About A&D
A&D, an ISO 9001 certified company, designs and manufactures a complete line of electronic balances, scales, weighing indicators, viscometers, and controllers for pharmacy, laboratory, food service, and industrial applications, as well as advanced electronic blood pressure monitoring equipment for both home health care and professional markets. Founded in 1977, A&D is a multinational company with operations in Asia, Australia, Europe, Mexico and the United States. 

The patented Compact Super Hybrid Sensor, A&D, had already provided breakthrough technology with the Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS), which combines the precision of a force restoration motor with the quick response time of a load cell. The key challenge was to reduce the size of the SHS in order to fit within the smaller configuration. Through the development of the unique Double Lever Mechanism (patent pending) A&D was able to reduce the volume of the SHS by 50% while still meeting stringent performance criteria. An additional benefit of the Compact SHS is that it consumes one-half of the current of the full-size model, allowing an optional battery to last up to 8 hours on a single charge.
