Shimadzu balances have been designed with on-site measurement in mind in response to users' requests for convenient on-hand functions.

Windows®Direct
This Shimadzu-exclusive function allows measurement data to be imported to Excel and other Windows® applications. The interface and import software is already built-in, so all you have to do is to connect by just one cable. No fixing of attachments or troublesome software installation is required whatsoever. (Compatible with Windows® from Windows® 95 onwards. Excluding CE.)
Menu Operation Key — Easy-to-Operate Key Layout
Keys exclusively for menu operations have been set aside from the measurement keys. Menus can be operated intuitively using the cross cursor key.
Easy Setting - Just Right for Your Weighing Application
During operation, if you want to make display slightly more stable or, alternatively, want to improve the response speed, you can make single-step adjustments without interrupting measurement. A special indicator for instantly showing adjustment status is also provided.
Built-in RS-232C Interface
The RS-232C interface is built-in as standard. When connecting to the PC, there is no need to prepare or attach a separate interface.
Piece Counting Mode (Counting Scale)
A built-in piece counting function enables the balance to be used as a counting scale (piece counter, piece scale).
Analog Bar Graph Display
The bar length changes according to the weight. A very handy function since it allows you to see at a glance how much more can be placed on the balance for weighing.
Specific Gravity Measurement
A built-in specific gravity calculation function allows the balance to also act as a hydrometer by adding on the optional specific gravity measurement kit.
Standard Below-Weigh Hook Installed
A hook for suspending the bottom dish from the bottom of the balance is provided as standard.
Interval Timer
Data can be automatically output at preset time intervals within the range 1 sec to 99 mins 59 secs in accordance with the balance's internal clock.
Auto Print
Automatically outputs data as each measurement is made. Combination with WindowsDirect creates a handy weigh-and-record system.
Comparator (Pass/Fail Judgment)
Setting the upper and lower limit values in advance allows pass, proper weight or underweight states to be displayed according to the sample weight. Output is via the relay contact signal and is notified by a buzzer. (optional)
Battery Drive
The balance can also be used outdoors or in other places without a power supply by connecting dry cells or an external battery (optional).
Buzzer Support
Pass/fail judgment results such as right weight, over- and underweight are notified by sounding of a buzzer. (Comparator Buzzer (option) required)
Peak Detection
This function detects and holds the balance's min. and max. indicated values. This can be used for simple fracture, tensile and compression tests.
Built-in Animal Measurement Mode
The weight of mice, rats, rabbits, and various other small animals can be measured. Stable indications can be obtained even if the animal moves.
Stacking Measurement
This function comes in handy when preparing multiple types of samples by weighing them one at a time.
LCD with Backlight
Weighing is possible, of course, in dark places, and measurement over a prolonged period of time at the regular work site can be performed without your eyes tiring.
All-metal Housing
All the housing parts are made of metal for high durability of components and quality of exterior case.
