Greifensee, Switzerland, 1st October, 2019. JET gold and carat balances deliver accurate and reliable weighing results for weighing valuable items such as gold, precious metals, diamonds and gemstones. The color touchscreen user interface offers easy access to applications and settings, making JET balances simple for anyone to use. Built-in weighing technology, known as FACT, tests and adjusts the balance in a fully automatic process to ensure ongoing weighing accuracy. And, with multiple connectivity options available, a printer and auxiliary display can be run at the same time. These smart features help jewelers carry out their daily weighing tasks quickly and efficiently. All models are available as Legal for Trade versions to ensure compliance with local trade regulations.

JET gold and carat balances are the first in the jewelry balance market to feature a color touchscreen. The large 4.5" TFT screen has bright, clear figures that are easy to read, even under the glare of the spotlights in a jewelry store. The user-friendly interface is easy to navigate, whether you want to start an application, set up your printer or select your preferred weighing unit.

The performance of every weighing cell is affected by temperature; when the temperature changes, weighing results become inaccurate. JET gold and carat balances feature FACT, METTLER TOLEDO's unique weighing technology, which continuously monitors the ambient temperature. When a change is detected, FACT automatically tests and adjusts the balance using its own internal test weights – no input from the user is required. This is particularly useful in hot or air-conditioned environments in which there may be frequent temperature fluctuations. Of course, FACT can be started manually whenever required.

With three interface connection ports (USB device, USB host and RS232), JET gold and carat balances enable a printer and auxiliary display to be run at the same time. Jewelry retailers have the convenience of being able to show the weight results to a customer on the extra display and then simply print off the results with an order ID. It is even possible to connect JET balances to a computer and transfer all the weighing data automatically using the balance's PC direct function; this not only saves time but avoids handwriting errors too. With the optional EasyDirect™ Balance software, you can collect the data from up to 10 connected instruments.  

Urs Wolfensberger, Global Market Manager for Jewelry Scales at METTLER TOLEDO was pleased to announce the launch of the new balance line, "The new JET balances offer a range of smart features aimed at simplifying weighing tasks and reducing errors for those working in the jewelry sector. Accurate weighing results mean a trusted reputation which is vital when working with valuable commodities."
