Ohaus AV812 Adventurer Pro SmarText™ is Ohaus’ easy to use embedded balance software that utilizes text prompts to guide users through application use and balance setup. Delivered through a 2 line backlit LCD and clearly marked buttons, SmarText tells you what is going on and what you have to do next.
Utilizing the 2-line LCD, SmarText simultaneously displays weight and application specific information such as percent or count. For example, with one touch of the Function button, SmarText will display application reference information such as average piece weight (APW), while displaying a parts count in the weight display.
Additionally, Adventurer AV812 Pro has been designed with an up-front level indicator eliminating the need to look behind the balance during the leveling process. A quick glance at the up-front level indicator helps to ensure that the balance is level prior to each use. The AV812 portable balance also offers six application modes and can perform in 17 US and international weighing units (mg weigh mode not available).
Ohaus Adventurer Pro AV812 Balance offers 810 grams weighing capacity and precision to 0.01 gram. The large 5.8" x 6.3" weighing platform and ability to operate on either AC adapter or 4 AA batteries makes this a great all purpose portable precision scale.
Since its introduction, the Ohaus Adventurer Pro has continuously set new standards for versatility, performance and value in an affordable precision balance. Designed with a solid foundation of standard features customers have long appreciated, like an ergonomic leveling system, RS232 connectivity and GLP Data capabilities, the Adventurer Pro now offers a few additional extras created from direct customer feedback. All Ohaus Pro Electronic balances can be for an additional cost equipped with internal calibration.
Adventurer Pro is available in both analytical and precision configurations, in a variety of capacities. The Adventurer Pro line of precision balances offers capacities ranging from 51 x 0.001 grams to 8,100 x 0.1 grams. The lines of analytical balances offer capacities of 65, 110 and 260 grams and you can review them all at the bottom of this web page.
Is the Ohaus AV812 too expensive for your budget and you can work with a little less weighing capacity? We also offer the A&D EJ610 (610g x 0.01g) or EK610i priced substantially less than the Ohaus AV812.
Before you make your final selection be sure to see the new Sartorius Practum 1102-1S (1100g x 0.01g) featuring a touch screen user interface for easy balance configuration.
US government customers required to comply with the Buy American Act clause the only similar balance we offer to the AV812 that is made in America would be the Scientech SL1000. FAR Part 25.003 requirements state that domestic end products are preferred over foreign end products, and the Ohaus Adventurer is not made in the USA.
The Ohaus AV812 weigh sensor is a load cell built using strain gauge technology. The strain gauge can give you good weighing results for weighing static loads, but can drift much more due to temperature variations caused by excitation energy used with a load cell strain gauge weigh sensor. You'll get better performance, linearity and repeatability with an electromagnetic weigh sensor found in the A&D FX-1200i. If you don't understand then watch this video HERE demonstrating a magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge scale.
The A&D FX-1200i features 1220 grams with 0.01 grams resolutions. The Ohaus AV812 only has a 2 year limited manufacturer warranty the A&D FX1200i has a 5 year warranty. There are many other features that really stand out on the AND Weighing FX1200i like a smaller footprint saving you valuable lab bench space.
