Balance Information

Adam AFP precision top loading balances are the "affordable alternative" to meet your weighing needs.  It's hard to beat the value the AFP Series offers.  The AFP top loading series of balances use a electro magnetic force measuring sensor similar to the Scientech Series providing great performance.

  • Square 6.3" stainless steel platform
  • Automatic compensation for minor temperature variations
  • GLP compliant software package for calibration print out
  • Digital filters and suppression of the last digit on the display
  • The LCD can be set to weigh in grams, carats, grains, ounces, or pennyweight
  • Push button calibration (external cal only & requires optional calibration balanceweight which we recommend when you purchase the balance.)
  • New for 2004 - Push button internal calibration is now available as an optional accessory for an additional $200

Additional Features

For working in an unstable environment digital filters and suppression of the last digit on the display (in grams mode only i.e.: 20.01> 20.0) facilitate optimal response time and speeds up weighing operations.

Parts counting, percentage weighing & high / ok / low check-weighing

The option of a battery power pack means that the same precision balances can be used in the field.

Bubble indicator with 2 adjustable feet in the back of the balance to ensure the balance is properly setup for optimal performance.

Variable averaging allows the user to set the "stable reading" indicator for fast or slow response and compensate for unstable conditions.

The optional screw-in hanger facilitates below-the-balance weighing for specific gravity applications.

RS-232 interface comes as standard for printing of results using the optional Adam thermal printer or connection to a PC using an aftermarket data collection program enabling the balances to be integrated into an ISO/GLP quality system.


Parts Counting: The AFP/G Series comes standard with a parts counting mode and is perfect for weighing small parts.  The six digit display allows you to count up to 999,999 parts simply by pressing the "F" keypad and cycling through the function settings to the piece counting mode.  Unlike typical counting scales that only allow you to enter a simple of 5, 10, 25, 50 or 100 pieces to determine the average piece weight the AFP allows you to set any sample size you want up to 999,999.  The balance can be tared to eliminate the package/container weight allowing you to count parts directly in the shipping container and eliminating any chance of the parts falling and not making it to the carrier container. 

A good application to use the counting feature might be an electronic kitting house packaging electronic surface mount capacitors or coils to send off to their company's assembly facility.  With the tare feature you can tare out the plastic carriage holder typically used for transporting surface mount components.  Quickly drop the parts in each individual hole until you get the required count shown on the balance's display need for that particular job and sent it off to the surface mount machine.  Eliminate the need to count columns and rows to determine the amount of parts by using the piece counting feature with the Adam AFP/G Series.

Special Note: The AFP Series features special software that can't be disabled which monitors changes in the temperature and trigger an audible warning signal that the ambient temperature has changed enough (typically 6°C from when last calibrated) to warrant recalibrating the balance.  While this feature is great to ensure the utmost accuracy it is also a major nuisance if you did not purchase the optional calibration mass.   The balance will beep once every 30 seconds until the balance is recalibrated.  This audible warning beep is similar to when your smoke detector battery is low.  If you don't have the required calibration mass (each model has a specific required cal mass listed in the specs table above) you'll have a balance that you can still weigh on, but you'll also have a audible chirp approximately every 30 seconds.  We highly recommend the calibration mass if you don't have one when you purchase the balance.  In addition, we are located near Boston, MA and if you're in sunny California or the muggy marshes of Florida, you can rest assured there is a 6°C temperature difference so you'll have the audible warning right when you take the balance out of the box.
