The Adam Equipment floor scale and GK indicator provides clear readings of measurements on a large backlit display and has a full numerical keypad. The 10-foot shielded cable allows the indicator to be placed where it is most readable, out of the way of the scale. Using the integrated bracket and hardware, the indicator can be mounted to the wall or propped on a table and then tilted to adjust the viewing angle. The steel weighing platform measures 1,200 x 1,200mm, and is low profile for easy loading and unloading, and has four load cells, a tread plate with a raised cross-hatch surface for slip resistance, and four nonslip rubber feet that adjust to level the platform. The scale operates using AC power or the built-in rechargeable battery, offering full mobility for up to 70 hours in the field and when a power supply is hard to find. The auto off option can be enabled to power off the scale automatically after periods of inactivity to conserve power. The indicator’s integrated RS-232 port connects to a printer or PC for manual or automatic data recording with text in English, French, German, or Spanish.
The scale weighs in five different units and provides a capacity tracker for visual reference to prevent it from being overloaded. The scale performs weighing, check-weighing, percent-weighing, and parts-counting tasks, as well as dynamic weighing for unstable samples (such as animals) or in unstable environments. Red, green, and yellow LED lights and an optional audible alarm notify the user during check-weighing mode if the load is under, over, or within the pre-set weight limit. Internal memory calculates weight or piece-count totals to streamline multi-step tasks.
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.
