Basic instructions
2.1
Proper use
The balance you purchased is intended to determine the
weighing value of material to be weighed. It is intended to be
used as a “non-automatic“ balance, i.e. the material to be
weighed is manually and carefully suspended. As soon as a
stable weighing value is reached the weighing value can be
read.
2.2
Improper Use
Do not use balance for dynamic weighings. In the event that
small quantities are removed or added to the material to be
weighed, incorrect weighing results can be displayed due to
the “stability compensation“ in the balance. (Example: Slowly
draining fluids from a container suspended on the balance.)
No permanent load must remain on the balance. This may
damage the measuring system.
Impacts and overloading exceeding the stated maximum load
(max) of the balance, minus a possibly existing tare load,
must be strictly avoided. Balance may be damaged by this
(danger of breaking).
Attention:
Ö
Make sure that never persons or objects are under the
load which could be injuried or damaged!
Ö
The balance is not suitable for weighing persons!
The balance does not correspond to the law of medical
products (MPG).
Never operate balance in explosive environment. The serial
version is not explosion protected.
The structure of the balance may not be modified. This may
lead to incorrect weighing results, safety-related faults and
destruction of the balance.
The balance may only be used according to the described
conditions.
Other areas of use must be released by KERN in writing.
2.3
Warranty
Warranty claims shall be voided in case
•
Our conditions in the operation manual are ignored
•
The appliance is used outside the described uses
•
The appliance is modified or opened
Mechanical damage and damage caused by media,
liquids
•
Natural wear and tear
•
The appliance is improperly set up or incorrectly
electrically connected
•
The measuring system is overloaded
2.4
Monitoring of Test Resources
In the framework of quality assurance the measuring-related
properties of the balance and, if applicable, the testing weight,
must be checked regularly. The responsible user must define
a suitable interval as well as type and scope of this test.
Information is available on KERN’s home page (www.kernsohn.com) with regard to the monitoring of balance test
substances and the test weights required for this. In KERN’s
accredited DKD calibration laboratory test weights and
balances may be calibrated (return to the national standard)
fast and at moderate cost.

Basic Safety Precautions
Do not use the suspending balance for conveying loads
Never exceed the maximum permitted load! Danger of
breaking !! ).
Always ensure that there are no persons, animals or
objects that might be damaged underneath the load.
Avoid any kind of shock, torsion and oscillating (e.g.
caused by inclined suspending)

3.1
Pay attention to the instructions in the Operation
Manual
Carefully read this operation manual before commissioning,
even if you are already familiar with KERN balances.
3.2

Transport and storage
4.1
Testing upon acceptance
When receiving the appliance, please check packaging
immediately, and the appliance itself when unpacking for
possible visible damage.
4.2
Packaging
Keep all parts of the original packaging in case you need to
return the appliance.
Only use original packaging for returning.

Unpacking, Setup and Commissioning
5.1
Installation Site, Location of Use
The balances are designed in a way that reliable weighing
results are achieved in common conditions of use.
You will work accurately and fast, if you select the right
location for your balance.
Therefore, observe the following for the installation site:
•
Avoid extreme heat as well as temperature fluctuation
caused by using next to a radiator or in the direct
sunlight;
•
Protect the balance against direct draughts due to open
windows and doors;
•
Avoid jarring during weighing;
•
Protect the balance against high humidity, vapours and
dust;
•
Do not expose the device to extreme dampness for
longer periods of time. Non-permitted condensation
(condensation of air humidity on the appliance) may
occur if a cold appliance is taken to a considerably
warmer environment. In this case, acclimatize the
appliance for ca. 2 hours at room temperature.
•
Avoid static charging of the material to be weighed,
weighing container and windshield.
Major display deviations (incorrect weighing results) may be
experienced should electromagnetic fields (e.g. due to mobile
phones or radio equipment), static electricity accumulations or
instable power supply occur. Change location or remove
source of interference.
5.2
Unpacking
Take the balance carefully out of the package and
remove the plastic cover.

Battery operation
Remove battery cover, see img. Insert 2 AA batteries.
Reinsert the battery cover, please not markings (
).
If the batteries are empty, in the balance display appears
“LO”. Press ON/OFF-key and replace the batteries
immediately. In order to save the battery, the balance
switches automatically off after 4 minutes without weighing.
Deactivate this Auto-OFF function in the menu as follows:
5.5
The menu
Ö When the balance is switched off, press the HOLD-key
and keep it pressed
Ö
Do not release the HOLD-key. Press also the
ON/OFF/TARE-key and keep it pressed
Ö
Keep the ON/OFF/TARE-key pressed, however release
the HOLD-key
Ö
Press HOLD-key anew
Ö
Keep both keys pressed until in the display “tr” appears
Ö
Release both keys. The balance is situated in the menu.
Ö
Using the ON/OFF/TARE button you can select between
the following functions:
ƒ
tr (zero tracking) : ON/OFF
ƒ
AF (Auto off): ON/OFF
ƒ
rST (Reset to factory setting): YES/NO
Ö
Confirm with HOLD-key
Ö
In the display appears the current setting „ON“ or „OFF“
resp. „YES“ or „NO“.With help of the ON/OFF/TAREkey you can select between „ON“ or „OFF“ resp. „YES“
or „NO“. Confirm your selection with the HOLD-key. After
a short period the balance returns automatically to
weighing mode.

Adjustment
As the acceleration value due to gravity is not the same at
every location on earth, each balance must be coordinated in compliance with the underlying physical weighing principle to the existing acceleration due to gravity at its place of
location (only if the balance has not already been adjusted to
the location in the factory). This adjustment process must be
carried out during the initial start-up, after change in location
and variation of surrounding temperature. To receive accurate
measuring values it is also recommended to adjust the
balance periodically in weighing operation.
6.1
Adjustment
With an adjustment weight, the weighing accuracy can be
checked and re-adjusted at any time.
Procedure when adjusting:
Observe stable environmental conditions. A short warming up
time of ca. 1 minute is recommended for stabilization. Switch
on balance Press the Unit-key and keep it pressed (approx.
15 sec), in the display first appears shortly „CAL “, after that
there appears the exact size of the adjustment weight.
Suspend the adjustment weight, a short time later appears „
F“, the balance returns automatically to the weighing mode.
In case of an adjustment error or incorrect adjusting weight
the display will show "E"; repeat adjustment process.

Operation
7.1
Weighing
• The
balance is switched on by pressing the
„ON/OFF/TARE“ key.
• The balance displays „0.0“.
• Suspend the material to be weighed
• The weighing value appears in the display:
• If the material to be weighed is heavier than the weighing
range, the display will show "E" (=Overload).
• The balance is switched off by pressing the „ON/OFF“ key a
longer time.
7.2
Weighing units switch-over
Using the Unit-key you can switch over the display between
N, lb and kg. The X marks the active setting.
7.3
Taring
• Switch on the balance using the ON/OFF/TARE-key and
wait for the „0“ display. Suspend the tare load and press
the ON/OFF/TARE -key.
• The balance display jumps to „0.0“. The weight of the tare
load is internally stored. The material to be weighed can
now be filled in the tare vessel and the weighing value can
be read.
