Safety Instructions
The balance/scale has been constructed in accordance with the European Directives
as well as international regulations and standards for operation of electrical
equipment, electromagnetic compatibility and applicable safety requirements.
However, improper use or handling can result in damage and/or injury.
The equipment may only be operated by trained personnel.
Operators must read these installation instructions, particularly the safety
information, and must be familiar with the operation of the equipment.
The operator must supplement these warnings and safety precautions if necessary
and train operating personnel accordingly.
3
Before operating the balance, be sure to read the section on safety instructions
in the enclosed installation manual.
3
Sharp or pointed instruments (such as ballpoint pens) can
damage the device.
Use only your fingertips and press gently to operate touch screen controls.
Intended Use
Cubis models are fine precision balances with high-resolution. They were specially
developed for exact determination of the mass of materials in liquid, paste, powder
or solid form.
Suitable containers must be used to hold the materials.
The maximum balance capacity depending on the model ranges from 0.01 mg
(smallest mass determination) to 12.0 kg (largest mass determination).
Cubis models are designed specially for use in research, education and day-to-day
laboratory tasks in science, technology and industry.
They are designed to be used exclusively indoors.
Cubis models can be operated standalone, connected to a PC or in a network.

Q-Guide Operating Concept
The Cubis precision and analytical balances are controlled by application software
with interactive operator guidance. Once you open a menu or select an application,
brief instructions shown on the display will guide you through the menu or
application step-by-step. At each step along the way, the display shows only those
options that are relevant to your process; this helps prevent unnecessary “detours”
and enables you to reach your goal more quickly.
Although operation of the balance is for the most part intuitive, this manual
includes a section with very detailed, step-by-step instructions where you can learn
about all of the available options (see “Create a user profile” in the chapter entitled
“User Management”).
Basic Operational Structure
Configurable
by user

The most basic functions, weighing and taring, can be carried out as soon as the
balance is switched on. The application software is divided into three general areas
in which individual settings can be configured:

The Task Management area under (TASK) incorporates numerous preconfigured
applications that can be selected and executed directly. For more complex
requirements, separate tasks can be configured as needed.
The User Management area under (USER) lets you set up user profiles with specific
sets of configuration settings and user rights. You can also set up password
protection to meet your security requirements. If you do not require the user
management features, simply leave this area unconfigured; the balance can be
operated without defining any users.

Information for the User
Calibration and Adjustment
Background
When to calibrate
During calibration, a test weight is used to determine how much the displayed
value differs from the value actually measured by the balance. This difference is
compared to a predefined nominal mass value and is eliminated by subsequent
adjustment. During linearization, the difference of the values from the ideal
characteristic curve of the balance is compensated.
Calibration and adjustment should be performed regularly, such as daily after
switching on the balance. Also calibrate after every leveling and whenever the
ambient conditions have changed (temperature, humidity or air pressure) and when
the balance is set up in a new location.
isoCAL is an automatic calibration function built in to every Cubis balance.
You can modify this function for adaptation to your own requirements.
You also have the option of setting up a reminder function that prompts for
calibration/adjustment at user-defined intervals.
h
The process may differ depending on the presets (see System Settings /
Weighing Parameters) for the calibration/adjustment function. The
procedure described below uses the default factory settings.

menu. These are basic settings; changes are effective as soon as they are stored.
Changed settings do not affect already defined tasks.
Example: You can define the default values presented in the user menu when a
new user profile is created. If you specify a certain color as the default (such as your
company color), this setting will be preset upon creation of a user profile but can
still be individually changed. This will not change already existing user profiles.
h
All system settings are user-independent; in other words, they are applied to
all users.
t To open the System Settings menu, select Menu while in operating mode.
y The list of available system settings is displayed.
t To see all menu items, use the scroll bar on the right-hand side.
t Select the menu item for the settings you wish to edit.
The system settings are divided into the following six menus:
– Level the balance
– Calibration/adjustment data
– Timer controlled action
– Device information
– Device parameters
– Import/export data
– Service
You have already learned how to use the menus. Only the configuration options
and their meanings are described below.

Information for the User
Level the Balance (Q-Level)
For precise weighing results, it is essential that the balance be completely level. Any
slight unevenness of the surface on which the balance rests can be compensated for
by adjusting the front feet of the balance. All Cubis balances are equipped with the
automatic leveling function Q-Level. An integrated sensor detects the alignment of
the balance and generates a warning if leveling is required.
The leveling must be performed as soon as the message Level me appears in the
display. This can be done very quickly thanks to the simple user guidance.
t Make certain that the weighing pan is empty.
t Follow the instructions on the display.
Calibration/Adjustment Data
The configuration options are divided into four areas.
t Select the area in which you would like to configure settings.

Alibi Memory
The Alibi memory records weighing results without changing any characteristics
of the data. This is why it can take the place of a data printer.
The Alibi memory uses a ring buffer technique: when the memory is full, the
oldest data records are deleted to make room for new data. You can define a
storage period if desired (default: 3 months; see “Device Configuration” for details).
The Alibi memory can contain approximately 100,000 data records. For further
information on the Alibi memory, please refer to the user manual.
Search in the Alibi memory. You can search the Alibi memory according to various
search criteria: Date, time/memory number/memory ID
Browse Alibi memory. You can search the Alibi memory by paging through the
entries with the arrow buttons.
