Section 1. Unpacking and Installation
Unpacking
Before unpacking your Doran scale, please read the instructions in this
section. Your new scale is a durable industrial product, but it is also a
sensitive weighing instrument. Normal care should be taken when
handling and using this product. Improper handling or abuse can
damage the scale and result in costly repairs that may not be covered by
the warranty. If you notice any shipping damage, notify the shipper
immediately. Please observe the following precautions to insure years
of trouble free service from your new scale.
! DO NOT drop the scale.
! DO NOT drop objects on the scale.
Carefully remove the scale from the shipping carton. Be sure to retain
all shipping materials in case the scale must be shipped elsewhere.
Installation
Place the scale on a stable flat surface. Verify that the bubble level
located under the platter shows that the scale is level. Adjust the four
feet to obtain a level condition (bubble in center.)
Electrical Connections
The DS100 uses a wall mounted transformer to provide power to the
scale. The transformer requires 115 VAC, 50/60 Hz power. Be sure the
AC power is not excessively noisy – this can occur if large inductive
loads, such as solenoids or motors, are on the same power line.
Subjecting electronics to problematic AC power lines may result in
damage not covered by the warranty. Also be sure that the power outlet
and transformer are not exposed to water while the scale is plugged in.
Care & Cleaning
With reasonable care, this product will last for many years. Here are
some tips to care for your DS100 Scale Indicator.
• Hand clean with a damp cloth using mild detergent.
• Do not use strong solvents or abrasive cleaners as this can damage
the touch panel or other plastic parts.
• Do not drop or overload the scale.
• Do not use sharp objects to press any of the buttons.
• Do not immerse.

Section 3. Setup and Calibration Guide
Fig. 2 DS100 Rear Panel
Power connections
The DS100 is powered from a wall mounted transformer. The transformer has a
power cord which plugs into the power jack located on the back of the scale. A
strain relief is provided to the left of the power jack. The power cord can be
looped around the strain relief to prevent accidental unplugging.
RS-232 Connections
The DS100 has a standard RS-232 output. To use this feature, the optional RS232 cable (P/N DSOPT001 or DSOPT002) is required. To access the RS-232
terminals at the rear of the scale, remove the rear panel from the indicator as
shown in Figure 2.
Insert the cable conductors by placing a small flat blade screw driver into the
terminal slot and then push the handle of the screw driver upwards towards the
top of the indicator. This forces the terminal below to open. Insert the conductor
into the terminal and remove the screwdriver.
Load Cell Connections
The DS100 accepts 4 wire and 6 wire load cells. For 4-wire operation, jumpers
JP1 and JP2, located to the right of the load cell connections, must be inserted.
For 6-wire operation, remove JP1 and JP2. To protect against ESD, use the
ground wire provided with your Doran base load cell cable and connect to the
Shield (SHD) terminal. If a ground wire is not available, ground the base to the
meter with the SHD connection. Verify proper grounding by measuring the
resistance from the SHD terminal on the DS100 to the base chassis.
Insert the cable conductors by placing a small flat blade screw driver into the
terminal slot and then push the handle of the screw driver upwards towards the
4
top of the indicator. This forces the terminal below to open. Insert the conductor
into the terminal and remove the screwdriver.

Section 5. Data Communications
Introduction to data communications
Basic understanding of serial data communications is needed when setting up the
DS100 to communicate with a printer or PC.
When setting up a serial communications system, there are two concerns which
affect the configuration of that system. These are:
•
•
Baud Rate
Data Bits and Parity
The baud rate determines how fast the data is sent from the scale. The sending
and receiving units must be set to the same baud settings. Typical values are
1200, 2400, 4800 and 9600.
The DS100 is factory set for eight bits, no parity and one stop bit also known as
8n1. The receiving units must be set to 8n1 for proper communications.

The dual print mode provides the DS100 with the ability to print the current
scale reading followed by the equivalent value in kilograms.
The weight is first printed using the “F0” format. Then the weight is
recalculated in kilograms and is sent as a second line of text. The kilogram
data follows the “F0” data format except where parentheses are placed after
the STX character and before the carriage return & line feed.

UPS Application Note: UPS On-Line WorldShip Software Rev 3.1 and Higher
Description:
The following instructions will allow a Scale to be connected to the UPS On-Line
shipping system. The UPS On-Line software operates by continuously polling the
scale for weight several times a second. The UPS program then displays the
current weight in a window marked “Scale Weight:”. This package weight, in
pounds is then used to generate a shipping label if the “Electronic Scale Activated”
check box is selected.
Hardware Setup:
Before starting the UPS On-Line software, connect the Scale's serial port to the
computer’s serial port (com1 or com2) by way of the optional serial cable (P/N
DSOPT001 or DSOPT002). Apply power to the scale and press the ZERO push
button.
WARNING: The scale must be on and connected at all times while the UPS OnLine program is running. If the scale is disconnected, turned off, or placed in the
calibration mode, an error message will be displayed on the computer screen. To
correct this error, you must perform a scale setup again or restart the UPS
software – see Software Setup for instructions.
Software Setup:
If the UPS On-Line program has been already installed, follow the configuration
steps below only. If the UPS On-Line program is not installed, power up the scale
and connect the scale's serial cable to an available PC serial port. Next, install the
UPS On-Line program as per instruction on the UPS installation CD. The
installation program will prompt you to select if a scale is connected, select yes.
To configure the UPS On-Line WorldShip program:
1. Click on the “Tools” menu located at top of screen, then select “System
Preferences”.
2. Click on the “Hardware” tab and set the “Scale Type:” drop down menu to
“Fairbanks 70-2453-4”.
3. Click on the “Scale Port:” drop down menu, choose which serial port the
scale is connected to, com1, com2 or other com port. This is the port that
the DB9 cable is connected to at the rear of your PC from the scale.
4. Finally, click on the “Test Scale” button. Place weight on the scale. The
computer should then display the current weight on the scale.
5. Click the “OK” button, and return back to the service menu.
6. Check the “Electronic Scale Activation” box to accept weight readings from
the scale. The current weight will be displayed under the “Package:” section,
in the “Scale Weight” window. NOTE: UPS software does not show zero or
negative weights on the main display page.

Section 7. Troubleshooting
General Problem Resolution
Problem
Weight reading will not repeat or
scale does not return to zero when
weight is removed.
What to Do or Check
Make sure that the scale platter is not
rubbing or touching the scale cover. Verify
that there is nothing caught in the platform,
under or around the load cell.
Scale overloads early
Verify scale calibration is correct. If
problem persists, recalibrate the scale.
Scale will not come to zero when the
ZERO button is pressed.
Make sure that the scale is becoming
stable (Motion annunciator is off). After
pressing the ZERO button, the scale
should zero as soon as it becomes stable.
If problem persists, there may be a
problem with the touch panel or
motherboard.
Weight readings don’t seem to be
correct.
Verify the scale calibration with an
accurate test weight. If the readings are
not correct, recalibrate.
Scale drifts off zero.
Check for air currents and/or vibration
around the scale. If that is the cause, it
may be necessary to set the AZ T and nnA
parameters to wider settings to
compensate (see the parameter section.)
Verify that no mechanical restrictions exist,
i.e. platter rubbing, something caught
under or around the load cell.
Scale shuts itself off or will not turn
on.
Press the ZERO button to turn on the
indicator.
The transformer may be bad or the power
connector at the rear of the scale may
have an intermittent connection. Check
the power connector at the rear of the
scale.
