Type-C is the next trend of Io interface for POS system

Xizhi, Taiwan, February 12, 2022 –(PR.com)– The I/O interface is crucial for a POS system that connects to multiple devices, which is also the top priority for the purchase of a point of sale system. In terms of designing a POS system, it needs to consider several types of connectors to connect to keypad, cash drawer, barcode scanner, camera, RFID, MSR , etc., and thus provide better extensibility, functionality and, above all, better service.

Currently, the dominant I/O interface is the USB Type A connector which is commonly used in the main peripherals of a POS system, but in 2019 the USB Implementers Forum, whose members such as ‘Apple, HP, Microsoft, Intel, announced that Type-C is the standard connector of USB4 which increases data transmission to 40Gbps, which is twice as fast as USB3. Therefore, to support faster data transmission, USB Type-C will eventually replace Type-A in the future to connect to devices that need to transmit a lot of data to display multimedia content and provide higher computing power.

In the POS system, we see the latest POS terminals have integrated the Type-C port to connect to the second screen to display promotional content or online interactive campaign. Meanwhile, users can connect the POS system to a PC or laptop through the Type-C port to run multiple programs instantly on the screen. Plus, Type-C can be the high-power power cable for powering peripherals while being even more user-friendly since you can plug in both sides of the connector.

Type-C is suitable for slim devices due to its size and functionality. Both Apple and Google have adopted Type-C as the main connection interface in their next-generation smartphone. As the world’s leading manufacturer of POS terminals, Clentron follows the latest trend by integrating 2 Type-C ports into the I/O interface of the latest model PT2700, and is equipped with several features to speed up efficiency of the cash register.

The high flexibility and compatibility of Clientron PT2700 aims to provide the best and latest POS system to partners. If you need more information, please visit their website.
