-The Pole display is USB but will emulate as a serial device once the drivers are installed. First, download and install the 8200-USB driver which will allow you to configure the port settings to be used for the device. Once installed, download and extract the 8200-2200.zip file and run the VFD_Setup.exe file. This will allow you to set the Pole Display in a number of different configuration settings.

 +===== Pole Display POS-X XP8200U =====
 +
 +The Pole display is USB but will emulate a serial device once the drivers are installed. \\
 +First, download and install the XP8200 Virtual COM Driver which will allow you to configure the port settings to be used for the device. ​
 +
 +https://​pos-x.com/​download/​xp8200-virtual-com-driver/​
 +
 +You MUST verify the serial number of the pole display and download the correct driver.\\
 +There are 3 versions: \\
 +If your serial number is equal to or less than 274590 choose XP8200_Virtual_COM_Driver_V1.exe driver.\\
 +If your serial number is equal to or greater than 274591 choose XP8200_Virtual_COM_Driver_V2.exe driver.\\
 +If your serial number is equal to or greater than BEAT290910 choose XP8200_Virtual_COM_Driver_V3.exe driver.\\
 +
 +Once installed, you may need to unplug the USB cable from the USB Port wait a few seconds and then plug it back in again for Windows to detect it. \\
 +Open control panel and Verify which COM Port the Prolific USB to Serial driver is using. \\
 +The default is 3 unless that port is already assigned to another device. ​
 +
 +
 +Now download and extract the XP8200 Configuration Utility from : \\
 +https://​pos-x.com/​download/​xp8200-configuration-utility/​ \\
 +Again, you need to download the correct one based on the serial number of the Pole Display. \\
 +If your serial number is equal to or less than 274590 choose V1 utility. \\
 +If your serial number is equal to or greater than 274591 choose V2 utility. \\
 +If your serial number is equal to or greater than BEAT290910 choose V3 utility. \\
 +
 +Once you extract the utility, run the VFD_Setup.exe file. \\
 +This will allow you to set the Pole Display in a number of different configuration settings. \\
 +
 +{{ :​pos_x:​xp8200u_pole1.jpg |}} \\
 +
 +To work correctly set the Pole display'​s Command Mode to DSP-800. \\
 +Once you select it from the dropdown, click the Download Settings To VFD button to have the DSP-800 settings uploaded to the Pole Display. You should get a popup saying it was successful. \\
 +Close the utility and open System Five. \\
 +In the POS Device Manager, go to the Pole Display tab.\\
 +
 +{{ :​pos_x:​xp8200u_pole1.jpg |}} \\
 +
 +Set the Port settings to the correct COM Port. As mentioned before, the default is 3 unless that port is already assigned to another device. The workstations I was working with had devices using COM 3 on some machines, so rather than having some on COM3 and some on COM4, I just set them all to COM4 in Windows to keep everything the same on all Workstations. \\
 +Set the Display Width to 20 because these are 20 character displays. \\
 +Set the Pole Display Model to DSP-800 \\
 +Click the Test button and have the client verify the display looks the same as the example in the POS Device Manager.
