Calibration/adjustment - Sartorius Factory Series FC06BBE-S Operating Instructions Manual

Industrial weighing tech.

Calibration is the determination
of the difference between the weight
readout and the true weight (mass)
of a sample. Calibration does
not entail making any changes within
the scale.
Adjustment is the correction of this
difference between the measured
value displayed and the true
weight (mass) of the sample, or the
reduction of the difference to an
allowable level within maximum
permissible error limits.
Using Verified Scales as Legal
Measuring Instruments in the EU*:
Before using your scale as
a legal measuring instrument, you
must perform "internal calibration"
at the place of installation after
the warmup period.
* including the Signatories of
the Agreement on the European
Economic Area

External calibration can
be performed
– using a pre-set weight value

The adjustment can be performed
