The Weigh-Station is a vending solution for managing bench stock at point-of-use. The machine uses scales to determine the stock taken and the amount. • Used for easy dispensing, tracking and replenishment of high-use expendables, bench stock or bulk issue items. What is a Weigh-Station?

Major Weigh Station Hardware Components: • Scale System Assembly • Main Scale Controller Box • Scale Shelf Board(s) • Scales (Up to 6 per Scale Shelf Board) Hardware – Weigh station • Computer Assembly • All-In-One PC (Tek-Vision) • Mouse • Keyboard • Badge Scanner • Door Lock Assembly • Relay Box (CA) • Serial Cable Assembly (goes to Relay Box from COM1) • Lock and Switch Port (COM 3, monitors lock position) • South-Co Latch
Scale Controller Weigh Station internal communication paths • All-In-One • Computer Door Lock Scale Board Com Port 1 & 3 Scale communication starts when the door closes. Scale
SCALES The scales currently used are manufactured by Fairbanks. Scale Sizes used: 5, 25, and 50 lbs 1,2, 3, and 250 lb scales are not currently offered. Scales have a label identifying 5lb, 25lb or 50lb.
Scale Delta & Item Weight Delta is the minimum weight with which the scale will do a transaction. ATR 9 has 3 Scale Deltas: 5Lb Delta - 0.004lb - The small delta is used for all scales that handle less than 5 lbs. 25Lb Delta - .02lb - The medium delta is used for scales that handle up to exactly 25 lbs. 50lb Delta - .04lb - The large delta is used for scales that handle over 50 lbs.
SCALE BOARDS • Scale boards are usually mounted on the bottom of a shelf. • Scale boards feed one to another in a chain fashion. Transmits data from Scale to Scale Controller (Box). Six port Scale Boards are standard. Some shelves may have two Scale Boards.
Zeroing a Scale Weigh Station initial Stocking Use ADJUST to enter initial quantity. Zero Scale using ADJUST mode. MSG - Scale Zeroed Successfully MSG - Scale S0003-1 Item 36578 Item Unit Weight = 0.145
Pre-installed Software utilities Before a Weigh Station is shipped, the following programs are installed: ATR embedded Weigh Station Diagnostics (NEW April 2013) CM Cal - Scale Programming Utility – Allows testing of scales CM Switch – Door Lock Configuration Utility *Hint* - All the software related to your device can be found at: C:\Cribmasterbackupsoftware\Test software\ or D:\Cribmasterbackupsoftware\Test software\
ATR Embedded diagnostics ATR version 9.6.50425.1 (and newer) includes on-board diagnostics. These diagnostics allow you to verify weights, zero and recalibrate scales.
ATR weigh station diagnostics Channel Numbers are the scale number (Port) however numbering must start with “0” instead of “1”. Logically, “0” is “1”, “1” is “2” and so on. Shelve Number is actually the scale board without the S000. Before preforming any diagnostics, set your Shelf No. and Channel. Notice the screen identifies the Board and Port as you complete the two values.

Click the “Weight Analysis” button to display scale weight status by color. ATR weight analysis Colors indicates scale weights are in or out of specs. GREEN = Within specs RED = Indicates a malfunctioning scale or the individual product weight is over or under specs.
Weigh station Options ComPort – Should contain the correct Com Port which the Scale Box is connected. Tekvision : Com 4 Door Lock Port – Should display correct Com Port which the Door Lock is connected Tekvision: Com 1 (Leads to Relay Box) Switch Port – Should display correct Com Port in which the Switch port is connected Tekvision: Com 3 (Leads to Relay Box)
Weigh station Machine Options RecordWeightGains –If TRUE, an event log message will be recorded in CM Admin if weight is added to the scale by an unauthorized employee. RestockEmployeeID – If valid Employee ID is specified no event log mess will be written if that employee adds weight to scale. Threshold – The amount of time, in seconds, that the cabinent will scan once the door (S) are closed. This amount is tripled to designate the intial scan on start up (Default = 10) Rounding Threshold - The % value of the unit weight required to be detected by the scale to qualify a transaction
Weight Station Bin naming Weigh Station Bins have the following format: Crib-Placeholder-Board-ScaleNumber Ex: 01-L1-S0001-1 The Placeholder is a custom identifier which can be any value.
Bridging Cribmaster and ATR Golden Rule: A Weigh-Station will NOT connect to ATR successfully, until your scales have been imported correctly as bins inside the CribMaster database. The bin data must match the physical bin names.
Causes: • Faulty Bin Setup • Bad Scale Box • Powered Off Scale Box • Loose Connection to Scale Box Com Port • Loose Connection between scale boards • Accidental Renaming of Scale ID troubleshooting
Place Weigh Station as level as possible. • Always Zero Out scale before filling with product. • When zeroing out scale make sure shelve/scale is still. • Avoid moving a Weigh Station when full of product. • Avoid moving a Weigh Station when shelves are not tied down. Weigh Station Best Practices
