OHAUS Explorer®: Antistatic Draftshield

— Redesigned Antistatic Draftshield Provides Unobstructed Access and Visibility —

The all-new Explorer series of analytical and precision balances recently launched by OHAUS Corporation, a leading worldwide manufacturer of scales and balances, features a state-of-the-art draftshield. Made from antistatic coated glass, the draftshield helps block drafts and air currents and also dissipates static charges in the weighing chamber that could adversely affect the weighing results.

The Explorer marks the company’s most advanced new product in more than a decade. Ideal for laboratory use, the balance’s draftshield features a frameless, flip-top design for unobstructed access to the weighing chamber. Lab professionals have broad access, enabling easy placement, adjustment or removal of the sample. The draftshield’s expansive side entry offers 6.3 x 9.4 in (160mm x 240mm), allowing large weigh boats or other large vessels to be freely placed in the weighing chamber.

Unlike a traditional draftshield design, the side doors of the Explorer glide on top-mounted bearings rather than sliding on the bottom rails. This helps eliminate build-up of debris on the track, which can prevent the doors from opening and closing easily. This feature can extend the life of the product, while providing additional quality and practicality during daily weighing operations. The draftshield’s dishwasher safe glass panels, combined with the Explorer’s stainless steel bottom, make cleaning extremely easy.

A draftshield chamber light is also available when the balance is used in low-lighting environments.

The Explorer’s other advanced features include OHAUS’ newly developed SmarText™ 2.0 GUI touch software, four “touchless” sensors, a fully-automatic internal calibration system, and intuitive user setup and modular display design.
