INTRODUCTION
This manual was created to help you install and learn all about the functional possibilities of the purchased
indicator.
The instrument is suitable for use in various weighing environments.
Not only does it have all the normal features of high-precision scales, but it also gives you the possibility to
work in specific environments due to the functioning modes contained in the software implemented in the
FLASH MEMORY on the internal board. This makes the instrument extremely flexible and it can be used in
many different industrial applications linked to weighing. The touch screen, the numerical and function
keyboard, allow the operator an easy and immediate use and provide the microcontroller with DATA ENTRY
functions in addition to the normal weighing functions. The input/output allows the instrument to control
various external devices, to receive external commands, control a printer and communicate with a personal
computer or to be inserted in a network of weight indicators controlled by a PC.
WARNING
Please note that this instrument is covered by a warranty and MUST NOT BE OPENED BY THE
USER for any reason whatsoever. Any attempt to repair or modify the unit exposes the user to the
risk of electric shock and will invalidate the entire warranty.
If any problems are found in the unit or with the system in which it is used, the fact must be
communicated to the manufacturer or the dealer from whom it was purchased.
In any case, DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY before taking any action.
Do not pour liquids on the weight indicator.
Do not use solvents to clean the weight indicator.
Do not expose the instrument to direct sunlight nor place it near heat sources.
Place or anchor the weight indicator and platform on a non-vibrating base.
All the connections of the indicator have to be made respecting the rules applicable in the zone and in
the installing environment.
Everything not expressly described in this manual has to be considered as improper use of the equipment.

WEIGHING PROCEDURE
The program allows to calculate the centre of gravity coordinates of a vehicle and to weigh vehicles with 2
or more wheels, through two different modes:
- Wheel weighing: it allows to know the vehicle weight through a single weigh; the system is made
up of a number of platforms equal to the number of resting points of the vehicle that is to be
weighed (wheels, axles, etc). The display simultaneously shows the weight of the single scales, the
total weight (sum) and the centre of gravity coordinates.
- Axle weighing: it allows to weigh a vehicle through the acquisition and totalisation of each single
axle / part of vehicle. While weighing, the instrument simultaneously shows the weight of the
single scales and the accumulated axle total.
In both functioning modes, the weight of each vehicle (PARTIAL TOTAL) can be printed and stored, for
subsequent verifications. Furthermore there are 2 total levels (GENERAL TOTAL and GRAND TOTAL),
automatically increased at the end of each weighing operation of the vehicle, which may be cleared and
printed independently from each other.
The data that is increased is:
- WEIGH NUMBER
- GROSS WEIGHT TOTAL
- NET WEIGHT TOTAL
- TARE TOTAL
6.1
Active scales setting
Touch the area of the Figure 9, in order to set the number of active scales that are being weighed. It is
possible to change this value also by selecting a vehicle with the number of connected scales different from
0.

Centre of gravity calculation
The instrument is able to calculate and print, the centre of gravity coordinates of the vehicle which one is
weighing; to carry out this operation, one must enter the coordinates of the centre of scales which one is

WEIGHING PROCEDURE
using (which correspond also the ones of the vehicle wheels). By pressing
of the scales present are requested.
For unit of measure and number of decimals of the coordinates, see
, the coordinates
Gravity centre calculation.
The first main screen of display shows the centre of gravity coordinates. Therefore, through the MENU 
Printout  Simple printout, it is possible to print the centre of gravity coordinates of the vehicle which one
is weighing.
NOTE: the weight of each scale must be greater than 0, otherwise the coordinates of the centre of gravity
are not calculated.
EXAMPLE: to calculate the centre of gravity of a 4-wheel vehicle with a weighing system having the scales
arranged as shown in the figure below, one must insert 4 as number of connected scale, position the
vehicle on the scales, press the centre of gravity area in the first main screen and enter the following

Wheel weighing
To weigh a vehicle through a single weigh follow the steps below:
1. Change the number of active scales, if necessary
2. Select, if required, the vehicle to be linked to the weigh
3. Carry out a cycle of zero
4. Position the vehicle on the scale and wait for the weight to become stable
5. Touch the toolbar
button
6. The display will show the screen of Figure 11
7. If the scale captures the weight correctly it will execute the printout of the weight of each wheel
and axle, if configured
8. If the scale is unable to capture the weight, because of instability for example, the screen of Figure
12 is displayed
9. Touch Yes to try to get the weight again, touch No to cancel the weigh
10. Touch the toolbar
button
11. It will display the main screen again with the information about the weigh (Figure 13) and execute
the printout of the total weight, decreased of the tare value, if inserted
12. Remove the vehicle from the scale

Axle weighing
To weigh a vehicle through more weighs follow the steps below:
1. Change the number of active scales, if necessary
2. Select, if required, the vehicle to be linked to the weigh
3. Carry out a cycle of zero
4. Position the first part of vehicle on the scale and wait for the weight to become stable
5. Touch the toolbar
button
6. The display will show the screen of Figure 11

Totals updating
Every time one carries out a totalisation, the partial total is increased of the weight on the scales.
After weighing the vehicle, when the
increased of the current partial total.

is pressed, the general total and the grand total are
Cancel the last weigh
If a wrong totalisation has been made, it is possible to cancel the executed weigh.
In MENU  AF08 functions  Cancel last weigh, one can delete the last executed totalisation from the
PARTIAL TOTAL. In case the vehicle has already been completely weighed and therefore the totals have
been increased with the vehicle weight, the cancellation deletes the total weight of the last vehicle from
the GENERAL TOTAL and from the GRAND TOTAL, and restores the tare of the vehicle, if it has been
configured earlier.
6.7
Manual or automatic totalisation
The end of weighing cycle, normally done manually with
button, can be done automatically by
setting the weighs after which the total weight of the vehicle will be printed through the
button in
the third main screen.
For example, if one needs to weigh a tractor with a trailer having a total of 4 axles, one sets 4 in this step;
after having weighed 4 axles, the vehicle total is automatically calculated and printed and zeroed.
6.8
Totalisation field
It is possible to define a weight interval (between 0 and the scale capacity) inside of which it is possible to
carry out a totalisation and outside of which the totalization is not accepted. Use of the totalling field is
particularly useful when totalling is done automatically with the weight stable.
MENU  AF08 functions  Minimum (Maximum) threshold.

6.10 Conditions for totalisation
With APPROVED instrument:
- The MANUAL totalisation works with a POSITIVE NET WEIGHT of at least 20 divisions
-
For totalisation reenabling see
Weighing mode reactivation
The totalisation excludes the simple printout and viceversa
With NON APPROVED instrument:
- The MANUAL totalisation works with a NET WEIGHT greater than zero
-
For totalisation reenabling see
Weighing mode reactivation
The totalisation does not exclude the simple printout
6.11 Progressives
6.11.1 Additional value
In MENUProgressivesAdditional value it’s possible to set a value of up to 6 digits, which is summed to
each totalisation, and can be recalled in the printing. The same value is linked independently to three total
types (PARTIAL, GENERAL, and GRAND TOTAL), in other words, it is possible to print three different values
which will be cleared with the clearing of the relative total.
6.11.2 Progressive digits
In MENUprogressivesProgressive digits it’s possible to set the number of digits with which the TICKET
PROGRESSIVE and LOT PROGRESSIVE are printed.
The number of settable digits varies from 4 to 16, organised in this way:
- if the actual digits of the total are less than the number of digits set in this step, the difference is
filled with some spaces.
40
WEIGHING PROCEDURE
-
if the actual digits are greater than the number of digits set in this step, only the ones actually
entered are taken into consideration (counting from right to left).
The alignment of the total fields is on the left.
NOTE: The number of settable digits DOES NOT INCLUDE the comma.
6.11.3 Ticket progressive
In MENUprogressiveTicket progressive, it’s possible to modify or clear the TICKET PROGRESSIVE (up to
5 digits).
The TICKET PROGRESSIVE is a progressive number which increments of one upon the first totalisation
subsequent to the clearing of the partial total.
6.11.4 Lot progressive
In MENUProgressiveLot progressive, one obtains the clearing of the AUTOMATIC LOT (up to 6 digits);
before carrying out the actual clearing, one is asked to confirm or cancel the operation.
The AUTOMATIC LOT is a progressive number which increments of one upon the first totalisation
subsequent to the clearing of the general total.
