Ohaus Scout Pro SP6001 offers 6000g weighing capacity with readability to 0.1 grams.
Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout Pro continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout and Scout II products. Featuring easy-to-use two-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, multiple weighing units and the option of either RS232 or USB connectivity (the interface is a $107 optional accessory) the Scout Pro is the portable balance for you.
When the Ohaus SP6001 gram scale is first installed, and when it is moved to another location, it must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. Span calibration uses two calibration points, zero and a 6000 grams calibration weights. Either a 5kg with a 1kg mass or two(2) 3kg or three(3) 2 kilogram weights or any combination yielding 6000 grams.
For even a better calibration you can perform a linearity calibration uses three calibration points; zero, mid-scale (3000g) and full scale(6000g). The Ohaus SP6001 default calibration is span calibration but if you enter the S.E.T.U.P. Menu and select "Lin Cal" you can perform linearity calibration. No calibration weights come with the SP6001 so you would need to purchase the calibration weights separately.

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SP6001US is the A&D EJ6100 offering a similar design and the ability to purchase either the RS-232 or USB module 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 EJ digital scales are backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus has only 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 0.1g digital scales then we have a couple of other digital scales that are made in China. These gram scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SP6001, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified digital portable scale, with less features we recommend the My Weigh's i5500 (5500g x 0.1g), Myweigh i11000 (11000g x 0.1g) EPB-6K Electronic Scale (6,000g x 0.1g) or EPB-10K Digital Scale (10,000g x 0.1g) that are priced less than the Ohaus SP6001. Selecting any of these digital scales you can get much more weighing capacity for less $$$.
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 SP6001 is NOT Legal for Trade and we recommend you purchase the A&D EK-1200i or Mettler Toledo JL6001-GLA01 digital scale.
