Just curious. My Warehouse manager is wanting to know if there are special scales we need to get in order to hook one up to the ShipRush system to have the weights entered directly into the ShipRush application.

I wouldn't think that the scales would be unique, althought the connection to the PC maybe of a specific type.

Any information would be helpful.

Thanks ...

Morning Kent,
Scale information for ShipRush UPS:

http://www.zfirm.com/shiprush/shiprush-v3/Scale_Support.htm

There are other scales not currently listed in the helpfile, but are listed in the software itself under scales.

The most popular is the Fairbanks 70-2453, which is fairly inexpensive, and can be found used on eBay.

All connections use the Serial port (RS232).

couple examples:
