1. UNPACKING OF THE MAIN BALANCE


Cut open tape protecting the box. Take out the balance of factory package and
place it on a stable base. Take out all components and assemble them
according to below drawings:

Fig 1. The components installation for the balance with pan size 165 x 165mm

For balances 300 x 300mm or 410 x 410mm put on the pan and set the scale
working according to the chapter 2 of this manual.

Fig 1-1. The balance with pan size 300 x 300mm

Fig 1-2. The balance with pan size 410 x 410mm

Balances are supplied from 230 V AC / 11 V AC adapters. Connect to the


power source and turn on the balance.

2. INTENDED USE
Counting labelling balances are designed for COUNTING PIECES OF THE
SAME MASS. Connection with label printer enables labels printing.
Balances are equipped with data bases of operators, assortments, labels and
contractors. Connected with bar code scanner searching out assortment by bar
code is possible.

Software of counting set makes possible:


-

determining mass of single detail on main balance with highest


accuracy of weighing
owing to application of graphic display, balance software is userfriendly
possibility of application PC type PS/2 keyboard simplifies moving in
software menu and data accessing
printing basic labels, cumulative labels, cc labels (cumulative labels of
cumulative ones)
cooperation with barcode scanner
cooperation with additional balance platform

3. GETTING STARTED
3.1 Conditions of appropriate use
9
9
9
9
9
9
9

place balance on a stable and flat table or free from vibrations


balance should not be exposed to draughts and sudden air movements
balance should be placed in room of stable temperature and humidity
balance should be placed far from heat sources
temperature of the room should be +15C +30C (for WLT balances)
if static electricity influence balances, indications, its base should be
earthed. Earthling clamp is in the back part of balance base
balances should be levelled according to a level condition indicator to
guarantee the appropriate weighing accuracy

3.2 Time of warming-up


Before performing measurements wait until balance reaches temperature
stabilization. It is so-called warm-up time. It takes about 15 minutes.
For weighing instruments that have been stored in low temperatures (e.g.
during winter) the warm-up time is about 2 hours.
The indications of display may change during temperature stabilization.

3.3. Balance levelling


To do the measurements correctly level the scale. Take the pan off carefully
(without rapid pulls and hits) and turn the legs in order to level the balance, air
bubble should be place in the centre of level condition indicator.

Fig. 2. Balance levelling


1- correct levelling
2- incorrect levelling

4. UNDER-FLOOR WEIGHING
For scales with 165 x 165mm platforms can weigh underslinged loads (hanged
under the balance floor). In case of using this function:
remove the hole plug made of plastic (placed in the balance floor),
a suspension can be seen in the hole. It is standard equipment,
Mount an appropriate hook for hanging loads (hook is non-standard
equipment).
1. The suspense cannot be rotated, revolved or tampered in any way,
because of direct connection with the weighing mechanism of the
balance.
2. All the additional elements like pan, string etc. should be tarred (TARE).
3. Balances with 300 x 300mm or 410 x 410mm platforms do not have the
under-floor weighing mechanism.

Zeroing of indication is possible only in range of 2% of maximum capacity
currently displayed balance/platform. If zeroed value is bigger than 2% of
maximum capacity display will indicate error message and return to displaying
previous value for main balance or displayed mass will not change.
21

Notice:
Balance zeroing determines a new zero point treated by balance as precise
zero. Zeroing is possible only in stable states of the indication.

8. BALANCE CALIBRATION
To ensure very high accuracy of weighing, periodical entering to memory
correction factor of balance indication referring to standard mass is required; it
is so called balance calibration. In WLT balances it is inaccessible for user. The
procedure of calibration can be performed only by authorized services of the
manufacturer.

bad (vibrations, draughts) filter should be set as slow or as very slow.
Effectiveness of filter operating is different for weighing range. Filter works
slower in time of reaching the final result, however stronger when mass gets
to set range of filter operating (parameter range of filter operating available only
in service menu user do not have access to it).

11.2. Median filter setting


Task of median filter is to eliminate single big disturbances. By setting digital
value determines speed of filter operating. For zero option filter operating is off.

26

11.3. Setting the time of display refreshment


This parameter determines how often indication of display is refreshed. It is
realized by comparing what in given moment is on the display with information
sent by balance processor about state of weighed mass placed on the pan.
For higher refreshment parameters value display do not indicate intermediate
unstable mass indication by placing and removing the load on balance pan,
however for low values all changes of mass during weighing are visible e.g.
this enables dosing loose or liquid materials. Time of refreshment is set in
seconds.

11.4. Setting of autozero operating


To ensure accurate balance indications software AUTOZERO function was
introduced. Task of this function is automatic control and correction of balance
zero indication.
When function is active comparison of successive results takes place in
declared distance of time e.g. every 1 s. If these result differ in value lower than
declared range of AUTOZERO e.g. 1 interval, balance will automatically zero
and zero indication
will be
and markers of stable result
displayed.
When AUTOZERO function is on every measurement starts from precise zero.
There are some special cases when this function interrupts in measurements.
Example of it can be very slow placing the load on the pan (e.g. pouring the
load) in such case system of zero indication correction can also correct
indication of real mass of load. AUTOZERO can be switch on or off in
parameter P4 06 main platform 07 additional platform.

11.5. Last digit


To ensure appropriate comfort of operating with balance user determines
(depending on needs) if last digit of mass indication is to be displayed and in
which states of balance. One of below values can be set:
- 0
never
- 1
always
- 2
when stab
For verified balance option 1 always is set (without possibility of changing)

27

11.6. Negative
Possibility to change displaying mode negative effect (dark background, light
signs).

11.7. Two platforms


Setting the parameter to YES causes displaying on the display results of
weighing from both platforms at the same time.

11.8. Automatic tare


This function is useful for quick determining net mass of weighed goods when
tare values are different for each weighings (see chapter 7.3. of this manual).

21. BARCODES
21.1. General description
Barcodes are the most popular form of automatic identification of articles. They
are used to describe documents and products to allow automatic loading data
to computers. Barcode scanners are used to interpret barcodes and send
information to external devices. For receiving overprints of barcodes are used
label printers. (e.g. CITIZEN, ZEBRA)
There are many barcode types with deferent information content. Barcodes are
graphical interpretation of information in dark and white strips of different width.
The main objective of using codes is speeding up and increasing faithfulness of
read information, which substituted manual entering of information.
The number of industries which adapt barcode technologies is continuously
growing. More and more firms build they automatic identification system on the
basis of barcode scanners.

57

Scanning technology for barcodes reading:


laser longer scanning range (e.g. QS-6000+, Cubit)
diode durable, faster operation (e.g. Dioder, QS-2500)

21.2. EAN code


One of the most popular barcodes are EAN (European Article Numbering),
which were approved for common use in retail trade in 1976. American
equivalent is UPC.
EAN code types:
EAN-13 (zawiera 12 cyfr danych i jedn cyfr kontroln)
EAN-8 (7 cyfr danych i 1 cyfra kontrolna).
EAN-128 (digital version of CODE 128)
First 3 digits signify a country (e.g. 590 - Poland), with the exception of codes
that starts with the digit 2 this codes are used to mark articles if different
weight and dimensions especially packed in shops. EAN 13 is used together
with ISSN (International Standard Serial Number), for newspapers and
magazines. 3-digit country code is substituted by 977.

21.3. Other barcodes

Code 39 Alphanumerical barcode with variable length. It allows to us


43 different characters; each character comprises 9 elements (dark
and white strips).
Code 128 Alphanumerical barcode with variable length devised to
expand Code 39 possibilities.
Interleaved 2 of 5 Numerical code with variable length (always even).
High density digits coded in pairs "with interleave" dark strip code
one digit and white (separable) the second.

21.4. Advantages of using barcodes

Less errors during data input in comparison to manual inscribing


Quick data loading direct input to external devices
Costs more efficient client service, simpler reserves management,
shorter reaction time, lower level of reserves.

58

Barcode technology allows to:

Monitor commercial transactions,


survey stored reserves
supervise warehouse transactions collecting, decomposing,
palletization etc.
shorten time of loading and unloading goods
monitor production in real time
monitor reserves

21.5 The usage of EAN-128 barcode in scales.


The EAN-128 barcode standard has been created to provide a worldwide
standard for exchanging simple data between enter prices. Other codes include
data without marking what they include. EAN-128 includes data with all
information about them.
For example, when coding 17,21 kg as 1721 an application does not know if it
is a price, time or mass. Even if the application can identify this field as weight
it has no information about unit and point (1721 kg or 17.21 g).
It is important that everybody can decode the information without any additional
modifications. EAN-128 standard solves this problem. It includes a list of
"Application Identifiers". Every identifier carries a message to inform a system
about the data type and format. E.g. 310 identifier indicates for the net mass in
kg. The next digit in this identifier outlines the point position, then the following
6 digits outline a weight.
Application Identifiers.

26. TRANSMISSION POTOCOL


26.1. Some basic information

The communication protocol has been designed for exchanging information


between RADWAG scales and external devices via RS-232C.
The communication protocol has been designed in the form of request
response messages.
Scales always respond after receiving a command or generated
automatically by the program after completing the command.
Using the set of commands you can fetch some information from the scale
or influence the operation of the device. E.g. It is possible to:
Identify the scale
Collect weighing results
Keyboard control
Display control
Changes of variables
Other

External software have to assure not sending the next command without
receiving the answer for the previous one.

26.2. Transmission parameters

Scales are equipped in RS 232 (bidirectional) and RS485 (one


direction from the scale to an external device).
Possibile interface settings:

26.3. Transmission characteristics


Scales with MCB X.XX program use two different ways of transmission:
Continuous transmission or automatic printout (RS 232 and RS 485)
of request-response messages (request messages via RS 232 and
response messages via RS 232 or RS 485)

26.4. Continuous transmission/automatic printout


26.4.1. Types of printouts
There are 3 types of automatic printouts in the scale provided it is not a retail
scale and the DRH parameter in factory parameters is not enabled.
Notice:
If the parameter DRH is set to 1 this parameter is locked for edition, but it is
possible to start continuous transmission by using a RS232 command.

Description
Request-response
Continuous transmission
Continuous transmission with the time pause between the
subsequent printouts. The pause is set in the next
parameter in the menu.
Printouts are automatically generated after each stable
measurement over min. mass (next parameter).
The next printout can be generated when the result
achieves the value below the Min. mass and again over it.

77

26.4.2. Continuous transmission


Results are transmitted in basic units. Transmission can be disabled/enabled
using RS232 command:
C1 CR LF Switch on continuous transmission in basic unit
C0 CR LF Switch off continuous transmission in basic unit
or using the parameter: settings/ RS-232/Aut. printout/continuous
The frame length is constant (21 characters).
Frame format:
[SI] [space] [stability] [space] [sign] [mass] [space] [unit] [CR LF]

Stability character [space] if stable


[?] if not stable
[^] if an indication over the range
[v] if an indication below the range
sign [space] for positive values or [-] for negative values
mass 9 characters justified to the right
unit 3 characters justified to the left

26.4.3. Continuous transmission with pauses


Continuous transmission with pauses allows users to determine the time
interval between the subsequent frames in the parameter interval.
His type of printouts can be enabled only in parameters: Settings/RS-232/ Aut.
printouts/with interv.
The frame format is the same as in basic simple transmission.
The interval is set in: Setting/RS-232/Interval

26.4.4. Stable result transmission


The scale automatically generates after each stable result separated by a
stable result below the Min. mass that can be set in parameters.
The intended use of this printout is for slip printers so it doesnt have a starting
characters and the length can vary from 18 to 20 characters.
78

Standard length is 18 characters, but if the parameter digit marking has been
enabled, the length increases to 20 characters, because additional brackets
are printed e.g.:
383 kg
38[3] kg
3[83] kg
It can be set in :
Settings/Factory/digit marking
Frame format:
[space] [sign] [mass] [space] [unit] [CR LF]

sign [space] for positive values or [-] for negative values


mass 9 characters justified to the right
unit 3 characters justified to the left
This type of printouts can be enabled in parameters:
Settings/RS-232/Aut. print/when stab.
Setting the Min. mass is possible in:
Settings/RS-232/Min. mass
Notice:
The result is printed in current unit.

In any continuous transmission results are printed in basic units. In frames
generated after pressing print key results are printed in current units.

26.5. Commands and responses syntax


26.5.1. Commands syntax
All commands are terminated with CR,LF (ASCII 13 dec,10 dec)
Commands can include a parameter or not
Overall format:
ID CR LF
example of a command without a parameter
ID _ PARAMETER CR LF
example of a command with a parameter
where:
ID command 1-4 characters
_ - space (ASCII 32 decimal)

PARAMETER string of ASCII characters. Texts have to be inscribed


within a quotation marks.
Spaces are not elements of the syntax placed only for better
readability.

80

26.5.2. Response syntax


Response can include parameters or not and additionally can signalize errors.
After receiving an appropriate command scales response immediately with:
Immediate response
Acknowledge of receiving a command
Accepting of a received command
Not accepting of a received command
Overall format:
ID _ STATUS CR LF
- example of a command without a parameter
ID _ STATUS _ PARAMETER CR LF - example of a command with a
parameter
E S CR LF
- error detected or not listed command
where:
ID command 1-4 characters
_ - space (ASCII 32 dec)
STATUS one character that outlines the response status or a status
of the scale.
Different possibilities:
A in case of commands that cannot be completed immediately command accepted
I correct command but cannot be executed at that moment
D in case of commands that cannot be completed immediately command completed
E error of execution of a command e.g. incorrect parameter value.
Additionally when the parameter is a weighings result, STATUS can
be:
_ - (space ASCII 32 dec) stable result
? non-stable result
^ - error result over the range
v error result below the range
