The Ohaus C11P75 digital compact bench scale has a 75kg capacity with 0.05kg increments, an ABS plastic housing and weighing pan, user-selectable US or metric units, and a 1.0″ high LCD. It has a battery pack power supply with three C-cell batteries (not included) and an AC power adapter. The scale has a low-battery indicator and an automatic power-down function that conserves battery life. It uses a calibration weight (sold separately) for initial balance calibration. Handles formed into the housing allow for portability. This digital compact bench scale is European Conformity (CE) compliant for quality assurance and is suitable for a variety of weighing tasks, such as in a veterinary office or mail room.

Balances and scales are measuring instruments used to determine the mass and weight, respectively, of an object. Unlike a balance, a scale’s accuracy is affected by gravity and must be recalibrated if it is relocated. In practice, the terms balance and scale are frequently used interchangeably, and the results are displayed in a variety of units, such as gram (g), ounce (oz), pound (lb), troy ounce (ozt), pennyweight (dwt), carat (ct), momme (mom), grain (GN), and tael (tl). The empty weight of a container used to hold objects (tare weight) on the balance or scale is removed prior to weighing, so that the scale reads zero with the container in place. The precision of both balances and scales is determined by the requirements of their intended use, and can be 0.0001g or better for analytical balances. Precision is verified and maintained with periodic calibration. For commercial use, scales and balances may be certified by organizations such as NSF International and National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP). Balances and scales may include data interfaces that allow connection to a computer, printer, or remote display. Balances and scales are made suitable for the environment in which they are used with protective housings, sealed keypads, and lighted displays. They may have built-in functions for tasks such as pill counting in pharmaceutical applications, postage calculations in shipping applications, or weight-totaling in warehouse applications. Balances and scales are used in a wide variety of applications and accommodate a wide range of weights.
Ohaus manufactures scales and balances for laboratory, educational, retail, food, and jewelry applications. The company, founded in 1907, is headquartered in Parsippany, NJ.
