Design, features, quality and price. Attributes we feel no other precision balance manufacturer can match when you compare the GF12K against the competitors models. This is a true high precision balance that meets IP-65 ratings for water and dust proof. Larger 10.6" x 8.3" weigh pan and 12,000 grams weighing capacity with readability to 0.1 gram. Yes - this means the balance increments in 0.1 gram interval all the way over the complete 12000 gram range.
Fast, Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS) gives you the ultimate in response speed - Just 1.5 Seconds! SHS combines the best of magnetic force restoration and single point parallelogram load cell technologies. If the time ever comes where the SHS needs repair, you just replace one of three parts - there is no need to replace the whole weigh sensor as is the case with higher priced, slower competitive models. This new, innovative sensor is a core technology certain to dominate in the 21st century. Made in Japan by A&D Weighing, a global manufacturer of high precision instrumentation, with facilities in Milpitas, California and Norcross, Georgia to back and support the 60 month manufacturer warranty.
Standard built-in RS-232 interface allows you to easily connect the balance to a PC with included WinCT software included with all A&D laboratory balances.
