NAME AND TYPE OF INSTRUMENT
The Avery Berkel XM 100 Non-Automatic Weighing Instrument is a mains-powered,
Class III, price-computing, stand-alone instrument intended for direct sales to the
public. Maximum capacities are between 6 kg and 30 kg.

DESCRIPTION
2.1
Construction (Figure 1)
2.1.1
Mechanical
The Avery Berkel XM 100 weighing instrument (Figure 1) comprises:

Vendor's TFT, WVGA colour touch-screen display/keyboard with up to
20 programmable keys and separate 17 key tactile keypad with fixed
function and numeric keys. The angle of the display can be adjusted in
the horizontal axis to suit operator or environmental requirements.

Customer's TFT, WVGA colour display. The layout and legends are
identical to the vendor's display.

Cassette printer using thermal print head.

Die-cast chassis and plastic housing that contains the load cell and
electronics.

Stainless steel load receptor.
2.1.2
Devices

Initial zero-setting

Semi-automatic zero-setting

Automatic zero-setting

Zero-tracking

Zero indicator

Net indicator

Semi-automatic subtractive tare balancing/weighing

Preset tare

Price computing

Automatic tilt sensor/compensation device, weight indication prevented
for tilt greater than ± 5° in longitudinal and transverse directions.

Price-labelling configuration, in which case printing below Min is not
allowed
2/14
2.1.3
Load cell
The load cell is an Avery T103D, with Emax varying according to the instrument
capacity.
2.2
Operation
2.2.1
Switch-on
At switch-on, the instrument performs a self-test, and attempts to set zero provided
that it is within a range of 20% of its capacity.
2.2.2
Zero-tracking
Zero-tracking operates provided that the instrument is indicating zero, or a negative
net value equivalent to gross zero, and stable.
2.2.3
Semi-automatic zero setting
The zero button operates provided that the instrument indication is within a range of
4% of its capacity.
2.2.4
Automatic zero setting
Automatic zero setting operates only when the instrument has been stable below
zero for at least 5 seconds.
2.2.5
Over and under-range
If the load is less than gross zero, then the weight indications are replaced by a
series of downward facing arrows and the price-to-pay indications are inhibited.
If the load is more than nine divisions above the maximum capacity, then the weight
indications are replaced by a series of upward facing arrows and the price-to-pay
indications are inhibited.
2.2.6
Tare and Preset Tare
Semi-automatic subtractive tare balancing or tare weighing can be performed,
dependant upon configuration. The maximum tare is equal to maximum capacity,
single or multi-interval versions.
Preset tares may be associated with PLU (Price Look-Up) files, keyboard assigned
or tare values entered manually using the numeric keypad in which case the
instrument must be set up with a subtractive tare weighing device and include a
separate tare display. The maximum preset tare value is equal to maximum capacity
(single interval versions only) or the limit of the first partial weighing range (multiinterval versions).
2.2.7
Tilt compensation
The instrument incorporates an automatic tilt sensor/compensation device that
automatically compensates for out of level conditions up to ± 5° in longitudinal or
transverse directions. If the instrument exceeds this value then the weight indications
3/14
are replaced by a series of diagonal bars and the price-to-pay indications are
inhibited.
2.3
Software
The software version numbers for the application, printer and load cell programs may
be viewed by pressing the menu key, with no product selected, and selecting option
“view versions”. The software version numbers will be shown as:Scale Software Version

LOCATION OF SEALS AND VERIFICATION MARKS
6.1
The data plate is located on the left-hand side of the instrument, when
viewed from the vendor side. It is secured, either by sealing or by being of a form
such that it is destroyed when removed.
6.2
Components that may not be dismantled or adjusted by the user shall
be secured by a suitable mark placed over the securing screw of the load cell cover
(Figure 2). The sealing may be viewed through a transparent cover, which may be
removed for sealing purposes, located in the centre of the top housing on the left
hand side of the instrument, when viewed from the vendor side, after removal of the
load receptor. The securing mark may be either:

a mark of the manufacturer and/or manufacturer's representative, or

an official mark of a verification officer.
Verification marks, and the CE marking, are located on, or adjacent to, the data
plate.
6.3
For instruments in which a remote platform is connected to the (sealed)
instrument by means of a plug and socket arrangement, security of the connection is
considered to have been achieved if tamper-evident labels are provided on both
instrument and platform, having a common serial number or cross reference that
identifies the verified combination.
