To change the weight unit of measure, press the UNIT key.
To send data to another device via the serial port, press the PRINT/HOLD key.
To hold the weight data, press and hold the PRINT/HOLD key for 4 seconds.
Power off the scale by pressing and holding the ZERO/ON/OFF key for 4 seconds.
ZERO
If the display dose not shows 0, and there is nothing on the platter, press the ZERO/ON/OFF key to zero the reading.
Zero range: ±20% * full Capacity.
The zero function is unavailable when the displayed reading is out of the zero range and the indicator will show the
error message 0﹉﹉﹉ or 0﹍﹍﹍, meaning the scale is over or under zero range.
Setting a Tare Weight
1. Zero the scale as described above.
2. Place an empty container on the platform, press the TARE key. The display will return to zero, eliminating the weight
of the container. The NET announciator will be lit on the display.
3. Place the material or object to be weighed in the container. The net weight will be displayed.
4. To exit tare mode, remove all weight from the scale. The display will show a negative weight. Press the TARE key to
return the display to zero.
4. Calibration
Note:
(1) Before calibrating the scale, pls prepare standard weights (more than 10% of FS weight) for calibration.
(2) In the following steps, press the ZERO/ON/OFF key to exit the calibration mode.
1. Remove all weight from the scale. Under normal weighing mode, press and hold TARE and ZERO/ON/OFF keys for
more than 4 seconds to enter calibration mode.
2. The indicator will show “CAL-?”, which means the scale is ready for calibration. Press the TARE key to confirm
and continue into calibration mode.
3. When “CAL.P0” is displayed, the scale will begin to calibrate the zero-point of the scale. Press the TARE key to
confirm, or press the ZERO/ON/OFF to exit this mode. After getting the reasonable zero-point data, the indicator
will automatically be directed to the next step.
4. When “CAL.P1” is displayed, the scale will be calibrated on second calibration point. xxxxxx kg (or lb) will be
displayed. The default standard weight is 50%FS. Load 5%-100%FS weight on the scale, and use HOLD or UNIT
keys to input the loaded weight. Press the TARE key to confirm your input and the indicator will flash the input
standard weight. After the scale becomes stable and receives the ADC's data corresponding to the standard
weights, and, if the data is reasonable and acceptable, the indicator will automatically be directed to next step. If
the second point cannot be calibrated correctly, it will display “CAL.Er” and return back to step3 for
re-calibration.
5. When “CAL.P2”is displayed, the scale will be calibrated on third calibration point. xxxxxx kg (or lb) will be
PS‐102 www.measuretek.net . 4 displayed. The default standard weight is 100% FS. Load 10%-100%FS (this must be equal or larger than that for
the second calibration point) weight on the scale. Use HOLD or UNIT key to input the standard weight’s value.
Press the TARE key to confirm. The indicator will flash the input weight. If the indicator receives reasonable data, it
will be directed to the next step automatically. If an error occurred, the scale will display “CAL.Er” and return
back to step3 for re-calibration.
6. When “CAL.P0” is shown again, the scale will calibrate the zero-point again. Remove any weight from the scale,
press the TARE key to confirm; the displayed data will flash. If the indicator receives reasonable data, it will
calculate and store all parameters into EEPROM. Then it will auto-reset and be directed to weighing mode. If an
error occurred in calibration, the scale will display “CAL.Er” and then it is necessary to repeat the procedure
from step3.
5. View ADC Code or Power Voltage
1. In normal weighing mode, press and hold HOLD/PRINT and ZERO/ON/OFF keys until “code” is shown, which
means the indicator is working under display inner code mode. In this mode, you can examine the stability of the
weighing system, the increment value of ADC code corresponding to the loaded weight, and/or power voltage to
PCB.
NOTE:
1) The increment of ADC code for FS weight must be larger or equal to 2 times of selected display division;
otherwise, the calibration cannot be properly completed. E.g. the display division is 0.1kg. Load 100kg
standard weight on the platform, the increment of A/D code is at least 2x 100kg/0.1kg= 2x1000=2000. In
this case, the scale can be calibrated. Otherwise, smaller division need to be chosen.
2) The data should be stable; otherwise, the calibration cannot properly complete.
2. In this mode, you can calculate the proper ADC data at zero point by examining the A/D data for loaded weight. If
the ADC increase for full capacity is NFS, the power-on zero range is set to Zp% FS and zero key range is set to
Zk% FS. Then proper ADC data of zero point is larger than (Zp%+ Zk%) x NFS.
3. ADC increase for full capacity (NFS) can be calculated by: Load the weight W on the platform, and the ADC increase
for W weight is Nw. The ADC increase for full capacity WFS is (NFS)= (Nw)x (WFS)/W .
4. Press the UNIT key to select displaying weight inner code or input the inner working voltage value. When “U x.xx” is
displayed, the display digit is voltage value, and the unit is V. The proper working power voltage is between 3.8V to
8V.
5. Press the TARE key to display filtered or un-filtered weight A/D data; when the HOLD announciator is lit, the data is
filtered.
6. Press the ZERO/ON/OFF key to exit this mode and return to normal weighing mode.
PS‐102 www.measuretek.net . 5 6. Configuration Parameters Setup
1. When the scale is off, press and hold the ZERO/ON/OFF and PRINT/HOLD keys until ‘C0NF’ is shown, which
indicates that the scale is in Configuration parameter setup mode.
2. During setup mode, press the UNIT key to change the flashed digits, and use the HOLD/PRINT key to shift the
flashed position. Press the TARE key to confirm the flashed digits. Press the ZERO/ON/OFF key to exit this
mode.

4. More Information for Configuration Parameters:
4.1 The division (d) of scale is determined by C3,C4 and C5 :
If C3=3 (interval is 5), C4=2(decimal point is x.xx), C5=1(unit is lb),
Then C3xC4xC5=5x0.01xlb=0.05lb,
So, d=0.05lb
4.2 The capacity is determined by C1 and d :
If C1=3000, d=0.05lb, then C1xd=3000x0.05lb=150.00lb,
So, the capacity (FS) is 150.00lb
4.3 Operation on C16 :
If you need to recover all configuration and user parameters to their default value, modify the “0” to “1”
when “C16 0” is shown, then press the TARE key to confirm. The indicator will display “dEF.?” and “?” is
flashed, press the TARE key to confirm, then “dEF.?” will flash to indicate recovery processing; “C16 0”
will be displayed when the processing is complete. When the indicator displays “dEF.?” and “?” is flashed,
press the ZERO/ON/OFF key to exit this mode and not to recover parameters.
NOTE: Different settings of the Configuration Parameters can result in the scale have a different performance!

The baud rate and data format is set by U6 and U7. Responses to serial commands will be immediate, or
within one weight measure cycle of the scale. One second is adequate for use as a time-out value by remote
(controlling) device.
The length of the weight field will be 8 digit weight data, one for minus sign, one for decimal point, two for
measure unit (e.g. “lb”, “kg”). If the unit is lb:oz, another two for “lb” and one for a space (<sp>) after lb.
Units of measure abbreviations are always lower case.
(1). If the weight is overcapacity, the scale will return ten ‘^’ characters (the field of minus sign, decimal
point, weight data is filled by ‘^’).
(2). If the weight is under capacity, it will return ten ‘_’ characters (the field of minus sign, decimal point, and
weight data is filled by ‘_’).
(3). If the zero point has an error, it will return ten ‘_’ characters.
