2. PRECAUTIONS
2.1. Maintenance
A. Please, read carefully this user manual before and use the device
according to its intended use.
B. Devices that are to be withdrawn from usage should be sent back to
the producer or in case of own utilization do it according to the law.
2.2. Accumulator / battery pack
The device connected to mains inteligently monitors the battery state and
charges it if possible. After sudden lack of power supply from the mains
the device automatically switches to accumulator without breaking
operation.
• Scales aquipped with indicator PUE C/31 (plastic casing) are devices
designed to be supplied from NiMH batteries (nickel-metal-hydrogen)
with rated voltage of 1.2V, size R6 and capacities from 1800 to
2800mAh charged while connected to mains without stopping
operation.
• Scales equipped with PUE C/31H and PUE C/31H/Z weighing
indicators (stainless steal housing) are devices designed to be
supplied from SLA accumulators (Sealed lead acid type) 6V o
and capacity 3 to 4Ah charged while connected to mains without
stopping operation.
In case of an elongated storage period in low
temperatures, it is not allowed the full discharge
of the accompanied batteries.
The equipment including accumulators does not belong
to your regular household waste. The European legislation
requires that electric and electronic equipment be collected
and disposed separately from other communal waste with
the aim of being recycled.
-6-
Notice:
Some symbols on accumulators identify harmful elements/compounds:
Pb = lead,
Cd = cadmium,
Hg = mercury.
2.2.1. Power supply of weighing indicators in plastic casings
Indicators in plastic casing are intended to be supplied from a power
adapter or from NiMH rechargeable battery pack (standard equipment).
New rechargeable batteries should be formatted according to the
description in the chapter 14.4.4. of this manual.
Alternatively, you can use to power the device R6 size standard nonrechargible batteries. If you want to use normal batteries instead of
rechargeable ones, proceed as follows:
•
•
Before installing non-rechargeable batteries turn on the device
and set <5.5.CHr6> to <no>, to switch off charging.
Then install the batteries.
Installing batteries without changing <5.5.CHr6> to <no>
may cause damage of batteries and the indicator.
2.2.2. Replacement of worn batteries
Users have the ability to replace worn out batteries to new ones in
weighing indicators PUE C/31 (plastic casing).
Procedure:
• Open the lid of the chamber for
batteries placed in the bottom of
the indicator casing:

11. WEIGHING
Put a load you want to weigh on the weighing pan. When the
pictogram appears it means that the result is stable and ready to read.
In order to assure long-term operation and appropriate measurements of
weighted loads following precautions should be taken into consideration:
• Loads should be placed on the pan delicately and carefully
in order to avoid mechanical shocks:
• Loads should be placed centrally on the pan (errors caused
by eccentric weighing are outlined by standard PN-EN 45501
ch. 3.5 and 3.6.2):
• Do not load the pan with concentrated force:
• Avoid side loads, particularly side shocks should be avoided:

12.3. Autozero function
The autozero function has been implemented in order to assure precise
indications. This function controls and corrects „0” indication. While the
function is active it compares the results continuously with constant
frequency. If two sequentional results differ less than the declared
value of autozero range, so the scale will be automatically zeroed
and
will be displayed.
and the pictograms
When AUTOZERO is disabled zero is not corrected automatically.
However, in particular cases, this function can disrupt the measurement
process e.g. slow pouring of liquid or powder on the weighing pan. In
this case, it is advisable to disable the autozero function.
