Star Micronics launches entry-level Ethernet version of highly successful TSP100 futurePRNT series

International POS printer manufacturer Star Micronics has once again demonstrated its expertise in technology and printer design by further enhancing its unique TSP100 futurePRNTTM series. 

Following the phenomenal success to date of the TSP100 futurePRNT series, renowned for its revolutionary software, quality hardware and entry-level price, Star has truly enhanced the versatility of the printer by developing a new entry-level Ethernet version. 

Today, Ethernet is without doubt the connection method of choice for many IT managers in hospitality and retail environments requiring high speed, long distance and reliable communication.  By allowing multiple printers on a central hub or even multiple hubs to be managed remotely from any location on the network or the Internet, the advantages are clear.  However, to date, this extremely flexible means of communication has come with a cost. 

Star has effectively addressed this by developing a new entry-level Ethernet version - the TSP100LAN futurePRNTTM.  This printer effectively offers a simple and reliable network connection with new and powerful futurePRNT LAN features - an ‘Auto Fallback’ feature and a ‘Keep Alive’ feature.  

Enabling the print job to be automatically re-routed to another printer in the case of printer failure, the ‘Auto Fallback’ feature will guarantee that the next printer in the pool will automatically print the failed printer’s jobs, thus eliminating downtime.  If connection is lost due to PC/Hub failure or cable damage, the ‘Keep Alive’ feature ensures that the printer will negotiate with any networked host and automatically print an error.  This provides an immediate warning to the remote location, in their native language, that the printer is offline.


Beyond these features, the TSP100LAN futurePRNT incorporates a range of futurePRNT features including value-added software tools that will work alongside existing POS software.  These tools allow users to literally re-design receipts by modifying fonts, inserting logos or watermarks and to automatically add coupons based on the retailer’s pre-decided products or purchase values relevant to a specific transaction.  Furthermore, a number of accessories are provided at purchase while additional options including a splash proof cover and display stand for vertical operation are also available.  As in-store or in-restaurant graphics can be attached to the back of the stand (facing the customer) this provides a low cost vehicle to promote the store’s latest attraction such as extra discount on the store credit card, etc. 

As Simon Martin, Director and General Manager, Star Micronics EMEA, states, “With the launch of this new addition to the TSP100 futurePRNT series, Star Micronics further demonstrates its continuing commitment to innovation and clearly reinforces its position as the world’s leading point-of-sale printer manufacturer today.”
