TSP143III Printer Description

The TSP143III is the faster, easier, and better POS printing solution. Already a leading player in the mPOS market, Star Micronics' TSP143III is offered with WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth, or USB interface connection for an easy-to-use and ready-to-go installation. The TSP143III now offers a web configuration page for the WLAN and LAN TSP143III printers, a simpler way for all devices to connect to the WLAN printer for set-up with AP mode, an easy Bluetooth pairing connection, and a "plug and play" USB connection. For the USB version, there will be a new USB serial number feature so the PC will detect the TSP143IIIU on its Windows platform using any USB port. The new thermal receipt printer is an upgrade of the TSP100, printing at almost twice the speed with a special de-curl function, and it fully compatible with its previous version, requiring no additional integration or development.


The TSP143IIIU includes a special feature not available anywhere else in the POS industry, printer communication and tablet charging through lighting cable connection. Removing clutter from the workspace, the lightning connection takes the Apple charger off your table, leaving one wire for two jobs.

With included internal power supply, power cables, complete mounting kits, and paper roll, the TSP143III is the perfect printer for any mPOS bundle. Star has also added an additional USB type-A connector for one convenient power source for your tablet or mobile device. The TSP143III prints at a high-speed of 43 RPM (250mm/s) and includes "drop-in & print" paper loading and a guillotine auto-cutter.

Combined with its powerful futurePRNT Windows software, users can enhance their printed receipts to add graphics (logos and coupons), print multiple copies, or use the text processing function to replace printed information or trigger a coupon, and much, much more. The TSP143III can also be used with Star Micronics AllReceipts™ digital receipt app, allowing shoppers to manage their receipts digitally, and retailers to receive instant feedback on customer satisfaction.
