Step 1: Unbox and Identify Items

The receipt paper width adapter is for smaller width receipt paper.  It is not used for Wash-Dry-Fold POS systems and may be discarded.

The cash drawer keys can be used to manually open the cash drawer in the event of a power outage, or they may be used to completely lock the cash drawer so that it cannot be opened via software on the computer.

The black serial cable is used to connect an integrated weight scale to your Wash-Dry-Fold POS computer.  It is joined to the gray serial cable that comes with your weight scale.

Ensure the cash drawer lock is set to the middle (vertical) position so that the software can open the drawer. You can remove the key when done:

Step 2: Load Receipt Paper

Tilt the monitor up and away from the cash drawer:

Lift the lever to open the receipt printer:

Wash-Dry-Fold POS systems use standard 3 1/8” width thermal receipt paper.  Be sure to insert the roll with the paper unwinding under the roll, not over the top.

Step 3: Connect Cables

The USB devices (keyboard, mouse, and label printer) can be connected to any available USB port and can be rearranged at any time.  If you have a wireless keyboard and mouse then the receiver can go into any USB port.  However, the black serial cable for the weight scale must be connected to the middle serial port (COM3) as pictured.

Wash-Dry-Fold POS computers come equipped with WiFi, but for best performance and security a wired internet connection using an Ethernet cable to your router from the LAN port (pictured, far right) is strongly recommended.

Step 4: Secure to Countertop (Optional)

Remove the cash drawer and unscrew the two screws holding on the security plate.

You can now bolt the security plate to the countertop through the four holes.  Place the computer back onto the security plate, slide into place, screw the two security plate screws back into the front, and reinsert the cash drawer.
