Adam Equipment Highland HCB302 portable digital scale is truly a unique digital scale rattling the scales industry and having other scale manufacturers running. Highlander offers so many features, value at an affordable price. Adam's HCB302 offers 300 grams weighing capacity with readability to 0.01 gram. What makes the Adam Highland so unique is the scale comes with both the RS-232 and USB interface as standard equipment. Competitor models like the Ohaus Scout, A&D EJ Series, Acculab Vicon and Sartorius AY scales gouge you by making you purchase their optional RS-232 or USB module for $79 or more. You have to pick either RS-232 or USB with the competition but with Highlander you get BOTH RS-232 and USB interfaces. To make things better the HCB302 comes with both the RS-232 and USB cable. One thing the HCB doesn't come with is the data communication software but you can buy AdamDU data collection software or WinWedge balance communication software.
Adam HCB302 also has HandiCal™ - mechanical internal calibration with built in mass can be locked so only you calibrate the scale when you want to. The built in weight allows for quick and easy calibrations allowing you more time for weighing tasks. HandiCal™ internal calibration weight provides reliable readings time after time.
Adam Equipment’s Highland digital scales have what it takes for basic lab work, field use and various industrial applications. They feature multiple weighing units, RS-232 and USB interfaces, rechargeable battery pack and AC operation, capacity tracker, adjustable feet and level, lock down and more. Density and specific gravity determination are easy with the below balance weighing feature, and the removable draft shield eliminates wind disturbances outdoors or in drafty environments.

If you are a jewelry store, pawn shop or a medical marijuana dispensary and were told by a Weights & Measures Inspector that you need a Legal for Trade Class II Scale the Adam HCB302 is NOT Legal for Trade and we recommend you purchase the Mettler Toledo JL602-GE and AND Weighing EK610J are Class II Approved Legal for Trade NTEP weighing devices.
