i500 Manual & Calibration guide


All safety messages are identified by the words "WARNING" and "CAUTION". These words mean the following:

?!WARNING Important information to alert you to a situation that might cause serious injury and damage to your property if instructions are not followed.
?!CAUTION Important information that tells how to prevent damage to the equipment.

When using the i500/i1200, the following safety precautions should always be followed.

Use only the correct AC adaptor with the scale. Other adaptors may cause permanent electrical damage.


Avoid placing the scale in direct sunlight, this may cause discoloration or malfunction.

Replace all batteries at the same time – Do not replace only a portion of the 6 batteries as this may cause a malfunction.

If the scale is not to be used for a long period of time, remove all batteries from the battery compartment to avoid leakage which may cause damage to this scale.

Avoid overloading the scale, as this may cause permanent damage.

Keep the scale away from water – this scale is not water resistant. Shock, injury and electrical damage can occur if used in a wet location!

Matter charged with static electricity could affect accuracy. Discharge all static electricity. As example, one method is to use electrification prevention spray, and spray it on both side of weighing platform.

When to calibrate - calibration is RARELY required.
Calibration may be required when the scale is first set up for use, or if the scale is moved to a different altitude or gravitation. This is necessary because the weight of a mass in one location is not necessarily the same in another location. Also, with time and use, mechanical deviations can occur.

How to calibrate
**for the i500 you must have an accurate 500 gram weight or a combination of weights that equals 500 grams in order to calibrate.
**for the i1200 you must have an accurate 1200 gram weight or a combination of weights that equals 1200 grams in order to calibrate**
1. Before entering calibration mode, press [ON/OFF] to turn the power on and wait for 5 minutes to allow the scale to warm up.
2. Enter calibration mode
Press [ON/OFF] to turn the power off. Press and hold [ZERO] first, then Press [ON/OFF] while keeping the [ZERO] button depressed, the display will show the A/D value (a series of random numbers).
3. Calibration by the weight
Wait for the stable indicator to be displayed, Press [SET] the display will show "00SAVE", after 2 seconds, the display will return to the A/D value.
4. Place the correct calibration weight on platform (500g for the i500 and 1200g for the i1200). After the stable indicator is displayed, press [SET], the display will show "00SAVE" and calibration is finished.
5. Press [ON/OFF], turn off the power, press [ON/OFF] turn on the power again, place the weight(s) on the platform to make sure that weighing is correct, if not, repeat steps 2-5.
6. Return to weighing mode
Press [ON/OFF] to turn the power off. Press [ON/OFF] again to turn on the power and return the scale to weighing mode.

2.Setting up the i500

Avoid placing the scale in direct sunlight, this may cause discoloration or malfunction. Place your i500/i1200 on a firm weighing table so that the scale is level. (The scale will not perform accurately when it is not level.) Make sure there are absolutely NO air currents or vibrations. They can cause inaccurate readings.

Place the scale on a firm surface that is flat and level for accurate weighing.


Before weighing

A 5 minute warm up time is required after turning the power on so that the scale will function properly and accurately.

EEEE: Overload
: Low battery

Calibration may be required before weighing.
Calibration is rarely needed. Read "CALIBRATION" first and if necessary, calibrate your scale for accurate weighing.

Weighing procedures
