).
13.1. Conditions of operational use
In order to assure a long term operating period with appropriate
measurements following principles should be adhered to:
• Avoid applying mechanical shocks to the weight pan:
• Loads should be placed in the centre of the pan (eccentric errors
are outlined in PN-EN 45501 chapter 3.5 and 3.6.2):
• Do not apply concentrated forces (all load in one point):
• Avoid side loads, particularly side strokes:

After placing a load on the weight pan net mass will be shown. Tarring is
possible within the whole range of the scale. After unloading the pan the
display shows the tarred value with minus sign.
You can also inscribe tare values to the product database. Every product has
a field “Tare”. In that case tare is automatically set to this value after selecting
the product.
Caution:
Tarring cannot be executed when a negative or zero value is being
displayed. In such case the following message will be displayed:

Means of operation:
• The bargraph consists of 8 red fields and three green fields.
• The green fields signal weighments between MIN and MAX
threshold, where:
MIN = the minimum threshold of acceptable weighment - LO
MAX = the maximum threshold of acceptable weighment - HI
• If a measurement is over the MIN (to the value of 1/3 of MIN-MAX) the
green field with a triangle on the left is visible. If the measurement is
between 1/3 and 2/3 of MIN-MAX the rectangular green field is visible.
If the measurement is between 2/3 of MIN-MAX and MAX a green field
with a triangle on the right is visible.
• If the mass value is below the MIN threshold red fields with red arrows

31.3. Carrying out density determination procedure
Working mode < Density> enables determining density in 4 different
methods, depending on material which density should be measured.
Methods of density determination: Liquid, Solids, Pycnometer, Porous
material.
31.3.1. Determining density of liquids
Density of liquid is determined by measuring mass of a sinker with
determined volume. First, the sinker has to be weighed in the air, and
then in liquid of which the density should be measured.
The difference between the two measurements is displacement weight,
which is used by scale software to calculate the density of tested liquid.
Before starting the measurement, the sinker’s volume should be inserted
to scale’s memory. The sinker’s volume is given on its hook.
166
Process course:
•
Press <
Local parameters> key to enter the setting of local
parameters in density mode.
•
Press <
Sinker volume> in order to insert the volume of the
3
sinker (given in [cm ]) which is immersed in the tested liquid.
•
On specifying the parameters exit to main menu of the density
mode by pressing
•
key.
In order to start density determination of liquid, press
<
Determine liquid density> key, using a pre-defined hot
keys on terminal’s display.
Caution:
Ask about sample number> function
If in the local parameters, <
is enabled, then on initiating the process, the system asks for inserting
the number of tested sample. The inserted sample number is linked to
the process data and saved in the database.
•
The first phase of the density determination of liquid is measurement
of sinker’s mass in the air. Place the sinker on the scale’s weighing
platform. On obtaining stable measurement result, accept it by
pressing
•
key.
Next, place on scale’s weighing platform tested liquid with immersed
sinker. On obtaining stable measurement result, carry out the
measuring process, and accept it by pressing
•
On carrying out the second measurement, the scale determines
density of tested liquid and indicates the result on terminal’s display.
If the user needs a report from the density determination process, it
can be printed on a plugged printer by pressing
density determination process is then completed.
•
key.
key. The
A report from density determination of liquid is saved in <
Density> database. The report is named by process date.
167
31.3.2. Determining density of solids
Density of solids is determined by weighing a solid object in two different
medium: in the air and in auxiliary liquid with determined density. The
difference between the two measurements is displacement weight, which
is used by scale software to calculate the density of tested solid.
Before starting the measurement select <
Local parameters> menu
and choose < Standard liquid> to be utilized in the density determination
process. Also determine the temperature of the auxiliary liquid. Declaring the
temperature of the auxuliary liquid enables matching its density to a table of
liquid densities. In case of selecting liquid type “Other”, its density value
should be specified in parameter <
Standard liquid density>. Here, the

31.3.3. Determining density of pycnometer
Pycnometer- it is a glass vessel which enables precise measurement of liquid
mass at a precisely determined volume. A measurement method applying a
pycnometer is one of the simplest means of determining density of liquids
(densimetric method).
The key component of a pycnometer is a ground-in stopper with dumped
capillary tube, which allows easy observation of the level of liquid contained
in the vessel. Before the measurement process, the pycnometer is
intentionally overfilled with tested liquid, then it is closed tightly with
a stopper and thermally stabilized.
169
The excess of liquid pouring through the capillary tube is removed with an
absorbent paper. Then, the vessel is immediately placed on a scale, and its
mass is determined as quickly as possible. During the mass measurement,
due to contraction of the volume of liquid its level usually Cautionably
decreases in the capillary tube, but this does not matter if at the time of
placing instrument on the scale, it was completely filled and had correct
temperature. Small diameter of the capillary tube prevents evapouration of
the liquid from the vessel, and therefore it does not affect the measurement
result.
Before starting the density determination using a pycnometer, data on its
volume and mass should be inserted to scale’s memory. If pycnometer’s
mass is not specified in the local parameters, than the process starts with
determining mass of an empty pycnometer.
Process course:
•
Press <
Local parameters> key to enter the setting of local
parameters in density mode.

43.3. Mathematical function
Extended functionality of the mathematical functions with use of a variable
<{5} Mathematical function> enables carrying out an optional operation on
numbers and variables available on the list. The basic available mathematical
functions are:
•
•
•
•
Adding (+)
Subtracting (-)
Multiplying (*)
Dividing (/)
The additional functionality provides using in the calculation the existing
variables, thus enabling acquiring mass from a specified weighing platform,
and its processing in a desired way.
An example:
{5: ([43:1] + [43:2]) / 2}
The above application of a variable <{43} Platform mass> causes acquiring
mass from a weighing platform determined in the formatter (:1 and :2), and
their dividing by 2 which enables taking the average mass from both weighing
platforms. Use of the brackets enables carrying out the operation in an
appropriate sequence and in accordance with basic matjematical principles.
Caution:
Variables in the structure of the mathematical operations are noted insquare
brackets [ ] and not as previously in { } brackets.
Additionally, a operator can use the advanced functions enabling extended
means of data modification. The advanced functions are used in a form of text
marker and arguments in brackets:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
round (numeric value, rounding precision (number)) - rounding
abs (numeric value) – absolute value
sin (numeric value) - sine
cos (numeric value) - cosine
tan (numeric value) - tangent
sqrt (numeric value) - radical
pow (numeric value, power base (number)) - power
log (numeric value) – logarithm
log10 (numeric value) – logarithm base 10
257
Caution:
A numeric value is comprehended as an optional number or an optional
mathematical operation that returns a numeric value.
There are additional functions that modify the text values, and they can also
operate on numbers that are coverted to text:
• remove (“text value”, initial place (number), quantity of characters to be
removed (number)) – a return is a residue after deleting a part of the text
value, from the initial point to a determined quantity of characters. In
case the third parameter is not specified the text value will be deleted till
its end.
• substring (“text value”, initial place (number), quantity of characers to be
copied (number)) – a return is copied text value from the initial point to a
quantity of characters to be copied. In case the third parameter is not
specified the text value will be copied till the end.
• tolower (“text value”) – a return is a complete text value in small letters.
• toupper (“text value”) – a return is a complete text value in capital letters.
• replace (“text value”, old text, new text) – a return is a text with replaced
letters of parts of the text, determined in the second and their parameter.
Caution:
The text values are put in quotation marks “ ”.
Examples:
remove (“Text sample”,11) – the operation causes returning a text value:
“Text sample”.
toupper (“Text sample”) – the operation causes returning a text value
“TEXT SAMPLE”.
replace (“Text sample”, “text ”, “text”) - the operation causes returning
a text value “Text sample”.
replace (”2.000”,”0”,”1”) - the operation causes returning a text value
“2.111”. The value can be used for standard mathematical calculations,
where it will be converted “on the fly” in case the operation requires it.

a label is printed on a connected printer, provided
a selected client or product has an ascribed label.
2. Users can perform the test label printout – see ch. 34.5 of this
manual.

48. APPENDIX F - Communication with barcode scanners
1. For communication with barcode scanners RADWAG scales use RS232
interfaces and simplex transmission (one direction) without handshaking.
Only two wires are required for assuring such a transmission. Used
scanners should be equipped in such interface with disabled both
hardware and software handshaking.
2. Both scales and scanners have the possibility of setting of transmission
parameters. Both devices are required to have the same parameters set
: baud rate, number of data bits, parity control, stop bits. e.g. 9600,8,N,1
– baud rate 9600 bit/s, data 8-bits, no parity control, 1 stop bit.
272
3. Barcode scanners can send additional information apart from the
expected barcode e.g. symbology (type of barcode). It is advisable
to disable such information because RADWAG devices and
software do not use it.
4. Some RADWAG systems can omit unnecessary information by
using parameters that mark the beginning and the length of the
code required to analyse.
5. A special protocol is required in order the code be received by
RADWAG equipment. It is required to program an appropriate
prefix and suffix. Prefix – one byte 01 hexadecimally, suffix one
byte 0D hexadecimally.
6. Most barcode scanners allow to enable/disable different
symbologies (barcode types).
7. Programming of scanners is usually performed by reading
special barcodes or by using an external software tool.
8. Scanners marketed together with RADWAG systems are
always configured according to the rules above.

suffix in hexadecimal format
