Product Description

For medical and industrial applications - from weighing of patients to counting

Do your patient lifts come already equipped with a scale? Weighing of patients is becoming increasingly important. Since 2003, European law requires legal-for-trade scales to be used in hospitals when dosing medication based on the patient's weight. The legal-for-trade version of the SLS sling scale meets these requirements and therefore is particularly suitable for mobile use in medical applications. Since the SLS sling scale has not been approved according to MPG 90/385/EWG, it may only be used in combination with a patient lift approved as a medical device.

However, the industry, too, benefits from SLS. A legal-for-trade SLS can be used for battery-supplied measurement of weight and force. The non legal-for-trade version enables a counting function to be activated in addition to the mere weighing of components for consignment and is therefore optimally suited for stock-taking by units.

The legal-for-trade single-range version of the SLS sling scale offers a maximum capacity of 200 kg at 100 g resolution. Furthermore, a legal-for-trade dual-range version with an additional weighing range up to 320 kg and 200 g resolution is available.

Head start on logistics through verification independent of the place of installation

Do you need legal-for-trade scales for use in different places of installation? Benefit from the logistics advantage resulting from a unique SLS feature! The sling scale can be adapted to the respective place of installation even after verification and sealing. This enables you to keep a flexible stock of legal-for-trade scales. Provided that adequate training and authorization are ensured, you can enter the local g-factor by yourself prior to delivery.
