Intelligent Performance for Applications Requiring Extreme Accuracy
Balances with capacities ranging from 52 g – 220 g and readabilities from 0.1 mg – 0.01 mg make up the Explorer series of semi-micro balances. In addition to superior craftsmanship and a High Speed Single Module weighing cell, various features are incorporated in to the product’s design to enhance performance.
OHAUS’ signature AutoCal™ internal calibration system provides routine maintenance by automatically calibrating the balance every time it senses a temperature change of 1.5°C or every 3 hours, whichever occurs first.
This helps ensure the accuracy of the balance when the operator has not performed a manual calibration or when the proper calibration masses are unavailable. In addition, to minimize weighing errors and ensure accurate measurements, AutoCal™ utilizes two internal weights to perform a linearcalibration.
Explorer’s ultra-fast stabilization time (0.1 mg: ≤3 second, 0.01 mg: ≤8 second)
and audible stability alert increases laboratory efficiency
Intuitive Software Provides an Extremely Modern User Experience
Explorer semi-micro balances include many facets of modern technology to
provide the best weighing experience possible. The icon-based navigation
provides tactile feedback and operates in the same manner as a smart phone
or tablet computer.
Save to USB
A USB host port provides the capability of using a USB extension cable to
directly transfer the data to a flash drive.
The balance’s memory capabilities includes a library with space for up to 99
items, and a 10 recipe library for formulation mode.
The user manager function provides profiles for one administrator and five
additional users, allowing multiple users to utilize the same balance without
compromising past results recorded on the balance.
- Other technologically-advanced features include:
- Below minimum sample weight indicator
- Real time clock for GLP/GMP data collection
- Audible stability alert
- True type printing for SQC and pipette adjustment
Ingenious Construction Designed to Enhance Usability
The sleek Explorer semi-micro balance has been designed and constructed to provide a modern weighing experience as well as to bolster accuracy.
Among the features that enhance the operator experience are:
- Color touchscreen display
- Four programmable touchless sensors allow the operator to performcommon functions and commands with a swipe of the hand
- Modular design in which the base and display can be separated to allowthe balance to fit ideally on the lab bench.
The automatic door feature, available on certain models, allows access to the weighing chamber without the need to touch the draftshield door. Placement of samples is achieved in one swift motion, eliminating the repetition of
picking up and putting down samples due to a lack of free hands.
The automatic doors are also more than a user-friendly feature; they minimize vibrations caused by manual operation that can affect weighing results.
The built-in ionizer, included in Explorer automatic door models, generates bipolar ions continuously from positive and negative discharge electrodes and directs the ionized air onto the charged body to eliminate static electricity. These charges can build up in the weighing chamber and alter weighing results by as much as several milligrams.
