BEETLE /i8A-3
Starting up the system
After installing the BEETLE /i8A-3, switch on the POS system using the
ON/OFF button on the front panel and the power switch on the power
supply.
The system first performs an automatic self-test to test its basic functions.
For example, you may see the following message (irrespective of processor
type) on the four-line cashier display or on the monitor:
WN ID xx/xx Datum
xx/xx is the placeholder of the BIOS version number.
The system then determines the medium from which the operating system
and POS application are to be booted. Each medium is assigned a logical
drive according to the configuration of your BEETLE /i8A-3.
The following media can be assigned a drive:
n
Network
n
Hard disk
n
DVD
n
USB drive
The logical drives are designated C: and D:.
The network is always assigned to the C: drive during the runup procedure.
The hard disk can be assigned to the C: or D: drive. The system can only be
started from the hard disk if the disk has been configured as the C: drive.
Corresponding to the Setup configuration the modular BEETLE /i8A-3
system can be booted from the following drives:
BEETLE /i8A-3
39
n
Hard Disk in drive C:
n
DVD
n
LAN module with BOOTPROM
n
USB drive
Please mind that the storage medium must be system-boot-capable.
If the POS system does not find a DVD, it automatically continues the
loading process from drive C:.
If the operating system has started up without error, the POS application
software is automatically booted if necessary.
A message is displayed as soon as the BEETLE is ready for operation. For
more detailed information, see the description of your application program.

Glossary
Bit
A bit is a binary digit (0 or 1). It is the smallest unit used in data processing.
Controller
Serves to control data input and output in a data processing system or
between a computer and the connected peripherals.
CPU
Abbreviation of central processing unit. It includes the main components of
a data processing system. The CPU monitors all operations and provides
data and programs. It comprises the control unit for input and output, the
computer and the main memory, divided into ROM and immediate access
storage.
DVI
It is a new standard for digital data transfer. A DVI connection transfers a
digital signal to the monitor without converting it to analog, thereby making
sure that no information is lost or garbled in the digital-to-analog conversion
and following analog-to-digital conversion that can occur in current digital
display devices. DVI has three subsets: DVI-A, for analog signals, DVI-D,
for digital signals, and DVI-I (integrated), for both analog and digital signals.
In the future PCs and laptops are not only equipped with DVI, but also video
devices as DVD.
Interface
Designates the transition point between different hardware units and
software units or between hardware and software units of computers or their
peripherals.
JEIDA
Abbreviation of Japan Electronic Industry Development Association.
Industry standard for memory cards.
Panel Link (PLINK)
Panel Link is a procedure for signal transmission based on the VESA
standard serving the connection of (LCD or Plasma) displays and monitors
to a PC or POS system e.g. BEETLE. PLINK is an interface for many
graphics and display standards such as VGA, SVGA, XGA or SXGA.

BEETLE /i8A-3
PCIe
Abbreviation of Peripheral Component Interconnect Express. The basis for
the „classical“ bus structure is a parallel architecture, i.e. all connected
terminals share an available bandwidth. With the new technology - PCI
Express - the transfer rates are increased by switched point-to-point
connections. A switch connects two PCIe components at a time with full
bandwidth and speed.
PCMCIA
Abbreviation for Personal Computer Memory Card International Association.
Industry standard for memory cards.
Plug and PLay (PnP)
PnP means the automatic recognition of hardware components by the
system. Thus the installation, integration and configuration of new
components is made substantially easier.
Peripherals
Devices serving as an input/output device or storage for a computer. This
includes, for example, document readers, keyboards, printers and disk
storage.
SATA
Abbreviation for “Serial Advanced Technology Attachments”, a serial
interface. By using the serial transmission SATA will do with a thin
four-wired conductor and a small plug. ATA so far was known for the broad
ribbon cable.
Server
This is a computer connected to a local network and whose services are
available to all of the network subscribers, e.g. a print server for printing the
data from all of the network subscribers on the printer connected to the
server.
VGA
Stands for Video Graphics Array and is the interface for connecting colour
monitors.
