Acculab VIC2mg [210g x 0.005g] operates on AC Adapter ONLY, features a 4 inch diameter stainless steel weighing pan with round glass draft ring and comes with the calibration mass. Built in Arvada, Colorado and backed with a 2-year parts and labor limited factory warranty!
The Acculab VIC-2mg is a low cost 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 do drift much more due to temperature variations caused by excitation energy used with a loadcell strain gauge weigh sensor. You do get better performance, linearity and repeatability with an electromagnetic weigh sensor like those found in the Acculab ALC-320.3
or Sartorius GC2502
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 VIC2mg might be your best choice.
The new VICON series 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. The new models feature a flip-down protective cover that is removable, stainless steel pan and back-lit display.
Standard Features & Benefits include:Exceptional accuracy and performance Protective flip-down and removable plastic cover for shipping protection and allows stackable storage Integrated 200 gram external calibration weight and below underhook Unique rugged, durable design for all applications Applications include: Counting, Percent Weighing, Totaling, Display Hold, Specific Gravity, Mass unit conversion 14 Mass unit conversions (g, oz, lbs, lbs:oz, dwt, ozt, grains, Newton, carats, Taels HK/Taiwan/Singapore/China, user defined) Optional RS-232 or USB interface kit (field installable) Parts counting with selectable reference sample AC adapter power (battery operation is not available) External "one button" calibration with 3 weight options Lock down capability Large LCD display with back-lit Two year manufacturer warranty
Before you decide to purchase an Acculab VIC-2mg milligram balance we suggest you review the Sartorius ED623S. Acculab's VIC-2mg milligram balance only weighs up to 200 g x 0.005 mg, while ED623S balances feature a weighing capacity of 620 g x 0.001 g.
Acculab VIC-2mg is a nice low cost milligram balance, however the ED623S from Sartorius offers more than double the capacity, and is built to last. Rather than using strain gauge technology which can wear out over time, ED623S features a unique robotically etched monolithic weigh cell ensuring long-term, high accuracy and minimizes the effects of temperature drifts. Sartorius ED623S balances should be considered if you would like a faster, stronger built balance, standard RS232 interface, and more than double the weighing capacity.
