TransAct Technologies Inc. has developed a 10 Base-T Ethernet interface that is engineered for the POS market.

The device is an additional option to the printer interfaces currently available on the Ithaca iTherm 280, POSjet 1000, POSjet 1500 and BANKjet 1500 printers. With the new Ethernet interface, the printer becomes IP addressable, allowing it to be a shared device on an Ethernet network.

According to TransAct, the Ethernet interface implementation provides a utility that enables users to use a web page to configure protocols, assign IP addresses, and update Ethernet firmware. A driver is also provided to redirect an RS-232 serial communications port to an IP address, allowing users employing applications written for RS-232 serial to take advantage of Ethernet's benefits without requiring potentially expensive application changes.

Chairman, president and CEO Bart C. Shuldman said, "As the benefits of Ethernet connectivity become more widely adopted, we have provided our customers with a solution that is both user-friendly and cost effective."
