DETECTO's new PS30 Digital Portion Scale features 30-pound capacity

Ideal for use in food service portioning



DETECTO’s new model PS30 compact countertop portion scale boasts a hefty 30-lb/15-kg capacity. The NSF-certified stainless steel PS30 is ideal for use in food service portioning and general purpose weighing. The digital scale weighs in pounds, ounces, both pounds and ounces, pounds and ounces with fractional 1/8th ounce, and kilograms. These selectable units may be preset to display only those desired by the user.

The scale’s IP65 washdown rating signifies that the durable PS30 is protected against dust and low-pressure water. This rating is perfectly suited for a commercial kitchen where heavy wash-down cleaning can be a daily necessity. The roomy stainless steel lift-off platform may be easily removed for frequent washing in food and chemical applications where a clean, sanitary surface is required.

The PS30 features five large 1-in (26-mm) high digits (plus fractional ounces) and a brilliant backlit blue LCD display that may be toggled on or off. Operation of the scale is simple with only four convenient buttons: Hold, Tare/Backlight, Units, and On/Off. Auto-zero circuitry ensures that zero is established on the power-up routine and is maintained throughout operation.

A low-battery indicator and automatic shut-off with adjustable timing conserve battery power and extend the life of the four AA batteries (not included). By adding the optional batteries, the PS30 has up to 110 hours of continuous use with the backlight off for all mobile weighing tasks such as farmers markets and roadside stands. An AC adapter is also provided with the scale for more fixed portioning applications.

The 30-lb capacity wasn’t achieved by trading counter space as the PS30 has a slim, compact design that leaves plenty of work space in even the tightest of countertops while still maintaining an ample 9.5-in W x 7.3-in D (24-cm W x 19-cm D) platter. Despite the higher capacity, the scale is still sensitive enough to weigh in 0.1-oz (2-g) increments, which accommodates the necessity of a perfectly balanced recipe or the precision of measuring corn, wheat or soybeans in an agricultural application. For more info: www.detecto.com/cs_product/ps30.
