Ohaus Pioneer Plus PA4201 precision scale weighs up to 4200 grams with 0.1 gram readability. Additional weighing applications include weighing, parts counting, percent weighing, density determination and dynamic weighing applications. The new Pioneer Plus Series balances combine the latest weigh sensor technology (MFR magnetic force restoration) housed in a solid metal base housing.
Pioneer's compact design and small footprint allows the balance to easily fit into small areas of laboratory benches without overcrowding the workspace. The up-front level indicator is located right next to the display and allows the user to quickly make sure the balance is level prior to each use.
Ohaus Pioneer Plus is the economical choice for everyday weighing. Targeted for the educational market or any laboratory that does not need advanced weighing function and just needs a good balance that is simple to use and weighs accurately. Ohaus understands not everyone is looking for a fancy touch screen display and other bells and whistles found in the Ohaus Explorer Pro and Adventurer AX, but instead an affordable balance for basic weighing and the Pioneer Plus is the answer.
The Pioneer Plus PA4201 replaces the Ohaus Pioneer PA4101 and offers new features like a backlight display and built-in weigh below with density determination function allowing you to suspend an item below the balance to calculate specific gravity.
All Pioneer Plus Precision Balances are constructed with a metal base, ABS top housing, stainless steel pan, up-front level indicator security bracket, calibration lock, user selectable communication and printing settings, auto standby, mechanical and software overload protection and replaceable in-use cover.
Pioneer Plus Balances models 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.
Ohaus Pioneer digital scales were designed for basic routine weighing in a variety of laboratory, industrial and education applications. With the right combination of performance and features, the Ohaus Pioneer offers uncomplicated performance for all your basic weighing needs.
When the Ohaus PA4201 balance is first installed, or is moved to another location, the weighing balance must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. The Ohaus PA4201 requires the purchase of a optional external 4kg calibration weight to perform calibration. We always recommend that you purchase the calibration weight when you purchase the digital balance. You can learn more about calibration weights, class weights and the weight tolerances at calibrationweight.com
Is the Ohaus PA4201 too expensive for your budget? We also offer the Ohaus SP4001, A&D EJ4100 (4100g x 0.1g), Mettler Toledo JL6001 GLA01 Scale or EK4100i priced substantially less than the Ohaus PA4201 digital scale.
Looking for a balance that comes standard with a USB interface? Be sure to see the Sartorius Practum 5101-1S or Quintix 5101-1S precision balance. These Sartorius models feature a touch screen user interface for easy balance configuration. Don't want to spend the money for the fancy touchscreen or USB interface but still want the Sartorius brand? Then be sure to see the Entris5201-1S. We have used all of the major brand laboratory balances and without a question Sartorius builds the best performing lab balance for speed and accuracy.
US government customers call us saying the must comply with the Buy American Act clause the only similar balances we offer to the PA4201 that are made in America would be the Scientech SG5000. 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.
Choose from 4 different tenth of a gram models in the Pioneer Plus series with either a capacity of 2200 grams or 4200 grams. You can review the complete line of Ohaus Pioneer Plus Balances HERE.
We understand purchasing an precision 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. Below are some videos of other precision balances we offer. The Sartorius Entris5201-1SUS that offers extreme value and spectacular weighing performance. When people ask what balance is the best engineered product delivering the most accurate results we always say BUY SARTORIUS.
In the video above we walk you through the menu configuration settings & how to enable or disable weighing applications. The factory default is "weigh" and the weight unit is set to grams only. Easily change this to "Unit" allowing you to toggle an additional 4 weighing units, "Count" for parts counting plus the ability to configure a desired reference sample quantity from 1 to 10, "Percent" for percent weighing proportional to a reference weight commonly used in formulation especially ink mixing, "Animal Weighing" for weighing live insects or small critters, or "Density" for density determination and specific gravity.
See how to configure the Sartorius Entris precision balance changing the factory default setting for the primary weigh unit of grams to pounds. We'll walk you through the steps so you can configure your Entris balance to toggle up to 4 additional different weight units
In the video above we offer a general overview of the Sartorius Entris precision lab balance. We highlight the features, functions and operation of the Sartorius Entris precision balance. See some of the available accessories for the Sartorius Entris like the optional data printer, RS232 cable, calibration weights and weighing below hook.
In the video below we show you the excellent eccentric loading characteristics of the Sartorius Entris Balances. See as a calibration weight is placed in the center of 4 quadrants on the platform how the Sartorius Entris measures the weight accurately. Not all digital balances weigh accurately and if you own a laboratory balance other than Sartorius we doubt it compares to the Sartorius Entris. If you own an older Sartorius balance or someone tries to give you a deal on a used or discontinued Sartorius balance just forget it and buy the Entris.
To test eccentric loading we place a weight on the center of the weighing platform and record the weight. Now place the same item in 45-degree directions (front left, front right, rear right, and rear left) and compared to the measurement at the center. Compare the weighing results and if you have eccentric errors it just might be time to retire that balance and purchase a new Sartorius Entris.
