How accurate and sensitive is the A&D Weighing GP-12K Precision Scale against other 100mg readability balances available?

GP-12K Readability

With a readability of 100mg, the GP-12K can handle most basic weighing tasks within your lab. The GP-12K is part of the A&D Weighing GP series ideal for applications such as laboratory testing and chemical analysis.


How precise is the GP-12K Precision Scale compared to other 100mg readability balances?

GP-12K Repeatability

The GP-12K offers 100mg repeatability. Often expressed as standard deviation and important to constantly producing the same results when the same weight is placed on the lab balance many times, repeatability is one factor that can prove accuracy and validity.


What is the response time of the GP-12K Precision Scale in comparison with other 100mg readability balances?

GP-12K Stabilization Time

The time that the GP-12K balance takes to stabilize from the time you put your sample on it and displays results is 1.5 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions for the GP-12K Precision Scale:

Can I connect a printer to the GP-12K?

Since the GP-12K does have a USB connection, you can connect it to a printer. If you already have an RS232 printer, it will also work on the included RS232 port of the GP-12K.

Can the GP-12K be connected to my lab's network?

The GP-12K does not have a built in Wi-Fi. But the GP-12K does have a built in Ethernet port so you can connect it over your existing wired network.

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.
