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.
1-1 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.
CAUTION
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer.
Dispose used batteries according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.
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 comp-onents 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.
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.
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 Electrostatically Sensitive Devices (ESDs)
1. Some semiconductor (solid state) devices are easily
damaged by static electricity. Such components are
called Electrostatically 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.

Introduction
SAM4s SPS-500 Series Overview
Power Requirements
Plug the SPS-500 into a grounded 3-prong outlet.

Be aware that other electrical devices on the same circuit can cause your ECR to malfunction. Avoid
plugging your ECR into outlets where other high-current devices are connected.

Be aware that power quality issues, including voltage fluctuations, electrical noise, spikes, outages,
interruptions, and other power viruses can disrupt or damage modern electronic equipment, including
ECRs and PCs.

When ECRs are interconnected in networks, connected to PCs or where communications cables
connect peripherals, particular care must be taken with power sources and communication cable
routing. Your authorized dealer can provide detailed power specifications for these applications.
Failure to implement installation requirements for networked systems may cause system failures
and/or poor system performance.

The SAM4s SPS-500 is a modern computerized network device. As with all network systems, it
requires appropriate electrical power wiring and proper routing of communication cabling for reliable
operation and maximizing the life of the equipment.

When installed in a merchant location, CRS recommends a PowerVar ABC065-11 power conditioner,
CRS P/N 701002. An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is recommended where frequent power
disruptions occur. Without a UPS, the SPS-500 will shut down and reboot when power is disrupted.
(The SPS-500 reboots in less than one minute.)
CRS also recommends:
1. Dedicated branch circuits for SPS-500 equipment.
2. Isolated Grounding for all equipment within the SPS-500 system.
Please refer to the SPS-500 Installation Guide for detailed power requirements.
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Introduction  9
Safe Operation

Do not locate your SAM4s SPS-500 in a damp or wet environment. Avoid high humidity, direct
sunlight and temperature extremes.

Always plug your SPS-500 into a grounded three-prong outlet. Never use two-prong adaptors or
ungrounded outlets.

Check to make sure the power outlet provides the correct voltage: (120V +/- 10%).

Immediately disconnect the ECR from the power source in case of spilled liquid in the ECR, smoke,
or strange smells. Call your authorized dealer for assistance.

Do not operate the ECR with wet hands.

Use a soft dry cloth to clean the ECR cabinet. Do not use wet cloths or solvents.

Do not open the ECR case to attempt repairs. Dangerous voltages can cause shock. Service attempts
by untrained personnel can cause unnecessary damage to your ECR.
Important Battery Backup Note
Before using the SAM4s SPS-500 for the first time, leave it powered on in the REG key lock position for
at least twenty-four hours. This allows the Ni-MH battery, which maintains the memory of the ECR
while the power is off, to charge completely.

Software
The built-in SPS-500 POS application has considerable flexibility and can be configured for both retail sales
and food sales in quick and table service environments.
The SPS-500 application program allows the reseller to configure the terminal to perform in a specific setting.
After consulting with the merchant, the reseller uses S Mode (secure) programs set to memory allocation,
system configurations, key functions and locations, port assignments, passwords and other system settings.
Then the P Mode (program) is used to complete the end user program for the merchant with, price look-up
(PLU) programs, messages, employees, taxes, and other system options.

Keylinks
The main screen provides up to 24 programmable locations. In addition to the main screen you can define
199 additional 24-location screens referred to as “Keylinks”. (Note that the default program pre-defines the
first 10 keylinks for PLU lists and various function lists.)
In the example depicted below, the PLU List keys and the Payment key open new Keylink Screens.
More about Keylinks

Keylinks have multiple uses. Typically they will be used to display condiments, instructions or
options for an item registered from the main keyboard. They may also be used to organize function
keys such as discounts or type of payment keys.

Keylinks can display any combination of PLU keys (menu items or condiments) or function keys
such as % keys, media keys, etc.

Keylinks can be opened (displayed) by touching a key on the main keyboard or by touching a key on
another Keylink. Keylinks can also be opened automatically after the entry of a PLU item (see PLU
Programming).

Keylinks can be programmed to remain open for unlimited entries, with the DONE key used to close
the Keylink screen, or can be programmed to close automatically after a set number of entries are
completed.

Custom Screen Layouts
After your authorized dealer prepares your SPS-500 for installation, your main screen and keylink screens
will look different. Each screen will contain the variety of item and function keys that you require. Your
screens will be designed using the following capabilities:
The default Main Screen and each
Keylink screen provide 24 single size
key locations in a 4 x 6 matrix.
Note: Four screen configuration
options are available: providing 24, 12,
6 or 0 key locations on the display.
Large, wide and vertical keys may
be used and unused locations may be
eliminated.
Keys colors can be chosen from an
18-color palate.
Images may be used instead of
text for key identification.
Keys may be set to open new
screens (keylinks). In this
example, the beverage key
(above) is set to open a new
screen offering 4-different
beverage sizes.
The transaction area and the
key area of the screen can
be flipped so that the
transaction detail displays
on the left of the screen.

Software Installation & SD
Utilities
Overview
The latest software revisions will be posted on the SPS-500 dealer support page of the CRS website:
www.crs-usa.com. Software will be revised continually as anomalies are identified, repaired, and as new
features and peripherals are supported.
 Always verify that the latest software is installed prior to preparing equipment for installation. CRS
recommends the latest released software version for new installations.
NOTE: Software pre-installed on new equipment may not be the latest version.
 Monitor the CRS dealer page and your email for bulletins and software update information.
 Verify that the same software version is installed on all terminals in a multi-terminal installation.
Important: Updating Existing Installations
If you are performing an update on an existing installation, remember that you must perform a memory all
clear after installing updated software. Before updating an existing installation:
1. Save memory allocation, programs and reports (S/SRAMBACKUP).
2. Perform updates as necessary.
3. Clear all memory (use instructions in the previous chapter found on page 23.)
4. Restore previously saved memory allocation, programs and reports (S/SRAMBACKUP). (Note:
occasional format changes may prevent reloading of certain programs and/or reports.)
Update Methods
Operating system and application files can be updated directly by SD card. Updates instructions for update
by SD are documented in this chapter.
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Software Installation & SD Utilities  25
Required Support Resources

A PC with a SD Memory Card reader or a USB memory stick. The SD/USB memory provides the
most convenient method of updating the SPS-500 application software and also can be used for
program loading/saving, capturing SPS-500 screens for documentation purposes and transferring
bitmap images to the SPS-500. (CRS supplies SD cards/readers: P/N 520004 - SanDisk SD 512mb
card; P/N 520002 - SanDisk Mobilemate SD+ 5-N-1 card reader/writer, P/N 520005 USB 2gb, P/N
5200026 USB 512mb.)
NOTE: SD cards must be formatted as FAT 32. To avoid compatibility issues, CRS recommends
that you purchase SD cards from CRS.

Download the appropriate files from the SPS-500 dealer support page at www.crs-usa.com.
SPS-500 Program Components
In most cases, the application program will be the only program that will require updating.
1. Application Program – This program will be frequently updated as features and operations are
changed. (Do not confuse the application program with the end-user program, which consists of the
files and setting prepared for an end user installation.)
2. MICOM – The MICOM is supported by it’s own flash memory. MICOM controls LCD brightness,
touch screen, buzzer and MSR. It is anticipated that this program area will remain stable. You will be
notified in the case that this program changes.
3. The Boot Area program is executed on power-on. It initializes hardware and loads the OS (Linux) to
main memory. It is anticipated that this program area will remain stable. You will be notified in the
case that this program changes.
4. KERNAL version 1.00 and RAMDISK version 1.00. You will be notified in the case that these
programs change.
How to Verify Software Versions
1. Turn the key lock to the S position. (Note: the application version can be displayed by touching the
X/Time (@/For) key in R position.)
2. From the S Mode menu, touch Self Test and then touch version. The Version screen Displays:
3. Review the version information displayed. Touch CLOSE to exit.

Application Upgrade/Backup from SD/USB
A Note About Software Upgrades…
Most software updates will be application upgrades and will be done in S Mode from SD or USB. Use the
following instructions to complete these upgrades. There may be rare occasions when operating system files
are updated. Operating system updates are performed from the system menu. If an operating system update
is needed, specific instructions will accompany the update files. Care must be taken so that operating system
files are not inadvertently downgraded. Always clear all memory after any update.
This utility allows you to upgrade or back up the SPS-500 application program (a file in the sps500 folder
named sps500) using either an SD card or USB memory stick. The application backup utility is very useful
for field service staff when installing new registers to an existing system. Application programs MUST BE
THE SAME on all registers in a network.
NOTE: SD cards must be formatted as FAT 32. To avoid compatibility issues, CRS recommends that you
purchase SD cards from CRS.
1. At your PC, create an “sps500” folder on SD/USB card. Copy the application image (sps500) to this
folder.
2. Insert SD card or USB memory stick into the SPS-500.
3. From the S Mode main menu touch Self Test, and then touch APPLICATION UPDATE.
4. Select Application Update or Application Backup.
5. Select SD or USB.
30  Software Installation & SD Utilities
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
6. Confirm the update by touching YES. Monitor the update progress on the screen.
7. The screen displays Update or Backup Complete. Click Close.
If you are completing an application backup, there will be a delay of about 3 minutes before the SMODE menu returns and the backup is complete. Do not power off the ECR or attempt another
operation until the S-Mode menu returns. After completion, it is not necessary to clear memory.
If you are completing application update, you must clear all memory. See “Memory All Clear” on
page 23.
8. Verify the Application software version selecting the Version option from the S Mode Self Test
menu. The application version is also displayed on the SPS-500 information screen. (Touch @/For
in REG mode when outside of a transaction.)

Image Downloads
Key images can be added to function and PLU keys. Images can also be used for key screen backgrounds
(viewed in REG mode where key locations are inactive.) Images add style and usability to the SPS-500 touch
screen.
This procedure allows you to download images to the SPS-500 where they can be added to keys in the S
Mode Key Location program.
Tips for Getting Images Ready

The maximum image size for 1 x 1 size keys is 102 x 78 pixels. (2 x 2 size keys can be up to 204 x
156 pixels; 1 x 2 size keys can be 102 x 156 pixels; 2 x 1 size keys can be 204 x 78 pixels.) You will
need to use a graphic program such as Microsoft Paint to re-size larger images.

Images in many common formats can be used: i.e. .gif, .tif, .jpeg, .bmp. (.wmf format images cannot
be used.)

The length of the image file name must be less than 12-characters.

The image size for background images is 410 x 475 (this size will fill the entire panel). The
background image file name(s) should be “flist_imgxxx.jpg”, where xxx means the keylink number,
001 through 200. The extension must be .jpg (with lower case). To display the background image,
you must also set the DISPLAY BACKGROUND IMAGE option to YES. View this option by
touching the PGM button from the KEY RELOCATION screen.

A large selection of clip art can be accessed without charge from Microsoft Office Online at
http://office.microsoft.com/clipart/default.aspx?lc=en-us.

CRS is preparing a library of common key images for use on the SPS-500. Go to the SPS-500
product page of the dealer area of www.crs-usa.com to access these images.

Screen Saver Logo
When the screen saver is engaged, the default SAM4s logo moves in a pattern across the screen (this is the
FLOATING Logo). This logo can be replaced with a custom logo. Name the custom logo “logo.jpg”. The
maximum logo size is 759 (wide) X 399 (height). (logo.jpg works best if under 100K in size.)
Set SYSTEM OPTION/GENERAL FUNCTION OPTION #58 to ROTATING to allow up to fifty images to
sequence on the screen. These images must be named “logo##.jpg” where ## is 01 through 50.
Follow these steps to implement a custom logo.
1. Make a “logo.jpg” file for a FLOATING logo or “logo##.jpg” files for ROTATING logos. NOTE:
File name must be lower case characters.
2. Make a folder on the SD card named \image. (This is the same folder that is used to contain key
images.)
3. Copy the logo files to this directory.
4. Move the SD card to the SPS-500.
5. From the SPS-500 S Mode menu, choose Key Relocation, Screen Designer, PGM Tab, then Image,
then Copy and confirm.
6. The new image(s) will replace the SAM4s logo as the screen saver.
Downloading Logo Images for the Internal Printer
You can load up to 14 images into SPS-500 memory through the SD card for printing on the internal printer.
Images files should be named logo_xx.bmp (where xx is 01-14). After loading, use P/SYSTEM
OPTONS/GENERAL PRINTING OPTIONS #34-37 to select the image number you wish to print on the
top/bottom of receipts and guest checks.
Note
Images must be in sequential order, beginning with logo_01.bmp. For example, you cannot load
logo_02.bmp without also loading logo_01.bmp at the same time. A “NOT FOUND” error will display if you
attempt to load logos that are not in a complete, sequential series.

PLUs can be set to reduce stock levels set at another PLU. (System Option/General Function Option/#62
must be set to “Stock Link PLU”) Set the number of the PLU where stock is affected (by activity of this
PLU) here. This capability has applications where multiple PLUs affect a single inventory item, for
example cup counts for beverage items and where items are counted without regard to brand, such as
cigarette packs.
MODIFIER QTY
This works in conjunction with the stock link PLU flag determining how many units are to be reduced
from the main stock item. The field consists of two decimal places for example 50 would result in 0.50
being reduced from the stock of the item program within the stock link PLU field.
GROUP LINK #1
This field is used to provide the first type of sales analysis by category i.e. Beer, Lagers. You can touch
this field and select the group link from a list.
PLU STATUS GROUP LINK#
This is the programming for the status group link. Providing an en-masse program procedure for common
system flags. You can touch this field and select the PLU Status Group link from a list.
PIECE COUNT
Enter a value in this field if you wish to use Product Mix and Product Projection reporting. The number of
units entered here will be reflected in product mix reporting.
74  P Mode Programming
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
PRODUCT MIX #1
This works in-conjunction with the piece count to track the unit and case usage of an item, each product
can be programmed with the number of pieces used from an outer, i.e. the number of bottles from a case.
The piece count would control the number of bottles and the product mix group would control the
description of the item and the number of units in case. In this field you would link the item to the product
mix group.
RECEIPE#
This links to the ingredient inventory, so that when the product is sold, the quantities of each ingredient
used are subtracted from stock for the allocated recipe and the appropriate sub recipes.
MIX & MATCH TABLE#
This is the promotion discount table, when the product or a mix of products, allocated to the same table
are sold the appropriate discount information from the mix and match table will be subtracted.
PRINT NV IMAGE
Choose YES if you wish to print an image stored in the non-volatile area of the connected printer when
the item is registered. The image, such as a coupon, will be printed at the bottom of the receipt. You
must also select an image number in the PLU Status Group program to select a specific image from the
many that may be resident in the printer NV memory.
INACTIVE
This prevents the product from being sold, without deleting therefore still retaining accumulated product
sales data.
PRESET
This determines whether the product is a pre-set or open price.
ALLOW PRICE CHANGE
If yes, the PLU price can be changed in REG mode with the sequence: [PRICE CHANGE] [PLU]
[PRICE] [PRICE CHANGE].
ALLOW PRESET/HALO OVERRIDE
This allows the operator to either manually enter over a pre-set priced item or to override a maximum sale
limit. This works per PLU, with each product having individual restriction. If global restriction is required
change the setting in systems options
FUNCTION LIST KEY LINK
Enter the number of the Key Link screen you wish to display immediately after this item is registered.
PRICE/HALO 1 - 5
This is either the pre-set price of an item, or the maximum sale amount of an open product.
PRICE LEVEL 1 - 5
Entered here is the price level for each product. The default program provides one price level, however
up to 5 different prices per product made by assigned by memory allocation, with up to twenty price
levels available to be allocated. This allows the user to create a matrix of PLUs and Prices each accessed
by one of the twenty price keys. When the price key is priced the product is then checked to determine if
that price level (1-20) exists in any one of the five prices available. The standard is two prices per product
set to price 1 and 2 this is generated as standard. A product price level sales report is available showing
the total quantity and value sold per price and overall per product also a total for each price. This feature
is not related to the five keyboard levels, they work independently

menu screens based upon the group/PLU data. Use this program when creating an end-user program for the
first time. PLU Quick Registration is not recommended for ongoing program maintenance.
1. If you are creating a new program, it is recommended that you clear all PLU data before using PLU
Quick Registration. Select MEMORY CLEAR from the S Mode menu, then select option #13
CLEAR PLU FILE. Note: If you do not clear PLUs, default PLUs 1-120 from the default program,
reporting to group 1, will conflict with the PLU numbering convention used in this process.
2. Select PLU from the P Mode menu and then from the PLU option menu, touch PAGE DOWN to
view and select the PLU QUICK REGISTRATION option. A blank PLU QUICK REGISTRATION
PROGRAM screen displays. The screen command buttons that are displayed across the top of the
screen are described below:

PLU Integrity Check
Choosing this option will check the PLU file for invalid programming and print a report listing PLUs that
have invalid programming. An example of invalid programming is a PLU programmed with PLU STATUS
GROUP #400 when only 200 PLU STATUS GROUPS are allocated in MEMORY ALLOCATION. This
feature will check the flags STOCK LINK PLU, MODIFIER QTY, GROUP, PLU STATUS GROUP, PIECE
COUNT, PRODUCT MIX#, RECIPE#, M&M# and FUNCTION LIST#. When programming at the register
it is not possible to program these fields with invalid programming, however if memory allocation is changed
after the program is created these fields could become invalid.

employee are determined by assigning the employee to an authority level. (See "Authority Level" on page
128.)
Two 10-digit code numbers may be assigned for each employee. A clock-in code is used to clock in or out
and a separate sign on code used to operate the register. The social security number is for reference only and
appears only on reports.
The total number of employees (up to 999) is set in memory allocation. See "Memory Allocation" in "S

Use this program to create a custom report, modify the financial or employee report, or to define reports to be
linked in up to four string reports. This report is available for standalone registers only, not IRC.
Custom Report
One custom report can be created, with up to 50 totals and counters. The report is built by selecting totals that
also appear on either the financial or sales by time period reports. When the custom report is created, totals
and counters separate from the original report are also created (in other words, you can clear the custom
reports independently without affecting totals in any other report.)
Another feature of the custom report is the ability to add or subtract selected totals to create a new subtotal of
selected information.

SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Product Mix Group Time Periods
Memory allocation determines whether there are 24, 48, or 96 product mix group time periods. (Time periods
used for the Product Mix and Projections reports are defined separately from the time periods used for Time
Period sales reporting.) Product mix group time periods will default to hourly periods if 24 periods are
selected in memory allocation; 30-minute periods if 48 periods are selected; 15-minute periods if 96 periods
are selected.
Periods can be set to custom lengths using this program. Enter the times for each period. Choose YES if you
wish the period total to add to the summary total at the bottom of the report. Choose NO if you wish the
period total NOT to add to the summary total at the bottom of the report.
All time units are based upon a 24-hour clock (military time).

Taxes
The SPS-500 provides calculation for up to six taxes. Tax calculation can be made by ADD ON percentage,
by TAX TABLE, or by VAT (value-added tax).
Provisions have been made for the Canadian Goods and Services tax (GST). If GST is to be taxable, you
have the option of taxing the GST by other applicable rates (tax on tax). Use TAX 6 for GST applications.
1. From the PGM mode PROGRAMMING MENU touch TAXES to view the TAX PROGRAMMING
Screen.
2. Touch the TYPE button to select ADD ON, TAX TABLE or VAT.
3. Refer to the notes that follow to program each type of tax.
4. Touch CLOSE to exit the program.

MODE CHANGE ERROR
*The error message “TPH TEMPERATURE IS HIGH” will display if the temperature at the surface of the
printer head reaches 140F. It is not necessary to power off the register; Opening the printer cover is more
effective. In normal situations, this message should not be seen for a long period of time. If some liquid was
spilled on the printer, there is a possibility that the sensor will miss-read the temperature. In the case of a
spill, call a qualified service technician for repair.

if overlap employee is not programmed.
ZERO AMOUNT
The register has been programmed to not allow negative sales, and to consider a zero amount as a
negative sale.

SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Printer & KV Routing
The printing system of an SPS-500 register or system of registers is completely flexible. Up to 40 printers can
be defined and connected to any available serial port on any register within a system. Multiple printer
functions can be assigned to the same printer, giving added flexibility. The internal printer (single station) on
the SPS-530 and the receipt/journal printers on the SPS-520 can be defined in the same manner as external
printers and can receive data from other registers in the same network.
1. Before programming here, you must first:

See "Define Port" in S Mode Programming to define the type of device (i.e. printer or kitchen video)
that is connected to a serial port and to match the baud rate/parity/etc. between the serial port and the
printer. This program also controls the feed lines before and after printing, the logo size, and cutting
options.

See "Printer Driver Selections" if you are using a printer other than the printers with predefined
drivers, or if you need to customize a driver for a printer.
2. Next, assign a port for each printer. Select SYSTEM PRINTER CONFIGURATON to assign the
printer number (1-40), give it a 10 character descriptor (i.e. salad prep, receipt, or detail) and identify the
port # and the register # to which it is attached. In addition, you can identify a back-up location for
information designated to go to the printer. (For example, if the salad printer is not functioning, then
information destined for that printer could be sent to a different printer.)
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
P Mode Programming  149
3. Finally, proceed with the parts of this program that pertain to your application:

If you are using a kitchen video, select Kitchen Video Routing to designate the port # and the register
# where the video controller is attached. You can also define a backup printer in case communication
with the video controller is disrupted.
If you are using kitchen printers, select Kitchen Printer Routing to link kitchen printer groups with a
printer. (The groups of items are defined by assigning PLU items to PLU Status groups where groups
are identified.)
Because different registers might route kitchen printer items to different printers, each register can be
programmed separately in this program. (See "Kitchen Printing/Video Option Definitions" (option
#11) on page 114 to allow separate routing by register.) All registers contain routing information for
all of the registers in the system.
150  P Mode Programming
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
NOTE: All registers are updated with changes made to this program at any register.
Because it is sometimes necessary to change kitchen printer routing depending upon the time of the
day, (for example, separate hot and cold food kitchens may be active during lunch and a single
kitchen active during dinner) you can make assignments for four different periods. The active routing
period can be controlled automatically by time or set manually.
Priority printing is also controlled with this program. The order in which items are printed on the
kitchen printer ticket is determined by the order in which kitchen printer groups are listed for each
printer #. (Groups at the left are printed first; groups at the right are printed last.)

If you are using receipt printers, see select Receipt Printer Routing to set the receipt printer for each
location.

If you are using detail printers, see Detail Printer Routing to designate the journal printer for each
location.

Promotion Table
Retailers often offer discounts when multiples of items are purchased. Through the Promotion Table, you can
handle four different discount situations.
1. Mix & Match
This discount situation takes place where the merchant offers a fixed amount discount when a specific
quantity of similar items are purchased. For example, “save $5 on any three bottles of wine”. This
discount is implemented by first linking the applicable PLUs to a specific promotion table. At the
promotion table screen, set the discount price field with the discount amount and the fixed quantity
field with the number of items that need to be purchased in order to qualify for the discount.
Mix & Match %
This discount situation is similar to mix & match, except a percentage discount is applied (rather than
an amount discount) when the discount criteria is met.
2. Multi Buy
This discount situation takes place where the merchant offers a fixed amount discount when a specific
combination of items is purchased. For example, purchase 2-hamburgers, 1-french fry and 1-medium
soft drink to receive a $1 meal discount. To implement this discount, you must list each item and the
qualifying quantity that must be purchased on the promotion table program screen. Enter the amount
of the combination discount in the discount price field.
3. Fixed Price
The fixed price discount is similar to the mult-buy discount. In both situations specific items must be
sold to qualify, except when using the fixed price option, the package price is programmed instead of
the package discount. For example, purchase 3-roast beef sandwiches for $3. In this case, the roast
beef sandwich will be listed on promotion table screen with a quantity of “3”. The discount price
field will be set at $3, which is the actual cost of the package.
4. Selective Discount
Selective discount enables a “coupon search” feature. In other words, before a coupon is allowed, the
product for with the coupon applies, must be register in the transaction. The selective discount
promotion is applied by first programming a “%” function key, and then setting the options on the
Promotion Table programming screen. The “Mix&Match Table #” field on the PLU must be set to
“00”. The discount is applied by first entering the promotion table number, then touching the “%”
function key. If the discountable item is not registered, a “NO ITEM FOR SELECT DISCOUNT”
error will display and the discount will not be applied. The FIXED QTY field will determine how
many times the discount is applied.

Glossary of Terms
Activity Count
The activity counter keeps track of the number of times an entry is made on a PLU, or function key.
Add Check
The Add Check function is used to add multiple guest checks (tracking balances or soft checks) for
payment together. (Use Tray Subtotal to add separate transactions when you are not tracking
balances.)
Audaction
Refers to the total of all sales ending in a negative balance.
Authority Levels
Each employee must be assigned to one of nine authority levels. Each of the levels is set up to
determine the operations that are allowed for each employee.
For example, in a restaurant an authority level with the descriptor kitchen help could be set to allow
only clocking in/out, or an authority level with the descriptor owner could be set up to allow all
functions. Other authority levels could be defined for servers, cashiers and managers that allow only
the appropriate functions.
Auto Grill
Use the Auto Grill option to send items individual items to the designated kitchen printer. Items are
sent with a one-item delay (at the next item or at subtotal.)
Auto Scale
Registrations of PLUs with auto scale status will automatically multiply by the weight placed upon a
scale connected to the register. Use for items such as produce that are always sold by weight.
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Glossary of Terms  171
Auto Tare
With auto tare status assigned, a preprogrammed tare weight will automatically subtract from the
weight from the scale.
Bitmap File
The bitmap file is an image, i.e. a logo that can be printed on a receipt or guest check. The bitmap file
is downloaded to the SPS-500 from a PC, and then downloaded to the memory of the appropriate
printer.
Canadian Donut Law
Refers to special Provincial or State sales tax laws that change the taxable status of an item depending
upon the quantity sold. Donuts, for example, might be taxable when sold individually at a bakery.
However, if a customer purchases a dozen, the food sale is considered non-taxable.
Cancel
Press the CANCEL function to abort a transaction in progress. All current items are removed
(voided).
Check Cash
Use the CHECK CASH function to exchange a check for cash outside of a sale.
Check Endorse
If compulsory check endorsement is set with the CHECK key, use the CHECK ENDORSE function to
print the endorsement message after a check is inserted into the appropriate printer.
Compulsory
When an operation is programmed compulsory, a function (i.e. Non-add number entry) must be
performed in order to complete the operation.
Condiment
Condiments PLUs are different from non-condiment PLUs in the manner they display and print during
operations. Non-condiment PLUs are used for "main" items. Condiment items are indented and
displayed/printed below a main item so that condiments or cooking instructions are easily understood
for each "main" item.
Continue
Use the Continue function to override the pop-up employee function after a transaction. Allows the
employee to post an additional transaction without signing on again.
172  Glossary of Terms
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Currency Conversion
Use one of the 5 available currency conversion functions to convert and display the value of the
transaction in foreign currency. Only cash tender is allowed after pressing a CURR CONV key.
Change is calculated and issued in home currency.
Custom Report
One custom report can be created, with up to 50 totals and counters. The report is built by selecting
totals that also appear on either the financial or sales by time period reports. When the custom report
is created, totals and counters separate from the original report are also created (in other words, you
can clear either the custom independently without affecting totals in any other report.)
Another feature of the custom report is the ability to add or subtract selected totals to create a new
subtotal of selected information.

The original program installed in the SPS-5X0. 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.
Destination
Refers to the destination for the sale i.e. eat-in, take out, drive thru.
Discount (Item)
An item discount (coupon or %) subtracts an amount or percentage from the price of an item. This
subtraction nets the Department or PLU total.
Discount (Sale)
A sale discount (coupon or %) subtracts an amount or percentage from the entire sale.
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 an incorrect operation has occurred. It is identified by an audible tone
and an error descriptor appearing on the display.
Error Correct
An error correct operation voids the last item entered, it must be used within a sale.

Food Stamps
In the United States, Food Stamps may be used to purchase eligible food items at food stores that
participate in the program. The SPS-500 can assist a retailer in handling food stamp transactions by
sorting food stamp and non-food stamp eligible items within each sale and tracking food stamp
payments for eligible items.
Gallonage
Gallonage is a status that can be assigned to a PLU. Gallonage PLUs accept a price, but print both the
price and the quantity of gallons sold. The quantity of gallons is computed from the price per gallon,
which is set as the preset price.
Groups
Groups are totals that collect information from designated PLUs. For example all PLU dessert items
could collect in a group total called "desserts". You can send each PLU to up to three groups. The
first group is designated in PLU programming, the second and third groups are designated in PLU
Status Group programming.
HALO
The high amount lock-out (HALO) limits the amount allowed to be entered in a PLU, or function key.
Ingredient Inventory
A menu-explosion type inventory system is set up when PLUs are linked to a recipe number. The XMODE MANAGER MENU provides functions to receive, transfer in/out, or enter raw waste for
ingredients used in the recipe system.
Initial Clear
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.
IRC
Inter Register Communications (IRC) is the term used to describe communications within a network of
registers. Information exchanged between registers includes check information for posting to guest
check, information to be printed or displayed at printers or videos, and sales information for
consolidated reporting.
The SPS-500 uses ETHERNET at 10/100 Mbps for IRC.
Job Codes
Job codes are used to break down the hours worked for all employees into different categories (See
"Labor Groups" report in the Operation Manual.) A breakdown of hours by job is also reported for
each employee (See "Time Keeping" reports in the Operation Manual.)

Keyboard Level
Each keyboard level is a separately defined set of keyboard functions for each key on the keyboard.
For example, separate levels might be required for different lunch/dinner menus. Or, within a
restaurant different keyboards might be set up for pre-check, bar and/or cashier stations. Each
register might contain the functions for each station on a separate level, so that any register could
function at any station by simply changing keyboard levels and key legend sheets.
The SPS-500 has five keyboard levels.
Link PLU
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 field of the appropriate PLU
Status Group.
Macro
Macros record key sequences for later execution. Up to 40 macros may be recorded and executed by
pressing a function key or by entering the appropriate macro number and pressing a function key.
Memory Allocation
Memory allocation is a program that determines how the system memory is divided to provide the
correct features for your application. For example, you may require more or less employee memory,
PLUs, or reporting. Memory allocation allows you to maximize the features you need while minimizing
the features you do not need.
Modifier
Preceding a PLU entry, a modifier key changes a digit of the PLU number, causing a different PLU to
be registered. Modifier keys can be set to change any of the 14 PLU digit positions to any specified
digit (0-9). More than one modifier key can be pressed in succession to alter the PLU code.
No Sale
No sale is an operation to simply open the cash drawer.
NON-PLU Code
The NON-PLU Code program must be set if you wish to scan UPCs (using the EAN 13 code) with
embedded prices, weights or quantities.
Within the EAN 13 code, the first two digits (part a) are used as an identifier and the last digit (part c)
is used as a check digit. The remaining 10 digits (part b) contain the product code and the price (or
weight or quantity).
Override
Override is an operation used to bypass a programmed price or HALO.
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Glossary of Terms  175
Password
A four-digit password can be set to control access to reports. Different passwords can be set for X and
Z1, Z2 etc. reports.
A system password can be set to allow service access to all of the functions of the SPS-500. For
example, use the system password if you are servicing a users system and you do not know an employee
code that allows you to access necessary functions, or if authority level programming prohibits you
from accessing functions you need to access in order to complete your tasks.
Piece Count
The piece count is the value assigned to a PLU item that represents the number of unit pieces sold when
the PLU is registered. For example, the number of pieces of chicken can be counted when a chicken
dinner is sold. The number of units set as the piece count will be reflected in product mix reporting.
PLU Status Link #
Also referred to as PLU Status Group. The status link # contains the many of the configurable options
for a PLU.
PLUs
Price look-ups (PLUs) are used to register items. PLUs can be fixed keys on the keyboard or they can
be accessed by indexing a code number and pressing the PLU key. PLUs can be programmed with a
preset or open price. PLUs record their own activity count and dollar total on any of the PLU reports.
Post Tendering
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 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.
Price Level
Prices may be assigned at up to five different price levels for each item. One of up to 20 price level keys
is identified for each different PLU price.
Product Mix Groups/Product Mix Reporting
Product Mix Groups can be used to implement a simplified ingredient system for tracking only
essential ingredients associated with items (i.e. cups for beverages or number of pieces for chicken
menus.)
Product mix groups also report usage by time period and optional Product Projections reporting is also
available. The Product Projection report provides a history of each item's sales by day of week.

SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Promo
The PROMO operation allows items to be sold without cost, i.e. buy two, and get one free. PROMO
activity will remove the item cost from the sale, but the sales count will include the promo item.
Receipt
A receipt is a printed tape given to a customer as a record of the sale transaction.
Recipe #
A menu-explosion type inventory system is set up when PLUs are assigned to a recipe number.
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.
Stay-Down
When a function is programmed as a stay-down function, it is valid until changed. For example, a staydown clerk remains signed on until either signed off, or another clerk is signed on.
Stock PLU
Stock PLUs track the quantity of the PLU item in stock. Each time the PLU is registered, a whole unit
subtracts from the stock counter. (Note that if multiplication or decimal multiplication is used when
the PLU is registered, the resulting quantity of activity will subtract from the stock counter. Stock is
maintained increments to the second decimal position, i.e. "X.XX".)
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.
Tare Weight
A tare is the amount of weight accounted for by the container or packaging. By entering a tare weight
(as required by law in some areas) the weight of the container is subtracted and only the true weight of
the product is measured on the scale.
Tax Except
Tax except is used to exclude the tax from an entire sale.
SPS-500 Program Manual v1.26
Glossary of Terms  177
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
A count appears at the bottom of each receipt and after each transaction on the journal tape. This
count increases by one with each transaction, report, or scan.
Void
A void operation will erase a previous item entry. It must be used inside of a sale only.
Waste
The Waste function is used to start and end entries of items that are wasted. A waste count is
maintained for each item and inventory is adjusted.
