Introduction
The UP-600/UP-700 inter-register communication (IRC) system consists of one master machine
and up to 63 satellite machines which are all interconnected by the local area network (LAN) 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 machine whose terminal number has
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 of the satellites.
In the close store state, key operations 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 number 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. Enter your server code and press the [SERV#] (or
[CASH#]) 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 which
terminal each server has signed on.
Report generation procedure
1. Turn the mode switch to the PGM2 position.
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.
In the case of the UP-700:
Server name, server code, machine no. of
the terminal 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.

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). During the GLU/PBLU registration at a satellite, 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 upon finalization of a
transaction (in case of payment entry or temporary finalization).
The data transmitted from the satellite is received in the temporary GLU/PBLU data
receiving file of the master and then updated in the master GLU/PBLU file. In this case, the
GLU/PBLU reserve counter is cleared at the master.
(2) Individual GLU/PBLU file system
In this system, the master and satellites have their own GLU/PBLU files for look up and
registration. Therefore, no inline communications are initiated regarding GLU/PBLU data.
8. PLU/UPC stock control
In the IRC system, a centralized system is implemented for PLU/UPC stock control. Preset stock
data is stored only in the master. When a consolidated report is generated, stock data in the
satellites are consolidate into the stock file of the master and calculated there. The stock data
calculated at the master is printed out and the stock data in each satellite is reset to zero.
11
9. PLU/UPC data control
In the IRC system, PLU/UPC sales data is centrally controlled by the master. PLU/UPC data
which is temporarily stored in the T-LOG buffer of a satellite is sent to the master by T-LOG
polling. (For further information on T-LOG polling, see page 14.)
NOTE
The learning function enables the operator at a satellite to set the unit price, associated department
and deletion/non-deletion attributes for an item whose code is undefined in the PLU/UPC file. (For
further information on the learning function, see the UP-600 or UP-700 Instruction Manual.)
If the satellite does not have a dynamic UPC file, the data on the UPC item which has been set using
the learning function is stored in the PLU/UPC main file to update the master’s file.
If the satellite has a dynamic UPC file, the data is stored in the dynamic UPC file to update the
master’s file.
The data which has been set using the learning function in the training mode at a satellite is stored in
its T-LOG buffer.
For the PLU/UPC data flow, see the following scenarios.

10. Price change function
When a price for the UPC item is changed at a machine (master or satellite), its PLU/UPC main
file or dynamic PLU/UPC file is updated by the new price data (unit price and associated
department).
The new data is then automatically distributed to all other machines to update the PLU/UPC
main files or dynamic PLU/UPC files which contain the code of the item.
The data on an UPC item whose price has been changed at a satellite is also stored in the TLOG buffer of the satellite. The data stored in the T-LOG buffer is collected by the T-LOG polling
after the open-store operation at the master to update its PLU/UPC main file or dynamic UPC
file.
For further information on the price change function, see the UP-600 or UP-700 instruction
manual.
For the PLU/UPC price change data flow, see the following scenarios.

NOTE
If a transmission error occurs during the automatic distribution of the updated data to other machines
after a price is changed, the machine number of the terminal which caused the error and the type of
error are printed out at the sending machine. In this case, the system retry function can be used if it
is enabled. (For the system retry function, see page 57.)
11. Customer data control
In the IRC system, customer data is centrally controlled by the master. Customer data which is
temporarily stored in the T-LOG buffer of a satellite is sent to the master by T-LOG polling after
the open-store operation and is controlled by the master. (For further information on T-LOG
polling, see page 14.)
13
12. T-LOG polling
All REG-mode transaction data in each satellite is saved in its T-LOG buffer. T-LOG polling is a
data collection system in which the master collects data from the T-LOG buffers of the satellites.
T-LOG polling becomes available upon the 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 while in the open store state.
After the master detects such a request, it starts collecting the T-LOG buffer data. When
multiple requests are made at the same time, upon completion of data collection from one
satellite, the master waits for a preset time and then starts collecting data from another satellite.
In T-LOG polling, the data transmitted to the master is stored in the corresponding file.
The T-LOG polling data flow is shown below.

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
specifying whether the registration is disabled or enabled when the T-LOG buffer becomes full,
please refer to the UP-600 or UP-700 instruction manual.
14
13. Communication with a remote printer (optional)
When a remote printer is included in the inline system, order data is output to the remote printer
according to its preset data regarding the remote printer assignment.
The remote printer is used to print all or part of the data entered at a machine. It is also called a
kitchen printer. The remote printer can also be operated at a location other than the kitchen.
If a remote printer number is assigned to a department/PLU/UPC, the information on the
department/PLU/UPC is output to the remote printer when an entry 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/UPC/department code*
* Whether to print or not is selectable
Up to three remote printers can be preset to print data on each item (PLU/UPC/department).
If three printers are preset to print data on each item, the data is simultaneously output to preset
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.
(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 an assigned remote printer, the data is output to the
second remote printer.
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.
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). Group-1 is the highest priority
and Group-9 is the lowest.
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.
16
14. Rerouting print data
The UP-600 and UP-700 terminals may reroute specific print data to an external printer
connected to any terminal on the LAN by an RS-232 cable and can be shared by multiple UP600/UP-700 terminals.

5. Server report
At the master, you can generate consolidated transaction reports on all servers or individual
servers by performing the reading or resetting operation.
At each satellite, you can generate consolidated transaction reports on individual servers by
performing the reading or resetting operation.
If a specific server is signed on at a machine when resetting operation for a consolidated
individual server report is executed 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.

4 System Back-Up
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.
Master
Back-up master
(Processing)
(Processing)
(1) Updated data
(3) Updated data
(2) Processed data
(4) Processed data
Satellite
If the master breaks down, the back-up master serves as the master after a master declaration
procedure is made at the back-up master. If the back-up master breaks down, the 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.
47
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
performed 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, operations cannot be performed at
satellites.)
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.

3. Select “MASTER DECLARE” and press the [ENTER]
key.
49
(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 performed at the master. This operation
causes the master to inform all satellites that the back-up master is not available.
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.

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 30.)
(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 is 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.
