P R O D U C T D ATA S H E E T SCALE Features: • Equipped with a display for weight information and error indication - max 255 kg. (562lbs). • 2-hand control - safety via Enable button plus Function button. • Accuracy adjustment of the measured weight with 100 or 500 grams accuracy (0.2205 or 1.102 pounds/lbs). As default the setting is 500 grams (1.102 pounds/ lbs) accuracy. This setting will be the approved setting according to EN60601-1 / 45501. According to the standards the 100 gram setting is not an approved setting but serves as a guidance only. • Auto compensation of the patient weight. E.g. this feature enables the staff to add or remove items from the bed, e.g. a pillow - without affecting the weight of the patient. Max. auto compensation with +/- 100kg. The auto compensation is reset by unplugging the mains supply or zeroing the bed. If a battery is present the system can be “wokenup” by activating a handset or similar. • Reset/Zero adjustment of the weight of the bed to omit the weight of a mattress. Use of the function must be made before the patient enters the bed and before the patient weight is measured. Max. adjustment level is 50 kg. • Out of bed detection is possible. With this function enabled a signal is given when the patient leaves the bed. The alarm will be activated when leaving the bed (corresponding to 50% loss of the patient weight). The volume setting is indicated via 3 LEDs, one for each volume level. • Weight Unit selection. Two versions are available one for kg and one for lbs. The reason is that two measurement units in one device cannot be approved according to EN45501. E.g. ‘lbs’ as a measurement unit is not allowed in EU because of standards and legal restrictions. • Compatible with CB16 OBL, CB6/16 OBF and CB20 (not CB6 OBL). • Two standard front covers are available. • Ergonomically shaped and easy to operate. The same housing platform as for the ACO is used for the SCO display. • High-strength plastic housing protects the electronics. The SCALE system is an overall LINAK article description for weight measuring comprising a display device (SCO = Scale Control Openbus™) and a calculation device for load measuring (QLCI = Quad Load Cell Interface). It is developed for the OpenBus™ product range (not CB6 OBL). The SCALE item ‘SCO’ is the user interface to carry out the measurements. The QLCI item ‘QLCI’ is a ‘black box’ with advanced electronics to calculate measurements obtained from third party suppliers of load cell devices. The SCALE system provides complete weight measuring equipment made for the Hospital and Care environment, typically connected and mounted in a hospital bed. The equipment enables the staff to carry out measurements with the patient staying in bed - whereas existing methods require the patient to leave the bed. Working with disabled patients may make the usual weighing methods a struggle to overcome for the patient. Sometimes using the current weight measurement methods may be even impossible.
