Safety instructions
CAUTION!
Do not use scale in hazardous areas!
Our product range includes special devices for hazardous areas.
CAUTION!
Use only scales with Protection Class IP65, if:
• the scale is used in wet areas
• wet cleaning is necessary
• the scale is used in a dusty environment
Even with Protection Class IP65, the scale must not be used in environments with corrosion risk.
▲ Never flood the scale or immerse it in liquid.
DANGER!
Electric shock hazard!
▲ Always pull out the mains plug before any work on the device.
DANGER!
Electric shock hazard if the mains cable is damaged!
▲ Check the mains cable for damage regularly and replace it immediately if it is damaged.
▲ On the rear side of the device, maintain a clearance of at least 3 cm in order to
prevent the mains cable bending too much.
CAUTION!
On no account open the device!
The warranty is void if this stipulation is ignored. The device may only be opened by
authorized persons.

Introduction
CAUTION!
Handle the compact scale with care.
The scale is a precision instrument.
▲ When the weighing pan has been removed, never clean the area under the load
plate holder with a solid object!
▲ Do not put excessive loads on the scale.
▲ Avoid banging the weighing pan.
Disposal
➜ Observe the valid environmental regulations when disposing of the scale.
If the device has a rechargeable battery:
The battery contains heavy metals and therefore must not be disposed of with normal
waste.
➜ Observe the local regulations for disposing of environmentally hazardous materials.
Note
Use with foodstuffs
Parts coming into contact with foodstuffs have smooth surfaces and are easy to clean.
The materials used do not splinter and are free of harmful substances.
With foodstuffs, it is recommended to use the supplied protective cover.
➜ Clean the protective cover regularly and carefully.
➜ Replace damaged or very dirty protective cover immediately.
1.2
Description
The compact scales are available in a small and large size in various capacities and
resolutions.
The power supply is carried out via a built-in power supply device, an internal
rechargeable battery with an external mains adapter or an external battery.
One of the following options can also be ordered:
• Additional interface RS232
• Ethernet interface

1.3.1
Putting into operation
Selecting or changing the location
The correct location is crucial to the accuracy of the weighing results!
➜ Select a stable, vibration-free and if possible a horizontal location.
The ground must be able to safely bear the weight of the fully loaded scale.
Observe the following environmental conditions:
• No direct sunlight
• No strong drafts
• No excessive temperature fluctuations
Aligning the scale
Only scales that have been aligned precisely horizontally provide accurate weighing
results. The certified scales have a spirit level to simplify alignment.
➜ Turn the adjustable feet of the scale until the spirit level’s air bubble is inside the
inner circle.
Major geographical
location changes
The manufacturer adjusts each scale to the local gravity conditions (GEO value). In
the event of major geographical location changes, this setting must be adjusted by a
service technician. Certified scales must also be recertified observing the national certification regulations. These steps are not necessary for scales with an internal calibration weight.

Introduction
1.3.2
Connecting the power supply
CAUTION!
Before connecting the scale to the mains, check whether the voltage value printed on
the rating plate corresponds with the local mains voltage.
▲ Never connect the device if the voltage value printed on the rating plate is different
to the local mains voltage.
➜ Plug the mains plug into the socket.
After connection, the device performs a self-test. When the zero display appears,
the device is ready to weigh.
➜ Calibrate the device in order to obtain the greatest possible precision, see
Section 3.3.1.
Scales with a built-in battery can work independently from the mains for approximately 30 hours in normal operation. A prerequisite for this is that the background
lighting is switched off and that no peripheral devices are connected.
The device automatically switches to battery operation as soon as the mains supply
is interrupted. When the mains supply is restored, the device automatically switches
back to mains operation.
The battery symbol indicates the present charging level of the battery. 1 segment corresponds to approx. 25 % capacity. When the symbol flashes the battery must be
charged (min. 4 hours). The charging period is extended if work is continued during
charging. The battery is protected against overcharging.
Note
The battery’s charging capacity can be reduced under continuous mains operation.
➜ To maintain the charging capacity, after a maximum of 4 weeks discharge the battery completely before recharging it.
1.3.3
Monitoring the test substances
The metrology features of the balance and any possible available adjusting weight
must be checked at regular intervals within the scope of quality assurance. For this
purpose, the answerable user must define a suitable interval as well as the nature and
scope of this check. 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. Test weights and balances can be adjusted quickly and at
a reasonable price in KERN’s accredited DKD calibration laboratory (return to national
normal).

Introduction
1.3.4
Adjustment
General:
According to the EU guideline 90/384/EEC balances must be verified officially if they
are to be used as follows (legally regulated area):
• For commercial transactions if the price of goods is determined by weighing
• For the production of medines in pharmacies as well as for analyses in the medical
and pharmaceutical laboratory
• For official purposes
• For the production of finished packages
In case of doubt, please contact your local office of weights and measures.
Verification Information:
An EU qualification approval is available for those balances marked as appropriate for
verification in the technical data. In the event that the balance is applied in an area
subject to verification as described above, it must be officially verified and re-verified
at regular intervals.
Re-verification of a balance is carried out in compliance with the respective legal provisions of the states. The term of verification validity for balances in Germany, for
example, is normally 2 years.
The legal provisions of the country of use are to be observed.

3.3.1
CAL – calibration (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. It is also recommendable to adjust the balance
periodically during weighing operation in order to obtain exact measured values.
This menu item is not available for certified scales without internal calibration weight.
Adjusting of non verifiable balances
External
For scales without an internal calibration weight:
1. Unload scale.
2. Activate menu item CAL with

The scale calibrates with the calibration weight loaded. After calibration is completed, -donE- appears briefly in the display, and the scale automatically returns
to weighing mode.
Adjusting of verifiable balances
• Switch off the scale.
• Remove the scale bottom plate by undoing the Torx TX20 retaining screws .Impor-
tant: In order to remove the bottom plate it is necessary to break the certification
seal affixed to it! Once this seal has been destroyed, the scale must be recertified
by an accredited organization, and a new certification seal must be affixed before
the instrument may be used as a certified scale again!
• Hold down the service switch (pushbutton) on the analogprint (indicated by an
arrow in the drawings below, while at the same time switching on the scale. Keep
the service switch pressed in until "Scale" appears in the display.
