Installing the Receipt Printers

The install / config files for the Star Receipt printers (TSP series) are on the Systems folder on Archer:

\\archer\Systems\Millennium Sierra\Printing & Labels\Star receipt printer

Currently, the Libraries have several models of Star printers; all can use the same config / setup files as well the same settings in Sierra:

  • TSP 65II (newest model)
  • TSP 600 (most desks have this model)

Spare / replacement units are available; open a ticket by sending email to libhelp@uark.edu.
