Beware of anyone trying to sell you the AY4000 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 AY4000 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 AY4000 and always buy a current production model.
The Sartorius AY4000 has been discontinued and no longer in production as of January 2013. The Sartorius AY line was phased-out and replaced with the new Practum 5100-1S. The Practum balances are an entirely new cutting edge design offering superior weighing technology over the AY4000. We have no remaining stock on the AY4000 and all information displayed herein is for archival and support purposes only.
Sartorius AY-4000 offers 4100 grams weighing capacity with readability to 1 gram and comes standard with the AC adapter (calibration weight is an optional accessory). Unrivalled in its performance, made in the USA.

and scales for Educational, Industrial,
Laboratories, Research, Postal, Special
Applications and more. The Sartorius AY-4000 digital scale comes with a 4100
g capacity and 1 g readability. Whether weighing
multiple samples with totaled results,

Sartorius owned Acculab and shut down the brand in Dec of 2010. The AY4000 by Sartorius is the exact same balance as the Acculab VIC4kg, 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.
Superior Engineering for Better Performance and Durability
The ultra-fast microprocessor gives enhanced

manufactured for measurement uniformity and greater
durability, and each sensor is computer
optimized for maximum performance,

repeatability. These M-Prove milligram balances have incomparable overload protection for
years of service in all weighing
The display on each scale is a white back-lit display for easy viewing in
all ambient weighing conditions.
Unique State of the Art Features
All M-Prove series milligram scales are stackable for convenient, safe storage
that saves valuable counter space.
They have an integrated weight chamber, which simplifies
and the reversible weighing pan allows greater
flexibility in weighing samples.
In all there are 13 models of scales (enhanced by two milligram
units). The rugged housing is made of ABS plastic with
maximum overload protection, and the protective flip-down and removable
plastic cover is great for protection of the scale in shipping and
stackable storage. The balance comes with integrated external calibration weights
on models with capacity of 710 grams
and below. Applications include: Counting, Percent
Weighing, Totaling, Display Hold, Specific

As of 2013, Sartorius AY4000 has been discontinued by Sartorius and there is no direct replacement in the same price range. The closest to the AY4000 would be the Sartorius Practum 5100-1S listing for $900 which is too expensive for most people when you can buy the AND EK-6000i, A&D SK5001, Ohaus SPX8200 or MyWeigh KD7000 for a lot less money. All information displayed herein is for support purposes only.
The MyWeigh i5500 is an affordable alternative to the AY4000 and provides 10 times the readability (1g verses 0.1g). My Weigh ibalances offer a quality weighing instrument at an extremely low cost as a result of the huge production volumes. The value MyWeigh iBalances offers is one of the reasons Sartorius exited the low cost digital scale market focused on the educational and consumer marketplace.
Once you watch this video you understand MyWeigh Scales offers unbelievable value.
If you are looking for greater weighing capacity check out the EPB10K (10,000g x 0.1g). In the YouTube video above we give a general overview of the Electronic Precision Balance EPB10K weighing functions & features.
