This information is primarily designed to help software developers integrate M-S Cash Drawer with their software.
Once integration is complete, this information can also be used by software developers, resellers, and end users for post-sales support.
All our electronic cash drawer models use the same modules/electronics/drivers.
Once you have integrated our Bluetooth, USB, serial, parallel cash drawers, you do not need to make programming changes per cash drawer model.
Our true HID USB cash drawer interface is port driven and does not require a power supply. In some cases our serial, KSC, cash drawers also do not require a power supply.
Our Bluetooth cash drawer interface is USB port driven and does not require a separate power adapter. In the absence of a USB port, you can use a wall adapter that supports a USB A connection.
