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)
•
Operating instructions (this document)
•
Special accessories (if any) as per packing list
1.2
Safety and environment
CAUTION!
Do not use BBA462 / BBK462 in hazardous areas!
Our product range includes special devices for hazardous 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.
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462
Chapter 1: Setting up the scale

Parts of the scale coming into contact with foodstuffs have smooth surfaces
and are easy to clean. The materials used do not splinter and are free of
harmful substances.
With foodstuffs, it is recommended to use the supplied protective cover.
-
Clean the protective cover regularly and carefully.
Replace damaged or very dirty protective cover 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 BBA462 / BBK462 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:
The manufacturer adjusts each scale to the local gravity conditions (GEO
value). In the event of major geographical location changes, this setting must
be adjusted by a service technician. Certified scales must also be recertified
observing the national certification regulations. These steps are not necessary
for scales with an internal calibration weight.

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 can work independently from the mains for
approximately 30 hours in normal operation. A prerequisite for this is that the
background lighting is switched off and that no peripheral devices are
connected.
The device automatically switches to battery operation as soon as the mains
supply is interrupted. When the mains supply is restored, the device
automatically switches back to mains operation.
The battery symbol indicates the present charging level of the battery. 1
segment corresponds to approx. 25 % capacity. When the symbol flashes
the battery must be charged (min. 4 hours). The charging period is extended
if work is continued during charging. The battery is protected against
overcharging.
Note: The battery’s charging capacity can be reduced under continuous
mains operation.
To maintain the charging capacity, after a maximum of 4 weeks discharge
the battery completely before recharging it.

Simple weighing
Place the object to be weighed on the scale.
The bar graph at the top of the display shows how much of the weighing
range is being used and how much is still available (as % of total scale
capacity). The range symbol at the upper right corner of the display shows
the first or second half of the range of the maximum load. Note: The number
changes from 1 to 2 when set for 2 weighing ranges:
Example: 6 kg scale:
1. Range 0 – 3 kg
Resolution 1 g
2. Range 0 – 6 kg
Resolution 2 g
nd
st
In order to switch from the 2 range back to the 1 range, the load must first
be removed from the scale or it must be zeroed. MonoBloc scales will
automatically switch back to fine range upon load removal.
Wait until the stability detector (a small ring at the left edge of the display)
disappears, then…
… read the indicated net weight and press the «HighRes» key.
Chapter 2: Basic functions
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462

The «HighRes» key enables the weighing result to be displayed in control
mode, i.e. with a higher resolution.
Note: Each of the highest possible resolutions will be displayed in DMS
scales. In MonoBloc scales, the resolution will be ten times higher. Control
mode is not available if the maximum resolution has already been selected in
Vision setup (Chapter 5).
Press «Average» key to perform average weighing or press «Cancel» key to
go back to the normal weighing mode. The averaged value corresponds with
the average weight and the procedure takes about 20 seconds.
2.5
Weighing with tare
The tare can be specified by placing the weighing container on the scale or by entering the tare weight numerically. The
two possibilities are described below. Moreover, the gross and net weights can be determined separately.
2.5.1 Taring by placing the weighing container on the scale
Place the empty weighing container or packaging on the scale.
Press the «T» key briefly to tare the scale.
The zero display and the “Net” (net weight) symbol appear. Note: If the
automatic tare function has been activated in Vision Setup (Chapter 5.4.3),
there is no need to press the «T» key.
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462
Chapter 2: Basic functions
15
Place the material to be weighed in the container, then…
… read the result (net weight of the weighing sample).
Note: The tare weight is retained until either a new tare is determined, or the
scale is set to zero or switched off. If the automatic taring function is active,
the tare is automatically cleared when weighing is completed and the
weighing pan emptied; the scale is then ready for the next taring and
weighing.
2.5.2 Entering the tare weight numerically (pre-tare)
Note: The «PT» softkey is not given as a standard softkey, because pre-tare
can also be inputted using the Short Input Mode (see Chapter 3.1). This
function key must thus be defined separately in Vision Setup. To define
function keys, see Chapter 5.5.7. You will find an overview of all function
keys that can be defined in Chapter 5.3.2. Press « » to show other
available function keys and press «
» to go back to the first page of the
function keys.
Press the «PT» softkey.
… appears on the screen.
Press the «New» softkey to enter the tare weight. If you want to work further
with other tare weights, you can set and define the «Add. Tare» key. The
additional tare weights will be added to the actual tare weights. The «Undo»
softkey deletes the last defined "Add. Tare Weight". The «Delete» softkey
deletes the whole tare weight.
.

Press the «New» softkey now and using the numeric keypad, enter the known
tare weight in the current weighing unit and confirm with «OK».
The tare values entered appear in the display with a negative sign and the
symbol “Net” (net weight). As soon as the weighing container with the
corresponding weight is placed on the scale, the zero display appears.

2.5.3 Determining the gross and net weights
Place the empty weighing container or packaging on the scale and then
press the «T» key briefly, or press the «PT» softkey if a known tare
weight has already been established.
Place the material to be weighed in the container, then…
… read the indicated net weight. Scroll on the «
» key.
Press the «Gross» softkey. This function causes the gross weight to be
displayed (the “G” symbol appears and replaces the “Net” symbol).
Note: «Gross» is not given as a standard softkey and must be defined
separately in Vision Setup. In order to define the «Gross» softkey, see Chapter
5.5.7.
After a few seconds, the scale goes back automatically to net weight display.
2.6
Recording weighing results
Press the «
» key to send the current weighing result to the peripheral
device (printer, computer) via the interface.
Note: A multiple print out can be generated by entering a number with the
numeric keypad followed by pressing the «

Enhanced functions
This Chapter describes the BBA462 / BBK462 features that simplify working with the application.
3.1
General Info
BBA462 / BBK462 provides several features which make working with the application easier.
Short Input Mode
For some BBA462 / BBK462 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.
.
1
5
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 «T» 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:
«Smpl X»
«Smpl n»
«APW»
«T»
«PT»
«
»
«0»
The value keyed in replaces the value of X (Chapter 5.5.1) and
performs a reference weight determination using the value as
reference number of pieces (Chapter 4.1.1). Default value for X

The name of the article can contain up to a maximum of 24 alphanumeric
characters. If 'Vision Setup APPLICATION Database Article Search
criterion' is set to “By name”, this parameter is used for searching in the
article database.
Chapter 3: Enhanced functions
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462
20
Number
The number of the article can contain up to a maximum of 24 alphanumeric
characters. If 'Vision Setup APPLICATION Database Article Search
criterion' is set to “By number”, this parameter is used for searching in the
article database.
Identification / ID1 and ID2
Additional identification parameters for the article that can contain up to a
maximum of 24 alphanumeric characters. These parameters could be used
to provide additional information about the article in the report printouts.
Tare
Pre-defined tare weight for the article. The pre-defined tare weight can both be
weighed-in or entered manually. Enter the weight value manually, in case the
tare weight is already known.
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).
Sample size
Define the reference number of pieces. This value will override the one set in
'Vision Setup APPLICATION Counting Sample_X' (Chapter 5.5.1)
while the article is active.
PW optimization
The correction factor for optimizing the piece weight. The new value of the
APW will be adjusted by this factor in relation to the previous APW. Note: This
works only if PW Tol+ and PW Tol- are set and the APW is within the
tolerances, and also if a reference quantity (reference number of pieces) is
defined.
See also below Example.
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.

Example: In order to have the wearing down of the filling machine reflected,
the already existing value should be rated higher with 20% whereas the new
piece weight is rated with 80%.
To ensure that only 'good' pieces are used to build a new reference, they are
only allowed to derive max. 5% from the currently saved average piece
weight.
Currently saved average piece weight = 0,1000kg
PW Optimization = 80%
PW Tol + = 5%
PW Tol - = 5%
New piece weight = 0,0970kg ( = within the tolerance +/- 5% of 0,1000kg)
=> new piece weight in the database = 0,0976kg (0,1000kg x 20% +
0,0970kg x 80%)
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.
Filling/checkweighing TolThe lower limit for the 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 nominal.

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 «T» key.
Note: If the automatic taring function is active (Chapter 5.4.3), you need not
press the «T» 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
The softkeys "Smpl X" and "Smpl n" are already given as standard function keys. In case they are not visible on the
display, define a softkey for "Smpl X" and "Smpl n" in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.7). After the softkeys
have been defined, do the following steps:
…appears on the screen (standard setting for Smpl X = 10)
Note: The standard value for "X" in Smpl X can be defined in Setup (see
Chapter 5.5.1)
…place 10 pieces of materials to be weighed to determine the reference
weight.
Press the «Smpl 10» key.
Note: If a different number of pieces has been placed on the scale, please
use the Short Input Mode (see Chapter 3.1). The value that you have entered
for "X" is still saved, and will not change until after you overwrite it with a new
value.
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462

A reference weight has been established.
If a different number of pieces has been placed on the scale, press the
«Smpl 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.
Note: The Short Input Mode is also available for the functions «Smpl X» and
«Smpl n» (see Chapter 3.1).
Once a reference has been determined, you can use the «Weigh» key to
switch back to the weight display at any time.
Note: This function is not given as a standard function key, because Gross,
Tare and Net will be continuously shown on the upper left of the display. To
activate it, proceed similar like activating « Smpl X» or « Smpl n» (see
Chapter 5.5.7).
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
The softkey "APW" is already given as a standard function key. In case it is not visible on the display, define a softkey for
"APW" in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.7). After the APW softkey has been defined, do the following steps:
In standby mode, press the «APW» key.
Enter piece weight, example: 0.02931 kg

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 5.5.7). The Reference Optimization softkey is displayed as «PW Enh»
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 «PW Enh» 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 Enh” 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 Enh” 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. If t the differences between the parts are too big, the reference
optimization will not be executed.
4.4
Minimum sample weight
To ensure that a more accurate average piece weight is attained during reference weight determination, it is possible to set
desired minimum percentage accuracy as determined by the reference weight placed on the scale. To enable minimum
sample weight checking, set 'Vision Setup APPLICATION Counting Min. Sample 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 APPLICATION Counting 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 BBA462 / BBK462
Chapter 4: Application
29
10 samples were placed on the scale and «Smpl 10» was pressed.
BBA462 / BBK462 calculates the average piece weight as discussed in
Chapter 4.1.1 but it has determined that the percentage accuracy for the
reference weight is below the value set as Minimum Sample 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 sample weight of 99.5%.
BBA462 / BBK462 is now ready to perform piece counting using the
optimized average piece weight.
It is possible to override the minimum sample 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 sample 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 5.5.8).
In this example, Info lines 1 to 4 were configured to show the gross weight,
date, time, and percentage accuracy respectively.

Press and hold
key for switching from reference scale to bulk scale
and for entering the modes.
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 BBA462 / BBK462
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 (BBA462 /
BBK462 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
BBA462 / BBK462 scale.
Auxiliary The second scale can be used as either reference or bulk scale.
The reference can be determined and also counted on both
scales. The active scale will not be automatically switched after
the reference weight determination.
Note: The interface of the second scale must be set as follows:
-
For BBA/BBK4.. scales:
"Mode": "Dialog" (9600 bd, 8b no parity, Xon/Xoff)

When the second scale is active, you can zero and tare it with the BBA462 /
BBK462 «0» and «T» keys, respectively.
4.7
Accumulation
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.
There are several report printouts that are available in the Accumulation application. To select the desired settings and to
connect and configure a printer, see Chapter 5.5.4 and Chapter 5.9.3 respectively.
Define a softkey for Accumulation in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.7). After an Accumulation softkey has been

is defined as weight and the scale is currently in weighing mode, it will not be possible to define Target, Tol+, and Tolwhile 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» softkey 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 Custom Unit
The Custom Unit weighing function allows weighing using a unit that can be customized (a unit specified by the
customer). You may choose to use this function through a function key or Database menu.
Define a softkey for Custom Unit in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.7). After a Custom Unit softkey has been
defined, do the following steps:
In standby mode, press the «
» softkey to scroll to the next menu.
To start the application press the «CU» softkey.
From the main Custom 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.
Note: The «Esc» softkey is available only if a "Custom Unit" is defined in the
database.
Press the «SetUnit» softkey and enter the abbreviation of the custom unit.
Confirm by pressing «OK».
The factor can either be entered manually or can be calculated from the
weight of samples placed on the scale.
Press the «Factor» softkey. To manually enter the factor, press the «SetFact»
softkey. To calculate the factor using the weight of samples placed on the
scale, press the «Build» softkey.
Define the factor manually, by pressing the «SetFact» softkey.
Note
If a piece weight was entered for an article, the number of pieces is used for
recalling and defining the free unit.
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462
Chapter 4: Application
35
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.
Note: the customer unit can also be determined individually in the database
for each single article.
4.11 High resolution / Average weighing
The "High resolution" function displays the net weight at a higher resolution.
This function allows weighing of unstable goods (e.g. animals) with a higher precision. It takes around 20 seconds to
calculate the average weight of the load. This function also works in piece counting mode.
Define a softkey for "High resolution" in the softkey configuration (See Chapter 5.5.7). This softkey is already defined as a
standard softkey. After this softkey has been defined, do the following steps:
Press the «HighRes» softkey in order to display the net weight at a higher
resolution.
Note: When using strain gauge scales, the highest possible resolution will
be shown. For MonoBloc scales the resolution will become 10 times higher.
Place the load on the scale and press the «Average» softkey. BBA462 /
BBK462 will then take weight readings for 10 seconds and average these
weight values.
The "Average" function can also be placed as a function key outside the "High
resolution".
Chapter 4: Application
METTLER TOLEDO BBA462 / BBK462
36
After some more seconds, BBA462 / BBK462 will display the average weight
of the load.
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.
You can leave this function by pressing the «Esc» softkey.
Note: Certified scales will automatically leave the "High resolution" function
after 3 seconds.
4.12 Alibi memory
The alibi memory is an optional fitting, depending on the individual specification of the BBA462 / BBK462.
The alibi memory serves to store weighing data of the past, in order to have them accessible at a later time in case of
necessity. As soon as a 'stable value' is generated by the scale, it will be stored in the alibi memory. Such stable values
key, after responding to certain SICS commands (S, SU, SR, SRU, P101,
can be generated by either pressing the
P102, PRN etc.), the 'Toledo Continuous' command P or the Auto Print mode.
Define the "Alibi memory" softkey in "Vision Setup APPLICATION Function keys", as discussed in Chapter 5.5.7. This
softkey is already defined as a standard softkey.
To be able to save in the alibi memory, "Vision Setup APPLICATION Alibi memory On/Off" should be turned "On".
In standby mode, press the «
» softkey to scroll to the next menu.
In order to go to the Alibi memory application, press the «Alibi» softkey.
The entries that have been previously saved will be shown. Press the «*»
softkey to directly go to the last (newest) entry. This is marked by an asterisk
as well.
Press the «Search» softkey in order to reach the search mask of the alibi
memory. With this function, you can define search criteria that will serve as a
basis for searching entries. Press the «Change» softkey and select the desired
search criteria. There are two steps to follow when entering search criteria:
First the "From Border" should be entered and then afterwards the "To Border".
The search criteria "Scale" and "Auxiliary Field" does not give out any
information regarding "From/To".
Press the «Details» softkey in order to reach the detail mask. It represents the
alibi data of the chosen entries located on the side of the screen. This can be
printed out.

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, as well as date and time).

Cleaning instructions
Disconnect the scale from the power supply before cleaning it!
Use a damp cloth (do not use acids, alkalis or strong solvents).
Wet cleaning is only allowable on scales with IP65 ingress protection.
If heavily contaminated, the weighing pan, protective cover (if fitted) and
adjustable feet must be removed and cleaned separately.
With the weighing pan removed, never use a solid object to clean underneath
the load plate support!
Observe your organization’s internal rules and industry-specific regulations for
cleaning intervals and permissible cleaning agents.

Interface commands
Your scale can be configured and operated, and can communicate from a PC via RS232C interface (as well as Ethernet
and/or USB interface), i.e. data transmitted to a PC.
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 5.9.3).
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. 22011459, 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.
The following lists the supported MT-SICS commands:
I0

Information for verified scales
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.
