encoder can be used for speed measurement.
Follow instructions below to get accurate speed:
•
Note: Measurement must be in inches or centimeters.
•
Note: All load cell mV/V specifications are pre-programmed in
software. For custom, load cell capacity and mV/V must be
known.

If using Belt-Scale’s shaft mount encoder, measure pulley
diameter that encoder is mounted to.
If using third party encoder, enter pulses/revolution for that
encoder so scale can read and display speed correctly.
Note: If scales displayed belt speed is inaccurate and does not
match reading from tachometer, adjust scales displayed reading
to match. Pulses per revolution of encoder, and correct belt

Belt Length Calibration Options
Digital Calibration
Note: Various options are available when performing belt length
calibration.
Note: Digital calibration is a quick electronic calibration which
restores trim factor back to default of 1.000.
For options, refer to bullet point below:
•
Length and Zero: Measures length of belt while conducting
initial zero calibration while belt is empty and running. Scale
will know how long belt is in meters or feet, depending on
units selected during setup, once calibration is complete.
Scale will be zero calibrated.
•
Auto Belt Length: Performed while belt is running empty and
only measures length of belt. Follow steps below complete
calibration:

Note: For belts +/-50ft (15.24 meters) or less with speeds above
500 ft/min (152.40 meters/min), it is recommended to complete 3
to five revolutions instead of only 1. This will provide more
samples and better calibration. Same applies for belts in poor
condition or belts that have multiple splices and patches.

PID Control
Note: These settings are used to control feed devices. PID
control loop allows scale to speed up or slow down feed device in
order to keep with programmed flow rate crossing scale.
Note: PID control section is generic setup for other specific
functions (rate control, blending, etc.).
PID Channel
•
Default: 1
•
Selection Options: 1 or 2
Note: This analog output will control feed device.
PID Action
•
Note: Any of above listed output functions can be assigned to
any of three relay outputs.
•Reverse Action: Causes feed device to speed up when
actual flow rate drops below programmed flow rate, thus
increasing flow rate.
Note: All digital outputs except pulsed outputs are available as
relay outputs.
•Forward Action: Causes feed device to slow down when
actual rate is below programmed rate. Can be used to
control conveyor belt to keep consistent level of material on
belt.
Note: Relays can accept direct connection to a 100/240 VAC
input.
Note: Recommended to use low voltage solid state relays as
high voltage will decrease life span and burn relays out sooner,
depending on number of pulses, etc.
Analog Outputs
Note: Selection choices include 4-20 mA or 0-20 mA output.
Note: Analog output used by PLC system to monitor scale flow
rate (tons per hour etc.) or to automatically control material feed
device in blending, rate control, or load control applications if
configured to do so.
•
•
Analog 1 Function: Output Default, unassigned.
Note: PID Set-Point is programmed flow rate that scale attempts
to maintain when running PID control loop.
•
Default: Local Set-Point
•Local Set-Point: Must be manually entered into integrator.
•Remote Set-Point: Requires separate scale to automatically
update set-point value in Master-Slave configuration. See
blending section for more details.
•0-20 mA: 0 mA used when scale rate is 0 (Tph,Kg’s/Hr). 20
mA used when scale rate exceeds max rate value.
NOTICE
•4-20 mA: 4 mA used when scale rate is 0 (Tph, Kgs, Hr). 20
mA used when scale rate exceeds max rate value.
Use caution when changing values as they may result in
abnormal feeder behavior.
Analog 1 Set-Point: Default=100%
Note: Value should remain at 100% when output is monitored by
control system. Should be programmed to required value when
scale is used for blending.
20
PID Set-Point
P, I, D Terms
•Determines what portion of 4-20 mA output is sent to PLC
or feed device. 100% sends entire value, 50% sends half the
value, 10% sends one tenth the value, etc.
•
Default: Reverse Action
Note: Standard PID terms will work for most applications. PID
terms may be adjusted to fine tune feeder performance.
Load Out
Note: Load out setting stops feed device after predetermined
weight has crossed scale and is primarily used to automate truck
and rail car loading.
Analog 1 Max Rate: Establishes 20 mA level for analog
output. Default=500.

Note: 8 preset load weights can be programmed to
accommodate different size vehicles. Each load weight can be
accompanied by cutoff value. Cutoff value must match amount of
material that is left on conveyor after load is complete.
Note: Cutoff usually same for each load weight, but different
values can be used if multiple feeders are utilized in loading
process. Cutoff must be calculated by trial and error testing.
Note: Final target weight equals preset load weight minus set
cutoff value.
Note: Method can dramatically reduce scale’s expected margin
of error.
•
Target Load: Scale will attempt to keep same or consistent
amount of material on belt at all times. Must be in lbs/ft or
kgs/M.
•
Min. Belt Speed: Minimum expected belt speed of conveyor.
•
Pre-Load Distance: Distance from feed device to scale.
•
Empty Belt Speed: Expected belt speed of conveyor when
running empty.
Blending
Note: Blending automatically controls one or multiple feed
devices to create accurately blended mixture of materials.
Note: Master-Slave configuration utilized to have one scale send
its rate to other networked scales.
Plant Connect
Note: Plant connect is Internet based reporting system which
allows you to easily access and monitor production from PC,
smart-phone, or tablet.
Examples of blending include:
•
Mixing cement and water in batching plant.
•
Adding RAP to asphalt mixture.
•
Mixing several sizes of sand into final product.
Diagnostics
Current Setting: Belt-Scale is currently setup or calibrated.
Current Live Data: Measured reading typically relating to supply
or signal voltage or frequency to and from scale components and
secondary devices.
Blending function settings include:
•
Number of Slaves: Must be set in master scale only.
Determines how many scales are on network.
•
Ingredient %: Percentage of master scale that slave scale
needs to add to final mixture.
•
Feed Delay: Programmed in seconds. Delays feeder from
starting if it is long distance from scale.
•
Pre-Load Delay: Programmed in seconds. Delays slave
scale from responding to master scale’s rate. Feeder will run
lower “bias” rate until delay timer expires.
•
Feeder Capacity: Expected capacity of feed device.
Rate control
Note: Rate control allows scale to automatically adjust VFD
(variable frequency drive) for feeder to keep consistent flow rate
on scale at all times. Also possible to control vibratory feeders,
augers, conveyors and other material feed systems.
Rate control settings are as follows:
•
Target Rate: Rate scale is attempting to maintain.
•
Pre-Load Delay: Delays PID loop calculations if scale is long
distance away from feed device. Measured in seconds.
•
Load Control: Allows scale to automatically adjust conveyor
belt speed via variable frequency drive to keep consistent
belt load on scale at all times (lbs/ ft/ or kgs/ M.).
Note: Values can only be viewed, not edited.

Seller may require Buyer to return any product or part thereof which Buyer claims to be defective to Seller at Buyer’s cost for inspection as a condition to any claim under the
above limited warranty. No product or part may be returned to Seller without Seller’s prior written authorization. If a product which is returned is determined by Seller in its
sole discretion not to have failed to comply with the limited warranty, Buyer shall pay costs of removal, repair and/or replacement for such product. If a product which is
returned is determined by Seller in its sole discretion to have failed to comply with the limited warranty, Seller shall pay for all repair and/or replacement costs for such product
(or refund the purchase price if so elected by Seller) and Seller shall reimburse Buyer for the reasonable costs of shipping the product or component to Seller.
g. Limitation on Liability for Breach of Warranty and Other Claims. If the warranty and the remedy for any failure of any product to comply with any warranty
are deemed for any reason to fail their intended purpose, Seller’s liability for any failure of any product to comply with any such warranty, together with any and all other
liability, if any, arising out of or in connection with such product, including, but not limited to, all claims, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, arising out of, connected with, or
resulting from the manufacture, sale, delivery, resale, repair, replacement, or use of the product, shall not exceed the purchase price for such product. In no event shall Seller

has against Seller, whether or not Buyer is aware of such claims, must be brought by Buyer within thirty (30) days after the date that such claim first arose, but in any event
within the applicable warranty period set forth above. Any claim not brought by Buyer within the applicable thirty (30) day period shall be deemed null and void.
