Section 1: General Information
Scale Description
Fairbanks Scales TeleWeigh™ Health Scale is designed for weighing people and
communicating that information to a variety of devices, via wireless Bluetooth®. The
scale has its own calibration parameters and a display for showing measurements
and audible alerts for signaling the user. The scale has the ability to store up to 10
measurement results in memory. A settable real time clock is also included for
measurement time stamping.
•
The scale is capable of working in a Stand Alone mode. In this mode the scale
displays weight to the LCD display. The weight is shown in either pounds (lb) or
kilograms (kg) depending on the setting of the slide switch on the bottom of the
scale. See Section 2 step 5.

Section 2: Installation
Unpacking and Setup
1. Remove the scale from the packing box.
2. To install the four (4) AA Batteries, lift the
battery cover.
3. Match the correct poles and insert two
batteries in one direction, then two in the
other direction.
4. Replace the battery cover.
5. On the bottom-side of the scale, move the switch to the appropriate setting.
− lb (Pounds) is used for Standard English
Weighments.
− kg (Kilogram) is used for Metric
Weighments.
− BT (Bluetooth® Communications) is
used for communicating the weighment from
the scale to an external wireless Remote
Bluetooth device.
6. Place the scale on a flat surface where it will be used. The scale should be level.
Step on the scale briefly and then step off the scale. This will activate the scale.
Allow the scale to zero itself and turn itself off.

Section 3: Bluetooth Communications
Bluetooth® Introduction
The Fairbanks TeleWeigh™ Health Scale, shown in Figure 3.1 below, is designed to
communicate with external Bluetooth® enabled devices using compatible
communications software. These devices are called Remote Devices. They can be
computers, health monitoring equipment or other Bluetooth® enabled devices. They
are programmed by the Remote Device manufacturer to use one of several
Bluetooth® communications methods. Please refer to the Remote Device manual for
the specific steps required to use the Fairbanks TeleWeigh™ Health Scale with the
Remote Device.
NOTE: Not all Bluetooth® enabled
devices have software to communicate
with the TeleWeigh™ Health Scale. The
scale is designed to be part of a system
when the Bluetooth® interface is used.
The system consists of the scale plus a
Remote Device.

Section 4: Operation
Modes of Operation
There are two basic modes of operation, Stand Alone Weighing Operations and
Weighing with BlueTooth® Communications.
Stand Alone Weighing
Operations
1. On the bottom-side of the scale,
move the switch to the one of
these settings.
▪ lb (Pounds) is used for
Avoirdupois Weighments.
▪ kg (Kilogram) is used for
Metric Weighments.
2. Once the switch is selected, place
the scale on a flat surface where it
will be used.
3. Stand on the scale. This will activate the scale.
4. The scale will beep once to indicate it has started a measurement cycle and
start displaying the weight.
5. Once the weight is stable, the scale will beep twice, indicating the weight has
been captured and the display will show the captured weight.
6. Step off the scale. The displayed weight is held on the display for about ten
(10) seconds.
7. After the ten (10) seconds, the scale will briefly try to re-zero itself for the next
weighment, provided there is less than ten (10) pounds on scale.
8. The scale will turn off and the weighing process is complete..

Section 4: Operation
Weighing with Bluetooth® Communications
1. On the bottom-side of the scale, move the
switch to the appropriate setting.
▪ BT (Bluetooth®
Communications) is used for
communicating the weighment from
the scale to an external wireless
Remote Bluetooth device.
2. Once the switch is selected, place the
scale on a flat surface where it will be used.
3. Stand on the scale. This will activate the scale.
4. The scale will beep once to indicate it has started a measurement cycle and
start displaying the weight. The scale will establish communications with the
remote Bluetooth® device.
5. The scale will indicate a Bluetooth® connection has been established by
turning on the CONNECTED indicator on the display.
6. Once the weight is stable, the scale will beep twice, indicating the weight has
been captured and the display will show the captured weight.
7. Step off the scale. The displayed weight is held on the display for at least ten
(10) seconds.
8. The captured weight is sent to the remote Bluetooth® device. If the Remote
device does not confirm the weight has been received the scale will retry
several times to resend the weight. If the weight is not accepted the scale will
beep three times and display to indicate the weight was not sent. The
unsent weight is stored internally to be resent during the next measurement
cycle. The scale can store up to 10 measurements internally.
9. After the communication is complete, the scale will briefly try to re-zero itself
for the next weighment, provided there is less than ten (10) pounds on scale.
10. The scale will turn off and the weighing process is complete.

Section 4: Operation
Manual Zero Operation
The scale may need to be manually
zeroed occasionally. The following
procedure will perform a manual zero of
the scale.
1. While the display is still active (thirty
seconds), press the Zero Button. using
an item such as a straightened paper clip or
toothpick.
•
This is the top hole on the bottom of
the scale near the Mode Switch.
2. Once the switch has been pressed, place the scale on a flat surface where it will
be used.
3. The scale will set itself to zero (0.0) and be ready for use.

Scale Maintenance
Installing Batteries
1. To install the four (4) AA Batteries, lift the
battery cover.
2. Match the correct poles and insert two
batteries in one direction, then two in the
other direction.
3. Replace the battery cover.
Finding the Best Location
•
Place the scale on a flat, solid, level floor.
•
When the scale is to be used with a remote Bluetooth® device the scale location
must be within radio range of the remote device. Follow the Remote Device’s
setup procedure to confirm communication between the scale and the Remote
Device.
•
Keep the scale in a location completely away from all high water, such as lowlying areas that may flood, and away from any drain pipes.
Cleaning the Scale
•
Use a moist cotton cloth to clean the scale.
− If spray cleaner is needed for shoe sole marks, squirt it into the cloth, and not
directly onto the scale.
− Use only tap water in the cloth to wipe off the scale’s clear plastic display.
