Mettler Toledo's JL6001GE is the replacement for the JL6001-G/LA01. The new JL6001-GE portable digital scale offers reliable, go-anywhere weighing with a clear, bright weighing display. Resilient, compact and lightweight, this Mettler scale is the ideal solution for accurate results when you have limited space. The scale dimensions are 7 5/8" X 8 7/8" X 2 5/8".
The Mettler JL6001GE Class II NTEP Approved scale has a maximum weighing capacity of 6200 grams with readability to 0.1 grams and comes standard with the RS-232 interface. The RS-232 can be used to connect your Mettler JL6001-GE to the optional Mettler remote display, Mettler printer, or computer (data acquisition software like Winwedge and the RS-232 cable are extra). Also included is the 2000 gram external calibration weight to calibrate your Mettler scale.
The Mettler JL6001GE Legal for Trade Digital Scale NTEP mode features a less precise readability with one gram increments. You can configure the Mettler JL6001-GE to toggle between two weigh units. If you are an antique appraiser weighing sterling silver pieces you can configure your Mettler JL6001GE for grams and pennyweight. Other appraiser may configure the digital scale for pennyweight and troy ounces. The JL6001GE even has a below weighing feature to weigh larger items that will not fit on the weighing pan.
If you are selling directly to customers in your store, then you are required by many weights and measures inspectors to have a secondary display allowing the customer can see the weight in real time. Example, if you've ever bought cheese from a cheeses shop, you know that when the store employee weighs out the cheese, you and the store clerk both have separate displays as the cheese is weighed. By having 2 display the scale is "legal for direct sales". The optional remote display with backlight has a cable length 6 feet and is an additional $99.00.
The JL6001GE from Mettler has a maximum weighing capacity of 6200 grams and the display increments in 0.1 gram divisions. The "d" (value of scale division) is 0.1 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 1 gram. The balance meets the requirements as a Class II weighing device as defined by Handbook 44 and complies with the applicable technical requirements of "NIST Handbook 44: Specifications, Tolerances and Other Technical Requirements for Weighing and Measuring Devices". All this information can be reviewed by downloading the Certificate of Conformance # 15-017.
For most Weights and Measures Inspectors "d" and "e" is always an interesting topic of question. The simple answer is that legally, "d" cannot be considered in a commercial transaction. The Mettler-Toledo JL6001GE scale has d = 0.1 g and e = 1 g, then legally the scale is a 1 gram scale and will be tested and evaluated accordingly. "d" must display on the scale as distinct from all of the other digits, it can be bracketed, it can be grayed out, it can be a smaller font, etc. The Mettler JL6001GE "d" is bracketed, example 4528. grams,
Using a legal for trade scale is only part of the requirement. The scale must also be suitable to the application. You can assess suitability by two basic questions; What is the minimum weight of product to be weighed on the scale? What is the maximum weight of product to be weighed on the scale? The minimum weight will tell you the maximum allowed division size of the scale, the maximum weight determines the required capacity. The scale must normally read 20 divisions for the minimum weight to be sold over it.
1) You expects to weigh out bars of silver at the counter in a range from 20 gram to 6000 grams.
20 gram / 20 divisions = 1 grams / division
Capacity should be at a minimum 6000 grams.
Since the Mettler JL6001GE is legal for trade to one  grams it would be suitable for the example above. But if you were going to sell less than 20 grams the JL6001GE would NOT be accurate enough and we would recommend you purchase the Mettler Toledo JS6002G/A which is 6200g x 0.01g with d = 0.01 g and e = 0.1 grams.
Legal for Trade scales, the application and installation can get complicated and we always recommend you check with your Weights & Measures Inspector if they will accept the digital scale you finally select for your business. We would recommend you forward the Certificate of Conformance #15-017 before you purchase the JL6001GE scale so you know for sure if the digital scale is applicable to your weighing application.
Mettler Toldeo SmartTrack is a dynamic graphic indicator (left side of the LCD) showing the amount of the total weighing range used. You can recognize at a glance whether the load on the digital scale is approaching the maximum weight capacity. This function is extremely useful if you use the tare function. When pressing the tare key you zero out the weight displayed, but many times forgetting the total weight applied to the digital scale's platform. Although you can use the tare key multiple times the cumulative weight applied to the scale's weighing platform can not exceed the weighing capacity of the scale. The dynamic graphic indicator helps you prevent from overloading the Mettler scale and causing damage to the loadcell.
The new Mettler-Toledo JL6001GE offers some new features over the discontinued Mettler JL6001-G/LA01. Now you have the ability to weigh below the electronic scale for specific gravity applications or weighing large objests that can not fit on the weighing platform. The digital jewelry scale offers a stackable cover so if you have multiple scales you can stack them when not in use.
The Mettler Toledo JL6001GE scale's display now shows "MT GREEN" if scale is switched off to standby mode. While in standby mode the digital scale consumes less than 1 watt of power (I guess the environmentalist have gotten to Mettler-Toledo or maybe Al Gore is friendly with Mettler-Toledo since digital scales do not consume a lot of electricity. In today's marketplace place a guess everyone needs to be power responsible. Hmm, doesn't Gore's home uses more than 20 times the national average?
If you download the user menu there are some other features like a service reminder, internal clock for date and time if you were outputting data and needed to comply with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). If you are printing out the weight on the optional Mettler-Toledo printer it will even print out the "temperature" the scale was unused in so I assume this means the scale has an internal thermistor, but if you download the Mettler-Toledo JL-G Jewelry Scales User Manual you can read more about this function.
Some of these functions really are not applicable to a jewelry balance or jewelry weighing requirements, but these features are included in the JL6001GE since Mettler uses the same scale to sell to the laboratory and scientific marketplace under the model PL6001E.

Below are images of the discontinued JL602-GLA01. The replacement - Mettler JL602GE is similar and we are trying to show you the optional remote display for reference.
Although the JL602-GLA01 scale is legal for trade, if you plan on doing something like selling jewelry directly to customers in your store, then you are required by weights and measures to have a secondary display that the customer can see in real time. Another example might be if you've ever bought meat from a grocery store, you know that when the butcher weighs out the meat, you and the butcher both have separate displays as the meat is weighed. This scale is legal for trade, but it is NOT "legal for direct sales" unless you buy the Remote display with backlight, cable length 6 feet for $99.00. FOR THE REMOTE DISPLAY, YOU MUST HAVE A METTLER SCALE WITH AN RS-232 INTERFACE.
