Determining the length of cable, hose, chain & rope. One might ask how
could a counting scale determine the length? Measure out 25 feet of cable
> enter a part count of 25 pieces > and now your counting scale will determine
the feet of cable on the scale. The A&D HC-30Ki Counting Scale works
great for counting 14/3 romex cable typically used to wire homes.

The HC-i Series Counting Scales offer easy to use sampling routines. Enter
the count mode by predetermined sample sizes or enter the piece weight via the
1-9 keypad entry. Audible alarm lets you know when a predetermined count
has been reached implementing the count present feature. The HC-i Series
even has memory to store up to 99 different average piece weights for fast recall
of standard parts you'll be counting everyday.
You can weigh up to 60 lbs (30kg) and the scale increments in 0.01 lb (0.005kg)
graduations. We like to tell customers if you want to count parts that weigh
greater than the weights of a nickel or quarter that you'll have no problem finding
an accurate piece count. Here is another great application for the HC-30Ki
- counting quarter for a car washer, arcade or any coin operated machine that
takes quarters only.
Unlike some other counting scales on the market the HC-i Electronic Counting Scales
offers an accumulator function enabling you to track all pieces counted for those
larger jobs. Another feature is the Count Pre-Setting that can be programmed
to cause an alarm to sound when the number of items counted on the scale meets
or exceeds the number stored in memory.
Try to avoid purchasing a counting scale with more capacity than you typically
will be needing. If 90% of the time you will be counting no more than 15,000
grams of parts then a 15,000 gram capacity counting scales is a better choice
than a 30,000 capacity scale since you may be sacrificing resolution which is
critical to the accuracy of your counts. In those situations where the items
being counting will weigh greater than the capacity of the scale, you simply count
half the items and then the second half. A&D recommends the average
piece weight (APW) must be greater than or equal to the readability of the scale.
We offer 4 different models of the HC-i digital counting scale and you can view
a comparative table here.
The A&D HC-30KI has a lot of nice feature, but the price may be too expensive for your budget. If money is tight and you want a simple basic counting scale then we would recommend you take a look at the ECS 66LB Counting Scale here.
