Many factors can affect the results you obtain from your scale or balance, including the environment where you’re conducting measurements. It’s important to understand which weight fluctuations are caused by vibrations or air currents and which are caused by your equipment. In this post, we’ll go over some common causes of results changes and how to handle them.

Serial Communication, Bits and the Baud Rate

Serial Communication, Bits and the Baud Rate

If you’re interested in a balance’s data communication capabilities, you might have noticed the section concerning baud rate in the manual. What is the baud rate? How does it relate to scales and balances? How can it be used to your advantage? Let’s take a look at serial communication.

It’s time to learn about another (relatively) obscure feature: the peak hold. Available on floor scales and analytical balances alike, it’s a versatile functionality that is not very well known. What does it do? Why is it useful on a weighing scale? How should you use it? Do you need it? Let’s find out.

“Formulating” the Uses of Your Balance’s Formulation Function

“Formulating” the Uses of Your Balance’s Formulation Function

Scales and balances can be helpful to ensure you’re adding the correct amount of ingredients to your recipes and formulations or for scaling up existing formulations. But rather than weighing just one ingredient at a time, what if there was a better, more efficient way? That’s where the scale’s formulation function comes in.

What is Dynamic Weighing?

What is Dynamic Weighing?

You might know about animal weighing, and that it’s sometimes called “dynamic” weighing. But why does it have another name? I s it ever used when weighing something other than animals? What does selectable digital filtering mean? How can you use it to get more reliable results? Let’s find out.
