Introduction
The Counterpart offers practical solutions for a full range of precision counting applications. A bright LCD display
enables operators to easily view quantities, alphanumeric text messaging displays, part numbers to verify
descriptions, and correct part called from memory. One hundred and fifty item memory and two RS-232 ports and
Ethernet enable the Counterpart to provide real-time data collection and position it for the future growth of your
business. Multiple scales can be connected to the Counterpart, as well as an RS-232 bar code scanner and external
printer. When portability is required, choose the battery operation option of the Counterpart with up to 24 hours of
continuous use for mobile workstations, outdoor applications, and rental fleets. It’s built to withstand transport
from one area of the plant to another or from one business to the next. Simply connect a printer via RS-232 for
labeling, ticketing, or receipt tasks.
1.1
Standard Features
Counterpart offers a variety of standard features:
• AC operated (battery operation is optional)
• Lb, kg, g, oz weight display conversion
• Single- or dual-channel models with serial scale
• Two RS-232 ports for peripheral connections (with one port also supporting 20 mA transmit)
• On board Ethernet capability
• Scanner input (using RS-232 port)
• Revolution software utility for setup
• 150 item memory
1.2
Capacities and Resolutions
Table 1-1 lists the scale capacities and resolutions for all part numbered models of the Counterpart.
Counting scales specify two types of resolution:
• Weight (or external) resolution
• Counting (or internal) resolution
Weight resolution is displayed in divisions of the full scale capacity, which is divided into weight increments. For
example, a 5 lb scale divided into 10,000 display divisions would display weight with 0.0005 lb divisions (10,000
divisions x 0.0005 lb = 5.0 lb).
Counting resolution is based on the internal resolution of the scale. The default weight and counting resolutions for
the Counterpart capacities are shown below.

Making Power Connections
The power source used for the Counterpart must be properly grounded to an acceptable earth ground and the outlet
must be a grounded outlet. If the scale is remotely mounted, the platform must be separately grounded from the
chassis ground screw located on the bottom of the platform. Connect this screw with 18 gauge wire to the same
earth ground system as the AC power source. Failure to ground the base may cause static buildup that could cause
damage to the electronics and/or give incorrect weight readings.
The AC adapter plugs in and turns to lock to the unit. Figure 2-6 shows the AC power location.

Cable Grounding
Except for the power cord, all cables should be grounded against the scale enclosure. 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
enclosure studs. Install grounding clamps that will be used; do not tighten nuts.
• Route cables 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 2-9). 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 2-9).
• Finish installation using cable mounts and ties to secure cables inside of indicator enclosure.

2.8.2 Digital I/O
The Digital I/O can be configured as either digital inputs or digital outputs as determined by the Digital I/O menu
(see Section 3.7.3 on page 42). The inputs are active (on) with low voltage (0 VDC) and can be driven by TTL or
5V logic without additional hardware. Use the Digital I/O menu (see Section 3.7.3 on page 42) to configure the
digital inputs. LEDs on the CPU board light when digital inputs are active (see Figure 2-10).
Digital outputs are typically used to control relays that drive other equipment. Outputs are designed to sink not
source, switching current. Each output is a CMOS circuit, capable of sinking 24 mA when active. Digital outputs
are wired to switch relays when the digital output is active (low, 0 VDC) with reference to 5 VDC supply. LEDs on
the CPU board light up when the digital outputs are active (see Figure 2-10).

2.11 CPU Board Battery Replacement
Risk of explosion exists if battery is replaced with incorrect type. Dispose of batteries according to
CAUTION manufacturer instructions.
The lithium battery on the CPU board maintains the real-time clock and protects data stored in the system RAM
when the indicator is not connected to AC power. Data protected by this battery includes time and date, IDs,
buffered WeighVault transaction data and setpoint value data. If any data is lost, the indicator configuration can be
restored from the PC. Watch for the low battery warning on the LCD display and periodically check the battery
voltage on the CPU board. Batteries should be replaced when the indicator low battery warning comes on, or when
battery voltage falls to 2.2 VDC. Life expectancy of the battery is 7 years. Use Revolution to store a copy of the
configuration before attempting to replace the battery.
For best results, replace the battery while in weigh mode and with AC power applied. Use care not to bend the
battery retaining spring. The battery location on the CPU board is shown in Figure 2-13 on page 15 as B1.
2.12 Field Installation of Battery
An optional DC battery pack (PN124692) for Counterpart is available and can be purchased from Rice Lake
Weighing Systems to ship with the scale or retrofit in the field. The rechargeable 12V battery pack allows for more
than 24 hours of continuous use without an AC power supply.
Figure 2-11. Battery Pack CPU Board
The battery pack can be installed next to the CPU board of Counterpart. Use the following procedure to install or
replace the battery pack.
1. Disconnect power from scale prior to opening.
2. If indicator is connected to scale base, disassemble and set scale base aside.
3. Place the indicator on an anti-static mat.
4. Remove the four screws holding the top plate to the enclosure body and set them aside.
5. Gently lift the top plate away from the enclosure and disconnect any cables and set it aside.
6. Using the supplied nuts, secure battery pack to enclosure using a 5/16" nut driver.

Revolution Configuration
The Revolution configuration utility provides the preferred method for configuring the Counterpart 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.
Revolution supports both uploading and downloading of indicator configuration data. This capability allows
configuration data to be retrieved from one indicator, edited, and then downloaded to another indicator with an
identical hardware configuration.
To use Revolution, do the following:
1. Install Revolution on an IBM-compatible personal computer.
2. With both indicator and PC powered off, connect the PC serial port to the RS-232 pins on the indicator
serial port or to the optional USB communications card.
3. Power up the PC and the indicator. Use the setup switch to place the indicator in setup mode.
4. Start the Revolution program.

OIML, NTEP, and CANADA modes allow a tare to be acquired at any weight greater than zero.
NONE allows tares to be acquired at any weight value.
OIML, NTEP, and CANADA modes allow a tare to be cleared only if the gross weight is at no
load. NONE allows tares to be cleared at any weight value.
NTEP and OIML modes allow a new tare to be acquired even if a tare is already present. In
CANADA mode, the previous tare must be cleared before a new tare can be acquired.
NONE, NTEP and CANADA modes allow the scale to be zeroed in either gross or net mode as
long as the current weight is within the specified ZRANGE. In OIML mode, the scale must be
in gross mode before it can be zeroed; pressing the ZERO key in net mode clears the tare.
INDUST provides a set of subparameters to allow customization of tare, clear, and print

Calibration
The Counterpart can be calibrated using the front panel, EDP commands, or Revolution®.
Calibration can be performed in two places within the menu: the CALIBR menu shown in Figure 4-1 and the
Note SCALE sub-menu shown in Figure 3-8 on page 28. The CALIBR menu shown in Figure 4-1 is a “quick access”
calibration; for more in-depth scale setup and calibration, use the menus found under SETUP/CONFIG/
SCALE (see Figure 3-8 on page 28).
Calibration consists of the following steps:
• Zero calibration
• Entering the test weight value
• Span calibration
• Optional five-point linearization
• Optional rezero calibration for test weights using hooks or chains.
The Counterpart requires the WZERO and WSPAN points to be calibrated. The linearity points are optional,
Note but must not duplicate zero or span. During calibration, the TARE (Enter) key acts as a data entry confirmation
key. The soft calibrate key accepts that value.

4.2
Five-point Linearization
Five-point linearization (using the WLIN parameter) provides increased scale accuracy by calibrating the indicator
at up to five additional points between the zero and span calibrations.
Linearization is optional: if you choose not to perform linearization, skip the WLIN parameter; if linearization
values have previously been entered, these values are reset to zero during calibration. WZERO and WSPAN must
be calibrated before adding linearization points; WLIN values must be less than the WSPAN value and must not
duplicate WZERO or WSPAN.
To perform linearization, follow the procedure below:
With WLIN displayed, press Down to go to the first linearization point (POINT 1) and then press Down again to show
the weight value prompt (WGT 1). Then press Down to show the weight value. Place test weights on the scale, and
use the numeric keypad to enter the actual test weight value. Press enter to save the value and move to the
calibration (CAL 1) prompt. Press down to show the current calibration value, and then press the Calibrate softkey to
calibrate the linearization point. When complete, the AD count for the linear calibration is displayed. Press enter
again to save the calibration value and go to the next prompt (POINT 2).
Repeat for up to five linearization points. To exit the linearization parameters, press the Up key to return to WLIN.
4.3
Rezero
The optional rezero function is used to remove a calibration offset when hooks or chains are used to hang the test
weights.
Note The rezero function cannot be used with five-point linear calibration.
If no other apparatus was used to hang the test weights during calibration, remove the test weights and press Up to
return to the CALIBR sub-menu.
If hooks or chains were used during calibration, remove these and the test weights from the scale. With all weight
removed, go to the REZERO parameter, and press Down to show the current zero value. Press the Calibrate softkey
to adjust the zero and span calibration values. Press enter or Up to return to the CALIBR sub-menu.
Press Up to return to the SCALES menu, or press the Save and Exit softkey to exit setup mode.

Once the indicator is connected to the sending device, do the following:
1. Place the indicator in config mode (display must read SCALE — see Figure 3-8 on page 28) and remove all
weight from the scale platform. If your test weights require hooks or chains, place the hooks or chains on
the scale for zero calibration.
2. Send the SC.WZERO#n command to calibrate zero. The indicator displays CALIBRATING while calibration
is in progress.
3. Place test weights on the scale and use the SC.WVAL#n command to enter the test weight value in the
following format:
SC.WVAL=nnnnnn<CR>
4. Send the SC.WSPAN#n command to calibrate span. The indicator displays CALIBRATING while calibration
is in progress.
56

5. Up to five linearization points can be calibrated between the zero and span calibration values. Use the
following commands to set and calibrate a single linearization point:
SC.WLIN.V1=nnnnn<CR>
SC.WLIN.C1<CR>
The SC.WLIN.V1#n command sets the test weight value (nnnnn) for linearization point 1. The
SC.WLIN.C1#n command calibrates the point. Repeat using the SC.WLIN.Vx and SC.WLIN.Cx
commands as required for additional linearization points.
6. To remove an offset value, clear all weight from the scale, including hooks or chains used to hang test
weights, and send the SC.REZERO#n command. The indicator displays CALIBRATING while the zero and
span calibrations are adjusted.
7. Send the SC.KUPARROW#n or the SC.KEXIT#n EDP command to return to normal mode.

More About Calibration
The following provides additional information about compensating for environmental factors (Section 4.6.1) and also
provides diagnostic information for determining expected zero and span coefficients.
4.6.1 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 TARE (Enter) to show the test weight value. Press
or to adjust calibration up or down. Press the Calibrate softkey to save the value, and press to return to the
CALIBR menu.

Counterpart Counting Scale Indicator

Scale Operations
The following contains detailed operator instructions for Counterpart, including instructions on how to enter tare
weights, toggle between net and gross weight, enter unit weights, perform inventory accumulation and reduction,
and toggle between scales. All operator instructions are conducted with the scale in the operation mode that is the
weighing or normal mode.
Counting scale accuracy is determined by:
• Sample size (number of pieces)
• Total sample size as a percentage of full scale capacity
• Piece-to-piece weight variation
As a general rule when determining sample size of fairly uniform pieces, the larger the sample size, the greater the
total sample weight, and therefore, the better the counting accuracy. Selecting the smallest capacity scale that can
obtain the highest counting resolution should be considered, but should not sacrifice the capacity required for the
heaviest container of parts. For this kind of application, a dual-platform scale may be the best selection. There is a
direct relationship between piece-to-piece weight variation (non-uniformity) and counting accuracy.
Therefore, elimination of the piece-to-piece weight variations can be accomplished by:
1. Isolating the sample used to calculate the unit weight and using the same sample to re-check the scale.
2. Recalculating the unit weight from lot-to-lot of parts. Parts manufactured on one machine may vary
slightly from another machine relative to weight.
3. Tightening the manufacturing tolerances on the parts reduces piece weight variations and increases count
accuracy.
The Stand-by Screen
At the stand-by screen the WEIGHT, UNIT WEIGHT, and QUANTITY displays show zeros and the annunciator for the
platform is illuminated (Scale 1 or 2).
5.1
Weight Unit Switching
The weight units displayed can be changed between primary, secondary and tertiary units during weighing
operations by pressing the UNITS TOGGLE key.
5.2
Entering Tare Weights
Tare weights can be entered in the scale by one of two methods: one-touch tare or digital tare. Digital tare is used
when the tare weight is already known while one-touch tare is used when the tare weight is unknown. If you call up
an Item Code already programmed into the Counterpart memory and you have a tare weight stored for that Item
Code, the tare weight stored with the Item Code will override one entered digitally or by using the TARE key.
5.2.1 One-Touch Tare, Tare Unknown
1. If the tare weight value is not known, place the item to be tared on the scale and press TARE. The weight
display should now show 0 and the Net annunciator should illuminate.
2. Remove the item from the scale. The weight display should show a negative weight value (weight of the
tared container, box, or item).
3. To clear the tare weight, press TARE with no weight on the scale. The scale should be at gross zero. The Net
annunciator will no longer be illuminated.
5.2.2
Digital Tare, Tare Weight Known
1. If the tare weight value is known, use the numeric keypad to key in the value and then press TARE. The Net
annunciator will illuminate.
2. To reset the tare to zero, press TARE again with no weight on the scale while the scale is at gross zero and
the Zero annunciator is lit.
Scale Operations
59
5.3
Toggling Between Gross and Net
To toggle between net and gross weight, a tare value must be entered into the scale. See Section 5.2 to enter a tare
value.
After a tare value is entered into the scale, items placed on the scale will cause the Net annunciator to illuminate
and allow toggling between net weight and gross weight. For example:
1. Place 0.5 lb weight on the scale and then press TARE. The weight display should show 0.000 lb.
2. Place another 0.5 lb weight on the scale. The scale weight display should show 0.500 and the Net
annunciator should be illuminated.
3. Press the GROSS/NET key. The weight display should show 1.000 GROSS WEIGHT, and the Net annunciator
will no longer be illuminated.
4. Press the GROSS/NET key. The weight display should show 0.500 and the Net weight annunciator should be
illuminated again.
5.4
Entering Unit Weights
Entering unit weights can be done either by sampling, as presented in Section 5.4.1, or by key entry as described in
Section 5.4.2.
EXTENT OF INSUFFICIENT SAMPLES controls unit weight sampling. The default setting for the INSFSMPLE is
Note 0.1 percent.
SAMPLE QUANTITY determines the number of pieces the scale assumes are on the platter when you press
the SAMPLE key to calculate the unit weight. The default setting is 10 pieces.
XFRUNITWT sets whether the unit weight determined by sampling is automatically transferred from Scale 1 to
Scale 2. The default setting is AUTOMATIC.
UNIT WEIGHT BASE controls whether the unit weight is displayed per 1000 pieces or per 1 piece. The default
Note setting for this is 1000 pieces.
Unit Weight per 1000 Pieces vs. Unit Weight per 1 Piece
The scale’s internal microprocessor calculates unit weights to several decimal places. However, the scale display
generally can only show unit weight to a maximum of 8 characters (or 7 places and a decimal point). If this unit
weight is recorded from the scale display and entered by key entry, this can introduce errors in the unit weight and
consequently in the counts. This error increases as the unit weight of the parts being counted decreases.
Example: A sample of 10 zener diodes is placed on the scale. The unit weight is computed to be 0.000653642 lbs.
However, the scale has a 7 character display for unit weight (or 6 places after the decimal point — 0.000000) so the
scale can only display 0.000653 as the unit weight. If this unit weight were recorded and keyboard entered in future
counting operations, the resulting error would be: 0.000653642 - 0.000653 x 100
(
0.000653642
)
= 0.098%
On the other hand, with entry of the unit weight as “weight per 1000 pieces” the decimal place is, in effect, moved
three places to the right, allowing 3 more decimal places of accuracy. In this example, the entry would be made as
0.653642 per 1000 pieces, eliminating the error.
As a practical note, entering unit weights per 1000 pieces also lessens the chances of entering the wrong number of
zeros when keying in weights with many leading zeros. Incorrect entry of unit weights is a common cause of
inaccurate counting.
You might want to use unit weight per 1 piece generally this case:
1. When working with other existing systems or procedures that are already set up to record unit weight per
piece such as (inventory systems or labeling requirements).

SAMPLE key. The scale calculates a unit weight based on the weight of the sample. The following details the
procedure with UNIT WEIGHT set at either on or off.
Default settings are placed at 10 pieces. To key in a larger sample, key in the quantity and press SAMPLE.
Unit Weight Update Set to “Off” (Default)
Parts can be sampled (generating a new unit weight) or a unit weight can be scanned, but the new unit weight is not
saved into the stored copy of the loaded ID record.
Unit Weight Update Set to “On”
Parts can be sampled (generating a new unit weight) or a unit weight can be keyed or scanned and the new unit
weight is saved into the stored copy of the currently loaded ID record. If WeighVault is also enabled, a WeighVault
ID update will also occur.
5.4.2
Unit Weight Operation by Key Entry
Unit weight operation by key entry is accomplished by using the numeric keypad to enter the known value of the
unit weight and then pressing the UNIT WEIGHT key. For example:
1. With the display in the weighing mode, enter the known unit weight of 200.00 using the keyboard.
2. Press the UNIT WEIGHT key to enter the unit weight.
3. Place a 2 lb weight on the scale. The weight display reads 2.000, the unit weight display reads 200.00, and
the quantity display reads 10.
You can also enter a weight as APW (average piece weight) or unit weight per thousand.
Note To clear the unit value, enter 0 and push the Unit Weight key.
Piece Weight Enhancement
After performing a sample process, the unit determines the maximum number of pieces that could be accurately
used for a recompute. If the number of pieces on the scale is less than the recompute value, the RECOMP
annunciator will be shown.
1. Place items to be counted on the scale platter; make sure the RECOMP annunciator is still on.
2. Press the SAMPLE key while the RECOMP annunciator is shown. This will start a sample process using the
current piece count (instead of the SAMPLEQTY value) as the sample quantity.
Negative Counting (Full Box Counting)
Just as you can count by adding parts to the scale, you can also count by removing parts from the scale. This is
called “negative counting” because a negative weight is displayed while counting. However, you do not use the (-)
key to do negative counting. The (-) key is only used to delete an entry in accumulation mode that you want to
erase. This procedure does not affect the inventory quantity for this item stored in the scale.
To utilize the negative counting feature, set NEGCOUNT to “On” under the Count Menu and the regulatory
Note mode must be set to Industrial.
There are two ways to do this depending on whether you want to see the total amount remaining in the container or
the total amount removed from the container.
Scale Operations
61
Counting Out of a Full Container — See Total Amount Remaining in the Container
To carry out this operation you must know the tare weight ahead of time.
1. Place the full container on the scale. Press the TARE key.
2. Remove a 10 piece sample from the container and press the SAMPLE key. After the unit weight has been
calculated, return the sample to the container.
3. If you want to see how many are still in the bin, you first have to know the tare weight of the bin or
container. After removing the parts you want to take out of the bin, enter the tare weight of the bin and
press the TARE key. The scale will display how many parts were left in the bin. To print a label to put on the
bin showing the total quantity in the bin, press the PRINT key.
Negative Counting — Total Removed Displayed at the End
With this procedure you can count accurately out of a full container for kitting or shipping without having to know
the tare weight of the container.
1. Place a full container on the scale and press TARE.
2. Remove a 10 piece sample from the container and press SAMPLE. After the unit weight has been
calculated, return the sample to the container.
3. Remove the number of pieces you need for kitting or shipping. The amount removed will be displayed. If
you need a label for each kit or container, press the PRINT key after removing each batch of pieces.
5.5
IDs
IDs are used to save and recall previously set codes, descriptions, unit weight, and tare preferences. The
Counterpart has the capacity to store up to 150 individual IDs. There are three ways IDs can be entered and set:
1. Normal

WeighVault
WeighVault is a PC program that allows Counterpart users to add, edit, and access IDs over a network connection.
WeighVault surpasses the Counterpart's 150 ID limitation and eliminates front-panel entry of ID parameters. In and
Out softkeys can be used to update the ID quantity with inventory changes. Setting up softkeys is explained in
Section 1.7 on page 5. If WeighVault is enabled the inventory changes are also sent to the WeighVault PC.
It also collects data as transactions occur, and provides detailed transaction and productivity reports that can be
exported to Excel, Word, or PDF. For WeighVault to function, the following criteria must be met:
• Use onboard Ethernet or wireless option (PN72117 Ethernet TCP/IP Interface Installation and
Configuration Manual)
• IP address assigned to the Counterpart (Refer to PN72117 Ethernet TCP/IP Interface Installation and
Configuration Manual)
• WeighVault enabled in the Counterpart menu (ETHERNET menu; see Section 3.7.3 on page 42). Table 51 lists parameters that must be entered in order for WeighVault to work.

Totalization Counts
Counterpart has a totalization function that allows you to totalize the quantity of several weighings together. This is
especially helpful if putting together parts kits. The ID code is functional with totalization, count or weight.
For full operation of the totalization feature, configure the unit with the following softkeys:
TOTAL+
TOTALClear Total
To find the total accumulated quantity of similar containers filled with parts, use the totalization procedure detailed
below. Six containers are used in this example; all containers are of the same empty weight.
1. Conduct a sampling process to determine the unit weight of the pieces, or key in a known unit weight or
recall an ID.
2. Enter a known tare weight or place an empty container on the scale to perform tare function. If an ID was
recalled in step 1, its tare value is already loaded.
3. Place container 1 (full of parts) on the scale. The number of pieces in the container is shown in the PCS
area of the display.
4. Press the Total + softkey to store the number of pieces in container 1. The memory (M) icon is shown. The
net weight of the items in the containers is stored and the totalization count is incremented. The piece count
value is displayed. The total count is shown in place of the unit weight display, and it is labeled as Total
Weight ttl.
5. Remove container 1 and place container 2 (full of parts) on the scale.
6. Press the Total + softkey. The accumulated total is now equal to container 1 plus container 2. The displayed
total is also updated.
7. Continue with the remainder of the containers in the same totalization method. The total number of parts
stored in all six containers (and the weight of the parts in those containers) is now stored and shown on the
display.

An ID may be loaded while part totalization is being performed, the ID Quantity value is not affected by
the totalizations operations.
If a totalization has been started and the Code softkey is pressed — the unit will prompt Exit Totalization
Mode? with Yes and No softkeys. Pressing Yes clears the total, exits from totalization mode and brings up
the normal prompt for entering an ID code. If No is pressed, the unit does not prompt for an ID Code and
totalization can continue.
The user cannot switch to another scale during totalization. If the Unit Toggle key is pressed during
totalization, the message not allowed — totalizing will be displayed and the switch will not occur.
The user cannot switch units during totalization. If the Unit Toggle key is pressed during totalization, the
message not allowed - totalizing will be displayed and the switch will not occur.
During totalization an icon is displayed between the battery icon and the main display area label. The icon
is an uppercase M for memory.
For each totalization done (Total+ or Total-) a count will be incremented. This value can be printed. When
the total value is cleared and totalization mode is exited, the count will be cleared as well.
While in totalization mode, pressing the Print key will print the total format — TOTALFMT.
When attempting a totalization, a motion check can be performed based upon the setting of the TOTAL
parameter in the Feature/Count menu. If Total is ON and if there is motion, then one more attempt will be
made after two seconds. The default setting is OFF.
To clear the total value, press the Clear Total softkey, and it will clear the total value.

Parts Reduction Counts
Parts reduction can also be done by using the minus key while the scale is in the weighing mode and the memory
annunciator is on.
1. Conduct a sampling process to determine the unit weight of the pieces, or key in a known weight or recall
an ID.
2. Enter known tare weight, or place an empty container on the scale to perform tare function. If ID was
recalled in step one, its tare value is already loaded.
3. Place the container (full of parts) on the scale. The number of pieces in the container is shown in the PCS
area of the display.
4. Press the Total + softkey to store the number of pieces in the container. The memory (M) icon is shown. The
net weight of the items in the container is stored and the totalization count is incremented. The total piece
count value is shown in place of the piece weight value and will be labeled ttl. The total net weight is
shown in place of the normal ID Code: line - it is labeled as Total Weight.
5. Remove the number of parts required from the container and press the Total - softkey. The total piece count
value is now equal to the number of pieces removed. The number of pieces remaining in the container is
shown in the PCS area of the display. The total weight is now equal to the weight of the removed pieces.
6. Repeat step 5 as needed.
Note Once part reduction has been started, Pressing Total + will give you an error message.

Serial Commands
The Counterpart can be controlled by a PC or remote keyboard connected to an indicator serial port. Control is
provided by a set of serial commands that can simulate front panel key press functions, display and change setup
parameters, and perform reporting functions. This provides the ability to print configuration data or to save to your
hard drive.
6.1
The Serial Command Set
The serial 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 a serial command is processed, the Counterpart 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 Counterpart responds with ??.
The following sections list the commands and command syntax used for each of these groups.
6.1.1
Key Press Commands
Key press serial commands simulate pressing the keys on the front panel of the indicator. These commands can be
used in both setup and normal (weighing) mode. Several of the commands serve as “pseudo” keys, providing

Clear and Reset Commands
The following commands can be used to clear and reset the Counterpart:
RS: Reset system. Resets the indicator without resetting the configuration.
RESETCONFIGURATION: Restores all configuration parameters to their default values (menu mode only). The
RESETCONFIGURATION function can also be initiated by pressing navigating to the DEFALT parameter under the
VERS menu and selecting YES. Then press ENTER to reset the indicator.
Note All load cell calibration settings are lost when the RESETCONFIGURATION command is run.
CLEARBUFFER: Clears the Weighvault data buffer.
6.1.5
Parameter Setting Commands
Parameter setting commands allow you to display or change the current value for a particular configuration
parameter.
Current configuration parameter settings can be displayed in all modes using the following syntax:
command<ENTER>
Most parameter values can be changed in menu mode only.
Use the following command syntax when changing parameter values: command=value<ENTER>, where value is either
a number or a parameter value. Use no spaces before or after the equal (=) sign. If you type an incorrect command,
the display reads ??.
For example, to set the motion band parameter to 5 divisions, type the following:
SC.MOTBAND=5<ENTER>
For parameters with selectable values, enter the command and equal sign followed by a question mark:
command=?<ENTER> to see a list of those values. The indicator must be in menu mode to use this function.
Some parameters are valid only if other parameters or parameter values are specified. Restrictions for front-
Note panel configuration also apply to serial command configuration.

Print Formatting
The Counterpart provides nine print formats, GFMT, NFMT, TOTALFMT, PALFMT, CFMT, ACCFMT, SPFMT, HDRFMT1,
and HDRFMT2. These determine the format of the printed output when the PRINT key is pressed or when a KPRINT
EDP command is received. The HDRFMTs must be called from another format. The SPFMT (setpoint print format)
is printed from a setpoint routine.
Each print format can be customized to include up to 500 characters of information, two header formats are limited
to 100 characters each), such as company names and addresses, on printed tickets. You can use the indicator front
panel (PFORMT menu), EDP commands, or the Revolution® configuration utility to customize the print formats.
Note
7.1
Print formats are limited to 500 characters. The two header formats are limited to 100 characters
each.
Print Formatting Commands
Table 7-1 on page 80 lists commands you can use to format the gross, net and count 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.

SPFMT
Gross, net, and tare weights are 8 digits in length, including sign and decimal point, followed by a space and a one- to five-digit
units identifier. Total field length with units identifier is 10-14 characters. Depending on what units are configured, the units
identifier will be lb, oz, g, or kg.
Gross, net, tare, and accumulator weights can be printed in any configured weight units by adding the following modifiers to the
gross, net, tare, and accumulator weight commands: /P (primary units), /D (displayed units), /S (secondary units), /T (tertiary
units). If not specified, the current displayed units (/D) is assumed. Example: To format a ticket to show net weight in secondary
units, use the following command: <N/S>.
UNIT 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 WA command, the indicator sends unformatted data until the next WA command is received. Unformatted
data omits decimal points, leading and trailing characters.

Table 7-2. Default Print Formats
The 500-character limit of each print format string includes the output field length of the print formatting
Note 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. The two header formats as limited to 100 characters each.
The default Counterpart print formats are shown in Table 7-2 and Table 7-3:

Customizing Print Formats
The following sections describe procedures for customizing the GFMT, NFMT and CFMT formats using the EDP
port, the front panel (PFORMT menu), and the Revolution® configuration utility.
7.2.1
Using the EDP Port
With a personal computer, terminal, 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.FMT or NFMT.FMT) and press TARE
(Enter). For example, to check the current configuration of the GFMT.FMT format, type GFMT.FMT and press ENTER.
The indicator responds by sending the current configuration for the gross format:
GFMT.FMT=<G> GROSS<NL>
To change the format, use the GFMT.FMT 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:
Note Indicator must be placed in the configuration mode with CONFIG shown on the display.
GFMT.FMT=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:
FINE TRANSFER CO
32400 WEST HIGHWAY ROAD
SMALLTOWN
1345 lb GROSS
7.2.2
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 7-1) to customize the print formats.

7.2.3
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.
Figure 7-2 shows an example of the Revolution print formatting grid.

Using the XE and XEH EDP Commands
The XE and XEH EDP commands can be used to remotely query the Counterpart for the error conditions shown
on the front panel. The XE command returns a 5-digit number in the format:
xxxxx
where xxxxx
contains a decimal representation of any existing error conditions as described in Table 9-2.
The XEH command returns a value in the format:
0xnnnnnnnn
where nnnnnnnn contains a hexadecimal representation of any existing conditions as described in Table 9-2.
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).

Digital Filtering
The Counterpart 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 9-2 shows the digital filter parameters on the CONFIG menu.

9.6.1 DIGFLx Parameters
The first three digital filtering parameters, DFLTR1, DFLTRL2, and DFLTR3, 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 9-3).
The overall filtering effect can be expressed by adding the values assigned to the three filter stages:
DFLTR1 + DFLTR2 + DFLTR3
For example, if the filters are configured as DFLTR1=4, DFLTR2=8, DFLTR3=8, the overall filtering effect is 20
(4 + 8 + 8). With this configuration, each A/D reading has a 1-in-20 effect on the displayed weight value. Setting
the filters to 1 effectively disables digital filtering.
9.6.2 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.
94
Counterpart Counting Scale Indicator
9.6.3 Setting the Digital Filter Parameters
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 menu mode, set all three digital filters (DFLTR1, DFLTRL2, DFLTR3) 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 menu mode and set the digital filters (DFLTRx) to eliminate the vibration effects on
the scale. (Leave DFTHRH set to NONE.) Reconfigure as necessary to find the lowest effective values for
the DFLTRx parameters.
4. With optimum values assigned to the DFLTRx parameters, calculate the DFTHRH parameter value by
converting the weight value recorded in Step 2 to display divisions:
threshold_weight_value / DSPDIV
In the example in Step 2, with a threshold weight value of 50 lb and a display division value of 5lb: 
50 / 5lb = 10DD. 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.
9.6.4 Audit Trail Support
Audit trail support provides tracking information for configuration and calibration events. To prevent potential
misuse, all configuration and calibration changes are counted as change events.
Use the Audit menu or Revolution to display audit trail information. This includes the legally relevant (LR) version
number (software version for the code that provides audit trail information), a calibration count and a configuration
count.
Audit trail information can be printed from Revolution or by sending the DUMPAUDIT serial command.

USB Keyboard Interface
The USB interface option board provides a type-A connection for a USB keyboard interface. To use the keyboard
interface, set the serial input function for Port 3 (found under the SERIAL menu — see Figure 3-22 on page 51) to
KEYBOARD.
Table 9-4 summarizes the Counterpart specific functions provided by the keyboard interface, most other
alphanumeric and navigational keys provide functions equivalent to those typical for PC operation. Menu
parameters and serial commands that affect the indicator keypad operation (including KBDLCK, ZERONLY, and
KLOCK serial commands also affect the remote keyboard.

Serial Scale Interface
Serial port 1 can be configured for serial scale input. The serial scale function allows other scale indicators to send
gross, or net weight data to Counterpart. Once the serial port has been configured to accept scale data, the data
format can be customized to match the data stream sent by that indicator. See Figure 3-22 on page 51 for setup
information.
To set up and configure a serial scale:
1. Under the SERIAL menu, select Port 1 and scroll over to IND SC (industrial serial scale) or SCALE
(Legal-for-Trade), depending on what is required. This enables Scale 3. For operation with the counting
functions, set type to IND SC.
2. Match the baud rates (9600), data bits and parity, and stop bits. This becomes SCALE 3.
3. Set the format under the SFMT parameter to match the format sent by the serial scale.
An example of the default serial scale format is:
<STX><P><W7><U><M><S><CR>

9.10.1 Legal for Trade and Normal Weight Mode
When in a Legal for Trade mode (REGULAT = NTEP, OIML, or CANADA) and the unit is in normal weigh mode:
• If the weight is displayed in the main area (either as a result of the DSPMODE parameter being set for
WEIGHT or the Swap Display softkey was pressed) then the piece count and unit weight are not
displayed.
98
•
If the piece count is displayed in the main area (either as a result of the DSPMODE parameter being set
for COUNT or the Swap Display softkey was pressed) then the weight is not displayed. The unit
weight will be displayed in the left display area.
•
If the unit weight is displayed in the main area (either as a result of the DSPMODE parameter being set
for UNITWEIGHT or the Swap Display softkey was pressed) then the weight is not displayed. The
piece count will be displayed in the left display area.
Counterpart Counting Scale Indicator
9.10.2 Legal for Trade and Totalization Mode
When in Legal for Trade mode (REGULAT = NTEP, OIML, or CANADA) and the unit is in Totalization mode:
• If the weight is displayed in the main area (either as a result of the DSPMODE parameter being set for
WEIGHT or the Swap Display softkey was pressed) then the piece count and piece count total are not
displayed.
•
If the piece count is displayed in the main area (either as a result of the DSPMODE parameter being set
for COUNT or the Swap Display softkey was pressed) then the weight is not displayed. The piece
count total will be displayed in the left display area.
•
If the piece count total is displayed in the main area (either as a result of the DSPMODE parameter
being set for UNITWEIGHT or the Swap Display softkey was pressed) then the weight is not
displayed. The piece count will be displayed in the left display area.
9.11 Updating Firmware
To update firmware of the Counterpart, you must have Revolution installed and a .hex file on your computer. Visit
www.ricelake.com to download this free configuration software and the latest .hex file.
If the hex file is the same version as is currently in the indicator, the firmware update will not reset the
Note configuration. This is helpful if the firmware becomes corrupt and you want to reload the same firmware.
However, it is always recommended that configuration be backed up in Revolution to avoid any data loss.
1. Unplug power to the Counterpart and remove top from the base of the unit.
2. Wire the serial cable to the Counterpart’s Port 1. Refer to Table 9-7 for cable connection settings.
