A CAS model FW500 waterproof scale was supplied to a public hospital north of Brisbane to weigh blood in an operating theatre during surgeries. The scale needed to be rated to an environmental sealing of IP69K to ensure it could not be contaminated by the blood and could also be completely washed down after each surgery.
The CAS FW 500 is a very compact bench scale and is available in maximum capacities ranging from 6kg to 30kg. An LED and LCD version are both available. All units come with an internal rechargeable battery allowing the scales to be used anywhere, and also have an auto shut-off feature to conserve battery power when not in use.
The stainless steel top tray also makes the scale useful for weighing in all types of harsh conditions, such as caustic or acidic work places, food processing plants and biologically hazardous areas.
