Highly-versatile, portable precision scale ideal for multi-purpose weighing.

Adam Equipment’s HCB Highland portable precision balances are multi-purpose weighing machines well-suited for lab work, field use, food weighing and many commercial applications.

Highland approved portable balances are trade certified scales required for selling goods by weight and are well-suited to use in home businesses for producing cosmetic products using the balance's percentage weighing function. They are regularly used by jewellers for weighing jewellery, precious stones, gold and diamonds in carat measurements. They can also be stacked, stored and transported with ease, which makes them particularly useful in schools and colleges for student field work and classroom experiments.

The HCB features Adam’s unique patented ShockProtect® as a safeguard against shock loading and accidental overload. A built in rechargeable battery makes the balance able to be used anywhere, whilst the standard RS232 and USB interfaces give plenty of communication options.

What do the 100g x 1mg type numbers mean?

When we show pairs of numbers such as 100g X 1mg or 12kg x 0.1g we are using an industry-wide shorthand which represents: capacity x readability. The 'x' does not mean multiply but could be read as 'with'.

Capacity is the maximum mass that can be measured on that scale or balance.

Readability is the smallest difference that the scale or balance can weigh to and display. Readability can be also be referred to as graduations, precision and resolution.
