof, protected against moisture and can be washed down. IP68 scales are waterproof and can survive in harsh environments. More information can be found here.
Who uses the non-rechargeable B-100?
We launched the non-rechargeable B-100 following feedback from customers. Some users - like those who are using the B-100 out in a field for many hours (for example, fruit picking) - found returning the B-100 back to their base to be recharged was inconvenient.
They needed an accurate, waterproof scale that could be used for many hours at a time. Then, when the battery power did run out, instead of looking for a socket to recharge the scale, they could simply replace the batteries and continue to use the scale.
Fully charged, 6x AA batteries provide at least 200 hours of continuous use.
Why should I choose the non-rechargeable B-100?
Choose this version of the B-100 if you need a waterproof, high accuracy bench scale that can be used anywhere, without needing to be recharged when its battery runs flat.
Just like our standard rechargeable battery-powered B-100, this version also has a bright red LED display front and rear. There are also full range Tare and Counting features, and a hi/lo alarm. Capacity options are 3kg, 7.5kg, 15kg and 30kg, giving you accuracies of 0.2g, 0.5g, 1g, 2g and 5g respectively - select from the drop-down menu above.
Please note: the mains adaptor from the standard B-100 cannot be used with the non-rechargeable B-100.
You can see the B-100 in the video above, where this IP68 scale proves its waterproof credentials by being submerged in a bucket of water.
