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.

Internal CalibrationYou won't have to worry about buying calibration weights to keep this lab balance nice and accurate. This PX-523 Pioneer milligram balance has internal calibration that uses an internal mass to perform calibration. This is gonna come in really handy, especially if ya don't like maintaining calibration weights or going through the whole calibration process. If ya prefer to calibrate the scale manually, you can still do that too.

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 PX523 Pioneer. This milligram 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 PX523 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 PX-523 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 & USB PortsThe PX523 Pioneer has both RS232 and USB communication ports built in for easy communication with printers, computers, monitors and more.

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.

Protective Draft ShieldWhen you're weighing with milligram 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 PX 523 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 PX-523 to to send the data 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 milligram 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 PX523 will do the rest.

Dynamic WeighingThe PX-523 milligram 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.

Static Removal Bar Static can cause weight fluctuations and inaccurate weight readings, which is why Ohaus designed the PX523 weighing chamber with a static removal bar. The bar is constructed of permanent static electric dissipative ABS and provides a convenient grounding location.

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Data Output You can set a header, balance name, user name, and project name on the Pioneer balances.

2 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY!When ya buy the PX523 Pioneer, you'll need to head on over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive your two year warranty.
