The Star TSP654II AirPrint is the first 58mm and 80mm receipt and ticket printer to get AirPrint certification -- and it will see release very soon.




The Star TSP654II AirPrint prints at 300 millimeters per second, at 203 dots per inch. The unit can be used in vertical or horizontal mode, and includes a wall mount brakcet in the box.

The unit is available in charcoal black or ultra white to match cash drawer options, and has a splash-proof housing available.

Connectivity includes Ethernet and wi-fi options. The TSP654II WebPRNT thermal printer, which should be similar to the TSP654II AirPrint, is rated for 60 million lines, and one million receipt cuts.

The AirPrint-certified model will be available in the coming months. Pricing is not yet available, but the TSP654II WebPRNT can be found for around $310.

    Huh. For some reason I assumed these existed soon after using iPads as registers happened. I guess I never really thought about it. I'm glad someone did.

    Some other payment systems have supported their own receipt printing methods. Square, for instance, has supported receipt printing with their iPad POS register system for years. In fact, the printer included with the Sqaure kit is made by this same company.

    Holee crap, Star Micronics is still around?  

    I remember when they were competing against Epson's MX-80 dot matrix printer.

    I'm oooooold.

    Oh yeah, and they still have lots of products.

    Speaking of old, check out this website from 1997. LOL

    Printer?  What's a printer? Is it boustrophedonic?

    I'm waiting for ApplePay POST terminals to transmit digital receipts back to your iPhone or Apple Watch -- and a budget program to categorize your expenses from the digital receipts.

    Now, where's my breakout box?

    Just for grins:

    For a corporate point of sale environment, one would have to be a fool to use AirPrint as it's woefully unreliable when compared to using static IPs.
