Getting Started
Setting up your cash register consists of the following steps:
•
Plugging in and Putting in the Batteries
•
Installing the Paper Roll
•
Setting the Date And Time
•
Programming the Sales Tax
•
Setting at least 2 Department Keys
Do all the steps to make sure you have your cash register set up correctly.
When you are done with this chapter, see the chapter called Getting To
Know the Cash Register, starting on page 10 and the chapter called
Setting Up Your Cash Register - the Basics, starting on page 19 for more
information about your cash register.
Plugging in and Putting in the Batteries
Your cash register needs 3 AA 1.5 volt batteries for the memory backup
system. These batteries did not come with your cash register and you must
purchase them additionally. You should purchase these batteries before
you start this section or as soon as possible after setting up the cash
register.
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
Chapter 2: Getting Started
Make sure that you plug the cash register into the electrical outlet before
you put in the batteries.
Caution
If you put the batteries in first, they can damage the cash register.
Do not use this cash register outdoors in the rain or near any source of
liquid.
To get the cash register ready to use
1 Remove the cash register and the parts from the box. Store the box and
packing material in a safe, dry place. If you need to move the register in
the future, you can put it back in the box.
2 Remove the tape holding the parts of the cash register in place. For
example, there may be tape on the Journal Compartment Cover. Make
sure you remove the tape on the black Journal Tape spindle inside the
printer compartment of the cash register.
3 Put the register on a hard, level surface, away from rain and spilled
drinks. A hard level surface makes it easier for the cash drawer to go in
and out smoothly.
Do not put the register on a porous surface. Depending on the surface or
any cleaning solution used on the surface, the rubber feet may leave
marks on the surface. Do not place the register on any valuable surface,
such as antique or fine wood tables, desks, and so on.
4 Plug the cash register into a standard three-hole electrical wall outlet.
(115-120 volt, 60 hertz). Make sure the electrical cord is not going to get
tripped over or accidentally pulled from the electrical outlet.
Put the cash register on an electrical circuit with no other electrical
device or appliance. Other appliances can overload the circuit or cause
electrical interference with the cash register. It is best that you use a
circuit without other appliances already on it.
5 Install the memory backup batteries.
• Open the Journal Compartment cover. Remove
the cover and put it aside.
• Move the paper roller bar up and out of the way.
Grab the small handle on the right of the print
roller bar. Push the little handle towards the
back of the cash register and raise the paper
roller bar up. You see a slope down to the paper
compartment. The battery cover is located under the print roller bar,
on the slope.
• Remove the battery cover. Press the edge at the top of the cover and
push to the back. The cover pops off.

Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
Installing the Paper Roll
• Put the batteries in the slots. Make
sure that the positive and negative
ends are in the right place. The
batteries have a little plus (positive)
and minus (negative) sign on each end
to help you.
• Replace the battery cover. Slide the
bottom tabs into the long slit in the
bottom position and it snap the cover
into place. Do not put the tabs in the 2
holes in the bottom of the
compartment. The cover will not close and you will break the tabs.
6 Now you are ready to put the paper in the cash register and set the time
and the date. See the next section for more information.
Installing the Paper Roll
Your cash register has a thermal printer that prints receipts for the
customer or a journal tape. Use 2¼ inch (57.5 mm) wide standard thermal
register paper.
To install the paper roll
1 Insert the PRG key and turn it to either REG1 or REG2.
• If you need a customer receipt, turn the Mode key to the REG1
position.
• If you do not need a customer receipt, turn the mode key to the REG2
position.
2 Unlock and open the Journal Compartment Cover. Grip the left side of
the cover and gently pull upward. Remove the Journal Compartment
Cover and set aside.
3 Remove the Journal
Takeup spindle. Place
the paper roll in the
little round area at the
bottom of the
compartment. Make
sure the paper feeds
out from the bottom
of the roll, towards
the front of the cash
register.

register and raise the roller bar up.
Handle
5 Lay the end of the paper across the
printer as shown. Move the print
roller down onto the paper and
snap into place. Make sure both
sides are snapped down.
• Press the Feed key until the paper
catches and moves through the printer.
6 Do one of the following:
• If you do not need to print receipts:
Place the black plastic Journal Takeup
spindle on its grooves above the Battery
compartment. The spindle sits above the
paper roll. Press the Feed key to move
the paper through the printer about
10-12 inches. Push the paper through
one of the narrow openings in the center
of the Journal Takeup spindle. Press the
Feed key until the paper catches and
begins to wind securely around the
Journal Takeup spindle. Replace the Journal Compartment Cover.
• If you want to print receipts:
Lay the customer receipt paper over the receipt slot and close the
Journal Compartment Cover.
Installing the Barcode Reader
Your cash register comes with a barcode reader. It allows you to scan
items with a UPC symbols, instead of using the keyboard to type the PLU
number.
The barcode reader plugs into the port on the lower right side of the cash
register. Use the directions below to install it.
To install and program the barcode reader
1 Unpack the reader from the box.
2 Turn the Mode key to OFF.
6
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
PC-Based Software
3 Locate the port for the scanner on the lower
right side of the cash register. Plug the reader
into the port.
4 Now you can program the barcode reader so
that you can scan UPC symbols to ring up
items. For specifics, see Programming PLUs with the Barcode Reader on
page 52.
PC-Based Software
Your cash register includes:
•
RegisterLink PC-based software. This software allows you to connect the
cash register to your PC to download your sales information and transfer
it to QuickBooks® 2002 or Peachtree® accounting software. For
instructions about using the software, see the RegisterLink manual.
Using the RegisterLink software requires connecting your computer to the
cash register, using the serial port. To connect your computer to the serial
port, you need a null-modem serial cable that is not included. You can
purchase this cable at any computer supply store. For technical details
about the serial connection, see About the Serial Port on page 87.
Setting the Date And Time
The date changes every day and prints in the month-day-year format. You
can prevent the date from printing on the transaction receipts. The date
format can also be changed to print day-month-year. For more
information, see Programming Flag Options on page 59.
You can set the cash register so that it does not print the time on receipts.
For more information, see Programming Flag Options on page 59.
The time can print in either the 12 or 24 hour (military time) format. The
default setting is to print in the 12 hour format, which is normally used. To
change to the 24 hour format, see Programming Flag Options on page 59.
Reminder
When you set the time, you need to type the time in a 24 hour format. To
convert the current time to a 24 hour format, add the number 12 to every
hour after 12 noon. For example: 1:15 P.M. programs as 1315. 8:20 A.M.
programs as 0820.
To set the date
Example 1: To program June 30, 2002

Using the Cash Drawer
Using the Cash Drawer
The cash drawer is where you put the money after you ring up a sale. The
cash drawer has slots for putting paper bills and a tray for coins. You can
store paper items such as checks and charge slips under the removable
coin tray.
When you ring up a sale, the cash drawer automatically opens so you can
make change and put money away. You can also open the cash drawer
without making a sale. This is handy if you need to make change for
someone or forgot to put something away.
The cash drawer locks in 2 different ways. Locking the cash drawer is a
good idea if you need to leave the cash register.
•
The cash drawer automatically locks electronically when you move the
register key to the Off position. Remember to take the register key out if
you are leaving the register. The emergency open lever will still open the
cash drawer when it is electronically locked.
•
You can also use the 515 key to mechanically lock the cash drawer. If
you lock the cash drawer this way, you must have the key to open it
again. Even the emergency open lever will not open the cash drawer.
when it is locked with the key.
Important
If the cash drawer will not open, see if the lock on the cash drawer is turned
to the right. If it is, the drawer is locked with the 515 key. You need the key to
unlock the cash drawer. If the key is lost or locked in the cash drawer,
contact Royal.
To open the cash drawer after a sale
1 When you are done ringing up a sale, press the Amount Tend Total key
at the bottom right of the keyboard. The cash drawer opens. You can
make change and put the money in the drawer.
2 When you are done, push the cash drawer closed.
To open the cash drawer without making a sale
1 Press the #/ST/NS key at the bottom right of the keyboard. The cash
drawer opens and a No Sale receipt prints.
2 When you are done, push the cash drawer closed.
To lock and unlock the cash drawer using the key
1 Using the small key labeled 515, put the key in the lock in the front of
the cash drawer.

Chapter 3: Getting To Know the Cash Register
2 To lock the cash drawer, turn the key to the right and remove the key
from the lock.
3 To unlock the cash drawer, turn the key to the left and remove the key
from the lock.
To open the cash drawer using the emergency lever
1 With your hands on the cash drawer, carefully tip the front of the
register up. Underneath the cash register, toward the back of the register,
you see a small lever.
2 Push the lever in the only direction it will move. The cash drawer opens.
If the cash drawer will not open, make sure it is not locked with the 515
Drawer key.
Using the Accessory Drawer
Your cash register has a small drawer above the cash drawer. The
Accessory drawer can be opened at any time by anyone. It is a good place
to put things like pens, pencils, and note pads.
Because anyone can open the drawer, it is not a good idea to put checks or
charge slips in it. You should put those in the cash drawer, under the coin
drawer.
Make sure that you never put anything valuable in the Accessory drawer.
Using the Counterfeit Detector Feature
Your cash register comes with a handy Counterfeit detector feature that
helps you decide if the money is possibly counterfeit or fradulant.
All new style American paper money, except for the $1 bill, have a strip
that glows under ultra-violet (UV) light. The Counterfeit detector feature
lets you see that strip before you accept the paper money.

Using the Counterfeit Detector Feature
About Paper Money
Just because the Counterfeit detector feature shows a glowing strip does
not always mean the paper money is real. A clever forger may include this
strip in a fake bill. Always use multiple methods to decide if you want to
accept a bill as valid.
Each bill amount has a strip that glows a different color. The location of
the UV markings in US and Canadian currency is shown below:

Canadian Paper Currency: UV sensitive dots are placed in a random
pattern throughout the bill. These dots glow blue.
Detecting Suspicious Money
Always use multiple counterfeit detection methods to guard against
fraudulent paper currency. Some of the more common methods are:
•
Look for blue and red threads in the fabric.
•
Hold the bill up to a light source and check for the watermark - which
should be the face of the same President pictured on the front of that
denomination bill.
•
Hold the bill up to a normal light source (not a UV light) and look for the
UV sensitive strip, the characters USA and the numeric denomination of
the bill (either in numeric form or spelled out)
•
Mark the bill using a Universal Counterfeit Detector Pen, which uses
special ink that reacts to counterfeit paper currency

Chapter 3: Getting To Know the Cash Register
To use the counterfeit detector feature
1 Put the paper money in the slot in the front of the cash register.
2 UV light button
3 Look in window
1 Insert paper bill
2 Press the UV light button. The UV light turns on.
3 Look thru the small window on the front of the cash register. If the bill
has the strip, you see a strip that glows as a color. See the table above for
the correct color. If the bill is Canadian, you see blue dots.
4 When you are done, remove the bill from the slot. Press the UV button
again. The UV light turns off.
Things to Remember
The counterfeit detector feature in the cash register uses ultra-violet light
(UV light) technology and only works on new style US paper currency.
This currency has the large portrait of a US president, off-center on the
front of the bill. Old style U.S. bills, printed before 1996 and all $1 bills do
not have any fluorescent markings. These bills do not react to UV light and
the counterfeit detector in cash register does not show any fluorescent
markings on these bills, even though they may be valid US bills and not
counterfeit.
Keep in mind that any one method of counterfeit detection, including the
UV light mechanism built-in to the cash register, is not fool-proof and only
suggests suspicious paper currency.
Using this counterfeit detection feature is open to user interpretation of the
reading of the currency under the UV-light. If no fluorescent markings are
seen on a US bill, then consider the bill suspicious. This may not mean that
the bill is definitely counterfeit. Use other counterfeit detection methods to
further examine the suspicious bill. If the US dollar bill fails multiple
counterfeit detection methods, then the bill may be counterfeit and you
must decide whether to accept the bill or not.
The opposite may also apply, when a US dollar bill may show fluorescent
markings under UV-light, but there is still a slight chance that the bill is a
very sophisticated counterfeit bill. There are no absolute guarantees to the
authenticity of a US dollar bill without the use of very high-end,
sophisticated testing methods and devices.

Error Codes
Your cash register makes beeps as well as shows you messages in the
display. Some beeps and messages let you know everything is working
and others let you know you need to do something.
Table 8 Common errors
This error...
Means this...
Register Beep
The cash register makes a short beep each
time a key is pressed. This is normal and not a
cause for concern.
Entry Error Beep
When using your cash register, you must
perform all operations in the correct order. If
you press the wrong key at the wrong time, an
alarm beep sounds and you see a message on
the display. The keyboard also locks. Press the
Clear key to continue.
When a transaction is started in the REG1 or
REG2 position, you must complete the sale
before moving the Mode key to another
position. When an operation is started but not
finished in the REG1 or REG2 positions,
turning the Mode key to another position
makes an alarm beep and you see an error
message on the display. Press the Clear key to
continue.
Printer Error
If a PE appears in the display, check if you are
out of paper. Check for a paper jam. For more
information about other solutions, see PE
Printer Error on page 91.
Clearing an Error
The Clear key stops an alarm beep that happened because a key was
pressed that was not correct for that operation.
The Clear key does not erase a transaction that was registered by an
operating key and printed on the register tape.
To erase an entry after you press a key that printed the entry on the tape,
use the Void key to correct the error.
If the cash register makes a loud error beep, press the Clear key to stop it.

Programming Department Keys
Programming Department Keys
Departments are a category of merchandise. For example, Department 1
can be Housewares, Department 2 can be Food, Department 3 can be
Womens Clothing, and so on. This helps you track what you are selling.
Each department can be programmed as taxable or non-taxable, so that if
an item needs to be taxed, it is added automatically when you ring up an
item in a taxable department.
You can have as many as 99 departments on your cash register. If you
have many departments, you may want to make a list so other people who
use the cash register can properly use the department keys.
Programming departments includes up to 6 steps. Not all steps listed
below may apply to your specific needs, but you must specify a value for
each, even if you do not plan to use that feature.

Setting Standard and Gallonage Mode
A department can be set for either Standard Mode or Gallonage Mode.
Gallonage Mode allows entering a price with 3 decimal places,
representing the cost per gallon, pound, kilogram, yard, meter, or other
unit of measurement. For example, $1.499 per gallon.
Standard Mode enters the price using the normal 2 decimal place setting.

Programming Multiple and Single Items
Multiple Item Entry allows you to ring up two or more items into a
department. For example, if you want to ring up 5 of the same items, you
can tell the cash register to multiply the one price by the number of items.
Single Item Entry allows you to ring up only one item in a department.
For example, if you want to ring up 5 of the same items, you must ring
each one up individually.

Programming Department Preset Price
If you do not want to preset a price, a price of 0 must be assigned to that
department key. Department Preset Price programs a price in a
department to save time when ringing up an entry. Even if a price has
been pre-programmed, you can override the price at the time of sale.
The price automatically rings up each time the department key is pressed.
Important
If you do not need a preset price, enter 0 as the price.
Assigning Department Number Keys
You must assign a department number. After you assign a department
number, you can press the Amount Tend/Total key to finish programming
if you do not want a department description.
The Department number keys from 1 to 20 are easy to use: You just press
the Department number key you want. For example, to use Dept 2, press
the Dept 2 key.
The Department keys from 21 to 40 are also easy to use. Just press the
Dept Shift key and then press the Department number key you want. For
example, to use Dept 23, press the Dept 23 key.
To use the Department keys from 41 to 99, do the following:
•
Press the Dept Shift key.
•
Using the round Number keys, type the Department number from 41 to
99 that you want to use. For example, for Department 63, press the 6
key and then press the 3 key.

Programming Department Names
A name or description can be assigned to each department key. This
name appears on the clerk display and prints when ringing up sales.
For example, Clothing can print on the receipt in place of Dept 1,
Shoes can print on the receipt in place of Dept 2, Sportswear can
print on the receipt in place of Department 3, and so on.

Programming PLU Descriptions
The Price-Look Up system allows for fast, accurate entry of an item and
automatically records the number of items sold. If you want to use the
barcode reader, you can scan UPC codes to ring up items.
A total of 1000 Price Look Up codes (PLUs) are available. Each PLU must
be programmed with up to a 12 character description that appears on the
display and prints on the tape.
Programming PLUs consists of the following:
1 Assign a PLU number between 1 and 1000 to each sales item or scan the
UPC barcode.
2 Assign a price.
3 Link the PLU to a department key with the appropriate Tax Status for
that PLU.
4 Enter a description for the PLU. You must enter a description, even if it
is as simple as PLU4.
For example, if PLU #1 is a taxable item, you can link it to a Department
key which is set up for tax. If PLU #2 is not a taxable item, you can link it
to a Department key which is programmed for no tax.

example, when you have a sale, you may want to be able to apply a 10%
discount to certain items.
Programming Minus Percentage Discounts
You may want to deduct a percentage rate from the usual rate of an item,
such as an employee discount. The Minus Percentage Discount [-%/RA]
subtracts a percentage rate from an individual item. You can program the
rate or you can enter it by hand each time. Regardless of how you specify
54
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
Programming Discounts
a discount, the discount you enter must always be 4 digits. For example,
you enter a 25% discount as 2500.
You can also set it so that the Minus Percentage Discount amount is not
subtracted from the department totals on the Management Reports. For
more information, see Flag 23 on page 63.
After you are done, you can check your results. See Running the Program
Confirmation Report on page 73.

and then press the Check key. If you did not program a Manager
Password, go to the next step.
3 Using the round Number keys, press 1000 0 and then press the -%/RA
key.
You must always enter the percentage rate as a 4-digit number without
the decimal point, representing 00.00 through 99.99.
Note
See Minus Percentage Discount Sale on page 103 to ring up a Minus
Percentage Discount sale.
Programming Coupon Discounts
You can use the Coupon Discount (CPN) key to subtract a specific amount
from an individual item. You can enter a coupon in the middle of a
transaction or by itself in a transaction.
After you are done, you can check your results. See Running the Program
Confirmation Report on page 73.
Programming the Coupon Discount key includes 2 steps:
1 Setting a High Digit Lock Out (HDLO) number
The High Digit Lock Out (HDLO) number limits the number of digits
that can be rung up in a coupon discount. This prevents you from
accidentally subtracting a large amount.
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide

Chapter 5: Setting Up Your Cash Register - Advanced
If large number of digits is entered, you hear an error beep and the
keypad locks up. For example: To make sure no one can ring up more
than $99.99 on the Coupon Discount key, set the HDLO to 4.

The tax status determines how you want the tax rate to be charged when
using the Coupon Discount key. Contact your local tax authorities to learn
your local tax requirements.
The options are:
• To charge tax on the original amount of an item (the amount before
the coupon is deducted).
• To charge tax on the discounted amount of an item (the amount after
the coupon discount is deducted).
Note
If you have no tax rate programmed in the cash register, use 00 from the Tax
Status Numbers table.

charge to an individual item. You can program the rate or you can enter it
by hand each time. Regardless of how you specify the Plus Percentage,
the amount you enter must always be 4 digits. For example, you enter a
25% Plus Percentage as 2500.
When you use the Plus Percentage/Add-On key, the words Add-on
appear on the display and print on the receipt.
You can also set the cash register so that the Plus Percentage amount is
not added to the department totals on the Management Reports. For more
information, see Flag 23 on page 63.

Programming Flag Options
Flag options are actions you can set for the cash register. These actions
include how the date appears, if the tax rate prints on receipts, if clerk
numbers are used, and so on.
34 Flags are available on your cash register. The Flags are preset by the
factory to meet the most commonly used actions. Each Flag setting can be
changed or updated at any time, if needed.
Note
All Flag action are factory preset at 0, except for Flags 15, 18, 27, 28, 30, 33,
and 34 which have a default setting of 1. Flag actions only need to be
changed if you want to change any action from the default setting.
If you change the language after programming is complete, descriptions
like logo, department and PLU names revert to their default descriptions
and you must reprogram them. The numeric amounts that you
programmed do not change.
Note
If you program custom messages or department descriptions, changing
languages does not translate those messages. Instead, they are deleted and
reset to the factory default for the message or description. Before you
program your messages, select the language you want the cash register to
be in.
After a Full System Clear, all settings go back to the default settings.
To program flag options

Ringing up Sales and Using
Training Mode
After you set up your cash register, ringing up sales is easy. For
information about ringing up complicated sales, see Examples on page 94.
If you want to learn about using the cash register without affecting the
daily total, you can use the Training mode. You or someone else can learn
how to use the cash register without creating real sales that show up on
reports. For example, you can train a new person about using the
department keys and completing sales.
Training mode lets someone use the cash register without actually
recording the sales in the sales history. When you stop Training mode, the
training sales information is deleted.
Ringing up Sales
After you have the basics programmed in your cash register, you are ready
to ring up sales. For more information about setting up the basics on your
cash register, see Setting Up Your Cash Register - the Basics on page 19.
Reminder
You do not need to press the Decimal Point key when ringing up a price.

Programming Complex Tax Rates
Your cash register can manage complex tax rates and assignments. This
chapter explains how to do this.
Many people do not need the information in this chapter. If this
information does not relate to your business needs, you can skip it. If some
information is related to your specific needs, then skip any sections which
you do not need to set up your cash register.
If you do not know your sales tax rate and base amount, contact your local
government office and ask for your local tax chart. The base tax amount is
the maximum point where no tax is charged. Your cash registers defaults
to a base tax amount of 10 cents. If your base tax amount is other than 10
cents, see Calculating State Tax Table Codes on page 118.
When you set up your cash register, you programmed the cash register to
use a simple sales tax, appropriate for your area. Chapter 2 explains how
to program a simple sales tax. Chapter 5 explains how to set up sales tax
related to departments or PLUs.
Note
If you hear an error tone while you are programming, press the CLEAR key
and continue by repeating the step.
You do not need to reprogram all options if you want to update or change
one thing. Save this manual in a safe place so you have it for future

Setting the Tax Rates
You can program 4 different tax rates on your cash register. Each tax rate
can be linked directly to a department key (see Programming Tax Status
on page 40), or by pressing the Tax 1 or Tax 2 keys before ringing up an

You can set the cash register to not print the tax rate on receipts. For more
information, see Programming Flag Options on page 59.
You can program each Tax Rate as follows:
•
As an ADD-ON RATE (used in the USA) - means the tax amount prints
separately on the receipt. Add-on Tax is most common in the United

Running Management Reports
The cash register maintains totals of all transaction information. This
information is saved in the memory of the cash register as long as the
register is plugged in to an electrical outlet or, if the cash register is
unplugged, the batteries are charged.
Management reports show you information about how sales are
progressing. You can run most reports with the Mode key in either the X
position or the Z position. See Running a Financial Report on page 79 for
instructions to run X and Z reports.

•
X reports are run during the day to check transactions. These reports do
not clear the transaction memory in the cash register. You can run all
reports in the X position.
•
Z reports are run at end of day, end of the week, or end of the month.
These reports do clear the transaction memory in the cash register.
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
Running Management Reports
When you are done printing these reports, the information only exists on
the cash register tape. You can run almost all reports in the Z position.
To prevent someone from accidently printing these reports, a manager
password can be set. After the password is set, these reports do not print
until the password is entered. For information about setting manager
passwords, see Setting X and Manager Passwords on page 31.
Besides passwords, the keys that came with your cash register are also a
form of security. We recommend giving clerks the REG keys and giving
managers the Z and PRG keys.
For additional security, only the Z and PRG keys can run Z reports. The
REG key cannot run Z reports. This means that people with REG keys
cannot run or clear the transaction history.
About X Readings
There are two kinds of readings that can be taken in the X position: an X1
reading and an X2 reading.
•
X1 Reading - Commonly known as a mid-day reading. Use this position
to print periodic readings of transaction totals during the course of the
day. This reading position does not reset to zero.
•
X2 Reading - Commonly known as a mid-week or mid-month reading. Use
this position to print periodic readings of transaction totals during the
course of several days. This reading position does not reset to zero.
About Z Readings
There are two types of readings that can be taken in the Z position: a Z1
reading and a Z2 reading.
•
Z1 reading — Commonly known as a end-of-day/daily-closeout reading.
This reading prints all transaction data and sets all totals to zero, except
the Running Grand Total.
You can also print a duplicate Z1 Report. This is useful if the register
runs out of paper or if there is a power outage while the Z1 Report is
printing. This feature can also be turned off by Flag setting 25. For more
information about Flags, see Programming Flag Options on page 59.
•
Z2 reading — Commonly known as a weekly or monthly reading. This
reading prints transaction totals either on a weekly or monthly basis (not
both) and resets all transaction totals to zero except the Running Grand
Total.

Using the Battery System
Your cash register has a memory where information about your
programming and transactions are stored. This memory stores the
information that lets you print reports, such as the total sales for the day,
week, or month. The cash register memory also stores information about
any special programming you have done.
If your cash register is unplugged or if there is a power outage, the
batteries keep the information in the memory until you plug the cash
register into a power source or the power is restored.
To make sure the battery back-up protection is working, replace the
batteries at least once a year. To help you remember, consider replacing
the batteries on New Years Day. The cash register can be off or unplugged
for as long as 700 hours (about 28 days) and the information in the
memory is still there when you are ready to use the register again.
If there was a power outage, replace the batteries as soon as there is power
again. DO NOT remove or replace the batteries until you plug the cash
register into a power source and you see messages on the display.
If you will not use the cash register for an extended period of time, you
can remove the batteries to prolong their life. However, all information in
the cash register will be erased if you do this.
Caution
You must plug the cash register in before installing or replacing the back-up
batteries. All data is erased when you remove the batteries if the cash
register is not plugged in before you remove the batteries.

About the Serial Port
Your cash register includes a serial
port on on the right side of the cash
register. You can connect items to the

Calculating State Tax Table Codes
This appendix shows you how to program your cash register for state tax.
Check the Royal website at www.royal.com for the established state tax
table rates.
The State Tax Code represents a series of codes which are derived from
your State's Retail Tax Chart to give you the highest level of accuracy in
charging sales and other taxes.
Calculating Your Tax
This section gives you instructions for figuring your own tax code if your
specific state's tax code is not listed in the appendix. Take the time to
follow the Example Tax Chart on page 122. Familiarize yourself with the
method of determining the tax code.
Then, using The Worksheet on page 123, duplicate the method of
calculating your state tax code by the steps described in this section. To do
this you need to get a copy of your state's Retail Tax Chart from your local
Tax Office. After you are done, write down the tax code and save the
information for future reference.
Every tax table consists of tax brackets. Each consecutive tax bracket is
assigned a tax which is exactly one cent higher than that assigned to the
previous tax bracket. For examples, see Example Tax Chart on page 122.
In our Example Tax Chart, a sale from .00 to .12 is not taxed. The next tax
bracket a sale from .13 to .31 is taxed one cent. The next tax bracket a sale
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
Calculating Your Tax
from .32 to .54 is taxed two cents. The tax table progresses in a similar
pattern.
To calculate your tax rate
1 Using The Worksheet on page 123, complete Step A with the
appropriate amounts from your state's Retail Tax Chart.
2 For the following, see the Example Tax Chart, Step B:
The difference between the starting amounts of each consecutive tax
bracket is called a breakpoint. Every tax table consists of a particular
sequence of breakpoints.
In our Example Tax Chart, the difference between .00 and .13 is .13
cents. This 13 is the first breakpoint. The difference between .13 and .32
is .19 cents, which means 19 is the second breakpoint.
The breakpoints continue in a particular sequence through the entire tax
table. It is this particular sequence of breakpoints that is used to
determine the programming code.
• Using The Worksheet, complete Step B by calculating the breakpoints
based on your state's Retail Tax Chart.
• The sequence of breakpoints is divided into Regular and Irregular
patterns. All tax tables repeat a pattern of irregular breakpoints that
lead into a pattern of regular breakpoints.
To determine the breakpoint pattern, continue calculating the
breakpoints in Part B until you have found the Regular repeat
breakpoint pattern.
From our example:
Breakpoints 13, 19, 23, 27, 27, 29 are the Irregular breakpoint pattern.
Breakpoints 25, 25, 25, 25 are the Regular repeat breakpoint pattern.
The Regular repeat breakpoint pattern is a point where you first see a
repetition of one or more numbers, which must then add up evenly to
100, 200, 300, and so on. In our programming example, the Regular
breakpoint pattern (25, 25, 25, and 25) adds up to 100.
Using The Worksheet, determine the Regular breakpoint pattern based
on your state's Retail Tax Chart.
3 For the following, see the Example Tax Chart, Step C:
The first number to be programmed consists of the Base Tax followed by
the number 1. In PRG position, type your Base Tax number, followed by
the number 1, then press the Tax 2 key.
• The Base Tax - A base tax is defined by local or state government and
refers to the minimum point where no tax is charged. If no tax is
charged from .0 cents to .12 cents, then .12 cents is your base tax.
Alpha 600sc User’s Guide
119
Appendix A: Calculating State Tax Table Codes
• The Number 1 - The programming mode for a tax table is 1. When
programming any tax table code this number does not change.
For example: If the base tax is .12 cents: Type 121, then press Tax 2.
The display shows 1.21.
Using The Worksheet, complete Step A.
4 For the following, see the Example Tax Chart, Step D:
The second number to be programmed is a six digit number. Follow the
instructions and examples below to determine your six digit number. In
PRG position, type the six digit number and then press the Tax 2 key.
Example: 4% State Tax Table:
(2)
100
x 24
2400
(1)
4
4% Tax Table Rate
x 24 Multiplier
96 Result: The six digit number to be
programmed is 240096
• (1) First determine the multiplier1. The multiplier is the number which
when multiplied by the percentage rate equals a whole number as
close as possible to the number 100 and still remaining a 2 digit
number. In the example above, the multiplier is 24. The number 4 (the
percentage rate) is multiplied by 24 to determine the number 96 which
is the last two digits of the 6 digit number to be programmed: (24 x 4 =
96).
• (2) The first four digits of the 6 digit number (2400) are determined by
multiplying the number 24 by 100 (24 x 100 = 2400). The final
resulting 6 digit number to be programmed is 240096.
Using The Worksheet, complete Step D.
5 For the following, see the Example Tax Chart, Step E:
• In PRG position, type the individual breakpoints of the Irregular
breakpoint pattern and press the Tax 2 key after each breakpoint. Place
the number 10 before the last breakpoint entry.
Table 24 Example: Irregular breakpoint sequence: 13, 19, 23, 27, 27, 1029
Type...
Press...
Appears as...
13
Tax 2
0.13
19
Tax 2
0.19
23
Tax 2
0.23
1. The easiest way to determine the multiplier is to divide the number 100 by the
percentage rate until the result is a whole number as close to 100 as possible and still
remaining a 2 digit number.

Programming the State Tax
You need to get a copy of your state's Retail Tax Chart so you can know
the base tax amount. The base tax amount is the maximum price where
no tax is charged. For example, if no tax is charged from 0 cents to 10
cents, then 10 cents is the base tax amount.
After you find out your state’s tax rate, you can program it into your cash
register.
Note
If you make a mistake or you hear an error beep while you are programming
the sales tax, press Clear and start over with Step 3.
To program a single fixed tax rate using a base tax amount
Example 68: If the Base Tax Amount is 10 cents and the Tax Rate is 6%:
