Kern PCD Balance Description
Kern's PCD is a precise, compact and portable balance with a removable display for extra flexibility.
With the flexible display of this unit, it's possible to use the PCD for applications such as measuring toxic, volatile or contaminated substances where the platform is placed inside a glove bag or fume cupboard. The user can then get readings safely from a distance by holding the display unit.
This balance includes a number of different functions, including a PRE-TARE function that calculates and subtracts the known weight of a container (ideal for checking fill levels), a programmable user interface and a dedicated recipe function which allows a container plus all of its ingredients to be measured individually before a net total is created.
