INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Before beginning installation of your C Series Digital Counting Scale, make certain the scale
has been received in good condition. Carefully remove the scale from the shipping carton
and inspect it for any evidence of damage (such as exterior dents or scratches) that may
have taken place during shipment. Keep the carton and packing material for return
shipment if it should become necessary. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to file all
claims for any damages or loss incurred during transit.
Placement
Place the scale on a stable, vibration-free level surface away from direct sunlight and from
any rapidly moving air source (heating/cooling vents, fans, etc.). Make certain the power
cord and peripheral cables are routed out of the way of normal traffic.
CAUTION! DO NOT place the scale on any unstable cart, stand or table. The
scale may fall causing injury to the operator, and seriously damage the unit,
or proper operation of the scale may be inhibited.
Level Adjustment
Check to make certain the scale is level. The level indicator is
located at the front of the scale. If the scale is not level (the bubble
will not be centered), loosen the locking ring on all four (4) mounting
feet and adjust them as required to center the bubble and attain a
level scale. Once a level condition has been obtained, lock the
mounting feet in place by tightening the adjustment locking rings
against the bottom of the scale.
Not Level
Level
Power Connection
The scale contains a power supply that converts the 110/120/220/240 VAC 50/60Hz wall
supply to the power required by the scale circuitry. The power supply also contains the
circuitry necessary to monitor and recharge the battery and is capable of operating the scale
and recharging the battery simultaneously.
AC Operation
Plug the power cord into a grounded, polarized wall receptacle that supplies 110/120 VAC
50/60Hz power. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, make certain it is a 3-wire, fully
grounded type using a minimum of 18-gauge wire. Be certain the power cord is routed out
of the way of normal traffic. If only an ungrounded wall receptacle is available, it is the
customer's responsibility to contact a qualified electrician to replace the ungrounded
receptacle with a properly grounded polarized wall receptacle or have a grounding adapter
properly installed.
WARNING! To avoid electrical hazard, DO NOT under any circumstances,
cut, remove, alter, or in any way bypass the power cord-grounding prong.
It is the responsibility of the customer to contact a qualified electrician to install the
proper power cord connector. Plug the power cord into a grounded, polarized wall
receptacle that supplies 220/240 VAC 50/60Hz power. Be certain the power cord is routed
out of the way of normal traffic.

PRECAUTIONS
Most scales are designed for an office type environment. The C Series Digital Counting
Scale is no exception to that rule. The following should be used as a guideline for the
proper environment to operate your scale:

The environment should be free of excessive dust and moisture.

Provide a comfortable temperature. In general, the scale will perform well over a
temperature range of 32 to 104° F (0 to +40° C).

To keep cooling requirements to a minimum, the scale should be placed out of direct
sunlight and to provide adequate air circulation, keep the area around the scale clear.

Make certain the scale is not directly in front of a heating or cooling vent. Such a location
will subject the scale to sudden temperature changes and air currents that may result in
unstable weight readings.

Insure that the scale has good, clean AC power and is properly grounded. In areas
subject to lightning strikes, additional protection to minimize lightning damage, such as
surge suppressors, should be installed.
CARE AND CLEANING
1. DO NOT submerge the scale in water, pour or spray water directly on it.
2. DO NOT use acetone, thinner or other volatile solvents for cleaning.
3. DO clean the indicator with a damp soft cloth and mild non-abrasive detergent.
4. DO remove power before cleaning with a damp cloth.
5. DO clean and store the scale in a plastic bag (in a dry environment) if the scale is not
going to be used for some time. A desiccant packet may be included to prevent moisture
build up.
6. DO recharge the internal battery every three months while in storage.

RECHARGEABLE LEAD-ACID BATTERY
Battery Charging
The scale can charge the battery (lead-acid rechargeable battery, 6v/4Ah). Just connect
the scale to the external power supply to charge it. The battery will be charged regardless
if the scale is on or off. It takes approximately 12 hours to charge the battery to full
capacity depending on the voltage of the battery. If the battery has been-discharged, a
prolonged charging time is required to bring the battery back to full capacity.
Red light: The battery is charging.
Green light: The battery is fully charged.
Low Battery
When the battery voltage falls below 5.7v, the low battery annunciator
will be turned on.
The battery must be recharged. Continued use (approximately 15 minutes later), the
display will show Lo BAt in the weight field. If the battery voltage drops too low for
accurate weighing, the scale will automatically shut off and you will be unable to turn it
back on. When the low battery indicator is displayed, the operator should plug the power
supply into the scale and then into the proper electrical wall outlet. The scale will begin
charging the battery.
Notice
The battery should be recharged at least every 5 months regardless if it is used or not.
After a long time storage, e.g. over 3 months, it is desired to cycle (charge/discharge) the
battery 3 times to let it restore to full capacity.
When replacing the battery, pay much attention to the poles. The positive (+) terminal
must be connected to the red connector and the negative (-) terminal must be connected to
the black connector. If connected wrongly, the battery will be damaged.
NOTE: The battery cover can be removed by loosening a single captive screw. This
screw remains attached to the cover which prevents it from falling out of the cover or
being dropped and lost.
The capacity of the batteries will reduce over the years and therefore also the total
operation time of the scale. This is not an error of the scale, but it is normal behavior or
rechargeable batteries.
