After 20 years of producing the Ohaus Scout Series finally Ohaus has attained Legal for Trade Approval on the Scout SJX Series. Ohaus Scout SJX6201N/E is NTEP Approved 6200d Class III weighing instrument with one (1) gram division and a maximum capacity of 6200 grams. The "d"(value of scale division) is 0.1 grams and the"e" (value of verification scale division) is 1 gram. The scale operates on either AC Adapter or four(4) standard AA batteries (not included) for complete portability.
The Ohaus Scout SJX6201NE electronic scale meets the requirements for a legal for trade scale as a Class III weighing device defined in Handbook 44. All this information can be verified by downloading the CofC # 16-015 so you can printout this certificate to check with your Weights & Measurements Inspector if they will allow you to use the SJX6201 for your particular weighing application. Since "e" (value of verification scale division) and "d"(value of scale division) are NOT equal most Weights & Measures Inspectors will only recognize "e" and therefore the SJX6201N/E is legal for trade to 1 gram and NOT ACCEPTABLE for use in commercial sales transactions for the weighing of gold, silver, tobacco or medical marijuana since it is not accurate enough if your typical transaction is 5g, 30g or even 50 grams. Always check with your particular Weights & Measures requirements since State, County and City Inspectors many times have specific requirements calling out that "e" must have a minimum division size of 0.01 gram or less which the SPX6201N/E DOES NOT meet. You can learn more about legal for trade HERE.
Beware of any vendor trying to sell you the Ohaus TAJ Series telling you it is a jewelry scale like the models TAJ2001 or TAJ6000 since none of these TAJ models are NTEP Approved. How about those other guys telling you to buy the Ohaus SPJ Jewelry Scales like the SPJ2001/US or SPJ6001 since they have a special and a super deal. Do they tell you none of the SPJ models are at NTEP Approved and also the SPJ is discontinued and what is left for a warranty?? It is not worth playing games if you are using the scale for a commercial weighing application since Weights & Measures Inspectors are not going to let you use an Ohaus TAJ or SPJ and many times you can get a hefty fine for not using the correct scale. Plus the SJX6201N/E offers more features, better electronics and a more weighing capacity than the TAJ or SPJ that it is best you run away from anyone selling these models.
The SJX6201NE low profile dimensions are 8.8 x 8.0 x 3.5 inches and offers a large 6.7 x 5.5 inch trapezoid weighing platform. Easy-to-use four-button operation makes the Ohaus Scout one of the easiest scales to use.

Stability indicator, stackable design with optional stacking & storage cover, mechanical and software overload/underload protection, low battery indicator, auto shut-off and auto tare. Span calibration mass is NOT included but can be purchased separately. We offer a large selection of calibration weights available at an additional cost. The span calibration for the SJX6201N/E requires 5kg and the linearity calibration requires both a 3000g & 5000g weight. Again, calibration weights are NOT included with the SJX6201NE and must be purchased separately.
Select from a large choice of weight units including grams, pennyweight, ounce, troy ounce and several other weigh modes. There are also addition weighing functions when the scale is set in Non-NTEP mode that includes Parts Counting, Percent Weighing, Check Weighing, Totalization, Density Determination, Display Hold.

If you downloading the CofC # 16-015 and look in the "Standard Features and Options" section you will see the Ohaus Scout SJX6201 uses a Mettler Toledo 30254253 strain gauge load cell. Equipped with superior weighing technology from this Mettler load cell it delivers fast repeatable, reliable weighing results with a stabilization time as fast as 1 second resulting in quick results and increased weighing efficiency.
The superior mechanical overload protection system of the Scout is comprised of a high-strength stainless steel pan and an impact-resistant plastic pan support. This enables the balance to safely withstand loads up to 10 times its rated capacity.
Select from multiple connectivity options available for data logging and communication. Ohaus offers expanded connectivity options including RS232, USB Host, USB Device, Ethernet and Bluetooth module making the Ohaus Scout SJX the most versatile portable digital scale on the market today for data logging and communications.
Bright backlit LCD & 4 button keypad enables efficient operation and ease of use. The sprint leveling bubble located to the right of the display allows you to know whether your scale is level to deliver the most accurate weighing results. The Scout's large backlit display increases readability in low light working conditions, and is easier to view from a distance. The Ohaus Scout SJX6201N/E features large 6.7 x 5.5 inch trapezoid shaped weighing platform provides ample room for just about any samples you will be weighing.
Learn how to calibration the Ohaus Scout digital scale. In the YouTube video above we perform a span calibration that uses two weight values: zero and a weight value at or near the digital scale's capacity. We don't stop here, we also walk you step by step how through the procedure for linearity calibration, which minimizes deviation between actual and displayed weights within the scale's weighing range. Three weight values are used: zero, a weight value within the scale's weighing range which is set to 1000g, and a weight value at or near the balance's specified capacity which is preset at 1500g for the SJX1502. The steps to perform calibration for the SJX1502N/E are similar for the SJX6201N/E and various Ohaus Scout SPX, SKX or SJX models except the value of calibration weight used for calibration is different. The 5 kilogram span calibration weight is NOT included with Ohaus SJX6201N/E. For linearity calibration NOT INCLUDED are the required 5kg and 3 kg weights, but can be purchased at www.calibrationweight.com
The new Ohaus Scouts Portable Balances are their latest generation of weighing perfection.

The Ohaus Scout Scale is equipped with a weigh below hook for weighing below the balance. Before turning the balance over remove the weighing pan and platform support, place the transportation lock in the locked position to prevent damage. To use this feature remove the protective cover for the weigh below opening. The digital scale can be supported using lab jacks or any other convenient method. Ensure the scale is level and secure. Power on the Scout Scale, then use a string or wire to attach items to be weighed. Below weighing is used for weighing magnetic materials, large samples that won't fix on the weighing platform or extremely hot or cold sample that would effect the scale's electronics if placed directly on the weighing platform due to thermal heat/cold transfer. Additional applications would be specific gravity determination.
The Ohaus Scout operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included). There are four(4) adjustable feet to assist in leveling your Ohaus Scout digital scale.
The lockout switch can be used to lock out the Scout Scale to prevent configuration changes. This is required if the scale is used for a commercial weighing application. Your Weights & Measures Inspector will use a wire with lead crimp to prevent unlocking the scale.
The Ohaus Scout Scales have a red transportation lock on sub platform of the balance that needs to be disengaged before you start your weighing. Simply turn the red pointer 90° counter-clockwise.
The impact-resistant pan support safeguard against shock and overloading the balance in rugged and demanding environments. The Scout engineered with superior overload protection rated at 10 times the capacity of the digital scale.
