FAQ# 2111: What voltage do cash drawers typically run on?

Question

What voltage do cash drawers typically run on?

Answer

Depending on the manufacturer, most cash drawers operate on a 12 volt to a 24 volt range. The voltage is what triggers the solenoid to open the drawer. This trigger is usually sent by a receipt printer hooked up to your PC or POS System. To know the correct voltage of cash drawer to purchase, check the specifications of your receipt printer to see what cash drawer is compatible. In addition, the type of port connector you will need on your cash drawer will depend on your receipt printer. If you are unsure which connection and voltage your receipt printer is compatible with, please give our sales team a call at 1-800-903-6571 or email sales@posguys.com, and they can help you determine the best cash drawer for you.
