The following hardware has been tested to work with Amigo Pos 8. Amigo Pos has been used extensively with POS-X, Epson, Star, Magtek, IdTech, Metrologic, Honeywell and many other manufacturers' receipt printers, remote printers, barcode scanners, magnetic card readers and rear-facing customer displays. The following list is provided as a reference only; Amigo Pos does not sell peripherals or other devices. Note that all devices can be tested with the evaluation version of Amigo Pos 8 in Back Office/Settings/Peripherals.
All-In-One Touch Screen Terminals
Refer to the system requirements before selecting an all-in-one.
Amigo Pos 8 works with ESC/POS or Star mode compatible thermal receipt printers (with any interface) including the following (serial port printers are not recommended due to complicated configuration):
Amigo Pos 8 works well with Epson ESC/POS compatible dot matrix and thermal kitchen printers including all thermal receipt printers listed above and the following impact printers:
Note: A print server is required to connect your remote printer to the network router. Many printer models are available with an optional Ethernet port, eliminating the need for a separate print server. Serial port printers are not recommended.
Amigo Pos 8 works well with printer-driven or OPOS-compatible cash drawers. Printer-driven drawers are recommended for easier setup. When using printer driven drawers, the drawer type must match your printer type. Also, if using 2 printer-driven drawers at the same pos station, a Y-Cable is required.
Magnetic Card Readers
Amigo Pos 8 works with wedge-type magnetic card readers capable of decoding Tracks I, II, and III. Amigo Pos 8 does not support serial or HID card readers. Datacap NETePay and Mercury users should refer to the Datacap website for dsiPDCX™ Compatible Devices (Out of Scope).
Amigo Pos 8 works well with any serial interface barcode scanner that is capable of transmitting a carriage return
Amigo Pos 8 works with displays that are capable of interpreting the Epson ESC/POS, Ultimate Tech or LC command sets.
Note: You must use a customer display with a serial interface. A USB interface is acceptable if drivers are provided that create a virtual serial port, such as the drivers included with the LD9000.
When configuring your display, you may have to set dip switches on the display to match the computer's port settings. For Ultimate Tech and Epson, use 9600|8|N|1|XOn/XOff, and configure your computer's port in the device manager with identical settings.
Touch Screen Monitors
Amigo Pos 8 works well with any inexpensive monitor that is capable of 1024x768px or better screen resolution. Select a touch screen monitor that offers full compatibility with the Windows operating system such as:
Note: Many monitors offer options such as integrated customer display and magnetic card swiper. Ensure that the customer display and card swiper appear on the list of compatible devices before ordering. The swiper must be keyboard wedge type and the customer display must support the Epson, Ultimate Tech or LC command set.
The Amigo Pos 8 tablet edition works works with inexpensive 32GB Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (not Windows RT) 7-inch and 8-inch tablets such as the tablets listed below.
Amigo Pos 8 works with callerid boxes from callerid.com. The ethernet interface is strongly recommended for ease of setup; the serial interface version has also been tested and certified. The Whozz Calling? Basic Serial or Ethernet edition is sufficient; Amigo Pos does not currently support the outgoing call features of the Whozz Calling? Deluxe models.
Mini Print Servers (for Prep Printers)
Amigo Pos 8 works with any print server that is compatible with your configuration and MS Windows. The print server printer interface must match the interface on the remote printer. Print servers are not recommended for printers with a USB interface. We strongly recommend purchasing a printer with an internal print server which simplifies the installation process and eliminates the need for an additional power supply.
AmigoPOS is compatible with serial port scales that use the NCI protocol. Most popular scales such as the CAS PD-2 POS/Checkout Scale and NCI Weigh-tronix (Avery Berkel) 6720 use the NCI protocol or can be programmed to use the NCI protocol.
Amigo Pos 8 is currently compatible with the CAS LP-1000 series of Deli scales or any scale capable of printing random weight barcodes in the format shown in the random weight barcode help topic. Your barcodes should be set up to print as outlined in the help manual.
Amigo Pos 8 is compatible with the best selling Digital Persona U.are.U 4000B and 4500 USB Fingerprint Readers. Download the datasheet here. Contact your hardware vendor to inquire about all-in-one touch terminals with the integrated Digital Persona fingerprint module. Amigo Pos automatically installs any required drivers for this reader. No additional drivers or setup required.
