We will be discussing the scale integration in order to convert a scale into a cloud scale that will be accessible by Razor.
Our current scale we interface with is a AVERY Scale. We have decided to use the SMA protocal as our core code base to send commands.
The core command to send to pull back the total weight is: <LF>W<CR>
You can use this application to test.

- Avery Scales must be set as a Server for the scale head interface
- There are typically 2 protocals you can set the head to receive.
- Option 1: Enquiry Mode. In this mode, to receive weight you must use a Capital W to retrieve the weight back.
Option 2: SMA Mode: In this mode if the razor application is set for SMA commands, you must use the command <LF>W<CR>
Below is an example of a properly setup Razor Scale Application:
