9
place balance on a stable and flat table or free from vibrations
balance should not be exposed to draughts and sudden air movements
balance should be placed in room of stable temperature and humidity
balance should be placed far from heat sources
temperature of the room should be +15°C ÷ +30°C (for WLT balances)
if static electricity influence balances, indications, its base should be
earthed. Earthing clamp is in the back part of balance base
balances should be levelled according to a level condition indicator to
guarantee the appropriate weighing accuracy
2.2. Time of warming up
To do the measurements correctly level the scale. Take the pan off carefully
(without rapid pulls and hits) and turn the legs in order to level the balance, air
bubble should be place in the centre of level condition indicator.
Fig. 2. Balance levelling
1 - correct levelling
2 - incorrect levelling
2.3. Balance levelling
Before performing measurements wait until balance reaches temperature
stabilization. It is so-called warm-up time. It takes about 15 minutes.
For weighing instruments that have been stored in low temperatures (e.g. during
winter) the warm-up time is about 2 hours.
3. INTENDED USE
The balances are used to do precise measurements in laboratories. It is possible
to do the zero function in all measure range.
The balance weights in following units:

Tarring can be performed repeatedly in the whole balance weighing range. Using
tare function pay attention not to exceed the maximum weighing range. After
removing the load and package display will indicate mass equal to mass of tare
with minus sign.
Notice:
Tare value is not stored in balance memory and is deleted after disconnecting
from mains
6.2. Manual inscribing of tare value
Inscribing the tare value in weighing mode:
♦ Inscribe a tare value in a display format e.g. if a basic unit is „kg” with a
division 0,005kg and you want to enter 1.05kg as a tare value , inscribe it
as: 1.050
♦ After pressing the first digit you can see an editing field in the last line.

7. BALANCE CALIBRATION
To ensure very high accuracy of weighing, periodical entering to memory
correction factor of balance indication referring to standard mass is required; it is
so called balance calibration. In WLT balances it is inaccessible for user. The
procedure of calibration can be performed only by authorized services of the
manufacturer.

10. SETTING THE PARAMETERS
User by means of appropriate setting of parameters from menu group
<P4 Readout> can adjust the balance to existing operating conditions (filter) and
one’s expectations (refreshing, autozero, last digit displaying)
Fig. 19. Submenu Readout – internal settings
10.1. Filter setting
For perfect conditions filter can be set as very fast, however if conditions are bad
(vibrations, draughts) filter should be set as slow or as very slow. Effectiveness of
filter operating is different for weighing range. Filter works slower in time of
“reaching” the final result, however stronger when mass gets to set range of filter
operating (parameter range of filter operating available only in service menu –
user do not have access to it).
10.2. Median filter setting
Task of median filter is to eliminate single big disturbances. By setting digital
value determines speed of filter operating. For zero option filter operating is off.
10.3. Setting of autozero operating
To ensure accurate balance indications software “AUTOZERO” function was
introduced. Task of this function is automatic control and correction of balance
zero indication.
- 25 -
10.4. Autozero setting
If the function is active following results in declared periods of time are compared
e.g. each 1s. If these results differs at less value than declared range AUTOZERA
and
e.g. 1 interval the balance sets to zero automatically and
appears on the display.
If the AUTOZERO function is active each measurement starts at precise zero
every time. In special cases this function disturbs in the measurements e.g. when
the load is put on the pan very slowly (pouring substance). In this case correcting
system of zero indication can correct also indication of real load mass.
AUTOZERA is switched on and off in the parameter P4 03
10.5. Last digit
To ensure appropriate comfort of operating with balance user determines
(depending on needs) if last digit of mass indication is to be displayed and in
which states of balance. One of the below values can be set:
- 0
never
- 1
always
- 2
when stab
For verified balance option 1 – always is set (without possibility of changing)
10.6. Negative
Possibility to change displaying mode – negative effect (dark background, light
signs).
10.7. Automatic tare
This function is useful for quick determining net mass of weighed goods when
tare values are different for each weighings (see chapter 7.3. of this manual).

currently counted quantity is added mass of a single piece is corrected. In this
case APW = 5.2282 to 5.1837. From this moment following pieces are counted in
relation to single mass.
This way mass of singular piece can be determined on base of batch standard.
The are four conditions of APC (Automatic Correction of Preciseness)
in the balance software
1. quantity of pieces (after adding) must be higher than it was previously
2. quantity of pieces (after adding) must be less than twice quantity which
was on the display before adding
3. actual quantity must be in tolerance ± 0,3 of the total value,
4. the result must be stable.
If user decides that batch quantity is enough singular piece mass must be
introduced into the balance memory after pressing the key F.

ƒ
ƒ
The communication protocol has been designed for exchanging information
between RADWAG scales and external devices via RS-232C.
The communication protocol has been designed in the form of request
response messages.
Scales always respond after receiving a command or automatically after
completing a command.
Using the set of commands you can fetch some information from scales or
influence the operation of the device. E.g. It is possible to:
• Identify the scale
• Collect weighing results
• Keyboard control
• Display control
• Changes of variables
• Other
External software have to assure not sending the next command without receiving
the answer for the previous one.
20.2. Transmission parameters

•
Scales are equipped in RS 232 (bidirectional) and RS485 (one direction
from the scale to an external device).
Possibile interface settings:
Parameter

20.3. Types of transmission
Scales with MCB X.XX program use two different ways of transmission:
• Continuous transmission or automatic printout (RS 232 and RS 485)
• of request-response messages (request messages via RS 232 and
response messages via RS 232 or RS 485)
20.4. Transmission characteristics
20.4.1. Types of printouts
There are 3 types of automatic printouts in the scale provided it is not a retail
scale and the DRH parameter in factory parameters is not enabled.
Notice:
If the parameter DRH is set to 1 this parameter is locked for edition, but it is
possible to start continuous transmission by using a RS232 command.

Description
Request-response
Continuous transmission
Continuous transmission with the time pause between the
subsequent printouts. The pause is set in the next
parameter in the menu.
Printouts are automatically generated after each stable
measurement over min. mass (next parameter).
The next printout can be generated when the result
achieves the value below the Min. mass and again over it.
- 58 -
20.4.2. Continuous transmission
Results are transmitted in basic units. Transmission can be disabled/enabled
using RS232 command:
C1 CR LF – Switch on continuous transmission in basic unit
C0 CR LF – Switch off continuous transmission in basic unit
or using the parameter: settings/ RS-232/Aut. printout/continuous
The frame length is constant (21 characters).
Frame format:
[SI] [space] [stability] [space] [sign] [mass] [space] [unit] [CR LF]
Stability character – [space] if stable
[?] if not stable
[^] if an indication over the range
[v] if an indication below the range
sign – [space] for positive values or [-] for negative values
mass – 9 characters justified to the right
unit – 3 characters justified to the left
20.4.3. Continuous transmission „with pauses”
Continuous transmission „with pauses” allows users to determine the time
interval between the subsequent frames in the parameter interval.
His type of printouts can be enabled only in parameters: Settings/RS-232/ Aut.
printouts/with interv.
The frame format is the same as in basic simple transmission.
The interval is set in: Setting/RS-232/Interval
- 59 -
20.4.4. Stable result transmission
The scale automatically generates after each stable result separated by a stable
result below the Min. mass that can be set in parameters.
The intended use of this printout is for slip printers so it doesn’t have a starting
characters and the length can vary from 18 to 20 characters.
Standard length is 18 characters, but if the parameter digit marking has been
enabled, the length increases to 20 characters, because additional brackets are
printed e.g.:
383 kg
38[3] kg
3[83] kg
It can be set in :
Settings/Factory/digit marking
Frame format:
[space] [sign] [mass] [space] [unit] [CR LF]
sign – [space] for positive values or [-] for negative values
mass – 9 characters justified to the right
unit – 3 characters justified to the left
This type of printouts can be enabled in parameters:
Settings/RS-232/Aut. print/when stab.
Setting the Min. mass is possible in:
Settings/RS-232/Min. mass
Notice:
The result is printed in current unit.

20.5. Command and response syntax
20.5.1. Command syntax
ƒ
ƒ
All commands are terminated with CR,LF (ASCII 13 dec,10 dec)
Commands can include a parameter or not
Overall format:
ID CR LF
– example of a command without a parameter
ID _ PARAMETER CR LF
– example of a command with a parameter
where:
• ID – command 1-4 characters
• _ - space (ASCII 32 decimal)
•
•
PARAMETER – string of ASCII characters. Texts have to be inscribed
within a quotation marks.
Spaces are not elements of the syntax – placed only for better
readability.
- 61 -
20.5.2. Response syntax
Response can include parameters or not and additionally can signalise errors.
After receiving an appropriate command scales response immediately with:
ƒ Immediate response
ƒ Acknowledge of receiving a command
ƒ Accepting of a received command
ƒ Not accepting of a received command
Overall format:
ID _ STATUS CR LF
- example of a command without a parameter
ID _ STATUS _ PARAMETER CR LF - example of a command with a
parameter
ES CR LF - error detected or not listed command
where:
• ID – command 1-4 characters
• _ - space (ASCII 32 dec)
• STATUS – one character that outlines the response status or a status of
the scale.
Different possibilities:
A – in case of commands that cannot be completed immediately command accepted
I – correct command but cannot be executed at that moment
D – in case of commands that cannot be completed immediately command completed
E – error of execution of a command e.g. incorrect parameter value.
Additionally when the parameter is a weighings result, STATUS can
be:
_ - (space ASCII 32 dec) stable result
? – non-stable result
^ - error – result over the range
v – error – result below the range

21. UNDER-FLOOR WEIGHING
For scales with 165 x 165mm platforms can weigh underslinged loads (hanged
under the balance floor). In case of using this function:
− remove the hole plug made of plastic (placed in the balance floor),
− a suspension can be seen in the hole. It is standard equipment,
− Mount an appropriate hook for hanging loads (hook is non-standard
equipment).
1. The suspense cannot be rotated, revolved or tampered in any way,
because of direct connection with the weighing mechanism of the balance.
2. All the additional elements like pan, string etc. should be tarred (TARE).
3. Balances with 300 x 300mm or 410 x 410mm platforms do not have the
under-floor weighing mechanism.
