High resolution counting scale with powerful counting features. This counting
scale is designed for counting small parts 250 milligram or heavier. If
you took a $1 bill out of your wallet and cut the dollar bill into 4 equal pieces
the FC-500i is sensitive enough to count each one of the pieces. There
is a catch to all this sensitivity and that is you're limited to the total weighing
capacity that you could ever have on the weighing pan and that is 500 gram or
1 pound. So the FC-500i isn't the correct selection for counting large
hardware like nuts and bolts used to put together shelving since many times
10, 50, 75, or 100 pieces would weigh over 1 pound.
You must carefully select the correct model counting scale for your specific
application. You also want to select the correct model that can count
as many various size/weight parts so you can get maximum usage from your counting
scale. Scale manufacturers make many different models all having varying
sensitivity to cover the unlimited different part people want to count.
Just like car manufacturer's don't make just 3 different automobiles to meet
all the transportation need of the world, scale manufacturers don't make 3 different
counting scale to cover any part a person would ever want to count.
you're not sure call us at 978-521-7095 and a counting scale specialist will
assist you in the proper selection. We'll ask you immediate "what
is the smallest part that you want to count" so we can determine the sensitivity
needed.. We recommend whatever the smallest part weighs, you want a counting
scale with 5 times the readability. If your part weighs 0.25g (0.05g,
readability of the FC-500i multiplied by 5 equals 0.25g) or greater you'll be
If 70 or 90% of the parts you're counting are in the range of 250 mg then the
FC500i is probably your best selection. If you have a few parts 2 to 5
grams in weight then you'll be limited to only counting out 100 pieces (100
pieces x 5g = 500g) at a time to prevent overloading and damaging the counting
scale. To get a better understand how counting scales work read the detailed
write-up we did on the AdamLab
CBC counting scales. We also have a few youtube videos showing the HCi counting scale and a great video on how to use a counting scale.
The FC-500i features a 8.1" x 6" stainless steel weighing pan.
You'll have 500 grams weighing capacity that increments in 0.05 grams.
Unique VFD displays an abundance of information and the counting scales operates
on either AC Adapter or optional NiCd Battery Pack.
