Adam Equipment’s Nimbus Balance Brings Precision and Performance to a Pinnacle

Innovative design enables a compact footprint, so the Nimbus occupies a minimal amount of space on the laboratory bench but maintains the highest level of performance. The base for the Nimbus is formed from a single piece of extruded aluminum, a material that effectively provides superior temperature regulation. The single-piece construction offers greater stability, enabling highly repeatable results.

With a plethora of precision, the Nimbus delivers an enhanced weighing experience for discerning scientists worldwide.

The weighing sensor in the Nimbus is crafted from a single block, and contains a fewer number of parts than a traditional force motor balance. This optimized internal mechanism has been fabricated using hardened materials, helping the Nimbus tolerate rigorous laboratory use. Highly efficient mechanics, combined with improved processing power of the electronics, leads to notably superior performance.

Software for the Nimbus provides all the features necessary for the myriad demands of everyday laboratory work. With 10 weighing units, including a customizable unit, the Nimbus capably handles parts counting, percentage weighing, density measurement for liquids or solids, and dynamic/animal weighing. Intuitively designed, the navigation buttons are large and color-coded, helping users operate the balance and perform functions with a minimal amount of training.

The Nimbus boasts comprehensive communication capabilities. 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.

The Nimbus is available in a choice of 15 different models with a full breadth of readabilities ranging from 0.1mg to 0.1g. Nimbus analytical balances with 0.1mg readability are equipped with a glass-enclosed weighing chamber, which disassembles quickly for easy cleaning. Nimbus precision balances with 0.001g readability come with a round glass shield to help minimize the effects of air movement. Top-loading balances with readabilities of 0.01g and 0.1g are available in a selection of platform sizes, and can be powered by rechargeable batteries for operation in the field. Text prompt to conveniently remind users of the current function/weighing mode are readily visible on the backlit display.

With the introduction of the Nimbus series, Adam Equipment advances the performance level of its wide selection of precision and analytical balances. Adam remains dedicated to its mission to continuously and expeditiously deliver weighing equipment with superior value to professionals worldwide. The Nimbus is currently available throughout North America and Latin America.

Designing for Science

When executive director Graham Shimmield and his colleagues set out to build a new home for Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in 2009, they wanted a structure sensitive to the surroundings of the new locale on the coast of Maine. With the help of their architects, contractors, and engineers, they got just that.

It is a paradox of modern life that we are more connected with greater numbers of people, but we talk less. Studies report fewer face-to-face interactions in developed nations. Interpersonal chats are becoming briefer.

Fieldworthy Instrumentation

A forensics investigator dusts a crime scene for fingerprints. When she finds one, she reaches to her holster, pulls out a handheld device, and aims it at the fingerprint. The device captures the image and also the chemical composition. That chemical analysis reveals that the person who left the print had touched ephedrine—an illegal drug, which is a stimulant that goes by many street names, including meow. With this information, the investigators can use biometrics—the fingerprint— to identify the person and the chemical analysis to start piecing together the crime.
