In the YouTube video above we cover the "Weighing" mode and the different configurations choices. Learn more about the "zero" & "tare" icon on the touchscreen display. We'll show you how simple it is to change the weight unit (g > oz > dwt > lb etc) and how you can drop the last significant digit to increase even faster stable weighing results. Although the laboratory balance we use for this demonstration is the Sartorius Secura225D-1S semi microbalance the weighing functionality is the same for all the Practum, Quintix and Secura models.
When you purchase the Sartorius Practum precision scales with 1 gram, 0.1 gram or 0.01 gram readability you have a large weighing platform measuring 180 mm or 7.0 inches in diameter.

Setting up this digital scale is easy - Install the shield disk and turn this counterclockwise until it is securely in place. Next place the pan support, weighing pan and level the balance using the two leveling feet.
There is a port for a below-balance weighing located on the bottom of the balance. To use the underhook - lift cover plate from the bottom of the balance and attach a wire to the sample and hang it on the notched hook.
Plugging the AC adapter and turn on the balance you'll see the power-up display, then you see the "leveling" screen to remind you to the scale. The balance must be level to ensure precise weighing results. Leveling the balance compensates for slant or unevenness at the place of installation by twisting the front leveling feet of the balance.
