The Adam Equipment CBD counting scale with auxiliary scale provides precision weighing and counting results, and connects to an external platform (remote scale) with up to four load cells for applications that require more than one scale setting or a larger capacity. The stainless steel, 275 x 225mm (W x D) pan is corrosion resistant, and can be easily removed from the base for quick clean-up. The scale can be operated using AC power or the built-in rechargeable battery, for up to 90 hours, offering full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find. The auto off function can be enabled to power off the scale automatically after periods of inactivity to conserve power. The scale has an automatic external calibration function to ensure repeatable measurements. The integrated RS-232 port connects to a printer or PC for manual or automatic external recording of data.
The scale weighs in kilograms and pounds and has backlit liquid crystal screen that clearly displays weight, unit weight, and piece count. The scale performs weighing, parts-counting, check-counting, and remote-operation tasks. Weight and tare data for up to 100 different products can be programmed into the scale and recalled during routine weighing and counting tasks. During parts-counting or check-weighing tasks, an indicator on the screen and an optional audible alarm notify the user if a load is below, above, or at the pre-set target. The ABS-plastic housing protects the internal weighing cell from environmental influences and impacts, and the adjustable nonslip feet provide level measurements and stability, so the scale will not tip under eccentric loads.
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.
