This helpful serial cable kit comes with everything needed to attach select Star barcode scanner models to POS systems built with personal computers.

SOMERSET, NJ – Star Micronics, a leading manufacturer of mobile, point-of-sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is now offering a serial cable adaptor for select models of its 2D barcode scanner line. This cable adaptor allows retailers and business owners using PCs as part of their POS systems to enjoy all the same features and benefits of Star scanners.

With a variety of uses in retail, warehouse, hospitality, shipping, and more, Star’s IP-rated scanner line includes desktop, handheld, and wireless handheld models. They’re built tough and drop-resistant (up to 1.2m) with high-powered CPUs to increase efficiency and productivity. With Star’s cost-effective solutions, users get high-performance 2D barcode scanners for the price of 1D.
