Exacto Weigh Electronic Scales

 

 

Important!!

 To ensure your complete satisfaction with your new Rebco Electronic Wheel Scales, please read this operation manual completely before use!!

Before you begin…

Attach the power converter (charger) 

Rebco Electronic Wheel Scales are 100% tested and the internal battery charged prior to leaving our factory.  However, the battery can lose its charge when it is inactive for a period of time.  Therefore, we suggest that you charge your control unit for at least 8 hours prior to use.  This will ensure accurate readings and increase your overall satisfaction.

To charge the battery, plug the power converter into the control box and be sure that the “ON/OFF” switch in the rear of the control box is in the “OFF” position.  Plug the power converter into a wall outlet.

ON EARLY MODELS, IF THE SWITCH IS NOT IN THE “OFF” POSITION THE BATTERY WILL NOT CHARGE AND YOU MAY ENCOUNTER FALSE READINGS WHILE USING THE SCALE SYSTEM.  FOLLOWING THE ABOVE PROCEDURE WILL ELIMINATE A LOW BATTERY SITUATION.

 

SYSTEM SET-UP 

  1. Find a level surface to place vehicle on.  Place the Exacto Weigh control box on a stand or table close to the vehicle.  Plug in the power converter and place the “ON/OFF” switch in the “OFF” position.  If you are not near an AC power outlet, a fully charged battery will usually operate for several hours before it gets low and requires charging.
  1. Place a scale pad next to each wheel of the vehicle with the cable connector facing towards the center of the vehicle  (this will help eliminate the possibility of kicking the cable or running over a cable with a floor jack).
  1. Run the cables from the control box under the center of the vehicle and attaché each cable to the scale pad specified on the cable.
  1. Press the “ZERO” button on the keypad of the control box.  All six display readouts should read ZERO at this time.  If the display does not read all zeros, press the “ZERO” button again.
  1. Raise the vehicle and place the scale pads under each wheel.  Lower the car onto the scale pads.  Use caution so as not to drop the vehicle on the pads, as this may damage the load cells.  When the vehicle is on the pads, settle all the chassis/suspension of the vehicle.

DO NOT PRESS THE “ZERO” BUTTON WHILE THE VEHICLE IS ON SCALE PADS OR THE PROCESS WILL HAVE TO BE STARTED FROM THE BEGINNING. 

  1. The numbers displayed on the screen are the weights as shown in relation to the vehicle on the keypad.

Upper Right Display

  1. You will note that there is an asterisk (*) next to each one of the individual wheel weights on the display screen.  The (*) indicates that the scale pad is activated and contributing to the percentage on the upper right of the screen.  By activating or deactivating the (*) of the pads you can then display any combination of percentages you wish.

 

EXAMPLE:   

Calculating Left Side Weight Percentage: 

  1. All four wheel displays should display the asterisk (*).
  1. Press the “RF” button to deactivate the right front scale pad and eliminate the (*) on the right front display.
  1. Press the “RR” button to deactivate the right rear scale pad and eliminate the (*) on the right rear wheel display.
  1. The (*) should now be displayed next to the Left Front (LF) and Left Rear (LR) displays.  The upper right display will show the left side weight percentage.
  1. To calculate other combinations of wheel weight percentages, simply press the appropriate buttons to activate or deactivate the scale pads to achieve your desired percentage.

 

PRINTER: 

If you have purchased the optional printer #110-1025, attach the printer to the control box with the cable provided and plug into an AC power source.  Press the “PRINT” button and the vehicle corner weights will be printed out.
