AND Weighing GF-1200 easily connects to a PC or the 8121B data printer and with WinCT software, so you can import the data into your PC software, such as Windows XP Word/Excel software. Other manufacturer's charge you $100's more for either their balance communication software or a third party software but not with the A&D you can download WinCT balance software free.

The AND GF1200 is external calibration. When the balance is first installed or when it is moved to another location, it should be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. We always recommend you purchase an optional external 1kg calibration weight so you can perform the external calibration. Calibration is simply a press of the "Cal" button and then placing the external 1000g calibration weight on the weighing platform. Another option is to upgrade to A&D GX2000 with motorized internal calibration weight.

Every location in the world is positioned differently to "magnetic north" and therefore the acceleration of gravity is slightly different. In addition, barometric pressure effects the acceleration of gravity depending upon your location's altitude to sea level. This is why the user manual always states to calibrate the balance prior to weighing.

A&D Weighing is one of the few balance manufacturers to offer an optional GX11 draftshield for a 0.01 gram precision balance. If you are weighing in an environment that is less than ideal this shield prevents air currents from causing the balance pan to move, which results in fluctuating readings. By protecting the balance weighing platform with a draft shield a stable constant mass reading can be observed. The three sliding glass doors allows for easy access from the right, left or top.

The stabilization time of one second is achieved when FAST is selected for the response rate to read a displayed value after a sample is placed on the pan. Other features include: a data memory function to store up to 40 sets of weighing data; Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) data output using the standard RS-232C serial interface; Large bright vacuum fluorescent display which lets you read the display from wherever you are working, even in a dimly lit area; Comparator Indicators displaying the comparison results; Capacity Indicator, displaying the weight value in percentage relative to the weighing capacity; Hold Function, provided for weighing a moving object such as an animal; Underhook, for measuring density and weighing magnetic materials; Density Mode, for calculating the density of a solid; Reference Card, provided for a quick reference to the balance operation; IP54 level dust & splash; Patented Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS)

The GF-1200 also can be purchase in a NTEP / Legal for Trade version(GF-1200N) for an additional $120 by selecting this option in the options section towards the bottom of this web page - "N" Version designates NTEP (Legal for Trade), but again this is an additional $120 option.

If you need an NTEP balance for less money then review any of the FXi-N NTEP digital scale (FX-1200iN, FX-2000iN or FX-3000iN).

High performance and quality is shown with a 5 year manufacturer warranty.Review the manufacturer warranty from other manufacturer's and you'll see their warranty is a lot less. Plus if you ever need repair A&D Weighing has two facilities in the USA located in Georgia and California for fast turn around.

If you prefer to buy a balance that comes standard with USB interface take a look at the Practum 2102-1S or Quintix 2102-1S. The A&D GF & GX Series come standard with a serial RS-232 interface and there is an optional GX-02 USB interface, but it is only uni-directional. Most people want bi-directional so they can send and received data from the balance, with A&D you can only send data when purchased with GX-02 USB.

Are you working in a pharmaceutical lab and need to comply with stringent FDA requirements and must comply with SQmin? Be sure to review Secura 2102-1S since none of the A&D GF models allow you to enable SQmin nor additional safety weighing features like the ability to program the minimum weight value so when you attempt to weigh samples below a set threshold the weight reading is displayed on screen in red. Secura is one of the world's most technologically advance weighing instrument we offer and also has built-in level verification, password protection, and memory tracking is also available. The Sartorius Practum, Quintix and Secura all feature a touch screen user interface for easy balance configuration.

We understand purchasing a quality lab balance is a major capital expense and if you have any questions give us a call and one of our weighing experts can discuss your weighing application and get you the most affordable balance for your weighing needs.

If price is absolutely the #1 factor in you purchasing a 1210 gram balance with 0.01g readability designed with a force restoration magnetic motor then we would recommend you take a look at the AND FX-1200i precision balance or new ENTRIS2202-1S.

The GF-Series offers all the spectacular features of the GX-Series except the internal motorized calibration feature has been removed.  Therefore, the GF1200 lab balance has the same display, features,  ip-65 rating, SHS technology except there is no internal calibration mass

A&D Scale Warranty

ISO 9000 procedures favor the calibration of balances with an external certified calibration mass.  A balance with internal motorized calibration weight is a nice feature, but costly.  Most balances with the internal calibration feature also offer external calibration.  External calibration is vital since it is much more convenient to send out the external calibration mass for recalibration/certification verses the costly fee of having the internal calibration mass removed from the balance and sent out for re-calibration.

In addition, if you own several of the same balances just one external traceable calibration is needed for ISO compliance.

Precision Weighing Balances always recommends that you purchase the calibration mass with any balance you select.  This allows you to calibrate the unit yourself without requiring the services of an outside calibration firm.  Best of all calibration couldn't be simpler.  Connect the AC adapter and warm up the balance with nothing on the weighing pan.  Then simply turn "ON" the balance, allow the balance to go through the power-up routine and then press and hold the "CAL" until "CALout" is displayed.  The display walks you through the cal procedure in less than 1 minute.  The entire cal is controlled by the user-friendly keypad.  The days of opening the balance and tweaking those potentiometers and trim resistors to calibrate a scale are gone with the advent of the digital circuit and EPROM technology first implemented by A&D Engineer's.

WinCT
All A&D GF-Series come standard with built-in RS-232c and A&D WinCT balance communication software on CD-Rom to interface your balance with your computer.

Watch the review of the FX-3000i from AND Weighing. The FX-i is the economy model A&D Weighing offers for those customers not willing to pony up the money for the AND GF Series. The FZ-i is the economy model A&D offers for those customers not willing to pony up the money for the A&D Weighing GX Series. The A&D FZ-2000i might be an option if the GX2000 precision balance is too expensive for your budget.
 
Before you make your final decision for purchasing your next precision laboratory balance be sure to see the Sartorius Entris Series. Lightening fast weighing results, high-contrast backlit LCD and a spirit bubble located to the left of the weighing display so you know your balance is level to measure optimum accuracy. Combining affordability with a versatile design the Sartorius Entris is the affordable standard for precision 2 decimal place weighing.

Take your pick either motorized internal calibration with the Sartorius Entris2202i-1S, 3202i-1S, 4202i-1S or 6202i-1S lab balances. Want to spend a lot less and willing to give up motorized internal calibration then review these Entris balances that are external calibration only - Sartorius Entris2202-1S, 3202-1S, 4202-1S or 6202-1S. These Sartorius Entris hundredth of a gram balances offer a large 7.1" square weighing platform. See the quick settling time as we place calibration weights on the weighing platform.
 
Sartorius Secura Laboratory Balance offer advanced weighing features compliant with the USP minimum sample weight requirements. The balance's display indicates when the minimum sample weight is below the required minimum weight limit.

Secura guarantees high reliability and security in regulated areas for the most common weighing ranges. Sartorius Quintix is convenience in operation, calibration and data transfer. Even Sartorius Practum features weighing technology at the highest quality level.
 
Are you looking for greater weighing capacity? How about a scale that operates on standard AA batteries or AC adapter? Then check out the Ohaus SJX1502N/E since this is a nice scale and it will cost you A LOT LE$$ money than the GF-1200. See as we unbox and review all the features of the new Ohaus Scout SJX1502. What comes with the scale, how do you setup the scale, where do the batteries go, found the underhook?? All your questions can be answered by watching this informative YouTube video above.
