IRMCS delivers robust and powerful SFF CPU unit with Aralco POS software and it features metal casing with aluminum top cover as a passive heatsink and has a fanless system design.

The passive heat sink has no mechanical components and is 100% reliable. Passive heat sinks are made of an aluminum-finned radiator that dissipates heat through convection, and it works to their full capacity when steady airflow moves across the fins.

 

 

 

 

TIPS TO KEEP YOUR POS' SFF CPU UNIT COOL

 

  • Do NOT place any object on the top of the CPU unit so that the heatsink can dissipate heat to prevent overheating.

 

  • Keep the left and right side of the SFF CPU unit unblocked, leaving about 2 inches of space on both sides for ventilation.

Dirt and residue can deposit and build on your Aralco POS receipt printer's print-head over time especially dust and small bits of papers generated from daily paper-roll receipting and auto-cutting.

Without regular cleaning, the residue could become permanent and cause a "barrier" between the print-head and receipts causing reduced print quality.

 

 

 

ISOPROPYL (RUBBING) ALCOHOL

 

Isopropyl alcohol, available at pharmacies, can be used in either wipe or swab form to clean the surface of the print-head. Apply the solution to a lint-free cloth, just be sure to use rubbing alcohol with as high of a purity percentage as possible.

 

Apply a minimal amount of pressure during cleaning, enough to be effective but not enough to damage the print-head. Go over the print-head several times for a thorough cleaning. Before resuming printing, allow the print-head to dry fully.

 

 

 

 

 

CLEANING TIPS

 

  • Do NOT use any cleaners while the printer is on.

 

  • Get loose dust particles out of the way by lightly blowing inside the print mechanism before you begin cleaning.

 

  • Remove any watches or jewelry that could scratch the print-head or surrounding pieces.

 

  • Avoid touching the print-head anywhere except the edges, even the lightest touch could potentially damage the print-head glass.

LIFE SPAN OF POS RECEIPT PRINTER'S THERMAL PRINT HEAD

 

The life span of the print head is about 150 km of printing depending on models, therefore, parts replacement for the print head is required when it is worn out like any consumable items - contact IRMCS for a quote.
