Other Functions for Ensuring More Convenient Use
Shimadzu balances have been designed with on-site measurement in mind in response to users' requests for convenient on-hand functions.
This Shimadzu-exclusive function allows measurement data to be imported to Excel and other Windows® applications. The interface and import software is already built-in, so all you have to do is to connect by just one cable. No fixing of attachments or troublesome software installation is required whatsoever. (Compatible with Windows® from Windows® 95 onwards. Excluding CE.)

Keys exclusively for menu operations have been set aside from the measurement keys. Menus can be operated intuitively using the cross cursor key.
During operation, if you want to make display slightly more stable or, alternatively, want to improve the response speed, you can make single-step adjustments without interrupting measurement. A special indicator for instantly showing adjustment status is also provided.
The RS-232C interface is built-in as standard. When connecting to the PC, there is no need to prepare or attach a separate interface.
A built-in piece counting function enables the balance to be used as a counting scale (piece counter, piece scale).
The bar length changes according to the weight. A very handy function since it allows you to see at a glance how much more can be placed on the balance for weighing.
A built-in specific gravity calculation function allows the balance to also act as a hydrometer by adding on the optional specific gravity measurement kit.
A hook for suspending the bottom dish from the bottom of the balance is provided as standard.
Data can be automatically output at preset time intervals within the range 1 sec to 99 mins 59 secs in accordance with the balance's internal clock.
Automatically outputs data as each measurement is made. Combination with WindowsDirect creates a handy weigh-and-record system.
Setting the upper and lower limit values in advance allows pass, proper weight or underweight states to be displayed according to the sample weight. Output is via the relay contact signal and is notified by a buzzer. (optional)
The balance can also be used outdoors or in other places without a power supply by connecting dry cells or an external battery (optional).
Pass/fail judgment results such as right weight, over- and underweight are notified by sounding of a buzzer. (Comparator Buzzer (option) required)
This function detects and holds the balance's min. and max. indicated values. This can be used for simple fracture, tensile and compression tests.
The weight of mice, rats, rabbits, and various other small animals can be measured. Stable indications can be obtained even if the animal moves.
This function comes in handy when preparing multiple types of samples by weighing them one at a time.
Weighing is possible, of course, in dark places, and measurement over a prolonged period of time at the regular work site can be performed without your eyes tiring.
