Fujitsu Components America Inc. has expanded its line of thermal printers for kiosk applications with the addition of a 2-inch printer subassembly for medium-volume print output.

The FTP-629USL thermal printer integrates an auto cutter capable of full or partial cutting, a USB or serial RS-232C control board, an automatic paper feed, a paper holder for up to 83mm diameter rolls, and an integrated paper guide, within a horizontal, metal chassis measuring 119.5mm x 170.5mm x 104mm. The unit's double-tilt function eases maintenance for paper jam clearing and thermal head cleaning.

This ultrahigh-speed printer generates text, graphic characters and 2D barcodes at speeds up to 200mm/s with 8dots/mm resolution making it suited for banking, food service, gaming, media and photo kiosk applications. It can also be programmed for variable speeds at 40-, 80-, and 125mm/s to conserve power. The expected thermal head operating life is 100 million pulses or 100km of paper.

The FTP-629USL features a straight paper path with rear loading and auto load features. It accepts thermal ticket stock and receipt paper 60-150?m thick. Built-in detection functions include motor overcurrent protection, paper-out/near-end, and abnormal thermal head temperature to prevent print interruptions.

Pricing starts at $281 in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is stock to 16 weeks ARO.
