Introduction
The ER-A770 inter-register communication (IRC) system consists of one master machine and
up to 15 satellite machines/remote printers (max. 9 remote printers) which are all interconnected
by the Sharp Retail Network (SRN) to provide data transmission among them. This system
allows the manager to exercise centralized control over the satellites through the master.

2. Open store operation (PGM2 mode) — master and satellite
When the open store operation is performed at the master, the IRC system is opened and the
registration function becomes available at all the machines in the IRC system.
The following types of communications between the master and satellites are allowed;
From the master to the satellite
• Sending a request for the satellite to receive data (T-LOG polling)
• Sending a response to inquiry from the satellite
From the satellite to the master
• Sending a request for T-LOG polling
• Sending data to the T-LOG buffer
• Sending a request for updating of the GLU/PBLU file
• Inquiring for data on the GLU/PBLU and customer files
Open store procedure (PGM2 mode)
Select OPEN STORE from the PGM2 MODE menu and
press the [ENTER] key.
NOTE
• You can also perform the open store operation at each satellite. Once the open store
operation is performed at a satellite, you can make registrations at the satellite. When you
perform the open store operation at the satellites, T-LOG polling will not take place.
• The open store operation cannot be performed at any machines whose terminal numbers
have not been programmed.
• If a transmission error occurs when the open store operation is being performed, the master
displays and prints (journal printer) the machine number of the satellite that encountered the
error. When the master has been programmed to enable the system retry function*, a prompt
to retry the open store operation will be displayed.
* For the system retry function, please refer to pages 57 - 58.
6
3. Close store operation (PGM2 mode) — master and satellite
When the close store operation is performed at the master, the inline system is closed and the
registration function becomes unavailable at all the machines in the inline system. It should be
noted that for the close store operation, all the satellites must be in their SIGN-OFF state. After
this operation, the communications between the master and satellites which have been enabled
with the open store operation are disabled. The master, however, can download preset data and
reset the sales data at satellites.
In the close store state, any key operation in the REG or MGR mode is invalid.
Menu selection
Select CLOSE STORE from the PGM2 MODE menu and
press the [ENTER] key.
NOTE
• You can also perform the close store operation at each satellite. Once the close store
operation is performed at a satellite, you can no longer make registrations at the satellite.
• If a satellite is in the SIGN-ON state, the master encounters an error and displays the machine
number of the satellite.
• When the close store operation is performed, the data remaining in the T-LOG buffers of all
the satellites is collected by the master.
• If a transmission error occurs during the close store operation, the master displays and prints
(journal printer) the machine number of the satellite that has encountered the error.
In this case, a prompt to attempt a retry is displayed when the system retry has been enabled.
7
4. Sign-on operation (server assignment) (REG mode/MGR mode)
The sign-on operation is intended to assign a server to a machine (satellite or the master) and
enable him or her to perform entry operations at the machine.
If a server successfully signs on at a machine, his or her server name appears on the LCD of
the machine.
The server memory is under the control of the master.
The sign-on operation can be done whether the machine is in the open store or close store
state. If the sign-on operation is done at a machine that is in the close store state, registrations
cannot be made at the machine due to the close store condition.
Sign-on procedure
(This procedure is the same as for server assignment at a standalone machine.)
(using menu)
1. Press the [ENTER] key when the mode selection
menu is displayed. Enter your server code and press
the [SERV#] key.
2. The pop-up window for the secret code will open if
secret code is programmed. Enter your secret code
and press the [ENTER] key.
3. The pop-up window for the drawer number will open if
drawer number entry is compulsory. Enter your drawer
number and press the [ENTER] key.
NOTE
• The sign-on operation can be made only for one server at a time.
• If a server attempts to sign on when another server has already signed on, an entry error will
occur (when the stay-down server sign-on has been preset).
• Every server that is preset in the system can sign on at any machine.
• If a server has signed on at a machine, that server cannot sign on at any other machine in the
system until he or she signs off at the original machine.
• In case of trouble, the sign-on state can be cleared at the master. (Please consult your
authorized SHARP dealer for further details.)
8
5. Server sign-on report
A server sign-on report can be generated at the master. This report is used to determine at
which terminal each server has signed on.
Report generation procedure
1. Select “PGM2 MODE” from the mode selection menu
and press the [ENTER] key.
2. Select “INLINE READING” from the PGM2 MODE
menu and press the [ENTER] key.
3. Select “SIGN ON SERVER” from the INLINE
READING menu and press the [ENTER] key.
4. Select “DISPLAY” or “REPORT PRINTER” and press
the [ENTER] key.
Server name, server code, machine no. of
the machine at which the server has signed on
9
6. Sign-off operation
(cancellation of server assignment) (REG mode/MGR mode)
The sign-off operation is intended to cancel the assignment of a server to a machine.
The sign-off operation at a machine (master or satellite) can be done only for the servers who
have signed on at the machine and are not in the middle of a registration entry.
Sign-off procedure
Keyboard entry sequence (REG/MGR/X1/Z1/X2/Z2/PGM1/PGM2 modes)
[SERV#]
NOTE
• The sign-off operation only applies to the server who has signed on.
• If a server signs on at a machine while another server has already signed on, the latter is
automatically signed off so long as items have not yet been entered and the automatic server
sign-off system has been enabled.
For more information, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
10
7. Look-up and updating of the GLU/PBLU file
In the IRC system, the following two types of GLU/PBLU file allocation system are available: a
centralized system and an individual system.
(1) Centralized GLU/PBLU file system
In this system, the GLU/PBLU file exists only in the master. All satellites in the IRC system can
access the GLU/PBLU file in the master for registration.
GLU/PBLU-file-related inline communications are made for the following purposes:
• New order or reorder
• Payment entry or temporary finalization
• Bill printing
• Bill transfer/bill totalizing
• Bill separate
There are two types of GLU/PBLU data transmission.
1) The GLU/PBLU data is transmitted from the master to a satellite for GLU/PBLU file look-up
(in case of a new order/reorder). In this case, the GLU/PBLU reserve counter* is retained at
the master.
* The reserve counter reserves some records of GLU/PBLU files to prevent a “LACKING MEMORY” error in
finalization.
2) The GLU/PBLU data is transmitted from a satellite to the master for finalization of a
transaction (in case of payment entry or temporary finalization).
The data transmitted from the satellite is once saved in the GLU/PBLU data receiving file
and then in the GLU/PBLU file. In this case, the GLU/PBLU reserve counter is cleared at the
master.
If a satellite looks up the GLU/PBLU file in the master or asks the master to update the file,
the backup master performs the same process as the master.
(2) Individual GLU/PBLU file system
In this system, the master and satellites have their own GLU/PBLU files and look up them for
registration. Therefore, no inline communications are made regarding GLU/PBLU data.
11
8. Drive-through function
Depending on the setup of your system, drive-through data is either centrally controlled by the
master or Individually looked up at each terminal. For more information, please contact your
authorized SHARP dealer.
Automatic code generation
Drive-through codes are generated automatically: when the end code for a transaction is
generated, the start code for another transaction is automatically generated.
The start/end codes are programmable in the PGM mode and controlled by the master
depending upon your system setup.
Automatic look-up
As drive-through codes are temporarily finalized by pressing the [SRVC] or [FINAL] key, data for
these codes is automatically looked up in the same sequence as the code was generated.
Drive-through-related inline communications are made for the following purposes:
• New order or re-order
• Payment entry or temporary finalization
• Bill printing
(1) Centralized file system
In this system, the drive-through data is transmitted from the master to a satellite for drivethrough file look-up (in case of a new order/reorder). In this case, the drive-through reserve
counter is retained at the master.
Data is transmitted from a satellite to the master for finalization of a transaction (in case of a
payment entry or temporary finalization). The data transmitted from the satellite is then saved in
the temporary drive-through data receiving file and then in the drive-through file. In this case, the
drive-through reserve counter is cleared at the master.
(2) Individual file system
In this system, the master and satellites have their own drive-through data files. They access
their own drive-through files for new orders or reorders. The drive-through data of the master or
a satellite is saved in its drive-through file for finalization of a transaction (in case of a payment
entry or temporary finalization). Therefore, no inline communications are made regarding drivethrough data.
12
NOTE
The drive-through system provides three types of the terminal operations (Order Taker
Machine/Cashier Station Machine/Counter Machine).

9. T-LOG polling
All REG-mode transaction data in each satellite is saved in its T-LOG buffer. T-LOG polling is a
data collecting system in which the master collects data from the T-LOG buffers in satellites.
T-LOG polling becomes available upon open-store operation and becomes unavailable upon
close store operation.
A request for T-LOG polling is issued from the satellite to the master when the number of data
records in its T-LOG buffer exceeds a predetermined number in the open store state.
As the master detects such a request, it starts collecting the T-LOG buffer data. After collection
of the data from one satellite, the master waits for a preset time and starts collecting data from
another satellite. In T-LOG polling, the data transmitted to the master is stored in the
corresponding file.
The data flow in T-LOG polling is shown below.
Master
(4)
(1)
Satellite A
(2)
(3)
(5)
Satellite B
Satellite C
Satellite D
Polling sequence (see the figure above)
(1) Satellite A makes a request for polling.
(2) The master detects the request and starts collecting T-LOG data from satellite A.
(3) The T-LOG data is sent to the master.
(4) After receiving T-LOG data from satellite A, the master waits for a preset time.
(5) The master detects a request from another satellite (B, C or D) and starts polling for it.
If its T-LOG buffer becomes full, registration will be disallowed at a satellite when it has been
programmed for “LOCK UP,” and allowed when it has been programmed for “CONTINUE.” For
how to specify whether the registration is disabled or enabled when the T-LOG buffer becomes
full, please refer to the ER-A770 instruction manual.
14
10. Communication with a remote printer (option)
When a remote printer is included in the inline system, order data is output to the remote printer
according to preset data on the remote printer.
The remote printer is used to print all or part of the data entered at a machine. It is also called a
kitchen printer. It can also be operated at a location other than the kitchen.
If a remote printer number is assigned to a department or PLU, the information on the
department or PLU is output to the remote printer when an entry for the department or PLU is
made and the transaction is finalized at a machine.
The data which can be output to a remote printer is as follows:
1) Item text
2) Quantity*
3) Unit price*/Price*
4) Amount*
5) PLU/department code*
* Whether to print or not is selectable
(1) Second (back-up) remote printer
A second kitchen printer can be assigned to each remote printer for automatic back-up.
If an error occurs during data output to a remote printer, the data is output to the second
remote printer assigned to it.
If an error occurs during data output to the second remote printer, the data is output to the
receipt printer (the receipt printed at this printer is called a chit).
For how to specify the chit print format, see page 41.
Up to two remote printers can be preset to print data on each item (PLU or department).
If two printers are preset to print data on each item, the data is simultaneously output to
both printers.
If either of these printers encounters an error, the data is output to the backup printer.
If the backup printer encounters an error, one chit receipt is printed.
15
(2) Remote printer send function
This function allows partial food orders to be sent to the remote printers.
Which printer to receive the order is selectable.
The function is intended to allow the cooking staff to begin preparing certain items before
the entire order is given.
*Case 1)
(Item entry)
NK
**Case 2)
NK: 1-9
SEND ORDER
*Case 1)
A partial food order is sent to one or several remote printers which has been specified by
the department/PLU programming.
**Case 2)
A partial food order is sent to the remote printer specified by the system presets.
(3) Priority printing function
It is desirable for the cooking staff to see the order items that require the longest cooking
time at the top of the kitchen chit. This function can send food items in the programmed
order of priority by assigning PLUs to priority groups (1 - 9).
If an error occurs in data output to a remote printer, a corresponding error message
appears on the display and the data output to the remote printer is printed on the chit
receipt.
For remote printer error messages, see page 5.
16
11. Rerouting receipt/journal print data
In restaurant environments, terminals may or may not need a receipt/journal printer.
One external printer connected by RS-232 cable can be shared by two or more ER-A770
machines.

2 Consolidated and Individual Reports
The system can generate two types of sales reports: consolidated reports (reports on all or
specified machines in the system) and individual reports (reports on an individual machine). At
the master, you can generate consolidated reports on all or specified satellites and reports on
the master itself. At each satellite, you can generate certain reports on the satellite.

5. Server report
At the master, you can generate consolidated transaction reports on all servers or individual
servers by reading or resetting operation.
At each satellite, you can generate consolidated transaction reports on individual servers by
reading or resetting operation.
If a specific server is signed on at a machine when resetting operation for a consolidated
individual server report is made at the machine, the data on transactions being handled by the
server is also added and printed out.
If that server is signed on at another machine, the message “IS SIGNED ON” is displayed, thus
the resetting operation for that server cannot be made.

5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for all machines in the IRC
system.
NOTE
In an IRC network, each machine number must be unique.
Do not use the same machine number for more than one machine.
27
2. Setting the terminal numbers (IRC machine numbers) —
master and satellite
It is assumed that your terminal’s setting for inline operations has been performed.
1. Enter the PGM2 mode.
2. Select “INLINE SETTING” and press the [ENTER]
key.
3. Enter a terminal number (0 - 254) and press the
[ENTER] key.
(For programming for BMA MACHINE No. and
SYSTEM RETRY, see pages 31 - 32.)
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 for all machines in the IRC
system.
NOTE
• Terminal numbers must be assigned to the master and each satellite in the IRC system.
(For setting the master’s terminal number, see the next paragraph.)
• If an inline network contains two or more machines with the same terminal number, IRC
communications will not be achieved correctly. Each terminal number must be unique.
• The terminal number should be within the range from 1 to 254.
• If the terminal number “000” is programmed for a machine, it is put in the OFF LINE mode and
cannot take part in IRC communications.
28
3. Creating/updating the master list — master
(1) Creating the master list (subwindow program)
This may only be performed on the pre-designated master.
1. Enter the PGM2 mode.
2. Select “INLINE SETTING” and press the [ENTER]
key.
3. Enter a terminal number (0 - 254) for the master and
then carry out the programming for other INLINE
SETTING items and press the [ENTER] key. The
subwindow for the creation of the master list will open.
(For programming for BMA MACHINE No. and
SYSTEM RETRY, see pages 31 - 32.)
4. Enter the terminal number (1 - 254) for each machine
in the IRC system (for the master and satellites) and
press the [ENTER] key. The subwindow for machine
number entry will open.
5. Enter the machine number (1 - 999999) that
corresponds to the previously entered terminal
number and press the [ENTER] key.
6. Repeat steps 4 to 5 for all machines in the IRC
system. Press the [CA/AT] key to complete the master
list.
7. Proceed to “7. Downloading the contents of the IRC
programming to satellites”, see page 35 — Inline
preset.
29
NOTE
• The terminal numbers and machine numbers of the master and satellites must be entered into
the master list for IRC communications.
• The terminal numbers and machine numbers of up to 16 machines (one master and 15
satellites) can be entered into the master list.
• The terminal number should be within the range from 1 to 254 and the machine number from 1
to 999999.
• A satellite can not perform inline communications unless its terminal and machine numbers
are present in the master list.
• If a machine number which already exists in the master list is entered, a entry error will occur
even when the corresponding terminal number does not exist in the list.
• Pressing the [ENTER] key enters the programmed terminal numbers and machine numbers
on the master. Pressing the [CA/AT] key issues a receipt on the receipt/journal printer when it
exists.
• The terminal numbers for remote printers is not preset.
(2) Deleting a machine from the master list (subwindow program)

select “YES.” If not, select “NO.”
6. Press the [CA/AT] key to complete the master list.
7. Proceed to “7. Downloading the contents of the IRC programming to satellites”, see
page 35 — Inline preset.
NOTE
• You can delete any of the terminal numbers that are in the master list.
• Pressing the [CA/AT] key issues a receipt on the receipt and journal printer (optional).
• Deleting the master from the master list will inhibit all requests of the satellites from being
serviced.
30
4. Specifying whether to enable or disable the system retry
function when a transmission error occurs — master and satellite
You can specify whether the system retry function is disabled or enabled if the communication
between machines does not end successfully.

key.
The INLINE SETTING menu will open.
3. Move the cursor to the “SYSTEM ENTRY” line.
Select “DISABLE” or “ENABLE” with the [ • ] key
(toggle key) and press the [ENTER] key.
NOTE
• If the system retry function is enabled, a transmission job with which an error has occurred is
not finalized immediately, but the master waits for selection of one of the three commands
(RETRY, ABORT and IGNORE) through the keyboard. Then the master retries access to the
satellite that has caused the transmission error or terminates the access as a successful or
unsuccessful transmission depending on the selection made.
• If the function is disabled, the job is terminated immediately.
• The default setting is “ENABLE.”
31
5. Specifying the terminal to serve as a back-up master — master
You can assign one satellite to the function of a back-up master. If the master fails during guest
check operation, the assigned terminal will perform the master’s function.
A machine number within the range from 1 to 999999 can be entered.
If zero is entered, there will be no back-up master in the IRC system.

1. How the IRC back-up system works
The IRC system incorporates a back-up system.
One of the satellites can be designated to serve as a back-up master.
When both the master and back-up master are in order, the system works in the following
sequence:
(1) Each satellite sends updated GLU/PBLU data to the master.
(2) The master receives the data, processes it and sends it back to the satellite.
(3) The satellite sends the updated data to the back-up master.
(4) The back-up master receives the data, processes it and sends it back to the satellite.

(3) Updated data

(4) Processed data

If the master breaks down, the back-up master serves as the master after a master declaration
is made at the back-up master. If the back-up master breaks down, updated data transmission
to it can be stopped by a master declaration at the master. When the master or back-up master
recovers from the breakdown, it resumes its function as the master or back-up master by the
recovery declaring operation.

2. Master declaration
— when the master or back-up master breaks down
When the master or back-up master breaks down, the master declaration procedure should be
taken to inform satellites of the breakdown.
(1) When the master breaks down — Master declaration at the back-up
master
1) A satellite detects a breakdown of the master through the system retry function when it is
sending updated GLU/PBLU data to the master. At this point, the message “NO REPLY/
MASTER” appears in the pop-up window of the display.
NO REPLY/MASTER
* For the system retry function, see pages 57 - 58.
2) The master declaration operation must be done at the back-up master. This operation
informs the other satellites that the master has broken down and the back-up master will
serve as the master hereafter. (During this process, no other operation cannot be done
at each satellite.)
3) Each satellite in the IRC system starts sending updated GLU/PBLU data to the back-up
master.
4) The back-up master processes the received data and sends back the processed data to
each satellite.

(2) When the back-up master breaks down — Master declaration at the
master
1) A satellite detects a breakdown of the back-up master through the system retry function
when it is sending updated GLU/PBLU data to both the master and back-up master. At
this point, the message “NO REPLY/BACKUP” appears in the pop-up window of the
display.
NO REPLY/BACKUP
2) The master declaration operation must be done at the master. This operation causes the
master to inform all satellites of the breakdown of the back-up master.
3) Each satellite in the IRC system sends updated GLU/PBLU data only to the master.
4) The master processes the received data and sends back the processed data to each
satellite.

3. Recovery declaration — when the master
or back-up master recovers from a breakdown
When the master or back-up master recovers from a breakdown, the recovery declaration
operation should be taken to inform satellites of the recovery.
(1) When the master recovers from a breakdown — Recovery declaration at
the back-up master
1) The recovery declaration operation is done at the back-up master.
2) Each satellite stops sending updated GLU/PBLU data to the back-up master.
3) The back-up master sends the updated GLU/PBLU data files to the master.
4) The back-up master informs all satellites of the master’s recovery.
5) The satellites restart sending updated GLU/PBLU data to the master.

2. System retry function
If a satellite terminates a transmission job unsuccessfully, the master either terminates the job
immediately or awaits a command given through the keyboard, depending on whether the
system retry function is disabled or enabled. When the system retry function is enabled, the
master awaits the entry of a command and retries access depending on the command as
explained below.
This function is used in the following cases:
• The master has failed to download preset or updated data to all or some of the satellites.
• The master has failed to upload sales reports from all or some of the satellites.
• The satellite has failed to download data to other machines.
Whether the system retry function is enabled or disabled when a transmission error occurs
is programmed at the master. (See “4. Specifying whether to enable or disable the system
retry function when a transmission error occurs” on page 31.)
(1) When the system retry function is disabled:
The master terminates the transmission job immediately in the following two ways.
If none of the satellites have successfully transmitted data, the transmission is regarded as
having ended with an error, which is equivalent to ABORT as discussed below.
If there is any satellite which has successfully transmitted data, the transmission is regarded
as either successful or unsuccessful depending on the type of transmission job. In this
case, the transmission regarded as successful and the one regarded as unsuccessful are
equivalent to IGNORE and ABORT, respectively both of which are explained below.
(2) When the system retry function is enabled:
If a transmission error occurs, the number and error state of the satellite in which the error
has occurred and the relevant menu will appear on the display and the master awaits the
entry of one of the following commands given through the keyboard:
57
A) RETRY command (selection from the menu or press of the 1 key)
B) ABORT command (selection from the menu or press of the 2 key)
C) IGNORE command (selection from the menu or press of the 3 key)
(* If there are only RETRY and IGNORE on the menu, press the 2 key.)
A) RETRY command:
When RETRY is selected, the master attempts a RETRY to the satellite; however, it does
not retry when, due to the type of error (for example, command error), it is obvious that the
RETRY will fail. This means that the master will not gain access if errors that have occurred
during transmission are such types of errors.
B) ABORT command:
When ABORT is selected, the master terminates access to the satellite and regards the
transmission as having unsuccessfully ended. However, in the case of program data
downloading, the ABORT command may be issued only when all the satellites accessed are
in the error state.
C) IGNORE command:
When IGNORE is selected, the master terminates access to the satellite, regards the
transmission as having successfully ended and prints only transmitted data.
If no satellites have successfully transmitted data, the IGNORE command may be issued to
the master in the case of sales data inquiry (X report), though the result is not printed.
[Retry during sales data inquiry]
During resetting, the CANCEL command may be given only when every accessed satellite is
in the error state. The IGNORE and RETRY commands are available unconditionally.
