Balance Information

The new CPWplus Series has several models and now comes standard with Bi-directional RS-232 interface enabling you to connect to a computer or printer.  These compact platform scales are the low cost solution to many industrial applications.  The scale is available in 6 different capacities 13/33/75/165/330/440 lb and has a remote indicator with a large LCD display which is easy to read from a distance.  The water-resistant keyboard has 4 function keys is very easy to use.  With the standard AC adapter included and the facility for drycell batteries, the CPWplus compact scale offers all the flexibility needed for a truly portable scale.

  • Stainless steel housing and weighing platform with remote indicator
  • Large LCD display
  • Simple 4 button operation
  • Portable with battery power
  • AC adapter included
  • Switchable between lb, kg, lb:oz or oz
  • Low cost for many applications
  • Bi-directional RS-232 interface
  • Tare function
  • Mains power adapter and wall mounting kit included as standard

The CPW features an Auto-Off power savings feature to save power when the scale is not in use.  You can select 4 different times (120 secs, 180 secs, 240 secs, 300 secs) or you can disable the auto-off altogether so the scale stays ON all the time until you press the On/Off button to turn off the scale.

scaleAdditional advanced features of the CPWplus Series include the freedom to turn OFF or ON specific weigh modes.  The CPW Series comes from the factory with the 4 weigh modes enabled - pounds, kilogram, pound:ounces & ounces.  Any scale that offers multiple weigh modes always creates the possibility that the user could be weighing in the wrong mode.  This is difficult not to recognize since the LCD display clearly shows on the LCD either lb, kg, lb:oz or oz, but there is always a chance you have staffing that is not the most cognizant.  The CPWplus gives you the flexibility to disable specific weigh modes so only one weigh mode can be used by the operator.

The CPW is the perfect field scale for federal, state, and local department of transportation testing laboratories, commercial testing laboratories, material producers and contractors.  The CPWplus 30, CPWplus 60 and CPWplus 100 meets ASTM C 29, C 138 and AASHTO T19, T121 concrete specifications with the most commonly used 0.25 cu. ft. (7.08 L) unit weight containers.  When purchased with the optional hard carry case that features a foam fitted interior, lock and strap. The CPWplus is the best buy for your money today for field testing.

CPW platform scale inner workings

The CPW is designed with 4 loadcells providing spectacular repeatable results.  This design lessens readings that fluctuate when the weight of the parcel does not have the load evenly distributed. We took apart a CPW Scale to show you the quality.  The independent loadcell in each of the 4 corners provides you with accurate readings no matter where you place the weight on the scale's platform
Competitve brand shipping scale taken apart they uses a lever system
[Click for Hires Image]
Numerous platform shipping scales, many of which are sold in the office supplies stores, use only one loadcell in the center of the platform.  This design uses 4 levers that transfer the force applied to the platform to a tiny single loadcell in the center.  This design depends upon multiple fulcrum points.  Having additional moving parts increases the chances of failure.  The arms can easily bend if the load applied to the platform isn't properly centered on the scales.  The Adam CPW eliminates all these possible failures by implementing 4 individual loadcells which is more expensive way to build a scale.
