How Do I Change The Swappable Interface On My Star Printer?

Posted December 13, 2012

As a leading POS printer manufacturer, Star Micronics provides support for Serial, Parallel, USB, Powered USB, and Ethernet printing. We understand that systems, configuration, and POS software can change, which can result in a desired or necessary upgrade to POS hardware. Star printers have been affectionately coined by our customers as “Workhorses” because of their long operation lives and high reliability… Purchasing a new printer just to upgrade the interface is a costly and unnecessary expense to store and restaurant owners, which is why Star supports swappable interface connections for many of its models. This feature is especially convenient for users upgrading from old systems requiring serial interfaces to new systems that support USB or Ethernet connections.
