Equipped standard with an RS-232C connector, a USB device and a USB host. You can now
simultaneously send output to both a computer and printer or connect a USB flash drive, a
barcode reader, or an external numeric keypad.
USB and RS-232C
are standard
USB host is available
for APW
USB flash drive
Connecting a USB memory device allows you to record large amounts of weighing data in CSV format. Used in
combination with the interval output function, it also enables recording of long-term changes over time.
Example of a record:
File name
Date and time
Weighing value
Display capture function
Weighing display can be recorded into USB memory in BMP format. User name,
date/time, setting can be done with display information.
Numeric keypad
Connecting a common external numeric keypad makes it easier to enter numeric values. This is especially
useful for entering the mass value of weights, setting upper/lower limit values for the comparator function, or
entering the sample count during piece counting mode.
Barcode reader
A barcode reader can be connected. Simply reading a barcode makes it possible to input user ID/Password. It is
possible to manage sample IDs using barcodes.

Because the pixel elements in the organic electroluminescence display emit light, the screen can be seen clearly even in dark locations.
Multi-language display capability* provides a more intuitive operating interface. A wider viewing angle has also improved the visibility of
measurement values, which helps increase the efficiency of measuring operations.
Clearly visible from the side
English example
Exceptional Visibility
The visibility remains the same even when viewed from different angles. The viewing angle is a wide expanse of ±85 degrees, both vertically and
horizontally. That means the display is clearly visible even when working beside the balance. A high-resolution dot-matrix display makes it easy to
read even detailed text.

•Record function
Record output with date, time and operator name.
pH level of mobile phase (eluent) solutions used in liquid chromatographs is adjusted to improve separation of components and extend the life of
columns. This pH adjustment process is performed using a buffer solution. Currently, the most common method is using a pH meter to measure
the pH as the solution is prepared; however, this process requires considerable time and effort, which can cause operational bottlenecks.
An alternative method is available that does not require a pH meter. It involves preparing solutions by weighing fixed theoretically calculated
quantities of an acid and base.
AP series supports weighing these acids and bases. If the type and quantity of the buffer solution is specified, the balance displays the type and
quantity of sample that should be weighed. Then the buffer solution can be prepared easily by adding water to the specified quantity of sample
weighed accordingly.

Typically, preparation of a standard sample solution requires tedious calculations.
AP series simplifies the process with automated calculations.
Example of preparation by AP series
Weigh 25 mg Amitriptyline to make standard solution
Standard sample of Amitriptyline is Amitriptyline Hydrochloride .
Standard solution of Amitriptyline
Calculation is essential to determine part of Acidum hydrochloricum by molecular weight to make 100
mg/mL Amitriptyline solution.
Amitriptyline
100 mg
Molecular weight of Amitriptyline: 277.4
1 mL
Molecular weight of Acidum hydrochloricum: 36.5
Molecular weight of Amitriptyline Hydrochloride: 277.4 + 36.5 = 313.9
Amitriptyline Hydrochloride
To compare the molecular weight of Amitriptyline Hydrochloride with Amitriptyline, the following
calculation is necessary.
Amitriptyline Acidum hydrochloricum
Molecular weightt
Molecular weight
277.4
36.5
313.9/277.4 = 1.132
The molecular weight of Amitriptyline Hydrochloride is 1.132 times of Amitriptyline.
So, if 25mg of Amitriptyline is used, it follows that the weight of Amitriptyline Hydrochloride should be:
25 mg × 1.132 = 28.3 mg.
Hence, 28.3 mg of Amitriptyline Hydrochloride is needed to make the correct standard solution.
No need for manual calculation
AP series can automatically calculate the sampling weight using the molecular amount of the standard sample, molecular
weight of unnecessary sample, and the target value in order to reach the correct concentration solution.
Just weigh the target weight value on display and the target weight of the standard sample can be obtained.

Response and stability settings can be changed during measurements with a single touch. Changing the settings for different applications can make
it even easier to use.
The indicator is operated using the left and right arrow keys. Moving the setting toward [R] prioritizes response, which
makes it easier to operate the balance. Conversely, moving it toward [S] makes it easier to stabilize weight values,
which can improve readability in environments with vibration.
