Automatic Internal Calibration
Equipped with a state-of-the-art automatic internal calibration mechanism. The mechanism uses a high accuracy calibration weight to calibrate the scale whenever a pre-set time, or temperature change initiates the process. Configuring Automatic Internal Calibration is fast and easy. In addition to having the scale calibrate automatically, calibration may be initiated at any time by the stroke of a single key. This feature is extremely important in applications which require consistently high accuracy under conditions which may allow undetected temperature changes or long periods between calibrations to affect scale accuracy. The feature is very valuable in those instances where several users share a common scale, and the calibration record can become confusing.
Large Graphical LCD with Backlight
The AG Series is equipped with a large 5" x 3" backlit graphical LCD display, which allows the scale to display onscreen instructions and graphics. This makes the PRO Series intuitive, user friendly, and easy to use.
Accurate and Easy to Use Leveling System
Leveling an AG scale is fast, accurate, and easy. Most AG scales use a tripod support system which consists of two adjustable legs and one fixed leg. The level sensor is a bubble type of spirit level that is omni directional. The system makes adjustment easy and very intuitive.
Accurate and Easy to use Leveling System
Makes it ideal for applications in tough environments. This rugged design provides a stable weighing platform and guarantees long operating life of the scale.
Robust Die-cast Metal Housing
The AG Series is fabricated with a rugged die cast metal housing. This makes it ideal for protecting the apparatus in tough environments. The housing provides a stable weigh platform and protects the scales highly precise and delicate components. Our robust design guarantees durability and long operating life.
Used Capacity Indicator
AG scales are equipped with a used-capacity-indicator which shows the amount of the scale's capacity used during weighing. It allows the user to avoid exceeding the maximum capacity of the scale. The indicator is particularly useful in functions such as "Totalizing" or "Compounding" where large amounts of tares are likely to be taken. In addition, AG scales have a filling indicator which is activated in the "Compounding" mode. This digital analog of an in-line meter has greatly increased sensitivity as the cutoff point is approached when filling to a preset weight. This unique feature makes compounding a much faster operation.
20 Key Sealed Front Panel
All Torbal digital scales have a sealed front panel which protects the keys and the LCD display from dust and accidental spills. With 20 logically grouped keys, the panel is simple, concise, and intuitive. In addition, there are numeric keys (0-9), navigation keys, and dual (R-L) Tare keys. All keys are soft, have audible feedback, and are very responsive, which makes user interaction easy and fast. A PS-2 connector on the rear of the scale allows the user with applications which require many alpha-numeric entries to use an external PC type keyboard for data entry.
The draft ring is standard on all AG models with a resolution of 0.001g (AG100, AG200, AG300, AG500). Its unique design around the pan minimizes the need for a windscreen in environments with common air movements. The draft ring provides full access to the pan while maintaining stability during weighing.
GLP and Data Printing
This feature allows the user to print a record of a performed transaction. The printed record indicates GLP data which including the Model Number, Unit ID, User ID and a Project Number. In addition to the weighing result the receipt also contains information associated with the function in use such as, average weight time, average piece weights, reference weights, and weight limits.
A Barcode Scanner can be used to quickly recall samples or limit sets from the scale's database. This feature is particularly useful in features such as Parts Counting or Percent weighing, where an average piece weight or a reference weight is required to carry out the transaction. To connect the barcode scanner to the scale, use a PS/2 Keyboard Wedge Y-Cable Connector.
RS232 Interface Port
A standard RS232 Port is furnished with each balance. It can be used for connecting the balance with a printer or a computer. A standard RS232 communications protocol is used to send data from the scale. Data transfer can be sent automatically when a stable result is obtained, or by sending a SEND command from the computer. Under the control of Torbal™ Communication Software, data may be exported to standard word processing and spreadsheet programs.
PS2 - External Keyboard Connection
A standard PS-2 keyboard connector on the rear of the unit allows the user to use a low-cost standard PC type keyboard for external alpha-numeric data entry. For those applications which require rigid test parameter recording this capability can save the user a great deal of time (and pain).
Every AG scale can be connected to a PC with a Standard A/B USB cable. The USB makes interfacing with a computer fast and easy. The ports bi-directional data flow allows the scale to be controlled from the PC.
RJ45 - Network Connection Port* (optional)
This optional feature allows the scale to be networked into Laboratory Management Systems, or any other Ethernet based programs. These systems or programs require very specific structures for the bidirectional data transfers and may require some customization of the internal program in the AG scale.
