5.1.2. Power source
Earth ground the indicator to prevent electrical shock or
indicator malfunction.
Before connecting the indicator to the power source, read the instruction manual
thoroughly.
Do not connect the indicator to the power source before the installation is complete.
To avoid electrical shock, do not handle the power cable with a wet hand.
Earth ground the indicator. Do not share the ground line with other electrical power
equipment.
The power requirement is 100 VAC to 240 VAC and the frequency is 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
Use a stable power source free from instantaneous power failure or noise.
To avoid a malfunction, do not share the power line with other devices.
The output voltage of a load cell is a very sensitive signal. Keep all electrical noise
sources away from the load cell and load cell cable.
Use shielded I/O cables. Connect the cable shield to the F.G. terminal or the
indicator housing.
AD-4408A
Page 12
5.2.
Load Cell Connection
Connect the load cell cable to the terminals as shown below.
Use a 6-wire shielded cable to connect a load cell, especially when the cable is long
or when summing multiple load cells, to avoid drift caused by changes in
temperature.
If the cable is short, a 4-wire shielded cable with terminals 1 and 2 (EXC+ and
SEN+) and terminals 3 and 4 (SEN- and EXC-) connected may be used, but the
error increases when summing multiple load cells and the cable is long.

6.1.
General Function
6.1.1. Zero adjustment
Zero adjustment is a function to set the gross weight to zero. It is performed by
pressing the ZERO key.
The zero adjustment range is set in Calf05 (zero adjustment range) and is
expressed in percent of the weighing capacity with the calibration zero point as the
center.
Zero adjustment is disabled, even within the zero adjustment range, when the A/D
converter overflow occurs.
A ZERO error is output if zero adjustment is not performed.
The zero value is stored in the non-volatile memory and is maintained, even if the
power is disconnected.
Clearing the zero value is performed using the F key assigned to clear the zero value.
Alternately, apply power to the indicator while holding the TARE key, or with the
indicator in the OFF mode, press and hold the TARE key and press the ON/OFF
key, to clear the zero value.
Functions related to zero adjustment
z Calf05: Changes the zero adjustment range. (0 to 100%)
z Calf10: Enables or disables zero adjustment when unstable.
z Calf16: Enables or disables power-ON zero (function to zero upon power-ON).
6.1.2. Zero tracking
Zero tracking is a function to track the weight drift around the zero point to maintain
zero.
The zero tracking time is set in Calf06 (zero tracking time) and the zero tracking
band is set in Calf07 (zero tracking band). When the weight drift is within the
specified ranges, zero adjustment is performed automatically.
A ZERO error is not output even if zero tracking is not performed.
Functions related to zero tracking
z Calf06: Changes the zero tracking time. (0.0 to 5.0 seconds)
z Calf07: Changes the zero tracking band. (0.0 to 9.9 d)

actual load
Calibration-related
function
Digital span
All data initialization
Calibration is performed using a calibration weight.
• Zero calibration: Adjusts the indicator so that the
measured value will be zero when no
load is applied to the load cell.
• Span calibration: Enter the calibration weight value and
place the calibration weight on the load
cell.
When the indicator enters the mode of calibration with an
actual load, the tare weight and the zero value will be
automatically cleared.
Setting basic constant values of the indicator such as the
minimum division and weighing capacity and other data
directly related to weighing is performed.
Setting the parameters for digital span calibration is also
performed.
Calibration is performed without an actual load, by keying in
the load cell output voltage (mV/V).
• Input voltage at zero: Key in the load cell output at zero.
• Input voltage at span: Key in the load cell output at span.
(Load cell output at full capacity – load cell output at zero)
• Calibration weight value at span:
Key in the calibration weight value
corresponding to the input voltage at
span.
(The input voltage at span is related to the weight value.)
Clears all the data such as zero value, tare weight,
calibration data and function data.
NOTE: All the data set in the calibration mode is stored in the FRAM.

Three data transfer modes are available; stream, auto printing and manual printing.
Stream mode
Auto printing mode
Manual printing mode
Transmits data in sync with the display update rate. If
the indicator can not catch up with the update rate
because of the baud rate, the transmission is paused
until the next updating.
The transmitted data is the same as what is being
displayed. Data that is not displayed is never
transmitted.
Transmits data once only when the weight value with
5 d or greater is stable.
For another transmission, the weight value must fall
below 5 d once.
Transmits data when the F key, assigned as the
manual print command, is pressed.
