How to integrate Customer Pole Display with POS System.

LED8 display from what I found sometimes follow no standards, they are cheap and personally I have no use for them but know they are best avoided. I am not sure if you will be able to get it to work with SambaPOS but if you can find any sort of manual, does it give you info on how to control it? If you cannot get echo test to work from command prompt trying each COM port in sequence, I would guess the display needs some sort of custom command to write (i.e. I don’t think LED8 display is as straigtforward as VFD, it might not be as simple as sending text to the display).
Sorry I can’t be much more help just wanted to mention though that likely anything related to VFD customer display won’t be relevant for LED8 type.
Also just to mention, the specification says the customer display is on COM6. Is that the port you have been testing?
EDIT: Are you sure it is a LED8 type and not VFD? Because according to the link you posted, I found the PDF brochure (http://www.ebn-pos.com/products/data/X-POS-852-V1106.pdf) and it does not have an option for LED8 customer display, all options are for either VFD or LCM (LCD type), all alphanumeric 20x2 characters.
LED8 type is like this image below. Are you sure this is the type you have?
Actually I have an LED8 display lying around (never used it before). I just tried it out, appears at least from command line it accepts digits and decimal point character sent to it. The 4 lights for price, total, collect, change can be turned on/off using ESC commands.
So @Thala, so far it does look like it is possible you might be able to get this LED8 display to work with SambaPOS, however please bear with me as I am trying to iron out a separate issue to get it to communicate with SambaPOS.
