The Hamer Model 200NW+ net weigh scale is suited for small weighments of 0.5 pounds (226 grams) to 30 lb. (13.6 kilograms) into bags, boxes or jugs. This net weigh scale is designed similarly to the Hamer Model 600NW+.
The repeatable accuracy of the Model 200NW+ is derived from its mechanical design, direct mount load cells and Rice Lake 920i control system with specially developed Hamer software. In a simplex format, it can reach up to 30 weighments per minute. When configured in a duplex, triplex or quad system, this net weigh scale can achieve speeds greater than 60 to 80 weighments per minute. Producers can fill their smaller format packaged product (fertilizer, minerals, industrial dry solids, seed & grain, animal feed, pet food, etc.), with the Model 200NW+.
