p>The Adam Equipment GK weight indicator works with a weighing platform that has up to four load cells to perform weighing, check-weighing, percent-weighing, and parts-counting tasks, as well as dynamic weighing for unstable samples (such as animals or in unstable environments. For applications that are more complex, tare weights, unit weights, and sample sizes can be entered manually using the full numeric keypad. Red, yellow, and green LED lights and an optional audible alarm notify the user during check-weighing mode if the load is over, under, or within the preset weight limit. The indicator calculates weight or piece-count totals to streamline multi-step tasks, while the 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 ABS-housed indicator has an automatic external calibration system and weighs in five different units. Using the included bracket and hardware, it can be mounted to a wall or propped on a table and then titled to adjust the viewing angle for maximum visibility. The large backlit digital screen clearly displays readings, a real time clock (RTC), and a capacity tracker for visual reference to prevent the balance from being overloaded. The indicator operates 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 70 hours. To conserve battery power, the auto off function can be enabled to activate after periods of inactivity.

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.
