Gun and ammo re-loaders dream scale is here. You get 1882 grains and the balance increments in 0.02 grain intervals. Unlike those low cost strain gauge scales (Ohaus SPX123, Acculab VIC123, Sartorius AY123, A&D EJ123 or Denver MXX123) the FX120i has a Super Hybrid Sensor weigh cell - almost like magnetic force restoration, so your reading won't creep and drift all over the place (see video). The FX120i from AND Weighing offers 122g with one milligram readability.
If you are a ammo reloader for competition benchrest shooting and want every round loaded to the kernel the A&D FX120i will NOT work and you'll need to spend a more money for the Sartorius Entris64-1S. See our video below were we demonstrate with a Entris323-1S milligram balance that all you can expect is ± 2 kernels with a milligram scale. People reloading pistol and air rifles and shooting less than 300 yards typically buy a milligram force restoration balance like the FX-120i or Sartorius Entris323-1s, but if you are shooting over 300 yards save your money and buy the Sartorius Entris64-1S.
A&D has build an amazing low cost magnetic force restoration balance that performs lightening fast using their Super Hybrid Sensor technology. This patented weigh cell provides quick stabilization speed with accurate weighing result in 1 second resulting in better productivity. The compact size and small footprint is something no other competitor brand can offer.
The vacuum fluorescent display enables easy-to-read weighing results even in poor lighting conditions.
The FXi Series comes standard with RS-232C interface for bi-directional communication with a PC, printer or other peripheral devices. When purchased with the optional AD-8121B printer you'll be GLP/GMP/GCP/ISO Compliant. In accordance with GLP and LIMS regulations, the balance ID number and calibration data can be printed out using A&D AD-8121B or a PC.
FX-i meets EMC regulations and is immune to the effects of electromagnetic fields of up to 10V/m
All FX-i balances are backed with a 5 years manufacturer warranty making it the longest manufacturer warranty in the industry for a high quality lab balance.
Many people haven't heard of A&D Weighing but they are the third largest manufacturer of laboratory balances and scales in the world. Corporate headquarters are based in Japan but US offices in California and Georgia.
Gun and ammo reloaders really need to watch the video above. See the Sartorius Entris64-1S in action. Professional shooters all over the world are learning to forget those low cost strain gauge scales that don’t work (see this video to see the difference). See how the RCBS10-10 beam scale can not even sense the weight of a kernel of powder. Watch the Omega Powder Trickler drop one kernel at a time. A kernel of Hogdgon H4350 powder weighs between 0.020 - 0.030 grains and the Sartorius Entris64-1S increments in 0.002gn. If you are tired of all the headaches using digital scales in the past it is time for you to buy a real balance that can weigh correctly.
Purchasing a scale with readability to one (1) milligram like the AND Weighing FX120i, FX200i, FX300i or FX500i is NOT accurate enough to weigh to the kernel of powder.
In the video above we use a Sartorius Entris313-1S milligram balance weighs to 0.02 grains. The Entris313-1S is a magnetic force restoration balance made in Germany and performs even better than the AND Weighing FX120i. The AND FX120i is made in Korea and is a hybrid - a cross between a stain gauge and a magnetic force restoration balance. So the AND FX120i is not 100% a magnetic force restoration balance, but it is much better than those low cost strain gauge loadcell scales like the Ohaus SPX123, Acculab VIC123, Sartorius AY123, AND EJ123 or Denver MXX123
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to buying the FX-i NTEP digital balances and hopefully the video above will clear those issues up do you don't purchase the wrong balance.
In the video above we use the FX-300iN and what is covered is applicable to all the FX-iN models which includes the FX120iN. FX200iN, FX300iN, FX1200iN, FX2000iN and FX3000iN. So if you read carefully you noticed all the model numbers ended with the letter "N" which designate NTEP Approved or Legal for Trade for the AND FX-i Series. Many people really don't see any difference between the FX-300iN and the FX-300i, but there is. If you require a legal for trade weighing device especially for commercial weighing and you ordered the non-NTEP version you will have problems. As you can guess the FX-iN NTEP Approved models costs more than the FX-i Non-NTEP models.
