Check the condition of the scale, as it arrives from the shipping company. It is extremely important that if
damage is noted, a freight claim is filed by your company at this point. The shipper cannot file a freight
claim on your behalf and it is imperative that before the scale system is removed from the crate that it be
inspected thoroughly.
The scale preweighs the product prior to discharging it into the bag. The typical model is designed for
handling 10-14, 50 lb. (25 kg.) bags per minute at () 2 oz. to 3 oz accuracy (55 to 85 grams) at 2 Sigma
The scale can be supplied in simplex, duplex or triplex operation. The
scale has 3 sections:
1) The Feeder Section is the section most associated with weight accuracy.
The feeder section can be one of the following designs:
 Gravity Gate (2 position)
 Gravity Gate/Vibratory Feeder
 Single Vibratory (2-speed feed rate)
 Belt 2 Position Pneumatic Flow Gate or Variable Speed Controller
(2 Speed feed rate)
 Twin Auger Variable Speed Controller
The feeder is chosen based on product flow characteristics.
All scales are designed with 2-speed feed rates, both fast and slow fill. Typically the slow or dribble
fill should be set for no greater than 5 lbs. (2 ½ kg.) per second fill rate.
2) The Center Section of the scale is where the actual weighing is accomplished. The weighing is
accomplished in a weigh hopper supplied with double door design. The weigh hopper is available in 2
cubic foot, 3 ½ cubic foot and 4 cubic foot as standard. The size of the weigh hopper is determined by
the bulk density of your product and the target weight. The center section also includes the complete
pneumatic filter regulator assembly and the weighing load cells and valves. This section also includes
a transition to connect up to a bag clamp assembly or into other automated equipment.
3) The spout is designed for holding the bag in place during the discharge cycle. The spout can be
supplied in either air operated dust tight design with a 21”, 25”, or 31” (52, 62, or 77 cm.)
circumference spout as standard. We also have a clam shell design spout which is designed to work on
bags with a larger than 28” (70 cm.) circumference. Only one clam shell size spout is available, and is
typically used in non-dusty applications.
The scale can be operated with either a pneumatic foot pedal or a hand switch on the spout assembly.
The scale should be installed with the bottom of the spout typically 48” (1.2 meters) from floor level. This
is typically ideal height for the operator to work at. If the scale is being supplied with an automatic bag
placer, check the prints to verify dimensions for installation.
The 48” (1.2 meters) is divided by a maximum bag height of 36” (.9 meters) and 12” (.3 meters) for the
conveyor. If the bag is shorter than 36” (.9 meters), the height of the conveyor is typically raised to suit. If,
however, the bag is taller than 36” (.9 meters), the height of the scale will have to be adjusted accordingly.
The process controller needs to be positioned in an area easily accessible by the operator of the scale. The
operator must be able to visually see the digital display and be capable of touching the panel to make
The scale is supplied with a filter regulator system for receiving air. A ¼” male quick connect pipe
connection is supplied on the scale. The scale will require 100 PSI air pressure at 4 cubic feet per minute on
a simplex and 7 to 8 cubic feet per minute on a duplex.
There are two filter regulators on each scale. The upper unit is designed for handling the pneumatic needs
of the feeder section and the weigh hopper. The lower unit is designed for handling the complete pneumatic
needs of the bag clamp assembly.
The following charts apply to typical pneumatic needs of the feeder and weigh hopper.
Belt Fed Scale
60 PSI
Single Vibratory (2 Speed)
60 PSI
Gravity/Gravity Scale
80 PSI
Gravity/Vibrator Scale
60 PSI
Auger Fed Scale
60 PSI
The lower regulator to supply the pneumatic needs of the bag clamp assembly has been factory set at 80
PSI. The amount of pressure here is determined by the weight of your bag and the material of your bag.
The amount of pressure here should be set only with enough pressure to hold the bag in place during the
discharge of the weigh hopper. Typically on 50 lb. (25 kg.) paper bags, the pressure will be set between 60
and 90 PSI.
On bags of 110 lbs. (50 kg.) the setting can be 100 PSI.
After the scale has been installed, it is extremely important that the scale be rigidly attached either to a
support system from the floor or a support system from the bins. If the bins have vibrators attached to
them, it is generally recommended that the support system be connected to the floor. Vibration to the scale
will cause inaccuracies. The scale also needs to have rigid supports as the weight of the scale is as follows:
Belt Fed Scale
Gravity/Gravity Scale
Gravity/Vibrator Scale
Auger Fed Scale
1,200 Lbs.
950 Lbs.
1,100 Lbs.
1,200 Lbs.
You should also account for the weight of the product in the weigh hopper, plus the weight of the product in
a bag held from the spout and head pressure from your surge hopper above when designing the supports for
the scale. When installing the net weigh bagging scale on your bin, head pressure is a concern. The bin
must be large enough to ensure that three weighments of product are available at all times above the feeder
to ensure accurate weighments. However, too much product and head pressure on the feeder can cause
problems. Especially in products where the bin is large and mounted directly over the feeder. This can
cause stress on the feeder and can cause inaccuracies.
A baffle or some type of method of suppressing the force of your product on our feeder is recommended in
many instances. The installation of such baffle is extremely important. The baffle must not cause bridging
of your product in the bin, but it also must be installed in such a way that the pressure from directly above
the feeder is limited.
Baffles are most always used in stone, cement and other products with bulk densities of greater than 80 lbs.
per cubic foot. Baffles are almost never used in industries such as soil or flour based products where
bridging can easily occur.
When installing the spout on the scale, check for the front and rear position. On dust tight spouts, the air
cylinder will be on the operator’s right side. This spout has a bracket to hold the microswitch. The
microswitch has been wired up to the scale and is generally shipped attached to the main scale section. This
microswitch and bracket assembly needs to be connected to the spout on initial installation. This bracket is
on the back left of the spout. Most air operated dust tight spouts are supplied with a pneumatic foot pedal.
The pneumatic foot pedal assembly has been shipped in a box loose from the spout. There are three airlines
connecting this spout to the foot pedal. The longest airline connects to the filter regulator attached to the
lower part of the CM-780 scale. The next longest airline connects to the air cylinder on the right side of the
scale; the port closest to the operator, and the shortest airline connects to the air cylinder on the right hand
side of the scale; the port furthest from the operator.
This arrangement will typically have the bag clamp assembly in the closed position. When the operator
steps on the foot pedal, the clamps will open, thus releasing the filled bag, the operator will then insert the
next bag, release the foot pedal and the clamps will close. In this arrangement, the operator does not have to
stand on the foot pedal when the bag is filling. If your plant desires to have this sequence of operation
reversed, reverse the A and B airlines on the foot pedal.
Please see included wiring schematic for installation. The main scale assembly on the scale has a terminal strip with
numbers. The controller was disconnected for shipping purposes. The controller has been pre-wired with connection
cables. Please follow the schematic for matching color codes for wire terminating to bagging scale.
The controller (duplex or triplex scales) has a terminal strip with numbers/letters. These need to be matched to the
same numbers/letters on the terminal strip at the scale housing. You will need to provide control wire for the
connections. Please do not use anything less than 16 AWG stranded wire. Please see local electrical codes for length
of run and AWG specifications. The load cell cable is connected within the controller and includes 15 feet to connect
to the summing box on the bagging scale.
Please do not run high voltage (90 VAC or higher) in the same conduit as the low voltage control wire. You can
either run this in the same conduit as the load cell cable or provide its own separate conduit. A pre-punched hole is
included for incoming power, control wire and load cell cable (3 total).
The load cells have cable connecting into a common load cell summing box. This load cell summing box needs to
connect through the bottom of the controller and terminate via the green terminal block in the Rinstrum. You will
find this on the top right corner on the back side of the controller face (labeled Load Cell).
It is extremely important to remember that load cell cable and wire cannot be run in the same conduit. You must run
one conduit for the wire and a separate conduit for the load cell cable or else there is a possibility of line interference
to the load cells causing weight inaccuracies.
The programmable controller is designed to work with a clean grounded isolated 110V or 220V supply, an amp
fuse is provided.
If the scale is supplied with an auger or belt feeder, and with or a without variable speed drive, then the 3 phase power
is connected to the terminal strip in the feeder’s control box. This terminal strip is marked L1, L2 and L3 (see
attached schematic).
All motors have been clearly marked with their voltage requirements. Verify prior to installing 3 phase power. On
110V/220V connections to control panel, it is extremely important that this voltage be verified before being
introduced to the scale system. The incoming 110V power should be connected to L and N on the terminal strip.
Verify you have a clean neutral that no voltage is present between ground and neutral. The ground wire to L should
be 110V () 15%.

The following is a simple sequence of operation and will be more detailed for different types of units
1. Set programmable controller using final weight, free fall, and preliminary. Final weight is your target
weight, Free fall is the amount of product in suspension, and Preliminary is the amount of slow fill weight.
The fast feed cutoff is final weight less preliminary and slow feed cutoff is final weight less free fall.
Example: Settings 50 lb. final weight, .6 lb. free fall, and 20 lb. preliminary. The feeder will run fast for 30
lb., then slow until 49.4 lb., then off. The product in suspension would fall and the weight will be 50 lb.
2. Turn scale to on. Scale will now run through fast feed, slow feed, and weigh complete.
3. Place bag on spout. When spout closes, o.k. to discharge signal will be provided.
4. Weigh hopper will be discharged. Weigh hopper doors will close and feeding cycle will repeat.
The scale is designed for fast feed, slow feed, weigh complete and discharge operations. Lights on the
inside of the programmable controller display each of these functions. Lights on the valve also display
when the valve has been energized.
It is extremely important to remember that problems can be mechanical, electrical or pneumatic. The light
sequencing features allow your operators to determine if the problems are pneumatic or electrical.
The valves that we supply have push button overrides on each valve and each valve has speed controls
mounted directly underneath the valve between the valve and the baseplate. If the valve receives an
electrical signal from the control panel, it lights. If the valve does not operate, then it probably is a
pneumatic problem. If the light does not come on and you an manually override the valve by pushing in on
the override push button, then you have an electrical problem.
Before operating your scale, pull down on the weigh hopper 5 or 10 times fairly hard. The weight on the
indicator should return to 0 or the starting point each and every time. If it fails to do so, a mechanical
problem could be present. Mechanical problems are described in the troubleshooting portion of this
The scale is designed to provide you with optimum speed and accuracy on each and every product that you
run through the scale. When setting your scale, you must set the controller for excessive slow fill. Typically
setting a target weight of 50 lbs. and prelim of 30 lbs. would create a fast fill of 20 lbs. and a
slow fill of 30 lbs. Remember that in slow fill, a maximum rate is 5 lbs. per second.
Once you have run several bags, the weight over 50 lbs. needs to be entered into the free fall value on the
600 series programmable controller. For example, if 51.00 lbs. is obtained, 1.0 lb. is entered into free fall.
This will stop the feeder at 49.00 lbs. and allow for 1.0 lb. of free fall to accomplish a 50.00 lb. weighment.
First and foremost, you must make the scale accurate. DO NOT ATTEMPT EVER TO ADJUST FOR
By lowering the value of the prelim, will subsequently increase the fast fill and reduce the slow fill.
Continue to decrease the prelim value until the accuracy is lost.
Once you have obtained ideal speed and accuracy for this product, these values can be retained in the
product “#” feature. See controller instructions.
Bag clamps (spouts)
The most ergonomically correct height for the spout is 48 inches (1.2 meters) to the floor. Exception to this rule
is that the bag closing conveyor should not be lower than 12 inches
(305 mm) to the floor. If the bag is taller than 36 to 37 inches (914 to 940 mm) then height will have to be
adjusted upward to ensure a gap to allow the bag to fall and clear the spout.
Bags are placed on the spouts manually by operators. The clamps are operated by a foot pedal, hand wand switch
or special order push buttons. Normally in plants where fertilizer, salt or other corrosive products are handled,
foot pedals are not recommended. But foot pedals seem to be the most operator friendly device.
Hanging the bags safely is critical to a successful operation.
Bags manufactured of paper or laminated poly propylene have excellent rigidity and are the easiest to work with.
Poly woven, cloth and low density poly ethylene bags have the least rigidity and are more difficult for the
operator to hang.
Bags with rigidity are generally placed by the operator in the following manner.
1. Grab the bag with right hand approximately 12” (304 mm) from the top.
2. Slide the bag over the right end of the spout, allowing the shape of the spout to open the bag.
3. When bag is approximately 4” (101 mm) on the spout, activate the clamping assembly.
4. Operator’s right hand will now be approximately 8” (203 mm) below the clamps.
On bags with less rigidity the operator’s hand or hands will need to be closer to the top of bag. Subsequently,
closer to the bag clamps and more care needs to be taken by the operator.
On cloth and low density poly propylene bags two hands may be required to hang the bag. The operator needs to
make sure his/her hands are clear of the spout assembly before activating the clamp switch/foot pedal.
The bag clamps not only support bags during the filling but also some models are designed to control dust. To
control dust the spout assembly and brackets that hold the bag must be of very close tolerance.
Close tolerance also means pinch point. All dust tight spouts are designed with spring loaded brackets that hold
the belting material. This minimizes the risk to the operator’s hand but the dust tight design is more cumbersome
to most operators than the center grip or clam shell spout.
Clam shell spouts are designed for bags with a minimum 28” (711 mm) circumference. This fits the industry
standard rule that spout circumferences need to be at least 5” (127 mm) smaller than the circumference of the
smallest bag being used. If the circumference of the spout and the circumference of the bag are 5” (127 mm) or
less it is cumbersome for the operator to place the bag on the spout assembly.
The dust tight spouts (DT) and center grip spouts (CG) are available in a variety of sizes so these are basically
customized to the bags being used in normal operations. The normal shape is pecan or US football shaped. This
helps in opening the bag during placement and does not misshape the bag during the filling operation. It is
important that the bag not be misshaped to ensure an easier motion of the operator to close the bag after it has
been filled and discharged.
Not all spouts are identical in size or shape. Some products pass through round spouts more easily. Round
spouts, however are generally harder for operators to use than pecan shaped spouts.
A separate air regulator is provided for all bag clamps. Each pneumatic system valve cylinder includes speed
control. The amount of air pressure required is trial and error. The amount of air used should only be enough to
firmly hold the heaviest bag without any slippage. The speed controls are factory set and clearly marked “do not
adjust” in three languages; English, Spanish and French. Do not adjust the speed controls.
On gross weigh scales operators can operate the bag clamp without the possibility of the product passing
through. On gross weigh digital scales, digital net weigh scales a “hold/run” switch is provided. In run mode the
operation of the clamp will activate the product flow. In hold the clamps can be operated without activating
product flow. Operators who want to test their skill on spouts must put the scale in “hold” first or risk
discharging product unwanted. By placing the scales in “hold” will eliminate the possibility of spillage.
If a finger would get caught in the spout assembly, don’t panic. We are not aware of any broken bones in 30+
years of manufacturing these products.
Most damage is done by pulling out. The clamps require 50 to 80 lbs of air pressure normally to hold a standard
50 lb bag. Operators normally cannot pull out of this clamp assembly with said pressure. By pulling out the skin
can be torn or a fingernail can be lost, depending on the position of the hand when clamped. Generally it is far
better for the operator not to panic and wait for the release of air pressure.
If the scale has an automatic release, bag clamps will automatically open in a few seconds, releasing the
operator. For quicker release please refer to the following.
Gross weigh mechanical scales: depress foot pedal and hold foot pedal. The clamps will automatically open.
Gorss and Net weigh digital scales: F1 key turns the bag clamps off. The clamps will
automatically open. Gross weigh mechanical models: turn on/off push button to “off” position.
On any model scale, “quick disconnect” air has been supplied. Disconnect air and all pressure will be released.
Safety is everyone’s concern. New operators should manually hang bags without product until they feel secure.
Do not operate if you feel your personal skill levels do not allow you to operate this spout safely.
All bearings on the scale are greaseable. These must be lubricated not less than once every 6
months. This will, however, be determined by the product and the scale usage.
Gearboxes if supplied on your scale should have oil changed annually. Check gearbox oil level before
starting system to ensure that oil has not leaked out in shipment.
Check rubber bumpers on scale weekly.

If a bumper is found to be excessively worn, replace immediately. If a scale is allowed to operate with a
bumper omitted, structural damage will occur.
The gravity gate feeder is used for free flowing products and is air operated. The gravity system works on a single radial gate
controlled by two air cylinders mounted back to back. With the unit in fast feed or full open
position, both cylinders are retracted. The opening of fast feed can be reduced with a mechanical stop located on the top backside
of the gate housing. When the scale changes to slow feed, one cylinder will extend and the gate will become partially closed. The
slow feed rate can be changed with a mechanical linkage on the air cylinders. When weigh complete is achieved, the second
cylinder will extend and the gate will close completely.
Note: Normal setting for slow or dribble feed is 2.0 lbs. of material per second
Adjustment for slow fill should be made first. The unit should be set to run the entire cycle in slow fill. The unit should fill at
approximately 2.0 lbs. per second (this is a guide and not a set value), size and density will effect filling rates. Using the handle
attached to the back of the dual cylinders, screw in to decrease and out to increase the filling rate. After several bags have been
run all slow fill and weights are correct, then the fast filling adjustment can be made. The fast fill adjustment is adjusted with the
handle on top of the gate. Screw the handle in to decrease and out to increase. The flow should be set at a slow rate and slowly
increased until there is a uniform filling. Each time the fill rate is increased, an adjustment may need to be made to the PS-1 value
or time.
1. Lube 4 bearings, 2 external and 2 internal periodically.
2. Mechanical limiting adjustments - grease lightly to prevent rusting in place.
3. Periodically check rubber gate stop bumpers. Adjust as needed and replace when rubber feels brittle.
4. Periodically check rubber gate seals both front and back.
The weigh hopper is a double door air operated hopper. This unit normally has a limit switch to give a
signal that the doors are closed and the weighing can start. Also included in this section are steady rods to
prevent the hopper from swinging side to side but will allow it to move up and down freely. The discharge
time duration is controlled by an internal timer (refer to programmable controller instruction manual) and
should be set to allow the product to clear the hopper. Any excess time is wasted and reduces the cycle rate
of the scale.
1. Lubricate 4 bearings periodically.
2. Check steady rod for tightness periodically.
Remove air supply
Remove scale transition and bagging spout.
Disconnect the hopper air cylinder by first removing the cotter pins located in the mounting bolts ½”
nuts. Take note of the amount of spacer washers between the air cylinder and door actuator brackets.
Remove the airlines from the air fittings by holding in the expansion ring while pulling on the airline.
Remove the male rod end and base bracket and female rod end from the old air cylinder.
Swap out air fittings and rod ends from old air cylinder to the new replacement weigh hopper air
Drill a 1/8” hole through the female rod end and install cotter pin.
(Note) that both the male and female rod ends are on as tight as possible before drilling hole.
Re-install air cylinder facing in same direction utilizing the hardware removed earlier.
When weigh hopper doors are in the closed position, the hopper door cylinder should not bottom out. There
should be around ¼” clearance before the actual cylinder can bottom out. A way to check this is to
manually operate the air cylinder numerous times until a small dirt ring forms on the shaft of the air
cylinder r and then make sure that the ring is showing about ¼” when the doors are in the closed position. If
¼” is not present, you must remove the female rod-end from the cylinder and cut ¼” from the rod end then
re-install on cylinder shaft and pin.

JEM International Service or Technical Support: 913‐441‐4788 Email: info@jemscales.com Application Name:
JEM-423-BAT-120 Net Weigh
Application Overview:
This application is for a simplex net weigh controller that allows for single scale
operation and 1 - 4-20mA analog reference for variable feeder control.
Operation Sequence:
1. With the scale in “IDLE” the operator will select a recipe and/or edit the target
and timer values accordingly. More details found in the Operator Configuration
2. To start weighing product the operator will press the “START” button on the
indicator. The emergency stop must be pulled out to operate the scale.
3. Once started the scale will fill to its target weight.
4. Once the scale has reached its target value it will display “DUMP”… in the lower
right corner, waiting for the operator to activate the dump enable switch.
5. The operator will hold a bag on the spout and activate the dump switch.
a. The dump switch triggers the bag clamp to close, and commands the
scale to discharge the contents of the hopper into the bag.
b. After the first filling cycle the dump switch can be activated at any time to
clamp a new bag, and does not have to wait for the scale to be done
6. After the product has discharged into the bag, the scale will automatically refill
and be ready for the next discharge cycle.
a. After discharging, the cycle counter will increase, and the data for that bag
will be stored in the indicator. See DataStore section for details on data
i. The bag clamp will then open to drop the bag after the BAG.DLY
timer has expired.
