SECTION 6 OPERATION
6.1 ZEROING THE DISPLAY
You can press the ZERO/ENTER key at any time to set the zero point from which all
other weighing and counting is measured, within 4% of power up zero. This will
usually only be necessary when the platform is empty. When the zero point is
obtained the display will show the indicator for zero.
The scale has an automatic rezeroing function to account for minor drifting or
accumulation of material on the platform. However you may need to press the
ZERO/ENTER key to rezero the scale if small amounts of weight are shown when the
platform is empty.
6.2 TARING
Zero the scale by pressing the ZERO/ENTER key if necessary. The zero indicator will
be on.
Place a container on the platform, a value for its weight will be displayed.
Press the TARE key to tare the scale. The weight that was displayed is stored as the
tare value and that value is subtracted from the display, leaving zero on the display.
The "TARE" indicator will be on. As product is added only the weight of the product
will be shown. The scale could be tared a second time if another type of product was
to be added to the first one. Again only the weight that is added after taring will be
displayed.
When the container is removed a negative value will be shown. If the scale was tared
just before removing the container this value is the gross weight of the container plus
all product that was removed. The zero indicator will also be on because the platform
is back to the same condition it was when the ZERO/ENTER key was last pressed.
6.3 WEIGHING A SAMPLE
To determine the weight of a sample first tare the empty container then place the
sample in the container. The display will show the weight and the units of weight
currently in use.
6.4 PERCENT WEIGHING
The scale will allow a sample weight to be shown as 100%. Then any other weight
placed on the scale will be displayed as a percentage of the original sample. For
example is 350g is placed on the scale and the % key is pressed the display will
show 100.00%.
Removing the 350g weight and putting a 300g weight on the scale the display will
show 85.71% as 300g is 85.71% of 350g.
Note: the scale may jump by large numbers unexpectedly if small weights are used to
set the 100% level.
For example if only 23.5g is on a scale with 0.5g increments
and the scale is set to 100%, the display will show 100.00%, however a small change
-6-
QHW digital weighing scales user’s guide
of weight will cause the display to jump to 102.13% as one scale division (0.5g)
increase to 24.0g will be equivalent to a 2.13% increase.
Removing the 350g weight and putting a 300g weight on the scale the display will
show 85.71% as 300g is 85.71% of 350g.
Pressing the FUNC key will return the scale to weighing.
6.5 PARTS COUNTING
When the scale is showing weight,
counting function.
pressing the FUNC key will start the parts
Before beginning, tare the weight of any container that will be used, leaving the
empty container on the scale. Place the number of samples on the scale. The
number should match the options for parts counting, 10, 20, 50, 100 or 200 pieces.
Press the FUNC key to begin. The scale will show "SP 10" asking for a sample
size of 10 parts. Change the sample size by pressing the TARE/Ï key. the display
will cycle through the options: 10,20, 50, 100, 200 and back to 10.
Press the ZERO/ENTER key when the number matches the number of parts used for
the sample. As more weight is added the display will show the number of parts
(pcs).
Press the % key to display unit weight (g/pcs), Total weight (kg) or the count (pcs).
Press the FUNC key to return to normal weighing.
6.6 CHECK-WEIGHING
Check-weighing is a procedure to cause an alarm to sound when the weight on
the scale meets or exceeds values stored in memory. The memory holds values
for a high limit and a low limit. Either limit can be used or both can be used.
Press the LIMIT key. The display will show the current High Limit with the left most
digit flashing and the HI symbol on to the left of the display..
To change the value shown use the %/Í and the LIMIT/Î to select the digit to
change. Then use the TARE/Ï key to increment the flashing digit. When the
desired value is shown press the ZERO/ENTER key to accept the value. If you
want to reset the value to zero press the FUNC/C key to clear the value.
After pressing the ZERO/ENTER key the display will then show the Low Limit, the LO
symbol will be on to the left side of the display.
Enter the low limit in the same way the high limit was entered.
After pressing the ZERO/ENTER key the scale will return to weighing with the
Check-weighing function enabled.
When a weight is placed on the scale the arrows will show if the weight is above or
below the limits and the beeper will sound as described below.
-7-
QHW digital weighing scales user’s guide
BOTH LIMITS SET
The display will show OK and the beeper will sound when the weight is
between the limits.
LOW LIMIT SET,
HIGH LIMIT is set to zero
The display will show OK and the beeper will sound when the weight is
less than the Low Limit. Above the Low Limit the display will show
HIGH and the beeper will be off.
HIGH LIMIT SET,
LOW LIMIT is set to zero
The display will show LOW and the beeper will be off when the weight
is less than the High Limit. Above the High Limit the display will show
OK and the beeper will be on.
BOTH LIMITS SET.
LOW IS SET GREATER THAN HIGH
The beeper will never sound and the display will show LOW if the
weight is less that the LOW limit, and HIGH if the weight is greater than
the Low Limit.
NOTE: The weight must be greater than 20 scale divisions for the check weighing to
operate.
To disable the Check-Weighing function enter zero into both limits by pressing the
FUNC/C key when the current limits are shown then pressing the ZERO/ENTER key
to store the zero values.
6.7 ACCUMULATED TOTAL
The scale can be set to accumulate automatically when a weight is added to he scale
or manually by pressing the PRINT key.
See the PARAMETERS Section for
details of selecting the method. The accumulation function is only available when
weighing. It is disabled during percent weighing or parts counting.
6.8 MANUAL ACCUMULATION
When the scale is set to manual accumulation the weight displayed will be stored in
memory when the PRINT key is pressed and the weight is stable.
The display will show "ACC 1" and then the total in memory for 2 seconds before
returning to normal. If the optional RS-232 interface is installed the weight will be
output to a printer or PC.
Remove the weight, allowing the scale to return to zero and put a second weight on.
Press PRINT, the display will show "ACC
2" and then show the new total.
Continue until all weights have been added.
To view the totals in memory press the PRINT key when the scale is at zero. The
display will show the total number of items "ACC xx" and the total weight before
returning to zero.
The totals will also be printed via the RS-232 interface.
To erase the memory press PRINT to view the totals and then press the FUNC/C key
to clear the memory.

QHW digital weighing scales user’s guide
6.9 AUTOMATIC ACCUMULATION
When the scale has been set to Automatic Accumulation the value is stored in
memory automatically.
Add a weight to the scale, the beeper will sound when the scale is stable to signify
the value is accepted. Remove the weight.
The display will show "ACC 1" and the totals in memory when the scale returns to
zero. Adding a second weight will repeat the process.
While the weight is on the scale it is permissible to press the PRINT key to store the
value immediately. In this case the scale will not store the value when the weight is
removed.
The totals can be viewed as above.
In all cases the scale must return to zero or a negative number before another
sample can be added to the memory.
More product can then be added and PRINT pressed again. This can continue for up
to 99 entries, or until the capacity weight display is exceeded.

SECTION 7 BATTERY OPERATION
The scales can be operated from the battery if desired. The battery life is
approximately 100 hours.
When the battery needs charging the arrow above the low battery symbol under the
weight display will turn on. The battery should be charged as soon as the arrow
above the symbol is on. The scale will still operate for about 10 hours after which it
will automatically switch off to protect the battery.
To charge the battery simply plug into the mains power. The scale does not need to
be turned on.
The battery should be charged for 12 hours for full capacity.
Just under the quantity display is an LED to indicate the status of battery charging.
When the scale is plugged into the mains power the internal battery will be charged.
If the LED is green the battery has a full charge. If it is Red the battery is nearly
discharged and yellow indicates the battery is being charged.
As the battery is used it may fail to hold a full charge. If the battery life becomes
unacceptable then contact your distributor .
