We made a special purchase on the EK6100J that has a maximum weighing capacity of 6000 grams and increments in 0.1 gram graduations with a 5.2 x 6.7 inch rectangular weighing platform. Some people might ask how do we sell so cheap. We buy in huge volume and as an Authorized A&D Weighing Distributor the manufacturer comes to us to move their excessive inventory. We price the scale at ridiculous low prices to move the scales since it is only a matter of time before our phone rings asking us to buy more overstock.
These are brand new units and a great alternative to the Mettler Toledo JL6001-GE, Ohaus Scout SP6001 or Scout SPX6201. We have priced the EK6100J so aggressively that it is cheaper to buy the EK6100J than the EK3000i, EK4100i, and EK6100i.
What is the difference between the EK-6100J verses the EK-6100i? Notice the last character in the model name is "J" verses "i"). The EK-6100i (non-NTEP) while the EK6100J is Legal For Trade. Legal-for-Trade balances typically cost a lot more than "Not Legal for Trade" since extensive testing is required to achieve a Certificate of Conformance 06-054.
To attain the covenant status of legal for trade the EK-6100j is tested with several increasing/decreasing load and shift tests and these test occur over a temperature range of 41°F to 95°F. A load of approximately one-half capacity is applied to the EJ6100J over 100,000 times and must weigh with the testing tolerances.
EK6100J NTEP approved Class II Legal For Trade scale's "d"(value of scale division) is 0.1 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 1 grams. The balance meets the requirements as a Class II weighing device defined in Handbook 44. All this information can be verified by downloading the CofC # 06-054 so you can printout this certificate to check with your Weights & Measurements Inspector if they will allow you to use the EK6100J for your particular weighing application.
Many people purchasing the EK-6100J might not need legal for trade status and want to remind people this is a great scale designed for manufacturing, industrial, laboratory,classroom applications. The fast display update rate is ideal for mixing of flavors and spices as well as chemical ingredients. Companies packaging products by weight can use the EK6100J for quality control and compliance to verify their package contains the correct weight denoted on the packaging.
The EK6100J digital scale can be used for material testing to adhere to state specific guidelines and ASTM specifications. Whether you are performing sieve analysis of fine and coarse aggregates to total moisture content of aggregate by drying.
There is also an optional underhook for specific gravity determination below balance weighing used for weighing concrete cores. Always refer to the particular AASHTO test method and verify your sample size will not exceed 6000 gram capacity and requires resolution to 0.1 grams then EJ6100J meets the requirements.
The EK6100j comes standard with RS-232C interface at no additional cost. Plus you can download a free copy of the A&D WinCt balance communication software if you plan on exporting weighing results to your computer. If your computer only has a USB port then be sure to purchase the optional USB to 9 pin RS-232 converter.
Need to print weighing results? Using the RS232 interface connected to the optional A&D AD-8121B impact dot matrix printer featuring full range of statistical functions, interval printing with built-in clock/timer function to meet most GLP/GMP requirements.
The compact size and small footprint saves valuable laboratory bench space and is something very few scale companies offer.
When the EK-6100J digital balance is first installed it should be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. We offer a full line of optional calibration weights including low cost 5kg Class 6 with no cert or Class 2 5000g calibration weight for the EK6100J. Every location in the world is positioned differently to "magnetic north" and therefore the acceleration of gravity is slightly different.
Additional applications for the EK6100J would be for weighing large quantities of gold and silver - 50 ounces and need an affordable priced legal for trade scale. If you watch the popular Discovery Channel "Gold Rush" in Season 6 you'll see Todd Hoffman, Parker Schnabel and Tony Beets team using an A&D EK Series digital scale to weigh their gold after many clean outs on the show.
