            o   Bits per second = 9600

            o   Data bits = 7

            o   Parity = Even

            o   Stop bits = 1

            -          Tap on save and you will receive a message that the scale was successfully connected.

             

            Creating a Tare

            A Tare is the empty weight of a container. You would use a Tare if you had for example 3 different sized bowls for yogurt (S,M,L). The Tare will deduct the weight of the container from the weight of the product.

            -          Navigate to Products/Items -> Tare Group

            -          Click on “ + Tare Group

            -          Name the group

            -          Click on the “ + “ to add different levels in this group. Ex/ S,M,L.

            o   Sequence number starts with the first being 1 then 2,3,etc.

            o   Name would be Small, Medium, Large, for example.

            o   And the weight of the empty container.

            -          Then click save. Now, you can create your scale item and attach this.
