We have NO remaining stock on the Sartorius AY412 and the manufacturer has discontinued production. The information on this web page is for reference only since again we have no remaining stock on the AY412 and Sartorius has terminated production on the AY-412 as of January 2013.
Beware of anyone trying to sell you the AY412 since the manufacturer warranty has ran out and there are no parts and accessories available from Sartorius. There are plenty of other alternative models available and if you need help give us a call. We just despise seeing some people selling AY412 to people as brand new when you are buying a scale with NO WARRANTY and NO AVAILABLE parts or accessories AVAILABLE FROM SARTORIUS. Don't be hoodwinked stay away from the AY412 and always buy a current production model.
Sartorius closest replacement would be the Practum 612-1S but this is a much more expensive digital scale and the Sartorius Practum does not operate off of standard alkaline batteries. The Sartorius Practum 612-1S (8.6 x 14.1 x 3.75 in) is also a much larger scale verses the AY412 (7.4 x 10.4 x 3.1 in) thus limited its use as a portable field scale.

Sartorius owned Acculab and shut down the brand in Dec of 2010. The AY412 by Sartorius is the exact same balance as the the Acculab VIC412, except they changed the color of the plastic from gray to white, changed the overlay keypad and changed the display slightly and, of course, raised the price.
This model AY412 educational balance also replaces the Sartorius ELT402 scale.

feet included on all milligram models.
The MyWeigh i601 is a nice alternative to consider if you are looking to replace a broken AY412. In the video above see the MyWeigh i601 and how to calibrate this digital scale. The i601 now has an LCD display with additional weighing modes like lbs, dwt, oz, tael and more.

Watch video how to configure your Sartorius AY digital scale. We show you how to change the primary weigh mode to a different weigh unit other than the factory default of grams only. The user manual doesn't tell you how to change the primary weigh mode but our video does. Below in the table are the codes needed to change the primary weigh unit.
Keep those cordless phones, smart phones and other electronic devices that emit radio frequencies since it really can effect the performance of your digital scale.
