The checkweigher application is included with the 1280 standard firmware. This application is a static
checkweigher with a stored low and high weight associated with an ID. A digital output is activated based on the
status of the weight. The digital output stores the ID, weight, status (under, accept, or over) and time/date in a
database. The print key can be pressed to print the last transaction’s ID, weight, status and time/date. Two softkeys
are available: Item and Setup Menu.
Select an Item
1. Press the Item softkey.
2. System prompts Enter ID to Checkweigh. Enter a stored ID with associated low and high weights.
3. The ID, low and high weights are displayed and the system waits for the threshold to be triggered.
Checkweigh
1. When the weight exceeds the threshold weight, the indicator checks that an ID was selected. If an ID has not
be selected, the system does nothing. If an ID has been selected, the system waits for standstill and compares
the gross or net weight (whichever mode Scale 1 is currently in) against the low and high weights.
• If the weight is less than the low weight, the system displays Under and turns on the Under output.
• If the weight is more than the high weight, the system displays Over and turns on the Over output.
• If the weight is more than the low weight and less than the high weight, the system displays Accept and
turns on the Accept output.
2. A record will be stored to the database with the ID, the weight, the status (under, accept or over) and
time/date.

updated as the weight or scale selected changes.
Select Scale
1. Press the Scale Select softkey to switch between scales.
2. There are two scales available. Typically one is used for sampling (smaller capacity) and one is used for
counting (larger capacity). This application works the same for both scales, or if only one scale is used for
both sampling and counting. The piece count is always referencing the current scale that is displayed.
Enter APW
Press the APW softkey to enter a new known APW for the current part.
Counting Pieces
The number of pieces will display. This number is continuously updated as the weight, scale selected or mode
selected changes. This includes adding pieces or removing pieces, as well as going to a negative net as pieces are
removed from a net zero weight. For example, if a full box was placed on the scale, Tare was pressed to tare off the
weight to net zero, and then the count pieces were removed, the scale would display a negative number.

• If multi-point values have previously been entered, values are reset to zero when the initial zero calibration is
performed.
• Zero Calibration and Span Calibration need to be performed before adding linearization points.
• Linear values must not duplicate Zero Calibration, Span Calibration or previous linear points.
4.2.3
Last Zero Calibration
This takes the last pushbutton zero in the system (from weigh mode) and uses it as the new zero reference point,
after which a new span calibration must be performed. This calibration cannot be performed when calibrating a
scale for the first time.
A last zero calibration is typically used on truck scales to allow a scale verification to become a calibration without
having to remove the test weights.

4.2.4
Temporary Zero Calibration
Temporary zero calibration temporarily zeros the displayed weight of a non-empty scale. After span calibration, the
difference between the temporary zero and the previously calibrated zero value is used as an offset.
A temporary zero calibration is typically used on hopper scales to calibrate the span without losing the original
zero calibration.
4.3
Scale Filtering
Digital filtering can be used to create a stable scale reading by removing environmental influences. The 1280 has
two filtering methods that can be selected; Adaptive Digital and Three Stage Filtering. Three Stage Filtering is
selected by default. In addition, the A/D sample rate and damping time constant can be set in this menu.
To enter scale filtering, press the Scales icon
. From the Scales menu, select Filtering. The following
parameters are available.
Parameter
Sample Rate
Digital Filter Type
Damping Time
Constant (seconds)
Default
Description
Selects measurement rate, in samples per second, of the analog-to-digital
converter.
The sample rate refers to how many times per second the analog signal is
converted to digital. It should be set first. Better stability is achieved with a lower
sample rate setting, so 7.5 Hz is more stable than 960 Hz.
Three Stage Filter Sets the filter type to be used. See Section 4.3.1 for more information on the
adaptive digital filter. See Section 4.3.2 for more information on the three stage
filter.

Adaptive Digital Filter
The adaptive digital filter has two parameters to set the response time and observe noise (instability): Filter
Sensitivity and Filter Threshold (Display Divisions). These parameters display in blue text after the Digital Filter Type is
set to Adaptive Digital Filter.
Default
Description
Filter Sensitivity
Parameter
Light
Filter Threshold
10
Controls the stability and response time of the scale.
• Heavy – results in an output that is more stable but will settle slowly. Small
changes in weight data (a few grads) on the scale base will not be seen quickly.
• Medium – has a quicker response time than heavy, but more stability than light.
• Light – fastest response to small weight changes, but less stable.
Digital filter cutout threshold (in display divisions). A weight change exceeding the
threshold will reset the filtered values. Must be set above the noise disturbances in the
system. If set to zero, the filter is disabled.
Table 4-9. Adaptive Digital Filter Menu Descriptions
Scale Configuration
57
Filtering Threshold
Digital filtering threshold should be set for the amount of observed noise in the system. This parameter can be set
in the range of 0 to 99999 display divisions. When a new sampled weight value is acquired, the adaptive digital
filter compares the new value to the previous (filtered) output value. If the difference between the new value and
the previous output value is greater than the Threshold parameter (displayed division), the adaptive digital filter
output is reset. The newly acquired sample value replaces the filtered output. If the difference between the new
value and the previous output value is less than the Threshold parameter, the two values are averaged together
using a weighed average. The weighed average is based on the time the system has been stable and the selected
sensitivity setting.
The filter can be set to Off by entering 0 in the Threshold parameter.
1. To determine the initial setting for the threshold, first set the value to 0.
Example: If a heavy-capacity scale (10000 x 5 lb) produces vibration-related readings of up to 50 lb, 
with occasional spikes to 75 lb, record 50 lb as the threshold weight value.
2. In weigh mode, determine the amount of instability that is present. Convert this instability to display
divisions.
3. Set the threshold to the number of display divisions of instability.
threshold_weight_value / display_divisions
In the example in Step 2, with a threshold weight value of 50 lb and a display divisions value of 5 lb: 50 / 5 = 10.
Threshold should be set to 10D for this example.
4. Further tweak this value, along with the sensitivity, to achieve the desired results. Set sensitivity for the
desired response for weight changes; light for less stable but quicker responses, heavy for more stable but
slower responses.
4.3.2
Three Stage Filter
The Three Stage Digital filter is a simple rolling average filter with three successive stages. The values assigned to
each of the three stages determines the number of A/D readings averaged by that stage. The output value of each
stage is passed on to the next stage at each A/D update. The overall filtering effect can be expressed by adding the
values assigned to the filter stages and subtracting two.
Example: If the filter stages were set to 16, 4 and 4, the overall filtering effect is 22 ((16+4+4)-2=22). With this
configuration, a step change on the input would be fully realized on the display in 22 A/D samples. Setting the filters to 1
((1+1+1)-2=1) effectively disables the Three Stage Filter.
Parameter

Description

Specifies the number of consecutive A/D readings that must fall outside the
Filter Threshold before filtering is suspended.
Sets a threshold value, in display divisions. When a number of consecutive
A/D readings (Filter Sensitivity) falls outside of this threshold value (when
compared to the output of the filter), filtering is suspended and the A/D value
is sent straight through the filter. Filtering will not be suspended if the
threshold is set to None.

of A/D conversions per update that are averages to obtain the displayed
reading. A higher number gives a more accurate display by minimizing the
effect of a few noisy readings, but slows down the response time of the
indicator.
Enables RattleTrap filtering.
Table 4-10. Three Stage Digital Filter
Filter Sensitivity and Threshold
The Three Stage Digital filter can be used by itself to eliminate vibration effects, but heavy filtering also increases
response time. Filter Sensitivity and Threshold can be used to temporarily override filter averaging to improve
response time.

1280 Enterprise Series
Setting the Digital Filter Parameters
Use the following procedure to determine vibration effects on the scale and optimize the digital filtering
configuration.
1. In setup mode, set the digital filter parameters to 1. Set Filter Threshold to None. Return indicator to weigh
mode.
2. Remove all weight from the scale. Watch the indicator display to determine the amount of stability of the
scale. Record the weight below which all but a few readings fall. This value is used to calculate the Threshold
parameter value in Step 4.
Example, if a heavy-capacity scale (10000 x 5 lb) produces vibration-related readings of up to 50 lb, 
with occasional spikes to 75 lb, record 50 lb as the threshold weight value.
3. Place the indicator in setup mode and set the Stage Filter Value parameters to eliminate the vibration effects on
the scale. (Leave Threshold set to NONE.) Find the lowest effective value for the Stage Filter Value parameters.
4. Calculate the Threshold parameter value by converting the weight value recorded in Step 2 to display
divisions:
threshold_weight_value / display_divisions
In the example in Step 2, with a threshold weight value of 50 lb and a display divisions value of 5 lb: 50 / 5
= 10. Threshold should be set to 10D for this example.
5. Set the Sensitivity parameter high enough to ignore transient peaks. Longer transients (typically caused by
lower vibration frequencies) will cause more consecutive out-of-band readings, so Sensitivity should be set
higher to counter low frequency transients. Reconfigure as necessary to find the lowest effective value for the
Sensitivity parameter.
RattleTrap
RattleTrap filtering uses a vibration-dampening algorithm to automatically provide the best features of digital
filtering. It is particularly effective for eliminating vibration effects or mechanical interference from nearby
machinery. Using RattleTrap filtering can automatically eliminate environmental influences, but will usually
increase response time over standard digital filtering. If RattleTrap is set to on, sensitivity and threshold parameter
settings are ignored.

Serial Scale Type
The Serial Scale type allows other scale indicators to send gross or net weight data to the 1280 using a continuous
stream of data through a communications port.
4.6.1
Legal for Trade
For a Legal for Trade serial scale, the data must contain the unit of measure, mode of operation and status (in
addition to the weight). The configuration of a Legal for Trade serial scale is very limited as it acts similarly to a
remote display. For this reason, the scale cannot be tared or zeroed on the 1280 but must be done on the host
indicator.
If the data packet for a Legal for Trade serial scale does not contain all the necessary information, or the
information is incorrect, the scale will show an error.
60
1280 Enterprise Series
4.6.2
Industrial Scales
For industrial scales, the only data needed is the gross weight. The data can (but does not need to) include the unit
of measure, mode or status. If the unit of measure is included, it can be used to change the capacity label on the
1280 display. If not, the 1280 will always assume it is primary units.
If the mode is included, the scale will display an error if anything other than the gross mode is indicated. If the
mode is not included, the weight is assumed to be gross.
If status is included, it is ignored with the exception of the center of zero indicator. The serial scale cannot
determine if the reading is within the center of zero band. The only way to show the center of zero band is to have
the host indicator include that information (using the status token) in the data.
Though the 1280 cannot zero an industrial serial scale (zeroing must take place on the host indicator), it is possible
to take a tare and display the resulting net weight.
Digital filtering is available with the use of an industrial serial scale. If digital filtering is enabled and the display
Note division size of the incoming weight data is greater than the display division size of the industrial serial scale
configuration, the displayed weight will count by the smaller division size, due to the averaging nature of the
filters.
4.6.3
Configuration
The 1280 supports serial scale data input on any of the RS-232/RS-485 ports, as well as the Ethernet TCP/IP.
1. In the Communications menu, select the desired port.
2. Set the Input Type to either Legal for Trade or Industrial Serial Scale. Set the remaining parameters as necessary
to match the parameters of the incoming serial data.
3. In the Scales menu, set the scale kind of the scale to either Legal for Trade Serial Scale or Industrial Serial Scale.
4. Select the communication port to link to the selected scale. Only communications ports that have been
configured as serial scales will be displayed.
5. Set the capacity, decimal point, count-by and units to match that of the incoming data. This is done so the
capacity label (shown on the display near the weight) is correct. To configure the actual format of the data, go
to the Scales/General tab and select a stream format (1-4).
6. Navigate to the Formats menu, and select Stream Formats.
7. Select the format (1-4) in the left pane. The current stream format will be shown. Either select one of the
pre-defined built-in formats, or create a custom format to match the input data format. If necessary, set the
token values. See Section 7.2 on page 80 for more information about configuring the stream format.
If using a Legal for Trade serial scale, there are additional settings under the Scales/General tab; these include
enabling the accumulator and visibility. If using an industrial serial scale, there are additional general settings for
the tare function, overload and motion determination, as well as filter settings under the Scales/Filtering tab.
The flow of data into the indicator must be continuous – if the flow is interrupted for more than a second, the
Note scale will show an error.
No matter the type, if the data received does not match exactly that which is expected (as defined by the
stream format configuration), the data is thrown out and the scale will show an error.

Local/Remote Operation
Local/remote support provides a function equivalent to that of an indicator via web server with network access.
The display on the local indicator is also displayed at the remote unit, and keypad input from the remote unit is
treated the same as keypad input on the local indicator.
1. Connect both indicators to the same Ethernet TCP/IP or Wi-Fi network.
2. Look up the local indicator’s IP address by pressing the Wi-Fi symbol in Weigh mode (to bring up the
Network Information screen), or look it up under the Communications menu in Configuration mode.
3. On the remote indicator, use the Features/General menu to change the Local/Remote Server Address to the IP
address of the local indicator.
4. When in weigh mode, the remote will display a copy of the local indicator's display. Key presses on the
remote indicator are passed back to the local to perform their intended function.
Note
• It is recommended to use static IP addresses (set DHCP to Off) when using the local/remote feature, to avoid
connection issues.
• For an indicator to show its own display, the Local/Remote Server Address must be set to 127.0.0.1. The
display is treated as a remote if any other IP address is entered.
• If the configuration switch is pressed on the remote indicator, the remotes configuration menu is shown on the
remote only. If the configuration switch is pressed on the local indicator, the locals configuration menu is shown
on both indicators.
• If the local indicator goes off-line, the remote indicator’s display is blank, or has dashes for the weight.
• The remote indicator can only display the local’s display and return key/touchscreen presses. Weight data is
not available at the remote indicator for functions such as printing, serial data streaming or setpoints.
Using an Internet Browser as a Remote Display
A virtual display can be viewed on a computer or mobile device using an Internet browser that supports HTML 5
and Javascript, such as Internet Explorer v10 and newer, Chrome v30 and newer or Firefox v32 and newer. In
addition to viewing, touchscreen elements can be activated by clicking on them in the browser window.
To use this feature, the 1280 and computer/mobile device must be connected to the same network. In the browser’s
address bar (URL), type the 1280’s IP address, using TCP port 3000.
Example: If the 1280's IP address is 192.168.0.1, then navigate the browser to http://192.168.0.1:3000.
6.3

Some data is dependent upon the ticket format, see Section 7.0 on page 76 to format a ticket to contain the tokens
for weight, date and time, scale number, alibi ID.
Checksum
The checksum is calculated when the weighment is stored in alibi storage. When the data is retrieved, the
checksum is re-calibrated and compared to the initial value. If the values match, the data is transmitted. If they do
not match, the 1280 will send an Invalid Record response.
The checksum is for internal use only and not retrievable, since all data is stored internally. External Alibi storage
is not supported.

Digital I/O
Digital inputs can be set to provide indicator functions, including all keypad functions. Digital inputs are active low
(0 VDC) and inactive high (5 VDC).
Digital outputs are typically used to control relays that drive other equipment. Outputs are designed to sink, rather
than source, switching current. Each output is normally an open collector circuit, capable of sinking 20 mA when
active. Digital outputs are used to change a relay state when the digital output is active (low, 0 VDC) with reference
to a 5 VDC supply.

Description
Batch
Automatically checks the previous weight-based setpoint to verify that the setpoint
weight value is satisfied in a standstill condition.
• If the previous setpoint is not satisfied when at standstill, the AUTOJOG
setpoint activates the digital output of the previous weight-based setpoint for a
period of time, specified on the Value parameter (in tenths of a second).
• The AUTOJOG process repeats until the previous weight-based setpoint is
satisfied when the scale is at standstill.

Batch processing signal.
• The digital output associated with this setpoint is activated whenever a batch
sequence is in progress.
• No value is required for this setpoint.
Tracks the progress of a batch sequence based on a timer.
• The timer value, in tenths of a second, determines the length of time allowed
between start and end setpoints.
• Start and End parameters are used to specify the start and end setpoints.
• If the End setpoint is not reached before the timer expires, the digital output
associated with this setpoint is activated.
Allows a digital output to remain active over a specified portion of the batch
sequence.
• Type 1 (VALUE=0): The digital output associated with this setpoint becomes
active when the Start setpoint becomes the current batch step and remains
active until the End setpoint becomes the current batch step.
• Type 2 (VALUE > 0): If a non-zero value is specified for the Value parameter,
that value represents the timer, in tenths of a second, for this setpoint. The
digital output associated with this setpoint becomes active when the Start
setpoint becomes the current batch step and remains active until the timer
expires.
Requires a specific group of digital inputs to be in a low (0 VDC) state to satisfy the
setpoint.
The digital output associated with this setpoint is held in a low (0 VDC) state until the
inputs selected for the digital input mask are all in a low state.
Performs functions when the internal clock time of the indicator matches the
specified setpoint time.
This setpoint is always satisfied.
• It is typically used to provide an endpoint for true/false branching batch
routines.
This setpoint is never satisfied.
• It is used to branch to a designated setpoint in true/false branching batch
routines in which the batch will not continue through the normal sequence of
batch setpoints.

Description
Setpoint Value:
• Weight-based – specifies the target weight value, 0–9999999
• Time-based – specifies time in 0.1 second intervals, range 0–65535
• Counter – specifies the number of consecutive batches to run, range 0–65535
Select Scale 1-8.
Specifies if the setpoint is satisfied when the weight is higher or lower than the setpoint
value, within a band established around the value, or outside of that band. In a batch
sequence with:
• Trip = Higher – the associated digital output is active until the setpoint value is
exceeded.
• Trip = Lower – the output is active until the weight goes below the setpoint value.
• Trip = Inband – the setpoint is satisfied when the weight is within a band
established around the value.
• Trip = Outband – the setpoint is satisfied when the weight is outside a band
established around the value, excluding the value.
When Trip is set to Higher/Lower, specifies a band around the setpoint value that must
be exceeded before a setpoint that is off can trip on again.
Hysteresis

When Trip is set to Inband/Outband, this specifies a weight equal to half the band
width. The band established around the setpoint value is Value ± Band Value.
Relative Setpoint Number
1
For relative setpoints, specifies the number of the relative setpoint. The target weight for
this setpoint is determined as follows:
• Positive Relative setpoints – value of the relative setpoint plus the value of the
Positive Relative setpoint
• Negative Relative setpoints – value of the relative setpoint minus the value of the
Negative Relative setpoint
• Percent Relative setpoints – percentage (specified on the Value parameter of the

Description
Preact helps compensate for material in a freefall state to ensure targets are met.
Specifies the preact value for setpoints with Preact Type set to On, Learn, or Flow. Depending on
the Trip setting specified for the setpoint, it is adjusted up or down by the Preact Adjust value. The
range is +/- 0-999999.
For setpoints with Preact Type set to Learn, Preact Adjust specifies a decimal number of the
percentage of error correction applied (0.5 = 50%, 1.0 = 100%), each time an adjustment is made.
The range is 0-100.
For setpoints with Preact Type set to Learn, Preact Stability specifies the time (0.1 second), to wait
for standstill before adjusting the Preact Value. Setting this parameter to a value greater than zero
disables the learn process if standstill is not achieved in the specified interval. The range is
0-65535.
For setpoints with Preact Type set to Learn, Preact Count specifies the number of batches before
the Preact Value is recalculated.
The default value (1) recalculates the Preact Value after every batch cycle. The range is 0-65535.

Batching Switch
The batching switch option, PN 19369, comes as a complete unit in an FRP enclosure, with
legend plate, emergency stop switch and a run/start/abort 3-way switch.
Both switches are wired into the indicator’s digital I/O terminal strip as shown in
Figure 10-14.
Once cables and switches have been connected to the indicator, use the setup switch to place
the indicator in setup mode. Use the DIG I/O menu (see Section 8.0 on page 83) to configure
digital input and output functions.
When configuration is complete, exit setup mode. Initialize the batch by turning the 3-way
switch to Abort, then unlock the Stop button (the Stop button must be in the Out position to
allow the batch process to run). The batching switch is now ready to use.
If no digital input is assigned to Batch Run, batching proceeds as if Batch Run
WARNING were always on: the batch will start when the 3-way switch is turned to Run, but
the Stop button will not function.

AA = Fieldbus card (with any module)
12.2 Option Card Firmware
The OPTVERSION#s serial command, where s is the slot number, can be used to return the version of the
firmware installed on the option cards. If the command returns NO CARD, then either there is not a card installed
or the installed card in the slot specified is not recognized by the system. Alternatively, a DUMPVERSIONS
command will return the versions of all installed option cards.
12.3 Updating Option Card Firmware
Use the following instructions to update option card firmware.
1. Enter configuration mode.
2. Send the EDP command ERASECARD#n, where n is the slot (1-6), with the option card needing the firmware
update) to the 1280 to erase the current firmware from the option card. The 1280 will respond: Reenter
command to verify card erase.
3. Resend ERASECARD#n a second time to verify. The 1280 will respond OK. If any other EDP commands are
sent prior to the repeat command the action will be canceled.
WARNING This process cannot be reversed.
4. Power off the 1280 and remove the option card from the enclosure.
5. Connect a micro USB type B connector from the PC to the option card.
6. Verify that a red LED is blinking on the option card before proceeding. Windows will prompt that it has

EDP Commands
The 1280 indicator can be controlled by a personal computer connected to one of the indicator communication
ports. Control is provided by a set of commands that can simulate front panel key press functions, return and
change setup parameters, and perform reporting functions. The commands provide the capability to print
configuration data or to save that data to an attached personal computer. This section describes the EDP command
set and procedures for saving and transferring data using the communication ports.
The EDP command set is divided into several groups as shown in this section.
When the indicator processes a command, it either responds with a value (for reporting commands, or when
querying parameter settings), or with the message OK. The OK response verifies that the command was received
and has been executed. If the command is unrecognized or cannot be executed, the indicator responds with ??.
15.1 Key Press Commands
Key press serial commands simulate pressing the keys on the front panel of the indicator. These commands can be
used in both setup and weigh mode. Several of the commands serve as pseudo keys, providing functions that are
not represented by a key on the front panel.

Table 15-4. Scales Commands (Continued)
15.5 1280 Calibration using Serial Commands
Use the following instructions to calibrate the 1280 using serial commands. For information on how to calibrate the
1280 using the front panel, see Section 4.2 on page 54.
The indicator must respond with OK after each step. If it does not, the calibration procedure will not work and
Note may have to be done again.
1. Enter configuration mode (see Section 3.0 on page 46).
2. To start the calibration process, send the command SC.CALSTART.n#s. Replace “s” with the scale number,
and “n” with 1 for a standard calibration, 2 to use the last calibrated zero or 3 to use the scale’s temporary
zero.
3. For a standard calibration, remove all weight from the scale (except hooks or chains that will be needed to
attach weights). For last or temporary zero, skip to step 5.
4. Send the command SC.WZERO#s to calibrate the zero point. Wait 10 seconds before proceeding.
5. Apply the span calibration weight to the scale.
6. Send the command SC.WVAL#s=xxxxx, where xxxxx is the exact value of the span calibration weight applied to
the scale.
EDP Commands
123
7. Send the command SC.WSPAN#s to calibrate the span point. Wait 10 seconds before proceeding. Continue on
to step 8 to calibrate additional linearization points, or proceed to step 12.
8. Apply weight equal to the first linearization point to the scale.
9. Send the command SC.WLINVn#s=xxxxx, where n is the linearization point number (1-4) and xxxxx is the exact
value of the weight applied.
10. Send the command SC.WLIN.Cn#s to calibrate the linearization point. Wait 10 seconds before proceeding.
11. Repeat steps 9 through 11 for up to four total linearization points.
12. If hooks or chains were used to attach the weights, remove all weight, including the hooks and chains, and
send the command SC.REZERO#s to remove the zero offset.
13. Send the command SC.CALEND#s to complete the calibration process. Save the calibration values. Wait 10
seconds before proceeding.
14. Send the command KCOMMIT to commit the new values to memory.
15. Send the command KSAEEXIT to return to weigh mode (or press the Save and Exit icon on the display).

15.7 Batching Control Commands
The commands listed in Table 15-17 provide batching control through a communications port.
Command
BATSTART
Description
Values
Batch Start
If the BATRUN digital input is active or not assigned, the BATSTART command
can be used to start the batch program.
BATSTOP
Batch Stop
Stops an active batch and turns off all associated digital outputs. Requires a
Batch Start to resume processing.
BATPAUSE
Batch Pause
Pauses an active batch and turns off all digital outputs except those associated
with Concurrent and Timer setpoints. Processing is suspended until the
indicator receives a Batch Start signal. Pressing the BATSTRT digital input,
BATSTART serial command, Batch Start softkey or the StartBatch function (in
iRite) resumes the batch and re-energizes all digital outputs turned off by the
Batch Pause.
BATRESET
Batch Reset
Stops the program and resets the batch program to the first batch step. Use the
BATRESET command after making changes to the batch configuration.
BATSTATUS
Batch Status
Returns XYYY where X is S (if the batch is stopped), P (if the batch is paused), 
R (if the batch is running); and YYY is the setpoint number the batch is currently
on (1-100).
Unless otherwise specified, n= Scale Number, 1 through 8. If the scale number is omitted, the value returned is for the currently
selected scale.
Table 15-17. Batching Control Commands
15.8 Database Commands
The commands listed in Table 15-18 can be used to create and maintain databases in the 1280. Except for the
DB.DELALL command, all of the database commands require an extension to identify the number of the database
within the memory.
Command
Description
DB.ALIAS#n
Get or set database name
DB.CLEAR#n
Clear database contents
DB.DATA#n
Get or set database contents
DB.SCHEMA#n
Get or set database structure
DB.DELALL
Delete all databases and database contents
n represents the database number (n = 1-128).
Each command must be terminated with a carriage return character (<CR>, ASCII 13).
Table 15-18. Database Commands
db.alias
The DB.ALIAS command is used to get or set the alias used by iRite programs to reference the specified database.
Each database alias must be unique among all databases and adhere to the following rules: 8 character maximum;
must begin with an alpha character or an underscore; can only contain A–Z, a–z, 0–9, or an underscore (_).
Example. The following command assigns an alias of TRUCKS_2 to the first database:
DB.ALIAS#1=TRUCKS_2<CR>
Sending the DB.ALIAS command
alone, without assigned data, returns the current database alias.
db.clear
To clear the contents of a database, send the following command:
DB.CLEAR#n
Where:
n is the database number
The 1280 responds with OK if the command is successful, ?? if unsuccessful.
db.data
The DB.DATA command can be used to send data to or retrieve data from the 1280.
Data can be sent to the indicator using the following command:
DB.DATA#n = data{ | }<CR>
132
1280 Enterprise Series
Where:
n is the database number
data represents a single cell of a row of data
{ | } is a pipe character (ASCII 124), used to delimit cell data. If the data being sent is not the last cell of the
row, append the pipe character to the data to indicate that more data is coming for that particular row. If the
data being sent is the last cell of the row, do not append the pipe character.
If the command is accepted, the 1280 responds with OK; if not, it responds with ??.
Example. The following commands place the data shown in Table 15-19 into the first database:
DB.DATA#1=this|<CR>
DB.DATA#1=is|<CR>
DB.DATA#1=a|<CR>
DB.DATA#1=test<CR>
DB.DATA#1=aaa|<CR>
DB.DATA#1=bbb|<CR>
DB.DATA#1=ccc|<CR>
DB.DATA#1=ddd<CR>

Table 15-19. Database Commands Example
Sending the DB.DATA command alone, without assigned data, returns the database contents:
DB.DATA#n<CR>
The 1280 responds with the entire contents of the database. Returned data is cell-delimited with the pipe character
(ASCII 124) and row-delimited with carriage returns (ASCII 13).
For example, the following command could be used to return the contents of database 1:
DB.DATA#1<CR>
If the database contents are the records shown in Table 15-19, the indicator responds with the following data, using
pipe characters and carriage returns to delimit the database cells and rows, respectively:
this| is| a| test<CR>aaa| bbb|ccc|ddd<CR>
There is no end of database notification at the end of the DB.DATA command transmission. Use a receive
Note time-out to determine command completion. The time-out value will vary based on baud rate.
Determine the number of records currently in the database both prior to and after sending the db.data command to
verify that the correct number of records are received. The number of records can be determined with the
DB.SCHEMA command.
db.schema
The DB.SCHEMA command is used to get or set the structure of a database.
DB.SCHEMA#n<CR>
The 1280 responds to the command above by returning the following:
<Max Records>,<Current Record Count>,
<Column Name>,<Data Type>,<Data Size>,...<CR>
The <Column Name>, <Data Type>, and <Data Size> elements repeat for each column in the database.
The <Column Name> follows the rules for alias names: 8 character maximum; must begin with an alpha
character or an underscore; can only contain A–Z, a–z, 0–9, or an underscore (_).
