Internal Calibration You won't have to worry about buying calibration weights for this precision scale. This A&D balance has internal calibration that uses internal weights for calibration. If you still want to calibrate it the old fashioned way, you can do that too. You'll just need to pick up a 500 gram calibration weight (not included) to get the job done.
Fast & Accurate With Magnetic Force Restoration This balance is equipped with magnetic force restoration, or electro-magnetic force, to provide super fast, accurate and repeatable measurements.
Programmable Auto Off Feature If you've ever have your scale turn off on you in the middle of important measurements, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can program the FZ-i to turn off automatically after about 10 minutes of inactivity, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
Dynamic Weighing Feature This precision balance has a really cool dynamic weighing feature that will let you get accurate weights of unstable items, this is especially great for weighing animals!
Checkweighing Feature To make sure you get your weights just right, this precision scale has a checkweighing feature that will let you set your target weight. Once your target weight is set, the FZ-500i will let you know when you're over, under or just right.
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.
Does This Thing Count? You bet it does! All you need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the FZ500i 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 scale. This is gonna make counting your parts and pieces super accurate and super easy.
Bright Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) This digital scale has a fancy VFD display with bright blue digits so your weight readings will be nice and clear. Benefits of the VFD compared to LCD are a wider range of viewing angles, brighter digits, better contrast and easy viewing from greater distances.
RS-232 Serial Port The A&D FZ500i has an RS232 port built right in. This is important if you want to send your weight readings and other data to an external source like a computer or printer.
Removable Stainless Steel Platform The FZ 500i 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.
Weighing Hook Sometimes the thing you need to weigh just won't fit on the scale's platform. Now that's a problem for most scales, but not the A&D FZ 500i. This scale has a weighing hook built right into the bottom. This hook works by pulling on the weighing platform when you hang an item from it, just like if you were to put an item on top of the platform. Just uncover the hook, and hang your item from it to weigh.
Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this digital 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 you want to use an expansion scoop to weigh your things, or if you want to get separate weights of multiple items.
Liquid Level Indicator This very handy feature will help you quickly and easily get your scale nice and level. A level scale is important for getting the most accurate weight readings.
