9.2. Autozero function
In order to ensure precise i ndication „AUTOZERO” functi on has been
introduced. The i ntended use of this function is automatic control and
correction of zero indicati on of the scale.
When function is active comparison of resul ts takes place at assumed
time interval s. If resul ts di ffer by val ue smaller than decl ared
AUTOZERO range e.g. one di vision, scale will be zeroed
and zero indi cati on –
automaticall y, stable state wi ll be marked–
will be di splayed.
When AUTOZERO function is enabled, each result starts from precise
zero. However there are some cases where thi s function can be disturb
in measurements. It can be (e.g.) very slow load placi ng on the pan
(e.g. load pouring) i n such case correcti on system of zero indication can
al so correct i ndication of real mass of load.

10. S ETTING OF RS 232 P ARAME TERS
External device connected to RS 232C socket must be suppli ed
from common mains e.g. with common antishock protection
preventing from existence of potenti als difference on zero wires
and connected device.
Scheme
Transmission parameters programmed in scale:
- Speed of transmission - 2400 – 38400 bit / s
- Data bits
- 7, 8
- Stop bit
- 1, 2
- Parity control
- none, even, odd
There are three ways of sending the indi cated value through seri al
interface to an external device:
-
Manually - after pressing PRINT key
Automatically – after stabil izing of indication
Continuously – when it i s set i n parameters or by RS232
command
On request – when an external devi ce sends a request
command. See additional functions - „List of scale computer commands”
It i s possible to set conditi ons of sending present mass by RS232:
- stable – i nformation is sent after the result is stable
- non-stabile – the current value of the di splay is sent
immediately regardless i t is stabl e or not. It can be sent on
request by the RS232 or tafter pressing PRINT, it is marked
with <?> in front of the mass value.

12. USER’S CALIBRATION (option)
Confi rmati on of hi gh accuracy of weighing requires peri odical
correcting cal ibrati on factors in the scal e memory – it is adjustment
of the scale. Calibration shoul d be performed when we start
weighing or dynamic change of temperature occurs. Before starting
calibration remove loads from the pan
12.1. Calibration
Procedure
−
fol lowi ng inscriptions will appear
−
−
A new start mass is adjusted duri ng this period of time. After that
a mass of calibration weight i s shown (e.g. 3 000kg).
Put the calibration weight on the wei ghing pan and press PRINT
Process of cali bration wi ll be performed.
- 40 -
−
After completion of the process of cali bration the following
screen will appear
−
take off the weight , then the fol lowi ng sequence of screens wil l
appear.
−
return to weighing performi ng the procedure of savi ng
parameters.
Return to weighing
(see - 5.1.2. – return to weighing)
- 41 -
12.2. Start mass adjustment
If the scal e does not require the full calibration process sit i s possible to
adjust only a new start mass.
Procedure
−
the display wil l show the foll owing information
−
after the completion of the start mass adjustment the foll owing
screen will appear

13. COOP ERATION WITH P RINTE R
Each time the PRINT key is pressed a current mass value together
with mass uni ts is sent to RS 232 interface.
Depending on setting of STAB parameter it can be printed out with
temporary or stable value. Depending on setting of REPL
parameter, printout will be automati c or manual.
One of thermal printer in KAFKA series can cooperate wi th each
platform scales:
a) KAFKA
Only resul t of weighing wi th mass uni t can be pri nted
b) KAFKA 1/Z
This pri nter i s equipped with an internal real ti me clock.
Both date and time can be printed.
c) KAFKA SQ S
This pri nter i s equipped with an internal real ti me clock and
possi bil ity of runni ng stati stics from measurements. Statistic
contents: quantity of sampl es, sum of masses of all samples,
average value, standard deviation, variation factor, min
value, max value, difference max - min
14. COOP ERATION WITH COMPUTE R
Sendi ng wei ghing results to the computer can be done:
-
-
manually - after pressing PRINT key
in continuous way – after functi on activating or sending an
appropriate command
automatically – when the result is stable (if REPL YES and
before placing a load, the scale indi cated a value below Lo
val ue)
on demand sent from a computer – see Li st of commands
