The Electronic Precision Balance (EPB-10K) offers 10,000 gram weighing capacity with readability to 0.1 grams at an astonishing affordable price.  Yes it is a generic brand direct from Asia, but this is where 99% of the portable electronic scales are made nowadays.  Asia has advanced dramatically over the years in technology and quality.  We decided to market this generic brand since we believe in the motto "if you can't tell the difference why pay the difference".  If you take a closer look at other brands like the [a href="http://balance.balances.com/scales/1203"]Ohaus Scout[/a] they are made in China.  Sure, Ohaus does a great marketing job of their product and package it fancier, but all that extra costs are passed on to the consumer - a.k.a. YOU.

In today's world, building a strain gauge scale is not rocket science that only a few companies have the skills to engineering and build.  Smaller independent Asian companies are building fabulous quality strain gauge scales and even including extra features at no additional cost , while major brands have.  Case in point, the [a href="http://balance.balances.com/scales/271"]Ohaus Scout[/a] requires you to purchase the optional RS-232 module if you want to connect your scale to a computer, while it is standard on the EPB-10K. 

Another feature the EPB-10K offers that few electronic scales on the market offers today in user selectable calibration.  Most other brands require you to use a specific calibration mass like 5 kilograms for a scale that weighs up to 6kg.  Now, if you have a 3 kilogram calibration weight you can't do nothing with it using the major brand scales.  Well, with the EPB-10K you can set the calibration to whatever weight you want.  If you have a calibration mass that is 7000g, 7500g, 8010g even 926g grams you can configure any specific calibration weight to perform the calibration.  Please note, we always recommend you calibrate any scale with 75% or greater of the weighing capacity of the scale for the best calibration.

Okay now getting back EPB-10K the scale offers 10,000g x 0.1g, die cast aluminum sub-platter, large 6.7" x 7.0” stainless steel weigh platform, Linearity +/- 0.2g, 100,000 divisions with 1,300,000 internal resolution, 24 bit high speed A/D converter and an HBM C3 load cell.  Yes it is a lot of technical jargon but if you are a scale expert it all means this is one hell of a scale for an extremely affordable price.

It is also very important to have very good Analog to Digital processors for scales, the 24 bit AD is the fastest and it has over 1.3million internal resolutions. Many low cost high resolution balances have low internal resolutions of below 500,000 counts. Other than the zero or drift tracking software, the balance will also need to see a very high internal resolution to be able to track the internal weight drift after weight is placed on the balance for 1 minute. In the [a href="https://youtu.be/N9EnPb9YX_I" target="_blank"]YouTube video[/a] above we give a general overview of the Electronic Precision Balance EPB Series weighing functions & features. In the [a href="https://youtu.be/0Oik1bSsZLg" target="_blank"]YouTube video[/a] above shows you how easy calibration is performed. Calibration weights are NOT included with the scale and must be purchased SEPARATELY.
The EPB is one of the few scales on the market that allows you to use any size calibration weight within the weighing range of the digital scale. We always recommend you calibrate the scale with a weight at least 50% of the weighing capacity for accurate weighing results over the full weighing range. So for the EPB10K you should use at least a 5kg weight, for the EPB6K at least 3kg and EPB3K at least 1500g, but if all you have was a 1kg mass you could calibration the EBP scale. In the [a href="https://youtu.be/ZEg3bBSB5qI" target="_blank"]YouTube video[/a] above shows you how configuring the Electronic Precision Balance (EPB). We show you how to disable the Auto Shut-Off, the options for the backlight and to turn ON and OFF the annunciator. In the [a href="https://youtu.be/PwIGYbs1hQk" target="_blank"]YouTube video[/a] above shows you how parts counting works for the Electronic Precision Balance (EPB). We count paperclips and blister packs using an oversized counter.
