    What is the PD-JIK-APP?

    The PD-JIK-APP is a Trade Approved pit mounted platform scale. Pit mounted scales are perfect for factories and warehouses that are lacking space, or require a permanently-positioned weighing scale for regular weighing tasks.

    Marsden pit mounted scales are sunk into the ground so that pallet trucks can roll over them easily. The PD-JIK-APP is Trade Approved, so suitable for weighing when price based on weight. It also has a range of options for printing weight, or sending it to a PC.

    What is a Trade Approved Scale?

    A Trade Approved scale is built and calibrated to provide accurate readings when items are weighed to determine their price. It is a legal requirement to use Trade Approved scales for such purposes. The scale must have a dataplate that includes an ‘M’ (for metrology) logo and a ‘III’ (to denote Class III) logo.

    Trade Approved weighing scales undergo a rigorous test programme conducted by a EU Notified Body. Read more about Trade Approved scales and the six applications for which they must be used in this blog post.

    Verification fees are included in the price of this scale.

    How can I send weight from the scale to a PC?

    This scale comes with RS-232 output, meaning it can be used with the optional Scale to PC USB Lead to send weight information to a PC.

    The Scale to PC USB Lead plugs into the USB port of your PC. Open an Excel spreadsheet, and when a weight reading registers on the scale, press Print on the indicator keypad and the data will appear in your spreadsheet.

    The weight reading, date and time can all be sent from the scale. A wireless version of the Scale to PC USB Lead is also available.

    How can I print from these scales?

    You can print sticky labels - that include weight, date and time information - directly from this scale. The GP-3120 Thermal Sticky Label Printer available from the Accessories list prints 56mm x 56mm labels as standard. However, we can supply label widths upto 76mm.

    Simply connect the printer to the scale, and when a weight registers on the display, press Print on the indicator keypad and Net Weight, Gross Weight, Tare, Weight, Date and Time can all be printed. If the scale is in Count mode, the count information can be printed instead.

    What are automated weighing processes?

    Order the optional relay board and you can speed up weighing processes. The relay board allows you to set up the scale so it controls other devices.

    For example, if you are weighing bags of produce as it is fed from a hopper, the scale can be connected to the hopper to switch off the feed once a target weight has been hit.

    The indicator’s hi/lo alarm helps with automated weighing, alerting the user when a weight is out of target, on target or over weight. A separate hi/lo light tower can also be purchased as an accessory.
