Using the Lab Balance Model Number to Calculate Capacity and Readability

If you have a Precisa lab balance, and require a certain capacity or readability, the helpful guide below allows you to interpret the capacity and readability form the Precisa Model Number as seen below:

Eg. XB3200D = Capacity: 3200g

Readability: 0.01g

The number used in the model number (3200) is the max capacity (or at least within a couple of hundred grams).The readability can be worked out from the suffixed letter/s (D):

  • G = 1g
  • D = 0.1g (deci)
  • C = 0.01g (centi)
  • M = 0.001g (milli)
  • A = 0.0001g (analytical)
  • SM = 0.00001g (semi-micro)
  • [2 letters] – [DR or FR] = eg. IBK 34000DG-FR 0.1g/0.01g (dual range/floating ranges)
