This counting scale is designed for counting small parts 0.5 grams or heavier. If you took a $1 bill out of your wallet and cut the dollar bill into 2 equal pieces the FC1000i is sensitive enough to count each one of the pieces. There is a catch to all this sensitivity and that is you're limited in total weighing capacity that you could ever have on the weighing pan and that is 1000 gram or 2 pounds. So the FC1000i isn't the correct selection for counting large hardware like nuts and bolts used to put together shelving since many times 10, 50, 75, or 100 pieces would weigh over 2 pound.
You must carefully select the correct model counting scale for your specific application. You also want to select the correct model that can count as many various size/weight parts so you can get maximum usage from your counting scale. Scale manufacturers make many different models all having varying sensitivity to cover the unlimited different part people want to count. Just like car manufacturer's don't make just 3 different automobiles to meet all the transportation need of the world, scale manufacturers don't make 3 different counting scale to cover any part a person would ever want to count. If you're not sure call us at 978-521-7095 and a counting scale specialist will assist you in the proper selection. We'll ask you immediate "what is the smallest part that you want to count" so we can determine the sensitivity needed.. We recommend whatever the smallest part weighs, you want a counting scale with 5 times the readability. If your part weighs 0.5 g (0.1g, readability of the FC-1000i multiplied by 5 equals 0.5g) or greater you'll be able to accurately count the parts with the FC1000i..
If 70 or 90% of the parts you're counting are in the range of 1/2 a gram then the FC1000i is probably your best selection. If you have a few parts 4 to 10 grams in weight then you'll be limited to only counting out 100 pieces (100 pieces x 10g = 1000g) at a time to prevent overloading and damaging the counting scale. To get a better understand how counting scales work read the detailed write-up we did on the AdamLab CBC Series Counting Scales.
