The initial design has a great deal to do with the final quality of the pill counter as well as the type of experience the user will have with the product. The user has a number of things to look for in determining whether or not they are buying a quality pill counting scale.
The heart of a quality is its load cell and suspension. The load cell should be of the electromagnetic force restoration type where the weight of the unknown is balanced out by the force generated by sending an electric current through a coil which is sitting in a high level magnetic field. The suspension should be of the Roberval type which compensates for end and side loads and allows the scale to be top loading.
The force motor should be made of the highest quality magnets and best iron in a close tolerance mechanical design. All of the units should be completely assembled in IS0-9001 facilities. The suspension contains a number of flexures that are the key to a good Roberval suspension. These flexures are in essence intended to serve as frictionless pivots, and are, therefore, necked down to a very thin cross section at one point.
All Torbal pill counting scales come in cast metal housings and have heavy metal bases to prevent any warping with time or temperature. The electronics are all state of the art micro chips mounted on multilayer pc boards. All tested and burned in before final assembly. Attention to detail does make a difference. All of the front panel controls and keyboards are sealed and waterproof.
All pill counters incorporate a draft ring to minimize the effects of air currents when weighing. Some pill counting scales provide automatic internal calibration so that time and temperature have little to no effect upon the scale’s calibration, a great benefit to the user that is concerned about maintaining accuracy at all times.
Then there is the software which provides the functionality of the various scale features. Not only must it provide for ease of use, but it must be bug free. Careful testing by skilled technicians is part of the secret, but good programmers, who know their subject and write clean code, are even more important.
Always look for approvals from accredited organizations like NTEP, they test rigorously to high standards.
