WHAT DOES WEIGHMETER DO?
Weighmeter and Overload Indicators are technological features that help protect against crushed load cells due to excessive amount of weight placed on the weighing platform, commonly referred to as overload.
If the Weighmeter or Overload Indicator icon appears on your scale, then you are either approaching or have reached the maximum capacity of the scale. Remove all items from the weighing platform immediately if the Weighmeter or Overload Indicator icon appears on the scale display.
WHAT IS OVERLOAD?
Overload is the term that refers to a crushed load cell due to placing excessive weight above the digital scale’s capacity on the weighing platform, which may cause the internal readings and the resulting measurements to be inaccurate.
AVOID CRUSHING LOAD CELL
Always pay attention to a scale’s maximum capacity when weighing items, and avoid weighing items that are heavier the scale’s maximum capacity. Crushed load cells are not be eligible for warranty repairs. Scale overload is not covered under warranty because it is a user error and not a design or manufacturing defect.
