EDX Features

Enclosure: Designed to NEMA4X/IP55. Suitable for continuous outdoor use.

Accuracy: 0.1% of capacity.*

Repeatability: 0.1% of capacity.*
* Normal resolution mode.

Ultimate overload: See table above

Safe overload: 200% of capacity

Body protection: Aluminum capacities are anodized. Alloy steel capacities are electroless-nickel plated.

Bearings: Unmatched repeatability attained by needle bearings in shackle pin holes up to EDx-10K. Precision machined shackles act as inner race.

Shackles: Forged industry standard anchor shackle bows, galvanized finish. Models up to EDx-10K use precision machined shackle pin. Higher capacities use forged pin.

Display: 128 x 64 dot-graphic LCD display shows up to 6 digits 1.0 (26 mm) high plus annunciators and softkeys. Digits are .11 inches (7mm) thick for unmatched readability.

Display update rate: 2 times per second.

Connector: Recessed sealed connector may be used for direct serial communications or connection to a Communicator remote.

RS-232 / RS-485 communication: Print or extract data easily. Continuous output can drive a scoreboard. Configurable poll character.

Calibration: Traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Certificate included with curve of readings. Passes only with three consecutive confirming runs, with all points in specification.

Battery life: 320 hours typical use with two C-cell alkaline batteries. 40 hours typical with Radio Link system.

Operating temperature: -4 F to 140 F (-20 to 60 C)

Included with instrument: Shipping/storage crate(s), batteries, manual and certificate of calibration.

Options: 2.4 GHz radio board. Display backlight.
