Body Mass Index (BMI) Functions
This is the CLEAR (BACKSPACE) key. It is used to clear an incorrect entry
from the display without processing the data. If an incorrect entry is made,
press this key and re-enter the correct data. When entering the ID, pressing
this key will act as a “backspace” key (it will back up one space and delete the
character in that space). NOTE: The CLEAR key must be pressed before
the PRINT/ENTER key to ensure the data is not processed.
This is the PRINT/ENTER key. It serves several purposes. First, it is used to
signal completion of the data entry and causes the MV1 to process the data
entered. Second, the it is used to initiate the transmission of weight and
associated data using the selected I/O port.
NOTE: The MV1 will not respond to pressing the PRINT/ENTER key unless the
weight display is stable. If displaying gross weight, only the gross weight is
printed. If displaying net weight, the gross, tare, and net weights are printed. If
the ID and BMI features are used, their data is printed along with the weight data.
These keys are used to enter alphanumeric data during the setup
and calibration as well as during normal operation of the MV1.
NOTE: The 0 and 1 keys have
dual functions. They are used to
enter numeric data during setup
and calibration as well as during
normal operations. In addition,
they are used to select YES or
NO to various prompts.
To enter letters, you must press the key in succession until the
desired letter is displayed. This is similar to the way a cell phone
keypad operates. (Ex: If you want to enter the letter C, you would
need to press the 2 key four times).
nControl Feature
The MV1 includes support for nControl. nControl is
a PC based program that can design a ticket then
download the ticket information to the MV1. The
MV1 allows 1 programmable format (up to 2kb in
size) instead of the ASCII format default ticket.
For more information on nControl, refer to the
nControl Fast Start Guide.

OVER CAPACITY
Scale weight exceeds scale capacity.
When the batteries are near the point they need to be replaced
(Alkaline) or recharged (NiCad or NiMH), the battery status
symbol will not show any bars. If the battery voltage drops too
low for accurate weighing, the MV1 will automatically shut off and
you will be unable to turn it back on.

Indicates improper stored calibration data. Calibration of MV1 is
required. Consult your scale service representative.
ERR ANALOG
An analog to digital convertor communication error has been
detected. Consult your scale service representative.

BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE
Problem
Display does not turn on
Possible Solutions
AC Operation:
 Is AC power supply fully inserted into wall receptacle?
 Check wall receptacle for proper AC power. Try another
electrical appliance in same receptacle, does it work?
 Check circuit breaker.
 Has there been power failure?
Battery operation:
 Check if batteries are installed and correctly.
 Is the battery status symbol empty (no bars are displayed)?
If Alkaline, remove old batteries and replace with new ones.
If NI-CAD or NiMH, remove discharged batteries and
replace with fully charged ones. Place discharged batteries
in an external charger to recharge.
Incorrect weight is
displayed
Insure that scale platform isn't touching an adjacent object.
Have proper operation procedures been followed?
Weight is not displayed
Refer to Error and Status Display section.
Height is not displayed
The digital height rod was not in its “starting position” before
turning on the MV1. The inner sliding tube must be completely
down inside outer stationary tube and headpiece folded flat
against stationary tube prior to turning on the MV1.
CARE AND CLEANING
NOTE: The MV1 contains no user-serviceable parts and maintenance should be
limited to an occasional cleaning and battery replacement as required.
46

Do not submerge the MV1 in water, pour or spray water directly on it to clean. The
MV1 is not waterproof and covering it with water will damage it and void the warranty.

Always remove power before cleaning.

Do not use wire brushes, abrasives, or cleaning tools such as steel pads and
scrapers, which will scratch the painted surface. Instead, use soft cloths or plastic
scouring pads for cleaning.

When possible use treated water. Hard water can leave behind deposits. Soft water
is much gentler on the painted steel’s surface.

Avoid the use of acetone, thinner or other volatile solvents and abrasive type
cleaners for cleaning. If required, a mild solvent such as mineral spirits can be used
to remove oil, grease, tars, wax, and similar substances. Use a cloth dampened with
mineral spirits and apply only to areas that are contaminated. Follow up the use of
this mild solvent with detergent cleaning and rinsing.
8555-M512-O1 Rev A 03/13
SECURITY SEAL INSTALLATION
If your metrology laws require the use of physical sealing, a lead and wire security seal can be
installed on the MV1 to prevent the end cap from being removed from it to gain access to the
calibration switch thereby preventing unauthorized access to the calibration adjustments.
NOTE: In order to install the lead and wire security seal, the two screws securing the left
end cap (as viewed from the MV1 front) MUST be replaced with two drilled screws. They
are available from the Cardinal/Detecto Parts Department. The part number is MVSK
(MEDVUE SEALING KIT).
To install a lead and wire security seal, follow the directions provided below:
1. Remove the two screws securing the left end cap (as viewed from the MV1 front).
2. Install the two drilled screws (and lock washers) in the end cap making certain they are
securely tighten before proceeding.
3. Thread the sealing wire through the hole in the drilled screws.
4. Pull the wire tight and install the lead seal.
5. The screws can not be removed without damaging the seal.
