    PRINTING WITH THE M2000 The M2000 is easily configured to provide you with total printing freedom. Create and generate tickets without the need for a PC or data controller. This Printing Guide provides information for Western Scale customers regarding the M2000 CUSTOM TICKET EDITOR and the accompanying CUSTOM TICKET FORMATTER Software package.

    M2000 PRINTING FEATURES

    Print to practically ANY printer. Easily create customized weight tickets. Multiple tickets (up to 100) can

    be used.

    The M2000 has 4 kilobytes of memory dedicated to tickets. This memory is referred to as the TICKET BUFFER.

    Explore the versatility of the M2000 using tickets to create customized

    indicator functions.

    Create and edit tickets on-site with the built-in TICKET EDITOR. No equipment needed!

    Create and edit tickets faster and easier with the TICKET FORMATTER

    software (PC Required).

    Assign HOT KEYS to tickets.

    THINGS TO REMEMBER:

    Ticket numbers are assigned by the M2000 when you create a new ticket. Ticket numbers can be anywhere between 200 and 299.

    The M2000 will not print if the scale is in MOTION or OVERLOADED! If multiple tickets are used, the M2000 recalls the last ticket number

    printed. For repeat issues of a ticket, only the [PRINT/SELECT] key needs to be pressed.

    PRINT A TICKET

    In Normal Weighing Mode, tickets are called by number, the same way M2000 functions are selected. Enter the Ticket number followed by the [PRINT/SELECT] key.

    To print this ticket again, just press the [PRINT/SELECT] key. The M2000 recalls the last ticket format printed.

    To print a different ticket format (Ex. Ticket 200 = Inbound ticket and Ticket 201 = Outbound ticket), enter the new ticket number followed by the [PRINT/SELECT] key.

    To avoid having to switch the ticket number often, assign different tickets to HOT KEYS on the M2000. (See Page 17)

    IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT, IN ORDER TO PRINT TICKETS, THE COM PORTS ON THE M2000 MAY REQUIRE CONFIGURATION. PLEASE CONSULT THE SERIAL COMMUNICATIONS SECTION OF THE M2000 TECHNICAL MANUAL.
