Where do the wires go?

Every now and then you need to clean the area where your KOBAS tills are located and this may mean disconnecting some or all of the wires. No matter how carefully you note down where they all went there’s a chance you forget and you till doesn’t work as it should.

This article shows you where you should plug the different wires in, but it does assume you have our standard setup and are using either a Yuno or 625 till.

Yuno

Yuno tills are the most commonly used tills running Kobas EPoS, and look like this:

yuno

Start by removing the back of the till. There is a small button on the underside of the back of the till, right beside the base – push this in and you should be able to remove the back. You should see a row of ports like this:

yuno-wires

The different colours mean:

Red : Network cable. This is the cable that goes back to your router and allows your till to communicate with your server and the wider internet.
Blue: Printer cable. Any USB printers will likely be installed on this port on your till. However, if the printer is usually plugged into a different USB port, then make sure it stays in that port and doesn’t get moved around.
Orange: PDQ cable. If your PDQ has a USB connection, it should be plugged in here. If you use Verifone PDQs that are connected over your network, then ignore this port.
Yellow: Cash drawer cable. This is the cable that comes out the back of the cash drawer. If you’re not using our tills it’s likely this cable needs to be connected to your printer.

If you’ve done the above correctly, you should see something like this:

Note: The power cable in the above picture is plugged into the DC-IN port at the far left.

625

625 tills are older till models than the Yuno, and look like this:

625

Start by tilting the screen backwards and you’ll see a row of ports like this:

625 wires

The different colours mean:
Red: Network cable. This is the cable that goes back to your router and allows your till to communicate with your server and the wider internet.
Blue: Printer cable. Unlike normal USB printers, your receipt printer MUST be plugged into this port, the others will not work.
Orange: PDQ cable. If your PDQ has a USB connection, it should go to the left of the printer port. If you use Verifone PDQs that are connected over your network, then ignore this port.
Yellow: Cash drawer cable. This is the cable that comes out the back of the cash drawer. If you’re not using our tills it’s likely this cable needs to be connected to your printer.

If you’ve done the above correctly, you should see something like this:

625 wires complete

Note: The power cable in the above picture is plugged in at the far right.
