What is a scale indicator?
A scale indicator, also known as a weight indicator or a digital weight indicator, provides the weight data from a scale to the operator. This information can be used to control machines that execute certain processes, such as dosing or filling, based on the reading from the scale.
What are scale indicators used for?
The R300 Series Indicators are ideal for use in mobile applications such as forklifts, platforms, inside truck cabs, crane scales and OEM applications.
Scale indicators are used in a variety of ways, depending on the application. Some basic weight indicators just provide weight values to the operator, while others have more complex uses.
Digital weight indicators or digital scale indicators are devices that are used to automatically control production processes. The scale indicator manual for your specific equipment will help further define its applications and uses.
