Star Micronics has launched the TSP847II AirPrint POS printer (https://star-emea.com/products/tsp847ii-airprint/). This printer, which costs approximately $400, follows the recently launched Star TSP654II AirPrint and is the first 112mm wide receipt, barcode, label and ticket POS printer on the market to be Apple AirPrint certified.
AirPrint provides easy mobile printing solutions for Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod and MacBook users on any private network with the key objective to be able to wirelessly print via the customer’s network without installing specific printer drivers. With AirPrint support pre-installed on iOS devices, the user is able to connect to and print from the required printer.
Traditionally, AirPrint has been purely the domain of wider output inkjet and laser printers for business and personal use, but Apple has now confirmed its rightful place in the POS retail and hospitality sectors with its certification of both the TSP654II AirPrint and TSP847II AirPrint from Star.
Star’s TSP847II AirPrint is the latest addition to its multifunctional TSP800II series. Automatically printing A4 output on 112mm wide paper, labels or tickets simply by selecting the TSP800 option within the native OS print function, the TSP847II AirPrint is a unique Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod A4 to virtual A6 replacement printer. With up to 90% lower running costs when compared with a typical A4 laser printer, the TSP847II AirPrint offers an effective low cost, space saving alternative for use with iOS devices.
