Ethernet Connectivity for Tablet POS
Star’s unique SteadyLAN technology makes unstable Wi-Fi signals a thing of the past!
Star’s unique SteadyLAN technology is the market’s first solution to provide control of the printer and attached peripherals as well as Ethernet provision to tablets and mobile devices via the wired Ethernet port of the printer.
Simply by connecting a tablet to the mC-Print printer via the standard supplied USB cable and connecting the printer to the internet via a wired LAN connection, the tablet is able to connect to the internet without WiFi communication. At the same time, the tablet can communicate with the printer via USB or LAN and the printer will also charge the tablet.
For locations where WiFi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, the stability of a cabled internet connection combined with the flexibility of Tablet POS is now possible.
- SteadyLAN™ provides direct cabled control of the printer and attached peripherals
- Ethernet provision to the tablet, from the wired Ethernet port of the printer.
- Device charging from the printer
- Available free of charge on mCP21LB, mCP31L, mCP31LB, mCP31C, mCP31CB with firmware version 2.3 or later, which is available free of charge via the mC-Print Utility application.
- iOS10 or later required
|Functions||SteadyLAN™ provides direct cabled control of the printer and attached peripherals, as well as Ethernet provision to the tablet, from the wired Ethernet port of the printer.|
|Software Settings||ProxiPRNT uses BLE radio waves and as the radio strength varies depending on the distance from the POS, ProxiPRNT allows you to enable/disable operation of the Star Products based on the radio strength of BLE from the ProxiPRNT Beacon, rather than the actual distance.|
|Hardware Configuration||SteadyLAN can be used by updating the printer firmware to version 2.3 or later, which is available free of charge via the mC-Print Utility application.|
|Software Configuration||iOS10 or later required.|
|Data Specifications||SteadyLAN can be used with iOS mobile devices|
