Virtual Printer Interface for Security Camera Connectivity

VeriFone® Ruby SuperSystem®; Topaz

A new feature is now available to customers who historically have tapped into the
printer port on Ruby to interface to security cameras. The feature is also available for Topaz.
Detail:                 The Virtual Printer Interface allows security camera connectivity at sites
that use central journaling (Sapphire) and have only a receipt printer at the POS. Virtual Printer
emulates the Epson® TM-U950 printer.

Note: The data sent to the virtual printer port is subject to change without notice. VeriFone, Inc.
will not guarantee backward compatibility in the event of changes.
Requirements:          Y    Sapphire with a Base 153 or later application
Y    VeriFone Feature card with Bravo
Y  Serial cable 13836-XX
Y    Either a straight-through or null modem adapter (at some sites)
Installation:             Ruby:
1. Perform a Gemstall upgrade or a new install for a virtual printer.
2. Select an unused port on the Ruby. The port should be setup as follows:
Y   9600 baud
Y    8 bit
Y   No Parity
Y    Config bits set to 1000-0080 (Base 153)
3.   Connect the serial cable to the selected port.
4. Connect the adapter or the other end of the cable to the security camera interface.
5.   Install a VeriFone Feature Card with Bravo
6.   Reboot the unit.

1. Connect the serial cable to COM port 5. The serial port with the VeriFone cable provides RS-232
DTE (Data Terminal Equipment). If necessary, contact VeriFone for the correct adapter.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the security camera interface.
3. Install a VeriFone Feature Card with Bravo in the Sapphire unit.
Troubleshooting:     Y    Check that the Ruby workstation is configured for virtual
printer.
Y  Check that the serial cable is plugged into the correct port. Y    If using a straight thru
adapter, try a null modem adapter. Y    Check that all connections are secure.
