CB balances can manage most small tasks, such as measuring compounds in chemistry classes, portioning at food service establishments, or weighing small animals. Compact and portable, the CB transports easily to the field, or from bench to bench in a science classroom. The CB is powered by battery or an optional AC adapter. A sealed keypad and one-piece housing make the CB simple to clean, and help protect internal components from dirt and spills.
