INTRODUCTION
The 4300 gross weigh bagger was designed to fill bags with products like corn, beans, or materials
in pellet form. It is an “off the shelf” item that will require a minimum amount of time to install and
setup. It is designed to fill open mouth bags.
The purpose of the safety labels described in this manual are to warn of the hazards
that may be associated with equipment manufactured by the Chantland-MHS Company, and
the injuries that may result. The Chantland-MHS Company’s goal when designing equipment
is to make products hazard free. When this can’t be accomplished, a protection device or
guard is added where possible. If guarding cannot be achieved due to the operation of the
equipment, a safety label will be provided to identify the hazard. After initial in-house review
of current safety labels & procedures it was determined that an outside third party source
should be consulted to ensure compliance with the newly revised ANSI standards and OSHA
requirements. The following company was selected to provide the required services.
Hazard Communication Systems Inc
109 North Second Ave
PO Box 847
Alpena, Mi 49707
Attn: Geoffrey Peckham
The Chantland-MHS Company’s existing safety labels were sent to Hazard Communication
System Inc for review and redesign.
After several correspondence and discussions the new labels were agreed upon.

OPERATING PROCEDURES
Setup/Tare Bag
1. Apply air to the filter/ regulator/lubricator (FRL) unit located on rear of machine, if
needed.
2. Set filter/regulator to 80psi, if needed.
3. Apply power by plugging the power plug into a 120VAC/1PH/50-60HZ receptacle,
preferably dedicated to this control only.
4. Pull the “POWER ON” button out to the “ON” position.
5. Depress the “ZERO” keypad on the scale control, if the display does not read “0.00”.
6. Place an empty bag up to the spout on the opposite side of the clamps from the “Bag in
Place” switch.
7. Activate Start switch so the clamps will activate. Since the “Bag in Place” switch will
not be activated, no product will flow when the clamps close and hold the bag.
8. Remove hands away from the bag, then, read the display. The display will show the
empty bag weight.
9. Depress the “TARE” keypad next to the “ZERO” keypad. The display will read
“0.00”.
10. Depress the “Stop Fill” pushbutton to remove the empty bag from the spout.
SETTING PRESETS FOR FILLING
SETUP FOR TWO STAGE FILL:
1. Depress the “PRESETS” keypad. The display will read “FASt=”.
2. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will show the last value entered.
3. Depress the number keypads the equal the value that corresponds to the weight deemed
the point to go into “Slow Fill”. EXAMPLE: If you choose 40lb as the point to go into
Slow Fill (dribble), then enter 40.00 into this preset. The amount leaves 10lb for dribble
to a target weight of 50lb, in theory. However, by the time the flow gate gets to the Slow
Fill position, the amount of product left to get to Target Weight may be far less than
that, depending on the product. Another thing to consider when choosing this preset is
the amount of time left for Slow fill. The best accuracy usually occurs if slow fill has 1.5
to 2 seconds of time to run.
4. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will read “SLo=”.
5. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will show the last Target Weight value
entered.
6. Depress the number keypads that equal the value of the Target Weight value desired
and depress “ENTER”, or depress “ENTER” if there is no change. For example, if the
target weight is 50lbs, then enter 50.00.
7. After the Target Weight is entered, the display will read “Tri=”. “Tri=”
stands for trim, which is a number subtracted from the Target Weight
figure. For example: with a Target Weight of 50.00lb and a “Tri=” of 2.00,
the final cutoff gate would begin shutting at 48.00lb. Given some product,
hopefully 2.00lbs, in the air, the Target Weight will be met when all of the
product gets in the bag. When the Target Weight is met, the bag clamps will
let go of the bag, unless the Bag Hold Switch is on, or after the time expires
that may be entered in the bdly setting.
8. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will show the last Trim
Weight value entered. Now enter the “Tri=” weight chosen.
9. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The bdly= time setting will appear.
Depress the “ENTER” keypad and then enter time needed to allow the
product to sufficiently get into to the bag.
SETUP FOR BULK FILL ONLY:
1. Depress the “PRESETS” keypad. The display will read “FASt=”.
2. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will show the last value
entered.
3. Depress the number keypads the equal the value that corresponds to the
weight deemed the point to go into “Final Cutoff”. EXAMPLE: If you
choose 46lb as the point to go into “Final Cutoff”, then enter 46.00 into
this preset. The amount leaves 4lb of product in the air to a target weight
of 50lb.
4. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will read “SLo=”.
5. Depress the “ENTER” keypad. The display will show the last Target
Weight value entered.
6. Depress the number keypads that equal the value of the Target Weight
value desired and depress “ENTER”, or depress “ENTER” if there is no
change. For example, if the target weight is 50lbs, then enter 50.00.
NOTE: THE ABOVE SET POINT VALUES ARE ONLY EXAMPLES, AND MAY
NOT WORK FOR YOUR PRODUCT. ALSO, THERE ARE MECHANICAL
ADJUSTMENTS TO THE GATE/S THAT MAY IMPROVE PERFORMANCE.
ADDITIONAL THINGS TO CONSIDER:
1. Unless the operator is very familiar with the machine and product, the presets will need
refining and/or the flow gate will need adjusting. The settings above were examples, not
burned in stone.
2. Most often, a flow rate average of 10lb/sec works for best accuracy. Try to adjust the
flow gate (the slide gate above the final cutoff gate) to achieve this flow rate.
3. A minimum of 1.5 second of slow fill, after the gate is in position, is best for accuracy.
Try to adjust the Fast Fill Preset to allow this. Often, product flow characteristics will
dictate if more or less time is needed. In the case of Bulk Fill Only, the flow gate will
probably have to be adjusted inward to cut down on the flow rate to achieve the
10lbs/second. Note: The 10lbs/second flow rate is a guideline value and may not be
suitable for all production goals.
4. This machine is a gross weigh machine. Therefore, the bag should be placed in the same
spot on the spout for best results. Each time the bags are placed in a different spot, the
amount of product free fall changes, and therefore a different bag weight will result. No
amount of changing the presets will cure this, only the operator can cure this problem.
5. Never open the bags further than is needed to place the bag.
6. Center the bag on the spout and place every bag vertically in the same spot.
Filling Sequence
1. Hold an empty opened bag to the spout with the right hand, so when the clamps are closed, the
“Bag in Place” switch will be activated by one side of the bag and one clamp, while the opposite
clamp will holds the other side of the bag.
2. Turn the “Bag Hold” selector switch to the “ON” position with the left hand, while continuing to
hold the bag to the spout with the right hand.
A.
C.
B.
D.
3. Push up, or down, on the plastic whisker of the “Start” switch, with the left hand, until the bag
begins to fill.
4. Let go of the “Start” switch and the bag. Do not touch the machine, or the bag, until the bag has
been filled. This is indicated by the weight display no longer moving only in a positive direction,
the PWC1 (unless a 0.00 is entered into Fast Fill preset) & PWC2 light/s being on, and/or no
sound of product flowing into the bag.
5. Read the weight display, noting the difference between the Target Weight and the weight in the
bag, if there is any.
6. If PWC3 light is on, grip the bag with left hand, then return the “Bag Hold” selector switch to the
“off” position. The bag will fall away from the spout, when the switch is in the “off” position. If
the PWC3 light is off, the Stop Fill pushbutton will have to be depressed after the “Bag Hold”
switch is returned to the “off” position.
7. After the bag is removed, adjust the preset/s as needed.
8. Repeat steps 1 through 8 until the machine fills the bags correctly a few times. Then, begin
operating without using the Bag Hold selector switch.
9. Begin operating without using the Bag Hold selector switch.
10. Place empty bag to the spout with the right hand, so when the clamps are closed, the “Bag in
Place” switch will be activated.
11. Push up, or down, on the plastic whisker of the “Start” switch, with the left hand, until the bag
begins to fill.
12. Let go of the “Start” switch and the bag. Do not touch the machine, or the bag, until the bag has
been filled.
13. The full bag will be released at the end of the fill.
14. If there is a running conveyor under the spout, a new bag can be placed as the full bag clears the
spout.
15. We recommend check weighing every 10th bag, or so. Use a separate check weigh scale to insure
proper bag weights are being produced.
16. Push in the “Power On” push/pull button when the machine is not in use. However, it is not
necessary to remove the power plug from the receptacle. Leaving the unit plugged in will keep the
scale portion of the unit “warm”.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
CAUTION: PRIOR TO REPLACING ANYTHING ELECTRICAL, ALWAYS
DISCONNECT POWER TO INSURE THE SAFETY
OF THE PERSON AND THE EQUIPMENT.
CAUTION: PRIOR TO REPLACING ANYTHING PNEUMATIC, ALWAYS
DISCONNECT AIR PRESSURE TO INSURE THE
SAFETY OF THE PERSON AND OF THE EQUIPMENT.
ERRATIC WEIGHTS
1. DOES THE BAG SLIP DOWN AS IT IS BEING FILLED?
A. Replace the bag grips.
2. DO THE CLAMPS AND GATES OPERATE PROPERLY?
A. Listen to the exhaust ports on the solenoid valve manifold. If excessive or constant air is
leaking out as the cylinders are transferring or in either their positions, the machine will be
sluggish or inoperable.
B. Check the action of each cylinder individually.
C. Check to see if there is air flow where there shouldn’t be in the air lines. For example, if
the cylinder shaft is extended, pull off the air line on that end of the cylinder and see if air
is coming out of the cylinder. If air is coming out of the cylinder, the cylinder needs
replaced. If air is coming out of the air line, the valve needs replaced. Remember, to check
each cylinder in both positions.
D. Check each cylinder around the shaft, as well, for air coming out of a worn seal.
E. Check to see if the mufflers are clogged. Try to clean them with warm soapy water, if they
are clogged/dirty. Dirty or clogged mufflers will cause all cylinders and valves to operate
sluggishly, or even stop the operation.
F. Look for mechanical binds caused by loose bolts, product jammed in critical points, or
eventually, worn out or broken parts.
3. IS THE SCALE READING “UNSTABLE”? CONSTANTLY CHANGING READINGS UP
AND/OR DOWN GREATER THAN +/- 0.06 LBS?
A. Small ranged changes usually indicate scale interference due to mechanical rubbing,
external air flow (caused by fans, wind, room pressure changes), etc. Large range
changes are usually caused by electronic/electrical interference or failures.
CAUTION: PRIOR TO REPLACING ANYTHING ELECTRICAL, ALWAYS
DISCONNECT POWER TO INSURE THE SAFETY
OF THE PERSON AND THE EQUIPMENT.
CAUTION: PRIOR TO REPLACING ANYTHING PNEUMATIC, ALWAYS
DISCONNECT AIR PRESSURE TO INSURE THE
SAFETY OF THE PERSON AND OF THE EQUIPMENT.
B. Begin by checking the load cell signal voltage and excitation voltage. The signal voltage
will be around +4.0mVDC. The excitation will be around +12VDC. Read the signal
voltage between terminal 5 (-) and terminal 3 (+) of P1 of the main board.
FIG. 1
If the signal voltage is incorrect and the excitation voltage is correct, replace the load cell.
However, if the excitation voltage is incorrect, as well, replace the Main Board.
4. THE FLOW (INNER) GATE DOESN’T OPEN FOR BULK FILL, BUT THE CUTOFF GATE
OPENS AND THE CLAMPS CLOSE.
A. The solenoid valve for the Flow Gate needs replaced.
B. Check the pneumatic circuit for the Flow Gate.
5. THE FLOW GATE IS ALWAYS OPEN.
A. Check the pneumatic circuit.
B. Check the PWC1 preset.
C. Replace the RB4 card K1 relay.
CAUTION: PRIOR TO REPLACING ANYTHING ELECTRICAL, ALWAYS
DISCONNECT POWER TO INSURE THE SAFETY
OF THE PERSON AND THE EQUIPMENT.
CAUTION: PRIOR TO REPLACING ANYTHING PNEUMATIC, ALWAYS
DISCONNECT AIR PRESSURE TO INSURE THE
SAFETY OF THE PERSON AND OF THE EQUIPMENT.
6. THE CUTOFF GATE DOESN’T OPEN, BUT THE CLAMPS CLOSE AND THE FLOW GATE
OPENS.
A. Check the “Bag In Place” switch. The Cutoff Gate cannot open without being activated by
the bag activating the “Bag In Place” switch.
B. Check the status of R4. If R4 does not operate, replace it.
C. Check the status of R2. If R2 is on, check the status of PWC3. If PWC3 is not on, replace
the RB4 card K3 relay. If PWC3 is on and the Preset program is correct without
corruption, the scale Main Board needs replaced.
D. Check the “Stop Fill” button contacts to insure proper operation. Replace the button, if
needed.
E. Check the status of R5 relay. If the Cutoff Gate operates using the Start Switch, but will
not stay open when the Start Switch is released, replace R5 relay.
F. Check the status of the Cutoff Gate solenoid. If R5 relay operates, and stays on, replace the
Cutoff Gate solenoid after insuring the pneumatic circuit is working properly.
7. THE CUTOFF GATE WILL NOT CLOSE WHEN PWC2 (Tri) ACTIVATES.
A. Check the status of R2 relay.
B. Replace the R2 relay.
C. If replacing R2 relay does not repair the problem, replace RB4 card K2.
8. THE CLAMPS WILL NOT CLOSE, BUT THE FLOW GATE OPENS.
A. Replace the Clamp solenoid valve.
B. Check the pneumatic circuit.
C. Check the clamps for a mechanical jam.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
1. This machine does not require a great deal of maintenance. The best way to maintain it is keep

PRECAUTIONS
Static Electricity
CAUTION! This device contains static sensitive circuit cards and components.
Improper handling of these devices or printed circuit cards can result in damage to or
destruction of the component or card. Such actual and/or consequential damage IS
NOT covered under warranty and is the responsibility of the device owner. Electronic
components must be handled only by qualified electronic technicians who follow the
guidelines listed below.
ATTENTION! ALWAYS use a properly grounded wrist strap when handling,
removing or installing electronic circuit cards or components. Make certain that the
wrist strap ground lead is securely attached to an adequate ground. If you are
uncertain of the quality of the ground, you should consult a licensed electrician.
ALWAYS handle printed circuit card assemblies by the outermost edges. NEVER
touch the components, component leads or connectors. ALWAYS observe warning
labels on static protective bags and packaging and never remove the card or
component from the packaging until ready for use. ALWAYS store and transport
electronic printed circuit cards and components in anti-static protective bags or
packaging.
Environmental
The 210/215 indicators meet or
exceeds all certification requirements
within a temperature range of 14 to
104 °F (-10 to +40 °C).
In order to keep cooling requirements
to a minimum, the indicator should be
placed out of direct sunlight and to
provide adequate air circulation, keep
the area around the indicator clear.
Make certain the instrument is not
directly in front of a heating or cooling
vent. Such a location will subject the
indicator to sudden temperature
changes, which may result in unstable
weight readings.
Insure that the indicator has good,
clean AC power and is properly
grounded.
In areas subject to lightning strikes,
additional protection to minimize
lightning damage, such as surge
suppressors, should be installed.
4
PRECAUTIONS, Cont.
Care and Cleaning
1. DO NOT submerge the indicator in water, pour or spray water directly on it.
2. DO NOT use acetone, thinner or other volatile solvents for cleaning.
3. DO NOT expose the indicator to temperature extremes.
4. DO NOT place the indicator in front of heating/cooling vents.
5. DO clean the indicator with a damp soft cloth and mild non-abrasive detergent.
6. DO remove power before cleaning with a damp cloth.
SITE PREPARATION REQUIREMENTS
The Cardinal 210/215 indicators are precision weight-measuring instruments. As with any
precision instrument, they require an acceptable environment to operate at peak performance
and reliability. This section is provided to assist you in obtaining such an environment.
Electrical Power
The 210/215 indicators have been designed to operate from 90 to 264 VAC at 50/60 Hz. Note
that a special order is not required for operation at 230 VAC.
CAUTION! - To avoid electrical hazard and possible damage to the indicator,
DO NOT, under any circumstance, cut, remove, alter, or in any way bypass the
power cord grounding prong.
On models requiring 230 VAC power, it is the responsibility of the customer to have a
qualified electrician install the proper power cord plug which conforms to national electrical
codes and local codes and ordinances.
The power outlet for the indicator should be on a separate circuit from the distribution panel.
This circuit should be dedicated to the exclusive use of the indicator. The wiring should
conform to national and local electrical codes and ordinances and should be approved by the
local inspector to assure compliance.
To prevent electrical noise interference, make certain all other wall outlets for use with air
conditioning and heating equipment, lighting or other equipment with heavily inductive loads,
such as welders, motors and solenoids are on circuits separate from the indicator. Many of
these disturbances originate within the building itself and can seriously affect the operation of
the instrument. These sources of disturbances must be identified and steps must be taken to
prevent possible adverse effects on the instrument. Examples of available alternatives include
isolation transformers, power regulators, uninterruptible power supplies, or simple line filters.
CAUTION! When in parallel runs, locate Load Cell cables a minimum of 24"
away from all AC wiring.
5
INSTALLATION
Before beginning installation of your 210/215 Weight Indicating Instrument, make certain that
the instrument has been received in good condition. Carefully remove the instrument from the
shipping carton and inspect it for any evidence of damage (such as exterior dents or
scratches) that may have taken place during shipment. Keep the carton and packing material
for return shipment if it should become necessary. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to
file all claims for any damages or loss incurred during transit.
MOUNTING
NOTE! Should your 210/215 indicator come already installed on a scale, the following
information describing the installation of the instrument does not apply.
The Model 210/215 Indicator is housed in a NEMA 4X/IP66 stainless steel wall or desk-mount
enclosure. The gimbal may be mounted on a desktop or other smooth, flat, horizontal surface
or may be mounted on a wall. Refer to Figure No. 1 for a layout of wall-mounting bolts.

Figure No. 1
If wall mounted, make certain the mounting surface is strong enough to support the indicator.
The mounting location should be where the display is easily viewed while being close enough
to provide the operator easy access to the keypad. Carefully lay out the mounting hole
locations, then drill and install the anchor bolts. Attach the gimbal to the wall and securely
tighten the retaining bolts.

LOAD CELL CONNECTION
CAUTION! Disconnect any external load cell power supply before connecting load
cells to the indicator. Failure to do so will result in permanent damage to the
indicator.
Load Cell Cable Connection for RFI Suppression
The load cell cable should be routed through the special metallic gland connector and the
shield wire must be connected to this gland connector for grounding and to eliminate RFI.
Refer to Figure No. 2 and Figure No. 3 for the appropriate gland connector.
1. Remove the three acorn nuts securing the
Battery Access Cover to the bottom of the
indicator and then remove the battery tray
(Model 215) or the battery (Model 210).
2. After removing the battery tray or battery,
remove the 12 acorn nuts securing the back
panel to main housing.
3. Loosen and remove the metal gland
connector nut and remove the plastic insert.
4. Route the load cell cable through the nut and
plastic insert and into the enclosure.
5. With the load cell cable routed into the
enclosure, remove approximately 18 to 20
inches of the outer insulating jacket from the
cable exposing the internal wires.
6. Cut the shield wire so that it extends past the
outer jacket approximately 3/4 inch.
7. Remove 1/4" of insulation from the end of
each of the 4 wires (without sense leads) or 6
wires with sense leads (refer to figure No. 4).
8. Connect each of the wires to terminal block
P1 referring to labels on circuit board for
terminal connections. Refer to Figure No. 8
for terminal block location.

OPTICALLY ISOLATED OUTPUTS (requires additional hardware)
PRESET WEIGHT COMPARATOR CHECKWEIGHER LOGIC LEVEL OUTPUT
If desired, you may use the optically isolated outputs from your Model 210/215 indicator’s
preset weight comparators or checkweigher to remotely (up to 100 feet) control peripheral
devices used to manage the flow of material or signal when the weight is within preset limits.
J11 (12V) - ACTIVE REMOTE OUT JUMPER
The Active Remote Out jumper J11, when connected, allows the 210/215 indicator to supply
(source) 12 VDC to a solid-state relay or other load of 200 ohms or greater. To operate from
the 12 VDC source, the positive connection from the relays must be connected to the PWC
connector pins and the negative wire from the relays to the GND pin. See Figure No. 8 for
jumper and REMOTE OUTPUT connector location.
9
INSTALLATION, Cont.
For completely isolated outputs, J11 must be open (positioned on one plug-in pin only or
removed) and the user must provide 12 to 24 VDC to the SRC pin and a ground return to the
load. The load must still be 200 ohms or greater.
To connect the control cable to the preset weight comparator/checkweigher logic level output
connector P10, first loosen the gland connector located on the right side on the back of the
210/215. Refer to Figure No. 8 for the exact location of the connector. Slip the cable through
the connector and into the enclosure. Remove 2 inches of the cable insulating jacket and then
1/4 inch of insulation from each of the internal wires (refer to Figure No. 4). Make the proper
terminations on terminal block P10. To terminate a wire, first press down on the terminal block
release bar, insert the wire into the terminal and remove pressure from the release bar locking
the wire in place.
RELAY BOARD - (Optional)
The relay board (Cardinal p/n 8539-C062-0A) is mounted in the RB4-F external junction box
for use with the 210/215 Indicator. Connect devices to be controlled as shown in Figure No. 7.
The relays must be configured to be on (closed) or off (open) at weights under the preset
weight then switch at the preset weight from on-to-off or off-to-on by setting the under weight
condition to on or off during setup and calibration or setup review. Refer to the Setup and
Calibration, “d out” (Digital Output) section of this manual for more information.
EXAMPLE: d oUt= 1,1
The PWC1 relay is on (closed) for weights under the preset weight and off (open) for weights
equal to or over the preset weight.

MAIN PCB JUMPERS
J1 - BATTERY CHARGE MODE (210 Only)
Place jumper J1 in the Full position when operating the indicator totally from battery power and
only recharging the battery pack when it is low. Place jumper J1 in the Trickle position when
operating the indicator from commercial power and using the battery pack to supply power only
in the event of a power loss.
J2 - AUTO-ON JUMPER
The AUTO-ON jumper J2, when connected, will cause the indicator to power on automatically
whenever power is applied to the power input connector. If power is lost momentarily and then
reapplied, the indicator will turn on without pressing the ON key.
J3 - 8V EXCITATION JUMPER
The 8V EXCITATION jumper J3, when connected, sets the load cell excitation voltage to 8V
for operation with the 12 VDC battery. To operate from the 12 VDC battery, the load cell
excitation voltage MUST be set to 8 VDC (J3 closed). Battery operation with the load cell
excitation voltage set to 12V will result in an unstable weight display.
J4 AND J5 - SENSE JUMPERS
If the sense leads are NOT used, you must install plug-in jumpers at J4 and J5 adjacent to the
terminal block. These jumpers attach the sense leads to the excitation leads. If sense leads
ARE used (as in motor truck scales), these plug-in jumpers should be positioned on one plugin pin only or removed and stored for later use.
J10 - DEAD LOAD BOOST JUMPER
For very low dead loads (less than 10% of the combined load cell capacity) connect the dead
load boost jumper J10 on the printed circuit board.
J11 – PWC SRC (SOURCE)
The J11 jumper, when connected (closed) supplies 12 VDC from the 210/215 indicator to a
solid-state relay or other load of 200 ohms or greater. When J11 is open (positioned on one
plug-in pin only or removed), the 12 to 24 VDC must be provided from an external source to
P10-6. The load must still be 200 ohms or greater.
RE-INSTALLING THE REAR PANEL
After all terminations have been made, remove the excess cable from the instrument enclosure
and securely tighten each of the cable gland connectors. Do not over-tighten these connectors
but make certain they are snug. DO NOT USE TOOLS! Finger tighten only! Insure any
unused gland connectors are plugged.
1. Make certain no cables or wires are exposed between the main housing and rear panel and
then place the rear panel onto the main housing.
2. Secure with the 12 acorn nuts removed earlier. Follow a diagonal pattern when tightening
the acorn nuts.
3. On the Model 215, place the narrow end of the battery tray in the guides of the opening.
4. Slide the battery tray into the opening, until you feel resistance and the edge of the battery
tray is flush with the bottom of the indicator.
5. Replace the Battery Access Cover and install the three acorn nuts removed earlier,
securing the battery tray in place.
IMPORTANT! On the Model 215, the battery tray (with or without batteries) must be
installed for the indicator to function.

FILTER SETTING RECOMMENDATIONS
Non Critical Sample Rate
If the sample rate is not critical, as in static weighing, set dFLt= to “0” (no filtering),
dFLt= “1” (F=6, b=12, Sr= 2/Sec), or dFLt= “2” (F=6, b=8, Sr= 1/Sec).
Critical Sample Rate
If the sample rate is critical, as in a filling operation, use the Custom Filtering (set dFLt= to
“3”).
1. Sr= SAMPLE RATE (1 to 100 samples/second) determination:
Set the sample rate as close as possible to produce a display graduation change for
every graduation of material added to the scale.
Material Flow Rate (lbs/second) = Sr
Resolution
EXAMPLE:
100lbs/sec = 10s/s = Sr
10lbs
2. b= BREAK RANGE (1 to 255 graduations) determination:
Turn the filtering off by setting the dFLt= setting to “0”. Operate the system as it will be
normally used and, by observation, determine the number of grads of instability that
needs to be filtered out. Set the break range (b=) to that value.
Weight Change

CALIBRATION MODES
The 210/215 indicators have five modes that can be used to perform calibration. Three of the
modes require a test load or test weights, one requires the scale to be empty (and at zero) and
the last uses the calibration “C” numbers from a previous calibration. The modes are as
follows:
1. Dual-Point with Zero (First Zero)
This is a standard calibration method requiring one weight, an empty scale and has one
conversion factor. This method uses two calibration points (CAL1= and CAL2=) to
establish a zero (no load) calibration value and to span the indicator. The two points
correspond to zero weight and the test load or test weight and can be applied in any order.
This method should be used for first-time calibration and complete recalibration.
2. Dual-Point without Zero (False Zero)
This calibration method requires one test weight and establishes a new conversion factor
only. It is used to establish a false (temporary zero) zero without affecting the zero
calibration value stored during the last calibration. This is particularly useful in tank
weighing applications, where it may be impractical or impossible to completely empty the
tank. This method uses two calibration points, CAL1= and CAL2=. The value of the test
weight is entered when CAL1= is displayed and the NET/GROSS key is pressed when
CAL2= is displayed.
3. Single-Point for Span Only (Last Zero)
This calibration method requires one test weight and establishes a new conversion factor
(span) without affecting the zero calibration value stored during the last calibration. This
minimizes placing and removing test weights and is especially useful when checking high
capacity scales. This method uses two calibration points, CAL1= and CAL2=. The value
of the test weight is entered when CAL1= is displayed and the ZERO key is pressed when
CAL2= is displayed.
4. Single-Point for Zero Only (Only Zero)
This calibration method requires no test weight, an empty scale and establishes a new
zero without affecting the conversion factor (span). This is useful to regain the full range of
zero limit when the dead load of the scale has changed. This would occur for example, if a
guard rail has been added to the scale platform. This method uses two calibration points,
CAL1= and CAL2=. The ENTER key is pressed when CAL1= is displayed and the ZERO
key is pressed when CAL2= is displayed.
5. Calibration “C” Numbers
The calibration “C” numbers (C1, C2, C3 and C4) are displayed only during the Test mode
operation and are shown at the end of the test. Each number is displayed for
approximately 4 seconds, allowing you to record them. These numbers correspond to the
calibration setting of the indicator. The numbers may be up to three digits in length. By
recording these numbers you will be able to return the indicator to its present calibration
settings without using test weights simply by entering the “C” numbers. Refer to the
Calibration "C" Number section of this manual for instructions on viewing the “C” numbers.

BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE
The 210/215 indicators have been designed to provide you with years of trouble-free
operation. However, should you experience a problem, please refer to the troubleshooting
guide below before you call for service. The following describes several types of symptoms
along with suggested remedies.
PROBLEM
Display does not turn on
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
AC operation:
Is the AC power cord fully inserted into the wall
receptacle? Check wall receptacle for proper AC power.
Try another electrical appliance in the same receptacle,
does it work? Check the circuit breaker. Has there been
power failure?
Battery operation:
Check if battery is installed and correctly. Is battery
discharged - replace or recharge.
NOTE! The battery tray (with or without batteries)
must be installed for the Model 215 to function.
Incorrect weight displayed
Has the instrument been calibrated? Insure that the scale
platform isn’t touching an adjacent object. Check the load
cell connector wiring. If using four (4) wire load cells,
insure the sense lead jumpers (J4 & J5) are installed.
Have proper operation procedures been followed?
Indicator will not
display weight
Refer to Error Codes section and make certain that the
"oCAP" message is not displayed. If so, and scale is not
loaded, perform the calibration sequence.
The printer prints but does
not use the Print Tab Settings
