  • An industry-first solution to support stable store operation with one simple cable connection

    Somerset, NJ – Jan 13, 2020 – Star Micronics, a leading global manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is excited to announce SteadyLAN, an industry-first solution designed to provide power and network access to iPad POS through one Lightning cable connection.

    SteadyLAN is a patent pending technology available on certain mC-Print Series printers.  It provides wired Ethernet service to an iPad connected to a networked printer via the lightning cable (iOS10 or later required). SteadyLAN is available on the following mC-Print models: mCP21LBmCP31L, and mCP31LB.

    For locations where Wi-Fi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, this new technology is a world-first, providing the stability of a cabled LAN connection for iPad POS systems. By connecting the SteadyLAN-compatible printer to the Internet via wired LAN and connecting the printer and an iPad with a Lightning-USB cable, the iPad can use the Internet without Wi-Fi communication. At the same time, the iPad can communicate with the printer via Lightning USB and can simultaneously be charged from the printer.

    “We’re incredibly proud to announce SteadyLAN, as it will make unstable Wi-Fi signals a thing of the past,” said Jon Levin, Director of Product Management at Star Micronics. “We expect this new solution to greatly improve business operations in retail and restaurant POS settings, mobile ordering, and more.”

  • Featuring StarPRNT emulation, higher reliability, and improved performance

    Somerset, NJ – Oct. 10, 2019 – Star Micronics, a leading manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is excited to announce a new generation of its SK1 kiosk printers, the SK1-211 and SK1-311.

    The SK1-211 and SK1-311 will ship standard with StarPRNT emulation, which will allow software developers to take advantage of the full stack of Star Micronics technology, such as the StarPRNT SDKs and Star’s powerful line of drivers. Software developers that have already integrated Star products can now easily swap or extend their applications from a desktop printer to a kiosk printer. ESC/POS is still available for legacy integration.

    When used with Windows drivers, StarPRNT emulation also enables developers to take advantage of PromoPRNT, Star Micronics’ cloud-based marketing tool which allows for custom-designed promotions to print on the bottom of receipts.

    The new generation of kiosk printers will also have a longer paper cutter life (2 million cuts), a faster printing speed (250 millimeters per second), and easy paper loading via a thermal head open function.

    New options will be offered for the SK1-211 and SK1-311, including an LED presenter and anti-paper jam bezel, in addition to current options including a bezel, LED bezel, presenter, and larger paper roll holder.

    Featuring the same outer dimensions and variety of install positions as the SK1-21 and SK1-31, the new generation of kiosk printers will have USB and serial default interfaces, and a small, compact, and lightweight footprint.

    “We’re very eager for this new generation of kiosk printers to streamline point of sale environments,” said Christophe Naasz, Director of Business Development at Star Micronics. “Not only are these new products faster and more reliable, the addition of our modern StarPRNT emulation will allow easy integration of kiosk solutions into any environment already featuring Star printers.”
