1. INTENDED USE
Mass comparators are devices designed for determining the differences
between masses of calibration weight (B) and reference weight (A).
Comparators are most often used in measuring laboratories for calibration
of weights and masses. Radwag offers comparators designed for calibration
of weights and masses class M1 according to OIML R111.
2. PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES
A. Please, read carefully this user manual before and use the device
according to its intended use;
B. Weighed loads should be placed in possibly central part of scale pan;
C. Do not clean the device with agents causing corrosion;
D. Weighing pan should be loaded with goods having gross mass lower
than maximal capacity of the scale;
E. Do not leave loads on the pan for longer period of time ;
F. In case of failure, immediately disconnect scale power supply;
G. Devices that are to be withdrawn from usage should be utilized
according to the law.
3. WARRANTY CONDITIONS
A. RADWAG is obliged to repair or change those elements that appears
to be faulty because of production and construction reason,
B. Defining defects of unclear origin and outlining methods of elimination
can be settled only in participation of a user and the manufacturer
representatives,
C. RADWAG does not take any responsibility connected with destructions
or losses derives from non-authorized or inappropriate (not adequate
to manuals) production or service procedures,
D. Warranty does not cover:
• Mechanical failures caused by inappropriate maintenance of
the device or failures of thermal or chemical origin or caused
by atmospheric discharge, overvoltage in mains or other
random event,
7
• Inappropriate cleaning.
E. Forfeiture of warranty appears after:
• Access by an unauthorized service,
• Intrusion into mechanical or electronic construction
of unauthorized people,
• Installing another operating system,
• Removing or destroying protection stickers.
F. The detailed warranty conditions one can find in warranty certificate.
G. Contact with the central authorized service:
+48 48 384 88 00 ext. 106 or 107.
4. UNPACKING AND MOUNTING
Before using the scale remove the transport protections (if installed):
Place the scale on the spot of use on the flat, stable ground far away from
sources of heat. The platform should be levelled out by putting pads under
feet and the use of an external level device.
Every foot can be screwed in or out. This way only a smal range of level
regulation is achievable. Basic levelling should be performed by putting
steel pads under legs and observing the level on external level device.

4.1. Comparator WPY/KB – preparation for work
Comparators of WPY/KB series, because of its construction (sensitive strain
gauges), require appropriate conditions to work properly, including stable
temperature. Temperature drifts in rooms with comparators should not
exceed 1°C per hour.
Proceeding in case of preparing the comparator to work:
1. After unpacking and taking off transport protections put the scale
in the destination place and level the komparator platform.
2. The room temperature must be stable – maximum allowable
temperature change is 1°C / h – and protected from accidental draughts
air flows e.g. from air conditioning directed on the comparator pan.
3. Then switch on the device and leave unloaded and on for 4 hours. This
is warming time during which electronical and mechanical parts reach
stable temperature conditions.
4. After 4 hours in stable ambient conditions the comparator can be
prepared for adjustment.
5. First load the comparator pan to the maximum capacity 1000kg and
keep this state at least 2.5 minuty (150 seconds).
6. Secondly unload the pan and wait at least 2 minuts (120 seconds),
to allow the scale to return to the minimum stable value close to „zero”.
7. The operation of initial loading should be repeated 5 times, every time
in reference to time intervals given above.
8. After the 5-time initial loading the comparator can undergo the
adjustement procedure: 2 minutes after unloading the pan and start
the adjustment procedure from factory menu – first start mass is
determined then load the calibration weight following hints that appear
on the display. Confirm the stable result after 2 minutes. This way the
adjustement procedure will be completed.
9. The comparator is ready for work.
Notice:
If working conditions are changed (temperature change greater than 1°C,
humidity change, sudden long lasting air flow causing a change of ambient
conditions) the adjucement procedure described above needs to be repeated.

13.1. Conditions of operational use
In order to assure a long term operating period with appropriate
measurements following principles should be adhered to:
• Avoid applying mechanical shocks to the weight pan:
• Loads should be placed in the centre of the pan (eccentric errors
are outlined in PN-EN 45501 chapter 3.5 and 3.6.2):
• Do not apply concentrated forces (all load in one point):
30
• Avoid side loads, particularly side strokes:

Accessible bargraphs:
• Quick weighing,
• None (Bargraph is not displayed),
• Signalling checkweighing ranges.
51
17.4.1. Bargraf “Quick weighing”
• The bargraph consists of 8 red fields and three green fields.
• The green fields signal weighings between MIN and MAX
threshold, where:
MIN = the minimum threshold of acceptable weighing - LO
MAX = the maximum threshold of acceptable weighing - HI
• If a measurement is over the MIN (to the value of 1/3 of MIN-MAX) the
green field with a triangle on the left is visible. If the measurement is
between 1/3 and 2/3 of MIN-MAX the rectangular green field is visible.
If the measurement is between 2/3 of MIN-MAX and MAX a green field
with a triangle on the right is visible.
• If the mass value is below the MIN threshold red fields with red arrows
on the left are visible. The lower mass value the more red arrows are
visible.
• If the mass value is over the MAX threshold red fields with red arrows
on the right are visible. The higher mass value the more red arrows
are visible.
Thresholds MIN and MAX are on the borders between red and green fields.
17.4.2. Bargraph “Signalling checkweighing ranges”
• This type of bargraph comprises one green and 2 red fields.
• The left red field – signals that the load on the pan is lower than
the minimum weighing threshold (Min threshold);
52
• The central green field – signals that the load on the pan is within the
set required interval for the weighed product (OK value between Min
and Max thresholds);
• The right red field – signals that the load on the pan is greater than
the maximum weighing threshold (Max threshold).

36. APPENDIX C – Label pattern
A label pattern can be created in 2 ways:
• From the terminal level using variables,
• Using PC software EDYTOR ETYKIET R01. A created project needs
to be saved as an „lb” file then copied on a pendrive that can be
connected to the terminal. Finally transfer the file to the database
in the scale.
While a label is in the database of labels it can be ascribed to products
or/and contractors in order to work in labelling mode.
36.1. Designing a label from the terminal level

This is advisable to record designs of labels in files with *.lab extension
as well (software menu: File / Save as…) to use/edit the designs of
labels in the future.
36.3. Saving label patterns in the scale
Procedure:
• A label pattern *.lb created in EDYTOR ETYKIET R01 needs

39. APPENDIX F - Communication with barcode scanners
1. For communication with barcode scanners RADWAG scales use RS232
interfaces and simplex transmission (one direction) without handshaking.
Only two wires are required for assuring such a transmission. Used
scanners should be equipped in such interface with disabled both
hardware and software handshaking.
2. Both scales and scanners have the possibility of setting of transmission
parameters. Both devices are required to have the same parameters set
: baud rate, number of data bits, parity control, stop bits. e.g. 9600,8,N,1
– baud rate 9600 bit/s, data 8-bits, no parity control, 1 stop bit.
3. Barcode scanners can send additional information apart from the
expected barcode e.g. symbology (type of barcode). It is advisable
to disable such information because RADWAG devices and
software do not use it.
4. Some RADWAG systems can omit unnecessary information by
using parameters that mark the beginning and the length of the
code required to analyse.
5. A special protocol is required in order the code be received by
RADWAG equipment. It is required to program an appropriate
prefix and suffix. Prefix – one byte 01 hexadecimally, suffix one
byte 0D hexadecimally.
6. Most barcode scanners allow to enable/disable different
symbologies (barcode types).
7. Programming of scanners is usually performed by reading
special barcodes or by using an external software tool.
8. Scanners marketed together with RADWAG systems are
always configured according to the rules above.

suffix in hexadecimal format
