SMALL - SIMPLE - COMPLETE
Micro32 is a computer purposely studied and developed for the managing of billiard parlours and for all cases in which one wishes to charge for the time used on a given unit. The specialized designed without the use of a personal computer offers many advantages.
Simple to learn and to use. A specially designed keyboard with a button for each table and only a few operational buttons makes the unit easy and quick to use. The tables in action are indicated by the red lights on the respective numbered buttons so you can have an immediate picture of the situation at the moment.
Small and sturdy metal container (37 x 16 x 11 cm). Easy to set up, it may be placed on a table or fastened to a wall while taking advantage of relative inclined positions for better visualization and operation.
A picture of the charges on a red display terminal which can be seen easily from a distance even by the customers. A picture of messages for the operator on a liquid crystal display terminal with two (2) lines of forty (40) characters each.
No use of discs for keeping data. The data remain in the memory bank for at least twenty (20) years without any need for maintenance. The clock inside the unit is used to manage the hourly bands and it too has a 20-years life span. The clock has been calibrated for a maximum error of only two minutes over the course of a year.
Ready for resale: small, easy to use, reliable, well built for shipment, no monitor or discs, a choice of five languages (English, Italian, German, French and Spanish) for the displayed messages as well as a choice of the monetary unit of any country whatsoever, it is supplied ready to be connected to the accessories (printer, lamp control, ball control).
Management of 32 tables, in regard both the charge due for the length of the game and that due for the food and drink consumed by the players, charges which can easily be assigned to the table involved. When the game is over, you will have available an account of the bar bill as well charge for the game.
Programmable rates: the tables can be divided into 6 groups. Each group has a minimum game price, three normal hourly tariffs and three club tariffs (activated using the START CLUB button instead of the START button). The tariffs can alternate throughout the whole of the week by programming the hourly bands.
Management of the count totalizer with two keys, ideal for premises with employees. The SERVICE key permits your employees to manage separate and partial counts (for games and food and drink consumption). The INSTALLATION key is used to close the container so as to avoid mishandling, and it also permits access to the programming and to the display of different totalizers which govern separately the game and the food-and-drink charges. There are individual and general totalizers that can be reset to zero, with a recording of the hour and date of the last reset to zero, and there are general totalizers which cannot be reset to zero.
An internal battery allows the MICRO32 to be turned on in the event of electrical blackout so that you will be able to get a display of the charges due. That battery does NOT serve to keep data in a memory bank; such data will be retained however even if the battery is removed.

When a game start (START) is given to the MICRO32, the ball door opens automatically thus allowing the player to take the tray holding the balls. When the tray with ALL the balls is replaced into the BOX and the door is closed (the door will not close if even one ball is missing), the MICRO32 will stop the time count and display game-over to the operator.
