Innovative design enables a compact footprint, so the Nimbus occupies minimal space on the laboratory bench. The Nimbus base is formed from a single piece of extruded aluminum, offering stability and highly repeatable results. Solid metal construction throughout the balance provides the durability to withstand chemicals and rigorous daily use.

An optimized weighing sensor contains fewer parts than a traditional force motor balance, improving the balance’s lifespan. Efficient mechanics plus improved electronics provide more consistent readings. With numerous weighing units including a customizable unit, Nimbus capably handles parts counting, percentage weighing, density measurement for liquids or solids, and dynamic/animal weighing. Intuitively designed navigation buttons are large and color-coded, helping users operate the balance with minimal training. Convenient text prompts are visible on the display, reminding users of the current function/ weighing mode.

The Nimbus boasts comprehensive communication capabilities, so it is ideal for use with Adam DU software, which is used to efficiently gather and analyze information from multiple balances. Data collection and transmission are optimized with the Nimbus’s USB and RS-232 interfaces, while a third interface allows for an optional remote display.

Nimbus analytical balances with 0.1mg readability have a glass-enclosed weighing chamber, which disassembles quickly for cleaning. Nimbus precision balances with 0.001g readability have a round glass shield to help minimize effects of air movement.

Nimbus balances can be easily calibrated using external weights. Whether performing basic data printing or advanced communication with a LIMS system, the Nimbus can meet the requirements. GLP printouts are available with time, date and other essential information. Laboratory users can learn about the Nimbus range through a new series of informational and instructional videos that demonstrate setup and operation of the many features and functions offered by the Nimbus.
