Features and Functions
The DRX-4C is equipped with an NTEP-certified, legal-for-trade counting feature for prescription filling. The 4C is built with a high quality electromagnetic force restoration load-cell and a rugged dies-cast metal housing which makes the scale durable, and guarantees long operating life. The DRX-4C has a capacity of 300g with readability of 1 milligram, and it meets Handbook 44 requirements for Class A prescription balances.
The DRX-4C is equipped with a database capacity that allows it to store over 3000 NDC codes and pill weights. Adding new drugs to the database is part of a short and fast pill counting process. NDC codes are quickly and easily added to the database, which may be maintained by updating the stored sample sizes and weights.
The counting feature is designed in the form of a short wizard which leads the user step-by-step through this simple operation, allowing the user to count quickly, accurately and easily. The feature is very user-friendly with the counting process usually taking only few seconds to complete. Pills are counted essentially as fast as they are poured into the vial
The NDC verification feature eliminates potential errors in prescription filling. It ensures that the correct prescription is counted and filled. The feature allows the user to compare two NDC codes and check for a match. The Rx label barcode can be compared to the stock bottle barcode. As a part of the pill counting operation, NDC verification is performed in three easy steps.
This feature allows the user to print a record of a performed counting transaction. The printed receipt indicates the date and time of the performed transaction as well as the NDC code, average pill weight, and actual count. The printed receipt may be used as a logging tool for the counting feature.
The DRX-4C is equipped with a high performance single-line laser barcode scanner. Automatic activation and excellent depth of field ensures fast and reliable scanning of the NDC barcodes at all times.
Every DRX-4C is equipped with two RS232C data output ports. One port is designated for laser barcode scanner and the other can be used to connect the unit to a printer or a PC. When connected to a PC or a printer data is quickly transferred with a single push of a key.
The DRX-4C is an excellent tool for compounding and recipe making. The compounding feature will add up the recipe ingredients and print a detailed receipt. While compounding, the scale stores the weights of each ingredient in its memory and allows the user at any time to tally the recipe. A printed receipt indicates the date and time of the performed transaction. It will also list in order the weight of each ingredient and indicate the total of the recipe.
This prescription, 300-gram-capacity Class II scale, with a resolution of .001g, has a tare capacity equal to its range, and it displays a used capacity indicator whenever weighing or counting tablets. The capacity indicator allows the user to avoid exceeding the maximum capacity of the scale by displaying the amount of capacity used as percent.
All DRX-4 series scales are equipped with a 7-segment LCD display which ensures excellent visibility of weighing and pill counting results. In addition, each scale is equipped with a sealed front panel which protects the keys and the LCD display from dust and accidental spills.
The need for a draft shield is eliminated by the unique design of the pan shield. Under most circumstance an additional shield is not needed. Having a wide open access to the weighing pan makes pill counting and weighing operations faster as well as comfortable in use.
Calibration, which in many states must be performed by a State Inspector, is now a simple procedure. The scale leads the operator through the process, whose only requirement is a single 300-gram weight. The scale is also configured with all necessary standard sealing features.
The die-cast metal base uses a tripod support system with two adjustable legs, which when combined with a bubble level indicator, provides the user with an easy-to-level scale.
