Gravity
compensation
zone rate
Instructions
You use this option to set the gravity
compensation zone rate when a scale is
calibrated outside of the intended gravity
zone of using the scale.
An example of setting this option is as
follows:
If we assume that the scale is calibrated in
Birmingham, UK where the gravity is
9.81287 and it will be used by a customer in
Denmark where the gravity is 9.81616.
1. Divide the intended customer
location of Denmark by the
calibration location of Birmingham
(9.81616 divided by 9.81287) to get
a result of 1.00034 (rounded to five
decimal places).
2. Enter the gravity compensation zone
rate of 1.00034 using the number
keys
.
3. Press the
key to accept the
value you entered.
4. If you do not need to enter a value
for the gravity compensation zone
rate (if the scale will be used at the
same location where it was
calibrated) set the rate to 1.0000.
N
NOTE: The number range is limited
to between 0.96000 and 1.04000.
You must do the calibration with the figure of
1.0000 and the gravity compensation zone
rate set afterwards. The scale does not
accept numbers entered outside of these
values. It displays, Err15 and return the
scale to the menu and defaults the rate to
1.0000. So you will have to re-enter the rate
if you need to change this figure.
