The Adam Equipment GFK165aH floor check weighing scale has a 165 pound (75 kg) capacity and 0.01 lb (5 g) accuracy (also called readability). The 6-digit backlit LCD and numeric keypad simplifies entering the unit weight for parts counting applications and shows unit weight, total weight and number of pieces. A grade 304 stainless steel top pan with mild steel base and pillar mounted ABS plastic indicator make the GFC durable. The typical stabilization time is 2-3 seconds for productivity. This scale has a RS-232 bi-directional interface for use with a PC or printer. Useful applications included with this scale include real-time clock and automatic external calibration. The scale itself weighs 27.5 lbs, with a 15.7 by 19.7 inch (400 by 500 mm) pan and overall dimensions of 24.4 x 33.9 x 15.7 inches (620 by 860 by 400 mm) (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object, while scales are used to measure the weight of an object. The measurement results from balances are generally considered to be more precise compared to results from scales. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate 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. 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. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise and accurate than analytical balances.
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.
