Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance (3200g Capacity)
Durable scales that are both user-friendly and capable of measuring large amounts of samples at a time can be helpful in busy laboratories. Designed for such environments, the Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance (3200g Capacity) is a top-loading balance that features arrow key navigation and a bright easy-to-read display.
Please note that a calibration certificate for this device must be purchased at the same time by ticking the box at the top of the page. You cannot purchase this certificate for a balance or scale that has already been ordered.
What Are Precision Balances?
Precision balances are also known as top loading balances. They are typically able to accommodate larger sample sizes than analytical balances, however they are not as precise, and therefore won't return the same level of readability. Still, they are able to weigh relatively large loads with far greater precision than standard scales, making them ideal for medical or scientific applications.
Applications for the Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance
The Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance has a capacity range of 0.5g - 3200g, yet still retains a high readability of 0.01g. As such, it is a great choice for measuring sizeable samples to a highly precise figure, and can be used for:
- Parts counting
- Percentage weighing
- Dynamic weighing (e.g. liquids, animals)
- Determining density
- Peak hold
- Cumulative weighing
How Do I Operate the Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance?
With colour-coded navigation and a bright, clear screen, the Solis STB 3202i is very easy to use, even if you don't have a lot of technological expertise. For more information on the set-up and use of your Precision Balance, take a look at the PDF Instruction Manual below:

Ideal for Fast-Paced Environments
Work environments where you don't have much time to spare on complicated equipment would benefit greatly from this balance. Due to its high resolution display and clearly marked arrow keys, it is very easy to navigate, while its large capacity means you can weigh large amounts of a substance or material all at once. This way, you won't have to waste time trying to finding functions or measuring samples bit by bit.
Highly Accessible Interface
To help minimise mistakes and any difficulty reading the balance, it has a large, bright display and well-marked arrow buttons. Additionally, it has multilingual capabilities, so can be used by native speakers of many different languages.
What Is the Capacity of the Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance?
The Solis 3202i Precision Balance has a maximum capacity of 3200g, yet still returns a precise result with a readability of 0.01g. As the pan is big enough to hold large amounts of a sample, it can enable quick, efficient measuring of anything from powders to liquids.
How Do I Calibrate the Solis STB 3202i Balance?
The Solis STB 3202i Precision Balance requires external calibration, which must be carried out each time it's moved to a new environment. You will need to place objects with a known weight on the balance and check that it returns the correct measurement.
Date and Time Printouts for Data Traceability
In adherence with Good Laboratory Practise (GLP) guidelines, data printouts supplied by the Solis SPB are time and date stamped for improved traceability. This can help you keep track of your processes for a more functional, organised laboratory environment.
What Security Features Does This Balance Have?
As this balance is a valuable, high tech piece of lab equipment it has been fitted with a security feature to help reduce the risk of theft. This consists of a security slot for Kensington-type locks and cables, which can prevent a balance from being taken out of a lab or work place.
