High Volume, Low Cost OEM Scale Designs and Weighing Systems

RL Scales weighing systems for automatic self-checkout, in-store and similar applications These scale designs, use Mini-Mount load cell mounts

Whether it’s for a commercial application such as self-checkout, commercial and industrial light capacity or conveyor scale, we have the knowledge and capability to design high-accuracy and high-speed weighing systems and also manufacture them in high volume.  Our RL Scales design team consults with the client to provide confidential conceptual scale designs for new, innovative methods of weighing to meet unique new demands or to meet critical cost goals.

RL Scales Self-Checkout scale components

Scale-Tron's 1410 analog transmitter handles up to 8 load cells and gives 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA, 0-5 V or 0-10 V output

Scale-Tron's RL Scales division is one of the leading manufacturers of bag scales for the self-checkout industry, supplying extreme accuracy, high speed scales to the world's leading producers of automatic checkout point of sale (POS) terminals. These 'sco scales' sit under the bag racks and carousels of many self-checkout counters worldwide. They measure the change in weight for each product scanned, checking the weight against the internal database. As a result, the honesty of the people checking their products is verified. Past and present scale designs include the following. You can use these scale components in your own scale designs with confidence, knowing that they are well-proven and reliable. Or you can ask us to create new weighing systems for you . . . Read more
  • Fixed size platforms on large single-point load cells.
  • RL Scales ‘Scale-Bars’ with large single-point load cells inside a set of two U-channel frames.  These can be placed under platforms of varying lengths.  Different models suit different platform widths.
  • Conveyor scales for use in self-checkout, with special conveyors using balanced drive drum motors.
  • RL Scales Carousel platforms, with ‘X-frame’ bottom structures, ‘brick’ style single-point load cells and ‘star’ type top frames with wheels supporting the rotary platforms.
  • RL Scales Planarcell (patented) planar load cells in cast metal bases with overload protection.  Four used to support platforms of practically any size.
  • RL Scales Mini-Mount (copyright protected) mini-single point load cells in cast metal bases with overload protection.  Four used to support platforms of practically any size.
  • RL Scales transmitter 1932 giving 20,000 division resolution, very fast response while rejecting shocks and vibration.  RS232 communication, supports up to four load cells and uses common terminal emulator software for setup and calibration.
  • RL Scales transmitter 1945 giving 20,000 division resolution, very low noise and jitter, very fast response while rejecting shocks and vibration. USB communication, supports up to four load cells and has a dedicated Windows application for setup and calibration.
  • Scale transmitter DJB500  giving 24 bit resolution and raw, unprocessed 4-channel output.  RS485 multi-drop communication, supports up to eight load cells.
  • Scale transmitter 1410, single channel analog processing with variable gain and offset, plus variable signal filtering.  Supports up to eight load cells.  Output is 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA, 0-5 V or 0-10 V.
  • Summing unit 1280 with DIN rail mount, NEMA-4 enclosure or bare board handles 2 or 4 load cells.
