Ohaus Scout® SJX Balances, Legal for Trade Portable Jewelry Balance


Normal Availability: 2-3 business days

Product Description

The Ohaus Scout® SJX series of portable balances are designed for a wide range of Legal-for-Trade applications.  NTEP and Measurement Canada approved models meet or exceed Class II or Class III accuracy requirements making them ideal for commercial applications where reliability and precision are essential.  The certified SJX Carat and Gold balances are ideal for weighing jewelry, precious metals and gemstones.

The large LCD display with 0.78 in (20 mm) digits and backlight provide a clear view of weighing results.  An optional auxiliary display can also be installed to provide additional weight notifications to customers in retail environments.

These rugged balances have an ABS housing and stainless steel pan. They run on the included AC power adapter or on 4 AA batteries (not included) and have a low battery indicator, auto-shutoff, auto tare, mechanical and software overload/underload protection menu and calibration lockout switch.  Each includes a security bracket, skid-resistant leveling feet, stability indicator, an up-front level indicator, a transportation lock to protect the load cell, and a weigh-below hook.  

These balances display weights in Gram, Kilogram, Carat, Ounce, Troy Ounce, Pennyweight, Pound, and Grain.
