10.4.1 Parts Counting
This allows the user to weigh a sample of parts to compute an average unit weight and
then determine the number of items being weighed by dividing the net weight by the unit
weight value. The result is always a whole number of parts.
The balance will have a pre-set number of parts to be used as a sample. These values are
10, 25 , 50 or 100 items.
Press [Mode] and cycle through the available options until “
PARTSPARTS PARTS” is displayed. Now enter
parts counting mode by pressing [Select].
Press the [Up] or [Down] key to select the sample size, “ SP
XX PCS” (where XX= 10, 25 ,
50 , 100 ) then press [Select] to confirm.
When “ Ld
XX PCS” is shown, place XX number of items on the pan and press [Select] to
compute the average piece weight. Display will indicate the total reference weight in the
last selected unit, and then show “XX
PCS” sounding a beep.
The “Parts” symbol will still be shown at the top of the display to indicate that the balance is
in the parts counting mode.
Remove the sample and display will show “ 0
Place an unknown quantity of parts on the pan. The balance will then compute the number
of parts based on the average piece weight. The display will show the result in number of
pieces. This will be an integer value in the format “XX
PCS”. Pressing the [Unit] key will
cycle the display between piece weight, current total weight, and current number of pieces
on the pan.
The [Print] key is lit, indicating that print output to a connected device is available. Print
output will be “ XX pcs” (where XX is the quantity of pieces currently on the pan) or “ Unit
wt : XX.X g ” or “Total wt : : XX.X g ” depending on whether quantity, piece weight
or total weight is being displayed on screen.
To count another item of a different weight, press [Mode] and continue as before.
Checks will be made to determine that the weight of the reference parts is large enough for
reasonably accurate counting (the weight of each piece must be > 1 division of the
To return to normal weighing from parts counting mode, press [Mode] followed by one of
