Chapter 4. Setting Up the Moby8500 Dock
1. Flip the base over and locate the USB charging port (“female”).
2. Find your USB charging cable and locate the smaller male end.
3. The smaller male end gets plugged into the female charging port on the base. Before you do that, take a close look at the male end of the USB charging cable. One side is slightly wider than the other side. Align that so it is facing you as you plug it into the charging port on the base.
4. Plug the charging cable in. You can feed the USB cable through the base’s channel to keep the wire neat.
5. Flip the base back over with the cradle side facing you. You will see five contact pins. Three on the left and two on the right. These will provide constant power to the Moby8500 device.
6. Slide the Moby8500 device into the cradle, aligning the device’s contacts with the cradle’s contact pins. The Moby8500 device’s third contact on right does not have a matching cradle contact pin.
7. Plug the USB charging cable into a plug adaptor and plug it into a wall socket. Alternatively, you might have a Star TSP100III printer with a free USB port that can power your base.
Section 1. Adding the Dip Guide
The dock provides a convenient way to power the Moby8500 when it is not in use tableside. However, you can also use the dock if you plan to mount your Moby8500 device at a fixed station (for example, a counter or a bar). If so, you might want to attach the dip guide to the back of your Moby8500 device.
1. Your dock package comes with a plastic piece (dock guide) that can be attached to the back of your Moby8500 device. There’s some sticky tape on the inside of the dip guide that will help affix the dock guide to your Moby8500 device. You should peel this off before you affix it.
2. Snap the guide on the back of the Moby8500 device.
3. Slide the assembly into the dock.
4. When a customer pays with a chip card, the dock guide gives the customer a visual clue as to where to dip as well as the orientation of the chip.
