Ohaus Corporation, a leading manufacturer of weighing equipment for industrial, laboratory and other applications is introducing the CKW Checkweigher Series, a new easy-to-use line of checkweighing scales constructed with advanced open-architecture for maximum food safety conformance.

Supporting HACCP Compliance, the CKW Checkweigher Series is both NSF certified and USDA-AMS accepted. The CKW Checkweigher Series, brings together the speed and accuracy for which the Ohaus brand is known, along with a new design for complete cleaning and strength to withstand the harsh and wet environments of industrial and food processing businesses. The rigid stainless steel scale features a hollow column and is constructed with no visible threads or sharp corners, minimizing food traps and reducing cleaning times. The CKW Checkweigher also features an extended skirt that curtails water or other material from getting into the frame.

The CKW Series easy-to-clean construction conforms with many rigid food safety regulations where General Purpose to Washdown weighing applications are involved. Combined with multiple configurable software, the scales eliminate numerous complications associated with checkweighing while enabling the user to improve productivity, save time and reduce costs.

Designed for fast set-up with a dedicated Target key, the CKW Checkweigher Series boasts multiple configurations for users to checkweigh for their specific operational needs. With a straightforward and easy-to-navigate interface and sophisticated software, the scales are designed to give users flexibility other checkweighers can’t match. It supports multiple weighting units and allows setpoint target configurability by range, weight and percent variance.

The CKW Checkweigher offers a high-contrast adjustable LED display that provides checkweighing indications by 3 color 24 segment bar graph, beeper and weight display alert. The selectable display control can be configured to blank out or flash with selected checkweigh conditions. Checkweighing methods include Positive, Negative, Zero or Net modes.

The new scales also include built-in external remote input to Tare, Zero or Print, and built-in RS232. For further system connectivity and use in industrial process applications, optional RS422/485 and AC/DC relay outputs are available.
