Application Note: Solutions Provided by the BM Series Part I: Adding an Anti-static Function
3 October 2018

The BM Series of micro-balances went on sale in December 2010 as A&D's flagship line of analytical balances. The BM Series was considered a flagship line not because they are the only micro-balances made in Japan. We envisioned this series being used for research, development, and analysis in leadingedge fields in Japan. Our development objectives were 1) anti-static countermeasures and 2) the documentation of weighing performance in user environments. The "Development Stories" series will describe in detail how these objectives were met, including the processes used to arrive at the solutions. This installment covers countermeasures for static electricity and the next installment will cover the documentation of weighing performance in user environments.
