2. INTRODUCTION
This manual describes how the SW Series Super Washdown Scales work and how to
get the most out of them in terms of performance. Please read this manual completely
before using the scale.
3. FEATURES
The SW Series Super Washdown Scales have the following features:
‰ Dust-tight and water-tight construction, complying with IP69K.
‰ The weighing platforms and weighing pans are made of stainless steel (SUS304).
‰ The weighing platforms are designed for easy cleaning and not to collect dust.
Three sizes of weighing platform are available.
‰ Employing touch-sensitive keys enabled the display to be covered with a plastic
sheet, resulting in better dust-tight and water-tight performance.
When a key is touched, the corresponding LED, above that key, turns on to indicate
that the key has been touched.
‰ A bright LED display, with a broad viewing angle.
‰ Three types of weight display resolution are available to cover various applications,
1/3,000, 1/6,000 (1/7,500 for some models) and 1/12,000 (or 1/15,000 for some
models). (To be selected in the function setting.)
Note: The weight display resolution of the Legal for Trade models is fixed. The
selection in the function setting is not available.
‰ The counting mode easily counts the number of objects of the same weight.
‰ The comparator mode compares the displayed value (weight value) with the
previously set comparator values and indicates the results by the large and bright
LED display. The optional comparator relay output (SW-03) can output the results
as a relay signal.
‰ The auto-tare function, used with the comparator mode, automatically tares and
displays “OK” for a certain amount of sample and repeats this process with the next
weighing.
‰ Available weighing units are kg (kilogram), g (gram), Ib (pound), oz (ounce), Ib-oz
(pound and ounce) and pcs (pieces for the counting mode).
‰ The optional RS-232C serial interface (SW-03) or optional RS-422/485 serial
interface (SW-04) can transmit the weight value to a printer or personal computer.
‰ The optional sealed lead acid (SAL) battery (HC-02i) can be installed, allowing the
scale to be used where an AC power source is not available.

4. PRECAUTIONS
4.1. Installing the scale
DANGER
• Ground the scale so that the user will not be subject to an electric shock.
• The base frame is connected to the power GND (EXC-) inside the load
cell. Be sure to earth ground the AC power cable. When the AC electrical
outlet has no ground terminal, use the ground terminal (screw with the
ground symbol) on the scale.
Location of the ground terminal
Models with a display pole: lower part of the display pole
Models with no display pole: bottom of the weighing pan
• Do not handle the AC power cable with wet hands.
• The AC plug is not water-resistant. Use an electrical outlet located at a
place where the plug will not get wet.
• Even when the optional sealed lead acid (SLA) battery (HC-02i) is used,
be sure to prevent the AC plug from getting wet.
• Do not handle the cables carelessly.
• Do not install the scale where flammable or corrosive gas is present.
Consider the following conditions to get the most from your scale.
‰ Install the scale where the temperature and relative humidity are stable, with no drafts
or vibration.
‰ Install the scale on a solid and level surface.
‰ Do not install the scale in direct sunlight.
‰ Do not install the scale near heaters or air conditioners.
‰ Do not install the scale near equipment which produces magnetic fields.
‰ Do not install the scale in a place where it is possible to be charged with static
electricity, or where the relative humidity is lower than 45% RH. Insulators such as
plastic are often charged with static electricity.
‰ Use a stable power source.
‰ Calibrate the scale before use or after having moved it to another location.
In addition, calibrate it periodically to maintain the accuracy.
(Refer to “12. CALIBRATION”).
4.2. Operating the scale
‰ Periodically ensure that the scale weighs correctly.
‰ Calibrate the scale periodically to maintain the weighing accuracy (Refer to “12.
CALIBRATION”).
‰ Do not place anything on the pan that is beyond the weighing capacity.
‰ Do not apply a shock load to the scale.
‰ Touch the keys only with a finger.
‰ Confirm zero before each weighing to prevent possible error.
5
4.3. Cleaning the scale
‰ Do not disassemble the scale.
‰ Do not use solvents to clean the scale.
‰ The scale can be washed with water completely.

“bat ooo”
2
“bat _oo”
3
“bat __o”
4
“bat ___” No capacity (Low battery)
At level 3, prepare to recharge the battery.
At level 4, recharge the battery immediately. (Refer to “14.1. Using the HC-02i
battery”.)
After the weight value internally becomes stable, the display turns off for a moment,
and then, zero is displayed along with the ZERO indicator (power-on zero).
If the weight value is unstable, “------” is displayed. Check if anything touches
the weighing pan, or if there is a strong draft or vibration. Eliminate the cause of the
error.
The range for power-on zero is within ±50% (within ±10% for the Legal for Trade
models) of the weighing capacity (kg) around the calibrated zero point.
If the power is turned ON while there is a load beyond this range, “------” is
displayed. Remove the load from the weighing pan.
‰ If the scale is to be turned ON with some item loaded, performing a zero calibration
with the item loaded will allow the scale to turn ON that way. (Refer to “12.
CALIBRATION”.) In this case, make sure that the total weight of the item loaded at
power-on and the object to be weighed is within the weighing capacity.
2. Press and hold the
ON/OFF
key to turn the power OFF.

10. COMPARATOR
Five-level, three-level and seven-level (portion weighing mode) comparators are
available.
Each comparator mode compares the weight value against the preset limit values and
outputs the results using LEDs (yellow / green / red).
When the optional comparator relay output (SW-03) is installed, the results are output
as a relay signal.
• Five-level comparator mode:
Uses four comparator values to
compare the weight value and outputs
results in five levels of LOLO, LO, OK,
HI and HIHI.
• Three-level comparator mode:
Uses two comparator values (upper
and lower limit values) to compare the
weight value and outputs results in
three levels of LO, OK and HI.
• Seven-level comparator mode (portion weighing mode):
Uses six comparator values to
compare the weight value and outputs
results in seven levels of over in the
negative value, level 1 (LOLO), level 2
(LO), Level 3 (OK), level 4 (HI), level 5
(HIHI) and over in the positive value.
‰ To use the comparator modes, the function settings “Cp-l” and “Cp” must be
specified and the comparator values must be set.
‰ Using the function setting “Cp-l”, select a comparator mode.
0: five-level comparator mode
1: three-level comparator mode
2: Seven-level comparator mode (portion weighing mode)
‰ Using the function setting “Cp”, select comparison conditions.

11. AUTO-TARE FUNCTION
The SW series has an auto-tare function to be used with the comparator mode enabled.
Using this function in check weighing, the scale automatically tares, then displays “OK”
for a certain amount of sample and repeats this process for the next weighing.
Start with display zero after tare operation. Place or take away objects until the
comparison result will show OK. When the stable display is maintained for the duration
specified in the function setting “at-t”, the scale will automatically tare the weight,
show zero and be ready for next weighing.
‰ In some countries or areas, the auto-tare function can not be used on the Legal for Trade
models and the selection in the function settings “at”, “at-t” and “at-f” is not available.
‰ To use the auto-tare function, set the function settings below.
Cp 1:
Compare all weighing data (other settings may be used depending on the
application).
at 1:
Auto-tare function enabled.
at-t 0 ~ 9: Select the timing to tare automatically to avoid the wrong tare operation, for
example; too early to tare, to take a longer time to go to the next weighing.
‰ Take-away check weighing “Cp-p 1” (Example with “Cp-l 0” setting)
Take-away check weighing (negative comparison) is the way to compare the
negative weight while taking away objects from a container.
Set the function “Cp-p 1” together with the auto-tare function enabled “at 1”. In
this operation mode, the scale operates as “take-away the objects” Æ “OK and
stable” Æ “auto-tare” Æ “take-away the objects” Æ ······.
In this setting, the polarity of LOLO, LO, HI, and HIHI limit values are ignored and
the scale shows the comparator results as below.
Note: To start the take-away check weighing, be sure to use the TARE key to tare
the weight of the container filled with objects. The ZERO key may zero the
display, and the scale goes below the zero point by taking out the objects. Then,
the auto-tare function does not work.
‰ When the function “at-f 1 Tares the initial (container) weight.” is selected:
To start the auto-tare function, usually the container (filled with objects) will be placed on
the weighing pan and its weight must be tared using the TARE key. When the function
“at-f 1” is selected, the scale will tare the initial (container) weight automatically.
When all load on the weighing pan is removed, the scale will return to the zero point
and the tare weight will be automatically cleared. If the scale does not return to the zero
point, press the ZERO key to clear the tare weight.
‰ If the scale is equipped with the optional RS-232C serial interface (SW-03) or optional
RS-422/485 serial interface (SW-04), the OK weighing data only can be output
automatically. Set the function setting “prt 5”.

Data format
The data format for the RS-422/485 is the same as the RS-232C except the following:
‰ When used with the function setting “5if 1” (RS-422) or “5if 2” (RS-485), set a
different address to each scale using the function setting “adr##”. ((##=01 to 99)
‰ Start all commands with “@##” (## is the address of the scale to send a command).
All replies from the scale start with “@##”.
The format after “@##” is the same as the RS-232C, both in commands and replies.
‰ When used with the RS-485 interface (function setting: “5if 2”), note the following:
• When sending commands continuously, leave an interval of 500 ms or more
between commands.
• Do not use stream mode (function setting: “prt 0”) when sending commands.
Commands will not be received correctly and will be invalid.

15. MAINTENANCE
15.1. Notes on maintenance
‰ Do not disassemble the scale. Contact your local A&D dealer if the scale needs
service or repair.
‰ Use the original packaging for transportation.
‰ Do not use organic solvents to clean the scale. Use a warm lint free cloth
dampened with a mild detergent.
‰ Calibrate the scale periodically to maintain the weighing accuracy.
15.2. Error codes
Overload error
Indicates that an object beyond the weighing capacity
has been placed on the weighing pan.
Remove the object from the weighing pan.
Underload error
Indicates that the weight sensor receives a strong
upward force. Check if the weighing pan is touching
anything or if there is anything in the base. There is a
possibility that the weight sensor or internal circuit may
have a problem.
Unit weight error
Indicates that the sample weight is too light to set the unit
weight in the counting mode.
CAL error
Indicates that the calibration procedure is canceled
because the calibration weight is too light.
Check that the weighing pan is installed properly and the
mass of the calibration weight.
Low battery
Indicates that the HC-02i battery is depleted.
Charge the battery immediately.
Other
There may be an internal malfunction.
(∗ indicates an error number.)
Note: If the error persists or other errors occur, contact your local A&D dealer.
