The Adam Equipment CPWplus floor scale has an indicator with a large backlit digital display for clear readings in either bright or dim lighting. The six-foot cable allows the indicator to be placed where it is most readable, out of the way of the platform. Using the integrated bracket, the indicator can be mounted on a wall or propped on a table and then tilted to adjust the viewing angle. The steel platform is durable and stable, and the stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion and is easy to clean. The scale can be operated using AC power or the built-in rechargeable battery, offering full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find, for up to 60 hours. The auto off option can be enabled to power off the scale automatically after periods of inactivity to conserve power.
The scale has an automatic external calibration system as well as a programmable hold function for dynamic weighing of unstable samples (such as animals) or in unstable environments, and it tares and weighs in four different units. The built-in RS-232 port connects to a computer or printer for recording data, and printing can be synchronized with the scale’s hold function to print automatically when the measurement is stable. When used according to manufacturer’s recommendations, this product is covered by a one-year warranty.
Scales and balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, using infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a computer.
Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which was founded in the United Kingdom in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.
