Detecto Printer Scale

By Michael


The Detecto scale is a counter scale printer that can weigh and print out barcodes. Establishments such as delis or supermarkets will have a separate scale where the cashier would punch in the PLU (Price Look-Up) code of the item, weigh the item, and then print out a barcode for the weighed item. Then this barcode is brought to the front counter to be rung up and paid for.


The scale is a separate piece of hardware that acts independently from Revel’s POS application. The scale will need to be programmed separately, which includes entering in the PLUs. Make note, the PLU must be programmed for 5 digits for the Revel application to properly read the barcodes.


Please refer to the downloadable manual above to learn more about the Detecto scale.
