Low-profile electronic charging scale

SWITZERLAND: The new Refscale-S electronic charging scale from Refco is designed to simplify the refrigerant exchange process with its sleek and efficient design. 

Just 35mm high, the Refscale-S is said to allows for easy positioning of the refrigerant cylinder on its platform. Its integrated carrying handle and weight of only 3.2kg ensure hassle-free transportation. 

Made from two robust aluminium plates and equipped with a rubber anti-slip mat, the scale is equipped with an M10 thread for the attachment of an optional valve (10612-REF) for refrigerant bottles. 

A resolution of 2g ensures accurate filling, irrespective of a system‘s size. All measurement data is stored in the onboard memory and can be retrieved at any time. The integrated display in kg, lb, and oz includes a back-light and is protected from the cylinder by a guard rail.

Power is supplied via batteries or a USB connection. 

Importantly, the charging scale can compensate for differences in gravity, ensuring precise measurement results in any situation.
