Setup is accessed from the navigation sidebar, or from the setup menu in the file menu. The settings are in a single window with multiple tabs.
The settings include:
The parallel input/output (PIO) section controls devices that have two states, and that can either be set or be sensed.
An example of a device that can be set is switching a traffic light from red to green, or opening and closing a silo gate. An example of a sensing device is a photocell being blocked or cleared, or a pulse signaling asphalt production. Some switches come in pairs. For example, the system always allows for two sets of traffic lights per scale, whether or not both are actually installed. The first of the pair is the "entry" light. It is red whenever a truck is on the scale, and is green when the truck leaves the scale. It is used to inform the next truck that the scale is clear and it is OK to drive on. The "exit" light goes red when the truck mounts the scale, and back to green when the transaction is complete and the driver may leave. It also returns to green if the truck leaves without completing a transaction. Photocells typically also come in pairs, one at either end of the scale. If either is blocked, this indicates that the truck is not completely on the scale.
