The A&D FX-300iN is a multi-function legal for trade (320 gram capacity 1600 carat capacity accurate to 0.005 Carat) scale that can be programmed to weigh in a wide variety of modes including carats, grams, ounces (AV), pounds, ounces troy, pennyweights, momme, grain and a variety of Tael. It will also do parts counting and percent mode. The unit can be easily set up to weigh in the only the functions you want. Legal for trade scales do not have a calibration function. Part of the requirement to be certified a legal for trade scale is that the user cannot self calibrate. The unit is calibrated at the factory.
For jewelry work, the FX300iN will weigh up to 1600 carats with an accuracy of 0.005 carats and 320 grams with an accuracy of 0.001 grams, making this scale one hundred times more accurate than a 0.1 gram accuracy scale. The FX-300iN comes with an 120v AC adapter and a 3-3/8" tall breeze shield. The scale measures 10-3/8" long by 7-5/8" wide by 6-7/8" tall when the breeze shield is installed. The pan size is 90mm (3-1/2") round.
The FX series features an RS-232 output and built in Win CT software. The display is a advanced vacuum fluorescent for excellent readability. AND of Japan warranties this scale for 5 years.
**Legal for Trade Information
The National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) performs evaluations of weighing and measuring devices for compliance with NIST Handbook 44. Many States require an NTEP Certificate of Conformance for any device to be installed in a commercial application. You can review these states that require NTEP Certificates and States that have Voluntary Registration of Service Agencies and Service Persons (VRSA) by clicking here
NTEP testing does not "assign a legal for trade status" to a device, it simply indicates that the device evaluated has been found to comply with Handbook 44. In a non-NTEP State, for example, a device may not need an NTEP Certificate of Conformance to be used in a commercial application; it may simply be required to meet Handbook 44 requirements and comply with any additional State weights and measures requirements.
The final approval of the device in a specific installation rests with the State, Local, or Federal weights and measures official who determines if the device meets all Handbook 44 requirements, including installation and suitability requirements
