For pay-by-weight items, Toast supports integration with a scale. Currently we support the following scale:
Using Pay-by-Weight on Items
To automatically pull the current scale weight when ordering an item, the item must be configured to "prompt for quantity".
To do this, navigate to the configuration page for the item. Under the Properties section, find the Prompt For Quantity option as show below and set it to Yes.
Save the item and publish to have the change reflected on the POS.
Now, on the POS, when you select the item a dialog with a keypad will appear. If the scale is connected, the weight will automatically appear and refresh automatically as the weight on the scale changes. If the weight needs to be manually overridden, you can simply type the amount and it will replace the weight provided by the scale.
Brecknell 6710u Scale Configuration
The Brecknell scale needs to be configured correctly in order to communicate successfully with the POS. The Brecknell document attached to this article has full details on how to configure your scale. The applicable information starts on page 26, "Setup Mode". Unfortunately the menu on the scale is a little difficult to navigate and understand, but the document does have a very detailed description of the different configuration options. Please ensure the following configuration options are set on your scale:
|User > COM1 > Lyout||SCP02|
|User > COM1 > Baud Rate||9600|
|User > COM1 > Byte Format||8N1|
|User > COM1 > Output Mode||CMD|
