  • Indicator with large backlit LCD has six-foot cable to allow for placement where indicator is most readable
  • Stainless steel 300 x 300mm (W x D) weighing pan is corrosion resistant
  • Powered by six standard AA (LR6) batteries or the included AC adapter, for increased mobility
  • Programmable hold function enables dynamic weighing of unstable samples or in unstable environments

Size:6 Bench Scale, 6kg Capacity and 2g Readability

The Adam Equipment CPWplus 6 bench scale has a capacity of 6000g and an accuracy of 2g (also called readability), and an indicator with a large backlit display for clear readings in either bright or dim lighting. The six-foot cable allows the indicator to be placed where it is most readable, out of the way of the platform. Using the integrated bracket, the indicator can be mounted on a wall or propped on a table and then tilted to adjust the viewing angle. The steel platform is durable and stable, and the stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion and is easy to clean. This scale can be operated using AC power, or six standard AA (LR6) batteries for up to 60 hours, for full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find. The auto off function can be enabled to power off the scale automatically after periods of inactivity to conserve power. The scale has an automatic external calibration system as well as a programmable hold function for dynamic weighing of unstable samples (such as animals) or in unstable environments.

The scale tares and weighs in four different units. The built-in RS-232 port connects to a computer or printer for recording data, and printing can be synchronized with the scale’s hold function to print automatically when a measurement is stable. When used according to manufacturer’s recommendations, this product is covered by a one-year warranty.

Scales or balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object. 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 (0.0001g 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, using 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 computer.

Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which was founded in the United Kingdom in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.

The biggest piece of junk I have ever tried to use. Won't zero, and won't hold a weight. The manufacturer offers zero support. DO NOT BUY.

Worked for one year then just stopped working in the middle of a project. Would recommend not buying this product.

Good value and it has the 50 gram precision I need. This is the third one I own. I took a star out because the plastic end caps of the display break easily. They broke in my two previous scales, after some time of use. I wish Adam would send me a couple of replacements (I spent over $30 replacing two of them).

The scale occasionally works, maybe 1 out of 5 times. Until I get a replacement, currently looking for another brand, I make do by weighing what I need once, then have to leave it off for a long while until it works again. Which is not good enough, as I need it

Contacted manufacturer to enquire if I got a lemon, or if they can help diagnose the problem, but no response.

Works great!

A great value! The balance arrived in good working condition. The accuracy was a bit off but not requiring of re calibration. 10.00 kg weight reads as 10.04 kg.

This scale is just wonderful and I greatly trust it. I used a similar version of this scale at a university to weigh dry materials in ceramics. Originally, I was going to purchase a smaller capacity version of this brand of scale, but then I thought that 200kg was better (go big or go home, plus you never know how heavy something could be that you would need to weigh). I believe the downside to purchasing the larger capacity scale is that the increments are larger (the readability)? Despite this, it has great accuracy, and the LCD can be mounted via holes in the back. I recommend covering the LCD with clear plastic if you plan on getting it dirty.
