The FVP-10 is designed to bring an array of new benefits like front loading, onboard USB, receipt compression for paper saving and multiple mounting options due to its “platform” design combined with the high quality and high-speed printer performance that POS users have come to expect from Star.

StarMicronics has developed the FVP-10 to assist users who:
- Have counter space challenges
- Require a splash and dust resistant printer
- Need to print a receipt as fast as possible to decrease customer wait time

The FVP-10 features an ultra high print speed of 250mm/second and front paper loading for easy paper roll changing. Its square design & front paper loading allow for it to either be easily under-counter mounted or used as a platform to mount other POS devices. The FVP-10 can support up to 7 pounds of accessories on its top. Text to voice feature enables users to communicate important information with both staff and customers. Voice alerts to remind an operator to start a specific task can easily be programmed.

  • Increases convenience and available counter space

  • Mount other devices on top of the FVP-10 to keep the counter tidy and organized.

  • Secure the FVP-10 under the counter to maximize counter space

  • Programmable voice or sound alerts for staff and customers

  • Can print at a lightning fast speed of 250 mm/sec

  • Clamshell design allows for very fast and easy paper loading
