  • Increase the separation between the equipment.
  • Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the other device(s) is connected.
  • Consult Customer Service or a field service technician for help.



This scale uses highly sophisticated microprocessor technology. Each precision scale is designed to provide accurate, reliable, and repeatable weight measurements. In addition, each scale is designed to provide the user with features that make the weighing process simple, fast, and convenient.

This scale uses motion-sensing weighing technology to determine a moving patient’s actual weight.

The 2600KL/2610KL displays weight in pounds (Ib) or kilograms (kg). Refer to page 10 to learn more about configuring the weight-measuring unit setting. The 2600KG/2610KG displays weight in kilograms only.

This scale features a pivoting display head for privacy and easy operator reading. The scale has 4 built-in wheels (including 2 casters) for easy mobility. Each scale can be powered using an AC adapter (ADPT30 included) or by 6 D batteries (not included).

This scale has been factory-calibrated and does not require calibration before use. Calibration of your scale can be performed using calibrated kilogram (kg) or pound (b) weight standards. The minimum calibration is 200 lb / 100 kg. Maximum calibration weight is 1000 lb / 454 kg. The required calibration standard will be the Unit of Measure (UOM) for which the scale is configured. KG models can only be calibrated in kilograms. If Everlock™ is engaged the scale can only be calibrated in the locked unit of measure.

Only weights certified and traceable to national standards should be used for calibration.

Always ensure that the scale is returned to the correct UOM after scale calibration.

  6. The display will show the “Zeroing Scale” as it calculates the zero value. Do not touch the scale during the zeroing process.
  7. When the zeroing process is complete the display will prompt for entry of the calibration weight. The minimum calibration is 200 Ib / 100 kg. Maximum calibration weight is 1000 Ib / 454 kg. Calibration weight can be adjusted in 10 lb or 10 kg increments. Press Enter when the calibration weight is set.
  8. The display will prompt for the calibration weights to be placed on the platform. Press Enter after calibration weights are placed on the platform.
  9. The display will show “Calibrating” during the calibration process.
  10. If calibration is successful, the display will show “Calibration Complete” with a 4-digit calibration count.
  11. If calibration fails, the display will show an error message that the entered calibration weight and the certified weights do not match. The display will then revert to the set calibration weight screen for the entry of calibration weight.
