Determine another location to place weights

Overview

The Split Angle option lets you calculate a new location for the weights if you cannot place them at the location specified in the balance correction. The two available angular locations should be close to, and at each side of, the original solution’s location.

Note: Discrete weight positions are converted into continuous positions.

Procedure

  1. From the Balance main menu, press ALT > F6 Calculator Mode > F2 Split Angle.
  2. Set the following options as necessary.
    Option Description
    F2 View Balance Corr.

    View the last calculated balance correction. This option displays only if the analyzer calculated a balance correction and you accessed Split Angle from the Trim Run Applied Weight menu.

    F3 Enter Desired Weight Enter the desired weight (typically the calculated correction weight) up to 10,000, or import it from the Balance Correction menu. The default is 0.

    If you defined discrete weight positions (Advanced Mode only), they are converted to continuous positions.

    F4 Enter Desired Angle Enter the desired location (typically the calculated correction angle) in degrees for the weight, or import it from the Balance Correction menu. The default is 0. If you defined discrete weight positions (Advanced Mode only), they are converted to continuous positions.
    F9 Enter Available Angle1 Enter the first available angle position in degrees. The default is 0.
    F10 Enter Available Angle2 Enter the first available angle position. The default is 0.
  3. Press F1 Calculate Solution.
    The Split Angle Solution screen displays the new calculated weight locations. To change the rotation direction for this plot, press F6 Toggle Direction Rotation.
  4. If you opened Split Angle from a trim run, press F12 Insert to Trim Weight to send the calculated solution to the Trim Run Applied Weight entry screen.
  5. Press F7 Split Angle Calc. to exit and return to the calculation screen.
