Ohaus Scout SPX223 is one of newest additions to the expanding line of the Ohaus Scout Series for 2016. This is a economy entry level milligram digital scale is built using strain gauge technology and offers 220 grams weighing capacity and increments in 0.001 gram divisions. Now just because the scale increments in 0.001 gram divisions does not mean it is accurate to 1 milligram. Ohaus states the repeatability as ± 2 divisions and linearity as ± 3 divisions. In other words the precision is ± 2 milligrams and accuracy is ± 3 milligrams and this is Ohaus testing the scale in the most ideal environment - perfect temperature, humidity, zero electronic noise interference, rock solid stable surface, perfectly level, etc so it would be extremely difficult for you to achieve those results.

Some people might say how can the SPX223 be priced so low? Again the SPX223 is built with a loadcell using strain gauge technology. Many people just don't have the money to spend for the higher quality and better performance found in a electromagnetic force restoration balance like the AND Weighing FX200i, Sartorius ENTRIS323-1S Balance or Sartorius Quintix 213-1S laboratory scale.

Ohaus isn't the only company now selling low cost milligram scale using strain gauge technology. MyWeigh has the MyWeigh GemPro250 scale and Adam offers the Adam Equipment PGL203 milligram scale which are both strain gauge loadcell scales. We even have our own EPB-103, EPB-203 and EPB-303 strain gauge milligram scales, but our best advice is DON'T buy a strain gauge loadcell milligram scale unless you absolutely have no money to spend for a quality milligram balance using electromagnetic force restoration weighing technology since strain gauge scales drift. Look Sartorius stopped selling the AY303 milligram strain gauge scale since they did not want to ruin their reputation for building the finest weighing devices in the world.

So if you are in a situation were you don't have the money to spend for a electromagnetic force restoration balance the Ohaus SPX223 could be the answer, but understand what you are buying. If you don't understand the difference between strain gauge and electromagnetic force restoration balance you should watch our video on youtube "Magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge digital scale" or "Strain gauge loadcell vs electromagnetic force restoration". A strain gauge can work fine for weighing static loads and you quickly take the weight reading and use the draftshield, but the numbers are going to start to creep if you wait too long and the scale will perform horrible if you are trickling gunpowder just forget it. I don't know how to stress it any more but buy electromagnetic force restoration balance and if you don't have enough money stay just wait until you can save more.

The Ohaus SPX223 offers a large choice of optional communication options. You can select from the OPTIONAL RS232 Interface Kit, USB Device Interface Kit, Bluetooth Interface Kit or Ethernet Interface Kit. The Scout SPX223 scale dimensions are 8.8 x 8.0 x 3.5 inches and has a 3.7 inch diameter weighing platform.

The Ohaus SPX offers 10 weighing modes - Grams, Kilograms, Pounds, Pound:Ounces, Ounces, Newtons, Carats, Grains, Pennyweight and Troy Ounces. For weighing applications the Ohaus Scout SPX models include Counting, Percent Weighing, Display Hold, Totalization and Check Weigh.

The Ohaus SPX Scales also feature adjustable feet and level bubble to help level your digital scale to provide the most accurate weighing results.

Additional OPTIONAL accessories include a Kensington Lock to prevent theft.

Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout SPX continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout, Scout II and Scout Pro products. Featuring easy-to-use four-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included) for complete portability.

Features include ABS housing, stainless steel pan, weigh below hook, transportation lock, manual calibration lock switch, security slot, adjustable leveling feet, illuminated up-front level indicator. Stability indicator, mechanical and software overload/underload protection, low battery indicator, auto shut-off and auto tare. Span calibration weight is included with the Scout SPX223.

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SPX223 is the AND Weighing FX200i comes standard with an RS-232 interface if you want to send weighing results to a computer. A&D offers WinCT data communication software to download free while Ohaus offers no free software. In addition, the A&D FXi precision balances are backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus Scout SPX223 only has a 2 year warranty. Schools are always calling us asking which scale offers the longer warranty and the 5 year warranty is something they really like.

If price is absolutely the #1 issue and you are in search of the lowest cost 0.001g digital scales then we have a couple of other strain gauge digital scales that are made in China - the Ohaus SPX223 is also made in China. These milligram scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SPX223, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified milligram digital scale, with less features we recommend our own EPB-103, EPB-203 and EPB-303 strain gauge milligram scales offering 100 gram, 200 grams, 300 grams respectively all incremental in 1 milligram divisions for much, much less money.

If you are a jeweler or pawn shop and were told by a Weights & Measures Inspector that you need a Legal for Trade Class II Scale the Ohaus SPX223 is NOT Legal for Trade and we recommend you purchase the AND FX200iN NTEP Class 2 approved scale or Mettler Toledo JS1603C/A digital gem stone balance.
