Star Micronics is widely respected for its highly reliable dot matrix and thermal POS and hospitality printers. Building on this legacy, Star is pleased to announce the release of the SP500 series. The SP500 sets a new standard for design, features and performance in dot matrix printers while maintaining the rugged quality-driven package you have come to expect from Star Micronics.

The SP500 series features tear bar and auto cutter models and is available in putty and charcoal colors. The printer comes standard with serial or parallel interfaces. Paper handling is effortless, thanks to semi-automatic paper loading and a spindle-less paper roll holder. In applications requiring a journal copy, a paper rewind option is available for both models. The SP500 achieves optimal print speed by utilizing Star's new logic-seeking print mechanism and high speed 9-pin print head making text, graphics, and modifiers print at amazing speeds. It supports multiple copy printing and has black mark sensor for ticket and form applications. For compatibility in virtually any application, the SP500 is outfitted with Star and ESC/POS emulations. Windows, OPOS, and JavaPOS drivers round out a full suite of software support for the SP500.
