BSI-1 is a microprocessor based integrator that receives the signals from the weighbridge loadcell and belt speed tachometer. It calculates the rate material is moving on the belt (TPH) and the total amount of material that has traveled on the belt in tons or tonnes, as calibrated. It outputs totalization pulses for driving remote counters and indicates rate to remote units via linear 4-20 ma or 0-20 current loop signal. The rate signal can be digitally delayed, in one second selectable steps, up to 5 minutes.

Scales need to be calibrated at regular intervals, which requires certified test weight. Apple Valley Scale Company uses certified test weights traceable to NIST. New test weights can also be purchased or rented. Apple Valley Scale Company can supply a large variety of test weights, ranging in classification from Class 1 to Class F.

A commercial scale is any scale used for buying or selling product. When commercial scales are out of calibration, someone loses—either the seller is giving away product, or the buyer is not getting what he is paying for. For this reason, commercial scales should be checked for accuracy and calibrated every 6 months or yearly, depending on volume of use.
