The Mettler Toledo PL153-S has been discontinued and no longer in production. We have NO remaining stock, parts or accessories for the Mettler PL Series digital balances. The information below is for reference only for those people researching the specification if they already own the Mettler scale for archival and support purposes only.
The closest equivalent we offer in the Mettler Toledo brand would be the Mettler Toledo JS703C/A balance
The Mettler JS703 has many more added features like battery powered or AC Adapter, greater application modes including statistics and diagnostics. The Mettler-Toledo JS703 also comes with a new feature called "PC Direct" that lets you transfer weighing data to a PC without additional software, while the discontinued Mettler PL153 do not come with the great feature.
Mettler Toledo JS703C/A is legal for trade to one milligram ideal for pharmacy compounding or ideal for medical marijuana dispensaries when your Weight & Measures Inspector tells you must have an NTEP approval balance. This Mettler JS703 balance features automatic internal calibration, ensuring accurate weight readings even in temperature changing environments.
PB153-S mg balance offers 151 g x 0.001 g weight readings. Mettler Toledo's PB series features an array of features including parts counting, percent weighing, dynamic weighing, weigh-below hook, RS232 interface, and more!
Mettler Toledo's PB Series precision balances offer advanced weighing technology you can count on for precise weighing applications. Mettler Toledo offers 15 scales in the PB series to choose from depending on your weighing requirements. Each is equipped with FACT (Fully Automatic Calibration Technology), an internal calibration system for ensuring your balance is providing accurate readings. External calibration is also supported but requires an external calibration weight. Other features include RS232 interface, weigh-below balance hook, as well as shock and overload protection. Before you decide to purchase a Mettler Toledo PB153-S milligram balance we suggest you review the more affordable Sartorius Entris323-1S. Sartorius Entris 323-1S milligram balances weigh 320 grams in 0.001 gram increments, while Mettler Toledo's PB153-S only weighs up to 151 grams and costs more money. If you would like more capacity and a faster response time, consider the Sartorius Entris323 Mg balance.
Sartorius Entris Millgram balances do not feature internal calibration, however, we feel external calibration is better anyways. Learn more about the benefits of external calibration over internal calibration here.
