OHAUS Explorer Analytical vs. Arlyn SAW-PX Industrial Balance

A Rugged Precision Balance for Industrial Environments

When comparing the OHAUS Explorer to the Arlyn SAW-PX precision balance, the Arlyn SAW-PX is purpose-built for use in both industrial and laboratory environments, with 20-times the capacity of comparable models.

In fact, this ultra compact scale endures temperatures as low as 10° and as high as 120° Fahrenheit! The expansive pan size and high capacity platform serve larger loads, while a readability of 0.02 makes it equally ideal for minute materials.

Finally, the SAW-PX offers you more communication options. While the Explorer offers wired solutions with an option to upgrade to Ethernet, the SAW-PX provides wireless communication over Wi-Fi and Modbus in addition to the wired solutions.
