1.1
Unpacking and Inspection
Immediately after unpacking, visually inspect the DC-190 Ultra Count to ensure all components are included and
undamaged. If any items were damaged in shipment, notify Rice Lake Weighing Systems and the shipper
immediately.
Ensure all accessories are removed from the cartons, then replace all packing materials in the cartons and store in
a safe place. Use the original cartons whenever shipment of the scale is required.
1.2
Repacking
If the DC-190 counting scale must be returned for modification, calibration, or repair, it must be properly packed
with sufficient cushioning materials and the load cell must be locked to prevent damage to the load cell (see
Section 2.1 on page 6).
Whenever possible, use the original carton when shipping the DC-190. Damage caused by improper packaging is
not be covered by warranty.
1.3
DC-190 Scale Capacities and Resolutions
Counting scales specify two types of resolution:
• Weight (or external) resolution
• Counting (or internal) resolution
Weight resolution is displayed in increments of the full scale capacity which is divided into weight increments.
For example, a 5-lb scale divided into 10,000 display divisions would display weight with 0.0005 lb divisions
(10,000 divisions x 0.0005 lb = 5.0 lb).
Counting resolution is based on the internal resolution of the scale. The weight and counting resolutions for the
DC-190 single- and dual-platform capacities are listed below.
Tables 1-1 through 1-3 list the scale capacities and resolutions for all models of the DC-190 counting scales.

Scale Setup
This section provides information about attaching scales and serial devices to the DC-190. Information presented
describes both physical connections and values that must be specified when configuring the DC-190 (see
Section 4.0). If you know what scales and serial devices will be connected to the DC-190, you can use the SPEC
Code Worksheets Section 10.1 on page 50 to record these values for later configuration.
3.1
Scale Configurations
The DC-190 can be connected to up to three analog scale bases using the load cell ports (PORT 1 and PORT 2
shown in Figure 3-1). An Ohaus® Explorer force balance can also connected to either the FORCE BALANCE or
232/PRINTER serial port for a total of four scale channels.
PORT 1
PORT 2
Figure 3-1. DC-190 Scale Ports and Connectors
Attach SX-L single and SX-D dual scale platforms to PORT 1 (left connector); attach external scale base to
PORT 2 (right connector). For three-scale configurations using either an SX-L and two external bases or three
external bases, an optional Y-cable must be used to connect two of the bases to PORT 1. (A wiring diagram of the
Y-cable is shown in Section 10.5 on page 55.)
3.1.1
Configuring SPECs 16 and 17
SPECs 16 and 17 are used to assign the annunciators for each of the four scale channels (Scale No. annunciator
on the DC-190 console). All scale channels must be assigned, regardless of the actual number of scales attached.
Table 3-1 shows the values and default bit configurations for SPECs 16 and 17.

Table 3-1. Specifications 16 and 17 Default Settings
When configuring SPECs 16 and 17, use the following rules:
• If a force balance is attached, it must be configured as Scale 1. That is, SPEC 16, bits 3 and 2, (Scale 1)
must be set to Force Balance (11).
• Scales attached to Port 1 are configured as Internal Scale 1 and Internal Scale 2, regardless of whether the
actual scale base is internal (SX-L, SX-D) or external.
12
DC-190 Ultra Count Installation Manual
•
•
The scale attached to Port 2 is configured as External Scale.
All Scales (1–4) must be configured, and the value of each bit pair must be unique: each Scale (1–4)
must have a different value. For example, do not attempt to configure two or more scales as External
Scale; doing so will cause the DC-190 to lock up with an all 888888s display. See Section 10.7 on
page 57 for information about clearing this error condition.
SPECs 16 and 17 do not turn on the additional scales; by default, only one scale is enabled. Scales 2 and 3 are
turned on and off using SPEC 25, bit 1 (Scale Type, single or dual) and SPEC 32, bit 0 (Scale Connected to Port
2). The force balance is turned on and off in SPEC 8, bit 3 (Force Balance on RS-232C port); the port used by the
force balance is selected in SPEC 13, bits 2, 1, and 0 (RS-232 Connectors).
Caution
3.1.2
When adding a second or third platform to the DC-190, plug in the remote scale (or
dummy plug) before connecting AC power to the DC-190 and before enabling the added
scales in the configuration SPECs. Do not unplug a remote scale while the DC-190 is
powered on.
Scale Configurations, No Force Balance Attached
Table 3-2 lists several scale configurations for single, dual, and console-only models of the DC-190 with no force
balance attached. Required values for each configuration are shown for SPECs 16 and 17 (including Scale No.
assignments), SPEC 25 (bit 1), and SPEC 32 (bit 0). Because no force balance is attached, SPEC 8, bit 3, must be
set to 0 for all listed configurations.

NOTES:
• SPEC 8, bit 3, must be set to 0 (0xxx) if no force balance is connected to the DC-190. Setting this bit to 1 with no force
balance connected will cause the scale to lock up.
• Console-only configurations require external AC adapter.
• If an external scale is attached to PORT 2 and only one scale is attached to the PORT 1 connector, the external scale is
configured using Scale 3 parameters (SPECs 33, 36, and 37).

specify the number of minutes (binary) before the scale enters autopower off mode.Examples below show
the binary code, time delay, and description. Settings can range from 0–15 minutes in 1-minute
increments.

Description
Autopower off is disabled.
If net weight is zero and no motion for 7 minutes, scale goes into autopower off mode.
If net weight is zero and no motion for 15 minutes, scale goes into autopower off mode.
NOTE: Powering down means that accumulated value is lost and not retained upon power up. However,
all total inventory values stored with item codes are retained.

Scale Operations
The following sections contain detailed operator instructions for the DC-190 counting scale. Included are
instructions to enter tare weights, toggle between net and gross weight, enter unit weights, perform inventory
accumulation and reduction, and toggle between scales. All operator functions are conducted with the scale in the
weighing or normal mode. See Section 7.0 on page 30 for information about scale programming.
Counting scale accuracy is primarily determined by the following factors:
• Sample size (number of pieces)
• Total sample size as a percentage of full scale capacity
• Piece-to-piece weight variation
As a general rule when determining sample size of fairly uniform pieces, the larger the sample size the greater
the total sample weight, therefore, the better the counting accuracy. Selecting the smallest capacity scale that can
obtain the highest counting resolution should be considered, but should not sacrifice the capacity required for the
heaviest container of parts. For this specific application, a dual-platform scale may be the best selection.
There is a direct relationship between piece-to-piece weight variation (non-uniformity) and counting accuracy.
Therefore, elimination of the piece-to-piece weight variations can be accomplished by:
1. Isolating the sample used to calculate the unit weight and use the same sample to re-check the scale.
2. Recalculating the unit weight from lot-to-lot of parts. Parts manufactured on one machine may vary
slightly from another machine relative to weight.
3. Tightening the manufacturing tolerances on the parts reduces piece weight variations and increases count
accuracy.
6.1
Entering Tare Weights
Tare weights can be entered in the scale by one of two methods: one-touch tare or digital tare.
NOTES:
•
SPEC 27, bit 2 (Digital Tare Setting) must be a 1 to allow digital tare.
•
SPEC 27, bits 0 and 1 (Tare Range) must be set to the appropriate tare range value. Default is 00, 100 percent of full
scale.
One-Touch Tare, Tare Weight Unknown
1. If the tare weight value is not known, place the container, box, or item to be tared on the scale and press
TARE. The WEIGHT display should now show 0 and the NET annunciator should illuminate.
2. Remove the container, box, or item from the scale. The WEIGHT display should show a negative weight
value (weight of the tared container, box, or item).
3. Press TARE to reset tare to zero.

illuminated. The UNIT-WEIGHT and the QUANTITY displays go blank.
4. Press NET/GROSS. The WEIGHT display now shows 0.500 and the NET weight annunciator is
illuminated.
6.4
Entering Unit Weights
Entering unit weights can be done either by sampling, as described in Section 6.4.1, or by key entry as described
in Section 6.4.2.
SPEC 0, bit 0 (Piece Weight Selection) works in conjunction with the UNIT-WEIGHT display. Setting the bit to 0
specifies that the UNIT-WEIGHT value shown is per 1000 pieces and the UNIT WT PER 1000 annunciator is lit.
Setting bit 0 to 1 specifies that the unit weight value shown is per one piece (A.P.W.).
NOTE: SPEC 4, bits 1 and 2 (Insufficient Sample Level) control unit weight sampling. The default value is 0.1 percent.
6.4.1
Unit Weight Operation by Sampling
Unit weight operation by sampling is accomplished by placing a known quantity of pieces to be sampled on the
scale and then pressing the PIECES key. The scale calculates a unit weight based on the capacity of the scale
compared to the weight of the sample.
1. Press REZERO to zero scale.
2. Place 10 pieces of the item to be sampled on the scale.
3. Press PIECES key then wait a few seconds for the computation. If the sample weight is sufficient
(INSUFF annunciator is off), the WEIGHT display shows the total sample weight; the UNIT-WEIGHT
display shows the unit or per 1000 weight for the 10 sample pieces (depending on the value of SPEC 0,
bit 0, as described above); the QUANTITY display shows the number of pieces (10).
If the weight of the sample is insufficient (INSUFF annunciator is on), add pieces to the initial sample
until the INSUFF annunciator goes off.
• If SPEC 5, bit 2 (unit weight auto-recomputing), is set to 1, place required pieces on the scale. The
scale automatically recomputes the unit weight.
• If SPEC 5, bit 2, is set to 0, use the keyboard to enter the new number of sample pieces then press the
PIECES key again to recompute the unit weight.

type), must be set to 1 (x1xx, Ohaus Explorer).
• If no printer is attached to the DC-190, SPEC 10, bit 3, must be set to 0 (0xxx).
• SPEC 16 and SPEC 17 must assign a different location for each scale, whether it is present or not. These
bits must be configured to show scale assignments for Internal Scale 1, Internal Scale 2, External Scale,
and Force Balance. See example below.
Caution
The following configuration for SPECs 16 and 17 contains duplicate entries for both Internal Scale 1
and External Scale. Do NOT set SPECs 16 and 17 to a configuration such as that shown below: a
lockup condition will result if this configuration is selected.

Should the DC-190 become locked up in all 888888s as a result of invalid specification settings, an authorized
service technician can perform the following procedure:
1. Unplug scale from AC outlet.
2. Press and hold the 3 and 9 keys while plugging AC cord into outlet.
3. The display shows S-on. Release the 3 and 9 keys.
4. Press and hold REZERO key while keying access code 141 (display will show SPC00). Use the + key to
advance to the incorrect SPEC and edit its value.
5. When done, press the * key to store the new values, then press the MODE key to return to weighing
mode.
