PGL precision scales offers durability and precision coming together
for a whole new class of digital scale. Adam Lab PGL 8001 digital scale offers 8000 gram weighing capacity with readability of 0.1 grams. Oversized 7.6" x 7.6" stainless steel weighing platform accommodates those larger samples while competitor brands typically have smaller weighing pans. Non-slip adjustable feet provide a friction anchor to compensate for accidental bumps to the precision balance. Modern low profile design and a color coded, sealed pad add to a simple weighing experience. Auto sleep and power down function saves battery life. A built-in rechargeable battery and AC adapter allow you to
take your PGL balance anywhere, even out to the field.
The large backlit display with capacity tracker
is easy to read and shows you how much
weighing range is left when using the tare
function, ensuring that you do not overload
Navigating the built in applications and
weighing modes is easy with the intuitively
designed keypad. Access to the main
functions is quick and a special lock out
feature allows the supervisor to set up access
to all or selected functions so users do not
inadvertently change the settings.
Communications is a snap with the built in
bi-directional RS-232 interface. It interfaces
with computers or printers and works with
AdamDU data collection software or WinWedge balance communication software.
Adam Equipment PGL8001 weigh sensor is built using strain gauge technology. Adam
Equipment’s unique ShockProtect™ overload protection keeps
the weighing mechanism safe from unwanted overloads like book
bags and heavy hands.
AC and rechargeable battery
operation both included
Brilliant backlit display with 1" high digits and
graphic capacity tracker
All metal, chemical resistant construction

PGL balances combine the solid construction and fundamental
features of a high-precision top loader with the versatility of
operation making this a truly portable digital scale.
If you are a jewelry store, pawn shop or a medical marijuana dispensary and were told by a Weights & Measures Inspector that you need a Legal for Trade Class II Scale the Adam Equipment PGL8001 is NOT Legal for Trade and we recommend you purchase the Mettler Toledo JL6001-G/LA00 or Mettler-Toledo JB8001-GA-F precision balance.

If the PGL8001 is too expensive for your budget then review the MyWeigh ibalance i11000 or EPB10K (10000g x 0.1g). The MyWeigh Scale and EPB10K both use the same strain gauge weigh sensor design that we really refrain from recommending for digital scale with greater than 60,000 divisions since eventually you'll have a weighing application that the drift of the load cell weigh sensor will hinder your weighing expectations. Again watch our video here so you know what to expect in a strain gauge loadcell vs electromagnetic force restoration.
To determine the amount of divisions you divide the capacity of the scale divided by readability. So for the PGL8000 8000g x 0.1g is a 80,000 division scale (8000/0.1). There are limitations of a strain gauge, but for scale manufacturer's quest to bring lower cost scales to the marketplace we see strain gauges stretched to unreal limits. If your budget forces you to buy a strain gauge scale you really should buy the calibration weight to calibrate the scale daily.
Adam Equipment PGL scales come with a Two (2) year
limited manufacturers warranty.
