INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Before beginning installation of your D Series Price Computing Scale, make certain the
instrument has been received in good condition. Carefully remove the instrument from the
shipping carton and inspect it for any evidence of damage (such as exterior dents or
scratches) that may have taken place during shipment. Keep the carton and packing material
for return shipment if it should become necessary. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to
file all claims for any damages or loss incurred during transit.
Placement
Place the scale in an environment free of excessive dust and moisture and on a stable,
vibration-free level surface away from direct sunlight and any rapidly moving air source
(heating/cooling vents, fans, etc.). This will prevent sudden temperature changes and air
currents that may result in unstable weight readings. Keep the area around the scale clear to
provide adequate air circulation and make certain the power cord is routed out of the way of
normal traffic.
CAUTION! DO NOT place the scale on any unstable cart, stand or table. The
scale may fall causing injury to the operator, and damage the unit, or proper
operation of the scale may be inhibited.
Level Adjustment
Check to make certain the scale is level. The level indicator
is located at the front of the scale. If the scale is not level
(the bubble will not be centered), loosen the locking ring on
all four (4) mounting feet and adjust them as required to
center the bubble and attain a level scale. Once the scale is
level, lock the mounting feet in place by tightening the
adjustment locking rings against the bottom of the scale.
Not Leveled
Leveled
Power Connection
The scale uses an external AC power adapter that converts the 110/120 VAC 50/60Hz wall
supply to the 12VDC power required by the scale. The scale also has circuitry necessary to
monitor and recharge the battery and is capable of operating the scale and recharging the
battery simultaneously.
NOTE: In areas subject to lightning strikes, additional protection (surge
suppressors) should be installed.

ANNUNCIATORS
Annunciators indicate the active mode or functions of the scale. The meaning of each
annunciator is described below.
Front - Operator Keypad and Display
Rear - Customer Display
ZERO
The ZERO annunciator is located to the left of the display and is selected to indicate that the
gross scale weight is zero.
NET
The NET annunciator is located to the left of the display and indicates the displayed weight is
the net weight. Net weight is determined by subtracting the tare weight from the gross or scale
weight. The tare weight, usually the weight of the container, is entered using the tare key.
Note that the NET annunciator is only active when a zero tare weight or tare weight value is
stored and the display is in the weight mode.
kg
The kg annunciator indicates weight displayed is in kilograms and the UNIT PRICE is per
kilogram.
lb
The lb annunciator indicates weight displayed is in pounds and the UNIT PRICE is per pound.
PRE-PACK
Indicates the scale is in the PRE-PACK mode. The PRE-PACK mode is used for repetitive
price computing.
[\
Indicates weight on scale is stable
Red Light indicates the battery is charging.
Green light indicates the battery is fully charged.
