ATTENTION

The product that you have purchased may contain a battery that may be recyclable. At the end of its useful life, under various state and local laws, it may be illegal to dispose of the battery into the municipal waste system.

Check with your local solid waste officials for details concerning recycling options or proper disposal .

Precaution Statements

Follow these safety, servicing and ESD precautions to prevent damage and to protect against potential hazards such as electrical shock.

1. Be sure that all built-in protective devices are replaced. Restore any missing protective shields.

2. When reinstalling the chassis and its assemblies, be sure to restore all protective devices, including nonmetallic control knobs and compartment covers.

3. Make sure there are no cabinet openings through which people - particularly children - might insert fingers and contact dangerous voltages.

Such openings include excessively wide cabinet ventilation slots and improperly fitted covers and drawers.

4. Design Alteration Warning:

Never alter or add to the mechanical or electrical design of the SECR. Unauthorized alterations might create a safety hazard. Also, any design changes or additions will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

5. Components, parts and wiring that appear to have overheated or that are otherwise damaged should be replaced with parts that meet the original specifications. Always determine the cause of damage or over- heating, and correct any potential hazards.

CAUTION

There is the danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.

6. Observe the original lead dress, especially near the following areas: sharp edges, and especially the

AC and high voltage supplies. Always inspect for pinched, out-of-place, or frayed wiring. Do not change the spacing between components and the printed circuit board. Check the AC power cord for damage. Make sure that leads and components do not touch thermally hot parts.

7. Product Safety Notice:

Some electrical and mechanical parts have special safety-related characteristics that might not be obvious from visual inspection. These safety features and the protection they give might be lost if the replacement component differs from the original - even if the replacement is rated for higher voltage, wattage, etc.

Components that are critical for safety are indicated in the circuit diagram by shading, ( ) or ( ). Use replacement components that have the same ratings, especially for flame resistance and dielectric strength specifications. A replacement part that does not have the same safety characteristics as the original might create shock, fire or other hazards.

Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer.

ATTENTION ll y a danger d’explosion s’il y a remplacement incorrect de la batterie.

Remplacer uniquement avec une batterie du même type ou d’un type équivalent recommandé par le constructeur.

Mettre au rebut les batteries usagées conformément aux instructions du fabricant.

Dispose used batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

SAFETY NOTICE:

"For pluggable equipment, the socket-outlet shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible."

WARNING: First read the-Safety Precautions-section of this manual. If some unforeseen circumstance creates a conflict between the servicing and safety precautions, always follow the safety precautions.

WARNING: An electrolytic capacitor installed with the wrong polarity might explode.

1. Servicing precautions are printed on the cabinet.

Follow them.

2. Always unplug the units AC power cord from the

AC power source before attempting to:

(a) Remove or reinstall any component or assembly

(b) Disconnect an electrical plug or connector

(c) Connect a test component in parallel with an electrolytic capacitor

3. Some components are raised above the printed circuit board for safety. An insulation tube or tape is sometimes used. The internal wiring is sometimes clamped to prevent contact with thermally hot components. Reinstall all such elements to their original position.

4. After servicing, always check that the screws, components and wiring have been correctly reinstalled. Make sure that the portion around the serviced part has not been damaged.

5. Check the insulation between the blades of the AC plug and accessible conductive parts (examples: metal panels and input terminals).

6. Insulation Checking Procedure: Disconnect the power cord from the AC source and turn the power switch ON. Connect an insulation resistance meter

(500V) to the blades of AC plug.

The insulation resistance between each blade of the

AC plug and accessible conductive parts (see above) should be greater than 1 megohm.

7. Never defeat any of the B+ voltage interlocks.

Do not apply AC power to the unit (or any of its assemblies) unless all solid-state heat sinks are correctly installed.

8. Always connect an instrument’s ground lead to the instrument chassis ground before connecting the positive lead; always remove the instrument’s ground lead last.

1-3 Precautions for Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDs)

1. Some semiconductor (solid state) devices are easily damaged by static electricity. Such components are called Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDs); examples include integrated circuits and some fieldeffect transistors. The following techniques will reduce the occurrence of component damage caused by static electricity.

2. Immediately before handling any semiconductor components or assemblies, drain the electrostatic charge from your body by touching a known earth ground. Alternatively, wear a discharging wriststrap device. (Be sure to remove it prior to applying power - this is an electric shock precaution.)

3. After removing an ESD-equipped assembly, place it on a conductive surface such as aluminum foil to prevent accumulation of electrostatic charge.

7. Do not remove a replacement ESD from its protective package until you are ready to install it.

Most replacement ESDs are packaged with leads that are electrically shorted together by conductive foam, aluminum foil or other conductive materials.

8. Immediately before removing the protective material from the leads of a replacement ESD, touch the protective material to the chassis or circuit assembly into which the device will be installed.

9. Minimize body motions when handling unpackaged replacement ESDs. Motions such as brushing clothes together, or lifting a foot from a carpeted floor can generate enough static electricity to damage an ESD.

4. Do not use Freon-propelled chemicals. These can generate electrical charges that damage ESDs.

5. Use only a grounded-tip soldering iron when soldering or unsoldering ESDs.

6. Use only an anti-static solder removal device.

Many solder removal devices are not rated as antistatic; these can accumulate sufficient electrical charge to damage ESDs.

Ram Clearing

All Memory Clear

RAM clearing the cash register erases all programming and totals. Use this program the first time the cash register is programmed.

WARNING: This is a one time procedure. Do not repeat this procedure after the cash register is programmed; it causes all programs and totals to be erased.

Follow this procedure to clear totals from memory:

1. Unplug the ECR.

2. Turn the control lock to the S position. (The S position is a hidden position one position clockwise from the PRG position.)

3. Press and hold the CHARGE key on key board and plug the ECR into a power source.

4. When the buzzer beeps release the CHARGE key. Press the upper left key of the keyboard, then the lower left key, then the upper right key, and finally press the lower right key.

Initial Clear

CAUTION: Do not share this information with unauthorized users. Distribute the C key only to those you may want to perform this function.

The initial clear function allows you to exit any register activity and return to a beginning or cleared state. Any transaction that is in progress will be exited and totals for that transaction will not be updated.

Here are some reasons you may want to perform an initial clear:

 The register is in an unknown state, and you wish to exit the current program or transaction without following normal procedures.

 An initial clear may be necessary as part of servicing, or troubleshooting.

To Perform an Initial Clear:

1. Unplug the ECR.

2. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

3. Press and hold the key position where the SUBTOTAL key is located on the default keyboard layout.

4. Continue to hold the SUBTOTAL key and turn the power switch ON.

5. The message “****** INITIAL CLEAR ******” prints when the initial clear is complete.

This procedure will not affect register programming, or clear previously stored totals in ECR memory.

Quick Program Guide

Introduction

First, refer to “Getting Started” on page 9 to unbox, clear memory, and load the paper on your

SAM4s ER-180T. Next, you will need to perform a few basic programs to get your register up and running:

1. Set the date and time.

2. Program your tax rate.

3. Set departments for open or preset and taxable or non-taxable operation.

Your register is now ready for most merchant environments.

There are many other programs described in this manual that allow you to customize your cash register program. Read the manual carefully and if necessary, consult with your SAM4s dealer for assistance.

Tax Percentage Rate Programming

Most sales taxes can be programmed by entering a tax percentage rate. Use the instructons in this section to set your rate. In some cases you may find that tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly the tax chart that apply in your area. If this is the case, you must enter your tax using tax table programming. This method will match tax collection exactly to the break points of your tax table. See the “Tax Table Programming” on page 50.

Important Note: After you have entered your tax program, test for accuracy by entering several transactions of different dollar amounts. Carefully check to make sure the tax charged by the cash register matches the tax amounts on the printed tax chart for your area. As a merchant, you are responsible for accurate tax collection. If the cash register is not calculating tax accurately, or if you cannot program your tax properly from the information in this manual, contact your local SAM4s dealer for assistance.

If you need to collect separate state and local sales taxes, you can program up to four separate tax rates.

1. Turn the control lock to the P position.

2. Enter 53 and press the SUBTOTAL key.

3. Enter the tax rate including the decimal in a 5-digit format, i.e. enter 5% as 05.000 or enter 10 ½ % as 10.500.

4. Enter 0 for an add-on tax, or enter 2 for a value added tax.

5. Enter the numeral that represents the number of the tax, i.e. enter 1 for tax 1, 2 for tax

2, 3 for tax 3 or 4 for tax 4.

6. Press the X/TIME key.

7. If needed, enter the data for another tax rate. Press the CASH/TEND key to end tax programming. The tax program information will print.

Split Tender

Split tendering is paying for one transaction by more than one payment method. For example, a $22.00 sale could be split so $10.00 is paid in cash, and the remaining $12.00 is paid by a check. If necessary, you can make several different payments.

1. Register the items you wish to sell.

2. Enter the amount of cash tendered by the customer. For example, enter $10.00 and press CASH/TEND:

Cash Declaration

If compulsory cash declaration is required, you must declare the count of the cash drawer prior to taking X or Z financial and clerk reports.

You can enter the cash drawer total in one step, or to facilitate the counting of the cash drawer, you can enter each type of bill/coin and checks separately and let the register act as an adding machine. You can also use the X/TIME key to multiply the denomination of currency times your count.

Either way you choose to enter cash, the register will compare your declaration with the expected cash and check in drawer totals and print the over or short amounts on the report.

For example:

1. Turn the control lock to the X or Z position (depending upon the type of report you are taking.)

2. Enter 90 and press the SUBTOTAL key.

All departments are nontaxable and open, without entry limits by default status programming of "00000000".

All system options are set to 0 in default programming, unless otherwise noted. Change only the options that will deviate from default programming. There is no need to re-enter an option status of 0, since 0 is its original setting.

Tax Table Programming

See “Tax Percentage Rate Programming” on page 19 to set a simple tax percentage.

In some cases, a tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly the tax charts that apply in your area (even if the tax chart is based on a percentage). In these cases, we recommend that you enter your tax using tax table programming. This method will match tax collection exactly to the break points of your tax table.

Before programming, obtain a copy of the tax table you wish to program. You will need the printed tax table if you wish to determine the break point entries yourself.

Note: You can enter up to 60 break points.

Determining Break Point Entries

1. Examine the printed tax table for the tax you are programming.

2. Refer to the “Tax Table Programming Example - Illinois 6% Tax Table” to help with this exercise.

3. Calculate the break point differences by subtracting the high side of the previous range from the high side of the dollar range.

4. Examine the pattern of break point differences to determine when the break points begin to repeat. Mark the beginning break points that do not fit a pattern as “non-repeat breaks.” Mark the break points that are repeating in a pattern as

“repeat breaks.”

Programming a Tax Table

1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

2. Enter 10.

3. Enter a digit to represent the tax you are programming:

1 for TAX 1

2 for TAX 2

3 for TAX 3

4 for TAX 4

4. Press the TAX key.

5. Enter the maximum amount that is not taxed and press the appropriate TAX key.

6. Enter the first tax amount charged and press the appropriate TAX key.

7. For each non-repeat break point, up to the last non-repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range and press the appropriate TAX key.

8. For the last non-repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range and press the X/TIME key.

9. For each repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range and press the appropriate TAX key.

10. Press the CASH/TEND key to end the tax table program.

Descriptor Programming Methods

Descriptors are programmable for each department, PLU, clerk, some function keys and the receipt message.

There are two methods available for programming descriptors:

1. Descriptor Entry by Code

In this method, there is a 3-digit code assigned for each character (see the “Descriptor

Code Chart” on page 57.) The detailed instructions for programming by this method are included in the programming instructions for each Department, PLU, Clerk, etc. that follow in this chapter.

2. Text Entry Method

Refer to the default keyboard shown below. Note the characters that are printed in the lower-right corner of Departments 1-12, much like the characters on a cell phone

10-keypad. You can program descriptors directly using this method; you do not need go the the appropriate descriptor program, i.e. program 530 for departments or program 300 for PLUs.

Use the instructions on the following page to program descriptor using this method.

Glossary of Terms

Activity Count

The activity counter increments each time an entry is made on a particular PLU, or function key. The counter prints on the appropriate reports.

Cancel

Press the CANCEL function to abort a transaction in progress. All current items are removed

(voided).

Cash Declaration

This option forces the operator to count the cash drawer and input the results before the financial report can be taken. Absentee owners may want clerks or managers to declare the drawer counts to insure that all cash is deposited, regardless of overages, or shortages.

Clerk

Sales clerks are individuals who are responsible for selling the merchandise to the customer.

Typically, management wants to know merchandise sales levels for each clerk, in order to monitor productivity, account for cash and other media, and/or pay commissions.

Compulsory

When an operation is programmed compulsory, the appropriate entry must be performed in order to complete the operation.

Consecutive Number

A sequential number is printed on each receipt issued. This is not a “customer count” as this number is incremented for non-sales activity such as no-sales and reports. A count of revenue generating transactions (true customer count) is printed with the Net Sales total on the financial report.

SAM4s ER-180T Operator's & Programming Manual v1.4 Glossary of Terms

83

Currency Conversion

Use the currency conversion function to convert and display the value of the transaction in foreign currency. Only cash tender is allowed after pressing the currency conversion function. Change is calculated and issued in home currency.

Default Program

The original program installed in the ER-180T. The register has a default program which makes it operational after a RAM clear. Nearly all option, rate, and status programs are set to zero as the default condition.

Compulsory Amount Tendering

The change will always be computed by the register when a customer tenders an amount greater than the total due. This will reduce cashier change errors.

Consecutive Number

A sequential number is printed on each receipt issued. This is not a “customer count” as the number is incremented for non-sales activity such as no-sales and reports. A count of revenue generating transactions (true customer count) is printed with the Net Sales total on the financial report.

Department

Traditionally cash registers have category keys to separate sales by departments within the store. For example, a grocery store may have grocery, meat and produce departments. When a clerk enters items sold, they will input the amount of the item, and then press the appropriate department the item is from. Management will get reports of activity and dollar volume for sales in each of the store’s departments. Today, departments have considerable flexibility. They may be “open” to accept price entries, or “preset” to automatically ring the item’s price. Where price look-ups (PLUs) are used, each PLU reports its sales to one of the departments.

Electronic Journal

The electronic journal is an area of memory designated to keep a sales journal. The electronic journal can be printed, if necessary, to provide a traditional record of all register activity.

Error Condition

An error condition signals that mis-operation has occurred. It is identified by an audible tone and an error descriptor appearing on the display.

84

Glossary of Terms

SAM4s ER-180T Operator's & Programming Manual v1.4

Error Correct

An error correct operation voids the last item entered, it must be used within a sale.

EPROM

Erasable, Programmable Read-Only Memory (EPROM) is used by the manufacturer to contain the program that runs the register. EPROMs maintain memory when power is off, allowing the register to be especially stable and reliable. In the case that the register’s program is improved, or updated, the EPROM can be updated by a qualified technicial.

HALO

The high amount lock-out (HALO) limits the amount allowed to be entered in a PLU, or function key.

Machine Number

The number of the register can be set and printed on each receipt. If the merchant uses more than one register, or has more than one location, the register where the transaction or report was taken is easily identified.

Multiple Receipts

In some cases, for example where a mail-in rebate is offered, and extra copy of a receipt is needed. If allowed, the receipt must be re-printed immediately, before another transaction is started.

Negative Departments/PLUs

As you program Departments and PLUs, you will find a setting to make them negative

(normally they are positive). Positive Departments/PLUs are used for items that add to the sale. Negative Departments/PLUs are used for items that subtract from a sale, like individual coupons or bottle deposit credits.

No Sale

No sale is an operation to simply open the cash drawer.

Override

Override is an operation used to bypass a programmed price or entry limit (HALO).

PLUs

Price look-ups (PLUs) are accessed by indexing a code number and pressing the PLU key, or by pressing a PLU key. PLUs can be programmed with a preset or open price. PLUs record their own activity count and dollar total on the PLU report. PLU sales are also reported to a department

SAM4s ER-180T Operator's & Programming Manual v1.4 Glossary of Terms

85

Over-Tendering/Under-Tendering

When a payment is made for an amount less than the amount due, it is called an under-tender.

After an under-tender, the register calculates and displays the remaining balance for the sale.

Additional payments must be made until the total due is satisfied. When the sale is fully paid, the cash drawer will then open and the receipt is completed. When a payment is made for an amount more than the amount due, it is called an over-tender. The register will compute and display the change due and the receipt will be completed. Note that register options can be set to allow or disallow over-tendering for check and charge payments.

Paid Out

The Paid Out key is used to track cash paid out of the cash drawer or to record pick ups from the cash drawer.

PLU Link

If you wish the registration a PLU to automatically cause the registration of another PLU, enter the number of the PLU you wish to register automatically in the LINK PLU of the PLU.

Post Tender

The Post Tendering feature allows the operator to use the register to compute change on cash transactions after the sale has been finalized.

To calculate change due after finalizing the sale, enter the cash amount presented by the customer and then press CASH. The amount of change due to the customer is then displayed, and the cash drawer may open.

This is a calculation function only, and no totals or counters are updated by the use of this feature.

Preamble/Postamble Message

Programmable messages allow each merchant to customize his receipt with the store name, address, phone number, website or other critical identification information or advertising messages. The SAM4s ER-180T allows a preamble message of up to six lines, each with up to 24-characters, to be printed at the top of each receipt. A postamble of up to 6-lines of 24characters can also be printed at the bottom of the receipt.

Preset (Department/PLU)

When a department or PLU is pre-programmed or pre-set with a fixed amount, the preset amount will automatically register when the department is pressed or the PLU is entered.

Merchants use presets to accurately price individual items and report a sales count for each item.

86

Glossary of Terms

SAM4s ER-180T Operator's & Programming Manual v1.4

Preset Override

When a department is preset, it is possible to override the preset price with a different price.

If the override function is set to be allowed in the department program, you can simply enter a new price and press the department key.

Receipt

A receipt is a printed tape given to a customer as a record of the sale transaction.

Register Number

The register number is a programmable number which prints on the receipt and journal tapes.

It identifies the electronic cash register the sale or report was performed on.

Received on Account

The Received on Account key is used to track cash received into the cash drawer or to record loans to the cash drawer.

Single Item

The transaction is finalized automatically when a single item Department or PLU is registered as the first item in a sale. Single item status is used to speed transaction entry when an item normally sold singly is sold, for example, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or an admission ticket.

Split Pricing

Often merchants price items in multiples, for example 3 for $1. The register will compute the price of items when the exact quantity is not purchased. If the customer chooses to buy 2 items at 3 for $1, enter 2, press the X/TIME key, enter 3, press the X/TIME key and then enter the price and the department or PLU. The register will compute the price for the items purchased.

Surcharge (Item)

An item percent surcharge adds a percentage to the price of an item. This addition nets the

PLU total.

Surcharge (Sale)

A sale percent surcharge adds a percentage to the entire sale.

Tax Exempt

Tax exempt is used to exclude the tax from an entire sale.

SAM4s ER-180T Operator's & Programming Manual v1.4 Glossary of Terms

87

Tax Shift

Tax shift keys are used to reverse the tax status of a PLU entry.

Tender

The method of register operation in which payment is made and the transaction is finalized.

Transaction Number

See consecutive number.

Void

A void operation will erase a previous item entry. It must be used inside of a sale only.

Tax Computation by Rate/Tax Computation by Table

In the simplest method of tax calculation, the register is set with a tax rate (or rates) and the taxes are computed by a percentage calculation. In some cases, a tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly the tax charts that apply in your area (even if the tax chart is based on a percentage). In these cases, we recommend that you enter your tax using tax table programming. This method will match tax collection exactly to the break points of your tax table.

Training Operation

Training operations do not add to department, PLU, or function key totals. This allows an operator to practice making entries without updating sales totals. If you wish to perform training operations, designate one of the clerks for training. You must clear (Z) the register

before the training clerk can be used. When that clerk is signed on, the register is in

“training mode”.

Triple Multiplication

You can perform a sequential multiplication using the X/TIME key. For example four cases of 24 beverages at $.89 each could be calculated by entering 4 X/TIME 24 X/TIME $.89 and would calculate $85.44. If triple multiplication is selected, split pricing is not allowed.

VAT

Value-Added Tax (VAT) is a tax collection system where a portion of the item’s sale price is tax. VAT is different than most sales taxes where tax amounts are calculated and added-on to the sale. Value added taxes are included in the item price. Most locales in the USA do not use VAT, which is used in Canada and other nations.

X & Z Reports

X (eXamine) read reports without resetting and Z (Zero) reports read and reset your sales totals.
