POS Pole Display Manual
Hardware Parts, setup and cable connections:
The “POS-X XP8200” has a USB connection. Simply plug the USB cable into an open USB port on your computer. Windows will automatically recognize that a new device has been attached.
Windows should install it automatically. If not, you will be prompted with the Found New Hardware Wizard. Select the option “Yes, this time only” and select “Next”.
Continue through the wizard until it is completed. If Windows is unable to install the driver automatically, you can insert the “driver disk” that came with the package Once the driver is installed, this will create a “Com Port” in your computer’s Device Manager.
Go to Device Manager, Click on “Start” Right Click “My Computer” Select “Properties”
Select “Hardware” then “Device Manager”.
Note the COM Port number on the Prolific USB-to-Serial Com Port (in the below example it is “COM2”). This will be use to configure the Pole Display in AccuPOS.
