The FVP-10 is designed to bring an array of new benefits like front loading, onboard USB, receipt compression for paper saving and multiple mounting options due to its “platform” design combined with the high quality and high-speed printer performance that POS users have come to expect from Star.

StarMicronics has developed the FVP-10 to assist users who:

The FVP-10 can support up to 7 pounds of accessories on its top. Text to voice feature enables users to communicate important information with both staff and customers. Voice alerts to remind an operator to start a specific task can easily be programmed.
