Ohaus Explorer EP6102 precision balance (6100g x 0.01g) can be purchased 3 ways - the standard Explorer EP6102 which has no internal calibration and is NOT Legal for Trade; the EP6102N 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 EP6102CN which is the EP6102 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).
The EP6102CN is NTEP Approved (a.k.a. Legal for Trade) precision balance and we highly recommend you click the Certificate of Conformance hyperlink below in the balance specification table to fully understand the Ohaus EP6102CN limitations. The Ohaus EP6102CN weighing specs are 6100g weighing capacity and increments in 0.01 gram increments, but in the NTEP / Legal for Trade mode the increment is only in 0.1 gram graduations.
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 CPA6202S lab 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 CPA6202 balance and the Sartorius GW6202 doesn't have this windshield design since Sartorius refined their balance so well it needs no windshield. The Sartorius CPA6202S also offers a larger weigh pan 7.4" x 8.0".
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 Ohaus Explorer EP6102 is too expensive for your budget and you need 0.01 gram resolution, check out Sartorius GW6202 precision balance. We feel the GW6202 precision toploader from Sartorius is CLEARLY the best value Precision Weighing Balances has to offer.
GW6202 toploading balance offers a maximum weighing capacity of 6200 grams and readability to 0.01 gram intervals. This precision balance features a backlit LCD display, motorized internal calibration, larger 7.1" x 7.1" weighing platform [Ohaus EP6102 is 6.8" x 6.8"], RS232 interface, parts counting mode, and weigh below capability all for an unbelievably low price. Sartorius GW6202 balances are in stock and ready for immediate delivery.
