The first in the new Apollo series of balances, the GX-A/GF-A Precision models, provide ideal weighing results—even under the most challenging lab or production settings. The electronically controlled load function generates a less-than-two-minute load between 0.3% and 3% of the weighing capacity by altering the equilibrium state of the weigh sensor ten times. The impact shock detection function displays the magnitude of impact shocks to the weight sensor at four levels, with audible notification for higher levels of impact which should be avoided, and the flow-rate display function calculates and displays the mass/volume flow rates to close the “time-clock disparity” found with traditional PC methods. This function also compares flow-rate data to ensure it is kept within designated limits.
