Star Micronics, a manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is excited to announce the new USB versions of the Value Series and Max Series Cash Drawers. This will allow retailers or restaurants only offering digital or email receipts to still collect and manage cash without requiring a receipt printer.
The CD3 Value Series and SMD2 Max Series cash drawers will still offer the same design, size, and reliability that users love, but with the option for a USB driven interface. This also provides a solution when dual cash drawers are needed in high-cash environments and the user wants to manage each drawer independently.
The USB Cash Drawers requires no external power supply and allows the host to see if the cash drawer is connected, or if it gets disconnected. Star Micronics provides StarPRNT SDK for Android, and Windows drivers for the CD3 and SMD2 USB cash drawers. Up to 8 USB cash drawers can be connected to one host device, making it the ideal solution for large restaurants.
