Attaching a Cash Drawer


The Cable that runs from the Cash Drawer can be connected to a printer or directly to the E800/E500 Machine. Connecting to the printer will allow the Drawer to “POP” when a cash transaction is started. Cash drawers not connected to a receipt printer will need to be opened manually.


Each Cash Drawer Comes with a Cable. Each End is Labelled ” Drawer” and “Printer”. Make sure the side Labelled Drawer is plugged into the Cash Drawer and The Side Labeled Printer is plugged into the POS Machine or Receipt Printer.


Cash Drawers should be connected to the printer used for transaction receipts.
