The Ohaus TJ611 Triple Junior mechanical triple beam balance has a capacity of 610g and an accuracy of 0.1g (also referred to as readability). The balance is operated by positioning the 10g, 500g, and 100g sliding weights (also referred to as riders or poises) along the three notched, tiered beams. Magnetic damping speeds weighing, causing the beam to come to rest quickly without affecting sensitivity or accuracy , at the same time as the spring-loaded zero adjust compensator prevents accidental changes to the setting and obtains precise results. An integrated security slot for locks and cables safeguards the balance from unauthorized use or theft. The stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion from spills of most sample materials. The balance is manufactured to ISO 9001:2000 standards.

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 normally thought to be to be more precise in comparison to results from scales. Mechanical balances are the most straightforward 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 (0.0001g 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.
Ohaus manufactures scales and balances for laboratory, educational, retail, food, and jewelry applications. The company, which used to be founded in 1914, is headquartered in Parsippany, NJ.
