APG Releases USB 554B Interface for Windows 10 and Plug and Play Integration

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – October 12th, 2021 – APG Cash Drawer, a fast-growing global manufacturer of cash management solutions, announced today the release of a new USB interface: the USBPro™ 554B Interface. This interface extends the company’s family of mobility and software integration solutions to provide retailers more visibility and flexibility with the operation of their cash drawer.

“We are committed to creating innovative connectivity solutions to help our customers meet the demands of new technology worldwide,” said Bob Stone, VP of Global Product. “The USBPro 554B interface release enhances our support for Windows 10, Android, Linux, and Mac OS X 10.5+, making it the first cash drawer interface of its kind for retailers. Features include seamless integration with Windows 10 Power Management and other benefits that point-of-sale providers can use to provide systems that allow retail and hospitality businesses to stay informed and focused on creating meaningful sales interactions.”

“By sourcing electricity through the connected device, cash drawers with this interface eliminate the need for external power; keeping retailer’s sales counters uncluttered and freeing up expensive serial ports,” said Ron Stephenson, Connectivity Manager at APG. “The USB 554B Interface provides real-time reporting with event-based logic (i.e. automatic notification of drawer open and close events, even when manually opened with a key). This provides higher security than typical cash drawer interface technologies, preventing unauthorized devices from opening the drawer.”

“The 554B interface provides headache-free connectivity, while its advanced HID application libraries allow for easy device identification and integration; saving you time and frustration through the installation process,” continued Stephenson. “Troubleshooting and set-up are made easy with a diagnostic LED, empowering retailers to respond quickly to inconsistencies.”

Available in Vasario, Series 4000, and Series 100 cash drawers, the USBPro™ 554B interface provides a sophisticated, plug-and-play solution and is available now through APG’s channel and distribution partners.
