New Products

January 2014 - A new digital load cell transmitter is being finalized and tested.  This transmitter uses USB communication in place of the fast disappearing RS232.  It has the same capability for Auto-Cal operation as the previous 1930/1932 series but is smaller in size and both lower in noise and faster in response.  Stability and accuracy are unchanged.

November 2013 - A new load cell module is available in sample quantities.  This module is equal in accuracy to our Planarcell series but has a smaller footprint and is lower in cost.

Contact us for details on these new products.


The European Directive RoHS (Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment), is enforced throughout the European Community after July 1st , 2006. The directive aims to protect human health and the environment by restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in new equipment. To comply with the RoHS directive, the restricted use of Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr 6+), Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) must be ensured.

Most of the products made by RL Scales come under Category 9, ”Monitoring and control instruments“ and are thus exempt from the RoHS directive. Some OEM products used in point of sale equipment must meet this directive, however, and we have obtained compliance in these products as a result.

Product identification

Part number for RoHS compliant parts have changed in some cases.  In others, the RoHS compliance is identified by the product serial number.  The product status is designated by the following pictures in this web site and that of Scaime:

Indicates that the RoHS compliance is planned for this product, but the process is not complete.

Indicates that we are able to produce RoHS compliant parts, but non-compliant parts remain in stock. You can request a declaration certificate indicating the first serial number of compliant parts.

Indicate that all produced parts and all in-stock parts are RoHS compliant. You can request a declaration certificate indicating the first serial number of compliant parts.
