Sartorius is pleased to introduce the new Signum® Supreme series scales offering high overload protection, rugged stainless steel construction, excellent accuracy and outstanding chemical resistance. The Signum® Supreme is a very compact industrial scale that has been specifically designed for use in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food and chemical industries. Best of all the scale series features a proprietary monolithic weigh cell that delivers resolutions as high as 350,000 d.

Outstanding features and options
Users can choose from three application levels, a variety of resolutions, and a large selection of interfaces and other options. This adaptability makes Signum® Supreme ideal from simple weighing to more demanding applications, such as

  • Checkweighing “Over-under Weighing”
  • Averaging “Animal Weighing”
  • Formulation
  • Piece Counting


Key features and benefits include:

  • Unique “speed-up” technology, the Signum® Supreme is extremely fast-saving the user time and money.
  • IP65 Wash-down protection means the scale is dust tight and protected from penetration by jets of water
  • Smooth surfaces for easy cleaning and maintenance
  • 660 pound overload protection on all models ensures accuracy in abusive environments
  • Rugged construction means reliable and repeatable weighing results even under changing ambient conditions
  • Memory for up to 300 products, with independent ID fields.


Optional interfaces including Ethernet, Analog, Profibus-DP and more

A winning combination of Ergonomics, Safety and Data Transfer Capabilities
The display and control unit can be set-up within minutes – whether next to the weighing platform, on a column, or mounted on the wall. Signum® Supreme scales meet all the requirements for state-of-the-art data transfer, including Ethernet and PLC connectivity. An optional analog/digital converter can be selected for a second weighing platform, such as a reference or bulk weigher scale.

Whether the scale has to be washed down regularly, is integrated in a production network, or is frequently moved to different areas in the facility, the new Signum® Supreme series meets all user requirements, without compromising accuracy or reliability.
