Mettler Toledo's JL602-G/LA01 offers 610 gram weighing capacity with readability to 0.01g and comes standard with the RS-232 interface
. The RS-232 can be used to connect your Mettler JL602 to the optional Mettler remote display, Mettler printer, or computer (data acquisition software like Winwedge
and the RS-232 cable are extra). If you plan selling jewelry directly to customers in your store, then you are required by many weights and measures inspectors to have a secondary display that the customer can see the weight in real time. Example, if you've ever bought meat from a grocery store, you know that when the butcher weighs out the meat, you and the butcher both have separate displays as the meat is weighed. By having 2 display the scale is legal for direct sales. The optional remote display with backlight has a cable length 6 feet and is an additional $99.00.

The biggest selling point for the Mettler Toledo's JL602-G/LA01 other than the prominent Mettler-Toledo name is this scale operates on either AC Adapter of four (4) AA batteries. We get numerous complaints from customers that buy the A&D EK-1200i
since the A&D does not run off of standard batteries but instead you must buy A&D special NiMH Battery Pack for an addition $195.00. Yep it is crazy in a day when you can go buy 4 - AA NiMH rechargeable batteries at Walmart for under $20 A&D designs their scale so you can only use their $195 NiMH Battery Pack
