What is the DS-781?
The Digi DS-781 is a price computing retail scale which has a waterproof keyboard and splashproof housing. The scale features customer and operator displays making it ideal for market traders or small shops. It features Tare and Zero functions, 99 PLUs and 16 pre set keys for faster transactions.
This is a Trade Approved scale, which means it has been calibrated to the accuracy required when goods are bought or sold based on weight.
What is a Trade Approved scale?
Trade Approved scales, which are also known as Class III Approved scales, must be used by law when goods are priced based on their weight. Penalties can be issued by trading standards on those who do not use Trade Approved scales for this purpose.
Since they are used for pricing goods during a transaction, retail scales must always be Trade Approved.
These scales can also be referred to as Trade Stamped, Verified and EC Approved. You can see whether your scales are Trade Approved by an ‘M’ and ‘III’ logo on the scale’s dataplate.
Why should I choose the DS-781?
The DS-781 is suitable for weighing items up to 15kg.
This retail scale can either be operated by either mains power, via the AC adaptor included in the price, or from battery power using four C-sized batteries. This makes the DS-781 a highly portable weighing scale that can be used anywhere regardless of where the nearest mains point is.
The scale features a waterproof keyboard and stainless steel pan. It has Zero and Tare functions, 99 PLUs and 16 preset keys. The Tare function is used to remove any unwanted weight from the final reading, for example, a retailer could remove the weight of a container so that only the contents of said container are weighed. The price can be displayed per kg or per 100g. An optional vegetable scoop is available.
