Ohaus AV212 has been discontinued by Ohaus and no longer in production. The replacement model is the Ohaus Adventurer AX622/E. Information on this web page is for reference only for our past customer's that purchased this balance and want to review the specification. If you need assistance selecting an alternative model give us a call at 978-521-7095 and a balance expert can assist in alternative models.
Since its introduction, the Ohaus Adventurer Pro has continuously set new standards for versatility, performance and value in an affordable precision balance. Designed with a solid foundation of standard features customers have long appreciated, like an ergonomic leveling system, RS232 connectivity and GLP Data capabilities, the Adventurer Pro now offers a few additional extras created from direct customer feedback. All Ohaus Pro electronic balances can be purchased for an additional cost with internal calibration.
Ohaus Adventurer Pro AV212 Balance offers 210 grams weighing capacity and precision to 0.01 gram. The large 4.7" diameter weighing pan and ability to operate on either AC adapter or 4 AA batteries makes this a great all purpose portable precision scale.
Ohaus AV212 Adventurer Pro SmarText™ is Ohaus’ easy to use embedded balance software that utilizes text prompts to guide users through application use and balance setup. Delivered through a 2 line backlit LCD and clearly marked buttons, SmarText tells you what is going on and what you have to do next.
Utilizing the 2-line LCD, SmarText simultaneously displays weight and application specific information such as percent or count. For example, with one touch of the Function button, SmarText will display application reference information such as average piece weight (APW), while displaying a parts count in the weight display.
Additionally, Adventurer AV212 Pro has been designed with an up-front level indicator eliminating the need to look behind the balance during the leveling process. A quick glance at the up-front level indicator helps to ensure that the balance is level prior to each use. The AV212 portable balance also offers six application modes and can perform in 17 US and international weighing units (mg weigh mode not available).
Adventurer Pro is available in both analytical and precision configurations, in a variety of capacities. The Adventurer Pro line of precision balances offers capacities ranging from 51 x 0.001 grams to 8,100 x 0.1 grams. You can review all of the Ohaus Adventurer Pro digital balances HERE.
Before you make your final selection be sure to see the newA&D FX-1200i precision balance featuring 1220 grams with 0.01 grams resolutions. The Ohaus AV212 only has a 2 year limited manufacturer warranty the A&D FX1200i has a 5 year warranty. There are many other features that really stand out on the AND Weighing FX1200i like a smaller footprint saving you valuable lab bench space. The biggest difference we want to highlight is the AV212 weigh sensor is built using strain gauge technology. The strain gauge can give you good weighing results for weighing static loads, but can drift much more due to temperature variations caused by excitation energy used with a load cell strain gauge weigh sensor. You'll get better performance, linearity and repeatability with A&D's Super Hybrid Sensor weighing technology sensor found in the AND FX-1200i.
When US government customers call us saying the must comply with the Buy American Act clause the only similar balance we offer to the AV212 that are made in America would be the Scientech SL600. FAR Part 25.003 requirements state that domestic end products are preferred over foreign end products, and the Ohaus Adventurer is not made in the USA.
