HandiCal Internal CalibrationCalibration can be time consuming, so that's why Adam added the HandiCal calibration system that uses internal technology to calibrate the scale without the need of any external weights. You won't have to worry about buying calibration weights for the HCB 153. However, if ya prefer to calibrate the scale externally with your own weights, you can do that too.
ShockProtect Overload ProtectionThis three point protection system prevents damage to your scale from accidental overload. Adam Equipment says the HCB 153 can withstand kilograms of excess weight before the weighing mechanism is damaged.
Stackable For Compact StorageYou can stack (up to three without draft shields, or two with) the Highland balances for neat, compact storage...perfect for schools and other places tight on space.
Rechargeable Battery PackYou won't have to worry about searching high and low for a wall outlet to plug this precision scale into. This Adam scale has an internal rechargeable battery with up to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge!
Programmable Backlit DisplayThis Adam scale has a backlit weight display ya can program to always stay on, turn on with the press of a button, or to stay off. This feature is great for saving battery power.
Programmable Auto-OffTo save power, Adam designed this scale with a programmable auto off feature. Set the auto off timer on the Highland to turn off the scale with 0, 5, 10, 20 or 30 minutes of no activity.
Does This Thing Count?You bet it does! All ya need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the HCB can know how much each piece weighs, then start counting. You'll be finished in no time.
RS-232 & USB OutputThe HCB153 has an RS232 and USB port built right in. This is important if you're wanting to send your weight readings and other data to an external source like a computer or printer.
TotalizationYou can use this feature to repeatedly add the amounts on the scale together. This is a great feature if ya need a scale with cumulative weighing for compounding ingredients or check weighing.
Percent WeighingThis feature will let ya compare the weights of your samples against a predetermined reference weight. This can be helpful in weight checking, compounding, formulating and more.
Protective WindscreenWhen you're weighing with high precision scales like this one, even the tiniest breeze can interfere with weight readings. This Adam scale comes with a durable, glass windscreen to keep out those pesky drafts. Oh, and don't worry, this scale makes it easy to put your items on, or take them off, the platform. The top and sides slide all the way back.
Bright Backlit DisplayThis precision balance has a fancy backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. Not only that! This HCB153's display will tell ya if the scale is stable or not, which unit you're weighing in, the weight on the scale, if your battery is low and more. What more could ya need to know?
Stainless Steel PlatformThis precision balance has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Unlike gold or silver, stainless steel doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.
Tare FeatureThe tare button on the front of this digital lab scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use an expansion scoop to weigh your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.
Liquid Level IndicatorThis very handy feature will help ya quickly and easily get your scale nice and level. A level scale is important for getting the most accurate weight readings. All ya have to do is twist the feet on the bottom of the scale until the spirit bubble is centered within the level.
