Ohaus Explorer EP4101 precision balance (4100g x 0.1g) can be purchased 3 ways - the standard Explorer EP4101 which has no internal calibration and is NOT Legal for Trade; the EP4101N which IS Legal for Trade with no internal calibration (check the box in the option section for Legal for Trade. The prefix "N" designate Legal for Trade); the EP4101CN which is the EP4101 with motorized internal calibration and IS Legal for Trade (check the box in the option section for Internal Calibration. The prefix "CN" designate Internal Calibration & Legal for Trade).
One design issue you should be aware of with the Explorer and Voyager Series outfitted with internal calibration when the balance is used in the non-NTEP mode is the inability to disable the use of internal calibration. The Ohaus line is the only balance we know of that does not allow you to disable the internal calibration. Where this becomes an issue is most calibration A2LA Certification Calibration Companies will NOT calibrate a balance unless the internal calibration can be disengaged. If your balance is going to require A2LA Certification the Sartorius CPA8201 balance may be a better choice.
Another design issue with the Ohaus Explorer 0.01g and 0.1 toploading balances is the windshield surrounds the platform implemented to deflect air currents from disturbing the weighing pan. Notice how the windshield wraps around the weighing pan. Sometimes this causes an obstruction in your weighing application where the item you are weighing "you think is on the platform" but actually the sample is touching the windshield, thus providing the incorrect weighing results. The Sartorius CPA8201 doesn't have this windshield design and offers a larger weigh pan 7.4" x 8.0" since Sartorius refined their balance so well it needs no windshield.
The EP4101CN is NTEP Approved (a.k.a. Legal for Trade) for 4100g x 0.1g and you click the Certificate of Conformance hyperlink below in the balance specification table to fully understand the Ohaus EP4101CN limitations.
Ohaus Explorer Pro Balances are available in both analytical and precision configurations, in a variety of capacities. The Explorer Pro line of precision balances offers capacities ranging from 210 x 0.001 grams to 32,000 x 0.1 grams. The analytical balances line offers capacities of 62, 110 and 210 grams and you can review them all at the bottom of this web page.
If the EP4101 is too expensive for your budget we have other alternatives. The FZ/FX5000i will cost you less money while giving you greater weighing capacity and more accuracy. If you want a precision balance with 0.01 gram resolution, take a look at the AND Weighing FZ-5000i (5200g x 0.01g). The FZ5000i has internal calibration which means there is no need to purchase expensive calibration weights. If you want to spend less money and prefer external calibration take a look at the FX-5000i.
In addition, the A&D FXi/FZi series comes with an RS-232C interface for bidirectional communication for weight measurements transferred to an optional printer or computer. Plus AND's WinCT data acquisition software data communication software works with either the FXi or FZi balance. Other manufacturer's charge you $100's more for either their balance communication software or a third party software, but with the A&D you can download WinCT balance software free. There is also an optional FXi-08 ethernet interface or FXi-02 USB interface available at an additional cost if you prefer not to use RS232 to transfer data from the balance to your computer.
