Calibrating Packaging Items:
Calibration requires between 10 and 100 samples of packaging items such as elastic bands, paper clips, plastic sleeves, etc. (Use only elastic bands with consistent width and diameter. Paper rolls should be calibrated using paper from the smallest coin denomination).

Select CALIBRATE PACKAGE from the calibration menu.
Select the type of package to be calibrated from the package menu
Select SAMPLE QUANTITY of packaging items (10 to 100) to be used for calibration.
Select
USED QUANTITY (1-15, number of packaging items used to make a package).
Example: 10 notes are wrapped with a single elastic band and than 10 lots of those are wrapped with 2 elastic bands.
Used quantity = 10 x 1 + 2 = 12.

Select
START CALIBRATION, press ENT key and follow the screen prompts.
Calibrating Banknotes:
The counter is supplied calibrated for a particular currency or currencies (model NCS15BM) and normally does not require recalibration. Currency calibration requires at least 50 banknotes and 50 coins of the denominations to be calibrated. Refer to General Calibration Requirements prior to calibration.

To enter calibration, switch the counter off and press ESC key.

Follow the same procedure as above.
Banknote Tolerance:
No calibration is required to adjust the banknote tolerance and maximum quantity. The feature allows tolerance adjustment of individual denominations and applies to loose banknotes only. Default settings normally do not require change.
Higher tolerance generally means higher counting (acceptance) rate but increases a possibility of counting errors. Lower tolerance means lower counting rate with decreased possibility of counting errors. By increasing tolerance of lower denominations and decreasing tolerance of higher denominations a compromise can be reached between counting rate and a possibility of counting errors.

Switch the counter off and press ESC key.
