Fujitsu Components America, Inc. has released a compact, panel-mount printer unit that reduces the time and cost needed to integrate high-speed printing capabilities into a variety of receipt- and label-generating equipment. This new unit is an addition to the existing 2-inch 24VDC panel printer series, the FTP-62GUSL001-R.
The FTP-63GUSL001-R series combines a 24VDC 3-inch, direct-thermal printer mechanism with automatic cutter and an RS-232C/USB interface board within a compact, panel-mount enclosure measuring 90mm (d) x 111mm (w) x 116mm (h). Target applications include self-service POS terminals, kiosks, ATMs, scales/measuring devices, and medical equipment.
The printer accommodates a variety of 80mm wide, large-diameter thermal paper rolls with a thickness range of 60-100μm. It prints text, graphics, characters, bar codes and images at speeds up to150mm/s (1200 dotlines/sec) maximum, with 8 dots/mm resolution. Service life is rated at 100km of paper (at 12.5% print ratio).
The integrated auto cutter can be programmed for either full or partial cuts and has a minimum life of 500,000 cuts. Manual paper feed and cutting is also possible using the external switches on the front panel.
The front-accessible, drop-in paper loading feature, along with auto paper feed, a straight paper path, and a unique platen release mechanism, simplifies paper changes and minimizes maintenance needs.
The FTP-63GUSL001-R series is available immediately through distribution and local sales reps.
