ECS-1200 Electronic Compact Scale offers 1200 gram weighing capacity and increments in 0.1 gram divisions. Select from 4 different weighing units - grams, ounces, pounds or kilogram. Rugged ABS housing, quality load cell weigh sensor and backed with a 2 year limited manufacturer warranty. This is a low priced digital scale packed with features to meet most customer's basic weighing needs for a 1200 gram general use digital scale.

The schools, small businesses and consumers are all looking for the best value for their money and the ECS Series is fitting the bill for most. This is a generic brand direct from Asia, but this is where 99% of the electronic scales are made now a days. Asia has advanced dramatically over the years in technology and quality. We decided to market this generic brand since we believe the motto "if you can't tell the difference why pay the difference".

You're looking at a simply basic digital gram scale with a beautiful backlit display to make reading weighing results in even poorly lighted areas easy to see. Operates on 6 AA batteries (not included) or AC Adapter (included). The four buttons allows practical anyone to use the scale in minutes verses reading some intense complicated manual that comes with competitive models.

This scale's features include, auto backlit display, large 7.0" x 6.2" stainless steel platform, four weight modes (Grams, Ounces, Pounds, kilogram) and TARE key to zero out a container.

Be sure to scroll completely down this web page since we have an ton of information to help you better understand all the features and how the scale works.

The ECS1200 is truly a value oriented product designed for the school science classroom, hobbyist, or light industrial weighing applications. Choose from over 5 different models in the ECS Series HERE.

The Green Backlit display makes viewing the weighing results easy on your eyes even in poorly lit areas.  If you don't like the backlit or want to conserve battery power you can shut off the backlit function.

Large removable stainless steel weigh pan for easy clean up.  The scale design incorporates a 4 post platform for better weighing results especially with corner weighing.  Many other brands are designed with only a single post in the center resulting in greater eccentric weighing errors.  You can determine how much the eccentricity of the load will affect the weighing results on the scale by weighing the same weight at the corners of the weighing platform.  The 4 post design has a greater manufacturing cost and this is why many of the major brands of scale manufacturers cut corners to maximize their profits while diminishing your accurate weighing results.

Why buy the ECS Scale over all the other digital scales on the market? There are hundreds, if not thousands of companies manufacturing 5,000 to 10,000 division scales. Japanese and German made scales are one of the bests but cost 4 times more too. Why ECS is different?

For the lower cost 5,000 – 10,000 division plastic scales, there are two ways to build the products.

  1. The lowest cost way is to take a consumer 1,000 – 2,000 division kitchen scales, add more resolutions on the software, increase the filtering so that the updates are slower and increase the zero capture software internal count larger so that the display numbers do not fluctuate as much. The weight may not be accurate but the perception of the weight (that is stable) is accurate because the software does a wider averaging and constantly ignoring small changes in internal counts.
  2. The industry standard for 1 display resolution or 1d is a minimum of 10 internal counts, the more the better, showing more stability and accuracies. On kitchen and consumer scales, the typical internal count is 30,000 to 60,000 counts, so they are normally good for lower accuracy and resolution weighing. To counter this problem, kitchen scale manufacturers use negative AD (counts starting from minus zero, and when weight is added, it crosses the zero point before moving to the positive counts).
  3. Kitchen scales also use very cheap load cells costing that is about half a dollar. The cells are manufactured in batch of thousands and batch temperature compensated to typically +5 to 35 degree C only.
  4. Kitchen scales also do not use AD convertor, they have a limited memory space microchip that does the AD conversion, AD expand electronics and simple internal weight calibration software or some of them use very low speed AD. This is also the reason why many kitchen scales cannot be field calibrated because the calibration routine is burned into the microchip.
  5. This is the reason why there are so many extremely low cost 10,000 division scales in the market – because they are kitchen scales in the guts.
  6. The other way is to use industrial scale components.


The ECS is not a kitchen scale, it uses an industrial type AD processor that not only allows you to calibrate the scale, it also allows you to calibrate the scale with any known weights. Scales are like a spring because the internal aluminum load cells (whether kitchen or industrial) all have a cycle life. The industry standard for sensors on kitchen scales are designed with 50,000 weighing cycles and for industrial scales 100,000 to 1 million cycles. Like all springs, the material will get fatigue and lose a little of the “spring” characteristics over time and over many weighing. Therefore scales should be calibrated between 6 months to a year depending on usage. Even if it is not used, scales need to be calibrated too because of effects of environment like moisture, temperature change on the aluminum counterforce and also the properties and viscosity on glue on the resistive strain gages may change. With the ECS balance, if the scale is no longer accurate, you can calibrate it easily without even test weights. For an example, if you have a 1200g x 0.1g scale and at 900g, it showed 898g. For most scales, you will need to have an exact 1kg test weight for calibration. With ECS, you can put a bag of coins on another scale which is accurate, get the weight, for an example 678.0g, then key in this weight on the ECS, transfer the coins on the ECS and the calibration is done.
