What Is the Precision of This Electronic Balance?

January 06, 2024

The precision of an electronic balance determines how small masses can be measured accurately with that balance. W&J Instrument Co. offers a wide range of precision electronic balances that are suitable for measuring tiny masses.

So, what is the precision of this electronic balance? Electronic balances from W&J Instrument Co. come with different precision ratings. Models like WA1003N, WA2003N, and WA3003N have a precision of up to 0.001g or 1 milligram. Other models have a different level of precision.

Let us introduce you to the precision of different electronic balances and tell you how improved these precision electronic balances are.


What Is the Precision of an Electronic Balance?

The precision of an electronic balance refers to the readability of the balance. Imagine you are going to measure a very tiny object. The mass of the object is about 250 milligrams or 0.25g. If you use an electronic balance with a readability of 0 decimal places or 1g, the balance will not be able to measure the mass of the object.

In this case, you will need an electronic balance with a readability of up to 2 decimal places or 0.01g. So, the latter electronic balance is said to have more precision than the earlier one.


Why Is Precision of This Electronic Balance Important?

The reason lies in the main purpose of electronic balances. These balances are used for accurate measurements. When the object mass is large, such as a few hundred or thousand grams, the readability of the electronic balance can be large, such as 1g.

But when you need to measure the mass of a tiny object, the readability should be much lower, such as 0.01g or 0.001g. With a lower readability, the precision will be higher. We mean the electronic balance will be more sensitive and provide an accurate measurement.


Precision of Different Electronic Balances

W&J Instrument Co. currently offers 17 models of precision electronic balances. Let us introduce you to these models and elaborate on the precision of these electronic balances.

Model – WA1003N

This is a precision electronic balance with the lowest capacity among all balances. Its capacity is 0-100g with an accuracy of 0.001g. The repeatability score of this precision balance is less than or equal to 0.002g.

Model - WA2003N

Its capacity is double the capacity of the previous balance. It can measure masses from 0-200g. The accuracy of this balance is also 0.001g with a repeatability score of 0.002g.

Model – WA3003N

Among three precision balances having an accuracy of 0.001g, it has the highest capacity. You can use this balance to measure masses from 0-300g. The repeatability of this balance is the same as the previous ones.

Model – WA1002N

The accuracy of this model is a bit lower at 0.01g. It has a capacity of 0-100g. The repeatability of this balance is less than or equal to 0.02g.

Model – WA2002N

You might have already assumed from the model number that this balance has a capacity of 0-200g. The accuracy and repeatability score remain the same as the previous one.

Model – WA3002N

Its capacity is 0-300g, so you can measure larger masses with this balance than the previous ones.

Model – WA5002N

The capacity of this precision electronic balance is 0-500g. Its accuracy is in two decimal places or 0.01g.

Model – WA6002N

With a slightly higher capacity and the same accuracy, this precision electronic balance is suitable for masses less than 600g.

Model – WA10002N

If the target mass is up to 1000g, this model can be useful. With the same accuracy as the previous one, it can provide a high-precision measurement.

Model - WA20002N

The capacity of this balance is twice the capacity of the previous model. You can measure up to 2000g with an accuracy of 0.01g.

Model - WA30002N

It is the highest capacity balance of this series. You can measure objects of up to 3000g with an accuracy of 0.01g.

Model - WA6001N

This is the smallest balance of the series. Its capacity is 0-600g and its accuracy is 0.1g. So, it is less precise than the previous balances.

Model – WA10001N

It has a capacity of 0-1000g and an accuracy of 0.1g.

Model – WA20001N

The precision rating will be the same for the rest of the balances. Its capacity is 0-2000g.

Model – WA30001N

Its capacity is 0-3000g.

Model – WA50001N

With a capacity of 0-5000g, it is the second-largest balance of the series.

Model – WA60001N

Among all W&J balances, this has the highest capacity at 0-6000g.



A precision balance has many different functions, such as counting, under-weighing, percentage, full range, tare, etc., to give an edge over traditional balances. The precision of an electronic balance indicates the sensitivity of the balance.

The more precise an electronic balance, the more accurate reading to decimal places will you get from that balance. W&J provides electronic balances with a precision from 0.1g to 0.001g.
