What is the B-400?
The Marsden B-400 is a Trade Approved stainless steel bench scale with a choice of capacities and graduations. The scale is IP67-certified meaning it has protection against moisture and dust – therefore can be regularly wiped down to keep clean and hygienic.
This easy to use, lightweight scale is powered by 4x AA batteries or via the AC adaptor included. The B-400 is perfectly suited for weighing to determine a price – for example in fishmongers, bakeries and butchers shops. We also recommend the B-400 for industrial kitchens and food factories for weighing ingredients and produce.
What is a Trade Approved Scale?
If a weighing scale is being used for pricing goods based on weight, then legally it needs to be a Trade Approved scale like the B-400.
Trade Approved scales may also be known as Class III Approved scales, Trade Stamped, Verified, EC Stamped or Trading Standards Approved. Trade Approved scales are subject to greater testing than standard scales, to ensure they deliver accurate and repeatable readings.
What does the IP rating mean?
The IP rating is a reference to the scale’s level of protection. The first digit (e.g. ‘6’) refers to the scale’s protection to dust. The second digit (in this case ‘7’) is protection against water and other liquids.
IP65 rated scales are protected against moisture when they are wiped down with a damp cloth. IP67 scales are protected against water and can be washed down. If the scale is IP68 rated, it is fully waterproof and can survive in some of the most punishing environments.
Why should I choose the B-400?
Choose the B-400 if you need a portable, IP-rated bench scale that can be used for pricing goods based on weight.
