Avoiding Power Problems with Your Point of Sale System

Supplying Power To Your Equipment.

Is your power system causing needless problems to your Point of Sale System?  Since multiple POS terminals are networked together in much the same way that computer systems in offices are linked, any fluctuations in the electrical supply can cause noise that affects the entire network.  Mechanical devices like microwaves, meat-slicers and blenders which are plugged into the same electrical circuit may be responsible for these fluctuations and negatively affect your POS System.

Preventive measures include the following:

  • Analyzing your power situation by your vendor for use of the right safeguards.
  • Power filtering to eliminate spikes and noise before they affect your terminals.

  • Installing a dedicated circuit with an isolated ground used only for your POS System.
