INSTALLATION

Location
The scale should be installed in a location with a flat, level floor. Note that the weighing platform will not sit completely against the floor. This will not affect the accuracy of the scale as the weighing platform will settle to the floor when the patient is placed on the scale. CARDINAL Detecto 7550 Fold up Stationary Wheelchair Scale - fig

warning 2The front-load cells of the weighing platform will be off the floor. The backload cells must be sitting completely on the floor.

There should be 1/8” to 1/4” clearance between the sides of the scale frame and the floor. This clearance is required for the lift mechanism to close completely. The included shims can be used to raise the scale if there are slight imperfections with the floor or wall mount installation that sits the wall mount too low and prevents the scale from closing completely. If the wall mount is too high the back load cells will not touch the floor when the weighing of the platform is lowered. If the wall mount is too high, the wall mount must be moved lower on the wall or the scale will not function correctly.CARDINAL Detecto 7550 Fold up Stationary Wheelchair Scale - fig 1

NOTE: It may be necessary to remove any base molding/chair rail/wall guard or to remove a section of the base molding/chair rail/wall guard to provide space to mount the scale in a true vertical position. An alternative method would be to shim the wall mount away from the wall to accommodate any base molding/chair rail/wall guard.

Step 1 – Unpack the Scale
IMPORTANT: UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION OF THIS PRODUCT SHOULD BE PERFORMED BY TWO PEOPLE. PLEASE READ THROUGH THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE STARTING TO INSTALL THE SCALE.
NOTE: Make certain the scale has been received in good condition. Check for any damage incurred in shipping. If the scale has been damaged, place a claim with the carrier. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to file all claims for any damages or loss incurred during transit. Keep the carton and packing material for return shipment if it should become necessary.CARDINAL Detecto 7550 Fold up Stationary Wheelchair Scale - fig2

  3. Remove all packing material.
  4. Cut the tape securing the flaps on one end of the carton and with an assistant, slide the scale out of the carton.

NOTE: When the scale is out of the carton, DO NOT lift the scale by the strap securing the weighing platform to the scale frame to raise the scale to the upright position.

Step 2 – Install the Wall Mount 
warning 2 NOTE:  Due to the various types of wall construction, no mounting hardware is furnished with the scale.  Appropriate mounting hardware suitable to the wall’s construction will need to be obtained to secure the wall mount to the wall.
CARDINAL Detecto 7550 Fold up Stationary Wheelchair Scale - fig5

The wall mount allows the scale to be adjusted up or down and left or right to accommodate floors that may not be perfectly flat. This ensures the accuracy of the weighing platform and prevents undue stress on the scale.
The wall mount should be secured to the wall using mounting hardware suitable to the wall’s construction. The six (6) holes (in groups of two, sixteen (16) inches apart) in the wall mount allow for 1/4″ hardware to be used to secure the wall mount to the wall.CARDINAL Detecto 7550 Fold up Stationary Wheelchair Scale - fig6

  1. Determine the desired location where the scale is to be mounted.
  2. With an assistant, place the wall mount against the wall. Ensure it’s level and 35 1/2” from the top edge of the wall mount to the floor.
  3. Mark the holes to mount the wall mount.
  4. Remove the wall mount and drill the required diameter holes for the mounting hardware used.
  5. Fasten the wall mount to the wall.

To install the indicator, slightly loosen the adjustment knob to allow the two parts of the socket to open enough to insert the rubber ball and place the rubber ball on the back of the indicator into the swivel ball socket mount. Tighten the adjustment knob slightly to secure the indicator for the next step.
  4. Turn the indicator around (display away from you). Locate the 9-pin load cell connector on the back panel of the indicator. Align the long edge of the load cell cable connector with the long edge of the indicator connector. Place the load cell cable connector on the indicator connector and secure using the load cell cable retaining screws.
  5. Adjust the indicator to the desired viewing angle and direction and then tighten the adjustment knob.
