Ohaus Scout Pro

Parts Counting – The Scout Pro is designed for counting parts for inventory control, parts bagging, receiving, dispensing and ticket counting

  • Select from a sample size of 5, 10, 20 or 50 pieces while in counting mode with
    a quick button press
  • The Scout Pro features user-enabled automatic recalculation of the average piece weight – instead of counting 100 parts for a sample, count 10 and let the Scout Pro count the rest of the sample! For applications where automatic recalculation is not desired, the easy-to-use menu system allows this feature to be disabled
  • The Scout Pro can also be configured for situations where only the counting feature is required

Percent Weighing – Use the Percent Weighing mode to compare samples for compounding, formulation, or quick weight checking. Place your reference weight on the platform, enter the weight into memory, and the display will show the percentage of the sample weight on the platform compared to the reference weight.

Totalization – Use the Scout Pro’s memory function to repeatedly sum the weight on the platform for compounding and formulation. Unlike other balances, the Scout Pro allows totalization up to the limit of the display!

Display Hold – The Display Hold mode allows you to retain the weight of an over-sized package on the Scout Pro’s display. Great for postal and shipping applications!

User-Configurable – The Scout Pro allows you to select active weighing units and modes using the two-button keypad. Scout Pro can be quickly configured using an on-display menu system – there are no cryptic codes to input! A built-in lock switch prevents reconfiguration during use.
