Marsden Weighing Group (UK) - The DS-781SS Price Computing Scale is the latest addition to Marsden range of retail scales. The existing retail scales in the range - particularly those used as catering scales - are popular, but a number of customers were saying they needed something that had a higher IP rating, as well as being trade approved.
According to Marsden “the DS-781SS fits the brief perfectly”. It’s a trade approved stainless steel weighing scale that’s IP68-rated, meaning it can withstand wet or humid conditions - such as those you may find in a butcher shop or fishmongers. In fact, just like the IP68-rated B-100 in our recent Tried & Tested video, you could probably drop it in a bucket of water and it would still work… Although we wouldn’t recommend it!
The benefit of IP68 rated retail scales means there’s no worry about water finding its way into the workings of the scale when you’re weighing, say, freshly-caught fish, or a wedge of moist meat. Plus, you can wipe the scale down between uses, or at the end of the day, to keep it clean and hygienic.
The DS-781SS benefits from 99 PLUs - pre-inputted product information so that weights and prices can be immediately accessed - to speed up transactions, and the clear front and back displays show the weight quickly and clearly. It has a 1/3000, EC Approved display resolution.
Plus, to make it extra ideal for market stalls, small shops and those needing a weighing solution on the move, the DS-781SS can be battery powered and will last more than 600 hours with continuous operation… That’s nearly a month of using it 24/7 and never switching it off!
