Star Micronics introduces POS connectivity solutions
Star Micronics' new mC-Print 2 and mC-Print 3 POS connectivity solutions are designed to aesthetically match the design of the modern retail environment and provide the retailer with feature-rich, front-feed compact printers, according to a press release. With a print speed up to 250 millimeters per second, the printers can include Ethernet LAN; Bluetooth (MFi); traditional USB; lightning USB; and CloudPRNT, as well as hub functionality for more than one peripheral, scanner, customer display, etc.
Star's thin paper support and choice of 80- millimeter 58-millimeter print width with ECO tools help retailers to economize on paper usage and reduce environmental impact. In addition, the Ethernet/static IP address setup using the Star Utility via USB minimizes installation costs, according to the release.
Incorporating Star's cloud services with digital receipting and Internet device management, mC-Print offers a POS printer that includes onboard marketing and receipt tools.
The latest addition to the TSP100 futurePRNT series is the TSP143IIIU, a USB receipt printer to communicate and charge simultaneously and directly via the Apple supplied lightning cable with an iPad, iPod or iPhone for reliable USB communication. This printer addresses issues connected with wireless connection and combines the flexibility and cost savings of tablet POS with the reliability of traditional POS.
Retailers can purchase a Star TSP654II with a traditional interface. The interface can also be used with other Star printer models that offer 80/112-millimeter label, ticket and receipt printing — TSP743II and TSP847II, as well as the SP700 matrix printer.
Alternatively, the TSP654II HI X Connect receipt printer has the interface built in.
A combined Bluetooth printer and cash drawer mobile point-of-purchase station, Star's mPOP is 10 centimeters high and 30 centimeters wide. With the POPPack option that includes a black or white tablet stand (alternative colors are available) and metal plate, users can create an mPOS station.
Star also recently introduced the SM-L300 with OLED display. Featuring Bluetooth 4 connectivity as well as Classic Bluetooth, the SM-L300 is able to connect with multiple Apple iOS devices, according to the release.
Alongside receipts, this 80-millimeter printer can print variable width traditional and liner-free re-stick labels from 40 to 80 millimeters wide and also features reflective, transmissive and paper end sensors. Designed to work from a person's belt with a 41-hour battery life or using the 5V counter top cradle charger, this printer offers mobility boxes and can be charged using a micro USB cable.
