The Ohaus SP4001 IS BEING DISCONTINUED and Ohaus is halting shipping the SP4001 effective December 30, 2015. We can accept orders up to 12/29/2015. Don't worry there is a replacement and it is the brand new Ohaus Scout SPX6201 and we would recommend you delay your purchase until January 4, 2016, since the Scout SPX6201 is a much better digital scale. Once 2016 arrives all information displayed herein is for archival and support purposes only. The information on this web page is for reference only since again Ohaus is ending the sale of the Scout SP4001 starting 2016. See the entire Ohaus Scout SPX line HERE.
Ohaus Scout Pro SP4001 offers 4000g weighing capacity with readability to 0.1 grams.
Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout Pro continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout and Scout II products. Featuring easy-to-use two-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, multiple weighing units and the option of either RS232 or USB connectivity (the interface is a $107 optional accessory) the Scout Pro is the portable balance for you!

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SP4001US is the A&D EJ4100 offering a similar design and the ability to purchase either the RS-232 or USB module if you want to send weighing results to a computer. A&D offers WinCT data communication software to download free while Ohaus offers no free software. In addition, the A&D EJ digital scales are backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus has only a 2 year warranty. Schools are always calling us asking which scale offers the longer warranty and the 5 year warranty is something they really like. The EJ4100 is sold for less than the Ohaus SP4001US and many science teachers really like this because of their limited science equipment funding budget.
If price is absolutely the #1 issue and you are in search of the lowest cost 0.1g digital scales then we have a couple of other digital scales that are made in China. These gram scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SP4001, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified digital portable scale, with less features we recommend the Myweigh's i5500 (5500g x 0.1g) or EPB-6K Electronic Scale (6,000g x 0.1g) that are priced less than the Ohaus SP4001. Selecting any of these digital scales you can get much more weighing capacity for less money.
