To allow for easy system expansion in the future, the UPV5500 provides numerous interface ports via USB, Serial, Parallel, or through a LAN connection, facilitating the use of various peripheral devices, such as receipt- or kitchen-printers, Chip & PIN terminals and barcode scanners. A disaster recovery solution is also supplied, using the installed Drive Clone software.
