1 Introduction
1.1
What are the capabilities of the LC-P45 Printer?
The LC-P45 is a versatile dot matrix printer with advanced print functions for normal paper. It can supplement the weight value with date, time and other data.
It has two LocalCAN interfaces and one RS-232-C interface and is primarily suitable for attachment to METTLER TOLEDO balances and scales equipped with
the standard software, but will also print out the records of the METTLER TOLEDO application software Pacs (M-Pacs) and of the LP16 and LJ16 METTLER
TOLEDO Infrared Dryers.
The various print functions of the LC-P45 can be selected in the dialog mode (English, German, French, Spanish or Italian). The settings are stored in a failsafe manner thanks to battery buffering.
• Print weight
The LC-P45 prints out the weight displayed on the balance directly.
- Date and time
- Lot identification (ID)
- Balance identification
- Current sample No.
For users complying with quality management regulations such as GLP or GMP or for those who wish
for a detailed record of a weighing. You can supplement the weighing result by automatically printing
out any of the adjacent data.
- Sample code
The sample code, a comment for a more detailed definition of the weighing sample, is entered directly
for every sample.
• Totalization
Without the need to purchase peripherals or software, the LC-P45 automatically generates statistics of the
weight values of your sample series and calculates the most important statistical parameters.

• Insertion of The LC-P45 can also totalize weight values, thus calculating and documenting running totals. This function is especially useful when weighing in formulations.
• Multiplication/division
This function allows weight values to be multiplied or divided by any desired factors, Typical examples
are calculating prices based on a price per unit weight or converting weights into volumes.
• Check balance and calibrate
A check on the accuracy of a balance by means of a test weight is fully documented. Likewise, adjustment of the balance by means of a calibration weight.
• LP16/LJ16 Infrared Dryer
Date, time and lot identification (ID) are automatically added to the record.
• Pipette check
This function enables pipettes and other volumetric measuring and dosing apparatus to be calibrated by
a simple method which is also completely documented.
2 Startup procedure
2.1
Cautionary notes
For reasons of safety, the housing of the printer must not be opened by the user. If technical faults appear or if the printing unit or power line fuse has to be
changed, please notify your responsible METTLER TOLEDO service.
• The LC-P45 Printer may be used only indoors and on no account in hazardous areas.
• The electronics of the LC-P45 Printer are protected against the ingress of splashing water and dust.
However, as the printer housing is not tight the printer should not be used in the presence of liquids.
• Comply with cleaning instructions (see page 25), protect power plug against wet conditions.
• Never open the printer housing. Should you ever have problems with your printer, please contact your
responsible METTLER TOLEDO dealer.
2.2
Inserting the batteries
Two batteries are provided and supply the clock and the memories for the variable settings of the printer
when it is not connected to the power supply.
Please note: To avoid loss of any printer settings you may have made, attach the LC-P45 Printer to the
power supply when changing the batteries.
• Lift up paper cover and pull paper backward out of the printing unit
• Open battery compartment and insert batteries

Maintenance, Service and Cleaning
Under normal ambient conditions, the LC-P45 Printer requires practically no maintenance thanks to its
rugged construction. The METTLER TOLEDO service department is available should servicing be required.
Please ask your responsible METTLER TOLEDO dealer for details.
Cleaning
As the printer housing is made of top grade, resistant materials, all commercially available cleaning
agents may be used.

• Repeat calibration
------ Timeout ------
• Entry incomplete, menu not ended,
balance has not sent any weight value in last 30 s
• Pause before completion of function must not be longer than 30 s, move balance to more stable location

• Replace batteries; message repeated approx. every 2 hours
------ Overflow ----- • Number of samples for multiplication
exceeded
---- Input error -----
• Range of values exceeded
----- Unit error -----
• Different units in totalization, statistics or multiplication
ES • Syntax error (error message of balance), balance does not understand LC-P45 instruction
EL
• Logistical error (error message of balance), balance can not execute LC-P45 instruction
27
• Repeat entry

7.2
Printer test
The LC-P45 is provided with a self-test which automatically prints out its character set. This allows easier
recognition of a possible malfunction of the printing unit.
• Switch on LC-P45
+
• Switch off LC-P45
• Switch on LC-P45 and at the same time press and hold the feed key for a few seconds
• Terminate the printout by switching off the LC-P45

I/O interfaces
The LC-P45 has a LocalCAN and an RS-232-C interface for the attachment of METTLER TOLEDO instruments and peripherals.
One or other can be used, but if both are connected only the LocalCAN is active.
LocalCAN interface
• Bus interface with 2 4-pin looped sockets for the attachment of balances/scales/instruments and
peripherals.
• No transmission parameters need be adapted.
RS-232-C interface
• 9-pin male connector (pin assignment as IBM laptop)
• Matching to other device (transmission parameters) in the menu; see page 11
LocalCAN RS-232-C
• The handshake lines are active when "hardware" has been selected in menu item HANDSHAKE
• The standard cable 00229029 has no handshake lines
Connection example
A scale and a PC are attached to the LC-P45 via the LocalCAN bus.

General remarks
•
With
or
1
F
only stable weight values can be printed out; to print out unstable values,
set the balance to "send all" and give the print command with its PRINT key.
•
Do not set the balance to "send all" for statistics, totalization and multiplication.
•
If the PRINT key of the balance is pressed, the weight will be printed out without record header
