NEW ProScale Models
Models 190, 290, 390 and 590,
will replace Models 180, 280, 380 and 580 systems. The new systems
use a more robust technology with greater resistance to
electrostatic discharge and electromagnetic interference.
Additionally, the new encoder speed increases to 120 inches
per second. The new models, although not interchangeable with the
older technology, are identical in size and function, making them an
easy, direct replacement for the older systems.
DIGITAL READOUTS for Models 180, 280, 380
and 580 are still available, but other parts such as SCALES
and ENCODERS are NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

NEW Firmware Update
A new version of firmware is available for the
following Digital Readout models:
700-1600-235 General Purpose
700-1600-236 General Purpose (w/comp)
700-1600-435 ¼ DIN In-Panel mount
This new firmware addresses a potential issue that may occur when
the batteries in the readout are depleted to a specific low voltage
level AND parameter programming or other updating occurs. In
some cases under these conditions, the memory may be reset to
default factory values without the user’s knowledge.
Accurate Technology, Inc. will provide this firmware upgrade at no
charge. The customer is responsible for shipping charges to our
The occurrence of this issue can be averted by replacing the AA
batteries on a periodic basis every 2 to 3 months for 700-1600-230,
-235, & -236, and 8 to10 months for 700-1600-435, & -700 which
use a 3 volt lithium battery.
