AD-4712,/14A/15: Models will be available thru Summer, 2003

AD4715 moisture balance A&D-4715 Digital Moisture Balance offers fast and easy moisture percentage determination, with a weighing resolution of 0.001 gram.  It's the ideal choice to use in your quality control program for a wide range of varied samples.  Prediction algorithm greatly reduces the time necessary to obtain an accurate moisture content in only 5 minutes.  Using Loss-on-Drying technology, A&D incorporates an infrared lamp to provide even heat distribution for effective moisture content determination & avoids burning samples.

Non-Volatile Memory preserves temperature & time settings after the AD-4715 is turned off.  Now you can prevent the loss of data during power failures or inadvertently shutting unit off.  Also, allows recall of settings at a later date unless changed.  This speeds repetitive sampling such as determining solids loading in a wastewater treatment facility.

Amazing new LCD displays a wealth of information including: Moisture Content, Elapsed Time Indication, Year/Date/Time, Remaining Indication, Temperature, Unit, Mode, Output, and Code.  Simple interfacing to a computer via the built-in RS232C interface and WinCT balance communication software makes recording data into MS Word or Excel a breeze.

There is also the optional A&D DPU-411 thermal printer for providing a graphic printout that provides a record of each test.  Now record keeping & test reports couldn't be easier with the DPU-411.  Included is a full chronological list of time, temperature and moisture percentages detected during 10 second time cycles, as well as a graph of the test and a record of the Sample Code, Date/Time, Condition Number, Setting temperature, Mode (Prediction/Comparison) and Wet or Dry mass in grams.
