The Sartorius GD603 has been discontinued and no longer in production as of May 2013. The Sartorius GD603 was phased-out and replaced with the Practum 124-1S or Quintix 124-1S. We have no remaining stock on the GD603 and all information displayed herein is for archival and support purposes only.
Sartorius GD603 analytical balance was the first generation analytical in the Sartorius GD series.
Since the GD603 was released, a new and improved balance has become available and offers a much better value for the money.
This analytical is the Sartorius GD503. The
GD503 increments in 0.1mg while the GD603 is only to 0.2mg.
Unlike the GD603, a Sartorius GD503 is legal for trade, which is required by jewelers looking to weigh their gems and sell jewelry by weight.
Aside from the NTEP approval, the GD503 offers 100 g x 0.0001 while a GD603 weighs 121 g x 0.0002 g. That's right, you get twice the accuracy and will spend less money
when you select a GD503 from Sartorius.
The GD-603 analytical balance for the lapidary marketplace.
Another applications could be specialty pharmacies in compounding medicine (always
check with your pharmacy licensing board since requirements vary from states
to state but at 0.2 milligram readability the GD-603 offers even greater readability
for many states). The GD-603 comes standard with a bi-directional RS-232
interface so you can connect the balance to an optional Sartorius
Printer or your computer for a paperless data collection application.
Beautiful balance by Sartorius - that's only how we can describe this balance.
Whether you're weighing diamonds or chemical compounds the GD-603 offers 121
gram weighing capacity and increments in 0.2mg intervals, plus the RS-232 interface
and 100 gram ASTM class 1 external calibration is included.
The GD603 is very similar to the
Sartorius GC503 but the GD603 offers a new body style that is ergonomically
designed with a sleek look and rounded corners. Below are
images of the GC503 for reference to help you in your purchasing decision.
At no time can the total mass on the platform exceed the weighing capacity of
the balance, no matter what balance you purchase. Therefore, if you had
a pan weighing 10 grams and you place it on the weighing platform, pressed the
tare button, the GD-603 would then display 0.0000g. You would now have
111 grams weighing capacity left (121 - 10 = 111g.)
The GD-603 produces steady readings using the high stability mode and the unique
Sartorius weighing system even if the environmental conditions are not ideal
for precision weighing. The Double Lever System, or DLS, for short based
on its special force transmission design. With this patented system, Sartorius
sets the technological standards for the new millennium. Just like
the proven monolithic systems in Sartorius' CP
Series and Master
proSeries balances, this new "small" system is cut from a single
block of a special, highly rugged aluminum alloy using high-speed 21st century
milling technology. The double lever principle offers two decisive advantages:
the design in the area of the pan linkage is highly resistant to mechanical
stress and therefore has exceptionally high mechanical stability, and the system
is about half the size of the monolithic block cell, allowing for a smaller
footprint. Like the monolithic weigh cell, it is cut from a single block
of aluminum and no screw fasteners are needed between functional parts.
This keeps the system less sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, and with
fewer parts there is less chance of failure.
The Monolithic DLS system offers unbeatable advantages for daily use like Incredibly
fast response time and Unfailing reliability and near-zero susceptibility
to interference. The reasons for these considerable advantages are
two fold: the number of individual parts has been reduced by more than 70% and
the mechanical construction has been designed to last for years of trouble-free
The GD603 in NOT Legal for Trade. If you will be selling at
the Tucson Gem Show you'll positively need a Legal of Trade Carat Balance
and you should buy the GD503 instead. The GD503 looks similar to the GD603 but the GD503
is a Class II, NTEP Approved, Legal for Trade Carat Scale and you
