Ohaus Pioneer PA224 offers 220 grams weighing capacity and increments in 0.1 milligram divisions. The new Pioneer PA224 replaces the discontinued Ohaus PA214
. This analytical balance features a 3.5 inch diameter pan with an RS232 interface. The RS232 allows connection to an Ohaus printer or a computer. Sends Balance ID plus spaces for recording User ID, Project ID, time and date.
The PA224 Pioneer lab balance is designed for basic routine weighing in a variety of laboratory, industrial and education applications with the right combination of performance and features that delivers uncomplicated performance for all your basic weighing needs.
When the Ohaus PA224 balance is first installed, or is moved to another location, the lab balance must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. The Ohaus PA224 requires the purchase of a optional external 100g
or 200 gram calibration weight
to perform calibration. We always recommend that you purchase the calibration weight when you purchase the balance. You can learn more about calibration weights and the tolerances at calibrationweight.com
. If you want internal motorized calibration see the Ohaus Pioneer PA224C
Ohaus Pioneer PA224 features weighing, parts counting, percent weighing, animal weighing a density determination weighing functions. An optional density kit is available or use the built-in weigh below hook allowing you to suspend an item below the balance to calculate density/specific gravity.
All models are built on a solid metal diecast base and use a magnetic force restoration weigh sensor, not a cheap strain gauge that is prone to drifting with the numbers on the display moving even though you added nothing to the weighing platform. We get so many calls from end users saying they purchased some no name brand made and they hate their balance since it is a strain gauge. If you don't understand then watch this video HERE demonstrating a magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge scale
The large draftshield features sliding top and side doors. To address the ease of cleaning requirement often expressed by routine users, Pioneer's draftshield has been designed with easy to remove doors and panels. Disassembly takes just seconds and all components including the balance housing can be quickly wiped clean.
Periodic cleaning made easy helps avoid sample contamination and extends product life. In addition, a standard in-use cover provides added protection against accidental spillage and helps minimize the chance of damage to the display and keypad.
Should breakage occur, each replacement door or panel can be installed in seconds. A standard in-use cover provides added protection against accidental spillage.
Pioneer has been designed with an up-front level indicator, so that users can quickly ensure the balance is level prior to use. Selectable environmental settings to help adapt the balance to real life working conditions, Pioneer is designed with selectable environmental settings. When working in harsh environments, the balance can be adjusted to compensate for vibrations and other disturbances. Conversely, the balance can be adjusted for working in slow filling applications where sensitivity is a must.
Be sure to see the Scientech ZSA Series
featuring 80 to 210 gram with 0.1mg resolutions. When US government customers call us saying they must comply with the Buy American Act clause the only similar balance we offer to the PA224 that is made in America would be the Scientech ZSA210
. FAR Part 25.003 requirements state that domestic end products are preferred over foreign end products, and the Ohaus Pioneer is not made in the USA, but instead China.
See our most technologically advance weighing instrument we offer - the Sartorius Secura. Secura offers a simple touch screen technology with easy to read and understand I-cons. The Sartorius Secura224-1S allows you to enable SQmin and additional safety weighing features like the ability to program the minimum weight value so when you attempt to weigh samples below a set threshold the weight reading is displayed on screen in red. Built-in level verification, Password Protection, and memory tracking is also available.
The Ohaus Pioneer Series has been upgraded to the new Ohaus Pioneer Pro Series. The new Pioneer Pro has an expanded selection of 24 different models to choose from. Select an Ohaus lab balance according to your laboratory's specific weighing requirements. You can review all of the Ohaus Pioneer digital balances HERE
We understand purchasing an analytical balance
is a major capital expense and if you have any questions give us a call and one of our weighing experts can discuss your weighing application and get you the most affordable balance for your weighing needs.
Before purchasing any analytical balance, be sure you review the AND HR-250A designed with a removable, shatterproof breeze break with antistatic coating perfect for challenging weighing applications where contamination is a potential concern. Plus the small 8 x 12 inch footprint design saves you space. Finally, the AND HR-250A offers a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus PA224 is only 2 years.
Below are some videos of a new analytical balance Sartorius just introduced to the market that offers extreme value.
Sartorius Entris analytical balances display increments in 0.002 grains divisions. Long-range competitive shooters (600+ yards) always shoot for an edge over their rivals and one way is to shoot very uniform ammo. Weighing charges, bullets and primers to 0.002gn can make shot velocities more uniform within a shot string. Forget those inconsistent low cost strain gauge scales that weigh the same charge differently each time. If you want to win the competition you need every round to the exact kernel.
In the video above we will walk you through the steps to change the default factory setting of grams to grains. once you make these changes your balance will power up each time in the grains mode. In this demonstration we use the Entris224-1S, but the steps are the same for all Satorius Entris models.
In the video above we demonstrate the Sartorius Entris224-1S analytical balance and how easy calibration is when you purchase the optional calibration mass. The Satorius Entris 4 decimal place balances offer a large draftshield with 3 sliding doors. See the quick settling time as we place calibration weights
on the weighing platform. Get a better understanding of what each keypad does and how you can enter into the balance configuration menu to change the factory default setting to better meet your specific weighing requirements. The Sartorius Entris is easy to configure to optimize for your individual weighing application.
