9300 Installation Manual
About This Manual
This manual is intended for use by service technicians
responsible for installing and servicing 9300 digital
weight indicators. This manual applies to indicators
using Version 1.1 of the 9300 software. See
Section 7.10 on page 44 for a summary of software
changes included in this release.
Configuration and calibration of the indicator can be
accomplished using the indicator front panel keys, the
EDP command set, or Version 2.5 or later of the
Revolution™ configuration utility. See Section 3.1 on
page 12 for information about configuration methods.
1.0
Warning
Some procedures described in this
manual require work inside the
indicator enclosure. These procedures
are to be performed by qualified
service personnel only.
The Operator Card included with this manual
provides basic operating instructions for users of the
9300. Please leave the Operator Card with the
indicator when installation and configuration are
complete.
Introduction
The 9300 is a single-channel digital weight indicator
housed in a NEMA 4X/IP66-rated stainless steel
enclosure. The indicator front panel consists of a large
(.8 in, 20 mm), six-digit, seven-segment LED display
and five-button keypad. Features include:
• Drives up to eight 350Ω or sixteen 700Ω load
cells
• Supports 4- and 6-wire load cell connections
• Two configurable digital inputs
• Electronic data processing (EDP) port for full
duplex, RS-232 communications at up to
9600 bps
• Printer port for output-only RS-232 and 20
mA current loop communications at up to
9600 bps
• Optional analog output module provides 0–10
VDC or 4–20 mA tracking of gross or net
weight values
• Available in 115 VAC and 230 VAC versions
The 9300 is NTEP-certified for Classes III and III L at
10,000 divisions. See Section 7.11 on page 45 for
detailed specifications.
1.1
Operating Modes
The 9300 has three modes of operation:
Normal (weighing) mode
Normal mode is the “production” mode of the
indicator. The indicator displays gross or net
weights as required, using the LED annunciators
described in Section 1.3 on page 2 to indicate
scale status and the type of weight value
displayed. Once configuration is complete and a
legal seal is affixed to the back of the indicator,
this is the only mode in which the 9300 can
operate.
Setup mode
Most of the procedures described in this manual
require the indicator to be in setup mode,
including configuration and calibration.
To enter setup mode, remove the large fillister
head screw from the enclosure backplate. Insert a
screwdriver or a similar tool into the access hole
and press the setup switch once. The indicator
display changes to show the word CONFIG.
Test mode
Test mode provides a number of diagnostic
functions for the 9300 indicator. Like setup mode,
test mode is entered using the setup switch. See
Section 7.9 on page 43 for more information
about entering and using test mode.

LED Annunciators
The 9300 display uses a set of eight LED annunciators to provide additional information about the value being
displayed:
• Gross and Net annunciators are lit to show whether the displayed weight is a gross or net weight.
• Center of zero (
scale is zeroed.
): Gross weight is within 0.25 graduations of zero. This annunciator lights when the
• Standstill (
): Scale is at standstill or within the specified motion band. Some operations, including
tare functions and printing, can only be done when the standstill symbol is shown.
• lb, kg, oz, and g annunciators indicate the units associated with the displayed value: lb=pounds,
kg=kilograms, oz=ounces, g=grams.
The displayed units can also be set to short tons (tn), metric tons (t), or NONE (no units information
displayed). The lb and kg LEDs function as primary and secondary units annunciators for some
combinations of primary and secondary units. If neither primary nor secondary units are lb, kg, oz, or g, the
lb annunciator is lit for primary units, kg for secondary units.
2
9300 Installation Manual
Table 1-1 shows which annunciators are used for all combinations of configured primary and secondary units.
For example:
• If the primary unit is pounds (lb) and the secondary unit is kilograms (kg), the lb LED is lit for primary
units, kg for secondary units.
• If the primary unit is pounds (lb) and the secondary unit is short tons (tn), the lb LED is lit for primary
units, kg for secondary units. There is no LED for short tons, so the kg LED is used as the secondary
units annunciator.
• If the primary unit is short tons (tn) and the secondary unit is pounds (lb), the lb LED is lit for primary
units (tn), and kg is lit for secondary units (lb). Because there is no LED for short tons, the lb and kg
LEDs are used as primary and secondary units annunciators.
See Section 3.2.2 for more information about configuring primary and secondary display units.

The supply cord serves as the power disconnect for
the 9300. The power outlet supplying the indicator
must be installed near the unit and be easily
accessible
Unpacking and Assembly
Immediately after unpacking, visually inspect the
9300 to ensure all components are included and
undamaged. The shipping carton should contain the
indicator with attached tilt stand, this manual, and a
parts kit. If any parts were damaged in shipment,
notify Interface, Inc. and the shipper immediately.
The parts kit contains the items listed below:
• Capacity, identification, and annunciator
labels. Annunciator labels (PN 53374)
provide replacement overlay decals for
labeling primary and secondary units LEDs.
• 6-position screw terminal (PN 66269) for
connector J1 and a 7-position screw terminal
(PN 42104) for connector J4 (see Figure 2-3
on page 5).
• Two 8-32NC x 7/16 fillister head screws (PN
30623). These screws occupy the holes below
and on either side of the setup screw on the
indicator backplate (see Figure 2-5 on page
7).
• Four 8-32NC x 3/8 machine screws (PN
14862) for the indicator backplate (see #24 in
Figure 2-6 on page 9).
• Six neoprene washers (PN 45042) for
backplate screws included in the parts kit.
• Four rubber bumpers (“feet”) for the tilt stand,
PN 42149.
• Five cable ties, PN 15631.
•

grounding against the backplate.
Enclosure Disassembly
The indicator enclosure must be opened to connect
cables for load cells, communications, digital inputs,
and analog output.
Warning
The 9300 has no on/off switch. Before
opening the unit, ensure the power cord
is disconnected from the power outlet.
Ensure power to the indicator is disconnected, then
place the indicator face-down on an antistatic work
mat. Remove the screws that hold the backplate to the
enclosure body, then lift the backplate away from the
enclosure and set it aside.
2.3
Cable Connections
The 9300 provides four cord grips for cabling into the
i n d i c a t o r : o n e f o r t h e p ow e r c o r d , t h r e e t o
accommodate load cell, communications, digital
inputs, and analog output cables. Two of the three free
cord grips come with a plug installed to prevent
moisture from entering the enclosure. Depending on
your application, remove the plug from any cord grip
that will be used and install cables as required.
NOTE: Because the 9300 has no on/off switch, the
power cord serves as the power disconnect. The power
outlet must be located close enough to the indicator to
allow the operator to easily disconnect power to the
unit.
Figure 2-1 shows the recommended assignments for
the 9300 cord grips.

2.3.1
Except for the power cord, all cables routed through
the cord grips should be grounded against the
indicator backplate. Do the following to ground
shielded cables:
• Use the lockwashers, clamps, and kep nuts
provided in the parts kit to install grounding
clamps on the backplate studs adjacent to cord
grips. Install grounding clamps only for cord
grips that will be used; do not tighten nuts.
• Route cables through cord grips and grounding
clamps to determine cable lengths required to
reach cable connectors. Mark cables to remove
insulation and shield as described below:
• For cables with foil shielding, strip insulation
and foil from the cable half an inch (15 mm)
past the grounding clamp (see Figure 2-2).
Fold the foil shield back on the cable where
the cable passes through the clamp. Ensure
silver (conductive) side of foil is turned
outward for contact with the grounding
clamp.
• For cables with braided shielding, strip cable
insulation and braided shield from a point just
past the grounding clamp. Strip another half
inch (15 mm) of insulation only to expose the
braid where the cable passes through the
clamp (see Figure 2-2).

2.3.2
Load Cells
To attach cable from a load cell or junction box,
remove connector J1 from the board. The connector
plugs into a header on the board as shown in
Figure 2-7 on page 10.
NOTE: Early versions of the 9300 CPU board used a
7-pin load cell connector. The 7-pin connector is not
compatible with the current 6-pin header.
Wire the load cell cable from the load cell or junction
box to connector J1 as shown in Table 2-1. If using
6-wire load cell cable (with sense wires), remove
jumpers JP1 and JP2 before reinstalling connector J1
(see Figure 2-3). For 4-wire installation, leave
jumpers JP1 and JP2 on.
When connections are complete, reinstall connector
J1 onto the header so that it snaps securely into place.
Use two cable ties to secure the load cell cable to the
inside of the enclosure.

2. If the +EXC measurements are ≥ 5% larger
than the –EXC measurements, set the
compensation jumper in the ON position. If
the +EXC measurements are < 5% greater (or
are less) than the –EXC measurements, set the
jumper in the OFF position.
2.3.3
Serial Communications and Digital Inputs
To attach serial communications and digital input
cables, remove connector J4 from the board.
Connector J4 provides connections for the EDP
(Electronic Data Processing) port, printer port, and
two digital inputs. Connect communications and
digital input cables to connector J4 as shown in
Table 2-2.
Once cables are attached, reconnect J4 to the header
on the board (see Figure 2-7 on page 10). Use cable
ties to secure serial and digital input cables to the
inside of the enclosure.
The EDP port supports RS-232 communications only;
the printer port provides either active 20 mA output or
RS-232 transmission. Both ports are configured using
the SERIAL menu. See Section 3.0 on page 12 for
configuration information.
Digital inputs can be set to provide several indicator
functions, including all keypad functions. The inputs
are active (on) with low voltage (0 VDC) and can be
driven by TTL or 5V logic without additional
hardware. Use the DIG IN menu to configure the
digital inputs.
Port
EDP Port
Setting the Load Cell Compensation Jumper
The load cell compensation jumper (above the A/D
converter location on the CPU board; see Figure 2-3
on page 5) must be set ON for load cells with
unbalanced bridges. The compensation jumper has the
effect of lowering the positive excitation voltage.
Uncompensated unbalanced load cells can cause
instability or calibration errors.
For RL1040 and RL1042 load cells, set the
compensation jumper as follows:
•
•
RL1040 load cells: jumper OFF
RL1042 load cells: jumper ON
For other load cell types, use the following procedure
to determine the correct jumper position;
1. Disconnect load cell from indicator and use
an ohmmeter to measure the following:
• +EXC to +SIG, +EXC to –SIG
• –EXC to +SIG, –EXC to –SIG
Measured values between the excitation line
and each of the signal lines should be within
2–3Ω.

Configuration
To configure the 9300 indicator, the indicator must be
placed in setup mode. The setup switch is accessed by
removing the large fillister head screw on the
enclosure backplate. Switch position is changed by
inserting a screwdriver into the access hole and
pressing the switch.
When the indicator is placed in setup mode, the word
CONFIG is shown on the display. The CONFIG menu
is the first of nine main menus used to configure the
indicator. Detailed descriptions of these menus are
given in Section 3.2. When configuration is complete,
return to the CONFIG menu and press the (ZERO)
key to exit setup mode, then replace the setup switch
access screw.
The 9300 indicator can be configured by using the
front panel keys to navigate through a series of
configuration menus or by sending commands or
configuration data to the EDP port. Configuration
using the menus is described in Section 3.1.3.
C o n fi g u r a t i o n u s i n g t h e E D P p o r t c a n b e
accomplished using either the EDP command set
described in Section 5.0 or Version 2.5 or later of the
Revolution™ configuration utility.
Revolution supports both uploading and downloading
of indicator configuration data. This capability allows
configuration data to be retrieved from one indicator,
edited, then downloaded to another.
To use Revolution, do the following:
1. Install Revolution on an IBM-compatible
personal computer running Windows® 3.11 or
Windows 95. Minimum system requirements
are 4MB of extended memory and at least
5MB of available hard disk space.
2. With both indicator and PC powered off,
connect the PC serial port to the RS-232 pins
on the indicator EDP port.
3. Power up the PC and the indicator. Use the
setup switch to place the indicator in setup
mode.
4. Start the Revolution program.
Figure 3-1 shows an example of one of the Revolution
configuration displays.
Revolution provides online help for each of its
configuration displays. Parameter descriptions
provided in this manual for front panel configuration
can also be used when configuring the indicator using
Revolution: the interface is different, but the
parameters set are the same.

Configuration Methods
Revolution Configuration
The Revolution configuration utility provides the
preferred method for configuring the 9300 indicator.
Revolution runs on a personal computer to set
configuration parameters for the indicator. When
Revolution configuration is complete, configuration
data is downloaded to the indicator.

9300 Installation Manual
EDP Command Configuration
The EDP command set can be used to configure the
9300 indicator using a personal computer, terminal, or
remote keyboard. Like Revolution, EDP command
configuration sends commands to the indicator EDP
port; unlike Revolution, EDP commands can be sent
using any external device capable of sending ASCII
characters over a serial connection.
EDP commands duplicate the functions available
using the indicator front panel and provide some
functions not otherwise available. EDP commands can
be used to simulate pressing front panel keys, to
configure the indicator, or to dump lists of parameter
settings. See Section 5.0 on page 27 for more
information about using the EDP command set.

More About Calibration
4.4.3
Calculating the Span Coefficient
The following topics provide additional information
about compensating for environmental factors
(Section 4.4.1) and diagnostic information for
determining expected zero and span coefficients.
The span coefficient value displayed by the WSPAN
parameter can be calculated using the following
formula:
4.4.1
where mV_signal_input is the change in the signal
input when the test weight is applied and the
zero_coefficient is the WZERO value. Actual values
typically vary from the calculated value.
Adjusting Final Calibration
Calibration may be affected by environmental factors
including wind, vibration, and angular loading. For
example, if the scale is calibrated with 1000 lb, a
strain test may determine that at 2000 lb the
calibration is 3 lb high. In this case, final calibration
can be adjusted by tweaking WVAL to 998.5 lb. This
adjustment provides a linear correction of 1.5 lb per
1000 lb.
To adjust the final calibration, return to the WVAL
prompt and press to show the test weight value.
Press or to adjust calibration up or down. Press
to save the value, then press
to return to the
CALIBR menu.
4.4.2
Zero Deadload A/D Counts
Table 4-1 lists the ideal A/D counts that result from
input signals of 0–45 mV with zero deadload. Actual
values will typically be higher than the values shown
in Table 4-1 but the ideal values can be used when
calibrating the indicator with no attached scale.

EDP Commands
The 9300 indicator can be controlled by a personal
computer or remote keyboard connected to the
indicator EDP port. Control is provided by a set of
EDP commands that can simulate front panel key
press functions, display and change setup parameters,
and perform reporting functions. The EDP port
provides the capability to print configuration data or to
save that data to an attached personal computer. This
section describes the EDP command set and
procedures for saving and transferring data using the
EDP port.
5.1
The EDP Command Set
The EDP command set can be divided into five
groups: key press commands, reporting commands,
the RESETCONFIGURATION special function
command, parameter setting commands, and transmit
weight data commands.
When the indicator processes an EDP command, it
responds with the message OK . The OK response
verifies that the command was received and has been
executed. If the command is unrecognized or cannot
be executed, the indicator responds with ??.
The following sections list the commands and
command syntax used for each of these groups.
5.1.1
Key Press Commands
Key press EDP commands (see Table 5-1) simulate
pressing the keys on the front panel of the indicator.
Most commands can be used in both setup and
weighing mode. Several of the commands serve as
“pseudo” keys, providing functions that are not
represented by a key on the front panel.
For example, to enter a 15-pound tare weight using
EDP commands:
1. Type K1 and press ENTER (or RETURN).
2. Type K5 and press ENTER.
3. Type KTARE and press ENTER. The display
shifts to net mode when the tare is entered.

Parameter Setting Commands
Parameter setting commands allow you to display or
change the current value for a particular configuration
parameter (Tables 5-3 through 5-10).
Current configuration parameter settings can be
displayed in either setup mode or normal mode using
the following syntax:
DUMPALL
List all parameter values
VERSION
Write 9300 software version
P
Write current displayed weight with units
identifier. See Section 7.2 on page 35 for
more information.
Most parameter values can be changed in setup mode
only. Use the following command syntax when
changing parameter values:
ZZ
Write current weight and annunciator
status. See Section 7.2 on page 35 for
more information.

The RESETCONFIGURATION Command
The RESETCONFIGURATION command can be
used to restore all configuration parameters to their
default values. Before issuing this command, the
indicator must be placed in test mode (press and hold
setup switch for approximately three seconds to show
TEST menu).
This command is equivalent to using the DEFLT
function on the TEST menu. See Section 7.9 on
page 43 for more information about test mode and
using the TEST menu. NOTE: All load cell calibration
settings are lost when the RESETCONFIGURATION
command is run.
Command

spaces before or after the equal (=) sign. If you type an
incorrect command or value, the display reads ?? .
Changes to the parameters are saved as they are
entered but typically do not take effect until you exit
setup mode.

5.2
Saving and Transferring Data
Connecting a personal computer to the 9300 EDP port
allows you to save indicator configuration data to the
PC or to download configuration data from the PC to
an indicator. The following sections describe the
procedures for these save and transfer operations.
5.2.1
Saving Indicator Data to a Personal Computer
Configuration data can be saved to a personal
computer connected to the EDP port. The PC must be
running a communications program such as
PROCOMMPLUS®. See Section 2.3.3 on page 6 for
information about serial communications wiring and
EDP port pin assignments.
When configuring the indicator, ensure that the values
set for the BAUD and BITS parameters on the
SERIAL menu match the baud rate, bits, and parity
settings configured for the serial port on the PC. Set
the PRNDES parameter to EDP.
To save all configuration data, place the indicator in
setup mode and send the DUMPALL EDP command
to the indicator. The 9300 responds by sending all
c o n fi g u r a t i o n p a r a m e t e r s t o t h e P C a s
ASCII-formatted text.
5.2.2
Downloading Configuration Data from PC to
Indicator
Configuration data saved on a PC or floppy disk can
be downloaded from the PC to an indicator. This
procedure is useful when a number of indicators with
similar configurations are set up or when an indicator
is replaced.
To download configuration data, connect the PC to the
EDP port as described in Section 5.2.1. Place the
indicator in setup mode and use the PC
c o m m u n i c a t i o n s s o f t wa r e t o s e n d t h e s ave d
configuration data to the indicator. When transfer is
complete, calibrate the indicator as described in
Section 4.0 on page 24.
NOTES:
•
•
Calibration settings are included in the
c o n fi g u r a t i o n d a t a d ow n l o a d e d t o t h e
indicator. If the receiving indicator is a direct
replacement for another 9300 and the attached
scale is not changed, recalibration is not
required.
When downloading configurations that
include changed serial communications
settings, edit the data file to place the serial
communications changes at the end of the file.
Communication between the PC and indicator
will be lost once the indicator receives
settings for baud rate (BAUD parameter) or
data bits and parity (BITS parameter) that do
not match those configured for the PC.
EDP Commands
31
6.0
Print Formatting
The 9300 provides two print formats, GFMT and
NFMT, that determine the format of the printed output
when the PRINT key is pressed or when a KPRINT
EDP command is received. If a tare has been entered
or acquired, NFMT is used; otherwise, GFMT is used.
Each print format can be customized to include up to
300 characters of information, such as company name
and address, on printed tickets. You can use the
indicator front panel (PFORMT menu), EDP
commands, or the Revolution™ configuration utility to
customize the print formats.
6.1
Print Formatting Commands
Table 6-1 lists commands you can use to format the
gross and net print formats. Commands included in
the format strings must be enclosed between < and >
delimiters. Any characters outside of the delimiters
are printed as text on the ticket. Text characters can
include any ASCII character that can be printed by the
output device.
Command
The default GFMT and NFMT print formats use only
the new line (<NL>) command and the commands for
gross, net, and tare weights in displayed units (<G>,
<N>, and <T>).
The default 9300 print formats are shown in
Table 6-2:
Format
Gross weight in displayed units
<G2>
Gross weight in non-displayed units
<N>
Net weight in displayed units
<N2>
Net weight in non-displayed units
<T>
Tare weight in displayed units
<T2>
Tare weight in non-displayed units
<ID>

<CN>
Consecutive number
<NLnn>
New line (nn = number of termination (<CR/LF>
or <CR>) characters)*
<SPnn>
Space (nn = number of spaces)*
<SU>
Toggle weight data format (formatted/
unformatted)**
Gross, net, and tare weights are 9 digits in length, including
sign (10 digits with decimal point), followed by a space and
a two-digit units identifier. Total field length with units
identifier is 12 (or 13) characters.
ID and consecutive number (CN) fields are 1–6 characters in
length, as required.
* If nn is not specified, 1 is assumed. Value must be in the
range 1–99.
** After receiving an SU command, the indicator sends
unformatted data until the next SU command is received.
Unformatted data omits decimal points, leading and trailing
characters.

NOTE: In OIML and CANADA modes, the letters PT (preset
tare) are automatically inserted after the printed tare weight.
Table 6-2. GFMT and NFMT Formats
NOTES:
•
•
•
6.2
The <G2>, <N2>, and <T2> commands listed
in Table 6-1 print the gross, net, and tare
weights in non-displayed units—that is, in the
units not currently displayed on the indicator.
ID numbers included in the print format string
(<ID> command) must be set using the
KNEWID EDP command.
The 300-character limit of each print format
string includes the output field length of the
print formatting commands, not the command
length. For example, if the indicator is
configured to show a decimal point, the <G>
command generates an output field of 13
characters: the 10-character weight value
(including decimal point), one space, and a
two-digit units identifier.
Customizing Print Formats
The following sections describe procedures for
customizing the GFMT and NFMT formats using the
EDP port, the front panel (PFORMT menu), and the
Revolution configuration utility.
6.2.1
Using the EDP Port
With a personal computer, terminal, or remote
keyboard attached to the 9300 EDP port, you can use
the EDP command set to customize the print format
strings.
To view the current setting of a format string, type the
name of the string (GFMT or NFMT) and press
ENTER. For example, to check the current
configuration of the GFMT format, type GFMT and
press ENTER. The indicator responds by sending the
current configuration for the gross format:
GFMT=<G> GROSS<NL>
32
9300 Installation Manual

Description
<G>
Default Format String
To change the format, use the GFMT or NFMT EDP
command followed by an equals sign (=) and the
modified print format string. For example, to add the
name and address of a company to the gross format,
you could send the following EDP command:
GFMT=FINE TRANSFER CO<NL>32400 WEST
HIGHWAY ROAD<NL>SMALLTOWN<NL2><G>
GROSS<NL>
A ticket printed using this format might look like the
following:

6.2.2
Using the Front Panel
If you have no access to equipment for
communication through the EDP port or are working
at a site where such equipment cannot be used, you
can use the PFORMT menu (see Figure 6-1) to
customize the print formats.
Using the PFORMT menu, you can edit the print
format strings by changing the decimal values of the
ASCII characters in the format string.
NOTE: Lower-case letters and some special characters
cannot be displayed on the 9300 front panel (see the
ASCII character chart on page 37) and are shown as
blanks. The 9300 can send or receive any ASCII
character; the character printed depends on the
particular ASCII character set implemented for the
receiving device.

Using Revolution
The Revolution configuration utility provides a print
formatting grid with a tool bar. The grid allows you to
construct the print format without the formatting
commands (<NL> and <SP>) required by the front
panel or EDP command methods. Using Revolution,
you can type text directly into the grid, then select
weight value fields from the tool bar and place them
where you want them to appear on the printed ticket.

9300 Installation Manual
7.1.2
Using the XE EDP Command
The XE EDP command can be used to remotely query
the 9300 for the error conditions shown on the front
panel. The XE command returns two 5-digit numbers
in the format:
xxxxx yyyyy
where xxxxx contains
a decimal representation of any
existing error conditions as described in Table 7-2.
If more than one error condition exists, the number
returned is the sum of the values representing the error
conditions. For example, if the XE command returns
the number 1040, this value represents the sum of an
A/D reference error (1024) and an A/D calibration
checksum error (16).
The second number returned (yyyyy) uses the same bit
assignments as shown in Table 7-2 to indicate whether
the test for the error condition was run. For example,
the value yyyyy = 50815 represents the decimal
equivalent of the binary value 1100 0110 0111 1111.
Using the bit assignments in Table 7-2, this value
indicates all tests were run.

Status Messages
Two EDP commands, P and ZZ, can be used to
provide status about the indicator. These commands
are described in the following sections.
7.2.1
Using the P EDP Command
The P EDP command returns the current displayed
weight value to the EDP port, along with the units
identifier. If the indicator is in an underrange or
overload condition, the weight value is replaced with
&&&&&& (overload) or :::::: (underrange).
7.2.2
Using the ZZ EDP Command
The ZZ EDP command can be used to remotely query
which annunciators are currently displayed on the
indicator front panel. The ZZ command returns the
currently displayed weight and a decimal number
representing the LED annunciators currently lit. The
format of the returned data is:
wwwwww uu
zzz
where wwwwww uu is the current displayed weight and
units, zzz is the annunciator status value (see
Table 7-3). If more than one annunciator is lit, the
second number returned is the sum of the values
representing the active annunciators.
For example, if the annunciator status value returned
on the ZZ command is 145, the gross, standstill, and
lb annunciators are lit: 145 represents the sum of the
values for the standstill annunciator (128), gross mode
annunciator (16), and the lb/primary units annunciator
(1).

used by the output device.
The 9300 can send or receive any ASCII character
value (decimal 0–255), but the indicator display is
limited to numbers, upper-case, unaccented letters,
and a few special characters. See Section 7.5 on
page 39 for information about the 9300 LED display.

7.6
Conversion Factors for Secondary
Units
The 9300 has the capability to mathematically convert
a weight into many different types of units and
instantly display those results with a press of the
UNITS key.
Secondary units can be specified on the FORMAT
menu using the SECNDR parameter, or by using EDP
commands.
• To configure secondary units using the front
panel menus, use the Table 7-6 to find the
c o nv e r s i o n m u l t i p l i e r f o r t h e M U LT
parameter. For example, if the primary unit is
pounds and the secondary unit is short tons,
set the MULT parameter to 0.000500.
You must use the MULEXP parameter to set
the decimal point position. For example, if the
primary unit is ounces and the secondary unit
is grams, the conversion factor shown in
Table 7-6 is 28.3495. To enter this value using
the menus, first enter 283495 for the MULT
parameter, then use the MULEXP parameter
to adjust the decimal point to 28.3495.
• To configure secondary units using EDP
commands, use the Table 7-6 to find the
conversion multiplier for the SEC.MULT
command. For example, if the primary unit is
pounds and the secondary unit is short tons,
s e n d t h e E D P c o m m a n d S E C . M U LT =
0.0005<CR> to set the multiplier for the
secondary units.
• Long tons and grains units listed in Table 7-6
cannot be directly specified as primary or
secondary units on the 9300 indicator. For
these or other unlisted units of weight, specify
NONE on the UNITS parameter.
NOTE: Ensure that the secondary decimal point
position is set appropriately for the scale capacity in
the secondary units. If the converted value requires
more digits than are available, the indicator will
display an overflow message (OVERFL).
For example, if the primary units are short tons,
secondary units are pounds, and the secondary
decimal point is set to 8888.88, the indicator will
overflow if 5 tons or more are applied to the scale.
With 5 tons applied, and a conversion factor of 2000,
the secondary units display needs five digits to the left
of the decimal point to display the 10000 lb secondary
units value.

Digital Filtering
The 9300 uses averaged digital filtering to reduce the effect of vibration on weight readings. Adjustable threshold
and sensitivity functions allow quick settling by suspending filter averaging, allowing the weight reading to jump
to the new value. Figure 7-3 shows the digital filter parameters on the CONFIG menu.

7.7.1
DIGFLx Parameters
The first three digital filtering parameters, DIGFL1,
DIGFL2, and DIGFL3, are configurable filter stages
that control the effect of a single A/D reading on the
displayed weight. The value assigned to each
parameter sets the number of readings received from
the preceding filter stage before averaging (see
Figure 7-4).
The overall filtering effect can be expressed by
multiplying the values assigned to the three filter
stages:
DIGFL1 x DIGFL2 x DIGFL3
Fo r ex a m p l e , i f t h e fi l t e r s a r e c o n fi g u r e d a s
DIGFL1=4, DIGFL2=8, DIGFL3=8, the overall
fi l t e r i n g e ff e c t i s 2 5 6 ( 4 x 8 x 8 ) . Wi t h t h i s
configuration, each A/D reading has a 1-in-256 effect
on the displayed weight value. Setting the filters to 1
effectively disables digital filtering (1 x 1 x 1 = 1).
7.7.2
DFSENS and DFTHRH Parameters
The three digital filters can be used by themselves to
eliminate vibration effects, but heavy filtering also
increases settling time. The DFSENS (digital filter
sensitivity) and DFTHRH (digital filter threshold)
parameters can be used to temporarily override filter
averaging and improve settling time:
• DFSENS specifies the number of consecutive
scale readings that must fall outside the filter
threshold (DFTHRH) before digital filtering
is suspended.
• DFTHRH sets a threshold value, in display
divisions. When a specified number of
consecutive scale readings (DFSENS) fall
outside of this threshold, digital filtering is
suspended. Set DFTHRH to NONE to turn off
the filter override.
Appendix
41
7.7.3
Setting the Digital Filter Parameters
vibration effects on the scale. (Leave
DFTHRH set to NONE.) Reconfigure as
necessary to find the lowest effective values
for the DIGFLx parameters.
4. With optimum values assigned to the DIGFLx
parameters, calculate the DFTHRH parameter
value by converting the weight value recorded
in Step 2 to display divisions:
Fine-tuning the digital filter parameters greatly
improves indicator performance in heavy-vibration
environments. Use the following procedure to
determine vibration effects on the scale and optimize
the digital filtering configuration.
1. In setup mode, set all three digital filters
(DIGFL1, DIGFL2, DIGFL3) to 1. Set
DFTHRH to NONE. Return indicator to
normal mode.
2. Remove all weight from the scale, then watch
the indicator display to determine the
magnitude of vibration effects on the scale.
Record the weight below which all but a few
readings fall. This value is used to calculate
the DFTHRH parameter value in Step 4.
For example, if a heavy-capacity scale
produces vibration-related readings of up to
50 lb, with occasional spikes to 75 lb, record
50 lb as the threshold weight value.
3. Place the indicator in setup mode and set the
digital filters (DIGFLx) to eliminate the
7.8
threshold_weight_value / DSPDIV
In the example in Step 2, with a threshold
weight value of 50 lb and a display division
value of 5D: 50 / 5D = 10. DFTHRH should
be set to 10DD for this example.
5. Finally, set the DFSENS parameter high
enough to ignore transient peaks. Longer
transients (typically caused by lower vibration
frequencies) will cause more consecutive
out-of-band readings, so DFSENS should be
set higher to counter low frequency transients.
Reconfigure as necessary to find the lowest
effective value for the DFSENS parameter.
Analog Output Calibration
NOTE: The analog output must be calibrated after the
indicator itself has been configured (Section 3.0) and
calibrated (Section 4.0).
The following calibration procedure requires a
multimeter to measure voltage or current output from
the analog output module. If the option is not already
installed, see Section 2.4 on page 7.

Test Mode
In addition to normal and setup modes, test mode
provides a number of diagnostic functions for the
9300, including:
• Display raw A/D count
• Display digital input states
• Reset configuration parameters to default
values
• Transmit test character (“U”) from serial port
• Display characters received by serial port
• Set analog output state to zero or full scale
TEST
To enter test mode, press and hold the setup switch
until the front panel display shows the word TEST.
After about three seconds, the test mode display
automatically shifts to the first test menu function,
A/DTST.
