Authorized distributors and their employees
can view or download this manual from the
Rice Lake Weighing Systems distributor site
at www.rlws.com.
Operating Modes
The IB Series has four weighing modes:
Normal (weighing) mode
Normal mode is the “production” mode of the
scale. The IB Series displays gross or net weights
as required, using the LCD annunciators
described in Table 1-1 on page 4 to indicate scale
status and the type of weight value displayed.
A checkweighing function can be used with the
normal weighing mode. It is convenient for
classifying weighing items according to whether
they fall within a pre-determined weight range.
The limit setting procedure is described in Section
4.1 on page 7.
Counting mode
The IB Series is capable of parts counting.
Sampling is done by placing the sample on the
scale and designating the number of pieces in the
sample. Four preset sample quanitities are
available.
Entering the counting mode is done through the
front panel keypad, and is explained in detail in
Section 4.0 on page 8.
Calculation Factor mode
In calculation factor mode, the desired index is
memorized, the index for the weight of the item
placed on the scale is calculated and the
calculated value is displayed. This is a convenient
function that allows conversion into various units,
and is explained in detail in Section 5.0 on
page 11.
Percentage mode
In percentage mode, the weight of the sample
selected as the reference is memorized as 100%.
The ratio between the item being measured and
the reference is displayed as a percentage. The
percentage mode is explained in detail in
Section 6.0 on page 13.
1.2
Unpacking and Inspection
Each component of the IB Series system is packed in a
specially designed carton. Remove each component
from its carton, separate the component from its
polystyrene shell assembly, and set the assembly
aside. Inspect the carton interior and inner panels to be
sure that all accessories have been removed. Items
included in this carton include:
• IB Series precision balance scale
• Weighing pan and pan base
• AC adaptor
• Operation manual
• Dust cover
Be sure to replace all packing materials within the
carton set. Store the carton set in a secure area so it is
available whenever shipment of the scale is required.
Introduction
1
Immediately after unpacking, a visual inspection of
the instrument should be conducted. Keep the scale in
an upright position. The shipper and Rice Lake
Weighing Systems should be notified immediately if
a ny d a m a g e o c c u r r e d d u r i n g t r a n s p o r t a t i o n .
Instructions for assessment of damage and further
procedures will then be determined.

Note: Before relocation or transportation, turn the lever to
the edge of the scale for locking mechanism.
The IB Series is a precision instrument and requires
careful handling. Certain precautions must be taken to
ensure weighing accuracy.
• Weighing accuracy may be affected by
installation or extended usage. To ensure
accurate measurement, perform calibration
(as described in Section 2.0).
• Always remove objects from the weigh pan
gently. Shock, especially applied to the sides
of the scale, may result in loss of accuracy.
• If the capacity of the scale is exceeded, an
[o-Err] error message is displayed. Do not
leave an over-capacity load on the pan.

The display will show [unit]. Select weight unit from parameters “1” to “d”, by pressing the T key. The
contents of the parameters are the same as at function [71 uA]. After setting the parameter, press the F key.
Note: Unit will not appear in setting at [1 SEt 1] and [73 ub 0] at the same time. The display will
advance to on 0. In this case, use a reference weight of the weight unit selected in function [71 uA].
4
[on 0] appears. The scale will automatically be set to the zero point. Verify that nothing is placed on the
weighing pan.
5
After the IB performs the zero adjustment, [on FS] automatically appears. Gently place the designated
calibration weight on the center weigh pan (see Table 2-2 below for designated calibration weights).
6
When calibration is complete, the scale automatically returns to the weighing mode.
Table 2-1. Calibration Steps for the IB Series Scale
Notes:
• Press the P key to cancel calibration procedures and return to the weight display.
• If [o-Err] appears on the display, the weight exceeds the scale capacity.
• Standard calibration weight is 1/2 capacity. However, when possible, calibrate using a full capacity weight. See
Table 2-2 below for the unit system capacities.
• If [1-Err] appears on the display, the calibration weight is less than 50% of the standard.
• If [2-Err] appears on the display, an object other than the calibration weight is on the pan, or the display tolerance
(1%) is exceeded.

Notes:
• Tare subtraction procedure is the same for weighing or count modes.
• When tare weighing is performed, product weighing range is reduced by the amount of the tare weight.
weighing range = capacity - tare weight
• A flashing [g] indicator means the scale has not stabilized; when the indicator remains lit, the scale has stabilized.
If weighing is performed in an unstabilized condition, accurate weigh results will not be returned.
• [0-ERR] appears if the load exceeds roughly 101% of the scale capacity. The net weighing range will be reduced by
the tare container from the capacity of the scale.

Count Weighing
Count weighing is used to determine piece count rather than weight. In order for the scale to perform this
function it must know the average piece weight. By loading a specified number of pieces on the pan and entering
that count, the scale calculates and stores in memory the piece weight for that product. This process is referred to
as “sampling.” For example, ten pieces are placed on the scale. When “10” is entered, the unit piece weight is set.
Sampling
10 pieces are placed
on the scale
Average Unit Weight = Piece Weight
Total Weight = 10g
Total Wt. 10 g
= Piece Weight = 1g
Piece Count 10
Next, the product to be weighed is placed on the scale. The scale calculates the piece count by dividing the total
weight by the piece weight.

Comparator Function
The comparator function is convenient for classifying weighing items according to pre-determined weight
ranges. The upper and lower limits of this range are stored in the scale’s memory, and when an item is placed on
the weighing pan it is judged as either acceptable or unacceptable. This function can only be used in weighing
mode.
8.1
Upper and Lower Limit Setting Procedure
To set the upper and lower limits, follow this procedure while referring to Section 8.3 on page 24.

Upper/Lower Limit Input
There are two methods of entering upper and lower limit values. Both methods can be used interchangeably.
1. Actual weight input procedure: samples of upper and lower limit weight are placed on the weighing pan.
2. Numeric input procedure: the F and P keys are used with numeric key entry to record upper and lower
limits into the scale’s memory.
The judgement results are shown by the position of the lit ["] indicator next to OVER/ACCEPT or UNDER.
