With a weighing capacity of up to 1020 grams and the versatility to weigh objects as light as 0.2 grams with 0.001 gram readability, the MS1003S is a great balance for high precision and versatile weighing. Equipped with MonoBloc weighing technology, Mettler Toledo’s high performance weighing cell, the balance offers a winning combination of fast settling times (2 second stabilization time), and consistently accurate and reliable results (0.002 g linearity, and 0.001 g repeatability). The balance also comes equipped with fully automatic time and temperature controlled internal adjustment (FACT) technology, guaranteeing fast, accurate, and precise results in any weighing environment (3 ppm/C sensitivity drift). The housing is constructed out of high grade die cast aluminum which protects the balance and its sensitive sensors from any chemicals, environmental influences, and impacts. Even with intensive use, the balance provides you with consistent and precise results year after year for a long service life. Installation is quick and easy with the adjustable leveling feet and the clearly visible level indicator placed in the front of the balance. Operation of the balance is made user friendly by a high contrast display with big numbers, clear symbols and an intuitive menu enabling users to operate the balance quickly and easily. And with 3 freely programmable SmartKeys, routine tasks can be started at the touch of a button. If you require data transfer of your results, the balance is equipped with RS232 and USB ports, easily connecting you to a pc, printer, or bar code reader. When finished with operation of the balance, clean up is made quick and easy through the QuickLock draft shield. The QuickLock draft shield can be dismantled in a few quick movements without moving the balance, and be washed in the dishwasher.
