HP Elite Pad Point of Sale System Assemble Instructions
Unpack all equipment and make sure you have everything you need. (Printers, cash drawer, scanners, etc. are options you may not have purchased. Compare the equipment received with your Agile sales order or contract.)
NOTE: No tools are needed for assembly. However, you will need to provide a power strip connected to a power source and an Ethernet cable to provide internet access. If the tablet is being used without the docking station then you need to provide wireless internet.
Start with the cash drawer as it is heavy and place it in the location where the Point of Sale system is to be used. The power and serial cable should be positioned to the rear of the cash drawer.
Place the HP Elite Pad Expansion Dock on top of the cash drawer.
Place printers, USB scanner, keyboard, and mouse near the position where they will sit when the system is fully assembled. Route the USB and serial cables to the rear of the docking station.
It is important to take note of which USB port the star printer will plug into and the serial port for the cash drawer. These items must be plugged into the correct port or they will not function.
Connect all USB and serial cables into back of the HP docking station. Only the cash drawer and Star printer have to be connected to a particular port. However, it is recommended to plug both ticket and receipt printer into the left two USB ports as shown in the picture above. Connect the keyboard and mouse to the USB port below the network connector. Plug any other USB items into the blue USB connectors along the bottom.
Connect power cables to a power strip and connect the power trip to an electrical outlet. If the power strip has a switch make sure it is switched to the ON position.
Connect the HP docking station cover (below right) to the rear of the docking stations (below left.)
NOTE: If space is limited this would be a good time to tie-wrap, coil, or route cables so they look neater.
Raise the docking stations arm about half way up. Tilt the top smaller section (tablet cradle) of the docking station arm up and forward. The picture below shows the docking station arm raised.
NOTE: For the docking station arm to be lowered the release mechanism must be pulled forward to disengage the lock. Forcing the arm down without using the release mechanism will break the arm.
Connect the HP tablet to the docking station as described below.NOTE: The Pins on the docking station and the matching holes in the bottom of the tablet. The pins and holes must match up when docking the tablet.
The tablet unlock switch must be all the way to the right.
Loosen the hand strap so that it can easily slide over the tablet cradle when attaching the tablet to the docking station.
When the tablet makes a good connection with the tablet cradle on the docking station the tablet unlock switch will snap to the right.
Give a slight pull on the tablet to make sure it is firmly connected to the docking station.
Turn on HP tablet by pressing power switch for a few seconds. When the tablet is connected to the docking station it may automatically turn on.
Power on all equipment. Things should look like the picture below.
