The Star TSP100 futurePRNT series is the first range of receipt star printers to offer USB only receipt printing on the market today.
The power that the USB communication interface provides has allowed Star Micronics to build a software driven PoS printer. The advantages of such a receipt printer are evident for applications in retail, hospitality, restaurants and convenience stores.
USB provides an immediate Plug 'n' Play installation which reduces the integration time to minutes. The TSP100 futurePRNT thermal receipt printer is provided with all standard operating systems drivers (Windows, Linux and Mac) and specialty drivers such as OPOS and JavaPOS.
The new TSP100GT version offers a high print speed of 250mm per second combined with a high gloss piano finish.
The Star TSP100LAN version features an Ethernet interface with "Keep Alive" feature. This communcates with any networked host and automatically print an error if the connection is lost due to PC / Hub failure or cable damage. In case of failure, an immediate warning is given on screen at the remote location that the printer is offline. At the printer end, a warning message is printed to notify that connection with the host has been lost.
The new TSP100 ECO is an eco-friendly version of the standard Star TSP100U model with a host of energy and cost saving features. It's power saving mode places the printer into standby whenever the host PC goes into standby, using up to 40% less power and earning the Star TSP100 ECO Energy Star compliance.
Paper saving features include a reduced top margin saving 8mm of paper per receipt and a "receipt on demand" tool which allows the retailer to choose whether or not a receipt is printed. Finally, the futurePRNT driver is capable of scaling an 80mm wide receipt on to 58mm wide paper without the need for any software changes. If used together, these features can use up to 70% less paper.
Star has further demonstrated its commitment to the ECO by carbon offsetting the cost of manufacture and 5 years of printer use. Star has purchased Certified Emission Reduction (CERS) carbon credits derived from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects as defined by the Kyoto Protocol and registered by CDM Executive Board of UN. The carbon credits will offset the CO2 emissions emitted from the TSP100 ECO manufacturing and disposal process and projected power consumption for up to 5 years. The CERs used will then be cancelled to complete the offsetting process.
