AND Weighing FX-500i milligram balance rivals the competition in the one milligram readability category when you compare the features and weighing performance to the price. This laboratory balance is truly amazing since you have 520 grams weighing capacity. Cutting edge engineering delivers a milligram laboratory balance with a nice small footprint saving you bench space yet never compromising speed and accuracy. AND Weighing knows how to build a quality lab balance while also making the balance affordable. The FX500i is back with a 5 year manufacturer warranty against defectives.
Unlike those low cost strain gauge scales the FX-500i has a magnetic force restoration weigh cell so your reading won't creep and drift all over the place.
A&D has built an amazing low cost magnetic force restoration balance that performs lightening fast using their Super Hybrid Sensor technology. This patented weigh cell provides quick stabilization speed with accurate weighing result in 1 second resulting in better productivity. The compact size and small footprint is something no other competitor brand can offer.
The vacuum fluorescent display enables easy-to-read weighing results even in poor lighting conditions.
The FX-i Series comes standard with RS-232C interface for bidirectional communication with a PC, printer or other peripheral devices. Plus AND's WinCT data acquisition software data communication software works with this balance. Other manufacturer's charge you $100's more for either their balance communication software or a third party software, but not with the A&D you can download WinCT balance software free. There is also an optional FXi-08 ethernet interface or FXi-02 USB interface available at an additional cost if you prefer not to use RS232 to transfer data from the balance to your computer.
When purchased with the optional AD-8121B printer you'll be GLP/GMP/GCP/ISO Compliant. In accordance with GLP and LIMS regulations, the balance ID number and calibration data can be printed out using A&D's AD-8121B or a PC.
All FX-i balances are backed with a 5 years manufacturer warranty making it the longest manufacturer warranty in the industry for a high quality milligram balance. Next time someone recommends another brand balance ask them if their balance is so good why is the warranty so short. A&D builds a reliable, well built balance and they are so confident that if your FX-500i balance fails due to a factory defect they will repair or replace the balance at no charge.

Before you make your final selection be sure to see the new Sartorius ENTRIS623-1S. The FX-500i uses a Super Hybrid Sensor which combines magnetic force restoration and single-point parallelogram load sensing technologies. The Sartorius Entris623-1S uses a monolithic magnetic force restoration for even more accurate & stable weighing results. The Sartorius Entris623-1S is made in Germany & has a glass draftshield while the FX-500i is made in South Korea and has a plastic draftshield.
The FXi-10 small breeze break comes standard with the FX/FZi milligram balances(0.001 gram) and can be upgraded by purchasing the optional FXi-11 large breeze break. The FX/FZi precision balances (those that increment in 0.01 gram divisions) do not come with any windshield, but can be purchased with either optional accessory FXi-10 small breeze break or FXi-11 large breeze break.
