1. Using Your Machine
About your Machine
The scale is intended to be custom programmed to suit the circumstances that you will be using it in
and that means that the display may appear different to that shown in these instructions. If you have
questions about custom features not covered here ask your manager or supervisor for further help.
Safety Warnings
Safe Installation
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.
CAUTION: The mains lead must be connected to a supply outlet with a protective earth contact. The
electrical supply at the socket outlet must provide over current protection of an appropriate rating.
Pluggable equipment must be installed near an easily accessible socket outlet. Permanently
connected equipment must have a readily accessible disconnect device incorporated in the fixed
wiring.
USA
If the scale is connected to a 240V supply, the receptacle must be protected by a 15 amp circuit
breaker.
Safe use
CAUTION: 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.
To avoid the risk of the machine falling, where applicable, ensure that it is placed securely on a flat
and level surface.
Take care when placing large, heavy produce such as water melons on the weigh plate so that they
do not roll off the machine.
Cleaning the machine
CAUTION: Harsh abrasives, solvents, scouring cleaners and alkaline cleaning solutions, such as washing soda, should
not be used especially on the display windows. Under no circumstances should you attempt to wipe the inside of the
machine.
The outside of standard products may be wiped down with a clean cloth moistened with water
containing a small amount of washing up liquid. The outside of products waterproofed to IP65, IP66
and IP67 may be washed down with water containing a small amount of a proprietary detergent.
Touch Screen Cleaning
When cleaning the touch screen use the Clean Screen function to avoid problems such as
transactions accidentally being performed during the clean or having to turn off the scale:
1.
Press the Sidebar button to the right of the screen. the sidebar menu should open.
2.
Press User Functions.
3.
Press Clean Screen. The screen will go white and the touch function will be disabled.
4.
Clean the screen.
5.
Shortly after you stop cleaning a countdown will be displayed. To interrupt the countdown
resume cleaning. Once the countdown reaches 0 the screen will return to normal.
Training
Do not attempt to operate or carry out any procedure on a machine or network unless you have
received the appropriate training or read the Instruction Books.
Ergonomics
To avoid the risk of RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) it is important to ensure that the machine is placed
on a surface which is ergonomically satisfactory to the user. It is recommended that frequent breaks
are taken during prolonged usage.
EMC compliance
The following warning may be applicable to your machine.
WARNING: This is a class A product. In a domestic environment this product may cause radio
interference in which case the user may be required to take adequate measures.
Levelling the Scale
The scale automatically compensates when it is not level.
If the scale is out of level by more than 5° the ValuMax indicator shows a red cross in the display
screen status bar. The on‐screen display shows the amount of adjustment needed in the X and Y
directions to level it exactly.
The scale has four levelling feet to enable manual levelling up to 10mm in any direction.
Any angle up to 5° is considered to be level. Any angle above 5° out of level automatically displays
the Level Scale screen and you will not be able to trade until it is correct.

Using the Printer
Changing the Label Roll
Label rolls have a return spindle to hold the backing paper.
1.
Remove the print cassette by pulling the red handle until it clicks and then slide the cassette out
from the scale.
2.
Remove the old label roll core and backing paper. Check that the new label roll is of the right
type and size and insert the roll into the cassette.
3.
Peel off several labels so that you have a long section of backing paper. Feed the paper into the
slots of the spindle, then back around the spindle so that the paper is firmly trapped.
Note: The backing paper can be very slippery, so wind the paper around the spindle several times
before slotting the cassette back into place
The following diagram shows the full path of the label:
4.
Replace the cassette into the scale and push the red handle to lock the cassette into place.
Changing a Receipt Roll
Label rolls have a return spindle to hold the backing paper.
1.
Remove the print cassette by pulling the red handle until it clicks and then slide the cassette out
from the scale.
2.
Remove the old receipt roll core. Check that the receipt roll is of the right type and size and

2.
Remove the empty core and replace it with a full roll. The yellow label on the cassette shows the
route for the paper.
3.
Replace the cassette and turn the handle clockwise to lock.
2. Serving Customers
Searching for a PLU
All products have a unique PLU (Product Look Up) number associated with them. PLUs provide a fast
way to recall product data for regular product lines.
There are four ways to select the PLU you want:
1.
Select the product from the touchscreen.
2.
Use the fixed numeric keys to enter the PLU number.
3.
Use the PLU search function.
4.
Scan the product barcode.
If the product you require is not displayed on the screen and you know the PLU number, you can
enter the PLU number from the fixed keypad.
If departments are set up for the system, you can enter the PLU number from the fixed keypad
provided it is in the department currently set on the scale.
Searching by PLU Number
1.
Press
2.
Enter the PLU Number. The product is now ready for use.
Searching by Description
1.
Press
2.
Type the description. The list of products is progressively filtered by your text. For example,
typing 'Gold' finds all products that start with: Gold and Golden.
Searching by Department
When you use the PLU search function to find a PLU, the products are listed by department. By
default, the currently selected department for trading is displayed. Use the left and right green
arrows at the top of the page change department.
Using a Barcode Scanner
If the scale has a barcode scanner, you can scan the product barcode to automatically select the PLU.
Barcode Scanning
In order to do barcode scanning, you must have a barcode scanner installed, and receipts and labels
configured to have barcodes printed on them.
Use the barcode scanner at the scale to read barcodes:
•
On products
•
On labels
•
On counter receipts: Barcodes are a convenient way to ensure that labels or counter receipts
printed in one section of the store are correctly added to the customer's receipt at the checkout.
Important: Check that the scale selects the correct PLU.
When the scanner successfully reads the barcode, it bleeps.
Scanning barcodes means:
•
You do not have to enter product numbers or select a PLU.
•
At a Point of Sale (PoS) scale or checkout, you can scan customer numbers from subtotal counter
receipts to add them to the sales total receipt.
•
With the subtotal displayed, you can scan the barcode on promotional vouchers to automatically
deduct the voucher value.
About Operating Modes
The scale can be set to operate in either Label or Receipt mode depending on the role that the
machine is to perform with the store. Both modes have a number of sub settings which determine
how the scale will operate. These settings can be adjusted by using the Print Mode Setup key which
appears on the Home Screen.
Label Mode
There are three parts to label mode:
Checkout Mode
Checkout mode sets whether the scale is used by:
Checkout No Float: A single operator who logs‐on at the start of their shift, and transactions are
automatically assigned to them. The operator cannot 'float' from one machine to another.
Checkout Disable: Multiple operators.
Operator Keys
This is usually used in conjunction with Checkout Mode ‐ Disabled, and sets whether no operator log‐
on is required, or whether each operator must log‐on, and transactions are assigned to them.
Print Mode
There are three options for this:
Print on Request: The label is printed when the print button is touched by the operator.
Print Immediate: The label is printed as soon as a steady weight is achieved without any intervention
from the operator.
Prepack: A label is printed automatically for the selected product each time the weight changes.
Operation in Label Mode

Button Style
For multiple level keyboards, this determines whether the scale returns to the
Home screen or back to the last keyboard shown after making a transaction.
Sets whether the button shows Text, Graphic or both.
If the style is set to Graphic Only but there is no graphic assigned, then the
button shows the text.
Touch Menus (Keyboards)
Touch menus define how the static keyboards are configured.
The Home keyboard configuration determines which top level keyboard each machine displays.
Home Keyboard Selection
There are two types of Home keyboard:
Bestseller Keyboards. Bestseller keyboards consist of one single keyboard of bestselling items.
Products are automatically added to and deleted from the bestseller keyboard according to the
number of transactions for each product. Factors such as the time period for recalculating bestseller
keys, and a weighting for achieving bestseller status controls which products are placed on the
bestseller keyboard and how long the product remains there. When a bestseller keyboard is
recalculated, products remaining on the keyboard retain their key position.
Static Keyboards. Static Keyboards and keyboard systems are wholly or partially defined manually.
The term Static Keyboard can be misleading as you can have a Static Keyboard that is populated with
one of more dynamic keys, which provides highly dynamic functionality, see Dynamic Keyboards.
There are two types of static keyboard:
•
Operator Keyboard. Operator keyboards only contain either operator buttons, or links to other
keyboards.
•
PLU Keyboard. PLU keyboards can contain any type of button, such as a product, bestseller key,
function key or operator key. PLU Keyboards can have both dynamic keys, which makes them into
Dynamic Keyboards, and Bestseller keys.
In addition to the Home Keyboard, you can edit the functionality of:
•
Morebar
•
User Functions
•
Dedicated Keys
To set the type of keyboard:
1.
Press
>
>
2.
Select 2: Keyboard, then 6: Keyboard System.
3.
Select the required keyboard type. The scale automatically saves the changes. and the menu
changes to Network Setup.
4.
Press
twice.
To set the main keyboards:
1.
Press
>
>
2.
Select 1: Keyboards.
Touch Screen Calibration
We recommend that you occasionally calibrate the screen to avoid making mistakes when selecting
items.
1.
Press
2.
Press and hold the flashing circle for a few seconds until it moves to the next position, repeat until
all nine points are set.
>
>
Note: While the machine starts up, you also have the option to calibrate the touch screen.
Print Formats
This sets the SubTotal Receipt Format.
Subtotal receipts are customer receipts which can be printed for later recall using the customer
number which is printed on the receipt. The data printed on the subtotal receipt is determined by
the Subtotal Receipt Format.
There are two settings available:
Subtotal Summary ‐ Prints a short summary containing just the data essential to re‐open the receipt.
Subtotal Itemised ‐ Prints an itemised receipt detailing all the transactions.
Date Configuration
There is one option for Print Formats: Late Pack Hour:
1
Late Pack
Hour
If an item is packed late at night, this setting allows an extra day to be added
to the use‐by date. For example, if a bakery item is packed at 23:00, the use‐
by date can be set an extra day ahead in order not to waste a day when the
item is packed very late.
Setting the Date and Time
The scale has an internal clock that stores the date and time, which is printed on labels and reports.
The scale also calculates sell‐by dates, see Date 1 & 2 Offsets in Create/Edit Products.
When you set the date and time on the server scale, any client scales synchronises to it.

7
Talon Barcode Format
These two fields configure the print format for the receipt. The default
settings is for a fully itemised receipt with no barcode. You can choose
to have either a fully itemised or a summary receipt, with or without
barcode printing.
A talon is a receipt slip showing the price to pay and an optional
barcode. It is typically used when an order is placed and the customer
has to return at a later time or date to collect it. A talon matches the
customer order to the goods to be collected.
In sales mode, when talon printing is enabled, the talon is printed after
the receipt, after a two‐second delay, to allow the operator time to
tear off the receipt. If the receipt has not been torn off after the two‐
second delay, the operator is prompted to do so.
Barcodes ‐ Configuring Labels and Receipts
Adding Barcodes to Labels
There are two configuration settings that determine whether labels are printed with a barcode:
If both the Machine Setting is set to None and the Product > Barcode Format is set to None, then
the label does not have a barcode.
If the Machine Setting is set to a barcode format and the PLU Barcode format is set to None, the
label has the machine setting barcode.
If the Machine Setting is set to a barcode format and the PLU Barcode format is set to a different
barcode format, the label has the PLU setting barcode. That is, the PLU setting overrides the machine
setting.
Adding Barcodes to Total Receipts
The PLU Barcode format is ignored when printing receipts. Barcodes are only printed on receipts if a
Receipt barcode format has been selected and Receipt Barcode On is set to yes.

Dynamic Keyboards
The term dynamic keyboard means a static keyboard that is populated with one or more dynamic
keys.
At its simplest, a dynamic keyboard can consist of a single keyboard, and a single dynamic keyboard
link key. for example, a typical keyboard system for a scale serving fruit can be structured as follows:
Prerequisites
You may need to add or edit the following:
•

To create a Dynamic Keyboard
Either create a new PLU Keyboard that has a single Dynamic Key, or edit an existing PLU Keyboard.
When you go to operator mode, the home screen is automatically populated with the sub groups:
When you select a group, the keyboard is automatically populated with all the products within that
group. In addition, if there are more products in the group that can be shown on one screen, the
dynamic keyboard automatically adds a Next (and Previous) key:
Dedicated Keys
The Dedicated Keys are the ones underneath the Home keyboard. If there are several keyboard
designs, you can set which one is used.

Bestseller Keyboards
Bestseller keyboards consist of one single keyboard of bestselling items. There is only one bestseller
product keyboard on the scale.
Products are automatically added to and deleted from the bestseller keyboard according to the
number of transactions for each product. Factors such as the time period for recalculating bestseller
keys, and a weighting for achieving bestseller status controls which products are placed on the
bestseller keyboard and how long the product remains there. When a bestseller keyboard is
recalculated, products remaining on the keyboard retain their key position.
If you need to change the design of the bestseller keyboards, you must change the scale setting so
that it is set to a static keyboards, change the design or layout, then change the scale back to
bestseller keyboards.
You can add Bestseller keys to the home screen and Dynamic Menus to link to products representing
in a particular group or department. The advantage with this approach is that all your keyboards are
automatically populated with the bestselling products. You are more likely to find the right product
in a shorter amount of time, and no manual maintenance of the keyboard is required.
The options for a bestseller keyboard are: how many products to display, the day and time to update
the keyboard and how often to update it.

To give recently traded products the highest significance by ageing
older bestsellers, bestseller quantities are reduced every time the

bestseller quantities are reduced.
100% causes the quantities to be cleared. 0% disables the process.

Wireless Networks
The scale can be connected through a network wireless adapter to either a computer or one or more
other scales. The scale supports the following wireless adaptors:
•
3COM 3CRUSBN275
•
Edimax EW‐7711UAn
•
Edimax EW‐7612UAn V2
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.
Before setting up an in‐store network or connecting to, obtain the appropriate IP addresses from the
store IT administrator. Enter the addresses at the machines before connecting to the network.

The static IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the scale consists of
two parts, the network address and the machine address.
The network address must be the same as all the other machines on the
same network.
The machine address must be different from the other machines on the
same network.
Note: If a wireless adaptor is present, the wireless IP address is shown in
preference on the taskbar.
The subnet mask identifies which part of the IP Address is the network
Address, and which part is the machine address.
For example:
The subnet mask 255.255.0.0 sets the network address part as the first
two sets of numbers of the IP address, which makes the last two sets of
numbers the machine address.
If the subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0, then the first three sets of
numbers are the network address, and the last set is the machine
address.
A gateway enables networks using different protocols to communicate.

DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. If the network infrastructure has a
server that dynamically allocates IP addresses (DHCP server), then set
this to enabled, otherwise, set to disabled for a static IP address.
If this is set to enabled, you must give the scale a computer name. The
computer name is shown on the taskbar.
Note: If DCHP is enabled, then the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway
are set to 0.

Load Configuration File
This loads the wpa_supplicant.conf from the root of a memory stick and stored on the machine. The
basic setup security mode is set to 'Loaded Config File' so there is no need for the user to do this
separately.
The wpa_supplicant.conf file contains the wireless settings in the format recognised by the standard
wpa supplicant program. This allows connection to wireless networks using a RADIUS authentication
server.

Network ID is the equivalent of the Peer ID, but for Server Client networks. It
identifies which machines are in the same logical network. For example, a large

department with smaller counters. All machines are physically connected on the
Ethernet network but only the machines with a matching network ID connect to
each other as a server client network.
Sets the type of machine:
Standalone Scale: There is no ISC (Inter Scale Communications). Host

Networking ‐ ISC Machine Type
The machine network system in a store can consist of a mixture of label and receipt machines. The
system supports any combination of machines in the XM and XT ranges (If they have the same
software version).
Scale networks can be connected in a wired or wireless ethernet setup. Scales can be set up as:
Stand‐Alone: Each scale is independent. Communication is only possible to a back office system.
Server/Client: One or more client scales receives its data from a server scale. The number of clients
that can be supported on a network depends on server performance.
A back office host can communicate with the server which will then communicate with the clients.
Scales set up in such a way can share resources and information (operators, PLUs, and so on). Local
price and product updates can be made at any of the scales. Floating vendor is possible, whereby an
operator moves from one scale to another, picking up live transactions from a particular customer at
the scale they have moved to.
Multi‐Server: Each scale is configured as a server. If there is a back office software application this
communicates with all the scales.
Each scale holds its own product file and floating vendor is not possible.
Peer Group: Each scale is configured as a server in the same way as a multi‐server network but local
price and product updates can be made at any scale and communicated across the scales configured
within the same peer group.

To report on totals for all products per group. For example, sales value for all products in the Beef
Group.
2.
You can design a keyboard with the top level keyboard with just the Group keys, see Touch
Menus (Keyboards). For example, Fruit & Veg, Meats and so on. Each Group key is a link to
another keyboard with either a subgroup or all products in that group.

Mix and Match Offers
Mix and Match offers are a special type of promotion that applies when the customer purchases a
specified number of a combination of items. This type of offer is only applicable to non weighed
products that are sold with the machine in receipt mode.
The scale processes all items in the receipt and then allocates them to any active offers that will
result in a saving to the customer. The items are allocated to the offers in such a way as to give the
customer the best possible savings.
Products can have quantity break promotions and be part of a mix and match offer at the same time.
Provided the conditions for each promotion are met then both may be applicable.
An offer can be one of four types:‐
1.
Fixed Price – where all of the qualifying items are sold for a fixed price. The saving amount is the
total of all of the qualifying items less the fixed price.
2.
Money off – where the normal total sales value of all of the qualifying items is reduced by an
amount. The saving is the money off value.
3.
Discount – where the total of all of the qualifying items is discounted by a percentage value. The
saving amount is the total price – the discounted price.
4.
Free Gift – where the cheapest item in the gift list which is in the receipt and not already given
in another offer is given free. The saving value is the value of the free gift.
An offer becomes satisfied when the number of items sold in each of the qualifying lists matches the
purchase quantity. In the case of a free gift the offer only results in a saving if one of the items in the
gift list is included in the basket. If it is, it will be given free.
Notes:
•
An Item cannot be included in more than one qualifying group for the same offer.
•
Calculating offers is processor intensive and can effect the scales performance if a large number of
offers with a large number of qualifying items are active. To avoid performance problems keep the
number of live offers to a minimum. Offers that are currently not live can be disabled by linking to
a time period which in the past. In addition, limit the total number of qualifying items to less than
30 for the XT scale and less than 10 for the XM scale.
•
In multi operator mode the auto subtotal display can be disabled ensuring the offers are only
calculated once at payment time.
Product Lines and Offer Groups
Before setting up a mix and match offer you will need to create one or more Offer Groups. These are
lists of the products that are to be included in the offer. At least one and a maximum of 5 qualifying
product lines must be programmed for every Offer Group.
•
If an Offer Group has just one product the scale will operate in the same way as it does with
existing PLU based promotions. (non‐weighed offers only)
•
If multiple products have been added then the purchase quantity applies to each of the lines and
offer only applies when all of the qualifying lines are purchased. This type of offer is typically used
in meal deals.
•
Where an offer requires different number of items to be purchased for each list then the same
qualifying line can be used more than once. For instance, “buy 2 starters and a main course” can
be setup by setting the purchase quantity as 1 and assigning 2 starter product lines and 1 main
product line as the qualifying products.

Mix and Match Offer Rules
When multiple offers are in operation, calculating which combination provides the best value can be
complex. The scale operates the following frules for Mix and Match Offers:
•
Products can be programmed against multiple offers but once specific item has been used to
satisfy an offer then the same item will not be used to satisfy another offer. Items that can
potentially be used to satisfy more than one offer shall be used against the offer resulting in the
maximum customer saving.
For Example:
Melons are £1.20 each
Offer 1: 3 for 2 melon offer
Offer 2: Buy 2 melons for £2.00
Customer has 4 melons.
Allocating 3 melons to offer 1 would result in one free melon and a saving of £1.20
Allocating 2 melons to offer 2 would result in a saving of £0.40
Therefore 3 of the 4 melons will be allocated to offer 1 and 1 melon will be charged at £1.20
•
A free gift offer will always result in the cheapest item being given free.
•
PLU based offers using the existing promotions can apply at the same time as offer based

Departments
A department is a group of machines within the store that reflects the way the store operates, for
example Produce, Bakery, Fresh Meat, Fish. Each department has its own set of products.
Note: You cannot copy product PLUs from one department to another. However, you can copy a
department, which inherits all the products from the selected department.
Allocating products (PLUs) to the appropriate department:
•
Reduces the complexity of maintaining the PLU file.
•
Helps to reduce errors when selecting a PLU.

If you create a PLU keyboard that has buttons that reference the
department, then the media is shown on the button.
You can add media via USB memory stick.
Groups
Groups are a way to categorise products, for example, red meat, fish or bread.
Groups have two purposes:
To report on totals for all products per group. For example, sales value for all products in the Beef
Group.
You can design a keyboard with the top level keyboard with just the Group keys, see Touch Menus
(Keyboards). For example, Fruit & Veg, Meats and so on. Each Group key is a link to another keyboard
with either a subgroup or all products in that group.
For example. Meat > Beef > Sirloin Steak.
Prerequisites
If your group is to have adverts, then it is advisable to load the media first, especially if the group is
to be used as a template for other groups (see Copying a Group).

Trace Records
Many countries require that all livestock is accounted for from farm to abattoir to point of sale. Each
product can be set to the appropriate trace scheme.
>
Operators create the trace records when they scan the data from a barcode on a pack, or by
manually entering the required data. They can also be managed from a back office system, which
normally creates the required records and deletes old records that are no longer required.
Delete
The delete buttons allow managers to delete old records from the scale to free up space in case the
back office system goes down.

Media Configuration File
This is an optional medial configuration file that can be supplied on the memory stick with the
media. The media configuration file must be in a top‐level (root) media_update folder of the USB
memory stick, and have the filename: mediaconfig.xml.
The media configuration file is mandatory for text adverts as the advert text is specified inside the
media configuration file.
An idle time playlist and a product playlist with picture and text adverts:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf‐8"?>
<!‐‐ This configuration file generates a idle time playlist and a product playlist with picture and
text adverts‐‐>
<Advertising>
<Playlist Type = "idle">
<Image Description = "Description for advert one" Duration = "5" File = "filename‐1.jpg" />
<Image Description = "Description for advert two" Duration = "5" File = "filename‐2.jpg" />
<Text Description = "Description for advert three" Duration = "10" Caption = "10% off Pork
Chops"
DateStart = "2014‐04‐17 00:00:00" DateEnd = "2014‐04‐28 00:00:00" BackgroundColour = "0"
TextColour = "16777215" FontSize = "24" FontBold = "Yes" FontItalics = "Yes"
FontUnderline = "Yes" Animation = "RightToLeft" Speed = "Slow" />
</ Playlist >
<Playlist Type = "product">
<Image Description = "Description for advert three" File = "filename‐3.jpg" />
<Image Description = "Description for advert four" File = "filename‐4.jpg" />
</ Playlist >
</Advertising>
The media configuration file is optional for image and video adverts when loaded via USB memory
stick. If the media configuration file is not present then a single idle time playlist are generated with
all the advert settings at default values. The type of advert are determined from the physical media
file extension and the order are sorted alphabetically from the name of the file, uppercase
characters first (A‐Z then a‐z).
A single idle time playlist showing each advert for 5 seconds:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf‐8"?>
<!‐‐ This configuration file generates a single idle time playlist showing each advert for 5
seconds ‐‐>
<Advertising>
<Playlist Type = "idle">
<Image Description = "Description for advert one" Duration = "5" File = "filename‐1.jpg" />
<Image Description = "Description for advert two" Duration = "5" File = "filename‐2.jpg" />
</ Playlist >
</Advertising>
If a media configuration file is present then the order in which the adverts are played is determined
by the order in which they are defined in the playlist.
Media may be referenced by more than one advert which may be associated with more than one
playlist.
A media configuration file without any play lists results in all existing play lists and associated media
to be deleted from the scale.
If a media configuration file can contain a playlist ID and the machines that will use the playlist can
be specified. Adverts can also be allocated to a PLU.
A playlist specifying which scales should display the media:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf‐8"?>
<Advertising>
<Playlist Type = "Idle" Id = "5"> The playlist id can be optionally specified
<Machine Id = "1"/> The machine(s) to which this playlist should be allocated
<Machine Id = "3"/>
<Image Description = "MMM01" Duration = "10" File = "mmm01f.jpg" />
<Image Description = "MMM02" Duration = "10" File = "mmm02f.jpg" />
<Image Description = "MMM03" Duration = "10" File = "mmm03f.jpg" />
<Image Description = "MMM04" Duration = "10" File = "mmm04f.jpg" />
