Precaution Statements
Follow these safety, servicing and ESD precautions to prevent damage and to protect against potential hazards such as
electrical shock.
1-1
Safety Precautions
1. Be sure that all built-in protective devices are
replaced. Restore any missing protective shields.
2. When reinstalling the chassis and its assemblies,
be sure to restore all protective devices, including
nonmetallic control knobs and compartment
covers.
3. Make sure there are no cabinet openings through
which people - particularly children - might insert
fingers and contact dangerous voltages. Such
openings include excessively wide cabinet
ventilation slots and improperly fitted covers and
drawers.
4. Design Alteration Warning:
Never alter or add to the mechanical or electrical
design of the SECR. Unauthorized alterations
might create a safety hazard. Also, any design
changes or additions will void the manufacturer’s
warranty.
5. Components, parts and wiring that appear to have
overheated or that are otherwise damaged should
be replaced with parts that meet the original
specifications. Always determine the cause of
damage or over- heating, and correct any potential
hazards.
6. Do not remove original insulation, especially near
the following areas: sharp edges, and especially
the AC and high voltage supplies. Always inspect
for pinched, out-of-place, or frayed wiring. Do not
change the spacing between components and the
printed circuit board. Check the AC power cord
for damage. Make sure that leads and components
do not touch thermally hot parts.
7. Product Safety Notice:
Some electrical and mechanical parts have special
safety-related characteristics that might not be
obvious from visual inspection. These safety
features and the protection they give might be lost
if the replacement component differs from the
original - even if the replacement is rated for
higher voltage, wattage, etc.
Components that are critical for safety are
indicated in the circuit diagram by shading, ( )
or ( ). Use replacement components that have
the same ratings, especially for flame resistance
and dielectric strength specifications. A
replacement part that does not have the same
safety characteristics as the original might create
shock, fire or other hazards.
CAUTION
There is the danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly
replaced.
ATTENTION
ll y a danger d’explosion s’il y a remplacement incorrect
de la batterie.
Remplacer uniquement avec une batterie du même type
ou d’un type équivalent recommandé par le constructeur.
Mettre au rebut les batteries usagées conformément aux
instructions du fabricant.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer.
Dispose used batteries according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.
SAFETY NOTICE: "Electrical equipment should be installed near an easily accessible socket/outlet."
1-2
Servicing Precautions
WARNING: First read the-Safety Precautions-section of this manual. If some unforeseen circumstance creates a
conflict between the servicing and safety precautions, always follow the safety precautions.
WARNING: An electrolytic capacitor installed with the wrong polarity might explode.
1. Servicing precautions are printed on the cabinet.
Follow them.
2. Always unplug the units AC power cord from the
AC power source before attempting to:
(a) Remove or reinstall any component or assembly
(b) Disconnect an electrical plug or connector
(c) Connect a test component in parallel with an
electrolytic capacitor
3. Some components are raised above the printed
circuit board for safety. An insulation tube or tape
is sometimes used. The internal wiring is
sometimes clamped to prevent contact with
thermally hot components. Reinstall all such
elements to their original position.
4. After servicing, always check that the screws,
components and wiring have been correctly
reinstalled. Make sure that the portion around the
serviced part has not been damaged.
1-3
5. Check the insulation between the blades of the AC
plug and accessible conductive parts (examples:
metal panels and input terminals).
6. Insulation Checking Procedure: Disconnect the
power cord from the AC source and turn the power
switch ON. Connect an insulation resistance meter
(500V) to the blades of AC plug.
The insulation resistance between each blade of the
AC plug and accessible conductive parts (see
above) should be greater than 1 megohm.
7. Never defeat any of the B+ voltage interlocks.
Do not apply AC power to the unit (or any of its
assemblies) unless all solid-state heat sinks are
correctly installed.
8. Always connect an instrument’s ground lead to the
instrument chassis ground before connecting the
positive lead; always remove the instrument’s
ground lead last.
Precautions for Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDs)
1. Some semiconductor (solid state) devices are easily
damaged by static electricity. Such components are
called Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDs);
examples include integrated circuits and some fieldeffect transistors. The following techniques will
reduce the occurrence of component damage caused
by static electricity.
2. Immediately before handling any semiconductor
components or assemblies, drain the electrostatic
charge from your body by touching a known earth
ground. Alternatively, wear a discharging wriststrap device. (Be sure to remove it prior to applying
power - this is an electric shock precaution.)
3. After removing an ESD-equipped assembly, place
it on a conductive surface such as aluminum foil to
prevent accumulation of electrostatic charge.
4. Do not use Freon-propelled chemicals. These can
generate electrical charges that damage ESDs.
5. Use only a grounded-tip soldering iron when
soldering or unsoldering ESDs.
6. Use only an anti-static solder removal device.
Many solder removal devices are not rated as antistatic; these can accumulate sufficient electrical
charge to damage ESDs.
7. Do not remove a replacement ESD from its
protective package until you are ready to install it.
Most replacement ESDs are packaged with leads
that are electrically shorted together by conductive
foam, aluminum foil or other conductive materials.
8. Immediately before removing the protective
material from the leads of a replacement ESD,
touch the protective material to the chassis or
circuit assembly into which the device will be
installed.
9. Minimize body motions when handling unpackaged
replacement ESDs. Motions such as brushing
clothes together, or lifting a foot from a carpeted
floor can generate enough static electricity to
damage an ESD.

Safe Operation
•
Do not locate your SAM4s ECR in a damp or wet environment. Avoid high humidity, direct
sunlight and temperature extremes.
•
Always plug your ECR into a grounded three-prong outlet. Never use two-prong adaptors or
ungrounded outlets.
•
Check to make sure the power outlet provides the correct voltage: (120V +/- 10%).
•
Immediately disconnect the ECR from the power source in case of spilled liquid in the ECR,
smoke, or strange smells. Call your authorized dealer for assistance.
•
Do not operate the ECR with wet hands.
•
Use a soft dry cloth to clean the ECR cabinet. Do not use wet clothes or solvents.
•
Do not open the ECR case to attempt repairs. Dangerous voltages can cause shock. Service
attempts by untrained personnel can cause unnecessary damage to your ECR.
Power Requirements
Be aware that other electrical devices on the same circuit can cause your ECR to malfunction. Avoid
plugging your ECR into outlets where other high-current devices are connected.
Be aware that power quality issues, including voltage fluctuations, electrical noise, spikes, outages,
interruptions, and other power viruses can disrupt or damage modern electronic equipment, including
ECRs and PCs.
1-6
Surge Protectors and Power Conditioners
Most people are familiar with surge protectors, which guard against damage due to sudden spikes in
the electrical current. A power conditioner provides protection against surges in power just as a surge
suppressor does, but a power conditioner also maintains a continuous voltage during temporary
voltage reductions, such as a brownout. This is referred to as conditioning. Power conditioners also
can filter EMI emanating from a power source and can smooth the rhythmic cycle of alternating
current. While surge protectors safeguard equipment, a power conditioner cleans the signal,
eliminating interference on the line.
CRS recommends the PowerVAR ABC065-11 (CRS P/N 701002), a 0.65 amp power
conditioner that is suitable for most ECR applications. POWERVAR standard power
conditioners are for use with any microprocessor based electronic equipment.

Quick Start Guide
About the SAM4s ER-285M
The SAM4s ER-285M electronic cash register features a flat spill-resistant 49-position
keyboard with 15 category keys. Because this model has a flat keyboard, you can quickly
and easily setup or change key labels by printing or typing on the key sheet that lays under
the protective overlay. This configuration is ideal for a wide range of food service
environments or retail environments where the possibility of spills may be an issue. With its
superb thermal printing system, the ER-285M provides extremely fast and quiet operation.
Ready to Use
Each SAM4s ECR is ready to use after un-boxing and loading the paper.
•
The standard keyboard contains all the functions you will need for basic cash register
operation.
•
A standard capacity of 15 category keys, 2000 PLUs and 20 Groups allows for easy
item management.
•
In areas where sales tax is charged, you will want to enter the tax rate and set the
taxable status for each category key.
•
You will also wish to set descriptors for categories; if you choose not to set
descriptors, the default descriptors “PLU1, PLU2,” etc. will be used.
Carefully read and follow the steps in this chapter to complete these basic programming steps
and put your SAM4s ER-285M into service.
Easy to Customize
This manual also contains instructions for higher-level options and features that are available
for the ER-285M. Among many options, you can add or relocate function keys on the
keyboard, or you can connect POS peripherals including a DataTran integrated payment
appliance. The programs required for these options are fully explained in the reference
sections of this manual. You may require the assistance of your professional cash register
dealer to design and implement your special requirements or options.

Programming the Sales Tax Rate
Most sales taxes can be programmed by entering a tax percentage rate. If you have tax that
can be computed through a straight percentage calculation, follow the simple steps in this
section to enter your sales tax rate.
About Tax Tables
In some cases you may find that tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly
the tax chart that applies in your area. If this is the case, you must enter your tax using tax
table programming. This method will match tax collection exactly to the break points of your
tax table. If you determine that you need to set a tax table, see “Tax Table Programming” on
page 125.
About Multiple Taxes
Some areas collect multiple taxes. For example, merchants may be required to collect one
rate for merchandise and a different rate for liquor. To accommodate multiple taxes, the ER285M can compute and report up to four different taxes. If you have a single tax rate, use tax
rate 1 when programming.
About Canadian GST
Merchants in Canada can use tax 4 to compute and report the national goods and services tax
(GST). See “Tax Table Programming” on page 125 for more information.
Verifying Accurate Tax Computation
Important Note: After you have entered your tax program, test for accuracy by
entering several transactions of different dollar amounts. Carefully check to make sure
the tax charged by the cash register matches the tax amounts on the printed tax chart
for your area. Merchants are responsible for accurate tax collection. If the cash register
is not calculating tax accurately, or if you cannot program your tax properly from the
information in this manual, contact your local SAM4s dealer for assistance.

Programming PLU Tax & Preset Status
The ER-285 uses keyboard PLUs that act like traditional cash register “department” keys. All
PLUs, whether registered directly through the keyboard, or indirectly by entering a PLU
code, are programmed in the same manner and their sales totals are reported in the PLU
report. Programming done here includes:
Tax Status
The PLU tax status determines whether tax is automatically calculated and added to the sale.
For example, if PLU1 is taxable by tax rate 1, and tax rate 1 is a 6% add on tax, then $.60 will
be added to the sale when a $10.00 item is registered.
Open and Preset PLUs
Preset PLUs automatically ring-up a preset amount. For example, you can use a preset PLU
key to register a pack of cigarettes. Just press the key and the price you have programmed is
recalled and added to the sale. If a PLU is not preset, it is “open”. In other words, you enter
the price for the PLU. All PLUs default to Preset status.
Preset Override
You can make a preset PLU and allow the operator to override the preprogrammed price. For
example name brand cigarettes may be preset at $3.25 per pack, but a generic brand may cost
only $2.75. If the preset has been set to allow override, touching the key will register the
preset price, and you can also enter a different price for the same PLU. The disadvange of
using override is that you lose price control. Any employee can sell an item at a reduced or
inflated price without manager intervention.
More PLU Program Options
PLUs have considerable additional programmability. See “PLU Programming” on page 127
of the “Program Mode Reference Guide” chapter of this manual if you need to set other PLU
options.

Setting a PLU Preset Price or an Open PLU Entry Limit
If a PLU is preset, you will need to set the price of the item. If a PLU is not preset, you can
set a maximum amount that can be registered. The maximum entry is often called a HALO
(High Amount Lock Out). If no HALO is set for an open department, the operator can
register amounts up to 7-digits ($99,999.99).
Merchants often set HALO limits to prevent errors and over-rings. For example, you can set
a HALO of $50.00 if the highest price item in sold in a category is $50.00. If the operator
inadvertently enters $500.00, the register will not accept the entry and display an error
message.

Register Reports
Introduction
All Management Functions take place with the control lock in the X or Z position. In this
way only those with the correct key will have access to these functions. Some register
operations may be programmed to require the control lock in the X position in order to
operate. All reports require a key that will access the X or Z position.
X & Z Reports
System reports are divided into two basic categories:
•
X reports, which read totals without resetting
•
Z reports, which read totals and reset them to zero
Most reports are available in both categories. Some reports, such as the Cash-in-Drawer
report and the From-To PLU report are available only as X reports.
A complete list of available reports is presented in a chart on the following page.
An example is given for each of these reports in the pages that follow. Those reports that
may be optionally abbreviated through register programming are represented twice. They are
first shown with the option off, giving all totals, and again with the option turned on, showing
the abbreviated version of the same report.
Registers programmed with pop-up clerks must be signed on in the REG control lock
position prior to taking reports.
SAM4s ER-285M Operator's and Program Manual v1.4
Register Reports • 35
X2/Z2 Reports: Period-to-Date Reports
Some reports also provide identical but separate period to date reports. These reports
maintain a separate set of totals which may be allowed to accumulate over a period of days,
weeks, months, or even years. X2 reports read period to date totals without resetting, and Z2

Cash Declaration
If compulsory cash declaration is required, you must declare the count of the cash drawer
prior to taking X or Z financial and clerk reports.
You can enter the cash drawer total in one step, or to facilitate the counting of the cash
drawer, you can enter each type of bill/coin and checks separately and let the register act as
an adding machine. You can also use the X/TIME key to multiply the denomination of
currency times your count.
Either way you choose to enter cash, the register will compare your declaration with the
expected cash and check in drawer totals and print the over or short amounts on the report.
For example:
1. Turn the control lock to the X or Z
position (depending upon the type
of report you are taking.)
DATE 01/10/2007 WED
2. Enter 9 0 and press the

Description
CLERK
The register will not operate in register mode unless a clerk has
been signed on. Clerk sign-on is accomplished by “direct” or
“secret code” sign-on.
All entries made on the register will report to one of the clerk
totals. When a clerk is signed on, all entries following will add
to that clerk’s total until another clerk is signed on. However, a
clerk cannot be changed in the middle of a transaction.
To sign a clerk off, thereby displaying the “CLOSED” message
on the display, enter 0, and then press the CLERK key. This
disables the register until another clerk is signed on. The current
clerk must first be signed off before another clerk may be signed
on.
CONV (1 - 4)
The currency conversion function, allowed after subtotal,
converts and displays the new subtotal at a preprogrammed
exchange rate. Tendering is allowed after using the currency
conversion function. Change is calculated and issued in home
currency. The amount of foreign currency tendered is stored in a
separate total on the Financial report, but not added to the drawer
total.
EAT-IN
TAKE OUT
DRIVE THRU
Eat-In, Take Out and Drive Thru are subtotal functions. In areas
that have different tax rules for eat-in and take out sales, the
EAT-IN, TAKE OUT and DRIVE THRU keys can be
programmed to automatically charge or exempt taxes. Sales may
not be split between Eat-In, Take Out and Drive Thru. The EATIN, TAKE OUT and DRIVE THRU keys maintain separate
totals on the Financial report.
ERROR CORR
Use to correct the last entry. The ERROR CORR key corrects
the appropriate totals and counters.
F/S SHIFT
When pressed before a PLU entry, the F/S SHIFT key reverses
the preprogrammed food stamp status of the PLU. For example,
an item not food stamp eligible can be made food stamp eligible.
F/S SUB
Displays the amount of the sale that is food stamp eligible.
F/S TEND
Use to tender food stamps for eligible sales.
GUEST #
Use to enter the count of guests served as part of a guest check.
KBD SHIFT
Use to shift the keyboard level. Enter 1 or 2 and press the KBD
SHIFT key to change to the appropriate level. A manager key
(X-Mode) may be required.
MACRO (1-10)
Macro keys may be programmed to record, and then later
perform, up to 50 keystrokes.
For example, a macro key could be set to tender (preset tender) a
common currency, such as $5 into the cash key.
RETURN
Used to return or refund merchandise. Returning an item will
also return any tax that may have been applied.

The paid out amount subtracts from the cash-in-drawer total.
Paid outs are allowed outside of a sale only.
% Keys (1-5)
Up to five % keys may be placed on the keyboard. Each % key
is set with a specific function, such as item discount or surcharge,
or sale discount or surcharge.
The percent rate may be entered or preprogrammed, or the
percent keys can be programmed with a negative open or preset
price, thus acting as coupon keys.
A percentage key may also be set up to accept charge tip entries.
PLU
The PLU key is used to register price look-ups by number entry.
PLUs can be programmed open or preset, and positive or
negative.
PRINT CHECK

optional (RS-232C) printer, or can be printed on the receipt
printer. The PRINT CHECK key can be set to automatically
service the check.
PROMO
The PROMO key allows you to account for promotional items,
as in "buy two, and get one free". Pressing this key will remove
an item's cost from the sale, but will include the sale of the item
in the item's sales counter.
FEED
Advances the receipt paper one line, or continuously until the
key is released.
RECD ACCT (1–3)
The RECD ACCT (received on account) key is used to record
media loaned to the cash drawer, or payments received outside of
a sale. The cash drawer will open. The amount received adds to
the cash-in-drawer total.
SCALE
Use to make weight entries. When a scale is attached, press the
scale key to show the weight in the display, then press (or enter)
a PLU to multiple the weight times the price. When a scale is not
attached, you can enter the weight (using the decimal key for
fractions). PLUs may be programmed to require an entry
through the scale key.

TARE
Tares are container weights. If you are using the scale function,
you can preset up to 5 different tare weights. The tare can be
subtracted automatically when a specific PLU is registered, or
manually inputting the tare number and pressing the TARE key

tare weights manually.
TAX EXEMPT
Press the TAX EXEMPT key to exempt tax 1, tax 2, tax 3,
and/or tax 4 from the entire sale.
TAX (1-4) SHIFT
When pressed before a PLU entry, the tax shift keys reverse the
tax status of the PLU, i.e., a PLU with non-tax status would
become taxable or a PLU with tax status would become nontaxable.
TIP
The TIP key allows a gratuity to be added to a guest check
before payment.
The TIP key may be programmed as either a percentage or
amount. If programmed as a percentage, tax programming
defines whether the percentage is calculated on the net amount,
or the amount after taxes.
VOID
Use to correct an item entered earlier within a sale. The VOID
key corrects the appropriate totals and counters. To correct the
last item, use the ERROR CORR key. For void operations
outside of a sale (Transaction Void), use the VOID position on
the control lock. The Financial report records totals for each type
of void separately.
VALID
Validation requires an optional slip printer. Press the VALID key
to print a one-line validation on a separate form or piece of paper.
Any item registration, discount or payment may be validated.
WASTE
The WASTE key allows control of inventory by accounting for
items that must be removed from stock due to spoilage, breakage
or mistakes. Press the WASTE key before entering wasted
items, and then press the WASTE key again to finalize. The
WASTE key may be under manager control, requiring the
control lock to be in the X position. The WASTE key is not

Clerk Sign-On/Sign-Off
See "System Option Programming” to review your clerk options:
•
System option #2 allows you to select direct or code entry sign on
•
System option #3 selects stay-down or pop-up operation.
Depending on how your machine has been programmed, sign-on will take place only at the
beginning of a shift (stay-down), or may have to be repeated for each transaction (pop-up). If
your machine has been programmed for stay-down clerks, the clerk currently signed on must
be signed off before another clerk may be signed on.
Check with your store manager to see which options have been selected for your register.
Before any transaction may take place, a clerk must be signed on. Clerk sign-on is
accomplished in one of two ways:

Item Registrations
All registrations on ER-285M Series are made into open or preset PLUs.
•
In place of traditional PLU keys, some PLUs are located directly on the

on the keyboard, registrations can be into PLUs by entering the PLU code
number and pressing the PLU key on the keyboard.
This system simplifies reporting by listing all items (regardless of how they are entered) on
the PLU report, while reporting for groups of items or categories is available from the Group
report

Keyboard Shift
The KBD SHIFT key is located on the default keyboard and is used to access two levels of
keyboard PLU keys. In the default configuration, keyboard level one accesses PLUs 1-15,
while keyboard level 2 accesses PLUs 16-30. (Note that this numbering sequence can be
changed, see option #37 in “System Option Programming” on page 138.)
Keyboard levels are typically used to separate items sold at different times. For example,
keyboard level one could register breakfast items and keyboard level two could register lunch
items. In this case, when keyboard levels register different items, a different keysheet can be
inserted for the appropriate time of day.
Note that you may be required to place the key in the X position to change levels. See “KBD

in order to determine how the modifier key will affect the PLU entry.
Modifiers can be:
•
Stay down so that registrations will be modified by the same modifier until another
modifier is selected. For example, use stay down for lunch or dinner menus.
•
Pop-up after each item to register, for example large, medium or small soft drink,

Table Service Restaurant Operations
Overview
The SAM4s ER-285M can be used to add items or receive payments on guest checks using a
manual previous balance, hard check, or soft check system. (Note that you must select hard
or soft check posting in memory allocation programming. The default selection is soft.)
•
If manual previous balance is selected, the check balance is not saved in memory
and is input manually by the operator (use the PBAL key).
•
If a hard check system is selected, only the previous balance is maintained in
memory.
•
If a soft check system is selected, the check detail is kept in memory until the
check is paid. (The maximum size of the soft check is set in memory allocation
programming.) When a soft check system is used, the receipt can be used to print
the final check that is presented to the customer for payment.
Consolidation of like items can be selected for guest check printing. For
example, if three rounds of drinks are served, the check will print "3 TAP
BEER" rather than "1 TAP BEER" three times. (See option #20 in “Print
Option Programming” on page 143.)
Note: If you wish to print guest check transactions on a slip or a pre-printed guest
check, an optional slip printer must be connected. See your SAM4s dealer for more
information.

SAM4s ER-285M Operator's and Program Manual v1.4
Function Keys and Options
Functions necessary for restaurant operations may not appear on the default keyboard. Any
or all of the following functions can be located on the keyboard. See "Function Key
Assignment Programming” on page 113 if it is necessary to locate these keys on your
keyboard.
The CHECK # key is used to begin a new, or access an existing
CHECK #
balance (hard check) or itemized bill (soft check.) Existing checks
are accessed by entering the check track number and pressing the
CHECK# key. The Check # key may be set with the following
options:
•
A check must be started before items may be entered.
•
The clerk that opens the check has exclusive access.
•
Only one check may be allowed per table.
•
The check # may be automatically assigned by the register.
•
Check track numbers that are entered manually may be set at a
fixed length of one to nine digits. Check track numbers assigned
automatically will begin with #1.
In a drive thru system, simply pressing the PBAL key will recall the
oldest open balance (lowest check track #).
GUEST
Use to enter the count of guests served as part of a guest check. The
entry of a guest count can be enforced when opening a guest check,
or for all transactions.
P/BAL
Use to enter the amount of an outstanding balance. The P/BAL key
will take the recall function if the drive thru feature is enabled in
CHECK # key programming.
SERVICE
Use to temporarily finalize Previous Balance or check tracking
transactions. (If you are using a hard check system, you must
program the SERVICE key for the port where the slip printer is
connected.)
TABLE
You can enforce the entry of a table number for guest check
transactions, or for all transactions. If you are tracking guest check
balances, the balance can be recalled either by entering the check
number or the table number.
PRINT CHECK
Use to print a soft check. The check can be printed on an optional
(RS-232C) printer, or can be printed on the receipt printer. The
PRINT CHECK key can be set to automatically service the check.
TIP
The TIP key allows a gratuity to be added to a guest check before
payment.
The TIP key may be programmed as either a percentage or amount.
If programmed as a percentage, tax programming defines whether
the percentage is calculated on the net (taxable = no) amount, or the
amount after taxes.

Clerk Interrupt
A transaction in progress can be interrupted so that another transaction can take place.
•
Clerk interrupt can be used in a retail store where more than one clerk is sharing the
same cash register. A clerk begins registering items for a customer. This transaction
is delayed while the clerk is helping the customer select another item. In the mean
time another customer is ready to check out with a different clerk. Or,
•
Clerk interrupt can also be used in a retail store with a single clerk. If a transaction is
started and delayed, the same clerk can interrupt the transaction to help another
customer.
With clerk interrupt implemented, the second clerk can sign on before the first transaction is
finalized. When the sign on is completed, the first transaction is suspended, and the second
clerk can register a new transaction. When the first clerk signs on again, the balance of the
suspended transaction is recalled and the clerk can complete the original transaction.
Note: The clerk interrupt feature is only available when the check tracking system is
not being used. System option #26 provides an option for either clerk interrupt or check
tracking is selected.
Clerk Interrupt Program Notes
To Implement the Clerk Interrupt System:
1. Set system option #2 to a value of 1 (code entry clerk system). See "System
Option Programming” on page 138.
2. Set system option #26 to a value of 1 (clerk interrupt system selected). See
"System Option Programming” on page 138.
3. Set clerk codes. See “Program 800 - Secret Code Programming” on page 175.

Memory Allocation
The amount of memory in the ER-285M is fixed and has a default allocation, i.e. you can use
2000 PLUs, 15 clerks, 20 groups, etc. A significant amount of standard memory is not
allocated, therefore you can easily add to the default quantities of many memory items.
This program allows you to change the default allocation in each of nine areas. The default,
minimum and maximum for each memory area is shown on the table below:

Function Key Assignment Programming
Function keys may be relocated, inactivated or changed with this program. For example, you
may wish to place functions, such as PREVIOUS BALANCE and SERVICE that are not
placed on the default keyboard. Or perhaps, you may wish to remove a function, such as
CANCEL, for security reasons.
Please note the following limitations:
•
If you assign a duplicate of a function code, the duplicate will function exactly as
the original - you will not get separate totals and counters on reports for the
duplicated key.
•
You can reassign keys only in locations that are programmable. See "Default
Keyboard“, where the key locations that may be programmed are identified.
To Assign a Function Key to a Location
1. Turn the control lock to the S position.

Overview
Most register programming takes place in program mode (the control lock is placed in the
PGM positon.) Programs here include:
•
Tax Programming – Set tax rates or tables can be set for each of four possible taxes.
Value added taxes and GST (Canada) can be set.
•
PLU Programming – Set PLU prices, descriptors and options. Also assign PLUs to
groups, link to other PLUs, assign to mix and match groups, set stock levels and set
additional options
•
System Option Programming – Set options related to the operation of your register.
•
Print Option Programming – Set options related to the printing of receipts and
reports.
•
Function Key Programming – Set descriptors, entry limits and specific options
related to each function key you may be using.
•
Clerk Programming – Set names, codes and drawer assignments for each clerk.
•
Mix & Match Programming – Apply discounts such as “buy 2 and get $1 off”.
•
Group Programming – Groups collect sales from sets of items (PLUs) Set
descriptors and options for groups here.
•
Miscellaneous Programming—Program macro sequences, logo messages,
financial/clerk report messages, NLU assignments, cash-in-drawer limit, check
change limit, date/time, scale tare weights, and the machine number.
•
Program Scans – Print a record of you register program.
•
Program Backup and Restore – Back up your program to a SD memory card.

Default Programming
Each SAM4s ECR is ready to use after un-boxing, loading the paper and completing the
memory all clear procedure (see “Quick Start Guide” on page 13.)
•
All keyboard PLUs are nontaxable and preset, with a “0” price and a default
status programming of "00000000".
•
All system options are set to 0 in default programming, unless otherwise noted.
Change only the options that will deviate from default programming. There is no
need to re-enter an option status of 0, since 0 is its original setting.
•
All programming (unless otherwise noted) is done with the control lock in the
PGM position. Each section details a specific area of register programming.
Descriptor Programming Methods
Descriptors are programmable for PLUs, function keys, groups, clerks and the logo/messages.
There are two methods available to program descriptors, the program Program Overlay
Method, and the Descriptor Code Method. The method you use will depend upon the setting
you make at system option #32.
Descriptor Program Overlay
Note: The overlay depicted here is not actual size. See your SAM4s dealer for actual
size overlays and key sheets.

Initial Clear
The initial clear function allows you to exit any register activity and return to a beginning or
cleared state. Any transaction that is in progress will be exited and totals for that transaction
will not be updated.
CAUTION: Do not share this information with unauthorized users. Distribute the P
Mode key only to those you may want to perform this function.
Here are some reasons you may want to perform an initial clear:
•
The register is in an unknown state, and you wish to exit the current program or
transaction without following normal procedures.
•
You have performed a function that includes a compulsory activity and you wish
to bypass the compulsion.
•
An initial clear may be necessary as part of servicing, or troubleshooting.
To Perform an Initial Clear:
1. Turn the register power switch to the OFF position.
2. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.
3. Press and hold the key position where the CASH key is located on the default
keyboard. Be sure to press the lower key of the two-position CASH/TEND key.
(Because the ER-285M keyboard is programmable, your keyboard may have
another function in this location. Use this location even if your keyboard has
been modified and a different function is in this location.)
4. Continue to hold this key while turning register power switch to the ON position.
5. The message "INITIAL CLEAR OK!” prints when the initial clear is complete.
Release the CASH key.

Tax Programming
The ER-285M Series has the capability to support four separate taxes.
Taxes can be calculated as either a straight percentage rate between .001% and 99.999%, or a
60 break point tax table. Each tax may be either an add-on tax (added to the cost of a taxable
item), or a value added tax (VAT) that is included in the price of the item.
Tax rate 4 may be set to function as the Canadian Goods & Services Tax (GST). Definitions
for tax rates 1, 2, 3 & 4 are made as part of tax programming.
•
If you are entering a tax rate (add-on or VAT), see "Straight Percentage Tax Rate
Programming" to enter the percentage rate.
•
If you are entering a Canadian Goods and Services Tax (GST), use tax rate 4 for
the GST tax, and use tax rates 1, 2 and/or 3 for any other provincial tax or taxes.
See "Straight Percentage Tax Rate Programming" to enter the GST status and
percentage rate.
Important Note: After you have entered your tax program(s), test for accuracy by
entering several transactions of different dollar amounts. Carefully check to make sure
the tax charged by the cash register matches the tax on the printed tax chart for your
area. As a merchant, you are responsible for accurate tax collection. If the cash register
is not calculating tax accurately, contact your dealer for assistance.
SAM4s ER-285M Operator's and Program Manual v1.4

Straight Percentage Tax Rate Programming
When tax requirements may be met using a straight percentage rate, use the following method
to program a tax as a straight percentage.
Programming Straight Percentage Tax Rates and Status
1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.
2. If the tax is a percentage rate, with a decimal. (0.000-99.999). It is not
necessary to enter preceding zeros. For example, for 6%, enter 06.000 or
6.000.
3. For the type of tax:
If the tax is a percentage added to the sale (normal add on tax),
enter:
0
If the tax is a percentage value added tax (VAT; calculated as part of
the sale), enter:
2
4. Enter 0 here for all taxes, unless if you are programming tax 4 as a Canadian
GST. If tax 4 is a Canadian GST, enter the sum of the options below:
OPTION
VALUE
GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 1?
Yes = 1
No = 0
GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 2?
Yes = 2
No = 0
GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 3?
Yes = 4
No = 0

Tax Table Programming
In some cases, a tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly the tax charts that
apply in your area (even if the tax chart is based on a percentage). In these cases, we
recommend that you enter your tax using tax table programming. This method will match tax
collection exactly to the break points of your tax table.
Before programming, obtain a copy of the tax table you wish to program. You will need the
printed tax table if you wish to determine the break point entries yourself.
Note: You can enter up to 60 break points.
Determining Break Point Entries
1. Examine the printed tax table for the tax you are programming.
2. Refer to the “Tax Table Programming Example - Illinois 6% Tax Table” to help
with this exercise.
3. Calculate the break point differences by subtracting the high side of the previous
range from the high side of the dollar range.
4. Examine the pattern of break point differences to determine when the break
points begin to repeat. Mark the beginning break points that do not fit a pattern
as “non-repeat breaks.” Mark the break points that are repeating in a pattern as
“repeat breaks.”
Programming a Tax Table
1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.
2. Enter 10.
3. Enter a digit to represent the tax you are programming:
1 for TAX 1
2 for TAX 2
3 for TAX 3
4 for TAX 4
4. Press the TAX key.
5. Enter the maximum amount that is not taxed and press the appropriate TAX key.
6. Enter the first tax amount charged and press the appropriate TAX key.
7. For each non-repeat break point, up to the last non-repeat break point, enter the
high side from the sale dollar range and press the appropriate TAX key.
8. For the last non-repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range
and press the X/TIME key.
9. For each repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range and
press the appropriate TAX key.
10. Press the CASH key to end the tax table program.

Mix & Match Programming
Retailers often offer discounts when multiples of different items are purchased. For example,
the offer: “save $5 on any three bottles of wine” can be handled by a mix and match discount.
The default ER-285M can accommodate up to 10 different mix and match discounts, the total
can be increased through memory allocation.
Mix & Match Tables have the following programming options that are set through separate
programs:
•
Program 600 - Trip Level Programming sets the number of items that must be
purchased to receive the discount.
•
Program 601 - Price Programming sets the amount of the discount
•
Program 610 - Mix & Match Description Programming allows you to set a
unique, up to 18character, descriptor for Mix & Match Table.
•
The mix & match discount can be set to be taxable (tax the net amount) or nontaxable (tax the gross amount). See system option #31 in “System Option
Programming” on page 138.
You also must link eligible items to the appropriate table. See “Program 450 - PLU Mix &
Match Programming” on page 137 to identify the mix and match table for the eligible PLU.

update files are supplied by CRS in the form of a file named “ER-280.BIN” and posted on the
dealer pages of www.crs-usa.com. Detailed update instructions will be supplied with the
update package.)
To perform an update:
1. At your PC, create a folder in the root of the SD card named “update”.
2. Copy the update file “ER-280.BIN” to the “update” folder.
3. Place the SD card in the SD port of the ER-285M, located on the right side of the
register.
4. Turn the key lock to the S position. (Note that the S position is one position clockwise from the PGM position. The S position is not labeled.)
5. Enter 55, press SUBTOTAL, and then press CASH. The display will indicate that
the card is being read. The register will beep three times when the update is
complete.
6. RAM Clear the register. See “Quick Start Step #3: Memory All Clear” on page 21.
