A Secure Digital (SD) card is used in numerous portable devices such as cameras, mobile phones and tablets. An SD card provides non-volatile storage. You may already have an SD card, if you don’t you will need to purchase one as your cash register will not come with one. When purchasing an SD card ensure that the card has the correct memory capacity for the tasks you require. We would recommend anything from 4GB to 32GB, most cash registers will not be compatible withMiniSDorMicroSDcards. You will also need to ensure that the SD card is formatted correctly.
The first function this new SD card slot provides is the ability to back up all your program data to an SD card. With this you could restore program data to a second or third machine and avoid any programming costs. Also if a fault occurs and your cash register loses its program it can be easily restored avoiding any disruption. This is extremely useful if you have 1,000’s of scanning PLU’s. If a fault occurred and you didn’t use this back up facility then every single scanned item would have to be re-entered, this would be costly and time consuming.
