INTRODUCTION
The Vulcan Front Fork Weighing System consists of two weight measuring forks, two
mounting kits welded to the cross tube, V600 electronics package and associated
accessories for protecting the system. It is designed to measure individual commercial
collection weights and can monitor net or gross weight by summing the pickup weights.
Commercial pickup weights can be measured each time or by using an audit approach. This
allows operators to optimize pricing of commercial accounts and improve their competitive
position. The Front Fork Scale also allow operations to eliminate overweight fines, minimize
legal liabilities, and reduce maintenance expenses by assuring the vehicles are not
overloaded.
The V600 Fork Scale User Manual details how to operate the system. This small bound
manual comes packaged with the V600 meter and should be included with every installed
system.
There are three types of electronic kits that can be used with the fork scale. From the most
basic push button auditing system to a complete Weigh-In-Motion system.
The three electronic systems are:
P/N
Description
A01: A simple Manual push button - primarily used for specific customer auditing.
A04: Static weighing method - driver pauses the fork motion, then the weight is taken
automatically.
A02: Full Weigh-In-Motion with lift control method - no pausing the forks motion, weight is
taken automatically.
Vulcan recommends that a scale ready cross tube be used for installation. It simplifies the
installation process, saves 8-10 hours of installation time and better assures a properly
aligned system. Scale ready cross tubes are available from Vulcan for Heil and McNeilus
refuse bodies. They can also be purchased from the OEM. Other OEM’s may also have
scale ready cross tubes available.
This installation manual details mounting a fork system with both a scale ready cross tube,
and mounting a fork system on an existing cross tube assembly.
A CD is included with this manual. It contains a PDF version of this manual. There is also a
second CD which contains the V600 Fork Scale User Manual and A video of How to
Download Data from the V600 meter.
This Installation Manual is available from the Vulcan website at www.vulcanscales.com.

VULCAN FORK SCALE DIMENSIONS WHEN MOUNTED TO DIFFERENT CROSS
TUBES
The Vulcan Front Fork Scale is designed to mount directly to a front loader cross tube.
The Front Fork Mounting Kit is used in conjunction with the Front Fork Scale, replacing the
original manufacturer’s front fork. There are currently mounting kits for five different standard
cross tube dimensions. Three mounting kits were designed for round cross tubes, 3-1/2", 4",
and 4-1/2". Mounting kits were also designed for a 4" and 5" square cross tube. The kits
have either a bolt/nut, through hole fastening configuration or a bolt/threaded insert fastening
configuration.
In addition, a universal mounting kit is designed for through hole mounting only. The installer
can configure this kit as required to meet the geometry needs of special installations.
All forks are 1-1/2" thick and the height tapers from 5-1/2" at the bumper to 2-1/2" towards
the tip. The height at the end of the tip is 4".
Cross tube mounting clamps are shown in the following pictures with dashed lines.
For 10 yard bins and other very large containers, make sure the fork scale configuration will
allow the bin contents to be dumped into the hopper without overshooting or undershooting.
Configuration adjustments may have to be made to correct any problems that may develop
from dumping such large containers. Spacers can be added to the fork scale bumper blocks
as required.

INSTALL SCALE READY CROSS TUBE (RECOMMENDED BY VULCAN)
Scale ready cross tubes can be purchased from Stress-Tek, Inc. for both McNeilus and Heil
front loader vehicles. The scale ready cross tube for McNeilus is for the Atlantic Coast truck
model. The Pacific Coast truck model is designed for the California market specifically and
has a 9000 lb capacity fork vs. a 10,000 lb capacity fork used on the Atlantic model.
Other OEM’s may sell a scale ready cross tube as well.
4.1
WHAT IS A SCALE READY CROSS TUBE?
A Scale ready cross tube includes:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Complete cross tube sub assembly with the fork mounting clamps welded to the
cross tube for the Heil and McNeilus front loaders.
Strengthening coupler tube, welded between the fork mounting clamp and bell
crank.
A cross tube cable protector for running cable between the fork scales.
Complete assembly is painted with an industrial primer finish.
Assembly is a direct bolt in replacement, all the major welding and alignment is
done for you by Vulcan Scales.
Once this assembly is installed, the fork scales are simply bolted to it.
The scale ready cross tube simplifies the installation and saves 8-10 hours by
eliminating fabrication and welding steps. It also assures the scale system is
properly aligned.

INSTALLING THE SCALE READY CROSS TUBE
Unbolt and drop out the existing fork cross tube. Keep the cap plates matched to the sides
where they came from. They are a matched pair and may not be interchangeable.
Inspect bushings for excessive wear. Replace as required. Grease bushings before
installing scale ready cross tube.
Bolt in the scale ready cross tube. Align and torque all bolts to secure new cross tube.
After bolting on the cross tube assembly, go to section 6.0 “Install Fork Assembly on Cross
Tube” and complete the fork installation.

PREINSTALLATION MEASUREMENTS
5.1.1 Measure the existing cross tube cross-section to ensure the proper fork mounting kit
was ordered. If the tube is round, measure the diameter. If the tube is square,
measure one side (refer to Figure 5-A).
5.1.2 Verify the new fork assembly when installed, still dumps the bin contents without
overshooting (refer back to Figures 2-B through 2-F). This is especially important if
lifting 10 yard containers. Although all trucks do not have the same size forks, the
Vulcan Front Fork is designed to be similar to the typical OEM fork dimensions.
5.1.3 If the installation of the Front Fork System is on a new truck without factory forks
installed, consult body manufacturer for the fork hydraulic extension dimension that is
ideal for their truck (refer forward to Figure 5-B).

MEASURE EXISTING CONFIGURATION
5.2.1 Lower arms so the cross tube is waist level. Use a level to position the fork on a
horizontal plane. Measure how far the fork hydraulic cylinder is extended (refer to

REMOVE EXISTING FORKS AND RELATED HARDWARE
Note: Instead of removing the existing fork, some operations remove the existing
cross tube and fork assembly to use as a spare. This is replaced with just the OEM
cross tube, which these mounting clamps are then welded to.
5.3.1 It is recommended to remove the existing factory mounted fork assemblies from the
cross tube by using an air arc (carbon arc). Note: Removing the cross tube and fork
assembly from the truck before starting the work is recommended. This allows the
fork mounting clamps to be welded in a flat position creating a better weld. This also
protects the truck from cutting and welding splatter and other damage.
5.3.2 Prepare the cross tube for installing the Front Fork Mounting Kit by grinding smooth
any excess welds, slag, or burrs. If the cross tube’s structural integrity is diminished
due to gouging or other actions during the removal of fork components, the cross tube
must be replaced.
5.3.3 Most truck body manufacturers use a reinforcement coupler support between the fork
and coupler plate. There are various types of coupler supports being installed by
OEM’s. The two most common types are illustrated below (refer to Figure 5-D). This
coupler support will need to be removed to allow welding access when installing the
fork mounting clamp on the cross tube. This coupler support must be reinstalled on
the fork scales so the final fork assembly is equivalent in strength to the original OEM
design.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE FOR WELDING FORK MOUNTING CLAMPS
There are two types of fork mounting brackets:
Threaded insert design, made from ASTM A514 (T-1) steel.
Through bolt design, made from ASTM A36 steel.
Below are general welding recommendations for all welding processes and specific welding
recommendations for welding on the ASTM A514 (T-1) steel parts.
5.4.1 General Recommendations:
1. Recommended weld process: Flux core arc welding (FCAW-G).
2. Recommend weld wire: UltraCore™ 712C, .045" minimum diameter, (larger
diameter desirable) mfg: Lincoln Arc Welding. This wire requires using 100% CO2
gas.
3. Recommend a weld machine with a 450A minimum capacity.
4. Use a 3 stringer minimum weld pass configuration. No weave pattern allowed.
5. All welds shall be free of cracks, overlaps, and unacceptable profiles shown in
Figure 5.4 in AWS D1.1 2006. Acceptable weld profiles are shown in this figure.
Full weld penetration required.
6. Preheat weld area to 250° F to remove all moisture from weld area.
7. Parts must be free of moisture, organic compounds, oils, rust and other welding
contaminates prior to welding.
8. Grind off mill scale on mounting clamps in the weld area.
9. Welding shall not be done when the immediate environment temperature is below
32° F.
10. It is recommended to remove the cross tube for welding fork mounting clamps and
stand on end to create a flat welding condition.
5.4.2 Additional specific recommendations for low hydrogen welding on ASTM A514 (T-1)
steel. This is for mounting clamps with threaded inserts.
1. Follow AWS D1.1 2006 for procedures, workmanship, technique, inspection, and
contractor obligations for low hydrogen welding on ASTM A514 (T-1) steel.
2. The weld wire is usable for only 7 days after sealed package is opened. Once
removed from original package, wire shall be protected and stored in a moisture
free environment so the welded metal properties are not negatively affected.
3. Minimum preheat temperature for ASTM A514 steel is 250° F. Maximum interpass
temperature is 450° F.
4. Subsequent weld inspection for cracking to be performed a minimum of 48 hours
after weld completion.
5. No thermal stress relieving permitted.

WELDING MOUNTING CLAMPS TO CROSS TUBE
Bolt the Front Fork Scales to the mounting clamps and the cross tube using the
1"-14 X 3" Grade 8 cap screws and the hardened steel washer plate. The cap screws do not
have to be tightened to their specified torque, 400-500 ft-lb is sufficient to create enough
clamping force between the mounting clamps and the fork. Note: This is the alignment stage
of the assembly. The bolts will be torqued to specification during final assembly. Use the
dimensions B, C, D, and E taken from the factory fork assembly (refer to Figure 5-C) to
position the Front Fork Scales in the same location and check for squareness. Make sure
both forks are level. The mounting clamps should fit snug around the cross tube when bolted
in place. Shimming should not be required. Note: Do not shim between Mounting Clamps
and Front Fork Scales (refer to Figure 5-E).

5.5.2 It is recommended to build a weld jig for holding the forks together and creating good
alignment between the forks and the cross tube. An optional method of fork alignment
is to tack weld an appropriate length (refer to Figure 5-C) of bar stock steel to the
Front Fork Scale tips to eliminate any possible movement during bracket tack welding
(refer to Figure 5-F).

Note: The tack welds must be sufficient so the Mounting Clamps do not pull out of position
during the final welding stage. If the Mounting Clamps do not remain square, the forks will
not mount correctly. It is recommended to use a weld jig.
Caution! Arcing on the body of the Front Fork Scale may seriously damage its
structural integrity and must NOT be installed if this occurs. This also voids
manufacturer’s warranty. It is OK to tack weld installation jigs to the fork tip.

INSTALL FORKS TO MOUNTING CLAMPS WITH WASHER PLATE
Re-attach the Front Fork Scales to the mounting clamps using the supplied 1"-14 hex cap
screws and hardened steel washer plate. Torque the 1"-14 hex cap screws to 1000 ft-lb.
Note: Ensure that the Mounting Clamp surfaces are clean and smooth before fastening the
fork to it. Use “Never Seize” or equivalent thread lubricant when installing all mounting cap
screws (refer to Figure 6-A). DO NOT use the “Never Seize” or any other grease on the
load cell connectors. Note: If bolts are not torqued to proper value, scale inaccuracies may
result. Torque stripes are recommended.
6.2
ASSEMBLE BUMPER PLATE AND BUMPER
6.2.1 Assemble the bumper plate with the 7/8"-14 hex cap screws provided. Remember
that two of these cap screws were used to package the fork scale to the shipping
pallet. Use “Never Seize” or equivalent thread lubricant when installing all mounting
fasteners. Torque the bumper plate hex cap screws to 700 ft-lb (refer to Figure 6-A).
Install the rubber bumpers using the four, ½" bolts, washers and locking flange nuts.
Check all fork scale mounting fastener torque values after the first week of operation
and periodically, using a normal maintenance schedule.
After torquing the 1" cap screws, weld each of the hardened steel washer plates to the
cross tube using a 3/16" fillet weld.
When installing the Vulcoder in section 7.4.2, one of these bumpers must be removed
to install a Vulcoder guard.

MINIMUM MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENT
Certain minimum maintenance will be necessary to claim warranty of Front Fork Scales.
Apply high quality paint to the Front Fork Scales and Mounting Clamps. For environments
where high concentrations of salts are used on road surfaces, undercoating is recommended
(3M, Universal Rubberized Undercoating, 3M P/N: 8883). Areas between the bumper plate
and cross tube are most critical and should be well coated. This specifically includes the
connector area, fork cover plate areas and mounting clamp contact areas. Note: Spray
undercoating only when Front Fork Scales are fully assembled to the Mounting Clamps and
are connected to the electronics.

CHECK EXHAUST PORT CLEARANCE
Check to verify the exhaust is not blowing on the forks where they attach to the cross tube.
Some trucks have exhaust exit ports on top of the cab guard that blow onto one of the forks
when it is in the up position while the truck is being driven. Prolonged exposure to hot
exhaust gases will damage the fork scale.
Below, figures 6-D through 6-G illustrate one possible modification to redirect the exhaust to
avoid exposure to hot exhaust.

The existing exhaust pipe is cut below the cab guard. Another section of exhaust pipe is
welded to the remaining exhaust system such that the exhaust exits through the cab guard
toward the center of the truck, between the two forks. A new hole is cut in the cab guard to
allow the exhaust to exit. This new hole must have a screen or use perforated steel to
prevent debris from going into it. The new exhaust port must be sufficiently large so no
backpressure is created on the exhaust system.
Modifications are only required to those trucks that have exhaust blowing directly in the path
of the fork motion.

DESCRIPTIONS OF THE THREE ELECTRONICS OPTIONS FOR THE FORK
SCALE
All Vulcan Front Fork Scales include a V600 Meter, VSL Vulcoder and offer three
control options for the scale system.
7.2.1 THE MANUAL METHOD (P/N: A01)
The Manual Method requires the installation of a “Weight Capture” button. The driver
lifts and levels a full bin, then presses the Weight Capture button to tell the meter to take a
weight reading. Similarly, on lowering the bin, before placing it on the ground, the driver
levels the empty bin and once again presses the Weight Capture button. Both the up and
down weights are captured and the net weight is calculated and displayed. This allows the
driver to take weights on all customers or complete audits on specific customers. This
system is recommended for auditing routes where not every customer is weighed.
The A01 kit comes with the Weight Capture button and all required parts.

Fork Scale Electronics Installation
36
7.2.2 THE STATIC METHOD (P/N: A04)
The Static Method requires the installation of a proximity switch to tell the meter when
a bin is lifted. The driver controls the fork speed to allow a weight to be taken. There is no
button to push to record weights. Instead, when the driver lifts and levels a full bin, the meter
detects when the weight is stable, takes a reading and produces an audible signal letting the
driver know a stable weight has been captured and to continue the lift. When returning the
empty bin, the driver levels the bin before placing it on the ground. The meter will once again
signal that a stable empty weight has been captured, and the driver can set the bin on the
ground. Both the up and down weights are automatically captured and the net weight is
calculated and displayed.
If the motion of the bin while lifting in the weigh zone is too rough, uncontrolled or generally
not smooth enough, the meter will not capture a weight and will display an “error” code. This
condition is acknowledged by multiple audible beeps from the meter when the bin exits the
weigh zone.
This same bin can be re-entered into the weigh zone to get a successful weight capture.
If the bin does not re-enter the weigh zone, no weight will be recorded for that customer and
an error message will be stored in meter memory for that customer.
The “static” system will not capture a weight value for a customer if the lift conditions are not
steady in the weigh zone.
The A04 kit comes with the proximity switch and all required parts.
7.2.3 THE WEIGH-IN-MOTION WITH LIFT CONTROL METHOD (P/N: A02)
The Weigh-In-Motion with Lift Control Method requires the installation of a proximity
switch to tell the meter that a bin has been lifted. A hydraulic valve is installed in the
lift arms hydraulic line which “softens” the movement of the arms. There is no need for
the driver to do anything other than a normal lift. The V600 Meter will capture the up and
down weights automatically while the bin is in motion. Both the up and down weights are
captured and the net weight is calculated and displayed. This is a completely automated
system.
When a successful up or down weight capture is made, it is acknowledged by two audible
beeps or a single beep from the meter.
If the motion of the bin while lifting in the weigh zone is too rough, uncontrolled or generally
not smooth enough, the meter will acknowledge this condition by multiple audible beeps
when the bin exits the weigh zone. In this case, the meter will still capture a weight, but the
weight captured may not be as accurate as it could be if lifted smoothly.
This same bin can be re-entered into the weigh zone to get a potentially more accurate
weight reading.
The Weigh-In-Motion with Lift Control “motion” system will always capture a weight value for
every customer no matter what the lifting conditions are in the weigh zone.

ROUTE VULCODER BLACK AND ORANGE CABLES
7.5.1 There are two black cable lengths, a short one and a longer one. The shorter length
cable is to be connected to the Front Fork Scale where the VSL Vulcoder is mounted.
The longer black cable is routed along the backside of the cross tube to the fork
opposite of the VSL Vulcoder. This cable has an added jacket for protection. Do not
trim, nick, or cut the black cables to length.
7.5.2 A mechanical cable guard must be installed to protect the black cable as it runs
across the cross tube. A cable guard can be made by the installer or purchased from
Vulcan Scales, (P/N: H55). Figure 7-E illustrates the cable guard that can be
purchased from Vulcan Scales.

7.5.3 Inspect the connectors on the VSL Vulcoder black cables by doing the following; verify
the connector has an O-ring, check the connectors on the Front Fork Scale and VSL
Vulcoders to make sure they are clean and dry. Important: Do not get moisture,
contact cleaner or any other substance inside the connectors. Do not grease or
lubricate inside the Front Fork Scale connector or VSL Vulcoder connector. These
components are highly sensitive to foreign substances and inaccurate readings will
occur if these components are contaminated. Your manufacturer’s warranty does
not cover the failure of VULCAN components due to contamination (use of
grease or other conductive substance) in either of these component
connectors.
7.5.4 Attach the black VSL Vulcoder cable connectors to the bulkhead connectors on the
Front Fork Scales. Make sure they are finger tight plus an additional 1/8 turn with
channel lock pliers. The additional tightening is necessary to correctly compress the
O-ring. This prevents scale errors, which can occur from moisture entering through
the connector. Caution: Do not over tighten the connectors as this can damage
them. Slide the heavy protective jacket up against the connector so the black cable
has maximum protection. Tape in place.
7.5.5 Route the 2-wire orange VSL Vulcoder cable from the Front Fork Scale to the arm,
allowing enough slack for cross tube rotation (refer to Figure 7-F). Route orange
cable by following the arm hydraulic lines to the arm pivot point. For extra protection,
we recommend welding a steel tube to the lift arm and routing the orange cable
through it. A tube 5/8" ∅ with a 1/16" wall is adequate size. The orange cable can be
pulled through using weld wire. A wire pulling lubricant can also be used to make it
easier to pull the cable through. Small clamps can be welded to the arm to hold the
steel tube in place.
The orange cable can also be routed inside the tube arm for protection. Protect the
cable inside an air line or hydraulic line when running inside the arm.
Route the orange cable to the inside of the arm when meeting the cross tube. The
cable is more vulnerable to damage if routed on the outside of the arm. For bodies
that tip for service, the orange cable must be routed from the arm pivot point through
the rear hinge pin and to the cab. Follow existing wire harness where possible. If the
cab is a front tilt model, route the cables through the hinge point to enter the cab,
preferably through a grommet.

1. Lift a bin off the ground within the weigh zone, keeping the forks level. It is best if the
bin has weight but it’s not required. Press the “Weight Capture” button. Wait for the
“two beep” audible signal from the meter to verify weight capture. The bin weight will
be displayed.
2. With the bin in the same position, again hit the “Weight Capture” button. Wait for the
“two beep” audible signal from the meter to verify weight capture. A net weight of
about zero should be displayed by the meter. If there are no beeps, recheck electrical
connections per section 8.1 and/or call Vulcan Scales.
3. Set the bin down and disengage the forks from the bin so there is no contact. The
meter display should return to zero, within 50 lb.
4. Repeat the first 3 steps 2 times to verify the full weights displayed and zero net
weights displayed are repeated within 50 lb.
5. All the up weight readings should be close to the same weight (within 50 lb) and all the
net weights should be close to zero (within 50 lb), although they may not be equal to
the exact pound or kilogram. If not, retorque fork mounting bolts per section 12.1
and/or call Vulcan Scales.
6. Activate the Driver Lockout Password feature. Vulcan Scales recommends the
activation of this password feature to prohibit the driver from changing the scale
system setup parameters. See section 13.1 to activate this feature.

9.3.4 Using the Static System as Weigh-In–Motion
The Static System (A04) can be used with the Static meter software or the Weigh-In-Motion
software. The user can select either software method. If the static scale system is used with
the Weigh-In-Motion software, the driver must be careful to make a smooth lift in the weigh
zone. There is no hydraulic valve to automatically smooth out the arm motion in the weigh
zone. The hydraulic valve only comes with the Weigh-In-Motion kit, (A02).
How the “Static” software system works:
The driver controls the fork speed to allow a weight to be taken. If a successful up or down
weight capture is made, it is acknowledged by two audible beeps from the meter.
If the motion of the bin while lifting in the weigh zone is too rough, uncontrolled or generally
not smooth enough, the meter will not capture a weight and will display an “error” code. This
condition is acknowledged by multiple audible beeps from the meter when the bin exits the
weigh zone.
This same bin can be re-entered into the weigh zone to get a successful weight capture.
If the bin does not re-enter the weigh zone, no weight will be recorded for that customer and
an error message will be stored in meter memory for that customer.
The “Static” system will not capture a weight value for a customer if the lift conditions are to
uncontrolled in the weigh zone.
How the “Weigh-In-Motion” software system works:
There is no need for the driver to do anything other than a normal lift. The V600 Meter will
capture the up and down weights automatically while the bin is in motion. If a successful up
or down weight capture is made, it is acknowledged by two audible beeps or a single beep
from the meter.
If the motion of the bin while lifting in the weigh zone is too rough, uncontrolled or generally
not smooth enough, the meter will acknowledge this condition by multiple audible beeps
when the bin exits the weigh zone. In this case, the meter will still capture a weight, but the
weight captured may not be as accurate as it could be if lifted smoothly.
This same bin can be re-entered into the weigh zone to get a potentially more accurate
weight capture.
The “Motion” system will always capture a weight value for every customer no matter what
the lifting conditions are in the weigh zone.

Press the ENTER button to store the method.
9.3.6 VERIFY FORK OPERATION
Verify the forks are working by either sitting or standing on the each fork. The scales should
read the amount of weight on each fork.
1. With a bin on the forks (empty or full), run the lift arms up and down and verify the
meter gives the “two beep” signal for weight capture for both up and down directions.
If not:
• Verify the proximity switch illuminates its yellow light indicating the detection of the
weigh zone.
• Verify the weigh position of the proximity switch is triggered up to 6' off the ground.
2. Lift a bin (with weight is preferred, but empty is OK) through the up and down cycle 5
times without dumping and check the repeatability of the meter’s computed readings.
Note each up and down reading the meter computes. All up readings should be close
to the same weight (within 50 lb) and all down readings should be close to the same
weight (within 50 lb), although they may not be equal to the exact pound or kilogram.
3. Activate the Driver Lockout Password feature. Vulcan Scales recommends the
activation of this password feature to prohibit the driver from changing the scale
system set up parameters. See section 13.1 to activate this feature.

2. Lift a bin (with weight is preferred, but empty is OK) through the up and down cycle 5
times without dumping and check the repeatability of the meter’s computed readings.
Note each up and down reading the meter computes. All up readings should be close
to the same (within 50 lb) and all down readings should be close to the same (within
50 lb), although they may not be equal to the exact pound or kilogram.
3. Activate the Driver Lockout Password feature. Vulcan Scales recommends the
activation of this password feature to prohibit the driver from changing the scale
system set up parameters. See section 13.1 to activate this feature.
10.5
CALIBRATION
The Front Fork Scale comes calibrated from the factory. There is no need for further
calibration by the installer. Once the system is working in the field, fine tuning the calibration
may be desired to obtain a higher accuracy. This can only be done after the system is
working in the field.
The V600 Fork Scale User Manual has complete details on the calibration methods.

WEIGH-IN-MOTION WITH LIFT CONTROL
GUIDELINES TO MAXIMIZE PICKUP WEIGHT ACCURACY
•
Just before bin engagement with forks in level position, if the meter reads more than 50 lb, press
the TARE / ZERO button to rezero.
•
Lift the full bin off of the ground smoothly and maintain a smooth motion through the 6' weigh
zone. Lower the empty bin smoothly through the 6' weigh zone.
While lifting the bin, keep the forks level in the weigh zone until a single or double beep is emitted
by the meter.
Set the bin down gently on the ground.
If maneuvering a bin into the lifting position, momentarily set the bin back on the ground before
lifting to dump. This will reset the weigh cycle.
If picking a bin from a dock, bring it down to a few feet off the ground, this will reset the weighing
cycle.
If continuous beeping occurs while lifting the bin to dump, bring the bin back into the weigh zone
until the meter emits a single or double beep.

13.0 FORK SCALE TROUBLESHOOTING AND REPAIR
FORK SCALE TROUBLESHOOTING
In general, troubleshooting is a systematic process of testing and eliminating potential
problem sources until the one that is causing the problem is found. The problem can then be
fixed by repairing or replacing the faulty part.
With a little knowledge and by following a step by step procedure, most of the problems that
you may encounter will be easy to diagnose and solve. In this section, you will find
guidelines on how to troubleshoot the system, some characteristics of a properly functioning
system, and where to look when certain problems occur.
Occasionally, someone has a problem that is not described here. By approaching the
problem systematically, you will be able to eliminate potential sources of trouble until you find
the one that is causing the problem.
The following section covers an explanation of V600 Test Procedures, Fork Scale Evaluation
Test Procedures and Vulcan Error Codes.

VULCAN CHECK-OUT BOX
The Vulcan Check-Out Box can be used to check the fork scales and electronics. It works as
an extension to bring fork scale connector pins to the side of truck where readings can be
conveniently made. It can also simulate an applied load to the VSL Vulcoder. The CheckOut Box is an optional equipment item for the Leakage and Resistance Tests. Vulcan Scales
recommends every installer and troubleshooter has one.
Before using the Check-Out Box, make sure the meter fuses are good. Use a multi-meter to
ensure there is a minimum of 10.4 Vdc from the input power connections at the back of the
meter when the system is running. (Make sure the green plug is plugged in and the meter is
turned on.) If there are any error messages displayed, refer to section 13.7 “V600 Meter
Error Codes”.
To order a Check-Out Box (P/N: S22), contact your Vulcan dealer.

FORK SCALE EVALUATION TESTS
The tests listed below will help identify and locate any problem you may encounter with your
Vulcan fork scales.
Leakage Test
Tare Test
Resistance Test
13.6.1 LEAKAGE TEST PROCEDURE
Required Equipment: Digital Multi-Meter With Conductivity Scale
Isopropyl Alcohol
Cotton Swabs
Hair Dryer
Optional Equipment:
Vulcan Check-Out Box
The Leakage Test detects the presence of moisture that could cause erratic meter readings.
The way to measure leakage is to use a digital multi-meter that has a conductivity scale.
Electrical isolation is measured between any pin and an unpainted clean surface on the fork
scale or the connector body. Electrical isolation must not exceed 2.0 nS (nano-siemens) or
be less than 500 Meg Ohms. Nano-siemens and Meg Ohms are two different units of
measure for evaluating electrical leakage.
Refer to Figure 13-B for the Leakage Test equipment setup.
For proper operation, the power and signal leads from the fork scale must have a very high
resistance to the fork scale body. An electrical path between the wires and the body would
indicate moisture in the fork or shorting to the body. This would result in erratic, fluctuating,
or even out of range weight displays.
If the fork scale fails (electrical isolation is greater than 2.0 nS or is less that 500 Meg Ohms),
check the inside of the fork scale connector with a dry cotton swab to make sure it is clean
and dry. If not, clean with isopropyl alcohol, dry with a hair dryer, and check the electrical
isolation again.
If the fork scale cannot be brought to Vulcan specifications, contact Vulcan customer service
or your Vulcan dealer.

Press the PWR / MENU button twice to go directly to the normal operating mode.
Note: Pressing the PWR / MENU button before pressing the ENTER button will cancel that
configuration change.
Disconnect one fork scale from the VSL Vulcoder of the channel to be tested.
The meter will display the “still connected” fork scale preload number. The preload number
should not exceed +2,000 lb to -2,000 lb.
If the preload number is between +2,000 lb to -2,000 lb, the fork scale is within specification.
Test the other fork scale using the same method. If the preload number is within
specification for both fork scales, reconnect and secure all fork scale leads. Reset the Tare
weight if required. Note: If the preload number is out of specification, clean the fork scale
connector and cable connector with cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol and dry thoroughly
with a hair dryer. DO NOT OVERHEAT the connector. This procedure will remove any
moisture that may have been causing the problem.
Check the electrical isolation of the fork scale by performing the Leakage Test, (section
13.6.1).
Check the preload number again to see if it is within the +2,000 lb to -2,000 lb range. If the
fork scale is still out of range, it may be faulty. Perform the Resistance Test, (section 13.6.3).
If the fork scale cannot be brought to Vulcan specifications, contact Vulcan customer service
your Vulcan dealer.

What to Do:
1. Using a multi-meter, check the power at the back of the meter. When the meter is
turned on and off, the power should not change more than 1/2 Volt. Turn off the meter
either by the key or truck battery switch for a few seconds and then turn on again. If
the meter still does not work, proceed to step 2.
2. Check the fuses for both negative and positive leads. Use 2 amp fast blow fuses for
12 Vdc applications and 1 amp fast blow fuses for 24 Vdc applications.
3. Check the power supply wires are attached correctly at the 12 or 24 Volt power source
and to the green connector at the back of the meter. Check the battery connections
for corrosion.
4. If a spare meter is available, the quickest and easiest next step is to exchange the
meter. If the new meter works, try the old meter again. If the old meter now works,
the problem was likely the meter’s internal circuit breaker. If both the old meter and
the new meter do not work, the problem is most likely in the power source (battery,
meter power cable, or fuses). If the new meter works, but the old one doesn’t, the old
meter is faulty.
If you do not have a spare meter, disconnect then reconnect the green power plug on
the back of the meter. If the meter doesn’t work, then check the power source
(battery, meter power cable, or fuses). If the power source checks out OK, then the
meter is faulty.
Possible Causes For "LO-LO" and "2
X":
1. VSL line (orange cable) is pinched or shorted.
2. VSL line incorrectly wired.
3. Damaged VSL plug or receptacle.
What to Do:
1. Using a multi-meter, check the voltage at the back of the meter when the meter is
turned on and off. The power should not change more than 1/2 Volt. Turn off the
meter either by the key or truck battery switch for a few seconds and then turn on
again. If the meter still shows the error, proceed to step 2.
2. Check the fuses for both negative and positive leads. Use 2 amp fast blow fuses for
12 Vdc applications and 1 amp fast blow fuses for 24 Vdc applications. Blown fuses
could indicate a shorted VSL line. Check for a shorted line by disconnecting the green
and white wire from the back of the meter. Measure the resistance between the green
and white wire. It should be greater than 1000 Ohms.
3. Faulty meter. Replace meter.

3. Check the power supply wires are attached correctly at the 12 Volt power source and
to the green connector at the back of the meter. Check the battery connections for
corrosion.
4. If a spare meter is available, the quickest and easiest next step is to exchange the
meter. If the new meter works, try the old meter again. If the old meter now works,
the problem was likely the meter’s internal circuit breaker. If both the old meter and
the new meter do not work, the problem is most likely in the power source (battery,
meter power cable, or fuses). If the new meter works, but the old one doesn’t, the old
meter is faulty.
If you do not have a spare meter, disconnect then reconnect the green power plug on
the back of the meter. If the meter doesn’t work, then check the power source
(battery, meter power cable, or fuses). If the power source checks out OK, then the
meter is faulty.
13.8.9 IDLE – Next Cust # n
IDLE- Next Cust # n is not an error condition. It indicates the system is ready to download
data.
To download data from the V600 Meter, the forks must be out of the weigh zone and have
less than 200 lb on the display. Data cannot be downloaded without these conditions being
met. When these conditions are met, the meter will display “IDLE – Next Cust # n” indicating
data can be downloaded. The word “IDLE” will be flashing.
Refer to the V600 Fork Scale User Manual for details on how to download data from the
V600 Meter.
13.8.10 PASSWORD?
“Password?” showing on the lower display is not an error condition. It indicates the Driver
Password Lockout feature is activated. It prohibits modification of any of the Configure
System, Setup/Calibrate, Sequence Channels, or the System Test menus without entering
the proper password. The meter comes from the factory with the password lock inactive.
To return to the normal operating mode if password is not known
Press the ENTER button.
Press the PWR / MENU button to return to the normal operating mode. The scale
system is now ready to weigh.
For activating and deactivating the Driver Lockout Password feature, see section 13.1.
