ER-A Model Mode Switch, Keys and Job Codes Overview
Mode Switch, Keys and Job Codes Overview
The Sharp ER-A model programming consists of SRV (Service Mode) and/or PGM / PGM2 (Program Mode)
job codes.
Access to the modes is controlled by the mode switch and mode keys.
Job codes tell the ECR (Electronic Cash Register) what programming function to perform. Each job code
has bits that enable, disable, or define the settings for the respective job code.
The available Mode Switch, supplied Mode Keys and Job Codes vary by model.
Mode Switch and Keys
The key can only be inserted or removed when the switch is in the “REG” or “OFF” position.
The following diagram illustrates the various modes and operative range of the keys supplied with the
ECR. SRV and SRV’ modes are reserved for Authorized Sharp Dealers and Servicers and is only accessible
using a key labeled SRV. This key is not supplied with the ECR and must be ordered via the National Parts
Center (NPC). See your Sharp POS Support Directory for contact information.
The Mode Switch and supplied Mode Keys vary by model.
•
REG MODE: This mode allows you to enter sales.
•
OPXZ MODE: This mode allows servers to take X or Z reports of their sales information and can also
be used for employee functions.
•
OFF MODE: This mode locks all operations of the POS terminal. When you select this mode, the

ER-A Model Mode Switch, Keys and Job Codes Overview
Important! As the above chart demonstrates although the availability of a programming option may vary
between the ER-A models, with the exception of the ER-A242, the SRV and PGM2 Jobs codes are
consistent throughout the ER-A product line.
Example:
1. SRV Mode job code 950 is used for free key programming on all ER-A models where free key
assignment is available.
2. With the exception of the ER-A242, PGM2 Mode job code 1200 is used to associate a PLU to a
department on all ER-A models.
NOTE:
1. SRV Mode programming is not available on the ER-A242.
2. The ER-A242 uses a single digit job code or keystroke sequence/procedure for PGM Mode.

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode Programming Overview
SRV (Service) Mode - varies by model.
SRV-mode programming consists of service programming job codes, which define the system capabilities.
The program settings may be printed on the Receipt / Journal printer.
ER-A Model SRV Mode Job Codes
Job Codes
1. READING
- 900, 950, 951 971, 990 Job Codes
Description
Print System Preset, Free Key Layout, File Allocation,
and SSP settings on the Receipt / Journal printer.
Program System Presets, Z Report Counters, GTs,
Secret Codes, Training Cashier Title and Code,
Language, and Currency Symbol.
2. SYSTEM PRESETS
– 900 Job Codes
System Presets are used to define basic system
settings and controls such as the cashier number entry
system, compulsory closing of the cash drawer prior to
operation, date format, tax and grand total printing on
reports and many others.
3. FILE ALLOCATION
– 975 or 970 Job Codes
File Allocation is used to distribute the memory in a
Sharp ECR where the memory is allocable. This allows
‘Files’ to be different sizes depending on need and for
better use of the available memory.
4. FREE KEY ASSIGNMENT
– 950 & 951 Job Codes
Free Key programming allows you to easily place
function keys other than departments and PLUs onto a
keyboard position based on your customer’s
requirements
5. SSP – 990 Job Codes
A “Patch” is a service function that allows the program
in a ROM to be modified without replacing the chip. It
is properly called a SSP. The first step in a patch is the
number of the patch. Leading zeros are input as part of
the patch step. Usually, when several patches are out
for a unit, then a new version ROM will be made
available. This new ROM will incorporate the previous
patches issued.
6. TRAINING
When training a new employee, sales may be rung up
without affecting sales totals when you place the
ECR into Training mode via signing on with the training
cashier. Training operations are valid only in REG,
MGR, and VOID mode. The training cashier memory is
updated in the training mode. Other memories are not
updated.

ER-A Models SRV (Service) Mode - System Presets Overview
SYSTEM PRESETS
SRV Mode System Presets also known as 900 job codes are used to define system settings and controls
such as the cashier number entry system, compulsory closing of the cash drawer prior to operation, date
format, tax and grand total printing on reports and many others.
Each System Presets controls a specific group of settings, programmed as a set of 4 bits (A B C D).
Various setting may be enabled, disabled or defined by entering a predetermined value or the sum of the
predetermined value for the respective bit.
The program settings may be printed on the Receipt / Journal printer.

Important! As previously mentioned, although the availability of a programming option may vary
between the ER-A models, with the exception of the ER-A242 the SRV and PGM2 Jobs codes are
consistent throughout the ER-A product line. This especially holds true for System Presets.
EXAMPLE: While the settings for a specific System Preset will vary by ER-A model, generally the System
Preset will control the same settings throughout the ER-A product line.
Please note the actual bit (ABCD) values to enable, disable or define the settings will vary
greatly by ER-A Model.

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – Free Key Overview
FREE KEY Overview
SRV Mode Free Key programming, also known as 950 programming, allows you to easily place function
keys other than departments and PLUs onto a keyboard position based on your customer’s requirements.
Function Keys are keys that perform actions, such as cash, check, charge, void, RA/PO, and auto keys.
NOTE: For the ER-A320 and ER-A330, 950 programming is used to assign departments to the physical
keyboard. Optional key top kits may be purchase to access the newly assigned departments. PLUs can
not be placed directly on the keyboard. The PLU/SUB function key is used to register PLUs.
SRV Mode Key Number Assignment programming, also known as 951 programming allows you to assign a
key number to a fixed key position for departments, and direct PLU keys. Please see the chart below for
availability.
NOTE: Normally, there is no need to change the 951 programming from the MRS default settings which
are shown in the respective Sharp ER-A model Instruction Manual/Book.
Please see the respective Sharp ER-A model Programming Manuals and Dealer Knowledge Books for the
Function Key List and Key Position charts.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROGRAMMING FREE KEY
Typically, a function key must physically exist on the keyboard in order to update and report the
1 associated sales total(s).
2
A function key must physically exist on the keyboard before any associated PGM/PGM1/PGM2 mode
programming can be performed.
3 You may place any function key in multiple locations on the keyboard.
4
If you wish to assign a PLU/Dept. to a key location that is currently assigned a function key, you must
inhibit the key first to make it available for reassignment.
5
PGM2 Mode Direct Key (2119 / 2219) programming allows you to link a PLU or DEPT to a key position
on the keyboard only for direct registration based on the end user’s requirements.

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – File Allocation Overview
FILE ALLOCATION Overview
SRV Mode File Allocation, also known as memory file allocation and 970 programming, is used to
distribute the memory in a Sharp ECR where the memory is allocable. This allows ‘Files’ to be different
sizes depending on need and for better use of the available memory.
The concept of file allocation is similar to partitioning a hard disk drive. Instead of disk space, you are
working with areas of memory. File allocation allows for dividing and dedicating memory space for the
files to store its data.
Available memory maybe expanded with the addition of an optional memory expansion chip or board.

ER-A440, 450T, 520 & 530 File Allocation Overview
File allocation programming for the ER-A440, 450T, 520 and 530 uses File Groups to reserve areas of
memory for data storage.
During file allocation, file groups work much like a batch file or command file does in an operating system
or software program. A single File Group may reserve areas of memory for a single file table or
multiple dependent or related file tables.
Programming by “Group” allows certain portions of some files (such as text length for Departments and
PLUs) to be changed without affecting other programmed areas of the function.
Depending on the File Group Type, the file allocation requirements will vary.

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – File Allocation Overview
Please see the respective Sharp ER-A model Programming Manuals and Dealer Knowledge
Books for the File Group No, name, type, and table numbers.
File Allocation Terminology
The following terminology is used in File Allocation.
•
Group No.: (Also known as File Group No.) (See above -File Allocation Overview) This is a
reference number for the file group and is used in the actual File Allocation Programming.
Depending on the model, the Group No. is used and printed on the actual File Allocation Reading.
•
File No. / Table No.: (Also known as File Table No.) This is a reference number for the
individual files within a File Group. Depending on the model, the File Table No. is used and printed
on the actual File Allocation Reading.
•
File Name: Indicates the purpose of the particular file.
•
# Records: This area refers to the amount, or number, of each function that memory can be
allocated for. The actual meaning of each record depends upon the file. ( e.g.: With PLU or
Department Files, each PLU, or Department requires one record; with table files such as PLU Link
or Condiment, each record equals one line of the table.)
“# Records” is usually divided into two columns on the table - DEFAULT (at MASTER RESET) and
MAXIMUM. If the Maximum number of records for the file is denoted by asterisks, it is limited
only by the available memory in the machine.
•
# Blocks: The “Blocks” referred to are individual memory areas set aside for transaction data for
each Cashier, Clerk, or Server. Each block of memory has a fixed number of records in it. Each
record corresponds to a particular piece of data that would be printed in a Cashier, Clerk, or
Server Report. Block counts other than “1” are used only for Cashier, Clerk, and Server Files.
•
Label Size: This denotes the number of bytes in the header of the data. In the “ER-A” Series, the
number of bytes in the label MUST be added to the number of bytes in the record length to get an
accurate number of bytes each record requires.
•
Record Length (Data Size): Shows the number of bytes required for the data in each record.
•
Memory Size: Shows the total number of bytes required for the file at default. In some File
Allocation Tables, the total number of bytes is also shown for the file if it is opened to the
maximum number of records.
3 OF 14
Page 54 of 108
ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – File Allocation Overview
File Group Types:
•
Type 0: (Child) is modified automatically when the parent file group is changed. Create/Erase
only. (e.g.: Department Text, PLU Price, or PLU Stock)
•
Type 1: (Parent or Primary) requires a Number of Records Entry. Create/Erase and
Increase/Decrease the number of records. (e.g.: Dept., PLU, or Server/Cashier)
Operational buffers, such as the “Register Buffer”, are also considered to be Primary Files.
Primary Files also include those files opened for report data storage such as Term, Gross Margin,
Daily Net, Hourly, and Transaction. These reports can not be run if the corresponding files are not
allocated.
•
Type 2: Requires an Entry of Indexes and Records. Create/Erase and Increase/Decrease the
number of records for label and data individually. (e.g.: GLU/PBLU)
Calculating Memory Usage
Calculating the memory needed for specific applications is very important. This information is needed to
know what RAM options are required. If given a set amount of RAM, it enables you to determine the
maximum number of functions (such as PLUs, and UPCs) that can be installed.
The general formula for calculating the memory required for any particular file is (See Example ERA520/530 File Table No. Listing):
TN = (NR x NB) x (RL + LS)
Where:
TN = Total Number of bytes.
NR = Number of Records
NB = Number of Blocks
RL = Record Length (Data Size)
LS = Label Size
If the file that is being calculated is allocated is MRS, you should subtract the number of bytes the file
uses at MRS from the value derived by the formula shown above. The result will be the amount of
ADDITIONAL RAM required, or if the file size is being decreased, the amount of RAM freed.
Reminders:
1. The number of bytes in the Label Size must be added to the Record Length in order to get the
actual number of bytes required for each record.
2. If the number of records (or blocks) of a Type 1 (Parent or Primary) file group is changed, the
files that follow the Type 1 (Parent or Primary) file group size will also be changed.

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – File Allocation Overview
ER-A440, 450T, 520 & 530 File Allocation Programming
For the ER-A440, 450T, 520, and 530 models, the following key operation is used to program file
allocation:
From SRV Mode:
.
971
@/FOR
XX
@/FOR
YYYYY
(Type 0,1)
@/FOR
CA/AT
ZZZZZ
(Type 2)
XX = File Group No.
YYYYY = Desired number of Records/Blocks (items)
ZZZZZZ =Total Lines of stored data
MRS = See the Example ER-A520/530 File Table No. Listing below:
NOTES:
(1) The maximum number for “YYYYY” cannot be exceeded.
(2) ***** The maximum number is based on the total amount of available memory.
“Sister” File Groups
*Important: You must delete the “sister” file group in order to allocate file groups that are flagged with
an asterisk (See Example ER-A520/530 File Group Listing). (e.g.: PLU/UPC Price 1 and PLU/UPC
Price 1-6 or PLU/UPC Text 1 (8 Char) and PLU/UPC Text 1 (16 Char) are considered “sister” file groups.
You can only allocate one or the other not both.)
E.g.: The ER-A520/ER-A530 at MRS is allocated for PLU/UPC Price 1. In order to change the memory
allocation to allow for PLU/UPC Price 1-6, two things need to be considered:
1. The File Group #5 (PLU/UPC Price 1) must be deleted prior to allocating the File Group #6
(PLU/UPC Price 1-6).
2. The PLU/UPC Price 1-6 will require more memory than PLU/UPC Price 1. Optional memory may be
required.
To Delete a File Group
If you wish to free up available memory space by deleting a file group that is not required (e.g. Link
PLU, Set PLU, Dynamic UPC etc.), perform the following procedure:
From SRV Mode:

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – File Allocation Overview
Increasing and Reducing the No. of Records
It is always safe to increase the size of a particular File Group if memory is available to accommodate the
increase.
When reducing the size of a particular File Group, do not reduce the No. of Records below the
No. of Used Records to prevent data loss.
E.g. Using the Example ER-A520/530 970 File Reading below:
In this example using the MRS defaults, PLU/UPC Group No. 4 must not be reduced below 20. If reduced
below 20, any data associated with those records is lost.

* ER-A520/520 970 Reading Prints according to Group No.
NOTE: Reducing the number of Records can free up available memory space.
EXAMPLE:
At MRS, the ECR has 2000 records reserved for PLU/UPC (sales items). You determine that they will not
require or use more than 500 records. You can safely reduce the No. of Records for the PLU/UPC File
Group to 500 to free up available memory for use by other File Groups without losing data in records 1500.

Comments
Summary:
The amount of memory available for allocation is the difference between the End Address and the Used
Address. By familiarizing yourself with the default End Address, you will be able to easily identify if any
optional memory has or has not been installed.
Without prior knowledge of optional expansion memory chip or board installation, the only way to
determine if optional memory has been added is to perform the optional memory diagnostic or to view
the physical chip or board. For some models, viewing the physical chip or board may require disassembly
of the ECR.

ER-A Model SRV (Service) Mode – File Allocation Overview
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROGRAMMING FILE ALLOCATION
1
Before you start any programming, it is recommended that you check the available memory.
2
Before you start programming memory allocation, you should consult with your customer to
determine how much and what size file memory is necessary.
3
When allocating File Groups, it is important to note which individual file tables are affected.
4
When allocating File Groups, observe the contents printed on the Journal Printer. If there is a
problem with the allocation such as no available memory, it will be indicated on the Journal Printer.
5
Upon completion of File programming and prior to returning to REG Mode or any other MODE, a
Program Reset is required/mandatory.
6
When making changes to multiple Files, complete all File programming and then perform a
Program Reset.

ER-A Models PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Overview
PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Overview - varies by model
The Sharp ER-A model programming consists of SRV (Service Mode) and/or PGM/PGM1/PGM2 (Program)
Mode job codes.
Job codes tell the ECR (Electronic Cash Register) which programming function to perform. Each job code
has bits that enable, disable, or define the settings for the respective job code. The program settings may
be printed on the Receipt / Journal printer.
PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode job codes allow the user to program settings such as the date, time, departments,
items, tax, servers/cashiers, terminal functions, preset prices, etc.
It’s important to know how the ECR was Service Mode programmed before attempting PGM Mode
Programming, as many of the PGM job codes are affected (allowed or disallowed) by Service Mode
programming entries.
PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Availability by Model
Access to PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode is controlled by the mode switch and mode key.

ER-A Models PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Overview
ER-A242 PGM Mode Programming
The ER-A242 uses a single digit job code or keystroke sequence for PGM Mode programming. Please refer
to the ER-A242 Instruction Manual for programming procedures.
Example 1 - Date:
From PGM Mode:
Example 2 – Tax:
From PGM Mode:
NOTES:
1. The ER-A242 comes with PC friendly software for item upload, graphic logo design
and periodic sales reports. PC connectivity and programming with the PC software
enables fast and easy programming.
2. SRV Mode programming is not available on the ER-A242.

ER-A Models PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Overview
ER-A320, 330, 410/420, 440, 450T & 520/530 PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Programming
PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode programming for the ER-A320, 330, 410/420, 440, 450T & 520/530 use 4 digit
job codes and/or “direct key entry”. Access to PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode is controlled by the mode switch
and mode key.
REMINDER:
The ER-A320 and ER-A330 uses PGM Mode only. Therefore all PGM Programming regardless
of the job code is done in PGM Mode.
The ER-A410/420, 440, 450T & 520/530 uses PGM1 Mode and PGM2 Mode.
With the exception of the ER-A320 and ER-A330, the first number of the job code designates the PGM
mode to use (PGM1 or PGM2). The second number of the job code designates the general function being
programmed.
EXAMPLE: Job code 2610 is used to program the Date.
2 = PGM2 Mode
6 = Miscellaneous Function
Other common designations for the second number of the PGM/PGM1/PGM2 job code:
0 - Dynamic UPC
1 - Departments
2 - PLU/UPC
3 - Function Keys – i.e. media settings, media descriptions, HALO, etc.
4 or 5 – Server/Cashier
6 - Miscellaneous Functions – i.e. date, time, register #, optional settings, stack report, devices
etc.
7 - Tax
9 - Training Mode and Auto Keys (NOTE: Auto keys are programmed in X2 / Z2 Mode)
Important! As previously mentioned, although the availability of a programming option may vary
between the ER-A models, with the exception of the ER-A242 the SRV and PGM2, Jobs codes are
consistent throughout the ER-A product line. This holds true for PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode programming.
EXAMPLE: With the exception of the ER-A242, PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode job code 2610 is used for
programming the date on all ER-A models.

ER-A Models PGM/PGM1/PGM2 Mode Overview
ER-A410/420, 440, 450T & 520/530 PGM1/PGM2 Mode Programming
The ER-A410/420, 440, 450T & 520/530 generally consists of two types of programming that are
managed by the mode key.
1. PGM2-Mode Programming: PGM Jobs that are 2xxx
2. PGM1-Mode Programming: PGM Jobs that are 1xxx
NOTE:
1. PGM1 Job Codes (1xxx) may be performed in PGM1 or PGM2 Mode.
2. PGM2 Jobs Codes (2xxx) may only be performed in PGM2 Mode.
PGM2-Mode programming is primarily used when installing the ECR, and for maintaining select presets
intended for Managers/ Owners only.
The PGM1-Mode Programming is intended for settings that change frequently.

Application Program
This is the program for a particular customer
Auto Key Function
Auto keys are used to automate or assign operations or functions to a
single key. Auto keys allow for programming of several keys to a
single key. For example, a $20.00 speed tender, a Z Report or Tax
Delete operation.
BOGO
Cash In Drawer (CID)
Buy One Get One promotion.
This amount is the “amount” of cash that should be in the drawer. It
reflects paid outs, refunds, etc.
Charge Posting/Customer
Management
This is an account record, such as a hotel / motel function or layaway
which shows the current balance of an account. It reflects the charges
and payments received to the account.
Compulsory
Condiment Tables
This refers to a “Mandatory” function or procedure. E.g. “Compulsory
drawer operation” means that the drawer has to be “Closed” for the
machine to operate.
The “condiment entry” is intended to guide the operator in making
menu entries that require special instructions. E.g. chicken nuggets
may be linked to a condiment table that will prompt for a choice of
toppings (ranch, bleu cheese, honey mustard, none).
Department
This is a section of memory where the sales of items are stored. This
total is updated on the fly. To see the amount of sales, an “X” (Read)
or a “Z” (Zero out) report has to be taken. This category is named by
the customer in PGM programming. E.g. “MEAT”, “PRODUCE”,
“BEER”, “CIGARETTES”.
Department Group
This is a section of memory where the departments are grouped and
stored for reporting purposes. This total is updated on the fly. To see
the amount of sales, an “X” (Read) or a “Z” (Zero out) report has to be
taken.
FAT
File Allocation Table: This is how we distribute the memory in a Sharp
register where the memory is allocable. This allows “Files” to be
different sizes depending on need. This allows better use of the
memory available.
GLU
Guest Look Up: This differs from a previous balance look up in that the
GLU file holds an itemization of all registrations on the balance, while
PBLU retains only the amount owed at the time of service.
IRC
Inline or Inter-Register Communication: IRC is essentially a Local Area
Network (LAN) consisting of Point Of Sale terminals, remote printers, a
hub or switch, and possibly a personal computer. An IRC system
allows the manager to exercise centralized control over the satellite
terminals through the master terminal. It is used to consolidate totals
from one or more registers, to download programming, and sending
information to a remote printer.
Loop Reset
This is a service reset.

POS/Glossary
Master
This is the controlling unit in an IRC system. The master will have
generally the most memory of the units in the system. It is used for
real-time transmission, to consolidate totals from one or more
registers, to download programming, sending information to a remote
printer, and consolidation of sales data for further processing. For
example, a back office application.
Master Reset
This operation will reset all the totals in the machine. There are three
(3) types of master resets.
MRS-1 (Master Reset-1): Clears the entire available memory
and restores the initial factory default values for the keyboard
and PGM-mode programming.
MRS-2 (Master Reset-2): Clears the entire available memory,
allows free assignment of the ten-key pad, eliminates the
Direct Department and PLU assignments, and restores the
initial factory default values for all other PGM-Mode
programming.
MRS-3 (Master Reset-3): Clears the entire available memory,
allows the input of the product serial number and the
assignment of the ten-keypad, eliminates the Direct
Department and PLU assignments, and restores the initial
factory default values for all other PGM-Mode programming.
Mode Switch (Mode Lock)
Option
This is the control lock of the register. Determines the “Mode” of
operation of the register.
A device or function that can be added to a register. It is usually not
found on the unit out of the box.
Patch
A “Patch” is a service function that allows the program in a ROM to be
modified without replacing the chip. It is properly called a SSP. The
first step in a patch is the number of the patch. Leading zeros are
input as part of the patch step. Usually, when several patches are out
for a unit, then a new version ROM will be made available. This new
ROM will incorporate the previous patches issued.
PBLU
Previous Balance Look Up: This is a guest check system. The guest
check will show the current balance of items ordered, until the check is
“serviced”. It may or may not include tax and a gratuity.
PLU
PLU Groups
PLU (Linked)
Sharp Electronics Corporation
Price Look Up: a PLU is a section of memory where an item is
assigned a number, a name, and a preset price. The machine will
locate this item by number and add the amount to the sale. The price
does not have to be input through the keyboard during a sale.
This is a section of memory where the PLUs are grouped and stored
for reporting purposed. This total is updated on the fly. To see the
amount of sales, an “X” (Read) or a “Z” (Zero out) report has to be
taken.
A Link PLU is used when more than one and up to five items is
registered with one key depression. Each unit price is accumulative
for those PLU items associated to the link type operation and are
printed with the individual unit prices. For example, Bottle Deposits,
specials or messages.

PLU Menu Key
Program Reading
Program Reset
A PLU Menu key is used to group similar items together under one key
for sales registration.
A printout on the receipt printer of various PGM1, PGM2 or SRV
program reading. For example, a department program reading.
This is a procedure used to re-initialize the program with out
destroying any of the programming.
• A program reset unlocks the POS terminal when an operation
lock up occurred.
• A program reset DOES NOT clear the program, sales totals or
GTs.
• A program reset is mandatory after installing an RS232 peripheral
device, an SSP, changing a System Preset Job Code or Memory
Allocation File Group.
• A program reset must NOT be performed in an IRC configuration,
unless a CLOSE STORE in PGM2 Mode is executed.
UPC
Universal Product Code: This is the bar code you see on packages
used to identify the product. This code can be programmed into the
registers memory with a name and price. When this code is entered
into the machine through the keyboard, or by a scanner, the price will
be added to the sale.
RAM
Random Access Memory: This is the memory where the general
programming is stored. This information changes frequently.
Ram Clear
This refers to a “Master reset” operation.
Range
This refers to a starting and ending point for a report. This is used in
Department, PLU, and UPC reports to read a section of the
information without taking a full report.
Remote Drawer
Refers to a drawer not mounted to the register itself.
Read Only Memory (ROM)
This is the chip where the basic machine structure is stored. This is
not changeable.
RP
Refers to a “Remote Printer”. Can be used on an IRC system or can
refer to a RS-232C printer
RS-232C
This is an industry standard for serial communication between a host
and a peripheral unit. It usually utilizes a D-Sub 9-pin connector,
Modular Jack RJ45 8-pin connector or USB connector and in Sharp
systems depending on the number of RS-232 peripherals an optional
RS-232 board may be required.
Satellite
This is a POS that has no control over IRC functionality. It only
participates in an IRC system. It usually has the minimum memory to
function as needed. The reporting, consolidation and preset data
downloading will be done at the master.

Sentinel
Service Reset
SICS
This is a function that has a programmable limit as to the maximum
amount of money to be kept in the drawer. When this amount is
reached, an indicator will light in the display. This signals the operator
or manager to make a “Paid Out” or “Drop” to decrease the amount of
“CASH” in the drawer.
This is a program reset.
Single Item Cash Sale: This is a function that allows a single key
operation to ring in an amount to a department, add the tax if
applicable, and open the drawer.
SIF
Single Item finalize: This is a function that allows one key, no matter
when it is depressed in a transaction, to total out (FINALIZE) the sale.
Slip
This refers to a “Slip printer”. This is the printer used to print the
information on the guest check, or “Slip.”
SRN
Sharp Retail Network: Basically the same as IRC. The two terms are
interchangeable.
Standalone
This unit will have the files needed to function independently. There is
no IRC functionality.
Stacked Report
The Stack Report printing function allows for multiple X/Z reports to be
printed in sequence by a single request.
Sub-department
A sub-department is a PLU, without a preset price. If you enter a
price, that price becomes the highest amount that can be entered,
(HALO). The sub- department price will be entered through the
keyboard during the sale.
Tare Weight
This is the weight of an empty container or item that will be used to
hold goods that are being weighed to determine cost.
Tax Percentage Rate
This rate is applied to whole dollar amounts.
Tax Table
This is a part of the memory programming used to calculate state and
local taxes that apply to the sale of items. This is done by entering in
the “Breakpoints” of the table established by the state, county, and / or
city.
Term Totals (Periodic)
Some of the registers made by Sharp have the option in programming
to have “Term” totals. This is a summary of the daily “Z” reports. They
can be cleared at the end of the week (WEEKLY) or at the end of the
month (MONTHLY).

Credit Card
Term
Definition
Credit Card Authorization (CAT)
Also known as EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) and EPAY (Electronic
Payment), Credit Card Authorization (CAT) involves processing and
authorization of Credit Card, Debit Card, Check (w/o MICR), Gift Card
and EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) transactions. Available
processing and authorizations vary by ECR/POS model and Merchant
Service Provider.
Network Programming
Involves the Merchant Service Provider/Payment Processor set up
information stored within the CAT, EFT or EPAY device.
Initialization
Used to synchronize/initialize the CAT, EFT or EPAY device upon
installation, after setting changes at the ECR/POS system and for
unexplained occurrences when the CAT, EFT, or EPAY device ceases
to function normally.
Batch Execution
Depending on the type of network used for CAT, EFT or EPAY
authorization (Host or Terminal Based), there are four (4) batch
commands supported:
(1) Open Batch is required to process CAT, EFT or EPAY
transactions and should be a part of open store procedures.
(2) Close Batch is used to settle the credit card transactions at the
end of day.
(3) Clear Batch is used to erase all current batch transactions
when batch settlement can not be achieved.
(4) Change Batch No. is used to change the existing batch
number when replacement (loaner) units are installed and/ or
when there is a conflict at the processor and network advises
you to change the batch number.
Reports
Depending on the type of network used for CAT, EFT or EPAY
authorization (Host or Terminal Based), there are four (4) different
reports supported:
(1) Local Summary report is used to indicate the summary
information pertaining to each applicable transaction
processed.
(2) Local Inquiry report retrieves each record from CAT, EFT or
EPAY device in detail (ex: Date, time, etc.).
(3) Local Total report summarizes the CAT, EFT or EPAY
device’s totalizers by the type of credit card.
(4) Batch Status report is used to determine the batch (Open or
Close) status at that specific time the report is initiated.
