Digi-Star's new livestock scale system for group weighing and retrofitting mechanical group sales.

"Producers can easily retrofit their old, mechanical group scales to an accurate, easy-to-use digital scale system with these new mounts," says StockWeigh Product Manager, Larry Raupp. The kit includes all the necessary hardware and load cells to place under an existing group weighing platform.

It also comes with a StockWeigh 600 Digital Indicator. The SW600 is an efficient model indicator to use with 7,000 lb load cells or heavier. It can be used to export weight, date, and time data via a serial port to a printer or third party software programs.

Producers can also use this kit to complete their own home-made platform/group scale. Raupp said, "For a self-designed platform, the ideal structure is rigid to minimize deflection, and load cell mounts are placed near the perimeter of platform base."

Like all Digi-Star products, this kit of load cells, hardware mounts, and indicator are designed to withstand high weight capacities and outdoor agriculture environments.

Headquartered in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, with additional facilities and businesses in the Netherlands and United Kingdom, Digi-Star LLC is a global supplier of electronic sensing equipment, precision sensors, displays and software used by farmers and other equipment operators to precisely measure and analyze valuable data from critical farming processes.
