BATTERY INSTALLATION
Before weighing operations can begin it will be necessary to install the batteries in the HSDC
hanging scale. This same procedure should also be followed when battery replacement becomes
necessary. Make certain that only “C” size alkaline batteries are used as replacements.
NOTE! Exposure of batteries to high temperatures (above 140° F) will decrease
their capacity resulting in shorter operation time.
Step 1
Using a screwdriver, remove the two retaining screws from the back of the instrument. Remove the
battery compartment cover.

Remove these screws
Step 2
Remove the old batteries, if present. Insert six new “C” cells making certain that each cell is
correctly positioned. Refer to the next diagram for proper battery placement.

Step 3
Replace the battery compartment cover and retaining screws.
NOTE! If the HSDC scale fails to operate after battery replacement check to
make certain that each of the six cells has been installed correctly. One cell
installed backward will prevent the scale from operating.
SCALE OPERATION
Before weighing operations can begin it will be necessary to install batteries in the scale. Refer to
the battery installation section of this manual for additional information.
Hang the scale from a support that is strong enough to support the weight of the scale PLUS the
weight of the material that is to be weighed.
Hang the load receiving element on the hook on the bottom of the scale and press the ON/ZERO
key. Look at the weight display. If the display does not indicate zero weight, press the ON/ZERO
key again to reset the display to zero.
Place the material to be weighed in the receiving element and read the weight in the scale display.

TARE WEIGHT ENTRY
The HSDC has an automatic tare feature that allows you to enter tare weight up to the three least
significant digits of the scale capacity. This tare weight feature is often used to subtract the empty
container weight or other unwanted fixed weight values from the weight reading. See the PUSH
BUTTON TARE setup mode section to activate this feature.
The following table lists the maximum tare weight allowed for each model of the HSDC scale.

TARE WEIGHT ENTRY, Cont.
Pressing the TARE key will cause the currently displayed gross weight to be stored as the new tare
weight and cause the scale to enter the net weight display mode. The net weight display mode is
indicated by turning on the net annunciator. For example, on a HSDC-20, if the displayed gross
weight is 2.00 lb and you press the TARE key, the 2.00 lb would be entered as the new tare weight.
The scale would then enter the net weight mode and subtract the 2.00 lb tare value from the gross
weight displaying a net weight of 0.00 lb. If you added another 2.00 lb to the platform, the display
would indicate 2.00 lb of net weight. Pressing the GROSS key would return the scale to the gross
weight display 4.00 lb. NOTE: Remember the scale will only weigh to its maximum capacity. Any
combination of NET plus TARE weights over the scale capacity will result in a overload condition
and display ot. For example, using the HSDC-20 from above, with tare weight of 2.00 lb, adding
19.00 lb to the platform will cause an overload condition. This is because 2.00 lb tare weight plus
19.00 lb load weight equals 21.00 lb gross weight, which exceeds the capacity of the scale.
DISPLAY CODES
During operation of the HSDC hanging scale you may encounter a special display message. The
following lists display codes and their meaning.
DISPLAY
MEANING
-oC-
Scale overloaded, remove excess load to resume operation.
UnSt
Motion is present when attempting to power-up, zero the weight display or enter a
tare value.
UnLd
The weight on the scale exceeds the zero range on power-on. Remove the load.
LoAd=
The scale load is less than the zero range on power-on.
-oF-
Attempting to display a negative number less than -999.
CALb
Indicates that the scale has not been calibrated or has been interrupted during the
calibration process.
Err
Disallowed keyboard entry: attempted to zero with the weight outside the zero
range.

CALIBRATION
Your HSDC hanging scale has been calibrated prior to shipment and should not require recalibration before it is placed in service. A regular check of the instrument’s calibration should be
made to ensure that its weighing accuracy is maintained.
To check the calibration of your HSDC hanging scale, you must have a calibrated test weight or
weights equal to the scale’s capacity. Begin by making certain that the scale is unloaded and that
the display is indicating zero weight. Load the scale with the test weight(s) and observe the weight
display. If the displayed weight is different from the total test weight value, calibration may be
necessary. Note that a qualified scale technician should be consulted before any attempt at
calibration is made.
NOTE! This scale is provided with a means of attaching a seal to prevent access
to the calibration switch.
Calibration Procedure
Step 1.
Remove the seals (if present) from the calibration cover plate, then remove the two
retaining screws and cover plate.

SETUP REVIEW
The HSDC allows several operational parameters to be reviewed and changed as necessary
without having to break the calibration seal and enter the setup and calibration mode. The setup
review allows changes to be made to the power up zero setting, the automatic shutoff and sleep
mode delay times, push button tare.
To enter the setup review mode, simply turn the HSDC off, then press and hold any key other than
ON/ZERO or the OFF keys and press the ON/ZERO key. The display will prompt for the power up
zero selection. Refer to the instructions listed in the Calibration Procedure section of this manual for
information on how to change these parameters.
The parameters in the setup review will be processed in the following sequence:
POWER UP ZERO
AUTOMATIC SHUTOFF TIME
SLEEP MODE TIME
PUSH BUTTON TARE
Fine Span
The span can be fine-adjusted while the indicator is on by pressing and holding the calibration
switch and pressing the ON/ZERO or NET key:
Calibration Switch + ON/ZERO = increase
Calibration Switch + NET = decrease
Go to Sealing Instructions
SEALING INSTRUCTIONS
To attach the seals, first make certain the two cover plate retaining screws are snug then thread the
seal wires through the hole in the screw heads as shown in the calibration section of this manual.
DO’S and DON’TS
1. DO hang the scale from a support that is strong enough to support the weight of the scale plus
the weight of the material to be weighed. The more rigid the support the better.
2. DON’T shock load your HSDC hanging scale with weights greater than 10 percent of the scale’s
capacity by throwing the weight on the scale.
3. DO replace batteries as soon as the weight display shows the low battery signal.
4. DON’T hose down or submerse the scale in any liquid.
5. DO use only a damp cloth and mild detergent to clean the outside of the scale.
6. DON’T disassemble the scale. There are no user-serviceable components within the scale.
10
DO’S AND DON’TS, Cont.
7. DO use only high quality Alkaline “C” size replacement batteries.
8. DON’T use sharp objects to press the keys. Use only your finger tip.
9. DO check scale calibration regularly to ensure that the high degree of weighing accuracy is
maintained.
10. DON’T modify or replace the loading hook or hanging eye with lower capacity parts.
11. DO remove loads which produce the over capacity (-oC- ) display as soon as possible.
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
Your HSDC hanging scale has been designed to provide years of trouble free service. Should you
encounter a problem with your scale refer to the chart below before contacting your scale
technician.
Problem
Possible Cause/Solution
1. Scale seems dead
A. Batteries improperly installed, make certain each of the six batteries
is correctly installed.
No display
2. Incorrect weight
display
B. Batteries are discharged completely, replace with fresh batteries.
A. Scale not at zero prior to applying weight, remove load and reset
to zero by pressing ON/ZERO key.
B. Scale is not calibrated. Refer to Calibration Section of this manual.
C. Scale in net mode. Press the GROSS key.
If you are unable to resolve the difficulty, contact the Cardinal Scale representive from whom you
purchased the scale. He will be able to provide you with information concerning the return and
repair of your scale. Make certain that you obtain a return authorization number prior to returning
the scale. This number should appear on the shipping carton and all correspondence referencing
the repair. Failure to obtain a return authorization number will result in unnecessary delay.
