Neither screw can be removed Bend tab without damaging the seal. over screw Sealing Wire Lead Seal CARE AND MAINTENANCE 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. DO NOT subject the commodity tray to sudden shocks. DO NOT submerge the scale in water or spray water directly on the scale. The scale may be cleaned using a damp soft cloth and mild detergent. DO NOT use an abrasive cleaner on this instrument. DO NOT use acetone or other volatile solvents for cleaning. DO NOT use any sharp or pointed instrument to depress keys. 14 ERROR MESSAGES CALib Indicates that the scale has never been setup and calibrated or has been interrupted during the setup and calibration sequence. ErrAL Indicates a faulty component or broken wire in the analog circuitry of the instrument. FAiL2 Will appear whenever the program cannot write data into the system memory (setup and calibration is in progress). -ouF- Will appear in the weight display whenever a net weight exceeds -9999 (4 digits negative). OCAP Indicates the scale weight capacity (999,999) has been exceeded. UnStb Indicates motion on the commodity tray during sampling. This message may occur when: 3. The TARE key is pressed (to enter 1. The PRINT key is pressed. current weight as push button tare). 2. The ZERO key is pressed. Error Indicates an incorrect key depression. It is accompanied by a long tone (beep). LoAd Indicates there is insufficient deadload for the scale to zero. UnLod Indicates there is too much deadload for the scale to zero. -ouF- The error message -ouF- (overflow) will appear in either the unit price or total price displays whenever the amount to display exceeds 99999 for unit price or 999999 for total price. -ouF- will also appear in the weight window when an attempt is made to tare a weight greater than 9999. -int- The error message -int- (interval) will appear in the unit price display whenever the keyboard tare weight division value isn’t the same as the scale ivision value. For example, a PC-20 (15 lb x .005 lb) will display -int- if you attempt to enter 1.003 for the tare weight. -trL- The error message -trL- (zero tracking limit) will appear in the unit display whenever the ZERO key is pressed with the weight outside the scale zero weight range. NOTE: Only 4% of scale capacity can be zeroed. SErouF The error message SErovF (serial overflow) will appear in the total price display whenever the scale’s serial buffer is overrun during communication. noPrt The error message noPrt (no printer) will appear when attempting to print without a “handshake cable” if the value for Prt= is a 2 or 3. SAuing The message SAving (saving) is displayed while downloading a Visual Print ticket. 15 BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE. . . Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance. Should you experience difficulty with the operation of this instrument, please check the following items before requesting service: 1. Is the power supply fully inserted into the wall receptacle? 2. Is the power supply connector fully inserted into the scale power supply receptacle? 3. Is the wall receptacle receiving power? Does another piece of equipment work when plugged into this receptacle? Has the circuit breaker been checked? 4. Has proper operation procedure been followed? 5. Have the shipping screws been removed? If you have any problems, DO NOT TRY TO REPAIR THIS UNIT YOURSELF! Unplug the power cord and contact your dealer. THERMAL PRINTER TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE Symptom Solution or Reason READY indicator does not light GREEN. 1. Check the power connections, both at the rear of the printer and at the wall outlet. READY indicator lights GREEN, but printer will not print. 1. Check the interface cable connections from the scale to the printer. Printer appears to be working, but nothing is printed. 1. Verify labels are the correct type (direct thermal). 2. Check that roll is properly loaded (see printer manual page 4). Printing is faded or poor quality 1. Ensure front door (cover) is fully closed. Prints only partial label. 1. Label caught on printhead. Clean print head. Use ONLY soft plastic to scrape the label from the printhead. DO NOT USE METAL OBJECTS; printhead may be permanently damaged. 2. When loading the first (initial) roll of labels, OR when loading a different size label, approximately one to three labels will be used to establish the TOF (top of form) setting. NOTE: The TOF is determined by the gap between the labels. To check the TOF setting, press FEED. Only one label should advance. Printer skips labels. 1. The Label Sensor is missing the gap between the labels due to one of the following reasons: A. Operator is holding label backing in an upwards direction as it exits the printer. B. The labels are exiting close to an obstruction, forcing the labels to exit in an upwards direction. C. The backing is allowed to pile up in front of the printer, forcing the labels to exit in an upwards direction. Printing stops, READY indicator flashes. 1. Printer is out of labels. Printing stops, READY indicator flashes for 3 seconds then returns to GREEN. 1. Possible label jam. 2. Communication error. Check interface cable and PRT= settting in Setup and Calibration. 16 SERIAL DATA OUT AND WEIGH ON DEMAND FUNCTION The PC series scale will transmit SMA Level 1 compliant serial weight data when the PRINT key is depressed or when connected to a host (Weight On Demand). When connected to a host, serial weight data will be transmitted to the host in a SMA Level compliant format when the host sends the scale a <If> W <cr> (linefeed, capital W, and a carriage return) or in an alternate format when the host sends the scale a W (capital W only). The Weight On Demand feature equires a special serial cable (Cardinal P/N 8529-B305-0A) connected between the scale and host. SMA Level 1 Compliant Format When the PRINT key is depressed or the Weight On Demand command (<If> W <cr>) is sent by the host, the weight data will be transmitted in the following format: <If>srnmfxxxxxx.xxxuuu<cr> where: <If> s - r n m - f xxxxxx.xxx uuu <cr> - line feed (oA hex) Status 'Z' = Center of Zero 'O' = Zero Error ' ' = space (none of the above) Range '1' Gross/Net status Motion Status 'm' = scale in motion ' ' = scale not in motion Reserved for future use Weight (fixed at 10 characters) Unit of measure Carriage return (0D hex) Alternate Weight On Demand Format When the alternate Weight On Demand command “W” (57H) is sent, the weight data will be transmitted in the following format: Response: Weight 1 byte 5 byte 1 byte Response: STX WEIGHT CR 02H Kg = XX.XXX 0DH ERROR 1 byte STX 02H 1 byte ? 3FH 1 byte STATUS 1 byte CR 0DH STATUS: Bit 4 = 1 Bit 2 = 1 Bit 1 = 1 Bit 0 = 1 center of zero under zero out of range motion 17 PC SERIES INTERFACE CABLES The PC series scale can be interfaced to different Detecto printers as well as to a host computer. The following table lists the model numbers of the printers supported and the cable required to connect to them or to a host computer.
