It is essential to know the functions offered by the scales that suit the requirements of the laboratories, and for this, it must take into account the design, size, calibration capacities, weighing capacity, weighing units (grams, kg and / or lbs.), margin of error and battery durability. Based on this, the analytical balance meets the requirements within the laboratories, offering more accurate results, and easier reading. 
This tool, specializes in its accuracy, and sensitivity, becoming an instrument that provides data and results, measures with real values, avoiding the smallest possible error. 
Finally, the analytical balance offers functional characteristics, because it has sensors to measure the weight, visible on a well-lit screen, and at a size that facilitates vision.

Types of Scales a Lab May Need

  • Color Plastic Housing/Aluminum Housing
  • LCD/tare function
  • Overload Alarm/Level Gage
  • Option: Interface/Printer/Windscreen

The versatility of a conventional balance, such as domestic scales, varies depending on the measurement of the weight of the product, and is clearly understood  by the altitude and geographical latitude at which it is located. On the other hand, laboratory scales are responsible for calculating the mass of a sample, which is invariable, since it belongs to the amount of matter of the product being weighed.

Precision Balance

Accuracy is the number of decimal places used to express what is measured, while accuracy indicates the degree of approximation between the measured value and the actual value to be measured. On the other hand, if we refer to a series of measurements, the accuracy is the degree of grouping or repeatability of the measured values or dispersion of the results, while the accuracy represents the degree of approximation between the mean of the measured values and the real value.

  • AC/LCD and DC power supply
  • Tare/Count/Unit Conversion Function (g/ct/oz)
  • Minimum Weighing Set
  • Overload Alarm/Level Gage
  • Option: Dual Display/Interface/Printer/Windproof/Dust Cover
