INTRODUCTION
• The GBK/GFK scales provides an accurate, fast and versatile general
purpose weighing scales with parts counting, percent weighing and
check-weighing functions.
• The GBK/GFK has LEDs to indicate when a weight is below the low limit,
between the limits or above the high limit next to the display. These
can work in conjunction with an audible alarm for check weighing as
well as LCD showing LO, OK and HI.
• The GBK/GFK is supplied with a RS-232 bi-directional interface and real
time clock (RTC).
• The GBK/GFK has a sealed keypad with colour coded membrane
switches and a large easy to read liquid crystal type display (LCD)
supplied with a backlight.
• Includes automatic zero tracking, semi-automatic tare and
accumulation facility that allows the weight to be stored and recalled as
an accumulated total.
• OIML Approved models, GBK/GFK-M, do not allow pounds units, have
calibration controlled by jumpers or passcodes and other limitations as
noted in the manual.

INSTALLATION
3.1.
UNPACKING
The GBK/GFK scales have already been adjusted to work with a platform and have
been configured for this application.
The platform and indicator have been
calibrated as a pair and must be used together .
3.2.
LOCATING
•
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.

3.3
SETTING UP THE SCALES
• The pillar is attached to the base using a bracket that must be attached
to the base frame first using the 4 bolts supplied. The pillar is secured
to the bracket using 2 sets of screws. The cable from the base to the
indicator module is run through the tube and taken out through the
plastic support at the top. Excess cable can be stored within the tube.
• The GBK/GFK Series comes with a stainless steel platform packed
separately. Place the platform in the base.
• Level the scale by adjusting the four feet. If the scale rocks re-adjust the
feet.
• Attach the indicator module to the pillar by sliding it over the bracket
with the flanges engaged in the groves on the base. Attach the cable
from the base to the connector on the rear of the indicator.
• Attach the power to the indicator. Press the [On/Off] key. The software
revision number will be displayed followed by a self-test showing all
digits before the zero is displayed along with the unit of weight that was
selected last.
• If the scale is an approved version, GBK/GFK..M, and the Calibration
Counter has been enabled (see section 6) the current values will be
displayed. These values should match the values marked on the scale
at the time of verification, if it has been verified.

The LED can be set to display as a bar, increasing from Low to OK to High, a single
spot increasing from Low, OK to High, or as a single bar that changes colour as the
weight progresses from Low to OK to High.
6.
CALIBRATION COUNTER FOR APPROVED SCALES
The approved (GBK/GFK-M Model) scales have the ability to control access to the
calibration or metrology parameters using a passcode to limit access.
The
requirements for doing this stipulate the code should be apparent and recorded in a
suitable location on the scale.
In this way if the record of the Calibration or Parameter counters do not agree with
recorded settings the responsible person inspecting the scale can take appropriate
action.
14 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
The Counters are incremented any time the calibration section or the Factory
parameters section have been modified.
At power on, the display will show the current software revision number followed
by the message of the Calibration Count “[AL[nt” then a number i.e. “123”. The
number from the counter memory. Then the Parameter Counter message of
“PAr[nt” and probably a different number, i.e. “234”. The counters cannot be
reset to 0, they will increment until the display can no longer hold the values. (1 to
999999). It is expected we will never have more than 1 million calibrations in the
life of the machine.
Each display is held for 1-2 seconds.
The scale will then continue to do the display test and go to normal weighing.
If during the time the counting displays are shown, the user presses the [Tare] key,
the user will be given a message to enter the passcode necessary to calibrate the
scale, “P - - - - “ Enter the code “P0000” to Enter calibration or “P1000” to enter
the parameters, followed by pressing the [Tare] key.
The Calibration access will allow user calibration (See section 15.1) and the
parameter code will allow access to the following parameters. (see section 15.2).
“F4 Int”

BATTERY
• The scales can be operated from the rechargeable battery, if desired.
The GBK/GFK scales have up to 70 hours battery life before needing to
be recharged if the backlight is disabled and the battery is fully charged.
• 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 a period of time after which it will automatically switch off
to protect the battery.
• To charge the battery, simply plug into the mains power supply. The
scale does not need to be turned on.
• The battery should be charged for 12 hours for full capacity.
• To the right 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.
8.
BACKLIGHT
The backlight for the LCD can be set by the user to always off, always on or
automatic (on only when the scale is in use or a key is pressed). See setting of the
parameter “S2 bL” in section 13.3.
9.
AUTO POWER OFF
The auto power off can be set by the user to disable the feature or to a pre-set time
interval. See setting of the parameter “S3 AoF “ in section 13.3.

OPERATION
10.1.
ZEROING
• 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 when the platform is empty. When the zero point is obtained
the display will show the zero indicator.
• 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 amount of weight is
still shown when the platform is empty.
10.2.
TARING
10.2.1
MANUAL TARE
• Zero the scale by pressing [Zero]. The zero indicator will be on. Place a
container on the platform and its weight will be displayed.
• Press [Tare] when the reading is stable. The weight that was displayed
is stored as the tare value and it is subtracted from the display, leaving
zero on the display. The stable and Net indicator 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
17 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
added to the first one. Again only the weight that is added after taring
will be displayed.
NOTE:
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
as the platform is back to the same condition it was when [Zero] was pressed last.
Press [Tare] or [Zero] to remove the tare value and display zero. The Net indicator
will disappear.
10.2.2
PRESET TARE (NOT AVAILABLE ON APPROVED SCALES)
When the scale is at zero with no weight on the platform it is possible to enter a
preset tare.
• Zero the scale by pressing [Zero]. The zero indicator will be on.
• Enter a value using the numeric keys.
• Press [Tare] to tare the scale. The value that was entered is stored as
the tare value and it is subtracted from the display, leaving a negative
number on the display.
18 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
10.3.
WEIGHING
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 unit of weight currently in use.
To change the weighing unit press the [Unit] key. The only alternative
weighing unit is pounds. This can be enabled by the user in the parameters
section. See section 13.3.
10.4.
PARTS COUNTING
The scale can be used to count parts based on the average weight of a sample
weighed. When more parts are added the total number of parts are displayed.
• If a container is to be used, place this container on the platform before
entering parts counting and press [Tare].
• Press [Cnt] to enter the Parts Counting mode. The display will show the
last sample size used. For example, “10 Pcs”.
19 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
• Either place 10 parts on the platform for determining the average piece
weight or use a different number of parts. For example, place 20 parts on
the platform, press [CE] to clear the last values and then enter the value
20 using the numeric keypad.
• Press [Cnt] to weigh the samples and determine an average piece
weight.
• If the parts are too light to measure accurately, the count may become
faulty. It is suggested that the samples to be weighed should each weigh
more than the resolution of the scale.
• After the sample has been weighed the scale will count any other parts
added by applying the average piece weight to the weight of the parts to
be counted.
• The [Tare] key works normally during this time, so it is possible to tare
the display with a container on the platform or to enter a preset tare
value as described in section 10.2.2.
• During parts counting the display can be changed to show the net
weight, unit weight and number of parts by each time pressing the
[Func] key.
20 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
• To count a different sample quantity, press the [Count] key. The display
will show the last used sample size. Either use this sample size with a
different part or enter a new sample size as above.
• To return to weighing, press [Unit] when “XX pcs” is displayed.
21 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
10.5.
CHECK-WEIGHING
Check-weighing is a procedure to display an indicator or sound an alarm when
the weight on the platform meets or exceeds the values stored in the
memory. The memory holds values for a high limit and a low limit. Either or
both the limits can be set by the user.
NOTE:
1. The alarm and the LED bargraph can each be set to OFF (See section 13.1).
The LCD display will indicate whenever the weight is within or exceeds the
limits by showing ‘OK’, ‘HI’ or ‘LO’.
Mass on the platform is above the high limit
Mass is between the limits
Mass is below the low limit
2. The limits can be locked by the manager. A Limit Password must be used to
change the limits or recall other limits from memory.
3. If Limit Password is enabled then enter the password which will allow you
to change the limits or the operation of the beeper or bargraph.
22 | P a g e

10.5.1
SETTING UP WHILE WEIGHING
• Press the [Low Limit] key. It will show the current low limit. The “LO”
symbol will appear on the display.
• Press the [CE] key to clear the old value and then enter the new low
limit using the numeric keys. The decimal point is fixed at the position

NOTE:
1. If the recalled limit is for parts counting, the display will show the last sample
value used, ready for a new sample to be counted.
2. If the recalled unit is a percent weighing limit, the display will show the last
sample value used, ready for a new sample to be weighed.
3. If the memory location was empty the scale will return to weighing.
10.7.
PERCENT WEIGHING
The scale can be set to perform percent weighing. See Section 13.1.
The scale will use a mass on the platform as the 100% reference weight. If the
platform is empty (or the scale is tared) then the user can input a reference weight
using the keypad.
•
If using a reference weight (or object) as your 100% reference, add the
weight to the to the platform.
• Press [Func]. The first option is “FUnC 1”, press the [Func] key 3 more times to
display “FUnC 4”.
• Press the [Tare] key. “F4 PCt” will be displayed.
26 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
• Press [Tare] again to enter percent weighing. The scale will set the sample
mass on the platform as 100% reference weight.
NOTE: If there is no reference weight on the platform and percent weighing
function is entered, pressing [Tare] again will return the indicator to normal
weighing.
• Remove the sample weight. Then any other weight placed on the scale will be
displayed as a percentage of the original sample. For example, if 3500g is
placed on the scale and percent weighing is selected, the display will show
100.00%. Remove the 3500g weight and place a 3000g weight. The display will
show 85.7% as 3000g is 85.7% of 3500g.
• The number of decimal points will depend on the weight used. A smaller
weight will show only “100%” while a larger weight might show “100.00%”.
• If the scale was showing zero weight before entering this function, then the
user must manually enter the weight to be set as 100%. When “F4 PCT” is
displayed, enter the weight to be used for the 100% reference, then press
[Tare] to accept the reference weight. The display will show “0.00 %”.
27 | P a g e
© Adam Equipment Company 2010
• If the scale shows “x x . x x %”, which is the last weight used as a reference,
press [CE] to clear and use the numeric keypad to enter a new value. Press
[Tare] to accept the new reference weight.
• The weight entered must be greater than 50 scale divisions. ]
• Press [Unit] to return to normal weighing.
NOTE:
The display may jump by large numbers unexpectedly if small weights are used to
set as 100% reference. The scale checks if the weight is too small and will show

ANIMAL (DYNAMIC) WEIGHING
The scale can be set to animal (dynamic) weighing for weighing any items that are
unstable or may move. . See Section 13.4.
The scale will use a special filter to minimise the effects of any movement on the
platform.
• Press [Func]. The first option is “FUnC 1”, press the [Func] key 3 more times to
display “Func 4”.
• Press the [Tare] key. “F4 PCt” will be displayed. Press the [Func] key to
advance to the second function, “F4 AnL”, Animal weighing.
• Press [Tare] to enter the animal weighing function.
• To use the Animal Weighing function it is necessary to set the amount of
filtering required for the animals to be weighed. More active animals will
require a higher level of filtering to give a stable result. The display will show
“Filt x” where x is a value from 1 to 5. The higher the value the greater the
amount of filter will be. To increment the value shown press the [Func] key
then press the [Tare] key to accept it.
• The display will flash “Ani “ 2 times then show the current weight, 0.00. The
scale is now ready to weigh.

or blankets onto the platform and press the [Tare] key to zero the display.
The scale may go into the animal weighing procedure when the items are
placed on the scale but will return to showing zero when the [Tare] key is
pressed.
• Place the animal to be weighed on the platform. The display will show “Ani”
until a stable weight is determined. The time it takes for the stable value will
depend upon the setting of the filter parameter in the first step.
• When a stable reading is found, the display will show this value, and the
display will be locked until the [Unit] key is pressed. The display will show the
“Hold” symbol while the display is locked. Remove the animal, the display will
hold the weight value.
• To weigh a second animal press the [Tare] key if necessary to zero the
display, and place the next animal on the scale. It is also possible to simply
place the next animal on the scale without clearing the last value first. The
scale will detect the new weight and hold it as before.

CALIBRATION
• The GBK/GFK scales can be calibrated using kilogram weights or using
pounds weights, depending on the weighing unit selected at the time of
calibration.
• To start the calibration, either get into the calibration section through
the Scale Settings (“FUnC 3”- see Section 13.3) or turn the scale off and
switch on again then press [Tare] during the self-test. Enter code
number 0000 and press [Tare]. This will take you directly to the
calibration section.
• The display will show "UnLoAd"
• Remove all weight from the platform and then press the [Tare] key
when the display is stable. After the Zero point is set, the display will
show “Ld xx”. Place the suggested calibration mass on the platform. It is
best to use a weight close to the full capacity of the scale. If the mass is
different from the displayed value, enter the value of the mass in whole
numbers. The kg or the lb symbol will be on to show the active unit.
• Press the [Tare] key when the stable indicator is on.
• The scale will calibrate to the mass. When complete, it will display
“PASS” and then either display “S8 CAL” (if entered the calibration
section through the Scale Settings as per section 13.3) or return to
normal weighing (if entered directly). Remove the calibration mass.
• If an error message “FAIL H” or “FAIL L” is shown, re-check the calibration
and repeat. If the error cannot be corrected contact your supplier.
