    6 S\fTTIN\b UP TH\f BALANC\f  
    Carefully follow the included quick setup guide to assemble the balance. Ensure that you 
    locate the balance on a solid level surface, free from vibration. 
    6.1.1  Levelling the balance 
    After placing the balance in a suitable location, level it 
    by using the spirit level on the front of the balance. To 
    level the balance turn the two adjustable feet at the rear 
    of the balance until the bubble in the spirit level is 
    6.1.2  Warm-Up Time 
    Before you start weighing, you should allow the balance to achieve a stable internal 
    temperature. For accurate weighing to the manufacturer’s specification it is important to 
    power on the balance and allow to warm up for at least 6 hours for load cell mechanisms, 
    and 12 hours for force motor mechanisms. 
    6.1.3  Weighing 
    Insert the power supply cable DC connector to the 
    connector on the rear of the balance. Plug the power 
    supply module into the mains and press the power 
    switch on the keypad to turn on the balance. The display 
    will indicate the balance serial number followed by the 
    software revision number, followed by the maximum 
    capacity of the balance. Next the balance will run a self-
    test by displaying all segments followed by a busy 
    symbol and a line of 7 dashes indicating the balance is 
    in busy mode. Once ready, the display will show a zero 
    weight reading, accompanied by the  0  symbol.   
      Once a suitable warm-up period is complete and you are 
    ready to start weighing, place an item to be weighed on 
    the balance. A stable symbol   is shown when the 
    balance is in stable condition.  It will turn off if the 
    balance is not stable. 
    Exact zero is shown when the “
    0 “ symbol is visible 
    n the top left of the display area.

    6.2    CALIBRATION 
    Units with an ‘i’ suffix after the model name can be calibrated using either internal 
    calibration mechanism or by using an external mass. Units with an ‘ e’ suffix can only be 
    calibrated with an external mass.  Internal calibration option must be enabled in the setup 
    menu options or else external calibration mode will be used when the  [Cal] key is 
    6.2.1  Manual Calibration 
    Pressing the  [Cal] key will start calibration. Calibration can also be initiated by a change 
    in internal temperature or a set time period as determined by the user. 
    Pressing  [
    0/T 
    ] will abort the calibration at any time. 
    Calibration should be performed carefully and in conditions of no vibration, air movement 
    or other disturbance. Make sure the pan is empty, clean, and correctly fitted. 
    6.2.2  Calibration using Internal Calibration mass (if fitted) 
    Note: Internal calibration (if fitted) will only initiate if it is enabled as the default calibration 
    method in the Supervisor level calibration setup menu. 
    On pressing the  [Cal] key the display will show the busy symbol and a line of 7 dashes 
    and then after a few seconds will display ‘ CALIBRA
    ’. Then the busy symbol and a line of 7 
    ashes will reappear, followed by ‘ CAL \bn
     AL \bnCAL \bn
    CAL \bn
    ’. Then ‘ CALIbrA
    ’ will appear again, followed by 
    he busy symbol and a line of dashes. Finally ‘ CAL \b\f\f
     AL \b\f\fCAL \b\f\f
    CAL \b\f\f
    ’ will be displayed, followed by a 
    eep and the busy symbol and a line of dashes. A final beep will sound the end of 
    calibration and the display should return to ‘ 0
    000000 000  g’ or similar. Internal calibration is now 
    complete and normal operations may proceed. 
    6.2.3  Calibration using External Calibration mass 
    Note: The calibration mass used should be a known accurate item, ideally with an 
    OIML or ASTM/ANSI classification appropriate to the accuracy of the balance. 
    On pressing the  [Cal] key, the display will show the balance setting a new Zero condition 
    by showing “
    L\bAdL\bAd L\bAd 0
     0 0
     g”. Make sure the pan is empty, then press the  [Select] key to continue. 
    The display will show the busy symbol and a line of dashes, and then after a few seconds 
    will display the required calibration mass. For example, for a 213e model the display will 
    be “
    LL L 100  100 100
     g” where 100 g is the required calibration mass. 
    Place the selected mass on the balance and press the  [Select] key to continue. The 
    balance will automatically continue. The display will show the busy symbol and a line of 
    dashes, and after calibration is complete it will sound a beep and display “ UNL\bAD
    emove the weight. Another beep will be heard confirming the unloading action. The 
    balance will display the busy symbol and a line of dashes for a few seconds and then 
    sound a beep and return to normal weighing. 
    6.2.4  Automatic Calibration 
    The balance will indicate the need for calibration when the balance has automatic 
    calibration enabled and the set pre-conditions for automatic calibration have been met.  
    C  O  P Y  
    © Adam Equipment Company 2015   13             3016612482 Rev1-Aug15 
    Conditions that will trigger an automatic calibration are: ·  Internal temperature change greater than a pre-set amount (typically 2ºC for Precision balances).  
    ·  Time since last calibration exceeds a pre-set time (typically 4 hours, or 15 minutes  after power is applied). 
    The balance will indicate the need for calibration to be carried out by flashing the “
    symbol on the display. As soon as the balance is calibrated the symbol will be turned off.   
    The Auto calibration feature can be enabled, disabled or changed within the user options 
    to meet the requirements of the users. 
    6.2.5  Calibration Errors 
    Occasionally during calibration an error will be detected. These errors can be caused by:   
    ·  Unstable readings 
    ·  Improper calibration weights being used 
    ·  Large shifts of zero from the factory settings 
    When an error is found a displayed message will be shown and the calibration must be 
    done again.  If the balance has error messages more than once it is possible the 
    mechanics have been damaged.

    10  OP\fRATIONS  
      When the balance is first switched on, it will 
    display the balance serial number, the software 
    revision, the model capacity and then all 
    segments on the display will be shown.  
    Overall the time taken is usually 5 -10 
    If Operator and Supervisor passcodes have been set, the display will show “
    DE EE
    E 0
     0 0
     0 ”. In 
    his case you must enter the passcode to continue, using the numeric entry method (see 
    section  Error! No bookmark name given. ). If passcode is incorrectly entered then the 
    message “
    ERR\bR R\bRR\bR
    R\bR C\bDE
     C\bDE C\bDE
     C\bDE ” will flash, shortly followed by “ 0
    ”.  Once a passcode is correctly 
    ntered, or if passcodes have not been set, the balance will continue as below. 
    The display will show zero reading along with 
    the zero symbol “ 0 ” and the weighing unit 
    ast used.  If automatic time calibration is 
    enabled the balance will calibrate 15 minutes 
    after power up, or again after the pre-set time 
    10.2   PASSCODES 
    This equipment has passcode security functions which can restrict certain operations to 
    particular users. Supervisor and Operator modes are available. If no passcode is set then 
    the default access is Supervisor level. Setting a Supervisor passcode gives the option to 
    lock down key parameters so that they are not available to be changed by operator-level 
    If a passcode has been set to limit access to the weighing functions of the balance then 
    when reset or turned on, or when the  [Select] key is pressed in Operator mode, the 
    display will show “
     0 0
     0 ” followed by “ 0
    ”.  Use the numeric entry method (see section 
    .1. ) to enter either the operator or supervisor code depending on the access level 
    required. The display show the digits entered as they are set. The active digit will have the 
    “ -“ symbol flashing. Make sure to enter the correct passcode to continue.  See Section 
    13.7.  for details. 
    10.3   WEIGHING 
    Press  [ 0/T ] to zero the balance if required. The “0“ symbol will be displayed. 
    Carefully place a mass on the pan and the weight will be displayed with the   symbol 
    on the left hand side of the display to indicate that a stable reading has been obtained. 
    If a container is to be used, place it on the balance and press  [ 0/T ] t
    o tare the weight. 
    When the balance symbol   is on, the “
    Net” symbol will be displayed to indicate that the 
    balance is tared.
