v9 POS: weight barcodes not recognized

I have a scale which prints EAN13 encoded barcodes with price and PLU.

I have a product with PLU 00001 in Odoo with a per kg price.

My scale prints the following code:


which corresponds to 0,410 kg.

The barcode is not recognised by the POS, I get a product missing message.

I also tried to enter a 21... code with check digit in the barcode field but it doesn't help.

What am I doing wrong?

Normal (non weight) EAN13 codes work perfectly.

I found the solution by myself.

I had to enter a 21... barcode in the product's data with a weight of 0 and the right checksum, then they started working.

This must be clearly stated in the documentation because I couldn't find it anywhere.

An automated EAN13 generator would be very handy which autofills the field according to the internal reference number.
