SR Scales Expands Touchless Weighing Options

Stand-on Scales Feature Always-on Power Supply and Antimicrobial Product Protection

Tonawanda, NY - November 23, 2020 - SR Instruments, a leading manufacturer of purpose-built scales for hospitals, medical centers, and long-term care facilities, announced that its flagship product line, SR Scales, has expanded its number of touchless scales.

Three of SR Scales' popular DC-only powered scales now support both AC and battery power. This new feature enables the scales to be located in a stationary area, plugged in, and ready to instantly display a patient's weight. Compared to the battery-only versions of the scales, the new touchless option means that medical personnel do not need to touch the scale's display to activate its operation when taking a patient's weight. The new AC upgrades are available on the following models:

  • SR555i-AC
  • SR585i-AC
  • SR755i-AC

This brings to a total of five SR stand-on scales that feature touchless weighing. Other SR Scales' floor models that already have touchless weighing include the SR411i and the SR416i.

Besides touchless weighing, SR Scales feature antimicrobial product protection. SR Scales with antimicrobial technology provide added protection against the growth of bacteria on the scales. Touchless weighing and antimicrobial product protection are a powerful combination for hospital purchasing managers considering new or replacement scales. SR Scales infused with antimicrobial product protection do not replace existing cleaning practices at medical facilities, but rather complement existing cleaning protocols.
