Well, you won't really need shades but, you won't have a problem reading your weights thanks to the two backlit LCD displays on the My Weigh iBalance 311. There is a display on the front and back of the scale, just in case.
If you're not up for a brain numbing count-a-thon, you can always put the i311 to work. The i311 is great at counting and will let you know just how many pieces you have in no time. Just weigh a sample amount, push a few buttons then load this precision scale up with all your parts and pieces.
If you want it to, the i311 will send your weight readings straight to your computer. Hook this scale up to your computer through the built in RS-232 port and stop writing down all those weights by hand.
No matter where you plan on doing your weighing, you can be sure air drafts won't be able to interfere. The i311 has an attached wind-shield to keep drafts, including those from breathing too close to the scale while you're weighing those ever-so-precious pieces of whatever it is you weigh, from messing up your weight readings.
Sometimes, having unwanted weight on your scale is just plain unavoidable. Don't worry your pretty little head. The i311 has a tare feature that will remove weight from your readings with, literally, a push of a button. Just put your weighing tray, bowl, scoop or whatever on the scale and press the "TARE" key. Now the scale is set back to zero and you can add the goodies you really want to weigh.
If your iBalance needs a little tune-up, don't worry. You can calibrate this precision scale all by yourself. It's so easy, all you need to get your i311 back in tip-top-weighing shape is a 200 gram calibration weight (included!) and, of course, the iBalance user manual.
The i311 has a built in liquid level indicator and adjustable feet to help you get it nice and level before you start weighing. Level scale = accurate weight readings.
