Verify Correctness of Weight and Price

Verification of information on labels should be made routinely. Check the multiplication of price-per-pound times weight and check the indicated weight against printed weight. Weigh the same package several times to verify consistency. Bear in mind that some packages which weigh near the middle of the

.01 lb. increment will normally vary up or down by .01 lb. Greater variations than

.01 lb. indicate a need for adjustment of the system. In such cases, or whenever necessary, call your authorized Hobart service representative.

Leveling

Securely place the scale on a flat, level surface.

Adjust the leveling feet by turning them in or out until the scale is level. When level, the bubble on the side of the scale will be centered.

Weights & Measures Requirement

The bubble on the side of the scale must be centered for the

 

scale to weigh properly and, therefore, to be legal for trade.

Printing

SD scales are supplied with a label printer. The printer will accept label or continuous paper rolls that have either one of two core diameters.

The printer is fitted with a small hub to take continuous paper or label rolls with the small core diameter.

A sleeve is provided to slip over the small hub for use with continuous paper or label rolls having the larger core diameter.

Check that the correct size of hub is installed before loading the continuous paper or label roll. Change the printer hub if necessary.

Before you use your scale you should check that the appropriate type of printer roll is loaded and adjust the label width guide if you load a printer roll of a different width.

Note: The printer automatically adjusts to accommodate labels having different lengths.

Should labels become stuck in the printer, under no circumstances use a metal object to clear the blockage.

Do not use sharp or metal objects to remove accumulated debris.

The use of non-approved printer rolls may reduce the life of the print head and invalidate your warranty.

Approved labels and paper rolls are available from a number of suppliers, whose addresses can be obtained from your Hobart sales/service office. Refer to Label Source, page 6.

If ‘Out of Paper’ displays, the label or printer roll is depleted. Replace roll when needed.

If ‘Label Feed Error’ displays, labels are jamming in the printer. Clear jam and refeed paper roll through the printhead.

Advancing the Printer Roll

• To advance the paper roll, or print a blank label, press Print when either ‘Enter PLU’ or ‘Prepack’ is displayed and both unit price and total price are zero.

For information on sell by dates, refer to Date Code, page 22. For information on sales texts, refer to Sales Messages, page 22. NOTE: The labels for a single PLU use the PLU’s bar code format.

Bar Code Printing in ADD Mode

You can print the PLU label barcode on the ADD total label, however:

The PLU bar code must use the appropriate format.

ADD label bar code must be enabled.

All the transactions must be for the same PLU.

Creating Messages

Five different types of messages can be created: scroll message, store name, sales message, sign on / sign off text and group names.

Refer to Create and Edit Text, page 18, and Creating Product Groups, page 20.

Substitution Codes

You can include substitution codes in text messages for printing sales information.

For a complete list of Hobart and Dewey Decimal substitution codes available and how to use them, refer to Substitution Codes, pages 86 - 95.

Scroll Message

This is a trading message which appears on the customer and vendor displays when the machine is not in use. The message blanks as soon as you press a key during normal operation or when the weight is disturbed.

Up to 99 Scroll Messages, numbered from 1 to 99, can be created with up to 400 characters in each message.

Sales Messages

The preloaded ‘Sales Messages’ file, at left, is provided.

A sales message is a message that can be assigned to a PLU and will be printed on labels if the label format has an appropriate sales message field.

The position of the message depends on the label format selected for the scale. Each label format can have up to two sales message fields.

You can create up to 20 sales messages with up to 200 characters in each. A sales message can include substitution codes in the text message such as:

%%+4.1%% or %%D

  prints the current date

%%+4.3%% or %%Z1

  prints the time in the format 12:59

%%+4.4%% or %%Z2

  prints the time in the format 1259

%%+4.4%% or %%Z3

  prints the time in the format 125

%%+7.3#pp%% or %%Rpp

prints the sales message numbered  ‘pp’.

%%+3.1%% or %%V1

  prints the current operator number.

%%+3.2%% or %%V1

  prints the current operator name.

%%+7.1%% or %%M

  prints the sales message at machines

 

  associated with that message.

Date Code

Use the date code to print the date as the number of days from the start of the current year (01 January). You can set an offset (999,999 max.) to add a chosen number of days to the calculation.

%%+4.1%% or %%DC prints the date 01/02/02 as 32. %%+4.2#10%% or %%DC+10 prints the date 01/02/02 as 42. %%+7.1%% or %%DC prints the date 31/12/02 as 365.

Programming Operators

Operators can be uniquely identified and you can set the status of an operator for either trading or training. The operator’s status can be changed if there are no outstanding transactions against the operator. Operator numbers 0 - 20 are available; each can be used to identify an operator name of up to 16 characters.

Operator Names

Operator names are printed on the operator totals report.

The operator name or number can be printed on a label if a suitable label format is selected and the appropriate substitution code is included. Refer to Substitution Codes, pages 86 - 95, for the sales message text.

Operator PIN

The factory default setting for operator 1 PIN is 4296 and for operator 1 security level is 2 (Full Access).

All other operators will have factory default settings of PIN 0 and security level 0 unless you change them.

Each operator may be assigned a PIN between 0 and 99999999 which must be entered when logging on or off. If the PIN is left at 0, a PIN is not required when logging on or off.

• If you make a mistake while entering the number press Clear and reenter.

Changing Operator PIN

If you have set up and assigned a dedicated PIN key, the operator can change his or her PIN. Refer to Logging On/Off, page 41.

Always make sure that at least one operator has a security level set high enough to be able to change PINs and operator security in Manager Mode. If you accidentally set all the security levels too low, refer to Setup Mode, page 82.

Operator Security Level

There are three security levels: 0, 1 or 2.

Security level determines which scale functions can be accesed by the operator.

An operator can access a function if the operator’s security level is the same or higher than the security level required for the function.

Operator Status

The default operator mode is trading. You can change the operator mode from trading to training (or back again from training to trading) provided that there are no outstanding transactions against that operator.

If there are any current transactions you will see the message Print Trans displayed briefly and the machine will revert to the previous mode.

If there are totals outstanding you will see the message ‘Clear Trans. No.?’.

Press Clear , or press Enter to return to the previous mode without clearing transactions for the operator.

23

Setting Function Security Levels

There are three security levels: 0, 1 or 2.

Security level determines which scale functions can be accesed by the operator.

An operator can access a function if the operator’s security level is the same or higher than the security level required for the function.

If ‘Call Supervisor’ is displayed, your security level is not high enough. Security level 0 means that any operator can access that function. The following functions have factory preset security levels, as follows:

Manager Functions

You can assign a security level to most of the manager functions or you can change the level set, provided that your own security level is the same or higher than the function security.

Always make sure that you have at least one operator with a security level high enough to change Operator PIN and security level settings.

It is possible to inadvertently set all users security levels so that security levels can no longer be modified and no user has access to any sales or manager functions. If this happens refer to Setup Mode, page 82.

Scale Setup

To customize the way your scale operates, select function keys, programming them for quick access to functions and specify criteria for printing labels.

You must be in Manager Mode to perform any programming operation. Refer to Entering Manager Mode, page 16.

Direct Access Speedkeys or Hot Keys

Some functions have keys associated with them to give direct access to the function instead of stepping through the menus. This helps you perform manager functions more quickly

The default keys set up for the machine and their relative positions on the keyboard are shown below.

Speedkeys

To program keys for other menus with associated ‘hot’ keys:

1. Navigate to the menu for which you require quick access.

2. Hold down the key you want to use until you hear a series of short bleeps followed by a long bleep.

‘Entry Accepted’ will display when the key has been assigned.

NOTE: Customized speedkey assignments are not saved when you perform a machine dump, nor are they restored with a machine load. The default direct access keys are restored.

26

Speedkeys

Speedkeys can be assigned to any of the programmable keys on the keyboard. You can label the speedkey positions according to your own requirements.

The diagram shows how to assign a speedkey for PLU 117. The procedure is similar for any other type of dedicated key.

NOTE: If you are assigning a key to a position previously assigned to a function key, hold down the key until you hear a series of short beeps followed by a long beep.

Speedkeys can be allocated to Departments, Groups, Tares, or other references that do not have a dedicated key on the keyboard.

To set up a speedkey, do not enter a reference number for the key before assigning it to the keyboard.

Printer Setup

This group of functions enable you to customize the way that your scale generates and prints labels.

Label Setup

These appearance options for labels also have options that select how labels are generated and printed.

Label Type

Labels can be either separate or continuous.

Continuous Labels

Continuous labels can be printed on a tally roll or on a continuous label roll. If you use varying lengths or formats for labels, printing on a continuous label roll uses the printer roll more economically.

Separate Labels

When using separate labels, the labels must be appropriately sized for the format assigned to the PLU, the department and the scale.

Label Format

The label format can be either open or closed. Twelve standard label formats and four nutritional label formats are available. Any format can be set to suit your requirements.

With the open label format, labels are printed according to the format that is stored in the PLU record.

With a closed label format, labels are printed according to the label format that has been assigned to the scale.

If the Override key has been selected, the label prints according to the format assigned to the scale.

Tare Interlock

If the Tare Interlock is enabled, you must select a tare in order to print a label.

Print Modes

You can select one of three ways to print labels, print on request, print immediate or prepack.

Print on Request

• Press your operator key or Print to obtain the label.

Weighed and non-weighed transactions will be assigned to the default operator number.

Print Immediate

The machine issues a label as soon as the weight on the machine becomes steady. It does not retain the PLU or tare.

Weighed transactions will be assigned to the default operator number.

• You cannot use Override .

28

Prepack

All labels will be assigned to the default operator number.

The machine retains the PLU and tare (if set up) and issues a label each time the weight becomes steady.

Default Operator

• When selecting the print mode you will be asked to enter an operator number. This number will be assigned to the Print key.

Machine Message

You can assign a message reference to a machine. The substitution code %%M can be programmed into a PLU text field, sales message or store name. The code is replaced by the assigned message which is printed in the appropriate text field on the label.

Print Speed and Print Density Settings

You can enter a print speed between 50mm/s and 80mm/s. A slower print speed may improve print quality on low specification paper. Low print speed may also help if you have peel off problems with some types of label.

You can set the print density between 0% and 100%. The default setting is 100% but you may want to decrease the density when using a slow print speed.

Assigning a Bar Code Format

To print Bar Code on a label, a format must have been assigned to the scale.

On label machines the format assigned to the machine is used unless the PLU has a programmed barcode. Enter a bar code reference number from 0 to 11.

For more information on creating and selecting bar code formats, refer to Bar Codes, page 54.
