Carefully unpack the scale and commodity tray. Remove the protective film from the front and
rear displays. Make certain that no sign of damage to the instrument is visible. Should
evidence of damage be found, the carrier should be contacted at once. Make certain to keep
the carton and packing material should return shipment or storage of the instrument become
necessary.
3HIPPING3CREWS
The load cell is protected from shipping damage by two (2) shipping screws through the top
housing and one (1) shipping thumb screw located on the bottom of the scale (see figure).
Remove the two (2) shipping screws, the thumb screw and the warning label before using the
scale. Retain the two (2) shipping screws and the thumb screw to be re-installed before
transporting or shipping the scale. Note: Only hand tighten the thumb screw on the bottom of
the scale and do not over-tighten the two (2) shipping screws through the top housing.

Before mounting the commodity tray onto the scale, level the scale if necessary by adjusting
the four legs on scale bottom, up or down, until the bubble in the level gage located on the
scale housing is centered as shown in the figure above. After level is achieved, lock legs in
place by tightening lock nuts on legs against the scale bottom.

3. START-UP - The scale is equipped with ON and OFF keys on the keypad. When the
/. key is pushed, the scale will show zero weight, signalling that the scale is ready for
use. If the deadload on the scale is not within ± 4% of the deadload used during
calibration, the scale will display "74 (LoAd) or =1074 (UnLoAd), indicating that
weight must be added or removed, respectively, from the platform. Once the deadload
is within ± 4% of the deadload used during calibration, the scale will zero and is ready
for use.

Pressing the :%2/key will rezero the weight display or when displaying the
accumulator total, zero the accumulator.
Operator presses 4)-%$!4%key and is prompted for ;42<5 (sell by date).
Date is displayed in total price window as it is keyed. %.4%2key ends entry.
NOTE! Sell By Date must be re-entered whenever power has been interrupted.
This key is also used to enter the system clock mode to program the time, date
and year. Press the &Nkey, then the 4)-%$!4%key to set or change the
scale clock. The display will change to #.1?, the prompt to enter the minutes.
Tare can be subtracted by placing a container on the scale and pressing 4!2%
or by keying in a known tare (container) weight on the keypad and pressing
4!2%when the unloaded scale is at true zero.
Pressing the 02%0!#+key after unit price is entered retains the unit price for
repetitive price-computing. Tare entries are retained in PREPACK mode.
This key is used to print labels when the scale is connected to a label printer.
When in Prepack operation, it is used to print a label and add to the total price
accumulator.
Press the 0,5key and the unit price display shows %917? the request to enter a
price lookup number. As the number is keyed, it is displayed in the total price
window. After the PLU number has been entered, press the %.4%2key. The
recalled PLU description and unit price will display and operations will return to
normal. Refer to the 02)#%,//+500,53%450section of this manual for
programming price lookups.
The through numeric keys are used to enter numeric
data during the setup and calibration as well as during
normal operation of the scale. NOTE! The and keys
have dual functions. They are used to enter numeric data
during setup and calibration as well as during normal
operations and are also used to select yes or no (1 = YES,
0 = NO) to various prompts.
Pressing the %.4%2!##5-key when weight display is
zero will cause the instrument to display the current
contents of the accumulator (the number of pieces
accumulated and total price since the last time the
accumulator was zeroed). The maximum value of the
accumulator is 9999.99.
The #,%!2 key is used to clear an incorrect entry from the display without processing the
data. Pressing the #,%!2key cancels a unit price entry, cancels the PREPACK mode or
clears an incorrect or unacceptable known tare entry. If an incorrect entry is made, press the
#,%!2 key and re-enter the correct data. NOTE! The #,%!2 key must be pressed before
the %.4%2key to ensure the data is not processed.

NOTE! Pressing a fraction key, shown below, after a unit price has been entered computes
price per fraction of a pound. After fraction key is pressed, unit price display will show price
per pound (unit price multiplied by 2 or 4).
Pressing the Gkey computes price per 100g or 1/4lb depending on the
scale mode.
Pressing the Gkey computes price per 250g or 1/2lb depending on the

This key is used for several functions. During Price Look Up (PLU) Setup, this
key is used to assign a PLU number to the second or alternate level of QuickKeys.
In normal operation, pressing the &N key before pressing a Quick-Key selects the
second or alternate PLU assigned to that Quick-Key. This key is also used in
conjunction with the 4)-%$!4% key to enter the system clock mode to
program the time, date and year.

The alpha keys are used to enter alpha characters during setup and calibration as well as
during Price Look Up (PLU) setup. The space is used to enter a blank space during
alphanumeric data input for setup and calibration as well as during PLU setup.
During normal operations, the Alpha keys (including the Space) are the PLU Quick-Keys.
Pressing the Quick-Key will output its assigned PLU. Pressing the &N before pressing an
Quick-Key will toggle the key to output its alternate assigned PLU.
For example, if PLU 23 is assigned to “A” and PLU 79 is assigned to alternate “A”, pressing
the &Nkey then the ! key causes PLU 79 to be recalled.

This scale was calibrated at the factory and should not require adjustment. In the event that
the scale should need calibration, the following describes the Calibration of the Price
Computing Scale. A qualified technician should perform this function to maintain the
instrument’s high degree of accuracy.
Before beginning calibration, the following equipment is required:
Calibrated test weights
(6 lb for PC-10, 15 lb for PC-20, or 30 lb for PC-30)
(3 kg for PC-10KG, 6 kg for PC-20KG, or 15 kg for PC-30KG)
No. 1 Phillips screwdriver to remove side cover
With the scale power off, remove the four (4) screws and two (2) calibration sealing tabs
securing the right side cover (as viewed from the scale front) and remove the cover. Referring
to the illustration, locate the calibration switch S1. Push and hold calibration switch S1. Press
the /.key to turn power on. The weight display window will show %?.
