Tech Tip: Wolf Overhead Sizing Scale Calibration Best Practices

Routine Wolf scale software and hardware calibration improves weighing accuracy. To keep your Wolf Bridge Sensor or DSC functioning at optimal capacity, follow our recommended calibration schedule.


Software Calibration

  • Calibrate daily, ideally the beginning of the first shift
  • For added accuracy, calibrate at the beginning of every shift

Hardware Calibration

  • Calibrate weekly
  • Every time a Load Cell is changed or replaced, a hardware and software calibration must be done
Contact our team for more details or training information on scale calibration.
