Configuring your workspace:

- Go the the edit menu and click configure workspace

- Find the data tag on each load cell and enter them into the program under data Tag

- Change the format to 0.000

- There are various functions that can be put onto each channel but if you wish to just measure weight then you should select none

- Press ok and you have created your own work space you can save this by pressing File then ‘Save Workspace’ if you wish to use this workspace at a later date

Taking a Measurement:

Recording a Log:

- To record a log of the changes of weight on the load cell go to ‘Logging’ and click ‘Start Logging’ once you have finished recording click ‘Stop Logging’

- To view the log go to ‘View Last Log’ and it will open Microsoft Excel and you will have the data in front of you. You can change the logging interval on the ‘Configure workspace’ Page.
