The actual calibration would be done on the scale, not in the PLC. There could be ways to trigger a calibration mode from the PLC, but that would depend on the make and model of the scale. More information about the scale would be helpful. Such as manufacturer and model number.

“Now will come the nay-sayers with all the reasons why you shouldn't do this. Some of them are teachers, and some of us are doers. Besides, you have got to let the smoke out of this equipment every now and then, or it starts to clog up the chimney.”
