Valor 4000 is NTEP Certified and Measurement Canada Approved, and can function as reference scale for retail applications in which both the operator and customer can see the weighing results.

When performing checkweighing operations on the Valor 4000, the checklights clearly and quickly confirm results. The Valor 4000 also boasts a touchless, infrared sensor in the rear of the scale to offer hands-free operation of the tare function for the second operator and reduces the risk of food contamination on the scale.
