Smart Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS) Technology The A&D Smart 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.
Electronically Controlled Load (ECL) Smart SHS technology also allows for internal repeatability tests to verify balance performance saving time and adding convenience over traditional external methods.
Overload Protection The Apollo balances utilize two leaf springs to physically mitigate impact shocks by supporting the weighing pan.
Impact Shock Detection (ISD) To further prevent damage to the weighing sensor, the GF-1603A provides real-time shock feedback both audibly and visually at four different levels. Use this information to adjust automated machine loading and educate operators on weighing techniques to prolong the life of the balance and reduce costs and downtime.
Flow Rate Display (FRD) This feature streamlines flow rate determination and prevents irregularities that rise from time-clock disparities.
Bi-Directional RS-232 & USB Interfaces The GF1603A has built in RS232 and USB ports for easy communication with printers, computers, monitors and more.
WinCT Communication SoftwareThis precision balance can be connected to a computer using the RS232 port and the included WinCT software. This software can be used with Windows based computers to transmit data to and from your GF precision balance.
Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) & Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Data Output The Apollo can output manufacturer, model, serial number, ID number, date + time, calibration report signature space, calibration test report, plus title and end blocks for series of weighing results.
Programmable Backlit Display This A&D washdown scale has a backlit weight display you can program to always stay on, turn off after a period of inactivity, or to stay off. You can also adjust the brightness level to fit your needs.
Internal Memory For Up To 200 Data Sets The Apollo has internal memory to store ID number, data number, time and date for weighing data and calibration reports.
Illuminated Liquid Level Indicator & Adjustable Feet To level the Apollo GF-1603A, turn each thumbwheel to adjust the foot up or down until the spirit bubble is centered within the level indicator.
Dynamic / Animal Weighing This lab balance has a useful dynamic weighing feature that allows you to accurately weigh unstable items by calculating the average weight of what's on the platform.
Checkweighing With LO-OK-HI Visual Indicator & Buzzer To make sure you get your weights just right, the Apollo has a checkweighing feature that will let you set your target weight. Once your target weight is set, the GF-1603A will let you know when you're over, under or just right with up to five threshold values.
Percent WeighingThis 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 GF1603A 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.
Removable Stainless Steel Platform The GF-1603A has a stainless steel weighing platform that lifts right off to make cleanup a breeze.
Below Balance Weighing The A&D Apollo is equipped with an internal mechanism to facilitate below balance weighing. Perfect for measuring magnetic materials and aiding density determination.
Tare FeatureThe 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.
5 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY!This compact balance is covered with a 5 year warranty from A&D Weighing against defects in material and workmanship.
