The Shor-Line K9-W8 scale with post mounted display and operating panel features both ruggedness in construct and incredible accuracy in measuring patient's weights. These highly accurate measurements are made possible by the ultra-low load cells located under each corner of the platform, in combination with the self-leveling platform mounts. Weight can be displayed in either pounds or kilograms, and is indicated with 1" high numerals on the back-lit LCD display. Calibrating the unit is done on-screen, and is quick and easy, as is cleaning the platform, post, and display and control unit. Tare weight can be accounted for, and previous weight measurements can be recalled as needed. This animal scale can operate on 4 AA batteries or with an AC adapter. An wall mount is provided for the display as an optional alternative to post mounting.
