Scale strain taken by micro power

MICROPROCESSOR and strain gauge technology are incorporated in Graham & Whites latest addition to its digital scales range.

The Herts-based firm says the Weighmate Junior is designed to eliminate the difficulties in obtaining accurate readings from traditional spring-type needle instruments; the Weighmate gives a direct digital reading.

Housed in a plastic case, the scales are available with maximum capacities of 33lb or 55lb, and 15kg, 25kg or 50kg. Power is supplied by a 9V battery, and prices start at £38 (01727-859373).
