Test With The BEST – Quick, Safe And Accurate

A&D’s straight halogen lamp, uniquely designed SRA (Secondary Radiation Assist) filter gives shorter measurement time, thanks to fast and uniform heating. With SHS (Super Hybrid Sensor) featured as the weight sensor, ultra accurate moisture content determination is possible based on high precision weighing of even a small sample. The ergonomically designed pan handle eliminates mishaps when moving a hot sample tray. Standard features include 5 measurement modes, Data Memory function, RS-232C interface, Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate and with a easy-to-see, large VFD display. GLP Compliant. The MX-50 comes with WinCT-Moisture CD-ROM, sample pans (x20), pan handles (x2), tweezers, spoon, test sample (30g of Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate), glass fibre sheet, RS-232C cable, display cover and dust cover.

Quick & Easy Measurements
4 Selectable heating modes from standard, quick, step and ramp that help customize heating curves to your unique sample types for accuracy & precision.

5 Selectable measurement programs to best fit sample and process with STANDARD, QUICK, AUTOMATIC, TIMER, MANUAL
Clear & easy-to-view with the large VFD display means setting values, change in moisture content, action status indicators, and data number are clearly visible.

Safe & Reliable Design
Easy handles & ergonomic design helps to prevent burn injuries while improving workflow movements of samples in and out efficiently.

Self Check functions such as defect check function along with temperature control checks have you covered

Progress window allows easy visibility to see heating process through translucent window.

Quick Reference Card for convenient operating guide is installed at the bottom of the analyser

Compliant & Traceable Reporting

Data Interface is a breeze with RS-232C interface and our WinCT–Moisture software that helps determine measurement conditions as well as optimize time & accuracy

Data memory function allows for test results to be stored and recalled or outputted for additional analysis

GLP, GMP, GCP and ISO compliant with date/time, ID, calibration data and check record outputs

Fast and uniform heating with halogen lamp and innovative SRA technology

Straight halogen lamp and uniquely designed SRA (Secondary Radiation Assist) filter gives shorter measurement time, thanks to fast and uniform heating.

High repeatability
With SHS (Super Hybrid Sensor) featured as the weight sensor, ultra accurate moisture content determination is possible based on high precision weighing of even a small sample.

High moisture content measurement

MX-50 measures the moisture content at 0.01% resolution suitable for mid-low moisture content samples as well as Karl Fischer method, yet requires no special knowledge or training and produces no harmful waste

Standard WinCT-Moisture (for MS&MX) for real-time graph displaying

WinCT-Moisture is an original software application designed to display a graph of moisture content rate change while measuring with a connected PC.

Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate comes as standard for accuracy checking

Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate is a chemical material that has stable moisture content of 15.66% and thus is best to use for accuracy check to maintain the reference value of the analyser

Calibration of the heater temperature (for MS&MX)

With the temperature calibrator (optional), calibration result can be output in the format that conforms to GLP, GMP, ISO.

Memory function
According to sample up to 20 suitable measurement conditions can be stored and recalled, which saves time and prevents the user from making a mistake when setting (10 for MF  5 for ML)
For measurement result, up to 100 data can be stored and output at once (50 for MF  30 for ML)

Five measurement programs

Ergonomically designed pan handle eliminates mishaps such as burns when moving a hot sample pan into or out of the unit from either side.

Wing handle for easy opening and closing of the heater cover

Low maintenance cost assured

The halogen lamp is user replaceable without unit downtime with protective chamber for easy cleaning
(Lamp life 5000 hours).

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below for answers to frequently asked questions.

A calibration certificate proves the accuracy of your weighing equipment. It is very likely that if accuracy matters in your workplace, certification will be required by your industry regulators. They are straightforward to get hold of though. Just ask our team.

If you are trading or transacting anything by weight, you will probably need to demonstrate your weighing equipment is verified for trade use. This gives your customers confidence in your business and will make sure buying and selling run smoothly. We can help get you with relevant approvals for your equipment.

The answer will vary depending on how your equipment is used. As a minimum, we typically recommend once a year but our team can provide advice based on your individual circumstances.

The International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) has established standards for the classification of calibration test weights. Varying from E0 & E1, which are the most accurate to M2 which are commonly used for calibrating platform scales, floor scales and other industrial weighing instruments.

As a rough guide we have listed desired accuracy against class below.

+/- 0.1% – UNclassed Proof Load Test Weights
+/- 0.05% – M3 (Check/calibrate coarse scales)
+/- 0.005% – M1 (Check/calibrate standard scales)
+/- 0.0015% – F2 (Check/calibrate portable balances)
+/- 0.0005% – F1 (Check/calibrate precision balances)
+/- 0.00015% – E2 (Check/calibrate analytical balances)

The choice of weight class depends on the intended use and the level of accuracy required for a particular application. If you’re unsure, talk to our team who can advise you on the right class for your equipment.

If you’re sending a scale back to us for recalibration, it is ideal to use the original packaging. If this is not available choose a sturdy well-padded box to avoid shocks. Where possible, protect the load sensor by removing the weighing pan and any under-pan support and pack these separately in the box. You may be able to use the equipment’s locking pins or screws too.

Do ensure all the paperwork, including your contact details, is included to ensure we can return it once calibration is complete.
