6100 gram with 0.01 gram readability, bright vacuum florescent display, RS-232 and lightening fast and built with the A&D Super Hybrid Sensor weighing platform. When purchased with A&D's optional AD-8121B scale printer you'll have GLP, GMP, and ISO compliance by outputting the date, time, balance ID number, serial number, and calibration data.
Connect this high precision balance to your computer using WinCT Software. Connect the RS232 interface to either your computer's serial port, or purchase the optional USB to RS-232 adapter. Using WinCT balance communication software, automatically log your bench scale's readings on your computer.
The AND GF6100 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 5kg calibration weight so you can perform the external calibration. Calibration is simply a press of the "Cal" button and then placing the external 5000g calibration weight on the weighing platform. Another option is to upgrade to A&D GX6100 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.
The weighing platform measures 6.5 x 6.5 inches. 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)
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.
GF6100 can be purchased with the optional GX11 draftshield with three sliding glass doors allows for easy access from the right, left or top. 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.
If you prefer to buy a balance that comes standard with USB interface take a look at the Quintix 6102-1S. 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 6102-1S 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.
If the GF6100 is too expensive for your budget be sure to review new ENTRIS6202-1S that delivery superior value and spectacular performance.
We understand purchasing an precision 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.

offers all the spectacular features of the GX-Seriesexcept the internal motorized
calibration feature has been removed. Therefore, the
GF6100 laboratory balance has the samedisplay, features,
ip-65 rating, SHS technology except
there is no internal calibration mass.
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.
addition, if you own several of the same balances just one external
traceable calibration is needed for ISO compliance.
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.

Before you make your final selection be sure to see the neW ENTRIS6202-1S since we have special promotional pricing on the Entris6202-1S allowing you to buy it for A LOT LE$$ than the GF6100. The AND GF6100 is a great precision balance, but people are always calling for available lower cost equivalent and the Entris 6202-1S is something you should review.
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-5000i might be an option if the GX6100 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 Entris4202i-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 Entris4202-1S 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.
