The latest announcement from Cardinal Scale is very exciting for those of us in the weighing industry. Over the years quite a few scale owners have asked what is the easiest way to connect their computer to the scale? And the answer provided to them is usually well, yes you can connect your scale to the PC but it will only be to Hyper Terminal or yes, you can connect your scale to the computer but you need to by some type of wedge software. But, now with the new Cardinal 2XX-USBA option board which is listed as USB-A Card, 2 USB-A Ports, One Micro SD Port â€“ you have the ability to add a USB flash drive to a select group of Cardinal indicators like the 205, 210 and 225 and easily collect weighing data.

Itâ€™s easy to add titles to the columns and sum the weight column to determine the total amount of weight that youâ€™ve weighed over a period of time. To learn more about this, click here.
