1.0 INTRODUCTION
• The CBW series of scales provide an accurate, fast and versatile
series of general purpose weighing scales with counting, %
weighing and check-weighing functions.
• There are 2 series of scales - CBW scales which use kilograms
as the default unit and the CBWa range of scales have
changeable units from pounds to kilograms. The scales in these
series share the same functions except the CBWa series have
the ability to change the weighing units.
• There are 6 models in each series with capacities up to 45 kg /
100 lb.
• These all have stainless steel weighing platforms on an ABS base
assembly.
• All scales have sealed keypads with colour coded membrane
switches and the displays are large easy to read liquid crystal
type displays (LCD). The LCD’s are supplied with a backlight.
•
The scales include automatic zero tracking, audible alarm for preset weights, automatic tare, an accumulation facility that allows
the count to be stored and recalled as an accumulated total and
bi-directional RS-232 interface for communicating with a PC or
printer.

LOCATING THE SCALE
•
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.
INSTALLATION OF CBW SERIES
• The CBW 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.
• Attach the power supply cable to the connector on the bottom of
the scale. Plug in the power supply module. The power switch is
located on the base on the right side of the scale.
• The scale will first display the model number (CBW 30- where 30
denotes the capacity of the scale in kg), followed by the revision
numbers (1.2-2.03 where 1.2 is the current hardware revision
number of the main circuit board and 2.03 is the current software
revision number). A self-test is followed next. At the end of the
self-test it will display “ZERO”, if the zero condition has been
achieved. A stable symbol and “GROSS” indicators are also
displayed.

5.0 DISPLAYS
The LCD display will show a value and a unit to the right of the digits.
Other labels are TARE, GROSS, ZERO,
/ O (Stable) and
(Low battery).
6.0 OPERATION
6.1
ZEROING THE DISPLAY
• You can press the [Zero/Enter] key at any time to set the zero
point from which all other weighing and counting is measured.
This will usually be necessary when the platform is empty. When
the zero point is obtained the display will show the indicator for
“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 [Zero/Enter] key to re-zero
the scale if small amounts of weight are still shown when the
platform is empty.
© Adam Equipment Company 2007

6.2
TARING
• Zero the scale by pressing [Zero/Enter]. The zero indicator will
be on. Place a container on the pan and its weight will be
displayed.
• Press [Tare] to tare the scale. The weight that was displayed is
stored as the tare value and it is subtracted from the display,
leaving zero on the display. The "TARE" indicator will be on and
the “GROSS” indicator will be off. As 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 which were
removed. The “ZERO”- indicator will also be on because the
platform is back to the same condition it was when [Zero/Enter]
was last pressed.
6.3
WEIGHING A SAMPLE
To determine the weight of a sample, first tare an empty container if
used, then place the sample in the container. The display will show the
weight and the units of weight currently in use.
6.4
PERCENT WEIGHING
• The scale will allow a sample weight to be shown as 100%. Then
any other weight placed on the scale will be displayed as a
percentage of the original sample. For example is 350g is placed
on the scale and the [%] key is pressed the display will show
100.00%. Remove the 350g weight and place a 300g weight on
the scale. The display will show 85.71% as 300g is 85.71% of
350g.
NOTE: The scale may jump by large numbers unexpectedly if small weights
are used to set the 100% level. For example, if only 23.5g is placed on a scale
with 0.5g increments and the scale is set to 100%, the display will show
100.00%, however a small change of weight will cause the display to jump to
102.13% as one scale division (0.5g) increase to 24.0g will be equivalent to an
increase of 2.13%.
• Pressing [Func] will return the scale to weighing.

6.5
PARTS COUNTING
• Before beginning, tare the weight of any container that will be
used, leaving the empty container on the scale.
• For CBW- 6H /12aH, place the sample first and then press the
[Func] key. For all other models first press the [Func] key to
begin. The scale will show "P 10" asking for a sample size of 10
parts. Change the sample size by pressing the [Tare/Ï] key.
The display will cycle through the options: 10, 20, 50, 100, 200
and back to 10.
• Place the number of samples on the scale. The number should
match the options for parts counting, i.e., 10, 20, 50, 100 or 200
pieces.
• Press the [Zero/Enter] key when the number matches the
number of parts used for the sample. As more weight is added,
the display will show the number of parts (pcs).
• Press the [%] key to display unit weight (g/pcs or lb/pcs), Total
weight (kg or lb) or the count (pcs).
• Press [Func] to return to normal weighing.
• ‘lb’ will be shown on the CBWa scales when weighing unit is set
to pounds.
6.6
CHECK-WEIGHING
Check-weighing is a procedure to cause an alarm to sound when the
weight on the scale meets or exceeds the values stored in memory.
The memory holds values for a high limit and a low limit. Either or both
the limits can be used.
NOTE: The alarm can be set to OFF (See the section 7.7 on
Parameter). In this case the display will indicate whenever the weight is
within or exceeds the limits by showing ‘OK’, ‘HI’ or ‘LO’.
© Adam Equipment Company 2007

6.6.1 Setting up Check-weighing while weighing
• Press [Limit]. It will show the current High Limit with the left most
digit flashing and the HI symbol on the left of the display.
• To select the digit to be changed press [Limit/Î] or [%/Í]. Use
[Tare/Ï] to increment the flashing digit. When the desired value
is shown press [Zero/Enter] to accept the value. If you want to
reset the value to zero, press the [Func/C] key to clear the value.
• After pressing [Zero/Enter] the display will then show the Low
Limit, the “LO” symbol will be on to the left side of the display.
Enter the low limit in the same way the high limit was entered.
• The limits are displayed in Kg.
• Pressing the [Zero/Enter] key will return the scale to weighing,
with the Check-weighing function enabled.
• When a weight is placed on the scale the arrows will show
whether the weight is above or below the limits and the beeper
will sound as described below.
BOTH LIMITS SET The display will show OK and the beeper will sound
when the weight is between the limits.
LOW LIMIT SET
HIGH LIMIT is set to zero.
The display will show OK and the beeper will sound
when the weight is less than the Low Limit. Above
the Low Limit the display will show HI and the beeper
will be off.
HIGH LIMIT SET
LOW LIMIT is set to zero.
The display will show LO and the beeper will be off
when the weight is less than the High Limit. Above
the High Limit the display will show OK and the
beeper will be on.
BOTH LIMITS SET The beeper will never sound and the display will show
LOW IS SET
LO if the weight is less that the Low Limit and HI if the
GREATER THAN
weight is greater than the Low Limit.

6.6.2 Setting up Checkweighing while Parts Counting
• Checkweighing facility can be set up for Parts Counting by
entering values as Low and High Limits to be keyed in by the
user. The limits are displayed in PCS.
• Press [Func] to enter the Parts Counting mode. Press
[Zero/Enter] to fix a sample size. Press [Limit] and enter the
numeric values for high and low limits following the same
procedure as stated in the earlier section.
NOTE:
• The weight must be greater than 20 scale divisions for the checkweighing to operate.
• To disable the Checkweighing function, enter zero into both limits
by pressing [Limit/Î] to recall the current settings.
• When the current limits are shown, press [Func/C] to clear the
settings and then press [Zero/Enter] to store the zero values.
6.7
ACCUMULATED TOTAL
• The scale can be set to accumulate when a weight is added to the
scale automatically or manually by pressing [Print].
• See Section 7.3 on PARAMETERS for details. The accumulation
function is only available when weighing. It is disabled during
percent weighing or parts counting.
• The accumulated weights will be stored in the master unit of the
scale, i.e. kg or lbs.
• If at any time the weighing units are changed, the accumulated
data will be lost.
© Adam Equipment Company 2007
12
6.8
MANUAL ACCUMULATION
• When the scale is set to manual accumulation the weight
displayed will be stored in memory when the [Print] key is
pressed and the weight is stable.
• The display will show "ACC 1" and then the total in memory for 2
seconds before returning to normal. The weight will be output to
a printer or PC.
• Remove the weight, allowing the scale to return to zero and put a
second weight on. Press [Print], the display will show "ACC 2"
and then show the new total.
• Continue until all weights have been added.
• To view the total in memory press the [Print] key when the scale
is at zero. The display will show the total number of items "ACC
xx" and the total weight before returning to zero. The total will also
be printed via the RS-232 interface.
• To erase the memory, press [Print] to view the totals and then
press the [Func/C] key to clear the memory.
© Adam Equipment Company 2007
13
6.9
AUTOMATIC ACCUMULATION
• When the scale has been set to Automatic Accumulation the
value is stored in memory automatically.
• Add a weight to the scale. The beeper will sound when the scale
is stable indicating the value is accepted. Remove the weight.
• The display will show "ACC 1" and then the total in the memory
before it returns to zero. Adding a 2nd weight will repeat the
process.
• While the weight is on the scale, press the [Print] key to show the
values immediately- first the accumulation number "ACC x" and
then the total will be shown. In this case the scale will not show
the value when the weight is removed.
• In all cases the scale must return to zero or a negative number
before another sample can be added to the memory.
• More products can be added and [Print] be pressed again. This
can continue for up to 99 entries till the capacity of display is
exceeded.
7.0
PARAMETERS
The parameters can be chosen by the user to set the scale to:
• Display the weight in other increments of weight to minimise the
affects of vibration, wind or other environmental conditions.
• Control the back light on the display. It may be necessary to turn
the backlight off to maximise battery life.
• Set the Accumulation to Automatic, manual or set the RS-232
interface to continuously print the weight.
• To enable the accumulation when [Print] is pressed or to disable
it.

CBWa Scales only:
The CBWa scales can change units from kilograms to grams, pounds or pounds/ounces
immediately if they are enabled as in the step above. This also allows the scales to be
calibrated in either kilograms or pounds and all memory accumulations are in either
kilograms or pounds as last selected.
When the scales are set to display in other units the accumulation function is
still keeping the weight in kilograms (or pounds for the CBWa series) in
memory and will use the base weighing unit when printing over the RS-232
interface.
7.7
SETTING OF THE CHECK WEIGHING ALARM
• The display will show “bEEP x” where “x” is a digit from 0 to 2.

8.0 BATTERY OPERATION
• The scales can be operated from the battery, if desired. The
battery life is approximately 70 hours.
• When the battery needs charging a symbol on the display will turn
on. The battery should be charged when 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 attach the power supply module to
the scale and plug in. The scale does not need to be turned on.
• The battery should be charged for 12 hours for full capacity.
• To the left of the display is a 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
being charged. If it is red it is nearly discharged and yellow
indicates the battery is increasing the charge level. Continue to
charge overnight for a complete re-charge.
• As the battery is used over the years it may fail to hold a full
charge. If the battery life becomes unacceptable then contact your
distributor or Adam Equipment.

10.0 CALIBRATION
• The CBW scales are calibrated using metric weights and the
CBWa scales can be calibrated using either metric or pound
weights, depending on the weighing unit in use before calibration.
• To start calibration turn the scale off and then turn it on again.
Press the [Tare] and [%] keys together once, during the initial
counting from 9 to 0 on the display.
• The display will show "UnLoAd" for all models except CBW 6H
/12aH. Remove all weight from the pan and then press the
[Zero/Enter] key when the scale is stable. Note: For CBW 6H/
12aH, it will show "LoAd 0" and when the scale is stable, it will ask
for the calibration mass to be placed on the platform. For all other
models, the display will show “AdLoAd”. Place the suggested
calibration mass on the pan. It is best to use a weight close to the
full capacity of the scale.
• Press the [Zero/Enter] key. The display will then show the last
mass used. If this is same as the mass on the pan then it can be
used or a different value can be entered.
• To use this value, press the [Zero/Enter] key when the stable
indicator is on.
• If a different value is desired, enter the value using the [►] arrow
key to select the flashing digit and the [▲] to increment the
flashing digit. If value is correct, press the [Zero/Enter] key to
accept when the stable indicator is on.
• Remove the calibration weight as the scale counts back from 9 to
0.
• If an error message “FAIL H” or “FAIL L” is shown during calibration,
re-check the calibration and repeat, if necessary. If the error
cannot be corrected contact your dealer or Adam Equipment for
advice.
CBWa Scales only:
CBWa scales will also have the Lb or Kg (or g) 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. If the scale was
weighing in kilograms then metric weights will be requested.
