International POS printer manufacturer Star Micronics has further enhanced its latest thermal receipt printer, the TSP100 futurePRNTTM, by developing the world’s first dedicated entry-level powered USB point-of-sale printer.

Being not only the lowest cost thermal receipt printer available today with ALL accessories included the TSP100 futurePRNT is also capable of printing both TrueTypeTM fonts and graphics at the same speed as ‘internal fonts’. Software tools that enhance the overall appearance of receipts and provide the option to create coupons based on pre-decided ‘trigger words’ and values, all without the need for expensive software changes, further highlight the sophistication and uniqueness of this printer.

Following the phenomenal success to date of the TSP100 futurePRNT Star has enhanced the versatility of the printer by developing the world’s first dedicated entry-level powered USB printer. With USB now the interface of choice, the TSP100 futurePRNT with powered USB combines both the power supply and interface and is an obvious long-term option that responds to growing retailer demand for economic UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) protection (both PC and printer covered by the one UPS) and reduced cabling for the smart retail environment.

The TSP100 futurePRNT with powered USB is therefore perfect to replace any single station printer with a free-of-charge upgrade path when a retailer moves to using Powered USB POS terminals. For example, for a single station printer this is achieved by simply changing the interface cable to USB and creating a Virtual Serial Port (if necessary) using the Star wizard included in the TSP100 futurePRNT Printer Properties Page.

Furthermore, with improved cable management and the benefit of being able to cost-effectively use the same Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) on both the POS station as well as the printer, at the same price as for a traditional printer, the TSP100 futurePRNT with powered USB provides significant cost advantages, increased reliability and the additional security that all transactions are protected.

As Simon Martin, Director and General Manager, Star Micronics EMEA, states, “Star Micronics has used its significant experience and expertise to develop the world’s first dedicated entry-level powered USB printer. This additional feature reinforces the position of the TSP100 futurePRNT as the most advanced thermal point-of-sale printer available today.”
