2. Press the TARE button on the front of the meter. The lights marked TARE, LOCK and Channel A
should be on.

this value and return to normal weighing mode. You are now ready to fine-tune your scale system.
Fine Tuning Mixer Scale Calibration
Just before loading, verify that the empty Tare Weight is at zero. If it is not, repeat the steps listed under
Set Tare (Empty) Weight. Obtain a full load of concrete. Stop the drum rotation and drive truck a short
distance (up to ¼ mile) to settle the material. The truck should be on level ground. Compare the weight
displayed on the V320 meter to that of the batch plant ticket or platform scale.
If the calibration of the truck scale requires adjustment, begin by pressing the meter’s CAL button twice.
The red indicator lights for CAL and LOCK will turn on. The red lights for Channel A, and lb will
flash. The meter will continue displaying the weight. Adjust the meter to match the batch plant ticket or
platform scale by pressing the S or T button on the meter. After adjusting the net weight, press CAL
once to save the new calibration setting and return to normal weighing mode. The CAL indicator light
will turn off.
Lock the Calibration Settings
Vulcan On-Board Scales recommends the use of this locking feature. This prevents the loss, or
unauthorized modification, of the calibration and Tare Weight settings. To activate the lock setting:
1. With the meter in normal weighing mode, press PWR/MENU button.
2. Press the CYCLE button 5 times. The meter should display PL OFF which designates that Program
Lock is turned off.
3. Press the S or T button to switch the program lock setting to ON.
4. Press PWR/MENU again to return to normal weighing mode.
