The Extech SC600 is a professional electronic counting and weighing scale with load cell transducer for high accuracy and performance.
The SC600 is microprocessor controlled and uses a load cell transducer for high accuracy and optimum performance. It features a large measurement capacity, high resolution, and an easy-to-read LCD display. A slide switch on the back of the scale is easily accessed to allow for the selection of measurement units in grams or in ounces. Data is stored internally even upon power down. The RS-232 PC interface allows for the transfer of measurement data between the scale and a computer.
The high precision counting function includes preset counting sampling number selections of 10, 20, 50, or 100 pieces. The unit can be powered with batteries or through an AC adaptor. Additional features include a heavy duty ABS plastic housing for durability and adjustable rubber feet for leveling.

Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley are figuring out when it comes to forest fires, sometimes you’ve just got to let it burn. Gabrielle Boisramé, a hydrologist with the university, and a team of fellow researchers wanted to figure out if the standard practice of fire suppression would have any impact on the flow of water through the forest. To do so, they used the Illilouette Creek basin of Yosemite National Park as the setting for a natural experiment. In that specific plot, when lightning strikes on dry, hot days and starts a fire, land managers let it burn out on its own, rather than suppress the blaze. Park employees adopted this practice in the area in the 1970s and have stuck with it since then.Read More
A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
