FAQ# 1099:

Can I use a phone cable to connect my printer-driven cash drawer to my printer?

Question

Can I use a phone cable to connect my printer-driven cash drawer to my printer?

Answer

No, a phone cable will not work to connect your printer-driven cash drawer to your receipt printer. While many cash drawers do use an RJ12 connector, which appears to be identical to a phone cable, the pin-out is different, which means a phone cable will not work. Further, cables differ between printer manufacturers: You will need to make sure you purchase the correct cable for both your drawer and your printer.
