A&D has applied its expertise in the design of waterproof scales to develop the world’s first IP-65 rated 1 mg resolution balance. It is dust-tight and can even be sprayed with water. Think of it as an “accident-proof” balance suitable for use in environments that can render other balances inoperable.
For the user that wants it all, the FZ-iWP adds internal calibration to complement the IP-65 rated dustproof and waterproof features. Here is a balance that be used virtually anywhere.
What does “IP65” mean? The International Protection (IP) Code, as defi ned by the international standard IEC 60529, specifi es the degrees of protection provided by enclosures. The two digits next to IP indicate the levels of protection against solid foreign objects (first digit) and water (second digit). For example, a device rated as IP65 should permit no ingress of dust (level 6) and withstand water jetting from any direction (level 5).
