Fujitsu Components America has introduced a 3-inch, high-speed, thermal printer mechanism with user-selectable printing parameters, including speed, paper width, paper thickness and three black mark sensor locations. This flexibility allows customers to adapt the equipment to meet the demands of receipt, ticketing and labeling/tagging applications using a single printer.
Target markets include gaming, logistics, transportation, and parking.
Fujitsu’s 24V, FTP-x3GMCL483 printer series offers print speeds up to 350mm/sec. It also has a compact 123.7 x 40 x 61mm footprint, including the auto-cutter, making it up to 50 percent smaller than printers with similar features, according to the company.
The series comes in two models – FTP-63GMCL483 and FTP-83GMCL483.
The FTP-63GMCL483 printer offers 203dpi resolution and print speed up to 350mm/sec. The FTP-83GMCL483 comes with 300dpi resolution with print speed of up to 200mm/sec. Both feature the same modular design that lets users utilize papers ranging from 58mm to 86mm wide and 60um and 150um thick. The availability of 300dpi resolution allows customers to reduce their print size.
Additional features include three paper sensors, a one-touch platen release, auto paper loading, multiple paper insertion options, and top paper exit.
The printhead life is rated at 100 million pulses and 200km abrasion resistance. The embedded cutter has a maximum life of 2 million cuts for 60 to 100um-thick paper, and 1 million cuts for 101 to 150um-thick paper.
The FTP-x3GMCL483 printer series is available immediately. Serial and USB interface boards are also available.
