Scientech SM50 Semi-Micro Balance, 50g capacity


Semi-Micro (0.01mg) weighing has never been easier! Scientech's SM series of semi micro balances comprises an impressive list of both single and dual range units.

The Scientech SM50 balance is a semi micro balance with 50 g capacity and external calibration.

Scientech's SM50 semi micro balance is part of the new and improved Series 12000 balances from Scientech. The Series 12000 line incorporates Scientech's unique displacement detector, which is the heart of their state of the art, self-adjusting digital servo. The result is a ten-fold increase in weighing performance while maintaining Scientech's proven, simple, easy to use operator interface. The attractive quality of this new design is further supported by Scientech’s ISO 9001 registration. Every Series 12000 model is a precise weighing device incorporating an impressive list of standard features.

All Series 12000 semi micro balances are microprocessor controlled with Scientech’s exclusive real time temperature compensation algorithm. This revolutionary internal software corrects every updated weight reading for temperature changes as small as 0.001°C without having to recalibrate the balance -- yielding accurate, reproducible results without the need to recalibrate your balance as the ambient temperature varies. All these complex calculations take place in the background and are totally invisible to the end user. You will never have that nagging doubt again that you should have recalibrated before that last critical weighing.

All Scientech balances are made in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Service and repairs are handled by Scientech with a five-day turnaround for factory service.

Key Features for Scientech SM50

Capacity Tracker - This dynamic graphical display automatically depicts the used and unused portions of your weighing range. The tracker is indispensable in taring out container weight and then weighing several components sequentially. You always know how much capacity remains.

Stability Indicator - The stability indicator tells you when your reading is valid, insuring reliable results. Stability sensitivity is user selectable, which allows you to customize your balance setup. You may disable the indicator at any time.

Vibration Filters - This feature allows you to select a filter setting which is best suited to your task. If your surroundings are vibration-free, set the filtering to low which yields results in the fastest possible time. In more adverse conditions, select either the normal or high filter parameter. These selections will insure reliable readings during your different weighing applications.

Live Animal Weighing - Weighing using the time averaging mode is ideal for live animal or severe environment weighing. This feature also includes a reset function which allows you to arrive at the final weight reading in seconds rather than minutes with just the push of a button.

Check Weighing - The check weighing feature tells if your sample weight is too high, too low, or OK. Interpretive error is eliminated. This application is ideal for JIT environments where quality of each sample must be assured.

Percent Weighing - By quickly selecting the % mode, you are able to weigh a sample in percent in order to easily determine percent moisture loss, percent solids, or compounding by percent.

Parts Counting - You can even use a Scientech balance for piece counting. Every model empowers you to count very small to large components quickly and accurately. The minimum fixed sample number is ten with a user selectable larger sample size feature at your fingertips.

Units of Measure - These multifunctional balances present a choice of eight different standard units of measure: grams (g), carats (ct), ounces (oz), troy ounces (ozt), pennyweight (dwt), milligrams (mg), kilograms (kg), and pounds (lb). Just push the mode button to select your desired unit of measure. Also available as an option is a custom weight register which allows any unit of measure you wish.
