Windows devices don't have network communication built in like iOS and Android devices. In order to print from a Windows device, you need an Intelligent Printer to connect to your network via ethernet cable.
Only one Intelligent Printer is needed in your network. Any additional printer can be any of our Windows compatible printers below.

You might find a bargain price, but you should check that your printer works with Kounta before you hand over your hard-earned dough.
As a general rule, you can tell a printer's age by their Roman numerals. Eg. TM-T88V will work with Kounta, while the TM-T88IV & TM-T88III are just too old.
For ultra hot environments or noisy kitchens
Epson U220 Ethernet Impact Printer
Thermal printers, which use heat to transfer ink, don’t work well when they’re next to a 200ºC+ oven or frier. Instead, you’ll need an impact printer, which transfers ink mechanically. Since it’s louder than a normal printer, it’s also great for noisy kitchents where dockets get missed.
VPOS Cash Drawer EC410
This is the cash drawer we know best, but any will do as long as it uses a standard RJ12 plug.
Zebra CS3070 Bluetooth Barcode Scanner
This little guy works great. It’s compact, durable and even has a keyboard toggle to easily shift between scanning barcodes and keying in data.
Standard Thermal Receipt Paper - 80mm
This receipt paper works with our recommended ethernet printers.
Standard Duplicate Docket Printer Paper - 80mm
This paper is specifically for impact printers to print dockets in extreme heat environments where thermal printers don’t work as well.
