BT2-Series Manual

Thank you for purchasing the American Weigh BT2-Series digital pocket scale. Please read all operating instructions carefully before use. This electronic scale is a precision instrument. With normal care and proper treatment, it will provide years of reliable service. Never load the scale with more than the maximum capacity. Overloading the scale will permanently damage it! Avoid any exposure to extreme heat or cold. Your scale works better when operated at normal room temperature. Always allow the scale to acclimate to normal room temperature for at least one hour before use.

Give your scale sufficient warm up time. Usually 30-60 seconds before calibration to give the internal components a chance to stabilize.

Keep your scale in a clean environment. Dust, dirt, moisture, vibration, air currents and a close distance to other electronic equipment can all cause an adverse effect on the reliability and accuracy of your scale.

Handle with care. Gently apply all items to be weighed onto tray top. Although this scale is designed to be quite durable, try to avoid rough treatment as this may permanently damage the internal sensor.

Avoid shaking, dropping or otherwise shocking the scale. This is a precision instrument and must be handled with extreme care. Only operate the scale on a stable, vibration free surface.


Place the scale on a flat and level surface.

Note: This scale features a removable protective cover which can also be used as a weighing tray. To remove the tray, flip the hinge release switch on the side of the scale.

1. Press the [ I/O ] key.

2. Wait until "0.0g" or "0.00g" is displayed.

3. Place the object(s) to be weighed on the weighing platform.

4. Using the [ M ] key, you can switch between weighing units.


Using Tare, you can subtract the weight of a container.

1. Turn the scale on as described above.

2. Place the "tare item" on the platform such as a tray or container.

3. Press [ T ] and wait until "0.0g" or 0.00g" is displayed.

4. You can now add items to the tray or container.


Calibration is NOT required before first use. Only calibrate if scale is not weighing properly.

BT2-500 - Use a 500g calibration weight

BT2-201 - Use a 200g calibration weight

1. Turn the scale on as described above.

2. Once the scale is at zero, press and hold the [ M ] key for about 3 seconds. The display will show "CAL".

3. Press the [ M ] key again, and the display will show the required calibration weight (ie 500g or 200g). If you wish to use a 100g calibration weight instead, press the T key. The display will change to show 100g.

4. Place the calibration weight on the center of the platform and wait for the display to show "PASS".

5. The scale will return to normal weighing mode. Calibration is complete!


The primary reasons for inaccuracy or malfunction are low batteries, incorrect calibration, overload or operating on an unstable surface. Please keep this in mind and maintain and operate your scale properly. This scale is a precise instrument and must be handled with the utmost care and caution.
