Ohaus Pioneer PA224 offers 220 grams weighing capacity and increments in 0.1 milligram divisions. The new Pioneer PA224 replaces the discontinued Ohaus PA214. This analytical balance features a 3.5 inch diameter pan with an RS232 interface. The RS232 allows connection to an Ohaus printer or a computer. Sends Balance ID plus spaces for recording User ID, Project ID, time and date.
The PA224 Pioneer lab balance is designed for basic routine weighing in a variety of laboratory, industrial and education applications with the right combination of performance and features that delivers uncomplicated performance for all your basic weighing needs.
When the Ohaus PA224 balance is first installed, or is moved to another location, the lab balance must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. The Ohaus PA224 requires the purchase of a optional external 200 gram calibration weight to perform calibration. We always recommend that you purchase the calibration weight when you purchase the balance. You can learn more about calibration weights and the tolerances at calibrationweight.com. If you want internal motorized calibration see the Ohaus Pioneer PA224C
Ohaus Pioneer PA224 features weighing, parts counting, percent weighing, animal weighing a density determination weighing functions. An optional density kit is available or use the built-in weigh below hook allowing you to suspend an item below the balance to calculate density/specific gravity.
All models are built on a solid metal diecast base and use a magnetic force restoration weigh sensor, not a cheap strain gauge that is prone to drifting with the numbers on the display moving even though you added nothing to the weighing platform. We get so many calls from end users saying they purchased some no name brand made and they hate their balance since it is a strain gauge. If you don't understand then watch this video HERE demonstrating a magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge scale.
The large draftshield features sliding top and side doors. To address the ease of cleaning requirement often expressed by routine users, Pioneer's draftshield has been designed with easy to remove doors and panels. Disassembly takes just seconds and all components including the balance housing can be quickly wiped clean.
Periodic cleaning made easy helps avoid sample contamination and extends product life. In addition, a standard in-use cover provides added protection against accidental spillage and helps minimize the chance of damage to the display and keypad.
Should breakage occur, each replacement door or panel can be installed in seconds. A standard in-use cover provides added protection against accidental spillage.
Pioneer has been designed with an up-front level indicator, so that users can quickly ensure the balance is level prior to use. Selectable environmental settings to help adapt the balance to real life working conditions, Pioneer is designed with selectable environmental settings. When working in harsh environments, the balance can be adjusted to compensate for vibrations and other disturbances. Conversely, the balance can be adjusted for working in slow filling applications where sensitivity is a must.
Be sure to see the Scientech ZSA Series featuring 80 to 210 gram with 0.1mg resolutions. When US government customers call us saying they must comply with the Buy American Act clause the only similar balance we offer to the PA224 that is made in America would be the Scientech ZSA210. FAR Part 25.003 requirements state that domestic end products are preferred over foreign end products, and the Ohaus Pioneer is not made in the USA, but instead China.

Easy to Clean Analytical Draftshield - Pioneer's draftshield is designed with all glass panels, including three sliding doors. All panels are easy to remove and replace, and together with a stainless steel bottom, make it fast and easy to clean.
Space-saving draftshield improves user experience and accessibility. The two piece, top-mounted draftshield doors open wide on both sides, providing ample room for sample placement, and also reduce the footprint of the draftshield in the rear of the balance when open.
Wide door entry provides unobstructed access and allows larger weighing vessels to be easily placed on the pan, reducing the chance of accidental spillage.
Large 3.5 inch stainless steel weighing platform. The 3 door glass windshield features a top windshield door opening. Stability, accuracy, and fast operation ensure optimal weighing results in routine weighing tasks. Ohaus Pioneer delivers stable and reliable weighing results for routine weighing tasks

The new Ohaus Pioneer Pro Series features a red overlay keypad display and bright backlit LCD display provides ample lighting, making the display very easy-to-view in laboratories with dim lighting. The predecessor model, Ohaus PA214, had a blue overlay and no backlight display. The spirit bubble is located to the right of the weighing display so you can verify at a quick glance that your balance is level for optimum accuracy. The Ohaus Pioneer Pro Series now features the "Density Determination" weigh function. These great new upgrades we believe will increase the demand even more for this basic entry level analytical balance.
On the rear of the balance you'll find a built-in RS232 allows connection to an Ohaus SF40A impact printer or a computer. Sends Balance ID plus spaces for recording User ID, Project ID, time and date.
Integral security bracket allows you to secure your balance to a workstation to prevent unwarranted movement or theft
The 2 adjustable rear leveling feet level indicator helps to ensure that the Ohaus balance is level.
The Pioneer Pro balance is now equipped with a weigh below hook for weighing below the balance. Before turning the balance over, remove the pan and draft shield elements to prevent damage. The black removable protective cover is the weigh below underhook opening. To use this feature, remove power from the balance, then remove the protective cover for the weigh below opening. The balance can be supported using lab jacks or any other convenient method. Ensure the balance is level and secure. Power on the balance, 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 balance's electronics if placed directly on the weighing platform due to thermal heat/cold transfer. Additional applications would be specific gravity determination.
An OPTIONAL PAD7 Auxiliary Display Kit for Pioneer is available. This secondary display can be useful in science and chemistry classroom setting allowing students to see the weight display without being direct over the balance looking at the display. This second display plugs into the RS-232 port on the rear of the balance.
Before you make your final decision be sure to see the Sartorius Entris224-1S. 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 Analytical Balance and how easy calibration is when you purchase the optional calibration mass. The Sartorius Entris 4 decimal place balances offer a large draftshield with 3 sliding doors. 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. Quintix is convenience in operation, calibration and data transfer. Even Practum features weighing technology at the highest quality level.
Select from 24 different Pioneer Pro Precision Balances
Need more accuracy? Do you need a 5 decimal place gram balance? The Sartorius Secura and Quintix semi microbalances are amazing. In the YouTube video above you will see the Sartorius Secura225D-1S semi microbalance [0-120g x 0.01mg] [120-220g x 0.1mg]. We highlight the intuitive operation using the SmartTouch user interface that is so easy to use you'll probably never need to reference the user manual. We also demonstrate the ergonomic draftshield and show how easy it is to dismantle the balance for easy cleaning.
Also you'll get a close up view of the new "collection container".
The collection container is designed to keep the spill from entering the lab balance that could cause potential damage to the balance. Sartorius' revolutionary "collection container" features a rimmed design to keep the spill from entering if you happen to spill any liquid or granular samples while weighing.
