    6.0  OPERATION 
    6.1 ZEROIN\f THE DISPL\bY  
    ·  You can press the  [Z/T] key at any time to set the display to zero. 
    This  will  usually  be  when  the  platform  is  empty.  When  the  zero 
    point is obtained the display will show an indicator for zero. 
    ·  The  scale  has  an  automatic  re-zeroing  function  to  account  for 
    minor  drifting  or  accumulation  of  material  on  the  platform. 
    However you may need to press the  [Z/T] key to re zero the scale 
    if small amounts of weight are shown when the platform is empty. 
    6.2  T\bRIN\f 
    ·  Zero  the  scale  by  pressing  the  [Z/T]  key  if  necessary.  The 
    “ ZERO”  indicator will be ON. 
    ·  Place a container on the platform and a value for its weight will be

    ·  Press the  [Z/T]  key  to tare  the  scale. The  weight  is deducted  and 
    stored  as  the  tare  value  leaving  zero  on  the  display.  The  “ NET” 
    indicator will be ON and as a product is added only the net weight 
    of  the  product  will  be  shown.  The  scale  could  be  tared  a  second 
    time  if  another  type  of  product  was  to  be  added  to  the  first  one. 
    Again only the weight that is added after taring will be displayed. 
    ·  When  the  container  is  removed  a  negative  value  will  be  shown.  If 
    the  scale  was  tared  just  before  removing  the  container  this  value 
    is  the  gross  weight  which  includes  the  container  and  the  entire 
    product  it  contains.  The  “ZERO”   indicator  will  be  on  to  indicate 
    that  the  platform  is  back  to  the  same  condition  as  it  was  when 
    zero was last set. 
    ·  To delete a Tare value, press  [Z/T] when the pan is empty. 
    6.3  WEI\fHIN\f \b S\bMPLE 
    To  determine  the  weight  of  a  sample,  first  tare  the  empty  container  if  it  is  to 
    be used and then place the sample in the container. The display will show the 
    net weight of the sample and the unit of weight currently in use.

    6.4  P\bRTS
    If parts counting is enabled, See section 7.4 in the full manual, it is possible to 
    count  parts  using  a  sample  of  the  parts  to  determine  an  average  piece 
    ·  If  using  an  empty  container,  place  the  container  on  the  top  pan 
    and  press  [Z/T] to  zero  the  display.  Press  the  [PCS]  key  to  enter 
    parts counting mode.  
    ·  The scale will show “ P      10”. Change the sample size to the desired 
    quantity  by  pressing  the  [Pcs/]  key.  It  will  cycle  through  the 
    options: 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and back to 10. 
    ·  Place  the  nominated  sample  size  into  the  container  and  press 
    [Z/T] .  The  sample  number  should  match  the  sample  amount 
    options  available  for  parts  counting,  i.e.,  10,  20,  50,  100  or  200 
    ·  The  display  will  now  show  the  amount  of  parts  in  the  container, 
    and as more parts are added the display will increase to show the 
    number of parts in the container at that time. (Pcs).  
    Pressing the  [Unit/] key will display the net weight (pcs and kg), pressing it 
    a  second  time  will  display  the  unit  weight  (g/pcs),  and  the  third  time  will 
    display the count again (pcs).   
    ·  Press  the  [Pcs/]  key  to  return  to  normal  weighing.  Press  the 
    [Pcs/ ] key again to start counting a different sample. 
    6.5  CHECK-WEI\fHIN\f  
    Check-weighing is a procedure where the LED’s come on (and if enabled, an 
    alarm  to  sound)  when  the  weight  on  the  scale  meets  values  stored  in 
    memory.  The  memory  holds  the  last  values  for  a  high  and  a  low  limit  when 
    the  power  is  turned  off.  The  user  can  set  either  one  limit  or  both,  see  the  full 
    version of the user manual for details of the check weighing function.

    The  scale  can  be  set  to  animal  (dynamic)  weighing  for  weighing  any  items 
    that are unstable or may move. See Section 7.4 of the full version of the user 
    manual for complete details. 
    Pressing the   [Func/C] key during normal operation  allows the user to access 
    the  parameters  for  customizing  the  scale.  The  parameters  are  split  into  4 
    1. Check weighing parameters,  
    2. Percentage and Animal Weighing Functions 
    3. RS-232 parameters  
    4. Scale parameters 
    ·  When  [Func/C]  is pressed the display will first show “ Fun\b  1” for Check

    ·  The  scales  can  be  operated  from  the  battery  if  desired.  The 
    battery life can be up to 70 hours depending on the load cells and 
    how the backlight is used.  
    ·  A  battery  symbol  is  shown  on  the  display  which  indicates  the 
    current  charge  of  the  battery,  3  bars  means  fully  charged.  When 
    just  the  outline  of  the  battery  and  no  bars  are  visible  the  battery 
    needs to be re charged. 
    ·  To  charge  the  battery,  simply  plug  the  adaptor  into  the  mains 
    power,  and  also  into  the  input  connector  on  the  rear  of  the 
    Indicator  marked  DC  12V.  The  scale  does  not  need  to  be  turned 
    ·  The battery should be charged for 12 hours to reach full capacity. 
    ·  Near  the  display  is  an  LED  to  indicate  the  status  of  battery 
    charging.  When  the  scale  is  plugged  into  the  mains  power  the 
    internal battery will be charged. If the LED is green the battery has 
    a full charge. If it is red the battery is nearly discharged and yellow 
    indicates the battery is being charged. 
    9.0  RS-232 INTERFACE 
    The  ABK/AFK  is  supplied  with  a  bi-directional  RS-232  interface  as  standard. 
    The  scale  when  connected  to  a  printer  or  computer  outputs  the  weight  with 
    the selected weighing unit through the RS-232 interface.

    key of the PC after each command.   
      Tares the scale to display the net weight. This is the same as 
      Sets  the  zero  point  for  all  subsequent  weighing.  The  display 
    shows zero. 
     Prints  the  results  to  a  PC  or  printer  using  the  RS-232 
    interface. It also adds the value to the accumulation memory 
    if the accumulation function is not set to automatic. 
    The indicator is supplied with drivers to control external relays. The drivers 
    could be used to control a number of different relays depending upon the 
    users needs. The relay drivers are isolated outputs requiring the use of an 
    external power supply and the relay option kit.     
    See of the full version of the user manual for complete details.

    11.0  CALIBRATION 
    The  scale  can  be  calibrated  using  the  following  procedure.  To  enter  this 
    procedure  it  is  necessary  to  use  Func  4  which  is  accessible  using  the 
    [Func/C]   key  as  described  in  section  7.4  in  the  full  manual,  or  by  using  the 
    passcode access as described in section 12.0. 
    The  scales  calibrate  using  either  metric  or  pound  weights  depending  on  the 
    weighing  unit  being  used  before  calibration.  The  display  will  show  either  kg 
    or lb to identify the weights expected. 
    ·   Enter  the  calibration  section  using  Func  4,  C8  CAL  or  using  the 
    passcode as described in section 12.0.    
    ·  The display will show  un\foAd. 
    ·  Remove  any  weight  from  platform  and  when  the  stable  symbol  is 
    on press  [Z/T]. 
    ·  The  display  will  show   \fd  then  “ 0000XX”  which  shows  the  last 
    calibration  weight  used.  Place  this  calibration  weight  on  the  scale 
    and  press  the  [Z/T] key.  If  the  weight  you  put  on  the  scale  does 
    not match the value displayed, press the  [Func/C] key to clear the 
    vale then use the  [Unit/] key and  [Pcs/] key to set the correct 
    value. When it is correct press  [Z/T]. 
    ·  If  the  calibration  is  acceptable  the  scale  will  run  a  self-test  during 
    which  the  calibration  weight  should  be  removed.  If  an  error 
    message  “ FAi\f  \f”  is  shown  try  calibration  again  as  a  disturbance 
    may have prevented a successful calibration.   
    After  calibration  the  scale  should  be  checked  to  verify  the  calibration  is 
    correct.  If  necessary  repeat  the  calibration  making  sure  that  the  scale  is 
    stable before accepting any weight.
