  • Thanks to the high resolution of up to 360000 points it is ideal for high-precision weighing in the industrial field
  • Particularly practical: thanks to the large weighing ranges and compact dimensions, you can accurately weigh heavy loads in the most restricted of spaces. Useful for determining very small weight differences, such as, e.g. gas wastage, abrasion of mechanical parts, rock samples, minerals, druses, silver etc.
  • PRE-TARE function for manual subtraction of a known container weight, useful for checking fill-levels
  • Freely programmable weighing unit, e.g. display directly in special units such as length of wire g/m, surface weight g/m2 (paper, material, metal)
