Bottom rule

The new Ethernet LAN feature for SureMark™ 4610 printers provides an optional industry standard 10/100 Ethernet communication interface that can be installed in non-fiscal 4610 Models 1xx and 2xx as a factory orderable feature. With Ethernet connectivity, retailers can dramatically increase the flexibility of their 4610 printers. Supported functions include the following:

Extending today's available communication adapters, RS-232, USB, and RS-485, the new Ethernet adapter offers faster communication speeds and flexible operations. Included in this announcement are two new modular interface adapters: one for non-fiscal dual-station 4610 printers, Models 2xx, and a second for non-fiscal single-station 4610 printers, Models 1xx. The Ethernet LAN features require printers produced June 10, 2013, or later, and requisite firmware. Ethernet-capable printers can be identified by the date code on the printer and its packaging. New printer drivers, diagnostics and configuration utilities, are required.

For wireless printer connectivity, third-party Ethernet LAN to wireless bridges are available from OEMs. Contact your network provider or your Toshiba representative for more information.
