Acculab Vicon Digital Scales

#1 Postby Central Desert » Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:07 pm

I would be interested in hearing anyone's experience with Acculab-Vicon Digital Scales or other digital scales ? I purchased a digital scale same brand as my electronic powder dispenser but i find it very in-accurate. Appreciate any advise.

Are they still in production? http://acculab.balances.com/
If going dearer digital look for models that have magnetic force restoration rather than the cheaper strain gauge tecnology.
My scales were Ohaus mechanical to Gempro and to finally AnD FX300i. Sure the FX300i is expensive but on the way I wasted money on the Gempro. Gempro use strain gauge = drifting and while probabaly accurate enough was constantly keeping an eye out for drift and rezeroing. BTW, I still have my old Ohaus mechanical sitting in the cupboard........
Also use a Chargemaster to throw the initial charge - not the most accurate scale around.
