Features and functions


NTEP Approved for Prescription use and Pill Counting
The DRX5 series scales are manufactured in ISO 9001 certified facilities and are NTEP Certified for pill counting and prescription weighing in a pharmacy. This series includes scales ranging in capacity from 200 g to 500 g, with readability of 1 milligram. All scales meet Handbook 44 requirements for Class A balances and are legal for trade..

Certificate #: 07-044 NTEP Approved

Onscreen Instructions
In addition to labeling a drug with an actual name the user can assign a production LOT number. Labeling the drug with the actual name and LOT number is quickly and easily done via an external keyboard connected to the scale’s PS/2 port. The LOT number entry is particularly useful when maintaining drug’s average piece weight.

Advanced Pill Counting Accuracy
APA is an advanced pill counting algorithm that can adjust for production LOT pill weight variations and provide even greater accuracy when counting large quantities. The feature is very easy to use and requires little user interaction.

Deviation Warning
The Deviation warning feature allows checking for possible discrepancy between the stored average piece weight, and the average piece weight of the drug which is to be counted. The feature signals if a deviation greater than +/- 2% is found.

Remaining to Fill Display
When performing a counting transaction, the remaining to fill feature assists in achieving cut off at the proper pill count. When the feature is enabled, in addition to the displayed pill count, a remaining to fill countdown is displayed. The display indicates how many more pills must be placed in the vial to achieve the desired count, and always indicates “0” at the target count. This feature helps to prevent overfilling. If too many pills are added, an overfill indicator displays the number of pills that should be removed from the vial.

Counting Transaction Printing
This feature allows the user to print a record of a performed counting transaction. The printed receipt indicates the date and time of the performed transaction, as well as the NDC code, drug name, production LOT number, average piece weight and the actual count. The printed receipt may be used as a logging tool for the counting feature.

PS/2 External Keyboard Port
Any external full PC keyboard can be connected to the scale via the PS/2 port. This allows the user to input data quickly and easily. External keyboard connection becomes particularly useful when entering drug data such as the actual drug name or the production LOT number.


Auto Calibration
The state-of-the-art self-calibrating mechanism keeps the scale calibrated at all times, thereby providing optimum weighing accuracy. The scale will automatically calibrate itself at startup, pre-set time intervals or whenever required by temperature changes. The need for an external calibration weight is eliminated, while providing the user with confidence that measurements are accurate and correct.

Graphical Display
The DRX 5 series scales are equipped with a Graphical LCD display which measures 134mm x 40.4mm (240 x 64 dots). The LCD displays full text and graphics which makes the scale user-friendly and intuitive.

Sealed Keypad
A sealed front panel protects the keypad from spills, dust, and wear and tear. An adequate number of keys, including numeric and navigation keys, eliminates key multiplexing and creates a user-friendly interface.

Navigation Keys
The scale’s Navigation Keys allow the user to easily and intuitively operate through the scale’s function menus and configuration procedures. Each operation is fast and can be completed within seconds. In addition, for the operator’s convenience, the scale is equipped with dual TARE keys located on each side of the unit.

Filling Meter
This compounding feature includes a Filling Meter function that assists the user in the filling process. The meter is a none-linear indicator that indicates a cut-off point at which the meter indicator becomes very sensitive, therefore it allows the user to stop filling at the desired weight with greater accuracy.

Remaining to Fill
In compounding a digital remaining to fill display indicates how much weight is needed to reach the desired weight. The user is asked to key in the desired weight of an ingredient before filling. This allows the scale to track the filled weight and display the remaining amount. If too much weight is placed, an excess indicator will be displayed, along with the amount of weight that should be removed. s

Ingredient Labeling
This feature allows you to assign unique names or labels to individual ingredients within the compound. The name of the ingredient and its weight are stored in the scale’s memory.

Recipe Archiving
The compounding feature allows storing the entire recipe in a library that can be viewed at a later time. The archived record includes the date, time and total of a performed compound as well as the name and the weight of each ingredient.

Recipe Printing
A printed receipt indicates the date and time of the performed transaction. It will also list, in order, the weight of each ingredient and indicate the total weight of the recipe. This feature becomes particularly useful when a back-trail of the compounding transaction is required.

Onscreen Instruction
The large pixel type LCD display allows for graphics and full-text, onscreen instruction to be displayed to assist the user throughout the compounding function. When making a recipe or compounding, the scale guides the user through every step of the process, making compounding fast easy and accurate.
