View of the device

FG-4 device links point of sale terminals (POS) with CCTV cameras to produce a continuous overlay of transactions superimposed on video output. For the video signal, FG-4 acts as a looping device, with PAL input and PAL output. The FG-4 text inserter provides the ability to add the Cash Register/POS data to the video screen.
The device can provide additional security against fraudulent practices (such as non-registered transfers of products, registering inappropriate items, etc.). In addition, FG-4 can operate in terminal mode and display all character strings received from the POS terminal.

Description of connecting the FG-4 M1720 text inserter to a cash register/POS printer:
To connect the device to a POS printer, one needs RS-232 to RS-485 converter SNIF-42 M1721. SNIF-42 M1721 allows to monitor ("sniff") RS-232 transmission without any risk of changing the original data. This is particularly important in the case of cooperation with POS printer, which does not tolerate disruption or errors in data exchange. Therefore, it is not recommended the use other RS-232 to RS-485 converters.
