We made a special purchase on the A&D EK610J which is Legal for Trade while the Ohaus SPX222 is NOT LFT. So take a look at the A&D EK-610J before you make your final selection. Best of all the EK-610J has greater weighing capacity (600g vs 220g) and a longer warranty than the Ohaus Scout SPX222 and will only cost you a little more money than the Scout SPX222.
Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout SPX continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout, Scout II and Scout Pro products. Featuring easy-to-use four-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, 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 weight is included with the Scout SPX222.

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SPX222 is the A&D EJ200 offering 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 Scout SPX222 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.
If price is absolutely the #1 issue and you are in search of the lowest cost 0.01g digital scales then we have a couple of other digital scales that are made in China - the Ohaus SPX222 is also made in China. These digital scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SPX222, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified digital portable balance, with less features we recommend My Weigh brand digital scales. My-Weigh ibalance 201 digital scale offers 200g x 0.01 grams or the EPB-602D with 600g x 0.01g at a much more affordable price.
Watch as we unbox the Ohaus Scout SJX1502N/E which has a maximum weighing capacity of 1500 grams and increments in 0.01 gram graduations. The SJX is targeted to the jewelry industry which is a very price sensitive market so Ohaus has a much lower list price on the SJX verses the Ohaus Scout SPX Series is sold to the lab market and is priced much higher. You can buy the SJX1502N/E for almost the same price as the SPX222 but instead of 200 gram capacity you can get 1500 gram weighing capacity.
