The Mettler Toledo PB303-S has been discontinued and no longer in production. We have NO remaining stock, parts or accessories for the Mettler PB Series precision 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 JS1603C/A balance
. The Mettler JS1603 has many more added features like battery powered or AC Adapter, greater application modes including statistics and diagnostics. The Mettler-Toledo JS1603 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 PB303 does not come with the great feature.
Mettler Toledo JS1603C/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 JS1603 balance features automatic internal calibration, ensuring accurate weight readings even in temperature changing environments.
Again the information below on the Mettler PB303 milligram laboratory weighing balance is for reference only.
PB303-S milligram balance from Mettler Toledo features a 310 gram maximum weighing capacity that increments in 0.001 gram intervals. Percent weighing, parts counting, and dynamic weighing functions are all supported by Mettler Toledo's PB series product line.
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 PB303-S we suggest you review the Sartorius Entris423-1S. Sartorius Entris423-1S milligram balances weigh 420 grams in 0.001 gram increments, while Mettler Toledo's PB303-S only weighs up to 310 grams. If you would like to have more capacity and spend less money, consider the Sartorius Entris 423-1S milligram lab balance.
PB303-S balances feature internal calibration, which drives the price of balances up significantly. External calibration is less expensive and is truly the only way to properly calibrate a balance. You can read more about the benefits of external calibration over internal calibration here.
