Star Micronics’ SteadyLAN is a unique POS connectivity solution that provides the stability of a cabled LAN connection for iPad POS systems via the standard Apple Lightning cable to ensure continuous network access.
SteadyLAN solution offers reliable connectivity with iOS devices and is ideal for locations where Wi-Fi connectivity is not possible or unreliable. It provides direct cabled control of the printer and attached peripherals as well as Ethernet provision to the iPad from the wired Ethernet port of the printer.
By simply connecting the iPad to the Star mC-Print printer (mCP21LB, mCP31L or mCP31LB) via the standard Apple Lightning cable, or USB-C for iPad Pro, and connecting the printer to the Internet via a wired LAN connection, the iPad is able to connect to the Internet without Wi-Fi communication. Furthermore, the iPad can communicate with the printer via the Lightning cable and the printer will also charge the iPad.
