Product Details

-OPTIONAL- Rechargeable Battery PackIf ya choose to buy a model with the factory installed rechargeable battery pack, you won't have to worry about searching high and low for a wall outlet to plug your bench scale into. The Ranger scales with internal rechargeable batteries offer up to 30 hours of battery life on a single charge!

Four Models To Choose FromThe Ranger comes in four different models, the RD6RS, RD6RS/1, RD6RS/2 & RD6RS/3, each include all of the great features listed below plus a little something unique to each model. If ya want to see which scales have which features, check out the table above.

Class II NTEP ModeIf ya plan on using the Ranger bench scales commercially, you'll be glad to know there's an NTEP certified Legal for Trade weighing mode on each of these bench scales with Certificate of Conformance Number 07-026. This sure is gonna come in handy for weighing and packaging your foods to sell commercially. The NTEP resolutions are listed in the table above.

Dynamic WeighingThese high precision scales have a really cool dynamic weighing feature. This feature allows you to accurately weigh unstable items, or weigh stable items in an unstable environment.

Programmable Backlit DisplayThe Ohaus Rangers have a bright, backlit weight display so ya can see your weights even in dim lighting. If ya use this precision scale on battery power, you can even set the scale to not use the backlight feature. This is gonna save you a lot in battery power.

RS232 PortEach bench scale in this series has an RS232 port built right in. This is important if you're wanting to send your data to a printer for recording weight readings and other data.

Tare FeatureThe tare button on this digital bench scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight that is on the scale. You can then add more weight and the scale will only display the weights of the items you're adding...this sure is useful.

Liquid Level IndicatorThis very handy feature helps you quickly and easily get your scale nice and level. A level scale is important for getting the most accurate weight readings. All ya have to do is twist the feet on the bottom of the scale until the spirit bubble is centered within the level.

Stainless Steel PlatformThis compact digital scale has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Unlike gold or silver, stainless steel doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing. Since the platform is removable, this food scale is perfect for weighing food portions for packaging and food preparation.

1 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY!When ya buy the RD6RS, RD6RS/1, RD6RS/2 or RD6RS/3 you'll need to head on over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive your one year warranty.
