Combining sophistication with high functionality, Star’s mC-Print2™ and mC-Print3™ printers, part of Star’s new mCollection, have been designed to aesthetically match the sleek, modern design of tomorrow’s a retail and hospitality environments.
The super-compact, front-feed printers offer high-quality printing and exceptional functionality with up to 5 interfaces including Star CloudPRNT as well as hub functionality, controlling select USB peripherals attached to the printer including Cash Drawer, Scanner and Customer Display.
The mC-Print2 is a compact, high quality and versatile solution ideal for businesses operating traditional PC POS systems as well as those migrating to tablet and web-based POS.
Reliable Network Access for Tablet POS
Star’s unique SteadyLAN patent-pending technology is the market’s first POS printer solution to provide control of the printer and attached peripherals as well as Ethernet provision to tablets and mobile devices via the wired Ethernet port of the printer.
Simply by connecting a tablet to the mC-Print printer via the standard supplied USB cable and connecting the printer to the internet via a wired LAN connection, the tablet is able to connect to the internet without WiFi communication. At the same time, the tablet can communicate with the printer via USB or LAN and the printer will also charge the tablet
For locations where Wi-Fi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, this new technology is world-first, providing the stability of a cabled LAN connection for tablet POS systems.
SteadyLAN is available on the following mC-Print models: mCP21LB, mCP31L, and mCP31LB.
Star CloudPRNT provides intelligent printing from a web server from any network to Star printers anywhere in the world without the need for a local POS terminal enabling unparalleled flexibility for remote receipt and remote order printing using a standard receipt printer.
All of the mC-Print series is Cloud-ready. The MCP20 offers entry-level Cloud Printing with a USB and LAN interface. The MCP21LB offers Cloud Printing and features 2 additional USB host ports for local or Cloud-based peripheral control.
The mC-Print2 has never been simpler to set up. The mCollection driver set for Windows including OPOS and JavaPOS drivers are available to download from the Star Global Support Site. iOS and Android utility apps are on the respective App store or Google Play store, accessed via a QR code from the printer self-test, and the printers also have a web-based configuration.
On-line, responsive support manuals and diagnostics are available including animated LED indication making the mC-Print2 simple to install and configure from a mobile device.
Compact & Stylish
Ideal for both traditional and tablet POS, the mC-Print2 is Star’s smallest POS printer saving valuable counter space at just 96 x 113 x 100mm while printing high-quality 2″ (58mm) receipts, barcodes and graphics.
Its stylish cube design and front feed together with top paper loading and easy-to-use LED display make it ideal for retail, hospitality and mobile environments where space is at a premium.
With USB, Ethernet and Lightning USB interfaces as standard and the added option of a Bluetooth Interface, the mC-Print2 receipt printer can be integrated into any traditional or tablet POS application. Star’s unique iOS Lightning cable port provides device charging, direct cable data transfer between Apple iOS devices and the printer and, using Star’s unique SteadyLAN technology, internet connection for the device via the Ethernet port of the printer. This simplifies set-up by eliminating the need for pairing and passwords whilst providing a consistent stable internet connection where WiFi is not possible or is intermittent.
Star’s built-in WebPRNT and CloudPRNT technology allows for simple connection to local network or cloud-based systems. The mC-Print3 is even Star Cloud Services Ready with Digital Receipting and Internet Device Management already on board.
