1. PRESENTATION AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The MPE System type 3 (Electronic Weighing System) is meant to be used on a front loader. The MPE System measures,
displays and records the weight of the load lifted by the loader each time.
The console of the MPE System is wireless. Thanks to its pocket size, it will easily have a place in the cab and accompany
you during the manual loading of concentrates in the bucket for instance.
The MPE System has 11 channels that enable weighing with various implements, or various uses. It also adds up weights
in order to provide the total weight loaded.
RECOMMENDATIONS
The MPE System must not be used for commercial transactions.
The MPE System measures the hydraulic pressure in the lifting rams and converts this pressure into weight.
The accuracy thus depends on:
— a hydraulic oil at a stabilised temperature.
— a good setting and calibration.
— an even distribution of the load in the implement (bucket, fork ...).
— an exact repositioning of the implement during each weighing.
— a specific and stable engine speed (during the weighing).
— the tractor being on level ground.
— the operating condition of the loader (greasing, hydraulic sealing ...).
2. SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL RULES
2.1 Safety rules
— Only control the loader from the tractors seat. Keep controlling until movements stop.
— Do not leave the seat without stopping all control movements.
— Any fault diagnosis and/or removal of parts must be carried out by a professional who shall start by guaranteeing that
the work will be carried out safely for him and his environment, notably in the case of work on a lifted loader.
— Any load handling must be carried out with proper equipment (safety shoes, slings, straps ...). The load must be
carefully put in the implement to avoid any damage (feeding bucket for example).
— Do not allow water to touch the console of the MPE System.
— Never change the connection of hoses and electrical system components.
— Any change of an MX supplied part or use of an element other than MX, invalidates the MX warranty on all its
equipment.
— Use only original MX spare parts. Do not change your MPE System yourself or ask another person to change your
MPE System, without first asking for written authorisation from MX. In the event of damage or injury, MX shall not be
held responsible in any way.
— Warranty immediately ceases if rules and intructions in the user guide are not followed. MX shall not be held
responsible for accidents that might result from actions contrary to these restrictions.

2.2 Environmental rules
The procedure for the elimination of electrical and electronic products differs from that of municipal waste
and warrants the implication of services designated by government or local councils.
The symbol of a crossed out rubbish bin can means that the European Directive 2002/96/EC applies to this
product.
For more information on the treatment of end-of-life appliances, contact your council, the nearest waste treatment
centre or product reseller.
3. INITIAL STEPS
[2]
3.1 Package content
[1]
The MPE System type 3 is made up of:
— 1 console with velcro strip [1].
[5]
— 1 battery charging cable [2] (mounted by the console in the
cab).
— 1 control box [3] (mounted by the 3rd serv valve block on
the loader).
— 2 pressure transmitters and hydraulic connectors
(mounted by the mach system on the hydraulic lifting
line) [4].
[3]
[4]
— 1 static visual indicator [5] (to be mounted: see chapter
4.2.1) with a double sided sticker (stuck to the visual
indicator).
— 1 sticking board: 1 reference card [6], 4 stationary
indicating stickers I, II, III, IV [7].
3.2 Installation
3.2.1 Installing the console in the cab
Stick the velcro strip to the cab. First check if the location of the console is easily accessible and readable from
the seat. Also check if this location disturbs the movement of other controls on the tractor.
The link between the console and the control box is established through radio frequency (wireless). The range
is sufficient enough to support any console location in the cab of the tractor.

3.4 Weighing in dynamic or static mode: which mode should be chosen?
You have two weighing modes at your disposal: dynamic or static.
The mode choice depends on your use.
3.4.1 Dynamic mode
With this mode, weighing takes place during the lifting of the
loader. This is the most practical mode for routine activities such
as silage unloading and manure loading. During these activities,
you lift the loader to empty the load in a truck or spreader. The
MPE System detects this lifting phase and calculates the weight of
the load.
3.4.2 Stationary mode
Weighing is done while the entire tractor/loader is not in motion
(loader lifted to a given position).
Weight reading is immediate and continuous, and load variation
can be monitored directly on the screen. This mode is particularly
appreciated during the manual loading of concentrates in the
bucket (for example, during silo loading or during distribution).
3.5 Description of channels
There are 11 channels for weighing with various
implements or for various uses.
Channels 1 to 7:
For tools such as recovery buckets (BR), multi-service
buckets (BMS), pallet forks and carriers (TR)...
Weighing can be done in dynamic or stationary mode.
1 channel

1 tool
For feeding
buckets
Channels A to D:
For feeding buckets (BD).
These channels are preconfigured: see chapter 7, use
with a feeding bucket.

4. CALIBRATING CHANNELS
Caution
This step is essential for the good functioning of the MPE System.
The accuracy of the system will depend on how well it was calibrated:
Good calibration = Good accuracy
Always work with a stable oil temperature
4.1 Calibrating in dynamic mode
4.1.1 Adjusting the control box
It is important, first of all, to adjust the control box to set the weighing height in dynamic mode. Once this operation
has been carried out, this height must remain the same no matter the channel chosen in dynamic mode.
If the control box is already adjusted, go directly to point 4.1.2.
• 19, rue de Rennes • BP 83221 • F - 35690 ACIGNÉ

Modification reserved
— Set the loader and the implement at the desired weighing height (for example, the bottom of the implement at 2 m
from the ground).
For optimal measurement, the weighing height (h) must be between
of 2 m minimum
2 m mini.
— Stop the engine of the tractor and engage the hand brake.
— Switch the ignition on again (without starting the tractor) to activate the control box. Check if the red light flashes
on the control box.
— Switch on the console by positioning on channel 1. The control box should be facing you all through the following
operations.
— Gently loosen the central bolt of the control box [6] and the
sensor until display [7] appears.
The adjustment of the control box makes the stars "* * * *"
start appearing.

CAUTION:
• During this phase, ensure that there is nobody in the cab.
• Never stand between the loader and the tractor (you may be crushed).
— Tighten the central bolt [6] again making sure you do not adjust the control box during the tightening.
Any change of weighing height after calibration obliges you to go through the calibration procedure
again for each channel in dynamic mode. Make sure you first define the height.

4.2 Calibrating in static mode
4.2.1 Mounting the visual indicator
In static mode, it is important, first of all, to define the position of the
loader from the ground. This position must always be respected
during static weighing sessions.
The visual indicator helps to easily locate the position of the loader.
[9]
— Wash and clean the inner plate of the left Fitlock frame [8].
— Stick the visual indicator on the Fitlock frame as indicated in the
diagram opposite.
Caution: with loader on the ground, the end of the indicator must not
exceed the boom [9].

bucket at 40/50 cm from the ground.
- for the loading of silage, the removal height of the silage.
5. Wash and clean the left arm of the boom.
Stick the stationary indicator sticker opposite and next to the visual
indicator as in the picture opposite.
Your weighing height is thus defined for this channel.
6. Tilt the implement as in a real weighing situation.
e.g.: -for the loading of concentrates, crowd back.
-for the weighing of pallets, position the implement
horizontally using an indicator rod.
For grab implements, position the grab as in real weighing
situation. The weight of the grab can cause the pressure
in the lifting rams to vary depending on where it is
positioned.
