Notable Features

  • The 2800 is equipped with dual displays — a seven segment liquid crystal display (LCD) for communicatingweight data; and a secondary 16 character alphanumeric LCD for operator prompts and messages.
  • Programmable Zero Band Error helps eliminate the possibility of an operator unintentionally masking an error or “zeroing” the error off.
