Fujitsu’s New Thermal Printer Unit Targets Compact Self-Service Kiosks

Provides durability and ultra-fast receipt output in a small footprint

Fujitsu Components America Inc.

Sunnyvale, CA, April 14, 2010

Fujitsu FTP-63AUSL001 kiosk receipt printerFujitsu Components America, Inc. today expanded its thermal printer offering with the release of a high-speed, three-inch receipt printer unit for compact, self-service devices and kiosks. This new printer unit has features that accelerate transaction times while providing long-term reliability, durability and drop-in design integration.

The new FTP-63AUSL001/002 series delivers print speeds up to 250mm/sec (9.84 inches per second) with 8 dot/mm resolution. Designed for long operating dependability, the printer has a minimum 150km total printing life. An available, heavy-duty, front-mount guillotine cutter has a minimum mechanical life of one million cuts.

To support shrinking self-service kiosk designs, the entire unit, with the optional auto-cutter, printer, and paper roll holder, is contained in a one-piece, die-cast frame measuring a compact, 130(W) x 246(D) x 125(H) mm that weighs 2.0kg. This die-cast frame enhances durability and acts as a heat-sink during continuous printing. It also reduces shock and vibration while providing mounting stability, ESD absorption, static electricity dissipation, and extreme temperature support up to -20 to +70 degrees C.

The FTP-63AUSL001 has 2-D barcode and OCR character capability, and supports up to 150um receipt paper. It is targeted to a variety of Point-Of-Sale and ticket- and receipt-generating kiosk applications across multiple industries, including retail, banking, transportation, gaming, convenience, and hospitality. With its quiet operation and high reliability, it is equally suitable for use in medical devices and scientific equipment.

Additional features include Fujitsu’s Easy-Load Mechanism, which simplifies paper loading as well as head maintenance or replacement, and several operating sensors that ensure continuous, uninterrupted performance.

Available immediately, the RoHS-compliant, FTP-63AUSL001/002 series is priced at $375.00 for the integrated mechanism/cutter/control board in 1,000-piece quantities. A Serial and a USB interface board are both available. Fujitsu will offer downloadable Windows® XP/Vista, Linux, and OPOS drivers.
