Rugged, Multi-Purpose Balances For A Wide Range Of General Weighing Applications

OHAUS raises the bar in price-performance ratio with the newly-designed Navigator series which is perfect for general weighing applications in laboratory, industrial and education settings. Ruggedly constructed and multi-functional, the Navigator is a powerful balance that can handle a diverse range of weighing applications with features such as fast stabilization time, overload protection at four times its rated capacity and easy operation.

Unique Features:
•Navigator offers essential weighing applications at a competitive price point.

•Advanced weighing technology offers one-second stabilization for fast and accurate weighing results, improving operator efficiency, productivity and throughput.

•Overload protection system that can withstand loads up to four times the rated capacity safeguards the balance.

With an overload protection system which is rated at four times its capacity, the Navigator is ideal for demanding applications in the classroom such as parts counting, percent weighing, and checkweighing. The space-saving design (for NV models only) allows for stackable storage. Additionally, the Navigator’s portability makes it ideal for experiments out in the field.

Laboratory and Research:
Designed to be easy to clean, precise and simple to use in laboratory environments. Simple set up and percent weighing mode make this the ideal solution for laboratory applications such as formulation, quality inspections, testing and experimentation.

Industry and Manufacturing:
Designed to be robust, fast and accurate for ideal use in light medium duty industrial applications, including paint and ink mixing, packaging, sampling and parts counting. Up to 400% safe overload enhances protection of internal components, with an ultra-fast, one-second stabilization time to improve operator efficiency and productivity.

Home Office, Commercial Business and Manufacturing:
Designed to be tough, portable and reliable for ideal use in shipping and receiving, home office and warehouse environments. Battery operation, counting and checkweighing modes also expand range of use for hobbies, inventory management, inspection and quality control. In addition, the Navigator NVT models are available EC Type approved (Class III) for commercial business or any applications requiring approval.

Food and Portioning:

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.
