Capacity and Readability

Do you know what you need to weigh? The first and most important step in selecting the right scale is to determine how much capacity (and platform size) you will need. Be sure to select a scale with enough capacity to weigh your items plus a little bit of padding for rough treatment. The second part will be to determine how small of a change in weight you want to be able to display, also known as the scale's readability. The readability on scales typically gets better as you go down in capacity, so choose a scale that has enough capacity for your application, but not too much.

Scales are available with a wide range of features to help with your weighing tasks. Impact resistance is useful in a pocket scale as users are often mobile or in the outdoors and the scale could easily be dropped. Other features such as Overload protection should be built-in to protect the scale from misuse. If you intend to use your scale to count small parts, make sure the scale has a Parts Counting feature. Pocket scales often have an Auto-Off feature to save battery life by turning the scale off after a period of inactivity. If this is not desired, be sure to select a scale with a Programmable or Selectable Auto-Off. A clear LCD display with good back-lighting means that the scales can be used in multiple environments, such as low lighting or outdoors.
