Product Description

The Adam Equipment PGW conventional, or precision, top-loading balance offers precision weighing results. It has a two-second settling time that allows for increased productivity, an external calibration system, to ensure accurate results, and a capacity tracker for visual reference to prevent the balance from being overloaded. The built-in time and date function enables work in compliance with good practices in many industries, including food and pharmaceutical. The integrated RS-232 port connects to a printer or computer for manual or automatic recording of weighing and calibration data.

The balance has a backlit digital display, weighs in up to 18 different units, including one programmable custom unit (models with a readability of 0.001g have 18 units of measurement; models with a readability of 0.01g have 17 units of measurement), and can display or print text in four languages: English, French, German, or Spanish. The application modes include check weighing (with buzzer option), percent weighing, dynamic weighing with programmable parameters, parts counting, and net/total. Security passcodes can be employed to safeguard against mode and settings alteration, while the imbedded security slot works with a lock and cable to ensure balance placement. The durable die-cast aluminum housing protects the internal weighing cell from environmental influences and impact, and the stainless steel weighing pan is corrosion resistant and easy to clean. Adjustable non-slip rear feet provide level measurements and stability, so the balance will not tip under eccentric loads. The included below-balance weighing hook suspends bulky items beneath the balance for weighing.

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. 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.

Came out of the box D.O.A.... wouldn't boot up. Spend a little more money and buy an appropriate Ohaus unit. I did. Wouldn't think of trying one of these again.
