Direct USB Connection to Apple Devices


Star’s first game changers are the new mC-Print Series and TSP143IIIU printers with a unique key feature – these USB printers can communicate and charge simultaneously and directly via cable with an iPad, iPod or iPhone.  As well as working with a traditional POS terminal as a standard USB printer for Windows, Android, Linux and MAC, the mC-Print Series and Star TSP143IIIU USB printers can connect directly to an iPad or iPhone using the Apple-supplied Lightning cable for reliable USB communication as opposed to previous iOS wireless only technologies. As a result, the usual Bluetooth or WiFi / wired LAN setup issues around pairing, network infrastructure, connectivity, etc., are eliminated from a hardware perspective.  No other stand-alone POS printers can achieve this today. 

Simplicity itself, the iPad / iPhone can talk directly to the printer just as a USB printer talks to a traditional terminal, providing retailers with the reliability required in high volume transactions or environments where wireless communication is difficult.  These unique printers will now allow multisite operators to make blanket decisions across their estates by successfully combining the flexibility of tablet POS with the reliability of cabled POS terminals.

For retailers choosing to use the TSP143IIIU as a standard USB printer for traditional POS, savings in terms of installation costs can be made when faced with having to install a large number of printers across a store.  The free-of-charge value added futurePRNT™software, available across the entire TSP100 series, enables users to install high volume, custom setups without even taking the printer out of its box.  All settings are stored on the PC removing the need to pre-configure the printer itself while providing time and maintenance savings, ideal for large-scale installations. Additional futurePRNT tools include instant coupon as well as receipt re-design tools.  ECO features are also included with both horizontal and vertical text reduction, allowing retailers to benefit from paper saving features as well as a print on demand function. 

Ideal for both traditional and tablet POS, the new super-compact 58mm and 80mm mC-Print2 and mc-Print3 front-feed receipt printers offer high quality printing and exceptional functionality with up to 5 interfaces as well as hub functionality, controlling select USB peripherals attached to the printer including Cash Drawer, Scanner and Customer Display.
