The On Balance table top also boasts a counting function with an optional adaptor for long term usage. Capacity: 500g Net weight: 600 g Dimensions: 20 x 15.3 x 2.8 cm

  • 500 g
    The maximum amount that the scale can weigh at one time. You should select a scale with enough capacity to weigh your heaviest items with some padding to account for shock loading and rough treatment.
  • 0.1 g
    The smallest interval the display will show between consecutive measurements. We recommend choosing a scale with a readability that is at least one decimal place to the right of the smallest digit you are concerned with for your measurements. ie. If your measurements are critical to 0.1g, you should use a scale with 0.01g readability.
  • 5,000 d
    Total Divisions
    The total number of scale divisions or steps from zero to max capacity. Higher division counts allow finer granularity but increase the cost significantly and require a very stable environment for proper use.
