Getting to know the B balance lines
1.1
Introducing the B balance lines
Three specially oriented B balance lines
College-B
CB
We have derived three lines for special application fields from the standard range of the B balances: School
balances (College-B), carat balances (CB) and gold balances (GB). These balances are geared to the special
requirements of the respective segments with regard to type of weighing and functions.
METTLER TOLEDO DeltaRange balances have a movable fine range with 10 times smaller display increments
(section 3.4).
All B balances are fitted with an RS232C interface as standard.
College-B
Notes
• Certified versions of the CB and GB balances are also available, please ask your METTLER TOLEDO dealer for
details.

2.1
Unpacking / Standard equipment
All B balances are supplied in an environmentally harmless package. The standard equipment of the B balances
includes
• AC adapter, to national codes,
• Weighing pan,
• operating instructions, to allow optimum utilization of the capabilities of your balance,
• Description of interface commands (“MT-SICS Reference Manual, available in English only)
• calibration weight, with CB balances and College B154 only,
• draft shield, mounted with CB balances and College B154, for mounting by user with College B303,
• carat pan, with CB balances.
Note
Calibration weights can be ordered from METTLER TOLEDO for all other B balances, see section 5.2.
2.2
Cautionary notes
• B balances may not be operated in hazardous areas.1)
• Before attachment of the AC adapter, check whether the imprinted voltage value matches the local supply
voltage. If it does not, contact your local METTLER TOLEDO dealer.

) With the PS-EX2 power supply unit/AC adapter available as an option, all B balances can be used in
Ex zone 2 (section 5.3).

2.3
Setting up
The optimum location
The correct location makes an important contribution to the accuracy of the weighing results of high-resolution
analytical and precision balances.
Hence, ensure a
• stable, vibration-free position as horizontal as possible.
Avoid
• direct sunlight,
• excessive temperature fluctuations,
• drafts.
The best position is on a stable bench in a corner protected against drafts as far as possible from doors, windows,
radiators or the ventilation slots of air conditioners.
Note
If vibrations can not be prevented, the balance can still provide accurate results if the vibration adapter is set
accordingly, see section 4.2.2.
Antitheft device
B balances have provision for the attachment of an antitheft device.
The following antitheft devices are available:
• Bolt and lock (not for GB16001)
229175
• Cable with lock (for all models)
590101

2
Leveling
B balances have a level control and adjustable leveling feet to compensate for slight irregularities in the weighing
bench surface. The balance is exactly horizontal when the air bubble 1 is in the middle.
Procedure
Turn the two leveling feet 2 and 3 as shown in the diagram or described in the table so that air bubble 1 is in the
middle.
Air bubble at "12 o'clock"
turn both leveling feet clockwise
Air bubble at "3 o'clock"
turn left leveling foot clockwise, right leveling foot counterclockwise
Air bubble at "6 o'clock"
turn both leveling feet counterclockwise
Air bubble at "9 o'clock"
turn left leveling foot counterclockwise, right leveling foot clockwise
3
Note
The balance must be releveled each time it is moved to a new location.
Connecting to the power supply
➞ Before connection of the AC adapter, check that the imprinted voltage value matches the local supply voltage.
If this is not the case, please contact your local METTLER TOLEDO dealer.
➞ Plug AC adapter into AC adapter socket of the balance and connect to the power supply.
➞ The balance performs a self-test. The test is finished when "OFF" appears.
➞ Press g briefly: balance is in operational readiness. Before any work is performed with the balance,
it should be calibrated (adjusted), (section 2.4).
Notes
Off
To achieve accurate results with balances B154 and CB1503DR, these must be connected to the power supply
for 20–30 minutes to warm up to the operating temperature. The PP-B10 PowerPack (rechargeable, external
battery) can be used to operate all B balances independently of the power supply (section 4.2.4, 5.3).

2.4
Calibration (adjusting)
To obtain accurate weighing results, the balance must be matched to the acceleration due to gravity at its location.
Cal/Menu

Calibration is necessary
• before the balance is used for the first time,
------
• at regular intervals during weighing operations,
• after a change in location.
2000.00

Procedure
To obtain accurate results, the balance must be connected to the power supply and allowed to warm up to the
operating temperature for 20–30 minutes before calibration.
➞ Have required calibration weight ready (section 5.1).

➞ The required calibration weight value flashes in the display.
➞ Place calibration weight in center of pan. The balance calibrates itself.
➞ When "0.00" flashes, remove calibration weight.
The calibration (adjustment) is finished when "0.00 g" appears in the display. The balance is again in the
weighing mode and ready for operation.
Note
• With certified balances, the calibration can be disabled after installation if required by the national certification
regulations.

Switching of weight units
All B balances can display weight values in different weight units.
• With school balances (College-B), the fixed units gram (g) and newton (N*) are available.
* As the balance is an instrument to determine mass, when school balances are used to determine force a
small measurement error arises. It depends on the geographic location as a constant conversion factor 1
^
kg = 9.80665
N is used.
• With carat and gold scales (CB, GB), 3 different units can be displayed in the weighing mode. These are freely
selectable in the menu.
The factory setting differs according to the country and the model.

The automatic shutdown appreciably extends the operating life in line-independent operation with the PP-B10
PowerPack.
When the automatic shutdown is activated, the balance switches itself off if no weighing has been performed
during the specified time. With the PowerPack the balance is then off, without the PowerPack it is on standby.

Interface
RS232C interface and interface accessories
Every B balance is fitted with an RS232C interface for
attachment to a peripheral device (e.g. printer or PC
with a 9-pin male connector). Matching to a different
device can be carried out in the menu (sections
4.2.5–4.2.8).

You will find a detailed description of the available
interface commands in the enclosed brochure “Reference Manual MT-SICS, available in English only).

The wide range of features of
the B balances regarding documentation of the results can not
be exploited to the full until a
«HAND-SHAKE»
printer, e.g. the GA42 or LCP45 from METTLER TOLEDO is
attached. The printed results
make a decisive contribution to
a simple way of working in
compliance with GLP/GMP.

Preventive maintenance
Servicing
Regular servicing of your balance by a service engineer extends its life. Ask your METTLER TOLEDO dealer for
details of the servicing possibilities.
Cleaning
The balance housing and the weighing pan are made of high-grade, resistant materials. All usual cleaning
agents can thus be used.
Note
After working with chemicals, it is advisable to wash or clean the weighing pan and the baseplate (if draft
shield fitted).
Although all materials are of high quality, corrosion may occur if corrosive substances are stored for a lengthy
period of time (and on exclusion of air, e.g. by a coat of grease) on chrome steel.

What if...?
Error/error message
ò------ô
Cause
Rectification
Overload
➞ Remove sample from weighing pan, rezero (tare).
If overload appears when balance switched on,
recalibrate (readjust) balance.
Underload
➞ Remove sample from weighing pan, rezero.
ñ------ó
Error 1
Error 2
Error 5
0
Abort
➞ Check whether weighing pan is positioned properly.
If underload appears when balance switched on,
recalibrate (readjust) balance.
No stability in taring or calibration (adjusting)
➞ Wait for stability before pressing key.
➞ Ensure more stable ambient conditions.
No or wrong calibration weight on pan
➞ Place required calibration weight in center of pan.
Balance/scale software not sufficiently up-to-date for operation
with LC-B interface.
➞ To change the balance/scale software 299702 (Order
No. 600150), ask your METTLER TOLEDO dealer.
Wrong or missing weighing pan
➞ Mount correct weighing pan.
Abort of the adjustment using the
