1. INTRODUCTION
This manual was created to help you install and learn all about the functional possibilities of the purchased indicator.
The instrument is suitable for use in various weighing environments.
Not only does it have all the normal features of high-precision scales, but it also gives you the possibility to work in specific
environments due to the functioning modes contained in the software implemented in the FLASH MEMORY on the internal
board; this makes the instrument extremely flexible and it can be used in many different industrial applications linked to
weighing. The double numerical and interactive alphanumerical display, the alphanumerical and function keyboard, allow
the operator an easy and immediate use and provide the microcontroller with DATA ENTRY functions in addition to the
normal weighing functions. The input/output allows the instrument to control various external devices, to receive external
commands, control a printer and communicate with a personal computer or to be inserted in a network of weight indicators
controlled by a PC.
WARNING
Please note that this instrument is covered by a warranty and MUST NOT BE OPENED BY THE USER for any reason
whatsoever. Any attempt to repair or modify the unit exposes the user to the risk of electric shock and will invalidate the
entire warranty.
If any problems are found in the unit or with the system in which it is used, the fact must be communicated to the
manufacturer or the dealer from whom it was purchased.
In any case, DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY before taking any action.
With the 6V rechargeable battery option, it has to be completely recharged (12 hours) in the first installation of the

ABS MODEL
3.3 POWER SUPPLY & START UP
- The 3590E indicator is powered with 12Vdc voltage ( 8 ÷ 24 Vdc with I/O expansion board connected ), through an
internal adapter which converts the 100 ÷ 240Vac, 50÷60Hz mains voltage, and 6 Vdc from the fitted battery. TO POWER
the instrument through the 240 Vac mains, or TO RECHARGE the battery, insert the plug and the adapter to the 240 Vac
mains socket..
- The CPWE indicator is powered with 8÷24 Vdc voltage or a 6 Vdc optional battery.
To connect the indicator to the power mains, the safety regulations must be observed, including the use of a "clean" line
without disturbances or interference caused by other electronic equipment.
The battery inside the indicator lasts about 25 hours (without the expansion board, with 1-cell platform) and a recharging
time of about 12 hours.

instrument carries out a series of checking and preheating self tests.
- E-AF03 - XX”
name of the installed software, in which XX identifies the software language.
XX.YY
is the software version installed.
- “EXECUTION AUTOZERO”
The instrument carries out the "autozero at start-up” function: if a weight is detected within the percentile set in the << Auto0 >> step (TECH.MAN.REF.), it is cleared; if the weight is not within this tolerance:
- with a non approved instrument, the display shows the weight after a few instants,
- with an approved instrument, the message “EXECUTION AUTOZERO” appears continuously on the display, until the
weight is within tolerance.

3.4 TURNING ON PRINTER IN ENERGY SAVING MODE
In a system where the indicator is connected to a printer, both are battery powered, the printer is normally maintained in
STAND-BY and powered only when a printout is needed. This function reduces the energy absorbed by the battery when
the printer is not being used.
If, in this configuration, one should power the printer to change the paper and other maintenance jobs, one needs to press
in sequence the ENTER and 0 keys during the weighing: the display shows Prn - on, and the printer is kept on. Press any
key to exit from this condition.

5.1 FUNCTIONING WITH REMOTE SCALE
PREMISE: the functioning of the remote scale is foreseen with the use of independent channels (tYPE step,
TECH.MAN.REF.).
The remote scale transmits in a continuous mode the weight string on a dedicated serial port (optional), in a unidirectional
(from scale to indicator).
It is possible to use the serial ports on the indicator’s motherboard simultaneously with the use of the remote scale.
In the normal scale status, press the 2ndF and 0 keys to pass to the display of the weight on the remote scale.
If just the remote scale is connected, after the start-up phase, the indicator positions itself directly on it.
If the remote scale allows this, it is possible to carry out the ZERO and TARE operations directly from the indicator.
It is possible to carry out all the weighing procedures described in section 13 (also using the databases), or print the
displayed weight.
For the connection refer to the technical manual of the instrument (TECH.MAN.REF.).
CONFIGURATION OF THE REMOTE SCALE
See the manual of the remote scale.
CONFIGURATION OF THE INDICATOR
Refer to the technical manual for programming the indicator (SEtuP >> SEriAL >> CoMAuX >> rEM.SCA step
TECH.MAN.REF.).
20
E-AF03
5.2 “A+B” FUNCTION
“A+B” function allows you to perform weighing operations on each scale or on their sum; the function have to be enable in
step F.ModE >> totAL >> WEi.Mod >> nor.WGt (TECH.MAN.REF.).
To display the sum of two scales, press in sequence the 2ndF and 3 keys, the LCD display shows:
where “Σ” indicates the sum of two scales.
NOTES
• One can select in every time scale 1 or scale 2 by pressing in sequence 2ndF and 1 or 2ndF and 2 keys.
• The total capacity/division corresponds to the sum of each scale capacity/division.
• The overload signalling always corresponds to each scale capacity + 9e.
• The function is available for “single vehicle” functioning mode.
• The maximum insertable value of manual tare is always equal to each scale capacity.
• The manual tare is the same for all the scales: the value is shown on LCD display, while display always shows the
gross weigh.
• The semiautomatic tare is disabled (on each scale too).
At start-up the indicator places itself on A+B status.
5.3 WEIGHING WITH TWO SCALES: SELECTING INPUT/OUTPUT SCALES
Since it is possible to connect a second scale, in the F.ModE >> totAL >> i.o.SCA SET INPUT/OUTPUT SCALES”
parameter of the TECHNICAL SET-UP (TECH.MAN.REF.), one sets how to use the two scales:
•
By selecting “SEt.i.o1” one sets the first scale (in other words the one connected to the terminal board or to channel
1) as INPUT, and the second one (in other words the one connected to channel 2) as OUTPUT.
•
By selecting “SEt.i.o2” one sets the first scale as INPUT as well as OUTPUT.
•
By selecting “FrEE” one can freely use the two scales as: INPUT in the first / OUTPUT in the second, and vice
versa, or INPUT/OUTPUT in the first or INPUT/OUTPUT in the second.
6. SCALE ZERO FUNCTION
With various scales connected, select the scale using the numerical keyboard, using the 2ndF and the 0, 1, 2 and 3 keys.
Keep the ZERO key pressed; the message "Zero" appears on the display after which:
- If the weight on the scale is included in the percentage configured in the << 0.PErC >> (RIF.MAN.T.) step, it is zeroed;
- If the weight is not within this range, it will not be cleared and an error sound is emitted.
In the end the indicator automatically returns to the display of the weight present on the scale.
NOTE:
If the cyclical automatic zero has been set at the start-up (in the SEtuP >> ConFig >> ParaM >> Auto 0 step of the setup,
TECH.MAN.REF.), by pressing the combination of the 2ndF and ZERO keys, a zero cycle is executed in all the current
scales.
21
E-AF03
7. TARE FUNCTIONS
7.1 SEMIAUTOMATIC TARE
By pressing the TARE key one tares any weight which is on the scale; the display shows “tArE” for an instant and then 0
(net weight); the NET and T
, or , indicators turn on; the LCD display shows furthermore the stored tare value.
Whatever the case, a new operation automatically cancels and substitutes the previous one.
NOTES:
- The automatic tare is acquired only if the weight is of AT LEAST ONE DIVISION AND IS STABLE (~ instability indicator is
off) and VALID (In other words the OVERLOAD condition must not be created).
- In the “vehicle with trailer” and in the “A+B” functioning modes, the semiautomatic tare is inhibited.
7.2 PRESET TARE
To enter the tare value, one can do it in several ways:
1) With the keyboard type the value (including the decimal point) and press TARE.
The C key quickly zeros the current value.
2) Select a vehicle linked to a tare different than 0.
The indicator automatically subtracts the entered value from the displayed weight, (the NET and T
, or , indicators
turn on), as long as it is not greater than the instrument’s maximum capacity.
The LCD display shows furthermore the stored tare value, identified with “PT” (Preset Tare).
NOTES
- In the printout, the manual tare is identified with “PT” (Preset Tare).
- In the “vehicle with trailer” and in the “A+B” functioning modes, the display in any case shows the gross weight also in
the presence of a manual tare.
7.3 MANUAL CALCULATED TARE
With the “CALCULATOR” function it is possible to add or to subtract to the current tare the result of the operation between
two values enterable with the keyboard.
For the functioning specifications see the 15.1 CALCULATOR section.
7.4 TARE CANCELLATION
To cancel the stored tare:
- With an unloaded platform, press the TARE key.
- With loaded platform press in sequence the numeric 0 key and TARE.
Press the C key (CAREFUL: this operation cancels also the executed reference).
7.5 LOCKED/UNLOCKED TARE
Normally, when a tare value has been entered (automatically, manually or from storage) by unloading the scale plate, the
display shows the tare value with a negative sign (LOCKED TARE). One can also choose that the tare value is cancelled
automatically, each time that the scale is unloaded (UNLOCKED TARE):
CONDITIONS FOR AUTOMATIC UNLOCKING:
In case of SEMIAUTOMATIC TARE, the net weight before the scale unloading may also be 0.
In case of MANUAL TARE, CALCULATED TARE or FROM DATABASE, the net weight before the scale unloading
must be of at least 2 stable divisions.
22
E-AF03
By pressing at length the F5 key it is possible to quickly lock/unlock the tare:

UNLOCKED TARE
The setting of the tare may be made also in the “TARE LOCKED/UNLOCKED” SEtuP >> tArE t parameter of the
TECHNICAL SETUP, TECH.MAN.REF.
7.6 LIMITATION OF THE TARE FUNCTIONS
For specific requirements, it is possible to limit the functions of the tare with approved instrument; by setting “YES” in the
SEtuP >> d.SALE step of the SET-UP environment (TECH.MAN.REF.):
- the SEMIAUTOMATIC TARE can not be modified with a manual or calculated tare, or one from database.
- the manual or calculated tare, or one from database must be entered or modified only with UNLOADED scale.
With approved instrument, the SEtuP >> d.SALE step is read only.
7.7 TARE EXECUTION MODE OR DISABLING OF THE TARE
It’s possible to select the tare execution mode, through the setting of the F.ModE >> totAL >> tArE step
(TECH.MAN.REF.):
- By setting "diSAbL" one disables all the tare operations;
- By setting "Lock" or “Unlock”, all the tare operations described in section 7.5 are enabled.
7.8 LINKING A PRESET TARE TO A VEHICLE IN THE DATABASE
It is possible to link a tare value to each article of the vehicle database; this tare value will be enabled with each vehicle
selection.
See section 11.3 for further details.
8. MULTIRANGE AND MULTIDIVISION FUNCTION
The multi range functioning allows to subdivide the scale capacity in two or three ranges, each which is up to 3000
divisions, improving in this way the first range division in the dual range and the first two ranges in the triple range.
For example it is possible to approve the weighing system with:
- A single range: 6 kg capacity and 2 g division (3000 div.).
- Dual range: 6 /3 kg capacity and 2/1 g division (3000 + 3000 div.).
- Triple range: 15 / 6 / 3 kg capacity and 5/2/1 g division (3000 + 3000 + 3000 div.).
NOTE: For the approval of the weighing system in dual and triple ranges the cell must have better technical features in
comparison to the cell used for the approval in a single range.
This functioning is indicated by the turning on of the indicator which identify the range in which one is working: W1 first
range, W2 second range, W3 third range (if configured); by passing to the W2 range, the second range division is enabled;
by passing to the W3 range, the third range division is enabled, at this point the W1 first scale division is restored only by
passing the gross zero of the scale.
The multidivisional functioning is similar to multirange, but with the difference that a range division is enabled as soon as
one enters in its range interval (in other words without passing by the scale zero).
NOTE: The selection of the range number with multirange and multidivisional functioning is made during the indicator
calibration (TECH.MAN.REF.).
23
E-AF03
9. DISPLAY OF METRIC DATA (inFO)
The indicator is fitted with a function named “INFO”, thanks to which it is possible to view the configuration metric data:
- First range capacity, first range minimum weigh, first range division.
- Second range capacity, second range minimum weigh, second range division.
- Third range capacity, third range minimum weigh, third range division.
NOTES:
- The minimum weigh corresponds to 20 net weight divisions.
- The data of the second and third range appear only if actually configured.
To display the metric data:
- Press in sequence the 2ndF and C key
- “METROLOGIC INFORMATION” is displayed
- The display will show the number of the scale, the type of displayed data and its value.
- Press the F6 key to quickly scroll the following data
- Press the F7 key to quickly scroll the previous data backwards.
- Press the C key to quickly return to weighing.
10. FILLING IN THE INPUT TEXT
The indicator offers the possibility of using 15 CONFIGURABLE INPUT TEXTS (for example LOT, OPERATOR, SHIFT,
etc.), each made up of 16 heading characters and 32 content characters.
When entered in the TECHNICAL SET-UP (see F.ModE >> tXt “Input text configuration” parameter, TECH.MAN.REF.),
these may be printed later on, if programmed in the printouts; or these may be used as a reminder.
To manually fill in the input texts it is possible to proceed in two ways:
1) If one knows the memory storage position (from 0 to 14) of the text to be modified, type the number, followed by
the F4 key: now enter the text and confirm with ENTER (the indicator returns to the weighing phase).
2) By pressing for an instant the F4 key, one accesses the complete list of the texts, for example:
- The LCD display shows “in. XX” in the first line, in which XX is the index of the free text (from 0 to 14) and
THE HEADING on the second line (or “Empty…” if empty).
- Use the arrow keys to select the text to be filled in and press ENTER: now one can enter the
alphanumeric text in the second line of the LCD display, (see chapter 4.1.2 ENTERING ALPHANUMERIC
TEXT).
- Press ENTER to store and pass on to the following stored TEXT; by confirming the last entered text one
returns automatically to the weigh functioning; it is possible to exit also with the C key while in the text
selection modification phase.
NOTE:
• The entered texts remain in storage until these are substituted or cancelled.
• If no text has been configured, the pressing of the F4 key has no effect.
• Through specific print macros, it’s possible to automatically cancel the contents of all the texts, right after their printing
(TECH.MAN.REF.).
• For information on the entry of the alphanumeric texts, see section “4.1.2 ENTERING ALPHANUMERIC TEXT”.

13. WEIGHING PROCEDURES
13.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SYSTEM
Besides the basic standard weighing function, this 3590E-AF03 version allows to keep under control the flow of goods in
input and output from a warehouse or a factory, with the possibility of simultaneously managing up to 999 vehicles, also on
two scales; these vehicles can be managed as single vehicles or as vehicles with trailer.
To guarantee correlation between the two operations, the system foresees two identification methods: through ID code or
through the LICENSE PLATE of the vehicle.
The implementation of external modules like the PC keyboard, the bar code or badge readers, allows to quicken the
weighing operations; furthermore through the “MASTER - SLAVE” function it’s possible to manage the weighing system
also from a second remote indicator.
Furthermore, the programme has been made to manage the accumulation and the printing of the of the weight difference.
The weight difference is automatically accumulated in the instrument totals (PARTIAL, GENERAL, GRAND TOTAL), and
the weighs’ progressives are automatically increased relative to the previously shown totals.
Furthermore, if a customer/material/vehicle has been enabled, the instrument increases both the totals as well as the
weighs’ progressive relative to the selected article.
13.2 WEIGHING THROUGH ID CODE
NOTE: the functioning mode must be enabled: set F.ModE >> totAL >> WEi.MEM step of the SETUP environment on
“WEi.Cod” (TECH.MAN.REF.).
In this functioning mode, the indicator links each input weigh to the lowest available ID (from 1 to 999); consequently, if an
output weigh is executed correctly, the relative ID code will be made available for the following input weigh.
It’s possible to have the ID code of the input weigh to be always consequential (therefore also if an ID lower than the last
one stored is available) by setting the F.ModE >> totAL >> Pro.LSt step in the set-up on “DISABLE”, TECH.MAN.REF.
13.2.1 INPUT WEIGH
13.2.1.1 Single vehicle
(F.ModE >> totAL >> WEi.Mod step set on “nor.WGt”, TECH.MAN.REF.)
-
Position the vehicle on the scale.
Select, if requested, the customer / material / vehicle to be linked to the weigh.
Press the F6 key, the LCD display will show:

READING WEIGHT
SECOND WEIGH?
ENTER=YES C=NO
Or, if one has configured TWO SCALES:
SECOND WEIGH? C=NO
1=SCL.1
2=SCL.2
At this point one should position the trailer on the scale, wait a few instants for the weight stability.
By pressing ENTER it is possible to:
- CONFIRM THE SAME
PLATFORM
- CHANGE PLATFORM:
If the F.Mode >> totAL >> C.EntEr parameter of the setup is set on
“ConFEr” (CONFIRM SCALE), TECH.MAN.REF.
If the F.Mode >> totAL >> C.EntEr parameter of the setup is set on
“inVErt” (INVERT SCALE), TECH.MAN.REF.
Note: It is in any case possible to change the platform by pressing the 1 key for platform 1 or the 2 key for platform 2.
In the printout, the trailer weight will be shown on the side (“TRAILER” item), right after the trailer weight (“INPUT” item). By
pressing C the weigh will be carried out anyways, but only the trailer weight will be taken into consideration and printed
(“INPUT” item).
NOTES ON INPUT WEIGHING
•
If there is a tare, a SINGLE WEIGH is executed, therefore no ID code is occupied.
•
If all the 999 memory storages are occupied without executing any output weigh, upon the execution of the
following input weigh, the indicator shows the message “WEIGHS MEMORY FINISHED”; one must execute at least
one output weigh in order to free up the memory to be used.
To cancel all the memory storages, go to the Prn.ViS >>> 0.W.List step in the menu of the ENTER key.
If one needs to execute a simple weigh without any input/output weigh and databases, we advise to use the
print key, in order to not occupy ID codes.
•
If the output weigh has been made with a selected vehicle, one should execute the output weigh in order to reuse
the same vehicle in a new weigh (the LCD display shows “PLATE ALREADY PRESENT!”).

13.4 CONDITIONS FOR TOTALISATION
With APPROVED instrument:
- the INPUT or OUTPUT weigh functions with a minimum weight of 20 divisions and reactivates according to how the
F.ModE >> rEACt. “REACTIVATIONS” parameter of the TECHNICAL SET-UP has been programmed
(RIF.MAN.T.), in other words the weight movement or passage by zero of the weight; furthermore the F6 key
excludes the F7 and the printout keys and vice versa.
- the totalisation excludes the simple print function and vice versa.
With NON APPROVED instrument:
- the INPUT or OUTPUT weigh functions with a weight greater than zero and reactivates according to how the
F.ModE >> rEACt. “REACTIVATIONS” parameter of the TECHNICAL SET-UP (TECH.MAN.REF.) has been
programmed; furthermore the F6 key excludes the F7 key and vice versa.
- the totalisation does not exclude the simple print function.
39
E-AF03
13.5 ADDITIONAL TARE FUNCTION
This function is useful if one wants to calculate the loaded/unloaded weight at the net of a tare added to the weight of the
vehicle taken into consideration.
By enabling the function in the F.ModE >> totAL >> Add.tAr step, it’s possible to have that, upon the output weigh, one is
asked to enter an additional tare, which will be subtracted from the loaded/unloaded weight value in the weigh.
After the pressing of the F7 key and the selection of the “open” weigh in input, one enters the calculator environment (the
LCD display shows the message “ADDITIONAL TARE”).
Procedure:
With the numerical keyboard enter the first value then
• Press Fn in order to consider this value as an additional tare
or
• Press F1 to add, F2 to multiply, F3 to subtract:
- With the numeric keyboard enter the second value of the operation.
- PRESS ENTER: the result will be shown for a few seconds on the display.
The printing of the “CALCULATOR” print function will not be made, but one proceeds with the printing of the output weigh.
The result of the additional tare is automatically subtracted from the loaded or unloaded weight.
13.6 SET WEIGH THRESHOLD
It is possible to establish a weight interval (in between 0 and the scale capacity) for executing an input or output weigh;
outside this interval, the operation is not accepted (when the F6 or F7 key is pressed the LCD display shows the “WEIGHT
OUT OF THRESHOLD” message for a few seconds.
•
•
Through the 500 function, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.), it’s possible to
access the “thr.hi" menu (Maximum Threshold Setting): set the upper totalisation threshold and press ENTER.
Through the 501 function, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.), it’s possible to
access the “thr.Lo" menu (Minimum Threshold Setting): set the lower totalisation threshold and press ENTER.
NOTES:
- By setting 0 in the maximum threshold, it’s possible to totalise up to the maximum capacity of the scale.
- By setting 0 in both thresholds, the functions are disabled.
- The totalisation field is valid for all totalisation types (input/output and single weigh).
13.7 REENABLING THE PRINTING AND INPUT / OUTPUT WEIGH
After having carried out an input/output weigh or a single weigh, in order to carry out a new one, the displayed weight must
pass by the zero or become unstable.
This setting is made in the SETUP environment, in the F.ModE >> rEACt. parameter (TECH.MAN.REF.).
While using the indicator, one may incur in the “WEIGHT NOT PASSED BY 0 OR UNSTAB.” error shown on the LCD
display, this means that the function which one wants to carry out, must be reenabled (in order to avoid accidental
executions).
In any case, one can also exclude this type of check: in order to do this, one should set “ALWAYS” in the F.ModE >> totAL
>> t.ModE step (TECH.MAN.REF.)

By recalling one of the clearing functions, the instrument requests a confirmation before proceeding with the cancellation:
press ENTER to clear, C for continuing to accumulate.
It’s possible to disable the confirmation request, in the F.ModE >> totAL >> rESEt step, TECH.MAN.REF.
In case of visualisation of the total, the instrument automatically exits the function after a few seconds.
NOTES:
- The weight data of the cleared total will be updated only with the subsequent input/output weigh or single weigh.
- The ARTICLE TOTAL is article specific, in other words, there is a total for EACH ARTICLE USED.
The other totals are GENERIC, and can be cleared INDEPENDENTLY ONE FROM THE OTHER (i.e. if one clears the
Grand total, with the following input/output weigh, the other totals will continue to increment, while the Grand total will
restart from 0).
By clearing the weighs’ list one obtains the clearing of all the “open” input weighs: By carrying out this operation all the
weighing operations under way are cancelled.
13.9 PROGRESSIVES
13.9.1 PROGRESSIVE DIGITS
Through function 401, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.), it’s possible to set the
number of digits with which the TICKET PROGRESSIVE and LOT PROGRESSIVE are printed.
The number of settable digits varies from 4 to 16, organised in this way:
- if the actual digits of the total are less than the number of digits set in this step, the difference is filled with some
spaces.
- if the actual digits are greater than the number of digits set in this step, only the ones actually entered are taken into
consideration (counting from right to left).
The alignment of the total fields is on the left.
NOTE: The number of settable digits DOES NOT INCLUDE the comma.
13.9.2 TICKET PROGRESSIVE
Through function 402, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.), it’s possible to modify or
clear the TICKET PROGRESSIVE (up to 5 digits).
The TICKET PROGRESSIVE is a progressive number which increments of one UPON THE FIRST TOTALISATION
SUBSEQUENT TO THE CLEARING OF THE PARTIAL TOTAL.
41
E-AF03
13.9.3 LOT PROGRESSIVE
Through function 403, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.), one obtains the clearing of
the AUTOMATIC LOT (up to 6 digits); before carrying out the actual clearing, one is asked to confirm or cancel the
operation; confirm with ENTER.
The AUTOMATIC LOT is a progressive number which increments of one UPON THE FIRST TOTALISATION
SUBSEQUENT TO THE CLEARING OF THE GENERAL TOTAL..
14. PRINTOUTS
The instrument is fitted with 12 different print functions, which may be used while weighing, and of 30 print formats, in other
words, 30 different memory storages, each of which contain a programmable printout.
The print executed by 12 of these functions depends on the print format linked to it; see the following section for the
linkages.
The format linking function allows executing various printouts, by changing the linked format each time.
The available functions are:
SIMPLE PRINTOUT
- Programmable printout Through the F5 key one prints the linked format, without executing the input/output weigh or single weigh.
With the APPROVED instrument:
- The printing works if there is a NET WEIGHT of at least 20 divisions.
- The printout is reenabled depending on how the F.ModE >> rEACt parameter has been programmed in the
TECHNICAL SET-UP (TECH.MAN.REF.).
- The simple print function excludes the totalisation and vice versa.
With the NON APPROVED instrument:
- The printing works if there is a NET WEIGHT greater than zero.
- The simple printout does not exclude the totalisation and is always active (the programming of the F.ModE >>
rEACt parameter of the TECHNICAL SET-UP TECH.MAN.REF. is not taken into consideration).
INPUT WEIGH
- Programmable printout With the F6 key one prints the data relative to the INPUT WEIGH (format linked to the S.F.06 function), or to the
SINGLE WEIGH (format linked to the S.F.05 function) in case the known tare has been entered.
For the totalisation conditions, see section 13.4.
- Programmable printout OUTPUT WEIGH
With the F7 key one prints the data relative to the OUTPUT WEIGH (format linked to the S.F.07 function) or to the
SINGLE WEIGH (format linked to the S.F.05 function) in the case that the known tare has been entered.
For the totalisation conditions, see section 13.4.
CUSTOMER TOTAL
- Programmable printout By pressing the 2nd F key followed by F1, the CUSTOMER TOTAL is printed and then cleared as well as the printing of the
format linked to the S.F.08 function. Please find below the default printout:

E-AF03
TOTAL OUTPUT WEIGHT = net weight of the quantity which has left the factory (in other words the sum of the net weights
less than zero [so with the input weight less than the output weight], of all the pairs and of the single weighs carried
out).
NET TOTAL = the net of all transactions (TOTAL OUTPUT WEIGHT minus the TOTAL INPUT WEIGHT).
WEIGHS TOTAL = number of weigh pairs (input weigh with relative output weigh) and of all the single weighs carried out.
MATERIAL TOTAL
- Programmable printout By pressing the 2nd F key followed by F2, the MATERIAL TOTAL is printed and then cleared as well as the printing of
the format linked to the S.F.09 function. Please find below the default printout:

- PRESS 2nd F: the NET weight on the scale will be used as a second value and the result will be shown for a few
seconds on the display.
In the end the printing of the “CALCULATOR” will be executed anyway (See section 14 PRINTOUTS).
To disable the calculator function, press the C key.
15.2 DISPLAY OF NET WEIGHT WITH SENSITIVITY X 10 (for testing use during calibration)
By pressing at length the F2 key one will view the net weight with sensitivity times 10 (press again at length the F2 key to
return to the normal visualisation).
NOTES:
- With approved indicator, the visualisation lasts about 5 seconds, after which it’s disabled.
- The printout can only be done when the indicator has the standard sensitivity.
15.3 SETTING DATE / TIME
By pressing at length the F3 key ‘it’s possible to quickly access the setting from the date / time of the instrument:
DAY ⇒ ENTER ⇒ MONTH ⇒ ENTER ⇒ YEAR ⇒ ENTER ⇒ HOUR ⇒ ENTER ⇒ MINUTES ⇒ ENTER.
15.4 SET-POINT FUNCTION
The indicator is fitted with a series of 4 signal outputs used for various types of operation, besides, through the I/O
expansion board (optional) it is possible to use another 12.
In the SEtuP >>outPut >> r.ConF menu (TECH.MAN.REF) it is possible to set the characteristics of each output which will
be used: normally open or normally closed; upon direct control or weight stability, with hysteresis or without, the functioning
mode.
It is also possible to set whether the enabling of the output excludes the check on the previous outputs (see the SEtuP >>
outPut >> r.ModE parameter).
NORMAL FUNCTIONING MODE
By setting the SEtuP >> outPut >> r.ModE parameter on “norMAL”, one configures the independent use of the outputs:
- the check is always made on all the set outputs
- the enabling of one of these does not provoke the disabling of the others.
SETPOINT ON THE GROSS WEIGHT
Functioning with hysteresis (rL.iSt “HYSTERESIS” parameter set as iSt.on)
By selecting this functioning mode the output function on the GROSS weight is activated; one enters two SET POINTS for
each output: a DISABLING one, which, when the gross weight is lower than it, disables the appropriate output; an
ENABLING one, which, when the gross weight is greater or equal than it, it enables the appropriate output. Through
function 202, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.), the SET POINT values are entered
(DISABLING and ENABLING) for each configured output:
- The display shows " S.1 on " (relay 1 ENABLING SETPOINT): press ENTER, enter the weight value with the keyboard
and confirm with ENTER (use the C key to quickly zero the current value).
- The display shows " S.1 oFF” (relay 1 DISABLING SETPOINT): press ENTER, enter the weight value with the
keyboard and confirm with ENTER (use the C key to quickly zero the current value).
- Proceed in the same way for the following outputs (if present).
- When finished programming the set points, exit with the C key.

The operating mode is the same as the previous one, except that just one SETPOINT is entered for each output ("S.1 on“);
for this purpose the access to the " S.1 oFF " parameter is inhibited.
NOTES
- If all the outputs have the “NONE” (none) functioning mode, the enabling of the 202 function has no effect.
- The DISABLING SETPOINT must be less or equal to the ENABLING ones; if a value greater than the ENABLING one
is entered and confirmed in the DISABLING SETPOINT, the indicator will set at 0 the set point, until a correct value is
entered.
If a value lower than the DISABLING one is entered and confirmed in the ENABLING SETPOINT, that value is
accepted, but the DISABLING SETPOINT is put at 0.
- The 0 value is valid on both the set point values.
- The SETPOINT check of the weight remains active on the present value even during the modification of the SET
POINT, until the new value is confirmed.
- At start-up, the relays are managed from when the weight is displayed and these take on the configuration set in the
set-up environment. These are not managed inside the technical set-up.
- In case of weight not valid (local or from remote scale) all the outputs will be disabled.
SET POINT ON THE NET WEIGHT
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function on the NET weight is enabled; the entry of the SET POINTS and the
specifications are the same as the functioning mode on the gross weight.
GROSS WEIGHT AT ZERO
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function on the GROSS weight at 0 is enabled.
NET WEIGHT AT ZERO
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function on the NET weight at 0 is enabled.
INSTABILITY
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function on the unstable weight is enabled.
TOTALISATION
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function is enabled after executing a single weigh or after an output weight (at
the end of an input/output cycle); the output remains enabled until the weigh is restored; in other words, by the passing by
zero of the net weight or by weight instability (see F.ModE >> rEACt “REACTIVATIONS” parameter of the TECHNICAL
SET-UP, TECH.MAN.REF.).
SET POINT ON THE PARTIAL TOTAL
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function is enabled on the sum between the NET weight on the scale and the
accumulated net partial total; the entry of the SET POINTS and the specifications are the same as the functioning mode on
the gross weight.
47
E-AF03
SET POINT ON THE GENERAL TOTAL
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function is enabled on the sum between the NET weight on the scale and the
accumulated net general total; the entry of the SET POINTS and the specifications are the same as the functioning mode
on the gross weight.
SET POINT ON THE GRAND TOTAL
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function is enabled on the sum between the NET weight on the scale and the
accumulated net grand total; the entry of the SET POINTS and the specifications are the same as the functioning mode on
the gross weight.
SETPOINT ON THE NEGATIVE NET WEIGHT
Functioning with hysteresis (rL.iSt “HYSTERESIS” parameter set as iSt.on)
By selecting this functioning mode the outputs function on the NEGATIVE NET weight is activated; one enters two
NEGATIVE SET POINTS for each output: a DISABLING one, which, when the NET weight is greater than it, disables the
appropriate output; an ENABLING one, which, when the NET weight is lower or equal than it, it enables the appropriate
output.
The entry and specifications are the same for the functioning mode on the gross weight.

The entry and specifications are the same for the functioning mode on the gross weight.
OPERATION MADE
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function is enabled after the execution of an input or output weigh; the relay
remains enabled until the weigh is restored; in other words, by the passing by zero of the net weight or by weight instability
(see F.ModE >> rEACt “REACTIVATIONS” parameter of the TECHNICAL SET-UP, TECH.MAN.REF.).
WEIGHT ACQUISITION
By selecting this functioning mode, the output function is enabled after the weight acquisition; the relay remains enabled
until the weigh is restored; in other words, by the passing by zero of the net weight or by weight instability (see F.ModE >>
rEACt “REACTIVATIONS” parameter of the TECHNICAL SET-UP, TECH.MAN.REF.).

E-AF03
CONTROL LIGHT
By selecting this functioning mode the output function on the NET weight is enabled: when the net weight is equal or
greater than the ENABLING SET POINT, the relay is disabled.
The relay is disabled until the execution of an input or output weight; after this, the relay is activated and remains activated
until the weight is lower than the ENABLING SET POINT, and the weight doesn’t surpass it once again.
If the relay is disabled and no input or output weight is made, the functioning is the same as that of the set point on the net
weight.
FUNCTIONING WITH 1 CONTROL LIGHT:

•
•
•
RED
R1, functioning with control light, normally CLOSED,
ENABLING SET POINT 10kg.
GREEN
R2, functioning with control light, normally OPEN,
ENABLING SET POINT 10kg.
The scale is unloaded and the vehicle is not yet positioned on the scale: the GREEN light turns on.
The vehicle is now positioned on the scale. When the ENABLING SET POINT is reached, the GREEN light
turns off and the RED light turns on.
After the execution of the input or output weight, the RED light turns off and the GREEN light turns back on.
The vehicle descends from the scale and the GREEN light continues to stay on.
It is possible to execute another input/output weigh with the same procedure.
FUNCTIONING WITH 2 CONTROLS LIGHT:
The functioning mode with 2 independents controls light is equal to the functioning previously decribed, with the
difference that it’s possible to manage 2 independents scales, each with one different control light.
SCALE 1
RED
R1, functioning with control light, normally CLOSED,
ENABLING SET POINT 10kg.
GREEN
R2, functioning with control light, normally OPEN,
ENABLING SET POINT 10kg.
SCALE 2
RED R3, functioning with control light for the second scale,
normally CLOSED, ENABLING SET POINT 10kg.
GREEN R4, functioning with control light for second scale,
normally OPEN, ENABLING SET POINT 10kg.
49
E-AF03
EXCLUSIVE FUNCTIONING MODE
By setting the SEtuP >> outPut >> r.ModE parameter on “EXCLuS”, one configures the exclusive use of the outputs:
- The check is made on all the set outputs starting from the last one (OUT16) to the first one (OUT1).
- When one of these is enabled the check on the previous ones is excluded.
By selecting this functioning mode and setting the set points in increasing order, one can create outputs activation ranges.
Example:
RELAY
rL. 1
rL. 2
rL. 3
rL. 4
SETPOINT
1.000 kg
2.000 kg
3.000 kg
4.000 kg
ACTIVATION RANGE
From 1.000 to 1.999
From 2.000 to 2.999
From 3.000 to 3.999
From 4.000 onwards.
In this case, if the weight reaches 2.500 kg, ONLY THE “rL. 2” OUTPUT IS ENABLED; if the weight reaches 4.500 kg,
ONLY THE “rL. 4” OUTPUT IS ENABLED.
50
E-AF03
16. ALIBI MEMORY
The alibi memory allows storing the executed weighs or the weights transmitted to the PC.
The stored values can then be recalled by the PC serial line or directly on the indicator’s LED display for a following check.
The data filed with each weigh or upon each weight transmission is:
- Gross weight
- Tare
- Unit of measure
- Number of selected scale
The memorisation of a weigh takes place:
• Following the reception of a command through the serial line, See section 16.2.1.
•
Upon the printing made with the F5 key or upon totalisation
By setting the SEtuP >> SEriAL >> CoMPrn >> ProtoC parameter on "Alibi" (TECH.MAN.REF.)
It’s possible also to transmit the string (weigh/ID) on the PC port, by setting the SEtuP >> SEriAL >> CoMPC >>
ProtoC parameter on "Alibi" (TECH.MAN.REF.);
The string is transmitted in the same format of the string received in response to the “WEIGHT VALUE REQUEST
WITH WEIGH ID” command, described in section 16.2.1
The identification of the weigh takes place through the ID code; a code is given to each weigh, allowing finding the weigh in
the database.
If the weight can be saved in the alibi, the numeric ID will be substituted with the message "NO".
The ID has the following format:
<Rewriting number > — < Weigh number >
- Rewriting number: number of 5 digits which may go from 0 to 00255; it indicates the number of complete rewritings of
the alibi memory.
- Weigh number: number of 6 digits which may go from 0 to 131071; it indicates the weigh number in the current rewriting
of the alibi memory
With each storage the weigh number is increased of 000001; when this reaches the value 131071, it restarts from 000000
and the rewriting number increases of 00001.
If the weigh can not be saved in the alibi, the numeric ID will be substituted with the message "NO".
For example:
If the weigh which has been stored is the following:
“PIDST,1,
1.000kg,
1.000kg,00126-131071”
the following will be:
“PIDST,1,
1.000kg,00127-000000”
1.000kg,
NOTE: it’s possible to read the last 131071 weighs.
51
E-AF03
16.1 READING OF THE WEIGHS CARRIED OUT
Through function 427, combinable with the desired key (<< F.KEYS >> step, TECH.MAN.REF.) it’s possible to read a
carried out weigh:
first enter the rewriting number of the Alibi memory (rEW.id), confirm with ENTER, and then enter the weigh number (id)
and press ENTER. The ID is accepted only if valid.
If the alibi memory is empty the message “EMPTY” appears on the LCD display for a few instants; if the ID code entered is
not valid, the “no id” message appears for a few instants, and then one exits the step.
By entering a valid ID code, the LCD display shows the following data, selectable through the arrow keys :
Ch.X
in which X is the selected channel number (from 0 to 4)
Gross weight value with unit of measure;
Tare weight value with unit of measure;
Press C to exit the reading state of the weighs.
NOTE: It is possible to read the weigh carried out also through the PC serial line (see the “WEIGH READING” serial
command in the following section).
16.2 SERIAL COMMANDS FOR MANAGING THE ALIBI MEMORY:
!! IMPORTANT !!
If the serial commands are transmitted in the format:
<ESC> command <STX>
in which: <ESC> is the ASCII decimal 27 character
<STX> is the ASCII decimal 02 character
Also the relative answer will be:
<ESC> string <STX>
16.2.1 REQUEST WEIGHT VALUE WITH WEIGH ID
The command which allows saving the weight in the alibi memory and the transmission is:
<II>PID<CRLF>
< II > = machine code, only if functioning in 485
PID = saving command of the weight data in the alibi memory
CR = ASCII 13 decimal code
LF = ASCII 10 decimal code
If the gross weight is equal or greater than zero and stable, the instrument will save the weight on the belt in the alibi
memory.
And the PID string (weight/id) will be transmitted on the PC port; this is described in the following section.
52
