They are made up of a scale platform, a weighing tray, display, keypad, and a tare button. These are powered by button cell or batteries of AA or AAA size.
Generally, this device works with the help of a microprocessor chip placed inside it. These also consist of transducers called as the strain gauges which measure the amount of deformation caused by the force applied by the weight of the product.
Some digital scale may use hydraulic transducers which are called as a load cell.
Digital Scales are used to measure body weight or calculate the body mass index (BMI).
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is a scale used for?
A scale is any device that measures the weight of an article. The article whose weight needs to be measured is placed on one side and on the other side weigh stones are placed. When the indicator rests in between the two, then the scale is balanced and the correct weight is selected.
2. How does a digital scale measure body fat?
These types of scales use bioelectrical impedance. These devices transmit safe and a very low current over the lower part of the body and the scale measures the speed of the current. The electric current flows more rapidly through the water and muscle than the fat or bones.
3. Are digital scales more accurate?
Yes, they are considered to be more accurate as they can self-reset to zero. Bathroom scale for that purpose is an excellent example.
