FX200i from AND Weighing offers 220g with one milligram readability. For the gun and ammo re-loaders you get 3395 grains and the balance increments in 0.02 grain intervals. Unlike those low cost strain gauge scales (Ohaus SPX223, Acculab VIC303, Sartorius AY303, A&D EJ303 or Denver MXX123) the FX200i has a Super Hybrid Sensor weigh cell - almost like magnetic force restoration, so your reading won't creep and drift all over the place (see video).
If you are a ammo reloader for competition benchrest shooting and want every round loaded to the kernel the A&D FX200i will NOT work and you'll need to spend a more money for the Sartorius Entris64-1S. See our video below as we demonstrate the Entris323-1S milligram balance that all you can expect is ± 2 kernels with a milligram scale. People reloading pistol and air rifles and shooting less than 300 yards typically buy a milligram force restoration balance like the FX-200i or Sartorius Entris323-1s, but if you are shooting over 300 yards save your money and buy the Sartorius Entris64-1S.
A&D has build an amazing low cost magnetic force restoration balance that performs lightening fast using their Super Hybrid Sensor technology. This patented weigh cell provides quick stabilization speed with accurate weighing result in 1 second resulting in better productivity. The compact size and small footprint is something no other competitor brand can offer.
The vacuum fluorescent display enables easy-to-read weighing results even in poor lighting conditions.
The FXi Series comes standard with RS-232C interface for bi-directional communication with a PC, printer or other peripheral devices. When purchased with the optional AD-8121B printer you'll be GLP/GMP/GCP/ISO Compliant. In accordance with GLP and LIMS regulations, the balance ID number and calibration data can be printed out using A&D AD-8121B or a PC.
FX-i meets EMC regulations and is immune to the effects of electromagnetic fields of up to 10V/m
All FX-i balances are backed with a 5 years manufacturer warranty making it the longest manufacturer warranty in the industry for a high quality lab balance.
Never heard of A&D? A&D is currently the world's third largest manufacturer of laboratory and industrial balances with 20% of the world market share. Established in 1977, A&D Company, Ltd. has grown from developing digital-to-analog converters for companies such as Nippon Telegraph & Telephone, to becoming a world class producer of advanced measuring equipment for medicine, science and industry. A&D established itself as a multinational corporation, with offices in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, Korea, Taiwan and Russia, and as a world leader in measurement equipment. The company's competitive edge is the direct result of its ability to leverage strong engineering and manufacturing capabilities, while incorporating highly accurate analog and digital technologies into broad product lines focused to provide customers with the greatest value.
High performance and quality is shown with a 5 year manufacturer warranty. Review the manufacturer warranty from other manufacturer's and you'll see their warranty is a lot less. Plus if you ever need repair A&D Weighing has two facilities in the USA located in Georgia and California for fast turn around.
Gun and ammo reloaders really need to watch the video above. See the Sartorius Entris64-1S in action. Professional shooters all over the world are learning to forget those low cost strain gauge scales that don’t work (see this video to see the difference). See how the RCBS10-10 beam scale can not even sense the weight of a kernel of powder. Watch the Omega Powder Trickler drop one kernel at a time. A kernel of Hogdgon H4350 powder weighs between 0.020 - 0.030 grains and the Sartorius Entris64-1S increments in 0.002gn. If you are tired of all the headaches using digital scales in the past it is time for you to buy a real balance that can weigh correctly.
Purchasing a scale with readability to one (1) milligram like the AND Weighing FX120i, FX200i, FX300i or FX500i is NOT accurate enough to weigh to the kernel of powder.
In the video above we use a Sartorius Entris313-1S milligram balance weighs to 0.02 grains. The Entris313-1S is a magnetic force restoration balance made in Germany and performs even better than the AND Weighing FX200i. The AND FX200i is made in Korea and is a hybrid - a cross between a stain gauge and a magnetic force restoration balance. So the AND FX200i is not 100% a magnetic force restoration balance, but it is much better than those low cost strain gauge loadcell scales like the Ohaus SPX123, Acculab VIC123, Sartorius AY123, AND EJ123 or Denver MXX123
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to buying the FX-i NTEP digital balances and hopefully the video above will clear those issues up do you don't purchase the wrong balance.
In the video above we use the FX-300iN and what is covered is applicable to all the FX-iN models which includes the FX120iN. FX200iN, FX300iN, FX1200iN, FX2000iN and FX3000iN. So if you read carefully you noticed all the model numbers ended with the letter "N" which designate NTEP Approved or Legal for Trade for the AND FX-i Series. Many people really don't see any difference between the FX-300iN and the FX-300i, but there is. If you require a legal for trade weighing device especially for commercial weighing and you ordered the non-NTEP version you will have problems. As you can guess the FX-iN NTEP Approved models costs more than the FX-i Non-NTEP models.
