A high-resolution counting scale is a type of digital scale that is designed to provide accurate readings for small objects or items. These scales typically have a resolution of 0.1 grams, making them ideal for use in settings such as retail stores, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities.
Best Conditions for Weighing on a Scale:
- When it comes to getting accurate readings from your counting scale, there are a few factors that you will need to take into account.
- The surface on which the scale is placed should be level and stable. If the scale is not level, the readings may be inaccurate.
- Make sure that there are no vibrations in the area where the scale is being used. Vibrations can also cause inaccurate readings.
- The area should be well-lit so that you can easily see the display on the scale.
- The temperature should also be taken into account. Most scales are designed to be used in temperature-controlled environments. If the temperature is too high or too low, it can affect the accuracy of the scale. You can consider the 50%~60% relative humidity.
- Avoid installing the scale near windows or in direct sunlight, as this can also affect the readings.

Calibration Process of the FC-i Series High-Resolution Counting Scales:
The process of adjusting an instrument so that it gives a known value for a given quantity is called calibration.
Calibration of FC-i Series is required when the scale is first installed and then at regular intervals to ensure the scale remains accurate. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions when calibrating the scale.
Calibration Procedure Using a Weight:
Note: The scale must be connected to electricity for at least half an hour to warm up before starting the calibration process.
1. First, detach the switch cover of the calibration. Then press the (CAL) switch of the calibration. (You should be able to see the "CAL" in the count of a scale).
To exit without calibrating the scale, you just need to Press the "CAL switch".
2. For entering into the ZERO & span calibration mod, just press the "ZERO" key.
You should be able to see the required calibration weight value on the display.
Note: For different weights, use the  to  and [.] -key pad to see the desired calibration weight on the display.
3. Press the ENTER key so that the calibration weight stops blinking And "cal 0" appears.
4. Remember, that there should be nothing in the weighing pan.
5. Now just place the calibration weight on the scale's pan & after placing it, press the "ENTER" key.
6. At the end, you’ll need to press the CAL switch. After switching off you can re-attach the switch cover of the calibration.
Gravity compensation is a process that ensures the scale is accurate regardless of where it is located. The scale must be calibrated for the specific location in which it will be used. This is because gravity varies depending on the latitude of the location. For example, a scale calibrated for use at sea level will not be accurate if used at a higher altitude, such as in the mountains.
To compensate for the effects of gravity, the scale must be calibrated at the location where it will be used. To do this, the following steps must be followed:
1. Start by pressing the "TARE" key, so the display shows the gravity acceleration value stored in the scale.
2. For displaying the desired gravity acceleration value just use the  to  and [.] 10 keypad. (For Example the value 9.800 m/s2)
3. Press the ENTER key so that the scale will store a new value.
Note: To calibrate the scale, using a weight, just go to procedure 2 of the previous section.
4. In the end section of the calibration procedure, press the CAL switch and re-attach the switch cover of the calibration.
