What is ShockProtect?
Adam Equipment's trademarked ShockProtect feature is specialised technology that helps prevent damage to the internal components of a scale or balance caused by overloading or dropping the device.
Why do I need this feature?
Weighing scales and balances are important investments, and it is essential to handle them with care. The ShockProtect feature provides an added layer of security, so you can perform weighing tasks safely and with confidence. For example, accidents are more likely to occur in busy classrooms or labs. A balance without ShockProtect that is knocked onto the floor is more likely to incur damage to internal components, resulting in decreased accuracy. ShockProtect offers an assurance of quality, ensuring consistent, precision measurements.
What is HandiCal?
HandiCal offers an easy solution to weighing scale calibration. The HandiCal feature provides fast scale calibration without the need of external calibration weights. Unique technology calibrates your balance with the touch of button, eliminating time-consuming calibration procedures.
Why do I need this feature?
Calibration is essential to maintain balance precision, whether you use your balance regularly or occasionally. Regular calibration can help minimise inaccurate measurements that could affect your profit margins when selling by weight. HandiCal eliminates the external calibration process, which can be inconvenient and time-consuming . Furthermore, internal calibration prevents the issue of contaminated calibration weights. Calibration weights are sensitive, and should be handled with lint-free gloves or tweezers. If they happen to pick up dirt or fingerprints, it could result in distorted readings and inaccurate measurements.
