The Adam Equipment CPWplus wheeled floor scale has a large metal handle frame with two rear wheels, which allows for portability. For increased visibility when measuring bulky items, the indicator attaches to the handle frame using the integrated bracket, which tilts to adjust the viewing angle. The indicator has a large backlit digital display for clear readings in either bright or dim lighting. 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 function can be enabled to power off the scale automatically after periods of inactivity to conserve power.
The scale tares over the full range and weighs in four different units. It 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. 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 or 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.
