Share Article

Advancing accuracy, durability and portability into one practical design, Ohaus is introducing the EC Series Counting scales. The new scales, joining OhausÂ? existing line of counting scales, feature and internal counting resolution of 1:600,000. Geared for users seeking more economical and cost-effective counting solutions, the EC Counting Scales provide ease-of-use and reliable results.

The new high-resolution counting scales have capacities from six to 60 pounds, and can count parts as small as 0.0002 pounds (based on model). Ideally suited for a host of counting applications, including annual inventories, stock rooms, print shops and rentals, the EC Series Counting Scales can be used to count parts ranging from semiconductor chips, electronic coils and screws to ticket stubs and seeds.

The EC Series Counting Scales offer all the features demanded from industrial, warehousing and production applications, including easy-to-use manual Average Piece Weight entry with configuration options for either pound or gram display. The scales are designed with a removable stainless steel weighing pan and durable ABS plastic housing, perfect for use in industrial environments. Additionally, the 80-hour internal rechargeable battery with power-saving Auto-shut off feature and integrated carry handles provides true portability.

For fast and accurate counting, users simply place a known quantity of what they wish to count on the scale and press the dedicated Sampling Key or, for components where unit weight is known, simply input the value on the dedicated APW key. The scale will automatically display the total count of all parts on the pan as well as calculate and display the unit weight of the part. Users can start with a small sample size of 10, and then add random lots of pieces (below original sampling size) to increase their APW accuracy. The software in the machine automatically updates and enhances its average piece weight data as components are loaded onto the pan during counting. If the total weight or APW is too low, the EC Counting Scale will warn the user with a warning on the LCD panel.

The EC Series Counting Scales provide weighing, counting and accumulation application modes, and can perform both positive and negative counting, continuously keeping track of how many items have been added or removed from the scale. The counting scales have dedicated keys for the most common counting operations, including sample, tare, zero, APW entry stability, accumulations and pre-set tare entry. Preset tare weights can be quickly entered via the keyboard, or use the Tare key.

The memory accumulation feature keeps a running tally of each individual count – invaluable in batch counting operations or when accumulation counting large quantities of the same part. The new counting scales also include 10 memory locations for storing commonly-used part weights, easily accessed using the numeric keypad.

All of the EC Series Counting Scales come complete with the following standard features:

• Three-window, backlit LCD with fast display of weight, average piece weight and parts count.

• Seven function, full counting keypad with numeric keys.

• Pound or gram weighing units.

• Auto-optimization feature recalculates APW constantly for enhanced parts counting accuracy.

• Adjustable filtering level and Auto-Zero Tracking for weighing in industrial conditions.

• AC Adapter and internal rechargeable lead acid battery.
