Ultra high resolution counting scale with powerful counting features.  The FC-500Si is the most sensitive parts counting scale we offer.  This counting scale is designed for counting small parts.  If you took a $1 bill out of your wallet and cut the dollar bill into 10 equal pieces the FC-500Si is sensitive enough to count each one of the pieces.  There is a catch to all this sensitivity and that is you're limited to the total weighing capacity that you could ever have on the weighing pan and that is 500 gram or 1 pound.  So the FC-500Si isn't the correct selection for counting large hardware like nuts and bolts used to put together shelving since many times 10, 50, 75, or 100 pieces would weigh over 1 pound.

You must carefully select the correct model counting scale for your specific application.  You also want to select the correct model that can count as many various size/weight parts so you can get maximum usage from your counting scale.  Scale manufacturers make many different models all having varying sensitivity to cover the unlimited different part people want to count.  Just like car manufacturer's don't make just 3 different automobiles to meet all the transportation need of the world, scale manufacturers don't make 3 different counting scale to cover any part a person would ever want to count.  If you're not sure call us at 978-521-7095 and a counting scale specialist will assist you in the proper selection.  We'll ask you immediate "what is the smallest part that you want to count" so we can determine the sensitivity needed..  We recommend whatever the smallest part weighs, you want a counting scale with 5 times the readability.  If your part weighs 0.1g (0.02g, readability of the FC-500Si multiplied by 5 equals 0.1g) or greater you'll be able to accurately count the parts with the FC-500Si..

If 70 or 90% of the parts you're counting are in the range of 100 mg then the FC500Si is probably your best selection.  If you have a few parts 2 to 5 grams in weight then you'll be limited to only counting out 100 pieces (100 pieces x 5g = 500g) at a time to prevent overloading and damaging the counting scale.  To get a better understand how counting scales work read the detailed write-up we did on the AdamLab CBC Series Counting Scales. We also have a few youtube videos showing the HCi counting scale and a great video on how to use a counting scale.

A&D Weighing's FC-500Si Counting Scale is designed with the super hybrid sensor providing ultra sensitivity.  The FC-500Si is also the only counting scale in the FC-i Series with a plastic breeze break to lessen the effects air turbulence could have on the weighing pan.  The FC-500Si also has the smallest weighing pan of only 5 inches square.  You'll have 500 grams weighing capacity that increments in 0.02 grams.  Unique VFD displays an abundance of information and the counting scales operates on either AC Adapter or optional NiCd Battery Pack.

The FC-i Series by A&D combines the latest cutting edge features and a heavy duty design. A&D Weighing has long been a global manufacturer of high quality counting scales.  The result is a truly professional line of scales ideal for the most demanding commercial and industrial applications.  Each scale comes equipped with Automatic Counting Accuracy Improvement ( ACAI ) for enhanced counting performance.

High performance and quality is shown with a 2 year manufacturer warranty. Review the manufacturer warranty from other manufacturer's and you'll see their warranty is a lot less. Plus if you ever need repair A&D Weighing has two facilities in the USA located in Georgia and California for fast turn around.

Repeatable Counts A&D Weighing new FC-i Counting Scale, replacing the very popular FC Counting Scale.  The new series provides improved resolution and performance along with additional features at a lower cost.  The FC-i can be used for production counting, inventory control or quality control in industries such as plastics, publishing and mailing services, as well as for counting gaming tokens or “Pull Tab” lottery tickets.  Eliminate the tedious task of counting nuts, bolts, and machined casings with the latest in counting scale technology from A&D Weighing.

The new FC-i offers a remarkable 1 million parts internal resolution, while the FC-Si offers a unprecedented 5 million parts internal resolution.  With a bright, four line, alphanumeric Vacuum Fluorescent Display, the FCi provides simple and easy-to-read operation.  In addition, 500 unit or tare weights can be stored into memory.

The standard RS-232C makes it straightforward to connect a computer, printer or bar code reader as well as to use the programmable printer format function. 
(Please note at the present time A&D designed the FC-i with the capabilities of using the FC-i counting scale with a bar code reader, scanner or printer but don't actually offer these components as accessories allowing you to purchase everything from an A&D Authorized Dealer like us.  Please contact John Means, Marketing Manager for A&D Weighing at 408-263-5333 prior to placing an order if you anticipate integrating the counting scale with a bar code reader, scanner or printer.  John Means can supply you with a list of products that will integrate seamlessly with the FC-i Series, but require you to purchase these items separately.)

The rugged FC-i retains all of the standard features of the original FC including comparator and accumulator functions as well as ACAI, A&D’s exclusive Automatic Count Accuracy Improvement.  ACAI continuously improves counting accuracy by recalculating average unit weight.  The remote scale option extends the functionality and capacity up to 100,000 pounds and is available with a Ni-MH rechargeable battery for portability.
