Like most cash register compnaies SAM4s has also nearly stopped making a register that uses standard bond paper instead of thermal paper. Sharp cash registers does not even make a register any longer that uses bond paper.
The SAM4s ER-5115-II is the only register from a major manufactuer that has both a receipt and journal printer that uses bond paper and validates! There is also the SAM4s ER-655-II but it is receipt only and does not validate.
Although in most cases thermal printing machines are more economical but in some places thermal paper is hard to find or you may to to validate something.
The SAM4s ER-5115-II does not interface with a Datacap or much else it is a entry level cash register. Any questions please give us a call at 1-800-863-2274
