BT-100U cash drawer trigger is designed to provide USB interfacing to the cash drawer. This allows the cash drawer, which is previously connected to POS printer or cash register, to be directly connected to a USB port of the computer. This means through the USB Trigger the cash drawer can be directly connected to the computer when this no printer used in the POS system.
The BT-100U USB trigger module uses a virtual serial port driver, making it appear to software like a standard RS232 serial port. This way existing POS software can communicate with the USB cash drawer trigger as though connected to a serial port.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect workaround!
We use Lightspeed EVO for our business and this is the PERFECT work around to use our existing cash drawers instead of spendings hundreds more to buy compatible ones with the program. This works flawlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replace an Unsupported Printer that Opened the Cash Box
I was very frustrated after my printer/cash box open was no longer supported. This was the best solution. All I needed was to open the cash box. I did not need a printer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Works with APG POS; seen as a serial port device
APG has discontinued production of their own RJ-to-USB adapters. Fortunately, this adapter works in its place. Note that despite converting to USB, the computer treats this as a serial adapter, not USB. So during configuration, make sure you choose the SERIAL cash drawer option, and all should work fine.
