Setting up the scale
Please read through these operating instructions carefully and adhere to them at all times. If you discover that materials
are missing or that the wrong ones have been supplied, or if you have any other problems with your scale, please refer to
the dealer and salesperson concerned, or if necessary to the METTLER TOLEDO representative responsible.
1.1 Unpacking and checking contents
Remove the scale and accessories from the packaging and check the delivered items:
•
Terminal and weighing platform with installed weighing plan and level indicator (certified scales only)
•
Open-end wrench for leveling the weighing platform
•
Operating instructions (this document)
•
Special accessories (if any) as per packing list
1.2 Safety and environment
Do not use the scale in hazardous areas (unless it is clearly identified as
being approved for these areas).
For service in wet areas or dusty environments, or if wet cleaning is
necessary, scales with IP 65 ingress protection must be used. But even
these scales must not be used in environments where there is a risk of
corrosion. The scales must never be drenched or immersed in liquid.
If the power cord is damaged, the scale must no longer be operated.
Therefore check the cable regularly and ensure that a free space of about 3
cm is left at the rear of the scale, so that the cable is not kinked too severely.
Never tamper with the retaining screws for the load plate support
underneath the weighing pan.
When the weighing pan is removed, never insert a solid object underneath
the load plate support.
Never open the scale by removing the screws in its base.
Use only approved accessories and peripherals.
Handle the scale with utmost care; it is a precision instrument. Blows on the
weighing pan must be avoided, and heavy overloads must not be placed on
it.

Important instructions when using Viper scales in the food sector: those
parts of the scale can come into contact with food products have smooth
surfaces and are easy to clean. The materials used do not splinter and are
free from contaminants. In food processing areas, it is recommended that a
protective cover (accessory) is used. This must be cleaned regularly, just
like the scale itself. Damaged or heavily contaminated protective covers must
be replaced immediately.
When the scale is finally taken out of service, observe the current
environmental regulations. If the scale is equipped with a battery, this
contains heavy metals and therefore must not be treated as normal refuse!
Local regulations for disposing of environmentally hazardous substances
must be complied with.
1.3 Positioning and leveling the scale
The correct location is a decisive factor in ensuring accurate weighing results.
-
Choose a stable and vibration-free location (particularly important for
high-resolution scales using Mettler Toledo MonoBloc technology). Place
the scale on a surface that is as horizontal as possible and strong
enough to bear its weight when fully loaded.
-
Check the ambient conditions.
-
Avoid:
- direct sunlight
- strong drafts (e.g. from fans or air conditioning systems)
- excessive temperature fluctuations.
Turn the adjustable feet so that the scale is horizontal. If a spirit level is filled,
the bubble must be located within the inner circle.
Note: The Viper Smart Count has a special filter that accelerates certain
procedures (zeroing, taring, determining the reference weight for piece
counting) in a non-tranquil environment. This inevitably means that there is a
slight loss of accuracy with the results. For high-precision results, care must
be taken to ensure as tranquil and stable an environment as possible, so that
the filter is not activated.
Major changes in geographical location:
Every scale is set by the manufacturer to suit the local gravitational
conditions (geographical adjustment value) in the geographical zone to
which the instrument is supplied. If a major change of geographical location
takes place, this setting must be adjusted by a service technician or a new
setting made. Certified scales must, in addition, be recalibrated in
accordance with national certification regulations.

METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count

1.4 Connecting to power supply
Before connecting the power supply plug or AC adapter (AccuPac version),
verify that the voltage stated on the model plate is the same as the local
power line voltage.
Connect the power cord plug or the AC adapter plug to the supply, then
connect the AC adapter (AccuPac version) via the jack at the rear of the
scale.
Powering up the scale initiates a display test in which all the segments and
then the software version are briefly displayed. Once the decimal zero
appears in the display, the scale is ready to operate.
For maximum possible precision, adjust/calibrate the scale after installing it
(Chapter 5.4.1). Note: Certified scales must be adjusted by an authorized
organization. Please consult your dealer.
1.5 Battery operation
Scales with a built-in battery (AccuPac) can, under normal operation
conditions, work independently of the AC power line for about 8 hours.
Immediately the AC power supply is interrupted (by withdrawing the power
cord plug or if there is a power failure), the scale switches automatically to
battery operation. Once the AC power supply is restored, the scale reverts
automatically to AC operation.
The battery symbol indicates the current discharge status of the battery (1
segment corresponding to about 25% capacity). If the symbol flashes, the
battery must be recharged.
A discharged battery requires at least 8 hours until it is recharged. During the
charging process, work with the scale can continue, but under these
conditions, a longer charging time is needed.
The battery is protected against overcharging, and the scale can therefore
remain permanently connected with the AC power line without any problems.

Enhanced functions
This Chapter describes the Smart Count features that simplify working with the application.
3.1 General Info
Smart Count provides several features which make working with the application easier.
Short Input Mode
For some Smart Count functions, it is possible to use a short-cut method of
user input.
As in the example for entering the pre-tare weight in Chapter 2.5.2, the
normal procedure for initiating user input is to press the function softkey first
before entering the data. However, it is also possible to key in the data first
prior to selecting the function the data is intended for.
.

This example shows how to enter the pre-tare weight using short-input mode.
While in standby mode, use the numeric keypad to enter the known tare
weight in the current weighing unit.
Then press the «PT» softkey or the «ÆTÅ» key to set this value as the pretare weight.
The result is the same as in Chapter 2.5.2.
Short-input mode works with the following function softkeys:
«Ref X»
The value keyed in replaces the value of X (Chapter 5.5.1) and
perform a reference weight determination using the value as
reference number of pieces (Chapter 4.1.1).
«Ref n»
The value keyed in will be used as the reference number of
pieces for the reference weight determination.
«Ref APW» The value keyed in will be used as the average piece weight.
«PT»
The value keyed in will be used as the pre-tare weight.
Smart Count recognizes if the function softkey pressed is not compatible with
short-input mode and will display a warning indicating so.

APW
Define the average piece weight of the article. It is possible to set the average
piece weight for the article by performing a reference weight determination
(Chapter 4.1.1) or by manually entering a known piece weight (Chapter
4.1.2).
Tare
Pre-defined tare weight for the article.
Sample size
Define the reference number of pieces. This value will override the one set in
'Vision Setup Æ APPLICATION Æ Counting Æ Ref X' (Chapter 5.5.1) while
the article is active.
PW optimization
The correction factor for optimizing the piece weight. The previous value of
the APW will be adjusted by this factor in relation to the new APW. Note: This
works only if PW Tol+ and PW Tol- are set and the APW is within the
tolerances.
PW Tol+
The upper limit for a new average piece weight. If the new piece weight is
above this value, a warning will be displayed prompting the operator whether
or not he wants to accept the new piece weight. Note: APW must already be
defined before setting the PW Tol+, otherwise the PW Tol+ entry will be
cleared.
PW TolThe lower limit for a new average piece weight. If the new piece weight is
below this value, a warning will be displayed prompting the operator whether
or not he wants to accept the new piece weight. Note: APW must already be
defined before setting the PW Tol+, otherwise the PW Tol+ entry will be
cleared.
Filling/checkweighing nominal
The nominal value used for the filling (Chapter 4.8) and checkweighing
(Chapter 4.9) applications. It is possible to define the nominal value in
pieces or as weight value. This parameter must be filled in first before
defining Tol+ and Tol-.
Filling/checkweighing Tol+
The upper limit for filling (Chapter 4.8) and checkweighing (Chapter 4.9)
applications. It is possible to define this parameter as an absolute value,
relative to the Nominal, or as a percentage of Filling / Nominal.

3.2.3 Save As Article
In the course of working with Smart Count, you may wish to save the current state into an article. The Save As Article
function makes this possible.
Define a softkey for “Save As Article” in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5).
In this example, a reference weight determination has already been performed
(Chapters 4.1.1 and 4.1.2).
Press the «
» softkey once to scroll to the next set of softkeys.
Press the «SaveAs» softkey…
…Smart Count asks for the Name you wish to use for this article. From this
point on, the procedure is the same as defining a normal article (Chapter
3.2.2).
Note, however, that the parameter APW is already defined and its value is set
to the APW that was active before «SaveAs» was pressed.
Aside from the APW, the article parameters that will also be saved are Tare,
Sample Size, the Filling/Checkweighing parameters, and the Totalisation
parameters.

3.3 Backup/Restore
To make working with the article database even easier, a backup/restore program is included as a standard equipment of
Viper Smart Count. This program eases data entry as articles can be defined on a standard PC which are then later
restored to the scale. This program also provides a means to backup the data stored on the scale for archive or security
reasons.
•
Install the Backup-Restore program. (Requires MS Windows 95 or higher)
•
Ensure that Viper Smart Count balance is connected to the PC via a serial interface cable. It is possible to use any of
the 3 COM ports of the balance but it is necessary to set the correct mode and parameters for the COM port. Set the
respective COM settings as follows: Mode – Dialog / Baud – 38400 / Parity – 8-none / Handshake – XonXoff.
•
Start up the Backup-Restore program by double-clicking the icon.
•
The Backup-Restore program attempts to reserve the COM2 port of the PC. If it is not successful, e.g. COM2 is not
installed or is used by another program, an appropriate message is shown. Should this be the case, select the
appropriate port in the “Interface Configuration” under the Options menu.
•
To check if the PC and scale are successfully connected, select “Help / About”. An animation will indicate whether the
Backup-Restore program was able to successfully communicate with the scale.
•
If you have determined that the Backup-Restore program can successfully communicate with the scale, you may start
the desired operation. Select either “Backup” or “Restore” from the “Transfer menu.
3.4 FlashLoader
The Viper Smart Count software is stored in flash memory and the FlashLoader program enables you to upgrade the
software of your balance when updates are available.
To be able to update your software using the FlashLoader, you will need the following:
•
•
•
PC with Microsoft Windows ® operating system (version 95, 98, NT 4.0, 2000, or XP)
Computer-to-balance connection cable (RS232 cable, 9-pin sub-D plug m/f, order number 11101051)
FlashLoader program
The FlashLoader program will guide you through the updating process.

Application
Your scale has a number of powerful application functions that can be activated in the menu (see Chapter 5.5.1). This
chapter describes the some of the functions that have been activated at the factory.
4.1 Counting pieces into a container
Place empty container on the scale and tare with the «ÆTÅ» key.
Note: If the automatic taring function is active (Chapter 5.4.3), you need not
press the «ÆTÅ» key, because the scale registers the tare weight
automatically as soon as the container is placed on the weighing pan.
Before your scale can be used for counting parts, it must know the average
piece weight (the so-called reference). The reference is then used to do the
counting. The reference can be determined by placing a number of pieces on
the scale. If the piece weight is known, it can be manually entered and used
as the reference.
4.1.1
Determining the reference by placing pieces on the scale
Define a softkey for “Ref 10” and “Ref n” in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After the softkeys have been
defined, do the following steps:
…appears on the screen.
…place 10 pieces of materials to be weighed to determine the reference
weight.
Press the «Ref 10» key.
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count
24
A reference weight has been established.
If a different number of pieces has been placed on the scale, press the
«Ref n» key and choose from among the choices of 5, 20, 30, 40 or 50
pieces. If the number of pieces is different, choose the «Var» key and enter
the desired number of pieces.
Once a reference has been determined, you can use the «Weigh» key to
switch back to the weight display at any time.
Press «Count» key to switch back again to counting mode.
You can use the «
» key to transmit the piece counting result via the
interface to a peripheral device (printer, computer) (for sample report see
Chapter 6.2).
4.1.2
Entering the reference when the piece weight is known
Define a softkey for “Ref APW” in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After the Ref APW softkey has been
defined, do the following steps:
In standby mode, press the «Ref APW» key.
Enter piece weight, example: 0.02931 kg
Press the «OK» key.
The balance has established a known reference weight and is now ready for
piece counting.

4.2 Counting out pieces out of a container
Counting out pieces from a weighing container differs in a few essentials from counting them in (Chapter 4.1).
4.2.1
Determine reference by removing pieces
…initially appears on the screen.
Place the full weighing container on the pan and tare the scale with the
«ÆTÅ» key.
… appears on the screen again.
Remove the reference number of pieces from the weighing container.
Remove further pieces until the desired number has been reached.
… a negative weight value appears on the screen.
Press the «Ref 10» or «Ref n» keys to determine the reference, as described
in the previous chapter.
The balance is now ready for piece counting.
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count
26
4.3 Reference optimization
Reference optimization serves to enhance the accuracy of the average piece weight by re-calculating it using a greater
number of reference pieces. Reference optimization can be performed either manually or automatically.
Manual Reference Optimization
Define a softkey for Reference Optimization in the softkey configuration (See
Chapter 5.5.5). The Reference Optimization softkey is displayed as «RefOpt»
and it will only be active while in piece counting mode. If the scale is in
weighing mode, this softkey will not appear even if it is part of the softkey
configuration.
To perform a reference optimization at any time, press the «RefOpt» softkey.
The average piece weight will be re-calculated using the current weight and
the current number of pieces on the scale. At each optimization, the message
“PW Opt” appears briefly and the new total number of pieces is then
displayed.
Automatic Reference Optimization
No action is required during operation for automatic reference optimization
and it functions both in “Counting in” (Chapter 4.1) and “Counting out”
(Chapter 4.2). The “Auto OPT” symbol (located near the lower right corner of
the screen) appears in the display indicates that automatic reference
optimization is switched on.
Each time you place additional parts on the scale, it optimizes automatically.
You do not have to press a key to perform optimization. At each optimization,
the message “PW Opt” appears briefly and the new total number of pieces is
then displayed.
Note: Automatic optimization only functions if the number of additional
pieces placed on the scale is not greater than the number already on the
weighing pan.
4.4 Minimum reference weight
To ensure that a more accurate average piece weight is attained during reference weight determination, it is possible to set
a desired minimum percentage accuracy as determined by the reference weight placed on the scale. To enable minimum
reference weight checking, set 'Vision Setup Æ APPLICATION Æ Counting Æ Min. Ref. WT' (See Chapter 5.5.1) to the
desired percentage accuracy.
To be able to view the percentage accuracy for a reference weight determination, set 'Vision Setup Æ APPLICATION Æ
Counting Æ Accuracy Disp.' (See Chapter 5.5.1) to 'On'.
In this example, the minimum reference weight was set to 99.5% and
accuracy display is active.
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count
Chapter 4: Application
27
10 samples were placed on the scale and «Ref 10» was pressed.
Smart Count calculates the average piece weight as in Chapter 4.1.1 but it
has determined that the percentage accuracy for the reference weight is below
the value set as Minimum Reference Weight.
It will calculate the number of pieces that you have to place on the pan to
reach the desired percentage accuracy.
After placing the specified number of pieces on the scale, the average piece
weight will be optimized (Chapter 4.3) and, since accuracy display is active,
the percentage accuracy will be displayed for approximately 4 seconds.
Note that in this example, the percentage accuracy is at 99.54% which is
above the desired minimum reference weight of 99.5%.
Smart Count is now ready to perform piece counting using the optimized
average piece weight.
It is possible to override the minimum reference weight checking by pressing
the «C» key when you are prompted to add pieces on the scale. This will
enable you to use the calculated piece weight, but note that a “*” appears on
the display to indicate that the reference weight is below the desired
percentage accuracy.
Adding mode works both with “Counting in” (Chapter 4.1) and with
“Counting out” (Chapter 4.2).
4.5 Using the info key
Use the «i» key to call up additional information as defined in the Info/Help menu under Application (Chapter 5.5.6).
In this example, Info lines 1 to 4 were configured to show the gross weight,
date, time, and percentage accuracy respectively.
i
Pressing the «i» key will toggle between a screen that shows the default
content of the Info lines and another window that shows the additional
information configured such as the Gross Weight, Date, Time and Percentage
Accuracy.
For a list of the additional information that can be displayed on the Info lines,
please refer to Chapter 5.5.6.
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count

4.6 Piece counting with 2-scale systems
You can hook up your Viper scale to a second scale, e.g. a floor scale for counting a large number of pieces that would
exceed the capacity of Viper.
In the Vision Menu select the Smart Count operating mode for connecting a
second scale. See Chapter 5: Vision setup under “Communications” Æ
“Com1/Com2/Com3” Æ “Mode”.
The interface of the second scale must be set as follows:
-
For Viper and Spider scales:
“Mode”: “Dialog” (9600 bd, 8b no parity, Xon/Xoff)
For PB-S scales:
“Mode”: “Host” (9600 bd, 8b no parity, Xon/Xoff)
For other METTLER TOLEDO products:
MT-SICS-compatible interface (9600 bd, 8b no parity, Xon/Xoff)
There are three modes that can be assigned to the second scale:
Reference The second scale is to be used for reference weight determination
only. The APW will be calculated using the weight placed on the
second scale regardless of the active scale. This is used if the
second scale has a finer resolution than the Smart Count scale to
achieve a more precise piece weight.
Bulk
The second scale is to be used as bulk weight only. The APW will
be calculated using the weight placed on the first scale (Smart
Count scale), regardless of the active scale, then the weight on
the second scale will be used for counting. This is used if the
sample to be weighed is heavier than the maximum load of the
Smart Count scale.
Auxiliary
The second scale can be used as either reference or bulk scale
and the active scale will not be automatically switched after the
reference weight determination.
When an interface is set to one of the three modes above, the scale switch
key will be added to the softkeys. You can toggle between the two scales with
the « » key.
While in Reference or Bulk modes, you can override the source used for
reference weight determination by keeping the « » key pressed for 1
second. Info line 4 will indicate which scale will be used for reference weight
determination.
The scale symbol on the top right in the display indicates the active scale:
“ 1” = viper scale, “ 2” = second scale.
When the second scale is active, you can zero and tare it with the Viper
«Æ0Å» and «ÆTÅ» keys, respectively.

4.7 Totalisation
If the scale is in piece counting mode, you can do several piece counts and then determine the total number of pieces
weighed and their total weight. If the scale is in weighing mode, several weighings can also be accumulated to determine
their total.
To print reports of the totalisation transactions, a printer should be connected to one of the COM Interfaces and the mode
should be set to “Printer”.
Define a softkey for Totalisation in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After a Totalisation softkey has been
defined, do the following steps:
If a weighing container is used, it must be tared.
Determine the reference (see Chapter 4.1)
Press the «
Press the «
» key to go to the next menu.
» key to start the totalisation function.
Press the «+» key to add the current number of pieces to the total.
The quantity of the first lot has been saved in the memory. If Lot printing is
active (Chapter 5.5.3) the lot number, net weight and number of pieces will
be printed out automatically.
Place the desired quantity of the second lot and press the «+» key to add
again.
Press the «n» key to limit the number of lots to accumulate.
If Max n is defined, it will only be possible to accumulate as many lots as the
value set. Once the number of lots accumulated reaches the value of Max n,
a warning will be displayed indicating that maximum items have been
reached.
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count
30
Press the «Delete» key to clear all the lots from the memory. A summary
report with the total number of lots, total weight, and total number of pieces
will be printed out.
Press the «Undo» key to discard the last lot added.
To close the Totalisation application at any time, press the «Cancel» key.
This will return the scale to standby mode but the lots accumulated will be
retained in memory.
To close the Totalisation application and clear all the lots from memory,
press the «C» key. This will also generate a summary report.
Note: If an article was active when the Totalisation application was started,
the Totalisation parameters (Chapter 3.2.2) of the article will be updated by
the transactions done with the application. That means the total net or gross
weight, the total pieces, and the number of lots will be added to the values
already stored in the database for the active article
4.8 Filling
The filling application simplifies weighing of small parts (e.g. liquid or powder) until a target amount or weight is reached.
It provides the user a visual indication of the amount currently on the scale in relation to the target amount. If activated in
the Vision Setup, the scale will also beep if the amount is already within the tolerance limits defined.
Define a softkey for Filling in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After a Filling softkey has been defined, do the
following steps:
In standby mode, press the «
» key to scroll to the next menu.
Press the «Filling» key.
In this example, Target (target weight), + Tol (positive tolerance) and – Tol
(negative tolerance) have been defined. The first bar graph that appears is
the coarse range indicator. The fine range, as shown by the gray area in the
bar graph, depends on the tolerance limits set. As the tolerance limits are
increased or decreased, the size of the fine range will also be adjusted
accordingly.
Place sample to be weighed on the scale.
As soon as the weighed amount reaches the start of the fine range, a second
bar graph appears that shows the fine range.
For very small tolerance limits, there will be a third-stage indicator that will
appear to show the fine range.
Please refer to the Notes in Chapter 4.9 for additional information.
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count
Chapter 4: Application
31
4.9 Checkweighing (+/-)
The checkweighing application simplifies verification of sample weights or amounts. It provides the user with visual
indicators to show whether or not weight of the sample is within tolerance limits of a specified target weight or amount.
Define a softkey for Checkweighing in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After a checkweighing (+/-) softkey
has been defined, do the following steps:
In standby mode, press the «
» key to scroll to the next menu.
Press the «+/-» key.
In this example, Target (target weight), + Tol (positive tolerance) and – Tol
(negative tolerance) have been defined.
Place sample to be weighed on the scale.
The indicators help the user easily verify the weight if the sample is within the
targets defined.
Notes:
The Filling and CheckWeighing applications use the filling parameters stored in the article database (Chapter 3.2.2) if
they are defined and if they are in the same mode (weighing or piece counting). For example, if Filling/Checkweighing
Nominal is defined as weight and the scale is currently in weighing mode, it will not be possible to define Target, Tol+,
and Tol- while the Filling or Checkweighing applications are active. The values for these parameters will be taken from
those defined in the current article. If however, Filling/Nominal is defined as weight and the scale is in counting mode, the
Filling parameters of the article will not be used and the Target, Tol+ and Tol- parameters of the Filling or Checkweighing
applications will have to be defined inside the application.
Clearing the currently selected article by pressing the «C» key while in standby mode will not clear the values defined for
Target, Tol+, and Tol-. To clear these parameters, the «C» has to be pressed while inside the Filling or Checkweighing
applications.
4.10 Factor/Unit
The Factor/Unit weighing function allows weighing using a unit that can be defined freely.
Define a softkey for Factor/Unit in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After a Factor/Unit softkey has been
defined, do the following steps:
In standby mode, press the «
» key to scroll to the next menu.
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO Viper Smart Count
32
Press the «F/U» key.
From the main Factor/Unit screen you can define the text for the custom unit,
set the factor to use for weighing, recall previous definitions, or save the
current definition.
Define the text for the custom unit.
The factor can either be entered manually or can be calculated from the
weight of samples placed on the balance.
To define the factor manually, press the «SetFact» softkey.
To use the automatically calculated factor, place the sample on the scale,
press the «Build» softkey and enter the reference mass.
To change the resolution of the display, press the «Format» softkey and
select the desired format.
You can save the factor and unit you have just defined by pressing the
«Save» softkey. While in this screen, you can delete other Factor/Unit
definitions you have already saved or save your current definition.
To save the current definition, press «Save» and enter the name you wish to
give this definition.
You can save up to 25 Factor/Unit definitions.
To recall previous Factor/Unit definitions, press the «Recall» softkey and
select the name of the Factor/Unit definition you wish to use.

4.11 Average weighing
The Average weighing function allows weighing of unstable goods (e.g. animals). It takes around 10 seconds to
calculate the average weight of the load. This function also works in piece counting mode.
Define a softkey for Average weighing in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.5). After an Average weighing softkey
has been defined, do the following steps:
In standby mode, press the «
» key to scroll to the next menu.
Place the load on the scale and press the «Average» key. Smart Count will
then take weight readings for 10 seconds and average these weight values.
After 10 seconds, Smart Count will display the average weight of the load.
Note that the ‘AVERAGE’ indicator on the upper right side of the display is
visible while in Average weighing mode.
While in this mode, the weight displayed is frozen and small variations in the
actual weight due to the unstable load will not be reflected on the display.
If the load changes more than 10% then the weight display will be released
and Average weighing is no longer active.

Vision setup
Vision Setup can be used to change the settings of the scale and to activate functions, thereby allowing the scale to be
adapted to individual weighing needs.
Important: To avoid incorrect operation of the scale in normal use, Vision Setup can be protected with a password. The
scale differentiates between a user and a supervisor. When the scale leaves the factory, the entire menu can be accessed
by both user and supervisor. We therefore recommend you to define your own supervisor password as soon as you
set up the scale (Chapter 5.7). This limits access by the user to a smaller number of menu items (calibration, and
settings for energy-saving mode and backlighting).

7.5 Interface commands
Your scale can be configured and operated, and can communicate from a PC via RS232C interface.
7.5.1
Preconditions
The following preconditions must be fulfilled to achieve communication between the scale and a PC:
•
The scale must be connected to the RS232C interface of the PC using the necessary cable.
•
The scale interface must be set in “Dialog” mode (see Chapter 5.9.1).
•
A terminal program must be available on the PC (e.g. “Hyper Terminal”).
•
The communications parameters (protocol, bits and parity, data transfer rate) must be set using the same values in
the terminal program and in the scale (see Chapter 5.9.2).
7.5.2
SICS Command set
Your scale basically supports the Mettler Toledo Standard Interface Command Set (MT-SICS). The SICS command set
used are “Level 0”, “Level 1”, and some “Level 2” commands. Detailed information on the interface commands is given
in the “MT SICS Reference Manual” (No. 705184, only available in English).
Notes:
• Every command line must be terminated with <CR><LF> (corresponding to the “Enter” or “Return” key on the PC
keyboard). The command is then executed immediately. To correct a line, this needs to be entered again completely.
• For commands with parameters, the “_” symbol signifies an empty space, and in the examples given, serves solely
to clarify the syntax.
• For commands that require text parameters, the quotation marks must be entered, as they indicate to the scale that
they enclose a text string and not another parameter.

Important notice for verified weighing instruments in EC countries
M
M
Weighing instruments verified at the place of manufacture bear the preceding mark on the packing label and a
green “M” sticker on the descriptive plate. They may be set to work immediately.
Weighing instruments which are verified in two steps have no green “M” on the descriptive plate and bear the
preceding identification mark on the packing label. The second step of the verification must be carried out by
the approved Mettler-Toledo service or by the W&M authorities. Please contact your Mettler-Toledo
organization.
The first step of the verification has been carried out at the manufacturing plant. It comprises all tests according to
EN45501-8.2.2.
If national regulations in individual countries limit the period of validity of the certification, the operator of such a scale is
himself responsible for its timely re-certification.
USA/Canada
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to both Part 15
of the FCC Rules and the radio interference regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the
interference at his own expense.
Cet appareil a été testé et s’est avéré conforme aux limites prévues pour les appareils numériques de classe A et à la
partie 15 des règlements FCC et à la réglementation des radio-Interférences du Canadian Department of Communications.
Ces limites sont destinées à fournir une protection adéquate contre les interférences néfastes lorsque l’appareil est utilisé
dans un environnement commercial. Cet appareil génère, utilise et peut radier une énergie à fréquence radioélectrique ; il
est en outre susceptible d’engendrer des interférences avec les communications radio, s’il n’est pas installé et utilisé
conformément aux instructions du mode d’emploi. L’utilisation de cet appareil dans les zones résidentielles peut causer
des interférences néfastes, auquel cas l’exploitant sera amené à prendre les dispositions utiles pour palier aux
interférences à ses propres frais.
