Introduction

  • The SB-30/70/150 Digital Bench Scales are compact bench scales with a display and five functional keyboards. It is available in 30 lb (15 kg), 70 lb (30 kg), and 150 lb (70 kg) capacities. It comes standard with a bright LED screen for easy readout, a removable stainless steel platform, and an RS-232C serial communication port.
  • These scales can be configured to display their divisions in two separate modes – non-NTEP mode and NTEP mode. The scale is shipped from the factory configured in NTEP mode. The NTEP mode is supplied for scales that need to comply with Handbook 44 requirements. To re-configure the scale, please refer to the “Setup Menu Mode” section of the manual.
  • SB-30/70/150 uses full duplex RS-232C serial format for communication with personal computers or remote displays. Units can transmit data on demand or continuously in several popular data protocols.
  • Each scale’s serial communication parameters are altered through the User menu The “User Menu Mode” section of the manual explains how to use the five front panel keys to maneuver and save settings in this menu.

Installation and Wiring

The scale’s back panel comes equipped with a female DSUB-9 connector for the RS-232 serial port, a jack for DC power input, a calibration switch, a remote display connector (SB-30 & SB-70 only), and an ON/OFF rocker switch.AND-SB-30-Digital-Bench-Scale-Instruction-Manual-1

  • To install the scale, simply plug the enclosed AC Wall Adapter into the scale’s DC power jack first, then into an AC outlet (115 VAC only).
  • For SB-30 and SB-70 scales, plug in the remote display/keyboard unit.
  • Finally, turn the rocker switch to the ON (“1”) position. The scale is now ready for use.

The female 9-pin RS-232 connector is used to interface to a PC. Shown at right are the pin assignments for the connector.AND-SB-30-Digital-Bench-Scale-Instruction-Manual-2

Calibration

The scale can be calibrated by following the procedure shown below. The minimum test weight and the recommended test weight depends on the scale’s capacity.

AND-SB-30-Digital-Bench-Scale-Instruction-Manual-12

For the SB-30, the minimum test weight is 0.3 lb (0.15 kg), and the recommended test weight is 20 lb (10 kg). For the SB-70, the minimum test weight is 0.7 lb (0.35 kg), and the recommended test weight is 47 lb (23 kg). For the SB-150, the minimum test weight is 1.5 lb (0.7 kg), and the recommended test weight is 100 lb (50 kg).

To calibrate the scale:

  1. If you are already in Setup Menu Mode, scroll to “F 12” and press the ZERO key. Otherwise, turn the scale off and set the Calibration Switch on the back panel to the opposite position. Turn the unit back on.
    The message “C 0” appears on the display briefly, followed by a value that remains on the screen. Allow a 20-minute warm-up period for the load cell and other electronics to become thermally stable.
  2. Press ZERO to zero the value, then press the NET/GROSS key to save the zero point value.
  3. The display will momentarily prompt “C 1” for the span calibration, followed by “0.00” with one digit flashing. Place the test weight on the platform.
  4. Use the four directional keys to adjust the displayed value to the actual test weight value in pounds. Increase the flashing digit by pressing the lb/kg key. Decrease the flashing digit by pressing the ZERO key. The position of the flashing digit may be changed by pressing the PRINT key or the TARE key.
  5. After setting the exact value, press the NET/GROSS key to save the value.
  6. If the calibration is successful, the display will show “ECAL” momentarily, then freeze. Exit the Calibration mode and enter the Normal Operating Mode by positioning the Calibration Switch back to its original position.
  7. If the calibration is not successful, one of the error messages below will appear. Take the indicated action to correct the problem, then perform a new calibration.
    “Err0” – The calibration test weight or the adjusted keyed-in weight is larger than the full scale. Change the calibration test weight or check the keyed-in weight.
    “Err1” – The calibration test weight or the adjusted keyed-in weight is smaller than 1% of the full scale. Change the calibration test weight or check the keyed-in weight.
    “Err2” – Check keyed-in weight with the actual weight placed on the platform.

To place the unit back into the Normal Operating mode:

  1. Toggle the Calibration Switch back to its original position.
  2. The display will go through a digit check, and then settle into Normal Operating mode. All front panel keys will now return to their normal mode of operation.

Troubleshooting the Serial Port

The scale’s serial port operation can be verified by following the procedure below. This procedure makes use of HyperTerminal – a serial port communication program bundled with Windows 95 and Windows 98 operating systems. A HyperTerminal configuration file is available on the Transcell website.

A comprehensive summary of the various Serial Data Formats (SDFs) can be found in the SB Series Service Manual.

To test the scale’s serial port for proper operation:

  1. Connect the NMC-1 Null Modem Cable or equivalent between the scale and your PC. Make sure to note which communication port (i.e. COM1, COM2) you are using on the PC.
  2. On the scale, select the desired setting in the User Menu, including baud rate (A1), Data Bits and Parity (A2), mode (A3), and serial data format (A4). Note that all Transcell scales have a fixed parameter of one (1) stop bit.
  3. On your PC, run HyperTerminal. Select the proper settings for the following using the scale’s settings:
    Baud Rate
    Data Bits
    Parity
    Stop Bits = 1
  4. Enable the CAPS LOCK key on your PC.
  5. This test verifies that the scale is transmitting properly. If the scale is set to Demand mode, pressing the PRINT key on the scale should echo the weight readout on the PC screen. If the Continuous mode has been selected on the scale, the PC screen will overrun with weight information.
    NOTE: The TOLEDO, A&D/NCI/CAS, FAIRBANKS, and TRINER formats do not support a Continuous mode.
  6. This test verifies that the scale is received properly. Use the table below to determine the valid commands for your serial data format setting. For example, the ‘P’ command is executed by pressing the capital “P” key on your PC keyboard. Unless otherwise specified, you do not need to press the ENTER key on your PC.
    NOTE1: If the scale is set to Continuous mode, the print commands will be ignored.
    NOTE2: If the scale is in motion, the print commands will be ignored for most SDFs.AND-SB-30-Digital-Bench-Scale-Instruction-Manual-15
