In this paper, we describe the construction of the Universal Mass Balance (UMB). The working principle of UMB has been tested through parabolic flight in microgravity, normal gravity and hypergravity environment to investigate the independency of measured oscillation frequency to the oscillated mass on gravitational conditions. The frequency was obtained by analyzing the emf signal. Later, the UMB was simplified by using optical detection. Once the UMB is calibrated, the unknown mass can be measured by slightly displacing it from equilibrium position to oscillate. As the frequency is known, the mass of the load immediately can be calculated automatically and displayed. The UMB offers potential applications in space science related field
