New heavy-duty balance: Stronger, easier to use and better-connected

Feb 20 2024

Adam Equipment will be at this year’s analytica show to unveil its new Luna LBL Heavy-Duty Precision Balance. 

With more connectivity options than ever, along with an improved precision load cell and rigid frame for better accuracy, the LBL offers more than the Nimbus NBL it replaces. It will be available to order from May. 

More connectivity 

The LBL boasts RS-232 and USB connectivity for sending GLP-compliant reports to printers and PCs. New from Adam is the RJ45 ethernet output, meaning the balance can be connected to a computer network. Later this year, Bluetooth connectivity will be an option. 

 Greater precision 

As with the Nimbus NBL range the Luna LBL replaces, all models come with 0.1g accuracy. However, capacity options now include a higher 34kg model – as well as 14kg and 24kg offerings. An improved precision load cell as well as a rigid frame provides better accuracy at high resolution, underneath a grade 304 stainless steel weighing pan.

Weighing results appear on a larger display – taken from Adam’s standard Luna balance range – with large, 24mm-high white digits on a contrasting black background. This makes readings clearer, even from distances. As with Adam’s established Luna balance range, functions and weighing modes like percentage weighing, dynamic weighing, checkweighing, check counting and density determination have all been made easier to access and use.

An optional weigh-below hook allows suspended weighing to be carried out.

Adam’s 5-year warranty

Also new for the Luna LBL is an optional rechargeable battery, plus the display detaches and can be mounted to a wall or worktop. A lockdown device prevents unauthorised users accessing the device.

The LBL’s warranty cover, in line with the rest of the Adam Luna range, is five years.

Adam’s Product Manager, Shaun Barker, said: “The Adam Luna LBL Heavy Duty Precision Balance is perfect for demanding weighing applications in laboratories. It’s stronger, easier to use and better-connected, and with a 5-year warranty, demonstrates that this is a balance you can trust. We can’t wait to unveil it at Analytica, and let delegates see and try it for themselves.”
