Ohaus Pioneer Plus is the economical choice for everyday weighing. Targeted for the educational market or any laboratory that does not need advanced weighing function and just needs a good balance that is simple to use and weighs accurately. Ohaus understands not everyone is looking for a fancy touch screen display and other bells and whistles found in the Ohaus Explorer and Adventurer, but instead an affordable balance for basic weighing and the Pioneer Plus is the answer.

Ohaus Pioneer Plus PA1602 precision digital scale weighs up to 1600 grams with 0.01 gram readability. Additional weighing applications include weighing, parts counting, percent weighing, density determination and dynamic weighing applications. The new Pioneer Plus Series balances combine the latest weigh sensor technology (MFR magnetic force restoration) housed in a solid metal base housing.

Pioneer's compact design and small footprint allows the balance to easily fit into small areas of laboratory benches without overcrowding the workspace. The up-front level indicator is located right next to the display and allows the user to quickly make sure the balance is level prior to each use.

The Pioneer Plus PA1602 replaces the Ohaus Pioneer PA1502 and offers new features like a backlight display and built-in weigh below with density determination function allowing you to suspend an item below the balance to calculate specific gravity.

All Pioneer Plus Precision Balances are constructed with a metal base, ABS top housing, stainless steel pan, up-front level indicator security bracket, calibration lock, user selectable communication and printing settings, auto standby, mechanical and software overload protection and replaceable in-use cover.

Pioneer Plus Balances models 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.

Choose from 8 different 0.01 grams models in the Pioneer Plus series with either a capacity of 1600 grams or 4200 grams. You can review the complete line of Ohaus Pioneer Plus Balances HERE.

Ohaus Pioneer digital scales were designed for basic routine weighing in a variety of laboratory, industrial and education applications. With the right combination of performance and features, the Ohaus Pioneer offers uncomplicated performance for all your basic weighing needs.

When the Ohaus PA1602 balance is first installed, or is moved to another location, the weighing balance must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. The Ohaus PA1602 requires the purchase of a optional external 1000 gram calibration weight to perform calibration. We always recommend that you purchase the calibration weight when you purchase the digital balance. You can learn more about calibration weights, class weights and the weight tolerances at

Is the Ohaus PA1602 too expensive for your budget? Many people call us looking for the absolute best value Precision Weighing Balances can offer in a precision 0.01 gram balance and the answer again and again is the A&D FXi precision balances. We believe the value is unmatchable in the AND Weighing FX2000i since you get lightening fast weighing results, 2200 grams weighing capacity with hundredth of a gram readability and all topped off with a 5 year limited manufacturer warranty at a much lower price than the Ohaus PA1602 (just a 2 year warranty). The A&D FX-2000i is made in Korea while the Ohaus PA1602 is made in China. Both are good digital scales and you'll need to weighing the differences in your buying decision. Watch our video on the FXi Series HERE.

Looking for a balance that comes standard with a USB interface? Be sure to see the Sartorius Practum 2102-1S, Quintix 2102-1S precision balance or the advanced Secura 2102-1S for pharma applications. These Sartorius models feature a touch screen user interface for easy balance configuration. Don't want to spend the money for the fancy touchscreen or USB interface but still want the Sartorius brand? Then be sure to see the Entris2202-1S. We have used all of the major brand laboratory balances and without a question Sartorius builds the best performing lab balance for speed and accuracy.

US government customers call us saying the must comply with the Buy American Act clause the only similar balance we offer to the PA1602 that is made in America would be the Scientech SL2000. 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.

We understand purchasing an precision balance is a major capital expense and if you have any questions give us a call and one of our weighing experts can discuss your weighing application and get you the most affordable balance for your weighing needs.

Ohaus Pioneer laboratory balance weight display
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 PA1502, 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 precision balance.
Lab 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.
Ohaus digital laboratory balance
Multiple Application Modes and Units. Pioneer features basic weighing, parts counting and percent weighing, density weighing, and dynamic weighing and 15 international weighing units including one custom unit
Weigh below hook for specific gravity
The Pioneer Pro balance is now equipped with a weigh below hook for weighing below the balance. 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.
Ohaus digital scale usb drive for storing weighing data
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.

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.
Before you make your final decision be sure to see the Sartorius Entris2202-1S, Entris3202-1S, Entris4202-1S or Entris6202-1S precision balances. The Entris is made in Germany and production will soon be moved to Sartorius' manufacturing facility in Colorado. Watch the video above and see the superior eccentric loading characteristics of the Sartorius Entris Balances. Watch as a calibration weight is placed in the center and 4 quadrants on the platform and how the Sartorius Entris measures the weight accurately. Not all digital balances perform like this and if you own a laboratory balance you should test your balance by placing a weight in the center of the platform and then in the outer 4 corners and see how accurate your weighing instrument is performing. Nobody has more experience building balances than Sartorius. Sartorius begin building balances in 1871 and holds the Guinness Book of World Record for the most accurate balance in the world.
The A&D FX2000i is an amazing precision balance that is back with a much longer warranty than the Ohaus PA1602. 5 years verses Ohaus is only 2 years. Plus the A&D offers a smaller footprint saving you valuable lab space. In addition, if you are weighing in a hostile environment that is extremely dusty or wet AND Weighing is one of the few balance manufacturers in the world that offers an IP65 rated dust and water resistent precision balance. See the A&D FX2000iWP washdown scale or A&D FZ2000iWP Internal Calibration Scale.
If you are a jeweler or pawnshop buying and selling silver and other precious metals the PA1602 is NOT legal for trade and you will run into a lot of trouble with weights and measures and possibly hefty fines. Don't take chances of being in violation. Instead purchase the A&D FX2000iN legal for trade balance with 2200 grams weighing capacity that displays to 0.01 grams division and the verification scale division of 0.1 grams. The FX2000iN is a Class II NTEP Approved Balance and popular with medical marijuana dispensary.
