Cash drawer + thermal printer

I am getting my RMS v2.0 next week I dont want my cash register to open everytime I print "Duplicate" receipt
Should i connect my cash drawer via printer or should i connect it only
durect to my PC/terminal?
Any idea for reliable cash Drawer and thermal printer What are the preferred interface for cash drawer and printers ? Must they all be USB?
For cash drawer I am thinking Possiflex Intergra CR4000series. The one available near my location is using Serial interface, is this OK for cash drawer ?
For thermal printer is either Epson TM T88IV or Samsung Bixolon SP350 plus
Any advise ?
Thank you in advance, Joie

The Star TSP100 is great. I have two of them at two differnt stores and I will be replacing the rest of the stores with that printer. Its funny the cashiers can pick which reg they are on each day and they all want to be on the reg. with the tsp100 on it.

The Microstar TSP100 USB is perfect. The Epson TMT88IV is very good too.
Do not use Posiflex Aura 7000, the OPOS Driver does not work well with RMS.
I would go with the Drawer connected to the printer.

If i connect a drawer to printer. WIll it open if i configure the receipt is to be printed after asking a cashier and the cashier chooses No
This is for the case where customer doesnt really need a receipt for an igsinificant item for example giftwrapping service. I want to save my paper since the printer will journal the receipt
thank you

The drawer will open onl when you ake a payment and only if it is setup to open in the tender type. You can setup cash to pop up the drawer and Credit Card NOT to pop up the drawer. If you are taking a cash payment and not printing the receipt, the Drawer should pop up. If you are printing a duplicate receipt or any other report, the drawer should NOT pop up
Hope you find this info useful.

You can also configure RMS to not allow sales until the drawer is closed. Log into Manager and click on Database | Registers | select your POS register | Properties | Select Cash drawer | check off Wait for drawer close. Craig
