Verify Correctness of Weight and Price
Verification of information on labels should be made routinely. Check the
multiplication of price-per-pound times weight and check the indicated weight
against printed weight. Weigh the same package several times to verify
consistency. Bear in mind that some packages which weigh near the middle of the
.01 lb. increment will normally vary up or down by .01 lb. Greater variations than
.01 lb. indicate a need for adjustment of the system. In such cases, or whenever
necessary, call your authorized Hobart service representative.

Printing
SD scales are supplied with a label printer. The printer will accept label or
continuous paper rolls that have either one of two core diameters.
The printer is fitted with a small hub to take continuous paper or label rolls with
the small core diameter.
A sleeve is provided to slip over the small hub for use with continuous paper or
label rolls having the larger core diameter.
Check that the correct size of hub is installed before loading the continuous paper
or label roll. Change the printer hub if necessary.
Before you use your scale you should check that the appropriate type of printer
roll is loaded and adjust the label width guide if you load a printer roll of a different
width.
Note: The printer automatically adjusts to accommodate labels having different
lengths.
Should labels become stuck in the printer, under no circumstances
use a metal object to clear the blockage.
Do not use sharp or metal objects to remove accumulated debris.
The use of non-approved printer rolls may reduce the life of the print
head and invalidate your warranty.
Approved labels and paper rolls are available from a number of suppliers, whose
addresses can be obtained from your Hobart sales/service office. Refer to Label
Source, page 6.
If ‘Out of Paper’ displays, the label or printer roll is depleted. Replace roll when
needed.
If ‘Label Feed Error’ displays, labels are jamming in the printer. Clear jam and refeed paper roll through the printhead.
Advancing the Printer Roll
• To advance the paper roll, or print a blank label, press Print when either
‘Enter PLU’ or ‘Prepack’ is displayed and both unit price and total price are
zero.

Setting Up the ADD Label
The ADD function enables you to obtain a label with totals printed on it.
Your scale can be configured to print one of two types of ADD labels:
• Weighed and By Count transactions with a label after each transaction and a
single ADD label at the end of all the transactions.
• Weighed and By Count transactions with a single ADD label at the end of all
the transactions.
For information on sell by dates, refer to Date Code, page 22.
For information on sales texts, refer to Sales Messages, page 22.
NOTE: The labels for a single PLU use the PLU’s bar code format.
Bar Code Printing in ADD Mode
You can print the PLU label barcode on the ADD total label, however:
• The PLU bar code must use the appropriate format.
• ADD label bar code must be enabled.
• All the transactions must be for the same PLU.

Operator names are printed on the operator totals report.
The operator name or number can be printed on a label if a suitable label format is
selected and the appropriate substitution code is included. Refer to Substitution
Codes, pages 86 - 95, for the sales message text.
Operator PIN
The factory default setting for operator 1 PIN is 4296 and for operator 1 security
level is 2 (Full Access).
All other operators will have factory default settings of PIN 0 and security level 0
unless you change them.
Each operator may be assigned a PIN between 0 and 99999999 which must be
entered when logging on or off. If the PIN is left at 0, a PIN is not required when
logging on or off.
• If you make a mistake while entering the number press
Clear
and reenter.
Changing Operator PIN
If you have set up and assigned a dedicated PIN key, the operator can change his
or her PIN. Refer to Logging On/Off, page 41.
Always make sure that at least one operator has a security level set high enough to
be able to change PINs and operator security in Manager Mode. If you accidentally
set all the security levels too low, refer to Setup Mode, page 82.
Operator Security Level
There are three security levels: 0, 1 or 2.
Security level determines which scale functions can be accesed by the operator.
An operator can access a function if the operator’s security level is the same or
higher than the security level required for the function.
Operator Status
The default operator mode is trading. You can change the operator mode from
trading to training (or back again from training to trading) provided that there are
no outstanding transactions against that operator.
If there are any current transactions you will see the message Print Trans displayed
briefly and the machine will revert to the previous mode.
If there are totals outstanding you will see the message ‘Clear Trans. No.?’.
• Press Clear , or press Enter to return to the previous mode without clearing
transactions for the operator.
23
Setting Function Security Levels
There are three security levels: 0, 1 or 2.
Security level determines which scale functions can be accesed by the operator.
An operator can access a function if the operator’s security level is the same or
higher than the security level required for the function.
If ‘Call Supervisor’ is displayed, your security level is not high enough.
Security level 0 means that any operator can access that function.
The following functions have factory preset security levels, as follows:

Manager Functions
You can assign a security level to most of the manager functions or you can
change the level set, provided that your own security level is the same or higher
than the function security.
Always make sure that you have at least one operator with a security level high
enough to change Operator PIN and security level settings.
It is possible to inadvertently set all users security levels so that security levels can
no longer be modified and no user has access to any sales or manager functions.
If this happens refer to Setup Mode, page 82.

Scale Setup
To customize the way your scale operates, select function keys, programming
them for quick access to functions and specify criteria for printing labels.
You must be in Manager Mode to perform any programming operation. Refer to
Entering Manager Mode, page 16.
Direct Access Speedkeys or Hot Keys
Some functions have keys associated with them to give direct access to the
function instead of stepping through the menus. This helps you perform manager
functions more quickly
The default keys set up for the machine and their relative positions on the keyboard
are shown below.
Speedkeys
To program keys for other menus with associated ‘hot’ keys:
1. Navigate to the menu for which you require quick access.
2. Hold down the key you want to use until you hear a series of short bleeps
followed by a long bleep.
‘Entry Accepted’ will display when the key has been assigned.
NOTE: Customized speedkey assignments are not saved when you perform a
machine dump, nor are they restored with a machine load. The default direct
access keys are restored.
26
Speedkeys
Speedkeys can be assigned to any of the programmable keys on the keyboard.
You can label the speedkey positions according to your own requirements.
The diagram shows how to assign a speedkey for PLU 117. The procedure is
similar for any other type of dedicated key.
NOTE: If you are assigning a key to a position previously assigned to a function
key, hold down the key until you hear a series of short beeps followed by a long
beep.
Speedkeys can be allocated to Departments, Groups, Tares, or other references
that do not have a dedicated key on the keyboard.
To set up a speedkey, do not enter a reference number for the key before assigning
it to the keyboard.

Printer Setup
This group of functions enable you to customize the way that your scale generates
and prints labels.
Label Setup
These appearance options for labels also have options that select how labels are
generated and printed.
Label Type
Labels can be either separate or continuous.
Continuous Labels
Continuous labels can be printed on a tally roll or on a continuous
label roll. If you use varying lengths or formats for labels, printing on a
continuous label roll uses the printer roll more economically.
Separate Labels
When using separate labels, the labels must be appropriately sized for
the format assigned to the PLU, the department and the scale.
Label Format
The label format can be either open or closed. Twelve standard label formats
and four nutritional label formats are available. Any format can be set to suit
your requirements.
With the open label format, labels are printed according to the format that is
stored in the PLU record.
With a closed label format, labels are printed according to the label format
that has been assigned to the scale.
If the Override key has been selected, the label prints according to the format
assigned to the scale.
Tare Interlock
If the Tare Interlock is enabled, you must select a tare in order to print a
label.
Print Modes
You can select one of three ways to print labels, print on request, print
immediate or prepack.
Print on Request
• Press your operator key or
Print
to obtain the label.
Weighed and non-weighed transactions will be assigned to the default
operator number.
Print Immediate
The machine issues a label as soon as the weight on the machine
becomes steady. It does not retain the PLU or tare.
Weighed transactions will be assigned to the default operator number.
• You cannot use
28
Override
.
Prepack
All labels will be assigned to the default operator number.
The machine retains the PLU and tare (if set up) and issues a label each
time the weight becomes steady.
Default Operator
• When selecting the print mode you will be asked to enter an
operator number. This number will be assigned to the Print
key.
Machine Message
You can assign a message reference to a machine. The substitution code %%M
can be programmed into a PLU text field, sales message or store name. The code
is replaced by the assigned message which is printed in the appropriate text field
on the label.
Print Speed and Print Density Settings
You can enter a print speed between 50mm/s and 80mm/s. A slower print speed
may improve print quality on low specification paper. Low print speed may also
help if you have peel off problems with some types of label.
You can set the print density between 0% and 100%. The default setting is 100%
but you may want to decrease the density when using a slow print speed.
Assigning a Bar Code Format
To print Bar Code on a label, a format must have been assigned to the scale.
On label machines the format assigned to the machine is used unless the PLU has
a programmed barcode. Enter a bar code reference number from 0 to 11.
For more information on creating and selecting bar code formats, refer to Bar
Codes, page 54.

Logos
Logos are typically bitmap images in a file listed by reference number. A logo can be
placed on a label if the label format permits. Logos are usually customer specified
and customer provided. Some logos may require a custom label format.
Bar Code
Most labels printed by the SD scale use a price embedded bar code (UPC 12
format on Hobart Label Formats) which provide the transaction price to the
checkout or POS system.
Bar Code Format
Bar codes will only be printed if you assign a bar code format to the PLU.
Hobart Label Formats usually use Bar Code Format 1 (UPC12), like this:
2AAAAAVPPPPC
Bar Code Number
When creating a PLU, the unit or item price will be included in the PPPPP or
price zone of the bar code. When creating the PLU, you can enter the PLU
number in the AAAAA zone of the bar code. Refer to Bar Code Formats,
pages 54 - 60.
Traceability
This function allows you to include ‘country of origin’ information on the label if
the label format provides for this. Hobart Label Format 8 provides a field for this
information. The data files are setup for one of three traceability schemes: Farm
Raised Fish, Wild Seafood, or Meat. Space is provided on Label Format 8 to print
the following: Lot Number, Born In Country, Raised In Country, and Processed In
Country. Refer to the List of Countries on pages 96 - 97.
Nutri Panel
A Nutritional Panel can be programmed with the PLU to print as a separate label
from the bar code label. If using continuous label stock, the two are printed in
sequence and can be torn off separately or together.

Deleting PLUs
You should delete PLUs that are no longer used to reduce PLU file size. In some
cases you will delete a range of products (for example all products in a department)
or sometimes the complete product file to ensure that no obsolete products exist
in the scale. If the PLU has outstanding totals you should print a clearing totals
report for the PLU before deleting it.
NOTE: The default security level for Single PLU delete is 1. The default security
level for the Range delete and All PLU delete is 2.
Copying PLUs
This function enables you to copy the data from an existing PLU to a new one.
The new PLU has a different PLU number and bar code number, and can also be
in a different department. The new bar code number will default so that the article
number matches the PLU number. If the bar code number is already in use, then
the bar code number will be set to zero.
Promotions
You can program PLUs with a promotional price or offer. If you select a PLU with
a promotion, the PLU description on the display flashes. A custom Label Format
is needed for this application.
Four types of promotion are available: Price promotion, frequent shopper
promotion, weight or items free promotion, and discount promotion.
Labels can be printed with a message giving details of the savings to the
customer. A suitable label format must be selected when programming the
PLU for promotional information to be printed on the label. You can select the
promotional message to always print or to print only when the promotional price
is enabled.
Promotions are programmed in Creating and Editing PLUs, pages 33 - 40.
• Pressing Override disables the promotion.
Applying a manual discount to a PLU disables the promotional discount.

Price Promotion
You can program a PLU with a second unit or item price and different weighed
quantities or number of items that enable the second price,
The promotional price is enabled when the pre-programmed weight or
quantity is purchased.
You can change the unit or item price and the promotional prices using
Change Price.
If you program the weighed quantity as 0.00, or the number of items as 0, the
promotion will always be enabled.
Sales labels can be printed with details of the savings to the customer.
To print promotional information on the label you must select an appropriate
label format when programming the PLU.
Frequent Shopper Promotion
If you program a PLU with a frequent shopper promotion, you can have two prices
printed on the label, the normal selling price and a special price.
If the customer is in the frequent shopper scheme, the PoS terminal will use
the special price when the goods are totaled at the checkout.
If the customer is not in the frequent shopper scheme the normal selling
price is used.
A frequent shopper price is not dependant on the weight or quantity
purchased.
Three types of Frequent Shopper promotion are available:
Price — a second price for the PLU applies if the customer is part of the
frequent shopper program.
% Discount — the discount is calculated as a percentage of the original unit
price or of the total price for the PLU. You enter the discount percentage as
a whole number: A price reduction of 3% is entered as 3.00.
Price Reduction — The unit or total price of the PLU is reduced by the value
programmed.
Promo Messages
You can assign a promotional (sales) message to any promotion. If you select
Conditional the sales message is printed only when the promotion is active. If you
select Unconditional, the default setting, the sales message is always printed.
If you assign a promo sales message to a frequent shopper promotion it is always
printed.
The message text can contain codes, as listed below, or Dewey Decimal codes to
print information about the transaction. The codes are:
%%S
prints the value saved.
%%N
prints the price to pay with promotion.
%%G
prints the price to pay without promotion.
%%F
prints the weight or items given free.
NOTE: For other codes that you can use in a promotional message refer to Sales
Messages, page 22, and to Substitution Codes and Dewey Substitution Codes,
pages 86 - 95.

Creating a Nutritional Panel
Short Nutrition Facts
You can enter the information required to create a nutritional label at the end of
the Create & Edit function.
The nutritional label shows the weight and percentage per serving of the nutrient
content of a product relative to the recommended daily intake.
You can print nutrition facts on a separate
label either before or after the PLU label.
Label Format 14
(prints Nutrition Facts inverted)
The format of this label is factory set and
cannot be altered. Label rotation can be
0° or 180° and you can select either short
label format or long label format, as shown
at left, according to the label format number
programmed in the PLU.
Label Formats 12, 13, 14, and 15 are used
for the fixed format Nutritional Labels. They
are printed separate from, and sequentially
after, the item label which contains the Bar
Code.
Long Nutrition Facts Label Format 12 prints the Short Nutrition
Facts Panel in the same direction as the
item label. Label Format 14 prints the Short
Nutrition Facts Panel in reverse direction
from the item label (shown left, using Label
Format 2 for the item label).
Label Format 13 prints the Long Nutrition
Facts Panel in the same direction as the
item label. Label Format 15 prints the Long
Nutrition Facts Panel in reverse direction
from the item label.
If you are using label rolls then the nutritional
and PLU labels must be the same size. If
you are using continuous labels then the
size of the labels (the label format) can be
different.
Serving Per Container
The number of servings per container is
calculated automatically by dividing the
total weight of the product in the container
by the serving size (in grams) programmed
in the PLU:
total weight in container
serving size in grams
When programming the PLU the serving size in grams must be included in the
20 character text for serving size and the value %%C as the text for servings per
container.
The scale looks for a numerical value followed by a g or G in the serving size text
and uses that weight to calculate the number of servings.

Serving Customers
This sections covers operation of the scale when you are serving customers. Use
care when placing heavy items on the platter such as water melon so that they do
not roll off the machine.
Basic Operations
Logging On / Off

Security Level
Security levels are assigned to the scale functions on your machine. Also, each
operator is assigned a security level. There are three levels: 0, 1, and 2. The
security level of the operator determines his or her access to scale functions. The
operators security level must be equal or higher than the functions security level
for him or her to have access to the function. Only operators with security level
equal to or greater than the function security level are listed for selection.

Bar Codes
Bar codes identify specific data about the product, such as: price, quantity, PLU
number.
The list of Bar Codes most frequently used have been preloaded into the scale.
These are listed below, on this page. Format 1 is the most common. Whatever
bar code your POS system uses is the one you will want to adopt.
Using fixed bar code formats as a series of numbers and letters, each number and
letter represents a digit in the bar code. By rearranging these groups of digits you
can redefine how information is printed on the bar code.
You can select one of the barcode types for labels or you can switch off the bar
code. Refer to Assigning a Bar Code Format, page 29.
You can create and store up to 15 bar code formats.
54
Bar Code Types
The bar code types available are listed, as follows:
EAN 13
Fixed format
UPC12

UPC13
Fixed format
Fixed Format Bar Codes
There are several types of fixed format barcode which are accepted internationally
for use in the retail trade. The type of barcode used depends on the standard
adopted by a particular country.
For example, the United States uses UPC bar codes, while European countries
use EAN type bar codes.
Default Format
Each type of bar code has been programmed into the scale as a standard format
for the bar code digits. These ‘default Bar Code Formats’ are listed on page 54.
The bar code formats can be redefined to enable a source marked bar code or dry
article bar code to be printed.
Variable Format Bar Codes
You can enter data freely to specify the information you require to be embedded
in the barcode provided it satisfies the requirements for the barcode type you are
using. For example, it may need to be capable of encoding using AIs.
Printing Bar Codes
Bar codes will only be printed if you assign a default bar code format to the scale
or enable the bar code to be included in a PLU. Refer to Assigning a Bar Code
Format, page 29, and Bar Code, page 37.
Defining the Bar Code Format
Bar codes are printed as a series of bars and digits on receipts and labels. Bar
Code digits are arranged in groups or fields known as the bar code format. Each
group of digits conveys specific information, as shown in the example on the
previous page.
You can re-define the bar code formats to enable a source marked bar code or dry
article bar code to be printed.
You can define and store up to 15 bar code formats.
Incorrectly Defined Formats
If you define the bar code incorrectly, the message “Invalid Entry” is displayed,
followed by the bar code format. The wrongly entered character flashes enabling
you to correct it. If more than one character is incorrect the first incorrect one
flashes. When all the characters are corrected the first character of the bar code
will flash.

Price Embedded Bar Code
Some goods may come from the manufacturer already weighed and priced, for
example frozen chickens and pre-packed fruit and vegetables. In this case the
manufacturers barcode will include the product number and the selling price.
Creating the Product (PLU) File for Pre-Priced Goods
Create a suitable bar code format for use with in-store, pre-priced goods. The
recommended format is:
02AAAAVPPPPPC.
First create the Bar Code before you create the PLU. Refer to Creating a Bar Code
Reference, page 60. Afterwards, you should do the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Create a weighed or By Count PLU.
Enter a label format that supports bar codes.
Program the unit or item price.
Enter any other product information you want to include in the product file.
Select bar code enabled.
Enter the bar code format reference.
Enter the product number.
NOTE: You can only enter the product number in the designated article number
positions (A) in the bar code.
8. Print the bar code labels and attach to the goods.
When you scan the price embedded bar code in sales mode, weighed goods are
treated as a By Count item. The receipt shows the description programmed in the
PLU and the price embedded in the in-store bar code.
NOTE: If there is a promotion active for that PLU it will be cancelled.

Bar Code Scanning
When the bar code is scanned, the machine searches the bar code list for a prefix
that matches the one in the scanned bar code. If it fails to find a matching bar
code, it treats the bar code as a dry article bar code.
The bar code format can be either the one assigned to the machine or the bar
code format programmed in the PLU. The machine will use a PLU bar code if
programmed rather than the one assigned to the machine.
NOTE: The scanner will use the first bar code type it encounters with a prefix
matching the one on the goods. It is important that you do not program different
bar code types with the same prefix.
Assigning a Bar Code
Assign any bar code reference to the machine and program the required
label bar code in the PLU.
Programming the bar code in the PLU is the preferred method as it is the
safest.
Alternatively, you may:
Assign the required bar code reference to the scale and program the PLU
bar code reference to 0.
Check that the machine selects the correct PLU when you scan a source
marked (branded) bar code.
Check that the machine prints the correct bar code when you create an
in-store bar code.
Assign a bar code reference to the machine to enable bar code printing.

Creating a Bar Code Reference
You can create up to nine bar code references for labels, one for receipts and
one for talons. You can select one bar code type for each reference. The machine
displays bar code default formats as a series of numbers and letters. Each number
and letter represents a digit in the bar code. You may rearrange these groups of
digits to redefine how information is printed on the bar code. For details of the bar
code digits you can enter, refer to Bar Code Formats, pages 54, 56 - 57.

PRODUCT TRACEABILITY — COOL
This section describes how to set up and use ‘product traceability’, an audit trail
for a product from the stages in its production to its original source. Used for
beef, pork and other types of meat products, and/or non-meat products such as
fish or cheese, the process is known as ‘Country of Origin Labeling’ or COOL.
The instructions in this section describe how to set up and use the process for
tracking beef carcases. To use the process for other types of products, you should
change the data names and programming texts to suit the product.
Text options for the current COOL requirements include the following:
1. If all steps take place in the U.S.A. then the product can be labeled
“Product of the United States”.
2. If all steps take place outside of the U.S.A. then the product can be
labeled “Product of (the country that the process step took place
in)”.
3. If the last 1 or more steps (including the processed step) took place
in the United States, then the product can be labeled “Imported
from (the last country that the product came from before entering
the United States), (the steps that occurred in the U.S.A.) in the
United States”. (Note that more information could be printed for
each country if there were sufficient records to track the product
through each country, but it is not required).
4. If the product is wild fish or shellfish, the label can say “Wild fish or
shellfish” followed by the country information.
5. If the product is farm-raised fish or shellfish, then the label can say
“Farm-Raised fish or shellfish” followed by the country information.
6. If the product is a mixed product, then the labeling will follow the
above guidelines with each product’s country of origin information
being sorted alphabetically by the first country that appears in the
country of origin statement.
NOTE: Refer to the List of Countries, pages 96 - 97.
Using Traceability
Traceability details are printed on labels for all products associated with a carcass
or batch. The Traceability Format defines the way in which the information is
printed on the labels according to the text and data type programmed into the
traceability format.
The Traceability Bar Code Format defines the actual data and messages printed
and / or may also contain additional information provided by the supplier.
The Traceability Tables are a database of local regions or categories held by
the scale. These provide additional traceability information in relation to specific
carcass/lot numbers. For non-preset PLUs, this database is referenced for each
specific carcass/lot number and the details printed on the label or receipt. You
can print carcass/batch data on labels or receipts for all products associated with
a particular carcass or batch. You can print counter service tray labels providing
full traceability information for the customer. And you can create duplicate
passports, including a copy of the original bar code.
61
Non-Preset Mode
The full traceability or batch details are scanned or entered from the sales keyboard
each time the operator selects a different batch at the scale.
This is particularly suitable for prepack operations where the operator may be
packing a complete batch in one session and then selecting a new complete
batch to pack.
Traceability Schemes
Preloaded traceability schemes 1, 2 and 3 are available for use.
Additionally, you can set up a different scheme for each type of product that
requires traceability. For each scheme you can select the way in which it operates
from the following:
GTIN Operation
Select GTIN Operation Y if you require traceability records to be uniquely identified
by a lot number and GTIN. GTIN codes contain data uniquely identifying the
supplier and product type.
Label or Receipt Printing
You must select Label & Receipt for traceability information to be printed on
Sales Receipts.
Prepack Operation
You must select Prepack & Counter for traceability information to be printed on
both counter receipts and labels. If you select Prepack Only, the information will
only be printed on labels.
Weight Limits
You should select No Weight Limit if you do not want to use weight limits during
trading.
Selecting Pack Weight allows you to set weight limits for individual cases or
packs.
Date Limits
Select No Date Limit if you do not want to use date limits during trading. You will
not be prompted to enter dates when creating records.
62
Scheme Reference
This is the reference number from 1 to 10 that is used to link the batch being
processed to the correct scheme. For schemes operating in preset mode, when
the PLU is selected, the associated lot number will link the PLU to the correct
scheme.
Scheme Name
You can program a scheme name (up to 20 alpha/numeric characters) for easier
identification of a scheme.
Life
You can set the number of days of duration for a scheme. This is usually referred
to as the scheme life and has a default value of 30 days.
Linking a Scheme to a PLU
When creating or editing a PLU, you will be asked to enter the scheme reference
number for the PLU if tracability has been enabled and more than one traceability
scheme exists.
Printing the Information
Traceability information is normally printed in text field 3. You can print any of the
data in other text fields provided you embed the appropriate %% codes or Dewey
Decimal Codes (refer to Table of Substitution Codes, page 66).
In preset mode, you can print the traceability information as a single block of text
or as individual lines of text which can be printed in different areas of the label.
To enable traceability text line printing, you must embed the appropriate Dewey
code in the sales message to select text printed as a block or as individual lines
(refer to page 22). You must also separate the lines of text in the traceability
text panel using ‘line feed’ and ‘center line feed’ characters. For text entering
information, refer to Create and Edit Text on page 18.
You must select a suitable label format or the data cannot be printed. When
programming PLUs, you must select Traceability On to be able to use traceability
for that product.
Listed below are the operations you need to perform to enable traceability
information to be printed on labels.
1. Enable receipt or counter service printing if required.
2. Define the bar code format for non-standard AI reference codes.
3. Program the tables with the data names and associated text as you want
them to appear on the traceability panel.
4. Create the traceability format which defines the way in which the information
will be printed on the label.
5. Set up the traceability schemes required.
Use Label Format 8, page 104. Use Origin 1, Origin 2, Origin 3 and the reference
numbers on the List of Countries, pages 96 - 97. Use the Table of Substitution
Codes on page 66.
63
Programming Traceability Codes
If you are using nonpreset schemes or scanning supplier proprietary bar codes,
you need to set up tables for the following three items: country (state) of origin,
slaughter plant references and cutting plant references.
Creating Messages
When creating messages, make sure that the messages programmed in your
scale match the messages used your suppliers. All your suppliers must use the
same messages. You can create seven different lists of messages, as follows:
List
Records
Characters
Origin
300

Origin, slaughter and cutting references are mandatory. Category, breed, type
and species is additional information which can be included.
Setting Up the Scale
Creating the Traceability Panel Format
The traceability panel format defines the text to be printed on the label and the
type of data to be printed on the label.
Type the text to be printed on the label. Refer to the Table of Substitution Codes,
page 66, and enter the required code to define the type of data to be printed with
the text on the label.
The maximum number of characters that you can have in the traceability panel
format is 2000 (including spaces). For text entering information, refer to Create
and Edit Text on page 18.
Default Traceability Format
This is already set up in the scale and allows for both fixed bar codes and EAN
standard bar codes.

Reports
This section shows how to create and print reports. If the scale is part of a network,
the reports will apply to all scales on the network.
Totals are updated wheneverr a label has been printed successfully.
You must be in Manager Mode to print a report.
You can assign a security level to any report.
Missing Fields
If there is no data for a particular field, that field will not be printed on the report.
As an example, if you print a Grand or Operator report and no voids have been
registered, the Void Value and Void Count lines are not printed.
Sales Value
Sales values show actual turnover. Sales totals are not reduced by refunds or
returns. Sales totals are reduced by negative PLUs.
Report Type
An X report prints the totals for the period and does not reset any totals data.
Clearing (Z) reports, the totals are cleared and the relevant cvlearing date in the
security report is updated.
A Z report prints the X totals for the period and resets those totals.
NOTE: If the report printing fails for any reason and you abort the report printing,
the totals will be unchanged.
Configuring Reports
Reports can be printed on receipt rolls or labels. When printing to labels, the label
gaps are skipped so that no data is lost.
Report Setup
In report setup, you configure the way you want the report printed. The choices you
make apply to all the scales on the system. Your choices include the following:
PLU Totals Yes or No
If you do not require PLU totals from the scale, disabling them makes more
memory available for PLU storage at the scale.
Totals Reports
The following totals reports can be printed:
Grand Totals
Operator Totals
Promotion Totals
Department Totals
PLU Totals
Security Report
Machine Totals
Group Totals
Also, you can Clear All Totals.
Report Numbering
Each totals report has its own sequential number for security purposes. The
number is incremented each time you print a Z report.

Communications
This section describes how to set up a network, linking up to 10 compatible scales
in a store network.
The system will support any combination of SD scales having the same software
version.
Scales may be used for weighing or By Count PLUs in counter service or prepack
applications.
Setting Up a Network
Networked scales are connected using ethernet network cables. These cables
enable information to be passed between each connected scale.
One scale on the network is called the server and is responsible for overseeing
the network. The remaining scales are known as client scales. Any scale may be
programmed as the server.
All the scales on the network use the same PLU and system data. You can enter
data at any scale and the other scales on the network will receive the information
provided they are switched on.
The server must be switched on when the client scales are in operation. If a client
scale has been connected to the network but has not had the scale ID set up, it
will not be recognized by the server.
Network Compatibility
You can use DX50 back-office software to link an SD scale network to another SD
scale. Contact Hobart for more information.
Typical Ethernet Network
20 operators maximum
71
Operating Mode
The store network can consist of a mixture of label type SD scales.
Vendors may be logged on to more than one scale and ‘float’ between scales to
serve customers throughout the store.
Label issuing scales will print labels to be adhered to the package, each label will
typically contain a scannable bar code that can be recalled at the checkout.
Auto Configure
Auto configure can be used to quickly set up a network of scales that are
programmed with the factory default IP address and have been connected to an
ethernet hub. Call Hobart Service to do this.
Adding a Scale to the Network
You can add scales to the network up to the maximum allowed (10). When you
select “Auto Configure” at the new scale, it will automatically be assigned to the
next machine ID.
Updating the PLU File
You can perform a Network Dump from the server if the PLU file at the new client
scale does not match the server PLU file. Refer to Network Dump, page 77.
Each time the client scale uses a PLU, it retrieves the PLU data from the server
and the PLU file at the client scale is updated.
If you choose no to perform a network dump, the PLU file at the client will gradually
be updated to match the server file.

Setting Scale ID
The server uses scale identity to distinguish between individual scales on the
network. You can enter a value for the scale ID between 1 and 10. Then select
either Server or Client for the scale status. An S or C will be displayed on the
network map at the appropriate position.
NOTE: If you set the scale ID to 0 it will operate as a stand-alone scale.

Network Map
The network map at any scale shows the positions (scale ID) of all scales on the

At each position on the map corresponding to a scale you will see a character
indicating the scale status. The flashing character indicates the ID of the scale
currently being used to display the network map.
NOTE: You can only change the status of a scale at that scale. For instructions
for selecting client or server status, refer to Setting Scale ID, above.

Backup Server
You can change the status of any client machine to server (refer to Setting Scale
ID, page 73). If a server already exists on the network, the new server becomes
the backup server. If there is more than one server already set to server on the
system, the new server becomes the backup server and the old backup server
reverts to client status.
If the main server goes off line for any reason, the backup server takes over without
any loss of operation.
NOTE: You should not continue to trade for an extended period unless both the
main server and the backup server are switched on.
Should both servers go off line, you can choose to operate the client machines in
Local Mode (refer to Local Mode, page 76).
If audible warning is configured for the scale, you will hear a beep and the network
will display 0 at the position for the old server.
if there is a cable fault, both the main and backup server will beep and each
machine will show the other and the client scales as off-line.
Before setting a scale to server status, do the following:
Clear all transactions.
Clear all totals.
Clear the audit list completely.

position is off line.
Check the network map.
Check the network connections and
set the machine ID if necessary.
Incomplete
Error
The PLU file in the client machine
does not match the server PLU file.
Perform a Network Dump at the server
(refer to Network Dump, page 97.
Local Mode
The machine is in Local Mode.
To reinstate the client, refer to
Reinstating a Local Client, page 97.
No Server
Client machine is not
communicating with server
machine.
Check network cable.
Set machine to operate in Local Mode.
75
Local Mode
If you see the message “No Server” followed by “local Mode ?” when you try to
select a PLU, assign transactions or print a label, it means that the client cannot
operate on the network because there is a communications failure between that
client and the server.
Switching a Client to Local Mode
You can set the machine to operate independently of the network when it cannot
communicate with the server.
When you switch the client to Local Mode any transactions that have been entered
but not printed will be lost. You must reenter any incompleted transactions.
• Press
Enter
to switch the client to Local Mode.
• If you do not want the client to operate in Local Mode press any other key
just to clear the message.
Label Machines Only
• Press Clear to select the PLU and print one label. The message is repeated
the next time you select a PLU. There will be no totals for that label.
NOTE: If the server is faulty, you will see the message ‘No Server’ at the client
machine you are using.
If you see the message ‘Local Mode’ at the end of the start-up routine when you
switch on a scale, then that scale is operating in Local Mode.
If you see the message ‘Local Machine(s)’ at the end of the start-up routine when
you switch on the server, there is at least one client operating in Local Mode. Go
to the Network Map to check which scale it is.
Operating in Local Mode
If you use a client machine in Local Mode, you will not be able to store totals
because these are collected and stored by the server.
Audit Buffer
The audit buffer can operate in linear or circular mode.
Linear Mode
In linear mode, you cannot continue trading when the audit buffer is full. You will
see flashing warning messages “Audit 75% Full” and “Audit 90% Full” when the
number of transactions in memory approaches the maximum permitted.
Circular Mode
In circular mode, new audit transactions overwrite the oldest transactions.
Default Setting
The default buffer setting for client machines is linear. The transaction memory limit
is set at 20 receipts with up to eight transactions per receipt (160 transactions).
You can change the client buffer mode from linear to circular if required.
If you wish to reset the audit buffer size, contact Hobart.
76
Reinstating a Local Client
When the problem with the network has been resolved, the client machine
operating in local mode is automarically restored to the network as follows:
Connect the machine to the network (if it was disconnected).
The server detects the client in local mode and switches the client on line.
The server will then:
Transfer any outstanding live transactions from the client.
Transfer completed transactions to the server as a background task.
Update totals.
Network Dump
Network dump synchronises all data held at client machines with that of the
server.
When dumping data to client machines, the server copies the PLU file and all data
apart from the positions of programmed keys and assignments.
You will need to dump data to client machines if the following have occured:
The data was programmed at a server that is not connected to the network.
A new or replacement machine was linked onto the network.
You will not need to dump data if the following have occured:
The data was programmed at a server that is connected to the network and
all machines are switched on.
Amendments to the PLU data are made at any machine provided that all the
machines are switched on.

Advanced Setup
Machine IP Address
Each machine in a network must have a unique IP address. The IP address is used
by the TCP/IP protocol to identify the source and destination of data packets.
The machines are manufactured with unique IP addresses which only need to
be changed if the SD scale network is to be integrated with an existing Ethernet
network.
The IP address of the scale consists of two parts:
The network address which must be the same as all the other machines on
the same network.
The machine address which must be different from other machines on the
same network.
The network address depends on which sub-net mask is used, for example for an
IP address of 88.1.1.7:
Sub-net mask
255.0.0.0
255.255.0.0
255.255.255.0
Network address
88.0.0.0
88.1.0.0
88.1.1.0
Machine address
88.1.1.7
88.1.1.7
88.1.1.7
Sub-net Mask
The sub-net mask allows you to split a large physical network into smaller logical
networks.
NOTE: If a machine is being added to an existing network and you need to change
the IP address and sub-net mask, the network address and sub-net maske must
match the existing network. For further information contact Hobart.
Host Name
This only applies to machines on networks with DHCP enabled. The host name
enables the machine to be identified even if the IP address has changed. The
name can have up to 100 characters in either a fixed or variable string. You can
include the following codes in the string:
%%NTID or %%+8.2%%network ID (2two digits)
%%MCID or %%+8.1%%network ID (2two digits)
The default host name text is:
ITW.Hobart.GM.NetId.%%NTID.McId%%MCID
Gateway IP Address
Where SD series scales are linked to a PC through a gateway, the SD series scale
needs to know the gateway address in order to communicate with it.
78
Network ID
The machines are manufactured with a default network ID. You will need to
change it if more than one SD series network is required.
Up to 10 scales can be connected together on a single network. All the scales on
a single network must have the same network ID.
Up to 99 scale networks can be created but each group of machines must have a
network ID number that is different than any other group.
Base Port Number
The base port number is used with the network ID to generate a TCP/IP port
number for inter scale communications.
This port number is used by the scales in the network to communicate across the
network. If this port number is used by other equipment you may need to change
the base port number.
Host Port Number
This is the TCP/IP port number to communicate with a PC running DX50 software.
The SD scales need to know the port number for DX50 in order to be able to
communicate with the PC. The default value for the port number will not usually
need to be changed.
Ping IP Test
This function tests connections between the scale and other IP addresses.
Data Clone
You can use “data clone” to copy machine specific data, as well as system data,
from the server to a new or replacement scale on the network. The new scale
must use the same network ID.
Cloning transfers include the following:
System data.
Service configuration (not capacity).
Machine setup.
Dedicated keys.
79
Data Backup
This section describes how to back up and restore scale data.
It is recommended that you make a backup whenever you make any amendments,
otherwise the backup file be out of date.
Dumping or Loading Data
USB Backup
When setting up several stand-alone scales with the same PLUs and system
information, using a memory stick saves you from having to enter the data at each
machine. You can store backup files which can be loaded to a machine should
you ever experience problems.
Networked Scales
If you have a scale network that includes a host PC, you can back up and restore
scale data using DX50 Scale Support Tool. Contact Hobart for more information.
Dumping
The USB or data backup software tool receives data from the scale and stores a
copy in its own memory until you wish to use it. The original data is retained by
the scale.
Loading
The USB or data backup software tool sends data to the scale. The data held by
the scale is replaced or over written but is still retained by the USB or software
tool.
System Data
System data is comprised of the functions that need to be the same on all the
scales in a store. Where scales are part of a network, the system information will
be common to all the scales.
When loading or dumping system information from the scale, the following data is
sent to or received from the USB or data backup software:
80
departments
tax rates
network ID
stored tares
operator numbers
barcode formats
store name
PLUs
sign on/off messages
ADD label
scroll messages
traceability data
label formats
logos
Machine Data
Machine data is comprised of those functions that are specific to each machine.
When loading or dumping scale setup information from the machine, the following
data is sent to or received from the USB or data backup software:
machine ID
label mode
key assignments
label type
key set-up
label detect
printer set-up
tare interlock
print modes
barcode assignments
trace code
custom menus
symbols
display contrast
PLU File
The PLU file can be dumped or loaded independently of the system file.
Label Formats
Label formats can be dumped or loaded independently of the system file.
If you want to keep a backup of a logo you must perform a ‘System Dump’. The
system file includes label format and logo data.
81
Help
This section contains information to help you if you encounter a problem while
using the scale.
Setup Mode
It is possible to inadvertently set all users security levels so that security levels can
no longer be modified and no user has access to any sales or manager functions.
This could happen, for example, if:
The manager’s security level was initially set to 2
All sales and manager functions were set to perhaps level 2
The manager changes his or her own security level to 1.
The manager can no longer use any function or change his/her own security
level.
If no user has a security level set to 9 the Super User function becomes available.
This function permits access to all functions regardless of the security level set,
provided the user knows the Super User PIN.
NOTE: If you do not know or cannot remember the Super User PIN, contact
Hobart.

APPENDIX
Substitution Codes
There are two types of substitution code supported by the software:
The Hobart code system.
This is a fixed system using the start code %% followed by a character
representing the associated data.
A Dewey Decimal based system.
The Dewey Decimal based system divides information into classes, divisions
and subdivisions to the number of levels needed to give the required amount
of detail. The number of levels supported by the software is four.
For each class, division etc. you can include a parameter to specify a
particular reference. In the table of codes, a parameter is indicated by the
characters #pp where pp is a numerical value.
Each code string requires the start characters %%+ and closing characters
%%. The closing characters are entered automatically when you finish
selecting the class and divisions you require.
For Example: To include the name of nutrient 21 from the nutrients list.
Dewey decimal code: %%+1.1#21.1%%
