electronic counting scale market came into existence in the
late 1970's in the United States as a number of new ventures
emerged by taking advantage of microprocessors. In 1980's
electronic counting scales became the standard items in the
weighing industry throughout the world. Since this time
A&D Weighing has been a leader in the counting scale market
for microprocessor based counting scale innovation.
End users / operators are sometimes lost with a sophisticated
counting scale that their manager decided to purchase.
Then, the scale collects dust or gives wrong counting results,
and the manager starts yelling at the scale company that sold
the counting scale saying your counting scale does not work.
Selling a counting scales to managers and convince them that
the production efficiency will greatly improve with all those
fancy features, but in reality they are not used. Operators
who are lost, overwhelmed or who don't want to bother learning
all the functions of a counting scale will like the "Simple
Operation Mode" which uses fewer keys to accomplish
basic counting jobs.
created the "Simple Operation Mode" which disables the
unwanted keys by software. With the FC-i counting scale,
one can disable the unnecessary buttons leaving only the very
keys needed for basic counting operable by F-function selection
(see  below).
A&D provides LED enunciators to guide the operator to the
next step in the weighing process.
In "Simple Operation Mode", the LED
on SAMPLE button alone lights up
prompting the operator to place the samples on the scale; and,
once it is done, the LED on ENTER button lights up to prompt the pressing of the enter button.
All one has to do is to follow the guidance of those two LED
guided buttons to work the machine. If an operator accidentally
presses other buttons, they are ignored by the machine as the
buttons' functionality has been disabled. To further reduce
chances of getting lost in operation, the design engineers provided
a RESET button, the pressing of
which automatically returns the scale to its initial settings
at any time.
is true that there are a handful of operators who prefer some
sophistication in operation for accurate counting, however a
majority of users who are more or less given tools to work with
do better jobs with easier tools or prefer to work with the
"Simple Operation Mode" function.
The new FC-i Counting Scale is truly a user-friendly counting
operation. With greater internal resolution of 10,000,000
counts for FC-Si and 1,000,000 counts for FC-i, the choice of
"Simple Operation Mode" puts managers
at ease as accuracy is further enhanced even with simple counting
| To select "Simple Operation Mode",
follow the steps below.
1. To select [F-01-01] from the
Press [ZERO] and [STANDBY] at the same time.
Enter 0 then 1, and press [ENTER].
[F-01-01] should appear on the display.
