The counting mode lets the user count a number of small pieces of the same mass value quickly, effortlessly and precisely. Further, the Automatic Counting Accuracy Improvement (ACAI) function recalculates the average unit weight each time a sample is added to minimize counting errors caused by variations in unit weight. In percent mode, the weight value can be displayed as a percentage of a reference mass, which is useful for target weighing or checking the sample variation. The comparator function makes it faster and more accurate to compare weight (or pcs or %) values by setting upper/lower limit values to display HI, OK or LO indicators. It can reduce such errors as overfilling in packing applications, etc.
Additionally, it is easy to switch between 12 units of measure: gram, ounce, pound, troy ounce, metric carat, momme, pennyweight, grain, Newton, pcs (counting mode), and % (percent mode), in addition to specific gravity. Either tael or tola can be added upon request.
The clearly-visible, LCD display (16 mm character height) has the aid of a backlight, which makes the weighing results easy to read even in a dimly-lit area.
Three models of different capacities and readabilities are available for the EK-EP series; namely, EK-300EP (300 g × 0.01 g), EK-3000EP (3000 g × 0.1 g) and EK-12KEP (12 kg × 1 g). They all come standard with a hygienic and chemically resistant stainless steel (SUS304) weighing pan.
