Key Features

  • Fast stabilisation time
  • Increased capacity
  • Advanced weighing technology
  • Repeatable and reliable weighing results
  • Stackable design – easy storage (excluding 1mg model)
  • Multiple connectivity options

Scout has multiple connectivity options – RS232, USB Host, USB Device, Ethernet and Bluetooth®*. With expanded connectivity options, the OHAUS Scout offers more versatility for convenient data logging, communication and remote functionality. Utilize the Bluetooth accessory to remotely control the balance from your mobile device or tablet for Android™**. Perform functions such as Zero, Tare, Print, Power Off and more. With the USB Host option, you can simply save and transfer data from the balance to a USB drive.

The superior mechanical overload protection system of the Scout is comprised of a high-strength stainless steel pan and an impact-resistant plastic pan support. This enables the balance to safely withstand loads up to 10 times its rated capacity, and survive in demanding classroom environments where capacity may be frequently exceeded. Scout’s unique stacking and storage cover allows the balance to be safely stored away when not in use. The integrated transportation lock protects the load cell from damage during stacking storage and transportation.
