Keys
Display
The balances in the Masterpro
Series consist of a weighing cell
and a display and control unit.
In addition to the choice of power
supply (via AC adapter or external
rechargeable battery pack), your
balance also has an interface port
for connecting a printer, computer or
universal remote control switch.
The functions used most often
are assigned to their own specific
keys. There are additional
keys for assignment of other (multiple)
functions, in some cases
dependent on the current operating
status (so-called “soft keys”).
The display is divided into six
sections:
The display and control unit and the
weighing cell can be set up
separately. Operation of Masterpro
balances follows a uniform
“philosophy” which is described in
this manual.
Each key is described in detail in
the chapter entitled “Overview.”

Warranty
Do not miss out on the benefits of our
full warranty. Complete the warranty
registration card, indicating the date
of installation, and return the card
to your Sartorius office or dealer.
Storage and Shipping
Conditions
Allowable storage temperature:
0 °C …+40 °C (+32°F …+104°F)
The packaging has been designed
to ensure that the balance will not be
damaged even if it is dropped from
a height of 80 centimeters (about
31 inches). Do not expose the
balance to extreme temperatures,
blows, shocks, vibration or moisture.
Unpacking the Balance
● After unpacking the balance,
check it immediately for any
visible damage as a result of
rough handling during shipment.
k If this is the case, proceed
as directed in the section on
“Safety Inspection” in the chapter
entitled “Care and Maintenance.”
It is a good idea to save the box
and all parts of the packaging until
you have successfully installed your
balance. Only the original packaging provides the best protection
for shipment. Before packing your
balance, unplug all connected cables
to prevent damage. The cardboard
strips between the display and
control unit and the weighing
platform are part of the protective
packaging for shipment!
Important Note Concerning
Verified Balances Approved for
Use as Legal Measuring Instruments in the EU*:
Provided that an official seal is
required for the verified balance,
a control seal is affixed to the
balance. This seal will be irreparably damaged if you attempt to
remove it. If the seal is broken,
the validity of the verification will
become void, and you must have
your balance re-verified.

Installation Instructions
The Sartorius Masterpro balances
are designed to provide reliable
weighing results under normal
ambient conditions in the laboratory
and in industry. When choosing
a location to set up your balance,
observe the following so that you will
be able to work with added speed
and accuracy:
– Set up the balance on a stable,
even surface
– Avoid placing the balance
in close proximity to a heater or
otherwise exposing the balance to
heat or direct sunlight
– Protect the balance from
drafts that come from open
windows or doors
– Avoid exposing the balance
to extreme vibrations during
weighing
– Protect the balance from aggressive chemical vapors
– Do not expose the balance
to extreme moisture
Conditioning the Balance
Moisture in the air can condense
on the surfaces of a cold balance
whenever it is brought into a substantially warmer place. If you transfer
the balance to a warmer area, make
sure to condition it for about 2 hours
at room temperature, leaving it
unplugged from AC power.
Afterwards, if you keep the balance
connected to AC power, the
continuous positive difference in
temperature between the inside
of the balance and the outside will
practically rule out the effects
of moisture condensation.

Calibration/Adjustment
Purpose
Calibration is the determination
of the difference between the
weight readout and the true weight
(mass) of a sample. Calibration
does not entail making any changes
within the balance.
Adjustment is the correction of this
difference between the measured
value displayed and the true
weight (mass) of the sample, or the
reduction the difference to an
allowable level within the maximum
permissible error limits.
Using Verified Balances as Legal
Measuring Instruments in the EU*:
Before using your balance as
a legal measuring instrument, you
must perform “internal calibration”
at the place of installation after
the warmup period.
Available Features
Your balance can be calibrated
externally (menu item 1 9 1 or1 9 3)
or internally (1 9 4).
External calibration can
be performed
– with the pre-set weight value
(1 9 1), or
– with a user-defined weight value
(1 9 3)
Adjustment can be performed
– automatically following calibration
(1 10 1); or
– if desired, the adjustment
operation can be started manually after calibration (1 10 2)
You can also configure whether
the calibration mode
– will be activated according
to the specific setting (by setting
1 9 1, 1 9 3 or 1 9 4), or
– can be selected by the user after
pressing the q key (1 9 12).
You can have the balance
automatically display an adjustment
prompt after a certain time interval
has elapsed since the last
calibration/adjustment or when
the ambient temperature changes by
a defined amount.
You can also configure the balance
to perform calibration and
adjustment automatically (isoCAL)
when the pre-set time and/or
temperature limit is reached
(1 15 3 and 1 15 5).
You can have the calibration/
adjustment results documented in
a ISO/GLP-compliant printout.

the balance so that:
Inside the balance housing is a builtin, motorized calibration weight.
– calibration is always followed
automatically by adjustment
(cal. -> auto adjust, 1 10 1), or
The internal calibration/adjustment
sequence is as follows:
– you have the choice of ending
the sequence or starting adjustment after calibration
(cal. -> man. adjust, 1 10 2).
● Select the calibration function:

If no deviation is determined during
calibration, or the deviation is within
the tolerance limits dictated by the
degree of accuracy you require, it is
not necessary to adjust the balance.
In this case, you can end the
calibration/adjustment sequence
after calibration. There are 2 soft
keys active at this point:
– ext. adjust or int. adjust
to start adjustment
– end to end the sequence
Operating the Balance
isoCAL:
Automatic Calibration and Adjustment
Either 1 15 3 or 1 15 5 must be
selected in the Setup menu.
The “isoCAL” display automatically
begins flashing if the ambient
temperature has changed in relation
to the temperature at the time
of the last calibration/adjustment,
or after a defined time interval
has elapsed. The balance is telling
you that it wants to self-calibrate
and adjust.
In the Setup menu, you can also
configure the balance so that it
displays an adjustment prompt,
but does not perform the calibration/
functions automatically
(Only adj. prompt, 1 15 2)
Deactivating the “isoCAL”
Function in Verified Balances:
Automatic calibration is also
performed outside of the limited
temperature range if you set menu
code 1 15 1, “isoCAL function: off”
or code 1 15 2, “only at adjustment
prompt” in the Setup menu.
To generally deactivate automatic
calibration in balances with
a weighing capacity ≤12 kg:
– After the balance has been
modified by the Sartorius
Service Center
This adjustment prompt is activated
when:
– The change in temperature
or the elapsed time interval is
greater than that shown
in the table below
> Afterwards, the balance
can only be used for legal
metrology within the
temperature range allowed
by law
– The balance status does not
correspond to Setup configurations
Limited temperature range:
– For balances of accuracy
class k: +15°C to +25°C
(59°F to 77°F)
– No number or letter input is active
– The load on the pan has not been
changed within the last 2 minutes
– For balances of accuracy
class K: +10°C to +30°C
(50°F to 86°F)
– The balance has not been
operated within the last 2 minutes
– The weight on the pan must be
no more than 2% at the most of
the maximum capacity of the
balance
When these requirements are met,
the following symbols are displayed:

Determination of the
Repeatability (reproTEST)
Definition
Repeatability (reproducibility) is the
ability of the balance to display
identical readouts when it is loaded
several times with the same weight
under constant ambient conditions.
The standard deviation for a given
number of measurements is used to
quantify the repeatability.
Purpose
Preparation
The “reproTEST” function automatically calculates the repeatability of
results (based on 6 individual
measurements). In this way, the
balance determines one of the most
important quantities in relation to
the place of installation. The results
are displayed with the balance’s
accuracy.

Preparation
To calculate a piece count, the
average weight of one piece must
be known. This average piece
weight can be entered into the
Counting program in one of three
ways:
– The last reference sample
quantity entered is loaded and
displayed when you turn on the
balance. Place the same number
of parts on the balance and
initialize the counting program;
– With automatic initialization
switched on, the balance goes
into the “counting” mode when
you turn it on and loads the
last average piece weight and
corresponding reference
sample quantity that were entered
or calculated;
– Enter the average piece
weight using the numeric keys
and store it.
Reference Sample Updating
When the updat soft key is
displayed during counting, this
means you can have the average
piece weight updated (while
the piece count is displayed in the
measured value line).
The updat soft key is displayed
when:
– the balance has reached stability
– the current piece count is less than
double the original piece count
– the current piece count is less
than 100
– the internally calculated piece
count (e.g., 17.24 pcs) differs from
the nearest whole number (here:
17 pcs) by less than 0.3
Reference sample updating can be
repeated several times with an
approximately doubled piece count.

Over/Under Checkweighing O
Purpose
This program is used to check
whether a sample corresponds
to a pre-set target value or is
within a specific tolerance range.
In addition to the display in the
measured value line, the results are
shown on the bar graph and can
also be routed through the interface
port via control lines for further
electronic processing.
Available Features
– Lower tolerance limit (minimum),
target value and upper limit
(maximum) stored in long-term
memory
– Optional balance configuration
in the Setup menu for automatically initializing this application
and loading the values stored in
long term memory for the target
value and the upper and lower
tolerance limits when you turn on
the balance
– Enter target value and limits by
placing a load on the balance or
using the numeric keys
– Control in entering target and
tolerance values, so that the
upper limit ≥ the target ≥ the
lower limit ≥1 display increment
– Accuracy of a weight readout
or keyboard input as target/
tolerance value stored
corresponds to the display
accuracy
– Optional balance configuration
in the Setup menu for automatic
output to the interface port
(print application parameters)
of target value and tolerance
limits when initialization
is completed
– Control range for the balance’s
data output port lines is 30% to
170% of the target value
– Control range can be set
anywhere from 10% to infinity.
Control lines set when stability is
reached within the control range;
deleted only when you exit this
application
– Optional configuration in
the Setup menu for activation
of control lines independent
of weight value (weight within
control range, stability reached)
– Toggling the display between
weight readout and control
(checkweighing) display
by pressing v. If the weight
value exceeds tolerances,
the measured value line shows
the weight while the control
display shows “LL” for “too low”
or “HH” for “too high.”
– Toggle the text line display between weight value and control
display, nominal value “setp” and
tolerance values “min” and “max”
by pressing the w key.
– Weight displayed on bar graph in
relation to upper and lower limits
and target value.
– Optional automatic printout of
weight when it is within the
control range at stability (auto
print +/-).
After an automatic printout, the
balance is blocked. Before you
can generate the next printout,
you must unblock the balance
by unloading it (weight must be
under 30% of the target) or
by placing a load on the balance
(bringing the weight up to at
least 170% of the target).
– Press c to delete the
initialization parameters and end
the over/under checkweighing
program

Operating the Balance
Preparation
The checkweighing program requires
a target value for comparison
to the current value. This target has
a tolerance range, which is defined
by absolute weight values: upper
and lower limits. These limits can
be entered either by storing weights
on the balance or via key input.
Response of Control Lines
During Checkweighing
Configurations:
– always on
– activated at stability
There are four control lines,
called data output port lines, which
are activated as follows: (see also
the diagram at the right):
– lighter
– equal
– heavier
– set
The control range spans 30% to
170% of the target value. You can
configure this parameter in the
Setup menu (4 3 +/- ctrl ports on)
to select whether the control
lines are:
Configurations:
– activated within control range
– activated at stability within
control range
– always on
– activated within the control range
– activated at stability
– activated at stability within the
control range
This makes it possible,
for example, to connect a simple
indicator for the weighing results
(e.g., three different colors, one each
for the weighing results: too light,
O.K., too heavy).
Output port specifications
When not in use, the voltage level is high: >2.4 V/+2 mA
When in active use, the voltage level is low: <0.4 V/–2 mA.
! The output ports are not protected against short circuits!

Recalculation
Purpose
With this application program
you can compensate for over-poured
components in formulation.
If a component is over-poured when
weighing in the individual
formulation components, the mixture
already poured cannot be used
in its current composition. To avoid
having to discard the materials
weighed, you can adjust the
proportions of the formulation to
compensate for the over-pour.
When you use this application,
the recalculation procedure is mainly
performed by the balance.
Available Features
– Individual components (up to 99)
weighed in with a readout
showing from “0” to the desired
component weight
– Transaction counter shows the
next component expected
– Weighed components are stored,
followed by automatic printout
and taring
– Additive weighing of components
with printout
– Toggle the display between
component weight and total
formulation weight (additive
mode) after first component is
stored
– Stored component weight
displayed as true net weight for
2 seconds
– Enter a divisor before or during
component weighing. For
example, if the formulation has a
total weight of 100 g, enter the
divisor 10 to weigh in a total
formulation of 1,000 g.
– If a component is over-poured,
you can use the recalculation
function to change the amount
of this component indicated in the
formulation by using plus or minus
keys or numeric input. A factor
is then calculated by which all
components amounts are then
adjusted.
– After the amounts of the
components already weighed
have been corrected, weighing
continues according to the
adjusted formulation amount.
The readout is recalculated
(updated) according to the
divisor.
– You can repeat the over-pour
correction procedure as often
as necessary, in case other
components are over-poured.
– After follow-on (corrective) filling,
the total amount differs from that
given for the formulation, but the
proportion of components in
relation to each other is the
same.
– You can have the weight printed
after each measurement
– Choose whether the current
component weight or the tare
value is printed after each
measurement
– Individual component weights are
printed as “Compxx.”
– Press c to exit the application
program. The component
memory is cleared and the sum of
components printed as “S-Comp.”
– Recalculation factor displayed
in the text line, with a warning
symbol if the factor is not equal
to 1.
– All components displayed with
number and the amount (by
weight) to be added in follow-on
filling. Components displayed

Data Output Functions
There are 3 options for data output:
– Output to the display/control unit
– Output to a printer (generate a printout)
– Output to a peripheral device (e.g., computer) via the interface port
Output to the Display and Control Unit
The display is divided into 6 sections:
– Line for metrological data
– Bar graph
– Measured value line
– Weight unit display
– Symbol display
– Text line
Line for Metrological Data (when used as a legal measuring instrument)
This line shows:
Max 4200 g
– Maximum balance capacity (e.g., 4,200 g)
Min
10 g
– Minimum balance capacity; the weight must not go below this limit when
the balance is used in legal metrology (e.g., 10 g)
e=
0.1 g
– Verification scale interval of the balance; irrelevant if the balance
is not used in legal metrology (e.g., 0.1 g)
d= 0.01 g
– Readability: Indicates the actual scale interval
(display increment of the balance) (e.g., 0.01 g)
Bar Graph
In the bar graph, weighing results are displayed either
– as a percentage of the maximum
balance capacity, or
– in relation to a target value,
with tolerance limits indicated.
Measured Value Line
This line displays:
1234.56

Display of “Longer” Values
You can enter values up to 20 characters in length
(e.g., identification numbers). These are displayed in the measured value
line; this line, however, can only show up to 8 characters at a time.
When a 20-character value is displayed, for example, the last 8 characters
(13 through 20) are displayed first (in this example, the ID number is:
“Shelf 5, carton 4020”).

Synchronization
Handshake
Transmitting Device:
During data communication between
the balance and an on-line device
(computer), messages consisting
of ASCII characters are transmitted
via the interface. For error-free data
communication, the parameters for
baud rate, parity, handshake mode
and character format must be
the same for both units.
The balance interface
(Sartorius Balance Interface = SBI)
has transmit and receive buffers.
You can define the handshake
parameter in the Setup menu:
Once XOFF has been received,
it prevents further transmission of
characters. When XON in received,
it re-enables the transmitting
device to send data.
You can set these parameters
in the Setup menu so that they match
those of the on-line device. You
can also define parameters in the
balance to make data output
dependent on various conditions.
The conditions that can be configured
are described under each of
the application program
descriptions.
If you do not plug a peripheral
device into the balance interface
port, this will not generate
an error message.
– Hardware handshake (CTS)
– Software handshake
(XON, XOFF)
Hardware Handshake
With a 4-wire interface,
1 more character can be transmitted
after CTS (Clear to Send).
Software Handshake
The software handshake is
controlled via XON and XOFF.
When a device is switched on,
XON must be transmitted to
enable any connected device
to communicate.
When the software handshake
is configured in the Setup menu, the
hardware handshake becomes
active after the software handshake.
The data transmission sequence
is as follows:
Balance
(transmitting
device)
66
––– byte –––> Computer
––– byte –––> (receiving
––– byte –––>
device)
––– byte –––>
<––– XOFF –––
––– byte –––>
––– byte –––>
…
(Pause)
…
<––– XON –––
––– byte –––>
––– byte –––>
––– byte –––>
––– byte –––>
Receiving Device:
XOFF is transmitted after the
26th character has been stored.
To prevent too many control
commands from being received at
one time, XON is not transmitted
until the buffer has transmitted all but
14 characters.
If the device addressed does
not understand the control command,
the SBI receiving device activates
DTR (Data Terminal Ready)
after 6 more characters have been
received. The busy signal is
deactivated by XON (14 characters).
Operating the Balance
Activating Data Output
You can define the data output
parameter so that output is activated
either when a print command
is received or automatically and
synchronous with the balance
display or at defined intervals
(see application program
descriptions and auto print settings).
Data Output by Print Command
The print command can be
transmitted by pressing p or by
a software command (Esc P).
Automatic Data Output
In the “auto print” operating mode,
data are output to the interface
port without a print command. You
can choose to have data output
automatically at defined print
intervals with or without the stability
parameter. Whichever parameter
you select, the data will be output
as the readouts appear on the
balance display. The display update
frequency depends on both the
model of the balance and the current
operating state.
If you select the auto print setting,
data will be transmitted immediately
the moment you turn on the balance.
In the Setup menu, you can
configure whether this automatic
output can be stopped and started
by pressing p.

Declarations of Conformity
The C Mark on Sartorius Equipment
In 1985, the Council of the European
Community approved a resolution
concerning a new approach to the
technical harmonization and
standardization of national
regulations. The organization for
monitoring compliance with the
directives and standards concerning
the C marking is governed in the
individual EU Member States through
the implementation of the EC
Directives adopted by the respective
national laws. As of December
1993, the scope of validity for all
EC Directives has been extended
to the Member States of the
European Union and the Signatories
of the Agreement on the European
Economic Area.
Sartorius complies with the EC
Directives and European Standards
in order to supply its customers with
weighing instruments that feature
the latest advanced technology and
provide many years of trouble-free
service.
The C mark may be affixed only to
weighing instruments and associated
equipment that comply with the
applicable Directive(s):
Weighing Instruments for Use
in Legal Metrology:
Directive 90/384/EEC “Nonautomatic Weighing Instruments”
Council Directive 89/336/EEC
“Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)”
This Directive regulates the
determination of mass in legal
metrology.
Acceptable European Standards:
Limitation of emissions:
EN 50081-1
Residential, commercial and
light industry
EN 50081-2
Industrial environment
Defined immunity to interference:
EN 50082-1
Residential, commercial and
light industry
EN 50082-2
Industrial environment
Important Note:
The operator shall be responsible
for any modifications to Sartorius
equipment and for any connections
of cables or equipment not supplied
by Sartorius and must check and,
if necessary, correct these modifications and connections. On request,
Sartorius will provide information on
the minimum operating specifications
(in accordance with the Standards
listed above for defined immunity to
interference).
Council Directive 73/23/EEC
“Electrical Equipment Designed for Use
within Certain Voltage Limits”

If you use electrical equipment in
installations and under ambient
conditions requiring higher safety
standards, you must comply with the
provisions as specified in the
applicable regulations for installation
in your country.
For the respective Declaration of
Conformity for weighing instruments
that have been verified by Sartorius
for use as legal measuring instruments and that have an EC TypeApproval Certificate, see the page
after next.
This Directive also regulates the
performance of the EC verification
by the manufacturer, provided that
an EC Type-Approval Certificate has
been issued and the manufacturer
has been accredited by an officer
or a Notified Body registered
at the Commission of the European
Community for performing such
verification.
The legal basis allowing Sartorius to
perform EC verification is constituted
by the EC Council Directive No.
90/384/ EEC on non-automatic
weighing instruments that has been
in effect since January 1, 1993, in
the Internal Market as well as by the
Certificate of Accreditation of the
Sartorius AG Quality Management
System issued by the Metrology
Department of the Regional
Administration Office of Lower
Saxony, Germany (“Niedersächsisches Landesverwaltungsamt
-Eichwesen”) on February 15, 1993.
