INSTALLATION
UNPACKING
Before beginning installation of your scale, make certain the instrument has been received in
good condition. When removing the scale from its packing, inspect it for signs of damage,
such as exterior dents and scratches. Keep the carton and packing material for return
shipment if it should become necessary. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to file all
claims for any damages or loss incurred during transit.
1. Remove the scale from the shipping carton and inspect it for any signs of damage.
2. Plug-in the 15VDC adapter to use the scale and to begin charging the battery pack.
Refer to the POWER SUPPLY or BATTERY PACK sections of this manual for more
instruction.
3. Place the scale on a flat level surface.
4. The scale is now ready for use.
POWER SUPPLY
To apply power to the scale using the supplied 15VDC,
300 mA power supply, insert the plug from the power supply
cable into the power jack on the right side of the indicator
and then plug power supply into the proper electrical outlet.
The scale is now ready for operation.
BATTERY PACK
The scale uses a 7.2VDC, 1200 mA built-in rechargeable battery pack. The VET330 can
operate for approximate 8 hours of continuous use with a fully charged battery pack.
BATTERY CHARGING
To recharge the battery pack, the power supply must be connected to an AC power outlet and
plugged into the scale. It will take approximately 14 hours to fully recharge the battery pack in
the scale. While the batteries are charging the VET330 can still be operated. Note that
charging the battery pack for more than 14 hours will not damage it.
If the power supply is disconnected before the 14 hours, the scale will continue to charge the
battery pack when the power supply is plugged back in.
LOW BATTERY
When the battery pack is near the point it needs to be recharged, a low battery indicator on the
display will turn on. If the battery voltage drops too low for accurate weighing, the scale will
automatically shut off and you will be unable to turn it back on. When the low battery indicator
is displayed, the operator should plug the power supply into the scale and then into the proper
electrical wall outlet. The scale will begin charging the battery pack.
