THE CS2000 PORTABLE TOPLOADING BALANCE A compact digital scale providing total portability in a durable, easy to clean housing and can speed up any weighing task.  The Ohaus CS2000 offers 2000 grams weighing capacity with 1 gram precision.  It's ideal for outdoor or on-location quality control weighing applications when compact portability is a must.

The CS2000 is a common sight in science classrooms throughout the country.  Additional uses include weighing letters and small parcels.  Eliminate time consuming trips to the post office just to determine the weight of your mail.  Visit your local post office and request a free copy of the "Consumer's Guide to Postal Rates and Fees" or download the USPS postal zone chart here and you will be able to apply the exact amount of postage in your office or home.  The scale can pay for itself in no time by eliminating applying too much postage. 

One issue to consider with the CS2000 if you're weighing large 8 ½" x 11" envelopes or parcel is the CS2000's small platform (Oval in shape having a length of 5.75" and a width of 5.25" ) and the positioning of the display.  In many situations the platform is too small and if you attempt to place a 8 ½" x 11" envelope on the platform it would cover the display.  For these weighing applications we recommend the MyWeigh KD7000 over the CS2000 since the MyWeigh KD7000 offers a large 7" x 7" stainless steel platform, the LCD is located away from the platform and the display is positioned at an angle.  The CS2000 is backed with a full 1 year manufacturer's limited warranty.

The Ohaus CS2000 is battery powered and comes equipped with three AA size alkaline batteries so you're ready to get to work the second you open the box.  The Auto-Shut-Off feature extends battery life by automatically turning off after approximately five minutes if no active weighing is occurring.  Additional features include:

  • Power Up Test : When the scale is turned on, all display segments will appear for approximately 3 seconds before resetting to zero.
  • Stable Reading Indication : On the display, theindicator will appear in the lower left corner of the display when a stable reading has been reached.
  • Simple two button keypad :
    1. On/Off/Zero : Pressing this key turns on the scale.  This same key operates the zero feature when the scale is on.  Press and hold this key for three seconds to turn the scale off.
    2. Cal/Unit : Press this key briefly to change the weighing unit from grams to ounces or vise versa.  Press and hold this key to begin the calibration procedure.
  • Easily Calibration Steps (requires optional $40.00 1000 gram test mass).
    1. Allow the scale to warm up and stabilize for two minutes before commencing the calibration procedure
    2. Press and hold the "Cal/Unit" key until the calibration weight (1000 g) flashes on the display
    3. With 1000 flashing, press the "On/off/Zero" key, and the display will read "CAL 0."  After pausing for at least two seconds, place the 1000 gram gently on the center of the weighing platform.
    4. The display will momentarily show "CAL F" and then return to the active weighing mode.  Calibration is complete when the display correctly shows the calibration weight, and the display has stabilized
    5. Remove the calibration weight and turn the scale off.  Now turn on the calibrated scale.
