NEW QT-6600 EXPANDS CASIO’S FLASH ROM TOUCH TERMINAL PRODUCT LINE
The QT-6600 is a continuation of Casio’s successful flash ROM products
DOVER, NJ, May 1, 2009 -- Casio America, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a new POS/ECR flash ROM, touch screen terminal, the QT-6600. Casio’s System Products Division will introduce the QT-6600 at a series of Casio dealer meetings across the United States and Canada starting April 28th. The QT-6600 will also be highlighted at the upcoming NRA Show (National Restaurant Show) in Chicago May 16th – 19th.
| Building on the success of the QT-6000 and QT-6100 terminals, the QT-6600 is positioned as a step up model in Casio’s flagship flash ROM product line offering an expanded feature set designed for demanding hospitality and retail applications. |
The QT-6600 will incorporate many new software features that were jointly developed with Casio Computer Co., Ltd. and its US and European subsidiaries. These new features create a powerful touch screen terminal for hospitality and retail applications and are expected to make an immediate impact on the QT-6600’s success.
“We are thrilled to add this new model to our flash ROM touch terminal product line,” said Frank Romeo, Vice President of Casio’s Business Products Division. “The QT-6600 offers many of the same features and functions that are found on higher priced PC based systems, but with the stability and reliability of a cash register product -- that means no hassles of an operating system or hard drive.”
| QT-6600 software enhancements include: |
- The ability to upgrade software enhancements remotely via a FTP connection
- The option of a server upon signing on to only see their guest checks
- Employee clocking in/out using magnetic stripe card
- “Timed” PLU used to charge an hourly fee on an item (ex: pool/billiard tables)
- Centralized order number for take-out/fast food operations
- Ethernet printer interface
- Up to 16 remote printers
- 2nd Language character printing to remote and local printers
- Simplified menu explosion
- Stock master
- 60,000 scanning item file
- Not Found item file
- Age Verification
- 4,000 Customer charge file
| Like all Casio flash ROM products, the QT-6600 offers reliable and rugged performance in a new state-of- the-art design, along with new hardware features that include: |
- High Resolution 15” TFT touch display
- A standard built-in two (2) line alpha/numeric LCD customer display
- Larger standard RAM capacity

The QT-6600 software will emulate many of the great applications found on the QT-6000/6100 such as graphical icons on keys, graphical split check screen, floating guest checks, add & transfer check functionality, time & attendance, scheduler function to automate operations based on time and day, mix & match discounting, customer names on check buttons, scanning and inventory to name a few.
The QT-6600 will be positioned as the high-end terminal in Casio’s flash ROM product line complimenting the current QT-6100 nicely. The price positioning of the QT-6600 provides Casio dealers the ability to offer two (2) pricing and featured solutions; the QT-6600 for more feature demanding operations and the QT-6100 to price conscience customers desiring the advantages of a touch screen solution for their business.
Casio America will begin shipping the QT-6600’s to Casio authorized dealers at the end of April.
