Safety Precautions
Safety Information
§ To prevent damage to the equipment,
please read these operating instructions
carefully before using your balance/scale.
! Do not use this equipment in
hazardous areas.
! Make sure the voltage rating printed
on the power supply is identical to your
local line voltage.
! Use only commercially available non-
rechargeable or rechargeable battery:
8+ AA, Mignon (not included).
The rechargeable batteries are not
charged when you use the AC adapter.
Please use the charger to recharge the
batteries outside the balance/scale.
– The balance/scale is energized at all
times unless you disconnect the AC
adapter and, if connected, the battery.
– Protect the AC adapter from contact
with liquid
! Exposure to excessive electromagnetic
interference can cause the readout value
to change. Once the disturbance has
ceased, the instrument can be used
again in accordance with its intended
purpose.
Installation
– It is recommended to connect Sartorius
accessories and options, as these are
optimally designed for use with your
balance.
– Do not open the balance/scale housing
as this may void the manufacturer’s
warranty.

Installation
Choose a location that is not subject to the
following negative influences:
Heat (heater or direct sunlight)
Drafts from open windows and doors
Extreme vibrations during weighing
Excessive moisture
Setting Up the Balance/Scale
§ Place the components on the balance/scale in the
following order:
– Weighing pan
– Round glass draft shield on model ELT103, GD502
3
! Use only original Sartorius AC adapters:
– for Asia:
– for the U.S.:
400081.1
400314.1
Connecting the Balance/Scale to AC Power
§ Insert plug into the jack (located on back of the
balance/scale)
§ Plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet
! LISTED power supply 11 V–21 V compliant with
NEC Class 2 output.
Below-Balance/Scale Weighing
A port for a below-balance/scale weighing hanger
is located on the bottom of the balance/scale.
§ Open the cover plate on the bottom of the
balance/scale.
§ Attach the sample (e.g., using a suspension wire)
to the hanger.
$ Install a shield for protection against drafts if
necessary.
4
Using a Non-Rechargeable/Rechargeable Battery
(not for model ELT103, GD502)
$ A non-rechargeable or rechargeable battery is not
included with the equipment supplied.
! Use only a commercially available non-rechargeable
(8+ AA/Mignon) or rechargeable battery.
! When using a rechargeable battery, be sure to
recharge it outside the balance/scale using a separate charger.
● Lay the balance/scale on its side
● Lift the compartment cover
● Insert the non-rechargeable (8+ AA/Mignon)
or rechargeable batteries into the compartment.
$ Make sure to connect the positive and negative poles
correctly.
● Close the battery compartment: press down on
the cover until it clicks into place.
! All used batteries are classified as waste that requires
special handling (not “household” waste). Dispose
of rechargeable batteries in accordance with the
applicable special waste disposal regulations.

Leveling the Balance/Scale
§ Always level the balance/scale again any time after it
has been moved to a different location.
Example: moving bubble from R to L
§ Turn the feet as shown in the diagram until the
air bubble is centered within the circle of the level
indicator.
> In most cases this will require several adjustment
steps.
Removing Weights for Calibration/Span
Adjustment
(only for models ELT103, ELT602, ELT402, ELT202,
ELT1001, ELT601, GD502)
§ Grasp the tab to turn and pull out the weight
compartment.
$ Follow instructions on page 14 for calibration/span
adjustment.

Calibration/Span Adjustment
Calibration is recommended after initial installation and each time the balance/scale
is moved.
Features
Calibration/adjustment can be
performed only when:
– there is no load on the balance/scale,
– the balance/scale is zeroed, and
– the internal signal is stable.
If these conditions are not met, an error
message is displayed.
The weight required for calibration/
span adjustment is displayed.
Standard calibration weights for selected
models: to remove, see instructions on
page 6.
Press v to select a different weight
value.
To cancel the procedure: press and hold
the Enter
key (> 2 sec.).
