Weigh your options to see if a touch-screen balance meets your needs.
If you only need basic weighing, you may not want to invest in a balance with features you won’t use. If you need precision, accuracy, saved data for audits, or want a balance you can customize with features that can make your weighing much easier with just a touch, then consider a touch-screen balance. Some of the features can include, but are not limited to, a capacitive touchscreen for easy use; customizable menu screen to match your everyday needs; touchless feature to minimize contamination; statistics working mode to automatically calculate and quickly analyze data from a series of measurements; a built-in memory to automatically record measurements, preview, copy and archive data; easy-to-adjust filter settings depending on your working environment and more. These are just some of the features you can find on today’s touch-screen balances. But the one thing to remember, you can have a touch-screen balance within your budget.
What is a capacitive touch-screen balance?
Capacitive touchscreens are easy to press, and some can even work when you wear gloves. You don’t need to press down hard on the buttons for the balance to work. A light touch will do the trick. And a color capacitive touch-screen display provides clear visibility of weighing results. This type of touchscreen stands up to the wear and tear of daily use, and if maintained per the operating manual, it will last for many years without fading.
