Dotypos touch cash registers can also be connected to both classic scale via cable and small mobile wireless Bluetooth scales which can be used for weighted stocktaking. The cable connection of the scale can be certified.

Classic (big) scales, connectable by cable, are connected to a 14" and 15" touch cash register. Wireless Bluetooth scales can be connected to all offered cash registers. Both types of cash registers support the Bluetooth connection.


For a certified connection, Dotypos supports non-automatic scales (NAWI) using the communication protocol Checkout-Dialogue#06 (ECR Type#12) via RS232 or USB interface. The scale must be marked with the conformity label CE. The scale must also have a display with indication of the weight, unit price and total price of the weighted item.

Sometimes you may have to update the cash register firmware. If the communication between the cash register and the weighing machine keeps breaking down, please contact us.
