About American Weigh Scales

American Weigh Scales, Inc. (AWS) is a company that specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of digital scales and weighing equipment. The company is based in Norcross, Georgia, USA, and has been in operation for several decades.

AWS offers a wide range of scales for various applications, including kitchen scales, bathroom scales, laboratory scales, industrial scales, and more. These scales are designed to provide precise measurements for a variety of purposes, such as cooking, baking, scientific research, and industrial weighing needs.

Thank you for purchasing the American Weigh X-1500 backlit touchscreen digital bench scale. Please read all operating instructions carefully before use. This electronic scale is a precision instrument. With normal care and proper treatment, it will provide years of reliable service.

Never load the scale with more than the maximum capacity. Overloading will permanently damage it! Avoid any exposure to extreme heat or cold. Your scale works better when operated at normal room temperature. Always allow the scale to acclimatize to normal room temperature for at least one hour before use. Give your scale sufficient warm-up time. Usually, 30-60 seconds before calibration to give the internal components a chance to stabilize.

Keep your scale in a clean environment. Dust, dirt, moisture, vibration, air currents, and a close distance to other electronic equipment can all have an adverse effect on the reliability and accuracy of your scale. Handle with care. Gently apply all items to be weighed onto the tray top. Although this scale is designed to be quite durable, try to avoid rough treatment as this may permanently damage the internal sensor.

Avoid shaking, dropping, or otherwise shocking the scale. This is a precision instrument and must be handled with extreme care.
Only operate the scale on a stable, vibration-free surface.
