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.
1-1
Safety Precautions
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.
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.
CAUTION
There is the danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly
replaced.
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.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer.
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."
1-2
Servicing Precautions
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.
1-3
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Currency Conversion
If you normally accept currency from neighboring nations, you can program to convert the
subtotal of a sale to the equivalent cost in the foreign currency. To do this, you need to
program the conversion factor. For example, if the US dollar (home currency) is worth
1.3720 Canadian dollars (foreign currency), the conversion factor is 1.3720. See "Function

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:

Default Programming
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.
All programming (unless otherwise noted) is done with the control lock in the P position.
Each section details a specific area of register programming.

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.

Function Key Programming
Three programs are used to program function keys:

Program 70 - is used to set each keys individual options

Program 80 - is used to program a 8 character alpha numeric descriptor

Program 90 - is used to set a high amount limit (HALO)
In this chapter you will find:

General instructions for programs 70, 80 and 90.

Specific programming instructions for each function key.
Program 70 - Function Key Options
Use Program 70 to set options for function keys. Because of the differences inherent in
function keys, individual options will be different. See the specific instructions for each key
in this chapter to find the options for each key.

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.

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.
