Scout Pro’s design is as protective as it is practical. Its sealed front panel, molded spill ring provides much needed protection from students’ spills and the removable stainless steel platform makes Scout Pro easy to keep clean. While the ability to operate on either battery or AC power adds to Scout Pro’s built-in portability, its integral security bracket accommodates most security cables, making sure that your Scout Pro is only portable when you want it to be.

Scout Pro Square Version

Built to last and designed specifically for educators. That’s the Ohaus Scout®Pro precision balance. With proven durability and new features for today’s teachers, it’s the classroom balance you’ve been waiting for:

  • Resists rough handling and shock 400% better with new internal load cell protection design.
  • Easy to use for students of all skill levels with simple two-button operation.
  • Backed by reliable Ohaus service and support that teachers have trusted for nearly 100 years.
  • Scout® Pro – Proven to go the distance for Educators year after year.

Ohaus Scout Pro balances offer advanced features, high precision and decent accuracy.  They are popular in classrooms, but can be used for several simple weighing and counting applications.  Scout SP6001 comes with larger square pan design rather than the round platform found on models with 0.01 g resolution.

Standard Features:
  • Maximum Protection – Scout Pro is designed with mechanical and software protection against shock and overloading which can cause damage to the weighing cell. An integrated shipping lock protects the weighing cell during transportation or storage
  • RS232 or USB Connectivity – Scout Pro interface accessories are easy to install at anytime, even after purchase. The data cable is integrated in the kit, eliminating the need for additional cables
  • Multiple Application Modes – Scout Pro features Enhanced Parts Counting, Percent Weighing, Totalization and Display Hold
  • Strain Gauge Loadcell
  • 2 Year Limited Warranty
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.
