This function allows to weight a formula using an attached electronic scale. For this purpose the original recipe is automatically converted to grams from the original unit when this function is activated.
During the weighting process it is possible to modify some tolerance parameters. these parameters are available immediately above the column of the weighted fields. Setting these parameters allows the software to flag each weight according to the target.
1 - The minimum tolerance in percentage. This is the minimum weight below the target quantity to achieve.
2 - The absolute minimum weighable quantity. It is usually related to the precision of the electronic scale.
3 - The maximum tolerance in percentage. This is the maximum amount that can be added to the target quantity.
Each weighted field will display a thin color bar (below the numeric value) identifying the status of the weighting process. Different colors have different meanings:
YELLOW - The weighted quantity is out of tolerance and lower than the target. Additional component must be added.
GREEN - The weighted quantity is within tolerance. No further action required.
RED - The weighted quantity is out of tolerance and higher than the target (see example below). It is possible to use the resize button to recalculate the quantities based on the largest (%) weighted component.
The function allows to insert for each component the scale weight. Minimum and maximum limits (as defined by the tolerance settings) are clearly displayed next to each weight field. All the values are updated in real time following the data received from the scale. The current weight/target ratio can be visualized in both percentage (%) and absolute weight (g).
Buttons are available for specific operations:
