We've developed plenty of new sensors but this time we wanted to spotlight how our established Hive Scale has just kept getting better and better over the years. Hivemind's talking scale has come a long way since the early days in terms of making it a robust industrial product.
Robustness: Our original scale had a 300kg weight limit and would damage after that. It now has overload protection and can handle overload over 1000kg. This means you can stack multiple pallets of hives during transport with the scales in place, as many of our large scale customers already do.
Radio signal: The radio signal is now several times stronger which means it is a little easier to get a good signal link between the scale and the satellite hub.
Access: The battery holder is now easier to access, and can be slipped out the end of the scale using a quick-release lever: no need to move the hive off the scales. Plus the magnetic installation button has become easier to press and is more reliable.
Plenty of other small features have been added that you probably haven't even noticed: greater reporting reliability, better weather proofing, and tare-weight functionality.
