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.
IP 65 Water Resistant HousingThis precision balance has a water resistant housing with an IP (Ingress Protection) rating of 65. This means the GF-8K is protected from dust and splashed water from all directions. So, ya won't have to worry about getting this A&D balance wet...just wipe it off when you're finished.
Programmable Auto On & Auto OffYou can program this precision balance to automatically turn on when the AC is plugged in and to turn off after a few minutes of inactivity.
Dynamic Weighing FeatureThis precision balance has a really cool dynamic weighing feature that will let ya get accurate weights of unstable items, this is especially great for weighing animals!
Checkweighing FeatureTo make sure ya get your weights just right, this precision scale has a checkweighing feature that will let ya set your target weight. Once your target weight is set, the GF-8K will let ya know when you're over, under or just right.
Accumulation FeatureThis cumulative weighing feature will let ya get the weights of separate items, then you can see the total weight of all the items you just weighed. This is gonna come in real handy for weighing separate items and total weights for packaging and processing.
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.
Does This Thing Count?You bet it does! All ya need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the GF8K 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 ya 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 PortThe A&D GF8K has an RS232 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.
Removable Stainless Steel PlatformThe GF 8K 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.
Easy CalibrationThe GF-8K is factory calibrated and ready to use. This industrial scale will rarely need calibrating, but if ya use it ALL of the time, or ya want to be sure you're getting the most accurate weight readings, ya might want to calibrate it from time to time. You'll just need to pick up a 5 kilogram calibration weight, (not included) to get the job done.
Weighing HookSometimes the thing ya 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 GF 8K. This scale has a weighing hook built right into the bottom. This hook works by pulling on the weighing platform when an item is hanging from it, just like if ya were to put an item on top of the platform. Just uncover the hook, and hang your item from it to weigh.
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 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 you quickly and easily get your scale nice and level. A level scale is important for getting the most accurate weight readings.
