Printing
IM Series scales are supplied with a label/receipt printer. The printer will accept label or
continuous paper rolls of two core diameters.
The printer is fitted with a small hub to take paper or label rolls with the small core.
A larger sleeve is provided to clip over the small hub for use with large core paper and
label rolls.
Check that the correct size of hub is fitted before loading the paper or label roll.
Check that the arrow on the spindle
points towards the scale.
Figure 3.5
Changing the printer hub
Before you use your scale you should:
•
check that the appropriate type of printer roll is loaded.
•
adjust the label width guide if you load a printer roll of a different width.
Note: Printers using labels automatically adjust to accommodate labels of a different
length.
CAUTION: Should labels become stuck in the printer, under no circumstances use a metal
object to clear the blockage.
CAUTION: Do not use sharp or metal objects to remove 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 Products appears on the display to inform you that the printer roll is

change PINs and operator security in Manager Mode. If you accidentally set all the security
levels too low see section 16.1, page 230.
Operator security level
•
There are three security levels from 0 to 2.
•
The security level determines operator access to scale functions.
•
The operator will have access to those functions whose security level is the same as
or less than their own security level.

Dedicated keys
Dedicated keys are ‘soft' keys which can be assigned to any of the programmable keys
on the keyboard.
You can label the key position for a soft key according to your own requirements.
Figure 7.1 shows how to assign a dedicated PLU (commodity) key for PLU 117. The
procedure is similar for any other type of dedicated key.

Printer set-up
This group of functions enable you to customise the way in which your machine
generates and prints labels, receipts and talons.
Label setup
These options allow you to choose:
•
how you want labels to look and
•
the way in which you want labels to be generated and printed.
Label type
You can select either separate or continuous labels.
Continuous paper
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 are printed on label rolls with separate labels. These labels must be the
appropriate size to accommodate the label format assigned to the PLU or to the machine.
Selecting label format
The label format can be open or closed.
There are 12 standard label formats and four nutritional label formats available. Any of
the formats can be set to suit your requirements.
•
Open label format.
Labels are printed according to the format stored in the PLU record.
•
Closed label format.
Labels are printed using the label format you have assigned to the machine.
If you machine is operating in Hand Price mode the label format assigned to the machine
will be used.
Tare interlock
If the tare interlock is enabled, you will only be able to print a label if you have selected a
tare.
Suppressing symbols
If symbols are enabled then symbols, for example, £, kg, £/ are printed on labels. If you
want to use pre-printed labels you can choose to disable symbols.

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.
You cannot use
.
Pre-pack
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
key.
Print on request
Weighed and non-weighed transactions will be assigned to the default operator number.
Print immediate
Weighed transactions will be assigned to the default operator number.
Pre-pack
All labels will be assigned to the default operator number.
Talon
A talon is a log of each receipt printed at a machine and is printed after the receipt. It
shows the operator number, the number of transactions and the total value of the last
receipt.
Duplicate receipt
Use this function to set up the printer to print a duplicate receipt. DUPLICATE is printed at
the start and end of the duplicate receipt.

automatically on receipts and labels and to display alternate currency prices on request.
You can print or suppress the warning message on the receipt.
On labels you can select to print either totals only or totals and unit price in the alternate
currency.
Receipt printing
Provided your machine has been configured to print the alternate currency symbols, you
can set up and assign a key, see page 65, to print a duplicate receipt using the alternate
currency.
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.

Speed/density
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.

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 totalized 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.
There are three types of Frequent Shopper promotion available.
•
Price
You can program a second price for the PLU which applies if the customer is part of
the frequent shopper program.
•
% Discount
This type of promotion calculates the discount as a percentage of the original unit
price or of the total price for the PLU.
You must enter the percentage discount as a whole number. For example:
A price reduction of 3% must be entered as 3.00.

Creating a nutritional panel
You can enter the information required to create a nutritional label at the end of the

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.
The format of this label is factory set and cannot be altered. Label rotation can be 0° or
180° and you can select either long label format or short label format, as shown in Figure
6.10, according to the label format number programmed in the PLU.
Use label formats numbered 12 to 15 for these fixed format nutritional labels.

Serving per container
The number of servings per container is calculated automatically from the serving size
programmed in the PLU and the weight of the product in the container:
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.

Re-opening receipts
You can add or void individual items on a receipt, or void a complete receipt.
Note: This function is restricted to authorized personnel only.
Please remember .....
If an operator has outstanding transactions, the message ‘Print Receipt’ is
displayed and this function is not available.
If there are no transactions outstanding against an operator:
1. press the ‘reopen receipt’ key
2. enter the receipt number at the bottom of the receipt when prompted.
If the receipt number exists, the receipt is voided from all management totals
Note: Only the number after the network ID is required. For example if 35#123456
is printed at the bottom of the receipt, then only 123456 should be entered.
3. The receipt stored in the audit buffer is modified to show it has been voided
and the operator number is changed to the operator performing the void.
4. The receipt is reopened and assigned to the operator. Individual transactions
can be added or voided, or the whole receipt can be voided if required. When
the receipt is reprinted it will be totalized as a standard receipt.
Note: Voided receipts are returned to the software during transaction collection to
provide information regarding the number of receipts voided and which operators
performed the task.

Introducing 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. No default values are preprogrammed for variable format barcodes.
You can select one of the barcode types for labels, receipts and talons or you can switch

Fixed format barcodes
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.
Example:The USA uses UPC barcodes
Example:Europe uses EAN barcodes.
Default format
Each type of barcode has been programmed into the machine as a standard format for
the barcode digits (see section 10.6, page 161). 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.
Variable format barcodes
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 barcodes
Please remember .....
Label machines
Barcodes will only be printed if you assign a default barcode format to the machine or
enable the barcode in a PLU (see section 5.4, page 71 and Barcode printing, page 87).
Please remember .....
Receipt machines
Barcodes will only be printed on receipts or talons if you enable them in the machine.
If the barcode format includes the department number or group number, you may not mix
goods or items from different departments or groups on the same receipt.
Printing multiple barcodes
•
You can print multiple barcodes on the same label if necessary.
•
The barcodes can be defined in the PLU or referenced to a label format.
•
Programming the barcode in the PLU is the preferred method for PoS barcodes.
Please remember .....
Create the barcodes before you create PLUs.

Price embedded barcode
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.

Use this type of barcode for goods with a non variable weight and a fixed price.
A barcode showing just the product number is attached to the goods and the price is
displayed on the shelf edge.
A typical use would be for products from the bakery department

Barcode scanning
You can use the Avery Berkel scanner to:
•
read in-store or branded barcodes at a PoS machine when your machine is in sales
mode.
•
help you program PLUs when your machine is in manager mode (see section 6.4,
page 81).
Please remember .....
You can only use the scanner if an appropriate barcode is displayed on the goods.
Branded 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.
In-store goods
If you wish to scan in-store goods you must print a suitable barcode and attach it to the
product being sold.
Note: RSS Limited barcodes are not suitable for use with some types of scanner.
Reading a barcode
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.
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.
Please remember .....
The scanner will use the first barcode type it encounters with a prefix matching the
one on the goods. It is important that you do not program different barcode types
with the same prefix.
Assigning a barcode
•
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

Product Traceability
11
This section describes how to set up and use the product traceability scheme to provide
an audit trail for a product back through the stages in its production to its original source.
You can record traceability for up to 9 cutting centres and 5 fattening countries. It can be
used for:
•
beef products
•
other types of meat products such as pork
•
non meat products such as fish or cheese.
These instructions describe how to set up and use the scheme for tracking bovine
carcasses.
To use the scheme for other types of product, change the data names and programming
texts to suit the product.

11.1 Mandatory information
Mandatory information
Traceability enables you to label products with information about the animal or group of
animals (batch) from which the product was derived.
In some markets certain traceability information is mandatory.
Example:The following lists the information which is mandatory when labelling beef
products in EU countries.
•
lot number (more than one animal) or carcass number.
•
slaughter house reference and country.
•
cutting/de-boning centre reference and country.
•
country of birth.
•
country of rearing.
In addition, approved voluntary information may be included on labels and receipts.
Please remember .....
If the product is
•
pre-packed (packed when the customer is not present), the traceability information
must be printed on the product label or receipt.
•
packed or 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. If this is not possible you can use Tray
labelling, see page 189.

Using traceability
Traceability details are printed on labels for all products associated with a carcass/batch.
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.
Traceability barcode format:
•
defines the actual data and messages printed
•
may also contain additional information provided by the supplier.
Traceability tables:
•
are a database of countries, categories etc held by the machine.
•
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/batch.
•
print counter service tray labels providing full traceability information for the customer.
•
create duplicate passports, including a copy of the original barcode.
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 machine.
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.

11.3 Traceability schemes
Traceability schemes
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. You can choose from:
•
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
Select No Weight Limit if you do not want to use weight limits during trading.
Batch Weight uses the weight of the whole batch (usually encoded in the supplier
barcode).
Pack Weight allows you to set weight limits for individual cases or packs.
If the barcode includes AI 303 the batch weight is incremented each time a pack is
scanned. When the weight sold equals the weight limit for the batch you will see a
warning message and you will not be able to print further labels.
•
% Wastage
If you select Batch Weight or Pack Weight limits you will be prompted for a %
Wastage value. This is a programmable value that allows for wastage in the batch
due to bone etc.
•
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.
The default option Use Scheme Life, computes the expiry date from the slaughter
date plus the scheme life. You can manually override the date if required.
Use Expiry Date uses the sell by date encoded (AI 17) in the supplier barcode. You
can manually override this date if required.
Scheme reference
This is a reference number from 1 to 10 that is used to link the batch being processed to
the correct scheme.

11.4 Printing the information
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
(see Appendix, page 242).
In preset mode, you can print the traceability information as:
•
a single block of text
•
as individual lines of text which can be printed in different areas on 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 (see Appendix, page 243).
•
separate the lines of text in the traceability text panel using line feed and centralise line
feed characters.
For information on creating and editing text see Part 1 Chapter 4.2.
You must select a suitable label format or the data will not 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.
•
Enable receipt or counter service printing if required
•
Define the barcode format for non-standard AI reference codes
•
Program the tables with the data names and associated text as you want them to
appear on the traceability panel.
•
Create the traceability format which defines the way in which the information will be

11.6 Programming traceability tables
Programming traceability tables
If you are using nonpreset schemes or scanning supplier proprietary barcodes, you need
to set up tables for:
•
countries of origin
•
slaughter centre references
•
cutting centre references.
Creating messages
When creating messages ensure that the messages programmed in your machine match
the messages used by your suppliers.
All your suppliers must use the same messages.
You can create seven different lists of messages.

Origin, slaughter reference and cutting reference information is mandatory. Category,
breed, type and species is additional information which may be included.
Origin messages
An origin message may be a country, a supplier or EC member states. You can print up
to four origin messages on the label, for example: country of birth, supplied by. The
default origin list contains internationally agreed country references (ISO 3166) but you
can change these if necessary. To revert to the default value just delete the current entry
in the table (see Part 1, section 4.2, Creating and editing text, page 32) and press Enter .
Slaughter reference
This table stores reference information about where the animal was slaughtered. It
contains the name of the country and the approval number for the slaughterhouse.
Cutting reference
This table stores reference information about where the carcass was cut up and deboned. It contains the name of the country and the approval number for the cutting
centre.

11.7 Defining the barcodes
Defining the barcodes
There are two types of barcode used with bovine traceability.
•
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.
•
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.
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 for AI 950 is:
LWYTTUUVV
Example:
(10)234567(7030)250789(7031)250654
(950)141010100(953)321
(10)
6 digit carcass/lot number= 234567

3 digit cutting country reference= 250 = France
3 digit cutting number= 654

Traceability barcodes
Used for fixed, non AI barcodes received from suppliers.
A traceability barcode format defines the information conveyed by the printed bars in the
barcode in a similar way to a label or receipt barcode. Traceability barcodes are based on
digits, for example 00000006666661122335544.
The default barcode format is:
00000044551122
14digits
6 digit carcass/lot number + 2digit slaughter reference + 2 digit cutting reference + 2 digit
origin message 1 + 2digit origin message 2 = 14 digits
Example:
1234560101050114 digits
6 digit carcass/lot number= 123456
2 digit slaughter reference= 01 = UK (1143)
2 digit cutting reference= 01 = UK (19985)
2 digit origin message 1= 05 = Scotland
2 digit origin message 2= 01 = UK
Example:The maximum number of barcode digits you can specify in the barcode format
is 40.
The barcode digit in the first column of the table is also entered in the traceability format,
see page 182, so the machine knows how to print bovine details on the label.

Capturing the source data
Supplier’s label
The supplier attaches a barcoded label (traceability passport) to the carcass containing
the information required.
Programming the machine with the same messages and data used by the supplier means
that you can print the data defined in the traceability barcode on all labels for associated
PLUs.
There are various ways in which the traceability data can be input to the machine.
•
Use the Avery Berkel scanner to read the proprietary barcodes printed on the carcass
labels by the supplier.
•
Use the keyboard to enter the references for each data item when a product is
selected.
•
Use the Avery Berkel scanner to read the EAN128, PDF417 and RSS barcodes
containing all the required bovine data.
Note:
When variable format barcodes are used it is possible that more than one barcode will be
required to contain all the data. The system has been designed to cope with this.
Hash key
If a hash key has been assigned to the keyboard, you can enter the barcode digits
manually:
1. Press
#
2. Type in the barcode digits
3. Press
Use this method if you do not have a scanner or the scanner fails to read the barcode,

11.11 Counter service operation
In counter service you can scan the barcoded information from the tray label for the
product, or you can type in the lot number at the keyboard and the machine will print it on
the label or receipt.
Tray labelling
Where the product is packed in the presence of the customer, it is not necessary to print
all the carcass/batch details on each label or receipt, provided that the information is
clearly displayed and obviously intended for that product.
The system enables you to assign a panel key to print `tray labels' for use in this mode of
operation. You can use this key to print a counter service tray label for each tray of
product on sale.
Tray labelling can be used in non-preset and preset modes.
Setting up the key
1. Create a PLU called `Tray Label'.
2. Select a label format for the PLU that has the relevant text fields included.
Tray labels usually have larger print than pack labels and the field needs to be large
enough to allow all the information to be printed.
3. Enter the text required and the appropriate %% or Dewey Decimal codes in one of the
PLU text fields.
4. Step through the remaining options except unit or item price without entering any data.
5. Select Traceability On.
6. Assign the key to the sales keyboard.
Note: You will need to program the PLU with a nominal unit or item price, but check that
the label format selected has no fields for printing weight or price information.

Grand totals report
A Grand total consolidates data from PLU, Operator, Department, 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. Net sales value and tax value are
calculated according to whether the tax system in use is inclusive or exclusive.
You can select either X or Z totals to print. If you select the X total, the totals are carried
forward and are not cleared. If you select the Z total, the totals are cleared.

•
to collect transactions if you have the appropriate PC software application (MX100).
Please remember .....
Remember to take a backup whenever you make any amendments, otherwise the files will

Filtering the information
You can set up the audit function to:
•
include label or receipt totals or both
or
•
include stock or account totals or both.
•
be able to continue trading when the audit store is full (circular).
•
to have to clear audit transactions before trading can continue when the audit
store is full (linear).
Server/client buffer mode
Note: Client buffer mode only takes effect in local mode.
If you select Circular you will be able to continue trading when the audit store is
full but new audit transactions will over write the oldest audit transactions. You
will not see any warning messages.
If you select Linear you will see flashing warning messages Audit 75% Full and
Audit 90% Full as the number of transactions in the audit store approach the
maximum permitted. The message replaces the scroll message on the vendor
display in sales mode and is also displayed if you go to the network map in
manager mode.
Note: Normally the server buffer mode is set to circular and the clients are set to
linear.
•
An error message is displayed at three stages:
•
Audit 75% Full when the audit store is 75% full.
•
Audit 90% Full when the audit store is 90% full.
•
Audit Full when there is no space left in the audit store.
To continue trading you must either Erase Audit List or print the Audit Report
and then Erase Audit List to clear the audit store of transactions.
Label override
Label override allows you to continue trading when the client audit buffer mode is
linear and the buffer is full.
This is the default mode for machines operating in label mode. The Audit Full
message will be displayed on every transaction until the audit buffer has been
cleared.
Press
Audit Mode
to clear the message and complete the transaction.

Communications failure
If there is a communications failure between the server and client machines a
machine may retain audit transactions while operating in local mode.
As soon as the server detects and reinstates the client machine, the client audit
transactions are transferred to the server.
If the client buffer is set to linear mode, no warnings will be given when the buffer
is nearly full. No further transactions will be allowed when the buffer is full.

14.1 Setting up a network
Setting up a network
Networked machines are connected using ethernet network cables. These cables enable
information to be passed between each connected machine (and other devices if used).
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.
Please remember .....
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
recognized by the server.
Network compatibility
You can use MX100 back office software to link an IM series machine network to another
existing IM series

Operating mode
The store network can consist of a mixture of label and receipt machines.
Vendors may be logged on to more than one machine and ‘float’ between machines to
serve customers anywhere in the store.
Receipt printing machines will
•
totalise transactions
•
print a counter receipt
•
print a sales receipt where the vendor receives payment for the goods.
Counter receipts are redeemed at a Point of Sale (PoS) machine or checkout for
payment.
Label machines will
•
print labels
•
consolidate the transactions at the checkout or PoS machine.
Other PoS machines within the store will complete transactions and generate sales
receipts for any purchases at those machines.
For example, cigarettes purchased at the tobacco kiosk.

Auto configure
You can use auto configure to quickly set up a network of machines that are programmed
with the factory default IP address and have been connected to an ethernet hub.
Adding a machine to the network
You can add machines to the network up to the maximum allowed (10). When you select
Auto Configure at the new machine it will automatically be allocated 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
machine does not match the server PLU file (see section 14.9, page 222).
Each time the client machine uses a PLU it fetches the PLU data from the server and the
PLU file at the client machine is updated.
If you choose not to perform a network dump, the PLU file at the client will gradually be
updated to match the server.

Backup server
You can change the status of any client machine to server see section 14.4, page 215. If
a server already exists on the network the new server becomes the backup server. If
there is more than one machine 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.
Please remember .....
You should not continue to trade for an extended period unless both the main server and
backup server are switched on.
Should both servers go off-line you can choose to operate the client machines in Local
Mode see section 14.8, page 220.
If audible warning is configured for the machine you will hear a bleep and the network
map will show 0 at the position for the old server.
If there is a cable fault, both the main and backup server will bleep and each machine will
show the other and the client machines as off-line.
Before setting a machine to server status you should:
•
clear all transactions
•
clear all totals
•
Clear the audit list completely.

The message is repeated 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 whichever 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 machine then that machine 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 Dump to check which machine it is.
Operating in local mode
If you use a client machine in Local Mode you will not be able to store totals as these are
collected and stored by the server.
Audit buffer
The audit buffer can operate in linear or circular mode.
Communications
IM series User Instructions
14.8 Local mode
221
Linear mode
In linear mode you cannot continue trading when the audit buffer is full (see 13.1, Setting
up the audit function, page 206). You will see flashing warning messages Audit 75% Full
and Audit 90% Full as the number of transactions in the audit store approach the
maximum permitted.
Circular mode
In circular mode new audit transactions over write the oldest transactions.
Default setting
The default buffer setting for client machines is linear and 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 Avery Berkel.
Please remember .....
Before making any changes you should read Audit Mode page 206.
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 a follows
1. Connect the machine to the network (if it has been disconnected).
2. 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.

14.9 Network dump
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 you:
•
programme the data at a server which is not connected to the network
•
link a new or replacement machine onto the network.
You will not need to dump the data if you:
•
programme the data at a server which is connected to the network and all the
machines are switched on
•
make amendments to the PLU data at any machine provided that all the machines are
switched on.

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 IM series network is to be integrated with an existing Ethernet network.
The IP address of the machine consists of two parts.
•
The network address
•
The network address must be the same as all the other machines on the same
network.
•
The machine address.
The machine address must be different from the 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:
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
255.0.0.0
Sub-net mask
The sub-net mask allows you to split a large physical network into smaller logical
networks.
Please remember .....
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 the subnet mask must match the existing
network. For further information contact Avery Berkel.
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%%machine ID (2two digits)
The default host name text is:
Avery.Berkel.GM.NetId.%%NTID.McId%%MCID
Communications
IM series User Instructions
14.11 Advanced set-up
225
Gateway IP address
Where IM series machines are linked to a PC through a gateway, the IM series machine needs to
know the gateway address in order to communicate with it.
Network ID
The machines are manufactured with a default network ID. You will only need to change
it if more than one IM series network is required.
Up to 10 machines can be connected together into a single machine network. All the
machines in a single network must have the same network ID.
Up to 99 machine networks can be created but each group of machines must have a
network ID number that is different from 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 used to communicate with a PC running MX100 software.
The IM series machine needs to know the port number for MX100 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 machine on a network. The new machine must use the
same network ID.
Cloning transfers:
•
system data
•
service configuration (not capacity)
•
machine setup
•
dedicated keys

When setting up several stand-alone machines with the same PLUs and system
information, usi.ng a memory stick saves you 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 MX050 Scale Support Tool. Contact Avery Berkel for more information.
Dumping
The USB or data backup software tool receives data from the machine and stores a copy
in its own memory until you wish to use it. The original data is retained by the machine.
Loading
The USB or data backup software tool sends data to the machine. The data held by the
machine 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 machines
in a store. Where machines are part of a network the system information will be common
to all the machines.
When loading or dumping system information from the machine, the following data is sent
to or received from the USB or data backup software:

17.3 Substitution codes
Substitution codes
There are two types of substitution code supported by the software:
•
the Avery Berkel 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.
Example: To include the name of nutrient 21 from the nutrients list.
Dewey decimal code:%%+1.1#21.1%%
%%+1.1#21.1%%
