The new FG-K is the next generation of the legendary FG Series bench scales.  Over a 100.000 units of the FG Series were sold worldwide for agricultural and industrial weighing applications and now A&D Weighing has made this digital scale even better.  The new loadcell offers one second response time, all new electronics and the sealed keypad protects against dust and spills and incorporates momentary contact buttons.  Locking casters for the new FG-K Series is also available as an optional accessory enabling the bench scale to be easily transporting by rolling the scale throughout the facility.

Buying a bench scale in today's flooded marketplace is an extremely tough decision.  We know this since we have never seen so many manufacturers' chasing after a niche market.  Some manufacturer's maintain zero inventory while others play games with their warranty policy where if you have a problem they will send you the parts even though most people can't repair the scales.  Other alleged manufacturers don't even answer their phones or e-mail so if you need any support you are on your own.

Precision Weighing Balances feels A&D is the best brand of bench scales when you take in consideration performance, design, support and warranty if it ever arises.  A&D offers a thoroughly documented and outlined user manual which you can download by scroll down this web page.

The comparator function compares the display value with upper limit and lower limit. The display shows the result and the optional FG-24 can output it as a relay signal.

The optional FG-23 (RS-232C serial interface) and FG-24 (RS-232C serial interface and comparator relay output) has an RS-232 interface and can output the weighing data to connect with a printer, computer and so on.  The interface is a DIN 8 pin connector (JA+TCP0586) and we highly recommend you purchase the optional RS-232 cable since this is not an off the shelf cable you'll find in a typical computer store.
industrial platform scales
There are 2 sizes of weighing pans.  The FG-KALN has a larger pan (15.4 x 20.9 inches) and the FG-KAMN/KBMN offers a smaller pan (11.8 x 15.0 inch).  The FG-KALN/KAMN has a display column and the FG-KBMN is a without column model.  You can select a model that suits your own application.

Select from 9 different Legal For Trade models.  These NTEP models offer only a single weighing resolution while the non-NTEP modes offer 3 weighing ranges.  NTEP models have their part number ending in the prefix "N".  Without a question A&D products require a degree in engineering to understand their scales and what each model does.
