2.4 Getting started
Getting started
Before operating your machine make sure that it has been
programmed with the required functions.
Using the documentation
This book includes all the functions available across the
complete range of IX machines. This means that some of the
functions described may not be available at your machine.
You should ignore those sections which do not apply.
IX110 and IX212 are receipt only machines and label
functions are not available on these machines.
Quick start
If you are impatient to try out your machine, read the ‘Quick
User Guide’ supplied with the machine and just program the
minimum amount of information needed to use your IX
machine. The Manager Menus supplied with the machine will
help you to navigate the software.
Connections/switch positions
Note:
Take care not to trap any cables under the feet, or the ribs in
the base of the machine, as this could cause weighing
inaccuracies and damage to the cables.

Mains power supply
Voltage selection
The machine is designed to operate at either 110V or 220V.
Check that the voltage selector in the base of the machine is
set to the correct value for your mains power supply voltage
before switching on the machine.
To select the alternative voltage, use a screwdriver to turn the
selector to the other position, see Figure 2.4, Connections and
switches, page 21.
The mains plug must be inserted into a socket outlet with a
protective earth contact. The electrical supply at the socket
outlet must provide over current protection of an appropriate
rating.
Replacing the fuse
WARNING: To avoid the possibility of electric shock or
damage to the machine, always switch off the machine and
isolate from the power supply before carrying out any
routine maintenance.
The fuse holder holds a safety fuse which you can replace if it
has blown. Depending on the power supply to the machine, the
fuse is:
either
0.5A ‘T’ type slow blow, 5 x 20mm for 220V input voltage
or
1.0A ‘T’ type slow blow, 5 x 20mm for 110V input voltage
Caution: You must use the same type of fuse. If in doubt
contact your Avery Berkel centre

Battery backup
Your machine has an internal battery to provide short term
protection in the event of a power supply failure. The
changeover to battery power supply is completely automatic
provided that the internal battery switch on the underside
of the machine is set to On.The battery backup allows you
time to complete transactions, collect totals etc. if the power
supply to the machine fails. The internal battery has a
separate On/Off switch on the underside of the machine (see
Figure 2.4, Connections and switches).
This switch should be ON at all times while the machine is
connected to the mains power supply.
If the machine is not connected to a mains power supply the
battery switch must be OFF.
Power saving
When the machine is operating on battery power the display
backlight is activated by any keypress or the application of
any load on the weighplate and remains on for 30 seconds.
Recovery time
A completely discharged battery will need 24 hours with the
scale connected to the mains power supply to fully recover its
charge.
External battery
Machines powered from an external battery can only be
switched on by connecting the battery using the battery
cable supplied.
Disconnect the battery to switch off the machine.
The display backlight is activated by any keypress or the
application of any load on the weighplate and remains on for
30 seconds.

Creating messages
You can create four different types of messages:
O
sign on and sign off text
O
store name
O
group names
O
sales message (not IX110 and IX212 models)
For information on creating and editing text
see Section 3.1 - Creating and editing text, page 33.
For information on creating group names
see Section 3.3 - Creating product groups, page 37.
Sign on/off text
These are messages that appear at the top (sign on) or at the
bottom (sign off) of a customer receipt. You can use these
messages for whatever information you choose to enter. For
example, it could be an advertising slogan or the company
name and address. If you incude the substitution code for a
sales message (%%Rxx) you can have different sign on or off
messages at each machine.
Store name
The store name can be printed at the bottom of the receipt or
at the bottom of the label provided that a suitable label format
is selected.
Machine based messages can be included in the store name
by including substitution code %%M in the store name text.
Group name
The grop name is printed on PLU and group reports. It
enables you to group products in categories such as fish,
fresh meat or vegetables, tax rates.

Sales message
A sales message is a message that you can assign to a PLU
and will be printed on labels. The position of the message
depends on the label format selected for the machine.
Each label format can have up to two sales message fields.
You can create up to 20 sales messages and each message
can contain up to 200 characters. You can include
substitution codes in the text message for printing sales
information as follows:
%%D
prints the current date
%%Z1
prints the time in the format 12:59
%%Z2
prints the time in the format 1259
%%Z3
prints the time in the format 125
%%RXX
prints the sales message number XX.
You could use this to insert text that you wish to
appear in all PLU texts.
%%V1
prints the current operator number.
%%V2
prints the current operator name.
%%M
prints the sales message at machines associated
with that message.
Date code
Use the date code %%DC to print the date as the number of
days from the start of the current year (01 January). You can
set an offset (999,999 max.) to add a chosen number of days
to the calculation.
%%DC would print the date 01/02/02 as 32
%%DC+10 would print the date 01/02/02 as 42
%%DC would print the date 31/12/02 as 365

Tax rate
You can program each PLU with a tax reference. There are
three tax references available (1-3) and each one can be
assigned a different tax rate. Use tax reference 0 for products
which are non taxable.
Depending on how your machine has been configured for
printing tax on receipts, the total tax value and the individual
tax rate values may be printed on the receipt.
You can print individual tax rates however your machine is
configured if you assign
Tax
Print
to the sales mode keyboard,
see Section 5.2 - Dedicated keys, page 78.
If the machine has been set up to calculate tax exclusively,
the value of the transaction is displayed excluding the tax.
The tax is added to the receipt subtotal as a separate item
when the receipt is printed.
Please remember .....
Tax rates are entered as a percentage. Remember to enter
the digits after the decimal point, for example enter 10% as
10.00.
Tare weight (stored tare)
If goods are to be weighed in containers, you can set up tare
values (container weights) which are stored against a
reference number from 0 to 9
You can enter a tare reference number when programming
PLUs or when assigning a preset tare key.
Programmed (stored) tares are only available for use when
the machine is set to pre-pack mode.

Barcodes
Barcodes are used to identify specific characteristics about
the product; for example, price, quantity, article number.
The machine displays fixed barcode formats as a series of
numbers and letters. Each number and letter represents a
digit in the barcode. By re-arranging these groups of digits
you can re-define how information is printed on the barcode.
You can select one of the barcode types for labels, receipts
and talons or you can switch off the barcode (see Section 5.4
- Assigning a barcode format, page 72).
You can create and store up to 7 barcode formats.
The barcode types available are:
EAN 13
EAN13 Scandinavian
EAN8
UPC12
GS1 - 14
GS1 Limited
UPC13
Each type of barcode has been programmed into the machine
as a standard format for the barcode digits (see 9.6, Barcode
formats, page 164). This is known as the default format. The
barcode formats can be re-defined to enable a source marked
barcode or dry article barcode to be printed.
Create the barcodes before you create PLUs.
Label machines
Barcodes will not be printed unless you assign a default
barcode format to the machine or enable the barcode in a

Price embedded barcode
Use this type of barcode on labels for products such as fresh
meat or fish that are priced or weighed and priced in the store
pre-pack area.
To create the product (PLU) file:
O
create a suitable barcode format for use with in-store, prepriced goods. The recommended format is:
02AAAAVPPPPPC.
Do this before you create the PLU. Refer to Creating a
barcode reference, page 162.
O
Create a weighed or nonweighed PLU.
O
Enter a label format that supports barcodes.
O
Program the unit or item price.
O
Enter any other product information you want to include in

O
Enter the barcode format reference.
O
Enter the product number.
Note:
You can only enter the product number in the designated
article number positions (A) in the barcode
Print the barcode labels and attach to the goods.
In sales mode, when you scan the price embedded barcode,
weighed goods are treated as a nonweighed item. The
receipt shows the description programmed in the PLU and the
price embedded in the in-store barcode.

Scanner operation
When the barcode is scanned, the machine searches the
barcode list for a prefix that matches the one in the scanned
barcode. If it fails to find a matching barcode it treats the
barcode as a dry article barcode.
You can only use the scanner if an appropriate barcode is
displayed on the goods. Branded goods have the barcode
printed on the packaging by the manufacturer. The barcode is
registered with the EAN authority and is known as a source
marked barcode.
If you wish to scan in-store goods you must print a suitable
barcode and attach it to the product being sold.
The barcode format can either be the one assigned to the
machine or the barcode format programmed in the PLU. The
machine will use a PLU barcode if programmed rather than
the one assigned to the machine.
Either
O
assign any barcode reference to the machine and
program the required label barcode in the PLU.
Programming the barcode in the PLU is the preferred
method as it is the safest
or
O
assign the required barcode reference to the machine and
program the PLU barcode reference to 0.
Remember to:
O
check that the machine selects the correct PLU when you
scan a source marked (branded) barcode
O
check that the machine prints the correct barcode when
you create an in-store barcode.
O
assign a barcode reference to the machine to enable
barcode printing.

Defining the barcode format
You can define and store up to five barcode formats.
Barcodes are printed as a series of bars and digits on receipts
and labels. Barcode digits are arranged in groups or fields.
Each group of digits conveys specific information, as shown in
the examples in Figure 9.1, page 160.
The barcode formats can be re-defined to enable a source
marked barcode or dry article barcode to be printed.
If you define the barcode incorrectly you will briefly see the
message Invalid Entry followed by the barcode 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 barcode will flash.
Press

10.1 Overview
Product Traceability
The product traceability scheme is primarily used to track single
and multiple bovine carcasses. These instructions describe
how to set up and use the scheme for this type of product. You
can also use the scheme for other types of product, changing
the data names and programming text to suit the product.
10.1
Overview
In markets where it is required, carcass tracking enables you to
label products with information about the animal or group of
animals (batch) from which the product was derived. The
following information is mandatory.
O
lot number (more than one animal) or carcass number.
O
slaughter house reference and country.
O
cutting/de-boning centre reference and country.
O
country of birth.
O
country of rearing.
In addition, approved voluntary information may be included on
labels and receipts.
Carcass tracking operates in pre-pack, counter and receipt
modes.
Please remember .....
If the product is pre-packed (packed when the customer is not
present) the carcass information must be printed on the
product label or receipt.
If the pack is prepared in the presence of the customer, there
must be a clear link between the product being served and the
displayed carcass details. The best way to ensure this is by
individually labelling each pack, or by printing the full details on
the counter or ECR receipt.
IX User Instructions
171
10.2 Operation
10.2
10 Product Traceability
Operation
A database of countries, categories etc is held by the machine.
This database is then referenced for each specific carcass/lot
number and the details printed on the label or receipt.
You can:
O
print carcass data on labels or receipts for all products
associated with a particular carcass.
O
print counter service tray labels providing full traceability
information for the customer.
The full carcass or batch details are scanned or entered from
the sales keyboard each time the operator selects a different
batch at the machine.
This is particularly suitable for prepack mode where the
operator may be packing a complete batch in one session and
then selecting a new complete batch to pack.
Carcass information is normally printed in text area 3. You can
print any of the data in other text fields provided you embed the
appropriate %% codes.
You must select a suitable label format or the data will not be
printed.
When programming PLUs you must select Carcass On to be
able to use carcass tracking for that product.
Listed below are the operations you need to perform to enable
carcass information to be printed on labels.

Defining the barcodes
There are two types of barcode used with bovine traceability.
O
EAN128 standard. These barcodes include the
mandatory information and use Application Identifiers
(AIs) to determine how the data is interpreted.
This type of barcode cannot be edited.
O
EAN128 non-standard barcodes. These barcodes use
Application Identifiers (AIs) but include voluntary
information in addition to the mandatory information
(custom barcode).
This type of barcode can be edited to match those of your
supplier.

10.5 Setting up the machine
Each type of barcode has been programmed into the machine
as a standard format for the barcode digits. This is known as
the default format. You can edit these formats to match the
barcode formats received from your suppliers.
Custom barcodes
Use this barcode format to interpret data from non standard AI
barcodes received from the supplier. The system uses the AI
(950) to identify that the barcode contains voluntary data and AI
(953) the licence number to print this data.
The default barcode format is:

The machine contains tables relating the carcass code
embedded in the carcass panel format to the data name.
Data names are the text descriptions associated with the
carcass codes. The machine is pre-programmed with industry
standard codes. You can change these if necessary to suit the
the products for which you are using the system.
For example:

Management Totals
Totals are updated whenever a label or receipt has been
printed successfully.
If there is no data for a particular field then that field is not
printed on the report. For example, if you are printing a Grand
or Operator report and no voids have been registered then the
Void Value and Void Count lines are not printed.
Sales values show actual turnover and sales totals are not
reduced by refunds or returns. Negative PLUs do reduce
sales totals.
When printing reports, if you request a non clearing (X) report,
the totals for that category are carried forward. If you request
a clearing (Z) report, the totals are cleared and the relevant
clearing date in the security report is updated.
An X report prints the totals for the period and does not reset
any totals data.
A Z report prints the X totals for the period and then resets
those totals.
If the report printing fails for any reason or you abort the
report printing, the totals will be unchanged.
Configuring reports
You can print reports on receipt rolls or labels. When printing
to labels, the label gaps are skipped so that you do not lose
any data.

Grand totals report
A Grand total consolidates data from PLU, Operator,
Machine, Group and Discount reports for each machine on
the system and prints a report of the total sales. It also
provides a tax breakdown for the entire system.
You can select either X or Z totals to print. If you select the Z
total, the totals are cleared. If you select the X total, the totals
are carried forward and are not cleared.

Introducing networking
You can link up to nine compatible machines in a network.
The machines are connected using network cables These
cables enable information to be passed between each
connected machine.
The system will support any combination of machines in the
IX series range provided they have the same software
version. The machines may be used for weighing or
nonweighing applications in counter service, checkout or rear
of store operations.
One machine on the network is called the server and is
responsible for overseeing the network. The remaining
machines are known as client machines. Any machine may
be programmed as the server.
All the machines on the network use the same PLU and
system data. You can enter data at any machine and the
other machines on the network will receive the information
provided they are switched on.
The server must be switched on when the client machines are
in operation. If a client machine has been connected to the
network but not had the machine ID set up it will not be
recognised by the server.

Reinstating a local client
When the problem with the network has been resolved the
client machine operating in local mode is automatically
restored to the network.
Connect the machine to the network (if it has been
disconnected).
The server detects the client in local mode and switches the
client on-line. The server will then:

The Printer
This is a label/receipt printer which will accept label or
continuous paper rolls with two core diameters.
The printer is fitted with a small spindle to take paper or label
rolls with the small core and has a larger sleeve which clips
over the small spindle for use with large core paper and label
rolls.
Make sure that the correct size of spindle is fitted before
loading the paper or label roll.
Check that the arrow on the spindle points towards the
machine.
CAUTION:
Should labels become stuck in the printer, under no
circumstances use a metal object to clear the jam.
Under no circumstances use sharp or metal objects to
remove any accumulated debris
CAUTION:
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 Avery Berkel centre.
The message Out Of Paper appears on the display to warn
you that the printer roll is nearly finished or labels are jamming

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:
O
manager's security level initially set to 2
O
all sales and manager functions set to perhaps level 2
O
manager changes 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 2 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
