1.0 OPERATION

1.1 TURNING ON THE BALANCE FOR THE FIRST TIME

For the first time, you should assemble the balance as follows:

Set your balance in a suitable place and free from vibration.

Gently place the pan support (if required) and the stainless steel pan on the weighing platform. For the

PGL203, 303 models, place the draught shield around the pan.

Finally level the balance using the adjustable feet and spirit level then connect the power.

It is a good idea to let the balance achieve a stable internal temperature before use – normally 30 min warm up time is advisable.

A stable sign ~ is shown when the balance is in stable condition.

It will turn off if the balance is not stable. Exact zero is shown when the “ 0  “ symbol is on to the left of the display area.

NOTE: If a passcode has been set to limit access to the weighing functions the display will show

“PASSCODES”

. The display will change to show 7 digits set to zero with the rightmost digit flashing. Use the numeric entry method (details in 1.2) to enter the secure code. See Supervisors Menu to see how to set the security code.

1.2 NUMERIC ENTRY METHOD

To set a value when required, use the keys as given below-

- [Up] and [Down] keys to increase or decrease the flashing digit,

- [Advance] and [Back] keys to advance or move back the digit and

- [Enter] key to accept the value

1.3 WEIGHING

If required, press [

→ →

0/T

← ←

] to zero the balance. Then place a mass on the pan and the weight will be displayed.

If a container is used, press [

→ → → →

0/T

← ← ← ←

] to tare the balance.

“ Net” will be displayed to indicate that the balance is tared.

When the display shows zero, place the item to be weighed. Only the net weight will be displayed.

NOTE: At any time the [Unit] key can be pressed to select another unit. Use the [Up] or [Down] key to scroll through the units and select the desired unit by pressing the [Enter] key. The available weighing units can be enabled or disabled by the user (see section 5.0) o

Troy ounces

Grains

Pennyweights symbol lb ozt

GN dwt

Newtons N Custom custom

If “CUSTOM” unit is selected, the balance will prompt for entering a multiplier by displaying “MULTIPLIER

XX,XXX” , where “XX,XXX” is the last stored value. Any value ranging from 0.100 to 10.000 may be entered, by which the weight in grams will be multiplied before being displayed. If a multiplier of greater than 1.000 is entered, the number of decimal places displayed will be reduced by one. This multiplier value will be saved for the next use till it is changed by the user.

2.0 FUNCTIONS

When weighing, the user can access the applications that have been enabled weighing. The selectable functions can be enabled using a similar method to the Units above by turning the functions on or off.

( see

5.0 menu structure for details

2.1 PARTS COUNTING

“100%”

5) Remove the sample and place an unknown sample to display the percentage weight

6) To set another weight as 100%, press [Mode] and continue from step 2 above.

--Manual entry--

7) To manually enter a value to be set as 100%, when “PERCENT SAMPLE” is shown to select “PERCENT

Ent Wt” by press the [Enter] key.

8) Enter the weight using the numeric entry method (See section 1.2). Place unknown sample to display the percentage weight

9) To perform percent weighing with another sample press [Mode] and continue from step 2 above.

10) To return to normal weighing, press [Mode] then press [Esc].

2.3 CHECK WEIGHING

During weighing of a sample the balance can be set to show if the weight is above or below an upper and a lower limit.

The arrows and bars between the arrows will indicate when the weight is below the lower limit, between the limits or above the upper limit.

The buzzer can be set to be active when the weight is outside the limits or within the limits, or turned off. If desired, only one limit needs to be set. If only one limit is set the other limit is considered to be zero (lower) or the maximum (upper).

Steps:

1) Press [Mode] and then the [Up] or [Down] key to select Check Weighing. When
