Hello,

I have 2 types of scales. The first is working perfect. I send a dollarsign to the com port and te scale returns the weigh.

Now I have to use also a Avery Berkel FX120 without the codes to write to the com port.

Has someone experience with this scale.

Thanks
Willy Hermans.

Hi Willy,

FX110 + FX120 are checkout scales for UK and Italy only. The Avery Berkel web site has no download of a manual, so you should contact them first and see whats the way to interface with those scales.

Kind regards,

Hello,

I have several customers in Belgium who use this scale.
I have already asked the command guide in England and In Belgium.
No response from England. The Belgian distributor is not the fastest.

Thanks

Hi Willy,

Try to connect to the scale from terminal or putty to see what kind of data you get from the scale. there 2 ways,
you send a character to the scale to get the weight or a stream of data is sent continuously from the scale.

Meanwhile I received the codes for a Toshiba SL4700.
A Salesman said that this is exactly the same scale.

sOpen(1, 2000,2000) 
				
sWrite(1,Charact(5))
Multitask(20)
cScaleRespons = sRead(1,100)
IF cScaleRespons = Charact(6) THEN
	sWrite(1,Charact(17)+Charact(18))
	Multitask(20)
	cScaleRespons = sRead(1,100)
	cGewicht = Middle(cScaleRespons,4,5)
					
END
				
TMP_VerkoopLijn.Aantal = Val(cGewicht)/1000
				
sClose(1)

And this works.

Thanks everybody.

Hello guys.
Can anyone show an example corresponding to the "way number 2"? I mean, the scale sends the weight continously.
I need to figure out this beforehand. This is a scale for trucks, and I can't find free time for some tests. I'm writing a simple WD program to test the data receiving in a very short period of time (the scale is in use all the time). I already have coded the "way number 1".
TIA.
