Bioscribe Electronic Fish Measuring Board

Hallprint is now the exclusive global supplier of the amazing new "Bioscribe" electronic fish measuring boards produced by Reality Check in New Zealand after almost 10 years of development work.  These boards are by far the most durable, waterproof and capable electronic boards available on the market. The savings in terms of reduced labour costs and reduced recording errors/data loss can be many times the initial outlay over a relatively short time period.

 A&D Scales (for use on stable surfaces)

Hallprint is now a global supplier of A&D brand weight scales to the fisheries market. These are fully waterproof (IP67 rated) and excellent value for money. We can offer you a package to suit your needs from scales with a 3200g capacity at 0.01g accuracy to a 30kg capacity scale with 1g accuracy. These scales are perfectly matched for use with the Bioscribe electronic measuring board which when connected has drivers to acquire data directly from them through a hotkey on the decal. We work closely with each customer to ensure the best suited product combination for their requirements. A&D scales are backed by a 5 year warranty on selected models.

Please contact us for more information and pricing on A&D scale options or perhaps a tailored package deal to include a Bioscribe measuring board.

Marel Marine Scales (motion compensated for on-board measuring)

Marel Marine Scales are specifically designed for use on board fishing vessels and factory trawlers.  With an in built motion compensation algorithm, they are able to be used on unstable decks and are the perfect match for Bioscribe measuring boards when used onboard a vessel. Data can also be acquired directly from these scales through a hotkey on the decal.

Marlel Marine Scales are equipped with motion compensation devices which compensate for the motion of a vessel at sea, making weighing almost as fast and accurate as on land. 

Please contact us for more information on Marcel scale options and pricing including on a tailored package to include a Bioscribe measuring board.
