ZK830 High Resolution Digital Counting Scale

The most accurate counting scale on the market.

With its Quartzell™ transducer, the unique design of the ZK830 counting scales offers a sampling accuracy unrivaled by other cell technology on the market today.

Quartzell technology allows a wider range of parts to be accurately counted – while still achieving an accuracy of more than 99.75%.

As industries move to reduce inventory and work closer to a just in time manufacturing process, component count accuracy becomes more critical to operations. The ZK830 can bring full control of stock quantity.

Conventional analog loadcells cannot offer the same level of precision as the Quartzell.

The ZK830 can also be set up as either a dedicated checkweigher or standalone bench balance.

Key features

  • Configurable, modular system: flexible to meet your application needs
  • Packed with innovative functional features, designed with the user in mind
  • Outstanding sampling accuracy
  • 100,000 division, non-legal-for-trade out of the box repeatable accuracy
  • 10,000 divisions legal-for-trade
  • 1 billion internal count resolution
  • Strong rugged base enclosure with over 1100% overload protection
  • RS232, USB and Ethernet connectivity as standard

Dual base option

A base switching option helps to obtain the best possible accuracy with the ZK830, by allowing items to be sampled on a smaller capacity base, while batch counting takes place on a larger capacity base. Base switching can be selected manually, but for optimum speed, it can also be programed to occur automatically.

Easy-to-use indicator

Created with the user in mind, the ZK830’s easy-to-use six key indicator has been designed to keep operator training to the minimum and to speed up the weighing process.

Enhanced functionality

Installing an easy-fit numeric keypad module to the side of the indicator boosts the ZK830’s functionality, giving the operator flexibility to select from up to 40 stored piece weights and tare weights, ideal for harder to count components or when using a second remote base.

Data control

The ZK830 can also link with external PC controlled databases, using simple SMA commands to import and export data from other sources.

Count accumulator

Ideal for use when counting large quantities of the same part, to keep a running total.

Check counting

Designed to make repetitive counting faster and more efficient, this function gives an easily visible under, over or accept window to alert the operator when the required number of parts is reached. Ideal for most packing operations.


Carrying handles allow the scale to be easily moved between different counting tasks. An optional clamp down plate can be used with a battery power pack to mount the ZK830 onto most mobile carts.
