In today’s entry we’re going to provide some very basic operating instructions for the new Ohaus Aviator 7000 retail scale.

Check with your local state weights and measures for the correct procedures for your particular state.

You fill containers with your products or customers bring their own
container. The tare function makes sure that only the goods are entered
and paid. If you know the weight of your containers, you can enter the tare weight
via the keyboard. So you do not have to tare the empty container.

The scales that we usually talk about each month can be referred to as quite a few different names. Some folks call them retail scales while others prefer to say they are scales for computing the price per pound. Others like to say they are calculating scales or certified legal for trade. We generally just call them price computing scales. These products work great at places like fudge shops, candy stores, frozen yogurt stores and farmers markets because the operation of the products is pretty simple.
You basically place the item on the scale, enter the price per pound that you wish to charge your customer, and the scale computes the price per pound on both the front display and the back display. This is great because both the farmer or the candy shop owner can see the price and the customer buying the apples or the cup of butter pecan frozen yogurt can see how much they owe. Speaking of yogurt we also should mention that some of the scales can compute price per ounce which is especially useful for sellers looking to charge patrons by the ounce.
