As a device that measures weight, the commercial scale is used to provide a size measurement of items in various units. In electronic scale designs, the deflection of a beam supporting the weight is measured using a strain gauge. Scales also may be built with digital load cells. Companies that capture scale measurements must often comply with commercial laws or performance standards, and professional device calibration can be part of a compliance program.
