FC50 fine balance with readability of 0,001g
Our FC-50 has a total measuring range of 50g. It works up to 40g in very fine 0.001g steps. Over 40g in 0.002g increments.
In a direct comparison to our FC-20, you get numerous other improvements with this scale, in addition to the more than twice as large measuring range.
The most important thing is an optimized power supply. The FC-50 enables connection to a power supply unit. This gives you a stable power supply without an increasing voltage drop from draining batteries affecting the measurement.
The power supply is available separately and is not included in the scope of delivery.
The windshield offers space for objects up to a size of approx. 3 cm, which can easily be placed underneath.
An adjustment bubble is built into the back of the balance, with the help of which you can align the balance exactly anywhere using the height-adjustable feet.
The balance is delivered with matching AAA batteries, a weighing pan and two 20g calibration weights.
The weights enable problem-free and precise adjustment of the balance to the local environmental conditions.
We refer to the FC series as our entry-level laboratory balances.
Despite the very good price-performance ratio, we would like to point out that the word "entry level" is of great importance in this price range. The FC series does not serve as laboratory scales.
Many important properties, such as a housing that protects against electrical radiation, stability compensators or an offset load-compensated load cell are not possible in terms of price.
We developed this scale so that e.g. collectors can determine the weight of your coins and other small, solid objects as cheaply and precisely as possible. Also on the go, e.g. at the flea market to check the goods directly at the dealer. For us, the FC is one of the household products, along with normal kitchen scales and inexpensive pocket scales. It is not designed for frequent continuous use.
When you weigh a ring, the weight is shown as 12.345g on the display. This weight is now "frozen" in the display. This prevents the displayed value from running away with every slight movement on the table, drafts from breathing or radiation. The small plastic housing does not provide any shielding against radiation from e.g. mobile phones.
The scales only notice a new measurement when there is a major change in weight. And shows the changed weight in the display.
If you use the scales for dosing, this has the disadvantage that not every added milligram appears in the display. The weight "jumps" to a new value when slowly adding 1mg each. For example from 0.100 grams to 0.105 grams.
If you want to dose exactly to 0.105mg, proceed as follows (we use powder as an example):
- Fill powder into the bowl until e.g. 0.1g is reached
- Now take the bowl off
- then add a tiny amount
- put the bowl back on
The scale now carries out a complete measurement and is able to determine the weight of e.g. 0.103mg. If something is still missing, take it off again, add it and put it back on again.
The FC models are very well suited if you are looking for a scale at the lowest possible price, with which you can determine the lowest possible weight as precisely as possible in the quietest possible environment.
If no deviations are allowed to occur or if you use the balance more often, we recommend one of our professional laboratory balances.
