6.0 OPERATION
NOTE: GBC/GFC-a Scales only
SETTING THE WEIGHING UNIT, lb or kg
The scale will turn on displaying the last weighing unit selected, either kilograms or
pounds. To change the weighing unit press the [U. Wt./Units] key when the “Unit
Weight” display shows zero. If necessary press the [CE] key to clear the unit weight
before changing.
6.1
ZEROING THE DISPLAY
• You can press the [Zero] key at any time to set the zero point from which
all other weighing and counting is measured. This will usually be necessary
only when the platform is empty. When the zero point is obtained the
“Weight” display will show the indicator for zero, “>Z<”.
• The scale has an automatic re-zeroing function to account for minor drifting
or accumulation of material on the platform. However you may need to
press [Zero] to re-zero the scale if small amounts of weight are still shown
when the platform is empty.
6.2
TARING
• Zero the scale by pressing the [Zero] key if necessary. The indicator “>Z<”
will be ON.
• Place a container on the platform and its weight will be displayed.
• Press [Tare] to tare the scale. The weight that was displayed is stored as
the tare value which is subtracted from the display, leaving zero on the
display. The indicators “Net” and “>Z<” will be ON.
• As a product is added only the weight of the product will be shown. The
scale could be tared a second time if another type of product was to be
added to the first one. Again only the weight that is added after taring
will be displayed.
• When the container is removed a negative value will be shown. If the
scale was tared just before removing the container, this value is the gross
weight of the container plus all products those were removed. The
indicator “>Z<” will also be ON because the platform is back to the same
condition as it was when the [Zero] key was pressed last.
6.2.1 Preset Tare
• The user can enter a preset tare value if the display is at zero or gross
weight. Enter the value for preset tare using the keypad, then press the
P a g e 11
© Adam Equipment Company 2014
[Tare] key to set the preset zero value.
• If the display was at zero the weight will show a negative value equal to
the preset tare value entered and the “Net” indicator will be on.
6.3
PARTS COUNTING
6.3.1 Setting Unit Weight
In order to do parts counting it is necessary to know the average weight of the items
to be counted. This can be done by weighing a known number of the items and letting
the scale determine the average unit weight or by manually inputting a known unit
weight using the keypad.
A. Weighing a sample to determine the Unit Weight
To determine the average weight of the items to be counted, you will need to
place a known quantity of the items on the scale and then to key in the number
of items being weighed. The scale will then divide the total weight by the
number of items and display the average unit weight. Press [CE] anytime to
clear the unit weight.
• Zero the scale by pressing the [Zero] key if necessary. If a container is to
be used, place the container on the scale and tare by pressing [Tare] as
discussed earlier.
• Place a known quantity of items on the scale. After the weight display is
stable, enter the quantity of items using the numeric keys and then press
the [Smpl] key.
• The number of units will be displayed on the "Count" display and the
computed average weight will be shown on the "Unit Weight" display.
• As more items are added to the scale, the weight and the quantity will
increase.
• If a quantity which is smaller than the sample is placed on the scale, then
the scale will automatically enhance the Unit Weight by re-calculating it.
To lock the Unit Weight and avoid re-sampling, press [U. Wt./Units].
• If the scale is not stable, the calculation will not be completed. If the
weight is below zero, the “Count” display will show negative count.
P a g e 12
© Adam Equipment Company 2014
B. Entering a known Unit Weight
• If the unit weight is already known then it is possible to enter that value
using the keypad.
• Enter the value of the unit weight in grams, using the numeric keys
followed by pressing the [U. Wt./Units] key. The "Unit Weight" display
will show the value as it was entered.
• The sample is then added to the scale and the weight will be displayed as
well as the quantity, based on the unit weight.
6.3.2 Counting more parts
• After the unit weight has been determined or entered, it is possible to
use the scale for parts counting. The scale can be tared to account for the
container weight as discussed in the earlier section.
• After the scale is tared the items to be counted are added and the
"Count" display will show the number of items, computed using the total
weight and the unit weight.
• It is possible to increase the accuracy of the unit weight at any time
during the counting process by entering the count displayed and then
pressing the [Smpl] key. You must be certain that the quantity displayed
matches the quantity on the platform before pressing the key. The unit
weight can be adjusted based upon a larger sample quantity. This will
give greater accuracy when counting larger sample sizes.
6.3.3 Check-counting
• Check-counting is a procedure to cause an alarm to sound when the
number of items counted on the scale meets or exceeds a number stored
in the memory by using the [Pst] key.
• The value to be stored is entered from the keyboard. Enter the numeric
value to be stored using the numeric keys. Then press the [Pst] key to
store the value.
• To clear the value from the memory and thereby turn off the checkcounting feature, enter the value "0" and press [Pst].
• During counting if the count is below the setpoint the “Lo” indicator will
be on, if it is equal to the set point the “OK” indicator will be on and if it is
above the limit the “Hi” indicator will be on.
6.3.4 Manually Accumulated Totals
• The values (weight and count) shown on the display can be added to the
P a g e 13

•
•
•
•
•
values in the memory by pressing the [M+] key. The "Weight" display will
show the total weight, the "Count" display will show the total
accumulated count and the "Unit Weight" display shows the number of
times, the items have been added to the memory for accumulation. The
values will be displayed for 2 seconds before returning to normal. If the
accumulated number exceeds 6 digits the display will show “diSPEr”, the
count is still being stored correctly and the RS232 printout will still show
the correct values.
The “Mem” symbol will be on when there are values stored in the
accumulation memory.
The scale must return to zero or a negative number, before another
sample can be added to the memory.
More products can then be added and the [M+] key to be pressed again.
This can continue for up to 99 entries or until the capacity of the
“Weight” display is exceeded. When the weight exceeds 6 digits the
display will show “diSPEr”.
To observe the total stored value, press the [MR] key. The total will be
displayed for 2 seconds.
To clear the memory- first press [MR] to recall the totals from memory
and then press the [CE] key to clear all values from the memory.
6.3.6 Automatic Accumulated Totals
• The scale can be set to automatically accumulate totals when a weight is
placed on the scale. This eliminates the need to press the [M+] key to
store values into the memory. However the [M+] key is still active and
can be pressed to store the values immediately. In this case the values
will not be stored when the scale returns to zero.
• See the Section 9.0 on RS-232 Interface for details on how to enable
Automatic Accumulation.

00004
KiLoS
• Place the calibration weight on the platform. If the calibration weight is
different from the value shown, Press [CE] to clear the current value then
enter the correct value.
• Press [Tare] to calibrate.
• When calibration is done the display will show “SPAn” “PASS”.
• Remove the weight. The scale will return to normal weighing.
• If an error message “SPAn” “FAIL” is displayed, then repeat the process.
•
After calibration, the scale should be checked whether the calibration is
correct. If necessary, repeat calibration.
NOTE: GBC/GFC-a scales will have the lb or kg indicator on, to show the unit of the
weight requested. If the scale was in pounds before starting the calibration, the
weights requested will be in pound values or if the scale was weighing in kilograms
then metric weights will be requested.

empty. The battery should be charged as possible. Once the “LO bAT”
message is shown the scale will still operate for about 10 minutes after
which it will automatically switch off to protect the battery.
• To charge the battery, simply apply power to the scale. The scale does
not need to be turned on.
• The battery should be charged for at least 12 hours for full capacity.
• Just above the “Unit Weight” display is an LED to indicate the status of
battery charging. When the scale is plugged into the mains power, the
internal battery will be charged. If the LED is green the battery is fully
charged. If it is red, the battery is nearly discharged and yellow indicates
the battery should be charged longer, preferably overnight.
• If the battery has not been used properly or it is used for a number of
years it may eventually fail to hold a full charge. If the battery life
becomes unacceptable then contact your supplier.
