Product Details

Smart Range Dual Readability This laboratory balance has both high resolution and standard resolution ranges and a system that automatically switches between the two based on the value on the weight display. Regardless of load on the weighing pan, when the weight display is set back to zero using the tare function the readability automatically switches back to high resolution.

Fanless Direct Current Static Eliminator With Replaceable Electrode Units Static electricity can alter measurements up to several milligrams. That's why A&D designed this BM5D Ion microgram model to include a built in ionizer in the upper section of the weighing chamber. Just hold your sample in the neutralizing chamber for a few seconds before you weigh. You'll get approximately 10,000 hours of use before you have to replace the electrode units.

Automatic Internal Calibration You won't have to worry about buying and maintaining external calibration weights to keep this micro balance nice and accurate. The Ion series BM-5D has automatic motor driven internal calibration that uses an internal mass to automatically calibrate when a significant change in ambient temperature is detected. You can also turn off the auto calibration feature if you are weighing a very light sample, or need to perform long term weighing.

Internal Memory For Up To 200 Data Sets This balance will store up to 200 sets of weighing data. If you want to store the time and date along with the weighing data, you can save up to 100 sets. All data sets are stored internally on the balance and remain even when the power adapter is removed. You can output all your saved data at once to a personal computer, or printer at any time to clear up internal memory.

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) & Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Data Output The data output format includes the balance manufacturer, model, serial number, ID number, date, time and space for signature. Connecting the balance to a personal computer or printer allows you to output a Calibration Report of the automatic self calibration and one-touch calibration using the internal mass. You can also output a Calibration Report of calibration using an external weight and a calibration test using an external weight. Title and end blocks can also be output for weighing data.

Below Balance Weighing This laboratory balance has a weigh below hook built in for measuring density and weighing magnetic materials.

Density Determination This microgram balance has has a density mode that can be turned on and used to measure the density of solids.

RS-232C & USB Interface Ports The A&D BM-5D Ion has both RS232 and USB interfaces built in for easy communication with printers and computers. You can even send data to a computer through the USB while the RS-232C is sending data to a printer.

Anti-static Glass Breeze Break With Cross-Over Control This microbalance's glass breeze break has a light coating of clear metal to minimize the effects of static. You can open either door of the weighing chamber from the opposite side, or open both sides with one hand thanks to the interlocking door feature.

Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS) Technology The A&D SHS combines magnetic force restoration and single-point parallelogram load sensing technologies to bring you fast stabilization and high resolution. This increases productivity for all weighing work-flows and offers higher maintenance accessibility.

Does This Thing Count? You bet it does! All you need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the Ion BM-5D can know how much each piece weighs, then start counting. You'll be finished in no time.

ACAI™ (Automatic Counting Accuracy Improvement) This function will improve the accuracy of the unit weight by re-calculating the unit weight with each additional amount of pieces you put on the platform. This is gonna make counting your parts and pieces super accurate and super easy.

Percent Weighing This feature will let you compare the weights of your samples against a predetermined reference weight. This can be helpful in weight checking, compounding, formulating and more.

Liquid Level Indicator & Adjustable Feet All you have to do is adjust the feet on the bottom of this Ion lab balance until the spirit bubble is centered within the level indicator. A leveled balance is important for getting the most accurate weight readings.

5 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! The Ion BM-5D microgram balance is covered with a 5 year warranty from AND Weighing against defects in material and workmanship.
