Before you make your final decision see the Ohaus Scout SJX1502N/E. The Ohaus Scout SJX Series is targeted to the jewelry industry which is a very price sensitive market so Ohaus has a much lower list price on the SJX verses the Ohaus Scout SPX Series is sold to the lab market and is priced much higher. You can buy the SJX1502N/E for over $120 LE$$ than the SPX422 but instead of 420 gram capacity you can get 1500 gram weighing capacity.
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 SPX422 and various Ohaus Scout SPX, SKX or SJX models except the value of calibration weight used for calibration is different. The 200 gram span calibration weight is included with Ohaus SPX422 but the 400 gram calibration weight required for linearity calibration is NOT INCLUDED but can be purchased at www.calibrationweight.com

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.
