The A&D EK-3000i is not NTEP Approved which is required any time goods are being bought or sold buy weight.

If you do need a legal for trade scale we offer a huge selection including from AND Weighing the EK6100J, EW-12Ki, EK1200i, EK6000i, FX1200iN, FX-300iN along with other scale manufacturers HERE.
The A&D EKi Series digital scales are compact electronic scales, but often times, our customers are looking for a lower cost balance. The A&D EJ3000 is a comparable model for much less money but it also has less features.
For those customers demanding even a lower cost and seeking a simplified digital balance, with even less features than A&D's products, we recommend My Weigh brand balances. MyWeigh i2600 (2600g x 0.1g) or i5500 (5500g x 0.1g), or our newest low cost digital scale the EPB-3K (3000 x 0.1) or EPB-6K (6000 x 0.1). These models are all priced much less than the EK-4100i and operate on either AC Adapter or the normal batteries at a substantially lower cost than the EK-4100i.
A&D has built an amazing high quality strain gauge electronic scales that performs lightening fast. Unlike other manufacturer's that outsource their scale to the lowest cost manufacturer in China the EK3000i is made in AND Weighing company owned and operated factory in Korea.
Haven't heard of A&D Weighing? They are the third largest manufacturer of laboratory balances and scales in the world. Corporate headquarters are based in Japan but US offices in California and Georgia. All EK-i electronic scales are backed with a 5 years manufacturer warranty making it the longest manufacturer warranty in the industry for a high quality lab balance.
Another selling point is AND Weighing fabulous product support. A&D Weighing has a dedicated product support line by calling 1-800-726-4940 6:00 am to 5:00 pm PST. Finally the A&D is simply to use and configure.

In the video above we unbox the A&D Weighing EK6100J and show you what comes with the scale and discuss some of the available accessories. We also review the features of the scale, how it operates and how to calibrate the EK scale. Many of the topics discussed are applicable to the EK-3000i so it is a video we recommend you watch to better understand the functionality, capabilities and operation of the EK Series electronic scales.
Weighing equipment - The world runs on weights & measures. Almost everything you see & touch is weighed.
In this video we offer an overview of the A&D Weighing EK6100J and EK610J. The EK6100J (6000g x 0.1g) has the same display, same housing, same size weighing platform and operates very similar to the EK3000i so we recommend you watch the video to gain more insight on the scale. There are some slight differences mainly the EK3000i only has a weighing capacity of 3000 grams while the EK6100J is 6000 grams.
Another difference is the EK-3000i is "non-NTEP" while the EK-6100J is "NTEP Approved 6000d Class II Scale". The EK-6100J DOES NOT have a functional RS-232 serial interface so you can not connect the EK-6100J scale to a computer or A&D printer, but you could with the EK-3000i.
If you have no plans to connect the EK3000i to a computer for data acquisition or the A&D 8121B printer the EK6100J is a better buy for most people since you get a lot more weighing capacity than the EK-3000i.
The EK3000-i comes standard with an 120V AC Adapter. So you'll need to plug the scale into a power receptacle. What happens if you need to operate the scale and there is no electrical outlet available?
Well there is an answer to your dilemma, but it requires you to purchase the optional EKW-09i rechargeable battery pack. When fully charged you'll have approximately 9 hours of scale operating time. Watch the video above to see how to install the optional EKW-09i rechargeable battery pack. Installation is the same for the EK-3000i.
Now you can add a layer of protection against accidental spills when mixing inks, dyes or other weighing application when a person's fingers might not always be clean. The optional protective cover (part number is AX:3005824-5S available in the optional accessories section) is chemically-resistant.
This form fitted clear transparent plastic cover in-use cover is easy to install on the EK-3000i and other EK/EW models with the 5.2 x 6.7 inches rectangular platform requires you to remove the weighing pan support to install the clear plastic cover and this video shows how this is done.
The optional EJ-12 hard shell transport case features die cut foam specifically designed for holding AND Weighing EK-3000i digital scale. This carrying scale is convenient for transporting the digital scale or just storing your scale when not in use to lessen the chance of damage to the precision measurement weigh sensor. Whether the scale is turned On or Off if one applies an excessive load or shocks the platform you can permanently damage any scale. The optional EJ-12 case is a low cost scale insurance policy to protect your scale.
