Most digital indicators work with Scale Designs’ hopper/blender scales. We sell a number of digital indicators but for our systems we recommend the Transcell TI-500ESS (Stainless Steel) for a good solid economical indicator. When there are visibility issues we recommend the Tara Systems Model TR-1-NK.


TI-500ESS is an NTEP certified rugged industrial digital indicator housed in a stainless steel NEMA 4X enclosure and works well with Scale Designs’ products. It comes with a large 0.6” display for easy readout of up to 50,000 display divisions, and has power for up to 4-350Ω load cells. All setup parameters may be entered via the front panel keys. The TI-500ESS uses full duplex RS-232 serial format for communications with many types of attached support equipment. The unit can transmit data on demand, or continuously in a popular data protocol to match a wide variety of printers , remote displays, or personal computers.
