The Adam Equipment CQT Core portable conventional, or precision, balance has a backlit liquid crystal display with a character height of 18 mm for viewing results in dim lighting. The balance may also be operated the use of AC power or six AA batteries for full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find, and the auto off function may also be enabled to power off the balance automatically to conserve power. Overload protection prevents damage to the load cell if too-heavy samples are mistakenly used. The below-balance weighing hook suspends bulky items beneath the balance for weighing.
The balance weighs in nine different units, and the automatic external calibration function ensures repeatable measurements. The round stainless steel weighing pan is corrosion resistant and may also be easily removed from the base for quick clean-up. A built-in security slot for locks and cables protects the balance from unauthorized use or theft. Warrantied by the manufacturer for two years.
Balances are measuring instruments used to decide the mass of an object, at the same time as scales are used to measure the weight of an object. The measurement results from balances are in most cases thought to be to be more precise compared to results from scales. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001 g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, the use of infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a pc.
Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which used to be founded in the UK in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.
