A799 Receipt Printer

The CognitiveTPG A799 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the POS-X Ion Thermal 2.

The A799 also features two-color and monochrome printing capabilities, excellent for adding advanced logos, graphics, or coupons on your receipts. A steel frame and built-in spill resistant drainage system combine with unsurpassed thermal head and auto-cutter reliability, making the TPG A799 durable enough to provide many years of excellent service.
