The information below is for reference only for those people researching the specification if they already own this jeweler's carat balance
. Mettler has introduced a complete new precious carat balances and the replacement model is the Mettler Toledo JS703C/A carat scale

Mettler-Toledo JB703-L-C/A is legal for trade, also known as "NTEP approval" for weighing in either carats or grams weighing modes. The Mettler balance model JB703-L-C/A features external calibration and includes the 100 gram external calibration weight. If you prefer automatic internal calibration we recommend you look at the JB703-C/A-F
since it offers the same specifications, except features internal calibration that automatically recalibrates the electronic balance when temperature changes are enough to affect precision digital electronic balance's accuracy.
When operating in Non-NTEP mode the Mettler's JB703-L-C/A has a weighing capacity of 140 grams and increments in 0.001 gram divisions. This is an extremely affordable milligram balance that comes with the external 100 gram calibration mass, RS-232 interface, and 3 door glass draftshield for stable and accurate weighing results.
Weights & Measures Inspectors require the accuracy of all the commercial weighing and measuring equipment used for serving consumers and businesses be Legal for Trade. Some have a requirement saying a scale is suitable for its intended use if the minimum load which will be weighed on it is 50 measurement divisions or more. A scale whose smallest division is 0.001 carat is suitable for minimum loads of 0.05 carats. The Mettler Toledo JB703-L-CA fits the requirement since the balance increments in 0.001 carat divisions.
