High Accuracy Sample Weighing Backed by Exceptional Sensitivity

Take the smartest value for your budget without compromising weighing performance with the GP-12K Precision Scale from A&D Weighing. Engineered with a 100 mg sensitivity, the A&D Weighing GP-12K presents accurate sample weighing values even if working on laboratory, manufacturing, or industrial apps. Rolling out close weighing results, this top loading scale guarantees uncomplicated weighing recommended for quality control processes, manufacturing operations, daily laboratory tasks, and more. Need other balance alternatives with the same 100 mg division size? Opt for the GP-61KS Precision Scale from A&D Weighing. But if you require something having a higher division size, try the PS 8100.3Y.M Precision Balance from Radwag.

Ultimate Reproducibility for Efficient Sample Mass Weighing

Maintain reproducible measurement values throughout your weighing process to achieve substantial results and save more time for data analysis than re-recording them with the A&D Weighing GP-12K precision balance. Thanks to its 100 mg repeatability, this A&D Weighing GP model brings about precise sample weighing best for routine applications even with multi users considered. For an alternative with a higher repeatability, your choices include the Explorer EX2202 Precision Scale from Ohaus, an equally well-trusted brand.

Essential Weighing from Laboratory to Field

Before procuring a precision balance, make sure you review the sample loads you will be weighing at present as well as in the future. These should always be within the capacity range of the model and won't go over its weighing pan. Using the A&D Weighing GP-12K, you can carry light or heavy substances whether solids or liquids, provided these do not exceed 12000 g at maximum and its 384 mm weighing pan. Since the lab balance features internal calibration, permitting fast self calibration as needed, weighing precision and accuracy won't be an issue. Experimenting on heavier samples? The GP-61K Precision Scale from A&D Weighing or the HY10.32.HRP High Resolution Scale from Radwag offers a higher capacity but with the same readability as the A&D Weighing GP-12K. However, for something similar to this GP series unit but of a different model or from another well-trusted MFG, get the Explorer EX12001 High Capacity Precision Scale from Ohaus instead

Key Features to Take Into Account

Internal Calibration icon Internal Calibration

Never stress out on weighing accuracy with this A&D Weighing GP top loading balance that has an internal calibration feat. Even if the unit is moved from one specific space to another on a regular basis, the balance is capable of quickly recalibrating while considering changes in movement, temperature, stability, and time and then adjusting as necessary.

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

The balance is compliant to ISO standards, following rigorous measures when it comes to preventative maintenance, calibration, routine testing, and more as well as its print guidelines.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Your experiment'se credibility is highlighted with this A&D Weighing balance model because it prints out reports compliant to GLP. Formatted to include not just balance ID, date, and time but also other relevant data to track, without effort activity history, this unit is for non-clinical data submissions, data traceability, as well as quality control purposes.

GMP Compliant icon GMP Compliant

Observing compliance to GMP standards that include reports showing operator details, weighing time, and results included, this A&D Weighing GP-12K top loading scale can be operated for quality testing and management, perfect for food and drug processing, manufacturing, and packaging industries.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

High visibility of measurement data is ensured by the A&D Weighing GP-12K featuring a robust Alphanumeric LCD. Since misreading weighing values are avoided, even if they are inside poorly lit workrooms, achieving improved operational efficiency is no-sweat.

Multi-Device Connectivity and Communication Solutions

Transmitting and retrieving weighing data are two vital capabilities that should be considered when purchasing a top loading balance. With additional connectivity solutions come a more cost-effective workflow. The A&D Weighing GP-12K got you covered as it includes an ethernet port for your wired connections.

Operational Efficiency from A to Z

Boost lab throughput as well as fine-tune lab performance by getting faster measurement weighing results through the GP-12K Precision Scale from A&D Weighing, stabilizing and returning results in just 1.5 seconds. This scale quickly transfers assimilated weighing data to different devices, computers, and even printers since it comes with USB and RS-232 ports. Save more time working on tasks with higher priority with this precision balance because it delivers GLP, ISO, and GMP compliant reports so there's no need to reformat anything.

For higher capacity weighing with the choice of an adjustable swing arm display (GP) or mountable detached display (GP-S). SmartRange feature for improved precision, regardless of tare container weight.

Internal Calibration

The GP internal calibration with an internal mass saves time and money. External calibration requires a great deal of skill, time and an expensive external mass. With our internal calibration with internal mass, the balance is calibrated very quickly.

■ Automatic Self Calibration — Self-calibrates automatically when the balance detects ambient temperature changes.

■ One Touch Automatic Calibration — Allows you to calibrate the balance on demand with just the push of a button.

■ Calibration is essential for accuracy in weighing. For example, in high-resolution balances, changes in sensitivity drift can be caused by changes in the ambient temperature. Take the GP-30K for example, the weight might change by 0.9g with a change of 10˚C ( Sample’s weight: 30kg ).

■ Thanks to our Double Leveraged Super Hybrid Sensor, the GP's motor-driven internal calibration mass is equivalent to a 50kg calibration mass in terms of top loading capacity on the weighing pan. The adjusted weighing accuracy is within +–15 digits in relation to the weighing capacity while conforming to the OIML's Class II balances definitions after using GP's internal calibration mass.

Standard WinCT

WinCT (Windows Communication Tools Software), provides easy transmission of weighing data from A&Dbalances to a computer using the RS-232C interface. Speed of data transfer into Windows applications in a manageable format is limited only by the computer’s capabilities.

RS-232C Interface

Using a USB/ RS-232C Converter, you can transfer data between a USB-equipped PC and a GP balance. This also makes your GP balance hot-swappable meaning that there is no need to turn the balance and/or computer off before disconnecting the balance.
