Stability Range
The stability range specifies how much a displayed weight may change (in graduations), while the stability indicator remains ON. When the displayed weight changes beyond the allowable range, the stability indicator turns OFF. A value of 0.5, 1, or 3 graduations may be selected. How Stability Range Affects Operation: Higher values increase the response time of the indicator but permit the displayed weight to fluctuate within a greater range. Lower values decrease response time but limit the allowable range of fluctuation in displayed weight. In either case, the stability indicator is ON and the displayed weight is considered stable as long as it is within the selected range. When the RS232 interface is configured to print stable data only, the stability range also governs the data output. Displayed data will only be output if it is within the selected range. To select a stability level: Enter the desired level using the nuENTER meric keypad, then press ENTER to

return to the scale submenu. LFT NOTE: Initially set to .5 when LFT is set to ON.

Auto-Zero Tracking
Auto-Zero tracking minimizes the effects of temperature changes and shift on the zero reading. Using this parameter, you select a threshold level (in graduations), which the I150 will consider to be a valid change in load. Selections are .5, 1, and 3 graduations. OFF disables the feature. To select a value or disable the feature: Press UPUP or DOWN to display the
ENTER desired selection, then press ENTER

to return to the scale submenu. LFT NOTE: Initially set to .5 when LFT is set to ON. May be changed to 1 or 3 for special applications: Normally set to .5 for bench and counter scales; 3 for vehicle scales; 1 for other scales.

Custom Unit Conversion Factor


If you need to display weight measurements in a unit other than LB, KG or OZ, this feature enables you to create your own unit of measure. You enter a conversion factor which the indicator will use to convert the calibration unit to the desired unit of measure. There are two examples at the end of this section which illustrate how to determine conversion factors. Once your conversion factor is determined, use the following procedure to enter it. LFT NOTE: Not available when LFT is set to ON.

Conversion Factor Examples


Custom unit conversion factors are defined in terms of the current calibration unit: 1 Custom Unit = Conv. Factor x Cal. Unit Example 1: TONS Assume you wish to display weight in Tons and the I150 is calibrated in pounds. One ton = 2000 lbs, therefore the conversion factor is 2000. To enter the conversion factor, it must first be converted to scientific notation: .2 is the mantissa (between 0.1 and 1), and 4 is the exponent (power of 10) Using this conversion factor, the I150 will display 1 custom unit for every 2000 lbs on the load receiver. Example 2: OUNCES Assume you wish to display weight in ounces and the I150 is calibrated in pounds. One oz = 0.0625 lb, therefore the conversion factor is 0.0625. To enter the conversion factor, it must first be converted to scientific notation: .625 is the mantissa (between 0.1 and 1), and -1 is the exponent (power of 10) Using this conversion factor, the I150 will display 1 custom unit for every ounce on the load receiver.

How To Optimize Dribble and Preact


Filling Processes: 1. Enter a value equal to 10% of the target weight for DRIBBLE, and 0 (zero) for PREACT in the SET parameter. This will cause the feeder to change to slow feed when the load reaches 90% of the target weight, and stop the feeder when the target weight is reached. When the feeder is stopped, material suspended in air (or the pipeline) will fall freely into the hopper and cause an over-fill. The weight of over-shoot should then be entered for the PREACT value. Access the SET parameter in the scale submenu and change the PREACT value.
Suspended material empties into hopper after feeder stops.

2.

3.

Repeat the procedure as needed to adjust DRIBBLE for optimum fill time, and PREACT for optimum accuracy. 59

Emptying Processes: 1. Enter a value equal to 10% of the target weight for DRIBBLE, and 0 (zero) for PREACT in the SET parameter. This will cause the emptying device to change to slow feed when 90% of the target weight has been emptied, and stop when the target weight is reached. When the emptying device is stopped, material suspended in air (or the pipeline) will fall freely into the receiving container and cause an overshoot. The weight of over-shoot should then be entered for the PREACT value. Access the SET parameter in the scale submenu and change the PREACT value.

2.

3.

Repeat the procedure as needed to adjust DRIBBLE for optimum emptying time, and PREACT for optimum accuracy. Digital Output Functions and LED Display Indicators Digital outputs and LED indicators activate as follows (see Digital Output Connections in INSTALLATION section for pin connections): 1. When system starts, dribble and preact LEDs are ON and digital outputs are LOW. Target output is HIGH. When LOAD > (target - dribble), dribble output goes HIGH; LED turns OFF. When LOAD > (target - preact), preact output goes HIGH; LED turns OFF. System automatically stops. When load on receiver is within target tolerance range, target LED is ON and output goes LOW. (Target LED will not go on if target is not reached.) 60
