Highland® Portable Precision Balances
Starting From: £165.00

Adam Equipment’s HCB portable precision balance range is a highly versatile balance that is well suited for lab work, field use and many industrial commercial applications. 

The HCB includes built-in parts counting for accurate stock checking and general inventory control. Whilst the percentage weighing application can be used to intricately blend ingredients, perfect for creating cosmetic products, skin creams and soaps.

Compact design allows HCB balances to be stacked on top of each other to avoid damage in storage or transportation, making it ideal and simple to carry multiple HCB models at the same time. Essential for teaching large groups of students mass measurement concepts in busy classroom environments or when conducting field experiments.

The HCB features Adam’s unique patented HandiCal® internal calibration with a built-in mass, and ShockProtect® as a safeguard against shock loading and accidental overload. Calibrate whenever you want without external masses, or use your own certified masses for traceability. A built in rechargeable battery makes the balance able to be used anywhere, whilst the standard RS-232 and USB interfaces give plenty of communication options.

We also offer trade approved variations of the Highland for selling products by weight. For more information about the Highland range of portable precision balances, please contact us.

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.
