5.2 Leveling the Balance
The balance must be leveled in order to enable it to provide accurate weighing results.
Leveling the balance compensates for slant or unevenness at the place of installation
by twisting the front leveling feet of the balance.
Leveling is always required if the balance is set up at a different location or is moved
at its original location.
The leveling function is different for the various balance models:
– Electronic level indicator (Secura® only)
– Conventional level indicator (Quintix®)
Note: The balance needs to be re-leveled and then adjusted each time its setup
location is changed.

The menu provides the following applications for various weighing tasks:
Weighing (see page 40)
This is the standard application that appears when the balance is first switched on.
Use this application to determine the weight of a sample within the device's specific
weighing range.
Mixing (see page 45)
Use this application to weigh up to 99 components one after the other for a mixture
or formula in one container. The balance is automatically tared after each component
is weighed. The weight value of an individual component or the total weight can be
displayed as desired.
Secura®, Quintix® User Manual
25
Using the Balance
Statistics (see page 48)
Use this application to save weight and calculated values and statistically analyze
them. You can save up to 99 components.
Components (see page 51)
Totalize weight values. You can save up to 99 components that are weighed in various
individual containers.
Each container can be tared before each component is weighed.
Density (see page 54)
Use this application to determine the density of solid samples using a density set
based on the buoyancy method. The density is determined using Archimedes'
Principle. The upward buoyant force exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal
to the weight of the fluid the body displaces.
Percentage (see page 58)
This application is used to determine the percentage share or the percentage
difference of the sample related to a reference weight.
Conversion (see page 61)
Use this application to multiply the weight value by a user-defined factor.
The selected factor is saved to protected memory.
Unstable condition (see page 63)
This application is used for moving samples (e.g., live animals) and for weighing in
unstable environments. A measurement cycle is automatically carried out with a
defined number of measurements for each object to be weighed. The individual
measurements are averaged, and this average is displayed as the result.
Checkweighing (see page 65)
Use this application to check whether a weight value falls within the specified
tolerances. This application also makes it easy to fill sample materials to a specified
target weight.
Peak hold (see page 67)
Use this application to calculate the maximum weight value of a sample (peak value).
The value remains on the display for five seconds after the sample has been removed
from the balance.
Example: Use for measuring release force during an experiment, or use when a load is
so big that the balance display is hidden from view during weighing.
Counting (see page 69)
Use this application to determine the number of parts of approximately equal weight.
The weight of a counted reference sample is calculated and then the objects with an
unknown piece count are weighed. The balance displays the number of parts and the
piece weight.

7.2 SQmin Minimum Weighing (Secura® only)
Purpose: This application is used to compare the measured weight value directly with the
defined minimum sample quantity (SQmin = sample quantity minimum). This ensures
that weighing results are above the specified minimum weight defined by your
quality assurance system. This function is used to observe the minimum weight in
order to meet the criteria of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), for example.
SQmin is not the same as the minimum capacity Min in legal metrology.
Requirements: The balance must be set up by a service technician to be able to use the SQmin
function. The technician will determine the permitted minimum sample quantity
and load this to your balance using the guidelines of your QA system. He or she will
document this setting via a “Weighing module test as per USP” certificate in which
the measurements and min. sample quantity are logged. The SQmin function ensures
that the weighing results correspond to USP guidelines.
Switching SQmin On/Off
If the SQmin function is set up on the balance, go to the Settings menu,

7.7 Density
Purpose: Use this application to determine the density of solid samples based on the buoyancy
method. The density is determined using Archimedes' Principle. The upward buoyant
force exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid the
body displaces.
Calculation Basis for Density Determination
Density determination using the buoyancy method is based on the following formula:
ρ ρfl Wa Wfl
Density of sample (Rho)
Density of buoyancy liquid
Weight of sample in air
Weight of sample in liquid
Buoyancy: ρ = (Wa / (Wa - Wfl)) * ρfl
Requirements: A Sartorius density determination kit is required for this function (see Chapter
“Accessories” on page 103).
Mount the density determination kit on the balance and prepare it as described in the
kit instructions.
t Select the menu key in any application.
t Select the Density symbol in the menu.
yThe Density application appears.
The density of the buoyancy liquid is displayed under Density of liquid.

7.9 Conversion
Purpose: Use this application to multiply the weight value by a user-defined factor. Division is
also possible if a factor of less than one is selected. The selected factor is saved to
protected memory.
Example: You want to calculate the weight per unit of a sheet of paper (DIN A4).
To do so, proceed as follows:
– The weight per unit (e.g., 80 g/m2) can be determined by dividing the weight by
the surface.
– The surface of a sheet of DIN A4 paper is: 0.210 + 0.297 = 0.06237 m2.
– Division by 0.06237 is equal to multiplication by reciprocal value 1 / 0.06237,
i.e., 16.03335.
– Set the factor to 16.03335 in the application.

Calibration and Adjustment
8. Calibration and Adjustment
BackgroundDuring calibration, a calibration weight is used to determine how much the displayed
value deviates from the actual measurement value. This deviation is compared against
a preset target value. The subsequent adjustment corrects this deviation or reduces
the permissible error limits.
In Secura® and Quintix® balances, calibration and adjustment are combined as one
process. The balance is automatically adjusted after each calibration.
Before using a verified balance for legal metrology, calibration/adjustment
must always be carried out at the balance setup location. This can be performed
automatically or manually.
When and How Often To achieve the highest accuracy possible, regularly calibrate and adjust the balance:
– daily after switching on the balance.
– each time the balance is leveled.
– each time ambient conditions have changed (temperature, humidity, or air
pressure).
– each time the balance is set up at a new location or moved in its current location.
The following describes in detail the available options for calibrating and adjusting
the balance:
– Calibration/adjustment using an internal calibration weight
– Calibration/adjustment using an external calibration weight
(see “Calibration/Adjustment Using an External Calibration Weight” on page 74)
– Automatic calibration/adjustment with isoCAL

Calibration and Adjustment
8.3 Automatic Calibration/Adjustment with isoCAL
Fully automatic calibration/adjustment ensures that the balance is automatically
calibrated and adjusted when predefined time intervals or temperature values are
exceeded.
This function varies in different models:
– isoCAL is automatically carried out based on time or temperature, and each time
the balance is leveled. This function can be switched off via the system settings
(see page 30).
isoCAL
Max 120 g
d=0.00001 g
0.00000
In Secura® models, every adjustment process, including the identified deviations,
is documented and saved on the balance. The saved reports can be viewed via the
system settings and printed out on a PC or Sartorius lab printer (see page 30).
y If the ambient temperature has changed since the last calibration/adjustment or
the preset time interval has been exceeded, the red isoCAL button appears on
the display.
y If the isoCAL function is set to Automatic, the calibration/adjustment process
starts automatically.
! If the balance has not been adjusted, the prompt will be shown again 5 minutes
after the “isoCAL” status message is acknowledged.
y If the isoCAL function is set to Info, manual start, the function must be started
manually.

Care and Maintenance
13. Care and Maintenance
13.1 Service
To ensure the continued accuracy of your balance, we recommend scheduling regular
servicing at least once a year. The Sartorius Service Center offers different service
contracts for this purpose, which can be individually adapted to suit your needs (see
also www.sartorius.com/service). A calibration certificate should always be issued as
part of every maintenance session. Safety inspections of the AC adaptor and its
connections must be performed at appropriate intervals by a qualified electrician
(e.g., every 2 years).
Repairs
Repair work must only be carried out by trained service technicians. The device must
be unplugged during repair work. Unplug from the mains power. In addition, the
measurement accuracy of your balance may be affected and serious risks to the user
may occur. Contact Sartorius Service or a Sartorius dealer for proper repairs.
