This function enables to display

A measurement is performed in two
phases:
- first phase – weighing a reference
MENU sample,
- second phase – measuring specific
sample as a percentage of
the reference sample.
T
Weighing result is displayed in
different format, depending on the
reference sample weight value. For
values of 0÷3,5% of weighing range
the format is “100.0”, for values
3,5÷35% it is “100.00” and 35÷100%
- “100.00”
T
The function has the following
options:
- F-0 – disables the function,
- F-1– stores current indication as
100% and activates percentage
weighing,
- F-2 – activates percentage weighing
with the previous reference sample
value.

„%” sign is replaced with „ _”
indicator.
Note:
1. Err-3 communicate signalises that
100% value is smaller then 0.5*Min

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Notes:
When necessary, use SEt-3 option to set the zero threshold value (indications
below this value are regarded as unloaded balance – see PROGI interface
description).
If comparison result is:
- smaller than lower threshold – the balance displays MIN,
- between threshold values - the balance displays OK with the sound signal when
exceeding the threshold,
- greater than upper threshold - the balance displays MAX with the sound signal
when exceeding the threshold,
The checkweighing results can be use to control external optical indicator or
batching devices. Standard balance is set for cooperation with the external
indicator. Dosing option is installed on customer’s request – to change external
device mode service intervention is necessary.
Threshold comparison results appear on P1-P3 output pins as a short-circuit state
(presented on the state chart on the next page).
During dosing (optional), short-circuit pulses lasting for 0.5s appear on P1 (I
threshold) and P2 (II threshold) outputs and for P3 output (zero threshold) – shortcircuit state for the indication below zero threshold.
Transmitter connection diagram
PROGI output is the open collector transoptor output with load capacity 100mA /
24V. Transmitter inputs must be protected with diodes, e.g. 1N4148.
It is advised to use MS3K/P electronic board (sold separately), consisting of
RM96P transmitters, with DC24V input voltage and AC250V, 8A output.
Important notes:
After switching the balance on, both thresholds are set as maximum values.
When selecting upper threshold value, pay attention that its value is not greater
than the lower threshold value.
