WeighSouth WBT-5001 delivers powerful weighing performance in a portable digital scale that operates on either AC Adapter or 8 AA batteries. This scale can either be plugged into a power receptacle and operate on AC adapter in the school classroom or if you are in the field collecting sample the scale runs on batteries. The WBT5001 weigh up to 5000 grams and increments in 0.1 gram graduations. The large 7" x 6" stainless steel platform is removable for easy cleaning.

This digital scale intuitive 5 button design offers flexibility for a diverse range of weighing applications yet extremely simple to use. A simple press of the units key changes the unit of measurement from grams > kilograms > ounces, etc.

The tare key allows you tare out the weigh of a container so you can determine the net weight of contents only. When you press the tare whatever weight value shown on the scale's display is set to 0. This comes in handy when measuring components of a mixture. Say you wanted to mix a 1000 gram solution of 10% salt and 90% water by weight. It's simple - place container on the platform and press the TARE key, now add salt to the container until the display reads 100.0 grams and again press the TARE key so the display now reads 0.0 grams. Now add water to the container that already has the salt in it until the display reads 900.0 grams. It's that simple. You can tare multiple times providing you never have more than 5000 grams on the weighing platform.

Science school teachers attempting to outfit their science classroom with new digital scales on a limited budget select WeighSouth WBT5001 since it provides exceptional usability without sacrificing weighing performance.

WeighSouth is a leading provider of digital scales for over 23 years and is located in Asheville, North Carolina. WeighSouth noticed over the years most of the brand names outsourced or moved production of their digital scales to China, yet the never passed along these cost savings to the end user. As use of the internet exploded and consumers shop online looking for the best value for their money we have experienced a dramatic decrease in sales of sales like the Ohaus SP4001 or SP6001 and those sales moving to the WeighSouth WBT-5001. Both scales are produced in China yet the WeighSouth WBT-5001 is substantially less than the Ohaus Scout.

WeighSouth has earned its reputation as a trusted provider of affordable weighing devices that meet virtually any weighing need. WeighSouth backs the WBT Series with a 12 months limited manufacturer warranty.

The WeighSouth WBT-5001 digital scale performance is impressive. This portable digital scale feature a large backlit LCD display, rugged ABS housing, small footprint and simple to use with its 5 keypad design.

Additional features include four (4) leveling feet to allow easy leveling of the scale to ensure accurate weighing, 7" x 6" rectangular stainless steel weigh platform that is removable for easy cleaning, multiple weighing modes that are simple to change by pressing the mode key, backlit LCD display, AC power supply or AA battery power and parts counting function. Simple calibration with a press of the CAL key but it does require you to purchase the OPTIONAL 2000 gram calibration separately.
