Citizen CTS281L Thermal Bill Printer

 The Citizen CT-S281L printer is a compact, yet highly featured thermal printer which prints at up to 80 mm per second on media that is 58mm wide (2.28 inches). The small size of the Citizen CT-S281L ensures that it meets requirements where space is at a premium and is ideal for a wide range of printing applications.

  •  If only limited space is available, modern design and compact size become essential characteristics for efficient POS printers. High performance and innovative technology in an expecially compact mini printer distinguish the CT-S280/281. The CT-S281L has dimensions of only 106 x 180 x 105 mm (WxDxH) and allows your customers to print 54 mm wide bill and stickers at a speed of up to 60 mm per second. There is also a serial or USB version available for this model.

    Printing of two-coloured bill at 8 dots/mm (203 dpi) is also possible with special paper. Your customers use this feature to add value to their bill with text, bar codes and artwork. For specialised processes in industry and development, the CT-S281 offers 2D bar code printing (PDF417, QRCODE) with integrated cutter. It separates logs and bill partially or fully from the roll. Equip the CT-S280/281 according to your applications with either a serial, parallel (CT-S280 only), or USB interface. As it runs with 8.5 V power supply, an additional AC adaptor is not necessarily required, and it can be connected to existing systems or computers directly. Naturally, it offers full ESC/POS compatibility. For increased flexibility with integration into existing systems, it comes with all drivers for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/2003 Server and CUPS. The CT-S280/281 is available in black or white for perfect placement in modern POS environments. Optionally, it can be wall-mounted for extra shop space in retail or restaurants. No matter which version you prefer, their high compatibility and user-friendliness in operation and configuration will definitely satisfy you.
