Epson’s main strength is its compact, energy saving and high precision technologies that it has acquired and developed over the years. The same applies to Epson’s TM series of thermal receipt printers where Epson has refined its original printer mechanisms and technologies to create products that are distinct from those of competitors such as Star, Bixolon, Citizen and SII. As part of its efforts to maintain its market leadership, Epson has also developed its original ESC/Pos command language for receipt printers.
As a result of these efforts, Epson receipt printers have become a global standard. Sold throughout the world, the company’s miniprinters have been highly evaluated by customers with sales now surpassing 300 million units.
The latest innovation in Epson’s long line of receipt printers are its series of smart receipt printers. Built on the firm foundations Epson has established over the years they have been created to meet the needs of the age.
Retailers can streamline operations, save space and reduce costs with the Epson TM-T88V-DT – a unique integrated terminal hub and thermal receipt printer designed to work with the web. Ideal for retailers moving from legacy systems to a full web environment, the TM-T88V-DT has a built-in controller that can seamlessly connect peripheral devices and work as a web server.
The TM-T88V-DT is equipped with an internal Apache web server, Windows® Embedded POSReady and ePOS-Device, enabling retailers to take full advantage of web-based applications and thin client solutions. POS peripherals - such as scanners, magnetic stripe readers, customer displays, scales and EFT (electronic funds transfer) terminals – can be conveniently controlled through the web without the need for additional drivers, and connected using the printer's USB ports and VGA port.
Offering retailers significant cost savings, the TM-T88V-DT is a standalone, all-in-one solution that doesn't need a connection to a PC or POS terminal. This reduces the amount of hardware needed, cutting energy usage and reducing maintenance and servicing expenses. The printer's 'paper save' feature lower costs further.
The TM-T88V-DT provides full resilience, with local storage that can be used to back-up POS applications and databases - so if the network becomes disconnected, sales won't stop.
With a stylish, compact design that saves valuable counter space, the TM-T88V-DT is available in new tones of black or white to match the latest mobile devices.
