We have NO remaining stock on the Acculab VIC-123. The information listed below on the VIC-123 is for reference only for those people researching the specification on a VIC123 scale they already own.
Acculab is owned by Sartorius and Sartorius Mechatronics decided to streamline the company brand name holdings and eliminate the Acculab brand. Acculab Vicon Series are now replaced by the Sartorius M-Prove Series
, but like the Vicons the M-Proved Series have excessive lead times of over 20 weeks until Sartorius can improve their production time.
Acculab is a victim of deleveraging and the brand Acculab has terminated production on December 31, 2010. Yes - Acculab DOES NOT EXIST in 2011 since Sartorius decided to shutdown the Acculab brand name. The Acculab VIC-123 was resurrected as the Sartorius M-Prove AY123
but these are not available since Sartorius is experiencing trouble in acquiring parts to build the scales and the lead time is over 20 weeks
. If you can't wait months for delivery we recommend you consider the following alternatives which are typically in stock.
If your budget requires you to spend under $300 then your only choice is a scale designed with strain gauge weighing technology
like the VIC123 and the equivalent would be the Adam HCB123
. Strain gauge sensors drift and although the display might increment in one milligram graduations they are not accurate to a milligram. To get away from a strain gauge load cell we recommend the more costly electro-magnetic force weigh cell
found in alternative milligram balances like the A&D FX-120i
or Scientech ZSP150
If you need additional help finding a digital milligram scale that is in stock give the experts a call at Precision Weighing Balances. The information listed below on the VIC-123 is for reference only for those people researching the specification on a scale they already own.
Hunters whether weighing bullets or arrowhead are raving over the VIC-123 since the digital scale increments in 0.02 grain intervals and unlike many of the scales found in the gun & ammo stores the Acculab works!!
Acculab VIC-123 [120g x 0.001g] operates AC Adapter ONLY, has a 4 inch diameter weighing pan with round glass draft ring, and the 100 gram calibration mass is included. Built in Arvada, Colorado and backed with a 2-year parts and labor limited factory warranty!
The Acculab VIC-123 is a low cost milligram scale since it's weigh cell is built using strain gauge technology
. The strain gauge can give you good weighing results for weighing static loads, but can drift much more due to temperature variations caused by excitation energy used with a load cell strain gauge weigh sensor. You'll get better performance, linearity and repeatability with an electromagnetic weigh sensor like those found in the A&D FX-120i
or Scientech ZSP150
but this weigh sensor design cost more money. If you're on a tight budget and your weighing results aren't for a super critical application then the Acculab VIC123 might be your best choice.
The Vicon scales are ideal balances for Industrial, Laboratories, Research, Educational, Specialty Weighing Applications and more. Whether weighing multiple samples with totaled results, formulating a color, counting, percent weighing, specific gravity, or under pan weighing, Acculab has the answer in VICON.
