Scale Options

60 Shelf Family

Our shelves are formed using 14 gauge, powder coated, sheet metal and are 60”L x 12”d x 3”h.

They are the easiest and quickest of the three product family options to install.

Each shelf contains an internal DB Controller (PCB) pre-wired to each sensor and LED cluster.

A 60" shelf may be configured with as many as 12 sensors.

Select 3kg, 6kg or 12kg capacity sensors for each shelf or bin location.
     
Bridging is a unique and powerful software feature. Bin Locations may be easily bridge or unbridge as inventory needs change.

Two 4" locations become one 9" location. Three 4" locations become one 13.5" location. Two 9" locations become one 18" location and so on.

Bridging also allows you to disable select LED modules to clearly delineate bridged bin locations.

When bridged, the sum of the sensor capacities equals the scale capacity. If two 4" bin locations each with a 6kg sensors are bridged, the resulting scale is 9" and has a capacity of 12kg.

The DB1000-003 is our most flexible shelf. It includes 12 sensors and LED modules.

The three images below are of the same shelf, demonstrating the flexibility of the DB1000-003.

Create dynamic scale sizes and load capacities by bridging scales & selecting appropriate scale tops.

 

DB1000-020 – 6 Bin Locations

Includes an internal PCB pre-wired to each of the six sensors and LED clusters and six 9"w Scale Tops

 

DB1000-030 - 4 Bin Locations

Includes an internal PCB pre-wired to each of the four sensors and LED clusters and four 13.5"w Scale Tops

The sensor is mounted directly in the center of the scale top.

 

DB1000-031 - 4 Bin Locations

Although the DB1000-031 looks exactly the same as the DB1000-030, in includes eight sensors (one beneath the extreme left side of the scale top and one beneath the right). This doubles the weight capacity of each scale and provides better side-to-side balance.

 

Designing and building rack(s) using 60" shelves is easy.

  • Select the shelf model(s)
  • Select sensor capacities
  • Select posts and brackets
  • Secure the shelf to the bracket
  • Secure the bracket to the posts
  • Daisy-chain power and data from shelf to shelf

There are 4 bracket options available for use with 60” shelves.

The brackets were designed  to be mounted to commercially available posts.

12”w Strut Bracket

12”w Angle Iron Bracket
   

24”w Angle Iron Bracket

12” w Closure Bracket & rubber feet
 


The racks below were built using six, 60 shelves. The rack on the left has 72 bin locations and is 62w x 12d x 60h. The rack on the right is a double rack that creates an island and has 144 bin locations. The 12w Strut Brackets are mounted to heavy-duty strut posts using strut nuts or extruded aluminum posts using t-slot nuts. The shelf glides onto the bracket and is secured using the hardware provided. The four-sided extruded aluminum post makes it easy to mount a PC, monitor, scanner, etc.


12” Strut Bracket


There are five 60 shelves on the rack below. The rack has 36 bin locations and is 62w x 12d x 60h. The 12w angle iron brackets are mounted to inexpensive, commercially available eyeletted posts. The shelf glides on the bracket and is secured using the hardware provided.


12" Angle Iron Bracket




There are five 60 shelves on the cart rack below. It has 36 bin locations and is 62w x 12d x 60h. The 24w Angle Iron Brackets are mounted to inexpensive, commercially available eyeletted posts. The shelf is secured to the bottom of the bracket using the hardware provided. The shelves may be staggered for better weight distribution and to allow for easier access to the bins. A mobile cart option exists that will allow the rack to be mounted to 8 swiveling, locking wheels. The cart will move easily and will safely support 1,200 lbs.





24” Angle Iron Bracket





The rack below illustrates 60 shelves atop a 72w commercially available rack. The 12w closure brackets are secured using the hardware provided. The shelf rests on rubber feet screwed into the bottom of the bracket. Each bracket has two covered wire management holes.

Advantages of deploying

• Fastest style to implement because sensors and LEDs are shipped pre-wired and connected to an internal DB Controller.
•Assembly requires basic skill with simple tools.

Disadvantages of deploying

• Shelving is redundant if adequate shelving exists on site. Vertical space will be sacrificed.
• 60” shelves may not be optimum in fixed space installations. If you have 9’ of wall space, one 60” shelf may be installed where Individual Scales & Strut Based Systems will allow you to use all 9’ of space.
• The sensor maximum per fastening point is 12kg.


Individual Scale Family

The family of Individual Scales were designed to accommodate customers with existing shelving, cabinets, work benches, etc.

 





Each scale base is dove-tailed allowing scales of differing sizes to snap together while maintaining perfect spacing between the scales.

Select your scale dimensions, metal thickness and sensor capacity.
Place the scales side-by-side on a sturdy, flat surface and connect the dove-tails.
