Ohaus Scout SJX1502 is brand new as of May 2016 and in stock ready to ship today. This NTEP Approved 15000d Class II Scale 0.01 grams increments and a maximum capacity of 1500 grams. The "d"(value of scale division) is 0.01 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 0.1 grams. This electronic scale meets the requirements as a Class II weighing device defined in Handbook 44. All this information can be verified by downloading the CofC # 16-015 so you can printout this certificate to check with your Weights & Measurements Inspector if they will allow you to use the SJX1502 for your particular weighing application.
The scale's low profile dimensions are 8.8 x 8.0 x 3.5 inches and offers a large 6.7 x 5.5 inch trapezoid weighing platform. Easy-to-use four-button operation and operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included) for complete portability.
Features include ABS housing, stainless steel pan, weigh below hook, transportation lock, manual calibration lock switch, security slot, adjustable leveling feet, illuminated up-front level indicator. Stability indicator, stackable design with optional stacking & storage cover, mechanical and software overload/underload protection, low battery indicator, auto shut-off and auto tare. Span calibration mass is NOT included but can be purchased separately. We offer a large selection of calibration weights available at an additional cost. The span calibration for the SJX1502N/E requires 1500 grams so you would need to purchase a 1kg and 500g calibration weight.
Select from a large choice of weight units including grams, pennyweight, ounce, troy ounce and several other weigh modes. There are also addition weighing functions when the scale is set in Non-NTEP mode that includes Parts Counting, Percent Weighing, Check Weighing, Totalization, Density Determination, Display Hold.
After decades of manufacturing the Scout Series Ohaus has finally introduced a Legal-for-Trade Ohaus Scout model that the jewelry industry is going to love. Over 20 years ago Ohaus created the Ohaus C305 which was the hallmark scale found in just about every jewelry store across the USA. Then the C305 was retired and replaced with the Scout, then Scout II, then Scout Pro, but none of these scales were Legal for Trade for commercial weighing application. We can now say it took decades but Ohaus has finally got a NTEP Approved Scout digital scale that is approved for general purpose weighing, retail jewelry weighing/precious metal weighing, weighing of grain in commercial and USDA/GIPSA applications.
The Scout SJX Series is equipped with superior overload protection, large backlit display, fast stabilization time, multiple weighing units, application modes and connectivity options, these slim balances offer a truly user-friendly weighing experience.
If you downloading the CofC # 16-015 and look in the "Standard Features and Options" section you will see the Ohaus Scout SJX1502 uses a Mettler Toledo 30254252 strain gauge load cell. Equipped with superior weighing technology from this Mettler load cell it delivers fast repeatable, reliable weighing results with a stabilization time as fast as 1 second resulting in quick results and increased efficiency.
The superior mechanical overload protection system of the Scout is comprised of a high-strength stainless steel pan and an impact-resistant plastic pan support. This enables the balance to safely withstand loads up to 10 times its rated capacity.
Select from multiple connectivity options available for data logging and communication. Ohaus offers expanded connectivity options including RS232, USB Host, USB Device, Ethernet and Bluetooth module making the Ohaus Scout SJX the most versatile portable digital scale on the market today for data logging and communications.
The large backlit LCD provides operators a clear view of their weighing results. The optional auxiliary display kit (Ohaus part # 30269019) is an affordable solution for those states specified by Weights & Measures Inspectors to have a secondary display so the customer can see in real time. Typical this is referred to as "Direct Sales" - both buyer & seller are present and the scale needs to be positioned in such a way that the scale is in full view and the scale display can easily be read by both parties. Always check with your local Weights & Measures Inspectors for exactly all the requirements you must meet since some inspectors follow the rule exactly while other inspectors are very lenient.
To seal the device, a wire security seal may be threaded through tabs in a sliding cover and the base housing on the bottom of the scale. Alternately, a destructible sealing label may be affixed to the sliding cover and the base housing. When the sliding cover is sealed in the locked position, access to the calibration switch inside the housing is prevented. Remote calibration and configuration are also blocked when the device is sealed.
The Ohaus SJX Scales also feature adjustable feet and level bubble to help level your digital scale to provide the most accurate weighing results.
Watch as we unbox the SJX1502N/E Class II Legal for Trade digital scale, demonstration, and much more.
In the youtube video above we compare the A&D EK1200i, Ohaus Scout SJX1502 & Citizen CZ1200. All 3 models are NTEP Approved Class 2 weighing devices. The A&D EK1200i and Citizen CZ1200 have a maximum weighing capacity of 1200 grams and increments in 0.1 grams. The Ohaus Scout SJX1502N/E has a maximum weighing capacity of 1500 grams and the "d"(value of scale division) is 0.01 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 0.1 grams. You'll notice the last digit is boxed on the Ohaus scale.
Watch how to Calibrate the Ohaus Scout SJX1502NE digtal scale. We perform a 2 point span calibration. A span calibration resets the scale’s weighing range using two weight values: zero and a weight value at or near the digital scale’s capacity. We also demonstrate linearity calibration uses a 3 point calibration. Linearity calibration minimizes deviation between actual and displayed weights within the scale’s weighing range. Three weight values are used: zero, a weight value within the scale's weighing range which is set to 1000g, and a weight value at or near the balance’s specified capacity which is preset at 1500g.
