Features
Impact shock detection (ISD) providing feedback to prevent damage to the weight sensor*1
Electronically controlled load (ECL) that enables precision management without using an external weight*1
Flow rate display (FRD) that makes calculating and recording flow rates easier and more accurate*2
Smart super hybrid sensor (Smart SHS) that realizes fast stabilization, long-term durability and low cost of ownership
Shock logging function that records up to 50 adverse impact loads with a timestamp for later inspection
Cushioning under the weighing pan to mitigate impact shocks significantly
Protection against vertical and transverse static overloading
Flow rate comparator that indicates whether the flow rate is within the designated limits
Tare memory function that saves the tare value in non-volatile memory
Built-in fanless ionizer with Quick Ion technology and external IR switch (GX-AE)
Large and detachable, antistatic glass breeze break (0.0001 g readability models)
Retractable doors that disappear into the back, requiring no extra space at the rear
Automatic self calibration in response to temperature changes or according to set schedules (GX-AE/A)
Automatic minimum weight calculation with either ECL or an actual, external weight
Alert function to ensure that the measured quantity is not smaller than the set minimum weight
Selectable response characteristics for trading weighing speed for higher display stability or vice versa
Large, front-mounted spirit level with LED illumination
Easy-to-adjust leveling feet with thumbwheels
User access control (UAC) that password-protects the balance from misusage
GLP/GMP/GCP/ISO compliant output to meet documentation requirements
Universal Flexi Coms (UFC) to customize printout content and layout*3
Gross/Net/Tare output
Data memory function to save weighing results, calibration results and unit masses to be used in counting mode in the device itself
Counting mode with the Automatic Counting Accuracy Improvement (ACAI) function
Percent mode function for target weighing or checking sample variation
Animal weighing (average & hold) function for weighing moving objects
Statistical calculation function (SCF) to facilitate the analysis of measurements
Five-level comparator function with buzzer
Auto power ON and OFF functions
Density determination function (optional density determination kits available for the 0.0001/0.001 g readability models)
Underhook for weighing a magnetic material as well as measuring density
