The Adam Equipment AE402 weight indicator for wash-down applications has a grade 304 stainless steel housing and wall-mount bracket for use with one to four load cell platforms when weighing outdoors, on a loading dock, in a warehouse, or in other industrial buildings. The sealed indicator and keypad allow the AE402 to be used in wash-down applications, and the unit is rated to IP65 level of protection against dust and water. The rechargeable battery offers up to 90 hours of operation on a single charge, or can be used with the included AC adapter. A green backlit 6-digit liquid crystal display with a character height of 40 mm shows results in six weighting units: kilograms, grams, pounds, ounces, pound-ounces, and Newtons, with check-weighing LEDs showing acceptable weight limits. Indicator has an RS-232 bi-directional interface for communicating with a PC or printer. Useful functions of this indicator include external calibration, capacity tracker, hold measurement, and auto-sleep or power down to save battery life. Applications include weighing, parts counting, dynamic weighing (as when weighing animals), and percentage 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. 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.
