Star 简介

Mamoru SATO

欢迎信息

STAR 成立于1950年,属于较年轻的企业,但是早在投身于世界之初,STAR 就满怀着远大的梦想和希望,目前已成长为一家 3/4 的销售额来自国外市场,一半的产品在国外生产的企业。

以”能用最小材料获得最大效益的事业”的创业精神为目标,以小型精密加工和组装技术为基础,在电子学和软件技术的融合上,也进行了积极地挑战。 以手表零件为代表的精密机械用零件为开端,在 CNC 自动车床,商用打印机,面向手机的小型音响部件等,STAR 制造的产品本身, 便是创业之初脉脉相传的追求技术之精神的历史印证, 是富有真挚的挑战精神的员工们不懈努力的结晶。

近年来,地球环保的呼声不断高涨。如何充分有效地利用有限的资源,生产出对社会有益的产品,对于 STAR 来说,这是一个巨大的课题。 本公司始终将世界作为活跃的场所,遵守全球准则,今后,为了让所有的利益相关者都能得到更多的满足,全公司仍将团结一心,继续努力。

此外,为了更加强化 CSR (企业社会责任)活动,同时重视透明性,STAR 将尽快以简明易懂的方式发布信息。

请与 STAR 共同努力, 使 STAR 的责任更强大,更有价值。

StarXpand 跨平台开发工具包

REACT NATIVE 适用的 STARXPAND™ 开发包

典型的流动 POS 系统需要为每种操作系统(OS)对应开发应用软件,例如 iOS, Android 和 Windows。但是,跨平台开发正在迅速崛起,软件工程师只需使用一种编程语言撰写一套源代码,便能开发一组应用程序给各种操作系统使用。由于跨平台开发的总体开发投资和维护成本较低廉,在可以预见的未来跨平台开发应用程序将会日益重要。

为响应这一趋势,Star 开发了 StarXpand 开发工具,最初以 React Native 为目标,并计划在日后支持其它本机和替代性跨平台环境,以帮助减少与打印机对接的开发时间和维护成本。 该开发工具包含一个崭新的 StarIO10 框架,该框架具有许多优点,其中包括异步通信,允许同时执行打印作业,减省了系统总成本,并降低错误发生的机率,同时提高了编码的可读性。 由于 StarIO10 是 emulation-free 因此一个 StarXpand 文檔便能控制任何当前的 Star POS 桌面/便携打印机。

甚么是 REACT NATIVE

React Native 结合各种操作系统开发平台的最佳部份及 React, 一套构建用户接口的 in-class JavaScript 函式库. 现时你的 Android 和 iOS 方案皆可应用, 又可应用于创建全新的应用软件上. React Native 已经广泛使用于数以千计的应用软件上,例如 Shopify, Facebook, Instagram, QQ , 不胜枚举。

关于 StarIO10

React Native 适用的 StarXpand™ 开发工具采用崭新的 StarIO10 框架,享有多项优势,例如:异步通信,emulation-free 设计,创建人类可读的指令,提升搜寻打印机速度以及操作系统与打印机之间的通讯记录功能。 StarIO10 的操作系统和打印机之间的通讯记录功能专为编程时除错和测试而量身订造。 此日志功能可以缩短出现问题时的分析时间,避免延长停机时间,并为企业节省宝贵的时间和不必要的成本。

异步通讯
Asynchronous Communication

StarIO10 提供异步通信功能,允许同时执行打印作业,这意味着开发人员无需要编写异步程序。 这样可以降低系统成本,减少错误的可能性,并提高代码的可读性。

EMULATION-FREE
Emulation Free

因为 StarIO10 支持 emulation-free, 同一套 StarXpand™ 原码可以使用在所有 Star 机上, 所以即使更改打印机型号,也毋需修改编程。

创建人类可读的指令
Human-Readable Command Creation

With human-readable command creation, StarIO10 allows users to create commands with a command builder. Next, human-readable intermediate commands and raw binary commands are generated, respectively. This process makes it easy to understand what data a printer receives, helps problem-solve, and means commands are reusable as a print format without emulation dependencies.

提升搜寻打印机速度
Faster Printer Search

进一步提速,StarIO10 让用户在一秒(10 - 300 微秒) 内搜寻所有打印机, 此特点大大改进搜寻速度, 特别是连接网络的打印机.。

操作系统与打印机的通讯记录
Log Communication

StarIO10 features log communications between the OS and the printer, which is designed to be used for debugging. This log feature can shorten analysis time when as issue arises in the field, avoiding prolonged downtime and thus saving businesses valuable time and money.

Star 的先进科技集合
Technology Portfolio

React Native 适用的 StarXpand™ 开发包只是 Star Micronics 提供的众多技术之一。 其它解决方案包括 CloudPRNT(使用户能够通过云服务直接打印到 Star Micronics 打印机)和 SteadyLAN™(通过 Lightning 或 USB-C® 线及连接到网络的打印机, 为其它移动设备提供有线上网服务)。

Star 独特的 SteadyLAN™ 技术令不稳的 Wi-Fi 讯号成为绝响

Star’s SteadyLAN™ patent pending technology is the market’s first solution to provide control of the POS printer and attached peripherals as well as network tethering to iOS, Android and Windows tablets and mobile devices via the Ethernet port of the printer. This includes iOS devices with Star’s mCP21LB, mCP31L, mCP31LB printers and supported Android, Windows and Mac devices with Star’s mCP31C and mCP31CB printers.

SteadyLAN with MC-Print3

Simply by connecting a tablet to the mC-Print printer via the standard Lightning USB or USB-C cable and connecting the printer to the internet via a wired LAN connection, the tablet is able to connect to the internet without WiFi communication. At the same time, the tablet can communicate with the printer via USB or LAN and the printer will also charge the tablet.

For locations where WiFi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, the stability of a cabled internet connection combined with the flexibility of Tablet POS is now possible.

Star’s CloudPRNT technology is now available across Star’s thermal receipt, ticket and label printers and matrix kitchen printers providing the largest range of multi-platform remote cloud receipt printers and restaurant on-line order printers available today.
Star Cloud Print

By offering online purchasing options, retail stores and restaurants are able to grow their business to expand to a larger market. Using CloudPRNT, online ordering systems have a new and easier solution to offer businesseCloud Printer restaurant orderss, allowing them to seamlessly integrate online purchasing into their stores.

CloudPRNT works with the online ordering service to store and create print jobs, and communicate status with the printer. Cloud ordering services post orders using a JSON format while the Star CloudPRNT printer will pull these orders on a defined interval.

Star’s CloudPRNT technology provides benefits to both restaurant and retail stores by eliminating the need for an extra tablet to send an online order to the printer. Instead, the ordering service will be able to communicate directly to the printer. Store owners or service providers do not need to maintain an SSL certificate for CloudPRNT printers since the printer communicates with the server as a client.
