To view the data, insert and configure scales and choose how to receive data. You can also manage users and select the desired language. 2 Installation The steps for installing the program are 6: Figure 1 – Setup (step 1) 3 Figure 2 – Setup (step 2) Figure 3 – Setup (step 3) 4 Figure 4 – Setup (step 4) Figure 5 – Setup (step 5) 5 Figure 6 – Setup (step 6) 6 3 Wizard configuration At the first start, a software wizard setup will be run to make the use of the program easy and intuitive. The configuration is divided in its interior in 4 steps:  Language configuration  Scale configuration  Operation mode  File save 3.1 LANGUAGE CONFIGURATION In this screen you can choose the desired language from the language list Figure 7 – Selection of the language 7 3.2 SCALE CONFIGURATION The scale can be configured in 2 different ways: • Automatic search. This mode allows the software to look for all serial ports on present scales. • Manual search. This mode allows the user to set the communication type of the scale Figure 8 – Scale configuration If you choose to use the Automatic Search, the screen below will be displayed with the relevant information related to ongoing research. Figure 9 – Automatic Search In the Manual Search, you can change the settings of the communication (COM, TCP‐IP, UDP) with their characteristics. The button Test the connection is designed to check whether there is a scale. The values chosen can establish communication between a software and a scale. 8 Figure 10 – Manual search The Next button will be enabled only when a scale was found. Figure 11 – Scale Found 9 3.3 OPERATION MODE In this screen you can choose the operation mode of the scale. They are 2 of them:  From PC  From scale In the first case, from PC → by the PC keyboard, the storage will only occur when the weight is stable. In case of a mode from PC → by Time, the storage will occur even if the weight is unstable. The functioning mode from PC allows you to store a weight or by pressing a keyboard button or by programming the save according to a fix time interval. Figure 12 – Functioning mode 10 If you select to use the PC functioning mode, the screen below will appear: Figure 13 – PC functioning mode You may choose whether to use the keypad buttons or a configured time interval to store. Figure 14 – Setting by Time In the category scale functioning mode, the string directly comes from the scale and you can set the separator. Figure 15 – Scale functioning mode 11 3.4 SAVING IN A FILE It makes possible to store the weights in case you want to keep track over time. In the case of storage, you can choose the file type (.txt or .csv) and if you want to save weights day by day (To create file with automatic name). The file with an automatic name will be automatically generated by the caption YYYY‐MM‐DD in the selected folder. The default folder to save to file is: C:\Dini\Data, but you can change the path through the button Change the path. Figure 17 – Saving the File
12 4 Main screen The main screen contains all the set scales (FULL version only). For each scale, you can choose whether to display the list of weighs made or track its progress through the graph. Each scale is connected to a resettable activity by the Configure button. Figure 7 – Main screen (weights) 13 The part related to the graph can be customized in its display by selecting the type of value (all columns are visible in the table of weights). 3 lines can also be inserted to indicate the thresholds of tolerance. It is present only if you select the PC functioning mode → by Time Figure 19– Main screen (Graphic) On the weight screen, you can choose the columns to display and save to a file (if this last option is enabled) by selecting Selects data to be saved. By clicking on its name, each column has the ability to change its heading, choose its size and decide to enable it in case of saving. 14 Figure 20 – Column selection (weights) In a Pc functioning mode, certain information regarding the scale are present: Tare

Figure 21 – Information about scale (from Pc ) Every activity has its own toolbar that adjusts its state and manages the scale: Figure 22 – Toolbar activity It displays if a tare is present The emulation of writing allows you to write the weight in another active window, such as for instance storing the weight of a running file such as Excel, Word or any other program running. 15 5 Advanced modes 5.1 SYSTEM SERVICE If you want to start the program automatically, when you start your Operating System without the need to enter your credentials, you can do this by configuring the program with a system service, such as for example on a server. 5.1.1 Installation Figure 23 ‐ Installation of the System Service During the installation of the following service, the credentials of an administrator user will be request. At the end of the installation, if it was done correctly, you will see a message confirming the installation. 5.1.2 Uninstall Figure 24 – Service system removing 16 6 Warranty and user license Ownership of the software It is expressly forbidden to copy, modify, resell and/or distribute the software without the explicit consensus of Dini Argeo.
