High Wycombe, UK, 23 June 2020 - With the growing adoption of the USB-C® standard, international POS printer manufacturer Star Micronics announces the launch of the latest additions to its mC-Print3™ series. The mCP31C and mCP31CB, equipped with a USB-C port, support standard communication with USB-C supporting devices such as Android™ / Windows phones and tablets, PCs, Macs etc, as well as USB Power Delivery. The mCP31C and mCP31CB allow a USB-C tablet to charge whilst connected to the printer. To date, this has not been possible with MicroUSB based tablets. Additionally, the mCP31C and mCP31CB offer SteadyLAN™ connectivity, previously only available on iOS devices, for supported tablets running Android, Windows, Linux and Mac. The printer can now act as the hub to a totally wired POS solution, powering the printer and tablet plus additional peripherals such as a barcode reader and customer display from a single plug / mains socket.
