The Vega 3000 products all share common graphical display. The display is separated into three specific areas:
Status bar
At the top of the display is a black bar with white text and coloured icons. This is known as the status bar and displays the following information from the left:
• Battery level indicator (only portable terminals). See 'Icon index' section for details.
• Date in dd/mm/yy format.
• Time in hh:mm format.
• Connection method icon. See icon index.
• Signal (GPRS or Wi-Fi) strength icon (V3M2 GPRS and V3M2 portable terminal only).

Middle of screen
The middle of the screen (largest area) is used to display choices for data entry requests, instructions, transaction progress and any other relevant information.
To represent specific operating modes, this part of the displays different colour backgrounds:
• Green: Transaction flow screens
• Blue: Reports and menus

Application bar
At the bottom of the screen there is a black bar with white text. This is known as the application
bar and it displays information about the transaction in progress.

If a key has not been pressed for 30 seconds, the terminal’s display will automatically revert to a
screen saver. This will be displayed for a further 3 minutes, after which the display will go blank
(V3M2 Wi-Fi and V3M2 GPRS). Pressing any key will turn the display back on.
