We have NO remaining stock on the Acculab VIC-5101. Acculab is a victim of deleveraging and the brand Acculab has terminated production on December 31, 2010. The information listed below on the VIC-5101 is for reference only for those people researching the specification on a VIC5101 scale they already own.

Yes - Acculab DOES NOT EXIST in 2011 since Sartorius decided to shutdown the Acculab brand name. The Acculab VIC-5101 was resurrected as the Sartorius AY5101 but these are not available since Sartorius is experiencing excessive lead times. For those customers that can not wait we offer many excellent alternative models which are in stock. We have in stock the Precision EPB-6K, EPB-10K or MyWeigh i5500 or A&D Weighing EK-6100i or EJ-6100. which are in stock without the 20 week lead time typically required if you wanted to buy Sartorius.

Be sure to review the Adam Equipment Highland HCB3001 offering so many features, value at an affordable price. Adam's HCB Series comes with both the RS-232 and USB interface as standard equipment and the HandiCal - mechanical internal calibration with built in mass can be locked so only you calibrate the scale when you want to.

If you need additional help finding a digital scale that is in stock give the experts a call at Precision Weighing Balances since we carry scales from many other manufacturers.

Acculab VIC-5101 [5100g x 0.1g] operates on either AC Adapter (included with scale) or 9V battery, offers a large 5.5" x 5.0" weighing pan all at a fabulous price.  Built in Arvada, Colorado and backed with a 2-year parts and labor limited factory warranty!

VIC-5101 portable toploading scale features include: weigh below underhook feature for density determination; flip-down protective cover that is removable and protects your scale and teachers love this feature since the scales are now stackable; optional USB interface (most laptops only have USB ports); more applications (now percent function, hold feature, totalizing, specific gravity), larger selection of weigh modes, new display with backlit for easy viewing especially in poor lighting environments, and a completely new electronics for much better performance.

The VIC-5101 is a great general purpose scale for field collection sampling of soils and other construction materials for analysis.  If you are looking for the most weighing capacity in a battery powered portable scale that weighs to 0.1 gram increments be sure to see the MyWeigh iBalance 11000.

Standard Features & Benefits include:

  • Exceptional accuracy and performance
  • Protective flip-down and removable plastic cover for shipping protection and allows stackable storage
  • External calibration (requires purchase of OPTIONAL 5kg cal mass)
  • Weigh below underhook for specific gravity applications
  • Unique rugged, durable design for all applications
  • Applications include: Counting, Percent Weighing, Totaling, Display Hold, Specific Gravity, Mass unit conversion
  • 14 Mass unit conversions (g, oz, lbs, lbs:oz, dwt, ozt, grains, Newton, carats, Taels HK/Taiwan/Singapore/China, user defined)
  • Optional RS-232 or USB interface kit (field installable)
  • Parts counting with selectable reference sample
  • AC adapter Included or operate on 9V alkaline battery
  • External "one button" calibration with 3 weight options
  • Lock down capability
  • Large LCD display with backlit
  • Two year manufacturer warranty
For those of you shopping around for the best price in digital portable scales, My Weigh makes the least expensive digital gram scales we have to offer.  These affordable scales may not have all the features that an Acculab balance has, however as far as basic weighing is concerned, My Weigh portable scales can accomplish the task at hand and save you money.

Acculab balances are excellent weighing solutions, but often times, our customers are looking for a lower cost balance without all the bells and whistles included in an Acculab balance.  For our customers seeking a simplified digital balance, with less features than Acculab's products, we recommend My Weigh brand balances.  My Weigh's i5500 balance offers 5500g x 0.1g at a much more affordable price.

Another great buy is the EPB-6K Electronic Scale (6,000g x 0.1g) or EPB-10K Digital Scale (10,000g x 0.1g) that are priced less than the Acculab VIC-5101.  You can get much more weighing capacity for less $$$.

If you are a jeweler or pawn shop and were told by a Weights & Measures Inspector that you need a Legal for Trade Class II Scale the Acculab VIC5101 is NOT Legal for Trade and we recommend you purchase the A&D EK-1200i or Mettler Toledo JL6001-G/LA00 digital scale.  The or Mettler Toledo JL6001-G/LA00 is made in Switzerland and a must here before you make your final decision on your next purchase.
