For the following discussion, please refer to the schematics in appendix B.
Power supply:
The power supply section provides a source of ±5 volts, a nickel-cadmium battery
charger, and the detector for low battery condition. The input is designed to accept any
voltage between 10.5 and 14.6 volts.

Rev B, October, 2000
Charger:
The battery charger works on the constant voltage charging principle. The diode
D4 is a 10 volt zener diode. This diode is biased by the constant current source
formed by R1, R2, Q8, D2, and D3. Current is sourced to D4 until the voltage
across R2 is equal to the voltage dropped across D2. D3 cancels the voltage
drop across the Vbe of Q8. R1 is used to draw a bias current through D2 and
D3. Q7 is configured as a common base amplifier, with 9.3 volts appearing on
emitter Q7 (10 volts from D4 minus 0.7 volts Vbe of Q7). R3 limits the charging
current to safe value. D5 is used to establish 8.6 volts across the string of cells.
The charge indicator circuit senses the current through R3. When 0.7 volts is
developed (about 28 milliAmps) across R3, Q10 turns on, lighting D20.

Switch:
Q6 acts as the main power switch. R4 provides bias to hold Q6 off when in the
off state. Current is drawn through R5 to turn Q6 on. This current may be
provided by the ON switch contact, or through the transistor Q5. Q5 derives its
bias from the low voltage sensor of R6 and zener diode D6. While 6.8 volts is
present on the collector of Q6, D6 will conduct through the current limiting
resistor R6, and bias Q5 on. The OFF switch starves the base current of Q5.
This cuts off the base drive for Q6, turning the unit off. An output from the U12
(74HC191) may also hold D6 below turn on voltage, again, depriving Q5 of base
drive and indirectly turning off Q6 (auto off feature).

PT300, Service Manual
Rev B, October, 2000
Low Voltage Sensor:
R9, D7, and Q2 work much the same as R6, D6 and Q5 in the power switch
section. The addition of D8 causes Q2 to switch 0.3 volts before Q5. In
practical terms, Q2 will be biased on until the switched voltage drops to 7.2 volts.
Below this voltage the low voltage sense line goes high. R10 provides a path for
any leakage current through D7 and D8.
Regulator:
Q3 a standard 3 terminal regulator in a TO-92 package. U19 is a voltage
inverter chip that uses a charge pump to convert 5.0 volts to -5.0 volts. C1, C2,
and C3 are used to stabilize Q3, C5 and C6 are necessary to the operation of
U19.
11
PT300, Service Manual
Rev B, October, 2000
Analog Section:
The analog section takes the signal from the load cells (about 10 mV) and translates
this signal into a digital representation. In our case this representation is a sixteen bit
number in a counter register.
Instrumentation Amplifier:
The signal from the load cells is about 10 mV at full load. U18 takes this signal
and amplifies it for use by the A/D converter. R21, R22, C14, and C15 filter out
RFI interference and provide some limited protection from electrostatic
discharge. The total resistance between pins 2, 3, 6, 7, and 4 and 5 select the
gain of the amplifier. Some of the amplifier's built-in resistors are used to
increase the gain stability, hence the busy connections between U18 and the
gain selection resistors. R24 and potentiometer R24 are the gain selection
resistors. In the revision 'C' and later boards R52, R53, and jumpers JP1-JP3
allow jumper gain selection. R25, R26, C10, and C11 provide low pass
frequency filtering.
Analog/Digital Converter:
U17 is a collection of integrator, comparator and analog switches. With U12,
U13, and U14 this forms a dual slope integrating analog to digital converter.
The heart of the A/D converter is R17, C7, and an integrator and comparator
internal to U17. Please examine figure 4 below for the configuration of these
parts.

Figure 5 Conversion Cycle
Let’s examine the operation of the converter. Start with C7 at zero volts. The
+input voltage charges C7 for a fixed period called Time-integrate. Then the
integrator input is switched to the reference voltage and C7 is discharged for an
amount of time called Time-deintegrate; this time is related to the input voltage.
At sometime the voltage on C7 crosses zero, and the output of the comparator
changes state to reflect this. Another way of looking at the discharge cycle is
that the reference voltage does not change so the rate of discharge should be a
certain number of volts per second. The higher the input voltage, the higher the
voltage that will be driven onto the integrating capacitor. The higher the voltage
on the integrating capacitor, the longer the time of discharge. When the
integrator is not charging or discharging it is held in an "auto-zero" condition. At
this time any internal error voltages cancels inside U17. Note that the reference
voltage is simply the power supply divided by a resistor network. This is the
same supply used to power the load cells, so any change in the power supply
excitation to the load cells is canceled in the analog to digital converter. This
feature, adjusting the reference by the same amount as the excitation voltage, is
called ratiometric conversion.
13
PT300, Service Manual
Rev B, October, 2000
Now for the messy details of implementation; U17 is driven through the
integrate, deintegrate, and auto-zero cycles by a counter U12. This counter is
loaded by the micro processor to start the cycle, and U12 pin 6 output is used as
an interrupt to signal that the conversion is over. The counter's clock is driven
by ones output from the Counter-Timer-Chip, U13. The deintegrate phase is
signaled by ones on the control lines A and B into U17; this is combined with the
comparator output from U17 using Boolean AND function; gates clock pulses
into another section of U13. When the Micro is signaled that a conversion is
finished it reads a 16 bit number in U13 that is proportional to the weight on the
load cells. The micro clears the counters U12 and U13 pin 14, starting another
conversion cycle. Note that the MIN/MAX bit out of counter U12 is used as the
auto-off signal. To turn the scale off the computer does not service the end of
conversion interrupt. This also acts as a dandy watchdog timer, if the micro is
incapacitated it does not service the interrupt and the scale shuts off.
Microprocessor section:
This is the logic and timing portion of the system. The computer portion, user
interface and input/output sections fall in this category.
CPU:
U2 is a standard CMOS Z80 processor chip. Y1, U3A, U3B, and
associated parts form a 1.2 mHz clock. R37 and C20 form the power on
reset pulse.
Memory:
U5 is a 2K x 8 bit static RAM memory. A 27C64 EPROM (U1) holds
program and setup information. There is no NOVRAM or related
parameter storage. All setup parameters are set at fabrication and are
held in the EPROM device.
Device Selector:
U9 and several low level gates select all devices as memory. No refresh
or I/O cycles are needed or used.
Switches & Reader:
U4 reads all the switches except ON and OFF. Pin 17 of U4 reads the
serial input line, pin 4 reads the low battery line.
14
PT300, Service Manual
Rev B, October, 2000
Display Driver:
Any LCD display must be driven by a waveform with a net zero DC
voltage. If the driving voltage has any DC component the display will be
destroyed. A display driver chip (U10) provides the correct drive for 4 of
the display digits. The leading 100000's digit, the trailing 0/5 digit and all
annunciators are driven by U6, U7, and U8. U6 latches most of the
desired segment drive information. One line of U6 drives the serial output
circuitry. The low battery line is driven directly by the voltage sensor.
The EXCLUSIVE OR gates (U7 & U8) drive LCD segments with a signal
in phase with the backplane for off segments, and out of phase for on
segments.

Figure 6 LCD Drive
Serial IN/OUT:
U15 Reads a 20 mA current loop and converts this to an opto-isolated
TTL signal across R31. R29 and R30 act as a voltage divider to limit the
current through the current loop receiver diode. D17 provides a path for
reverse voltage spikes. U13 is programmed to output a regular 4800 Hz
pulse on pin 17, this is used as the source of non-maskable interrupt.
This timebase pulse is used to form a UART in software. U16 converts
TTL signals into either RS-232 or a 20 mA current loop signal. R34 acts
to limit the current in U16. D18 cancels the Vbe drop of Q4, allowing
current through R38 until its voltage drop matches D19 (0.7 Volt). This
results in 20 mA across the collector-emitter of Q4. When used as a RS232 transmitter, OIL- is grounded and the output is taken from OIL+. For
current loop, output is taken from OIL- and ground is taken on the other
side of the receiver logic.

Troubleshooting
Caution
Changing some parts may cause a large change in calibration whereas others may or
may not change the calibration, depending on the nature of the problem. The most
sensitive parts are in the analog and power supply sections; this includes Q3, U17,
U18, U19, and their related resistors and capacitors. The areas that normally would
have no effect are: CPU, display and driver, memory chips, and serial interface
sections. Normally, the calibration should be checked after any repairs.
Symptoms
No power up, nothing on display.
If any power reaches the scale the display driver turns on some random
segments. Since we are not seeing this we will assume that no power is
reaching the scale circuitry. Some possible causes: blown fuse, shorted battery
pack, bad switch circuit, bad keypad, bad regulator. The power supply may be
delivering power, but it might be eaten up with a shorted circuit board or filter
capacitors.
Power up to random display.
We know that some power is reaching the display driver circuit, but the
microprocessor is not able run the display. Some possibilities: bad
microprocessor (U2), bad memory (U1, U5), bad chip select logic to memory or
display driver. Finally, the microprocessor may be working but the display driver
(U10) circuitry may not be working.
Power up to test pattern.
The microprocessor is running well enough to write to the display, but gets hung
up at some point after that. The usual symptom is the display stays on EEE0.
During the time between the display test and normal operation the scale is trying
to read a stable A/D value between certain limits. The A/D converter (U12, U13,
U17) may not be running at all. The converter may be returning values that are
outside of allowed ranges. Two reasons for this could be bad load cell outputs
or a bad amplifier chip (U18). The microprocessor may be defective, not reading
end of conversion interrupts, getting hung up in a loop, shorted address lines,
etc.
16
PT300, Service Manual
Rev B, October, 2000
Scale shuts off.
Normally the scale shuts itself off after a long period of inactivity. The length of
time is defined at the time the scale is configured, but is normally one hour. If
the microprocessor is acting up, one of the symptoms may be that the scale
shuts off after the A/D is initialized and starts to run. All this tells up is that the
microprocessor is not resetting the counter U12, so its reaching MIN/MAX count.
We do know that the microprocessor is getting far enough through the startup
routine to set up U13, as U13 does not emit any pulses until it's told to. If the
scale turns off IMMEDIATELY after you take your finger off the off button, you
may have defective power switch circuitry.
"Locks up."
Bad microprocessor (U2) or support circuitry.
No backlight.
Look for a bad keypad, connector. If only one string of lamps refuses to shine,
short out the unlit LEDs until you bridge the bad one.
No response to one or more keys.
The keypad or connector may be bad. U4 may be defective.
"Bad" weights.
First, check weighing technique. Are the scales being used by a new operator?
Are the scales being used on level ground? Are the operators using dummy
blocks on the unweighed wheels? If on a calibration press, are you using weight
distribution blocks and rubber pads? Is the reference scale correct? Assuming
all this, is the scale spanned correctly? Are the load cells bottoming out? If the
weight is exactly half of what you would expect, one of the two signal leads may
not be providing signal. This would probably be in the load cell or amplifier
(U18). Non-linearity would be in the load cell or the analog section. The
interconnecting wiring inside the scale may be pinched under the printed circuit
board.
Jumpy/drifty weights.
This can usually be traced to contamination on circuit boards, a bad load cell, or
a defective U18.
Slow operation.
If the clock is running at some sub-multiple of the clock frequency, the scale runs
very slowly, but correctly. It is also possible that the A/D converter circuitry is
not working well. The scale uses the A/D cycles to pace all its internal
operations. This problem is usually caused by a bad crystal.
17
PT300, Service Manual
Rev B, October, 2000
Low batt indicator won't turn off.
It is possible that the output from the batteries is really low. Look at the cells
and charger circuit for these problems. The low voltage sensor could be out.
The driver for the display could be bad.
Batteries won't charge.
The most common problem is the Fuse, start there. Check for bad batteries.
The charger circuit could be out. Check for bad connections or a defective
charging cable. Look at the power source, whether it's a plug-in transformer or
automotive ignition.
No totalizing.
This may be traced to a defect in a particular scale, or a defect in the
interconnecting cables. In an otherwise properly running scale you need to look
at the serial transmitter and receiver sections. Look for the clock running at the
wrong speed. Try pressing the print button, this should send the local weight
down to the next scale once each time the print button is pressed. Is each scale
in the totalizing mode? Look for the bar on the display. No scale will totalize if
its not stable or if is in an under or over capacity condition. Is the signal getting
from one scale to the next? Look for bad cables or connectors, outside or inside
the scales. The interconnecting wiring inside the scale may be pinched under
the printed circuit board.

Blank EPROM test.
One of the most challenging problems is finding a problem in the
"microprocessor kernel," that is, the RAM, ROM, microprocessor and related
circuitry. The hardest part is that everything is tied together, and if you cut it
apart, nothing works. The best way to tackle this problem is to run a VERY
simple test program. This allows you to determine that the microprocessor is
working first. Often, when the machine is "almost" working correctly, the
symptoms help you to find any remaining problems.
On a Z80 style microprocessor, the simplest test program is a BLANK EPROM.
If used properly, this program will find any shorted address lines, any shorted or
open data lines, any bad read, write, or chip select lines. It only uses the
microprocessor, ROM, and chip selector IC.
A blank EPROM returns 0FFH as the data. A quick look at the Z80 instruction
set shows this to be a short call to location 38H in memory. The microprocessor
pushes the current address location on wherever the stack pointer is pointing.
As the test runs the stack pointer decrements through every location in memory.
At location 38H the microprocessor reads another 0FFH. This repeats
indefinitely. Let’s examine this program on a cycle by cycle basis.

Figure 7 Blank EEPROM Test Waveforms
For the first three clock pulses the Z80 reads 0FFH from location 038H. As part
of an instruction fetch the Z80 does a memory refresh cycle. We do not use this
for anything, but its there. Then the Z80 writes out the address 0039 on the
stack. Note that this takes two write cycles. Each time the Z80 writes this out
the stack address changes so the address lines will count through all address.
The address lines can be examined one at a time. With practice you can verify
that these signals are correct in about two minutes. What you are looking for is
a characteristic pattern, with no "funny" voltage levels. A shorted line will be
unable to reach the low voltage levels. You may have to fiddle with the trigger
controls to get a stable display.

SIO (totalizing):
To test the totalizing function you will need 2 scales (one is the scale under test)
and a totalizing cable.
Put the scale under test into the master position, and the other scale in the
second position on the cable.

Turn both scales on. Wait until both scale go to a stable zero display. Insure that both
scales are in the totalizing mode, look for the bar next to TOT on the display. Press the
local/total key to turn on the bar if needed. Apply a load to the master scale. The same
weight should appear on the slave scale. If this test fails try pressing the print key.
The receiver must sense an open line condition to force a scale to become the master
scale. Pressing print will force an output anyway. This is useful in isolating between
an input and an output failure.

Load Cells:
Each PT300 scale has two load cells. These load cells are the transducers that
convert mechanical energy (weight) to electrical energy. Each load cell has 4
strain gages (1000 ohms each) and a temperature compensation resistor. The
four strain gages are wired together to form a Wheatstone bridge.

The 200 ohm resistor in series with the Excitation lead is for temperature
compensation. It is a balco resistor that change resistance with temperature to
maintain a constant signal voltage. These resistors are specially manufactured for our
load cell material and strain gage types.
With the load cells disconnected from the summing board the resistances should be as
follows:
Blk - Red = 1200 Ohms
Blk - Grn = 751 Ohms
Blk - Wht = 751 Ohms
Wht - Grn = 1000 Ohms
With the two excitation leads soldered in place and the power on you should measure
approximately -1.00 to 1.00 millivolts between the plus and minus signal leads. The
signal at the main circuit board with everything soldered in place and the tare set
should be approximately 0.16 millivolts.

Procedures
Please see Parts section for the parts drawing.
Loading pads & blocks.
At several points in the following procedures you will be asked to use loading blocks.
The tip of a test press may exert 20000 pounds of force. While PT300 scales are
designed to accept this force, they may not tolerate this on a single point. You must
use a block to distribute the force over the load surface. In general, the force should be
applied over much the same pattern as a truck tire. We suggest a 8" x 8" x 2 ± .25”
block of aluminum on top of an 8" x 8" x 0.5" piece of rubber.
Calibrate span
Tools required
Twenty thousand pound calibration press.
8" x 8" x 2 ± .25” aluminum loading block.
8" x 8" x 0.5" rubber loading pad.

Use of a load cell simulator
During circuit board checkout it may be awkward to apply 20000 pounds to develop
internal signals. A load cell simulator may be attached to the signal and excitation
terminals to simulate these same signals. A setting of 2 mV/V gives about the same
signal as a 20000 Lbs load.

Setting the deadload.
The output signal from the load cells is set to a value slightly above zero with zero
weight applied. This is done for two reasons; one is to detect any errors in the load
cells, the other is to run the A/D converter in its most accurate operating point. The
"Deadload" or "Tare" must be set with no weight on the scale. This is not a regular
maintenance item, it should only need to be adjusted when changing a circuit board or
load cell. Please refer to the diagram below while reading the following section.

1)
It is assumed that the scale is disassembled with the main circuit board
removed from the case (but still plugged in) and sitting on an insulating
surface. The keypad must be plugged into the main circuit board.
2)
On the keypad, press the Local/Total and the lb/kg and while holding
them down turn the scale on and release all switches. The scale should
turn on with a number other than zero, we call this number the "raw
counts", ideally this number should be between 1500 and 4500. The
raw counts should change as weight is applied to the platform, (even a
small weight of 5 or 10 pounds should register a change) it will either
increase or decrease depending on the signal coming from the load
cells.
3)
If the raw counts are lower than 1500 or go down as weight is applied it
means that the negative signal is too high and needs to be lowered
(lowering the negative signal will increase the displayed raw counts).
Place a shunt in position 2 of JP1 and using trial and error place another
shunt in position 5, 6 or 7 whichever puts the displayed value between
1500 and 4500.
4)
If the raw counts are higher than 4500 and go up as weight is applied it
means that the positive signal is too high and needs to be lowered
(lowering the positive signal will decrease the displayed raw counts).
Place a shunt in position 1 of JP1 and using trial and error place another
shunt in position 5, 6 or 7 whichever puts the raw counts between 1500
and 4500.
5)

scale span. Likewise the span resistor may have to be changed when new circuit
boards or load cells are installed.
There are two revision boards; 300B and 300C. With the 300B board the span resistor
(R24) must be unsoldered to change values. The 300C board has a shorting plug
selecting a span resistor (R24, R52 or R53).
If you need more span (run out of travel going clockwise), select the next lower resistor
in this series: 274Ω , 301Ω , 330Ω , 365Ω , 392Ω . If you need less span (run out of
travel going counter-clockwise), select the next higher resistor in the series. These
resistors must be 1% tolerance parts.
With the revision B board, you must unsolder the old resistor and solder in the new
part.
With the revision C board the two most common values, 330Ω and 365Ω are selectable
with a shorting plug. JP1-1 goes to R24/330Ω and JP1-2 goes to R53/365Ω . Any
values outside this range will need to be soldered in place. Put the new resistor in
place of R52, and move the jumper to JP1-3.
With either board, clean off any soldering flux after changing a span resistor. Failure to
do this may result in inaccurate weight measurement.
Now try the span adjustment, and insure that you have enough adjustment range.
