Fujitsu Components Asia Pte Ltd

Singapore, June 13, 2006

Fujitsu Components Asia Pte Ltd. today released its smallest and lightest high speed, battery-driven thermal printer mechanism for space-restricted designs. The new printer targets handheld and portable devices, including those for POS, measuring and medical instrumentation and receipt printer applications.

Measuring 67.5W x 31.5D x 18.5H mm, the 2-inch FTP-628MCL701 print mechanism features a narrow-width frame to accommodate compact designs. It can be mounted either vertically or horizontally to offer flexible mounting options. For portability needs, the mechanism weighs 40g.

With a variable, 4.2VDC to 8.5V operating range, the FTP-628MCL701 is capable of a maximum print speed of 80mm/sec at 8.5V. It has a print resolution of 8 dots/mm for clear, hard-copy output.

The printer has a 48mm effective printing area and accommodates various, 58mm-wide thermal papers from 60 to 100 micrometers thick. Its removable platen exposes the paper path for drop-in paper loading.

The printer features several built-in detection functions, including motor over-current protection, paper-out/near-end, and abnormal thermal head temperature. The printer has an expected operating life of 100 million pulses or 50km of paper.

The RoHS-compliant FTP-628MCL701 printer mechanism is available immediately. It is priced at $22.50 in 1,000-piece quantities. Delivery is stock to 16 weeks ARO.
