Re: Weight Barcode on PoS

these are stand-alone scales (self-service by customers of the food store)
we are in the process of connecting them to Odoo.

will possibly be Mettler Toledo, 
but perhaps not the Ariva
since it can not print stickers.

ideally we download product and price info into the scale,
and have the sticker come out as a result.

additional fields like ingredients are to be added through an additional module,
and downloaded (for print) to the scale.

will let you know when we find out later this year.
Vladimir, if you are pursuing similar path, do let me know so we can exchange mutual findings.

thx, Ron

Which scale (brand and model) are you using with Odoo?

yes, the scale should print weight barcode not a price one.


and odoo should calculate the weight price from the unit price and print it.


I didn't try it as I have no access to a scale but from the barcode config screen and from the results you just shared, I believe it should work like this.

hi Mohamed, can you pls point out where do i go wrong?

how should a price barcode be interpreted?
is it better if i ask the scale for a weight barcode?

thx, Ron

from the weight result, it's only the amount which is read 0.623 should be replaced by the weight to get the accurate result.


also keep in mind that the system calculates the amount automatically from the 1kg price and the weight.

hi Mohamed, 

i also tried the weight code,
but then i get the following result in the POS:

Product: Cheese
0.632kg at 13.50 euro/kg = 8.53 euro (amount)

So that is also not working.
The scale prints a price barcode, not a weight code.

Further help is much appreciated.
Thx, Ron

Hi Ronald,


I think your configuration missing the weight codes setup .


but i don't know how to configure it , also the print out should have the weight info in its code to get it printed correctly .



Regards,

I managed to get price barcodes up and running in POS,
but the POS shows wrong information.

Here's what i have and did:

(a) i have a scale printout with the following information:
Product name: Cheese
Weight: 0.468 kg
Price/kg: 13.50 euro
Amount: 6.32 euro
Barcode: 2225225006325

As you can see, the Barcode is built up like this:
22 = price barcode
252250 = product code
0632 = price in eurocents
5 = checksum


(b) pos.config:
Price Barcodes: 22xxxxxNNNDDx

(c) product.product:
Unit of measure: kg
Sale price: 13.50 euro
Barcode: 2225225000002
 ==> which i got by editing the product, clicking on "Set a Custom EAN" and entering "22252250" which is the leading combination of "22" plus the 6 digit product code.

Note that by having the "22" pattern match the EAN of the product, this function works.
All efforts with "Internal Reference" failed so far. So my guess is this is the right way to work with price EAN codes.

(c) going to the POS, scanning the scale printout, 
i would expect the following:
Cheese, 0.468 kg at 13.50 euro/kg, amount = 6.32 euro

POS instead displays the following:
Cheese, 1 kg at 6.32 euro/kg, amount = 6.32 euro


Question:
Where in my setup do i go wrong?

Thx, Ron

@Ronald- I tried 13 digits also but no luck.

@Nuria- My barcode scanner is a powerful one and is giving me correct output. My question here is does Odoo v8 has code written to handle Weight Barcode, Price Barcode, Discount Barcode, etc. If yes, then Odoo should come up with some kind of tutorial or sample video or if anyone in the community have successfully configured then please share your experience with us.

Thanks.

Hi Aasim,

A while back there was a problem with the barcode scanning facilities, by which it would randomly take part of the barcode instead of the whole one.

For instance, in your example of 219650000186, if you scanned it you might get the following results randomly:
21965
219650000
219650
etc.

Is that what is happening?

This bug had a fix here https://github.com/odoo/odoo/commit/df4bd736f10d8c8ca646fbef58927bf7446146f0, which was merged to master.

I hope this helped,
Nuria

Hello,

I want to know how weight barcode works. This is what I gave in PoS Configuration for Weight Barcode- 21xxxxxxNNNNN (6 times x followed by 5 times N).
In my Product Master, in Internal Reference field I gave 96500 and unit of measure as grams.

Now, the weighing scale is configured to generate barcode in above format. It gives output as 219650000186 (meaning it is 186 grams). But Odoo PoS gives Barcode doesn't exist in Point of Sale error.

Did I miss anything or it is wrongly configuration?

Regards.
