operated with a supply voltage of 12 V to max. 26 V.
! The power connection must be made in accordance with the regulations applicable in
your country.
Safety requirements for operation of the evaluation electronics connected to a safety
extra-low voltage (SELV) source:
The external power supply must meet the requirements of EN 61010- 1, Section 6,
“Protection Against Shock Current.” Please also refer to the specifications for classification
of electrically operated equipment in EN 61010-1.
Safety Precautions:
The power supply must be rated to safety extra low voltage (SELV) or grounded (earthed)
safety extra low voltage (SELV-E). An AC adapter rated to Class 2 can be plugged into
any wall outlet with no additional safety precautions required. The ground terminal is
connected to the weigh cell housing. The electronics module must be grounded for
operation. The data interface is also electrically connected (grounded) to the weigh cell
housing.
EMC requirements:
The connector is designed for DC connections between equipment/systems that are not
connected to a DC power supply. The cable length must not exceed 3 m.
To use an external power supply, the power source must meet the requirements of
EN61326. The following standards apply:

Serial Printer Port
In addition to Sartorius printers (such as
the YDO03-0CE), you also have the
choice of connecting a remote display
or an external checkweighing display to
the printer port.
You can configure the data output
functions in the Setup menu to meet
your various requirements, including
ISO | GLP requirements.
ISO: International Organization
for Standardization
GLP: Good Laboratory Practice
You can have printouts generated
automatically, or by pressing r;
generation can be dependent on or
independent of the stability or time
parameters.
See the section on “Data Output
Functions” in the chapter entitled
“Operating the Balance” for a detailed
description.
Serial Communications Port
You can connect a PC, a remote display,
an external checkweighing display
or a standard (non-verifiable) printer
to this port.
Error Codes
If you press a key that has no function,
or which is blocked at a certain point in
an application program, this error is
indicated as follows:
– a double beep is sounded as an acoustic
signal if the key has no function
– a double beep is sounded and the
message “No function” is displayed in
the text line if the key function is not
available at that time
The response to an operator error
is identical in all operating modes.
See the chapter entitled “Error Codes”
for a detailed description.
Storing Settings
Saving Parameter Settings
The settings configured remain stored
in the balance’s non-volatile memory.
In addition, you can reload the factory
settings.
Saving Settings
Under “Setup > Device parameters >
password” you can assign passwords in
order to block access to:
– Balance | scale functions
– Device parameters
– Application parameters
– Printout
– Factory settings
! When using the balance in legal
metrology (legal-for-trade application),
make sure the requirements applicable
to the peripherals in question are met.
Request messages are sent via the
interface to initiate functions in the
weighing cell and in the display and
control unit. Some of the functions
generate response messages.
See the section on “Data Output
Functions” in the chapter entitled
“Operating the Balance” for a detailed
description.

General Instructions for
Analytical Weighing with
Weigh Cells
Handling of Samples and Containers
Samples should be acclimatized to the
temperature of the weigh cell to avoid
negative effects on results, such as
measurement errors and fluctuations
caused by air buoyancy resulting from
convection currents across the surface
of the sample.
These negative effects increase as
the volume and/or surface area of the
sample increases. For this reason, the
size of the container should be appropriate for the sample.
Samples and containers should not be
touched by the operator’s hands, as the
hygroscopic effect of fingerprints and
the effect of the hand’s temperature
can influence the measurement results.
Samples must be applied very carefully,
whether manually (using a forceps) or
automatically (by a robot or filling
system).
When designing a draft shield device,
steps must be taken to keep the
increase in temperature within the
weighing chamber to a minimum
(e.g., using a bypass).
40
Weighing Electrostatically Charged
Samples or Containers
If a sample or container is electrostatically
charged, significant errors may result during weighing. Materials with low conductivity, such as glass, plastic or filters, are
particularly susceptible to static electricity
(resulting, e.g., from friction) because the
weighing pan can discharge the static electricity only very slowly.
The result is a force action between the
charge on the sample and the permanently
installed parts of the weigh cell. This
causes the readout to fluctuate constantly.
Ionization can be applied to make the air
around the sample conductive. This allows
the charge to be compensated through
the air, or discharged through the ground
(grounded).
Aside from purely mechanical solutions
(e.g., using a special weighing pan to
shield the system), bombarding the sample
with ions of opposing polarity to neutralize the surface charge is one of the most
effective methods for eliminating static
electricity. Sartorius can provide ionization
devices for installation in weighing
systems.
The area around the weigh cell can also
contain charges that negatively affect the
accuracy of weighing results. Appropriate
steps taken in the design of a draft
shield device can counteract such effects.
Weighing Magnetic or Magnetizable
Samples
For technical reasons, the use of magnetizable materials in the manufacture of
weigh cells is unavoidable, primarily
because the operating principle of highresolution weigh cells is based on compensation of the load through magnetic
forces.
When weighing magnetic or magnetizable
samples or containers, interaction between
the sample or container and certain parts
inside the weigh cell may have a distorting
effect on the weighing results.
To keep such effects to a minimum,
we recommend increasing the distance
between the sample/container and the
weighing system using a non-magnetic
material. The force is reduced quadratically
with the increase in distance.
Magnetizable or magnetized samples and
the weigh cell itself interact with magnetic
fields and magnetizable or magnetized
parts in the area surrounding the weighing
system. The system can be shielded from
external magnetic fields to some extent
using (soft magnetic) plates.
Preparation for Operation

Calibration, Adjustment, Linearization
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 of the
difference to an allowable level within
maximum permissible error limits.
Linearization is the procedure used
to eliminate the deviation from weight
readout plotted on the balance’s ideal
characteristic calibration curve and the
actual weight readout. In other words,
linearization reduces the amount of
error of a weight displayed to its maximum permissible error limits. The ideal
characteristic curve is a straight line
plotted between zero load and maximum load.
Features
You can configure whether the
calibration mode
– will be activated according to the
specific setting (external/internal) or
– can be selected by the user after
pressing the Cal soft key:
Selection mode.
Your balance can be calibrated externally: (Balance menu: CAL key function;
menu item Ext. cal./adj.;
factory-def. wt. or
Ext. cal./adj.;
user-defined wt.;
or internally: (Internal
cal./adjustment).
Adjustment can be performed
– automatically following calibration:
Cal., then auto
adjust. or
– if desired, the adjustment operation can
be started manually after calibration:
Cal., then manual
adjust
Linearization is performed if you
have selected Internal
linearization in the Setup
menu or you have set this using the
Selection mode.
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 On and reset
application and On
without resetting app.
You can have the calibration/adjustment results documented in an
ISO/GLP-compliant printout.

on Verified Models
If the equipment has been disconnected
from power, please observe the following:
– Directly after switching the equipment
on and before performing any weighing
operations, calibrate/ adjust the weigh
cell,
– perform calibration adjustment again
after 30 minutes, and
– perform calibration adjustment again
after 4 hours.
The balance should be calibrated/
adjusted at least once a day.
– When you turn on the balance after
it has been disconnected from power
(only on verified balance)
When these requirements are met,
C is displayed in the line for measured
values.
If the balance is not operated and
the load is not changed, internal

Repeatability Test (reproTEST)
Definition
Repeatability 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
The “reproTEST” function automatically
determines the repeatability (also called
“reproducibility”) 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.

Weighing in Percent B
Purpose
This application allows you to obtain
weight readouts in percent that are in
proportion to a reference weight.
Alternatively, you can have the value
displayed as a difference in percent
between the weight on the balance and
the reference weight, or as a special
ratio1 or ratio2.
You can use this application in
combination with any program chosen
from Application 2 (checkweighing,
time-controlled functions) and one
from Application 3 (totalizing, formulation, statistics) as well as with the extra
functions.

Preparation
To calculate a value in percent, the reference percentage must be known.
This value can be entered into the weighing-in-percent program in one of three ways:
– The last reference percentage entered is loaded and displayed when you turn on the
balance. Place the corresponding weight on the weighing platform and initialize the
weighing-in-percent program;
– With automatic initialization switched on (see previous page), the balance goes into the
“weighing in percent” mode when you turn on the power and loads the last reference
percentage entered as well as the corresponding reference weight (Setup: Printout:
Application-defined output: Auto print upon initialization: All values);
– Enter the reference weight using the numeric keys and store it (Wxx% soft key).

Equations Used to Determine Density
Buoyancy:
Rho = (Wa · (Rhofl – LA)) / ((Wa – Wfl) · Corr) + LA
For the buoyancy method, a factor of 0.99983 (factory setting) is used to
allow for the buoyancy caused by the bars of the sample holder of the YDK
01 (LP) Density Determination Kit. This factor is yielded by allowing for this
equation:
buoyancy of bars/wires = 2 · d2 / D2 (Wa – Wfl)
The equation considers the following variables: the number of bars or wires,
the bar/wire diameter of the sample holder, and the inner diameter of the
vessel used.
The correction factor 0.99983 is yielded by 1 – 2 · d2 / D2
where:
2 = number of wires/bars
d = bar diameter (0.7 mm) for YDK01
D = inner diameter of the vessel (76 mm) for YDK01
If you are using different vessels or other density kits, press
the Param. soft key to enter any necessary changes to this calculation
factor.
To determine the density of a solid according to the buoyancy method with
our YDK 01 (LP) Density Determination Kit, make sure to use the beaker with
a 76 mm diameter.
Displacement: Rho = (Wa · (Rhofl – LA)) / (Wfl · Corr) + LA
For the displacement method, a factor of 1.00000 (factory setting) is used to
allow for the buoyancy caused by a wire suspended in the liquid.
If you are using different vessels or other density kits, press
the Param. soft key to enter any necessary changes in this calculation
factor.
The equation considers the following variables: the number of wires or bars,
the wire/bar diameter of the sample holder, and the inner diameter of the
vessel used.
This factor is yielded by: Corr = 1 – χ · d2 / D2

and determine the difference in weight.
There are different procedures available
for this application:
– Collect all data (tare, initial weight, and
backweighing result) for each sample
individually (menu setting “Weighing
sequence: Individual weighing”)
– Save the tare weights and initial
weights for all samples first, then
perform backweighing (menu setting
“Combined weighing”)
– Save the tare weights for all samples
first, then determine the initial weight
of each sample and, finally, perform
backweighing (serial weighing)
Features
– 4 different sequences for measuring the
tare weights, initial sample weights and
the backweights (backweighing result):
– Individual weighing
– Consecutive individual
weighing
– Combined weighing
– Serial weighing
– Choice of weighing sequence by selecting this parameter in the Setup menu
or by pressing the Wg.seq soft key
(if the “Weighing sequence key” option
is set)
– Perform up to 99 backweighing routines on a single sample
– Differential weighing with or without
tare weighing (not necessary for measuring coatings or lamination layers)
– Define the number of decimal places
displayed for calculated results
– Special display page for statistics lets
you define whether lot statistics are
dependent on backweight, loss, or ratio
values
– Press a soft key to view the desired
display page (lots, samples, values or
results)
– To view lot, sample or measured value
data, enter the ID and then press
the corresponding soft key
(Lot/Sample/Values)
– Define whether printer output is
dependent on the processing status
of the sample
– Printout can contain individual values,
backweighed values and statistics
– User-definable printout format
– The configurations for the weighing
sequence and results are saved
separately for each lot
– Define whether autosaving weight
values is dependent on the stability
parameter
– Define whether the minimum load for
autosave is dependent on the display
– List function, with
Display page for lots:

1. Individual Weighing
Tare weight, initial weight and backweight are measured in that order.
3. Combined Weighing
The tare and initial weight, in that
order, of each sample is measured first,
then the backweight of each sample is
measured.

The individual printout is generated
when the r key is pressed while
there is a tare, initial or backweight on
the balance, or when d is pressed
to toggle applications.
You can generate the configured
printout manually after backweighing
if you press the r key while the
display page for the results is shown.
To generate the statistics printout,
press the r key:
– when the display page for statistics
is shown, and
– when the samples with a desired number
of backweighing operations is selected
(for example, statistics on all samples
with 2 backweighing operations).

Preparation
Turn on the balance: press e
1)
Setting can only be changed when
the application is first run and when
the Wg.seq key option is set to
“No”
2)
The last value with the stability
symbol is saved only during initial
sample weighing. Tare and backweights are saved as the “first value
at stability.” This menu option
enables you to perform filling
functions during initial weighing.
3)
To autosave a value between 70
and 130% of the initialization value,
the balance must be unloaded to
below 30% or loaded to above
170% of this initialization value.

Air Buoyancy Correction G
Purpose
This application enables you to correct
weighing errors that occur due to air
buoyancy when you work with weights
of various densities.
You can use this application in
combination with a program chosen
from Application 2 (checkweighing,
time-controlled functions) and one
from Application 3 (totalizing, statistics).
Air buoyancy correction cannot be
combined with the formulation and 2nd
tare memory applications.
The air density value is required for
calculation of the air buoyancy correction factor. Because not every location
has an air density of 1.2 kg/m3, the
density of a particular location can be
determined using the air density
determination routine.
Features
Buoyancy correction:
– Automatic initialization of this
application and loading the density of
a weighed object stored in the nonvolatile memory, RhoW and the air
density RhoA last saved; display of
RhoW in the line for text.
– Automatic start of air buoyancy correction and display of the a symbol for
calculated values, if selected in the
Setup menu (Setup: Auto-start application when power goes on: Yes)
– Input of the density of a sample or
an object using the numeric keys and
by pressing the RhoW soft key.
This activates air buoyancy correction,
if not yet activated.
– Input range for the density of a sample:
0.1 g/cm3 – 22.5 g/cm3.
– Storage of density values (RhoW and
RhoA) in the non-volatile memory.
– Deactivation of air buoyancy correction
by toggling to the “Weighing” mode
(weighing without air buoyancy
correction)
Air Density Determination:
– To determine the air density, use the
special weight set, YSS45, which is
available as an accessory. This weight
set consists of one steel and one
aluminum weight and is available with
the “Weight Specifications” certificate.
The densities of the steel (8.0) and
aluminum references (2.7) are preset
values and cannot be changed.
– Determine the air density by
– entering the density using the
numeric keys
– entering the specifications for
steel/aluminum and weighing the
steel and aluminum weights
(accessory: YSS45)
– If you enter an air density using
the numeric keys, the reference values
(density and weight) for steel and
aluminum are deleted from the display
page “AIR D. PARAMETRS.”
– After the air density has been
determined and saved by pressing the
Start soft key, the reference values
are printed out
– Preset value for air density: 1.2 kg/m3
– Range for entering air density values:
1.0 kg/m3 – 1.4 kg/m3.
– You can activate or deactivate air
density determination in the Setup
menu, thus blocking access to
this program routine.
– The air density is generally determined
in grams as the weight unit.
– If air density determination is deactivated,
the air density RhoA will be displayed
for 2 seconds in the text line when you
press the RhoA soft key.
– After the air density has been
determined, you can save the value,
but this is not required
– You can block storage of the specifications (references) in the Setup menu.
(Setup: Application parameters:
Application 1: Air buoyancy correction:
Change steel/aluminum references)
– The density values on the display page
for reference values are standard,
inalterable values

extra functions.
Features
– Store a weight on the balance in the
second tare memory (without numeric
input)
– Store a numeric value in the second
tare memory (input using the numeric
keys)
– Identify a net value as Net1 when
there is a value stored in the second
tare memory
– You can assign this function to the
fourth or fifth soft key (from the right);
i.e., F4 or F5
The soft key designation for this
function is: PT1/T1
– The container-tare function can be
activated in the Setup menu. Any load
subsequently placed on the scale that
is more than 70% of the tare weight is
automatically recognized as a container
and the scale is tared automatically.
– Automatic printout when a value is
stored or input (see “Configuring the
Balance”)
– Press c to delete the (preset) tare

SQmin Function
Purpose
To display the allowable minimum
sample quantity “SQmin” in accordance
with the United States Pharmacopeia
(USP). According to USP guidelines,
the uncertainty of measurement may
not exeed 0.1 % of the sample quantity
when substances are weighed with the
highest degree of accuracy for volume
determination. This additional function
ensures that weight results lie within
defined tolerance limits corresponding
to the requirements of your quality
assurance system.
Features
– The service technician will determine
the required minimum sample quantity
based on your quality assurance requirements at the location where the balance
is set up. Afterwards, he will store this
value in the balance. This setting cannot
be changed by the user.
Once he has finished programming
the balance, the service technician will
prepare a “Test in Accordance with the
USP” certificate, on which he will record
the measurements and the minimum
sample quantity for the balance. If you
use the SQmin function, you can be sure
that the weight results will correspond
to the specifications on the certificate
and, therefore, USP guidelines.
Preparation
§ Turn on the balance: press e
> The Sartorius logo is displayed
§ Select Extra function (F4) or Extra function (F5) in the Setup menu: press o
§ Select Application parameters: press the q soft key twice,
then press the O soft key once
§ Select Extra function (F4) or Extra function (F5):
press the q soft key repeatedly, then press the O soft key

– This function can be assigned to either
the fourth or fifth soft key from the
right (F4 or F5). The soft key should
then be labeled with SQmin.
– If the minimum sample quantity has not
been reached:
The SQmin soft key will flash inversely.
Weights will be marked with an asterisk
“*” in the printout.
– Header of GLP-complicant records: The
minimum sample quantity entered for
“SQmin” can be printed out in addition.
– The SQmin function can be used only
when the highest resolution for the basic
unit of the balance has been set.

Interfaces
Purpose
The GPC… series balances have two
interfaces that allow weights and other
measured values, calculated values and
parameter settings to be output to
a printer, PC or checkweighing display,
etc. Control commands (for foot switch
functions) and alphanumeric inputs
(such as those from an online bar code
scanner) can also be input in the
balance via the two interfaces.
Features
GPC… series balances have two serial
interface ports:
– Serial printer port (PRINTER –
Serial Out)
– Serial communications port
(PERIPHERALS – Serial I/O)
–
–
The serial printer port has a permanently installed 25-contact D-Sub
female connector (RS-232)
–
The following printers can be connected to this printer port:
– YDP02
– YDP03
– YDP01IS
– YDP01IS Label
– YDP02IS
– YDP02IS Label
– Universal
– YDP04IS
– YDP04IS Label
!
You may need to use an
external power supply to operate
peripheral devices.
– In addition, the following equipment
can be connected to the printer port:
– Remote display
– Hand switch
– Foot switch
– External checkweighing display
– Bar code scanner*
– Keyboard*
* using the YCC01-0024M01 adapter
(see “Accessories”)
–
–
118
The serial communications port has
a 25-contact D-Sub female connector as a standard feature. This connector can be exchanged for either
of the two female connectors below:
– 12-contact round connector
(RS-485 for xBPI; RS-232 for SBI,
xBPI)
– 9-contact D-Sub connector for
direct connection of a PC
Both the 12-contact and the
9-contact female interface connectors are additionally equipped with
a 5-pin male connector to directly
interface an external bar code
scanner or a keyboard.
– The serial communications port can be
used in the following modes:
– SBI
– xBPI (BPI)
– The following equipment can be
connected to this serial communications port:
– Printer not verifiable for legal
metrology in the EU
– PC
– Remote display
– Hand switch
– Foot switch
– External checkweighing display
– T-connector
– Bar code scanner*
– Keyboard*
* if the 25-contact D-Sub female
connector is installed, you will need
to use the YCC01-0024M01 adapter
(see “Accessories”)
– Printouts generated from the application programs or by the configurable
print function can be output to the
serial printer port or to the serial
communications port or to both.
– If you have selected the automatic print
mode, data will be output to the serial
communications port; printouts
generated by the application programs
will then only be output to the serial
printer port.
– In the xBPI mode, the serial
communications port can operate
independently of the serial printer port
(this means you can transfer data from
the balance to a PC and use this PC to
control your balance while generating
printouts via the serial printer port).
– In the SBI mode, you can use ESC
commands from your PC to control the
balance via the serial communications
port.
For printing an individual value on
request, either by pressing the print key
r or by sending an ESC P print
command, the particular menu setting
determines which data port will be
selected for data output.

Configuring Printout Formats
For a number of application programs,
you need to set initialization values.
All values upon initialization or only the
main values can be automatically printed
as soon as you have configured this in
the Setup menu: Auto print
Generating an ISO/GLP Printout
In the Setup menu, you have a choice
of three settings:
– No ISO/GLP printout generated (Off)
– ISO/GLP printout generated only for
calibration/adjustment (Only for
calibration/adjustment)
upon initialization
Weights and calculated values can be
printed as numeric values either with a
preceding data ID code (numeric value
with 22 characters) or without one
(numeric value only 16 characters).
See also the section on Line
format in the chapter entitled
“Data Output Functions”.
– Every printout is an ISO/GLP-compliant
report (Always on)
Auto print checkweighing results:
automatic printout of a weight when
it lies within the preset limits at stability
Auto print with time-controlled functions: automatic printout of weights
after a preset time has elapsed or at
a defined time
Printout of intermediate or final evaluation from the application 3 memory
(totalizing, formulation and statistics);
generate by pressing the MR soft key
You can generate an ISO/GLP printout
always or only for calibration/adjustment or turn off this option.
Generating Printouts Acceptable for
Legal Metrology:
You can configure the Setup menu
of the balance to generate data records
that are acceptable for legal metrology

Serial Communications Port
Purpose
The GPC… balance has a serial communications port (labeled “PERIPHERALS”)
to which you can connect a computer,
a remote display or an external checkweighing display.
Features
Type of interface:
Operating mode:
Standard:
Interface connector:
You can use an on-line computer to
change, start and/or monitor the functions of the balance and the application
programs.
The communications port also provides
data output port lines for the over/under
checkweighing program. This port can
also be used to connect a hand or foot
switch.
! Warning When Using Pre-wired
RS-232 Connecting Cables
RS-232 cables purchased from other
manufacturers often have incorrect pin
assignments for use with Sartorius balances. Be sure to check the pin assignment against the chart before connecting the cable, and disconnect any lines
marked “Internally Connected” (e.g., pin
6). Failure to do so may damage or
even completely ruin your balance
and/or peripheral device.

Synchronization
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.
Handshake
The balance interface (Sartorius Balance
Interface = SBI) has transmit and
receive buffers. You can define the
handshake parameter in the Setup
menu:
– Hardware handshake (CTS/DTR)
– Software handshake (XON, XOFF)
Hardware Handshake
With a 4-wire interface, 1 more
character can be transmitted after CTS
(Clear to Send).
Transmitting Device:
Once XOFF has been received, it prevents
further transmission of characters.
When XON is received, it re-enables the
transmitting device to send data.
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 is almost empty.
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.
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 synchronously with the balance
display or at defined intervals (see application program descriptions and auto print
setting).
When the software handshake is
configured in the Setup menu, the
hardware handshake becomes active
after the software handshake.
Data Output by Print Command
The print command can be transmitted
by pressing r or by a software
command (Esc P).
The data transmission sequence is
as follows:
Automatic Data Output
In the “auto print” operating mode, data
is output to the interface port without an
extra 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 status.

Computer
(receiving
device)
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 r.
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.

Care and Maintenance
Service
Regular servicing by a Sartorius
technician will extend the service life of
your balance and ensure its continued
weighing accuracy. Sartorius can offer
you service contracts, with your choice
of regular maintenance intervals
ranging from 1 month to 2 years.
The frequency of maintenance intervals
depends on the operating conditions
and your tolerance requirements.
Repairs
Repair work must be performed by
trained service technicians. Any attempt
by untrained persons to perform repairs
may lead to hazards for the user.
Cleaning
! Make sure that no dust or liquid enters
To remove the weighing pan and clean:
§ Reach under the shield plate and lift it
together with the weighing pan off the
base to avoid damaging the weighing
system.
! Make sure that no dust or liquid enters
the balance housing
§ Carefully remove spilled powder from
the weighing chamber using a small car
vacuum cleaner with a mini-hose
attached
§ To remove liquid spills, use blotting
paper
Safety Inspection
If there is any indication that safe
operation of the balance with the AC
adapter is no longer warranted:
§ Turn off the power and disconnect the
power cord from an electrical outlet
(mains supply) immediately
> Lock the AC adapter and power cord
in a secure place to ensure that the
equipment cannot be used during this
time
Safe operation of the balance with the
AC adapter is no longer ensured when:
– there is visible damage to the AC
adapter or power cord
– the AC adapter no longer functions
properly
the balance housing
! Do not use any aggressive cleaning
agents (solvents or similar agents)
§ Unplug the AC adapter from the wall
outlet (mains supply)
§ If you have a data cable connected
to the interface, unplug it from the
balance
§ Carefully remove any sample residue/
spilled powder using a brush or a
hand-held vacuum cleaner
§ Clean the balance using a piece of cloth
which has been wet with a mild detergent
§ Use a commercially available glass
cleaning agent to clean the draft shield
doors
§ After cleaning, wipe down the balance
with a soft, dry cloth
– the AC adapter has been stored for a
relatively long period under unfavorable
conditions
In any of these cases, notify your
nearest Sartorius Service Center or the
International Technical Support Unit
based in Goettingen, Germany.
Maintenance and repair work may only
be performed by service technicians
who are authorized by Sartorius and
who
– have access to the required
maintenance manuals
– have attended the relevant service
training courses
We recommend that the balance
together with the AC adapter be
inspected by a qualified Sartorius
service technician according to the
following checklist:
– Leakage current <0.05 mA measured
by a properly calibrated multimeter
– Insulation resistance >7 megaohms
measured with a constant voltage
of at least 500 V at a 500 kohm load
The duration and number of
measurements should be determined
by a qualified Sartorius service
technician according to the particular
ambient and operational conditions
for the AC adapter. Such inspection
should be performed at least once
a year.
