The standard RS-232C makes it straightforward to connect a computer, printer or bar code reader as well as to use the programmable printer format function.  (Please note at the present time A&D designed the FC-i with the capabilities of using the FC-i counting scale with a bar code reader, scanner or printer but don't actually offer these components as accessories allowing you to purchase everything from an A&D Authorized Dealer like us.  Please contact John Means, Marketing Manager for A&D Weighing at 408-263-5333 prior to placing an order if you anticipate integrating the counting scale with a bar code reader, scanner or printer.  John Means can supply you with a list of products that will integrate seamlessly with the FC-i Series, but require you to purchase these items separately.)

The rugged FC-i retains all of the standard features of the original FC including comparator and accumulator functions as well as ACAI, A&D’s exclusive Automatic Count Accuracy Improvement.  ACAI continuously improves counting accuracy by recalculating average unit weight.  The remote scale option extends the functionality and capacity up to 100,000 pounds and is available with a Ni-MH rechargeable battery for portability.

These new FC-i Series Counting Scales have a user friendly function to set and recall the unit weight by Navigation System in the LED using “SAMPLE” , “KEY-BOARD” and “ID” keys to use the counting scales with ease and simplicity without error.electronic counting scale

The VFD display for piece counting makes for easy viewing thanks to its large numbers and sub display showing Weight, Comparator Result, Unit Weight, ID Number and Item Code.

As for the Item Code, you can use in numeric and alphanumeric letters.

The ACAI (Automatic Counting Accuracy Improvement) is a very useful function to make the unit weight by averaging bigger sample number for the sample weight to be weighed for more accurate counting result.

The standard RS-232C interface and newly developed UFC function (Universal Flex Coms) aims to expand the recording application to connect and print out the counting result from FC-i to an external dump printer for increased user flexibility. Universal Flexi Coms UFC allows you to customize the protocol of the printing format as well as outputting the data with RS-232C

The useful Remote Scale function is a heavy capacity weighing and counting application with Optional Connection Board (OP-05i), the Relay Output function prompts the signal of “HI”, “GO” and “LO” for Lamp Indicator, Buzzer Sound System and/or Automatic Feeding System (OP-04i)

For using the Counting Scale FC-i in remote locations without mains power, an optional Rechargeable Battery Unit is available (OP-02i).
