Cashless vending is something that has seen increasing popularity particularly in the school environment. So much easier to use than money, cashless vending enables kids to use a card that has been topped up with money to buy their lunch rather than risk carrying cash around and lose it or have it stolen.
But it’s not just schools that have adopted the cashless vending idea – offices and factories are finding it is an easier way for staff to get snacks and coffee from a vending machine.
As a cashless vending system only really has the requirement to produce a receipt, there is a wealth of printers that could be used.
Designed with flexibility in mind, the NP-2411 Cashless Vending printer features a small footprint - perfect for the kiosk environment. Ideal for printing in applications such as information kiosks and ticket issue, the NP-2411 features an auto paper loading mechanism, jam free cutter, fully opening print head and a paper low/out indicators.
With dimensions of just 124.6mm wide x 123.5mm deep x 77.3mm high, the printer features a 24VDC supply, drivers for Windows XP/2000/Vista/CE and Linux CUPS and interfaces for USB and RS232C Serial.
Options include a paper bezel and a multi-position large capacity paper roll holder (increases paper capacity from 80mm diameter to 200mm diameter).
The TSP700II Packaged Cashless Vending kiosk printer is the fastest printer of its type on the market, with a staggering print speed of 250mm per second.
The TSP700II uses Star's simple "Drop-In & Print" paper loading feature and can accept paper rolls of 58mm, 80mm and 82.5mm wide on tickets of up to 150gsm.
An external paper feed path for large diameter and fan fold tickets is included as standard. The "Auto-Logo" feature allows users to very simply use promotional pictures and logos to enhance their receipts. Download the images to the Flash ROM using the driver/utility, associated a trigger word and the printer will automatically print the coupon whenever the matching word appears in the print data. Simple and with no software changes required.
Another unique feature of the TSP700II is the automatic text rotation. Simply select this option in the printer driver and all print output will be automatically rotated by 180 degrees.
The TSP700 has a host of extra features including two colour printing, wall and desk mount brackets, interchangeable interfaces and drivers for most operating systems.
