The Ohaus Pioneer balance has been discontinued and replaced with the new and improved Pioneer PX84/E analytical balance.
Ohaus is a fine scale. We love 'em!
But... we want to make you aware of one thing about Ohaus.
Unless it's defective, you simply cannot return an Ohaus product, no matter what.
You won't find this information on our competitor's sites, but Old Will thinks you should be aware of it when you buy an Ohaus scale.

Product Details

Fast & Accurate With Magnetic Force RestorationThis lab balance is equipped with magnetic force restoration, or electro-magnetic force, to provide super fast, accurate and repeatable measurements.

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 PA84 Pioneer. This analytical balance 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. This will come in handy for density determination, gravity calculation, and a lot more.

Does This Thing Count?You bet it does! All ya need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the PA84 can know how much each piece weighs, then start counting. You'll be finished in no time.

Average Piece WeightBefore ya start counting your pieces, ya need to let the PA-84 know how much each piece weighs. Ohaus made this simple by averaging the weight of the pieces ya put on the scale. Just type in how many pieces ya put on the platform, and the Pioneer will average the weights. The bigger your sample is, the more accurate the balance will be when counting your pieces.

RS-232 InterfaceThe Pioneer comes with 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.

Percent WeighingThis feature will let ya compare the weights of your samples against a predetermined reference weight. This can be helpful with recipe formulation and adjusting batch sizes.

Easy CalibrationTo make sure ya keep getting the best weight readings from the PA84 Pioneer, it helps to calibrate it from time to time. This analytical balance has instructions to make calibrating your Pioneer easy. You'll just need to pick up a 50 gram calibration weight (not included) to get the job done.

Protective Draft ShieldWhen you're weighing with analytical balances like this one, even the tiniest breeze can interfere with weight readings. This Ohaus balance comes with a durable windscreen to keep out those pesky drafts. Oh, and don't worry, the Pioneer makes it easy to put your items on, or take them off, the platform. The top and sides slide all the way back.

Stainless Steel PlatformThe Pioneer series has a durable stainless steel weighing platform that doesn't scratch easily and will keep its shine without rusting or tarnishing.

Tare FeatureThe tare button on the front of the PA 84 Pioneer can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the balance. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the item you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use a separate weighing container, or get the weights of separate items.

Programmable Auto Printing FeatureThis lab balance will automatically print your data for you! Just tell the PA-84 to continuously send data to the printer, to send it at user selectable intervals, when the balance is stable, or to only send it when ya press the print key. That's pretty handy, right?

Liquid Level Indicator & Adjustable FeetThis very handy feature helps you quickly and easily get your balance nice and level. All ya have to do is adjust the feet on the bottom of the Pioneer until the spirit bubble is centered within the level indicator. A level balance is important for getting the most accurate weight readings.

Density DeterminationThe Ohaus Pioneer analytical balances can determine density of both liquids and solids. All ya have to do is enter a couple of parameters into the balance, and the PA84 will do the rest.

Dynamic WeighingThe PA-84 analytical balance has a really cool dynamic weighing feature. This feature will allow ya to accurately weigh unstable items by calculating the average weight of what's on the platform. Great for animal weighing.

2 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY!When ya buy the PA84 Pioneer, you'll need to head on over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive your two year warranty.
