Popular with academic science classroom for years the Ohaus Scout Pro SP401 has been discontinued and replaced with the Ohaus SPX421 (420g x 0.1g). Ohaus Scout digital scales are popular in the educational market especially for science and chemistry lab projects. It's one of the most versatile portable digital scales in its class The Scout SPX421 is all about accuracy, efficiency and possibilities. Stabilization time as fast as 1 second means increased productivity in any facility or laboratory. With improved resolution, you can count on extremely precise and repeatable weighing results.
The Scout SPX421 is equipped with superior overload protection rated at 10 times the capacity of the scale, high strength stainless steel pan, impact-resistant pan support and integrated transportation/storage lock, delivers the same durable quality that you expect from OHAUS products. To complement the durability Ohaus designed the Scout SPX421 to be stackable when utilizing the optional stacking and storage cover which also protects the digital scale when not in use.
Select from 10 different weighing modes - Grams, Kilograms, Pounds, Pound:Ounces, Ounces, Newtons, Carats, Grains, Pennyweight and Troy Ounces. For weighing applications the Ohaus Scout SPX models include Counting, Percent Weighing, Display Hold, Totalization and Check Weigh.
The adjustable feet and level bubble to help level your digital scale to provide the most accurate weighing results. The Ohaus Scout started out over 20 years ago and the SPX421 is the pinnacle of engineering weighing technology refinement.
Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout SPX continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout, Scout II and Scout Pro products. Featuring easy-to-use four-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included) for complete portability.

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SPX421 is the A&D EJ1500 offering the ability to purchase either the RS-232 or USB module if you want to send weighing results to a computer. A&D offers WinCT data communication software to download free while Ohaus offers no free software. In addition, the A&D EJ digital scales are backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus Scout SPX421 has only a 2 year warranty. Schools are always calling us asking which scale offers the longer warranty and the 5 year warranty is something they really like.
If price is absolutely the #1 issue and you are in search of the lowest cost 0.1g digital scales then we have a couple of other digital scales that are made in China - the Ohaus SPX421 is also made in China. These gram scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SPX421, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified digital portable balance, with less features we recommend My Weigh brand digital scales. My Weigh's i500 balance offers 500g x 0.1g and the ECS500 digital gram scale at a much more affordable price.
Bright backlit LCD & 4 button keypad enables efficient operation and ease of use. The sprint leveling bubble located to the right of the display allows you to know whether your scale is level to deliver the most accurate weighing results. The Scout's large backlit display increases readability in low light working conditions, and is easier to view from a distance. The Ohaus Scout SPX421 features a 4.7 inch diameter stainless steel weighing platform.
Learn how to calibration the Ohaus Scout digital scale. In the YouTube video above we perform a span calibration that uses two weight values: zero and a weight value at or near the digital scale's capacity. We don't stop here, we also walk you step by step how through the procedure for linearity calibration, which minimizes deviation between actual and displayed weights within the scale's weighing range. Three weight values are used: zero, a weight value within the scale's weighing range which is set to 1000g, and a weight value at or near the balance's specified capacity which is preset at 1500g for the SJX1502. The steps to perform calibration for the SJX1502N/E are similar for the SPX421 and various Ohaus Scout SPX, SKX or SJX models except the value of calibration weight used for calibration is different. The 200 gram span calibration weight is included with Ohaus SPX421 but the 400 gram calibration weight required for linearity calibration is NOT INCLUDED but can be purchased at www.calibrationweight.com
The new Ohaus Scouts Portable Balances are their latest generation of weighing perfection. Since the inception of the Ohaus Scout over 2 decades ago Ohaus' scale engineers have refined the electronics, performance and features to deliver a spectacular weighing instrument. Stabilization time as fast as 1 second and high resolution load cell with
4,200d resolution and readability to 0.1g, deliver extremely
quick, precise and repeatable weighing results.

The Ohaus Scout Scale is equipped with a weigh below hook for weighing below the balance. Before turning the balance over remove the weighing pan and platform support, place the transportation lock in the locked position to prevent damage. To use this feature remove the protective cover for the weigh below opening. The digital scale can be supported using lab jacks or any other convenient method. Ensure the scale is level and secure. Power on the Scout Scale, 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 scale's electronics if placed directly on the weighing platform due to thermal heat/cold transfer. Additional applications would be specific gravity determination.
The Ohaus Scout operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included). There are four(4) adjustable feet to assist in leveling your Ohaus Scout digital scale.
The Ohaus Scout Scales have a red transportation lock on sub platform of the balance that needs to be disengaged before you start your weighing. Simply turn the red pointer 90° counter-clockwise.
The impact-resistant pan support safeguard against shock and overloading the balance in rugged and demanding environments. The Scout engineered with superior overload protection rated at 10 times the capacity of the digital scale.
See the MyWeigh ibalance i2600 in action. The new features the i2600 version II offers including a brand new LED display. We show you how easy it is to perform calibration with an optional 2 kilogram calibration weight. See how the parts counting feature works as we count out paperclips. We go a step further and demonstrate the eccentric loading in all 4 quadrants which shows the spectacular weighing performance this digital scale offers for an amazing low price.
Is the Ohaus Scout just too expensive for your budget? The MyWeigh i-500 (500g x 0.1g) digital scale will cost you a barrel of money less - you could buy three(3) Myweigh i500 scales for the price of just one(1) Ohaus Scout SPX421.
