Introduction
The Rice Lake Neonatal Scale provides precise weighing of babies and neonates. Highly sophisticated
microprocessor technology allows accurate, reliable, and repeatable weighments every time. Movement
compensation technology eliminates errors caused by spontaneous movement of the baby and the weight display
can be displayed in pounds/ounces or in kilograms.
This manual can be viewed and downloaded from the Rice Lake Weighing Systems web site at
www.ricelake.com/health. Rice Lake Weighing Systems is an ISO 9001 registered company
Figure 1-1. Rice Lake Neonatal Scale
With the Rice Lake Neonatal Scale, there are certain precautions that should be taken to prevent injury to the
baby and damage to your scale. Please follow these instructions carefully;
• Do not transport the scale while the infant is on the weighing tray.
• Do not drop the scale or subject it to violent shocks.
• For accurate weighing, the scale must be placed on a flat, stable surface.
• For accurate weighing, verify proper operation according to the procedure described in this manual
before each use.
• Do not use around flammable liquids.
• Operation at other voltages and frequencies than specified could damage your equipment.

Assembly Instructions
The Rice Lake Neonatal Scale comes with three pieces. Those pieces include:
• Weighing tray
• Base assembly
• Power supply
Remove each part to be assembled from its carton and unwrap the packing material carefully to prevent
scratching the unit’s parts.
Figure 2-1. Neonatal Assembled Parts
1. Place the base assembly on a sturdy, flat surface.
2. Attach the weighing tray to the base assembly.
3. Plug in the power supply.
Power Supply
The Rice Lake Neonatal Scale has a 120VAC or 230VAC adaptor to use when power is not readily available. The
AC power adaptor plugs into the back of the indicator as shown in Figure 2-2.
Figure 2-2. AC Power Connection Site

Neonatal Technical and Operating Instructions
The Rice Lake Neonatal Scale is also capable of running on its internal sealed lead-acid rechargeable battery if
no additional power source is available. The battery life is approximately 75 hours. If the LO Bat indicator is
showing on the display, recharge battery or connect the scale to an AC power source as soon as possible for
accurate weighing.
Battery Charging
When the scale is on, the BAT display indicates that the scale battery requires recharging. The scale should be
connected to an AC power source.
Figure 2-3. Low Battery Display Location
When the AC adaptor is connected to a power source, the rechargeable battery goes into recharge mode.
NOTE: To maintain battery longevity we recommend you charge it on a regular basis rather than waiting until it is fully
discharged.

Neonatal Technical and Operating Instructions
Use the following steps to set up your Rice Lake Neonatal Scale when you initially power it up.
1. To operate the unit using the AC adaptor, plug the AC adaptor cable into the back of the scale as shown
in Figure 2-2 2, and the AC adaptor plugs into a power source.
2. Press the ON-OFF key to turn on the scale.
3. When the self test function is complete, the digital display should read: 0-00.00 if set up in Lb/Oz or 0.000
if set up to read in Kg. The Charge indicator should also be illuminated on the display up until the battery
is fully charged.
4. Place a weight (not exceeding 30 lbs) on the scale. The digital display should blink
until the
weight calculation is complete.
5. Press the Kg-Lb key to select the weight mode, either in pounds/ounces or kilograms.
6. Pressing the REWEIGH key forces the scale to recompute the weight of the item on the scale.
7. Remove the weight from the scale. The digital display will continue to show the weight of the item that
was on the scale.
8. Press the ZERO key and the display will return back to zero.
9. Disconnect the scale from the AC power source. The scale will automatically switch over to battery
power and if a rechargeable battery is in use, the Charge indicator will turn off.
NOTES:
•
•
•
If the setup procedure failed, refer to the troubleshooting section of this manual. If the problem is not
resolved, refer to a qualified service provider.
The rechargeable batteries automatically go into recharge mode when the AC adaptor is connected to the
power source. When the cable is inserted into the power source, the LED light up red which is located to
the left hand side of the cable on the back of the indicator. When the battery is completely recharged, the
LED changes from red to green.
After the procedure, if you are using a rechargeable battery, connect the scale to an AC power source for
at least eight hours to recharge the battery.

Scale Operation
The Rice Lake Neonatal Scale can accurately weigh neonates and babies up to 30 lbs. Use the following steps to
weigh a baby.
1. Press the ON-OFF key to turn the scale on.
2. Wait until the 0-00.0 (if set up in Lb/Oz) appears on the digital display or 0.000 if set up in Kg.
3. Place a pad on the weighing tray. Make sure that the edges of the pad are on the tray and are not touching
the surface on which the scale is positioned.
4. Press the ZERO key to cancel the weight of the pad or other accessory that is on the weighing tray.
5. Place the infant on the scale. The display will blink
until the weight of the infant is determined.
6. Press the REWEIGH key to weigh the infant again (used to achieve a more accurate result).
7. Remove the infant from the scale. The digital display should continue to read the infant’s weight until
REWEIGH or the ZERO key is pressed.
NOTE: If the scale is not used for five minutes, it switches off to save battery life and power. To restart the scale, press
the ON-OFF key.
