The Planck-Balance 1 (PB1) has been developed in a collaboration between the Physikalisch- Technische Bundesanstalt and the Technische Universität Ilmenau. It is a small-size Kibble balance aimed to calibrate E1 mass standards for a mass range from 1 mg to 1 kg. This paper presents its principle and some preliminary investigations.
