Able Systems Releases New Thermal Panel Printer
Apr 19, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Able Systems said that its new thermal panel printe offers a number of features which deliver real benefits in applications such as test & measurement and fire & security panels.
According to a release, these benefits include significantly lower maintenance requirements, lower development and consumables costs and easier design-in and production.
In addition, the company noted:
Designed to complement Able Systems' range of panel mount printers, the Ap1400 range is extremely small, yet it provides a massive 12m of paper from a single 36mm (di.) roll, thus significantly reducing maintenance downtime and the cost of consumables.
Another aspect of the Ap1400 is the product's availability as a complete development kit. This, in addition to the printer itself, includes all commonly required components for testing and evaluation purposes, such as cables, mounting brackets and accessories, resulting in faster design-in with fewer errors. Options of vertical or horizontal mounting will also help to decrease design-in time, as will backwards-compatible mounting points.
The Ap1400 features a linerless label capability that extends the printer's range of uses, including applications in harsh environments. With a 10kB buffer, and both 'head up' and 'paper out' sensors as standard, the product is currently available as a standard 3.5V to 8.5Vdc unit, though a wide voltage input module (9-36Vdc) is also planned. The product offers USB (2.0, full speed) or RS232 (up to 115200 baud) data communication.
The Ap1400 is useful in a range of applications, including auto ID, labeling, telemetry, mobile applications, mobile messaging equipment, data logging, vehicle-based systems, healthcare and ticketing.
Able Systems is a supplier of mini-printers.
