Electrical Connections:
Prior to connecting your scale to power, check the serial number tag on the back of
scale for the correct operating voltage. Verify that the power matches the rated voltage.
Be sure the AC power is not excessively noisy - this can occur if large inductive loads,
such as solenoids or motors, are on the same power line. The scale has a filtered power
supply to reduce the effects of normal line noise, but they cannot limit severe
fluctuations. If problems occur, noise producing devices may have to be suppressed to
minimize their effect.
12
Power Up:
Connect the Model 7400, 4300, 7000XL to a compatible power source. With the 8000XL
or scale models with battery option, press and release ZERO button to turn on scale.
Basic Weighing Operation:
1) Remove all items from the scale platter.
2) Press the ZERO button to zero the scale. The weight display should now read zero.
3) Place an item on scale platter and wait for the motion (MOT) annunciator to go out,
indicating a stable weight.
4) Read the weight on the scale display.
ZERO button:
The ZERO push button is also used to zero the scale prior to making a reading. The
ZERO button functions over the full range of the scale in standard operation mode. In
Legal For Trade mode, it will be limited to a zero band equal to + 1.9% of scale capacity.
When the indicated weight is within the center of zero band (gross zero + 0.25 divisions)
the zero annunciator will light. To zero the scale, wait until the scale is stable and press
the ZERO button. The scale will not zero if the scale is in motion. Motion is indicated
when the MOT annunciator is lit. The scale is equipped with an optional "Zero on
Demand" feature which zeros the scale upon the next stable reading. This option may
be activated during the scale setup procedure.
UNITS button:(7400 optional)
The UNITS button permits the operator to select from six displayed weight units. Simply
press the UNITS button and the units annunciator will indicate the correct weight in the
current weight units "lb", "kg'', "oz", "g", "lb-oz". The UNITS button can be configured to
allow the selection of any combination of units listed above, preventing accidental
selection of undesired units. See the Units Conversion Setup Parameter for details.
The UNITS button has a parameter located in the Push Button Function Setup, which
can disable the UNITS button, and control the startup units selection every time the
scale is turned on.
13
PRINT button:(7400 optional)
The PRINT button permits the operator to send data to a printer or other external
devices. The user must wait for motion to stop before pressing the PRINT button.
Motion is indicated when the MOT annunciator is lit. The current weight will then be
transmitted to the printer. When the data is transmitted, the left most display digit will
momentarily display a "r" to confirm data transmission. The 4300, 7000XL, 8000XL, and
7400(optional) has a "Print on Demand" feature which stores a PRINT request until the
scale is stable. Once stable, the scale transmits the current weight. These models also
have several automatic print options, which may be used to simplify printer operation.
See the Data Communication Section for details on Further configuration. The PRINT
button is active with RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet and wireless communication protocols.
4300 OVER / UNDER buttons:
The OVER and UNDER buttons are used to enter the weight values needed for
checkweighing applications. In the simplest configuration (3 band), these buttons will
enter the “check” weight by pressing either the OVER or UNDER button. When in this
mode, the current weight is entered as the checkweighing limits. The default entry
mode uses the OVER and UNDER buttons to take the current weight and scroll it up or
down (arrows on the button indicate the scroll direction) until the desired “check” weight
is reached. Once the desired value is reached, pressing ZERO (ENTER) will enter the
desired value in the scale. The 4300 also offers five band check weighing.
Accumulator and Counter (Hidden button)
Press the Capacity Label to enter the accumulator / count recall mode. The display will
show "Accunn" followed by the accumulated weight, then "Countr" follow by the counter
value. The display will continue to repeat this message until a key is pressed. The
accumulator / counter recall mode will display the accumulator value in the units
currently selected in the weigh mode. Note: Changing the current display units will clear
both the accumulator and counter values.
Press UNITS button to exit the accumulator / counter recall mode without changing their
values.
Press ZERO button, while in the accumulator / counter recall mode to clear the
accumulator and counter values. The display will show "Clr Ac" and exit from the recall
mode.
Press PRINT button, while in accumulator recall mode, to transmit the accumulator and
counter values. Label buffer 4 contains the print string formatting for the accumulated
weight and counter value. See Output Formats in the Parameter section and Label
Buffer default settings for more details.
The accumulator and counter is incremented once every time a manual or automatic
accumulation occurs. When the weight has been added to the accumulator and the
counter has been incremented, the left most display digit will momentarily display a "o"
to confirm operation. The maximum value that can be shown for the accumulator and
14
counter is 6 digits or 999999. When the maximum value is reached, the accumulator or
counter will rollover. Note: The accumulator and counter feature can only be used in a
non Legal For Trade application.
15
Battery Operation
The 8000XL and other models with battery option are equipped with a self-contained
Rechargeable Sealed Lead-Acid battery and charging circuit, both internal. The scale is
designed to run continuously for 60 hours (with one 350 ohm loadcell) on a fully charged
battery. To significantly extend this battery life, enable the Unit On Timer which will
power down the scale automatically after a period of non-use. Multiple load cells, Fiber
Optic, Ethernet, 4-20mA, Wireless Communication(12 hours), Remote Display or Relay
options will reduce battery life. For multiple load cell applications, battery life is
significantly reduced. For example, with a four, 350
load cell configuration, the low
battery indication will begin at about 39 hours of continuous use. Load cells with higher
input impedance values such as 1000 will add up to 8 hours of additional battery life.
The charging circuit will fully charge the battery in approximately four to eight hours
whether the scale is on or off. To charge the battery, simply plug the line cord into a
standard 115V (230V optional) wall outlet. The scale can be used while recharging the
battery, in fact, the scale can be used with the AC charger cord plugged in on a
continuous basis. Note: 8000XL installed with multiple load cells, Fiber Optic, Ethernet,
4-20mA, Wireless Communication, Remote Display or Relay options will increase
charge time.
If an AC power failure occurs with the charger plugged in, the scale's battery
immediately takes over to provide uninterrupted scale operation.
The scale's charging circuit is a two-stage, current limited charger. The scale will sense
the charge condition of the battery and charge at a high rate when the battery is
depleted. When the battery comes up to a fully charged state, the charger will switch to
a trickle mode which maintains the battery at a fully charged state without overcharging.
The "BATT" annunciator indicates that the battery is in need of recharging. The scale
will continue to operate accurately for approximately one hour (with one 350 ohm
loadcell) after the "BATT" annunciator is lit. When the battery is too low to run the scale,
the scale simply turns off and will not operate again until the battery is recharged. At this
point, when the ZERO (ON/OFF) is pressed, the "BATT" annunciator will be lit as the
scale performs its display test and then the scale will shut down immediately.
The battery should be able to support at least 300 recharges before the end of the
battery life is reached. This is an estimate as many factors can affect battery life like,
severe temperature changes and charging before the scale's displays Low Battery.
Turn Off: (8000XL or Battery option)
1) To turn off manually, press and hold the ZERO push button until the display shows
"rEL Pb." Then release, the ZERO button and, the scale will turn off.
2) The scale will turn off automatically at the end of the Unit On Timer setting when that
mode is selected (see Unit On Timer parameter).
16
Low Battery Indication: (8000XL or Battery option)
The "BATT" annunciator indicates that the battery is in need of recharging. Once the
"BATT" annunciator turns on, there will be approximately one more hour of battery life
before the scale shuts down. When the battery is too low to run the scale, the scale
simply turns off and will not operate again until the battery is recharged. The scale
remains accurate and useable even with the "BATT" annunciator on.
17

Remove JU7 and JU8 when connecting a 6-wire
load cell. (JU7 and JU8 must be present when
connecting to a 4-wire load cell)
Fig. 6: Load Cell connections
Connecting a load cell or configuring jumpers requires the removal of the rear panel.
Removing the Rear Panel
Before you remove the rear panel, remove the AC or battery power supply from the
scale. Removing the rear panel requires a 5/16” nut driver. Remove all four screws and
set aside. Do not loosen any watertights on the back panel that do not require
modification.
Replacing the Rear Panel
Secure any connections that have been modified. When replacing the rear panel it is
necessary to mount the gasket, all four screws and gasket washers. Tighten all four
screws to 20 ft-lb to achieve proper sealing. It is normal for the rear panel to dimple
slightly when the screws are tightened to 20 ft-lb. Tighten any modified watertight until
the cable exiting the watertight can no longer slide through the watertight – this is
usually finger tight. With an open-end wrench, apply a quarter turn to the watertight for
a tight seal.
24
Load Cell and Power Connections:
Load cell connections are made through a terminal block "TB1" located at the bottom
center of the main board (see Fig. 6). The power cord connects to a connector "J1"
adjacent to the transformer (see Fig. 7). These connections are accessible by removing
the rear cover screws and laying the rear panel and front of scale on the work surface.
To install a single load cell, remove the rear panel and check the JU7 and JU8 jumper
configuration. Remove JU7 and JU8 for a six-wire load cell. Inversely, JU7 and JU8
must be in place for a four-wire load cell. Locate the ferrite core kit and read "load cell
cable grounding and ferrite assembly" instruction sheet. Thread the load cell wires
through the ferrite core as shown in Fig. 11. Connect the load cell wires by inserting the
tip of a screw driver into the round hole located on the top of the terminal block TB1.
Use the screw drive blade to open the adjacent slot, insert a striped end of a single
loadcell wire into slot. Once wire end has been inserted, remove screw driver, wire
should now be capture in terminal slot. Repeat for all remaining loadcell wires.
RS232 and Remote Switch Connections:
The Remote Switch and Serial Communications terminal is found on the top of the main
board next to the transformer. These option connections are accessed by removing the
rear cover. Connections are made by inserting each lead of the option cable into P2
terminal block (see Fig. 7). Like the load cell cable and power cord, the option cables
are passed through watertight fittings mounted on the back of the indicator.

Calibration Guide
Entering Calibration and Parameter Setup Mode:
The Calibration and Parameter Setup Mode can be entered by three different ways.
1) The Front Panel CAL Access Feature on power-up (Available only on the 4300,
7000XL, 8000XL models or on models that have an optional UNITS push button
installed.) To enter the calibration mode, power up the scale while pressing the
ZERO and the UNITS button at the same time. When the “rEL Pb” is shown, release
both buttons. The display will momentarily show “Ent Cd” then go blank. Press the
ZERO button five times, the display will indicate the number of times the button has
been pressed. When “ 5 “ is displayed then press and release the UNITS button and
wait a few seconds. Note: If the code is not entered before the timer is finished, the
scale will bypass code entry and enter the normal run mode. See Parameter Setup
section for more information.
2) The Front Panel CAL Access Feature after power-up (Available only on the 4300,
7000XL, 8000XL models.) To enter the calibration mode, first press and hold the
UNITS and then the ZERO button until the Audit counters and Parameter review
starts. After the Audit counters are displayed, and during the parameter review,
press and release the Hidden (Capacity Label) button. The display will momentarily
show “Ent Cd” then go blank. Press the ZERO button five times, the display will
indicate the number of times the button has been pressed. When “ 5 “ is displayed
then press and release the units button and wait a few seconds. Note: If the code is
not entered before the timer is finished, the scale will bypass code entry and enter
the normal run mode. See Parameter Setup section for more information.
3) The CAL switch S1 is a momentary push button located in the lower left corner of
main PC. Board (see Fig. 6). To access the calibration switch remove the meter’s
back cover.
Capacity:
The Capacity selection is performed by entering the Calibration mode. Press and
release UNITS button until the display toggles between "CAP Aj" and the current
capacity "XXXXXX" (where "XXXXXX" can be any valid capacity in lb or kg. The units
annunciator to the right of the weight display will indicate either lb or kg. The Calibration
and capacity setup unit is defined by the startup units "S.U." parameter setting.)
Once the current capacity appears, press and release ZERO button to begin capacity
adjustment. The first display digit located all the way to the right, will begin to flash.
Press ZERO to increment value of digit. Press UNITS to select the next digit (shift left),
or PRINT to select the previous digit (shift right). The digit that has been selected will
starting flashing. To enter a decimal point for the selected digit,. Press and hold the
UNITS button, then press ZERO to toggle the decimal point on or off. Once the desired
capacity is displayed, press UNITS until "Cnt by" parameter is displayed. When
finished, return to the run mode by pressing the CAL switch or scroll through the menu
with the UNITS button to "donE n". Select "donE y" by pressing the ZERO button, and
then press the UNITS button to exit to the run mode.
26
Once the desired capacity has been selected, place the correct capacity label on the
front panel, to the right of the display.
NOTE: On scales with factory installed platforms, the capacity is set at the factory. It will
not be necessary to set the scale capacity.
Resolution:
After Capacity has been entered, the scale's Resolution (Count-By) will automatically be
set for a nominal 5000 division level. To enter in a different Count-by setting, the scale
must be in the Calibration mode. Press and release the UNITS button until the display
momentarily shows "Cnt by" and then starts flashing the current Resolution level
"XXXXXX" (where "XXXXXX" can be any valid count-by value between 100 and 45,000
divisions of capacity. The units annunciator to the right of the weight display will indicate
either lb or kg.
Once the current Count_By level appears, press and release ZERO button to increment
value through the available range. Once maximum level has been reached, the level will
roll-over to the minimum value. When finished, return to the run mode by pressing the
CAL switch or scroll through the menu with the UNITS button to "donE n". Select "donE
y" by pressing the ZERO button, and then press the UNITS button to exit to the run
mode.
Calibration:
1. Enter Calibration mode, then press and release the UNITS until "CAL 0" appears on
the display.
2. Remove all weight from the scale platter and wait for about 10 seconds. Press
ZERO and wait for the display to count down to 0. If the calibration zero was in
range, the display will return with "CAL FS". If the display returns with a "CAL 0",
repeat the process.
NOTE: If "rg Err" appears on the display, the calibration zero is out of range. Press
ZERO to clear error. Refer to the A/D Ranging section for additional information.
The scale can be calibrated using (a) full capacity weight, (b) half capacity, (c) quarter
capacity, (d) one tenth capacity, or (e) any capacity weight between 2% and 100% of
full scale (Not available on the 7400).
To select the weight to calibrate the scale, press the UNITS button and select one of the
four following capacities.
CAL
CAL
CAL
CAL
FS: Full load calibration.
.50: Half load calibration. (50% of full load)
.25: Quarter load calibration. (25% of full load)
.10: 1/10th load calibration. (10% of full load)
27
If you want to select a weight between 2% and 100% of capacity, select the capacity
range above closest to the desired weight. Then scroll to the exact weight by pressing
CAPACITY to go increase the weight or PRINT to reduce the weight. This is not
available on the Model 7400.
3. To complete the calibration process, place the correct weight on the platter and
press ZERO and wait for the display to count down to 0. If the span calibration was
in range, the display will return with "donE". If the display returns with a "CAL 0",
repeat steps 2 and 3.
NOTE: If "Er nEg" appears on the display, the calibration span is in a negative range.
Check polarity of load cell connection (see Fig. 6) and repeat Calibration.
NOTE: If "SPAn E" appears on the display, the calibration span is out of range. Press
ZERO to clear this error. Refer to the A/D Ranging section for additional information.
NOTE: Calibration at 2% of capacity has been provided as a convenience to customers
with high capacity scales in remote or inaccessible locations. Scales calibrated at 2% of
capacity are more likely to have significant errors at full capacity than are scales
calibrated at 25% or 50%. Doran Scales recommends that all scales be calibrated at
full capacity whenever possible. 2% calibration should not be used when calibrating
scales for legal for trade applications. It is the responsibility of the installer/user to
ensure that NTEP accuracy is achieved after any calibration.
28
A/D Ranging:
(Refer to this section only if you encounter a calibration problem)
NOTE: On scales with factory installed platforms, the zero and span will lie within
permissible limits. Load cell signal input range 0.283 mV/V to 5 mV/V.
1) Enter Calibration mode by using Front Panel CAL Access feature or by
pressing the CAL switch (S1).
2) Press and release UNITS or PRINT until in the raw counts mode.
3) Return the scale platform to "No Load" by removing all items from the platform.
4) Record the "No Load" counts. The "No Load" or dead load raw counts must be
between 130,000 and 393,000 counts. If the readings are outside of the limits
specified, change dead load until you meet these requirements.
5) Place "Full Load" on the platform and record the "Full Load" counts. Subtract
the "No Load" counts from the "Full Load" counts to calculate the "span". Refer
to Table 1 and verify that the span falls within the limits specified range. The
"Full Load" raw counts (span + dead load) should not exceed 900,000 counts.
6) When using 50%, 25% or 10% of full load to calibrate, refer to Table 1 for Full,
50%, 25%, 10% span ranges.

Parameter Review of Calibration and Setup Values:
The Parameters values for the indicator may be quickly reviewed without entering in the
Calibration and Parameter Setup Mode. Remove power and press and hold the ZERO
button while you apply power. Hold the button until the scale begins to scroll through
each of the parameters. The button may be released anytime after the review has
begun. After parameters are displayed, scale will then go to the normal weighing mode
automatically. Note: The Parameter and Calibration audit counters are the first item to
be displayed when the scale is in Legal for Trade / Audit Trail mode (“oP” = “44” ).
Legal for Trade Restrictions:
When the Legal for Trade mode is enabled, it automatically disables some menus and
parameter options. This is done to comply with NTEP requirements. The menus and
parameter sections are shown on the following pages. Those menus and/or parameters
not available when in the Legal for Trade mode are marked by an asterisk.
Audit Counters:
When entering calibration mode, the Parameter audit counter and the Calibration audit
counter will momentarily be displayed. The Parameter audit counter only increments
when CAP, Cnt by, A2t, nn.A., SU0, oP values are changed (ZERO pb is pressed). The
Calibration audit counter only increments when Calibration Zero CAL 0, and Span CALXX
are performed. Note: when scale is in Legal For Trade Switch mode (“oP” = “44S”), the
Audit counters will not be displayed.
Software part number and revision level:
During power up, the scale will display several messages. The first message is a display
test with all the LED segments on, "888888". Next, the scale will show the software part
number "Su 102" followed by the software revision level "rEv 3.0" or higher. Please

Data Communications
Introduction to data communications:
The scale data is sent to a printer or computer by using "asynchronous serial data
communications." Data is broken up and sent one piece at a time to the printer or
computer. In spite of this apparent simplicity, a basic understanding of serial data
communications is needed when setting up the scale.
The scale transmits letters and numbers to a printer or computer by replacing the letter
(or number) with an eight bit ASCII code. This code is then transmitted, one bit at a time,
to a printer or a computer. A bit is the smallest unit of data and can have a value of "1"
or "0." By combining eight bits into a byte, it is possible to get 256 unique bit patterns.
These patterns are used to create the ASCII codes used by the scale to represent
letters and numbers.
When setting up a serial communications system, there are several concerns which
affect the configuration of that system. These are:
transmission rate
knowing when data starts and stops
the ability of the receiving equipment to digest the data sent
The transmission rate determines how fast the data is sent from the scale to the printer
(or computer) and is measured in Baud or bits per second. (Baud and bits per second
are interchangeable.) The transmission rate controls how many bits can be sent in a
given time. It is important that the sending and receiving units are set to the same Baud
settings. Typical values are 1200, 2400, 4800 and 9600 baud.
The term "asynchronous serial data communications" implies that the sending unit has
no way of telling the receiving unit when a data bit has been sent or when to expect the
next bit. To correct this problem, both the sending and receiving units use the baud rate
setting to determine how fast data should be sent. If the baud rates at the sending and
receiving units differ, the receiving unit will expect data to arrive at a different time than
when the transmitting unit sent it. When this happens, data will be lost. When the baud
rates match, the receiving unit has no problem with the data arriving early or late. The
only problem is knowing when the data transmission started.
The scale and the equipment connected to it resolve this dilemma by sending a "start
bit" at the beginning of each data byte. This bit tells the printer or computer that a new
data byte is on the way. When the start bit is received, the bit timer starts running and
runs until it has received the correct number of bits.
The number of bits sent by the scale is controlled by the data bits, parity and stop bit
configuration. The scale is factory set for eight bits, no parity and one stop bit. This
means that the eight bits following the start bit will be data, followed by a stop bit. The
stop bit signals the end of the data and permits the bit timer a chance to reset itself
before the next data byte is sent. No parity bits are sent.
45
In many cases, the receiving unit is a slow printer with limited memory. In these cases,
more data may be sent than the printer can use. Again, data may become lost or
scrambled. To prevent this from happening, "Handshaking" is used. When the receiving
unit is busy or incapable of receiving further data, it activates the handshaking; telling
the sending unit to stop transmission. Then, whenever the receiving unit is ready for
more data, it deactivates the handshaking and data transmission continues.
The scale offers hardware and software handshaking. Hardware handshaking makes
use of the CTS (clear to send) input on the unit. When this signal is active, the scale is
permitted to send data. When the receiving unit is busy, the CTS line is deactivated and
the scale stops sending data. When the receiving unit is ready for more data, the CTS is
reactivated and the scale will finish sending the data string it was sending when
transmission was interrupted. All readings created while transmission is halted are
discarded.
Software handshaking relies on bi-directional communications to send the XON (Ctrl-Q)
and XOFF (Ctrl-S) flow control characters. The scale has limited bi-directional serial
communications to support software handshaking. When a "Ctrl-S" is received, the
transmission of data is halted until a "Ctrl-Q" is received. To use this mode, the RTX line
of the scale is tied to the TXD line of the receiving unit. Refer to Doran RS-232 Training
Technical Bulletin (MAN0214) for in depth coverage of this subject.
Printer Modes:
The Scale Indicator offers four different print control modes. These modes dictate when
printer data is sent. To confirm data has been sent, the display will show a "r" to confirm
data transmission.
Transmit on demand (tod):
In this mode, scale data is transmitted whenever the PRINT button is pressed, the
remote PRINT button is pressed, or a print request is received from the serial port. The
scale must be stable and the scale value must be valid before the data is printed.
Continuous print (CP):
In continuous print, data is transmitted each time the scale has a reading ready.
Readings which occur when the scale is in motion are called out by the abbreviation
"MOT." following the data. The Digital Filter Setup parameter will control the number of
data transmissions per second.
Auto Print 1 (AP1):
Auto Print 1 transmits the first scale reading after the scale leaves motion. The reading
must be stable and must be a valid reading before it can be sent.
Auto Print 2 (AP2):
Auto Print 2 transmits the first scale reading following the scale leaving motion and
above the adjustable threshold level. To adjust the Threshold level as a % of capacity,
see the Threshold Level parameter. In Auto Print 2, no further readings will be sent until
the scale returns to weight reading that is below the adjustable threshold level. The
reading must be stable and must be a valid reading before it can be sent.
46
Auto Print 3 (AP3):
Auto Print 3 transmits the first scale reading following the scale leaving motion, being
above the adjustable threshold level and in the accept band. To adjust the Threshold
level as a % of capacity, see the Threshold Level parameter. In Auto Print 3, no further
readings will be sent until the scale returns to weight reading that is below the
adjustable threshold level. The reading must be stable, in the accept band, and must be
a valid reading before it can be sent.
Data output format:
In order for the serial data sent from the scale to be useful, the data must be organized
so that it is easy to read. To accomplish this, the scale arranges the displayed data with
additional text to indicate the active units and to indicate the presence of motion during
the reading.
"F0" Format:
The basic data format sent by the scale is illustrated in Table 2. Each line of data
begins with an STX character (start of text) followed by a polarity sign, which indicates
the reading polarity. Next, the displayed data is sent. Six digits are used with a decimal
point inserted in the correct position. After the weight data is sent, a space followed by
the units are added to the string. When motion is present, another space is inserted
followed by "MOT." The string is then finished by adding a carriage return and a line
feed.
In the case of lb-oz data, the pounds value is placed after the polarity sign. A space
followed by "lb" and another space follows the pounds data. Ounce data is then sent
with a decimal point inserted where needed. Once again a space is inserted after the
weight data followed by "oz." Only six digits are sent in the lb-oz mode so the allocation
of these digits depends on the ounces resolution. Refer to Table 2 for details.
"2d" Format:
In the "DUAL PRINT" format, the current weight is first printed using the "F0" format.
Then the weight is recalculated in kilograms and is sent as a second line of text. The
kilogram data follows the "F0" data format except where parentheses are placed after
the STX character and before the carriage return, line feed. Refer to Table 2 for details.
"SSP" format:
The data string produced by the SSP format allows the scale to communicate with an
Eltron Label Printer. This printer allows the creation of custom labels containing weight
information, bar codes and graphics. Refer to Table 2 for details.
"Fg" Format:
In the "8000 emulation" format, the print string is the same as the "F0" format. The only
difference is that “grs” message is add between the current units <uu> and the motion
<MOT> status. Refer to Table 2 for details.
47
"UPS" Format:
The data string produced by the UPS format allows the scale to communicate with an
UPS world ship program. Refer to Application Note at end of manual and Table 2 for
details.
"d3" Format:
The data string produced by the d3 format allows the scale to communicate with a Live
Scale (Virtual) Display portion of the Dimension software that is running on a computer.
Note: that parameter d.o. should be set for continuous print "C.P." for the program to
function properly. See Dimension Software Section.
"Lb1 - Lb4" Format:
Label Buffer 1 through 4, is a user configurable print string. Note: scale is already
preprogrammed with a default print strings loaded into each label buffer. Label Buffer 3
is used for data collection and is configured with a comma-delimited format or CSV
(comma-separated values). Label Buffer 4 is used for Accumulator print feature. Refer
to Label Buffer Configuration on following page for details.
Print String Formatting:
The Scale provides eight predefined print strings that are outputted when a manual
print, auto print or print function is executed. The Label Buffer print string provides the
opportunity to define a custom print string up to 64 characters in length. The exact
contents of the predefined print strings and Label Buffer print string configuration is
shown below.

Label Buffer Configuration
Programming the Label Buffer print string requires the use of a PC terminal program
and the Serial cable option. To program the indicator for a custom print string, match
the terminal program and the indicator communications parameters. Confirm the
system communications by typing a Z and pressing ENTER. The scale display should
zero. If this does not occur, check the hand shaking settings and cable configuration.
To configure the Label Buffer Print strings, simply type the print commands into the
terminal and press enter. The label buffer control characters are as follows:
\a
Accumulated Weight (6 digits +dp) \s
\c
Accumulation Counter (6 digits
+dp)
Current Weight (6 digits +dp)
\w

The label buffer is limited to 62-character string length. Therefore, a control character
counts as two characters. The following string is 8 characters in length “\w\u\r\l”. The
custom string is terminated and download by pressing the enter ( ) key. To program this
string for Label Buffer 1 location in scale’s memory, send the following string:
EL1\w\u\r\l
Once programmed, set the Output Format “For” parameter to lb1 to active the print
string.

Note: If the PRINT button is pressed while the accumulator or counter is displayed.
Label buffer 4 is transmitted instead of the configured print string option for the Output
Format.
Label Buffer Default settings
The indicator is shipped with all the label buffers preloaded with print strings. The
following strings are stored in each of the individual buffers.
Label Buffer 1: “\x\w \u \m\r\l“
Label Buffer 2: “\x\w \u \s\m\r\l”
Label Buffer 3: “\w,\u,\i\r\l”
Label Buffer 4: “\xACC:\a \u\r\lCNT: \c\r\l\B”

is CR or enter key in terminal program.
A command counts as three characters. If needed, a negative polarity "-" character is
prefix to the weight value. Note: Do not place a space between the negative sign and
the weight value. Up to six digits, plus decimal point for weight value can be entered.
The following string is 6 characters in length “20.000”. The entry string is terminated and
download by pressing the enter ( ) key. To enter a weight value of 20 lbs. for Setpoint
7 (Over limit) in scale’s memory, send the following string: ES720.000 . To enter in a -1
lbs. for Setpoint 5 (Under limit), send the following string: ES5-1.000 . Note: The
decimal point location and count-by resolution for the weight being entered, must match
the scale's front display format. A "SAVEd" message will momentarily show on the
scale's front display, to indication that the setpoint value has been successfully saved to
non-volatile memory. An entry error will be indicated by a "?" character returned on the
serial port.

Fuse Replacement:
The Scale's line fuse (F1) is located next to the power terminal (J1). Make sure power
is off, before replacing the fuse. Remove the fuse cap by unscrewing it counter
clockwise, then pull the fuse out of the socket and insert the new fuse in socket (see
FIG. 13). Then screw the fuse cap back on the socket and apply power to the scale.

4-20mA Analog Output (optional)
Introduction
The 4-20mA Analog Output Option is used to provide an analog output that is
proportional to the weight on the scale platform. Because of the inherent noise immunity
present in a current loop, an isolated 4-20mA analog output is ideal for use in noisy
environments. The 4-20mA analog output option can be used to send weight data to a
process indicator, a simple on/off controller or to a programmable logic controller.
Setup
To setup the 4-20mA Analog Output Option, calibrate unit like a standard scale. This
procedure is found in the instruction manual. The 4-20mA option is automatically
calibrated for an output range of 4mA to 20mA, (i.e. 4mA equals zero weight and 20mA
equals the scale’s capacity). Once the basic scale has been connected and calibrated,
attach the output cable from the appropriate controller or indicator to the 4-20mA option
board. The white lead is connected to the + input of TB2 and the black lead is
connected to the – input of TB2.
Active (default)(Fig 14.2) or Passive mode (Fig 14.3), if your application requires a self
power (Active mode) analog output, place jumpers on pins 3,4 (ACT) on JU1 and JU2.
For loop power (Passive mode) applications, place jumpers on pins 1,2 (PAS) on JU1
and JU2. See Fig 14.1 for jumper locations.
Calibrate your process indicator or controller according to the manufacturer's
instructions. Remember that the option will output 4mA when the scale reads "zero" and
20mA when the scale reads full capacity. NOTE: If the scale is in a fault condition, the 420mA output levels are 3.5mA for gross underload or underload, and 24mA for gross
overload or overload. Output impedance range is zero to 600 ohms.
Operation
There is no effect on scale operation when the 4-20mA Analog Output Option is

RS485 Communications (optional)
The scale offers an RS485 data communications option. RS485 communications are
similar to RS232 except that RS485 provides better noise immunity, it is suited to longer
cable distances, and it will allow multiple scales to be attached to the same data line.
RS485 achieves its performance advantage over RS232 by utilizing a differential input
and output. In other words, the RS485 device sends two copies of its data; one in
positive logic and in negative logic. The receiving device looks at the two outputs and
takes the difference between them. If the difference is positive the bit is a "1' if it is
negative, it is a "0."
The ability of RS485 to have multiple devices attached to the same line complicates the
serial communication. Because of the multiple device capability, each device must have
a unique dedicated address. Also, no device is permitted to communicate unless the
master serial bus controller has specifically activated it. Since a scale with RS485 may
not communicate unless it is activated by the master serial bus controller, a print buffer
is provided to store scale data until it is requested.
When the indicator is setup RS485 communication, all print requests are redirected to
the print buffer rather than the printer port. All weight readings are stored in this buffer
until a buffer dump command is received from the serial port. Once the dump command
is received, the scale takes control of the serial bus and transmits the stored scale
readings. When the buffer is empty, the scale releases the bus and will not
communicate until the master serial bus controller again activates it.
Warning: if scale data stored in Print Buffer exceeds buffer size, only the latest data
that will fit in buffer, will be saved. If the scale is set for the default print string "FO", the
buffer will store up to 15 print strings before overflowing the buffer size.

RS485 SETUP
The following section assumes that you are familiar with the operation of the parameter
setup menu. If you are unsure of any step while setting up RS485 operations, please
read previous sections in this Instruction Manual before continuing.
Setting up RS485 communications in the system requires that the scale be connected to
the RS485 bus. Using a two-wire data cable attached to TB3 on the Digital Output
option board makes this connection. See Fig. 16.1 and Fig. 16.2 for details on the
necessary connections. You will need to know and understand the operation of other
RS485 devices in your system.
After setting up the cable, the scale must be configured to work with the RS485 bus.
Enter the setup mode and scroll through the setup menu until you come to the Serial
Data Output Handshaking and set it for RS485 mode. Next, press "UNITS" to step to
Scale (Bus) Address parameter. The scale will ship from the factory set for address
"00". Press "ZERO" to scroll up the value for bus address. Be sure to record the
address you selected. At this time, the RS485 buffer is activated.
Note: If the Data Output Handshaking is not set to RS485, the scale will behave as if
the scale is communicating via RS232. This may be desired for a RS485 bus with one
scale on the bus or an application where communication with a single scale over a long
distance is required.
Once the scale address is set, select the "Data Output Mode." Doran Scales
recommends against using the Continuous Print Mode with RS485 because the buffer
will fill up quickly requiring frequent readings of the buffer. If you require an automatic
recording of weight data, then the Auto Print mode AP2 is recommended.

RS485 Commands
In order to communicate with your scale, your bus controller must send the scale
commands in a format it expects. The scale's communications string is constructed as
follows:
01 <SC> <CR>
Where;
"01" is the scale bus address (01 to 99)
<SC> are the scale commands.
<CR> Carriage Return is a ASCII character (0x0d hex or ^M)
Example: "01W "
address 01.
Initiates a print command that will store data to the Print Buffer at
It is possible to broadcast a command to all scales on the RS485 bus by using scale
bus address “00”. All scales will receive this command and will respond. Warning: Do
not use this command to dump the contents of the scale buffer as all the scales on the
bus will attempt to communicate at once and will result in the loss of data.
All scale commands as laid out in the Data Communications section, Table 2 are
available for use in RS485 communications. The following are some common
commands recognized by the scale:
W
Z
D
Instructs the scale to print to the print buffer.
Instructs the scale to perform a "ZERO" operation.
Instructs the scale to dump (or transmit) the Print Buffer's contents to the
bus. The Print Buffer is then cleared of all data.
Bus termination resistors
Since RS485 systems are designed to cover long distances, it is often necessary to
terminate the bus at its ends. This termination reduces reflections on the bus and
provides a pull up for the bus drivers. The RS485 option board has these termination
resistors built in and jumper accessible. Table 12 provides terminator resistor jumper
information.

provide bias to the bus and at least one pair of pull up / pull down resistors are required
somewhere on the bus. Additional sets are probably not required, but every installation
will require some judgment by the installer.

Internal Relay Option (optional)
The Internal Relay Option (EXOPT106) allows up to four relays to be mounted inside
the scale's enclosure. The relay control is described in Parameter Setup Section. This
section discusses the installation and wiring of the relay controls.
Three types of relays are available for use with the Internal Relay Option –
Electromechanical and Solid State (AC or DC). Specify style of relay at time of order.
Relays are socked so replacements can be installed in the field.
Fig. 17: Digital Output Board Wiring
Fig. 18: Internal Relay Board
70
Internal Relay Setup:
The internal relay option comes with an interface cable between the Digital Output
board and the internal relay board for relay control. A second twelve conductor cable
provides the relay output and exits the meter through a watertight. Leave this cable in
place when configuring the outputs and refer to the output cable color code table. In the
field, this cable will most likely be replaced. Ensure that the replacement cable is rated
well above the maximum current required by the electrical device to ensure safe
operation and the cable diameter is between 0.16” and 0.31” for proper watertight
sealing. The Scale does not provide the AC or DC power to run external devices.
Ensure your customer has made provisions to supply the necessary power.
Each relay has a three-position output that provides a Common, Normally Open and
Normally Closed terminal. Keep in mind that the Normally Closed terminal is only
available for use with a mechanical relay. Solid State relays can operate as Normally
Closed through software configuration only. The following table shows the color codes
and terminal connections for the included cable.

Doran Wired Ethernet Configuration Guide
The Doran Wired Ethernet option comes with a NEMA 4X washdown safe bulkhead
mount connector on the rear of the scale. The mating field installable connector is
available from Doran (P/N EXOPT150) and can be installed on customer supplied
cabling.
You have two options for Wired Ethernet, Static IP or a Dynamic IP address. Dynamic
IP works with a DHCP server and is the default configuration. Each time the scale
powers up, the network will assign a new IP address to the scale. If Dynamic IP is
desired, simply connect the scale to your network switch and skip to step 6 of the
following instructions.
Static IP addresses use the same IP address each time the scale connects to the
network. No two devices can share the same IP address. For the Static IP address to
always be available on the network, the server must be configured to reserve the Static
IP address. To configure a Static IP address, follow the instructions below.
1. Run the dgdiscvr.exe software provided with the Doran Scale on a PC connected
to the network and on the same subnet. When this program is executed, all
Doran Wired and Wireless Ethernet devices connected to your network will be
listed.
2. Highlight the device you want to configure and click on Open web interface. If
you have multiple devices that are new to the network that need to be configured,
the scale can be identified by the MAC address. The MAC address can be found
just above the Ethernet connector on the rear of the scale.

3. If you wish to have a Static IP address, click on Network under the Configuration
header on the left.
4. To configure to a Static IP address, click on Use the following IP address radio
button and fill in the required network IP address fields. The IP Address field
contains the current IP address assigned by the DHCP server. This IP address
can remain the same if desired. When configuring the static IP address, be sure
that no other device on your network is actively using this IP address. Be sure to
reserve this Static IP address in the DHCP server to ensure another device will
not be assigned this IP address. Once the IP address is confirmed and available
on your network, click Apply to accept the changes.

Doran Wireless Ethernet Configuration Guide
To connect your Doran Wireless Ethernet option to your network, the Wireless Ethernet
option will need to be configured to communicate with your Wireless Access Point
(WAP). The WAP must be connected to your network and functioning properly. You
will need a PC connected to the network – preferably through wired Ethernet, not
through the WAP you are reconfiguring. Communications to devices and PCs
connected to the WAP you are reconfiguring may lose communication when certain
WAP parameters are reconfigured. Refer to the WAP supplied documentation to
change WAP parameters.
1. Configure the customer supplied Wireless Access Point to broadcast the SSID.
2. Disable any WEP or WPA security in your WAP.
3. Turn on the Doran Scale with the Wireless Ethernet option installed. Be sure to
have the scale near the WAP to prevent any interference with communication
while configuring the Wireless Ethernet option. Wait 30 seconds after the scale is
powered up to allow the Wireless Ethernet option to begin communications. The
Wireless Ethernet option will connect to any WAP broadcasting an SSID without
security enabled.

UPS Application Note
UPS On-Line WorldShip Software Rev 3.1 and Higher
Description:
The following instructions will allow a Scale to be connected to the UPS On-Line shipping
system. The UPS On-Line software operates by continuously polling the scale for weight
several times a second. The program then displays the current weight in a window marked
“Scale Weight:”. This package weight, in pounds is then used to generate a shipping label if
the “Electronic Scale Activated” check box is selected.
Hardware Setup:
Before starting the UPS On-Line software, connect the Scale's serial port to the computer’s
serial port (com1 or com2) by way of a optional serial cable. Apply power to the scale and
press the ZERO push button.
WARNING: The scale must be on and connected at all times while the UPS On-Line program
is running. If the scale is disconnected, turned off, or placed in the calibration mode, an error
message will be displayed on the computer screen. To correct this error, you must perform a
scale setup again or restart the UPS software – see Software Setup for instructions.
Software Setup:
Computer: If the UPS On-Line program has been already installed, follow the configuration
steps below only. If the UPS On-Line program is not installed, power up the scale and connect
the scale's serial cable to an available PC serial port. Next, install the UPS On-Line program as
per instruction on the UPS installation CD. The installation program will prompt you to select if
a scale is connected, select yes.
To configure the UPS On-Line WorldShip program:
1) Click on the “Tools” menu located at top of screen, then select “System
Preferences”.
2) Click on the “Hardware” tab and set the “Scale Type:” drop down menu to “Fairbanks
70-2453-4”.
3) Click on the “Scale Port:” drop down menu, choose which serial port the scale is
connected to, com1 or com2. This is the port that the DB9 cable is connected to at
the rear of your PC from the scale.
4) Finally, click on the “Test Scale” button. Place weight on the scale. The computer
should then display the current weight on the scale.
5) Click the “OK” button, and return back to the service menu.
6) Check the “Electronic Scale Activation” box to accept weight readings from the scale.
The current weight will be displayed under the “Package:” section, in the “Scale
Weight” window. NOTE: UPS software does not show zero or negative weights on
the main display page.

Grading Products Application Note
Grade and show product weight (gSt):
The following instructions will configure the scale to display for 2 seconds a product's
weight when removed from or added to a container. The product weight is determined from
the difference between two stable weights. If the scale becomes unstable and then stable
again before the 2 second hold timer has finished, the new weight difference is displayed.
All Checkweigh or Setpoint functions are only active during the 2 second hold period. (see
Checkweigh and Setpoint Operation Section). By using the Accumulator and Counter
feature, the number of products and total weight can be stored. To activate the Accumulator
and Counter feature, set the Printer Data Output "d.o." parameter to Auto Print 2 "A.P.2"
(see Accumulator / Counter Operation Section). Another scale feature that can be utilized is
the Digital Output board option, which can be configured to indicate up to eight grades by
way of lights or beepers (see Digital Output Board option for more details).

Grade and show grade number (gnt):
When a product's weight is removed from or added to a container. The scale will display for
2 seconds, the current grade number (i.e. "111111" to "888888"). The grade number is
determined by comparing each setpoint level with the product weight. If the product weight
lies between two setpoint levels, the grade number would be the lower numerical setpoint
number. For example, the product weight is 10 lbs., setpoint 3 is 9 lbs. and setpoint 4 is 12
lbs. The grade number shown on the display would be 3 or "333333", where SP 3 >=
grade < SP 4. The setpoint testing sequence starts with the high to low setpoint number,
i.e. weight >= setpoint 8 then weight >= setpoint 7 and so on. The product weight is
calculated from the difference between two stable weights. If the scale becomes unstable
and then stable again before the 2 second hold timer has finished, a new setpoint number
is displayed. Output functions are only active during the 2 second hold period. (see Setpoint
Operation Section). By using the Accumulator and Counter feature, the number of products
and total weight can be stored. To active the Accumulator and Counter feature, set the
Printer Data Output "d.o." parameter to Auto Print 2 "A.P.2" (see Accumulator / Counter
Operation Section). Another scale feature that can be utilized is the Digital Output board
option, which can be configured to indicate up to eight grades by way of lights or beepers
