When the EW-1500i digital balance is first installed it should be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. We offer a full line of optional calibration weights including the recommended 1000g calibration weight for the EW-1500i. Every location in the world is positioned differently to "magnetic north" and therefore the acceleration of gravity is slightly different.

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 EW-1500i 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 and operates very similar to the EW-1500i so we recommend you watch the video to gain more insight on the scale. There are some slight differences.
Both the EW-1500i and EK6100J have a 5.2 x 6.7 inches rectangular weighing platform and both scales are Legal for Trade and NTEP Approved Class II Scales.
For the EK6100J the maximum weighing capacity is 6000 grams and "d"(value of scale division) is 0.1 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 1 grams.
For the EK610J the maximum weighing capacity is 600 grams and "d"(value of scale division) is 0.01 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 0.1 grams. The EK6100J & EK-610J DO NOT have a functional RS-232 serial interface so you can not connect the EK-610J nor EK6100J scale to a computer or A&D printer, but you could with the EW-1500i.
The EW-1500i 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 EW-1500i.
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 EW-1500i 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 EW-1500i 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.
