It's a sad, sad, sad day for the competition like Mettler-Toledo and Sartorius since now there is a new competitor that builds a milligram balance over 1000 gram weighing capacity. Lab managers are going to rejoice since the price is right for the GF-1000 milligram balance. Give Mettler a call and ask them what they have for 1100g x 1 mg and the PRICE. We are not a Mettler Toledo Laboratory Balance Dealer, but we are an Authorized Sartorius Dealer offering the MSA1203S and we have nothing in the price range that compare to the A&D GF-1000.
Plus A&D is backed with a 5 year limited manufacturer warranty and the last time we checked Sartorius & Mettler had a much shorter warranty. Oh, Yes A&D comes with free data acquisition software WinCT allowing you to import the data into your PC software, such as Windows based Word/Excel software. The balance data communication software is included as standard equipment unlike other manufacturer's that charge $100's for their software. Plus the GF-1000 milligram balance can be purchased with the optional GX-02 USB Interface which replaces the RS-232 or to make things even easier purchase the optional USB to 25pin RS-232 Converter. Add it all up and A&D is going to turn the weighing industry on their heads offering quality products, always in stock, spectacular technical support, plus A&D service centers on both the East and West Coast.
GF1000 comes standard with a low cost breeze break were the operator accesses the weighing platform by lifting the top cover. There is an optional GX10 draft shield with three sliding glass doors allows for easy access from the right, left or top.
The AND GF1000 is external calibration. When the balance is first installed or when it is moved to another location, it should be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. We always recommend you purchase an optional external 1kg calibration weight so you can perform the external calibration. Calibration is simply a press of the "Cal" button and then placing the external 1000g calibration weight on the weighing platform. . Another option is to upgrade to A&D GX1000 with motorized internal calibration weight.
Every location in the world is positioned differently to "magnetic north" and therefore the acceleration of gravity is slightly different. In addition, barometric pressure effects the acceleration of gravity depending upon your location's altitude to sea level. This is why the user manual always states to calibrate the balance prior to weighing. Please scroll down further on this web page and you can see all the available accessories.
A&D Lab Balances are accompanied by the industry leading five-year warranty, assuring long lasting quality and performance. Compare all the features, standard accessories, and price and you'll see it's tough to pass up purchasing any of the A&D Weighing Laboratory Balances for your precision weighing needs.
Need to use the balance in a area without a computer?? No problem A&D offers an optional 8121B data printer to meet your GLP/GMP requirements.
The stabilization time of one second is achieved when FAST is selected for the response rate to read a displayed value after a sample is placed on the pan. Other features include: a data memory function to store up to 40 sets of weighing data; Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) data output using the standard RS-232C serial interface; Large bright vacuum fluorescent display which lets you read the display from wherever you are working, even in a dimly lit area; Comparator Indicators displaying the comparison results; Capacity Indicator, displaying the weight value in percentage relative to the weighing capacity; Hold Function, provided for weighing a moving object such as an animal; Underhook, for measuring density and weighing magnetic materials; Density Mode, for calculating the density of a solid; Reference Card, provided for a quick reference to the balance operation; IP54 level dust & splash; Patented Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS)
Never heard of A&D? A&D is currently the world's third largest manufacturer of laboratory and industrial balances with 20% of the world market share. Established in 1977, A&D Company, Ltd. has grown from developing digital-to-analog converters for companies such as Nippon Telegraph & Telephone, to becoming a world class producer of advanced measuring equipment for medicine, science and industry. A&D established itself as a multinational corporation, with offices in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, Korea, Taiwan and Russia, and as a world leader in measurement equipment. The company's competitive edge is the direct result of its ability to leverage strong engineering and manufacturing capabilities, while incorporating highly accurate analog and digital technologies into broad product lines focused to provide customers with the greatest value.
We understand purchasing a quality milligram balance is a major capital expense and if you have any questions give us a call and one of our weighing experts can discuss your weighing application and get you the most affordable balance for your weighing needs. Precision Weighing Balances has been selling lab balances online since 1995 and we know balances so well we've been hired by some of the most prestigious law firms in America as an expert witness. Sadly, most of the catalog companies and vendors online have never even turned on a balance and can't answer any questions about how the balance functions.

offers all the spectacular features of the GX-Seriesexcept the internal motorized
calibration feature has been removed. Therefore, the
GF1000 milligram lab balance has the samedisplay, features,
ip-65 rating,SHS technology except there is no internal calibration mass.
9000 procedures favor the calibration of balances with an external
certified calibration mass. A balance with internal motorized
calibration weight is a nice feature, but costly. Most
balances with the internal calibration feature also offer external
calibration. External calibration is vital since it is
much more convenient to send out the external calibration mass
for recalibration/certification verses the costly fee of having
the internal calibration mass removed from the balance and sent
out for re-calibration.
addition, if you own several of the same balances just one external
traceable calibration is needed for ISO compliance.
Weighing Balances always recommends that you purchase the calibration
mass with any balance you select. This allows you
to calibrate the unit yourself without requiring the services
of an outside calibration firm. Best
of all calibration couldn't be simpler. Connect the AC
adapter and warm up the balance with nothing on the weighing
pan. Then simply turn "ON" the balance, allow
the balance to go through the power-up routine and then press
and hold the "CAL" until "CALout" is displayed.
The display walks you through the cal procedure in less than
1 minute. The entire cal is controlled by the user-friendly
keypad. The days of opening the balance and tweaking those
potentiometers and trim resistors to calibrate a scale are gone
with the advent of the digital circuit and EPROM technology
first implemented by A&D Engineer's.
