USB Weighing Scales
Another first From Weighing Solutions & Instrumentation is the actual USB weighing scales or Weighing Scales with USB connectivity. When we say “actual USB weighing scales,” we mean the scales are not having USB connectivity by converting the standard serial port to the USB by serial to USB converters. Which almost every manufacturer is doing in India today. These scales are having real USB port and not the RS-232 to USB converters installed.
Problems with RS-232 Enabled Scales:
The modern computer systems does not have RS-232 connectivity as standard now a days. You need to buy a older computer system or you need to install PCI Express card to have a serial port connectivity in modern computer systems. However, it is not possible to install the PCI express cards in the laptops and none of the laptop available in market have serial port. The weighing scales available in the market have only RS-232 serial port connectivity. For connecting the weighing scales to the computer system. As the RS-232 port is obsolete now and the USB port have taken over. Most of the manufacturers of digital weighing scales are installing a Serial to USB converter inside the weighing scale to make them USB enabled. This does not give trouble free operation to the user. The most common problem faced by the user is that the device gets disconnected very often. And it is not easy to reconnect the device. Sometimes, it requires to restart the system to enable the system to recognise the device and reconnect. Also the connection speed is slower than the actual USB devices. These problems become very huge in critical and high speed applications.
To enable customers to enjoy trouble free operation along with high speed USB connectivity, We, at Weighing Solutions & Instrumentation launched our XD and XR series, GODSUN make digital weighing scales and other weighing systems with true USB connectivity. These scales and system are not having a Serial to USB converter installed and hence are true USB devices.
