Ohaus Scout SPX223 is one of newest additions to the expanding line of the Ohaus Scout Series. This is a economy entry level milligram digital scale is built using strain gauge technology and offers 220 grams weighing capacity and increments in 0.001 gram divisions. Now just because the scale increments in 0.001 gram divisions does not mean it is accurate to 1 milligram. Ohaus states the repeatability as ± 2 divisions and linearity as ± 3 divisions. In other words the precision is ± 2 milligrams and accuracy is ± 3 milligrams and this is Ohaus testing the scale in the most ideal environment - perfect temperature, humidity, zero electronic noise interference, rock solid stable surface, perfectly level, etc so it would be extremely difficult for you to achieve those results.

Some people might say how can the SPX223 be priced so low? Again the SPX223 is built with a loadcell using strain gauge technology. Many people just don't have the money to spend for the higher quality and better performance found in a electromagnetic force restoration balance like the Sartorius Entris323-1S or Sartorius Practum 213-1S.

Ohaus isn't the only company now selling low cost milligram scale using strain gauge technology. MyWeigh has the MyWeigh GemPro250 scale and Adam offers the Adam Equipment PGL203 milligram scale which are both strain gauge loadcell scales. We even have our own EPB-103, EPB-203 and EPB-303 strain gauge milligram scales, but our best advice is DON'T buy a strain gauge loadcell milligram scale unless you absolutely have no money to spend for a quality milligram balance using electromagnetic force restoration weighing technology since strain gauge scales drift. Look Sartorius stopped selling the AY303 milligram strain gauge scale since they did not want to ruin their reputation for building the finest weighing devices in the world.

So if you don't have the money to spend for a electromagnetic force restoration balance the Ohaus SPX223 could be the answer, but understand what you are buying. If you don't understand the difference between strain gauge and electromagnetic force restoration balance you should watch our video on youtube "Magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge digital scale" or "Strain gauge loadcell vs electromagnetic force restoration". A strain gauge can work fine for weighing static loads and you quickly take the weight reading and use the draftshield, but the numbers are going to start to creep if you wait too long and the scale will perform horrible if you are trickling gunpowder just forget it. I don't know how to stress it any more but buy electromagnetic force restoration balance and if you don't have enough money stay just wait until you can save more.

The Ohaus SPX223 offers a large choice of optional communication options. You can select from the OPTIONAL RS232 Interface Kit, USB Device Interface Kit, Bluetooth Interface Kit or Ethernet Interface Kit. The Scout SPX223 scale dimensions are 8.8 x 8.0 x 3.5 inches and has a 3.7 inch diameter weighing platform.

The Ohaus SPX offers 10 weighing modes - Grams, Kilograms, Pounds, Pound:Ounces, Ounces, Newtons, Carats, Grains, Pennyweight and Troy Ounces. For weighing applications the Ohaus Scout SPX models include Counting, Percent Weighing, Display Hold, Totalization and Check Weigh.

The Ohaus SPX Scales also feature adjustable feet and level bubble to help level your digital scale to provide the most accurate weighing results. The unique windshield protects the sample from external influences, increasing the speed and repeatability of measurements.

Additional OPTIONAL accessories include a kensington lock to prevent theft.

Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout SPX continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout, Scout II and Scout Pro products. Featuring easy-to-use four-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included) for complete portability.

Features include ABS housing, stainless steel pan, weigh below hook, transportation lock, manual calibration lock switch, security slot, adjustable leveling feet, illuminated up-front level indicator. Stability indicator, mechanical and software overload/underload protection, low battery indicator, auto shut-off and auto tare. Span calibration weight is included with the Scout SPX223.

See the entire Ohaus Scout SPX models HERE.

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SPX223 is the AND Weighing FX200i comes standard with an RS-232 interface if you want to send weighing results to a computer. A&D offers WinCT data communication software to download free while Ohaus offers no free software. In addition, the A&D FXi precision balances are backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus Scout SPX223 only has a 2 year warranty. Schools are always calling us asking which scale offers the longer warranty and the 5 year warranty is something they really like.

If price is absolutely the #1 issue and you are in search of the lowest cost 0.001g digital scales then we have a couple of other strain gauge digital scales that are made in China - the Ohaus SPX223 is also made in China. These milligram scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SPX223, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified milligram digital scale, with less features we recommend our own EPB-103, EPB-203 and EPB-303 strain gauge milligram scales offering 100 gram, 200 grams, 300 grams respectively all incremental in 1 milligram divisions for much, much less money.

The Scout SPX223 is built using strain gauge technology. The strain gauge can give you fair weighing results for weighing static loads, but can drift much more due to temperature variations caused by excitation energy used with a load cell strain gauge weigh sensor. You'll get better performance, linearity and repeatability with an electromagnetic weigh sensor like those found in the A&D Weighing FX200i, Sartorius Entris323-1S or Practum213-1S but this weigh sensor design cost more money. If you don't understand then watch this video HERE demonstrating a magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge scale.

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 SPX223 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 SPX223 but the 100 gram calibration weight required for linearity calibration is NOT INCLUDED but can be purchased at www.calibrationweight.com

Works with PC running Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows 7. The USB Interface module and DOES NOT include any data acquisition software.
 
Ohaus Scout digital scale weigh below hook
The Ohaus Scout Scale is equipped with a weigh below hook for weighing below the balance. 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.
 
Ohaus milligram scale bottom side
The Ohaus Scout operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included). There are four(4) adjustable feet to assist in leveling your Ohaus Scout digital scale.
 
Ohaus Scout weighing platform lockout
The Ohaus Scout Scales have a red transportation lock on sub platform of the balance that needs to be disengaged before you start your weighing. Simply turn the red pointer 90° counter-clockwise.

The impact-resistant pan support safeguard against shock and overloading the balance in rugged and demanding environments. The Scout engineered with superior overload protection rated at 10 times the capacity of the digital scale.

Before you make your final decision be sure to see the New Sartorius Entris323-1S. The Entris is made in Germany and production will soon be moved to Sartorius' manufacturing facility in Colorado. Watch the video above on the Sartorius Entris Milligram Balance and how easy calibration is when you purchase the optional calibration mass. The Sartorius Entris 3 decimal place balances offer a round circular draftshield with removable top. See the quick settling time as we place calibration weights on the weighing platform.
 
The Ohaus Scout series are all strain gauge weigh sensor. If you want better weighing performance with a Magnetic Force Restoration weigh sensor consider the A&D FX-120i, FX-200i or FX-300i. These A&D Weighing precision balances are backed with a 5 year limited manufacturer warranty which is a lot longer than Ohaus 2 year limited warranty.
 
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. Quintix is convenience in operation, calibration and data transfer. Even Practum features weighing technology at the highest quality level
 
Be sure to review this youtube video for a better understanding the performance you get from strain gauge digital scale verses magnetic force restoration (MFR) balance. If you are weighing static objects a strain gauge loadcell might work good enough for your weighing task, but if you are weight loss or gain over time you really need to find money money and buy a magnetic force restoration milligram balance.
 
If your budget is very limited and you can't affordable a magnetic force restoration balance and you have decided you are gong to buy a strain gauge milligram scale and the SPX223 for Ohaus is still too expensive we have alternative. We offer the EPB103 (100g x 0.001g), EPB-203 (200g x 0.001g) and EPB-303 (300g x 0.001g). The video above highlights the general features of the EBP203 milligram scale. These are affordable milligram scale ideal for the science classroom or hobbyist weighing small samples.
