New Video Spotlights Adam Equipment's Highland® Portable Precision Balance


Highland balances are ideal for science classrooms

Danbury, CT (PRWEB) - Adam Equipment, a manufacturer of balances and scales for professionals worldwide, has produced a new video on the Highland portable precision balance. The video demonstrates that Highland balances deliver the best value for school science classes, with more features and accessories than other comparable balances.

Available in eight models delivering precision readabilities in capacities up to 3,000g, Highland is packed with features that make it an excellent choice for education. 

  •  Adam’s patented (internal) HandiCal® allows you to calibrate right in the classroom, without using external weights
  • Three-point ShockProtect® helps prevent damage to internal components caused by overloads
  • Highland balances can be stacked, thanks to a unique design
  • An optional Kensington-type lock and cable can be used to help deter theft

The backlit display is easy to read and offers a capacity tracker that indicates used and available capacity while you work. Highland displays results in several weighing units, including grams, pounds, ounces and more. Unwanted weighing units can be disabled to avoid weight reading errors.

A built-in, rechargeable battery lets you use the Highland almost anywhere, while an AC adapter/charger also is included. For density or specific gravity determination, a hook is included for weighing below the balance. Weigh your samples in air, then weigh your samples submerged in liquid to calculate specific gravity. The removable draft shield helps reduce errors caused by air currents. Both USB and RS-232 interfaces are included for easy communication with computers and printers for data analysis and collection.
