Introduction
The UP-3515 inter-register communication (IRC) system consists of one master machine and up to 31
satellite machines which are all interconnected by the local area network (LAN) to provide data transmission
among them. This system allows the manager to exercise centralized control over the satellites through the
master.

2. Open store operation (OPXZ mode) – master and satellite
When the open store operation is performed at the master, the IRC system is opened. POS can send AT
command by this job. This function controls a modem, but doesn't have control over registration and T-LOG.
The procedure for the open store operation is as follows.
Open store procedure
Select “7 OPEN STORE” from the displayed menu in the OPXZ mode window.
NOTE
• You can also perform the open store operation at each satellite.
• The open store operation cannot be performed at any machines whose terminal numbers have
not been programmed.
• When a transmission error occurs while the open store operation is being performed, the open
store operation is regarded as normally terminated if the system retry function* has been
disabled by programming. When the master has been programmed to enable the system retry
function, it displays the machine number of the satellite that has encountered the error.
Selecting the displayed machine number will display a prompt to retry the open store operation.
* For the system retry function, see pages 55–56.
3. Close store operation (OPXZ mode) – master and satellite
When the close store operation is performed at the master, the IRC system is closed. POS can send AT
command by this job. This function controls a modem, but doesn’t have control over registration and T-LOG.
The procedure for the close store operation is as follows.
Close store procedure
Select “8 CLOSE STORE” from the displayed menu in the OPXZ mode window.
NOTE
• You can also perform the close store operation at each satellite.
• When the close store operation is performed, the data remaining in the T-LOG buffers of all the
satellites is collected by the master.
• When a transmission error occurs during the close store operation, the operation is regarded
as normally terminated if the system retry function* has been disabled by programming. When
the master has been programmed to enable the system retry function, it displays the machine
number of the satellite that has encountered the error. Selecting the displayed machine
number will display a prompt to retry the close store operation.
* For the system retry function, see pages 55–56.

4. Clerk system
In the IRC system, the following two types of clerk file systems are available: a centralized system and an
individual system. In the centralized clerk file system, the master manages transaction data on clerks within
the IRC system. In the individual clerk file system, each machine manages its clerk transaction data.
In choosing the type of clerk system, consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
(1) Centralized clerk file system
Centralized clerk file system – without the overlapped clerk function
In this system, each clerk file is under the centralized control of the master and programming for clerks has
to be done only at the master. When a clerk signs on at a satellite, a communication between the satellite
and the master will begin.
Centralized clerk file system
– with the overlapped clerk function and without overlapped clerk save files
In this system, each overlapped clerk file is under the centralized control of the master and programming for
clerks has to be done only at the master. When a clerk signs on at a satellite, a communication between the
satellite and the master will begin.
When the clerk signs off, the overlapped clerk data is transferred to the master and saved in its overlapped
clerk file.
Centralized clerk file system
– with the overlapped clerk function and overlapped clerk save files
In this system, each overlapped clerk file is under the centralized control of the master and programming for
clerks has to be done only at the master. The way data flows differs depending on whether or not the clerk
signs on at the same satellite as the one used in his or her previous operation. (The data which flows in the
system includes not only clerk data but also GLU data. In the figure on the next page, the GLU/ROOM GLU
data flows are omitted.)
NOTE
At the master, you can generate a report listing clerks who are currently in sign-on state at the
machines in the IRC system. (For further details on the clerk sign-on report, see page 10.)
7
1) When the clerk signs on at a machine other than the one used in his or her previous operation:
In this case, the overlapped clerk data is sent from the master to the satellite (transfer of overlapped clerk
data).
2) When the clerk signs on at the same satellite as the one used in his or her previous operation:
In this case, no data transfer occurs between the master and the satellite but the data stored in the save file
of the satellite is called back. This permits quicker data look-up than above in 1).
In both cases, the overlapped clerk data is saved in the
master's overlapped clerk file as well as the satellite's
overlapped clerk data save file upon sign-off operation.
Whether the centralized clerk file system is used with or
without an overlapped clerk save file, the master's
overlapped clerk file can be accessed from any machine
in the IRC system.

NOTE
2)
• For selecting whether your system should have the overlapped clerk function or not, and whether
it should have overlapped clerk save files or not, consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
• To use the overlapped clerk function in the IRC system, the overlapped clerk function must be
enabled for all the master and satellite machines.
(2) Individual clerk file system
In this system, each clerk file is under the control of a satellite and you have to do programming for
clerks at each satellite. Even if a programmed clerk signs on at a satellite, a communication with the
master will not begin.
The overlapped clerk file in a satellite can only be accessed by the satellite itself. The data in the clerk
files at all satellites will be collected by the master each time a consolidated report is issued.

5. Sign-on operation (clerk assignment) (REG mode/MGR mode)
The sign-on operation is intended to assign a clerk to a machine (satellite/master) and enable him or her to
make registrations at the machine.
If a clerk successfully signs on at a machine, his or her clerk code appears on the LCD of the machine.
Sign-on procedure
(This procedure is the same as for clerk assignment at a standalone machine.)
Clerk assignment
• For the contactless clerk key system:
Set a corresponding clerk key to the clerk switch.
* The contactless clerk key is optional.
• For the clerk entry key system:
Touch a corresponding clerk entry key on the screen.
• For the WMF clerk key system (option):
Insert a corresponding WMF clerk key into the WMF clerk switch.
* The WMF clerk key is not a SHARP product.
• For the code entry system:

• For the magnetic card reading system (option):
Swipe a corresponding clerk card through the magnetic card reader.
* The magnetic clerk card is optional.
If a secret code is programmed, the secret code entry window will pop up. Enter the secret code and touch
the [ENTER] key.
NOTE
NOTE
• The sign-on operation can be made only for one clerk at a time.
• Every clerk that is programmed for the system can sign on at any satellite. (Centralized clerk file system)
• A clerk, who has signed on at a machine using a contactless clerk key, can not sign on at any other
machine in the system until he or she signs off at the original machine. (Centralized clerk file system)
• If a clerk, who has signed on at a machine in the system using the clerk entry key system or
the code entry system, signs on at any other machine in the system, he or she is automatically
signed off at the original machine. (Centralized clerk file system)
• In case of trouble, the sign-on state can be cleared at the master. (Please consult your
authorized SHARP dealer for further details.)
Your POS terminal can provide the clerk + cashier system instead of current system (clerk only
system). If you want to change the system, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
Cashier assignment (Clerk + cashier system)
• For the cashier entry key system:
Touch a corresponding cashier key on the screen.
• For the code entry system:

7. Sign-off operation
(cancellation of clerk assignment) (REG mode/MGR mode)
The sign-off operation is intended to cancel the assignment of a clerk to a machine and terminate his or her
registration operation.
The sign-off operation at a machine (master or satellite) can be done only for the clerk who is in sign-on
state at the machine and not in the middle of a registration entry.
Sign-off procedure
• For the contactless clerk key system:

9. Look-up and updating of the GLU file
In the IRC system, the following two types of GLU file allocation system are available: a centralized system
and an individual system.
In choosing the type of GLU file system, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
(1) Centralized GLU file system
In this system, only the master has control over GLU data stored in its GLU file. All satellites in the IRC
system can access the GLU file in the master for registration.
The GLU file is accessed by satellites for the following purposes:
• New order or reorder
• Payment entry or temporary finalization
• Bill printing
• Bill transfer/bill totalizing
• Bill separating
• Customer ordering
• Hotel transfer (Transaction transfer to ROOM GLU)
There are two types of GLU data transmission.
1) The GLU data is transmitted from the master to a satellite for GLU file look up (in case of a new
order/reorder). In this case, the GLU reserve counter* is retained at the master.
* The reserve counter reserves some records of GLU files to prevent a “LACKING MEMORY” error
in finalization.
2) The GLU data is transmitted from a satellite to the master upon finalization of a transaction (in case
of payment entry or temporary finalization).
The data transmitted from the satellite is once saved in the temporary GLU data receiving file and
then updated in the GLU file of the master. In this case, the GLU reserve counter is cleared at the
master.
If a satellite looks up the GLU file in the master or asks the master to update the file, the backup master
performs the same process as the master.
(2) Individual GLU file system
In this system, the master and each satellite individually control their own GLU data stored in their GLU files
and look up them for registration. Therefore, no inline communications are made regarding GLU data.
15
10. PLU/EAN stock control
In the IRC system, the following two systems for PLU/EAN stock control are available: a centralized system
and an individual system.
In choosing the type of PLU/EAN stock control system, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
Centralized system
Preset stock data is stored only in the master. Stock data in each satellite must be zero before a PLU/EAN
entry is made.
When a consolidated report is generated, stock data in respective satellites is consolidated into the stock file
in the master and calculated there.
The stock data calculated at the master is displayed or printed out and the stock data in each satellite is
reset to zero at the same time.
Individual system
The master and satellites store their own preset stock data. When a consolidated report is generated, the
stock data in the master and satellites is consolidated and displayed or printed out.
NOTE
16
In the individual system, the consolidation does not affect the stock data in the master.
11. T-LOG polling
All REG-mode transaction data in each satellite is saved in its T-LOG buffer. T-LOG polling is a data
collecting system in which the master collects data from the T-LOG buffers in satellites.
A request for T-LOG polling is issued from the satellite to the master when the number of data records in its
T-LOG buffer exceeds a predetermined number.
As the master detects such a request, it starts collecting T-LOG buffer data. After collecting data from one
satellite, the master waits for a preset time and starts collecting data from another satellite. In T-LOG polling,
the data transmitted to the master is stored in the corresponding file.
The data flow in T-LOG polling is shown below.
Master
(4)
(1)
Satellite A
(2)
(3)
(5)
Satellite B
Satellite C
Satellite D
Polling sequence (see the figure above.)
(1) Satellite A makes a request for polling.
(2) The master detects the request and starts collecting T-LOG data from satellite A.
(3) The T-LOG data is sent to the master.
(4) After receiving T-LOG data from satellite A, the master waits for a preset time.
(5) The master detects a request from another satellite (B, C or D) and starts polling for it.
You can specify in the PGM2 mode whether the entry function of a satellite is disabled (LOCK) or enabled
(CONTINUE) when the T-LOG buffer is full.
If it is disabled, an error message “T-LOG FULL” will be displayed and you are not allowed to make any
entry in the REG/MGR mode at the satellite until the error message is cleared.
If it is enabled, you can continue entries but cannot save the entered data. Even if data is entered after the
T-LOG buffer becomes full, the previous data saved in the file will not be erased.
NOTE
• Depending on a remaining capacity of T-LOG buffer, T-LOG full indicator “T” appears on the
top right of the screen in a colored square: green for less than 20 percent remaining, yellow for
less than 10 percent remaining and red for less than 5 percent remaining.
• For the programming whether or not to lock a registration entry when the T-LOG file is full, see
the UP-3515 Instruction Manual.
• For the T-LOG polling between the master and MWS, please consult your authorized SHARP
dealer.
17
12. PLU/EAN data control
In the IRC system, the following two systems for PLU/EAN data control are available: a centralized system
and an individual system.
In choosing the type of PLU/EAN data control system, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
Centralized system
PLU/EAN sales data is centrally controlled by the master. PLU/EAN sales data which is temporarily stored
in the T-LOG buffer of a satellite is sent to the master by T-LOG polling.
Individual system
The master and satellites control their own PLU/EAN sales data. PLU/EAN sales reports can be individually
generated at each machine. Consolidation of PLU/EAN sales data can be achieved by generating the
consolidated PLU/EAN report at the master.
NOTE
The learning function enables the operator at a satellite to set the unit price, associated
department and auto-deletion/non-deletion choice for an item whose code is undefined in the
PLU/EAN file, and to register the transaction. (For further information on the learning function,
see the UP-3515 Instruction Manual.)
If the satellite has no dynamic EAN file, the data on the EAN item which has been set using the
learning function is stored in the PLU/EAN main file to update the file.
If the satellite has a dynamic EAN file, the data is stored in the dynamic EAN file to update the file.
The data which has been set using the learning function in the training mode at a satellite is also
stored in its T-LOG buffer.
For the data flow, see the following figures.

13. Price change function
When a preset data (unit price and associated department) of an EAN item is changed at a satellite or the
master using the price change function, its PLU/EAN main file or dynamic EAN file is updated with the new
data. Immediately after this, the new data is automatically distributed to all other machines to update their
PLU/EAN main files or dynamic EAN files which contain the same EAN code. The updated file varies
depending on dynamic file setting for the IRC system.
The EAN data changed at a satellite is also stored in its T-LOG buffer and collected through T-LOG polling
by the master to update its PLU/EAN main file or dynamic EAN file in case the updated EAN data at the
satellite is not automatically distributed to the master due to dynamic file setting for the IRC system.
For further information on the price change function, see the UP-3515 instruction manual.
For the data flow, see the following figures.

If a transmission error occurs during automatic distribution of updated data to other machines after a
price is changed using the price change function at a machine, the machine number of the terminal
which causes the error and the type of error are printed out at the sending machine. In this case, the
system retry function can be used if it is enabled. (For the system retry function, see pages 55–56.)
14. Customer data control
In the IRC system, customer data is centrally controlled by the master. Customer data which is temporarily
stored in the T-LOG buffer of a satellite is sent to the master by T-LOG polling and controlled by the master.
(For further information on T-LOG polling, see page 17.)
15. Communication with a remote printer (option)
When a remote printer is included in the inline system, order data is output to the remote printer according
to the remote printer assignment.
The remote printer, also called a kitchen printer, is used to print all or part of the data entered at a machine.
Although kitchen may be one of the typical settings for the convenient use of the remote printer, it can also
be used at any location.
If a remote printer is assigned to a department or PLU, the information on the department or PLU is output
to the remote printer when the [NBAL] or [FINAL] key is touched or the transaction is finalized at a terminal.
The data which can be output to a remote printer is as follows:
1) Item text
2) Quantity*
3) Unit price*/Price*
4) Amount*
5) PLU/department code*
6) Free text*
7) Number of guests*
* Whether to print or not is selectable.
Second (back-up) remote printer
A second remote printer can be assigned to each remote printer for automatic back-up.
If an error occurs during data output to a remote printer, the data is output to the second remote printer
assigned to it.
When an error occurs during data output to the second remote printer, the data is output to the receipt
printer if there is one set up for the terminal.
Up to two remote printers can be preset to print data on each item (PLU or department).
If two printers are preset to print data on each item, the data is simultaneously output to both printers.
If either of these printers encounters an error, the data is output to its backup printer.
If the backup printer encounters an error, the data is output to the receipt printer if there is one set up for the
terminal.
NOTE
• For the programming of remote printers (KP#1-KP#9), see pages 43–45.
• Crate entry is not output to a remote printer.
21
16. Rerouting print data
In restaurants or the like, every terminal does not need an external printer (a receipt/report printer, journal
printer, bill printer or kitchen printer).
One external printer connected by an RS-232 cable can be shared by two or more UP-3515 machines.

2 Consolidated and Individual Reports
The system can generate two types of sales reports: consolidated reports (reports on all or specified
machines in the system) and individual reports (reports on individual machines). At the master, you can
generate consolidated reports on all or specified machines in the system. Certain consolidated reports can
also be generated at the back-up master under certain conditions. Individual reports can be generated at
any machine in the IRC system: each satellite, the master and the back-up master.
1. Operating modes
X1/Z1 mode: Daily sales reading (X1) and resetting (Z1) reports
X2/Z2 mode: Periodic consolidated sales reading (X2) and resetting (Z2) reports
OPXZ mode: Individual clerk/cashier daily sales reading (X) and resetting (Z) reports
23
2. Consolidated reports – master/back-up master
(1) Report generation procedure
To generate various reports, use the following procedure, referring to the list of consolidated reports
on the following pages.
1. Enter the required operating mode (OPXZ, X1/Z1 or X2/Z2) from the mode selection window.
2. Select “SYSTEM READING” or “SYSTEM RESETTING” from the displayed menu depending on your

4. Resetting reports in a system with no save file
In a system which has no save file and has been programmed so as to automatically lock satellites after
resetting when general resetting, hourly resetting, cashier resetting, clerk resetting (only the case of
individual clerk file system) or daily net resetting report is taken, the data in the satellites concerned is not
cleared. In this case, the satellites will be locked after resetting, and any entry will not be allowed in the
REG/MGR mode there.
Generation of the same resetting report in the locked state will print a copy symbol on the report.
The satellites can be unlocked by generating a corresponding consolidated resetting report at the master, or
by manual clearing of corresponding sales memories of the satellites.
NOTE
30
Your dealer can program whether or not to have save files, and whether or not to lock the
satellites. For details, consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
5. Clerk report
As stated earlier (see pages 7-8), there are two systems for collecting clerk sales data: a centralized system
and an individual system.
(1) Centralized clerk file system
In this system, the transaction data on a clerk in each satellite will be transmitted to the master each
time the clerk signs off. Individual reports on both individual clerk and full clerk are not available at any
machine in the IRC system. At the master, you can generate consolidated full clerk and individual clerk
reports.
At each satellite, you can generate consolidated individual clerk reports.
If a consolidated individual clerk report is taken at a satellite while a clerk is in sign-on state at the
machine, the data on transactions being handled by the clerk or cashier is also added and printed out.
If a consolidated full clerk Z report is taken at the master while a clerk signs on at a satellite, that
clerk’s sales data are excluded from the report and resetting operation for the clerk can not be made.
In this case, the message “IS SIGNED ON” and a machine number of the satellite is printed on the
report as shown below.

NOTE
For detailed information on report items, see the UP-3515 Instruction Manual.
31
(2) Individual clerk file system
In this system, you can generate consolidated reports on full clerk or individual clerk at the master
only. At each machine, you can generate an individual X or Z report on transactions made by an
individual clerk or all clerks assigned to the machine.
If the system has no save file, the clerk for whom an individual Z report has been generated is not
allowed to make registrations in the REG mode. This condition, in which registrations by the clerk are
disallowed, is canceled when his or her sales data is consolidated and reset at the master or when the
sales data is manually cleared. (For the manual clearing operation, see page 54.)
When an X or Z report for the locked clerk is generated again, the COPY mark will be printed in the
report as shown below. (This COPY mark will not appear when the system has a save file.)

NOTE
32
• For selecting whether your system should have a save file or not, consult your authorized
SHARP dealer.
• For the setting of the individual resetting data clear at the time of consolidation general
resetting, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
6. Cashier report
The cashier file management method in the IRC system employs individual system. A cashier who is
assigned to a machine can carry out registrations and other operations at that machine. In this system, you
can generate consolidated reports on full cashier or individual cashier at the master only. At each machine,
you can generate an individual X or Z report on transactions made by an individual cashier or all cashiers
assigned to the machine.
If the system has no save file, the cashier for whom an individual Z report has been generated is not allowed
to make registrations in the REG mode. This condition, in which registrations by the cashier are disallowed,
is canceled when his or her sales data is consolidated and reset at the master or when the sales data is
manually cleared. (For the manual clearing operation, see page 54.)
When an X or Z report for the locked cashier is generated again, the COPY mark will be printed in the
report. (This COPY mark will not appear when the system has a save file.)
When the system has a save file, the data in the save file and that in the sales file are summed up for
consolidation.
NOTE
• The above explanation applies when the cashier system is used in addition to the clerk system.
For the selection and settings of the clerk + cashier system or clerk only system, please consult
your authorized SHARP dealer.
• For the setting of the individual resetting data clear at the time of consolidation general
resetting, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.

7. Reports that can be generated when the Compulsory
Cash/Check Declaration (CCD) function is enabled
Each machine can be programmed to enable the Compulsory Cash/Check Declaration (CCD) function. This
function compels the operator to enter the cash/check amount in the drawer just before an individual
clerk/cashier Z/Z1 report, all clerk/cashier Z1 report, or a general Z1 report is issued. Unless CCD entries
compelled by the CCD function have been made, all the reports can not be generated.
To take a consolidated general Z1 report in case of compulsory CCD function (by terminal), the following
two conditions are applied.
1) If the CCD DATA is not entered in the master and the master is included in appointment of machine
number, a consolidated general Z1 report can not be generated.
2) If the CCD DATA is not entered in the satellite, a consolidated general Z1 report can not be generated.
In the case of taking a consolidated individual clerk Z1 report and a consolidated all clerk Z1 report under
centralized clerk file system, CCD entry is required only at the master just before the report generation.
In all other cases under compulsory CCD function, you can not generate a consolidated Z1 reports
(individual clerk, individual cashier, all clerk, all cashier and general report) at the master unless CCD
entries have been made at all the machines in the IRC system to generate the corresponding individual
Z1(Z) report at each machine beforehand.
You can not generate some types of reports depending on a selected CCD entry type as shown in the table
below.

4 System Back-Up
1. How the IRC back-up system works
The IRC system incorporates a back-up system.
One of the satellites can be designated to serve as a back-up master.
For the setup of a back-up master in your IRC system, please consult your authorized SHARP dealer.
When both the master and back-up master are in order, the system works in the following sequence:
Master
Back-up master
1) Updated data
2) Acknowledgment signal
3) Updated data
Satellite
4) Acknowledgment signal
1) Each satellite sends updated GLU data (and clerk data*) to the master.
2) The master receives the data and sends back an acknowledgment signal to the satellite.
3) The satellite sends the updated data to the back-up master.
4) The back-up master receives the data and sends back an acknowledgment signal to the satellite.
*Only for the centralized clerk file system
If the master breaks down, the back-up master serves as the master after a master declaration is made at
the back-up master. If the back-up master breaks down, updated data transmission to it can be stopped by
a master declaration at the master. When the master or back-up master recovers from the breakdown, it
resumes its function as the master or back-up master by the recovery declaring operation.
49
2. Master declaration

2. System retry function
If a transmission job from the master to a satellite is not performed successfully, the master either
terminates the job immediately or enters command entry awaiting state depending on whether the system
retry function has been disabled or enabled. When the system retry function has been enabled, the master
awaits entry of a command and retries access depending on the commands as explained on the following
page.
System retry function is also available at satellites depending on a type of transmission error.
This function is used in the following cases:
• The master has failed to download preset or updated data to all or some of the satellites.
• The master has failed to collect sales report data from all or some of the satellites.
• The satellite has failed to download data to other machines.
• A clerk has failed to sign off at a satellite.*
Whether the system retry function is enabled or disabled when a transmission error occurs is
programmed both at the master and a satellite. (See “5. Specifying whether to enable or disable the
system retry function when a transmission error occurs” on page 41.)
*When a clerk has failed to sign off at a satellite for some reason (e.g. the master is busy), the RETRY
and ABORT commands are available but the IGNORE command is not.
(1) When the system retry function is disabled
The master terminates the transmission job immediately in the following two ways.
If none of the satellites have successfully transmitted data, the transmission is regarded as having
ended with an error, which is equivalent to ABORT as discussed on the following page.
If there is any satellite which has successfully transmitted data, the transmission is regarded as either
successful or unsuccessful depending on the type of transmission job. In this case, the transmission
regarded as successful and the one regarded as unsuccessful are equivalent to IGNORE and ABORT,
respectively, both of which are explained on the following page.

(2) When the system retry function is enabled
If a transmission error relating to a satellite occurs, the relevant window will appear on the display of
the master and the master awaits entry of one of the following commands:
A) RETRY command (selection from the menu)
B) ABORT command (selection from the menu)
C) IGNORE command (selection from the menu)
A) RETRY command:
When RETRY is selected, the master retries to access the satellite; however, depending on the
type of error (command error, etc.), it is obvious that the master would fail to access it again. If this
type of error occurs during transmission, the master may not retry.
B) ABORT command:
When ABORT is selected, the master terminates access to the satellite and regards the
transmission as having unsuccessfully ended. However, in the case of program data downloading,
the ABORT command may be issued only when all the satellites accessed are in the error state.
C) IGNORE command:
When IGNORE is selected, the master terminates access to the satellite and regards the
transmission as having successfully ended, and then prints only transmitted data.
If no satellite has successfully transmitted data, the IGNORE command may be issued to the
master in the case of sales data inquiry (X report), though the result is not printed.
[Retry during sales data inquiry]
During resetting, the ABORT command may be given only when every accessed satellite is in the
error state. The IGNORE and RETRY commands are available unconditionally.
