CHECK POWER SOURCE AND BATTERY BACK UP

  • Battery Backups and/or surge protectors can fail
Scale equipment should have a dedicated circuit. Additional devices on the same circuit can affect scale performance. Some of the items that may affect scale are:
  • Fluorescent light ballasts
  • Refrigerators
  • Microwaves
  • A/C Units
  • Heaters
  • Grain Probes
  • Other motor driven devices or items with large draw on start up

    VERIFY THAT SCALE HAS PROPER CLEARANCES

    The scale platform is “live”, so any obstructions will limit scale capability
    • Check for debris wedged in, rubbing against, or under scale. Pay special attention to keeping the ends of the scale debris free.
    • If you have a PIT scale, inspect pit for water and scale gaps for proper clearances. Also check for water under scale components, such as levers and suspensions and/or load cells and links.
    •  
    • WEATHER
    • Windy conditions can effect scale – ie: scale tickets will not print until the scale platform is stable.
    • Snow and ice on deck adds weight to scaleClear scale deck and zero scale.
    • Negative weights may indicate that ends of scale are frozen, prohibiting proper operation.   

      HOW TO INSTALL A REPLACEMENT RIBBON ON AN EPSON TM-U295

      Use an Epson ERC-27 ribbon cassette
