Adam PGL3002 precision scale has a weighing capacity of 3000 grams and a readability of 0.01 grams. PGL precision balances offers durability and precision coming together
for a whole new class of digital scale. The 7.6" x 7.6" stainless steel weighing pan provides a slick area to weigh samples. Non-slip adjustable feet provide a friction anchor to compensate for accidental bumps to the precision balance. Modern low profile design and a color coded, sealed pad add to a simple weighing experience. Auto sleep and power down function to save battery life. A built-in rechargeable battery and AC adapter allow you to
take your PGL balance anywhere, even out to the field. Adam
Equipment’s unique ShockProtect™ overload protection keeps
the weighing mechanism safe from unwanted overloads like book
bags and heavy hands.
Adam Equipment PGL3002 is a low cost gram scale since it's weigh sensor is built using strain gauge technology. The strain gauge can give you good 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. Typically if you trickle say like table salt in small quantities to the weighing platform the auto tracking software thinks it is drift in the loadcell verses actually weight added to the weighing pan and the weighing results don't change. You'll get better performance, linearity and repeatability with an electromagnetic weigh sensor like those found in the Adam PGW2502e, A&D FX-2000i or Sartorius GW6202 but this weigh sensor design cost more money. If you're on a tight budget and your weighing results aren't for a super critical application then the AE PGL3002 might be your best choice.

PGL balances combine the solid construction and fundamental
features of a high-precision top loader with the versatility of
operation making this a truly portable digital scale.
If you are a jewelry store, pawn shop or a medical marijuana dispensary and were told by a Weights & Measures Inspector that you need a Legal for Trade Class II Scale the Adam Equipment PGL3002 is NOT Legal for Trade and we recommend you purchase the A&D FX3000iN Class 2 NTEP Approved Balance.

If the PGL3002 is too expensive for your budget then review the MyWeigh ibalance i3100 scale. The MyWeigh i3100 uses the same strain gauge weigh sensor design that we really refrain from recommending for digital scale with greater than 60,000 divisions since eventually you'll have a weighing application that the drift of the load cell weigh sensor will hinder your weighing expectations. Again watch our video here so you know what to expect in a strain gauge loadcell vs electromagnetic force restoration.
To determine the amount of divisions you divide the capacity of the scale divided by readability. So for the PGL3002 3000g x 0.01g is a 300,000 division scale (3000/0.01). There are limitations of a strain gauge, but for scale manufacturer's quest to bring lower cost scales to the marketplace we see strain gauges stretched to unreal limits. If your budget forces you to buy a strain gauge scale you really should buy the calibration weight to calibrate the scale daily.
