Compact portable balance with 200 g capacity and 0.1 g readability (also known as accuracy)
Two-second settling time for increased productivity
Plastic 145 x 145 mm weighing pan is durable and lightweight
Powered by six standard AA (LR6) batteries or the included AC adapter, for increased mobility
Overload protection indicator prevents damage to scale from too-heavy objects
Imported from USA
Size:200g Capacity and 0.1g Readability
The Adam Equipment DCT 201 Dune compact portable balance has a capacity of 200 g and an accuracy of 0.1 g (also called
readability), and offers a two-second settling time that allows for increased productivity. The balance can be operated
using AC power or six AA batteries, for full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find, and the auto
off function can be enabled to power off the balance automatically to conserve power. This balance has an automatic
external calibration system that ensures repeatable measurements, and an overload protection indicator that prevents
damage to the weighing cell and balance by warning the user if too-heavy samples are mistakenly used.
The large, splash-proof digital display is easy to read, and the simple three-button keypad provides quick taring and
unit selection. The plastic housing and weighing pan are lightweight and durable enough to withstand use in the field
and tough lab environments. Warrantied by manufacturer for one year.

Balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object, while scales are used to measure the weight
of an object. The measurement results from balances are generally considered to be more precise compared to results from
scales. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement.
Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results
digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and
accuracy (0.0001 g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and
airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, using infrared
or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying
weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a computer.
