Competitively priced and packed with features, including a high grade stainless steel weighing pan, easy-to-read LCD, five application programs including mass unit conversion, counting, animal weighing, net totaling and % weighing.  Available options include carrying case, remote display, calibration masses, and external battery pack. 

Elegant and robust lines, a display designed for excellent visibility, a vibration-proof plate in drawn stainless steel against lateral blows and embedded filtering software, allow you to work in almost any extreme conditions.

810 gram capacity with 0.1 gram readability featuring a large 6.9 x 5.6 rectangular weighing tray.  Two large "tare" keypads on the right and left of display for zeroing out gem tray or container.  External calibration requires the purchase of an optional 500g calibration mass.

Redesigned Sartorius GE Series replaces the ever successful GM Series known worldwide for superior performances throughout the world especially in the jewelry industry.  New body style is ergonomically designed with a sleek look and rounded corners.  Now all Sartorius GE Series come standard with a BI directional RS-232 interface allowing communication to a pc or Sartorius Printer.  Unlike many other balance manufacturers the Sartorius GE portable series operate on standard AA batteries while many other brands make you pay over $100 for a proprietary designed NiCd or lead acid battery costing you a fortune. It's always nice to be able to go to the local store to purchase standard off the shelf AA alkaline batteries in our opinion.

Sartorius has been proving their trustworthiness thanks to their top-of-the-line technology that ensures maximum accuracy.  Sartorius products are manufactured with ISO9001 standards and have the CE mark.  Sartorius' excellent reputation and image in the technologically sophisticated field of weighing balances make them a global leader.  Sartorius' endeavors to expand its traditionally outstanding position on the market for laboratory weighing balances now targets the jewelry and geologist marketplace.  Review all the technical specifications on the GE811 and additional images here.

Sartorius has discontinued all GE Jewelry Scales in the USA. The information on this web page is for reference only for past customers that purchased their Sartorius jewelry scale from Precision Weighing Balances. If you are in the market to buy a new scale give us a call and we can recommend many other jewelry scales from AND Weighing and Mettler. It truly is weird how Sartorius sells the GE jewelry scales in Europe and pulled the plug on the sales of the GE Series in the USA, but we have no control over Sartorius' marketing strategy.
