Introduction
Master Editor
To access the Master Editor from a model 8361, 8461, or UC-ST, press the SETUP key.
The Choose Setup Mode message will appear. Touch the MASTER EDITOR key.
The Master Editor will time out
after 20 minutes of inactivity if idle
in the Master Editor Mode. While
one scale is in the Master Editor,
other scales or a host cannot
communicate with the master.
Master Editor Main Menu
If another scale is currently accessing the Master Editor, the message MASTER EDITOR
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE will be displayed and you will need to try again at a later
time. If you are not communicating with the master (you are off-line), an ERROR
COMMUNICATING WITH THE MASTER message will be displayed, and you will need to
re-establish communication before continuing.
Otherwise, the numeric keyboard will be displayed prompting for a password. If no
password has been programmed, just touch ENTER. When the Master Editor menu
opens, the current access level, department number, software version, and the Master's

Master Editor, Edit Menu
This chapter covers functions found under the Edit Menu in the Master Editor.
Master Editor Edit Menu
Edit-PLU Record
The EDIT-PLU RECORD menu is used to create and edit PLU records. All of the fields in
a PLU can be edited here.
To begin editing, touch EDIT followed by PLU RECORD to display the numeric keyboard
for the entry of the PLU number.
Add a PLU
To add a new PLU, enter a PLU number that has not been used through the numeric
keyboard. A PLU NOT FOUND message will appear with 3 options. Touch CANCEL to
return to the numeric keyboard, ADD ACTIVE to add an active PLU, or ADD PENDING to
add a pending PLU. When adding new PLUs, you will be prompted for all of the fields of
the PLU. An Active PLU record will be immediately added to the database. A Pending
PLU can have a future activation date. A Pending PLU record becomes an Active record
when it is activated.
You will be prompted to add information to the valid fields one at a time. You can quit at
any time and return to edit the PLU information. Refer to the following sections for details
on valid data for each of the fields. If you quit and return later to edit the new PLU, you
will see all of the fields on two screens as shown in the following section titled “PLU Edit
Screen”.

SmartTouch Master User's Guide
Edit a PLU
To edit an existing PLU, enter the number through the numeric keyboard or choose one
through the list.
Choosing a PLU Record to edit
After a PLU has been entered, the data base is searched for all records with a matching
PLU number within the current department. A list of active and pending PLU records will
be displayed. Only one active record is allowed per PLU.
Price Change Only (PCO) Pending
PLUs can be sent from a host
(such as Intelli-Net) to the Master.
When using the Master Editor, PCO
Pending PLUs will only show the
PLU/Item numbers, price, and
effective time/date. A PCO Pending
PLU cannot be edited or deleted in
the Master Editor.
To return to the numeric keyboard, touch QUIT. To edit an existing record, touch that
record and the PLU Edit screen will display.
To add a pending record, touch **** ADD PENDING PLU RECORD **** and the PLU
Edit screen will display with the data copied from the active record (or the oldest
pending record, if no active record exists).
If Obsolete PLUs are enabled in the master, an obsolete PLU will be created when the
pending record takes effect. The Obsolete PLU will take on the accumulator of the
original PLU and the effective time and date of the pending PLU. The new PLU
accumulators will be zero.
If a pending record exists but an active record does not, there will be an **** ADD
ACTIVE PLU RECORD **** box as well. When this box is touched, the PLU Edit screen
will appear with the data copied from the oldest existing pending record.

Edit-PLU Record
PLU Edit Screen
The PLU Edit Screen is used when the entire PLU record needs to be modified. (If only
one field of the active PLU needs to be modified, this can be done through the Quick
menu option).
Touching QUIT displays a SAVE CHANGES prompt. Touch YES to save changes and
return to the numeric keyboard, NO to return to the numeric keyboard without saving
changes, or CANCEL to return to the PLU Edit screen.
Touching DELETE displays a confirmation screen. Touch YES to delete the record and
return to the numeric keyboard or NO to return to the PLU Edit screen. The DELETE key is
only available when editing existing PLUs.

PLU Fields
PLU Number
The PLU number can be from one to six digits (1-999999) and must be unique within
the current department. If it is not, a PLU NUMBER ALREADY EXISTS message is
displayed and the PLU numeric keyboard is redisplayed. When the PLU record is saved,
all other records (pending or active) for that PLU in the current department will have their
PLU number automatically changed to the new number. This is the only field that
automatically updates other records with the same PLU number.
Item Number
The Item number can be from one to 10 digits, but the bar code may only use the 5 or
6 least significant digits depending on the barcode format. If the master has been set up
for unique item numbers (located in Master editor, Config Menu, PLU record defaults)
and the item number entered is not unique, an ITEM NUMBER ALREADY EXISTS
message is displayed and the item number numeric keyboard is redisplayed.
Description
Up to four lines of description are allowed per PLU record. An alphanumeric keyboard is
presented for editing each line of description. Each line may be up to 32 characters
long. (Note: The label format may need to be revised in order to accommodate the
additional lines of description if the master software is Version 3.2 or above.)
PLU Type
PLU types are pricing modes, including Price Per Pound, Pounds For, Price Per Half
Pound, Price Per Quarter Pound, By Count, Standard Pack, and Manual. The choice of
PLU type affects some of the menu options for the PLU Edit screen. If a change in PLU
type is made that changes one of these options, the default value for the new option is
assigned.
Pounds/Count
This field changes depending on the PLU type. For Pounds For PLUs, this field is titled
POUNDS and when selected presents a numeric keyboard for the entry of the number of
pounds (default = 1). For By Count and Std Pack PLUs, it is titled COUNT and when
selected presents a numeric keyboard for the entry of the number items (default = 1).
For Price Per Pound, Price Per Half Pound, Price Per Quarter Pound, and Manual PLUs
this field is blank and disabled.
Tare1/Ounces
This field changes depending on the PLU type. For Price Per Pound, Price Per Half
Pound, Price Per Quarter Pound, and Pounds For PLUs, this field is titled TARE1 and
when selected presents a numeric keyboard for the entry of the tare weight (default =
0.00). For Std Pack PLUs, it is titled OUNCES and when selected presents a numeric
keyboard for the entry of the number of ounces in a pack. For By Count or Manual
PLUs, this field is blank and disabled.
Tare2
This field changes depending on the PLU type. For Price Per Pound, Price Per Half
Pound, Price Per Quarter Pound, and Pounds For PLUs, this field is titled TARE2 and
when selected, a SELECT TARE2 TYPE screen is presented. Tare2 can be a fixed weight
or forced so that the operator must enter the tare. A PERCENTAGE option is displayed
but functions as the FIXED WEIGHT tare. If FIXED WEIGHT or PERCENTAGE are selected,
a numeric keyboard prompts for the values of a tare weight (default=0.00). If FORCED
is selected, the word FORCED appears in that field. This tare is available for the situation
when 2 different tares are needed for the same product (ex. - with meat products, one
tare is for the back room, and one tare is for the counter, after the meat has been repackaged). For the older equipment (8422/23/27/8305), the TARE2 value is not
interpreted and the TARE1 value is automatically used. With the Model 8360, 8361,
2-4
Chapter 2: Master Editor, Edit Menu
Edit-PLU Record
8460, and 8461 SmartTouch® satellites, the TARE value used is chosen through the
Unit Setup menu (see the specific model’s service manual for setup information). For By
Count, Standard Pack, and Manual PLUs, this field is blank and disabled.
Unit Price/Total Price
This field changes depending on the PLU type. For Price per Pound, Price Per Half
Pound, Price Per Quarter Pound, and Pounds For PLUs, this field is titled UNIT PRICE
and when selected presents a numeric keyboard for the entry of the unit price (default =
$0.00). For By Count and Standard Pack, it is titled TOTAL PRICE and when selected
presents a numeric keyboard for the entry of the total price (default = $0.00). For
Manual PLUs this field is blank and disabled.
Shelf Life
The Shelf Life is represented by the number of days after the pack (current) date and can
be in the range of 0 to 999 (default = 0).
Use By Day
A numeric keyboard is presented for the entry of the use by (eat by) days. The value is
represented by the number of days after the pack (current) date and can be in the range
of 0 to 999 (default = 0).
Group
A numeric keyboard is presented for the entry of the group number (1-500). Once a
group number is assigned in a department, it can not be used by any other department.
When the groups are listed (through the numeric keyboard) or printed, only the groups
for the chosen department will be displayed. If a new group number is chosen that is
already in use by another department, a GROUP NUMBER ALREADY ASSIGNED
message will display and you must choose a different group number. When a new
group number is entered, the alphanumeric keyboard will display for the entry of a 10character group name.
Grade
A numeric keyboard is presented for the entry of the grade number (1-16) or touch LIST
to choose from the list of grade records.
Text Number
A numeric keyboard is presented for the entry of the text number (1-999999). If a new
text number is selected, an EXTRA TEXT RECORD NOT FOUND message will display
with three options. Touching ADD EXTRA TEXT presents a numeric keyboard requesting
the number of characters per line (1-54, default = 42) and then advances to the Extra
Text Edit screen. If no QWERTY keyboard is attached an error message is shown.
Touching COPY FROM TEXT RECORD presents a numeric keyboard (with the list option)
requesting the extra text number of the extra text record you wish to copy and then
advances to the Extra Text Edit screen with the copied extra text displayed. Touch
CANCEL to return to the extra text numeric keyboard.
Note: The QWERTY keyboard is required. Up to 60 lines of extra text can be entered.
When finished editing, press F10 on the QWERTY keyboard to save and exit or ESC to
exit without saving.

are assigned a number and downloaded to the Master through a host. Refer to the
MTSmartX manual for more information about downloading graphics images.

keypad. Touch CLEAR to void any special pricing entries.
The "List Price" is always a higher value than the regular unit price. It is similar to a
"Mfg. Suggested Retail Price". Using this type of pricing will not require the POS software
to make any new calculations. The regular total price (the lower amount) will print in the
barcode and the customer receives the discounted total price.

Select Label Template
The Label Template determines how the data is printed and which data is printed.
Touch the appropriate box to determine the template for the Nutrition Facts label.
Vertical - The vertical template is a variable length template printed with text
perpendicular to the direction of label movement. It can use either the standard data
set or the simplified data set. To specify the following formats, select the Vertical
template, then select either the standard or simplified data type.
Note: METTLER TOLEDO has applied
for and FDA has verbally approved a
variance for METTLER TOLEDO products
to use 2 lines to print "Calories" and
"Calories from fat" instead of a single line.
• Vertical Standard: The Vertical Standard format is the normal format used for
Nutritional information. All other formats are variations of this format and can
only be used in special applications. See 21 CFR part 101.9(d). The Vertical
Standard format includes all of the required fields and those voluntary fields that
do not have a blank value. This format also has a footnote that includes the
recommended Daily Value for a 2000 and 2500 calorie diet.
Vertical Standard Nutrifacts Format
Note: The FDA places restrictions
on the use of this template based
on available display panel area,
ref 21 CFR part 101.9(j)(13).
• Vertical Simplified: The Vertical Simplified format can be used in place of the
Vertical Standard format when one of the following conditions are met:
1. The food contains insignificant amounts of 7 or more of the required
items not including "Calories from saturated fat".
2. The food is intended for a child less than 2 years of age and contains
insignificant amounts of 6 or more of the required items not including
"Calories from saturated fat", "Saturated Fat", and "Cholesterol".
* See 21 CFR part 101.9(f).
The operator must determine if the conditions are met. The Vertical Simplified
format includes all of the required fields and those voluntary fields that do not
have a blank value. The required fields that are indicated by an asterisk in the
Nutrition Fields chart will not print in the main Nutrition Facts table when they
are present in insignificant amounts, but will print in the footnote. This footnote
lists all of the required fields that are present in insignificant amounts following
the words "Not a significant source of . . ." .

Nutrition Fact Fields
*Note: The Serving Size and
Servings per Container fields
are the exception. For the
Serving Size units, a screen
will be presented to choose
OZ, PIECES, TEXT, or
CANCEL.
The master will prompt you for all of the *fields (required and voluntary) in a Nutrition
Fact record. In all cases, it is the responsibility of the operator to enter the correct values,
paying special attention to units and increments. The scale will simply print the
information that is entered with the unit symbol for the units that were requested without
doing a "validity check" of any type.
When entering data through the numeric keyboard, touching BLANK for a required field
will set the value to zero, while touching BLANK for a voluntary field will leave the field
blank and it will not be printed. In general, the fields followed by a "%" sign refer to the
Percent Daily Value for that field based on a 2000 calorie diet. This calculation is not
checked within the scale.
If at any time you want to exit the editing screens, touch CLEAR (or CANCEL from the
alphanumeric keyboard) until the SAVE CHANGES prompt appears. At this point, touch
YES to save the record (unmodified fields will stay at their default values), or touch NO
or CANCEL to exit without saving the record.
If all of the fields have been modified (or blanked), the SAVE CHANGES prompt
automatically appears. Touch YES to save or touch NO or CANCEL to disregard all of the
data entered. Touching CANCEL displays the SAVE CHANGES prompt. Touch YES to
save or touch NO to disregard any data entered. Either situation will return to the
Nutrition Facts Number numeric keyboard.
Touching OZ or PIECES presents a numeric keyboard for the entry of the number of
ounces/pieces, followed by a numeric keyboard to enter the serving size in grams.
(FDA rules specify the conversion 1 oz. = 28 grams. The scale does not check this
calculation.) The scale then automatically calculates the Servings per Container.
Touching TEXT prompts you to enter the serving size (limit is 28 characters or less
depending on the template used) followed by the number of servings per container
(limit 10 characters).
Edit Nutrition Facts
To edit an existing Nutrition Facts Record, enter an existing Nutrition Facts number through
the numeric keyboard or choose from the list. The Nutrition Facts Edit Screen will
display.
After editing the record, touching QUIT displays a SAVE CHANGES prompt. Touch YES to
save changes and exit, NO to exit without saving changes, or CANCEL to return to the
Nutrition Facts Edit screen.
Touching DELETE displays a confirmation screen. Touch YES to delete the record and
exit, or NO to return to the edit screen. The DELETE key is only available when editing
existing NF records.
Touching UP or DOWN (when available), moves up or down one page. There are a

COOL Text
This function can be used to edit or add Cool Text. The text and associated links for
Production Country, and Pre Text must first exist in the STEM/REM before the literals are
linked together using this function. The COOL Text that is presented at the scale is pulled
from the lists that are created in the scale or transmitted from a host. Refer to Chapter 9
for additional information on COOL. The COOL Text must be in the 0-4999999 range.
The 500000-999999 range is reserved for the COOL Text literals used to populate the
lists.
COOL Text consists of a record (1-499999) that chains the literals (individual texts)
together in a list that is used by the scale to populate the COOL Text lists locally in the
scale. Different lists can be created for different types of products or locations and
assigned to the PLU record. Refer to Chapter 9 for additional information on COOL.
COOL Text is created by chaining Text records from the Production, Country, and Pre text
lists (similar to chaining Extra Text records).
Using the keyboard, enter the COOl text number(s) you wish to link.. Enter in the +
symbol between COOL text numbers to be linked.

Host Port Setup Screen
The selections for the Host Port configuration are as follows:
7-6
Baud Rate
The baud rate (in Kilobytes) can be selected from 1.2k to 115.2k. This
must match the baud rate of the host or WinDataBack. The default is 9600
baud. Note: High speed UARTS are recommended on the PC serial port for
speeds above 9.6k baud.
Parity
Select Even, Odd, Low, High, and Off can be selected. Use EVEN parity for
Intelli-Net and DataBack. (Note: Off and No parity are the same.) The
default is EVEN.
Stop Bits
Selections are 1, 1.5, and 2. Use 1 Stop Bit for WinDataBack. The default
is 1.
Data Bits
Selections are 5, 6, 7, and 8 data bits (sometimes called “word length”).
Use 7 data bits for WinDataBack. The default is 7.
Time Out
This selection is used to end host communications if no response is
detected. The default is 20000mS (milliseconds).
Flow Control
This selects hardware, software, or no handshaking. Flow Control sets up
communication between the host device and a peripheral that will start
and stop data transfer to prevent an overflow condition. Use NONE with
WinDataBack. The default is NONE.
Chapter 7: Master Editor, Configuration Menu
Host ID
Database Diagnostics
The Host ID is used by a host computer to communicate with a specific
device. This number must match the number programmed at the host to
identify this master. ID numbers from 1 to 99 can be used, but must not
be duplicated if other units are connected to the host. NOTE: POWER
MASTER DOWN AFTER CHANGING THE HOST ID TO RESET THE ID IN
MEMORY. The default is 01. The Ethernet Host communication will also
use this address to identify the master.
Host Interface
If using an old host protocol (host thinks master is an 8422-type master),
this selection is used to configure the external host communications for a
6-digit PLU or a 4-digit PLU database.
Database Diagnostics
This section is used for a factory diagnostic tool and should not be changed.
Setup Master
Note: If the application software is
updated, you will need to either use
LOAD_IP2.EXE to set the IP address
or connect the REM to a TNET
satellite in order to first connect to
the master editor. LOAD_IP2 is
explained in the “PC and Network
Interfacing” chapter.
This section is defines master defaults including Weighing Units (lb/kg), Weight
Increment, Currency increment, Currency Symbol, Date Format, Date Separator, and
Time Format. Touch the Page Down key to display Barcode Style, Obsolete PLUs, and
Master IP Address. When Obsolete PLUs are enabled, creating a regular pending PLU or
PCO (Price Change Only) PLU will automatically create an Obsolete PLU with the old
price, accumulators, effective time/date. The new PLU will have zero accumulators.
The DHCP features will allow the client scale or scale server to obtain initial TCP/IP
parameters from a DHCP or BOOTP server on the Ethernet network instead of manually
setting these parameters.

Server IP
Description
This is the REM current IP address. If the “Network” is set to “Automatic”,
this field cannot be changed. If the “Network” is set to “Manual” then this
field may be changed. The IP address is entered one octet at a time. The
default value for this field is 255.255.255.000.
Local Use Networks - If the Ethernet network is local, arbitrary numbers
can be selected for the IP Address. The IP Address consists of a group of
four numbers from 0 to 255, separated by periods, for example:
207.142.140.101. Do not duplicate numbers on the network.
Use on Networks Connected to the Internet - If the network connects to
the Internet, the network IP addresses must be obtained and registered
with American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN, http://www.arin.net).
When used on the Internet, the IP Address is used to specify hosts and
networks. Internet Protocol (IP) numbers are part of a global,
standardized scheme for identifying machines that are connected to the
Internet. A Network Administrator or System Engineer should be consulted
on these issues.
Server Host Port
TCP port number used for host communications. A 4-digit value may be
entered from the numeric screen. The default value for this field is 2305
and should not be changed for most configurations.
Server Name
Local domain name for the REM. All other devices on the network will
reference the REM by using this name when the “Network” is set to
“Automatic”. If more than one REM or STEM is used on a network, each
STEM must have a unique name. If not, only one REM or STEM will be
functional and allow connection by clients.
Server MAC
Hardware Media Access Control (MAC) address. Each Ethernet device
has a unique 6-byte MAC address. This field is displayed but cannot be
changed.
Subnet Mask
The Subnet Mask is used to identify the local network when accessing IP
address on the Ethernet network. If the “Network” is set to “Automatic” this
field cannot be changed.
If the “Network” is set to “Manual” this field may be changed. The mask
is entered one octet at a time. The default value for this field will be
255.255.255.000. For a Subnet Mask on a local network, use an
unused address such as 255.255.255.0.
A subnet mask is used with an IP address to subdivide a network into
smaller networks, allowing a greater number of nodes on a network with
a single IP address. The Subnet Mask is the part of the IP address used
to represent a sub network within a logical network. By using Subnet
Masks, network address space is available that would normally be
unavailable. Subnet Masks also ensure broadcasts are not sent to the
whole network unless intended.
The default Subnet Mask, 255.255.255.0, is recommended to reduce
network traffic. When Subnet Mask, 255.255.255.0 is used, the
broadcast range would be the local Subnet only as follows:
255.255.255.0
Subnet Mask
207.142.140.XXX IP Address with a broadcast range of XXX.
255.255.0.0
Subnet Mask
207.142.XXX.XXX IP Address with a broadcast range of XXX.XXX
Using the Subnet Mask, 255.255.255.0, improves network performance
by reducing broadcast traffic.
Router
The router’s (default gateway) IP address. The router is used when
accessing devices outside of the local network. If the “Network” is set to
“Automatic” this field cannot be changed. If the “Network” is set to
“Manual” this field may be changed. The IP address is entered one octet
at a time. The default value for this field will be 255.255.255.000.

COOL Text
Overview
Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) is information assigned to a specific PLU that
designates where a product came from and the processing it went through.
In many ways COOL records (Country of Origin Labeling) are treated very similar to
ingredients records. COOL records must be assigned to a PLU in order to print, exactly
how Ingredient information works.
COOL implementation involves a combination of COOL Text Records, COOL Production
Text Records, COOL Countries and possibly COOL Pretext.
COOL Records
COOL Text
COOL Text records contain the complete statement of how the product was harvested
and where it was harvested. Common examples of a COOL Text record are “Wild
Caught” or “Product of USA”.
Multiple COOL Texts can be chained together to give an operator more selections. This is
useful for a retailer that purchases an identical product from multiple countries.
Production Text
Production text are statements in the list such as “Produced in”, “Processed in”.
Production text is created the same way as COOL Text.
Country Text
Country text is a list of countries and the individual country names (literals). Country text
and text lists are created the same as COOL Text as described above.
Pre Text
Pre Text is a word or phrase that prints before the COOL Text on a label. Pre Text is
programmed into the PLU record and cannot be overridden by the operator. Pre text and
text lists are created the same as COOL Text as described above.

Remote Access
There are three ways to access the STEM or REM for configuration and programming:
Remote host, TNET Satellite, or Ethernet Client. However, if the STEM/REM is new, the
network setup must first be performed using a TNET Satellite or by RS232 Serial Host
using WinDataBack. The Ethernet Client and Ethernet Host will not work in this case
because the network settings would not be configured yet.

Rackmount Ethernet Master
General Description
The Rackmount Ethernet Master
will be referred to as either
Ethernet Master or REM.
The METTLER TOLEDO® REM (Rackmount Ethernet Master) is designed for connection
to a network of METTLER TOLEDO TNET Satellite or Ethernet Client scales and controllers
through a wired RS485 high-speed network, a wired Ethernet network, or a wireless
Ethernet network. The REM will support both TNET and Ethernet scales. Each REM can
support up to 24 TNET satellites and 25 Ethernet Clients. The REM acts as the server on
the network providing the satellites and clients with PLU file information. Any
SmartTouch® satellite or Ethernet Client (Model 8361, 8461, or UC-ST) on the network
can access the REM master editor for setup and programming.
Models that can be connected to the REM include: Model 355, 2450, 8361, 8450,
8461, and UC-ST.
Programming functions in the REM are identical to the SmartTouch® Master and STEM
(SmartTouch Ethernet Master).

Function
I1
ON when receiving and processing host commands.
I2
When flashing (downloading) operating system software, this LED will be ON. In
normal operation, if an error is detected in the master program, the LED will be ON.
Normally this LED is OFF.
I3
This LED will alternately flash ON / OFF with LED I4 while the master software is
starting up. This will last for about 3 seconds. Afterwards, this LED indicates TNET
communications. When no TNET satellites are detected, the LED will be blinking at a
slow rate. It will actually look dim at this rate. If TNET satellites are detected, the LED
will be turned ON more during most of the blinking and will look brighter.
I4
This LED will alternately flash ON / OFF with LED I3 while the master software is
starting up. This will last for about 3 seconds. This LED should be ON during normal
operations. If it is not ON, the software has failed to properly start.
I5
(BSE) This LED will be ON when the Ethernet controller is being accessed. If data
packets are received or transmitted this LED will be ON briefly.
I6
(RX) This LED will be ON whenever Ethernet data packets are received for the
master.
I7
(LNK) This LED will be ON if the master is properly connected and communicating to
a hub.
I8
(TX) This LED will be ON whenever the master transmits Ethernet data packets.

Agency Approvals
The REM is designed to meet the requirements of the following agencies:
UL
FCC
UL114 Office Appliances and Business Equipment. UL746.51
Requirements for FCC Conducted Emissions and Radiated Emissions for a
Class A device.
TNET Communications
The master/satellite communication network (TNET) uses RS485 Synchronous Data
Link Communication (SDLC) at 345k baud. A transformer provides isolation with no DC
connection between the scales. A four-conductor modular connector telephone cable is
used to connect each scale to the network. The maximum recommended data cable
length is 1500 feet (457 meters), including the 25-ft scale drops. The ends of the main
data cable must be terminated using a 113-ohm resistor (P/N 12839300A provided
with each master) to provide impedance matching. The master can be located at any
point on the network. However, when nearing the maximum cable length of 1500 feet,
the master should reside near the middle.

Memory Board
The REM is available with 2 MB, 4 MB, or 8 MB (MB = megabyte) battery-backed RAM
Memory PCB's. The RAM is battery-backed and is supported when AC power is
disconnected from the unit for up to two years (depending on the time the unit is
disconnected from AC power). The alkaline battery is not recharged on the PCB. Size
requirements can be computed using the following record size specifications.
•
Each PLU record uses 330 bytes.
•
Extra Text uses up to 3240 bytes (not including 13 bytes overhead). The extra text
formula is: (Lines x #characters per line)+ 13= #bytes required. For example: 10
lines x 42 char/line = 420 bytes per record. (60 lines max.)
•
Nutrifact records use 393 bytes per record.
•
Graphics can be up to 6k per record.

Host Interface
Two types of serial host hardware interfaces are available on the host port: RS232 and
RS422 Multidrop. The host can also communicate using standard Ethernet Host
interfaces. The serial interface is selected by connecting to the appropriate pins on the
DB9 connector on the I/O Connector PCB. The RS232 interface is for a single device
connected directly to a host computer or modem for full asynchronous communication.
The cable length using the RS232 interface is limited to 100 feet (30.5 meters). RS422
must be used when the distance of the cable may exceed 100 feet, or if there will be
more than one master or standalone scale connected on the host network. The
maximum cable length when using RS422 is 1200 feet (366 meters). The REM is
multi-tasking and can perform complete host communication in the background while
servicing requests from the satellite scales.

Installation Guidelines
Installation Guidelines
Maximum Ambient Temperature
Maximum Ambient Temperature (Tmra) for operation of the REM is 40ºC, measured
inside the enclosure. When the REM is installed in a closed or multi-rack assembly, the
internal operating ambient (inside the enclosure) may be greater than the room ambient
temperature. In this case, consideration must be given the difference in ambient
temperature between the room and inside the enclosure.
Minimum Ambient Temperature
Minimum Ambient Temperature for operation of the REM is 0ºC.
Reduced Air Flow – Mounted REM
The REM is designed for mounting only in a standard rack assembly between other rack
units. Allow 1/2" between the REM on the top and bottom of the rear enclosure to other
mounted units. The REM case is designed with a wider face mounting plate and a narrower
enclosure to automatically provide this space. Do not mount other types of rack
enclosures next to the REM where the rear enclosure may protrude beyond the plane of
the mounting faceplate and reduce the minimum clearance required by the REM.
Electrical Supply
The electrical current draw of the REM is rated at 0.5A at 100 VAC to 240 VAC. This
must be taken into consideration when connecting the unit to electrical power with other
rack units to avoid overloaded circuits. The amperage rating of all components
connected to one circuit must not exceed the rated amperage of the circuit.
Avoid connecting this unit to circuits with heating elements, electrical motors, fluorescent
lights, thermostats, etc. Electronic components should be on separate electrical circuits
(including the ground) of sufficient amperage.
Grounding
All units must be connected to a reliable earth ground. If a power strip is used, the
power strip must include a ground circuit.

Rack Mounting
When installing on a rack or cabinet unit, exercise care to mount the REM securely in
the rack using the recommendations of the rack manufacturer.
Pre-2007 REMs (REM0-5200) are designed for direct mounting in a standard 19” rack
or rack cabinet. Mounting screws are supplied with the REM. Follow the rack
manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure the rack assembly is secure from tipping.
The REM0-5210 is also designed for rack mounting. The extender brackets must be
attached prior to mounting on a standard 19” rack, or rack cabinet.
Attach the brackets with the screws provided by lining up the holes of the short side of
the bracket to the body of the REM. After the brackets have been attached follow the rack
manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure the rack assembly is secure from tipping.
Note: the brackets can be attached to the REM body at either the “front” or “back” of the
unit. Placement is determined by customer preference as to which side of the unit is to
be viewed.
