The TM-T88VI iHub adds intelligent hub functionality to Epson's new state-of-the-art receipt printer, designed to work with both traditional PC-based POS systems and increasingly popular web and tablet solutions. The range of peripheral and wireless connectivity options make it ideal for shop, bar and restaurant owners who want to develop effective new ways of interacting with customers.
The versatile TM-T88VI iHub offers retailers, restaurants, bars and other commercial businesses the chance to explore web and mobile POS solutions without losing the functionality of a traditional PC-based system, as both can be run in parallel. This co-existence means users can migrate at the speed they want, run both systems at once, or just stick to a traditional setup.
The TM-T88VI iHub offers the user a wide range of connectivity options, including four USB-A connections, one of which can charge a tablet, as well as USB-B, serial and Wi-Fi. This allows the connection of a wide range of peripherals, including barcode scanners, displays and mobile devices.
High performance and low running costs
As well as flexibility, the TM-T88VI iHub gives outstanding performance, with print speeds of up to 350mm/s, and excellent reliability. A backwards paper-feeding function helps save paper without affecting performance, reducing running costs and paper waste.
Server Direct Print functionality allows the TM-T88VI iHub to print direct from a web server. It also supports beacons, to help mobile devices identify the nearest printer, making it ideal for POS environments with multiple printer installations, while NFC support makes it easy to pair tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.
