How To Calibrate Your Eltra 84 Balance

Here is a quick guide on how to calibrate your Eltra 84 Balance.



Calibration/adjustment can only be performed when
– there is no load on the balance,
– the balance is tared,
– the internal signal is stable.

If these conditions are not met, an error message is displayed. Otherwise, the weight
required for calibration/adjustment is displayed.

You can use the test weight provided for calibration/adjustment; however, we
recommend using a weight of a higher accuracy class as listed below.
