Scale Assembly
Unpacking Your Scale
Place the unopened box in an open area that ample room for unpacking the scale.
Parts contained in the shipping box include:
• The scale
• This manual
• AC adaptor (in white box).
• Scale feet
2.2
Repacking
If the Digital Physican Scale must be returned for modification, calibration or repair, it must be properly packed
with sufficient packing materials. Whenever possible, use the original carton when shipping the scale back.
NOTE: Damage caused by improper packaging is not covered by the warranty.
2.3
Setting Up Your Scale
Use the following steps to set up the Digital Physician Scale. Setup is basically the same for all three models.
Tools needed for setup include:
• 6 mm hex Allen key (included)
• 4 mm hex Allen key (included) - needed for height rod only
Use the following steps to set up the scale.
1. Locate the operator’s manual from inside the box and set aside as it will provide instructions on the
proper scale removal and set up.
2. Carefully lift the scale out of the packaging material that it came in - lifting it out by the scale base.
NOTE: DO NOT lift the scale out of the box by just the scale column. This could cause the hinge to break.
3. Move the scale into the area where the weighing process will occur. It’s recommended to place the scale
on a hard, level surface for the most accurate weighments. Thin carpeting is fine but not recommended.
4. Attach the scale feet to the bottom of the scale base by screwing them into the scale base until snug. The
level bubble on the scale base should indicate that the scale is level. If not, screw out scale feet until
bubble becomes centered.
Figure 2-1. Bubble Should be Centered to Indicate that the Scale is Level
5. Loosen hex screw on waist and eye level models.
6. Unfold and set upright.
7. Tighten the hex screw head very firmly into the hinge at the base of the scale using the 6 mm Allen key
to help stabilize the scale.
8. Assemble the height/measuring rod (for the eye level model only).
Insert the rod into the pillar base slot and feed the screw into the hole. Using the 4 mm Allen key, tighten
the height rod to the scale from the back.

Figure 2-2. LED Light Location
The AC adaptor, when not in use, plugs into the back housing of the indicator. Figure 2-2 shows that location.
The Digital Physician Scale is capable of running its internal sealed lead-acid rechargeable battery if no
additional power source is available. Battery life is approximately 75 hours. If the LO Bat indicator is showing on
the display, recharge the battery or connect the scale to an AC power source as soon as possible for accurate
weighing.
Battery Charging
When the AC adaptor is connected to a power source, the rechargeable battery goes into recharge mode.
NOTE: To maintain battery longevity we recommend you charge it on a regular basis rather than waiting until it is fully
discharged.
The LED indicator light on the back of the scale housing will illuminate red during the charging period, and
change over to green when the battery becomes fully charged.
2.4
Getting Ready to Weigh a Patient
Once the scale is properly unpacked and set up, and prior to weighing a patient, step on the scale to check the
scale that all functions are working correctly. The scale is calibrated from the factory so simply turn on the scale
and step on the scale to get a weight reading. Press the REWEIGH key again to verify that weight.

Using the Body Mass Index (BMI) Function
Body mass index (BMI) is the relationship between weight and height associated with body fat and health risk. It
is a reliable indicator of body fatness for people and even though BMI does not measure body fat directly,
research has shown the BMI correlates to direct measures of body fat. BMI is an inexpensive and
easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems for adults.
Calculating BMI is one of the best methods for population assessment of overweight and obesity. Because
calculation requires only height and weight, it is inexpensive and easy to use for clinicians and for the general
public. The calculation is based on the following formulas:
Calculate BMI by dividing weight in pounds (lbs) by height in inches (in) squared and multiplying by a
conversion factor of 703.
Example: weight = 150 lbs, height = 5’5 (65")
Calculation: [150 ÷ (65)2] x 703 = 24.96
The standard weight status categories associated with BMI ranges for adults are shown in the following table.
BMI
Weight Status
Below 18.5
Underweight
18.5 - 24.9
Normal
25.0 - 29.9
Overweight
30.0 and Above
Obese
Table 3-2. Standard Weight Status
The following examples show weight ranges, the corresponding BMI ranges and the weight status categories for
a sample height.
Height

169 lbs to 202 lbs
25.0 to 29.9
Overweight
203 lbs or more
30 or higher
Obese
Table 3-3. BMI Ranges and Weight Status Example
Use the following steps in determining the BMI.
1. To use the BMI function, weigh the patient as described under Weighing (above)3.1 and then press the
BMI key. If weighing in Lbs, the default height of (5 feet) appears on the display. Use the up or down
arrows to increase the feet height by one foot increments). Press the BMI key again to display inches
(default is 7.0 inches) Again, use the up or down arrows to increase or decrease the inches height by 0.5"
increments. Press the BMI key again to accept the inches value. The final height value will be displayed
ie: 5-07.5 = 5’ 7.5".
2. If you are weighing in Kgs, the default will be 170.0 cm. Use the up or down arrows to increase or
decrease by 0.5 cm increments.
3. To see the patient’s calculated BMI, press the BMI key again. The BMI appears.
4. To cancel the BMI display, press the BMI key.

3.3
Using the Tare Function
You can use the tare function for deducting an extra weight (such as a wheelchair, or medical equipment attached
to the patient) in a weighing operation.
Use the following steps to use the tare function.
1. With the scale set to 0.0, place the extra load on the scale. The display shows WEIGH and then the weight
of the load.
2. Press and hold the TARE key until TARE appears on the display. The display returns to 0.0 and TARE
appears on the left side of the display.
3. Remove the load from the scale. The weight of the load appears with a negative symbol to the left of it.
4. Ask the patient to step onto the scale with the load. The display then shows the patient’s weight without
the weight of the load.
5. The weight of the load remains stored in memory, so you can continue to weigh patients who are
carrying the same tare weight. For example, when using the same wheelchair for weighing more than
one patient.
6. To cancel the tare weight, press and hold the TARE key until TARE disappears from the display. The tare
weight is also cancelled when the scale is turned off.
Use the following steps to enter a tare without placing that item on the scale. An example of this would be if
you’ve got a patient in a wheelchair and the wheelchair has a known weight (has been tagged) you can enter that
weight manually.
1. With the scale set to 0.0 Lbs (there must be no weight on the scale), press the TARE key. The display will
alternate between a value and the word TARE.
2. To change the value, press and hold the Kg/Lb key until the right most digit is equal to the first digit of the
value you want. Example: If you want 103.5, hold the key until the display is 0.1.
3. To advance to the next digit, press the Kg/Lb key twice quickly. The digit you changed will move left and
the right most digit will again be 0. Again, hold the Kg/Lb key until the right most digit is equal to the
next digit in the numbers you want.
4. Continue as in Step 3 until you are displaying the value you want, then press the TARE key.
5. You can now accurately weigh the patient.
6. To cancel the tare weight, press and hold the TARE key until TARE disappears from the display. The tare
weight is also cancelled when the scale is turned off.

RS-232 Communication
The scale comes with an RS-232 port which enables weight data to be transmitted to other equipment, such as a
computer or printer. The RS-232 cable with DB-9 connector (PN 100719) is available from Rice Lake Weighing
System. Figure 2-2 on page 3 shows where the RS-232 connection is.
The RS-232 parameters are 9600 baud (selectable in the programming mode), 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity
and no handshaking.
There are three methods of communication:
• Pushbutton keypad print
• Standard remote protocol
• Escape protocol
4.1
Pushbutton Keypad Print
With a stable, in-range weight, press and hold the Kg-Lb/Print key for at least three seconds, or until the scale
emits two quick beeps. Note that if the scale does not beep after five seconds, then release the button as the
weight was either in motion, or out of range.
• If displaying weight and not BMI, the scale will send out the following 21 character string:
xxxxxxxxx<SP>uu<SP>mmmmm<SP><CR><LF>
Where:
xxxxxxxxx is the weight with decimal point and " - " sign, if negative uu is the unit (lb or kg).
mmmmm is the mode (gross or net)
Examples:
-10 Lb net = <SP><SP><SP><SP>-10.0<SP>lb<SP><SP>Net<SP><SP><SP><CR><LF>
10 Lb gross = <SP><SP><SP><SP><SP>-10.0<SP>lb<SP>Gross<SP><CR><LF>
•
In BMI mode (displaying the BMI value), the scale will send out the following data:
GROSS WEIGHT
TARE WEIGHT
NET WEIGHT
PATIENT HEIGHT
PATIENT BMI
215.0 LB
0.0 LB
215.0 LB
