Android POS Starter Package Setup Guide
Your Android Starter Package includes:
- CB2002, A sturdy Star, lockable cash drawer.
- A Star wifi receipt printer, no wires required!
- A solid, attractive C Frame POS stand (10" tablets only)
Please note that this package does NOT include an Android tablet
The first thing to do is to get the printer and the cash drawer setup.
Power the printer on and press the 'Pair' button at the back of the printer until the blue light flashes, as shown in the diagram below.
Press the WPS button of the access point or router. When the printer connects to the network, it will self print the connection information and its blue light will change from flashing to solid blue. The self print from the printer with it's connection information should look like the following.
NB: WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a standard for making easy connections between wireless networking devices. Depending on the manufacturer of your router, buttons that have been displayed as "AOSS", "Easy wireless start", "JumpStart" etc. may also be handled equivalently to WPS.
After you have connected your printer to your own network the AirPOS application will be able to find the printer.
Open the AirPOS POS and go into settings by clicking on the grey cogwheel icon at the top right of the screen. From the left navigation panel click on ‘Peripherals’ and then press the green ‘Add printer’ button.
A popup will appear to say that AirPOS is '...Searching'
After a moment the popup will change to show all Star network printers found in a blue box with their IP Address.
Tap on your printer when it appears and then tap on the 'Next' button.
A new popup window will open to prompt you for the Printer Type. From the menu select ‘Star Raster Printer (TSP100 series)’.
Run a test print just to confirm everything is working then press the 'Use this printer' button to save your selections.
- The Cash Drawer is kicked by an electrical impulse from the printer so the cash drawer connects into the printer at the port marked ‘DK’ via the RJ11 cable.
- Now that your printer and cash drawer are connected the next step is to setup your PayPal Here Chip & PIN card reader (if applicable). To do this click on the link below.
How to Setup the C Frame Universal 10" Tablet Stand
The C Frame tablet enclosure for iPad and Android consists of two components, a 10" Universal tablet stand and a cash drawer enclosure that the stand attaches to for security and ease of use (not included in this package). The cash drawer enclosure helps to protect your cash drawer as well as providing a secure base for the tablet stand, with a rotation feature allowing the tablet stand to move around as required on a solid base.
If you're attaching the stand to a cash drawer cover then align the C - Frame base with the screw hole pattern in the drawer cover as shown in the diagram below.
You should mount the C-Frame rotating base to the cash drawer cover using the screws provided. Align and tighten the first screw then swivel the base to provide access to the second and third screw holes in the drawer cover.
Once attached to the drawer cover loosen the bottom two nuts at the back of the stand and remove the two at the top as shown in the diagram on the left below.
Insert the tablet, then the cable and align the tablet within the metal frame. Replace the top two nuts and close the C-Frame. The cable will pass through the slot in the back at the base of the C-Frame near the rotation point. If you are not using the drawer cover then attach the rubber mat to the rotating base of the frame. This will prevent the frame from sliding when in use.
