Introduction to Control
Bird Scale Control
Viewing Screen
The viewing Screen has a display that has up to four lines. What is viewed on the
screen is determined by the soft key located on each side, and at the bottom of
the screen.
Soft Keys
The Soft Key determines what subject you are viewing. Each Soft Key can have
multiple subjects as you move within the screen. The Back Key, (Item 1, Figure 3),
takes you back to the previous screen. If an Alarm is present you press the Alarm
Key, (Item 2, Figure 3), to remove the Alarm indication from the screen.
Edit Key
If you are in an editable screen, you press the Edit Key, (Item 3, Figure 3), to
highlight the cursor and edit a setting.
Enter Key
The Enter Key, (Item 4, Figure 3), is used after you have changed a setting. The
change will not be accepted without pressing the Enter Key after making the change.
Navigation Keys
The Navigation Keys, (Item 5, Figure 3), will move the cursor around the screen.
Use the Up, Down, and Side arrows to move the cursor in the appropriate direction.
These Keys also allow you to scroll up or down within a screen. To scroll rapidly,
use the scroll up and down Keys. (Item 6, Figure 3).
Numeric Keypad
The Numeric Keypad is used to enter a number value in the setup. Existing numbers
can also be increased or decreased by using the plus and minus keys (Item 7, Figure
3). As a reminder, any changes that are entered must be followed by the enter key.

Either 110V or 220V can be used. We Recommend 220V wherever possible.
When possible, the Control needs to be wired to its own separate circuit breaker.
Mount the Control in a dry, warm area with the screen at a comfortable eye level with a
minimum of glare.
The Control needs to be mounted firmly to the wall using the screw holes located in the
back of the box.
Ground the Control properly. Refer to local code requirements.
Use water tight plastic connectors in the bottom of the box where the power and scale
wires enter the box.
To avoid damage from voltage spikes (lightning), the use of surge suppression is
strongly recommended.
Do not run scale wires together with incoming power wires.
Wire to the Load Cells must be six-conductor, 22 gauge, with a shield. There is 250 feet
of wire included with each pair of scales.
The scales can only be mounted a maximum of 120 feet from the Control. If you have to
exceed this distance then an SJB (signal amplifier) must be used. See the wiring diagrams for wiring these installations.
In a house with a central workroom and half house brooding, position the scales equal
distance from the center of the house. One in the brood end, and one in the non-brood
end.
Position the scales between the inner most feeder and drinker lines if the space permits.
If there is not enough room between the lines for easy operation, then place the scales
inside the inner most line (See Figure 4).

When running the cable from the scales, make sure you do not run them with other
wires, and if you have to cross a wire carrying line voltage, make sure you do it at a 90
degree angle.
Use the provided hardware to hang the scales. In a steel truss house, the cup hook may
have to be replaced with a hook with threaded bolt end.

Wiring the Control
When wiring the Bird Scale Control it is recommended that the line voltage wires be
brought into the bottom of the Control Box and the low voltage wires (Wires to the
Load Cell) be brought in the side of the Control Box (See Figure below). When
routing the Twisted Pair Wire be sure to keep it a minimum of 12"(305mm) away
from line voltage wiring. If there is a need for the Twisted Pair Wire to cross line
voltage wires cross them at a 90° angle to each other as shown.
