The common cash drawers on the market are printer driven (see the P001 POS printer) and connected by a telephone style cable known as an RJ12 connector. It plugs directly into the DK (Drawer Kick) port on your receipt printer. They are a standard 24 volt drawers because that is the voltage supplied by the printer to activate the internal solenoid and open the cash drawer.
They are available in a few styles including Standard Full Size, Compact and Flip Top. ATTENTION: as standard we have chosen for the black color and a 24V connection. Of course you can order other colors (like grey, white, inox), other voltages (6/12/24/36V) and connector. Please contact us in that case!
Flip Top cash drawer (like our CD 4617 B HD Flip Top) open from the top and can be mounted within a counter top or bench where the top of the cash drawer will flip in an upwards position. You can also use these as manual cash drawers using the key that is supplied.
Compact cash drawers (for example CD 2532 and CD 3333) are great for space saving. If you need a compact or small footprint, then going with a compact cash drawer is the way to go. The compact drawers are mainly measured in width because although compact, they still require space to put notes in the back section and coins in the front. There is normally around 10mm difference in height as well which can make that difference you require to fit the cash drawer in the space you have allowed for.
