3.3 INTERNAL RECHARGEABLE BATTERY The balance can be operated from the internal rechargeable battery or using an AC adapter. The battery discharge time, is approximately 24 hours depending on the usage of the backlight. The display will show an indication when the battery needs to be charged. To charge the battery, plug in the AC adapter at the back of the balance and attach it to the main power supply. The charging indicator at the left top corner of the LCD will be on. 6 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 3.4 LOCATING AND PROTECTING YOUR BALANCE In order to keep your balance functioning at its best we suggest that you do the following: Avoid extremes of temperature. Do not place in direct sunlight or near air conditioning vents. Make sure the balance is located on a strong table and free from vibration. Avoid unstable power sources. Do not use near large users of electricity such as welding equipment or large motors. Do not let the balance battery go flat – if you are not using it for a long time you should charge the battery up periodically to make sure the battery does not lose its charge. Keep free from vibration. Do not place near heavy or vibrating machinery. Avoid high humidity that might cause condensation. Keep away from direct contact with water. Do not spray or immerse the balance in water. Do not place near open windows, air‐conditioning vents or fans that may cause a draft and unstable readings. Keep the balance clean. Do not stack material on the balance / balance pan when it is not in use. The Highland has a stacking feature for stacking more than one unit on top of each other which does not apply weight to the pan. For more details on this see the section on storing. 7 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 3.5 STORING WHEN NOT IN USE If you have any of the HighlandTM series or Core BalanceTM lines you can store them easily on top of each other. To save space and protect them from damage. Without Shield With Shield Note: Only models equipped with a ø 4.7” / 120mm pan, can be stacked for storage. Core models with the larger ø 5.7” / 145mm may be stacked at the top of the pile but other balances should NOT be stacked on top of them due to the larger pan size. 8 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 4.0 BASIC OPERATION 4.1 TURNING ON THE BALANCE Plug in the unit using the AC adapter or use the internal rechargeable battery. It is recommended that you charge the battery for at least 8 hours before first use. 1) To turn on press the [on/off] key once and release. The balance will show the software revision and the capacity then self‐test before showing zero on the display and the stable sign. 2) The balance is ready to be used. 3) To turn the balance off after use press the [on/off] key again. There is an auto power‐off function that will automatically turn the unit off if not used for a period of time, this can be set in the parameters section. If an error is shown while turning on the balance check the internal calibration weight has not been left in the calibrate position. Move the lever all the way to the left. Turn off the balance and turn it back on again. 4.2 ZEROING / TARE You can press the [Tare] key to set a new zero point and show the zero reading if the weight reading is less than 4% of the total of the maximum capacity of the balance. This may be necessary if the weight reading is not reading zero with nothing on the pan. The zero indicator will show up in the upper left corner of the LCD. If you are using a container to weigh then you can place this on the platform and press the [Tare] key. Providing the container weight is more than 4% of the maximum capacity of the balance, the digits will show zero and NET will light up on the display. You can then weigh your sample in the container. Taring weight subtracts from the total balance capacity. Note: When the container is removed a negative value will be shown equivalent to the total value of the amount tared. The balance will not tare a value for a container unless the stability light indicates that the weight is stable thus ensuring a correct taring function. 9 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 4.4 WEIGHING To determine the weight of a sample, first tare an empty container (if used), then place the sample in the container. The display will show the weight of the sample and the unit of weight currently in use. The stable indicator will light when the reading is stable. 4.5 WEIGHING UNITS To change the weighing units, press [Mode] to cycle through the options of units that are enabled. See Parameters 6.1 Enabling Weighing Units, to enable or disable the weighing units. 10 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 5.0 FUNCTIONS 5.1 PERCENTAGE WEIGHING The balance will allow a reference weight to be shown as 100%. Then any other weight placed on the balance will be displayed as a percentage of the original sample. 1) Place your weight on the balance. 2) Press the [%] key. The weight will be displayed as 100.00%. 3) Remove the weight and place your next sample on the balance. The new reading will be shown as a percentage of the first value / reference used. 4) Pressing the [%] key again will return the balance to normal weighing. Note: The balance may jump by large numbers unexpectedly if small weights are used to set the 100% level. For example, if only 23.5g is on a balance with 0.5g increments and the balance is set to 100%, the display will show 100.00%. However, a small change of weight will cause the display to jump to 102.13%, as one balance division (0.5g) increase to 24.0g will be equivalent to a 2.13% increase. 5.2 PARTS COUNTING Parts counting lets you count small parts that are of equal weight, quickly and easily. To do this you must first set your sample by telling the balance how many parts you have. 1) Place your container on the balance and press the [Tare] key as described in 4.2 Zeroing / Tare section. This will remove the weight of the container from your count. 2) When the balance is in normal weighing mode with the initial quantity on the balance, press the [Smpl] key to start the parts counting function. 3) The initial number of samples should match the options for parts counting, 10, 20, 50, 100 or 200 pieces. 4) The balance will initially show SP 10 asking for a sample size of 10 parts. Press [Mode] to cycle through the options: 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and back to 10 to select the sample you have placed on the balance. 11 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 5) Press [Smpl] again once you have selected the sample. The display will show you the number. As more parts are added the display will show the total number of parts (PCS – will be shown in the alpha‐numeric display). 6) By pressing the [Mode] key you can view the unit weight (W/P), total weight (g) or the count (PCS). The total and the unit weight are shown in the current weighing units. 7) Press [Smpl] to return to normal weighing. 5.3 ACCUMULATION There are two types of accumulations – automatic and manual. Automatic Accumulation Manual Accumulation When the balance is set for automatic accumulation, see Parameters 6.3 Setting the Printer Parameters / Accumulation, the weight will be added to the memory when the balance becomes stable. When the balance is set to manual accumulation, see Parameters 6.3 Setting the Printer Parameters / Accumulation, the weight displayed will only be stored in memory once the [Print] key is pressed and the weight is stable. 1) Place the weight on the balance. If automatic then the balance will automatically accumulate the weight. If set to manual then you will need to press the [Print] key. 2) The display will show ACC 1 followed by the total value in the memory for 2 seconds before returning to displaying the weight of the item on the balance. 3) The weight will be transmitted to a printer or PC. 4) Remove the weight, allowing the balance to return to zero. 5) Put a second weight on. Again if set to automatic it will accumulate the weight automatically. Alternatively press [Print], the display will show ACC 2 followed by the new total in the memory for 2 seconds before returning to displaying the weight of the item on the balance. 6) Continue until all weights have been added. 12 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 To view the totals in memory press the [Print] key when the balance is at zero. The display will show ACC xx (where “xx” is the total number of readings) and the total weight, before returning to zero. At the same time the total will also be sent via the RS‐232 interface. To clear the memory, press [Smpl] once the total accumulation value is displayed, after the pressing [Print]. 13 | P a g e © Adam Equipment Company 2008 6.0 PARAMETERS The balance has 7 parameters that can be set by the user.
