3.2
LOCATING THE SCALES
•
The scales should not be placed in a location
that will reduce the accuracy.
•
Avoid extremes of temperature. Do not place
in direct sunlight or near air conditioning
vents.
•
Avoid unsuitable tables. The table or floor
must be rigid and not vibrate.
•
Avoid unstable power sources. Do not use
near large users of electricity such as welding
equipment or large motors.
•
Do not place near vibrating machinery.
•
Avoid high humidity that might cause
condensation. Avoid direct contact with water.
Do not spray or immerse the scales in water.
•
Avoid air movement such as from fans or
opening doors. Do not place near open
windows or air-conditioning vents.
•
Keep the scales clean. Do not stack material
on the scales when they are not in use.
SETTING UP THE SCALES
SETTING UP THE LOCAL SCALE
• The CBD Series comes with a stainless steel platform packed
separately.
• Place the platform in the locating holes on the top cover.
• Do not press with excessive force as this could damage the load
cell inside.
• Level the scale by adjusting the four feet. The scale should be

adjusted such that the bubble in the spirit level is in the centre of
the level and the scale is supported by all four feet.
• AC powered scales, attach the power cable to the connector on
the bottom of the scale base. If using the external plug in power
supply module (USA) connect it to the socket on the side.
• The power switch is located at the right side of the scale base.
• The scale will show the model number in the “Weight” display
window (CBD 15, where 15 denotes the maximum capacity of the
scale in Kg) and the current software revision number in the “Unit
Weight” display window .
• Next a self-test is followed. At the end of the self-test, it will
display “zero weight and zero values in all three displays. If the
weight display shows a value it was not possible to set a new
zero during power on.
SETTING UP THE REMOTE SCALE
• The CBD Series can be connected to any size of load cell type
weighing base via the Remote scale port on the right side of the
scale case. Ensure you have the correct base for the scale as
each is matched for calibration.
• Place the remote scale platform in the position where it is to be
used. Level the scale by adjusting the four feet. If fitted with a
spirit level then it should be adjusted such that the bubble is in the
centre.
• Press [Local/Rem] to select the local scale or the remote base
for configuration and operation.

REMOTE SCALE CONNECTION
The cable for the load cell goes to a 9 pin D-subminiature plug connector with
the following connections:
Pin numbers
Pins 1,2
Pins 4,5
Pin 7
Pin 8
Connection
- Excitation (0 V)
+ Excitation (+5 V)
+ Signal
- Signal
(The sense wires connections of a six wire load cell are not used and should
be connected to the respective Excitation pins).
REMOTE SCALE SET UP
The remote scale should set for a realistic resolution with respect to the input
provided by the load cell/s. See Section 12 for details of configuring the
remote scale.
If a single 2 mV / V load cell is fitted and more than 60% of the load cell is
used for full capacity then the high output of >6 mV span makes it possible to
set a high resolution.
If this criterion is met then the remote scale can be set to a high resolution
with a maximum of 1:30,000, i.e. 300 kg x 0.01 kg.
Where more than one load cell is fitted or the total load cell capacity is not
utilised then a reduced resolution should be selected in the remote scale
technical set up. For example, if a system uses four 2 mV / V 1000 kg load
cells for a scale of 1000 kg capacity then the span output at full scale will be
only 2.5 mV.
In this situation the resolution should be reduced to give a good number of
ADC counts per displayed division. ie. Set to 1:5000 or 1000 kg x 0.2 kg.
Setting a high resolution without providing a good input to the remote scale
ADC will not give better accuracy and may make the scale difficult to meet
performance specification.
For best performance ensure a minimum of 0.1 µV / d.

4.0 KEY DESCRIPTIONS
[0-9, •]
These keys are used to manually enter a value for tare weights, unit weight
and sample size. A secondary function is to enter alpha-numeric characters
for PLU descriptions etc.
[CE]
Pressing this key clears the unit weight or an erroneous entry. It also clears
the memory accumulation when the total is displayed.
[M+]
This key is used to add the current count to the accumulator. It also recalls
the memory when pressed with no load on the scale. Up to 99 values or full
capacity of the weight display can be added. Also prints the displayed values
when Auto print is switched off.
[Smpl]
This is used to enter the number of items of a sample.
[PLU]
To store and recall the Product Look Up sample information.
[U. Wt./Units]
This key is used to enter the weight of a sample manually. It will also change
the weighing units when other units are enabled.
[PST]
To set the upper limit for the number of items counted. When this upper limit
is exceeded the scale will sound the beeper. A secondary function is to use it
access the menus for user settings.
[Print]
It is used to print the weighing data.

[Local Rem]
This key is used to select the local or remote scale.
[Tare/Zero]
This key has a combined Zero and Tare function.
If the net weight is below ±2% of maximum then it acts as a Zero key. This
sets the zero point for all subsequent weighing by setting the display to zero.
It also tares the scale by storing the current weight in the memory as a tare
value, subtracting the tare value from the total weight and displaying the
results as a net weight.
5.0 DISPLAYS
The scales have three display windows- Weight, Unit Weight and Count.
5.1
WEIGHT WINDOW
This consists of a 6 digit display to indicate the weight on the scale.
An arrow above the symbols will indicate the following:
Low battery,
Net Weight Display, "Net"
Stability indicator,
“Stable”
Zero indicator, “Zero”
Unit in use indicator, “Lb” or “Kg”
© Adam Equipment Company 2011
Page
10
5.2
UNIT WEIGHT WINDOW
• This display will show the unit weight of a sample. This value is
either entered by the user manually or computed by the scale.
The unit of measure is either gram on all scales with kilogram
selected as weighing unit or in pounds.
• When the scale has determined that there is insufficient number
of samples to accurately determine the count, an arrow will be
shown above "Smpl".
• When the unit weight is not large enough to determine an
accurate count, the arrow will show at "U.Wt".
• When a value has been entered into the memory, the arrow
above "M+" will be on.
• In both the cases the scale continues to operate and the
indicators are to alert the user of a potential problem.
5.3
COUNT WINDOW
• This display will show the number of items on the scale or the
value of the accumulated count. See the OPERATION section.
• An arrow above the symbols will indicate the following:
Checkweighing is active during counting, "Ck Pcs"
Checkweighing is active during weighing,
“Ck Wt”
Checkweighing is active, result is above the High Limit, “High”
Checkweighing is active, result is between the Low and High
Limit, “OK”
Checkweighing is active, result is below the Low Limit, “Low”
• Just under the “Count” display is an LED to indicate the status of
the battery charging. When the scale is plugged into the main
power the internal battery will be charged. If the LED is green,
the battery has a full charge. If it is red, the battery requires
further charging and yellow indicates the battery is being charged.

6.0 OPERATION
• The basic weighing functions are same for both the local and remote
scales. However the number of weighing divisions may be less on the
remote scale dependant on the total capacity of the load cell/s used.
• Each scale (local or remote) has the ability to count parts based on the
current unit weight. This is best obtained by weighing and counting a
sample on the local scale which may have the best sensitivity. Then the
scale can be switched to the remote where large quantities can be
counted.
• Each scale has a separate tare value that can be entered through the
keypad or by placing a weight on the platform and pressing the
[Tare/Zero] key. The tare value for each scale is retained as the user
switches between the remote and local scales.
• Either scale can be used to determine a unit weight.
• When the scale is switched from local to remote, a clear display will be
shown to identify the change and the scales will count based on the
tare and unit weight currently in use for the scale selected. Display for
the change is:
“c h A n g E” ”L o c A L“ and “c h A n g E” ”r e m o t E “
The display will be based on the 7 segment interpretations,
some of the letters are shown later.
• The switch from local scale to remote scale should be possible at any
time by pressing the [Local/Rem] key.
NOTE: For frequently used items, counting is made easier by using PLU
numbers (Product Look Up). Up to 100 PLU’s can be stored and
recalled. Place the item on the pan and enter the appropriate PLU
number using the keypad. The scale will display the Total Weight, Unit
weight and the Count of the item in the respective windows.
See section 6.4

6.1
ZEROING AND TARING THE DISPLAY
The Tare and Zero function are combined into one key. When the
gross weight is within ±2% of the zero, set at power on for either scale
then a new zero is set. If the gross weight is greater than ±2% then the
tare function is performed.
ZEROING
• You can press the [Tare/Zero] key at any time to set the zero
point from which all other weighing and counting is measured.
When the zero point is obtained the Weight display will show the
indicator at “Zero”.
• 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 the [Tare/Zero] to re-zero the
scale if small amounts of weight are still shown even when the
platform is empty.
TARING
Preset tare values can be used with both the local and remote scale. If a new
tare value is to be used, there are two methods for entering a tare value. The
first method uses the weight on the platform and the second uses a value to
be entered by the user.
First method of entering a tare value:
• Zero the scale by pressing the [Tare/Zero] key, if necessary. The arrow
indicator over “Zero” will be on.
• Place a container on the platform, a value for its weight will be
displayed.
• Press the [Tare/Zero] key to tare the scale. The weight that was
displayed is stored as the tare value and that value is subtracted from
the display, leaving zero on the display. The arrow over "Net" will be
on. As product is added only the net 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.
© Adam Equipment Company 2011
Page
13
• 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 zero indicator will also be ON because the platform is back to the
same condition as it was when the [Tare/Zero] key was last pressed.
Second method of entering a tare value:
• This method allows you to enter a value for the tare weight from the
keypad. This is useful if all containers are the same or if the container
is already full but the net weight is required and the weight of the
container is known.
• Remove all weights from the platform, press the [Tare/Zero] key to
zero the display.
• Enter the value for the Tare weight including decimal point using the
keypad, press [Tare/Zero] to store the tare value. The weight will show
a negative value equal to the tare.
• Place the container on the platform.
• The display will then show the weight of the container minus the tare
weight. When the full container is placed on the platform the tare value
will be subtracted from the gross weight displaying only the net weight
of the contents.
• If the value input is not consistent with the increment of the scale, the
scale will round the tare value to the nearest value possible. For
example, if a tare value of 103g is entered into the 60Kg scale with 5g
readability, then the display will show -105g.
• The tare value for each scale is held in memory so that they are not lost
when the active scale changes.

6.2
MEMORY FUNCTIONS
The [M+] key will add the results of a weighing into memory, regardless of
whether the local or remote scale is being used for the weighing.
6.2.1 Manual accumulation
• The values (weight and count) shown on the display can be added to
the values in the accumulator 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 items have been added to the accumulation memory. The values
will be displayed for 2 seconds before returning to normal.
• 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 pressed again.
This can continue for up to 99 entries or until the capacity of the
“Weight” display is exceeded.
• To observe the total value stored, press the [M+] key when the scale is
at zero. The total will be displayed for 2 seconds.
• To clear the memory, first press [M+] to recall the total from the
memory and then press [CE] to clear all values from the memory.
6.2.2 Automatic accumulated total
• The scale can be set to automatically accumulate total 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 Section 7 for enabling Automatic Accumulation

6.3
PARTS COUNTING
The basic function of parts counting is same for both the scales. In order to
do parts counting it is necessary to know the average weight of the items to
be counted. This can be done either 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.
Either of the scales can be used to determine the sample unit weight or for
the manual entry which can be used to count using either of the scales.
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 ensure that the quantity displayed matches the
quantity on the scale before pressing the key. The unit weight can be
adjusted based on a larger sample quantity. This will give greater accuracy
when counting larger sample sizes.
6.3.1 Weighing a sample to determine the Unit Weight
To determine the average weight of the items to be counted place a known
quantity of the items on the scale and then enter the quantity being weighed.
The scale will then divide the total weight by the number of samples and
display the average 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 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
followed by pressing 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 count will
increase.
• 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.

6.3.2 Entering a known Unit Weight
• If the unit weight is already known then it can be entered using the
keypad.
• Enter the value of the unit weight using the numeric keys followed by
pressing the [U. Wt.] key within few seconds while the display is
flashing. If no action is initiated within a few seconds, the "Unit Weight”
display will revert to the previous value, otherwise it will show the new
value that has been entered.
• The sample is then added to the scale and the weight will be displayed
as well as the quantity based upon the unit weight. When weighing in
kilograms the unit weight is shown in grams. When weighing in pounds
the unit weight is shown in pounds.
• After the unit weight has been determined or entered, the scale can be
used for parts counting. The scale may be tared to account for the net
weight as discussed in an 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
weight and the unit weight.
• It is possible to increase the accuracy of the unit weight at any time
during the counting process by manually entering the sample quantity
and then pressing the [Smpl] key. You must ensure that the quantity
displayed matches the quantity on the scale before pressing the key.
The unit weight will be adjusted based upon a larger sample quantity.
This will give greater accuracy when counting larger sample sizes.
6.3.3 Automatic update of unit weight
• The scales will automatically update the unit weight when a sample less
than the initial sample count is added. A beep will be heard when the
value is updated. It is wise to check the quantity is correct when the unit
weight has been updated automatically.
• To lock the unit weight and prevent Auto-update, press [U.Wt.].
• This feature is turned off as soon as the number of items added
exceeds the count used as a sample.

6.3.4 Count pre-set or check-weighing
Check-weighing (or Count Pre-setting) is a procedure to cause an alarm to
sound when the net weight (or the number of items) on the scale meets or
exceeds a number stored in memory. The value to be stored is entered from
the keyboard.
SETTING OF PRESET LIMITS
It is possible to set a high and low limit for either counting or weighing (using
net weight). When the [Pst] key is pressed the user can select either
counting or weighing and then set the lower and upper limit.
For example:
ACTION
Press [Pst]

If using net weight the display will show “Hi WEG”
Press [Print]
“lo cnt” “0.0 2 3 4” “
” The current low count limit is
displayed, press [CE] to clear and change if needed.
If using net weight the display will show “Lo WEG”
Press [Print]
Return to weighing with limits set.
“ if currently in the weighing mode
• Clearing of either or both the limits is allowed. Both limits cleared will
disable the Preset altogether.
• If Preset Weight was selected the first display would show “Hi WEG” and
“Lo WEG”.
• The beeper will work as described in the Beeper Parameter.

6.4
PLU (Product Look Up)
Product Look-Up (PLU) numbers are used to store information about the
commonly used items. The Tare Weight, Description of the product and Unit
Weights for a particular item are recalled by entering the PLU number for
ease of operation.
The scale is capable of storing values for the Tare weight, Description and
Unit Weight for a maximum of up to 100 PLU numbers.
Tare Weight value is required for calculating the Net Weight where a
container is used during weighing. Descriptions are used for sending data
over RS-232 for viewing or printing and Unit Weight is used for parts
counting.
These data should be entered against a particular PLU before the
weighing process starts so that the desired PLU’s can be recalled
during the weighing process. The data can be stored and recalled
manually or by sending data over RS-232 Interface.

6.4.3 RECALLING PLU’S MANUALLY
• To recall the PLU values the user should first select either local or
remote scale as the tare value stored will be specific to the scale
selected.
• Then press the [PLU] key, enter the PLU number (00 – 99) then press
the [PLU] key again to recall the data.
• The display will show the results of the recall for 1 second then return
to weighing with the data in place.
For example:
ACTIONS
DISPLAYS
Press [PLU]
“PLU ”
“ - -“
“
“
Press [2], [7]
“PLU ”
“ 27”
“
“
Press [PLU]
“PLU 27 ”
“M 4 Nut“ “Brass “
After 1 second, it will return to
normal weighing with the Tare
and Unit Weight previously
entered.
“ x x x x“
“xxxx ”
“
x x“
• If the [PLU] key is held down after the numeric entry, it will show the
description as long as the key is pressed.
• In this example the display “PLU 27 ” “M 4 Nut“ “Brass “ shows the
description for 1 second, if no data is stored then it will show
“nO ” “ PLU “ “SAVE “.
• If the tare value is outside the range permitted for the selected scale
(For example, if the local scale is selected whereas the tare value
applies to the remote scale, this would exceed the capacity of the local
scale) the “Weight” display would show zero tare weight.
• If the tare value stored does not match the increment of the selected
scale (For example, storing -1.446 for a scale with d=0.05) then round
the tare weight depending on the scale resolution (For example, in this
case, -1.45 would be used as the tare value).

• If a PLU number is recalled that does not have any information stored
against it, the scale will continue to work with Tare and Unit weight
unchanged.
NOTE: PLU’s can be stored and recalled using RS-232 Interface (see
section 9.1 and 9.2 of this user Manual).

8.0 BATTERY OPERATION
• The scales can be operated from the battery. The battery life is
approximately 70 hours if only the basic unit is used and the
backlight is not used. If the backlight and a second platform is
used the battery life will be reduced.
• When the battery needs charging the arrow above the low battery
symbol under the “Weight” display will turn on. The battery should
be charged as soon as the arrow above the symbol is on. The
scale will still operate for about 10 hours after which it will
automatically switch off to protect the battery.
• To charge the battery simply plug into the mains power. The scale
need not to be turned on.
• The battery should be charged for 12 hours for full capacity.
• Just under the “Count” display is an LED to indicate the status of
battery charging. When the scale is plugged into the main power
the internal battery will be charged. If the LED is green the
battery has a full charge. If it is red, the battery is nearly
discharged and yellow indicates the battery is nearly charged.

PLU ENTRY USING RS-232 INTERFACE
This method enables the user to send the data from a PC program as well as
from the keypad. The most common PLUs can be stored and recalled from
the scale memory. Other PLU data can be stored on a PC, then the
Description (text data), Unit Weight and Tare Weight data can be sent from
the PC for the PLUxx (where xx can be any desired number up to 99). This
can then be used or over-written during operation.
OPERATION:
• Send Tare Weight data to set any tare value to be stored with PLU.
i.e. “T 1.45” <CR>. If no tare is needed then you may send “T 0” to delete
any present tare data.
• Send the Unit Weight to be stored with PLU. i.e. “U0.015” <CR>
• Send PLU text data to be stored with current Tare and U/W values.
i.e. “SPLU27, M4 Nut Brass” <CR>
Any information stored for the Tare Weight, Description and the Unit weight
will be stored in the scale and can be recalled for use in the future.
