2. GETTING STARTED
2.1 Installation
Site Preparation Requirements
The Cardinal Model 212/212X indicator is a precision weight-measuring
instrument. As with any precision instrument, it requires an acceptable
environment to operate at peak performance and reliability. This section
is provided to assist you in obtaining such an environment.
Environmental
The 212/212X indicator meets or exceeds all operating requirements
within a temperature range of -4 to 158 ºF (-20 to +70 ºC).
Electrical Power
The 212/212X indicator has been designed to operate from 12VDC
(10.5-14.4VDC) using an external battery or an optional 12VDC @ 1A,
AC Power Adapter (Cardinal part number AGPS)
Transient Suppression
The following recommendations will help to reduce transients:

Always use shielded cables to connect signal wires to the weight
indicator.

Keep wires that extend beyond the shield as short as possible.

Do not run load cell or signal cables from the weight indicator
along side or parallel to wiring carrying AC power. If unavoidable,
position the load cell and signal cables a minimum of 24" away
from all AC wiring.

Use zero voltage switching relays, optically isolated if possible.

212/212X Installation & Technical
RFI Immunity
The operation of sensitive electronic equipment can be adversely
affected by RF (Radio Frequency) radio transmissions. Digital
weight indicators are one such type of equipment. Radio
transmissions come from things like hand-held radio transmitters
and cell phones. One symptom of RFI (Radio Frequency
Interference) in a digital weight indicator is weight indication
instability during a radio transmission.
Cardinal digital weight indicators are designed with special
grounding and RFI shielding to achieve a high degree of immunity
to common RFI. To maximize the digital weight indicator’s
immunity to radio transmissions, follow these guidelines:
1. ALWAYS use shielded cable for all I/O (Input/Output)
connections to the digital weight indicator.
2. NEVER operate any radio transmitter within 2 meters (~6ft.) of
the weight indicator.
3. NEVER connect un-terminated serial, digital, or analog I/O
cables to the internal printed circuit boards of the digital weight
indicator.
4. KEEP the intended external I/O devices connected to I/O cables
interring the digital weight indicator.
5. ALWAYS connect the shield of the shielded cable to the
indicator back panel gland connector or other closest ground
terminal inside the indicator.
6. ALWAYS connect the shield of the shielded I/O cable at the
indicator end only. Leave the shield unconnected at the I/O
device.

J6 (+SEN) and J9 (-SEN) – Sense Jumpers
If the sense leads are NOT used, you must install plug-in jumpers at J6
and J9 adjacent to the terminal block. These jumpers attach the sense
leads to the excitation leads. If sense leads ARE used (as in motor truck
scales), these plug-in jumpers should be positioned on one plug-in pin
only or removed and stored for later use.
J8 – DLB (Dead Load Boost Jumper)
For very low dead loads (less than 10% of the combined load cell
capacity) connect the dead load boost jumper J8 on the printed circuit
board.
J7 – REMOTE OUTPUT SRC (Source)
The Remote Output SRC jumper J7, when connected, allows the
212/212X indicator to supply (source) VP (15VDC) or VCC (5vdc) to a

Other Calibration Modes (Calibration Mode Selection 3)
The 212/212X has five additional modes that can be used to perform
calibration. Three of the modes require a test load or test weights, one
requires the scale to be empty (and at zero) and the last uses the
calibration “C” numbers from a previous calibration.
Dual-Point with Zero (First Zero) Calibration
This is a standard calibration method requiring one weight, an empty
scale and has one conversion factor. This method uses two calibration
points (CAL1= and CAL2=) to establish a zero (no load) calibration value and
to span the indicator. The two points correspond to zero weight and the
test load or test weight and can be applied in any order. This method
should be used for first-time calibration and complete recalibration.
CAL1= – First Calibration Weight
1. The display will show CAL1=0. This is the first of two calibration
weights. This weight could be ZERO (NO LOAD) or the TEST
WEIGHTS (TEST LOAD).
2. Press the ENTER key to view the current setting.
3. If the first calibration weight is to be ZERO (NO LOAD), press the
ENTER key.
4. If the first calibration weight is to be the TEST WEIGHTS (TEST
LOAD), use the numeric keys to input the value of the test weights.
5. Place the weights on the scale platform, then press the ENTER key.

Dual-Point without Zero (False Zero) Calibration
This calibration method requires one test weight and establishes a new
conversion factor only. It is used to establish a false (temporary zero)
zero without affecting the zero calibration value stored during the last
calibration. This is particularly useful in tank weighing applications,
where it may be impractical or impossible to completely empty the tank.
This method uses two calibration points, CAL1= and CAL2=. The value of
the test weight is entered when CAL1= is displayed and the NET/GROSS
key is pressed when CAL2= is displayed.
CAL1= – First Calibration Weight
1. The display will show CAL1=0. This is the first of two calibration

Single-Point for Span Only (Last Zero) Calibration
This calibration method requires one test weight and establishes a new
conversion factor (span) without affecting the zero calibration value
stored during the last calibration. This minimizes placing and removing
test weights and is especially useful when checking high capacity scales.
This method uses two calibration points, CAL1= and CAL2=. The value of
the test weight is entered when CAL1= is displayed and the ZERO key is
pressed when CAL2= is displayed.
CAL1= – First Calibration Weight
1. The display will show CAL1=0. This is the first of two calibration
steps.
2. Press the ZERO key to zero the scale.
3. Place the TEST WEIGHTS (TEST LOAD) on the scale platform.
4. Using the numeric keys input the value of the test weights.
5. Press the ENTER key.
6. Next, starting at the left and proceeding right, the dashes will

Single-Point for Zero Only (Only Zero) Calibration
This calibration method requires no test weight, an empty scale and
establishes a new zero without affecting the conversion factor (span).
This is useful to regain the full range of zero limit when the dead load of
the scale has changed. This would occur for example, if a guard rail has
been added to the scale platform. This method uses two calibration
points, CAL1= and CAL2=. The ENTER key is pressed when CAL1= is
displayed and the ZERO key is pressed when CAL2= is displayed.
CAL1= – First Calibration Weight
1. The display will show CAL1=0. This is the first of two calibration steps.
2. Insure the scale is empty.

4. The scale is now ready to weigh an animal. Direct the animal onto
the scale.
5. Once the scale becomes stable above the preset threshold (THRES)
value, a 3 second timer will start. If the weight stays within the
balance tolerance (+ or – BALTOL), the indicator will lock onto the
average weight once the timer expires. If the weight variation is
greater than the balance tolerance, the timer will stop and the
indicator will wait for the scale to become stable above the threshold
weight once again. The 3 second timer will restart once stable.
This process will repeat until a hold weight is acquired.

6. The weighing is now complete and the animal can be
removed from the scale.
7. If you are using Standard Mode (A-HLD= 1) the held weight will
be released once the scale weight drops below the preset
threshold.
8. If you are using Advanced Mode (A-HLD= 2), the held weight
will not be released. Instead, the weight will continue to hold
on the indicator until a new hold weight is acquired (i.e.
another animal is weighed).
9. Repeat these steps for subsequent animal weights. If you
wish to continue using the stored tare weight, skip steps 1-3.

3.6 Using Memory/ID Storage
The 212/212x indicator can store up to 100 ID's in memory. Stored with
each ID is a weight accumulator, a weight counter, the last weighment, a
threshold preset weight used for animal weighing, and two weight
presets used for DFC and PWC operations.
Recommended Settings:
Setup your indicator for the desired operation mode before creating ID's
because when you create an ID, you will only be prompted for presets
relevant to the current mode or features selected.
(Ex: If you have DOUT= 0 and A-HLD= 1 set, you will only be prompted to
store the preset threshold weight (THRES) used with the Auto-Hold feature.
You will not be prompted to store any preset values for the DOUT settings).
Adding an ID to Memory:
1. While the indicator is displaying weight, press the MEM key.
2. The indicator will display ID= . Now you can enter in your desired 6digit alpha-numeric ID. To use letters, you must press a key in rapid
succession until the desired letter is displayed. This is similar to the
way a cell phone keypad operates. (Ex: If you want to enter the letter
C, you would need to press the 2 key four times).
3. If you make a mistake, you can press the ZERO/CLEAR key to back
up 1 character.
4. Press ENTER key to store the ID.
5. You will be prompted to store values associated with this ID starting
with Presets for the feature(s) you have selected. These prompts are
the same as described in the “Preset Setup Procedure” subsections
of the Auto-Hold, PWC, and DFC sections above.
6. With each prompt, press the ENTER key to display the current value.
If the value is acceptable, press ENTER to accept otherwise key in
your desired value then press ENTER.
7. Once you have entered all of the presets for the ID, the display will
show ACCUM=. This is the starting value of the accumulated weight
associated with the ID. Press ENTER to display the current value
(default is 0). If this value is acceptable, press the ENTER, otherwise
enter in a starting value for the accumulator and press ENTER.
8200-M639-O1 Rev D 09/14
