Application Modes
Weighing - Determines the weight of items on the pan in the selected unit of measure.
Parts Counting - Counts the number of pieces on the pan using a uniform weight.
Percent Weighing - Measures the weight of a sample displayed as a percentage of a pre-established reference weight.
Check Weighing - Compares the weight of a sample against target limits.
Dynamic Weighing - Weighs an unstable sample load. The balance takes an average of weights over a period of time.
Totalization - Measures cumulative weight of multiple items. Cumulative total may exceed balance capacity.
Density Determination - Determines density of solids or liquid. With the integrated weigh below hook, it is possible to perform specific gravity tests for objects that cannot be easily placed on the weighing pan.
Display Hold - Manually holds the last stable weight or the first highest stable weighing value on the display.
Mole Weighing - Measures the weight of a sample and calculates it into Moles automatically
