INTRODUCTION
The PS3000N Electronic Postage Computing Scale is an electronic compendium of postal services
which incorporates and displays the cost of virtually all basic and supplementary postal services. It is graduated
in 1 gram steps throughout its 5000 gram capacity and displays the weight of any item placed on its weighing
platform together with the service(s) selected and total postage cost. It also has manual weight entry of up to 20
kg to calculate parcels that are beyond scale’s weighing capacity.
All countries worldwide are programmed into the PS 3000N's database, therefore it is not necessary to
refer to other lists and postal regulations. Simply key the name of the country into the scale via the alphanumeric
multi-function keyboard and the scale will automatically display the postage rates applicable to that country.

OPERATING THE PS 3000N POSTAL SCALE

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
The PS 3000N Postage Computing scale has a number of special function keys which provide access to the information contained in its databases
and make the scale extremely versatile.
Key C (i/1/C)
The letter i stand for "information". It is possible to use a combination of several supplementary services. The scale only shows abbreviated messages
for supplementary services that have been selected. You may lose track of what selections were selected. Whenever at least one supplementary
service has been selected in conjunction with a basic service, pressing the "i" key will cause the scale to display each of the services selected one by
one, showing the individual cost of each, and then re-display the total cost. This key can also be used to confirm the name of the Country selected.
Key D (
»/2/D)
The
symbol indicates that this key can be used to disable the audio tone which is emitted when keys are pressed to confirm that the scale has
responded to input. The tone can be re-enabled by re-pressing the same key or switching the scale off and on again.
Key (Registered Post or Security Post/SPC/<--)
This key has two special functions "SPC” and "<--" . The "SPC" function is used to enter a space between names when inputting the name of a
Country or City (e.g. NEW ZEALAND / NEDLANDS). The "<--" function is used to browse backwards through the PS 3000N's database. Once a
Country or City name has been input alphabetically, it is possible to browse (i.e. in the reverse alphabetical order) from that point through the list of
Countries or Cities held in the database by pressing this key. Each key depression moves back one name.
Key (COD/SEARCH)
There are two entries to the search facility:
1.
2.
When the “OVERSEAS” is pressed in international service.
Whenever a basic service is selected for an international destination.
The scale offers the choice of entering the destination code directly (if known) or through inputting the name of the country (international post)
alphabetically by pressing the "SEARCH" key. When the key is pressed the scale displays "Enter COUNTRY" enabling the name of the Country to be
input using the appropriate alpha keys. Key in the first few letters of the Country (alphabetically) commencing with the entered letters will appear on
the display together with information about that country. For example:-

POSTAL CHARGE CHANGES
From time to time, Australia Post changes the postal charges and these charges updates are accounted for by the changing of a data
memory chip, which can be ordered prior to a rate change from Xiamen ELANE. Complete instructions how to perform this change easily by
you are included in the manual of the Data Chip Change Package as well as a user manual covering the changes.
KEYBOARD OVERLAY CHANGES
Australia Post changes the postal charges as well as the services they are offering from time to time. These changes sometimes affect the
keyboard overlay design.
If this would become necessary you will be offered a new keyboard in case of a small change or a new keyboard is included in the Rate
Change Package as mentioned above. You can be assured that in case of any changes to the postal system in the future, the PS3000N can
be retrofitted easily by yourself in minutes.
Cyber-Calibration Procedures
Your scale is equipped with an AUTOMATIC calibration system. Should you require performing this Calibration by yourself you
need to have a reference weight set of 5 kg.
