Straight weighing display – 3-line mode
• You can switch display layouts with the soft key
or select the display layout in the
Terminal menu.
• The selected display layout is active for all applications.
Straight weighing display – Bargraph
In the auxiliary lines a graphic display of the scale capacity can be activated.
Prerequisite: In the Application menu Bargraph is activated for one of the auxiliary lines.
The bargraph indicates roughly which part of the scale capacity is already occupied and what capacity is
still available.
In the example above, approximately 3/4 of the scale capacity is occupied, although the applied net weight
isn’t really high. The reason therefore could be a high tare weight.

Introduction
1.4 Commissioning
1.4.1 Selecting the location
The correct location is crucial for the accuracy of the weighing results.
1 Select a stable, vibration-free and, if possible, a horizontal location for
the weighing platform.
ð The ground must be able to safely bear the weight of the fully
loaded weighing platform.
2 Observe the following environmental conditions:
ð No direct sunlight
ð No strong drafts
ð No excessive temperature fluctuations
1.4.2 Levelling
Levelling of weighing platforms
Only weighing platforms that have been levelled precisely horizontally,
provide accurate weighing results. Weights and Measures approved
weighing platforms have a level bubble to simplify levelling.
-
Turn the adjustable feet of the weighing platform until the level bubble’s
air bubble is inside the inner circle.
Levelling of compact scales ICS685-.../f
On compact scales levelling can be done in an easier way.

ICS689g weighing terminal.
Weighing platforms with digital scale interface
-
Connect the weighing platform connector to the ICS685i / ICS689i or ICS685s / ICS689s weighing
terminal.
• If you have ordered an approved weighing system consisting of an ICS685s weighing terminal
and an approved PBD555 weighing platform, the approval was done in the factory (not for the
US market).
• You can disconnect the weighing platform from the ICS685s / ICS689s or ICS685i / ICS689i
weighing terminal of an approved weighing system without violating the approval.
If another weighing platform is connected to the weighing terminal, the system is not approved.
If the weighing platform of the approved system is connected again, the approval is valid again.
• If you have ordered an approved weighing system consisting of an ICS685s / ICS689s
weighing terminal and an approved PBK/PFK weighing platform, the approval was done in the
factory (not for the US market).
• If you have connected a non-approved weighing platform and want to have the system
approved, call the METTLER TOLEDO service technician.

Introduction
1.4.5 Handling the storage battery
Battery symbol
The battery symbol shows the current charging status of the storage
battery.
• One segment corresponds with approx. 25 % capacity.
• If the symbol flashes, the storage battery has to be charged.
• During charging the segments are "running" until the battery is
fully charged and all segments light up continuously.
Note the following when operating a device with a built-in storage battery:
• Before the first operation charge the storage battery for at least 3 hours.
• The operating life depends on the intensity of use, the configuration, and the connected scale. For details
concerning ICS685, see "Operating life with battery [} 132]", or concerning ICS689, see "Operating life
with battery [} 138]".
• The charging time of the storage battery amounts to 4 to 5 hours. The storage battery is protected
against overcharging.
• The storage battery has a service life of 500 to 1,000 charging/discharging cycles.
CAUTION
Charging the storage battery below 0° C (32 °F) or above 40 °C (104 °F) is
prevented by the charging electronics!
a) Make sure that the temperature is within the range of 0 °C to 40 °C (32 °F to 104 °F)
to charge the storage battery.
CAUTION
Danger of soiling because the charger for the storage battery is not protected
according to IP69K!
a) Do not charge the device in humid or dusty rooms.
b) After the storage battery has been charged, close the cover cap of the charging socket
on the device.
Recommended use of the storage battery
The characteristics mentioned above are only valid if the following recommendations are observed:
• Change the battery as soon as the warning message "Low battery" appears and the battery symbol
starts flashing. When the message appears, you still have enough time (at least 10 minutes), to
complete your current task.
• For optimum battery performance, operate the device with built-in storage battery at an ambient
temperature range of 10 °C to 30 °C (50 °F to 86 °F). This also applies to discharging the battery.

Off: No tolerance type predefined. It can be set individually when entering
Over/Under Checkweighing parameters.
Absolute: A low and a high weight value must be entered. These weights
and all weights within this range are treated as being within tolerance.
Relative: The target weight has to be entered as an absolute weight,
upper and lower tolerances as deviations in weight from the target weight.
Percent: The target weight has to be entered as an absolute weight, upper
and lower tolerances as deviations in percent from the target weight. This
setting is not available for counting.

Threshold as % of Tol–
Threshold to determine at which weight the status of Tol– is indicated.
To avoid Tol– being active at zero or a very low weight, you can define
the "Threshold as % of Tol–".
When Threshold as % of Tol– is reached, the colored display will change
from the "Below threshold" color to the "Tolerance –" color.
This feature can be used to show the "Tolerance –" color close to the
target or as additional setpoint for I/O control.
This setpoint is available on the optional digital I/O interface as well.
Example: Target = 1000 g, Tol– = 100 g
Threshold = x % * (Target – (Tol–))
Threshold = 12 % * (1000 g – 100 g) = 12 % * 900 g = 108 g
In the example, the Tol– color is displayed for weights from 108 g up to
900 g.

11.1 Metrological information
Scales that have been factory-calibrated have a label indicating this
on the packaging.
Scales with a green M on the type plate are ready for operation.
Scales that are calibrated in two stages have a label indicating this
on the packaging.
These scales have only been calibrated in a first stage (declaration
of conformity in accordance with EN 45501-8.2). The second stage
of the calibration must be done on-site by authorized service
personnel. Please contact your local representative.
M
M
Medium accuracy scales that are used in commerce where certified calibration is required must be
calibrated and certified.
Observe the respective measurement data guidelines in your country.
11.2 Table of Geo Code values
For weighing instruments verified at the manufacturer’s, the Geo Code value indicates the country or
geographical zone for which the instrument is verified. The Geo Code value set in the instrument
(e.g. "Geo 18") appears briefly after switching on.
Table "Geo Code values 3000e" shows the Geo Code values for European countries.
Table "Geo Code values 6000e/7500e" shows the Geo Code values for different gravitation zones.
