2. DESCRIPTION OF DEVICE
2.1 Congratulations!
With the seca 954 electronic scale, you have just
purchased a highly precise and simultaneously robust
weighing instrument.
seca has put its experience at the service of health care
for over 170 years and as a market leader in many
countries, is constantly setting new standards with its
innovative developments for weighing and measurement.
2.2 Intended use
The seca 954 electronic scale is mainly used at hospitals, medical practices and inpatient care facilities in
accordance with national regulations.
The scale is for conventional determination of weight
and establishment of general state of nutrition; it assists
the physician supervising treatment in making a diagnosis or deciding on a course of treatment.
To make an accurate diagnosis, however, other specific examinations have to be ordered by the physician
and their results taken into account in addition to determining a weight value.
Some versions of these scales allow you to switch the
weight display between kilos (kg), pounds (lbs) and
stones (sts). The result of weighing is available within a
few seconds.
Besides conventional weight measurement the
seca 954 also features a function to calculate the body
mass index. The keypad is used to enter the height,
and this is followed by automatic calculation of the
body mass index from the weighing value. Height
measuring instruments from the seca 360° wireless
system can transmit the body size wirelessly to the
seca 954.
Via the wireless network, seca 360° wireless measuring instruments can be connected wirelessly to a seca
wireless printer or to a PC equipped with
seca analytics PC software and the secaUSB wireless
adapter.
Description of device • 49
The seca 954 is provided with rollers to allow it to be
moved about and thanks to its low power consumption, it will offer hours of battery operation for mobile
applications.
The seca 954 is not intended for the transport of
people or objects. Use the scale only for the purpose
named in this section.

BMI
Evaluation
Under 18.5
The patient is underweight. There might be a tendency to
anorexia. It is advisable that the patient puts on weight to
improve well-being and performance. If in doubt, a medical
specialist should be consulted.
Between 18.5 and
24.9
The patient's weight is normal.
Between 25 and 30
(pre-obesity)
The patient is slightly to moderately overweight and should
lose weight if already suffering from disease (e.g. diabetes,
high blood pressure, gout, disorders of the fat metabolism).
Over 30
The patient urgently needs to lose weight as this is putting a
strain on the metabolism, circulation and skeleton. The recommendation is for careful adherence to a diet, plenty of
exercise and behavioural training. If in doubt, a medical specialist should be consulted.

7. SECA 360° WIRELESS NETWORK
7.1 Introduction
This device is equipped with a wireless module. The
wireless module allows measured results to be transmitted wirelessly for analysis and documentation. Data
can be transmitted to the following equipment devices:
• seca wireless printer
• PC with USB wireless module
seca wireless groups
The seca 360° wireless network operates with wireless
groups. A wireless group is a virtual group of transmitters and receivers. If you wish to operate several transmitters and receivers of the same type, up to 3 wireless
groups (0, 1, 2) can be set up with this device.
The set-up of several wireless groups ensures the reliable transmission of measured values with the correct
address when using more than one examination room
each with similar equipment.
0
1
The maximum distance between transmitters and
receivers is approx. 10 metres. This range may be
reduced under certain local conditions, e.g. thickness
and type of wall partitions.
The following combination of devices is possible per
wireless group:
•
•
•
•
•
1 set of baby scales
1 set of personal scales
1 length measuring device
1 seca wireless printer
1 PC with seca USB wireless module
seca 360° wireless Network • 73
Channels
The devices communicate with each other within each
wireless group via three channels (C1, C2, C3). This
ensures reliable, troublefree data transmission.
When you set up a wireless group with the scales, the
device will suggest three channels guaranteeing optimum data transmission. We recommend accepting the
channel numbers suggested.
C1
C2
C3
0
You can also select the channel numbers (0 - 99) manually, for example if you want to set up more than one
wireless group.
The channels must be sufficiently far apart to ensure
troublefree data transmission. We recommend a spacing of at least 30. Each channel number may only be
used for one channel.
Example of configuration; channel numbers when setting up 3 wireless groups within one surgery:
• Wireless group 0: C1=_0, C2= 30, C3=60
• Wireless group 1: C1=10, C2=40, C3=70
• Wireless group 2: C1=20, C2=50, C3=80
Detection of equipment
devices
If you wish to set up a wireless group with the scales,
they will search for other active devices from the
seca 360° wireless system. The devices detected are
shown as modules in the display on the scales (e.g.
MO 3). The meaning of the numbers is as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
74 •
1: Personal scales
2: Length measuring device
3: Wireless printer
4: PC with seca USB wireless module
7: Baby scales
