Label Installation
Follow the instructions below and the illustrations to install labels. (It is not necessary to
unlock the printhead to load labels). The labels can be loaded in a stripped mode or
unstripped mode. The default is stripped mode. This must also match the DELIVERY
option in Printer Setup.
1. Remove the Printer Door.
2. Press the Release Lever and pull the printer forward.
3. Install the labels on the supply spool.
4. Press the release lever. If installing for unstripped mode, skip to Step 7.
5. Remove the liner take-up spool from the printer mechanism.
6. Slide the two halves of the liner take-up spool apart and discard any spent liner.
7. Insert the end of the paper into the rear chute and through the Gap Sensor. Feed
labels into the chute until they stop at the platen roller.
8. Touch the ENTER or ENTER/PRINT key to feed the labels, while gently pushing the
label stock into the rear chute until the label feeds out the front of the mechanism. If
the label stock will not feed out the front, there may be a label jam inside the
mechanism. In this case, unlock and lift the printhead to clear the jam. If the
delivery method is unstripped you are done loading labels and can push the printer
back in until it locks and install the printer cover.
9. If you are using loading labels in a stripped delivery mode, insert the label liner
through the fingers of one half of the liner take-up spool.
10. Reassemble the two halves of the liner take-up spool.
11. Reinstall the liner take-up spool into the printer mechanism.
12. Wind the spool upwards until the slack is taken up on the liner. When complete,
slide the printer back inside until the locking lever engages and reinstall the printer
cover.

Touchscreen Operation
Touchscreen Operation
Do not press on the Touchscreen. Use
only a light touch for key entry.
Do not use a hard or sharp object to
make key entries. This can scratch or
damage the Touchscreen and lens.
The Model 8461 Touchscreen is both a display and keyboard. The keyboard part of the
Touchscreen does not use conventional keys, but instead senses where the fingertip is
placed on the screen for key input. Only a light touch within the key area (Figure 2-5) is
required.
For best results, the fingertip must enter at a right angle (Figure 2-3) to touch the key
area, and then must be withdrawn beyond the black lens surrounding the Touchscreen
(Figure 2-5) before making the next key entry. When touching the keys, make sure no
other finger drags on the screen. This would prevent the Model 8461 from correctly
sensing the fingertip.
Your thumb may not produce good results, especially if it is larger than the key (Figure
2-4). Wearing gloves may also not produce the best results if the gloves are larger than
the key area. Remember; do not press on the keys. Just a light touch is all that is
required.

LED Lens
Withdraw fingertip past the black
lens after each key entry.

If the network is local, arbitrary
numbers can be selected for the IP
Address. An IP Address consists of
a group of four numbers from 0 to
255, separated by periods, for
example: 207.142.140.101.
Do not duplicate numbers on the
network. To enter the numbers, key
in the numbers starting at the MSD
(left Most Significant Digit) number.
The periods are not entered in this
procedure. Enter numbers lower
than 100 with preceding zeros
(Example: 10 is entered as 010).
To exit without saving, touch
CLEAR.
The network configuration is set up for the Client (Software Revision 5.5 or later) on the
Unit Setup Screen under NETWORK SETUP.
Note: For older versions, the network configuration is accessed under the “Calibrate/
Install Unit” button. To enter setup mode, touch SETUP, UNIT, NETWORK SETUP.
The last three Items are RemotePlus functions only. Standard versions will not display a
third screen.
Power the unit down after changing
the IP address for the new changes
to take effect.
On Client Software Revision 5.5,
the client will ping the network for
the Scale IP that it is configured for.
If a duplicate IP is found on the
network, the message “DUPLICATE
IP ADDR” will display. You must
then change the IP address to a
unique address on the network
before the client can access
the master database.
Figure 3-9: Network Setup Screens
The network setup functions are described in the following section.
3-7
METTLER TOLEDO Model 8461 User's Guide
On Software Revision 5.5, the client
will ping the network for the Scale IP
that it is configured for. If a duplicate IP
is found on the network, the message
“DUPLICATE IP ADDR” will display. You
must then change the IP address to a
unique address on the network before
the client can access the master
database.
You must first select the network boot type, Manual or Automatic. Automatic is the
default. Automatic will use DHCP to automatically obtain the network boot information
from a DHCP server. The parameter details are explained below.
NETWORK
When Automatic is selected, the DHCP and BOOTP features will
be used. The “SERVER IP”, “SERVER MAC”, “SUBNET MASK”,
“ROUTER”, “DHCP SERVER”, and “DNS SERVER” fields will display
but cannot be changed. The administrator must make sure the
correct data is available on the network server and the DHCP
server points each client to the correct locations. With this setup,
administrators can abstract and group scales in logical groups.
Each group can have their own software and data settings,
eliminating the need to configure each scale individually.
If Manual is selected, then the DHCP feature is disabled and the
TCP/IP parameters and BOOTP parameters must be entered
manually. The “Server MAC” field will display but no changes are
allowed. The “DHCP Server” and “DNS Server” fields will display
but changes are not allowed to these fields.
If a scale is set to boot Manual, then there is no network query for
boot information when the scale powers up. Booting follows the
path of whatever data configured on the scale. The administrator
must access each scale with a manual setting on an individual
basis. This feature will allow the ease of administration that a
centralized, networked based boot system provides, but not
require DHCP services. The Boot sequence of a scale set to a
manual Boot Sequence will follow the boot sequence of the
Automatic setting excluding the DHCP portion. In addition, this
also allows a remote person (administrator, field support), to
update software and data on the scale through a ‘runonce’ boot
sequence change. This would allow them the ability, with the
coordination of scale network administrator, to change
configurations and software from a remote location.

This is the standalone IP address. If the “Network” is set to
“Automatic” this field cannot be changed. If the “Network” is set to
“Manual” then this field may be changed. The IP address is
entered as four sets of numbers called octets consisting of three
digits. The address is entered one octet at a time. A decimal point
will appear after every three numbers are entered. When there are
only 1 or 2 digits in an octet, fill in with zeros. For example, 1 is
entered as 001. The default value for this field is
255.255.255.000.
Used in the standalone mode. This is the TCP/IP Host Port
number used to communicate with the Standalone scale.
This is the local domain name to given to the standalone scale.
Devices on the network can reference the scale by using this
name.

device has a unique 6-byte MAC address. This field is displayed
but cannot be changed.

when accessing devices outside of the local network. If the
“Network” is set to “Automatic” this field cannot be changed. If the

The By-Weight PLU Edit Screen is shown below. By-Weight PLUs can be priced in three
ways:
1. Priced "Per Pound" - Typically weighed items are priced per the pound. The weight
multiplied by the unit price equals the total price of the product to the customer.
2. Priced "Per Fraction of a Pound" (fractional) - The item may also be priced by the
fraction of the pound (where legal and desired). Pricing per 1/4 pound and per 1/2
pound is available.
3. "Pounds for" price - The PLU may be sold with pounds-for pricing (rather than
price per pound). (e.g. 2 pounds for $1.00).

when pressed. If set to NO, the PRINT key will on print one label per item.
