Original Press Release:
Ohaus Creates an Instant All-Star in Scout(TM) Pro Portable Electronic Balances
Pine Brook, NJ (March 3, 2003) -- Ohaus Corporation, a leading manufacturer of balances for the laboratory, education, industrial and specialty markets worldwide, is pleased to announce the launch of its new line of Scout(TM) Pro portable electronic balances. With its predecessor, the Scout II, already among the most popular electronic balances on the market, the new and improved Scout Pro is destined for stardom in every arena.
The Ohaus Scout Pro balances offer a number of features that cannot be found in any other product in their class, including simple, two-button operation, optional USB or RS232 connectivity and multiple application modes including parts counting with auto optimization, percent weighing and specific gravity calculation. All of these new features and more are backed by the industry leading warranty, service and support that come standard with every Ohaus product.
With capacities and readabilities ranging from 200g x 0.01 g to 6000g x 1 g, Scout Pro offers a wider range of choices and higher resolutions to accommodate more applications than ever before. While its cutting edge design makes Scout Pro stand out in any crowd, there is much more than a simple makeover at work behind the new look of Scout Pro.
Scout Pro's simple, two button keypad, combined with a large, crisp LCD display and advanced software capabilities come together to create an incredibly intuitive new man/machine interface that is at the heart of the new Ohaus Pro Series of balances. In combining these key components, Ohaus has created a series of new products that make it easy for users of all skill and experience levels to perform a wide variety of operations with confidence and ease right out of the box.
For example, only Scout Pro offers built-in application modes including weighing, parts counting with auto optimization, and percent weighing. Only Scout Pro offers a totalization feature that allows repeated summing to the limit of the display, rather than the limit of the balance capacity. Only Scout Pro offers display hold capability within its product class and only Scout Pro offers specific gravity determination with a toploading kit or below balance hook For the education market. All of these operations can be performed with little or no training, thanks to the products' two button keypad, large LCD display and intuitive, easy to follow visual menu prompts.
Scout Pro's new design is as protective as it is practical. Its sealed front panel, molded spill ring and stainless steel platform provide much needed protection from spills and make 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 also features multiple weighing units, including g, kg, oz, lb, lb:oz, oz t and dwt. Additional standard features include a stability indicator, overload and underload indicators, low battery indicator, programmable energy saving auto shut-off, AC adapter and span calibration mass on the 200g, 400g and 600g models. Whether in the lab or the classroom, on the jewelry counter or the shop floor, the all new Scout Pro portable electronic balances have all the tools to help make your team a winner.
One of three new Pro Series products launched at National Manufacturing Week, the Ohaus Scout Pro line sets new standards for ease of use and sophisticated operation. The value of the Pro Series products' many technological advances is best illustrated in the highly intuitive man/machine interface that makes each of these products a Pro within its respective class. This new man/machine interface may very well earn Scout Pro MVP honors among portable electronic balances this year.
Every Ohaus product is backed by the industry-leading service and support that has become synonymous with the Ohaus name.
