CALIBRATION AND THE EFFECTS OF THE ENVIRONMENT
All digital scales are calibrated by the factory prior to shipment. From time to time your scales will need to be re calibrated according the manufacturers instructions.

- Drafts and vibration - wind pressure and even the slightest movement can affect the accuracy of your scales.
