Plus AND's WinCT data acquisition software data communication software works with either the FXi or FZi balance. Other manufacturer's charge you $100's more for either their balance communication software or a third party software, but with the A&D you can download WinCT balance software free. There is also an optional FXi-08 ethernet interface or FXi-02 USB interface available at an additional cost if you prefer not to use RS232 to transfer data from the balance to your computer.

Can you work with less weighing capacity? How about 600 gams? The A&D Weighing EK610J electronic digital scale has 600 grams weighing capacity with 0.01 grams readability. The scale features a 4.3 inches diameter stainless steel platform that is removable for easy cleaning. The large 7 segment LCD display with backlit allows for easy viewing is even low lighting conditions. If you look at the scale's display you will notice 5 diagonal line printed on the screen. Since "e" and "d" are not the same value the last digit of the display is boxed as per Legal for trade requirements. The "boxed markings" can not be removed and does slightly obscure your ability to read the last decimal.
You have a five (5) button tactile keypad with positive click so you really know the key was pressed. If you have shopped around for a new scale you might notice many now have touchscreens. Problem with touchscreens is they don't always work well if you have gloves on or your fingers are wet. Tactile keypads don't have any working issues. If you open the manual on page 3 each key function is explained and the instruction manual is clearly written and easy to understand unlike those scales made in China, Switzerland or even Germany that are very hard to understand and follow
