The Ohaus Compact Scale offers precision weighing results, and has a stainless steel weighing platform that can handle bulky samples in a variety of applications, including weighing soil samples, postal weighing, and food weighing for home-use dietary needs. The weighing platform is corrosion-resistant, and measures 13.3 x 14.4cm (W x D), and can easily be removed for cleaning (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back). The scale can be operated using AC power or three standard AA batteries, offering full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find, for up to 300 hours. When running on batteries, the scale turns off automatically after approximately four minutes if no weighing activity is occurring. The scale has an external calibration system, operated from the front-facing keypad (calibration masses not included), to ensure accurate measurements. Protection from radio frequency means that this scale delivers accurate results when used in production areas or near cellular phones.
The scale measures in grams, ounces, pounds-and-ounces, and Newtons, and tares over the entire weighing range.
